The comedy Single Entry by popular Jamaican writer Aston Cooke, though set in a Jamaican context is one that many an immigrant can readily identify with.

Single Entry examines the lives of two working class Jamaican women who are hell-bent on going to New York City to visit a relative; they hope to obtain even a single entry visa and once they enter the country, to never return.

Jamaicans’ obsession with U.S. residence can be traced to the 1940s, when many people, mostly from rural parishes, went to Florida for a farm work program. This production in particular, tells how in some not so pretty ways, how the struggle to attain the American dream can be a difficult one especially for illegal immigrants.

Doctor Shares Great Insights On Aging Gracefully With Mental Stability Practices


Elizabeth City, NC  -- Fifty years ago, former Elizabeth City State College (ECSC) 1967-1968 student council president Charles Singleton was very active in the aftermath of King's assassination, presenting two speeches that were called "Stay the Course" and "The Cross of Freedom."

Now, Dr. Singleton is writing about one of the upcoming senior class table topics for discussion during the celebration of their 50th Golden Class Reunion: "Memory, Mobility and Aging". This important issue will be addressed during Elizabeth City State College's Annual Homecoming Weekend, October 26-28, 2018.


Dr. Singleton comments, "Perhaps, it's just me thinking! And, saying out loudly, aging or growing old is indeed an incredible daily life's challenge, with declining benefits, every twenty-four-seven. Especially, when the 'Good Book' reminds all of us at Psalms 90:10 (KJV) that living to an attainable age of 70 years of age, or three scores and ten, is quite a remarkable accomplishment, and that we could pass away."

Respectfully, following the untimely passing of celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain, age 61, June 8, 2018, and American fashion designer Kate Spade, age 55, June 5, 2018, consider publishing "Memory Stability Practices for an Aging Generation" to help and possibly prevent suicidal behaviors, related to one's depressive feelings and other at-risk mental conflicts. Recently, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Atlanta, GA, suicides among many ages, genders, ethnicities and races are increasing nationally; especially, in rural areas of the United states of America.

New Documentary Human Zoos Sheds Light On The Ugly History Of Racism In Science

Seattle, WA  -- In the early 1900s, thousands of indigenous peoples were put on public display in America. Often touted as "missing links" between man and apes, these native peoples were demeaned, harassed, and used as props to promote Social Darwinism and scientific racism. Now a new award-winning documentary tells their heartbreaking story. It is called Human Zoos.

"Too often people think that ideas don’t matter," says Dr. John West, the director and writer of the film. "Human Zoos shows otherwise, investigating how false ideas about science can lead to false ideas about our fellow human beings. The impact of these false ideas on human lives can be devastating."

The Oregon Documentary Film Festival calls Human Zoos "a racially charged story that will mesmerize you... You have to see it to believe it, and then wonder why they didn't teach you this chapter in history class."
