Despite turbulence, Daytona Beach,Fl residents show resilience in peaceful protest !

march edit

  • Daytona Beach, Fl – May 30, 2020

 

In 2014, New York lost Eric Garner to the hands of police. Eric Garner was put in a choke hold by NYPD for allegedly selling unlicensed cigarettes. A crime that doesn’t hold a death sentence. Yet, this was the outcome for this father and family man. After protest, marches, and constant pressure it seemed things started to change. Fast forward to 2020, in Minneapolis, a man by the name of George Floyd would meet a very similar fate. It makes us wonder what will it take to truly get a change. To actually feel protected by police instead of uncertain. But before we dig deep, I’d like to point out an interesting observation that will show an uncanny and underlining truth about the state America and how it may have intensified.

march 8

Daytona Beach,Fl held a peaceful protest led by Rell Black, a pivotal young man in the city’s moral & educational development along with being an important voice when it comes to injustices and black culture. Rell was apart of a large team that visited Houston,TX to deliver essential goods after the devastating hurricane Harvey hit in 2017. Even recently, Rell held a beach clean up the day after large crowds flooded the city for Memorial Day Weekend. This is only two of many examples that shows the extremes Rell has gone to to impute change.

I found the peaceful protest as they approached Beach St & ISB Blvd. As I approach I noticed a man jump out of a truck from the passenger side; a white man.  The truck carried a boat behind it and the boat carried a huge Trump flag. The man snatched the flag off his boat and put it inside of the truck before he passed the protest. At first it didn’t make sense to me. How does that even correlate to the situation and why would he want to hide a Trump flag as he passed a protest about a man being killed by the police? It hit me later. As I sat in the median on ISB Blvd, to get a unique vantage point take a photo, a man drove by in a white pick-up truck flicking off the crowd of protestors. It sort of hurt my feelings to know that someone, who could potentially be my neighbor, had such harsh feelings towards the situation. As I stared at the truck while it passed guess what sticker he had stamped on the back of his truck? A Trump sticker.

march 5

Before I give my opinion I’d like to point out that the protest was one of the most beautiful protest I’ve ever seen. It was diverse. It warmed my heart to see that it wasn’t just a black and white thing. Some people just want what’s right and see the obvious inequalities. Social media and the new age of technology definitely intensified situations that would have ultimately gone unseen or unheard.  Which brings me to my earlier point. In order for a man to hide his Trump flag as he passed a protest about a black man being killed by a cop, yet again,  says to me that he felt that Trump flag held a deeper meaning. Which was that it fueled racism and the death of George Floyd was fueled by racism. Which is a very sad sentiment towards the state of this country. I mean, if the country’s leader made racist feel more comfortable what does that really say?

Despite this saddening observation this protest gave me great vibes. There was so much passion there. So much love. I was proud for our city. I’ll be honest, I was discouraged moments before I joined the protest. Wondering how things could actually change. This protest gave me a new outlook. A new motivation. We’re definitely lucky and blessed to have leaders such as Rell Black, along with other great leaders.

The picture above is Rell Black being carried away by ambulance after having his foot run over. It happened moments after a man yelled, “They’re trying to hit us with their cars now!”. Yet, the look on his face isn’t troubled at all. It seemed that we are used to being resilient during times like this. This is the strength I felt.

This scene happened after I left. When I was there things were pleasant. I had a photoshoot to do at 1pm so I left the protest early. Some of the protestors said that they had been marching for hours already when I arrived around 12. My photoshoot ended around 4pm. I went to WAWA on the corner of ISB Blvd and people were still out protesting. I was literally amazed at the perseverance they had towards making sure this message was heard. Despite the heat, despite the discouragement, despite the rage from racist, they didn’t let up. The beauty of some people is something to really awe upon, at times. Big shout out to Kale Cafe (116 N Beach St, Daytona Beach, Florida 32114) and the entire family for handing out cold smoothies for protestors to drink.

march 1

Don’t be confused. I started this article off rough because I wanted you to understand the resilience of our people. George Floyd can’t get anything from us physically now. But his family still has to push through in this tough time here on Earth. This is why it is so necessary that we have situations such as these peaceful protest. It is to constantly remind the people that we can’t let up. The moment we ease up is the moment they feel they can do as they feel to us. But the people show resilience every time. If you don’t believe me, just go back to Rell’s picture above moments after his foot was crushed.

Thank you to all the people that dedicated their time for this moment. Keep the fight alive and continue to apply pressure!

