Community Unity Day

Berlin keeps me on my toes.  For everything I see, there are countless things that I miss like the work of Anthony Baggette of Clear Blue Water.  I made it down to Kreuzberg to catch Community Unity Day 4 at Südblock as part of the Black History Month Celebration and saw amazing performers that I never saw before. I was treated to a night of music, dance and poetry from people of enormous talent.  Each performer had the ability and wealth of material to hold their own show yet they shared the stage and collaborated effortlessly.  I look forward to following many of the performers that I discovered there.

Enjoy the photos below.  I have video of the event coming soon.
