What is the Shakti Speak Easy?
Dress to the NINES and express yourself through your presence at the first annual Shakti Speak Easy. Featuring a night of inspirational speeches by Dr. Cynthia McKinney and Gloria Flora, vibration raising music by Little Star and Alais Clay, engulfed in a gallery of paintings by Ashton Hullinger. We intend to fully celebrate the freedom of expression, free speech, and community empowerment.

Why is it happening?
Saloons in New England, especially during the prohibition era, were known commonly as "speak-easies" because of the practice of speaking quietly about them, or inside of them, so as not to alert the police. We believe we need these types of spaces again. Not to drink booze, but to share ideas, organize and protect our rights in these changing political times alongside sharing in celebration and community.
