Saving Grace: Tyrese

Tyson Gibson first came on the scene in 1994 as a passionate teen singing his heart out on the back of a bus in a Coca-Cola commercial. Since then, his career has remained steady in both music and film, with the 36-year-old Watts native becoming one of the few musicians who has been able to succeed in both.

Since taking on his first big screen role in 2001 with John Singleton’s “Baby Boy,” Gibson has appeared in some of the biggest movies in the last two decades including “2 Fast, 2 Furious,” “Four Brothers,” “Annapolis,” “Death Race” and the “Transformers” franchise.

Why Low Voter Turnout Matters So Much to Minorities? (& How Reversing Turnout Rates Could Alter The Political Landscape)

This year marks the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King’s Jr.’s historic 1965 march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama, in which hundreds of African Americans sacrificed their lives so that the next generation would be able to exercise their fundamental rights to vote. But with less than 10% of eligible voters casting ballots at Los Angeles polls last month, coupled with even abysmally lower voter turnout among minorities, it has raised fresh concerns on whether African Americans today fully appreciate the accomplishments of the civil rights movement.

From The Pulpit: of First New Christian Fellowship Baptist Church -- “The Historic Paradox of Black Religion”

When the Lord said, “I have observed the misery of my people who are in Egypt; I have heard their cry on account of their taskmasters. Indeed, I know their sufferings, and I have come down to deliver them from the Egyptians, and them to bring them up out of that land to a good and broad land, a land flowing with milk and honey, to the country of the Cananites, the Hittites, the Amorites , the Perizzites, the Hivites and the Jebusites. (Exodus 3.7-8 NRSV)

Mo’Nique Is Blackballed In Hollywood

Director Lee Daniels recently informed actress/comedienne Mo’Nique that she has been blackballed in Hollywood for “not playing the game.” “I got a phone call from Lee Daniels maybe six or seven months ago,” Mo’Nique said. “And he said to me, ‘Mo’Nique, you’ve been blackballed.’ And I said, ‘I’ve been blackballed? Why have I been blackballed?’ And he said, ‘Because you didn’t play the game.’”
