COVID-19 Pandemic

Shelter in Place until June 10: Governor Northam announcement today extends the "stay at home" mandate through the spring.

Wash your hands. Don't touch your face. Carry sanitizer. Stay home or away from group events. Check on family, friends or neighbors who live alone. Stock up on food and necessities, but not at the expense of your neighbors. (The only reason there is a TP shortage is because people have bought far more than they need now)

Check the CDC website for national updates on the pandemic. The Virginia Department of Health site includes the Richmond Department of Health updates.

Singing Oro Egun

Message from Sis Maat Free: "Singing oro egun is the very first thing you do when opening up a bembe/tambor (drum circle with the sacred bata drums). After you sing the whole set of songs for the ancestors - the song is like 7 minutes long - listen to the calls and sing the responses. ana this is a lovely time. we ought to enjoy every minute of it and celebrate!"
