Introducing The Silva Lining Band's new single "Let Yourself Be Free"

Introducing The Silva Lining Band's new single "Let Yourself Be Free"

Join host BJ Murphy on the "20 Minute Morning Show Podcast" as he explores the vibrant musical journey of the Silva Lining Band, a unique ensemble that bridges the gap between two culturally rich cities, Lisbon and London. Born in Lisbon and raised in London, this family trio, comprising Nuno, Catarina, and Tiago, infuses their Portuguese roots with English charm to create a musical fusion that's nothing short of extraordinary.

The Silva family motto is clear: "The more, the merrier." This philosophy is mirrored in their debut album, "Lisboa," set to be released on November 10, 2023. The album boasts an impressive ensemble of over 12 musicians spanning a wide spectrum of genres, from Funk to Swing Jazz to Rock. Their latest single, "Let Yourself Be Free," is a glimpse into this musical tapestry, inviting you to move to its rhythm and get lost in its captivating melodies. With a blend of percussion fills and snappy funky brass riffs, this track sets the mood for a night of revelry and dancing with friends.

Written by band co-founder Tiago Silva and produced by João Sanguinheira and Tiago himself, "Let Yourself Be Free" brings together eight talented musicians, each adding their unique energy to the song. The track was born in the wake of a global pandemic, when lockdowns lifted, and the world was yearning for the return of gatherings and celebrations. Tiago's encounters with people and the infectious energy he experienced during these moments inspired this song, which serves as an ode to letting loose and a tribute to hanging out with friends once again.

To capture the essence of the song, a vibrant and lively party was organized and expertly documented by Pedro Salvado. The result was a resounding success, preserving the soul of the song and its message. The Silva Lining Band is all about family and friends uniting to bring their dream of sharing their music with the world to life. A decade in the making, their journey is a testament to their unwavering commitment to their craft and their desire to share their love of music with the world.

Listen to the "20 Minute Morning Show Podcast" with host BJ Murphy to delve deeper into the Silva Lining Band's story, their remarkable music, and their dedication to creating memorable experiences through their art.

Malikah Berry Rogers talks about The Southern Black Girls and Women’s Consortium

Malikah Berry Rogers talks about The Southern Black Girls and Women’s Consortium

ABOUT THE SOUTHERN BLACK GIRLS AND WOMEN’S CONSORTIUM:

Who They Are

The Southern Black Girls and Women’s Consortium (Southern Black Girls) is a collective of Black women in philanthropy, activism and girls’ work, who hold deep roots in movement-building. Established in 2017, Southern Black Girls has become a disruptor in grant-making and is positioned as a catalyst to fundraise and provide greater resources toward underfunded organizations that, intentionally, support and empower Black girls and women in the South. Southern Black Girls recognizes their critical role and the importance of centering the lived experiences and leadership of those most impacted by deep-seated injustices. The organization is led by four anchor institutions including the Appalachian Community Fund, the BlackBelt Community Foundation, the Fund for Southern Communities and the TruthSpeaks Innovation Foundation. The collective also includes a host of grassroots and advocacy partners, who are actively engaging in this work across the region.

 

The visionary founder of Southern Black Girls is LaTosha Brown, who is also the co-founder of Black Voters Matter.

 

The executive director of Southern Black Girls is Malikah Berry Rogers, who is the voice that will be speaking on behalf of the organization during today’s interview.

 

Why They Are

Fed up with reports confirming that Black women and girls receive less than one percent of the $4.8 billion in philanthropic investments in the south, Southern Black Girls and Women’s Consortium made it their mission to raise $100 million over the next decade to financially empower the goals of Black girls and women. To date, they have already awarded $3.7 million to 221 Black women-led organizations and 504 girls across 13 southern states - Alabama, Arkansas, East Texas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia.

The links between Sierra Leone and the Gullah-Geechee people

The links between Sierra Leone and the Gullah-Geechee people

Amadu Massally is our guest today. He is the CEO and co-founder of Fambul Tiki and he is from Sierra Leone,  a country in West Africa, that is bordered on one side by the Atlantic Ocean.  It is known for the white-sand beaches lining the Freetown Peninsula. And also as one that has minerals!  The main ones being diamonds, gold, bauxite, rutile, limonite, and iron.  We are also blessed with rich fauna and flora and have some unique hippopotamuses, over a hundred bird species, and even rare chimpanzees.

