Roastivist Austin

  • Springdale Station 979 Springdale, Ste 160 Austim, TX 78702 (map)


Sistas Of and Black Sovereign Nation invite you to attend our first annual Roastivist event, a fundraiser to benefit local social justice, community focused and activist led organizations. Roastivist is a comedy show facilitated in an attempt to honor the organizers who give their lives to social justice, community service, and combatting oppressive systems as well as to foster friendship, familiarity, and a spirit of unity among members of our community.

Fatima Mann of CounterBalance ATX, Margaret Haule of Black Lives Matter Austin, Njera Keith of Black Sovereign Nation, Victoria Watson of Sistas Of, and Meme Styles of Measue Austin will be in attendance! Come out to see your favorite activist led organizations and their representatives subjected to a good, old fashioned roast performed by local comedians like Yusef Roach, Jasmine Ellis, Justin Hicks, Eric Nimmer, Devon Walker, Carlton Wilcoxson and Nathalie Holmes. Attendees will also enjoy dinner and drinks.

Kenneth D. Thompson of The Wake Up Call will be on the mic, bringing his charm and energy to an already amazing environment. DJ HellaYella will also be in the building, spinning. We appreciate your contribution to the movement for Black liberation! Suggested donations of a minimum of $25 will benefit participating organizations.
