KYLA JADE

THIS IS ME

What a voice! What a talent!

Per her own admission, the song is perfect for her as it expresses her personal feelings. In the live show, Kyla spoke of a comment in her social media:

“Kyla has an amazing voice but I don’t know if I can watch her in a concert.”

Very painful for her because she’s has feelings of poor self esteem and her personal experiences haven’t all been rosy.

Her talent shines through!

Enjoy her performance!!

THIS IS AMERICA

Quite a strong message.

Here’s the Saturday Night Performance.

The title is right on target:

This IS America!

Be forewarned.

Some content may be offensive to some who may shy away from the sad reality.

I had to look up the lyrics to get the full meaning.

Michael Cohen Wiretap Cold Open

It’s a sad day in any country when the dealings of its governance can be fully explained through mockery, satire and cold humor.

This is the current reality of American governance!

Maybe it’s always been like this. The only difference now is that the mask has fallen off and all can see the ugliness, decay, hypocrisy, destruction of the values ‘they’ pretended to have, portray and defend.

Sad American reality!

Let this comedic video speak for itself.

Team Alicia Keys rocks out to ‘Gimme Shelter’ on ‘The Voice’ results show:

Britton Buchanan, Christiana Danielle, Jackie Foster

Tuesday night, May 1, 2018, on “The Voice,” Team Alicia Keys took a break from the competition to rock out to The Rolling Stones‘ “Gimme Shelter” during the live Top 11 results episode.

Britton Buchanan, Christiana Danielle and Jackie Foster accompanied their Grammy-winning coach Keys in an energetic rendition of the rock classic in front of the other judges and the lively studio audience.

Gimme Shelter” was written by the Rolling Stones’ lead vocalist Mick Jagger and guitarist Keith Richards, the band’s primary songwriting team. Richards began working on the song’s signature opening riff in London whilst Jagger was away filming Performance. As released, the song begins with Richards performing a guitar intro, soon joined by Jagger’s lead vocal.

Of Let It Bleed‘s bleak world view, Jagger said in a 1995 interview with Rolling Stone magazine:

Well, it’s a very rough, very violent era. The Vietnam War. Violence on the screens, pillage and burning. And Vietnam was not war as we knew it in the conventional sense. The thing about Vietnam was that it wasn’t like World War II, and it wasn’t like Korea, and it wasn’t like the Gulf War. It was a real nasty war, and people didn’t like it.

People objected and people didn’t want to fight it …

That’s a kind of end-of-the-world song, really.

It’s apocalypse; the whole record’s like that.

~RISE~

Inspired by a true story, a working-class community is awakened when its high school theater program takes on an unconventional new leader

As dedicated teacher and family man Lou Mazzuchelli takes over the lagging department, he encourages his students to unleash their creativity and explore new means of self-expression.

Rise - Season 1

But even though the students discover talents and ambitions they never knew they had, not everyone in town is thrilled. Upset by challenges brought by change, enraged faculty and skeptical parents contest Mr. Mazzu’s galvanizing efforts.

But with passionate fervor running through the town’s veins, no one can deny a revolution is underway.

NATIONAL LYNCHING MEMORIAL

Memorial Honoring Lynching Victims Being Built In Alabama

 “Architecture that’s built to heal”

The Memorial to Peace and Justice, informally known as the National Lynching Memorial, is a national memorial planned to commemorate the victims of lynching in America, and is expected to open in Montgomery, Alabama in April 2018. The memorial is to be built in the downtown area of the state capital by the Equal Justice Initiative, a non-profit based in Montgomery. Also planned is a museum, From Enslavement to Mass Incarceration, to be built near the Montgomery site where slaves were auctioned at market.

The monument “will consist of hundreds of floating concrete columns that will represent each county in the United States and contain the names of more than 4,000 lynching victims”.

It is designed by MASS Design Group from Boston, and will be built on six acres purchased by EJI. According to the EJI, there were over 4000 documented lynchings of black victims between 1877 and 1950; the purpose of the monument is to name and thereby honor them.

Outside of the structure in the surrounding field is another set of columns identical to the ones hanging in the Memorial. These columns, however, are not meant to stay at the Memorial. The outside pillars are intended to be temporary because The Equal Justice Initiative is asking each of the counties which these columns represent to come and claim their monument. They hope that with the claiming of the pillars, there will be a way to see which counties have representatives willing to confront the horrors of their past, and to strive to move forward, and which do not.

~Memorial Honoring Lynching Victims Being Built In Alabama~

Equal Justice Initiative Lynching Museum, Montgomery Alabama Opens in 2018

NowThis Politics

This memorial honors the thousands of African Americans who were lynched between 1877 to 1950

Wes Johnson was about 18 years old when he was murdered in a cotton field in southern Alabama. It was 1937, and according to newspaper reports at the time, a mob of men had dragged him from his jail cell before he could stand trial for the charge against him: assaulting a white woman. Today, only one photograph is known to exist of Johnson, a single picture to preserve his image for posterity – his lifeless body hanging from a tree.

Bryan Stevenson wants to honor the legacy of Johnson, and thousands like him, with a new memorial for victims of lynching in America. Stevenson is a lawyer and founder of the Equal Justice Initiative, a non-profit organization that investigates the lynchings of African Americans. To commemorate the victims whose cases they’ve examined, the organization recently bought six acres of land in Montgomery, Alabama and constructed a memorial.  

Last night, April 8, 2018, on 60 MinutesOprah Winfrey gets an early look at the memorial, which will open to the public on April 26. The memorial contains 805 steel markers, one for each county where lynchings occurred for more than 70 years following the Civil War.

The markers are suspended in air to evoke the horror of being hanged.

The Equal Justice Initiative plans to build a national memorial to victims of lynching in Montgomery, Alabama, which is expected to open in 2018.

To tell that story on 60 Minutes, Winfrey and a team of producers felt it was important to show historical photos of lynchings, images that are likely to disturb many viewers. In an interview with 60 Minutes Overtime, Denise Schrier Cetta, the producer of the story, and Jeff Fager, the executive producer of the broadcast, explain their decision to air such upsetting photographs.
