There are a plethora of books, online sources and more seeking to provide relationship insight and assistance. Pennsylvania certified psychologist, school principal and author Dr. Umar Johnson made an effort to be another resource last week (Sept. 18th).
The University of Memphis chapter of the National Association of Black Journalists and the Student Event Allocation Committee sponsored an event titled “Dysfunctional Relationships: Media Invention or State of Crisis.” Johnson spoke on the topic, “Black Male-Female Relationships: The Clash of Pain Bodies,” discussing such subtopics as reasons for failure.
Dr. Evelyn Wynn-Dixon will make her first trip to Memphis this week to share her story of persevering through poverty and homelessness to become the mayor of Riverdale, Ga., a suburb of Atlanta.
She will serve as the keynote speaker at The RISE Foundation’s second annual gala, An Evening of Change, which be held Saturday (Sept. 27th) beginning at 7 p.m. at the Hilton Memphis.
Monday is a word that few love to hear. It signals the beginning of another week of work or studies; more “we-time” and less “me-time;” more stress and more mess… for most of us. However, a local Memphis poet, author, and musician is seeking (and successfully so) to transform our usual outlook on Mondays into anything but bleak. Her name is Shana Jay.
Drawing upon her inner-creativity, Shana began writing at the age of seven. She discovered great comfort and joy in the process after she began to keep a journal of her emotional-thoughts following her mother’s divorce.
The Hattiloo Theatre in Overton Square provided the perfect backdrop for an “almost fall” evening of art and jazz last Friday (Sept. 19th).
The atmosphere was eclectic and simply elegant. The VIP guests sipped chardonnay, merlot and cabernet sauvignon and dined on smoked salmon, spiced shrimp, and pasta salad. The lobby was transformed into a gallery of art provided by local artists 1225 Cristalynne (Dupree), Frankd Robinson, Sir Walt, Malika Collins, Peggy Van Buren and Danny Broadway.
