IN THE ERA OF MULTIPLE CRIMINAL ACTIONS FROM A PRESIDENT FREE LARRY HOOVER

This Thursday Dec 9th, KAYNE and DRAKE have collaborated for a one night performance to help bring awareness to the cruel and over burdensome extreme punishment of six life sentences set down on Larry Hoover. Only 23 at the time of his arrest, Larry Hoover is now 71, has spent 48 years in prison, for the murder of a neighborhood drug dealer and conspiracy charges. A six life sentence is the equivalent of 150 to 200 years in prison.  Both DRAKE and KANYE have put their competitive nature aside in hopes to help not only Free Hoover but his son as well hopes his father can somehow bring the youth together in Chicago to finally stop the unjustified killings and...

Confederate Solider is Representing Justice for Who, in Front of the Loudoun County Courthouse?

Long after the Civil War ended, statues were erected memorializing the Confederacy. For example, here at the Loudoun County Courthouse a Confederate Solider stands guard, of what exactly? What heritage does he represent that would somehow reflect America's culture and aspirations of today's society? Erected in 1908, forty three years after the Civil War and one hundred and twelve years later, he still stands there as a reminder.  As a reminder of what exactly, Treason, Rebellion, White Supremacy, the desire to continue to oppress people of color?  A campaign was pushed by Chair Supervisor Randall about five years ago and to her dismay was not fulfilled. The talk even reached the local news and yet nothing happened. I am sure...

STRONG BLACK WOMEN MYTH OR FACTS

On April 25th, 2019, the Maryland-National Capital Parks & Planning Commission's Natural & Historical Resource Division, as part of their “Legends and Legacy” series, hosted the “Black Women in Politics: Shattering the Glass Ceiling" discussion at the Oxon Hill Manor in suburban Maryland.I was fortunate enough to receive an invite, where I listened to some of the D.C. region’s most prominent female leaders speak first-hand on their struggles working in a male-dominated arena and of too many unnecessary hurdles imposed upon them for simply being women. So rather then going over each of their policy accomplishments, I thought it extremely important to highlight the underlining theme of how they overcame these struggles and the outcome to not only represent themselves, but us all. First...

THE RISE of LA SIRENA Roxi Santi

Puerto Rico on Sept 17th 2017, suffered the worst natural disaster covering the entire island in possibility its history. As a result, the total infrastructure basically collapsed. To put this in perspective, no power for months, no water for weeks and no phones stretching across 2.2 million acres of land impacting approximately 3.6 million people. Phones wouldn't normally make this list. But on an island communicating within the island for necessary logistics and/or off the island is both critical and essential. That first week families waited desperately to hear if their loved ones were still alive. While everything was unclear to the outside world, things became crystal clear for those on the island. We are all we have. Even today...
