As a 2nd year #OneSpark attendee, one of the first things I noticed was the “diversity of people” from hipsters, hip hop, afrobohemians, church ladies, professionals and more. Some of my favorite moments include Parriscope Live Jazz Jam Sessions (Downtown Cigar Lounge), Snap Foods (veggie ice cream), The LaVilla Art and Music Project (LAMP) (poetry and music at Chamblins bookmine), meeting the ladies with Brown Girls Unite and community enriching tech and education projects!! If you search through instagram photos #OneSpark, you can get a glimpse of the diversity.
