“The Art of Composition”

Yoshi’s Oakland

510 Embarcadero W
Oakland Ca 94607

Pianist/M.C./Producer/Band-Director premieres excerpts from his new hip-hopera: The Chosen One

Choice

The theme for this special performance is “The Art of Composition” as Oakland M.C./Pianist/Composer Kev Choice and his dynamic Ensemble will focusing on compositions and instrumental works that he has written and compiled over the years. His compositions have a wide range of influence from Herbie Hancock to Maurice Ravel to J-Dilla. He will also cover select compositions from his favorite composers ranging from Stevie Wonder, Chopin, to Kanye West. In addition, Kev Choice will be premiering excerpts from his Hip-Hopera-“Electus Unus” (The Chosen One), which will feature the Ensemble joined by a string trio section and bassonist. “The Chosen One”, a concept project that Kev has been working on for the past year, is a mythological story of a child who was sent to the Earth, from the Heavens, to save a self-destructing world with his extraordinary musical talents. The story is told in a rap style over lush string arrangements and classic hip-hop drum patterns. Extended intros, codas, modulations, thick instrumentation, lays the foundation of this half-fantasy/half-reality tale that stretches the boundaries of the hip-hop genre. As “Keyboard Magazine” recently tweeted, “Anyone who doesn’t think real keyboard playing and rap dont mix, check Kev Choice”.
Pianist/M.C./Producer/Band-Director, Kev Choice is a multi-faceted artist poised to take the music world to dimensions it has never before seen. Never before has an artist grounded in the Hip-Hop tradition, had this type of musical prowess. Classically and jazz trained, schooled in the classic era of Hip-Hop, and influenced by genres from all over the globe, Kev Choice is a unique artist with the capabilities to blend musical elements in a convincing manner. With a resume that includes a Master’s Degree in Music, and having toured the world professionally as a keyboardist and M.C. with a diverse list of artist such as of Lauryn Hill, D.J. Quik, Too Short, Dwele, Zion I, Goapele, LyricsBorn, Martin Luther, and Michael Franti and Spearhead, it is hard to deny the extreme gift that Kev Choice brings to the stage. Having formed his band, Kev Choice Ensemble, in 2007, Kev Choice began to focus on giving the world his unique sound and vision while presenting a powerful stage show. Kev Choice has named “Best Musician” and “Most Multi-Talented Instrumentalist” by East Bay Express in the past few years and also nominated for “Best Soul-Funk Artist” by SF WEEKLY on 3 different occasions. An M.C. that can deliver conscious, witty, relevant lyrics, while playing keys with the skill of a seasoned pianist, is a sight to behold and a breath of freshness to the industry.
The Kev Choice Ensemble has been one of the most dynamic bands in The Bay Area over the last 5 years. The Ensemble features a diverse array and mix of talented musicians with a broad range of talents from the jazz elements of Howard Riley and Geechi Taylor to the soulfulness of Viveca Hawkins voice or Greggo Simmons on guitar. The foundation is held together by the super solid Hassan Hurd on drums, the funk-rock presence of Uriah Duffy on Bass, and the seasoned stylings of Mike Blankenship on keys. For this show they will also be joined by Ajayi Jackson on bassoon and percussion, as well as a string trio featuring violin, viola, and cello. The Ensemble has been heralded as “the most musical hip-hop group ever”.

Keb’ Mo’ Henry (Cambridge Folk Fest 2004)

Singer-songwriter and guitarist Keb’ Mo’s music is a living link to the seminal Delta blues that traveled up the Mississippi River and across the expanse of America–informing all of its musical roots-before evolving into a universally celebrated art form. Born Kevin Moore in South Los Angeles to parents originally from the deep South, he adopted his better known stage name when he was a young player who became inspired by the force of this essential African-American legacy. In the storied tradition of bluesmen before him including Muddy Waters-formerly McKinley Morganfield-and Taj Mahal, who began his days as Henry St. Clair Fredericks, Moore became known as Keb’ Mo’. His acclaimed self-titled 1994 debut album introduced that now famous appellation to the world, and his latest album, 2006’s Suitcase, brings it to new heights.

