So Fly: A Going Away Send-Off Fundraiser Jam for Dasan Ahanu

When: Sat., June 27, 9 p.m. 2015

Being elite is expensive. That’s why Durham poet, educator and activist Dasan Ahanu launched a $5,000 GoFundMe campaign to help cover the cost of his transition to Harvard University, where, as this year’s recipient of the Nasir Jones Fellowship, he’ll study rap lyricism at Harvard’s Hiphop Archive and Research Institute. His own lavish lyricism is expertly expressed on his latest spoken-word release, Last Temptation Before Sunrise: the prologue. Whether you’re paying to see him perform several of the project’s pieces live or buying it, your dollars will ensure that Ahanu’s nine-month residency isn’t too rocky. —Eric Tullis
