As part of an ongoing effort to unite the various communities of Athens and draw attention to issues of race relations and fair policing, artist and activist Mokah Jasmine Johnson has organized an eclectic night of music featuring handpicked duos paired across stylistic and cultural boundaries. Featured performers include Repunza and Jay Gonzalez, Bain Mattox and Blacknerdninja, Celest Ngeve and Conner Mack Tribble, Squalle and Chris McKay, Stella and Michael Wegner and many others. Proceeds from the show benefit Chess and Community, artist Broderick Flanigan’s First Friday series and Johnson’s own VIP Girls dance program. Athens-Clarke County police Chief Scott Freeman will co-host.
