My Friend Harold

Written by Thursday, October 16, 2014
On Friday, folks from L.A to Louisiana will say goodbye to Harold Hambrick, President of the Los Angeles Black Business Expo (LABBX). He is a hard act to follow. My “brother from another mother,” Harold and I were born on the same day, in the same hospital in New Orleans, but different years. We often celebrated our joint birthdays, played golf together, did business together and supported each other’s dreams. He was a real stand-up guy, who always wanted the best for everyone. A longtime friend and supporter of Inglewood Today, Harold was instrumental in driving new advertisers to our…

Turning The Corner

Written by Thursday, October 16, 2014
The economic recession is said to be nothing more now than a moment in American history. As Americans pick up the pieces of the homes they’ve lost, complete insulting personality tests to determine if they possess the IQ to push shopping carts around Wal-Mart parking lots, and extinguish their third and final extensions on unemployment benefits, the Boomers find themselves having to return to school and find roommates, while the Millennials find themselves choosing to…

Are You Feelin’ Blackish?

Written by Thursday, October 16, 2014
The new ABC comedy, “Blackish,” starring Anthony Anderson, Tracee Ellis Ross, and Laurence Fishburne premiered September 24th to mixed reviews. Now, I have a strict “third-time's-the-charm” rule when it comes to my entertainment. If I’m not feelin' a show by the third episode, that’s pretty much grounds for me to quit watching. Well, this week I saw the third episode of “Blackish” and I still can’t decide if I like it. Apparently, I’m not alone.…

The Price of a New City

Written by Thursday, October 09, 2014
Hold on Inglewood, things are about to get a little crazy. With everything starting up, seemingly at the same time, nerves may become rattled. But it will all be fine in the end. With the re-opened Fabulous Forum past the six-month mark, earning revenue for the City, and fast becoming a mecca for world-class entertainment (again!), there are new developments to keep our eyes on. Century Blvd., long in need of repaving, is on its way to being fixed, although it may not look that way at first. Streets are being torn up at Century Blvd. and Prairie Ave,, eastward…

Written by Thursday, October 09, 2014
On Sunday night (October 5) Raven-Symone was interviewed by Oprah for a special titled, "Where Are They Now?" which debuted on the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN). A lot of black people are mad about a comment Raven made regarding her identity. Oprah addresses the tweet Raven wrote over a year ago in support of the gay marriage act passing through the U.S. Supreme Court. The tweet reads, "I can finally get married! Yay government! So…

Written by Thursday, October 09, 2014
Street construction and the future of the old Daniel Freeman Hospital site were the main topics discussed at Tuesday’s council meeting. Resident Leroy Fisher wanted to know how the City “got around the covenant” that allowed the Daniel Freeman property to used to build condominiums instead. “Covenants apply to the parties involved. The City was not a part of the covenant. The City had no say in the sale and transfer of that property,” Mayor…

Red’s Flavor Table

Written by Thursday, October 09, 2014
Amongst a packed house and the likes of KJLH Radio and NBA Hall of Fame Legend Reggie Miller, I found myself in the heart of Louisiana this past Saturday as the community partook in the grand opening of the Flavor Table, a New Orleans style breakfast restaurant located at 2812 W Florence Avenue in Los Angeles. Hot plates swooshed by, folks carried smiles and good conversation, and music charged the air with good vibes, as…
