Audra McDonald Soars as the Legendary Billie Holiday
In a Q&A with The Root, the performer, who has just been nominated for a Tony Award, describes her apprehensiveness about and preparation for this extraordinary role.
By: Greg Thomas
Posted: May 1 2014 6:23 AM
Audra McDonald’s Tony nomination this week for Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role for her work in Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill isn’t a surprise to anyone who has seen her channel Billie Holiday. I did, closing my eyes during the performance, imagining that I was in Philadelphia in 1959 listening to Lady Day. This performance by McDonald—who is rightfully celebrated as one of our most accomplished contemporary stage and concert artists—captures Holiday’s style so well that it’s almost frightening.
In this interview, The Root peers into the creative process of a modern master, who, if she wins another Tony this year, will have received the most by any actor ever.
The Root: When and why did you decide to take on this role?
Audra McDonald: A very good friend of mine, who has also directed me in a few shows over the years, Lonnie Price, brought it up to me about two years ago. He said, “This is something we were going to do in London with Vanessa Williams, but that fell through and she’s got other commitments. Do you think it’s something that you might be interested in?”
I took a look at the script and said, “Wow, this looks incredibly difficult. And I don’t know if I can pull this off.” But I’m a sucker for a challenge, so I was like, OK.
TR: What looked difficult? What did you find so daunting?
AM: Because she’s such an iconic, historic character. If I played Harriet Tubman—who existed, but we don’t have a lot of record of how she sounded and how she spoke—I could interpret it my way. But with Billie Holiday, there’s so much historical documentation, video and audio. And she’s famous for, more than anything, her iconic sound. So I wasn’t sure if it was something I could find in my voice. That was the thing that scared me the most.
This is on my list of must-sees over the spring and the summer along with A Raisin in the Sun and After Midnight.
A Raisin Still in the Sun
100 Amazing Facts About the Negro: Beyond its star-studded Broadway revival, Lorraine Hansberry’s play remains relevant.
By: Henry Louis Gates Jr.
Posted: April 28 2014 4:00 AM
The sheer star power, including Denzel Washington in the lead role, lighting up the Broadway revival of Lorraine Hansberry’s Raisin in the Sun, 55 years after its original run at the Ethel Barrymore Theater, would no doubt delight Hansberry, and the play’s first director, legendary black Canadian Lloyd Richards. Yet beyond its mega-watt casting, the tale of a black Chicago family divided by money and competing dreams about how to spend it resonates on multiple levels for black America, remaining just as relevant for our community today as when it opened.
The play, which debuted just a year before the great year of African independence when no fewer than 17 former African colonies gained their independence, leaves no doubt about which character makes the better argument in the penultimate scene, during a debate over the degree of racial progress black people have made since slavery and what the future bodes for people throughout the African diaspora.
Were our people merely doomed to march in “one large circle, around and around,” as 20-year-old aspiring doctor Beneatha Younger bemoans upon learning that her big brother, Walter Lee Jr., has just thrown away their share of their late father’s life-insurance policy? Or was black history “a long line … that reaches into infinity,” as Beneatha’s Nigerian suitor, Joseph Asagai, counters, hoping to inspire her to marry him, move to the continent and take part in the decolonization movement then lifting the grip of European colonial rule in the late 1950s?
Seriously, D.L. Hughley, You’re Telling Columbus Short’s Wife to Shut Up?
Everyone’s innocent until proved guilty, but mocking a woman for reporting domestic abuse isn’t helping anyone.
By: Britni Danielle
Posted: April 30 2014 2:57 PM
I’m not sure what D.L. Hughley’s problem is with Columbus Short’s estranged wife, Tanee McCall-Short—or, in general, with women who have been subjected to domestic violence—but on a recent episode of his online radio show, the comedian had some raw advice for McCall-Short, who says she was attacked by Short: “Shut the f–k up.”
Excuse me, D.L.?
That’s pretty cold, to say the least, considering that she’s the mother of Short’s children, and he’s alleged to have held a knife to her throat.
Earlier this month, news broke that McCall-Short had filed for divorce and obtained a restraining order, saying that Short had threatened to kill her, and himself, during an argument. Although McCall-Short did not go public with the allegations, TMZ obtained the couple’s court documents and broke the story on its website.
Once the article was picked up by news outlets worldwide, everyone was talking about Short’s behavior—which reportedly included a bar fight in March, punching a man out during a pickup basketball game, and prior domestic incidents with his wife. After Short called in to the Tom Joyner Morning Show April 18 and gave a “bizarre” interview—and dropped the n-word—he was let go from his coveted Scandal gig.
It’s been a rough couple of months for the actor, but according to Hughley, Short’s estranged wife—whom he described as a “thirsty bitch” and a “ho”—should have kept her mouth shut about the alleged violence because going public was against her financial interests.
“I think that broad shouldn’t be telling all his business if she gone take him to court,” Hughley man-splained.
People have been ripping his ass apart.
Every since his ex divorced his ass years ago he has talked about black women like we are dogs. He is so bitter, dude needs help.
Never ever forget that he said that Don Imus was right about the Rutgers Women’s Basketball team.
Wow. I did not know that. That’s why I keep coming back to this site.
No, I believe he is still married to her. He gave an apology and stated that he has been with the same woman for 30 years. I don’t understand how she is still with him but to each his own.
I could swear I remember him talking about going through a divorce in one of his routines. I guess they got back together then. Why would she stay with him is beyond me too.
DL is disgusting.
Disgusting. But as mentioned below I remember his comments after the Imus mess so I guess I shouldn’t be surprised.
Yes, he went on one of the late night shows, maybe Leno, and said yes, they were some nhh’s. I couldn’t believe it. Jay tried his best not to laugh. I’ve been through with him ever since.
D.L. Hughly is a coon extraordinaire and a notorious hater of black women. He’s built his career degrading black women. He needs to be shut down.
He’s completely unhinged….he really needs to go lay down somewhere.
McCain calls White House official a ‘political hack’ when discussing Benghazi on Fox News
BY JAIME FULLER May 1 at 1:17 pm
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz). went on Fox News today to discuss White House e-mails concerning the 2012 attacks on a U.S. diplomatic post and CIA compound in Benghazi, Libya — e-mails that were released by conservative watchdog organization Judicial Watch on Tuesday. The Benghazi attacks have proved a source of perpetual tension between the Obama administration and Republican lawmakers on Capitol Hill. McCain called the White House’s response to the attacks an “obvious cover-up.” He also called Ben Rhodes, the deputy national security adviser, a “political hack for Obama reelect.”
“This is further authentication that this was a political exercise and is now being covered up in order to reelect the president,” McCain told “America’s Newsroom” co-host Martha MacCallum.

