    Inspired by the name of Dr. Claud Anderson's book, PowerNomics is a plan intended to produce economic enfranchisement for the African-American community in America. Ms. Hill and Nas engage in their own form of PowerNomics along with the audiences to contribute support for education, health, agriculture, technology, and community based businesses throughout the Diaspora. Your investment IN ACTION will be put to use through donations made from ticket sales to support initiatives worldwide, including The Harvest InstituteYes We CodeEqual Justice InitiativeSoronko AcademyAl Noor Charitable AgencyHabeshaInternational Peace Initiative, and many more. Full list of charities being donated to below.


    Ms. Lauryn Hill's longstanding narrative of amplifying and elucidating the marginalized, and the unheard, as well as bringing culture together creatively and economically, continues with the upcoming PowerNomics tour. Of the tour, Ms. Hill says: "My interests have always centered around encouraging empowerment, and focusing on ways to help heal, repair, educate and promote enfranchisement to the disenfranchised. I'm excited to share this platform for community, creativity, and progress, helping to expose, educate, and magnify the beauty of cultural amalgamation."

    Says Nas of the tour: "PowerNomics Tour is our way of being a part of the solution. We are here to lend a hand where it is needed and hopefully to inspire. I'm a part of a mission to help build a more diverse tech industry and to encourage my people to see beyond what they believe is in their reach. Music is spiritual, and we are a musical people, so what better way to contribute to our situation than to bring some spirituality. It is an honor to be on this tour with MLH, and what better time than now, in the midst of the devastation of Hurricane Harvey as well as the dire situation of many African-American communities."

    Ms. Hill, an appreciator and patron of visual Art, has also curated beautiful photographic images from around the world to be incorporated in an Art wall exhibit, that will travel with the tour to certain cities.
