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!

We open with cast from Multi-Ethnic Theatre's production of August Wilson's Jitney, running through August 31 at the Gough Street Playhouse, 1620 Gough Street (near Bush), in San Francisco. From www.wehavemet.org: "Some of the most talented Bay Area actors are people with day jobs who work in theater for sheer passion and true meaning. Jitney, set in the 'early fall of 1977,' in the Hill District in Pitsburgh, Pennsylvania, is a play about working class men, who provide 'transportation service' to their communities. Then and now, city cabs did not venture into certain communities. This play allows MET actors to bring their real life experience to the stage. The cast is a close knit group passionately dedicated to stories about an important public service: gypsy cab rides to and from African American communities." Joining us are: BENNIE LEWIS as Becker, a well respected man who runs the Jitney Station; VERNON MEDEARIS as Turnbo, a jitney driver who is always interested in the business of others; CHARLES JOHNSON as Doub, a longtime jitney driver and Korean war veteran; CHARLES JOHNSON as Doub, a longtime jitney driver and Korean war veteran; TREVOR LAWRENCE as Fielding, a jitney driver and former tailor with a dependency on alcohol; STUART ELWYN HALL as Shealy, a numbers taker who often uses the jitney station as his base; ANTHONY PRIDE, as Philmore, a hotel doorman and recurring jitney passenger; DAVID STEWART, Becker's son, recently released from prison.

Portland, OR – In an effort to create the life that we want, sometimes counseling is necessary. Counseling offers an opportunity to explore our past and present experiences in order to identify what we need to overcome as we move forward
When counseling is complete, coaching can take us to the next level. What is possible once we’ve healed our past wounds? What does our life get to be now?
Sheila Walty is a counselor, professional life coach and the founder of Create Change, which offers counseling services as well as business coaching, life coaching, retreats, workshops and skill training. Proactive and results-oriented, Sheila works with people who are motivated for change.
“The reason for the name Create Change is that’s what we do,” says Sheila. “If life isn’t going the way you want, we work together to proactively create the changes you want to see in your life.”
As a counselor, Sheila specializes primarily in trauma. According to Sheila, trauma memory is stored differently than our other memories; instead of the memory being stored as a movie in your mind, it’s more like a slide show. This can Ieave people with the feeling that they can’t trust what they remember.
“I see trauma as something that can be healed,” says Sheila. “You need to express to the client that you understand where they are and where they are is fine no matter where it is. It’s important to instill hope.”
As a coach, Sheila focuses on teaming up with you to create a path and guidance toward whatever goals you want to accomplish.
“Whether it’s counseling or coaching, I absolutely love seeing people become whole again,” says Sheila. “Sometimes people don’t think their dreams are possible, I love building optimism and watching the success.”

As a premier expert in the art of positioning females to recognize and maximize their potential, author, entrepreneur, and speaker, Lakara Foster is Founder of She Speaks!, Inc. , an Atlanta-based consulting firm that provides tools, support, and a voice to those seeking a more powerful existence. She Speaks!, Inc. provides retreats, workshops, seminars, coaching, and mentoring programs focused heavily on relationships, love, life, and spiritual development. Lakara has always had an abiding certainty that she has a very rich, very specific, and very rare calling on her life. She has always been aware that she is here on divine assignment, however, she admits that she was not always faithful to this appointment. But, one specific moment forced her to commit to the mission her spirit was assigned at birth.
12 years ago, Lakara Foster sat directly across from Oprah Winfrey as a guest on her talk show. The show was titledThe Turbulent 20s and focused on young women who were experiencing what had been aptly termed The Quarter-life Crisis. They were confused about their purpose and when they would begin to walk in their greatness. Oprah looked each young woman squarely in the eyes and gently said, “The problem with your generation is that you all are not connected to ‘The Source’, but once you get connected, all of your questions will be answered.” That divine meeting eleven years ago provided Lakara with ““WHAT” she needed to do to achieve greatness. Today her personal mission is to show women “HOW” to achieve greatness.
Lakara Foster, a native of New Orleans, LA, holds a B.S. in Psychology, a B.S. in Criminal Justice, and a M. Ed. in Counseling Education from Florida A&M University in Tallahassee, Florida.

The Camino de Santiago (also known as The Way, Camino Francés and others) – the 500-mile path that starts just over the border of Spain in St. Jean Pied de Port, France. From there, the Camino winds through 4 of Spain’s 15 different regions.
First, travelers make the grueling trek up and over the Pyrenees Mountains, and descend into Navarra – a vibrant, green expanse of mountainous highlands and home to the famous Running of the Bulls in Pamplona. Next, they pass through La Rioja – full of rich vineyards that produce the wine for which this small region is famous. The bulk of the Camino passes through Castilla y León – in which lies a terrain that many find to be the most challenging – the Meseta. This flat, seemingly endless landscape of green and wheat colored crops is said to remove all external distraction, leaving a pilgrim with only their thoughts for company.
A rare few do the Camino in as little as 20 days, trekking close to 25 miles a day. The majority of pilgrims take between 4 and 6 weeks to walk the entire 500-mile journey. Though it is traditional to walk the Camino on foot, some elect to do it by bicycle or horse. Whatever one’s method of transportation, whichever Camino one chooses to do, and however fast one’s pace is, each of the millions who have stepped foot on the Camino feel its inexplicable magic and are forever changed by it.
Don't miss another special 'Camino' show with Christopher and his good friend, Jean Callanan, who has traveled the Camino, and will be sharing some advice on how to prepare for your Camino, some great websites, books and other valuable Camino resources! Jean will also recount some of her fondest day-to-day memories of life while on the Camino. This is the 2nd time Jean joins us for another uplifting Camino chat!
