Saturday, February 25, 2012 Living Room Lounge 1100 W. Cermak Chicago DJ & Food: 6pm, Show: 7pm Sharp! This month’s Community Café by IMAN is all about fresh, healthy food being accessible to all people as a basic human right. Join us for a dose of healthy eats and conscious beats! Along the lines of our work on food justice through Muslim Run: Campaign for Health, Wellness, and Healing, we are dedicating this Community Café to a basic human right – access to fresh, healthy food for all people regardless of where in our city or world they live. This issue is real on a daily basis for many people – whether it’s dealing with the food deserts on Chicago’s South and West Sides or famine in Somalia. Community Café hopes to address some of the issues people are dealing with as well as highlight IMAN’s own local work on food justice. We’re of course championing this cause with a dynamic line up of artists. Maimouna “Mumu Fresh” Youssef is a Grammy nominated seasoned singer, songwriter, producer and emcee. Native Sun is a London based duo that fuses Hip Hop and African rhythms. Zain Lodhia is a Chicago-based singer/songwriter new to the indie pop/rock scene. IMAN Organizing and Arts & Culture will also conduct a workshop the next day on how the availability of healthy food is vital to the health of communites and individuals. Special Guests Include Rhymefest Mikkey Halsted and Kuumba Lynx
