Jackson College Potter Center Virtual Shows. With performing arts venues closed in the region, the Potter Center at Jackson College will offer a Virtual Series, free for the community. Mojo and the Bayou Gypsies. This is All-Original American Roots Music And Stories In The Louisiana Bayou Tradition at Its BEST! The Bayou Man, Mister MOJO, and his troupe of near-mad musical provocateurs, have poured Louisiana Fire on audiences across the planet for over a quarter century. Few performers can lift an audience like Mojo, star of the Bayou Gypsies, performing all original Louisiana music certified by the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame. The music reflects the Louisiana Zydeco band as well as Cajun and New Orleans two-steps, rock and roll and blues rhythms. Mojo combines the styles in a gleeful gumbo he calls “red hot mojo music”. The band delivers a thrilling crescendo of Cajun accordion, fiddle, rubboards and more. According to Performing Arts Center Directors, Fans, and Producers, none match the unbridled fever this charismatic singer/accordionist and his band bring to the stage. View show here!
Take Back the Night Virtual Fitness Fundraiser. April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM). This year’s theme is “We Can Build Safe Online Spaces.” Sexual harassment, assault, and abuse can happen anywhere, including online. As we connect online— whether in workspaces, classrooms, or social media platforms—we can learn how to practice digital consent, intervene when we see harmful content or behaviors, and ensure that online spaces are safe and respectful. Locally, AWARE, Inc. will be hosting a virtual fitness fundraiser sponsored by Henry Ford Allegiance Health that will run April 1 – 30, 2021. The mission is a total of 33.5 miles, and you have until April 30th to complete your journey. Miles can be tracked by any of the following exercise activities: steps, running, walking, cycling, swimming, rowing, elliptical, skiing, or wheelchair. As a special thanks everyone who signs up will receive a teal ribbon pin that you can proudly wear showing your support of survivors. We encourage you to take a picture and post to social media with the hashtag #SAAM2021 and to tag AWARE in the post. The cost to join is $30 per person. Funds raised will be used to support the operating costs to implement sexual assault services. Services include legal advocacy, emergency shelter, counseling, and accompaniment during a medical exam.
