This issue of The Crystal News is dedicated to my cousin,  Esther Mason Davis, and to her son, Kevin Mason.  Cousin Esther was the kind of take no mess, heart of gold, organ playing, 'church lady' that made you want to be right with God.  In my childhood, I was a frequent visitor to her kitchen where there seemed always to be a delicious, freshly baked cake, which Cousin Esther was quick to offer saying, 'Don't be bashful.'  Kevin... was not so much a church goer, but lived a righteous life.  Loved by everyone who met him, he kept up with people better than anyone I've known, and taught his sons to do so, by example.  Cousin Esther passed away last spring and Kevin followed less than a month later, but we carry with us our loved ones who have gone...  When my bashfulness attempts to overtake me, I let Cousin Esther's words push me gently forward.  When I am thinking of someone, but think I don't have time to reach out to them, a little voice asks, "What would Kevin do?" and gratefully, I respond.

January 2017 - I celebrated the 104th year of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.!  Our Founders Day is on January 13th, but the celebrations continue through the month and beyond.  In southern California, the Bakersfield Alumnae Chapter hosted our celebration. The 22nd president of the sorority, Rev. Dr. Gwendolyn E. Boyd gave an electrically charged speech, urging Delta's to stand up, stand out and to never give up in the face of adversity.  We also collected a table full of donations for a local organization that provides help services for women in crisis.   
All of my siblings are awesome, but this month, I give a special shout out to two of my brothers.  First, congratulations to my big brother Billy Jon McCombs, for standing up for his son, my nephew, Jonathon McCombs.  Jonathon, who has Down syndrome, lives in a home in Springfield. IL that the city recently threatened to shut down.  Billy Jon is fighting to keep Jonathon where he is. Moving him from a place where he is happy and functioning would be very disturbing. What's more, the rule of having not more than one group home for disabled people within a designated area is discriminatory. There is no such 'density' rule for people who are not disabled.  To learn more read Mary Hanson's article in the State Journal Register,

Congratulations also to my big brother, Brigadier General William Walker. With the recent stepping down of Major General  Errol R. Schwartz, Walker, who is the District of Columbia National Guard Land Component Commander and the Commander of Joint Task Force-District of Columbia, is now Acting Commander of the District of Columbia Army National Guard.  A decorated, career service man, General Walker is also a retired DEA agent whose service therein was also exemplary.  To learn more, check out the WUSA 9 coverage of the story:

December 2016 took me to Phoenix, AZ for the grand opening of Embellysh, 393 W. Warner Blvd., Suite 11, Chandler, AZ 85225. 248-291-2008 Co-owners Sammi McCombs and Angela Holmes did a marvelous job on the fabulous opening on their hair care and rejuvenation salon: They warmly welcomed new and established customers to their elegantly styled, inviting salon space with good music, yummy food, and cool Embellysh goodie bags.  Guests included singer Teri Tobin, who gave an incredible spontaneous serenade!  So proud of my niece Sammi, her business partner, Angela, and all of their stylists for working so hard to make their dreams realities!  Go on women!!!

T'Keyah’s Tools of the Trade Acting Tip of the Month:  When you prepare for an audition, remember that you are your only competition.  Bring to the role what only you can.  Treat the audition as if it is a job.  Your job.  The other actors there have nothing whatsoever to do with you.  Enter the stage or the room as through you have been called there by the stage manager or A.D.  Then perform!

November 2016 -  I met up with some of my FAMU Forever friends in Boston.  Venetia Steward, Cecelia Suluki, Kenny Ash, Angela Robinson Whitehurst and her Honorary Rattler husband Scott Whitehurst and I were there proudly supporting our FAMU brother Thomas Patterson Jr. at the 3rd Annual BASE Ball, a fundraising event celebrating young people and their accomplishments in athletics and education. Thomas (JP) was well lauded as an awesome coach and mentor. The participants also highly praised founder Robert Lewis Jr.'s on his accomplishments with the organization. An athletic and educational mentoring program, the Base instills in young athletes the importance of a college education, and has successfully secured academic scholarships for an impressive number of youth in their program.

November 2016  also found me volunteering again at Ward Villas.  What a wonderful way to spend a day that makes me feel some kind of way.  My Delta Sigma Theta sorority sister Jackie Dupont Walker, an advocate for seniors, and all underrepresented segments of the community, put out the call for help, and the call was heard!  Volunteers packed the well organized facility for a day of service. Another of my Delta sisters, comedienne Angel Gaines, once again entertained the crowd of seniors dining at the facility, while other volunteers packed, bagged, and delivered meals to senior across the city. My publicist, Jasmine Jackson of Rise PR, came with me to deliver more than 44 meals!  We had a great time!

