Description: Eco-Lifestyles, L3C is happy to launch the 1st Bi-Annual Bush Man Competition 2011 on Earth Day. A 6 pm press conference followed by a 7 pm film showing of 'The Gods Must Be Crazy' (a South African film classic) will take place at the Mckenna Museum of African American Art. The public is invited. Movie cost $5.00.
As an indigenously-owned, environmentally & socially responsible New Orleans based business, Eco-Lifestyles, L3C feels that it is imperative they honor & promote the positive attributes of natural Eco-friendly men, an endangered species. They have chosen to do this in the form of a multi dimensional Eco-competition that is intended for, but not limited to Black males whose natural ethnic identity is too often negatively stereotyped and ostracized.
Young men, 21-35 years of age are encouraged to come out and enter the competition as a contestant. A $50.00 application fee is required. Following the launch, there will be a series of qualifying Eco-social, cultural, and sports related events leading up to the final pageantry event on October 16, 2011 (save the date).
