This is a black arts and culture site. We will be exploring the African Diaspora via the writing, performance, both musical and theatrical (film and stage), as well as the visual arts of Africans in the Diaspora and those influenced by these aesthetic forms of expression. I am interested in the political and social ramifications of art on society, specifically movements supported by these artists and their forebearers. It is my claim that the artists are the true revolutionaries, their work honest and filled with raw unedited passion. They are our true heroes. Ashay! Show Link
1. Pastor Kenneth Glasgow joins us to talk about the work stoppage and fast which begins Sept. 9 to end slavery.
Pastor Glasgow's life is one of redemption. He currently serves as the Executive Director for The Ordinary People's Society (also known as TOPS). TOPS is a faith-based organization that bridges the gap between the have and have-nots.
Pastor Glasgow's direction of TOPS provides rehabilitation to repeat offenders while creating a program that target the youth before they reach the Criminal Justice System. Since his own release from the criminal justice system, Pastor Glasgow has remained committed to saving souls and ensuring that redemption is in the lives of those who have served their debts to society. https://www.facebook.com/paskenny.glasgow
