Councilman I. Daneek Miller x Black Celebration 

Councilman Miller set the tone for how you really end a “month of Black Culture”… His staff and fellow elected officials like, Tish James (New York Public Advocate), Senator LeRoy Comrie, NYC Comptroller Scott Stringer, and Founder/Creator of the UniverSoul CircusCedric Walker ,

gathered together to celebrate the essence of Black History Month

Though, as Morgan Freeman states can you really sum up your history in a month? 

The show was spectacular with the performances of dance (Devore Dance Center) , drums, song, and saxophone by the lovely talent Ashley Keiko

Mayoral Town Hall hosted by Councilman Miller 

Cold…drizzle and lots of commotion as folks entered into Roy Wilkins Recreational Center lastnight as Councilman Miller and New York City Mayor Deblasio take their seats at lastnights town hall meeting in Southeast Queens.

The gymnasium where the meeting was held was filled to capacity with standing room only, that however didn’t discourage the Mayor from standing tall as he is and readily willing to answer questions from the crowd of eager Queens residents. Topics like Universal child care, Senior Living,  school zoning were the starters of the night. Other issues like the spiking rate of homelessness, new building of hotels in suburban neighborhoods which struck a cord with the audience of listeners. The Mayor sat and directly spoke with the residents and had many of his staff available for help on the various issues pointed out… For more on how things turned out check out Facebook/daneek.miller and his instagram/idaneekmiller

Slim Thug x CNN

Slim Thug is interviewed by CNN anchor Erin Burnett on the definition of what a “Thug” is. Of course mainstream media misconstrues everything. I admire how poise Slim Thug remained in this interview. Also is me or does mainstream media always use a African American or someone of African descent to interview someone of color? Maybe?