“Where It All Begins”

http://lalahhathaway.com
Lalah Hathaway, one of contemporary R&B’s most prized artists and in-demand vocalists will release her sixth solo album and second for Stax Records, Where It All Begins on October 18th, 2011. The versatile, critically acclaimed musician, songwriter, vocalist and producer found creative regeneration and newfound energy making this record, an artistic re-birth she’s eager to share with anyone willing to listen. “Everybody is an artist in some way,” Hathaway enthuses, “I wanted to explore what that really means. For me it meant walking into being the artist I’ve always wanted to be. It was an opportunity for me to embrace my independence as an artist through my music and connection to my fans.”
Hathaway brings that message home splendidly on the gorgeous title track, penned by her and Ernest Green. “If you say what you mean/And mean what you say,” she croons at the beginning of Where It All Begins, showcasing her sensual alto over a languid, hypnotic groove.
In addition to Green, Hathaway recruited other esteemed kindred spirits to either co-write or contribute tailor-made tunes. The list includes Lewis Williams, Lee Hutson, Jr., Errol Cooney, James Day, James Fauntleroy, Rahsaan Patterson, Terrence Lilly, Jonathan Richmond, Mike City, Dave Young, Bryan Sledge, Eddie Serrano, Rich King, Andre Harris and Vidal Davis. Recruiting such top-tier songwriters – some of who have penned hits for Alicia Keys, Jill Scott, Bilal, Babyface, Musiq Soulchild, and host of others, demonstrates Hathaway’s long-held status in contemporary R&B.
This album contains several up-tempo gems that are sure to heat up urban radio stations and nightclubs. For example, check out “If You Want To,” the album’s thumping, synth-driven first single, penned with Patterson, Richmond, and Lilly and the effervescent “My Everything,” which she co-wrote with Jonathan Richmond. The slinky groove of Hutson, Jr.’s “Small of My Back” is also undeniable.
Where It All Begins comes on the heels of Hathaway’s most successful album to date, 2008’s Self Portrait, her first record for legendary soul label Stax Records. The album reached the top ten on the Top R&B Albums chart and included the Grammy® nominated (Best Female R&B Vocal) song “That Was Then.”
Indeed, Hathaway intoxicates as a storyteller. Even though her voice brims with magnetism, she never overpowers it to point of drowning out the lyrics. As with previous albums, Where It All Begins comes loaded with enduring songs that sound personal yet easily relatable, touching upon affairs of the heart as well as the everyday joys of life.
The disc comes on strong from the get-go. Andre Harris and Vidal Davis’ gutsy “Strong Woman,” is a sassy cautionary tale, urging lotharios to step up to the plate and stop taking their devoted female lovers for granted.
Naturally, the singer hasn’t abandoned her R&B roots. Where It All Begins includes luxurious slow jams such as “This Could Be Love” (co-written with Green and Lewis), on which she sings of joys and fears of truly falling in love with that someone special, and City’s bittersweet “Always Love You,” which hints of the sadness leaving an unfulfilling romantic relationship.
Hard-core fans will certainly be delighted with the newly arranged and recorded “I’m Coming Back,” a Quiet-Storm jewel, written by Gary Taylor, which appeared on her 1990 eponymous debut. It’s a song that’s remained a highlight of her live shows for two decades. “No matter, where I go – churches, festivals, Japan, South Africa – people love that song,” Hathaway says, “This version has a different arrangement, because it’s morphed over the years. I decided to rerecord it. We added vocalist Rachelle Ferrell at the end, which is really sublime.”
When it comes to honoring her predecessors, perhaps there’s no other greater example on Where It All Begins than with her spellbinding take on “You Were Meant For Me,” a chestnut that her late father – the incomparable Donny Hathaway recorded.
In view of Donny Hathaway’s landmark albums and indisputable influence on generations of singers worldwide, she speaks of him as a guiding light, especially when it comes to interpreting other people’s music. “I really listened to my dad’s own songs,” Hathaway says fondly, “‘Jealous Guy’ by John Lennon – I always thought my father owned that,” she laughs, “I just grew up with the approach of opening yourself up to create something beautiful, that’s a love letter to what came before.”
On Where It All Begins, Lalah Hathaway unquestionably succeeds at opening herself up in new and profound ways, striving for artistic higher ground and to ‘create something beautiful.’ “I feel like I’m at the top of my game, like I’m at the beginning again,” she says, excitedly. “There aren’t many artists, particularly female singers, who after 20 years, are kind of still on the come up. I feel like I’m on the come up.”

