Keisha Sutton-James on WBLS, Circle of Sisters & Community

 

Launched in 1996, Circle of Sisters is the 15th largest annual event in NYC and #1 for people of color. I filmed the story of 2 vendors and Keisha Sutton-James shares the story of WBLS, Circle of Sisters and what WBLS stands for. “Being in this business I realize it is apart of our family creed, part of what we have grown up to do to learn to do..is to be impactful to our community.” Keisha Sutton-James, VP-WBLS.

Kobie Brown “From Fatherless To Fatherhood” (2012 Film)

 I along with millions of Americans have grown up “Fatherless”. And today 40% of American children live in a fatherless home raised by single mothers, aunts, grandmothers and other female caregivers. Kobie Brown’s 2012 film From Fatherless To Fatherhood explores the causes, effects and possible solutions to turning the corner on father absence. We met at Central Park for an unscripted, insightful conversation about the inspiration for the film, his family story and his goals. I love and support what Kobie is doing, solutions through dialogue.

“Before You leave this planet, it is important that you get in touch with what your purpose is and not be defined by what your job or career may be..but find out what it is you are suppose to do for the betterment of mankind and everything else will fall into place.” – Kobie during our Central Park conversation

A Sunday morning trolley-bus art tour through East harlem. ArtCrawl Harlem™ is a guided trolley tour of local galleries. Participants visit 5-7 Harlem art galleries and receive a 20-30 minute “tour within a tour” at each site. Here are 3 spaces I visited: Media Noche addresses the oil spill, HipHop hall of Fame @Studio 176 & James De La Vega’s mural of renowned Nuyorican poet and playwright Pedro Pietri is a community mainstay on the side of the East Harlem Café at Lexington Avenue & 104th Street.

“Rent Is Too Damn High” NYC Responses

The Rent is Too Damn High!” This is the catchphrase of New York gubernatorial candidate Jimmy McMillan, which he put on display in a recent debate. It also happens to be the name of the political party that he is running to represent. No, I’m not joking. This is for real. He’s a cross between Isaac Hayes and Hulk Hogan. And NYC is enamored by him. He has over 4 million youtube views