Projects in the Can...  November of 2015 brought me to New York for a role in Candice T. Cain's feature film What Happened Last Night?  In November of 2016, the film hit theaters nation wide. In it, I play Beverly, a voice of reason for Sarah, one on the film's leads, played by Alix Kermes.  The romantic comedy, which centers around a pondering, party-filled college weekend, also stars Clayton SnyderJake ThomasShelley Regner, and Amber Rose. Kudos to William Leon and the cast and young crew of his sweet, sentimental short,  Attached at the Soul. The film was accepted into the Los Angeles Diversity Film Festival,  the SoCal Clips Indie Film Festival, the Oceanside International Film Festival, the The Roswell Film Festival, the Los Angeles New Wave International Film Festival and more. It was an official selection of the LA Shorts Awards, the Roxbury International Film Festival and Top Indie Film Awards, and won the Best Student Short Award from the Top Indie Film Awards, with nominations for Best Actress (Aliyah Royale as Young Margie) and Best Actor (Christian --- as Young Donald). The film also won the best Drama Short Award at Hollywood International Moving Pictures! What a blast I had live tweeting for the summer premiere of SyFy Channel's Sharknado 4!  In this latest issue of the over-the-top sci-fi classic film series, I play Tech Terry, who consults with Aston Reynolds (Tommy Davidson) and Supervisor Wink (Donna Mills) as to what can be done about an unexpected impending disaster...  #Sharknado style.   Projects in the Works... In December... and then again in early January, I auditioned for a wonderful new show on an emerging new platform.  Sound familiar? Well this time, the new platform is New Media or online entertainment.  The new network is Seeso, a division of NBC.  The show is called, There's ...Johnny.  It's a wonderful behind the scenes look at The Johnny Carson Show. In it, I play Roz, the gatekeeper for the beloved talk show icon.  There's Johnny makes series lucky number seven for me. To hear more about the new and a couple of other projects in the hopper...   Stay tuned!

October 2016 gifted me with a travel adventure centering around my sixth trip to the motherland! Three friends of mine and I finally took our long awaited trip to Kenya!
First stop: Germany?  OK That wasn't planned, but below is the postcard I sent, courtesy of Lufthansa Airlines, to begin salvaging the trip:

Picture... Travel companions Lovell Cartwright (far left) Debra Hughes (left) standing in front of I Can Fly students, me (in the white blouse), and I Can Fly Founder Sha' Givens seated
Second stop:  Kenya!  On my first visit to this beautiful country I was delighted by almost every thing I saw from the majestic Masai warriors, to crystalized dirt, from the massive fresh food markets, to the fabulous fashions, and of course the picture beautiful living creatures of all kinds that my eyes captured in this place.  After a night in Nairobi, we took the long ride to Machakos, where we visited the unbelievable I Can Fly International High School, and it's incredible founder, Sha' Givens! Words cannot express how impressed we all were with the work this dedicated young woman has done to create a safe haven for young people there.  Many of the girls were rescued from child marriages, most suffered or narrowly escaped female genital mutilation.  Ms. Givens, however, has turned heartbreak into raging success for these young people who now see the bright possibilities for their futures that they could not have even imagined years ago.  We brought donations including various office and school supplies and a projector.  While there, we visited with and encouraged the students, offered workshops, and even helped to plant a garden!..Back in Nairobi, we were tourists absorbing the local flavor... and shopping for beautiful things.  I was honored to speak with and take questions from the brilliant students of the MultiMedia University of Kenya. My visit began with a tour of their lovely campus.  After my speech I got a pre-birthday serenade by the students, some of whom live tweeted my talk!  We ended the visit with a delightful lunch that included two of my friends and some of the university's staff and administrators.  I am plotting now to get back there as soon as I can!  Thanks also to the Kenyan press, which welcomed me so warmly! 

Next Stop: Wanting to put a stamp on my passport for my birthday, I tagged along with Billie Davis, one of my Kenya companions to her Egyptian excursion!  I spent the first part of my day waiting out our layover in Dubai, and the evening celebrating our perfect view  of the Nile river, with Cairo on one side of us and Giza on the other. This was my second trip to Egypt, but everything was new again thanks to our outstanding guide whose encyclopedic knowledge of Egypt embellished the truly personalized service that only someone who loves his job can provide! Many sight seeing ventures later, all I have to say is: Going to Egypt? Hire Osama as your guide! Email:   Phone & what's App : 00201144038725
I had the honor of contributing to two wonderful books recently.  In one I describe a dream dinner with historical figures with whom I would love to have been able to share a meal: Dining with the Ancestors: When Heroes Come to Dinner, A Black History Coffee Table Book (by multiple Emmy Award winning journalist Dr. Eric J. Chambers)   www.DiningWithTheAncestors.comIn the other, I describe one of my first experiences at Florida A & M University while still a Business major, but in the theater where I would come to spend the bulk of my time on the hill: HBCU Experience - The Book; Co-edited by Black college alumni Dr. Tia Tyree and Christopher D. Cathcart, HBCU Experience - The Book
 celebrates the rich legacy and experiences of those who attended HBCUs.