Time to put gramps in a home.
He does realize that PBO is termed out, doesn’t he?
He’s gone MsKitty, I don’t think he even knows where he’s at.
I’m totally going to steal from our Admiral in response to your comment.
“He’s dead, Jim”
They are still trying to argue that President Obama wouldn’t have been re-elected if all of the Benghazi “facts” were out there for the voters to consider.
They will never admit that this is a legitimately elected President (as opposed to GWB) and that the majority of voters aren’t as concerned about the Benghazi attack as they are.
We can see this, and keep reminding people in our circle of acquaintances that Cheney and GWB lost more than 3,000 of our fellow Americans. And, President Reagan seems to have gotten a pass from these same people for the Marine barracks being blown up in Beirut under his watch.
Them fuckers keep harping on Benghazi, but don’t say shit about Bushghazi–all those embassy attacks under Bush. Over 10 of them, I believe.
Damnit, who woke up Cotton Hill!
Let Mcbungle keep talking. Soon he will actually be drooling on camera, covering his head & shouting: “Duck, there goes a flock of them right over us!” He is losing it fast!
African American Businessman Changes Lives in Ghana
Don Felder, a wealthy African American businessman, has paid to build and equip schools in rural areas of Ghana.
He’s given some students scholarships to attend those schools and funded water and other projects throughout the West African country. Much of that work has gone unnoticed by the general public, but his generosity has had a significant impact on the lives of those he’s helped.
There’s Mary Sassa, a tall, soft-spoken woman, who’s about to complete a Master’s degree in human resources next July. Sassa, 28, grew up in the remote town of Obodan, where getting a high school diploma was an unusual accomplishment for a girl, let alone an advanced degree. “I’ve not seen any girl who has achieved where I am now. None have graduated from college,” Sassa said. “Some of them are willing to climb higher, but the money is a problem.”
In Obodan, surrounded by lush mountains and abundant pineapple farms, there was no high school for girls until Felder came along in 2001. At that time, many families, whose incomes were barely a few thousand dollars a year, sent their sons away to school. Their daughters stayed home and helped on the farms.
Felder, the founder of a successful international telecommunications company in New Jersey, contributed about $30,000 to assist Obodan officials in building the Diaspora Girls’ Senior High School, a private boarding school. Sassa was in that first class of students.
How anyone can be so evil is just beyond me. Read the whole thing and you know this woman is telling the truth. This man is the devil manifested in the flesh.
Mother claims funeral director essentially held baby’s body for ransom
Posted: Apr 29, 2014 7:35 PM EDT
HOPKINSVILLE, KY (WSMV) – Two grieving families are accusing a funeral director of taking advantage of them after the deaths of their babies. That funeral director is also an elected county coroner.
One of these mothers claims the funeral home essentially held her baby’s remains for ransom, but the funeral director says he did nothing wrong. Still, the mother was so distraught by the dispute she made a heartbreaking call to police for help.
Dispatcher: “911, where is your emergency?”
Mother: “I need a sheriff dispatched to Lamb Funeral Home.”
Dispatcher: “What’s going on at Lamb’s?”
Mother: “They have my baby and won’t release him.”
Just days after delivering a stillborn baby, that grieving mother was on her way to Lamb’s Funeral Home in Hopkinsville, KY, begging a dispatcher for help.
Dispatcher: “Who has your baby and won’t release it?”
Mother: “Lamb Funeral Home. He cussed out the funeral director. We talked with him to get a price earlier – what it would cost to bury our baby, a little baby, and he won’t release him to Todd County where we want him buried.”
Dispatcher: “Why are they refusing to release the child?”
Mother: “He said that I owe him money, but he hasn’t done any, provided any service. He hasn’t planned the funeral. He wouldn’t do anything until we come up with the money.”
Brittany Jones was the mother who made that call earlier this year. She and her husband claim Lamb Funeral Home essentially held their baby for ransom during their darkest hour. They say the owner of Lamb Funeral Home, who is also the coroner in Christian County, asked them to pay their balance for his services before he would release their son’s body to another funeral home.

