    in Poetry

    The Washington, DC-based ensemble of poets known for its messages of inspiration, empowerment, and social consciousness has performed locally and abroad. Collective Voices' international debut was in London, England, in 1998. Founded in 1995, the group’s current members include Sylvia Dianne "Ladi Di" Beverly, Andre "Brenardo" Taylor, and the group’s founder, J. Joy "Sistah Joy" Matthews Alford, who was appointed as Poet Laureate of Prince George’s County, MD, in 2018. In addition to performing their original poetry, the group presents poetry workshops and coordinates arts-oriented activities throughout the Washington Metropolitan region. Of note, the group presented an annual arts-based tribute, Poetry Extravaganza, for 20 years, honoring the life and legacy of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The event was presented annually at the downtown Washington, DC-based Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Library, which was attended by hundreds each year. Collective Voices has self-published 2 chapbooks, Poetry and Prose For A New Millennium (2000) and Experience, Expression, Expansion (1996), and its members have published 6 individual books of poetry. Collective Voices' poetry has also appeared in numerous anthologies. The group and individual members of the group have received numerous awards and recognitions for artistic excellence, community service, and literary activism, including the 2002 Poet Laureate Special Award from the DCCAH for "outstanding contributions to the art of poetry in Washington, DC." With its debut performance at a women's shelter, Collective Voices has continued its socially-relevant presentations at numerous churches, schools, galleries, youth and senior support facilities and organizations, and at various regional, national, and international conferences and conventions. To Book, contact Sistah Joy at P. O. Box 2073, Clinton, MD 20735, or Poetsistahjoy@aol.com.

    Bringing to light some of the epic dark works that are otherwise unseen/unheard. Here, poets will be able to share a piece of their darkness with us, without fear of judgement. I plan to have topics to discuss poetry, from past to present.

    Welcome To The Couch With Children's Author Talona Coleman

    in Books

    Join Talona Coleman on Thursday, March 16, @ 6:00 PM to learn about Heaven Sent Child Care and the services that they offer. Talona is also a published author and we will be discussing her new book that teaches children about acceptance, I Am Important. The Dial-in number is 657-383-1206
    I Am Important was written to empower, inspire, encourage, and to offer hope to children of all ages. It resonates with the message of the importance of acceptance of self as well as others. We each were created differently; which makes us unique and important! God has perfectly designed each of us with purpose and illuminates beauty and creativity within all. We are fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139:13-14). It is a reminder to all children that they can do anything, and become whoever they want to be (Philippians 4:13). This book teaches that as we learn to love ourselves, we can willingly express and show love, empathy, and compassion to others in spite of our differences. It also conveys that when we accept one another; we have made the choice to demonstrate love; and Jesus Christ is glorified! This is a vivid reminder that Jesus will always love us because he is the Creator of us and our diversity!

    Brown Posey Press Special: The Authors & Friends of Cleveland Concoction

    in Books

    Conventions, large and small bring together creatives and fans like nothing else. Returning to Aurora, Ohio after a two-year absence due to the pandemic, Cleveland Concoction, aka CleCon, assembled authors, creators, cosplayers, gamers, and performers that crossed all boundaries and provided three days of entertainment, education, and fun.
    BPP Show host Tory Gates made his second appearance at CleCon, and while promoting his books, including all three volumes of the Sweet Dreams Series, was able to speak with many of his fellows about their work, their influences and inspirations, and just why they do it.
    These brief, shoot-style interviews include former guests such as Olivia Berrier, Jason Lady and Marcus Cook. We also hear from Vik K. Walker, Weston Kincade, Marcus Calvert, and musical guests Camille and Kennerly, also known as The Harp Twins.
    The purpose of this program is to take you inside the convention, give you an idea of the activity, and also show that no matter what an artist practices, the ways and means are different for each person. We hope you will find a new friend to read or listen to through this program, and as we all hope, you come along on our journey.
