The Black Owned fashion boutique boasts of high fashion that will "break necks not your pockets" so you know I had to pop in and see for myself. Co-owners Bettyna Theo...

Here's a special shout out to the most epic Black History Month I can remember in recent years.

So I've been on a major journey for the last few years of my life meeting & working with so many amazing artists. I've had the priviledge of being one of the Wives in Fela On Broadway, choreographed for Lauryn Hill, Jill Scott, Alison Hinds to name a few and performing regularly with the Chop An Quench Band. Come with me on my quest for glory!

The Soultry Speakeasy is a fine dining experience that highlights the prohibition era ‘Harlem Renaissance’ culture featuring a culinary pairing of food, wine & spirits reminiscent of the cultural, social, and artistic explosion that took place in Harlem in the 1920s thru mid-1930s. During this period New York City’s Harlem district was transformed into a fabled cultural center; inspiring a legendary creative movement...
