“Black TV Matters: The SOUL! of Today
This performance and conversation with Greg Tate, Sophia Dawson, and Kendra Foster explore how artists across disciplines use art as a strategy for social change and how independent media amplifies their message and documents the movements. With a nod to SOUL!, a 1970s WNET variety-talk show featuring African-American art, community and culture that was also a platform for political expression and the fight for social justice, the conversation will be captured by and aired on Brooklyn Free Speech, BRIC’s Emmy Award-winning community TV and podcast network.” .

Do you know that there are a number artist residencies in NY, nationally and internationally that provide FREE workspace for artists?  My current residency even provided me with a STIPEND!

to talk about how by the grace of God I was able to obtain my current workspace and how you can do the same.  If you’ve never had a studio apart from your bedroom or the one that your college gave you (which you technically paid for) THIS IS FOR YOU!!! See you at 12:30!!!!

One thing that really keeps me going is the constant reminder that I have to give back.  When I was 15 I participated in an after school program that changed my life.  So grateful to God to have had the opportunity to work with some talented young people this spring and to have had a positive impact on their lives.

Thank you to @dyeemah of the @whitneymuseum education department for reaching out to me to be this year’s artist-in-residence.  Can’t wait to share the amazing work created by my students. .

play_circle_filled “Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.”
‭‭John‬ ‭2:19‬ ‭
.
.
.
This morning in my quiet time this scripture took on a whole new meaning.  I asked the Holy Spirit to open my eyes.  When Christ spoke those words he was giving a command.  He knew his temple had to be destroyed in order for him to fulfill his purpose so he basically opened his mouth and ordered his destiny to be fulfilled!
.
.

May that same grace, capacity and determination fall on whoever reads this.  My prayer for you is that you receive the grace to know your purpose in life and the strength and capacity to fulfill it. .

It’s like the more space I’m given the larger I am able to work.  This space has me feeling like I’m literary walking on the pages of the scripture that says, “A man’s gift maketh room for him...” (Proverbs 18:16)

“Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:”
‭‭1 Peter‬ ‭5:6‬
.
.
.
This year I’ve purposed in my heart to humble myself under the mighty hand of God.  To stay seated at His feet, to lay there and stay there.  I have a come what may... mindset. .
.
.
What I love most about God’s word is that He CANNOT lie to me.  Therefor I hold tight to such promises as the one written above.  Oh and I love a conditional promise. .
