The Bayard Rustin Community Breakfast is an annual forum created by the AIDS Action Committee of Massachusetts to recognize the roles of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people from communities of color in the fight against the AIDS epidemic. The Breakfast is an opportunity for us to come together as a community to be informed, affirmed and empowered. The inspiration for this event has been drawn from the human rights, civil rights, and social activism of Bayard Rustin. Bayard Rustin was an African American gay man whose life of engagement and leadership in the political movements for social justice, including the civil rights movement, identify him as a hero and role model for future generations. The Breakfast strives to reflect Rustin's activism, humanitarianism, and artistic ideas by creating a multicultural, spiritual, and educational celebration.
Join us at this year's Bayard Rustin Community Breakfast for inspiring speakers, a wonderful breakfast and amazing musical performances by:
FOUNDATION MOVEMENT!!! -- A socially conscious group of young artists offering lyrical commentary on issues of injustice & oppression laced with hot beats. Foundation Movement members; Eroc, Optimus, and DJ El are a diverse group of young artists with origins from Puerto Rico, Liberia, and Guatemala, who all met in Boston and united to form the group. This cultural fusion, as well as their experiences growing up in Boston, has influenced The Foundation's music. Not another rap group with watered down lyrics, and messages of misogyny and materialism..... Visit their website at http://www.foundationhiphop.net/
AND... TRE ALEE, a talented singer, songwriter and producer who enjoys sharing her blessing of a beautiful voice with others.
