After a fantastic kickoff and a great meeting with State Senator Holly Mitchell (who agreed to contribute $1000 to the campaign) it’s time to kick the campaign to elect Daniel Lee to Culver City Council into high gear. Our first campaign fundraiser will be at the Mayme Clayton Museum at 4130 Overland Avenue 90232 on February 13th 2016 from 4 to 6:30 pm.
The Mayme A. Clayton Library & Museum (MCLM) is home to the Mayme Agnew Clayton Collection of African-American History and Culture. The collection contains over two million rare books, films, documents, photographs, artifacts, and works of art related to the history and culture of African Americans in the United States, with a special focus on Southern California and the American West. The collection is one of the most important collections chronicling the history and culture of Americans of African descent in the United States of America.
Currently the museum is exhibiting: “Performance Portraits” by jazz photographer Bob Barry. An exhibit of portrait photographs of jazz performers and notables taken by photographer Bob Barry. In the Great Room foyer.
In addition to being able to view the collection and the current exhibit attendees will be treated to music by friend and Grammy nominated recording artist Aloe Blacc (Interscope) who recently performed at the White House Holiday Party and enjoy comedy from comedian Byron Bowers (The Eric Andre Show, Why? with Hannibal Buress, Jimmy Kimmel).
Please save the date so we can experience a night of political activism and cultural enrichment together while raising funds for the campaign. Please share this event with Culver City residents, museum enthusiasts, family, friends, and fans of great R&B. Tickets are $50 and $25 for students. But, all are welcome regardless of means.
