The Root of it All
The Root of it All
The word ‘root’ is defined as “the basic cause, source, or origin of something.” Regardless of any act, emotion or response to a traumatic occurence in our lives, there is a root to it all. With the focus on mental health advocacy and awareness, Archie Green started Peel Dem Layers Back due to his own lived experience and the motivation to help others by sharing his story.

On May 23rd, Peel Dem Layers Back & ALOOF Recs will connect to celebrate #MentalHealthAwarenessMonth by presenting #TheRootOfItAll, a Mental Health Awareness Fundraising Concert at Mahall’s.

This unique and intimate performative experience will look to raise awareness of mental health by bringing together some of Cleveland’s most celebrated hip-hop artists to not only perform, but also share a personal testimony pertaining to each of their respective journeys with mental health.

Performers: Case Bargé, UnknownPhrazes, 2SSaint, Patrick Warner, Los Post, Seth Hasan & Archie Green

Special Presentations & Talks: Alexis Manalo & Archie L. Green and more TBA…

The funds raised at this event are to fund PDLB and a very special arts & performance project in partnership with The Lexington-Bell Community Center. Archie will be working with youth at LBCC in a project titled, “My Violin Weighs A Ton,” with a focus of creating the intersection of Hip-Hop & Classical Music through instrument instruction, creative writing workshops and various community activities. The project will end with a culminating performance at the iconic and world renowned Severance Hall in University Circle in September.

In order to make this project a success, Peel Dem Layers Back needs your help to raise funds to cover costs including production, venue rental, musician and composer compensation and more for #MyViolinWeighsATon. Funds raised will also go directly to PDLB in furthering mental health advocacy efforts with events such as #TheRootOfItAll and various other open forums fans and followers have become accustomed to.

This event is a fundraising event, with a suggested donation of $10 for entry. However, we are asking you to give what you can and/or what you feel is appropriate. For the first time ever, @peeldemlayersback will also be selling the PDLB #SurvivalToolKit for those coping with mental illness.
