See how it all began at SPLASH in 1992. For a $100.00 donation, you can own a copy of Jerry baring it all that very first night.

If you could have three wishes, what would they be?:
“1. I always wish for more courage, I’m getting there.

2. For my nieces to always be seen, heard, and appreciated. Living at this intersection isn’t always easy.

3. Lastly, to eradicate colonization, more specifically to prevent colonizers from ever stepping foot in Africa. The effects of foreigners robbing a continent of its people, its resources, its history are immeasurable (poverty, disease, war…). What would the world look like if black and brown were respected as the descendants that they are, descendants of royalty, wealth and genius?!? Imagine the pride melanated children would carry. Imagine the effect on the world!”
