We have partnered with the Center for Science and Public Interest to create a visual poem that expresses the detriment people of color have faced over the last 400 years. From slaves working in the sugar cane field to becoming slaves of the sugar in our diet. We aren’t in the fields anymore but the harm and the oppression is still there. Sign up and be the first to see 400 Years when it debuts .
Wassup Té is a health and wellness Limited Liability Company proactively working with businesses and nonprofit organizations to shine a light on issues that affect underserved communities.
Through art, music, film and literature, we will bring forth the complex causes and detriments of living unhealthy. At the same time elaborate on the benefits of converting to a healthier lifestyle. These methods have been proven to make digesting educational content more palatable and leave a long lasting impact on the individual.
How do we change the disproportionate health problems in minority communities? Better access to healthcare, unbiased doctors, routine check ups, preventative health measures, and access to fresh fruits and vegetables are all imperative to our growth as a nation.
Now we're implementing a creative approach to address a few of these issues with awareness, education and action planning. Join us on a healthy lifestyle upgrade. Let's work together to incorporate the arts into a balanced lifestyle with exercise, healthy eating habits and mental health awareness.
This platform will host shows, interviews, artwork, inspirational poetry, music, new books, and more! Get ready to learn how to think outside of YOUR box with WassupTe.com.
