    LADIES OF SKYY - EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW - TUES, OCT 13, 2015 - 7PM PST

    in Music

    The Ladies of SKYY, Denise, Dolores and Bonné Dunning, are best known as the female vocalists of the hit group known as SKYY.   The Brooklyn-born Sisters formed the band SKYY along with band members Solomon Roberts, “Boochie” Sierra, and Gerald LeBon in 1976.   Their distinct signature vocal harmonies helped make SKYY’s sound unlike any other in this classic funk/R&B musical genre.  The LADIES OF SKYY are sustaining the SKYY legacy and continue to perform all of their classic club, dance, funk and hip hop music hits nationally and internationally.


    The Dunning Sisters’ interests in singing flourished while growing up in their native Bedford Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, New York neighborhood.  Influenced by the male soul groups of the 60’s and 70's because of their tight harmonies and smooth routines, The Sisters had dreams of becoming professional singers. They made their first stage appearance at their high school talent show in 1968 under the name “The Sounds of Soul.”  In 1972 they met Randy Muller, while singing at the Miss Black America New York State Pageant.  That meeting was the springboard for the beginning of their recording career.  The Sisters changed their name to “DiLaRae” and performed as an opening act for Brass Construction, another Muller-produced band.  They are listed on background vocal credits for albums which Randy produced, including Brass Construction, Mark Radice, Rafael Cameron, and Charles Earland.

  • 2 Officers Down New York New York= 187

    in Motivation

    NEW YORK- POST!


    Two uniformed NYPD officers were shot dead Saturday afternoon as they sat in their marked police car on a Brooklyn street corner — in what investigators believe was a crazed gunman’s ­assassination-style mission to avenge Eric Garner and Michael Brown.“No warning, no provocation — they were quite simply assassinated, targeted for their uniform,” Police Commissioner William Bratton said.


    Officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos were working overtime as part of an anti-terrorism drill in Bedford-Stuyvesant just before 3 p.m. when they were shot point-blank in the head by lone gunman Ismaaiyl Brinsley, 28, who had addresses in Georgia, Maryland and Brooklyn.


    Moments after killing the two officers, Brinsley, too, was dead, having turned his gun on himself on a nearby subway platform as cops closed in.


    Liu, 32, a newlywed of only two months, had seven years on the force; Ramos, 40, dad to two sons, had two years on the job.


    Brinsley was already a fugitive, suspected of putting a bullet in his ex-girlfriend’s abdomen at her residence in Baltimore at 5:45 a.m. Saturday, Bratton said.


    By early Saturday afternoon — just three hours before shooting Liu and Ramos — vile anti-police threats were posted to Brinsley’s Instagram page. The threats referenced the ­recent police-involved killings of Garner and Brown.


    “I’m Putting Wings on Pigs Today,” a person believed to be the gunman wrote. “They Take 1 Of Ours . . . Let’s Take 2 of Theirs,” the post continued, ending with, “This May Be My Final Post.”The Instagram page included an image of a silver automatic handgun with a wooden handle.

    In Connection With The 5 R's: Race, Rights, Religion, Reduction, & Resiliency

    in Lifestyle

    This month, The Clarkie-Connection turns its focus on to several topics that may seem disparate but, actually, are not so dissimilar or unrelated.  We'll begin with an historical perspective, taking a brief look at the famed "Niagara Falls Conference" of 1905 and how that led to the formation of the NAACP, before moving on to the adoption of the 14th amendment and how it addressed citizenship rights and equal protection of the laws.  This will lead, directly, into a discussion of The Hobby Lobby case - currently in the news and, more specifically, the Supreme Court - and how that is shaping the national debate on religious freedom in America.  We'll then pick up where we left off last month in our ongoing discussion of The State of Education in America by looking at the staggering reductions in matriculations of minority students within NYC's three specialized schools.  Thirdly, we'll be shining a spotlight on how resiliency through racial/cultural identity, particularly for African-American youth, can positively impact academic achievement and success.  Join us for a complex series of topical issues and see how we deftly interweave them over the course of the hour!  Don't Miss This One! ~
