MS. LAURYN HILL, IN ASSOCIATION WITH LIVE NATION AND TIDAL, HAS ANNOUNCED THE MLH CARAVAN: A DIASPORA CALLING! CONCERT SERIES.

“The MLH Caravan allows me to continue the theme of unity and celebration of the many facets of cultural and artistic beauty throughout the African diaspora while on tour this summer and fall. In these days of tension, tumult and transition, an exchange of this kind can yield direction, expression, understanding and empowerment as well as connection, self Love and appreciation that hopefully overflows into our respective communities.” -MLH
