'A Cow Needs A Tail For More Than One Summer' Wins Apple Indie Book Award
by BWW News Desk - Sep 27, 2016

'A Cow Needs a Tail For More Than One Summer: Life Lessons From Mom' by Lolita Cummings Carson chosen as Medalist Winner in the General Nonfiction category of the 2015 New Apple Book Awards for Excellence in Independent Publishing. Book Synopsis 'A Cow Needs A Tail For More Than One Summer' is a fantastically funny collection of stories from the author's childhood, each revolving around a saying used by Cummings Carson's mother (as a rebuke, usually). This book started out as a gift from Cummings Carson to her mother, but quickly turned into an honest and hilarious look at the parent-child relationship. Cummings Carson gives us a look into family life: a mother's wisdom, a child's rebellious spirit, and the full-circle effect that comes with growing into parenthood yourself. About the Author Lolita Cummings Carson, an accredited member of the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA), earned a bachelor's degree in Communications from Western Michigan University and a master's degree in Communications from Eastern Michigan University. She is a sought after thought leader who connects serious social issues with the hilarious sayings in her book. Such topics cross all generations and audiences and include corporate social responsibility, effective parenting, financial literacy, healthy and peaceful living, personal responsibility and accountability, thoughtful decision-making, learning from mistakes, and more! When not writing, teaching or leading, Cummings Carson can be found biking or working out with her husband, Lamar Carson. Together, they are the parents of four grown children: Briana Hendrix, Jerry Hendrix II, Domonique Carson, and Daniel Carson.

BWW Review: BROWNSVILLE SONG (B-SIDE FOR TRAY) Sounds a Call for Justice and Healing at Theatre Alliance
by Derek Schwabe - Sep 22, 2016

'He was not.' A grieving grandmother repeatedly belts that powerful phrase across the audience from the opening scene of 'Brownsville Song (b-side for tray)'-an emphatic repudiation of the 10 second newsflash that has gutted the soul out of her dead grandson, Tray (Sideeq Heard). Another young, black life cut short on the jagged streets of Brooklyn's Brownsville neighborhood--same old story that flashes across TV screens and dots the local section of newspapers every day. But he, she insists, was not. Was not what? The phrase is never fully finished, but as 'Brownsville Song' plays on, you find yourself wondering less about what Tray wasn't, and reveling more in what he was. (more...)

Museum of the Moving Image to Host Theo Angelopoulos Retrospective in July
by BWW News Desk - Jun 24, 2016

Greece's most prominent film director of the post-1968 era, Theo Angelopoulos (1935–2012) was a master cinema stylist. His investigations into history and politics, tyranny and resistance, and spiritual anomie and emotional devastation place him on equal footing with filmmakers like Andrei Tarkovsky, Bernardo Bertolucci, and Wim Wenders. Today, at a time when Greece has struggled with impending economic collapse, and as the country's refugee crisis has worsened, with displaced populations fleeing war in the Middle East and massing on its borders, the themes of Angelopoulos's cinema are pressing once again. Museum of the Moving Image will present Eternity and History: The Cinema of Theo Angelopoulos, a complete retrospective of the director's career—the first in the United States in 25 years—from July 8 through 24, 2016. The retrospective will also be presented at the Harvard Film Archive in Cambridge, Massachusetts, from July 15 through August 22. The presentation of the retrospective at Museum of the Moving Image was made possible with support from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation and the Hellenic American Chamber of Commerce. (more...)
