    CALL IN FAVORITE ABENA STORIES...DON"T BE SHY...SHE WOULD"NT BE!
    FRIDAY, JULY 31 ,2015....11;PM-11:30PM CST


    Abena Joan Brown, one of the early pioneers of African-American theater in Chicago and the president and chief executive officer of the eta Creative Arts Foundation for 40 years, died on Sunday. She was 87.


    l


    Articulate, passionate and intimidating to behold, Brown ran eta with uncompromising determination and old-fashioned formality, shepherding the organization to new facilities in an old window factory on S. South Chicago Avenue, near the corner of 75th Street, and always pushing for further growth


     


     


    As Brown often said in interviews, her impetus for starting eta was her own inability to find work as an artist: Its precursor was founded in 1969 by Brown, alongside Okoro Harold Johnson, Al Johnson and Archie Weston.


    Operating initially under the name Ebony Talent Associates, the group wanted to increase exposure and opportunities for African-American actors in Chicago. But Brown found that more training was needed for those actors, and thus eta was born.

    in Writing

    Find out what happens when Karma calls. She doesn’t always play fair, nor does she need any help in her dealings. 
    Joe didn’t know how much he wanted Nia until she walked away from him after being heartbroken in their relationship. 
    He thought he was doing the right thing by trying to work things out with his estranged wife Lisa. Only he found out that he couldn’t let Nia go. When Nia starts dating her best friend Hakeim, it throws Joe over the edge and he only wants revenge. 
    Hakeim's disdain for Joe and his need to throw his relationship with Nia in Joe’s face, cause the soldier to snap and the King of Hearts emerges. Putting Nia and Lisa in a fight for their lives. 
    Nia and Lisa aren't innocent either, they have their part in all of this as well. 
    The vicious cycle of deception and the need for revenge takes these four people on a mental rollercoaster, the question is who will come back sane and who will be lost in mental anguish forever.

    Be Forever Young- the Sea of Soul

    in Business

    Is more natural light favoring your brain capacity? Who controls your biological clock, your hunger, your sex drive, the " happy" serotonin and the " bubbly" anti- oxidant know as melatonin?


    How can you revive your dormant pineal gland before is too late?


    Are you going to allow your modern lifestyles and what comes with it ( alchohol comsumtion, crushing chemicals, and ignorance!)  to shrink and blind your " Third Eye?" 


    What is the power of the third Eye? Your Mind's eye, or the pinel gland helps visualize something so strong, that you can actually, see it. Critical for your mental and phisical heath, know as the " Sea of the Soul", " The Gateway", connects its welbeing to your critical thinking skills, sleeping pattens, memory, creativity and waking state

    On Why Yet's Watch with Author Lisa Y. Sparrow

    in Women

    Mental health problems are a very sensitive topic in the black community mainly because of the stigma that mental illness is a result of an individual being weak. According to a report done by blackwomenshealth.com, in 2011  the depression rate among black women was estimated to be 50% higher than that of white women. With media reporting murders of women such as Sandra Bland how are we to expect the rate to be anything but dismal? But all is not lost and there is hope - Lisa Y. Sparrow.


    Lisa is a divorced mom of 2 children who lives in Columbus, Ohio. She has bounced between foster homes and mental hospitals while growing up. During her early adult years she suffered multiple miscarriages and spent many moments, like many of us, feeling unloved and unwanted. Lisa used her experiences as a springboard to grow in her faith and to encourage and uplift herself. By doing so she encourages not only her children but everyone she encounters and shares her story of empowerment with. And share she does in her autobiography - His Eye is on the Sparrow.


    Join me as I sit down with Lisa as we discuss how she found the courage to become bigger than her circumstances. See ya soon, Why Yet

    Can You Change Your Mind for a Better Future?

    in Current Events

    What is your identity inside yourself?  What if how we have identified ourselves is taken away, like a job, a family or a persona that you have presented for decades?  How can we change our thoughts to live a life that is what we may have seen in our dreams or we wished we could live?  Do you understand how the brain works or do you just get up and move with the chatter in your head?  Who is really in control?  What is thriving in contrast to surviving?  What part does depression play in a stuck life?


    Jennice Vilhauer, PhD, is a psychologist at Emory University and author of Think Forward to Thrive:  How to use the mind's power of anticipation to transcend your past and transform your life.  She is the developer of Future Directed Therapy which helps clients to create better futures in the field of cognitive therapy.
