Meet the Author: Yanatha Desouvre

"Engaging and impossible to put down", To Whom Much is Given, is Yanatha Desouvre's debut novel which readers have described as "James Bond meets Luther; with a dash of Marvel's X-Men and Mission Impossible sprinkled with Haitian hot sauce." Among action packed cliff hangers, Desouvre captures the complexity of the human spirit in this fictional, yet realistic culturally relevant mystery brimming in believable and intentionally broken characters, leaving you wondering what is next for this witty and courageous crew.

BLACK LILY UPRISING

to May 1

BLACK LILY UPRISING

What is Black Lily?

Origin: Black Lily was a legendary open mic collective in late 1990's Philadelphia that was started by Grammy award winners Questlove and his bandmates: The Roots. The open mic night started out of necessity to find like minded talent to fill a void that was missing on mainstream radio and in music at that time. Black Lily grew to legendary status and spawned the careers of not only The Roots, but many other multi-platinum acts of the more cerebral neo soul/r&b/hip hop era of the early 2000's including Jill Scott, Erykah Badu, Common, Mos Def, Talib Kweli, Musiq Soulchild, the late J Dilla and many more who have influenced what we listen to today.

What is BLACK LILY UPRISING? Simply put, it’s the inspired continuation of that legendary movement now based in West Palm Beach and focusing on South Florida's gifted music and art scene. Black Lily Uprising makes it's debut during the internationally famous SUNFEST festival week at one of the Palm Beaches hottest art spots: WINE SCENE, which can best be described as part gallery, part ultra lounge, part New York style warehouse.
