In the meantime, Supa Nova Slom is currently in the states to help celebrate the 60th birthday of his mother, international best-selling author and holistic specialist, Queen Afua. On August 24, noon-6 pm, at the Nicholas Bookstore in Brooklyn, NY, mother and son will be honored for their service in the wellness field.
Another birthday celebration occurred last week at Preserve 24 for Mike Muse, the one-man conduit for all things politics and pop culture. Affectionately known as “Obama's Million Dollar Baby,” Muse enjoyed a break from his political fundraising campaign for New Jersey Senate hopeful, Cory Booker. Swaying to the spins of DJ MOS were a bevy of wall street executives, restaurateurs and entertainment industry socialites, including MTV's Sway Calloway, celebrity publicist Tasha Stoute, TV Personality, Kwame Jackson and STEM University CEO, Andrea Peterson.
This Saturday there is no greater celebration than the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington. The event, led by Rev. Al Sharpton and Martin Luther King III, hopes to honor the legacy of Dr. King’s 1963 speech, “I Have a Dream” by galvanizing the community around initiatives to “realize the dream” on social justice issues such as employment, economic empowerment, women’s rights, LGBT equality and criminal justice issues including a call to reform the Stand Your Ground laws.
While Musiq Soulchild is realizing his dream of expanding his musical offerings, others are still waiting for Dr. King’s dream to come true.
