Gil Scott Heron

Many have shared the impact this soul has had on their lives.  I play a excerpt from my all time favorite Message to The Messengers., I think I’ll CallIt Morning.

Bonus:  If you go to his website www.gilscottheron.net and at the top sign up for his mailing list, you get a free download of a song you may not have heard:  Where Did the Night Go? 

I remembered Doc Barnett Williams who used to play percussion along with Gil and when I looked him up was sad to learn that he preceded Gil Scott in death in 2006.  Read More Here in the Washington Post

Our Adoption Story

"Boo" Not her real name

Dad

Mom, Rory McKellar-Mullen, blogger

Many people have asked about our adoption story. In short, we don’t really have much of one. Once we embarked on our adoption path it took almost no time (in the adoption world) to be placed with our lovely little girl. In fact, buying our house took way longer (we bought a short sale); and I have to say we signed more paperwork for the house than we did for our daughter, but that’s another story!

The journey that brought us to adoption was also a short one. Our plan was to have one birth child and adopt the rest. Well, we did have our one birth child, a son, in 2006. Sadly, though, he was stillborn. It was a devastating blow to the family, but has since brought with it great blessings.

After mourning our loss, we continued onward with our original plan to “adopt the rest” by attending our first adoption information meeting in October 2007 with the intent to foster-adopt. I approached the adoption paperwork with great vigor  (I’m one of those crazy people who loves paperwork) and managed to complete our packet within 3 weeks, fingerprints, training, and all. All we had to do was wait for our letters of recommendation to come in and then our home-study was scheduled for November 14th. Surprisingly, on December 10, 2007 a year to the day of our son’s original due date, we received a phone call that a healthy 3-day-old girl was relinquished at the hospital and would we be interested in submitting our home-study for her. Absolutely! Only problem was, our home-study was not yet written! Thanks to some hard work by our social worker our home-study was quickly finished and submitted for consideration. Three days later we were informed that we had been selected by the match coordinator and we picked up Boo from the adoption agency, at a mere 6 days old. In total, our whole adoption journey from information meeting to bringing Boo home was 2 months. It took us 9 months from offering on our house until we finally moved in!

So you can see that our story is a little unique among adoption stories. In God’s time, we hope to grow our family again through adoption.

This is Rory and her family’s story.  For more, please visit her website (link is above).  Also stop by her Facebook page and “like” it!  http://www.facebook.com/ChocolateHairVanillaCare

Lil Wayne Recording Music with Daughter Reginae

Lil Wayne and his daughter

In light of today’s lead discussion, here is Lil Wayne with his daughter. Allegedly, he was recently accused of saying that he would never date a dark skinned girl.  The brown women to whom he is reported to have made those statements countered with–what about your daughter?  She is brown!  He said he would never have another daughter that was dark.  Allegedly. Here is the story

Excerpt:

“…He then said “my daughter is a dark skin millionaire thats the difference between her and u”. Is this fool serious?

I can tell he was very upset because i brought his daughter up but that is no excuse for what he said next he stated “MY daughter is the first and last dark skin child im having, the rest of my baby moms light skin chicks i even got an asian baby moms to make sure i have a daughter with good hair, too bad we had a son”, everybody start laughing and me and jessica stormed out of the room and some guys followed us saying “not everybody hate dark skin girls Young Money just allergic to Chocolate”, of course me and my girls cursed them out.”   

A video response; 

[youube=http://youtu.be/XjV4-3VjC3M]

Here are the lyrics to Lil Jon’s Song:

http://www.directlyrics.com/lil-jon-miss-chocolate-lyrics.html

Goddamn I love you Miss Chocolate!

Check out This interview with Lin Que on The African History Network (BTR)

Bonus tip: My iPhone headphones hung in for most of the year since I got it last June, but it bit the dust.  So on my husband’s recommendation I went to the Apple store, (ran into an editor I hope to be working with, chatted with CCH Pounder,) presented my mangled headphones and they GAVE me a fresh pair.  But you must do it before June if that is when you got yours!

