First Legacy CCU – New Account Drive

P8perglass Jewelry/Beads and The Vine Event Planning is co-hosting a “New Account Drive” during the entire month of September at First Legacy Community Credit Union in Salisbury, NC. We’re encouraging the local Salisbury/Rowan County African American community to “bank black”. This is a movement taking place across the United States signifying a shift towards economic empowerment at a local community level. Our hopes is that this is the beginning of greater things to come towards building a stronger community.

Dunbar Center Commemorative Event

IMG_4373

Join Renaissance Arts Program (RAP) as we commemorate the Dunbar Center. RAP is a grassroots collective initiative recently started by local artists and community organizers. Our goal is to expose local African American youth to their culture and heritage through the arts.

We felt that it was important that someone respond to the burning of Dunbar Center. We have accepted this task and have planned an event for Black History Month. The event is Saturday February 21st from 12noon-3pm at Southern City Tabernacle AME Zion Church, 940 South Long Street, East Spencer, NC. The purpose of this event is two fold. 1) Commemorate historical significance of Dunbar Center 2) Introduce RAP’s vision to community.

Vendors interested in being a part of this event should contact Tonya Cross at cross.tonya@gmail.com. **There is NO VENDING FEE; we ask that vendors donate 10% of sales to arts program.**

Moving Forward: We-The-People Coalition

Legacy MonthOur very own, Tonya Cross, was a part of a panel discussion hosted by We-The-People Coalition on Tuesday, November 25th at Love Christian Center, East Spencer, NC. The event was in response to the Ferguson decision not to indict Officer Darren Wilson for the murder of Michael Brown. It was an assembly of community citizens, activists, and organizations. The purpose was to provide a forum to openly express feelings, concerns, and resolutions relating to Ferguson and our local African American community.

The discussion moderator was Scott Teamer, president of the Salisbury-Rowan NAACP Branch. Other panel speakers were Rev. Carrie Bolton, Rev. Anthony Smith, Kenneth Fox Muhammad, Kenny Hardin, and Alex Clark. Topics discussed included the need for collective action, economic development, community leadership, knowledge of self, and community collaboration.

Birthed from the meeting was a collective action to create a database of community organizations and local businesses. The Vine Events has accepted the task of collecting the data and we need YOUR HELP. Visit We-The-People Database to submit information about your community organizations and/or businesses to include in the database.
