Sol Development is a hip-hop, jazz, and soul ensemble that uses music and media as mediums to transmit messages concerning the intersections of social justice, hope, and love, told from the perspectives of The Black Experience. Our work, The Sol of Black Folk, has made appearances nationally, however, its practice rests in the communities of Oakland,CA. It is the live soundtrack supporting the healing retreats of Mother’s who have lost children to gun violence, a collaborative work with BE-IMAGINATIVE. Our latest work has transcended into literature through the authorship of our release Sol Affirmations.
SOL Affirmations Toolkit and Audio Experience
A collection of affirmations and manifestations that were created with the sacred intention of helping us to remember our goodness.
BE-IMAGINATIVE is a collection of artists, therapists, healers, and activists dedicated to healing Black and Brown communities through artistic expression, development and multi-dimensional storytelling. This collective hosts healing retreats for mothers and families who have lost their loved one to gun violence. It is the aim of this collective to use holistic artwork and create, respect, and protect the sacred stories of Black and Brown people.
