The Experience Of A Drumline! & So Much More!

Hello World,

There's an expression in the U.S.- 'It ain't over till the big lady sings.'-In this case it's just the beginning, and no one fits the pun. The 5th Annual, "Battle In the Apple" drumline, dance and step competition in New York will kick off with a free gospel concert featuring the largely talented and inspirational sounds of the Virgina University Gospel Chorale. Thursday, March 17, 2011 at Grace Deliverance Tabernacle. Doors open 6:30pm at 650 Remsen Avenue, corner of Avenue A in Brooklyn, N.Y. Tickets are mandatory. Go to www.battleintheapplefreeconcert.eventbright.com or call (347)264-4069.

The "Battle In the Apple" main event takes place on this Saturday, March 19, and Sunday, March 20th, 2011. Beats are going to be down in the Baruch College Gymnasium. Doors open 5pm at 55 Lexington Avenue at the corner of 23rd Street. Over 500 participants, including high school students from all five boroughs of New York City, New Jersey and Long island will compete on these two days! Tickets are $20 in advance. Go to www.battleintheapple.eventbrite.com to reserve your seats.

Mr. Ty Brown is the event organizer. "This year's "Battle in the Apple" has a certain special feeling in the air. I feel so proud when I hear from all the coaches how serious and focused their kids are in practice," Mr. Brown commented. In creating this year's event Mr. Brown wanted nothing more than to showcase and promote the talents of the youth participating in the event, as indicated by release; Budget cuts to music and art classes in schools have resulted in fewer opportunities to participate in courses at school. By taking part in "Battle In the Apple" these teams and organizations are able to raise much needed funds to keep programs alive. The dance, step and music programs are a vital part of their lives, and provide a healthy, safe, fun atmosphere in which they learn and gain confidence.

Go experience a drumline, and as you've read, so much more. Be inspired to support the following teams and organizations listed below. Be Excited. Be Blessed!

Let Us Teach As We March On!

I recently attended a black history celebration in which a woman on the program was singing Lift Every Voice and Sing. This song is the Black National Anthem. As an African American raised in a predominate black church I'd sing it with congregants during service, as an alum of an HBCU (Historically Black College) we'd sing the anthem at special events and as a member of the NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) which adopted it as the official song, I'm both humbled and proud to stand up in reverence of my ancestry. The lyrics request for a people to give high praise in continued faith and remembrance to past and present legacies of resilience. Be sure to view the words and related links below.
Yet at this event I was the only one standing. It was a teachable moment as I quickly nudged my eldest daughter to stand with me. I could hear someone whisper, ‘should we be standing?’ I didn’t turn around. I figured someone would tell them or they’d ju…

Day On Dreams!

Happy Blessed 2018! I'm elated that new year celebrations are followed by national commemorative events and the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service. Starting this weekend there will be many opportunities to lend a helping hand in our communities across the United States of America. This is a Day On to Serve! The Corporation for National and Community Service expects to engage nearly 1 million people in thousands of service projects in all 50 states. On this day, federal, state, and local
leaders will join citizens in honoring Dr. King's legacy through service projects addressing pressing
community needs.


In 1994, Congress designated MLK Day as the first and only federal holiday observed as a national day of
service, and charged the Corporation for National and Community Service with leading this national
effort. Americans may visit MLKDay.gov to find a service project for MLK Day or a year-round volunteer
opportunity in their own community. If you have not already …

Creation Is Life!

I see this page clear, white, new and I write. I'm creating! I first thought about it. I revisited why I began. I looked at my vision wall. I spoke of who I am and I did it. The rest of the story will be completed as I continue.

It is me. The words could not be written without my ideas, my experiences, my action. This is written revelation. The consistency I've needed has always been in me. So in continuing to encourage this action I do the work. I maintain the flow needed to see these black words fill the page with life through letters. Altogether creating for those after me to be inspired in purpose.

Expression has always been a blessing for me. Verbal shares, written thought, movement and dance. Being still in the garden, watching life in the company of my breath. Walking slowly in admiration for the beauty that grows from a seed. All senses glorifying the experience. I give God thanks for every activity of my limbs.

I close my eyes. I breathe in deep. I feel my heart beat…
