    "In Other Words_Adrian S and Zimkids"

    in Current Events

    I thought it was time to revisit some of my humanitarian shows. Adrian Suskin has been living in this country for well over twenty years, but he was born and raised in Zimbabwe.  It was very painful to him to watch what became of his country.  In this show, he talks about what has happened to the country – good and bad – since Robert Mugabe took office.  
     
    Did you know Zimbabwe used to be known as the Breadbasket of Africa?  And they had a literacy rate of 98%.  98%!   But then, farms that had fed Zimbabwe, and helped other countries, and housed thousands of people and educated their children, now produce next to nothing and employ next to no one.  


    Adrian and some friends set up Zimkids, an orphans village.  They feed and educate them, teach them usable skills, all kinds of great stuff.  Adrian is also a cancer survivor several times over and just won't quit.  


    In this show, we make reference to a couple of movies and I got the actors a little mixed up. Djimon Hounsou was in Blood Diamond, as Adrian says.  He was not in the TV movie, Master Harold And The Boys, as I said.  That was Zakes Mokae.

    The Drum Radio 2/26: The Boomerang Effect w/ Reginald Hudlin

    in Social Networking

    Reginald Hudlin is unique in the entertainment business because of his success as a writer, producer, director and executive. To quote cultural critic Jimi Israel, “Hudlin is a modern-day Gordon Parks, a true monster in the game who totally re-did the blueprint: what some people used to call a renaissance man. I dig him because he made me think outside of the box. Hudlin writes and directs movies, pens a comic book, and he was running BET.

    Hudlin is a pioneer of the modern black film movement, creating movies like HOUSE PARTY, BOOMERANG and BEBE’S KIDS, which are some of the most profitable and influential films of his generation. He is the executive producer and writer of the upcoming BLACK PANTHER animated series starring Djimon Hounsou, and was executive producer of THE BOONDOCKS. Hudlin also directed the pilot of the hit series EVERYBODY HATES CHRIS and was a producer and director of THE BERNIE MAC SHOW.

    Hudlin is currently a producer on writer/director Quinton Tarantino’s upcoming feature film DJANGO UNCHAINED, starring Jamie Foxx, Leonardo DiCaprio, Christoph Waltz, Samuel L. Jackson and Kevin Costner.
