Al Kalashnikov, Paul Hill, and activist leader, Jacarri Kelley, from Northern Utah Black Lives Matter as our Chief Executive Director appeared on Good Things Utah to promote their launch of The Pyramid Company, a black-owned nonprofit benefiting the black experience in Utah, with a Juneteenth Gala in Salt Lake City, Saturday, June 19, 2021, a significantly historic day to African Americans as the day celebrated as the end of slavery in the U.S. 

TPC AKA The Black Pyramid has formed out of the need for black people to unite around a successful medium since the days of Utah’s African-American past newspapers like the Broad Ax and the Plain Dealer according to this URL: Therefore, they’ve incorporated one year after the death of George Floyd taking on our local significant activist leader, Jacarri Kelley, from Northern Utah Black Lives Matter as our Chief Executive Director.

It has become one of the most buzzed-about events of the summer. This year’s lineup includes a variety of entertainers from all different backgrounds including Rapsody out of NYC. Their Launch and Cultural Event was initiated as a way to educate and enlighten the public about Juneteenth in a way that isn’t pretentious or stuffy in a secularized atmosphere. “It’s a great place for us to learn about our culture,” heritage and traditions, through art, music, and dance as a fundraiser,” said Jacarri Kelley, event coordinator. “Our mission is our platform for networking the black experience.
