The Next 100!! 

Honored to be co-headlining as well as performing with the ALMIGHTY FUNKSTER, brother Amp Fiddler this coming Sunday at Cliff Bell's for Chris Campbell & The Progressive Underground's, "The Next 100" Celebration". This is NOT an event to be missed. 7p.

See you there!!


In the spirit of the famed Cafe Mahogany that once stood in Detroit, we bring you the resurgence of the energy that once went along with the venue that closed it's doors some years ago. It was a home for poets, students, everyday Detroiters and professionals to meet up on a common ground. It was a coffee shop, a stage, a HOME. From our cities greats to internationally known stars, Mahogany held a million beautiful moments. Come be a part of the Mahogany family and experience the fun!

Hosted by Joel Fluent Greene (3 year host at Mahogany) and featuring live music by the Mike Monford Trio, the evening will feature some of the best talent our city has to offer. Poetry will blend seamlessly with music and art will be everywhere.

Local favorites in spoken word and live music, out of town guests, surprise performers and a Detroit based vendors marketplace are just a few of the highlights. There will also be a full bar and plenty of seating. What more could you want? SEE YOU THERE!

Michiagn Chronicle 40 Under 40 Award!! 

It brings me great pleasure to share with you all that I, along with 39 others received an award this year from the Michigan Chronicle to celebrate 40 African-American individuals that are leaders in their respective fields. So many people reached out to congratulate me and a lot of people reached out to share with me that I was an inspiration to them.

I appreciate all of the love and support and I'm so glad that I'm making my family and others proud. Thanks, everyone!! To know that I'm inspiring others to follow their dreams in spite of the many obstacles we face in life is inspiring to me as well. Will continue to do my very best. Congratulations to all the honorees.

Always push forward in love!!
