Last weekend, I opened for The Last Poets. Love them, love them, love them and excellent job, Kente Arts Alliance!
I also unveiled my Sarah Palin character and that's about the only time she'll be a hit in my world.
This weekend . . . Build the Hill! September 26-28, 2008!
We had the Kickoff in May and now it's time for the Conference, itself!

I'm so excited! We have a lot of registrants and have exceeded our expected numbers! We have lots of volunteers!
A youth talent showcase on Friday . . . at Margaret Milliones University Prep School, 3117 Centre Ave. at Ewart St.
On Saturday, same place, the Conference filled with a Recognition Breakfast (get up!) information, activities and fun for adults and youth, alike (youth have their own track), and then later that night (8:30pm), an OUTDOOR film screening of Chris Ivey's "East of Liberty Chapter 2: The Fear of Us" at Ozanam Basketball Court, 1833 Wylie Avenue at Sweeney Way.
On Sunday, at the Legacy Apartments (2121 Centre Ave), we have the Crown Contest and Bake-Off, where we get to see who's the biggest and the baddest baker and hat-wearer in the Hill.
Y'all better be lucky I'm not allowed to enter because my banana pudding is lethal! However, one of our contestants has written in, "I bake a mean chocolate mousse cake". Yummy! We'll discuss issues, record oral narratives of the Hill from Seniors and then wrap up the Conference.
Check the website for all of the details, speakers, etc. It's going to be quite lovely.
We are out of space for vendors!
We are almost out of space for registrants!
