We lost a great man, Dr. Ivan Van Sertima, last week. Dr. Runoko Rashidi will be in the studio in the morning to talk about his great friend and teacher and the African Face in Mexico, the topic of an exhibit currently at the Oakland Museum of California, May 9-August 23, 2009. Visit www.museumca.org.
We will also be joined by artists, Malik and Karen Seneferu, a dynamic husband/wife team who will talk about their aesthetic ascension, the intersection between art and politics and their use of art to educate and inspire the youth to greatness.
I am hoping to persuade one of the artists from the OM exhibit to join us on the air, but until he confirms, I'll keep his name a secret. He has confirmed and I am delighted to say we will have as our special guest photographer, Tony Gleaton. He will be giving a slide show and lecture Friday, June 5, 7 p.m. at the Oakland Museum, 1000 Oak Street, in Oakland, California.
Director, Pamela Tanner Bol, will join us also this morning. Her new film, "Who Do You Think You Are," opens at the Red Vic in San Francisco, next week, June 10-11, 2009.
Historian, Research Specialist, and World Traveler Runoko Rashidi presents: "Recollections of Ivan Van Sertima" in Los Angeles, Friday, June 5, 7 p.m. at the Afiba Center, 5730 South Crenshaw (CORNER OF Crenshaw and Slauson).
