Photos: Minnesota Literacy Council's BEYOND WORDS BASH

Three-time Grammy Award-winning singer and human rights activist Angélique Kidjo headlined Beyond Words, the Minnesota Literacy Council’s inaugural fundraising bash, on April 19 from 6-8:30 p.m. at the Solar Arts Building in Northeast Minneapolis. 

All proceeds from the event will support the literacy council and the nearly 75,000 children and adults in Minnesota it serves. The Minnesota Literacy Council is a nonprofit organization that teaches children and adult life-changing literacy skills, trains organizations and volunteers to be more effective in their own literacy work, and advocates to increase legislative support and community awareness of the people they serve.