José James “Trouble” – AllSaints Basement Sessions

Born and raised in Minneapolis, José James came of age with the sounds of Prince, hip-hop and Modern jazz. Discovering an early passion for both music and creative writing, José combined these through performance – singing jazz standards, originals, and the works of John Coltrane with his quartet throughout the Twin Cites. Becoming a member of the groundbreaking avant-garde performance poetry and jazz ensemble Ancestor Energy, José was determined to devote his life to music, community, and spiritual unity.
Moving to New York City to attend The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music, he was mentored by and recorded with both the legendary drummer Chico Hamilton and the pianist Junior Mance. There he also met his first ensemble that would form the studio and international touring band for his 2008 debut album “The Dreamer” (Jan 2008, Brownswood).
A chance meeting in London with international tastemaker and DJ Gilles Peterson led to a record deal on Peterson’s Brownswood Recordings label. Drawing upon diverse influences such as Freestyle Fellowship and Rahsaan Roland Kirk, “The Dreamer” was an international critical success, with José performing at venues such as the North Sea Jazz Festival, Billboard Live Tokyo, The Hermitage Museum, and Central Park Summerstage. “The Dreamer” was voted #21 Critic’s Pick of JazzTimes Top 50 Jazz Albums of 2008.
His sophomore release “BLACKMAGIC” (Feb 2010, Brownswood) explored the worldwide underground, featuring production from Flying Lotus, Moodymann, Taylor McFerrin, and DJ Mitsu the Beats. “BLACKMAGIC” also featured James’s live band in new territory, covering dubstep pioneer Benga’s “Emotions” and exploring a soul/hip-hop version of the R&B classic “Save Your Love For Me.” “BLACKMAGIC” toured in over 30 countries, at venues such as the Montreal Jazz Festival, Ancienne Belgique, Melkweg, and Lincoln Center. “Love Conversation” (produced by Taylor McFerrin), “Save Your Love for Me,” and “Desire” (from The Dreamer) were featured in Fox Searchlight Pictures 2010 “Our Family Wedding” starring Forest Whitaker, America Ferrera, Carlos Mencia, and Lance Gross.
Signing to Verve/Universal in 2010, James’s third studio album “For All We Know” (May 2010, Impulse!) was released on the legendary “Impulse!” label, home to many of John Coltrane’s masterworks. Largely recorded in a single day at the famed Galaxy Studios in Belguim, “For All We Know” is a deep and timeless duo album of jazz standards featuring Jef Neve on piano.
Winner of both the Edison Award and L’Académie du Jazz Grand Prix for best Vocal Jazz Album of 2010, “For All We Know” was James’s most intimate project to date, with performances in premiere concert halls such as L’Olympia, Royal Festival Hall, and De Roma, as well venues such as the Umbria Jazz Festival, Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola and Cotton Club Tokyo.
The collaboration between James and Jef Neve continued with an ambitious ongoing live project “Facing East: The Music of John Coltrane.” Conceived and directed by James “Facing East” made its worldwide debut at Ancienne Belgique, Brussels, and continued on to venues such as the North Sea Jazz Festival, Nice Jazz Festival, New Morning, and Ronnie Scott’s.
As a featured guest José has recorded albums with Junior Mance, Chico Hamilton, Nicola Conte, Bassment Jaxx, Jazzanova, Toshio Matsuura, J.A.M., DJ Mitsu the Beats, Timo Lassy, Taylor McFerrin, and Flying Lotus.
Recent projects include guest performances with Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra’s “A Tribute to Billy Strayhorn” at Rose Theater, as well as touring internationally with McCoy Tyner’s “The Music of John Coltrane and Johnny Hartman.”
He was recently voted 2011 DownBeat Critics Poll “Rising Star Best Male Vocalist” and is currently working on his fourth studio album “No Beginning, No End.”

SF State Choir

1330 Fillmore Street
SF, CA 94115

The SF State Gospel Choir was founded by current choir director Ja Ronn Thompson in the Spring of 2004. At that time he didn’t expect anyone to take him seriously. He was only a freshman and not even a music major. But he was determined to bring Gospel music to our campus. When he expressed interest in starting the choir, music professor Dr. Dee Spencer told him to “Make it happen.” Therefore, Ja Ronn toured the campus handing out fliers and encouraging people to try out.
There were seven members at their first rehearsal, singing without sheet music or a band to accompany them from one musical transition to the next. They also didn’t have a regular practice room, so they used various classrooms and sometimes hallways in order to perfect their songs.
The San Francisco State gospel choir, a student-run group, became a one-unit music course in its second semester. Now in it’s 14th semester the group is comprised of 85 singers and 7 musicians of different backgrounds and majors, there is plenty of diversity in this group. Having grown exponentially over the past 7 years, their big sound has only gotten better.

