In solidarity with #BlackLivesMatter and the Movement For Black Lives: Week Of Action, content on this website will be shut down for the week of June 2 - 9 while we educate ourselves on the contributions of Black communities to music and arts as well the social and political struggles that are currently being faced by Black people. I've been lucky to spend time in this music industry with Black colleagues as well I've spent time in South Africa recording and performing. The contributions of Black arts + culture in my life is undeniable and I too have much to learn about the needs of my Black friends and colleagues as well the industries in which I am active that thrive from Black culture. 

Please explore the hashtag #BLACKLIVESMATTER and educate yourself this week on the many issues that are being put forward by our friends and families in the Black communities across North America and the world.  Below is a list of resources I will add to over the week and going forward. This will become a page living on this site. If you have a link you would like to add, please send me a message via the Contact Page.

In solidarity and support,

Ostwelve aka Ronnie Dean Harris.
