Greetings: I would like to share with you a really great event that I am co-producing as a fundraiser for the APEX Museum. It would be great if you could attend or pass on to the Morris Brown family since several of the participants are key alumni of the college. Sam Burston will be the MC, Maxine Wright will do a monologue of Zora Neal Hurston, Henry Blackmon 111 and I will be among the Master artist exhibit.
It will be a sell-out. Click here for invite information

The speaker for the Morris Brown College 137th Founders’ Day Convocation scheduled noon, Friday, March 23, 2018 at Flipper Temple AME Church will have to find ways to encourage attendees to “Imagine, Aspire, Believe”. The phrase used by the College as its mantra aptly describes the keynote, Rev. Dr. Walter L. Kimbrough, Sr. whose life has been defined by rising from humble beginnings to build one of Atlanta’s most successful ministries serving the underserved. By his own accord, he readily admits he was born “po and proud” as a Grady baby raised in an Atlanta low-income community. [View More]
