I met Raqiyah and her son in Brooklyn on Court Street – downtown BK- for an unscripted conversation. We discussed her current projects, being a Mom, advice for single women in NYC, she and her husband’s experience dealing with the Foster Care process to gain custody of their son; and advice for those considerng being an entrepreneur. Meet Raqiyah Mays: Writer, actress and radio personality, Raqiyah’s working on her first novel, performing Off-Broadway in the AUDELCO award-winning play “Platanos & Collard Greens” and the new show “Auction Block to Hip Hop.”CHECK THE BLOG: Raqiyahmays.wordpress.com
MY SMALL STORY
Over the past 15 years I have traveled, filmed and and acquired a library of over 6,000 hours. From the recording studio in NYC to South African Safari’s, I have filmed my conversations and watched my library grow. On April 26, 2010, I launched www.MySmallStroy.com in NYC as a way to share insight. My Small Story contextualizes life through a collection of unscripted filmed conversations with small businesses, entrepreneurs, artists and everyday people filmed, edited & shared weekly by LaRon Batchelor – a videographer/ethnographer with 15 years experience filming conversations in 4 continents.