Leon County Sheriff’s Office Maj. Michael Wood said Wednesday that the 20-year-old ordered the food at the deli in a Tallahassee, Fla.-area Publix on Tuesday night. After receiving the order, he left the store without paying.
Wood said Publix employees called deputies, who went to Winston’s apartment. Wood said Winston was “very cooperative” in a post-Miranda interview and acknowledged not paying for the food, saying he forgot.
After consulting with Publix managers, deputies issued Winston a civil citation that will require him to complete at least 20 hours of community service. If he does that, no criminal charges will be filed. He will also likely have to pay restitution.

Nigerian schoolgirls: jihadis ‘willing to consider’ release
By JONATHAN MILLER Foreign Affairs Correspondent
The jihadis who kidnapped more than 200 Nigerian schoolgirls two weeks ago say they are “willing to consider” the release of those who have not already been trafficked abroad and sold into marriage.
The girls’ abductors, who have been in regular direct contact with a government intermediary, also report that three of their teenaged captives have died – although they did not state how this happened. Eighteen others, they say, are now sick.
The intermediary told Channel 4 News that the al-Qaeda-affiliated group, Boko Haram, has threatened to kill the remaining hostages if there is any attempt by the Nigerian military to rescue the girls. Meanwhile in the capital Abuja, the Nigerian government is coming under intense public pressure to secure the girls’ release.
On Wednesday, the government announced publically for the first time that it had officially engaged the services of the negotiator. It declined to reveal his identity. He has told Channel 4 News that he wishes to remain anonymous for reasons of personal security.

