    T’keyah Crystal Keymáh

    Chicago is a special city. Two former first ladies, Robin Williams, Jennifer Hudson, Walt Disney, Bernie Mack and today’s guest T’Keyah Crystal Keymáh are all products of this spectacular city.
    It is certainly a blessing to be gifted in one facet of the arts, however T’Keyah executes at an extremely high level in multiple areas. The director, actor, writer, producer and poet has struck gold on and off screen. Her initial plan in life saw her heading in the direction of finance. However, a few profound experiences in college lead her to the arts. It didn’t take long for her to be hooked. Although I am certain that she would have made a brilliant banker or trader, the world is grateful that she found her true calling and has in tern shared her talent, spirit and energy with us all.
    The term ‘artist’ is used loosely by many. In the case of T’Keyah Crystal Keymáh, it is not a vague suggestion of what she does, it is the essence of who she is. From improv to live theatre, from network television to movies, T’Keyah has graced our screens for several decades. She is a true legend. Her playful voice over work on Pinky and the Brain made us smile, her iconic roles on In Living Color, Cosby and That’s so Raven are unforgettable, her Solo stage performances have provoked our thoughts. Oh yes… T’Keyah Crytsal Keymáh is the definition of the word … Artist!
    For all that she has accomplished, she has remained humble and is an exemplary human being. It was a definite honor and pleasure being able to share time with her and allowing her to share her own narrative.
    A narrative that continues through her excellence.
    This is the story… Thus far… Of T’Keyah Crystal Keymáh

    Episode 71: Barth of BGoldNYC

    Episode 71: Barth of BGoldNYC

    Barth! If you have never heard the name, it is now time to remember it! Barth is poised to be the next big… no colossal thing in fashion.
    Born and raised in Brooklyn, Barth was influenced early on by styles, cuts and colors on the streets of New York. New York City’s streets are infamous for doubling as the world’s favorite runways and catwalks. Unknown to a young Barth, these sights would influence him in years to come. Barth admits that he wasn’t initially a “fashion guy”. Like every other New Yorker, he loved to look good. He appreciated designs that were not common but didn’t see a future in that industry. Barth was a designer at heart, but of a different kind. His passion layed in creating huge spaces. Barth wanted to design buildings. After graduating from Howard University with a degree in architecture Barth was excited to affix his creations on boulevards and blocks across the globe. He however grew disenchanted when he realized that most developers were not so much interested in the creative or the aesthetically pleasing, but in simply maximizing profit from square buildings.
    Barth knew that there had to be some other way to express the myriad of ideas floating around in his mind. After some research he came to realize that legendary fashion designers such as Coco Chanel, Tom Ford and Virgil Abloh all had architectural backgrounds. This was the fuel that Barth needed. He flew to Europe and explored the fashion scene. From fashion houses to fashion shows, Barth was inspired and there was no turning back. He returned to the US and thus B Gold NYC was born.
    After years of designing and promoting his brand, several celebrities and high-profile individuals started to take notice and wear his pieces. That recognition led to him being selected for HBO Max’s “The Hype”; a street wear competition series that highlights the top tier of street wear designers. Barth as you would imagine emerged victorious.
    Equipped with that title, incredible designs, his wit and cleverness, an unmatched work ethic and a vision for creating stunning garments Barth has only just begun.
    This is the story… thus far… of Barth of B Gold NYC

    Episode 70: The Honourable Perin Bradley

    Episode 70: The Honourable Perin Bradley

    This episode is dedicated to two of the most kind, loving, intelligent, creative and humorous souls that the world lost within the past decade. Erika Cannegeiter was a dear friend to me and this episode’s guest the Honorable Perin Bradley. Kareem Bradley was a very very close friend. To say I miss his presence is an understatement. While I miss him as a friend, my guest misses him as his brother.
    To Erykah and Kareem. We miss you both. The times we spent together coupled with the impact you had on our lives are forever etched in our minds and hearts.
    The Honourable Perin Bradley grew up in a tight knit village on the tiny Caribbean Island Anguilla. He admits that as a teen, he really had no clue what he wanted to do with his life. It was his mother’s constant guidance, persistence and prayers coupled with visits to his neighbor’s vast library that sparked young Perin’s imagination and showed him that there was so much more to aspire to.
    A few years went by and he found himself working at a local bank, driving a cool classic car and dating a wonderful young lady. What more could he want? Though that combination of spoils may have been enough for some, Perin wanted more. With the encouragement of his mother and some friends, he decided to attend Washington DC’s Howard University.
    Perin’s tenure at university unlocked new experiences, perspectives and knowledge. He credits those days for playing a significant part in shaping the man he is today.
    A consummate professional, he has served his island in several capacities, not only teaching but more importantly learning along the way. Perin, is sharp as a whip, witty and possess among other subjects a great knowledge of world politics, economics, finance and well… reggae music. He is one of the most interesting persons you can converse with.
    Today, he is the Deputy Governor of his island. Amid challenges he holds his head high and continues to do his best for the people of Anguilla.
    This is the story… thus far… Of the Honourable Perin Bradley
