Indiegogo Finishing Funds Campaign

What’s goin’ on, People?  As you know, we are in the middle of our Indiegogo Finishing Funds Campaign for the film version of Water In A Broken Glass.  Our goal is to raise $45,000, most of the money will go to paying the wonderful cast and crew who worked on this film.  So far we’ve raised 10% of our goal, $4,375.  We have about two weeks to go.  I know that we will get the funds we need to bring Water In A Broken Glass to the big screen.  The premiere is set for Thursday, March 1, 2018 at the Senator Theater in Baltimore City at 7 pm.  It’s going to be a wonderful event.  To help support the film, Click the Link and Pick A Perk.  It’s that easy.

Wyzae Crankfield

Anyone who knows me knows that I love horror books and movies.  I blame it on my mother, who used to read Stephen King novels to her children when we were small.  One of the things I love most about horror are zombies.  I love watching zombie movies.  Don’t ask me why.  It’s just fun to watch.  So, you know I love The Walking Dead.  It is by far my favorite television show.

Recently, I had the fantastic opportunity to meet a guy by the name of Zomb-G, also known as Wyzae Crankfield.  And guess what.  He’s a zombie!  Yep!  And he’s from Baltimore.  So you know I had to interview him for This Is Baltimore, Too.  Wyzae Zomb-G is a very entertaining and interesting dude.  Check him out, and you will find that he is also very intelligent and inspiring.  You know that’s how we do at This Is Baltimore, Too.  So, check out his story and See What’s Good In Your Baltimore Neighborhood.

 

Etosha Bakari

This Is Baltimore, Too had the pleasure of interviewing Etosha Bakari.  She is wife, mother, track coach, and just a wonderful person.  Please check out her story.  You will not be disappointed.

This episode also features visual artist Randall Gornowich.  He does something very creative with balls from sweet gum trees.

Take a few minutes to become acquainted with these two very inspirational people from Baltimore.

Karen Collins’ Miniatures

While writing In The Mirror, I searched for African Americans who collected miniature dollhouses and I stumbled upon Karen Collins.  What a pleasure it was to find her work.  The stories she tells with her shadow boxes are astonishing.  I especially love the story she tells about Zora Neale Hurston.

When I found Ms. Collins’ work, I knew I had to include it in In The Mirror and fictionally bring her exhibit to Baltimore for Jasmine to see.  It works extremely well in the novel.

If you haven’t seen Ms. Collins’ work, please check her out.  You will be amazed.