HIROSHIMA CHRISTMAS

Yoshi’s San Francisco

1330 Fillmore Street
SF, CA 94115

Celebrating with their Annual Holiday show at Yoshi’s San Francisco!

In the three decades since they first convened, the Los Angeles-based ensemble of Dan Kuramoto (keyboards/woodwinds/composer/producer), June Okida Kuramoto (koto), Danny Yamamoto (drums), Kimo Cornwell (piano/keyboards), Dean Cortez (bass) and newest member Shoji Kameda (taiko drum/percussion) have blended jazz, pop, and rock with traditional Japanese folk music and instruments. The resulting sound was a pioneering voice in the world music movement of the late 20th century.
While Hiroshima have sold more than three million records in their prolific career, they’ve done something even more important in the process: they’ve introduced a variety of traditional Asian instruments to a global audience, and integrated them seamlessly into a new music and art form. The Japanese koto, a zither-like, 13-stringed instrument, shakuhachi, a five holed bamboo flute, and the powerful taiko (which literally means “drum”) combine with instruments from the Western Hemisphere to create their unique musical palette.
This year, we are delighted to have Hiroshima bring their (Los Angeles) annual holiday tradition to Yoshi’s San Francisco. With a mix of Hiroshima “classics” as well as songs that reflect the “spirit of the season” ..this will certainly be one show that you won’t want to miss!

OCCUPY OAKLAND! OCCUPY WALL STREET!!!
Oakland City Attorney
Resigns! FORCED OUT!!! Can’t Dodge Fraud, Corruption Charges!
The Occupy Movement that has swept America and the world, had it’s Occupy Oakland beginnings with the revelation of irrefutable evidence of the mass fraud and corruption of the Oakland City Attorney, Oakland Police Department, Alameda County District Attorney, Alameda County Superior Court, California State Appeals Court and California Supreme Court in an action to deny justice and cover up that denial of justice in the 20 year case of Abdul-Jalil al-Hakim vs CSAA, Rescue, et al.
The unrest caused by the exposure of the criminal actions of these law enforcement, legal and judicial individuals/bodies in this matter implored others to investigate the ongoing case revealing even more rampant corruption that has dramatically portrayed the sullied, sordid underbelly culture of corruption that Oakland and Alameda County has long been known for! This pattern continued even through the Oscar Grant murder debacle but lead to the people of the Oakland East Bay Area and beyond, standing up to that corruption and saying “NO MORE!!!”.
The cry at ALL the Occupy events world-wide are echoing the frustration felt by the people of the East Bay Area, “We are ALL Oscar Grant!!” and most are reacting in solidarity and union with those whom have voiced their opinions with their frustrations in a varied manner of ways. The world witnessed as Oakland revolted and burned with the that cry and now the whole world is chanting the same tune and following Oakland lead as it did in the 1960-70’s re-evolution!
The Minority and Occupy Communities ( #occupyoakland #OWS) are evaluating the elected officials, want-to-be-leaders, clergy and so-called power brokers that do not represent their interest, yet claim to bargain and speak for them! How can these self-perceived “influence peddlers” bargain away the rights and interests of people they do not talk to, know nor represent?
African-American youth, the overall Minority Youth Community with the Occupyers ( #occupyoakland #OWS) know these carpet baggers and their “bagmen” are sellouts and represent BIG BUSINESS INTEREST- the Developers, Banks, Insurance Companies, Attorneys and maintaining the status quo! The Minority Youth Community with the Occupyers proclaim widely and loudly that they ARE NOT the constituents of these turncoats that disavow their very own ethnic orientation because they acknowledge that being Black in America is to be considered worthless and disposable!
One of Oakland Mayor Jean Quan’s problems is her depending on the advice of Uncle Toms Sandre Swanson, and Keith Carson; while fighting bootlicking-backstabbing Larry Reid and Ignacio DeLaFuente; assumming theres some influence of want-to-be-leaders, clergy and so-called power brokers to move the concerned disenfranchised; with double crooked duplicitous Dan Siegle! (More coming on this cast of characters)
Oakland City Councilmen Larry Reid and Ignacio DeLaFuente have given away many, many millions of dollars in valuable Real Estate to their developer partners! From 14th Ave to 106th Ave and down from MacArthur Blvd. to the Bay. Councilmen Reid and DeLaFuente are owned and controlled by developers! That’s why they constantly connive so shamelessly for the Civil Gang Injunctions and curfews, with EVERY act of difference they are in the media spinning it as an example of serious crime that could be eliminated with the injunction/curfew. Reid has gone on air and repeatedly tried to trivialize and void the entire good of some lives by claiming their life was somehow lost to or compromised by gang related violence that could have been avoided by the injunction/curfew by pushes for his disposed partner in crime, former City Attorney John Russo. Many families resenting that media manipulation with on air to publicly denounce Reid’s developers serving claims!
Reid was served with a complaint against his partner Russo and refused to investigate it, but rather chose to cover it up. Not so oddly enough, that was the same stance taken by Sandre Swanson, Keith Carson and District Attorney Nancy O’Malley. Who are they protecting and why? Carson has made himself a witness in this case my the admissions made by District Attorney Nancy O’Malley to him regarding the incident where she had al-Hakim removed from the D. A.’s office while sitting alone in the lobby waiting for a meeting!
The real reason the Reid Gang wants the injunction/curfews are because they are law enforcement and real estate developers dream tools for gentrifying the inner-city and administratively taking land from the poor! Not so unfortunately, an analyst last week revealed that the North Oakland Gang Injunction HAS FAILED to reduce crime in any way, yet in has enriched the police department with over $12 million while the Oakland Police Department has FAILED to comply with the Federal Mandate to meet MINIMUM agreed upon standards to fight corruption! This failure is one of the presumed reasons for Oakland Police Department Chief Anthony Batts resigning. One question being asked now is did Mayor Ron Dellums or City Attorney John Russo investigate the many alleged charges of abuse against former Oakland Police Department Chief Anthony Batts before they hired him and was that a factor in his resigning?

