ABOUT LIVE IN COLOR
The debut “LIVE IN COLOR” was held on May 5, 2018 at the Purple Buffalo in North Charleston, South Carolina. Described as a celebration of color and hip-hop culture, it was an official part of the City of North Charleston’s annual Arts Fest. In fact, “LIVE IN COLOR” was the first hip-hop event in the 36 years of Arts Fest. With over 130 attendees and 60 submitted coloring sheets, the event was considered a rousing success by both the producers of the event, Charleston Sticks Together, and the Cultural Arts Department for the city of City of North Charleston.