Artist in the Spotlight: Shauna Ti’er

IMG_0056

Gospel Artist and Aspiring Actress Shauna Ti’er was born March 23, 1976 in Jacksonville, FL. She was raised in Daytona Beach, Florida and started singing at the age of 5 in her local family church, New Mt. Zion Baptist. At the age of 12, she landed the lead role in a school play where her acting and singing talents were displayed. She has always loved to sing and share her gift with people.

Even at a young age, she learned to love the art of music and was inspired by several known legends in the industry including Shirley Caesar, Helen Baylor, the Clark Sisters, and also R&B sensation, the late Whitney Houston to name a few. At the age of 15, Shauna Ti’er was offered a very unique position as a Special Teen Advisor for Fashion (STAFF) with JCPenney. During this time, she was afforded the opportunity to showcase her modeling talents and began to blossom as a performer at that point. She started to write music and really began to develop a deeper love for her craft as a music artist.

In 1996 she moved to Atlanta, GA and another chapter in her life began. She was blessed to become a praise and worship leader at a local church, where God began to really show her his plan for her life. During this time she wrote a gospel play that was showcased in several churches around the local area. In 2016, after writing many songs, she felt compelled to move forward with her career in the entertainment industry. She was blessed to be signed with NTM Group, under the management of Shanita Brown, after which she released her first single in March of 2017, titled “Lord You Are Worthy”. The single was produced by Grammy-nominated producer Will Neal.

After 21 years of different roles in the kingdom and even a few seasons of falling away from her beliefs, she never lost her faith in God, nor her desire to serve him wholeheartedly by using her gifts. In March 2017, God commissioned her and her family to move to Harrisburg, PA, where she is now a member of the Bridge of Faith Ministries under the leadership of Pastor Sheila Harris. Shauna Ti’er is now in full swing using her God-given talents by singing, acting, and speaking/teaching as requested! She has completed the video of her single that will be released in early June of 2018 and is now working on an EP with new music to be released in the spring of 2019.

Company Review: NTM Group

Today we are reviewing a very promising management company called NTM Group. This company is dear to me because the owner is from my hometown of Daytona Beach, FL. I learned of the company through the talent they represent. I have personally watched some of the artist and models flourish under the direction of NTM Group. I feel this is a good start for anyone looking for a career in entertainment. I had to pleasure of speaking with S. Brown who is the Chief Executive Officer of Naturally Talented Management Group, this is her story.
ntm
NTM Group stands for Naturally Talented Management Group, established in 2013. The company started by a mother that wanted to help her child. Her daughter would come home  from school everyday crying because kids made fun of her by calling her names and hitting on her. She felt as if she was ugly because the kids were so cruel. One day the fed up mom wanted to help her daughter with her self-esteem, so she googled modeling. Up came a site that promoted modeling and acting, so she registered her daughter. There was an amazing response from photographers and casting directors that wanted her daughter to model for them. The duo traveled from city to city modeling, she quickly became a hot commodity.
ntm1The mother noticed that her daughter was a natural and that’s where the name naturally talented came from. After a couple of years of guiding her daughter, the mother decided to mange other people, she began managing numerous people.  After the experience with her daughter, she wanted to help other children that were subjected to bullying, ridicule and low self-esteem. Those people included models, rappers and actors. NTM is a full service management company for models, actors, singers and more. We provide great, reliable customer service and talent representation. Our talent has appeared on shows like; The Glades on A & E, Disney commercials, and they have opened up for Artist such as R Kelly, Cody Simpson and Omarion. In an attempt to give back we donate to St. Jude’s Children’s hospital and during Christmas we buy toys for children that are less fortunate. We believe having a strong foundation will allow our clients shine in all they do.

Is it ok to go Dutch on the First Date?

Ok fellas I know it’s a new day and age, but really is it ok to go Dutch on the first date? Ladies have you ever been asked to go Dutch? How does this play on gender roles? How has the norms of the American society shaped such a question? I would like to examine this topic from a man and a woman’s point of view in a positive and negative light.

Personally, I think a man asking a woman out on a date and then asking her to pay half of the bill is unconstitutional. I mean just looking at traditional customs when a man shows interest in a woman, he asked her out on a date. He asked her out on a date so he could get to know her better and build a connection that could lead to their bodies being connected, of course.  In my eyes a man who wants you to pay half of the bill on the first date has no real interest in pursuing you seriously. He doesn’t value your company enough to pay for a meal he surely won’t value your time when he’s sorting through his other options. Yes it appears that you are an option, a priority will be treated as such and you better believe he has priorities. Some men like to test women to see what they will do when put in situations like this. They are insecure and want to see if you will react like their last girl or if you would be as irate as they thought you would be.

