Artist and Composer Mark Kostabi was born in Los Angeles in 1960 to Estonian immigrants. Raised in Whittier, California, he studied drawing and painting at California State University, Fullerton. Kostabi moved to New York in 1982, and by 1984, emerged as a leading figure in the East Village art scene where he cultivated a provocative media persona by publishing self-interviews reflecting on the commodification of contemporary art. By 1987, his work was widely exhibited in New York galleries as well as prominently throughout the United States, Japan, Germany and Australia. He inspired extensive international press coverage in 1988 when he founded Kostabi World, his Manhattan art studio, which employs numerous painting assistants and idea people. Beginning in the early 1990s Kostabi's work has been widely exhibited throughout Italy. Kostabi established a second home in Rome in 1996. Dividing his time between Rome and New York enabled him to dramatically enhance his presence in the Italian art scene.
Kostabi has designed album covers for Guns 'N' Roses (Use Your Illusion) and The Ramones (Adios Amigos), Jimmy Scott (Holding Back The Years), Seether (Holding Onto strings Better Left to Fray) and numerous products including a Swatch watch, a Bloomingdales bag, Alessi vases, Rosenthal espresso cups, and a Giro d'Italia pink jersey. Kostabi is the subject of numerous documentary films.Kostabi has been profiled on 60 Minutes, Eye to Eye with Connie Chung, A Current Affair, Nightwatch , The Oprah Winfrey Show, Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous, Nonsolomoda, West 57th, CNN, MTV and numerous television programs throughout Europe and Japan.His permanent public works include a mural in Palazzo dei Priori in Arezzo, Italy, a large bronze sculpture in the central square of San Benedetto del Tronto, Italy, and a bronze portrait of Pope John Paul II in Velletri, Italy. http://mkostabi.com

Broadway star Kate Baldwin joins host Robin Milling for Let's Do Lunch! at Village Prime in New York City. On stage at 59 E. 59, Kate gets her honky tonk on as Tammy Trip, a former Nashville Grand Ole Opry queen in Songbird; music and lyrics by Lauren Pritchard. She tells Robin she has never been to Music City but studied Robert Atlman's film 'Nashville' to prepare for the role and read up on famous female country artists like Wynona Judd and being a woman in the world of country music. She reveals her ultimate inspiration for the character looking sinewy and fit was inspired by a pop star. Her country twang came from listening to a playlist of several country singers, and one in particular became her model.
At Village Prime, the fresh baked bread on the table was tempting, but Kate abstained as she is keeping her strict carb-free diet that she began with her husband; fellow actor, Graham Rowat, who also got in shape to play a gladiator in A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum. A foodie herself, she jokes that they may look great but they're 'exhausted and starving!' She tells Robin how they met during a run of 1776 at the Fords Theater in Washington, D.C. playing Richard Henry Lee and Martha Jefferson. Kate says their four and a half year-old son Colin is an equalizer between career and motherhood.
Kate tells Robin her Broadway debut was as a swing in The Full Monty, and then as a dancer in the ensemble of Thoroughly Modern Millie. Learning the line dance in Songbird was plenty for Kate who jokes that she is a 'recovering dancer.'
The menu at Village Prime consisted of Pumpkin Bisque soup, Roasted Salmon with Hudson Valley spaghetti squash and artichoke puree, Vegetable Flatbread with grilled seasonal veggies and mozzarella cheese, and Tuna Nicoise with bonito tuna, hard-boiled egg, haricot vert, potato over mixed greens.

