Thanking all who came out to the Esquire Theatre for the premier of “The Spirit of Tafari.” It was a very inspiring night in so many ways. Very grateful to the Most High for allowing us to see this project through and shine light on this positive young mans story. I’m also very thankful to have had the opportunity to work with partner Donald Hancock on producing this film. 

Like Tafari said after the screening, “I hope we’ve inspired you.”

The Spirit of Tafari, directed by Abdullah Powell and produced by Donald Hancock, premiers Lord willing tonight at the Esquire. Registration for 7:30 PM is full!  Come to the door at 8:30 PM for free 2nd screening.

Family & friends, I’ve got some exciting news. After 9 months of production my team and I at Elementz are pleased to announce that our documentary ‘The Spirit of Tafari’ is set to premier on May 7th at the Esquire Theatre.  Our baby is ready for delivery! Tafari will also be releasing his first EP music album on the same evening! 

'The Spirit of Tafari' tells the story of an inspiring young man who wandered into our doors at Elementz three years ago, a decision that he says changed the direction of his life. Putting “hard times” and “bad decisions” behind him, Tafari has used his music, and the supportive people around him to find his own identity and develop into a exceptional hip hop artist.  

The release is co-sponsored by Temple Sholom Cincinnati and UC’s eMedia division.  We welcome you to join us on May 7th by registering for your free ticket on Elementz website - https://elementz.cincyregister.com/spirit.
