Mall Manager at Northfield Square Mall Slurs Racist Remarks toward Local Restaurant, Grandma Kat’s What makes customers feel welcomed and valued? This is definitely a question that I can easily answer after being a guest multiple times at Grandma Kat’s, auniquerestaurant located in Northfield Square Mall, in Bourbonnais, Illinois. Terry Keigher, owner of Grandma Kat’s ensures that every customer feels like an honored guest, giving genuine, sincere attention to every single individual. My first encounter with Mr. Keigher occurred one day as my mother and I were shopping at Northfield Square Mall. We strolled by Grandma Kat’s and was immediately called out with a warm greeting and invited to a free bowl of Southwestern Soup and a tasty cold glass of Watermelon Lemonade. Not being pressed for time, we accepted his offer. As Mr. Keigher seated us, he was genuinely friendly, authentic, caring and made us feel like we were visiting him at his home, not at his workplace. The soup…

[Above Photos: Prime Minister Odinga, Tito Jackson & Ambassador Dr. Oranga] Tito Jackson: The Man Behind The Love, The Music, and Now The “Ambassador & Honorary Citizen to Kenya!”Featured Exclusive Interview with Tito Jackson by Elder Lee M Harris, Sr. It is very important that we as human beings understand that God has placed every living soul on this earth with a mission and a purpose. Some may feel that someone else’s or even their own reasons for being here are much greater or smaller than another. We sometimes find as we travel the up and down journeys of the world, that a gift or talent as a package deal has the same weight for all of us. A very young talented singing group of five young African American kids from Gary, Indiana, shocked the musical sound waves of the entire world before most kids figured out what they wanted to be in life. In the mid sixties, The Jackson Five, “Jackie, Tito, Jermaine,…

Music…The Heart And Soul of Terrell CarterInterviewed and written By Hector De La Rosa @11journ_list

“Music is my life’s passion. It is my first love,” reference the effervescent personality, extraordinary actor, and startling vocalist Terrell Carter.  “I look at entertainment like it is second nature to me.” For some, it takes time to discover their passion, pursue it, and hone their craft.  For Carter, he is a natural, a pro- a star is born.  

Though many artists conform to the standards of the music industry, Mr. Carter is one of few who refuse to compromise his ethics, value, and worth as an artist foremost Child of GOD wishing there were more artists that foster his mentality.  “I do not follow trends.”  He rebuffs the notion of “sounding like [the next] Trey Songz or J. Holiday.”  Preferably, “capture the essence of ‘soul’ that you would get out of the greats like Stevie Wonder and the distinctiveness of Michael Jackson at the height of his career.”  The powerhouse vocalist i…

CeCe Winans: I’m good, I’m good! EH: I understand the project you’re doing, “How Sweet the Sound” is something that’s been going on for a while. I would first of all like to talk with you for a moment about your role in this event.
CeCe: I’ve been involved with “How Sweet the Sound” for several years now. The first time they asked me, I was a judge for a few of the shows and I performed and really enjoyed it, as I felt they did it in a first class way.
It was a great chance to give choirs a platform of knowing that it was really the foundation of gospel music and gospel choirs. For the last three years I’ve been hosting / co-hosting with Donald Lawrence and had a great time doing that. This year I’m going back to judging and Yolanda is going to host the event.
EH: It’s my understanding that some of the smaller churches are being invited to this event now as well as the communi…

Tanay Jackson Continues the Jackson's Legacy
Eager, enthused and confident are only a few of the words that describe the natural talented, sexy and energetic Pop recording artist, Tanay Jackson. The strong-minded singer does not settle for less, as she rises to fame in a dominant recording industry. My conversation with the daughter of legendary member of The Jackson Five/The Jackson’s guitarist, Tito Jackson, is unforgettable, as her determination, passion and love for music will leave a special place in the heart of many of her fans and countless people around the world. Excited about the interview with Consciousness Magazine, Tanay exhales as she talks about the hurt she endured over the years from not having her father in her life. While growing up in NY and Maryland with her mother, there were many events that took place in her lifetime that were abnormal; however, Tanay grew to overcome these obstacles.

Mr. Marcus: The Interview Interviewed by Hector De La Rosa
Throughout history, African Americans are stereotyped with penalizing depictions that constructed a framework of mental marginalization: irresponsibility, violent tendencies, and criminals, unintelligent, profane, to sexually promiscuous and oversexed. However, I beg to differ with few celebrity encounters including The Man and famous porn star Mr. Marcus who carries himself as responsible, charismatic, respectful, humble, and an intelligent gentleman. Without condoning Mr. Marcus’ lifestyle or hustle, it is a pleasure of meeting someone who did become a statistic to crime and incarceration but a successful entrepreneur, author, foremost a survivor. This article sheds a distinct light of him that holds substance than a typical Q&A explicit content.  Mr. Marcus On…
