Donald Bakeer's Family. He has 7 Children.

Donald Bakeer acting in South Central

This Week on Sunday Morning

Live:

Donald Bakeer is author of “South Central L.A. CRIPS (1987)“, the novel that in tandem with its critically acclaimed film adaptation, “South Central” (Warner Bros. 1992), has been the most powerful artistic combination to combat the 35 year old gang murder epidemic that has now become a culture for many. These two works, and Bakeer’slast novel, The Story of the 1992 L.A. Uprising-“Inhale Gasoline & Gunsmoke!”, are critical in his strategy to end the gang wars with art and fight a growing culture of anti-literacy.

Bakeer, recently retired after 30 years teaching English in several of South Central L.A.’s toughest schools, is a renowned poet and speaker, a 15 year member and former President of the International Black Writers and Artists who has been one of the most influential voices in South Central L.A. for over 3 decades, now. Known to many as “The Master Poet”, Bakeer has performed hundreds of times over the past 30 years in schools, churches, mosques, night clubs, restaurants, bookstores, and festivals in the area. He is the dedicated father of 9, has mentored many, and taught hundreds of people to be poets.

Donald Bakeer

CRIPS and …Inhale Gasoline & Gunsmoke… are action packed, historical novels that chronicle the evolution of black L.A. from the Watts riots in 1965 through the 1992, South Central L.A. Rebellion.

“I wrote these novels after teaching thousands of students and interviewing over 500 gangsters over a period of 11 years. My intent is to put an end to the tradition of gang murder that has claimed well over 10 thousand lives. The rising tide of electronic media and the acquiescence to ‘post literate age’ status for the underclass (N*GG*S) by educators have combined with the moral deterioration of the family to create a violent cult among our youth. At the heart of the problem is a closet illiteracy that prohibits the most violent youths’ participation in legitimate society. My books are written to change hearts and liberate minds (by inspiring the anti-literate to read). The books are crafted to be ammunition against the traditions that make murder fair seeming and violence (for problem solving) most admired.” They are tried and proven over the past 17 years to be most effective in eradicating illiteracy.

My books are meant to enlighten and entertain society, in general, but they are, specifically, crafted to be rights of passage novels for many who would read nothing if it was not about them and addressed specifically to them. I write to eradicate mental blight amongst the underclass. I write to create light.

The books are used quite effectively in classrooms, and, prominently, by libraries, book clubs, et al. The hardback books are1st and 2d editions and in limited supply, so they are collectibles and make enduring gifts.

With All Humility,
Donald Bakeer

Ava DuVernay, Filmmaker, I Will Follow

Ava DuVernay

From Wikipedia In 2008, Ava DuVernay made her feature directorial debut with the documentary, This Is the Life, which won audience awards in Los Angeles, Toronto and Seattle. The film opened theatrically in March 2009, and premiered on Showtime Networks in May 2009. The film was financed, produced, marketed and distributed by DuVernay’s Forward Movement banner. In 2010, DuVernay directed three network music documentaries, including “My Mic Sounds Nice” which explored the history of women in hip hop, “Faith Through The Storm” which is a look at the role that gospel music played in the lives of two black women Katrina survivors, and a two-hour documentary chronicling the Essence Music Festival. All films were broadcast in 2010 on BET and TV One respectively. In 2011, DuVernay’s first narrative feature film, “I Will Follow,” a drama starring Salli Richardson-Whitfield, was released theatrically. The film was an official selection of AFI Fest and Chicago International Film Festivals, and won honors at Pan-African International Film Festival, BronzeLens and Urbanworld. Roger Ebert championed the film, stating “‘I Will Follow’ is one of the best films I’ve seen about coming to terms with the death of loved one. Directed by Ava DuVernay, it isn’t sentimental, it isn’t superficial. It is very deeply true.” The film was released theatrically through AFFRM, the African-American Film Festival Releasing Movement on March 11, 2011 in concert with AMC Independent. Previously, she has written and directed two award-winning shorts, “Compton in C Minor” and “Saturday Night Life,” the latter of which was broadcast by Showtime Television.

Film Distribution

On January 7, 2011 an article entitled “Building An Alliance To Aid Films By Blacks” by Michael Cieply was published in the New York Times about DuVernay’s venture to organize African-American film festivals and orchestrate limited engagement theatrical releases for black independent films. The collective is called the African-American Film Festival Releasing Movementor AFFRM. “I Will Follow” was the first theatrical release of AFFRM on March 11, 2011, making it the first simultaneous national theatrical release powered completely by grassroots means with no formal marketing budget or corporate parent company. “I Will Follow” grossed a per-screen-average of more $11,463, and expanded from five screens in five cities to 22 screens in 15 cities after its first weekend.

