Live From Joshua Tree, Mil-Tree’s spoken word fundraiser is tonight at The Sanctuary, Joshua Tree Retreat Center, 7:00 PDT.
Live From Joshua Tree – a Live and Live Stream spoken word event – is a community celebration with desert stories, songs and poetry. I’m pleased to be one of the featured speakers and to support Mil-Tree Veteran Project. Live From Joshua Tree is curated by Cheryl Montelle, Founder of Mil-Tree Veteran Project, which creates community with veterans, active duty military and civilians by building bridges through the arts, inclusive dialog, and shared projects.
The focus of my story will be my contradictory role in the desert and the visual interpretation of the untold stories of African American desert homesteaders, Contradictions – Bringing the Past Forward. Also sharing their Desert stories and songs are Gabriel Hart, Pat Kearns, Chakra Khan, Josh Kjerstad, Lisa Lynn Morgan, Renee Asher Pickup, Miguel Rivera, Nell St. John and Seth Zaharias.
