Why I have opened the window!

Amerykah has turned a corner and we should all turn with it. I have thoughts ideas and suggestions but I also have patience and desire for us to be whole and one. I have been speaking a lot lately of the human condition and the generations of Black Americans. i will entertain any and all conversation as long as we can be respectful and grown up. Let the healing begin......

Tuesdays Invitation!




Allison Janney was born and raised in Dayton, Ohio. She is an actress best known as C. J. Cregg on the TV show “The West Wing”

For me the measuring stick of how well can you act means I need to see you in more than one role, often 2 or 3. I first noticed Allison in the movie “Primary Colors” a tongue in cheek off the cuff unofficial biography of Bill Clinton’s road to the White House. The part was small and I think she had two minutes of air time if that much but she stood out. Then came the West Wing, where she was far and away my favorite of the regular cast. But it was her role as “Loretta” a hard drinking woman of loose morals in the mocumentary “Drop Dead Gorgeous” that let me know she was truly diverse. She has sense shown up in a number of movie roles including lending her voice to the animated “Finding Nemo”


So Allison Janney., please accept this invitation to the Dinner party of the year. Your opinion, your diversity, and your self depreciating humor are more than welcome!
