Bruised But Not Broken: A Fundraiser For Haiti
On January 1, 1804, the people of Haiti made a declaration of Independence that was triumphantly heard around the globe. Upon establishing the first independent nation by and for blacks, the people of Haiti developed a sense of pride that affected not only the inhabitants of the country, but also people of color worldwide.
January 12, 2010 was the fateful date in which the people of Haiti would have to use the same courage and drive once again, to liberate the nation as a result of a catastrophic natural disaster. Though the time has passed since that devastating earthquake that shook the world, the wounds have yet to heal.
Royalty Media Groups proudly presents A Declaration of Independence: a Fundraiser for Haiti. It will blend the creative talents of musicians, designers, models, and activists to make sure that 3 months later the spirit of Haiti will be restored and celebrated. Even though 200 years have lapsed since the declaration in Saint-Domingue, the pride of the people is still inspiring and impassioned today. We will raise enough funds to say that although Haiti is bruised, her spirit is not broken.
Please join Royalty Media Group, the Columbia University Caribbean Student Alliance, DeFranchis Materials, Frankie, Jules Eyes, YellownBlu, Olin Edzione, BVintage, Ma’at, DJ TastyKeish, Likwuid and the Santos Party House for A DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE: A FUNDRAISER FOR HAITI on March 30, 2010 at 7pm. Tickets will be available online at www.ticketweb.com and at the Santos Party House box office.
