TBAAL’s Sept. 15, 2013 reading of the play, written by Christina Ham, was in partnership with Project 1 Voice.
I interviewed one of the actors, 12-year-old Terrance Dean Jr., and TBAAL Founder and President Curtis King, after the event. Below are audio excerpts:
Dean, who wants to perform on Broadway, is among 500 - 600 students who participated in TBAAL's Summer Youth Arts Institute, according to King.
This year's program ended with a performance of "Motown The Musical" and, of course, Dean was in the cast.
Regina's Personal Remembrances
Today marks my late mom's birthday, the first since she died in June. A friend, Monica Castañeda, who is a senior graphic designer, created this pictorial tribute to both my mom and my late Aunt Rosemary DeWalt, who influenced my creative pursuits. Auntie was a visual artist who sewed and could cook you underneath the table. Love ya'll!