Now if a woman leaves the tip she is the real MVP, especially when she does it on her own free will.  Not all women base love off the amount of money you spend on her. Women love to feel protected and secure on all levels. If she feels as if you would give your last for her, she will give her all to you. The first date is crucial when it comes to dating, first impressions are everything. If she feels like you can’t buy a meal then how are you going to buy anything else of importance? It’s not the money that’s the issue it’s the consideration.  But you have some women that will take the entire tab and won’t let a man pay for anything. She might as well give him her panties too. Why take the protector and provider role from a man? Why do you need to parade the fact that you can do it? If he feels like you don’t need him for anything, then how could he ever be your knight in shining amour? Anytime he messes up in the relationship this woman who would buy this man anything he desires will also take it back just to show her power over him. 

 Roles have been reversed among the male and female and the reasoning is beyond me. Some say it’s due to society and the evolution of the independent female. Some of it’s due to the lack of leadership among our males and the unequal treatment in the workforce.  If you have more money than your man then you should invest in his dreams not in his leisure. Help him plant a seed to grow his own tree rather than eating the fruit from yours. And same for the men, help your woman cultivate her land don’t pull up all the roots because you don’t see her true essence. But I think I got a little too deep, back to the surface, on a first date treat her as you would want someone to treat your mother, your sister or your daughter. And women remember you are someone’s mother, someone’s sister, someone’s daughter, so act accordingly.

Stay tuned for part 2…..

Bruce Walton – Keedie’s Corner

Suicide Prevention Group Impacting The City of Daytona in Big Ways

Chief and editor of Keedie’s Corner, Keidra Ponder, had the pleasure of sitting with Stephanie Foreman who is a member of the SOTA (Student Occupational Therapy Association) to discuss this ongoing issue of suicide.The passion in her words and the fire in her eyes told me this lady meant business when it came to saving lives. She is a student at Daytona State College and is studying to be an Occupational Therapist Assistant who plans to heal the world from the inside out.Stephanie was introduced to this awareness group by one of her instructors, Mary Beth, who is over the OTA (Occupational Therapy Assistant) program. Carol Luby is the president over the suicide prevention program at Daytona State and is the Lady behind the rallying for awareness. Before joining the organization Stephanie met with Carol who is also a school counselor to discuss the sensitivity of suicide. She then became aware of the silent killer who is claiming more lives than society is acknowledging. I had the opportunity to get a deeper look into Stephanie’s passion and her reasoning behind wanting to help others.

  • Have you ever dealt with depression or have had a family member who was depressed to the point of committing suicide?

  • I can’t say that any of my relatives have openly admitted to wanting to commit suicide but I have known people who have taken their lives due to depression. But I do know the effects of depression because of the bad situation I grew up in. I used the situation for motivation, yet my brother used our childhood as a reason for some of his bad decisions. He was depressed and didn’t know it until he was locked behind bars with more than enough time to think about why he made the choices he did.

  • Do you think women talk about depression openly more than men?

  • I think women talk about everything more openly than men. Which is why women have more outlets for help because they are willing to seek help faster than a man will. This does not mean women are not committing suicide, it just means men hold a lot of stress in and are more likely to commit suicide and will do it in a more violent way than a woman would. For women and men it’s important to talk about their feelings and thoughts of harming ones self.

  • How do you feel about depression, suicide and therapy within the African American community?

  • In school we learned about cultural differences when it comes to the use of medicine and different healing practices. In the African American community going to the doctor is almost somewhat of a last resort. We don’t go to the doctors until something is broke and barely hanging on. In the past African Americans where shunned by white America so on some levels there is some kind of distrust. It was not stressed how important it is to have regular doctor and dentist visits, so mental health evaluations were definitely swept under the rug. Africans Americans always have had a resilience to pain due to the things we have overcome as a people, yet sometimes it’s those feelings of pain that don’t reside and turn into depression. Even if African Americans aren’t open to talking to a doctor still talk to someone whether it be a pastor, teacher, friend, co-worker etc just speak up. Some African Americans think suicide is a “white” thing but depression affects everyone man, woman and child no matter the race or age.

Some things Stephanie enlightened me about were;

  • In the state of Florida suicide rates is 3 to 5 to murder rate. So for every 3 murders there is 5 suicides.
  • Depression is a clinical illness that goes unnoticed way too often because it’s a long term clinical illness that can’t necessarily be seen.
  • Cries for help may be mere blatant statements like “I don’t want to be here”, “Life Sucks”, “I’m ready to go home”.
  • People who commit suicide plan that act long before it actually followed out.

