We were deeply saddened by the passing of Michael Jackson. I was a dedicated and loyal fan of his music and philanthropy. Everyone has a memory of Michael Jackson. If I said I had one favorite Michael Jackson memory I would not be telling the truth as I had many. As a young child Michael Jackson was an icon in our family. His energy, charisma, talent and flair were surreal. I remember when my mother bought me the glove and the black pleather jacket. I wanted to wear them everywhere. Until this very day, I have every bit of Michael Jackson. I feel grateful and honored to have grown up on his music. Despite the tabloid rumors and accusations, I have always loved Michael. May he rest in Peace.
I had the opportunity to attend the 100 Black Men of America Conference in NY this past weekend. I learned more about the organization and was pleasantly impressed there were more than 350 mentees who also attended the conference. These children were very well behaved and clearly disciplined. I guess men CAN control children better (smile). They have several educational and mentoring programs that suit children of all ages. I am only familiar with one – The Eagle Academy. The 100 Black Men of America report more than 10000 members. In attendance were: Former Gov. Douglas Wilder (D-VA), Musician Maxwell, Governor Patterson )NY), Congressman Kendrick Meeks (NY), Actress Vivica A. Fox and more. Wow.
Tavis Smiley opened the “America I Am” traveling exhibit in Atlanta on Thursday night and I joined him on his Accountable Tour in Washington DC, sponsored by Nationwide Insurance the week prior. The Nationwide Insurance information sessions were truly informative. I attended several before I had to rush off to Philadelphia. The “American I AM,” sponsored by Wal-Mart is interesting and should be coming soon to a city near you . Ciao ~
Our offices were closed this weekend. Generally our office is open from 9-12pm most Saturdays. We attended the graduation of our Creative Director, Keturah M. Drake. At Couture she was responsible for our design concept for many of our high profile events and to say she was “Great” was an understatement.You See, Keturah is very talented, yet modest indeed. Not only did she graduate Drexel University in Fashion Design, she won nearly every award offered and received not 1 but 4 job offers from some MAJOR fashion designers. Although Keturah’s journey has ended here, she will still contribute our “Art, Music, Vibe” e-newsletter read by more than 25,000 subscribers. It was fantastic working with Keturah and we will miss her big hair and big spirit. From us to her, we wish her much success. You can see her award winning fashion designs in our Art, Music, Vibe summer e-newsletter which will be sent June 15, 2009.
With warm regards,
