Don't Say...

"'Don’t say [redacted],' they say. But if someone does say it, then go ahead and out them to the office, and the office will out them to their parents and whatever reaction the parents have is their right to have."

Dancing to the drum beat at the Afro Roots Fest

Bo Diddley Plaza teemed with festival-goers of all ages, from the elderly lounging in lawn chairs to children dancing in hula hoops in front of the stage. Above, colorful lights casted patterns of violet, red, blue and green onto a brick backdrop and performers below.  A musician stepped up to the microphone. His strong voice boomed out a call-and-response scat melody, beckoning to the audience. More than 100 people eagerly participated in the dancing crowd, echoing back the improvised syllables.
