Countdown to the Holidays, conscious party with DJ Nadeeah Eshe (Spirits in Motion) and Eric Blackwell founder of DJs Against Hunger discuss the DJ movement for food security with AfrobeatRadio hosts Wuyi Jacobs & Tseliso Thipanyane.
DJs Against Hunger is an initiative started by Brooklyn professor, philanthropist, house head and cultural impresario Eric Blackwell. Realizing that food insecurity is a form of injustice he endeavored to create a platform for house heads and specifically DJs to garner their influence to do good in the communities they party in.
DJs Against Hunger aims to set up drop off spots at ALL major parties to collect non-perishables that will go to the food bank or food pantry in that given city. Atlanta and Chicago have already played host to events powered by DJs Against Hunger with more cities coming aboard! A number of DJs have already pledged their support through short videos and vine.
While DJs Against Hunger was started by house heads it is not genre-specific. All DJs of all music styles and genres are encouraged to get down with this worthwhile cause. Why? Because food shortage are real and people need to eat!
