"July In Review"

This month, I participated in the Langston Hughes Literary Forum and Book Fair, sought out new marketing ventures, had dinner and great conversations with friends, had some fun in the sun at Ocean City and now gearing up for a vacation break.

Until next time, enjoy each day as it comes and live your best life!

This weekend I checked out the movie "Savages" with John Travolta, Benecio Del Toro, Selma Hayek, etc. The premise of this movie was not cookie cutter: drugs, woman in love with two men who don't mind sharing, turf wars, back stabbing, and the list goes on. Anyway, I thought Oliver Stone did a great job and I give it TWO THUMBS UP!


Entrepreneurs Ben, a peaceful and charitable marijuana producer, and friend Chon, a former Navy SEAL, run a lucrative, homegrown industry - raising some of the best weed ever developed. They also share a one-of-a-kind love with Ophelia. Life is idyllic in their Southern California town... until the Mexican Baja Cartel decides to move in and demands that the trio partners with them. When the merciless head of the BC, Elena and her enforcer, Lado, underestimate the unbreakable bond of the three friends, Ben and Chon - with the reluctant assistance of a dirty DEA agent - wage a seemingly unwinnable war against the cartel. And so begins a series of increasingly vicious ploys and maneuvers in a high stakes, savage battle of wills.Written by Universal

"Langston Hughes Literary Forum & Book Fair"

On July 11, 2012, I participated in the Langston Hughes Literary Forum & Book Fair. I had a great time at this event and enjoyed listening to the various speakers who shared their insights about Langston Hughes and his literary works. Some of the speakers included Koli Tengella (Filmaker, Theater Teacher & Writer), Vivian Fisher (Manager, African American Department, Enoch Pratt Free Library), Mr Carrza Dubose (Lecturer, Dept. of English & Language Arts, Morgan State University), Dr. Dolan Hubbard (President, Langston Hughes Society, Morgan State University), Maggie Anderson (CEO, The Ebony Experiment and Author of "Our Black Year).

Here are some pictures from the event. Enjoy!
