Congrats To K’s Kicks!

K's_KicksThe winner of our Salisbury-Rowan Black Business Pitch Contest was Kari Johnson of K’s Kicks! Our winner received a monetary, service, and media package that was provided by local black owned businesses and organizations. Because of our community’s generosity, we were able to provide a service package for all contestants! Our other contestants were Sierra Watkins of SieBration Bar and Destiny Stone and Daniel King of The Music House Inc..

Kari is a lover of all things creative. Music, writing, and art are passions of hers. She is a 2007 graduate of Livingstone College with a Bachelor’s degree in English. She hopes to continue growing her business K’s Kicks as well as writing her Children’s book series Dallas Does based on her 6 year old daughter.

Kari began K’s Kicks in 2018 after personal projects she shared online were praised and people began to inquire about her work. She realized that everyone has a pair of shoes they aren’t ready to part with that she is able to bring back to life. Over the course of a year through social media and word of mouth, a buzz has began in the Rowan community as well as other places about her work. Her ultimate goal is to be able to focus 100% on her business and partner with schools in the community to provide shoes to students each year.

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.**
