Catch him at your next event, Lil Black is everywhere bringing his infectious energy with him. Host and MC, Lil Black is who you need to start the party. "I love what I do; I love making people happy." Born and bred in Baltimore, Black calls himself "a real Baltimorean" and sees the potential for our city. "We are a startup town; you can be successful here. But for people who have big dreams, there is a cap if you want something outside of that you have to get it. But you can come back and raise or break that cap and take Baltimore to the next level". Black has a long history with AFRAM and has experienced a lot of the festival's iterations. "There are certain things that are unique and special for Baltimore. AFRAM has always been that place. Remembering the festival years ago brings me back to that happy place, and it is still that happy place. How can you not have AFRAM?" You can catch Lil Black at this year's AFRAM festival, keeping the energy high. "When I am out there on stage--whether it is me running into the crowd or jumping all over the stage--because anytime I'm involved I want to make sure it is a good feeling, I know pain and struggle so why not have some good days to balance out the bad days."
