2SNYC Opera - Margaret Garner

Attended my second Opera of my life last night to see Margaret Garner. The story is of a slave who kills her children so they will not grow up in slavery.

2SGood week..

Great thing about NYC.

I went to the African Film Festival on Thursday supporting a friend and his movie which is called Death of 2 Sons.

Check it out: www.deathoftwosons.com

Also, I went to see the movie, Perfect Stranger. My friend is Halle Berry’s body part double. We were MAD because she was not credited in the film but she did get a CHECK from the movie.

I also was in Harlem for Bible study. So, this was a good and productive week! 7 years ago
