    Let's Talk Too! Author Yani

    in Books

    I'm your host

    Author Sharnel


    Author Yani,

    She wrote her first novel when she was fifteen years old while attending University City High-School. What started out as just a short story to help her cope with the accidental and devastating murder of a friend, turned into a full length, 893 handwritten paged novel after being encouraged to continue writing more by her peers. Years later, A Thug’s Redemption along with its two sequels, became Amazon Best Sellers and featured in Yo! Raps Magazine. Yani had previously been known for her writing through her edgy poetry, which granted her an invitation to the Tri-State’s number 1 Hip-Hop and R&B radio station, Power 99FM, to recite her popular poem “Why Tyrone Can’t Read” in 2001. Since then, Yani has attended open mic nights, reciting her poetry throughout Philadelphia. Yani has been featured on numerous blogs and has made guest appearances on various blog-talk radio shows. She was also a featured author at the 2013 National Black Book Festival in Houston, Texas. Yani still resides in Philadelphia with her three children and is working on her sixth novel.

    Melanie DewBerry: Dark, Dangerous and Beautiful, Engaging our Indigenous Nature

    in Spirituality

    Melanie Dewberry asks the question: What is your indigenous nature?

    She believes that we are all indigenous - to this planet; to each other. She also believes that we are each born with a divine mandate tattooed on our souls; a poem written before the world got its hands on us and labels us.

    We all want to be witnessed; seen for who we really are. This especially resonates with Producer and Host, Linda Lombardo, who calls herself the Camelot era/flower child of two Edwardian/Depression-era parents; better seen than heard; neither seen nor heard when adults got together to play cards or have dinner.

    Her Power of Naming TEDx Talk reminds us that resonance with our name is powerful and starts to tell a story; we do not negotiate our gifts; the world expects something of us when our true name is shared.

    Melanie DewBerry is many things in addition to a kick-ass speaker of TEDx talks; she is a Soul Navigator and brander, a magazine creator and writer, a coach who brings spirituality and her Native American roots to the conversation – even in the corporate world. 

    She is Conversation Curator & Courage Cultivator. Melanie is a Speaker & Coach on Consciousness, Soul and the Love of Life. She is a lover of languages. Melanie is “She who lives with her Soul on Fire”. 

    Melanie uses the power of spirituality, language, words, and naming to remind us all how we belong to one another.

    Linda Lombardo hosts.

    Wanda's Picks Radio Show

    in Art

    This is a black arts and culture site. We will be exploring the African Diaspora via the writing, performance, both musical and theatrical (film and stage), as well as the visual arts of Africans in the Diaspora and those influenced by these aesthetic forms of expression. I am interested in the political and social ramifications of art on society, specifically movements supported by these artists and their forebearers. It is my claim that the artists are the true revolutionaries, their work honest and filled with raw unedited passion. They are our true heroes. Ashay!

    Show # 63 | Interview of Marie Michaelle {31 Jan 2016}

    in Education

    About Marie Michaelle:


    I am in the business of Poetry. I model as well. I am an artist who believes in the power that art has over human emotion. I write and perform to inspire the voiceless. My delivery is designed to please my audiences verbally, visually and spiritually while exuding feminine power. Through years of observing, learning and teaching I have created and will continue to create works that will impact society in a meaningful and beneficial way. 

    WINDY CITY: POEMS OF LUST & DESIRE (a passionate or overmastering longing or craving) is my first published book.

    These 46 poems and 5 pictures will take you through an explicit journey of lust and desire. This book will introduce you to an uninhibited part of yourself from the very first page you read. By the time you've made it to the last poem you will have taken a well deserved journey of your carnal lifetime.

    I am interested in meeting people in the industry serious about networking. I am interested in meeting models, photographers, actors, producers, directors, singers, designers, promoters and fellow wordsmiths, anyone in the entertainment industry that could use my image or words to enhance their product or interested in some type of collaboration. I am serious about my work and extremely professional. I expect the same from anyone contacting me.

    "I want to wrap my words around you in a hug so powerful you melt into my poem."
