    The Don S. McClure Show Black History Awards Day 1998 - 2009

    in Lifestyle

    The Don S. McClure Show Black History Awards Day Celebration 1998 - 2009 Black History Awards Day,


    A concept given birth by admiration and respect. A concept that was inspired by those who came before me and left an indelible mark upon my mind. The very idea started after reading a few quotes by Carter G. Woodson and others like him.


    Charles Chestnut, considered to be the first African American published fictional writer.One of the best known and most widely read of early African American writers, Charles W. Chesnutt published more than fifty short stories, six novels, two plays, a biography of Frederick Douglass, and countless essays, poems, letters, journals, and speeches. Though he had light skin and was of mixed race, Chesnutt self-identified as a black man, and his writing was often boldly political, openly addressing problems of racial identity and injustice in the late 19th century. and Arturo Alfonso Schomburg (January 24, 1874 – June 8, 1938), was a Puerto Rican historian, writer, and activist in the United States who researched and raised awareness of the great contributions that Afro-Latin Americans and Afro-Americans have made to society. He was an important intellectual figure in the Harlem Renaissance.


    Their work took me on a journey to create something special and something that would offer just as much honor and respect for our achievements. Their efforts guided me to produce.


    Black History Awards Day born from The 28 Days of February project. In Memphis Tennessee. in 1998. reaching 36 States through proclamations, signed by 36 governors in the US and the Governor of Puerto Rico.


    Featured Artist Charlie Wilson: The Weeknd, Eddie Murphy, Barbara Lewis, Make Me your baby, The Tymes So Much in LOve, Alicia Keys & Beyonce, Ciara, I bet.

    "CUBA, ADIOS" BY LORENZO PABLO MARTINEZ

    in Books

    Between 1960 and 1962 more than 14,000 Cuban children escaped Fidel Castro’s communist regime as part of an airlift known as Operación Pedro Pan. LORENZO PABLO MARTÍNEZ was one of these children. In CUBA, ADIÓS: A Young Man's Journey to Freedom, Martínez vividly recounts his participation in a program that bridged two different cultures and achieved great political significance over the years. At eighteen, he forfeits a music scholarship to Prague to accept an unknown future of exile in America without knowing the language, money to pursue an education, or family to help. Plagued by guilt around his sexual identity and having to care for a younger brother, Martínez forges ahead to become the composer of his future; later he opens the doors that enable his sisters and parents to join him after a harrowing sojourn in Mexico City. With the same determination, he attends college and pursues a music education, obtaining a master’s degree from the Manhattan School of Music, then a doctorate from Columbia University. Even after his music compositions are published and performed on television and at international festivals, Martínez feels restless and spiritually unfulfilled. Until, that is, he is able to define the true music of his freedom. CUBA, ADIÓS is a poignant, thoughtful account of one boy’s survival and self-acceptance, written with unflinching honesty and a wry humor.