According to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention;

  • After cancer and heart disease, suicide accounts for more mortality than any other cause of death.
  • In 2013, someone in America died by suicide every 12.8 minutes
  • 19.1% of these suicides were among individuals between 45 to 64 years old.  18.6% suicides occurred in the age group 85 years and older. While young adults between the ages of 15 to 24 made up 10.9% of the individuals who attempted suicide.

Some suicide risk factors include;

  • Health Factors such as depression, PTSD, substance abuse, chronic pain, etc.
  • Environmental Factors like being exposed to graphic images of suicide, harassment, unemployment, relationship problems, poverty and so forth.
  • Historical Factors are things like family history of suicide and/or previous suicide attempts.

Risk of suicide can be observed in a person’s talk, behavior and/or mood. Some of the risk may be external while others are internal. Signs to be on the lookout for are;

  • A persons that talks of having nothing to live for, feeling trapped and/ or being in unbearable pain
  • A persons behavior becomes reckless and they are withdrawing from family and friends.
  • A persons mood will change, you may notice a loss of interest in day to day living with signs of irritability and anxiety.

Jump to present day, as I sit with Stephanie and talk about her future plans, she informed me there is a suicide prevention walk called “Out of the Darkness Campus Walk” coming up on April 24th from 6pm till 8pm. This is a 5k walk which happens each spring at institutions around America. The walk that was held at the Daytona State campus last year raised over $10,000. The money was put into raising suicide awareness by starting different community outreach groups. This year some of the groups that will be in attendance will be Begin Again.They are the surviving family members of individuals who have committed suicide. Also participating in the walk will be the group 22toomany. There an organization for the families of soldiers who have lost their lives to suicide brought on by PTSD, depression, schizophrenia, and other mental health issues. The name of the organization is derived from the fact that nearly 22 soldiers die a day from suicide. The families of the fallen soldiers will send in pictures and the participants will wear them on their shirts in remembrance of lost ones. If you have a solider that has lost their lives due to suicide send their picture to 22 Too Many and one of the walkers will wear it on their shirt for remembrance.They are also looking for a few good participants to help during the walk, whether it’s being in the walk, working the booths or rest stops. Please come out and show your support. Lets stand in unity and heal each other. Click the links below for more information on the “Out of Darkness Camus Walk” and suicide prevention.

When asked is there any words of wisdom or encouragement that Stephanie would leave the listeners with her response was, “I want the listeners to know that we all need each other. It’s always a way to get out of any situation that you may be in. If you or your friend is suffering for depression don’t let the feeling over come you, let it go. It’s our job to help people, not to just look for contentment within ourselves. We need to help one another because that’s what were here for”.

Boosie – Daytona Beach, Fl – Axess Event Center – Trinity Enterprise Live (Video)

IMG_3537_Fotor

 

This past weekend Axess Event Center hosted what may have been the biggest Hip-Hop concert the city has seen since the days of BCR! Courtesy of Trinity Enterprise Live (the promotional team) and DJ Pat, Keedie’s Corner was able to get stage “Axess” to this event!

IMG_3425_Fotor

 

The venue definitely reached its capacity. The residents of Central Florida were raving about this event for the past 2 months. Boosie’s fan base grew significantly after his release from jail, in which he did 5 years and was even on death row at one point.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

There were a number of well known Daytona Beach,Fl natives who attended the event including Fire Boy Records artist and executives Sticks, Fire Boy Mike and David Rosario. Also, on the 1’s & 2’s Real Souf Dj’z (DJ Pat, DJ Daytona 5 (in video it says Will Tuck. Apologies)REALSOUFENT@GMAIL.COM, DJ-CLO, and William Bell). Artist Flowda Fresh showed love to the event as well and DeLand Hood News made his on stage appearance as well.

 

The man of the hour, Boosie, set the stage on fire as soon as he walked out. He performed hits such as “Crazy”, “No Juice” and “Set it Off”! He didn’t get to perform as long as he should have because the Fire Marshal shut the venue down. There were a lot of discrepancies as to what led to the early shut of the venue. We got a chance to speak with Adam Elam, CEO of Trinity Enterprise, and this is what he had to say to the people…

First off I would like to apologize to everyone that didn’t get a chance to enjoy the event. Being the owner of one of the major Southeastern promotional companies I didn’t expect to generate the amount of people from the small area. Doors opened at 10:30pm and at 9:30pm there were already 1,000 people outside.  Axess Event Center and our staff did our best to get everyone in the building, especially the ones with pre-sale tickets. By 11:30pm the Fire Marshal and The Daytona Beach Police Department wanted to close the doors  because of the numerous amount of people outside of the venue. For those who didn’t get to enjoy the concert we will have another event on March 28th and if you still have your tickets we will be doing ticket exchanges. So you will be able to enjoy Boosie Bad Azz & Bad Azz Ent. On behalf of Trinity Enterprise and Axess Event Center we apologize once again and please forgive us because the situation was out of our hands and into the hands of the law enforcement. If you have any questions contact me at trinityenterpriselive@gmail.com. Thanks for the support and love

Below you can watch the video of the performance!

