    IN THE KNOW: Arizona Girls and racism to Politics and Primaries

    in Social Networking

    Two Hot Topics:


    1) Racisim in Schools


    A recent picture circulating around social media showing six white girls in Arizona posing with the "N" word spelled out on their t-shirts has caused quite a firestorm.  What does this inicident, and others like it, say aobut race in America?  It's not the racism of old.  So....what is it??


    2) Politics and Primaries


    The Iowa caucuses were February 1, 2016 and, in case you haven't been paying attention, Republicans Ted Cruz, Donald Trump and Marco Rubio were the clear victors on the GOP side.  As predicted, Hillary Clinto and Bernie Sanders made a showing on the Democrat side.   


    Joining me to talk about these topics is Dru Ealons, the National Director of Advocacy and Public Policy for Mocha Moms, Inc., the nation's leading voice for mothers of color, and founder and CEO of the Ealons Group, a consulting firm in the DC area.

    Hybrid Jazz From Trish Hennessey - with KENYA!

    in Music

    First, let's thank awesome promotions "star", Jason Gorov, for the introduction!  Jason sent "Let Me" by Kenya in 2015 and yours truly listened HARD.  That song popped off the page.  Then, hearing other tracks from "My Own Skin" was more confirmation.  During the holiday season, our guest's take on "Little Drummer Boy" knocked dozens of socks OFF all over the country and the world.  Kenya was on a mission to convey that treasured piece in HER way - and we felt the emotion.


    This enterprising artist has been working hard for some time.  Not only a superb vocalist (trained by the same legendary coach as Dianne Reeves), Kenya is also a songwriter, clinician, educator and Mom.  She knows how to balance the plates in the air - and shows up EARLY, if you dig what that means ;)  


    A native of Denver, this powerhouse had a Dad who made SURE that she appreciated Jazz.  Calvin McGuire used to be a drummer and worked alongside Marvin Gaye.  Growing up, she heard Billie and Grover - but she also was drawn to Minnie Riperton and Stevie Wonder.  HE was a true inspiration.  Jazz, Soul and Pop/Rock - Kenya appreciated The Police and Robert Palmer, too.  Her love of music and her ability resulted in participation in city-wide choirs in middle school.  At Howard University in D.C., she was involved in the esteemed Gospel choir there.  


    With a Bachelor's in Physical Therapy and a Masters in Counseling and Student Development, she had all the tools that she needed to succeed financially.  But she missed music.  A life-changing retreat in Sedona, Arizona, paved her renewed spiritual journey.  After two EPS - now, "My Own Skin", Kenya is exactly where she needs to be.  Success on multiple charts is God's way of letting her know that the world is READY!  Join us on 2/2 - and meet Kenya!
