“It is my belief that every person has an inner-activist within them, but not all are capable of fighting in the front lines of protests and marches,” says Naje Badu. “My art allows me to tap into that part of myself that screams against injustice. My art is my voice, my contribution to society.” Badu, a founding member of TheRhyze!, has committed to donating a significant portion of proceeds raised from this event to the organization.
“This is our inaugural event, one that we are super excited about hosting. Naje is the perfect artist to help kick-off our vision. Her work speaks to vision of TheRhyze!,” says Caroline Durham, Director of Business Development and Community Outreach for TheRhyze!. “Much like we teamed up with Naje, we look forward to partnering with other creative people all over the world who wish to lend their works for a good cause.”
