GDW EVENT ALERT AUGUST IS ON FIRE

By Gloria Dulan-Wils

Hello All:



Well, unless you live on another planet, or under a rock, you know that this is the middle of Harlem Week in New York City.  Of course, most New Yorkers know that Harlem Week is a month-long celebration of things Harlem - running from the end of July to the beginning of September. It's then followed by The West Indian Day Parade, and the beginning of the end of Summer.

Harlem Week, of course, in and of itself, is chocked full of enough activities, that you almost don't have to post anything else.  It's about business, culture, health, love, education, spirituality and a whole lot of fun.  We have enough to go for the next 30 days non-stop.  Enough that you could just do Harlem Week and have more than filled your quota of activities.  But we know that New York always has something going on everywhere at the same time, I though I might fill you in on what else is happening and bring you up to speed on some other events of interest taking place over the next few days.

Please note:  If you have activities or event you want to be included on GDW EVENT ALERT please mail them to be on Tuesdays by or before midnight - to eclecticallyblacknews@gmail.com

FOR OUR CHILDREN :  NO MATTER WHAT YOUR AGE - COME OUT AND ENJOY THE 2016 PRODUCTION OF THE WIZ IN DA HOOD 
Wiz N’ Da Hood’ Play Production
Camp Kama-Sahlor for Cultural Performing Arts presents ‘Wiz N’ Da Hood’ written and directed by Germantown’s Community Activist, Lisa Hopkins affectionately known as ‘Sister Lisa.
This high-energy production features children from ages five to nineteen inside and outside of Philadelphia who are excited to be a part of a community and economically based summer program. This six week program provided lessons on: African culture, African- American history, theater arts, visual arts and hip/hop dance skills all needed to help develop confidence, communication and public speaking abilities for children who essentially lack resources in their communities.

Wiz N’ Da Hood’ is a modern day re-telling of the classic story that addresses bullying and codependency, but the script details a lighter theme of children’s addiction to unhealthy substances of candy and junk food.
Lisa Hopkins incorporated hot music tracks featuring, R&B, Old School House, Rap, and Gospel hip/hop that will surely make you wanna’ dance with the characters: Dorthea, Snoop-Doggone, Mechanicman, Candyman and of course, Totally, Dorthea’s doggie as they find their way to the miracle worker, himself, Da’ Wiz.
Camp Kamp-Sahlor newly contracted the multi-talented Jortae Charles, a Moore College of Art sophomore and intern on this project. Jortae is the expert on hip/hop choreography with mind blowing acrobatics along with offering her artistic skills of designing the stage set. Her musical theater experience was developed from the New Freedom Theatre that lead to directing a children’s ensemble singing that sing in this production.
