On January 6th, Blackbuster Films in collaboration with Ethnic Crew, showcased their second film screening and potluck featuring the AFRO•futurism culture. The event took place at SuRu located in downtown Oakland. For those who don’t know, SURU Clothing is not only a dope spot to buy some fresh kicks and some quality threads, the shop also serves as a space that artist in the Bay can come together, and express themselves as well as showcase their art to the rest of the community. January 6th was definitely a night full of deep thought, great food, and of course great vibes. If you missed out, be on the lookout for the next wave. Enjoy.

The Man With a Vision // KHAMALL HOWARD
Introduce yourself for those who don’t know.
I’m Khamall. A lover, dreamer, and visionary with a purpose to spread peace and change the world for the better. brother, son, boyfriend, homie librarian, music junkie, media fanatic, and unapologetic black man.
I Love how ironically beautiful the Bay is. So original but, so fake. Culture is so solid but there are culture vultures on every block. Game was refined here by Africans who’ve settled here over the years. Strong Black energy.
You have made a name for yourself in the Bay Area because of all the dope events that you host. How did your journey of being a creator of events begin?
To see something that touches you and makes you want to become active whether passively aggressively, mentally, spiritually, or physical. Just become activated to create a memory.
To be on the page is just has to be dope. from or about people of african descent. and approved by to me to review its quality and aesthetic. i look for positive, appealing, legitimate, relevant, and relatable

However, because her family lived in the Bay, she had an early appreciation for what the Bay has to offer. Now that she lives in the Bay, she wants to use her insight and love for the Bay Area to help alter the negative stereotypes of the Bay that some people may have. @odilciab
