Survivor, Activist, and Spoken Word Artist:
She is a Greenville, SC native who has grown to be an outstanding budding artist in the poetry community.
A member of the Upstate SC Poetry Slam Team- Say What?! Bitter Sweet has ranked top 3 in several slam competitions and throughout the upstate of South Carolina, North Carolina and Georgia.
The 2013 and 2014 'Say What?!' Slam Team Grand Slam Champion, the 2013 Soul Sister Slam Winner, winner of Queen Sheba’s Rough Language Slam in 2013 and 2014 Say What?! Venue's 12th Annversary Slam winner
She also works with Wits End Poetry, a non-profit organization built around serving the youth and senior citizens along with hosting writing and performing workshops. She's performed for elementary and middle school students.
Bittersweet's poetry is filled with raw emotion and personal triumph that will inspire, no matter your walk in life. Her most influential and favorite poets are Dr. Maya Angelou, Langston Hughes and Edgar Allen Poe.
She is quoted as saying "I only write about what i've been through. My poetry is raw and uncut just like me. I spit from the depths of my soul, there's truth in my saliva. The taste is BitterSweet."
Ephesians 4:31 says, for good reason, “Let all BITTERNESS, be put away from you, with all malice!” Some of us have excuses for getting to be bitter, staying bitter, or refusing to leave bitterness alone! Heroin this ‘cast, Dr. Williams gives you the BIBLICAL remedy for this destructive emotion!
Host Cyrus Webb welcomes filmmaker Robert Lemelson to Conversations LIVE to discuss what stirs him as a storyteller and what he hopes audiences are able to take away from BITTER HONEY.
Behold, thy Lord said to the angels: "I will create a vicegerent on earth." They said: "Wilt Thou place therein one who will make mischief therein and shed blood?- whilst we do celebrate Thy praises and glorify Thy holy (name)?" He said: "I know what ye know not."
Violence. We see it on the web, the local and national news.
It seems that either literally or figuratively, we all are getting a taste of the “apple pie” that H-Rap Brown (aka Imam Jamil Al-Amin), spoke of years ago. Make no mistake; within the context of that particular observation, this is far from a sweet dessert, but a bitter acrid cider of devastation and despair.
The well-publicized acts of violence capture the dreaded imagination and hysterical fear of the populace, and the intellectualization of politicians, sociologists and a host of “intellectuals”.
Of particular concern today, is what appears to be a rise in violent behavior by black people, both men and women.
What has happened over time?
Are black people becoming more violent than ever, or are we (including this writer), unwitting victims of a press propaganda machine that disproportionately focuses on violent crimes committed by black people, thus giving others’ a “pass”?
Do the YouTube and Worldstarhiphop videos speak to a complete social, moral, cultural and spiritual breakdown of our community?
What about black women? Are the caricatures in the Madea movies or in in Martin Lawrence sitcoms just comedy, or what many presume are accurate depictions of a “strong” black woman?
What are the factors in our violent behavior? Poverty? Lack of fathers? Diet? Music? “Leaders” who only seem to be concerned when the violent offenders are white?
We want to review these points and more, this Saturday, November 15th, on Critical Discourse
Bitter Honey is a feature-length documentary presenting an intimate and emotionally charged portrait of three polygamous families in Bali, Indonesia. Following these families over a seven year period, the film portrays the plight of Balinese co-wives, for whom marriage is frequently characterized by psychological manipulation, infidelity, domestic violence, and economic hardship.

The New York Giants are 3-3, but could easily be 0-7. That's of course if you took math lessons with Jason Piere Paul.
The G-Men did the talking before the game, they stomped on the Eagles' logo at midfield, but Philadelphia's actions did all the speaking.
The result ... the Birds recorded their first shutout since Dec. 1 1996 with a dominant 27-0 victory.
LeSean McCoy got back on track with 149 yards rushing, while the offensive line played their best game of the season.

For the first time in team history, the Philadelphia Eagles (4-1) will wear all black in their NFC East clash with the New York Giants (3-2).
The Eagles' offense has sputtered the last few weeks while New York seems to be in full stride following an 0-2 start to the campaign under new offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo. Philadelphia, though, has found other ways to score, posting seven non-offensive touchdowns through its first five games. The 1998 Seattle Seahawks hold the all-time mark with 13 non-offensive scores.

Author Dyphia Blount,
She is a native of Smithfield, VA who currently resides in Hampton, VA. She’s worked in the Accounts Receivable Corporate World for almost 20 years when her life took a turn for the worst and she needed some sort of therapy. Writing became her therapy! She began writing erotic poetry and was encouraged to write this book which was started in August 2011. Dicmatized is a Trilogy of Sexcapades Volume I. It held the #5 spot on Amazon’s Best Rated/Top Erotica list for over two months. Dyphia has gained an amazing fan base and following since the release and has been told that she saved a lot of relationships/marriages. Since then, she has written three other works: Dicmatized 2: Bitter Sweet Revenge (part 2 of Dicmatized Trilogy), Suck Me Dry, and has just released Volume 1 of 50 Shades of Dicmatized: Diaries of a Sex Therapist. All of these books were inspired by life lessons of love, relationship, heart ache, romance, and her all-time favorite "KARMA". With her blackberry in her hand and not a clue of what she was doing Dyphia set down in a quiet place and started typing away!

The United States in terms of hisory fought for its freedom, justice, and equality with the American Revolutionary War, and the American Declaration of Independence which birthed a new nation in that ushered in a new world order. The New World Order gave way to a New Empire in the West, and the United States is that Empire. With a 155 million person labor market, the world's largest purchasing market with $17 Trillion in good and service value, and $84 Trillion in Household Assets, the United States is one of the wealthiest nations in the world on paper. What we do know paper rises and falls in value through the banks and stock market? The New Empire in the west grew out of exclusions and issues of ethnic superiority. The United States excluded Native Americans and imported labor from foreign markets in Africa to build the economy that we see today. America failed to compensate the enslaved people of its country because of a bitter Civil War that broke the Union and bond of this country As a result, the people of the country suffer formed serious issues of entitlement that have flooded over into social and political issues that will have a lasting effect on the economic prosperity and posterity of this country. Are we witnessing a the fall of an empire or the rise of a new one? Join Us
The bye week blues are over and it's back to football for the Philadelphia Eagles (5-1) as they head into the desert to clash with the Arizona Cardinals.
Despite being without several of their key players, Arizona still ranks No. 1 against the run and haven't allowed a 100-yard rusher in over a year. It should be a nice stiff test for LeSean McCoy and the revamped Eagles' offensive line.
The Birds have to win to keep pace with the Dallas Cowboys atop the NFC East.
