Philadelphia, PA, February 14, 2009 --( Philadelphia artist collective, Positive Minds, presents Black Revival: Resurrecting the Spirit of Our Ancestors: a non-traditional Black History Month presentation in honor of the strength and power of African Americans and Black People of African decent on Friday, February 27th from 7-9pm at Gallery 209 in Old City (209 N. 3rd St).

Positive Minds expanded out of a student organization at the University of the Arts with the mission to serve as a multimedia resource for under-served communities. The collective of local artists have committed to using their talents as a vehicle for social change and community development. Although the shows’ admission is “pay-as-you-can”, to continue with the mission, Black Revival guest are being asked to donate a new or gently used “black history” book to help create a Samuel Huey Elementary School African American Studies Resource Center.

The Positive Minds artist collective demonstrates African/African American history using out-of-the-box style dancing, singing, spoken word, poetry, and visual communications. The show features members: IBtheMC, Jenielle Anasia, Lillian Bailey, Ada Chi, Jean Jaque, and Jazmane.

“The Black Revival promises to articulate a powerful, yet “family-friendly” aspect of African/African American history. This show is designed to honor and resurrect the spirit of the ancestors in a creative and interactive way,” said production manager Jenielle Anasia.

“I believe that this is a great example of civic engagement. Our students need all the resources that they can get, and who better to give it to them than their own community members. I appreciate these artists for their efforts on our behalf,” said Samuel Huey Elementary School Kindergarten teacher Ms. Parris.
