What a night this was. The Mahoganee Xperience truly came alive, I was able to truly live in and give the Xperience I’ve always dreamed about. There were several components happening at once and they all flowed seamlessly. I was able to merge my passions of Music, Visual Art, Photography and Poetry in one Space.
Happy Black History Monf.
