#NoBullyZone!

We’ve teamed up against bullying with our Community Partner, Lauryn’s Law, Inc, and Mike Sweetney, former NBA player, as our guest speaker for our #UBeTheirVoice Paint Fundraiser.

Our youth are fighting battles that they aren’t even aware of – depression, anxiety, low self esteem, hopelessness.

Mr. Sweetney will share his story of battling depression and suicidal thoughts. Linda Diaz, Founder & CEO of Lauryn’s Law, Inc, is very close to this cause as she lost her daughter, Lauryn, to suicide.

Join us on Saturday, November 11, 2017, 12 noon at Muse Paint Bar National Harbor to spread awareness and hope in a creative fun space. The painting has already been chosen, but you’ll be able to add your own #nobully hashtag.

This is a family friendly event, so let’s make an afternoon of it!

Tickets available at bit.ly/voicemuse.

If you can’t attend, please consider sponsoring a child that needs to be in this environment with others that stand with them to be their voice.

Grab your ticket today and receive an autographed copy of Tensie Taylor’s Bullied From Terror to Triumph!

Donald Trump Conveniently Ignores Anniversary of One of America’s Worst Acts of Terror

Urban Marketing Group Staff

Published

Three days before a national tragedy would shake the entire world, on September 8, 2001, George Bush issued a proclamation recognizing one of the darkest hours in American history. On September 15, 2013, Barack Obama’s White House sent out an official statement recognizing the same solemn day.

George W. Bush’s Proclamation 7460 reads, in part:

As a Nation, we celebrate those achievements and look forward to new challenges. At the same time, we also recognize that racism still exists in America.

One of the darkest days for the cause of civil rights was September 15, 1963, when a bomb exploded in the basement of the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama. The blast ended the lives of four young African-American girls, and ultimately demonstrated the tragic human costs of bigotry and intolerance.

Barack Obama’s Statement from the President on the 50th Anniversary of the 16th Street Baptist Church Bombing in Birmingham, Al, reads:

Today, we remember Addie Mae Collins, Denise McNair, Carole Robertson, and Cynthia Wesley who were killed 50 years ago in the 16th Street Baptist Church bombing. That horrific day in Birmingham, Alabama quickly became a defining moment for the Civil Rights Movement. It galvanized Americans all across the country to stand up for equality and broadened support for a movement that would eventually lead to the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Earlier this year, I was honored to meet with family members of those four precious little girls as America posthumously awarded them the Congressional Gold Medal, one of our nation’s highest civilian honors.

‘Turn Me Loose’ pays homage to Dick Gregory | Champagne and Reception, Friday, October 12

Urban Marketing Group Staff

Published

The heckling is raw in “Turn Me Loose,” and you can get in on it if you dare. Edwin Lee Gibson plays comedian Dick Gregory in this biographical drama of the comedian/activist, who died last year at the age of 84, and true to Gregory’s form, the joking gets serious. You want to call him something? He invites the audience to stand up in the light and do it.

It’s a stark moment, and reflective of the combative tone that saturates Gretchen Law’s 90-minute drama at Arena Stage. Gregory’s life and career were indelibly shaped by the civil rights era; he knew the breakthroughs of getting attention on late-night talk shows (and playing hardball to land the gig on dignified terms), and he lived through the setbacks of murders and assassinations. The show draws plenty of laughs with jokes that still sting: a long story about moving into a white neighborhood, cutting his lawn and being mistaken for “help” that culminates in a racy punchline too explosively funny to spoil here.

But Dick Gregory knew, and Law underlines, that at some point it’s just not funny anymore.

“Do you want to be funny?” Gregory is asked at one point during an interview. The answer comes slow, and it drives the point home.

Bio-dramas can be hero worship, and Law’s script — fully titled “A Play About Comic Genius Dick Gregory” — does not break the mold. (The play premiered when Gregory was alive, and the extensive producing credits for this show include John Legend.) Director John Gould Rubin sticks close to the comedy-club environment of Christopher Barreca’s showbizzy set as the stream-of-consciousness scenes hit the high points of Gregory’s life.

Best Buy Co, Inc.

There’s Gregory in the early 1960s, a hip-looking young man cracking savvy jokes, cradling a cocktail and a cigarette, getting a gig in front of Southerners at the Playboy Club. There’s Gregory in later years, an aged sage wagging his finger at us about the conspiracies we just won’t get wise to, from food (he evangelized for a strict vegetarian diet) to undying American racism.
