As I list my Top-10 for 2009, find there were not of albums I really loved. Maybe I missed a few, or were we just so saturated in 2008 that a lot of the good music from then just carried over into to last year. In any case, here are my favorites…
The Museum of UnCut Funk has acquired the latest stamps from the United States Post Office Black Heritage Series, the Distinguished Soldiers stamp featuring Doris Miller and the Anna Julia Cooper stamp.
If you want to ease the minds of film fans about a remake you’re working on, just compare it to Ocean’s 11. That’s what Will Smith did back in 2002 when his production company bought the rights to Sidney Poitier’s Uptown Saturday Night with plans to do an all-star Black update on the 1974 classic that originally paired up Poitier and Bill Cosby.
Lt Uhura was the first positive Black character from a TV series to appear as that character in a Saturday morning cartoon series.
George Clinton walked the red carpet at the 52nd Annual Grammy Awards for 2010. The living legend talked about his new album with fellow funk-a-teer Sly Stone. The dynamic duo are hoping the new CD is released this year, and Clinton announced that Stone recently got certain rights back to his classic catalog of music. Clinton stressed the importance of supporting the people that are devastated in Haiti and how he wants to do all he can to help them.
