A Radical Post-Bernie Cooperative Multicultural Immigrant Manifesto
Huffington Post - 3 months
In midtown Manhattan, I find myself in a busy beer hall full of holiday revelers. From off in the back, a raucous and cacophonous cheer suddenly rises up from a group of rabble rousers. "Bernie!" they yell, tipping their large mugs in honor of Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, a politician who galvanized many during his failed bid to capture the Democratic nomination. But this party, which is a farewell "swan song" of sorts, is the last of its kind to bring together long-time political veterans of "Team Bernie." There's an air of nostalgia in the room, but also a degree of uncertainty since it's by no means clear what lies ahead for the local activist set. Earlier in the day, some party revelers had attended a conference held by New York Progressive Action Network, a statewide group which is trying to find its political footing. Does NYPAN have "legs," as a possible successor network to the Bernie Sanders campaign, or will it come and go like many other New York groups on the lib ...

Almost Christmas
Huffington Post - 4 months
Watching this humorous film is like getting a funny Christmas card that makes you laugh uncontrollably as it warms you heart. This ode to the joy and angst people feel as their family reconvenes for the certain chaos, gluttony and joy during Christmas, is a nice way to start the holiday season. It's a very entertaining stocking stuffer. (Photo courtesy of Universal Pictures) The cast of the holiday film Almost Christmas. Under writer/director David E. Talbert's (First Sunday) guidance you know there will be equal parts comedy and inspirational message. Toss in producer Will Packer's (Think Like a Man) sensibility and you can pile on the silliness and bawdy humor. What's on view is a raucous comedy that feels almost TV sitcommish. It's seasoned with enough soap opera-ish drama to make you laugh at the characters, be astonished by their schemes and heartened by the way they resolve their problems. Walter Meyers (Danny Glover, The Color Purple), the successful owner of severa ...

Florida's Fossil Fuels Are Using Communities Of Color As Political Props
Huffington Post - 5 months
An explosive new leak has the potential to shift the outcome of the vote in Florida on November 8. But this October surprise concerns an issue that has garnered scant election-season press coverage: climate change. A recent exposé by the Miami Herald/Times found that big utilities and fossil-fuel interests have been pulling a fast one on Florida voters, deploying “the language of promoting solar” in order to sell a ballot measure that would actually threaten the solar industry. Caught on a leaked tape at a right-wing policy convention, an industry insider recommended this “incredibly savvy maneuver” nationwide against solar advocates to “completely negate anything they would try to do either legislatively or constitutionally down the road.” After all, he noted, “solar polls very well.” Amendment 1, which is supposedly about “Rights of Electricity Consumers Regarding Solar Energy Choice,” actually allows utility companies to impose new charges on solar customers ― the same ki ...

Harry Belafonte Taps Influencers For Powerful Police Brutality PSA
Huffington Post - 5 months
Harry Belafonte is continuing his pursuit for civil rights in America by addressing police brutality in a new short film titled, “Against The Wall.” In association with Belafonte’s social justice organization Sankofa.org, the PSA features a list of notable figures ― including actor Michael B. Jordan, Danny Glover, Van Jones and Marc Lamont Hill to name a few ― with their hands up against concrete as actual news audio from police related killings plays in the background. Belafonte is heard in the beginning of the video expressing his feelings on the recent uptick in nationwide police violence against people of color. “You cannot just go about if it’s once or twice, you can say it’s an accident and a coincidence,” he said. “But when you have a large population of murdered young men in the streets of America, and they’re all black or of African American descent, think there’s somebody sending us a message and we should respond to that message. “ The PSA, come ...

Movie Review: <i>Dirty Grandpa</i>... Don't Walk Out!
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Oh, my! Why is De Niro working so much and choosing mediocrity like Dirty Grandpa? At times he is wildly funny in a film that has moments of greatness surrounded by banal attempts to get laughs. The beginning of the film is a set up and tedious in its struggle to be outrageous. The concept of an old man wanting to "get laid" and go out with a bang before the bell tolls, is a funny one. But what happened to the execution? The plot is as follows: De Niro's grandson, Zac Efron, is about to marry an uptight socially conscious Julianne Hough. Dick Kelly (De Niro) whose wife just has died, is opposed to the wedding and creates a diversion by asking Jason (Zac Efron) to drive him to Florida to visit an old friend Stinky, (Danny Glover). About twenty minutes into this film, Stinky who is attached to an IV while watching porno films in a nursing home, gives a shot of energy that has been lacking. Glover is wickedly funny and lights up the screen in too small a part. Up to this momen ...

Theater: <i>Once Upon</i> a Fairy Tale; <i>Color Purple</i> Glows
Huffington Post - over 1 year
ONCE UPON A MATTRESS ** 1/2 out of **** ABRON ARTS CENTER THE COLOR PURPLE ** 1/2 out of **** BERNARD B. JACOBS THEATRE Both of these musicals have a lot in common. Both are pretty weak, with Purple especially weak in the score and Mattress weak in the book. But both are elevated by outstanding casts. We'll probably never see a better production of The Color Purple; this one is so good it almost tricks you into thinking the show itself is worthwhile. Mattress can be harmless fun with the right pros on board and the right attitude -- Transport Group's production happily has both. First, the little show that could. Once Upon A Mattress was a memorable success for composer Mary Rodgers. It takes the old fairy tale of "The Princess And The Pea" and expands that into pleasing entertainment. The show is so old school you might believe it's winkingly retro rather than just traditional down to its toes. Genially overstuffed, it has a solo showcase for a hoofer (a fleet, fit Cor ...

    Age 69
    In February 2016, Glover endorsed Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders for the Democratic presidential nomination.
    More Details Hide Details Glover was an outspoken critic of George W. Bush, calling him a known racist. "Yes, he's racist. We all knew that. As Texas's governor, Bush led a penitentiary system that executed more people than all the other U.S. states together. And most of the people who died were Afro-Americans or Hispanics." Glover's support of California Proposition 7 (2008) led him to use his voice in an automated phone call to generate support for the measure before the election. On the foreign policy of the Obama administration, Glover said: "I think the Obama administration has followed the same playbook, to a large extent, almost verbatim, as the Bush administration. I don't see anything different... On the domestic side, look here: What's so clear is that this country from the outset is projecting the interests of wealth and property. Look at the bailout of Wall Street. Why not the bailout of Main Street? He may be just a different face, and that face may happen to be black, and if it were Hillary Clinton, it would happen to be a woman. But what choices do they have within the structure?"
