The 'Bag Lady, PUT YA BANGS DOWN' Open Mic
Inspired by the iconic song by Erykah Badu, "Bag Lady," The Monday Night 'Put Ya Bags Down' Empowerment Open Mic is a safe space designed to offer a refreshing time of self-expression and healing. Say the things that need to be said but never were, release the weight, put ya bags down... as Badu's wisdom states, "all you must hold on to... is YOU,... is YOU,... is YOOOOOOOOOU!..." because "one day... all them bags, gon' get in yo' way." STARTING SPRING 2021