—– -More than 16 percent of people who enrolled in Obamacare and stated their race in their application were African-American, according to preliminary data released by the Obama administration.
In a comprehensive report on enrollment through the Affordable Care
Act from October to April, the Department of Health and Human Services, for the first time, offered insights on the racial demographics of people who enrolled. This data is incomplete, though. It only includes people who live in one of the 36 states where the federal government operated the health insurance exchange, so it excludes states like New York and California, both of which have high minority populations. And even in those 36 states, 31 percent of people opted either not to report their race or checked “unknown” or “other.” And people who qualified for Medicaid, a group that is also likely to be disproportionately minority, were not broken down by race either.
In the sample of 3.8 million people in 36 states who bought private insurance, 16.7 percent were black, 10.7 percent Latino, 7.9 percent Asian, 62.9 percent white.
These early estimates suggest the administration is succeeding in enrolling blacks and other groups in the health insurance, but lagged behind with Latinos. About 15 percent of the people who could have enrolled in ACA plans are Latino. Black enrollment actually outpaced expectations, as about 13 percent of potential enrollees were black but nearly 17 percent selected an insurance plan.

– - – - – -A federal grand jury investigating the lane closings at the George Washington Bridge has subpoenaed the deputy general counsel of the Port Authority, Phillip Kwon, a longtime associate of Gov. Chris Christie, two sources with knowledge of the investigation confirmed today.
Kwon reportedly helped prepare the authority’s deputy executive director, Bill Baroni, for his November testimony before the Assembly Transportation Committee, which was then investigating who ordered two of three access lanes closed at the foot of the bridge in Fort Lee,
snarling traffic for several days.
The Wall Street Journal, which first reported the issuance of the
subpoena on its website, said that Kwon had hired a prominent attorney, Geoffrey Berman, of the firm Greenberg Traurig LLP, to represent him.
A source familiar with the matter who requested anonymity because he was not given permission to discuss the case publicly told The Star-Ledger that Kwon “was asked to testify last week, and today he asked the Port Authority for indemnification” — to cover his legal fees associated with the investigation.

This made me laugh until tears ran. Our western red squirrels are real aggressive. Sis tried to take a pic of one once & it chased her into the house & sat on her patio making evil noises for about half an hour. She was nervous about leaving her casa for days! I have to show her this.
When my oldest daughter was doing her residency, she lived in a Denver duplex. I took cafe on her front porch in the morning so I could enjoy watching a squirrel sitting on the neighboring roof, peeling off pieces of shingle & pelting the neighbor’s cats as they ran down the street in terror.

— –Graphic novel covers the Harlem Hellfighters’ struggle for respect – -
– - – -Max Brooks, the author of the popular World War Z and The Zombie Survival Guide, collaborated with artist Canaan White to create the graphic novel “The Harlem Hell Fighters.” It tells the story of the fighting 369th Regiment, the first African-American unit to fight in World War I.
They overcame unimaginable discrimination and neglect to become one of the most decorated units of the war. But before they got to fight
“over there,” the men of the 369th had to fight every day over here.
As the nation observes strides made by African-Americans under the
Civil Rights initiatives implemented 50 years ago, it should not go
unnoticed that the precursors of success may lie in the black man’s
determination to serve this nation.
Today, African-Americans in military service are an integral part of America’s fighting force. But it it wasn’t always that way.
Brooks told theGrio.com thatwhat makes WWI significant in the black man’s struggle for recognition is that the war was the fought under the banner of freedom and democracy when in fact there was no outward attempt to offer the same rights to black Americans in the armed forces. Before the 369th was formed, any black man who wanted to actually fight in “The Great War” had to enlist in French or Canadian units. Blacks had previously been detailed to service units, behind the lines or stateside.
– – –SNIP — -
– - -The 369th fought so hard and with such tenacity that they were dubbed
“The Harlem Hellfighters” by the German troops they faced. The 369th
became the first American unit to be cited with the French Croix de
Guerre. One medal of honor and many Distinguished Service Crosses were
awarded to members of the regiment.