September 2016 was National Preparedness Month, but is it always good to be prepared! My first emergency bag contained gym shoes, a jogging suit, a t-shirt, bottled water, a small first aid kit, contact solution, contacts, a flashlight, nuts, raisins, a little cash, and a copy of my passport.  I was good to go! ...When grandmother came to stay with me, I packed a bag for her, looked at my own bag for the first time in years, and was shocked to find the food, water, medicines and batteries expired, and the clothes too small!  Lesson learned. This time, I was more industrious with my supplies.   In addition to the usual things, I found a wind-up radio, emergency thermal blankets, tool kits, and raincoats, and more.  My grandmother is gone now, but I still have three bags packed.  I thought of paring back down to one, but decided that... well if you've ever seen me travel, you know I can carry more than three backpacks... So:
1) If you haven't already, please pack an emergency bag or two for each person in your household.  Include copies of prescriptions and I.D.'s, and a toy and / book for children. Store the bags in a safe, accessible place.
2) Check the bags every six months.  Make sure clothes still fit, and switch out things that expire. Keep an inventory.
3) Have working fire extinguishers, smoke and gas detectors, and a fire escape ladder near a second story window.  If you live on in an apartment, check your fire escape stairs. Let your landlord know if there is an obstruction or other problem.
4) Write an emergency plan that includes phone numbers to household members, loved ones not in the household, work / school addresses and numbers, nearest medical facilities; and a designated place to meet if your home must be evacuated.
5) Share your emergency plan with everyone in the household and have emergency drills once a year or more.
Emergency plans can be as simple or as complex as you allow. Just make sure you are as prepared as you can be.

                                 Get Prepared! Stay Prepared!

              I'm So Glad I'm From FAMU! 
For most of my time in Los Angeles, I have supported my local alumni association only when they've called.  They have called, mind you, and, in addition to keeping my dues current, I have answered the call every time I could, as I do when the national alumni or university calls on me for help.  Recently, I attended a meeting in person.  I was glad to see familiar faces and new ones, but not as many as I wished, so I made a commitment to being more active... even when no one is asking.  Your local and national alumni associations need you... even when they do not ask! HBCU's are under attack and in need of your help!  Please support the HBCU of your choice with your time, talent, treasure and input.  I strongly encourage all FAMU alumni to support our school, our president, our alumni organizations, the individual school(s) from which you graduated, and of course, The T'Keyah Crystal Keymáh Endowed Theater Scholarship at Florida A&M University! If you are not a member of an alumni association, join one today! If you are, but are not a lifetime member, become one today!  You do not need to be an HBCU alumnus to join / support an HBCU!

"News From The Hill" -  from the National Alumni Association Newsletter:

              Keymáh Goes Back to School 
Known for her supporting youth in America and abroad, actress T'Keyah Crystal Keymáh has participated in the Back-to-School with the HistoryMakers event since it's inception in 2010.  She represented the HistoryMakers in Atlanta, Nashville, Chicago, Los Angeles and Santa Monica.  September 2016 found Keymáh returning to Santa Monica High School, where she once again spoke to an assembly of a couple hundred students, then spent the rest of the day speaking to individual classrooms.  The actress brought a slide show of her body of work that inspired many questions from the students about the entertainment industry.  

As you have read in earlier issues of  The Crystal News, I upped my support of Black businesses a few years ago. Since my last issue, I've encountered several new (to me) Black business!  Last summer, I had the pleasure of dining at Boyd's New Generation, Springfield, IL. 1831 S Grand Ave E, Springfield, IL 62703 (217) 544-9866. It's a no frills cafe, but the down home service was great. Not a lot of vegetarian options and the lemonade was way too sweet, but the vegetables and salad were fresh and delicious! Speaking of good service and good food, I was delighted to greet the long awaited opening of Black Bottom Southern Cafe, 4806 N. Vineland Avenue, North Hollywood CA 91601 818-856-8532, Since it's not a sit down (indoors) place with entertainment, it doesn't quite fill the gap that Coley's Jamaican left in my heart, but I'm really glad it's there!  Not a lot o veggie options but what they have is great and a delight for meat and seafood consumers.  ...Thank you to those of you who have recommended quality Black businesses for me to add to my Black Friday page.  Please keep them coming! Whether you were inspired by Minister Louis Farrakhan's "Justice or Else," Maggie Anderson's book "Our Black Year, "or recent glaring indications that economic power is needed, please make every season one that uplifts quality Black businesses.   This is where the action is...

Windy City Works -  I spent a lovely and productive summer in my beautiful hometown that included the start of my campaign to promote more Black businesses, leading two post-screening talk back panels for the Black Harvest Film Festival, going to the film "Southside with You" with my sister, discovering a mystical near lakefront path with my walking buddy Paula Anglin, stopping by WKKC to holla at my favorite radio personalty, Mr. Harold Lee Rush, and making plans to debut my newest solo show, "Don't Get Me Started!"  in Chicago later this year.  In addition to seeing quite a few loved ones in Chicago, I also managed to make it to Springfield, IL from there, for my first time attending the JOS Family Reunion!  I met many new-to-me relatives there and learned that one of my best friends from high school and I have cousins in common!    Like with my last visit, I wish I could have brought some of that wonderful rain back with me. My wish came true... and then some!
