In celebration of Rennie Harris Puremovements 30th anniversary in 2022 Rennie Harris is remounting one of his classic works Rome & Jewels.
Become a backer and supporter of the remounting of Rome & Jewels
Community, family & friends, as you may already know, we reached our goal to raise $30,000 to remount Rome and Jewels. We would not have made it had it not been for your support, love, patience and generosity. My team and I wrestled and debated about whether we should launch this campaign in the middle of a pandemic and a major election that would not only shape our future course as a nation but as a people/beings on this planet.
In the end I was reminded of something I often tell those who are listening. “Movement is the last manifestation of your reality-it is not what you say but what you do that confirms who you are.” Hip-hop has always operated under an unspoken belief that “action changes reality.” If there is no action taken how can we expect to change our current situation?
With that said, I would like to personally thank my team Rodney Hill, Mecca Madyun, Vivian Kim, Teresa Eyring, Janice Marks, and a super duper thank you to Tina Hueges. Without her support this would not have happened. I especially want to thank all of those who supported us in spirit, good wishes and love-and each and every backer who gave there last and then some. Thank you for supporting me, the company and the vision and mission of Rennie Harris Puremovement. Your names will not only be listed on this page for the life of the project, but it will be listed in our program nationally and internationally. Thank you, again, for all you’ve done.
