the Tea Pad story

image20

 


The "tea pad" is part of a very rich history of cannabis (marijuana) in the African-American community in New York City and the jazz scene of the 1920's and 30's . It was a dynamic time in American history. 

Women of all color got the right to vote in 1920.

And, during this time the United States government launched an aggressive campaign of 

marijuana prohibition, which had catastrophic impact on black and brown communities for decades to come. Tea pads were convivial speakeasy style  spaces where people of all racial and ethnic backgrounds could 

come together free from the violence of prohibition.


In 2020, Tea Pad will be hosting events around the country. We'll be in Baltimore, DC, Philadelphia & Denver. 

If you'd like to have a Tea Pad in your city, let us know!


Live jazz , plentiful libations, good eats & a convivial atmosphere are always enjoyed by all!


"It isn't where you came from; it's where you're going that counts."  

 - Ella Fitzgerald
