In the Midnight Hour - Conversations

Fam, please TUNE IN to see Monice on "In the Midnight Hour - Conversations" for the important conversation of how art and financial empowerment are KEY to our future as a community.

The topic of conversation is George Floyd. The issue at hand is racism.

From New Zealand to Paris, from Australia to Berlin, from London to Iran, the George Floyd story is global. People all over the world have something to say. It is as though the global awakening will leave nothing in its wake and no stone unturned.

Last week Friday we learned that just one officer, Derek Chauvin, had been arrested. Since then, at the time of writing, the other 3 officers have been arrested and charged with aiding and abetting murder.

On this week's episode, we look at how we can empower ourselves as a community and move forward. We are our own rescue. One of the key ways is through financial empowerment. Another powerful means is that of art and culture.

Helping us to have the conversation is Hollywood Screenwriter and Filmmaker, Monice Mitchell Simms, author of Address: House of Corrections.

Monice believes her art must be about so much more than entertainment. We look at the role of art and culture at this time. Through her role in media she brushed shoulders with a much loved Minnesotan, Prince Rogers Nelson. He was an outspoken proponent of Black Lives Matters. We ponder what he would be saying and doing at this time.

Also with us is Canadian Financial Strategist Nechelle Bartley. Nechelle will help us nail down our money basics and our financial literary. As business owners and entrepreneurs, Nechelle will give us the keys to make our businesses thrive.

Host: Dr Patricia Benjamin
Co-presenters: Carolyn Morris-Walker, Canada; Chrys-Ann Ambose, Antigua; Rebecca Williams, UK.

Fam, we invite you to listen to our scripted podcast Address: House of Corrections to support a great cause.

Fam, we invite you to listen to our scripted podcast Address: House of Corrections to support a great cause.

Fam, as I watch us protest all around the country and the world about the police murdering George Floyd, I’ve been overwhelmed, angry, sad…
I’ve posted, tweeted, shared. And now I’m inspired to do more to signal-boost another systematic racist issue destroying our community.
Inspired by my late grandmother’s life, my scripted podcast Address: House of Corrections tells the story of Merry Paine, a strong Black woman who is a daughter, a mother and an ex-convict. National Bail Out - a Black led, Black centered collective - fights to dismantle mass incarceration that snares Black women like my grandmother and Merry. And I am committed to continue my work as a WriteGirl writing teacher in prisons to support them.
So, for the next 8 DAYS and 46 MINUTES, I pledge to donate $1 to National Bail Out for every person who SHARES our #AddressHouseofCorrections scripted podcast on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook. And I ask you to match my donation here : https://secure.actblue.com/donate/freeblackmamas2020
Please LISTEN AND SHARE https://bit.ly/AHConApple and help me help National Bail Out, Fam. They need our help now more than ever!

#IAmNotMyHair
#BeyondtheHeadlines

Detroit native Monice Mitchell Simms, a filmmaker, author and poet joins the show this week to discuss natural hair, an issue that's been brewing for a while now. Whether it was the wrestler in New Jersey who was given 90 seconds to cut off his locs to several states passing legislation making it illegal to discriminate folks for their hair, styles of African American men and women have been in the forefront in recent months.

Funny. I used to read the trades about projects getting made and l'd enviously ask, "How'd they do that?"

Now, I read the trades about projects getting made and I strategically ask, "Who's producing it?"

#AboutLastNight...I am so GRATEFUL right now.

Fam, you know how folks talk about turning points? Those pivotal moments when your life shifts into a new gear?

Well, that happened for me last night when I gave the most important pitch of my career (so far) as my final in the Producers Guild of America Diversity Master Workshop. Just the fact that my shy tail was able to do it is miracle enough. LOL!

But the true gift is the entire experience I've had in this program. The skills I've learned. The mentors and friends I've gained. The growth I feel.

I'm so grateful that I am now READY to not only produce my feature Sacked, but I'm also excited to get my other current projects Not Real Lee - The Movie and #GrowingUpNikki done, too!

Thank you so much Sasheen Artis and Matt Johnson for accepting me into the fold and partnering me with Brian McLaughlin and Susan Dynner, the best mentors in the world!

I'm about to go out in these Hollywood streets and make yaw proud. I promise! #SACKED #WhoIsMonice #GoGetHer
