    Autumn, The Play Inspired by Former Newark Mayors, Cory Booker and Sharpe James!

    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.

    Newark Police Will Be Monitored!

    in Lifestyle

    According to published reports the U.S. Justice Department announced a federal monitor will watch over the Newark Police Department. The announcement followed the culmination of a three year review of the police department.


    The review found several serious problems that were reasonably believed to be a pattern and practice of the department. Among the problems uncovered were violations of citizens Constitutional Rights, thefts by police officers, and excessive force.


    Why did so many negative and unlawful department wide practices go undetected and unreported for such a lengthy period of time? Who has been held accountable for the wide spread misconduct? Will effective changes be made to make certain these problems are not repeated?


    Please join us on Thursday July 31, 2014 at 6:00 PM for the first part of this analysis and discussion. We will take a very close look at this problem and explain why the proper steps to arrest police misconduct have not been initiated to date.

    Newark New Jersey Native @ChaosDaRealest Speaks with @VickensMoscova

    in Hip Hop Music

    Replacing swift left and right hooks for hooks in captivating compositions, Born 2 Win Entertainment Recording Artist “Chaos” who was born Jameel Laboo, is the next contender fully prepared to compete for Hip Hop distinction.  A proficient boxer, the New Jersey native used boxing as a stress reliever until he realized music enabled him to do the same thing and that it was his true calling.


    Chaos began writing music as a way to just get his feelings out. But after hearing the late Tupac Shakur it became his dream. Growing up in Newark, New Jersey wasn’t easy. He was exposed to the many hardships of his rough, poverty stricken neighborhood.  His father was a drug addict which led his mother to take on the responsibility of being a father as well. His mother worked very hard to provide for her children but she wasn’t able to keep up with the mounting bills.Chaos decided to help his mother and took to the streets very young.


    Newark is a city listed as one of the deadliest places in the world was his home. But he always used music as his get away from his reality. The neighborhood loved to hear him rap, so his hood fame grew fast. But unfortunately his criminal cases did as well. Chaos lost trial, and had his 1st child in the same year. As he sat in prison he knew he had to make a big decision. And upon his release that’s what he did. Go hard with his music and raise his daughter. Chaos came home on a bigger level than he was before he left.

    Newark Police Will Be Monitored! Part 2

    in Lifestyle

    We will continue our discussion of the U.S. Justice Department's announcement of a federal monitor to watch over the Newark New Jersey Police Department.


    The Justice Department's review found several serious problems that were reasonably believed to be a pattern and practice of the department. Among the problems uncovered were violations of citizens Constitutional Rights, thefts by police officers, and excessive force. Additionally the Justice Department report stated, concerns that the NPD's current suicide prevention, policies, practices, and training create an unacceptable suicide risk to future Green Street detainees if not corrected.


     


    Why did so many high salaried members of upper management fail to detect serious misconduct that was a pattern and practice of the department. Who has been held accountable for the wide spread misconduct? Will effective changes be made to make certain these problems are not repeated?
