Bill Withers: Musician to Be Honored With Tribute Concert at Carnegie Hall


Bill Withers, who had indelible hits in the 1970s like “Lean on Me,” “Ain’t No Sunshine” and “Use Me,” has been a rare sight in public since his last album in 1985.


But this year has been big for Mr. Withers, 77, who in April was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. (His sharp-tongued speech, mocking the fickle ways of the music industry, stole the show.) And on Oct. 1 he will be celebrated in a Carnegie Hall tribute concert featuring D’Angelo, Ed Sheeran, Sheryl Crow, Dr. John, Michael McDonald, Aloe Blacc, Kathy Mattea and Keb’ Mo’, among others.

A lovely dayyyyyyyyyyyy.....!!!!

"Black Wall Street": America's First 911

Black Wall Street in Tulsa, Oklahoma, went up in flames June 1, 1921, in the KKK-led Tulsa Race Riot.  Black Wall Street, the name fittingly given to one of the most affluent African American communities in the U.S., was bombed from the air and burned to the ground by mobs of envious whites from neighboring towns - with the help of the National Guards.

In a period spanning fewer than 12 hours, a once thriving African American business district in northern Tulsa lay smoldering – a model community destroyed and a major African-American economic movement resoundingly defused.  During the assault

  • 3,000+ African Americans were murdered.
  • 10,000+ African Americans were left homeless.
  • 35 city blocks composed of 1,256 African American residences were destroyed by fire caused by bombing (from National Guard airplanes)

New Orleans Jazz Funeral: Riding to the Cemetery on a Coffin!

(New Orleans Advocate) For 132 years, Charbonnet-Labat-Glapion Funeral Home has made a name for itself in the Treme neighborhood by ensuring that families — even those who weren’t sure how they could pay for it — saw their loved ones buried in style.

On Monday, the family-owned institution laid to rest one of its own, sending off co-owner Armand Charbonnet with a church service and jazz funeral that resounded with the traditions his own career helped carry forward for generations....

Just one more reason I LOVE my hometown Nawlins!  LOL!
