THANK YOU to Hubert Brandon who shared details about Voices of the Hill at the Cleveland Film Festival.
I’m EXCITED THE VOICES OF THE HILL has been selected to be screened at Greater Cleveland Urban Film Festival. Voices of the Hill” is a community oral history documentary that chronicles the history of Twinsburg Heights, a historically black segregated suburb in Northeast Ohio. This documentary is told through the eyes of area youth as they research, film, and interview elders in their community in order to learn and preserve a history before it is lost to dying industries, foreclosures, and gentrification. Students learn first-hand, the importance of banning together, self-advocacy, civic engagement and family as they capture the stories of their elders and document a history to bring their fractured community together.
Run Time: 113 min
Director: Carla L Carter-Bishop
Screening: 9/22 @ 1:00 pm
Thursday September 22, 2016 1:00pm – 2:00pm

As we say farewell to the Olympics in Rio, some amazing illustrations have been inspired by the athletes. One article in particular shows the power and strength of Positive Women.
11 AMAZING BODY-POSITIVE ILLUSTRATIONS OF MEXICAN OLYMPIC GYMNAST ALEXA MORENO
Mexican gymnast Alexa Moreno made headlines (and hashtags) during her matches last week in Rio. While she was trending at first for all of the wrong reasons (i.e. body-shaming trolls who did nothing but criticize her figure), the rest of the Twitter community came to her rescue and highlighted how talented she is.
“Gymastics is a sport for brave people,” she said in an interview with Americas Now on CCTV last month. “You need to be dedicated, have a strong will, and lots of persistency. I won’t stop until I have reached my goals.”

The Tough CEO . . . or (“Don’t Assume You Know Everything”)
To be certain that your primary exercise does not consist of “Jumping to Conclusions,” remember the story of The Tough CEO.
A large company, feeling it was time for a shakeup, hired a new CEO. This new boss was determined to rid the company of all slackers. On a tour of the facilities, the CEO noticed a guy leaning on a wall. The room was full of workers and he wanted to let them know that he meant business!
The new CEO walked up to the guy leaning against the wall and asked, “How much money do you make a week?”
A little surprised, the young fellow looked at him and replied, “I make $300.00 a week. Why?”
The CEO then handed the guy $1,200 in cash and screamed, “Here’s four weeks’ pay, now GET OUT and don’t come back.”
Feeling pretty good about himself, the CEO looked around the room and asked, “Does anyone want to tell me what that goof-off did here?”
From across the room came a voice . . .
“Pizza delivery guy from Domino’s.”
