Subject: IMPORTANT NEWS ABOUT FREE2FLOW SUMMIT
IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT CONCERNING FREE2FLOW SUMMIT. For everyone who is making plans to attend the Free2Flow Summit on Saturday, I have some important news for you. The event was in the Clarion Ledger today, which brought people to the website and thus a glance over the topics that were being discussed. The church has informed me that they are now uncomfortable with the "N" word being discussed on their church grounds, though the event is scheduled for their center.
This has caused us to CHANGE the locale of the event, not the topic. It was suggested that we not have the first forum discussion and I said NO. We are going to have it. It is scheduled, and I think the discussion needs to be had.
Those who have registered for the forums have been contacted via telephone to tell them the change. I will be personally visiting the high schools again tomorrow to make sure everyone knows.
Please read the following carefullly as it give the new information for the event.
In celebration of the power of hiphop and spoken word, we are pleased to present the "Free2Flow" Summit.
