If you’ve never been interested in the Russel Simmons-championed "Get Your Money Right" financial empowerment tour, maybe this will get your attention. Free, the bootyful VJ that once hosted BET’s 106 & Park will be joining the “Get Your Money Right” tour of 2007 as a moderator. Free will help with panel discussion at each Hip-Hop Summit Action tour this year.
"I am extremely excited and honored to be a part of this year’s HSAN movement," said Free. "I applaud Russell Simmons, Dr. Benjamin Chavis and HSAN for historically and consistently focusing their energies on the pulse of our social issues. I know what some of you are thinking…’ What exactly is financial literacy? How and where do you get it?’ More important, ‘How do you keep it?’ Well, in our communities across the nation, the misunderstanding of what exactly Financial Empowerment can and should mean, continues. We shall set out to inform our audiences (YOU) at these Summits about becoming ‘financially literate’ and remaining ‘financially sound’. P.S. Real Talk y’all…I’m coming to learn, too, so let’s get empowered TOGETHER! See you there!"
Mark your calendars. The 2007 tour will make seven stops including Houston, Texas, March 3; Detroit, Mich., April 14; Toronto, Ontario, August; Greensboro, N.C., September 8; Washington, D.C., September 29; Miami, Fla., October 20 and Atlanta, Ga., November 3.
It looks like someone’s trying to stage a big comeback. Hey, we’re not complaining.
