Earlier this week my friend and fellow artist, Tiff Massey dropped a song titled "Detroit is Black" a collaboration with Dirt tech extraordinaire Jeedo X.  Check out her Kresge Arts Fellow video and some of the most beautiful people under the sun. 


Saturday January 30, 2016 at Cass Cafe' Sydney G James, Lamar Landers and Bakpak Durden will unveil "Trivium",  a group exhibition showcasing these artists amazing work. Be it drawing, painting, photography or mixed media, I am excited to see what trio brilliant has cooked up.  

Friday January 29, 2016 at 6pm Rashaun Rucker presents a solo exhibition of drawing and print making at Marygrove College.  If the work Ruck has been producing over the last year is any indication of the work in this exhibition, then I am sure he will be the talk of the town. 

Congrats to the brilliant Taylor Renee Aldridge and Jessica Lynne for their write up in the creators project for ARTS.BLACK.  For those rare moments when I seek a second opinion concerning the arts, ARTS.BLACK is where I go to get familiar.  Get familiar!  


Dennis Nawrocki at Essay'd wrote a lovely piece about my art practice, community work and ideas on being an artist.  When I am interviewed, I never know how these things are going to turn out.  I think it turned out brilliant and honest.

Also I am excited to be invited to Baltimore, on MLK Day, to participate in the "Men of Courage" forum sponsored by Ford.  MOC is a forum in which black men who seek to change the perception of black men in America come together to share their experiences, values and insight as we form a common narrative and movement forward.  Supreme!