But one of the most interesting things about this country is how it helped to shape some parts of the world via the Transatlantic Slave Trade.  And the formation of the capital city, Freetown, it is arguable, one of the most fascinating stories out there with regard to the establishment of capital cities, the world over.  It is also the only country in Africa that can clearly show a two-way connection with the Gullah-Geechee people of South Carolina and Georgia to date. Sierra Leone has another two-way connection with the Maroons of Jamaica.  We will explore some of those connections on these pages.  While this is not well-known today, Sierra Leonean has a two-way connection with Trinidad and Tobago. Carriacou, Grenada; and Halifax, NS are also connections to Sierra Leone that Fambul Tik has explored.

It's How You Handle It: Life's Journey Guest: Eloise Murphy Purdie & Oglivia Purdie Gibson

It's How You Handle It: Life's Journey Guest: Eloise Murphy Purdie & Oglivia Purdie Gibson

“At the age of 90, I am birthing my book baby, ‘It's How You Handle It: Life’s Journey.’ While nurturing the contents of my biography, I walked right into a global Covid-19 pandemic. Many people were rudely awakened to find that diseases inside their bodies made them more vulnerable to contracting the virus. Even worst, it was revealed that African Americans were disproportionately more affected due to centuries of systemic inequities. The disregard for our needs caused many unfavorable health conditions called comorbidities, which integrated with the coronavirus and killed people fast and in large numbers. I was at risk because I had almost every pre-condition. My family history could reveal the patterns that led to this moment, but no in-depth stories had/have been written in the history books that I taught from. Now I know why my mother kept telling me stories of my family history, why I kept telling my children these stories, and why I must share with you,” shared Eloise Purdie passionately.

Eloise is faced with life’s ultimatum; reveal her history and the lessons it holds or risk it being lost to the world forever. In her story, “It’s How You Handle It: Life’s Journey,”Eloise tries her best to live to the fullest expression of herself, like her role model, Oprah Winfrey. Oprah said that she used her media career to say how people, "...experience shame, how we love and how we rage, how we fail, how we retreat, persevere, and how we overcome." This book is notably a narrative of perseverance through savage odds. It details the ironic story of Eloise; a history teacher that lived through some of the darkest moments in history but was never able to contribute her life story to the curriculum.

This work started as a simple labor of love but ended up a brilliant blueprint on how to elevate oneself in spite of any circumstance. The candid details she is able to recall decades later are remarkable and it is a unique blessing that God has granted her to keep these stories in such pristine condition. The story of Eloise pays homage to her family and is likely the story of many African Americans during the early 1900s; as they did what they could to recover from an enormous interruption to their rich history and prestige. Following slavery, many African Americans could have sunk under the weight of all that was stripped from them, as well as, the lack of resources, health, wealth, and education. Those, like Eloise, who were able to overcome the unpalatable atrocities of that time, have important stories of determination, foresight, and strength that are important to share.

At our best, we are all teachers. A true teacher at heart, Eloise's story brings the past to life better than any textbook ever could. The truth matters.
-Cornelia Gibson

Attorney Keith Smith is running for District Court Judge in Mecklenburg County

Keith Smith has served in the state of North Carolina for over 30 years in various roles associated within the legal community. It was early in my career as a Probation Parole Officer, that I first realized my passion to help others in a way that was both fair and equitable while reinforcing accountability. That same commitment to fair-minded decision-making was later applied to my roles as an Assistant DA and as a Senior Associate Attorney with Mecklenburg County’s Department of Social Services. As an elected District Court Judge, I will adhere to the established rule of law while considering all matters in an impartial manner. I value the work ethic instilled in me by my parents who were of humble beginnings, as they stressed the importance of a strong education, but most importantly, treating people with respect and dignity. The justice system in the United States is an incredible forum and I look forward to applying my legal experience as a dedicated and committed public servant for the state of North Carolina.

Why did 4.5 Million quit their Jobs? Mother-in law taught me family lesson, Watch the weather! Covid is a plague

I am gonna tell you why people are quitting their jobs. My mother in law refused to be away from us during the holidays and she helped me remember what family is. The weather is a weapon that God uses to get our attention, and the Virus is too!

