... Not really, but just in case you missed the last issue of The Crystal News, I've started a new weekly or so blog that gives examples of on and off line activism and charitable works.    I hope it inspires you to be active as well! Please check it out and follow if you’re so inclined.



Dr. jeff obafemi carr's world premiere of Route 66: Finding Nat King Cole, directed by T'Keyah Crystal Keymáh, was Amun Ra Theatre's best selling show of the season with many SRO houses where patrons paid to see the show on monitors in the Nashville theater's lobby.  The solo show which ran October 8th - October 31st, 2010, explores the struggle of one performer to find his own voice while fighting to embody one of the greatest entertainers of all times. Plans are underway to extend or remount the production.  For more information, call  (615) 329-iAct (4228)

The Chicago Police Department is  looking for a few good men and women for one of the most underserved neighborhoods in Chicago (if not the country), Englewood.  One of the area's finest said, "...we are about 2,300 officers short through retirement, termination, medical reasons and quitting."  The city is accepting online applications and the test is supposed to be given sometime in December.  It is easy to complain about the police (and we often have good reason to do so).  But the department is composed of individuals and this is an opportunity to be a part of the solution...

Tahiera Monique Brown is an author, professional speaker, and advocate for victims of domestic violence. The story of how she and her children were held hostage for two years and her courage to save them has been an inspiration to all who have read her book, Annihilator of InnocenceBrown recently shaved her long tresses in support of other victims and survivors.    She is in talks with Natural Woman / Natural Hair author T'Keyah Crystal Keymáh to collaborate on bringing her story to the big screen.

Kudos to:

Kyle Massey and Brandy on their fabulous feats on ABC's Dancing with the Stars (I think Rick Fox went home too soon); David Barrow Wiley's film, Pearlie Tenders being accepted into in the 9th Urban Mediamakers Film Festival; everyone who contributed to KPFK's Fall fund drive (and then sent in their pledges); and my cousins, Michele Traylor, CEO and Founder of CHARM Outreach and Mentoring Services, and Keisha Nickole, Founder and Directing Producer of the Bronzeville Community Theatre Company for their tireless good works in the community.    Go On Girls Women!!!
