A New Mother Lion to Lead the Pride

“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 [...]

“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 [...]

The Luther Nobody Knew – A Candid Look at the Life of a Legend

The Luther Nobody Knew – A Candid Look at the Life of a Legend

For many, Luther Vandross is synonymous with love. In fact, saying his last name is hardly ever necessary at all. Sure, many artists have achieved one-name status: Michael, Madonna, Prince, Patti, Aretha, Anita,  and the list goes on and on. Far fewer, however, have achieved what I call substance status. Substance status is when an artist’s music transcends mere songs and [...]

Tammi Terrell and Marvin Gaye – A Different Kind of Love

Tammi Terrell and Marvin Gaye – A Different Kind of Love

  We are all familiar with their hits. Ain’t No Mountain High Enough, Ain’t Nothing Like the Real Thing, You’re All I Need to Get By, If This World Were Mine (yes, that one, before Luther had a hit with it), and the list goes on and on. These beautiful and ageless gems are undoubtedly the [...]

Playwright August Wilson – A Genuine American Treasure

Playwright August Wilson – A Genuine American Treasure

  Many playwrights have attempted to capture different aspects of the African American experience at various times in the 20th century. August Wilson managed to capture the whole century, decade by decade, and his stories only had to venture outside of Pittsburgh once. Born Frank August Kittel, Jr. on April 27, 1945 in Pittsburgh, August Wilson is most famous for a series [...]
