Greetings! As we opened our GBE Black Arts Month, Lloyd Williams and Voza Rivers of the Greater Harlem Chamber of Commerce joined us, and Rivers set the stage for the month with what he and the Harlem Arts Alliance are calling “Art-ivism,” i.e., activism in the arts. We are sending out appreciation to all our artistically gifted ones this month but especially to those who choose to use their art to make a difference in the world. Onward to the “Art-ivists” among us!
