TaharQa Aleem is our special guest on the Jimi Hendrix Black Legacy Series. He will be talking about his new book called : Ghetto Fighters in Harlem World. It was co-authored with his twin brother Tunde Ra Aleem, who made his transition in late summer of 2014. TaharQa continues to carry on the Aleem legacy as he promotes a memoir that the Aleems collectively have pour so much heart, soul and emotion into. This book takes its readers on a whirlwind of a journey through the concrete jungles of the Harlem underworld, as well as a few surprise stops here and there. Although this first interview will mainly focus on the Ghetto Fighters' interactions with Jimi Hendrix, the book offers so much more, as the Aleems made their way through house, hip-hop, and even some New Kids on the Block!!! You don't want to miss this first interview as we go deep into their friendship and mentorship with Jimi Hendrix.

"Like all boys growing up in the early sixties, I was fascinated by space exploration," said Anthony Hose, conductor of the Stetson University Symphony Orchestra. "And, of course, I wanted to be an astronaut."
While it is not quite the same as floating among the stars, Hose did conduct the Stetson University Orchestra performing the American premiere of Voyager written by Warren Greveson, who was inspired by Voyager 1 and 2, two spacecrafts launched in 1977 on a grand tour of the solar system. Voyager is composed for four iPads and an orchestra, and accompanied by a film by Maurice Lock.
In this interview, Hose, Greveson and Lock talk about the music and the inspiration from 37 years of research collected and sent back to Earth by the two Voyager probes.
We humans often feel the need to make things happen – to have things turn out the way we think they should. If we’re facing serious challenges, or if something we’re working on hasn’t happened, our minds tend to jump into action, trying to figure out what to do next.
But the more we struggle to have things go our way, fear, discouragement or frustration can set in, only adding to our struggles.
In Jack Armstrong’s new book, You Don’t Need to Conduct the Orchestra!, Lessons on Letting Go, Trusting and Allowing, he shares previously unpublished spiritual teachings that gently remind us that we can let go of the struggle and then trust and allow our highest good to flow into our lives.
For more than 35 years, Jack Armstrong has been a reluctant, yet willing, conduit for receiving and transcribing remarkable spiritual teachings through a form of channeling known as Inner Dictation -- the same phenomenon through which A Course in Miracles was received.
After publishing his first book, Lessons from the Source, in 2008, Jack decided to devote his life to sharing these inspiring messages with others for whom they can be helpful, and You Don’t Need to Conduct the Orchestra! is his third publication.
Jack is an explorer on the spiritual path whose life’s journey has included stops as a nonprofit executive, Peace Corps volunteer, congressional candidate, small business owner, actor, voiceover artist, and hospice volunteer. He lives on Bainbridge Island, Washington, and strives to practice the lessons he has received.
