Creative Exchange Fosters Artists, COVID Conversations
From The Sacramento Observer:
“The Creative Exchange, an event designed to help Black artists with their professional development, returned Saturday after being put on hold due to the pandemic.
Hosted by California Black Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Jay King, the event featured sessions on film and music, vendors and dance performances in nearby and a keynote speech from KBLA Talk Radio’s Tavis Smiley.
However, the conference was about more than just art this year. As COVID-19 case numbers slowly tick up in Sacramento, the event also hoped to address persistently low rates of vaccination among the Black community.”