QUEEN MOTHER MAIAMOUNA M’BACKE71 years ago, on December 19, 1944, Queen Mother Maimouna Mbacke began her earthly incarnation as Shirley Mae Wilkes Dickerson. By age 8, she was awakened and aware of many of her spiritual gifts. Her early spiritual education began in the Church of God in Christ. However, over the years, she has studied from many spiritual schools of thought, always a free spirit who took what was needed for her journey. She has vivid recollection of some of her past lives. She was ordained a minister at age of 21 years and rededicated at age 50. Her assignment has taken her across the USA and to West Africa. Queen Mother M’Backe worked with the late Dr. Ishakamusu Barashango and others. Her ministry included a men’s prison ministry, which employed a unique and innovative approach in dealing with the total man (mind, body, spirit). She also conducted workshops at the women’s prison. Her work includes counseling, meditation and herbal workshops. Her studies have enabled her to deal with people of many different spiritual backgrounds and ethnicities. She established the M’BACKE House of Hope Inc. in Wilmington, DE in January 1991, with a mission dedicated to spiritual, healing and empowerment of humanity in order to overcome chaos, apathy, depression, inaction and violence. On December 27, 1997 she traveled to Ghana, West Africa where she graciously accepted the responsibility of Queen Mother and was formally enstooled as NKOSOHENEMAA - Queen Mother of progress and development of the Village of Asiakwa. In 2003 Queen Mother M’Backe heeded the call to relocate to the mountains of West Virginia, where she resides today.
An interview with DR. GWENDOLYN J COOKE
Dr. Gwendolyn J Cooke will be discussing her new book, "A Ninety-Day Empowerment Journal for Young Women".
NCEBC wants to welcome the full village to question, understand, and ask questions, about governance, educational policy, finances, resources, and the basic democratic principles of equity, fairness, and justice. It is important (if not, vital) that we have this conversation to continue to dispel the myth that black children are incapable of achieving high test scores, therefore public schools are incapable of providing quality education.
"We believe in accountability. We believe that data drives decision-making. We believe in research-based practices. These principles have been used for generations by high performing schools, principals and Superintendents; especially those working and succeeding in urban communities were poverty and race are the dominant elements. This conversation is about the politics, power, economics, and restructuring of a public school system into a charter school system."
Diana Daniels, Executive Director, National Council on Educating Black Children
What Is Happening To Our Children? Dr. Richardson explores the topic of the atrocities that has occurred with children reported in recent news, both in America and around the world. Dr. Richardson examines the role of parenting, community, and politics in the well known African proverb, "It Takes A Village To Raise A Child", made famous by Presidential Candidate, Hillary Rodham Clinton, from the title of her book, It Takes a Village: And Other Lessons Children Teach Us published in 1996. Hillary Clinton's hope for her book was to focus on individuals, not just family members, and their impact on a child's well-being. That was 1996. It is now 2015. How close are we to Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton's focus of her book in helping to secure our children's wellbeing?
Join Dr. Richardson as she explores this and other topics related to the atrocities that are happening to our children globally.

Please join Denise Bolds - Bold Doula and her special guest Aza Nedhari Executive Director of Mamatoto Village as the discussion of birthing while black continues. Denise Bolds, a certified birth doula in New York and MSW is the producer and host of Black Motherhood Empowerment.
Mamatoto Village is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization, devoted to training the next generation of Community Birthworkers and Midwives. ?Mamatoto Village (MV) began in 2008 as a vision written for a graduate school paper, by Aza Nedhari. In 2012, after having worked in a for profit capacity as Doulas, and feeling as if their own training had been inadequate, Aza Nedhari and Cassietta Pringle, decided to form a collaborative partnership and bring Mamatoto Village to life. Witnessing the disparities and lack of cultural empathy in Maternal Health professions, MV founders saw a critical need for the creation of a career-training program for birth workers of color and for direct maternity support services to medically underserved populations.
Mamatoto's mission is two fold: to provide complimentary and low-cost maternity support services to women and their families during pregnancy through the first year of the child's life, and to facilitate the increase of qualified women of color serving in the Maternal Health profession.
Aza Nedhari can be reached on Facebook and at: http://www.mamatotovillage.org Denise Bolds can be reached here on Blog Talk Radio - Follow Black Mother Empowerment. She is also on Facebook as Bold Doula and at:http://www.BoldDoula.com