Inspirational artist Shari releases Holiday classic "Hark"

Shari's quest for worshiping God began at a young age; because, even before she knew what worship was, the spirit had her heart. As a young girl who enjoyed devotional time at church in Baltimore, Maryland, Shari found not only curiosity, but a hunger for a closeness with God. Shari found freedom in the high place of worship that would soon become familiar. It would, and has, become home. Shari served as a Worship Leader under the ministry of Bishop Noel Jones at the City of Refuge Church in Gardena, CA, Resurrection Church, under the ministry of Pastor Joseph Robinson, and All Nations Worship Assembly, under the ministry of Apostle Sherman and Dr. Jaquet Dumas.

Shari has opened for many conferences, performed at concerts with many Gospel Recording artists, and has been blessed to be the featured artist on several recordings, such as Glory to the Highest by Bishop Noel Jones & the City of Refuge Sanctuary Choir, Send the Rain by Kingdom Culture Music, Secret Place by FM2 & Intentional, Jesus I Love You by Brent Jones and recently featured on Seek Your Face with the 4thson project, Volume 1. In addition to her music career, Shari is also the CEO/Founder of Wonderfully Made Academy for Young Women. Shari is a must-see, must- hear, and must-listen-to angel of the Lord.

Writer & Director of "3 Days Leave" EW Brooks

Writer & Director of "3 Days Leave" EW Brooks

The island of Oahu is known for its beaches and tourist attractions, but its buzzing film community isn’t far behind. On the heels of the island’s outstanding, “Ala Moana Boys,” a film by writer Alexander Deedy and directed by Keli’I Grace, a local production company, Eagle Brook Entertainment, will premiere it’s film, “3 Days Leave,” at Pearl Ridge’s Consolidated Theatre on November 18th.

Filmed on island with local talent and crew, this premiere will be a first time reveal to them as well.

“Each character within this project was forced outside of their comfort zones to become characters that didn’t reconcile with their own. It will be our extreme pleasure for them to see how it all played out,” says 3 Days Leave Writer, Producer, Director E.W. Brooks.

“We’re a new presence here on island but we were able to hire 10 crewmembers from the community and to pour into local businesses by utilizing their rentals. This is what it's about for me as a business owner, said Eagle Brook CFO, Anthony Brooks, “that is the magic behind the scenes. That’s what makes it worth it".

Local Female Cinematographer, Jannis Ortegon and Hawaii 50 Actress Judy Nguyen were a part of the cast and crew, just over 50% female. “If we all do our part to tip the scales toward equality in the workplace, maybe we can look up one day and see something different out there,” says the film’s Director.

3 Days Leave takes a hyperbolic look at police violence through a Rambo-centric lens. However, its creators are clear, “Don’t think you know our stance because you’ve seen our art. Our goal was to create a piece that would push the dialogue forward. That is it and that is all,” says Writer E.W. Brooks.

Only 20 seconds? Hear what Andrew Brown's Attorney saw on the video!!

Andrew Brown Jr.'s son describes what he saw on police video 05:37

Elizabeth City, North Carolina (CNN)Six days after Andrew Brown Jr. was fatally shot by police, protesters gathered again Monday to call for the release of the body camera footage they hope will answer questions surrounding his death.

Peaceful demonstrations have taken place in Elizabeth City, North Carolina, since Wednesday, the day the 42-year-old Black man was fatally shot by Pasquotank County sheriff's deputies, who according to authorities were attempting to serve him an arrest warrant.

Protesters have called for the release of police bodycam footage, which authorities say they are prevented from making public without a court order. Brown's family was shown footage Monday though the clip was only 20 seconds long, said family attorney Chantel Cherry-Lassiter who was also shown the video.

Captain Dennis Muhammad Founder of The Peace Keepers Global Initiative speaks on the recent Police involved shootings in America

Men and Women are accepting their responsibility to make their communities a safe and peaceful place to live. Due to serious economical time there has been an increase of gun violence and crime with most of its victims being women and children. The safety of the women, children and elderly in the community must be paramount.

There must be a collective effort from all religious, social, law enforcement and grass root organizations to bring peace to these communities. Peace is the common denominator that allows us to transcend above our religious, political and racial differences.

We all want Peace in our homes, community and in the world. But there is no Peace when there is no justice. We must work hard to establish justice for all regardless of class, greed, or color. Where there is Love and harmony there is Peace of mind. We believe when peace is present, violence is absent. Peace is not just the absence of war or violence, but peace is the absence of conflicts, and all conflicts are not violent.

We all must as Peacekeepers eliminate these conflicts so that we can together to create an environment of peace.
