My Weekend..

Below you will find pictures of my weekend, as well as videos. I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed the event.

This was the 17th Annual Pan African Festival for the Tubman African American Museum, where I am the Director of Sales & Marketing.

THIS is what I have been working so hard on for the past two months.

First.. let's set it up. Here is an interview with none other than - ME!

Thursday night students from Fort Valley State University performed spoken word with their host Y-O Latimore (third from the left.) Y-O and I went to elementary school together, that's how far back we go!

The historic Douglass Theatre

Otis Redding, Little Richard, James Brown, Lena Horne and people like this got there start on this very stage!

 Friday night we gathered at the Theatre again for a night of amazing entertainment. Here is just a small sample of acts that performed:

This video is great - it's about Downtown Macon