Artist in the spotlight; Fash Cash

Born In Daytona Beach, Fl., and raised in DeLand, Fl., Fash Cash is an up and coming artist with a style all her own.  Representing Hav-Not Muzic Group, the R&B singer has been singing since the age of 6. Her passion for music led to her to begin song writing at 12 years old. Where most young girls were worried about the latest fashion trends and hairstyles , Fash Cash had her own agenda and becoming a star was in her plans. Read the article below to get a glimpse into her life.

  • What was it like growing up where you’re from?

When I was growing up, I was back and forth between Daytona and DeLand, so I experienced life growing up in Daytona Beach, as well as in DeLand. I would say growing up where I am from is no different than any other hood. You have your good experiences and you have your bad experiences, but for the most part you experience a lot growing up, whether it be good or bad.
Life has taught me to continue to be humble because being humble and having a personal relationship with God will take you further in life than trying to do everything yourself.

  • What was you turning point in life or an eye opening event that made you understand your purpose more clearly?

The turning point for me was when I wrote and recorded my first single “Lullaby Music”, because for years, I did nothing with my voices or writing abilities -I shied away from music. When I recorded that track, I felt it… I knew that I was to be sharing my gift with others, moving them through music.

  • What are some of your influences in the music field?

I grew up in one of the greatest eras of R&B history! So, naturally I was influenced by the biggest names of 90’s like Mariah Carey, Mary J Blige, Faith Evans, Aaliyah, Deborah Coxx, Brandy, Tamia, the list goes on…

  • Do you have any songs or videos the readers can check out?

Yes! I have “Lullaby Music”, “Married Man”, and “Without You” which can be listened to on my SoundCloud at https://soundcloud.com/fash-cash and also on my website at http://www.fashcashofficial.com.
The video “Married Man” can be viewed on Daily Motion, MUZU, and VEVO.

  • Your track “Married Man” is really deep. A lot of women settle for married men, what is your take on this?

I don’t want no married man! I don’t want nobody that belong to somebody else! I feel that in any instance, if you are aware that you are involved with a married man, you should leave. There’s no sense in carrying on a relationship with someone who doesn’t belong to you; someone who is already spoken for. You have to respect yourself and know your worth.’Cause everybody deserves someone they can call their own.

  • Tell me about your video shoot “Married Man”, I heard it was interesting.

I had a good time on the set of “Married Man”. I initially went in to do a photo shoot with Skyy Johnson, the photographer over at Skyy Johnson Studios. When I came on the set Dannie Ace was just finishing up her photo shoot. I was a little nervous because it was my first photo shoot, so when my shoot began, we cued in “Married Man” so that I could loosen up a bit. “Married Man” brought a different vibe to the set and Skyy decided that we go ahead and shoot the video for “Married Man”. I was combative at first because i just knew I was not prepared for a video shoot, but I came around to the idea. Dannie Ace agreed to feature in the video and we started filming. Just so happens, it came out GREAT!

  • Do you prefer to be on stage or in the studio, why?

Honestly, I haven’t been on stage in a while, but I can say that I enjoyed the feeling. I’m always in the studio, so at this moment I would rather be on stage performing.

  • What project are you currently working on?

I am currently working on some material for both my EP “Lipstick” and my mixtape “Beach Girl”.

  • Do you have any shows coming up?

I am currently studio bound, finishing up music for my EP “Lipstick which is set to release Spring, 2015. But shows are definitely in the works for 2015.

  • As a performer, you are a public figure without even trying to be. Will you stand with Keedie’s Corner and speak out against the senseless killings that are happening in America? How do you feel about the relationship between black men and police / authority figures?

Honestly, I feel as though the relationship between black men and police and other authority figures is the new form of the relationship between slaves and slave owners. The hatred, the oppression, the profiling, the killings, the inequality, the public displays of injustice gone unjustified against black men forces me to believe that we are entering an age that the police must be policed. But each individual’s heart will be judged in due time. We all have to answer to someone higher than ourselves.
