Ghetto Song Bird will be Joining Lamont in the Studio talking about her career an the music Biz.There’s an Electric Ladybird flying coast to coast through modern day psychedelic clouds landing upon head banging clubs, juke style bars,finger snapping cafes, Woodstock like festivals, making college students scream with a stadium state of mind concert born each time this goddess of rock-n-roll by the name of Ghettosongbird rises like a phoenix on stage with her Roxsploitation Band. The sexy, bohemian, North Philadelphian singer/songwriter/guitarist started singing,playing piano by ear and writing poetry locked in her room while her siblings played outside. Raised on her Mama’s old LPs & livingroom jams, she was inspired to perform in talent shows to try out new songs. When Ghettosongbird picked up the guitar by ear she flew right into the open mic scene and began jamming with musicians who played with legends like Jimi Hendrix, Little Richard, Chaka Khan, Tupac, New Birth, and Fishbone to name a hand full, that grew her chops as a guitarist & bassist. GSB is influenced by Black Sabbath, Jimi Hendrix, P-Funk, Led Zepplin, Mandrill, Santana, The Doors, The Bar-Kays, Sly & The FamilyStone, Earth Wind & Fire, Wah-Wah Watson, Prince, Lenny Kravitz, & any exotic sound she could wrap her ears around.
Ghettosongbird has played legendary NYC stages such as CBGB’s, The Bitter End, Snitch, Wicked Willy’s, 106&Park, Apollo Theater, Cafe Wha, The Village Underground, M1-5, Ashford & Simpson Suga Bar, ect., The World Famous Whisky A Go-Go & The Gaslite (with Rosa Lee Brooks who wrote & recorded with Jimi Hendrix) in L.A.,
In Baltimore in 1910, a black Yale law school graduate purchased a home in a previously all-white neighborhood,The Baltimore city government reacted by restricting African Americans to designated blocks. Explaining the policy, Baltimore’s mayor proclaimed, “Blacks should be quarantined in isolated slums in order to reduce the incidence of civil disturbance, to prevent the spread of communicable disease into the nearby White neighborhoods, and to protect property values among the White majority.”Thus began a century of federal, state, and local policies to quarantine Baltimore’s black population in isolated slums—policies that continue to the present day.In 1968, following hundreds of similar riots nationwide, a commission appointed by President Lyndon Johnson concluded that “[o]ur nation is moving toward two societies, one black, one white—separate and unequal” and that “[s]egregation and poverty have created in the racial ghetto a destructive environment totally unknown to most white Americans.” The Kerner Commission (headed by Illinois Governor Otto Kerner) added that “[w]hat white Americans have never fully understood—but what the Negro can never forget—is that white society is deeply implicated in the ghetto. White institutions created it, white institutions maintain it, and white society condones it.”When the Kerner Commission blamed “white society” and “white institutions,” it employed euphemisms to avoid naming the culprits everyone knew at the time. It was not a vague white society that created ghettos but government—federal, state, and local.In 1917, the U.S. Supreme Court found ordinances like Baltimore’s 1910 segregation rule unconstitutional, not because they abridged African Americans’ rights to live where they could afford, but because they restricted the property rights of (white) homeowners to sell to whomever.
In the wake of Baltimore and Ferguson, we're going to be discussing the public policy that created the ghettos in America. What did the government do to contibute these situations? At what level of the government did they occur? Was there any legislative remedy to these issues, and were they adhered to? What affect did these issues have on African Americans then? What effect do they have on African Americans now? If there is a lasting legacy we are seeing today, what can we do to address it?
We'll try to cover as much as we can in our next broadcast. Please join us!

Shelley “AjeeDaPoet” Fowler, the author that brought to you the Unprecedented Melodious Words of Ajee Da Poet has now written her debut novel, the compelling Roses Bloom in the Ghetto.
Lena Summer Johnson, a young girl who grew up on the impoverished streets of the South Bronx, longed to understand the absence of her deceased father and the nonexistent love from a hateful mother, Robin Johnson who profited off of her daughter’s pain for own selfish desires. Unable to comprehend the difference between love and sex Lena searched out the attention that she craved in the arms of men. Some voluntary, some not.
A few months shy of her eighteenth birthday, Lena made a decision to make some much needed money anyway she could. On her short lived quest she runs into Gordon Lenox, an older suave and debonair man who turned her life around, giving her a life that most could only dream of. A life that was wonderful beyond her wildest dreams, made a sudden turn, leaving Lena once again seeking answers about her life.
Roses Bloom in the Ghetto will take you through the twists and turns of a young girl transforming into young woman who all of her life just wanted the one thing that no amount of money could buy, love