“It’s — it’s like my life is wasting away,” Anderson, 37, told NBC
News’ Kate Snow in an exclusive interview that aired on TODAY on
“I think about my wife, my children … all my family … and I just try and stay positive, you know. ‘Cause it is depressing.”

My new living room set. Should be delivered Saturday. It’s cream colored which I’m not a fan of, but it was 2 pieces on sale for $595! With delivery and taxes it was a great deal. It’ll do. I could just buy sofa covers? Blue of course, blue is my color!
You could also scotchgard it lamh.
Luckily I don’t have an rugrats or pets, so I should be able to keep it relatively clean, but I’ve always had an affinity for blue though. So I’m leaning to maybe one of them “throw” things?
Also you could get some throw pillows in your fav shades of blue also. I’m glad you found something you liked on sale. They look comfortable & that’s what counts in the end, I think.

The happenings this past week in response to the not so surprising exposé of Donald Sterling as a racist, have been fascinating. Everything from the wealthy people who separately and as an alliance, have been willing to inject their voices into the media circus, and wave around their wallets asking “how much” – and whose voices have again been deemed to have more value than all of the rest; To the premature, almost congratulatory pats on the back that suggest that the posturing from a few wealthy folks flaunting their deep pockets with offers to buy, or permanently removing 81 year old Donald Sterling from League ownership and from his court side seats, suggests even the slightest shift to minority power, or will in some way make a dent in the fight against racism and bigotry in our terribly unjust society – or signal some sort of awakening and a commitment to do better.
We have watched these past 6 years as the legitimately elected first black President and his wife, the first black First Lady, have been so maligned, denigrated, demeaned, attacked and insulted in very personal, malicious and very damaging and far-reaching ways. Their lives have been consistently threatened, and disrespecting them by and in mainstream media has become pervasive - and a prerequisite for hiring and retention. The attacks are only one part of the attempt to discredit this President and First Lady; The constant undermining of their positive efforts that would otherwise move this country forward, and the deliberate obstruction and implementation of retrogressive new legislation by those who oppose them who prefer instead to reverse years of corrective Federal laws that anchored the important progress made to perfect our delicate Union, have been beyond dangerous – the disastrous effects of which will be felt for a long time to come.
If all it took was chiming in from wealthy people of color and white people, pressure from social media and a press conference from a stern and well-meaning Commissioner, how come it’s been all crickets all these years, from these very same people, as our Democracy and the very essence our civil society has been thrashed and taken hostage by a bunch of publicly vocal and unapologetic Donald Sterlings? So many of the same outraged high profile folks, continue to be besties with Donald Trump, Rupert Murdoch, Oscar de La Renta and a bunch of other high profile racists who have incited, bankrolled and cheered on a lot of the attacks and disrespect of our President and First Lady. To pretend that Mr Sterling is an anomaly, or to see any of these high profile folks who’ve selectively inserted themselves into the Sterling fray as anything other than cowardly, self-serving opportunists, would be a grave mistake. There have been lots of opportunities to do the right thing – to speak up and speak out forcefully against the disrespect of both the President and First Lady; And had many of these folks spoken up as soon as the unprovoked and unwarranted personal attacks on the black President and First Lady started, perhaps there would be much less of the madness and some of the outright hostilities manifest and publicly accepted and mainstreamed in the ways we’ve come to see these past 6 years; Who knows? What we do know is that we’d remember – and for what it’s worth, many of the peddlers of hate would today be pariahs in certain sectors of our civil society instead of besties with many of those acting all outraged by the content of Donald Sterling’s released private conversations.
This is the best writing I’ve read (limited, I admit) on this whole subject which I am sick of hearing and reading about. The entire fiasco exonerates all those “well-meaning” folks who, as you iterated, have no problem with the ugly racism directed toward two of the most honorable, intelligent, professional, kind-hearted, and charismatic people- the Obamas- this country has had the pleasure (for most) of beholding. Thank you the time spent sharing this, Mi.
Thank you so much Edp4; I’m grateful for this place full of smart, passionate, righteous people who care.

