    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 Color of Love...When did the Rainbow automatically mean GAY?

    in Entertainment

    Hey there Tea Sippers!! I'm pretty sure you have gotten the buzz that there are many Superbowl fans wishing to protest the halftime show because many feel that it promoted disrespecting police, being too militant with its tribute to Michael Jackson and The Black Panther Party, AND that Cold Play was promoting homosexuality with its colorful injections throughout their performance and the  "Believe in Love" finale. This is going to be a significantly HOT POT of Tea, my darlings, so bring plenty of crumpets!!!

    Training Day 8: Tried through the fire! Being refined by God ; BOOT CAMP!

    in Christianity

    Good afternoon church! We are back at it here in boot camp for our Lord. Today we will continue our teaching on being disciples for Jesus Christ. Today we will talk about how God requires a testing of our faith. By doing so, the Lord is able to see those who truly love Him verses those that simply give Him "lip service." We want to offer up more to our Lord than words, we want to be His servant, totally submitted and committed to Christ! Job 23:10
    But he knows the way that I take; when he has tested me, I will come forth as gold.
