You never know who is going to show up. First it was WJLA Anchor, Maureen Bunyan.
And and now it’s Mario Van Peebles who may be one of the coolest people I’ve ever met.
I was fortunate enough to attend a meet and greet before the official 5th bloom of bloom, last Saturday, featuring “African Diaspora for Obama” to help get out the vote. From their Web site:
In the “Fifth Bloom of Bloom,” BloomBars has joined forces with African Diaspora for Obama for a night of Music, Art & Inspiration to GET OUT THE VOTE. Mario Van Peebles was our featured speaker along with musical performances by Yvette Benjamin, Kuku, Vicky Leyva, Mbuutu, Anna Mwalagho, Ssuuna and many more.”
