I have seen many terrific exhibits at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture and even attended an occasional lecture or film but I don’t usually think of it as a destination for music.  I guess that will have to change. 

The Women’s Jazz Festival is a series of concerts featuring talented female artists to celebrate Women’s History Month.  I am particularly looking forward to the March 8th program entitled:  Four Women: A Tribute to Miriam Makeba, Abbey Lincoln, Eartha Kitt, and Odetta, performed by the Black Rock Coalition Orchestra (BRCO).

Black Rock Coalition Orchestra

The BRCO is a collaboration of skilled, progressive artists of color who specialize in the musical reinterpretation of historically significant bodies of work. I am definitely planning to check it out.

Monday, March 8th  at 7 p.m.

Most who know me, know I love to go watch films, especially documentaries. This past weekend I went to the premiere of 759: Boy Scouts of Harlem, a documentary film about Scout Troop 759 from Harlem. The film played at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture located at 135th Street and Lenox.

I won’t go into too much detail about the film because I encourage everyone to go out and see it for yourself. However, what I will say is that the main character, Keith, is so adorable. All you want to do is root for him to succeed throughout the film and receive all the rewards of attending Boy Scout camp in upstate New York. In addition to watching Keith take on the challenges of camp, the other nice interesting aspect of the film is that it captures the potential of several young individuals. The film shows that these individuals can be or do anything they want in life, if they just stick with it and stay on the path to success, however they choose to define success. In my view, I saw future leaders in the making in this film. And if that ends up being the case…we’re all in good hands! Go see the film.