LinQue: Female MC, Isis/XClan

Listen here.  Isn’t she lovely?

Stroke Awareness Day

About the Healings in  Motion Founder: Mary Ann Nicholson

Mary Ann Nicholson is a twenty-five year veteran in Television and Radio Broadcasting. She has worked in broadcasting in many positions including production, sales, management and
ownership.

Ms. Nicholson served on many boards throughout her career. She was especially pleased at the work that was accomplished while serving over 13 years as a member of the Board of Directors for Abilitys First , an agency that serves people with special needs through-out Southern California. Little did she know that this experience would prepare her for this phase of her life.

After being married just over one year, Ms. Nicholson experienced a personal painful journey of care giving. She became a care-giver to her husband as he suffered an incurable cancer.

In her efforts to support and aid her husband, Ms. Nicholson searched for information available about the disease and possible treatment She and her husband did attend a spiritual health retreat in Tennessee for one month and that journey helped extend the life of her husband. However, the severity of his condition prevailed. Ms. Nicholsons exhaustive efforts finally led to a possible treatment at the M.D. Anderson Medical Cancer Center, but it was too late. Her husband succumbed to the pancreatic cancer the following day. Durring the time that she was mourning her loss,she suffered a brain aneurysm, including an acute sub-arachnoid bleed and also a stroke . Subsequently she had a Grand Mal seizure and a frozen shoulder for one year. She became a child again much to her dismay.

She endured having to re-learn skills that we all take for granted, including walking and talking. Attempting to clap was a painful effort for her. Over time and a lot of diligent work, Ms. Nicholson eventually started driving her car. She studied very hard to earn her drivers license again, attaining a score of 100 on the written test during a thorough one- on- one obstacle course DMV demands of people with severe brain damage.

Paying it Forward
Having joined a stroke support group in Stockton, California, she met a member, who was 50 years old at the time. He had suffered a stroke 25 years prior. He had also been driving without a license for over 20 years. She worked with him each week and arranged an appointment with the Department of Vehicles for him to take his test. He passed the examination and driving test and is now driving legally.

Mrs. Nicholson found that as she helped others, she too healed with her cognitive skills, her ability to recall information as well as overcoming many other obstacles. Using the Pay it Forward model, Mrs. Nicholson continues to heal as she works to support others with disabilities. She works to sensitize Americans to people who have special needs. In doing so , people are encouraged to move beyond their disabilities.

Cassandra Roy

Cassandra Roy
Cassandra Roy is a native of Los Angeles, California.  Attending schools in the Los Angeles Unified School District, she knew at an early age she wanted to be an educator.

To quench her thirst for knowledge, she continued her education first at West Los Angeles College, and then matriculated to Immaculate Heart College where she received her Bachelor of Fine Arts, majoring in Art and English with a minor in Psychology, after teaching for three years she attended Mount Saint Mary’s College and graduated with a Master’s of Science in Counseling and Guidance.  Her journey in education began in 1975 at John Burroughs Middle School and concluded in 2005 at John Burroughs.  During her tenure with the District she held positions as a teacher, class sponsor, District Advisor for the Gifted and Talented program and the office of Student Integration, grade level counselor, College Counselor and Assistant Principal. When Cassandra was assigned to John Burroughs for a second time she knew it was God calling her to move into another area where she could help children.

In 2006, Cassandra became the Executive Director of Holy Trinity Child Care Center which is an outreach ministry of Holy Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church located in Inglewood, CA.  Under the pastoral guidance of her Pastor James J. Lobdell, Cassandra has given the school roots and wings by which, it has grown tenfold.

