In this moment of profound reckoning for our country, I'm stunned by having witnessed so brazenly the ongoing consequences of whiteness being weaponized against Black bodies. I grieve for the Black lives taken from us: George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and many others. I'm also pained by....

Going Live tonight!! New Short film filmed in Brooklyn!!! 8 pm on Youtube, click the link and set the reminder!!
I own a hemp CBD website Ultimate CBD Warehouse, and I can't advertise on Facebook because Facebook has decided Hemp CBD is something bad and they need to protect people. But interestingly on CBS this Morning Mark Zuckerburg states people can make their own decisions on what is true or not in political ads and ALLOWS FAKE INFORMATION to be boosted for money. But I can't post a research document from the National Institute of Health about Hemp CBD benefits because Facebook thinks it promotes drug use and is harmful to society. My question is why are people smart enough to determine truth and lies in politics but not smart enough to read documented scientific research to make a decision about what they use in their life. I have previously submitted all documents to validate who I am to run political ads but since Facebook says I violated policy I can't advertise anymore. I ran the same ads I received in my news feed from other CBD companies and I get denied yet I continue to receive the same CBD ads from other companies. When I appeal to Facebook they say too bad, and won't even allow an appeal. It seems like censorship, large companies can post and run ads but not the little business owner. So Thank you FACEBOOK for CENSORING MY LIFE!
Join BRIC's Black Box Filmmaking class! Apply at www.bricartsmedia.org/blackbox We are looking for New York-based students, filmmakers, writers, and theatre directors to participate in an experimental class that explores theatre, film, and collaborative filmmaking. We’ll solicit and choose several short scripts of up to 10 minutes in length from New York-based screenwriters and playwrights. Next, we will select 12 participants to become the producers, cinematographers, sound engineers, and editors to create a film based on this short script. With the close guidance of film and theatre artists, participants will refine and shape each script into a compelling and unique film piece that only BRIC can deliver.
Awesome. We've So Much Unsaid That It's Being Forgotten with Each Generation.
Disappointed that we found this station tonight by mistake and there was talk tonight of “getting pussy”. In this year of all years why would anyone think this is an acceptable way of referring to women? I’m more than disappointed, I’m disgusted.
