It's almost time for Turkey Day for those that celebrate it. And I know that given the emotional unrest that our country is in right now, it's more important than ever to be keenly aware of those things that you ARE most thankful for. I have a lot that I'm feeling with this election and so on, but today I'm here to focus on the positives that I am using to contribute to my village, as so many are here to pillage my village and leave it bare and bereft of what it needs to flourish and survive. But we are more resilient than that! We have the strength and fight and legacy of our ancestors of yesterday, coupled with the technology and access of today! So I choose to use my art and my voice to address, entertain, heal and the like. Check out what I have on deck and please feel free to support and share and show love. We need this more than we ever have, and our sense of community and cohesion will carry us a long way!

I will be representing my Monolodge family on Saturday, November 19th as I perform a monologue to open the event. It is an original piece and it addresses the need to see beyond your past to who and what you REALLY are. Doors open at 7pm and I hit the stage at 8:30pm. Crown & Ruckus is the movement and The Black Madonna is the theme. Get your tix here to share in this night of articulating the physical, mental and spiritual aspects of Black Matriarchy!

I am both excited for and blessed to work in the fields that make me happy and I will always have a soft spot in my heart for theatre. Whether I am creating it, producing it or directing it. So I'd love for you to come on out and see these amazing projects.

New WBLS on-air dates on deck, I'll be doing some musical performances this month as a featured singer and I am in a new web series as well called "Deka-log" -deets to come! Plus I'm ALWAYS auditioning, so who knows where we will go!
Keep riding with me Shining Starrs...Oh the places we will go! And don't forget, I'm not just helping to build my village, I am also helping to raise it. So please reach out for your media, production, writing, editing and artistic needs. If we can't, we know someone who can and will.
Let's let our art provide us restoration, a voice, hope and revolution!
