Atlanta - Actor Clay Chappell is no newcomer to the big screen. As a working actor, he has landed some prime bit parts in several major films. He played a councilman alongside Dennis Quaid in the remake of "Footloose" and did a scene with Robert Duvall in the Billy Bob Thorton directed "Jayne Mansfield's Car." But his brief appearance in the cinematic drama, "Selma," a historical period piece distributed by Paramount Pictures, has been heralded as the showstopper which may just define his career. In "Selma," Chappell plays a southern registrar opposite Oprah Winfrey as Annie Lee Cooper, a Black women seeking to vote in 1965 when racial discrimination made voting very difficult. The scene, only a minute in length, sets the tone for the entire film, and is Oprah's only speaking role in the movie.According to film critic, Derrick Bang ( the-march-resonates-anew ) "the scene with Oprah is a "landmark cinematic moment: a scene destined to be memorialized, and oft resurrected, for decades to come." Chappell's performance has been highlighted on talk shows across the country, including "Ellen," "The Tonight Starring Jimmy Fallon," "Barbara Walters," and "The Today Show." Not bad for an actor who has been working since 1996 to secure more than five lines in a film!Chappell originally auditioned for the role of one of the klansmen in the film, but was asked by casting director Cynthia Stillwell to come back and read for the role of the registrar for the film's director, Ava DuVernay. After doing so, Chappell was asked back but couldn't make the third audition and thought maybe he had lost further consideration. When his agent at J Pervis Talent called him a week later, requesting a table read, he remained hopeful. DuVernay offered him the part after the read,

Her son Jimmy sustained a severe brain injury.

The spectrum of feelings that she's had to face behind the difficult choices, would bring anyone to their knees. Listen as she shares her heart wrenching story of love and adaptation.

Welcome back Uncle Ernie!!!!!!
Coming back as strong as ever Ernest Rucker Jr. Dave Gilmore and Brent Nation pick up where they left off.. The city of Paterson has an issue with the present Council President Julio Tavares who has basically made it clear that he has no respect for the constituents and voters of Paterson. He has made some racially motivated comments that were offensive to other Council members and his attempt to divide the city has gained some negative attention. Race-baiting and racial division cannot and will not be accepted in the political circle of our city government . We don't have to call this man a racist, he has made it perfectly clear...
This is a must have conversation that needs to be addressed..
Join Ernie,Brent,Dave and special guest as we discuss the petition for a No Confidence Vote against Tavares as well as the up coming Black Condition Conference this Feburary...

Issue: Blacks probably shouldn't become homeowners. Who's to Blame?
Are Blacks burdened by historical factors, such as decades of discrimination, when it comes to owning a home? I find it no surprise that homes in Black neighborhoods are worth less, cause it's racial!
Are Blacks to Blame for their own home depreciation? Blacks can afford to integrate into more diverse neighborhoods. But the whitest neighborhoods have the greatest value, allegedly.
Should anyone put money into a home? Seriously, is it worth it?

3. Some common warning signs of unhealthy grief.
4. What the Bible commands Christians to do for the grieving.
5. How to traverse the challenging waters of being sympathetic without pretending to understand their precise pain.
