On East Main St. DJ BHB’s sub woofers rocked the block as a crowd of teens and adults gathered around to watch break dancers windmill and battle! This community wants to #DanceForAChange ! A community open event with food, games and positive influences opened the eyes of the community on early Sunday afternoon. Diggy Dulche founder of Art Over Ignorance, organized the event upon recent rise in local homicides and drug over doses in Columbus.
“This event is to encourage people to be the change they want to see in their communities. Our children won’t grow old if we’re not lengthening our lives by having compassion for each other, coming together and making the change.”- Diggy Dulche
Her joining forces with DJ BHB, community leader and founder of the Hip Hop Expo established 23 years ago, with an outside stage, music and dancing could be the remedy needed to spark the change. Columbus has seen over 40 homicides this year and recently a morgue in Dayton ran out of space for deaths seen from drug overdoses.