On a personal note, widowed in 2001, Cassandra resides in Los Angeles with her son, David Alexander Roy who is an honor student at Otis College of Design in Westchester, California where he is majoring in Fine Arts with an emphasis in photography.  Currently she is writing a romance novel and a book about her experiences as a lifelong educator.  Her hobbies include needlepoint, reading, travel and going out with friends to movies and plays.  She is a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.; Alpha Gamma Omega Chapter, HTCCC Board of Directors, and consults with Heart for Kids, a non-profit educational consulting firm.

She wrote “Age for me is just a way of marking time. I have marked 57 years, but I don’t feel it or look it. I enjoy being around people, but I am comfortable being alone as well. I enjoy good jokes and good food. I believe in God with out a doubt. ”

Lura Daniels Ball, Owner, Heartsung, a Marketing Agency and a Singer

Lura Daniels Ball

Singing ever since she can remember, Lura Daniels-Ball began formal training at the ripe old age of 11 at the UC Berkeley Summer Music Institute thanks to the recommendation of her chorus instructor at Hamilton Junior High School.   It was there that she met Phillip Reeder, her music mentor and voice instructor for the next seven years…   Undaunted by rigorous year-round courses in classical voice, piano, music theory, conducting and composing, Lura loved what she was learning, and knew that she was destined to sing.

Lauded for her tonally rich, emotionally powerful and uniquely nuanced vocals that belied her age, Lura had a full performance schedule during her junior and senior high school years that included her performing as a soloist with the Oakland Symphony Orchestra.  She was also a featured soloist for her Castlemont High School choir, the internationally-acclaimed Castleers Chorale.  Her performances included a tour of Europe with the Castleers.    Though formally classified as a lyric soprano with dramatic tendencies, Lura would stun listeners with her ability to “turn it out” vocally in any genre – whether classical, traditional, spiritual, gospel, jazz, R&B or pop music…

Lura went on to attend the renowned USC Thornton School of Music (then the USC School of the Performing Arts), the alma mater of her idol, the legendary, Marilyn Horne.  It is a testament to Lura’s talent that while at USC, she was the only African-American vocal performance major for four consecutive years.

Lura also produced and performed in USC’s legendary student talent program, Evening of Soul, presented before packed audiences that not only included guests from USC, but from the Los Angeles community as well.    Since 1998, Lura has expanded her support of USC’s African American music students with a scholarship named in memory of her parents, Wilburn and Marylee Daniels, as well as, the Lura Ball Music Scholarship.

Though a full-time performance career was detoured by a profession outside of music, over the years Lura continued to perform.   Her solo performances in diverse music genres include:  featured entertainment for special events; original theatrical productions, such as a tribute to Martin Luther King; orchestral works during Christmas and Easter; and many, many more… She has also performed the National Anthem at NFL games, as well as, for the Los Angeles Black Expo, the Los Angeles Urban League, the Black Collegiate Hall of Fame, and for other entities and events.

One of her most treasured experiences include performing “There Is A Balm In Gilead” in  front of Dr. Cornel West, only to have him tell her that was one of Coretta Scott King’s favorite songs and exclaim his delight and enjoyment of her rendition of this classic spiritual.  She was also a national finalist in the prestigious American Traditions National Competition for Singers.

Now, Lura works with her daughter ElleB to stage SoulLoft an open mic and performance opprotunity for emerging Indie artists Tuesday evenings in Leimenrt Park. This venture brings her back to her first professional experience as the General Manager for Performing Arts at USC.  There she was engaged in artist negotiations, and front and back of the house management, skills that she would use in her other professional endeavors over the years since in those positions she would often hire artists.  In fact, because of this expertise, she is still sought after to help stage performances and special events, as well as, judge and evaluate rising talent.

Lura also continues to spiritually lift her musical gift.   Currently a member of the Congregational Church of Christian Fellowship, she performs with the choir for special occasions.

Lura lives in Los Angeles with her husband, Lionel, also USC alum.  They have three children:  Langston, an independent building contractor; Lawrence, a Howard University senior majoring in Business Administration; and ELLEB (aka Lauren), also a singer/songwriter and USC graduate.
