Charlotte “Mama C” O’Neal
Poet, Visual Artist, Musician, Peace Builder and Lifelong Teacher

Join Us for insightful and up-front conversations with long-time community activists/advocates as they share their perspectives on life, living and “changing the game” so everyone can “play to win.”

A Kansas City native, “Mama C” is an internationally respected and recognized visual, music and spoken word artist who has been performing professionally for more than thirty years. Her song writing and performing talents have been showcased on stage, television, and radio in many cities in Africa and America. A veteran Black Panther party member (Kansas City Chapter), she and her husband Pete O’Neal are founders of the United African Alliance Community Center at their home in the Imbaseni Village in the foothills of Arusha, Tanzania.

Don’t miss this opportunity to see and hear firsthand from a gifted artist and “true revolutionary” who fervently believes in the power of music and art to heal, bring joy, and elevate lives!
