    in Entertainment

    Tune in Monday at 9:00 PM ET as Stacey B. of H. Blu's Word interviews the Diana Ross lead in Motown the Musical US, Allison Semmes.


    Chicago Native Allison Semmes is the embodiment of grace and glamour. Her entire presence and aura is reminiscent of the class and demeanor that exuded from the iconic songtresses like Lena Horne, Josephine Baker and Diana Ross. 

    To see Allison bring Diana Ross to life night after night in the Hit Broadway Musical - Motown the Musical is almost like watching the real Diana Ross come alive right before your eyes. From the moment Allison steps on stage she becomes the embodiment of one of the greatest female singers of our time - Diana Ross. 


    The dynamic singer/actress’ notable Broadway credits have also included the cultural smash hit show, The Book of Mormon. Allison's national touring credit also included the Award-winning musical The Color Purple. Semmes regional credits included Dreamgirls, Bubbling Brown Sugar, The Wiz, and Candide. She holds a Masters of Music degree from NYU Steinhardt.

    Janice Covington Allison: The life and rights of a transgender woman

    in Politics Progressive

    Here on The #SocialSpitballShow, Barbara Dee & Bram Sarkowski strive to air the truth bit by bit on our broadcasts.  The truth is relative to the observer.  


    For many of us, our struggles are financial, medical, family, etc.  Most of us take our civil liberties for granted.  Many still strive to achieve equality under the law.  Members of the transgender community are fighting a fierce battle for something as simple (should be anyway) as their human rights and their rights as citizens of their country.  In the United States, all men (and definitely women) are created equal and deserve to be treated accordingly.


    Our guest for this episode is Janice Covington Allison, who knows all too well the struggles facing the LGBT community.  She is a veteran, an active Democrat, an activist and a recent candidate for Chair of the North Carolina Democratic Party, breaking new ground for the Equality movement.


    Please tune in at 7pm Eastern to hear from Janice as she shares her story and answers any questions you may have.


    This is such a necessary and important conversation.  Let's get the conversation going...
