[COMMUNITY EVENT] DCARA and Bay Area Black Deaf Advocates are co-hosting a series of #blackhistorymonth events at the Deaf Community center in San Leandro. We will kick off on Feb 1st with an event called an open stage (aka open mic for hearing) event where anybody who wants to perform on stage can do so. The MC for the event will be our local gem, Chris Joseph. The event begins at 7pm with $5 cover charge (kids under age 5 free). Feb 2nd, we will have Black Deaf Expo with various booths, entertainment, and children activities from 10-4pm. Finally, there will be a one-man show by a well-known artist, Christoper Smith, on Feb 16th from 6-8pm. More info to follow but at the meantime, contact Ruan Poindexter if you have any questions.

Ann: There is no admission fee — oh, no.
Ann: There will be $5 admission fee for Friday and Saturday events.
