Sure, there’s lots in a name… but there was nothing ordinary about last Sunday’s ‘Politics as Usual’ cypher at Stoney’s Barbershop in Atlanta’s Old Fourth Ward. SFC’s Source One laid down classic cuts for local lyricists to come off the dome with some of the most politically charged and witty freestyles ever dropped. Special shout out to Fulton County Commissioner Joan Garner, Atlanta Councilman Kwanza Hall, and Fourth Ward rapper Pill who served as panelists for the event. From their barber chairs they dropped gems of knowledge about the importance of civic engagement, community activism, and voting.
"Politics as Usual" would not be possible without the support of ArtPlace America, the Feminist Women’s Health Center, and Georgia Stand Up with on-site voter’s registration. In addition, a special thanks and shout out to Local Old Fourth Ward businesses Space Shop, Noni’s, and Harold’s Chicken and Ice Bar for also supporting the effort through their kind sponsorship and contributions. Thank You all.