— – - -Oklahoma Inmate Was Tasered Day of Execution
– - — – - - Oklahoma’s prison chief today released a timeline regarding the botched execution of Clayton Lockett, and two items are getting much of the attention: In the morning, guards had to Taser Lockett when he refused to be rRAYIN’ 4 the Family♥ —AMEN♥estrained; and in the evening, a technician had so much trouble finding a suitable vein that he had to inject the lethal drugs into Lockett’s groin—a development that may have delayed prison officials’ realization that something had gone wrong, reports the Guardian.
That’s because authorities had covered the area with a sheet so
witnesses wouldn’t see Lockett’s groin. It wasn’t until about 20 minutes after the injections began that a doctor realized the vein had
collapsed and that the drugs “had either absorbed into tissue, leaked
out or both.” – -

Disquis is eating comments again. I’m finally watching MItt. This is crazy…an alternate universe.
Media black out for a lot of PBO’s appearances. I read a lot of comments about that special but I can’t bring myself to watch it because even looking at the Robmes makes me want to barf.

- —The estate of Martin Luther King Jr. has withdrawn a request to disqualify a lawyer for his daughter from participating in a dispute over the ownership of King’s Bible and Nobel Peace Prize.
The slain civil rights icon’s estate, controlled by his sons, is locked in a legal dispute with his daughter, the Rev. Bernice King, over ownership of the items.
Each side had sought to disqualify the other side’s lawyers. A judge
ruled that the estate’s original lawyer and his firm had to be
disqualified because the lawyer had been appointed by another judge to help resolve a similar 2008 dispute between the King children and the entities they control.

My Sis had a blocked artery & from what I get from her she had some prelim symptoms a few days before that she ignored because she was “busy.”
When her stoke hit she was driving her grandson to soccer practice. She hit a guard rail & they rolled into an arroyo. She doesn’t remember the accident except for saying she “couldn’t stop.” It’s a blessed miracle that neither of them were really hurt much in the accident.
Pay attention folks! Get regular check ups, even with regular exercise you need to watch your diet & your cholesterol. NEVER EVER IGNORE ANY WEIRD SYMPTOMS!
My Sis told me she was having headache, blurred vision (she thought just she needed new glasses) & some numbness in her hand & foot off & on for several days before her stroke. WARNING! LISTEN TO YOUR BODY!

—–Teen Takes Great-Grandma to First Prom- -
– - – - It’s one of the more unusual prom dates of the season, and one of the sweetest, too. A high school senior in Rockford, Ohio, took his 89-year-old great-grandmother—who never got to go to a prom of her own—to his big dance, reports the Times Bulletin. At first, Delores Dennison tried to decline the invitation (“I’m not that good my feet”) but Austin Dennison was “so sweet and adamant about it” that she finally relented, she recalls to Fox News.
Her great-grandson even surprised her by making sure the Frank Sinatra song Dolores (“How I love the kisses of Dolores …”) played during the night. “I chose that song because Grandpa Ed used to sing that song to her,” said Austin.

– - – -Rush Limbaugh’s Ratings Are In a State Of Complete Collapse- – -
– - – -Bad ratings news is rolling in for Rush Limbaugh as his show has fallen to 22nd in New York and 37th in Los Angeles. Limbaugh’s ratings are in a state of major decline.
Rush Limbaugh’s claim to radio fame has always been that he is a
right wing talker who brings big ratings to major markets in blue
states, but this isn’t the case anymore. Since he moved to Clear Channel his ratings in the nation’s two largest markets have nosedived. Rush Limbaugh went from having the number one talk show in Los Angeles to falling down to 37th place in the ratings. In New York, Limbaugh has dropped from fifth in the city to 22nd. His audience is now so small in both markets that he is being outdrawn by Spanish language stations and NPR.
It’s amazing that radio stations are paying this man who can’t draw an audience any more millions of dollars to carry his program.
Limbaugh’s ratings collapse has been building for a long time. His
comments about Sandra Fluke tarnished him within the radio industry, but the real problem has been a lingering boycott that has caused Fortune 500 advertisers to avoid Rush like the plague.
