Freedom Friday: The Friday the 13th Edition

Courtesy of

Hello Good People!

I know today is Friday the 13th, but I am not too superstitious.  And I haven’t met a Friday I haven’t  liked.  🙂 So make sure to enjoy this weekend—food and wine festivals are kicking off and Passport DC’s Embassy tours are on Saturday.  Enjoy! Peace and Blessings. 🙂


This Friday, it’s the 3rd Annual JB vs. STEVIE Soul Power Party: Tribute to the Titans of Taurus & Battle of the Bulls! Co-Sponsored by DC’s newest media outlet: React Radio 1480AM, this year’s legendary party features a Major League Line-Up of DJs playing the best of Stevie Wonder & James Brown all nite long. Only here, once a year do you get the opportunity to hear: Jahsonic (Jamil Hamilton) + DJ Roddy Rod + Adrian Loving + DJ Lance Reynolds + i:Wah the BeatPriest (Jawanza Kalonji)rock out on the same nite in the same spot.
