TEDx - King-Lincoln-Bronzeville

The King-Lincoln Bronzeville District is a historically African-American area in Columbus, Ohio. Originally known as Bronzeville by the residents of the community, it was rebranded as the King-Lincoln District by former Mayor Michael B. Coleman in hopes of revitalizing and highlighting the historical significance of the district. Home to the historic Lincoln Theater and the King Arts Complex, this near east side neighborhood was the heart of an affluent African-American business and entertainment district in the 1930s and ‘40s. The name TEDx King-Lincoln Bronzeville commemorates the history and contemporary vibracy of the area.

Although there are many great TEDx events in the midwest there aren’t any that are intentional about pushing to
the surface the ideas, narratives and hard work everyday diverse people are creating, sharing and living to make their neighborhood a better place. Our goal is to highlight the unique and creative lives of this diverse neighborhood and show how their experiences connect to national and global narratives and solutions.

New Black Eastside Songbook

New Black Eastside Songbook

Streetlight Guild presents an encore performance of “The New Black Eastside Songbook,” a six-song suite conceptualized by Columbus writer Scott Woods, featuring new music composed by Counterfeit Madison, Paisha Thomas, Krate Digga, The Ogun Meji Duo (Mark Lomax and Eddie Bayard), and Jordan Sandidge. “The New Black Eastside Songbook” is an exploration of black life and culture in Columbus historically and now, touching on subjects ranging from local jazz legends and privilege to the police and gentrification. It interrogates the definition of Columbus culture, and what relationship such culture might have to the people who both create and partake of it. Utilizing some of Columbus’ brightest musical talent across a variety of styles and backgrounds, this work seeks to establish a bar for the marriage of political context and musical examination, adding new bricks to the foundation of whatever Columbus culture may entail.
