Dear Friends of Khalil,
Thank you all for your kind offers to help and participate in Khalil Shaheed's upcoming Memorial Celebration on Sunday, April 22 at 2pm. We are pleased to announce that this special event will take place at one of Khalil's favorite spaces: Oaktown Jazz Workshops at Nadine's in Jack London Square.
There will be refreshment's for sale in "Lina's Lounge" - the cafe portion of the club that will be managed by Khalil's daughter Lina. Also, we will be setting up a special room where we are collecting memories and mementos for Khalil's daughters, Lina & Savannah. We are encouraging everyone to bring photos and items you can part with. Be prepared to share your memories and stories of Khalil with the videographer that will roam the event.
