When Hate Hits Home

ON STAGE AT JOE’S

Google “When Hate Hits Home” and you’ll find countless stories of everyday people all over the world experiencing racism, homophobia, sexism and other forms of bigotry. Most of us can easily recall our own stories of either being the victim or witness to such acts. Whether through a tweet or verbal insult hurled from a passing car, many of us have been given to the message to “go back” when we’re in a place we call home.

The underlying mission of On Stage at Joe’s is to give audiences a deepened understanding of the history of our artists, the role they play in anchoring culture for our community, and the power of live performance experiences.

Not everything that is faced can be changed. But nothing can be changed until it is faced.
