Autumn, The Play Inspired by the Newark NJ Mayors Cory Booker and Sharp James!
SATURDAY, APRIL 19, 2015 EXCLUSIVE: MNN's "The Gist of Freedom" Interviews of Richard Wesley and cast members! Mr. Wesley an Award-winning Playwright and Screenwriter talks about his new play, "Autumn"!
Richard Wesley, whose hits include "Uptown Saturday Night" and "Let's Do It Again" which starred Sidney Poitier and Bill Cosby and "The Mighty Gents" which went to Broadway.
"Autumn," an absorbing new drama by Richard Wesley that probes the fragility of political legacies and human relationships, premieres at Crossroads Theatre Company April 23 through May 3.
"Autumn" is the first full-length stage play, since the premiere of Wesley's acclaimed work, "The Talented Tenth," in 1989, which looked at the lives of a group of Howard University graduates who were part of an emerging Black elite.
“I began thinking that there was a new generation of post-civil rights movement politicians emerging that was very different from the generation that came of age during the civil rights movement,” Wesley said. “There was a group of old-school politicians who found themselves wrapped up in political scandals; and right behind [them] were these younger politicians who were moving up.”
Since 1995, Wesley has been an associate professor of dramatic writing at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, where he served as chair of the Rita and Burton Goldberg Department of Dramatic Writing for eight years. He is a former vice president of the Writers Guild of America, East.
Crossroads Theater Company is located at 7 Livingston Ave., New Brunswick. For tickets, call (732) 545-8100 or purchase online at crossroadstheatrecompany.org.
Voting. A word defined by the Merriam-Webster Dictionary as “an expression of opinion or preference.” A concept well known by all Americans, as it should, considering our many things about this country are decided by elections. President, judges, mayors and governors are all voted upon by the general population; and if not, they are decided by elected officials Join The Smoking Glass Hour tonight as we make a final push encouraging voters to go and let their voice be heard on Saturday November 21 2015

Today on "It's My House" we shall be speaking with Frederick Collins who is running for top political spot in Chicago, which is the Mayors office.
Mr.Collins has some very innovative ideas that are very practical. Innovations such as using Renewable Energy technologies such as "solar", "wind", and "biomas". Using green and clean innovations can reduce or eliminate monthly household energy expenses as well as help the City Of Chicago save money on energy expenses as well.
Feel free to call in and ask Candidate Collins any questions that you have on your mind.

The word "minority" is deceptive. In cities where the majority population is African American, some news commentator will describe it as "70 percent minority." Minority is not a racial designation. If a group is numerically the majority, it doesn't matter what ethnicity the group is, they are the majority! This past weekend, political organizers gathered in St.Louis to examine the numbers. What cities have African American mayors? What states have populations that could form coaltions and elect African American governors? Today we'll examine the numbers and have a discussion with some of those preparing themselves to enter the 2015races.
We're going to handle this story with grace and skill. It's about the rape cutlure behind the murder habit of #GoodCops.

'Arrow' 4x02 - 'The Candidate' Review
Team Arrow is kicking ass, but Thea is enjoying the fight a little too much! An old Queen family friend decides to run for Mayor, but as everyone knows, Mayors don't last for long in Star City! In this case, Damien Darhk has decided to have Anarky grab the new candidate's daughter to pressure her into dropping out of the race! While looking for the kidnapper, Thea crosses the line, and all of this of course gives Laurel an idea that no one should ever have: let's raise the dead! Just one more reason to make the unrelenting Quentin Lance hate Team Arrow even more!
Hillary Clinton sent her book to all the Republican candidates How some of them responded was hilarious.
I am sick to death of everything being a 'hate' crime. Did you know that Philadelphia has a Director of LGBT affairs in the mayors office?
Slaves brought from Africa are now being referred to as workers instead of slaves. Thank you common core.
