From YouTube: “BLACK is a brand new day-long festival, but its organizers hope it becomes part of The Movement permanently. Pam Ross with the Central Indiana Community Foundation and Nigel Long of GANGGANG talk about only some of what's happening (they're also giving away grant money to community groups, in addition to the sweet tunes coming from the stage!) It's this Sunday, August 7 at the Taggart Memorial Amphitheatre at Riverside Park.”
