    How Does Your Garden Grow a Creative Conversation with William G. Hill

    in Non-Profit

    William Hill Gallery has been awarded the South East Chicago Commission – University of Chicago 2015 Neighborhood Enhancement Grant for the design and installation of a botanical garden in the Woodlawn- Hyde Park community.


    The mission and purpose of the William G. Hill Center for the Arts is to support and improve the creative and artistic expressions and develop the personal and professional artistic and community building skills of youth and adults in Chicago’s Woodlawn Community.


    His mission is to design a garden in the public walkway that enhances the quality of life of those people in the community that live, work and play. By beautifying and revitalize the block of Dorchester between 64th Street Metra stop, to 65th street viaduct; physically, socially and economically by using multi-platform¸ multi-dimensional, multi-cultural approaches to art creation that celebrate the connection and synergy between traditional Art and nature. Using such things as horticulture, landscaping, lighting, botanical gardening of both vegetables and perennials and constructing outdoor and indoor installations, exhibits, and other public art expressions as the vehicles.


    William provides programs that will also  teach,  and create visibility for new and emerging artists, particularly those artists of color who are underrepresented in the art world and who wish to become involved in utilizing the Arts as a community building tool.

    Creative Community Culture

    in Music

       Please join us for a conversation about Creativity, Community, and Cultural relevance. We will be engaged with two dynamic guests.  The first half of our program, we will interview the talented vocalist Ozara Ode. Ozara has started a Gofundme campaign to take her Nina Simone adaptation to Broadway. After reaching much success in Atlanta with the production “In the Key of Nina” during the summer of 2015, Ozara is on a mission to further honor Ms.  Simone’s legacy. We will be talking more with Ozara to find out what she is doing and how we can support her. 


       The dialogue for the second hour will be driven by Pittsburg raptivist, Jasiri X who has been steadily climbing the rungs of the underground ladder worldwide. Jasiri made major noise with his debut single “Free the Jena6”. Tonight he will enlighten us about Black Liberation Theology and share what else he has in store. 


        We will contemplate the fate of a center that was designed with the spirit of Comrade Tupac Amaru Shakur in mind. Built to be a hub of Creative Community collaboration and cultural education, it has long been shut down and now the building is for sale.  We look into ideas about what happened, why, and what we can do differently to insure that similar efforts flourish. Welcome to the Blaq Hour.

    The Role of the Church in Community Development

    in Non-Profit

    Today’s episode is “The Role of Church and Community Development”.  We will discuss the history of the African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Church and its impact on community and society in particular and the role of the Church, in general, and its responsibility to community. 


    Our guest for today is Rev. Albert D. Tyson III, the Presiding Elder of the North District, Chicago Conference of the African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Church. The AME Church was founded in 1787, and has a mission to minister to the social, spiritual, and physical development of all people.


    Elder Tyson is highly involved in the AME Church, and the community and civic affairs of Chicago and beyond.  His resume is extensive, and time does not permit me to share it all, but here are a few highlights.  Elder Tyson is a member of the Board of Examiners of the Chicago Conference African Methodist Episcopal Church. He has served as the Vice-President and and the Parliamentarian of the Board of Directors for the Interfaith Organizing Project (IOP).  Elder Tyson also has served as the Treasurer, and eventually, the President, of the Near Westside Community Development Corporation (NWSCDC). He is a former member of the Board of Trustees for Chicago City Colleges and was recently appointed as a commissioner with the Chicago Public Building Commission.

    Addressing the Pink Elephant: The Black Church and the LGBT Community.

    in Christianity

    No matter where you fall on the spectrum, all of us need to strongly consider and dialogue about how we will do ministry in a world that will no longer define marriage and sexuality by traditional terms.  


    The overall objective of this conversation is NOT to force a change in people's opinions or theologies; the main purpose is to begin the much-needed dialogue on the realities of doing ministry with the LGBT community in mind.  Whether you affirm or deny homosexuality theologically, we can all agree all people are worthy of experiencing God's love; and we must admit that the church has traditionally been a very hostile and hypocritical place for LGBT individuals. How do we do ministry today in a way that upholds our biblical convictions (as diverse as they may be), and still demonstrate love to a community (as diverse as it may be)?


    Special Guest: Pastor Dwight Radcliff


    Pastor Radcliff holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Biblical Studies (with highest honors) from the Long Beach Bible College, and a Master of Divinity degree from Fuller Theological Seminary (with an emphasis in Multi-Cultural Ministry/African-American Church Studies). He is currently pursuing his PhD.


    Special Guest: Pastor Curt Thomas


    Pastor Curt Thomas is a graduate of Stillman College in Tuscaloosa, Alabama where he received a Bachelor of Science in Education.  He furthered his study in ministry by completing a certificate program with Interdenominational Theology Seminary in Atlanta, Georgia. He incorporates the knowledge and skills garnered from his studies in his approach to educating, counseling, andempowering his church members and community members at large. Pastor Thomas serves as the Senior Pastor of The Renewed Church of Los Angeles.