David Ornette Cherry

Taken from http://www.davidornettecherry.com David Ornette Cherry grew up in Watts, California. This Watts young man later won the 2003 ASCAP- Chamber Music America Award for adventurous Programming of Contempory Music. He writes, arranges, and improvises music from sunrise to sunset. The pulses and melodies that arise from his jazz, classical, African, world music background, and from playing with some of the great jazz artists of our times, speak about our human experiences through the the language of sound. He listens with an open heart and fresh mind to his collaborators and the world around him in a way that makes his compositions not only music, but a way of life a positive form of energy, and a way to connect. Current work is titled Ensemble for Improvisors. He trains young musicians in world music, theory, and piano. David was born the same year Ornette Coleman and Don Cherry recorded their first album, SOMETHIN ELSE. The ambient music streaming through his childhood was generated by the early collaborations of his dad, Don Cherry, with Coleman and the musicians who visited his parents’ Mariposa Avenue home in Los Angeles. However, it was a wood-chopping accident one summer in Sweden that sealed David’s musical fate as he was confined to music study and later performing with his Dad at the age of sixteen years old.

Darlene Donloe’s Entertainment Report

Her guest this week is Everette Harp, who will be performing Saturday, 8/13/2011 at the Long Beach Jazz Festival. 

As the 90’s progressed and smooth jazz artists began incorporating more hip-hop and classic R&B grooves into the music which came to define the genre, Everette Harp found himself ahead of the curve. Raised in church and weaned on gospel and soul music, the Houston born saxman on his first two Blue Note recordings, Everette Harp (1992) and Common Ground (1994), was already leaning this way, combining dynamic funk edges and urban textures into the mix. His popular 1997 tribute to Marvin Gaye’s 1971 watershed album What’s Going On combined the best of his two worlds, modern day contemporary jazz and the classic soul he grew up with. 1998’s Better

Darlene Donloe, Entertainment

Days further solidified his place among the chart-toppers of smooth jazz. While on his previous albums, Harp sought to push the envelope stylistically and show off all of his abilities as writer, arranger, producer and player (even of straight ahead jazz), For the Love strips away the diversions and focuses purely on Harp’s ability to convey powerful emotions via lyrical playing, beautiful melodies and sensuous rhythms.

While high ambition has always been Harp’s trademark as an artist and performer, on For the Love, the saxman looked forward to the challenge of letting go of pretension, focusing on the love of song and above all, keeping things simple. “I’ve always looked upon each album as a learning experience, and for me that used to mean trying to fill each song with huge arrangements and every sonic idea that came to mind, scattering styles on the other songs once the radio tunes were recorded, and playing a lot of notes. But like George Duke has long told me, there is an art form to being simple and communicating honestly. The result, I believe is my most focused project to date.”

Keeping with that sensibility, the album title For the Love (Read More)

Melissa Shepherd’s Biography

Melissa Shepherd was born and raised in Panama, which makes her fluent in Spanish and English, as well as “Spanglish.” She then  moved to California to continue her college years.Throughout those years, the common thread was, such as before moving to the United States, an insatiable interest in cultural exchange. This excitement about diversity had been fueled by her mother’s creative ways of engaging her students in learning about themselves and their classmates’ cultural background. Additionally, home life was filled with cultural celebrations, Panamanian and otherwise. Whether it was through food, music, or documentaries, her mother instilled a curiosity about the world and a sense of world citizenship.  It is no coincidence that her college life consistently included participation in activities organized by UCLA’s Office of International Students and Scholars. Ms. Shepherd is also one of the founding members of the Latin American Students Association at UCLA, which promoted awareness on campus about the culture by organizing events open to all students.
Ms. Shepherd obtained a Master of Arts degree in Clinical Psychology at Antioch University in Los Angeles, while working as a Case Manager for Olive Crest Foster Family Agency. Simultaneously, she learned from fellow clinicians about family dynamics and gained insight from conversations with foster families of various cultural backgrounds.   It became clearer that basing interventions solely on rigid guidelines about cultural groups impaired effective communication. She found value in listening to an individual’s experience of themselves in the world, as opposed to taking for granted that stereotypes fully explained their thoughts, feelings, and/or behaviors.
