Vivamus sit amet semper lacus, in mollis libero. Nulla eu pretium massa.

AFI Docs Film Festival

June 19 - 23: This is the top documentary film festival in the US. It’s the only only one that offers an opportunity to connect film audiences with national opinion leaders, filmmakers and intriguing film subjects. Screenings take place across DC and at the world-class AFI Silver Theatre. Fun Fact: Spike Lee is on the festival’s Advisory Board.

NMWA: FRESH TALK: Accessory to Action — Adorning Wakanda

June 30: Join Marvel Comic’ first licensed jewelry designer, Douriean Fletcher, for a conversation about how she created the power-packed accessories for the film Black Panther and how we communicate gender, power, and expertise through adornment.

I am honored to have been invited to this event as a social media ambassador, and I can offer ONE of you a free ticket. Email me saying you’re interested and I will randomly select someone to give it to!

DC Jazz Festival

June 7 - 16: Groove to the music of the 15th annual festival. The JazzFest presents acclaimed artists, such as Jon Batiste & Stay Human and Snarky Puppy, as well as emerging ones from the DC area. It’s such lively experience - great chance to sit on the grass with a glass of wine or browse the many pop-up stands.

What l really love about JazzFest is that it’s not only limited to it’s four main stages at The Wharf. Throughout the District, you can find smaller performances thanks to the “Jazz in the ‘Hoods” series.

Smithsonian Folklife Festival

June 29 - 30: This has always my favorite DC festival, and I’m hoping that doesn’t change due to this year’s festival changes! This year will be a free two-day event exploring the social power of music, as part of the Smithsonian Year of Music initiative. Goldlink will be performing for free!

Regardless of how this year goes, the 2020 festival will revert back to it’s usual ten-day schedule and focus on how people use cultural knowledge to adapt to environmental change, with programs from Brazil, Benin, the Baltics, and southern U.S. states.
