Quilombo at Prospect Pond This Tuesday

A little something to add to your weekly Crown Heights/Prospect Heights cultural calendar: Quilombo at Prospect Pond is a new weekly event, kicking off with an inaugural party this Tuesday, March 16. The event is named for the Quilombos of Brazil, which organizer Nadine Friedman described as "democratic settlements created by escaped slaves of mostly Brazilian descent, but also a community of people of every color and ethnicity- sort of a sanctuary for the oppressed and seeking." She added "I think it's a great metaphor for the neighborhood, which is still finding its identity and places that can still feel like home."

Their kickoff will feature drink specials, live music from Fuego Campo of Noble Society, and artwork from Sebastian Andia, starting at 7pm.
