New Photo Documentary is Released, THE OBAMA LEGACY: A WE WRITE OF THE GREATEST AMERICAN PRESIDENCY
by BWW News Desk - Jan 6, 2017

Like many of his friends, Walt Goodridge fears the American media won't be fair or balanced when recognizing and documenting the historical significance and long-term impact of Barack Obama's two-terms as president. Goodridge, however, did something about it, and has crowdfunded and published a unique 'photo documentary' entitled The Obama Legacy: A We-Write of the Greatest American Presidency. 'After eight years, much of what people now feel about the Obama presidency isn't the result of an objective assessment of his accomplishments,' explains Goodridge, founder of the Obama Legacy We-Write Book Project. 'It's media spin in a country that, historically, has fallen short when it comes to humanizing men and women of color and glorifying their achievements. Internationally, Obama is recognized as one of the great statesmen-with poise, grace, and intelligence unmatched in modern American politics. Domestically, he's had major successes that have been overlooked or under-reported for various reasons. As his term ends, we can't allow pundits, politicians or Hollywood producers to determine how we and our children remember this particular presidency. We need to take pre-emptive action to reclaim and control the dialogue.' To those who claim disappointment with Obama's presidency, Goodridge, in the book's introduction, reminds them that despite previous presidents all having the power to do soand despite conspired obstruction that began on the night of his electionObama passed the first health care reform in the nation's history, advocated gay marriage rights, made equal pay for women the law, appointed multiple female supreme court justices, welcomed gays to the military and improved US-Cuba and US-Japan relations. He oversaw the demise of Osama Bin Laden, Iraq troop withdrawal and voted against the Keystone Pipeline, and quite notably, commuted 1,324 harsh sentencesmore than the previous 11 presidents combined. Goodridge offers these achievements as examples of what he calls 'real progress'-legislation and actions that counter the existing effects of this nation's foundation of white supremacy, institutionalized racism, fanatic nationalism, male sexism, religious extremism and corporate capitalism, thateven in light of the negatives (drone strikes, deportations, corporate wrist slaps) endure as hallmarks of one of the nation's greatest presidencies. Goodridge hopes the book will appeal to younger readers as well and includes 'legacy rhymes' of key Milestones. Accompanying the iconic photo of Obama's first official act, he writes 'The first act that Obama signed / Was January 29, 2009 / And now in Lilly's name we say / With equal work comes equal pay.' 'Imagine your child knowing not only when 'Columbus sailed the ocean blue,' but also when the nation's first African American president signed the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act!' he opines. According to Goodridge, 'We've been witness to a great President whose legacy will ultimately be recognized as unmatched in US history, but you can't tune in to the six o'clock news to hear those words. We have to say them ourselves and to our children. The proof is in the public record. Don't wait for the media re-write, make this a history WE write!' The Obama Legacy: A We-Write of the Greatest American Presidency is a full color, 150-page, 365-photo record of Obama's bill signings, town halls, tv appearances, news conferences, state of the union addresses, presidential firsts, groundbreaking nominations, baby whispering, and international trips and rockstar reception abroad in bold, photographs and behind the scenes commentary starting with 2007's 'Obamania' phenomenon.

Author of 'Blue Blue Sea Finds His Cape' Donates Copies of Book to Children's Books on Wheels
by BWW News Desk - Jan 16, 2017

Miranda N. Prather, author of 'Blue Blue Sea Finds His Cape,' donates copies of the popular children's book to Children's Books on Wheels and Reach out and Read at Boston Children's Primary Care Clinic. Both organizations seek to provide books to children, the primary audience of Blue Blue Sea Finds His Cape. In particular, Prather hopes that the copies to children that are facing challenging circumstances in their own lives will give them comfort and strength through the inspirational story. 'Blue Blue Sea Finds His Cape,' published by Shoofly View, tells the life story of a blue-collar racehorse who overcame a devastating illness to survive and inspire thousands around the globe who were facing their own struggles and illnesses. The book features playful writing and delightful pictures, by Kentucky artist Hayley Mullins, that bring the tale of Blue Blue Sea to life. Blue Blue Sea was no American Pharaoh, but he became a hero just the same. To learn more and follow Blue Blue Sea's world visit: https://www.facebook.com/BlueBlueSeaOTTB. Miranda N. Prather was born in Texas and grew up in Mississippi, Louisiana and Kentucky. The first horse she recalls following was Seattle Slew, who was born the same year she was, but it was Alydar that was her first horse racing love (and Blue Blue Sea's great-grandsire). During her time in Kentucky, she took horseback riding lessons and owned an off-track Thoroughbred named Beble. Founded in 2004, Children's Books on Wheels' mission is to promote reading in rural communities and urban communities by providing books to students and their families. Located in Montgomery County, Texas, has donated thousands of books to children, churches and other non-profits. They serve a population that sees 75% of people at or below poverty level. A national program, Reach out and Read promotes school readiness and early literacy. The program helps to accomplish these goals by providing children books at different age Milestones through their primary care physician; training to doctor's and nurses to be able to impress upon parents the importance of literacy and by having volunteers in waiting rooms to read to children and demonstrate the importance of reading. This model has been an important addition to the Boston Children's Primary Care Clinic, which has provided nearly a million books to children. Shoofly View seeks to give authors honest feedback, and if an author presents a well-written, interesting book, the chance at publication. In late 2015, they published 'Blue Blue Sea Finds His Cape,' their first book. They are currently looking at other book projects and plan an online journal to highlight the best in writing, art and photography. Shoo-Fly View Publications (more...)

BWW Review: Yehuda Hyman and The Mystical Feet Company Explore Grief in The Mar Vista, An Ambitious Jewish Historical Drama
by Victoria Ordin - Dec 15, 2016

Nothing in the press release prepared me for the power and beauty of THE MAR VISTA, an ambitious autobiographical theater-dance piece by Brooklyn-based Yehuda Hyman which ranges over four countries on two continents in 90 years. This is no one's fault (though a tissue alert would have been nice), as the collaboration between Hyman's Mystical Feet Company and LABA: The Laboratory of Jewish Culture does not lend itself to neat description. A brief review of Hyman's artistic background--choreographer, playwright, poet, translator of poetry, and teacher of dance at Sarah Lawrence (from which he earned his M.F.A), Princeton, NYU, Barnard, and USC, among others-would best, perhaps, indicate the play's epic sweep, both emotionally and historically.
