On today's show, John and Karla begin interviewing the 2015 class of Urban Heroes and they will start with Oliver. Oliver worked at Mellon Bank for many years, but also served the community as the chair of the United Way and the chairman of the August Wilson Center for African American Culture in downtown Pittsburgh.

STRAIGHT GLASS!!!! (5STARS)
This is one of those books its hard to give a review on because you dont want to give out spoilers but you cant just say it was good because thats an understatement.
Everything about this book is straight glass...from the cover to the characters to the knowledge being dropped to the humor to the very end.
I waited on pins and needles for this book to drop and now I can't wait to discuss it because it was truly awesome.
If you thinking about reading it, make sure you start from the very beginning. It's the only way to truly understand the dope girl and her family of misfits.
My name is K Sherrie
And I recommend this read

Hellooooo, my name is London Ellis and I am singer/songwriter from London chasing my dreams with my big stubborn personality toget my music heard and to make other people happy with it. I have always wanted to be a singer. You know when you are asked in school what you wanna be when you grow up? Well mine wasn’t the astronaut, (even though the thought of jumping around on the moon does sound fun), not the Princess, (even though having a prince whisk me off my feet wouldn’t be such a terrible thing, damn maybe I should re-think this…) but anyway I said “I’m gonna be a Popstar” and I have never changed my mind since.
Deja was practically born to be a performer. The daughter of Norman Howell, a well-established stunt man/coordinator/director and stunt double for Kevin Costner, Deja traveled from location to location growing up, so it’s no wonder that she thinks of a movie set as “home.” As a little girl, Deja fell in love with the idea of performing. It would be the film “Dances with Wolves” where Deja would get her first taste of performing.

Welcome to a Brand New Year of the Urban Woman Radio on BlogTalkRadio. We have alot of things to discuss. Did you see the movie Selma ? I had the pleasure of attending a Press Screening as well as Q&A Session with the Producers and Stars of the Movie. Selma is a powerful movie that is very timely to what is happening now in both Ferguson and NYC.
Selma won a Golden Globe for Best Original Song "Glory". Common gave a powerful speech about how Selma changed his views. I think Selma should have won more awards. David Oyelowo was nominated for a Golden Globe but did not win. I think that is a real injustice. But I am not surprised. David also did very well in The Butler. He has a very unique personality. David is not a Jamie Foxx or a Denzel Washington. I am so happy that Oprah recognizes his talent and genuine spirit. He is unlike anything we have ever seen.
I think Ava Devurnay should have won for Best Director. She is the first African American Woman to be nominated for such an honor. Parts of the movie reminded me of Malcolm X. Ava made us explore parts of the character of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr that we had not looked into before. He was much more than "I Have A Dream.." Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was not without flaws. The movie implied that he was not faithful to Coretta or "Corey" as he lovingly referrred to her. I never stopped to think about his jealousy of Malcolm X. Ava did an outstanding job.
No show would be complete without mentioning Dance Moms. We are in Season 5. Three of the original dancers are gone. Nia will most likely become the newest scapegoat. In order to keep the show relevant and full of controversy, Abby Lee Miller is allowing Maddie to participate in Music Videos that will lead to many discussions. First it was Chandelier and now its Elastic which co stars Shia Lebouf.
Alyssa Galarza is an up and coming singer/songwriter who performs in the r&b/pop music genre. She is an Atlanta artist and is working on music for an upcoming EP. She is signed to Cash King Records as their first American artist for a music video release and distribution deal. However, she does independently work her own music through her self-created label, “Scorch Records.” Alyssa is a hard working, focused talent that looks to inspire and create relatable music. As a singer, she has great versatility, which will be clearly evident on her upcoming EP called “Chameleon.”
