    Nikkita Oliver’s speech was moving and very uplifting. She moved and motivated the crowd to have a positive energy and to fight for what we believe in. Can’t wait to see more of these kinds of events!

    Open mic was fun!!!!!! With heartfelt speech addressing “the stony road we trod”, to uplifting song such as “Hey Ya” by OutKast, I was deeply inspired by the speakers and the crowd, more firmly believing that we need to unite to fight this on going war for all human rights.
