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!

For this episode of Conversations in the Zone, I have the privilege to chat with Susan Moreno, a contemporary abstract artist based in Atlanta, GA. Susan attended The Art Institute of Chicago and The Atlanta College of Art where she graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Art in 1987. Susan is an award-winning artist whose work has appeared in numerous juried shows including the Decatur Fine Arts Exhibition at The Dalton Gallery at Agnes Scott College. Her collectors include, The Bank of Atlanta, Decatur Arts Alliance, as well as, private collectors in Atlanta and Arizona. Susan grew up in Florida and was around water for much of her formative years. These early memories of water and movement are the foundation for her present work, as she pours paint on canvas and wood. The idea of unrestricted movement and liquidity are her primary concerns. She uses sand and charcoal to add texture and associations of earthiness to her images.
With over 25 years of experience Susan has entertained professionally in the Atlanta area, as well as out of state with caricatures. Over the years Susan has drawn countless caricatures for corporate events such as conventions, trade-shows, employee and customer appreciation, wedding receptions and much more.
Her client list includes Atlanta Magazine, PYA Monarch, Greystone Power, Georgia Power, AT & T, Delta, Coke, Georgia Power, just to name a few. For more information about Susan and the work she loves, visit www.susanmoreno.com, caricaturesbysusan.com or digitalcaricaturesatlanta.com.

Former New York Times columnist turned True-Crime novelist Fred Rosen will be joining me on Monday, November 24th to discuss his book, Lobster Boy.
Mr. Rosen is the recipient of the Library Journal’s Best Reference Source 2005 award for The Historical Atlas of American Crime. Two of his books, There But For the Grace: Survivors of the 20th Century’s Infamous Serial Killers and When Satan Wore a Cross, are best-sellers at the Doubleday Book Club, Literary Guild, Mystery Guild, and Book-of-the-Month Club.

Long Island City, NY – Christopher Santora had only been a firefighter with Engine 54, Ladder 4 for two months when he died tragically on September 11th.
“It devastated us, but my husband and I both understood we couldn’t change what happened,” recalls his mother Maureen Santora. “We wanted to do something that would benefit the future generations and help them remember 9/11.”
In his memory, Maureen and Al Santora established the Christopher Santora Educational Scholarship Fund, which awards $50,000 in scholarships each year to New York City’s elementary, middle school and high school students. Scholarships awarded based on an essay competition. The essays are evaluated based on the student’s response to the topic, grammar and spelling, originality and their ability to relate the topic to their personal experience.
“It’s always a topic that’s related to current events because Christopher loved history,” says Maureen. “It’s something we hope the kids give some thought to. We’re looking for essays that reveal the integrity of the student’s character.”
Beyond the Locker Room with Tim Worley is a commentary-based radio show focused on the stories behind the stories of current events in sports. Tim Worley is a celebrated University of Georgia All-American running back, and was drafted by the Pittsburgh Steelers as the seventh pick in the first round of the 1989 NFL Draft. He played six seasons in the NFL with the Steelers and the Chicago Bears. He is now co-founder and CEO of Worley Global Enterprises - a communications consulting firm. Tim is now an in-demand Motivational Speaker and Life Skills Consultant. Each week he will examine hot topics in sports from a life skills and character development perspective.
Through his company, Worley Global Enterprises, Tim travels the country as a Motivational Speaker and Life Skills Consultant to professional athletes, amateur athletes, corporate executives and organizational leadership, men’s groups, recovery centers and young adult groups and camps. Tim’s first-hand experiences “in the penthouse and the outhouse” as a publicly risen and fallen SEC All-American and NFL first-round draft pick position him as an expert on the “why’s” behind the negative headlines permeating sports news.
Tim’s life skills consulting work with NCAA and NFL athletes, as well as his unique perspective after suffering the well-documented premature end of his NFL career due to lack of character and poor choices, are the fodder for his show’s lively content. Tim has a gregarious personality, and an uncompromisingly passionate stance on the importance of developing amateur and professional athletes’ character alongside the development of their talent.

This show is about us discussing hot topics and how they relate to the law.
Tonight we turn to the world of horror for entertainment. Executives at Universal Studios Hollywood have promised to revise the company's complaint procedure, after a cast member at Universal Studios Hollywood Halloween Horror Nights allegedly called two 13-year-old girls “sluts,” “whores” and “hookers”. The theme of the attraction was based on the popular movie “The Purge”. Is this how this should have been handled? Tune in to hear the hosts discuss this issue.
