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

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

Sometimes music is the perfect gift. Cooki Turner has us covered this holiday season. Many of us awoke from our Thanksgiving itis-induced comas this morning to face the reality that the Christmas season is now fully upon us. That reality brings with it another reality for some: We’re not ready, particularly after a year fraught with heartaches, [...]

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

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 [...]

Dream Cast Makes Glengarry Glen Ross a Win for OKC Theatre Company

Dream Cast Makes Glengarry Glen Ross a Win for OKC Theatre Company

“Always Be Closing” is the famous mantra that immediately comes to mind when one thinks of David Mamet’s Glengarry Glen Ross, the Pulitzer Prize-winning stage play that was successfully adapted to the screen for the 1992 cult hit featuring an all-star cast. Yet closing is something theatregoers will wish wouldn’t happen anytime soon for the run of OKC [...]

Mark de Clive-Lowe’s Church is a Spiritual Journey

Mark de Clive-Lowe’s Church is a Spiritual Journey

With his most recent release, Church, Mark de Clive-Lowe (@MdCL) raises the consciousness of his listeners to a higher plane. In the process, he is certain to have made quite a few new converts and reinforced his musical supremacy to the already indoctrinated. On the album’s opening track, The Mission, de Clive-Lowe lulls our ears into a hypnotic trance with an upbeat [...]

“Mr. Unreliable” Apology Too Little, Hopefully Not Too Late

“Mr. Unreliable” Apology Too Little, Hopefully Not Too Late

In a week in which Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling was infamously banned for life from the NBA for his recorded racist remarks, one would think it would be difficult to generate a controversial headline that would rival the fiasco in L.A. Well, leave it up to the good people at the Daily Oklahoman - the folks who literally make [...]

The Queen of Spoken Word Sits Down to Chat with Culturocity

The Queen of Spoken Word Sits Down to Chat with Culturocity

When Brian C. Scott, creator of Culturocity.com, approached me to cover the Kings and Queens of Poetry Tour for Culturocity.com, my main concern was to report the happenings in the most objective literary voice possible.  This would prove to be a task considering one of my favorite spoken word artists, Georgia Me, would be performing at [...]

“Restaurant: Impossible” Episode Was Not a Reflection of the Urban Roots I Know

“Restaurant: Impossible” Episode Was Not a Reflection of the Urban Roots I Know

I get it. It’s reality TV. It’s designed to overdramatize, sensationalize, scandalize and tell other kinds of lies. It’s just saddening and maddening when it happens at the expense of someone you know and love. Such was the case for me while watching the Restaurant: Impossible episode last night featuring my beloved Urban Roots. Let’s start with the [...]

Sean C. Johnson Surrenders All, Defies the Status Quo

Sean C. Johnson Surrenders All, Defies the Status Quo

Christian Hip Hop is considered an oxymoron by many. The genre has come under fire from the church and the world alike as a half-hearted attempt to create a hybrid of the holy and the profane, the sacred and the secular. Indeed there are multitudes of artists who have made names for themselves in the Christian Hip [...]
