Come together for a time and place to kick back and relax with friends at our new Peace Cafe in the gallery for a summer series of five evenings of free entertainment in a coffeehouse setting. Each evening in the series will include live music by local musicians with a light meal of soup and bread with coffee, tea and lemonade. Featuring Rev. Robert Jones, Sr, a native Detroiter and an inspirational storyteller and musician celebrating the history, humor and power of American Roots music. His deep love for traditional African American and American traditional music is shared in live performances that interweave timeless stories with original and traditional songs. As an ordained minister and a Baptist pastor, he has an unwavering faith in the cultural importance of sacred and traditional American roots music. For more than thirty years he has entertained and educated audiences of all ages in schools, colleges, libraries, union halls, prisons, churches and civil rights organizations. At the heart of his message is the belief that our cultural diversity tells a story at should celebrate, not just tolerate.

Line 5 is an aging old pipeline beneath the Straits of Mackinac. It carries light crude oil and natural gas, and is owned by the same company (Enbridge) that allowed the Kalamazoo River oil spill to occur. This pipeline poses too great of a risk to our Great Lakes. A flotilla is a large group of kayaks/kayaktivists demonstrating on the water for a cause, or calling for an action. Tribal jiimanns are invited. We will gather in a good way to create a flotilla to bring awareness to Line 5. If this pipeline breaks, it will devastate the pristine Waters of Lake Michigan for centuries. Many people are unaware of the danger that will completely change our way of life. #ShutDownLine5 #NoTunnel Bring your own kayak or rent one through Great Turtle Kayak Tours! Kayak Rental: ty@mackinackayak.com or 517-706-7791 We are accepting financial help. Please give and help us make this event successful.

The Huntington Woods Peace, Citizenship & Education Project is planning a Celebration of International Peace Day on Saturday, September 21st at The Swords into Plowshares Gallery. It will take place from 11:00am to 2pm and it is called The Possibility of Peace – A Detroit Celebration of International Peace Day. We would love to have your participation. Please join us and represent your group by bringing a reading, a poem or a song to inspire peace. At 12 noon we will join in the Minute of Silence/Moment of Peace which is happening in each time zone, resulting in a “Peace Wave” around the world. This will be followed by further poetry readings and a ukulele sing-a-long. We will then march to Campus Martius and back or gather at the corner of Adams and Woodward to pass out literature or handouts to those passing by while displaying our peace signs
