Sundae Sermon is back this Sunday in Harlem!
Hosted by Bevy Smith (Bravo Fashion Queens).
Featuring a special performance by the cast of Mighty Real showcasing the life of dance music’s one and only Sylvester. And of course music by our favorite DJ Stormin’ Norman and his friends.
For those of you not familiar with Sylvester, know this. On September 20, 2004, Sylvester’s anthem record, “You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real),” was inducted into the Dance Music Hall of Fame. A year later, on September 19, 2005, Sylvester himself was inducted into the Dance Music Hall of Fame for his achievement as an artist. An activist who campaigned against the spread of HIV/AIDS, Sylvester died from complications arising from the virus in 1988. HOWEVER – his trailblazing style and his love of life and music lives on in events like Sundae Sermon. Which is one of the many reasons why Sundae Sermon matters.
We hope the community’s love for this event - recently featured in a leading NYC publication thanks to Michael Feeney, helped in some small way to tip the scales in the event’s favor.

Genealogy site www.Ancestry.com now offers DNA analysis so anyone can track their ethnic origins based on their genetic code.
Per their site: “Get personalized details about your unique ethnic origins. Discover more about your story with advanced DNA science from the experts in family history.”
It would be fascinating to compare Ancestry’s genetics-based analysis of Harlem residents with that of say the US Census’ human-response-based analysis, which we covered here.

Jack Dorsey (co-founder and co-creator of Twitter and founder and CEO of Square, a mobile payments company), connects with entrepreneurs with businesses based in Harlem, in this fascinating interview.
Featured businesses include Harlem Skin Clinic and Astor Row Cafe.
This interview follows Dorsey’s recent appearance at the Apollo, courtesy of Square’s “Let’s Talk” series, which we first posted about on December 13th 2013.
Says Dorsey about Harlem: “There’s an electricity in the air. It’s one of the reasons we chose Harlem for this event.”
