There is now an alternative for those who are not looking forward to this year’s presidential inauguration.
The Peace Ball, set to take place on January 19 at the National Museum of African American History & Culture, is a celebratory gathering of “artists, activists and progressives.” While the event isn’t protesting Donald Trump, it’s being seen as an alternative celebration to the festivities honoring him.
Unlike the inauguration, this event seems to have had no issues with booking talent. Some of the big names that are set to attend include Angela Davis, Solange Knowles, Esperanza Spalding, Ashley Judd and Danny Glover.
I’m sure several alternative events will be popping up in the coming weeks. Rest assured you can probably expect some protests too.
