By: Meme Agency
On April 3rd from 7pm-9pm, Jonathan Lykes, along with other black artists, organizers, and cultural workers from across the United States will launch the Black Joy Experience Virtual Concert on Zoom and Facebook live stream. In the recent light of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Black Joy Experience Concert is going live to spread a message of joy, healing, and holistic energy. The concert will build connection and healing energy through movement and organizing spaces as a mechanism to cultivate joy, love, resilience, and a commitment to envision how our cultural, political, and economic futures will forever be changed by the coronavirus pandemic. With social distancing being the new norm, Jonathan Lykes states, "I want to change the narrative. Instead of social distancing, let's be physically distant in this time for safety, but let us be more socially connected than ever before. That's the reason we wanted to do this concert."
In addition to pushing his own causes, Jonathan also helps others by assisting in building their own non-profits by providing education and training on equity, justice and liberation praxis to help them tackle the issues of our time.
