Laolu x Everyday People NYC

Fear and Fancy and Everyday People NYC teamed up Saturday July 9th to put on a legendary beachside party featuring a performance by Jidenna, where a portion of the event's proceeds were donated to Black Lives Matter NYC! Laolu created a living tribute to the recent victims of police brutality, and to the movement that strives to validate and liberate the lives of black people in America, Black Lives Matter.
