BPATH Celebrating the Sweetness of Summer: Be Bright, Be Bold, Belong

Chattanooga’s Black professionals are invited to a carnival themed celebration of local Black artists and creatives for this August event.


This free bimonthly series is designed by and created for all area Black professionals. Tonight, we’ll be showcasing work by local Black artists James McKissic and Dannita Noble, live painting with Jody Harris, a performance by jazz saxophonist Joshua Allen, and a poetic celebration of Chattanooga’s Black creatives by poet Erika Roberts. 


We’ll have a cash bar, carnival inspired treats from Bonjour Sucre and Lil Mamas, and a mask making station so you can create your own dazzling carnival mask.


Pre-registration requested by Monday, August 8th at 4pm but walk-ins welcome.

For questions, please contact Adera Causey (


Parking that night is free to BPATH attendees – you can get your validation code at the check in desk when you arrive.
