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!

Della Reese is an American actress and singer. She started her career in the late 1950s as a jazz singer, best known for her 1959 hit single "Don't You Know". She subsequently became an actress and today is also an ordained Minister.
In 1970, Reese became the FIRST BLACK WOMAN to guest host The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson. She is best known for her role as Tess in Touched By An Angel. In 1989, she starred alongside Eddie Murphy, Richard Pryor and Arsenio Hall in the theatrical release movie Harlem Nights, in which she was seen doing a fight scene with Eddie Murphy.
She has since gone on to appear in Beauty Shop, That's So Raven and MORE! She was also honored in 2006 by Oprah Winfrey's Legends Ball!
The Touched by an Angel star recounts how, at age 13, she came to be hired to sing with Mahalia Jackson’s gospel group. “Mahalia came to our church, and she had a group of singers with her. And one of the singers was pregnant. But nobody knew she was pregnant,” she tells Reel Ladies on the Spot host Nikki Love. “And at that time we had no air conditioning in the church, and the lady fainted. Well, Mahalia was on her way to the South and the pregnant singer’s husband would not allow her to go to the South because, at that time, it was difficult for a black person to get service in a hospital. And he didn’t want to risk the lives of his wife and his child. So the pastors of the church asked my mother if I could go with Mahalia to replace this woman.”

Join me on Thursday, February 5th at 6pm EST. I'll chat with #1 New York Times, USA Today, and The Wall Street Journal bestselling author, Abbi Glines. Her Rosemary Beach, Sea Breeze, Vincent Boys series, and the Existence trilogy continue to excite young adult readers. Her upcoming novel, When I'm Gone: A Rosemary Beach Novel (The Rosemary Beach Series) will be released in April 2015. Readers will meet Mase Colt-Manning, a Texas heartthrob first introduced in Take a Chancewho comes to Rosemary Beach to stir things up!
I had an urge to fix all her problems. Which was stupid. She was doing fine without me. But something about those big eyes…
Mase Colt-Manning has always preferred his humble life as a Texas rancher to his birthright as the son of a legendary rock star. In fact, he rarely visits his father’s rarefied world in Rosemary Beach, especially if it means bunking at his vile half-sister Nan’s house—until one visit leads to a chance encounter with a young, gorgeous house maid who awakens him with her off-key but spirited imitation of a country music star…
Reese Ellis finally has her freedom. After escaping a lifetime of abuse from her parents and classmates for an undiagnosed learning disorder, she seizes the opportunity to be a house maid to some of the richest families in Rosemary Beach. But her job is in jeopardy when she causes an accident at the home of her most important client, Nan Dillon. When a hot, half-naked stranger with a cowboy’s swagger comes to her rescue, she’s intrigued—then afraid once he shows his own interest. Reese has never met a trustworthy man in her life. Will Mase be any different?

As the first moves begin to trickle as the Giants prepare for free agency, join David Aitken and Aaron Yorke as they discuss a number of key topics for Big Blue heading into the new league year. Was franchising Jason Pierre-Paul the right move? With 2014 starters Mathias Kiwanuka and JD Walton released, are more soon to follow? Jerry Reese must also make decisions on a host of pending free agents like Antrel Rolle. New York was incredibly active last offseason in free agency but the team does not look to have the resources set to manage similar spending. With that in mind, where does Jerry Reese prioritize? How key is the draft for the Giants this season, with the team holding a top ten pick in the draft for the first time since 2004?
