Cooki Turner Provides the Soundtrack to the Holiday Season with The Gift and Moment 2 Moment Vol. 2

A Christmas in Harlem Returns to OKC – With a Brand New Venue

A Christmas in Harlem is back again, and Part 4 of this annual extravaganza promises to be the best one yet. Culturocity was there in 2013 for the inaugural Christmas in Harlem at Urban Roots, which, unfortunately, is no longer in our midst. Nonetheless, I thought I’d reminisce a bit with a throwback photo from A Christmas in Harlem Part 1, courtesy of [...]
