The Mayor of Baltimore is well liked, young , beautiful, black , and a woman. She , Stephanie Rawlings- Blake was the guest of honor at the fundraiser for Center Stage, the state theatre of Maryland, which was held at the talented designer’s studio donated by Kwame himself ( impeccable menswear and now furniture designer!) . Charisse Nichols,who put the whole thing together, was a lovely host and a pleasure to work with. I was pleasantly surprised to witness Occupy Baltimore and drop in to show some support while briefly in town. There was a strong turnout and a great vibe at both events. Everybody was playing a part in funding the arts at Kwames studio which is another reason to camp out in front of finacial centers- the US will fund war weapon manufacturing but not the arts. Viva la revolution !!!!!!!!!!!