O’Malley further ordered al-Hakim to NEVER return to the courthouse under the threat of arrest by D. A. Bob Conner, someone known to al-Hakim to have tried to place al-Hakim in a life threatening situation that resulted in the only conviction of police officers crimes committed while on duty! She made this order without any legal proceeding, court order nor cause in her effort to prompt a conflict of interest charge to avoid having to investigate and prosecute the complaint and evidence by al-Hakim that establishes the admitted fraud committed by the D.A.’s office for over 20 years!

  • Day: Fri, Dec 9, 2011
  • Showtime: 9:00 PM
  • Doors open: 8:00 PM

Erykah Badu was born Erica Wright in Dallas, Texas, in 1972. By the age of 14, Erykah was free-styling for a local radio station alongside such talent as Roy Hargrove, who, incidentally, was a talented beat-boxer back in the 80’s and who is now a very successful session musician in his own right. In her early youth, she decided to change the spelling of her name from Erica to Erykah, as she firmly believed her original name to be her ‘slave’ name. The term ‘kah’ signifies the inner self, which, when translated from Muslim, means ‘can do no wrong’. Her surname, Badu, derives from an Arabic word which means ‘to manifest truth and light’. After completing her theatre studies at university in 1993, Erykah Badu decided to concentrate on her music. She began to teach children how to sing and dance, whilst also performing in a hip-hop act with her cousin entitled Erykah Free. The following year Erykah met Tim Grace, of Legacy Entertainment. He listened to a demo once and decided to sign the young hip-hop duo without further hesitation. He then successfully managed to book Erykah Free to open for such established hip-hop crews as A Tribe Called Quest and Arrested Development. Erykah began recording the Baduizm set in 1996 and worked with such talented producers as ?love and Richard Nichols of The Roots, James Poyser and N’dambi. February of 1997 couldn’t possibly have been a bigger year for Erykah. Her debut album was released and it achieved platinum status in under a month; her live shows received continual praise and her popularity increased dramatically. Erykah Badu had finally arrived on the big stage. Erykah Badu inevitably drew close comparisons to the legendary Billie Holiday. The formers blend of old soul, jazz and hip-hop, fused with a hypnotic flow is capable of stirring the deepest emotions, and Erykah’s place amongst today’s elite female soul artists of the world is already well and truly assured.********

A Victoria Theodore Christmas

Victoria Theodore received her Bachelor of Music and Bachelor of Arts degrees in Classical Piano Performance and Computer Music from Oberlin College / Conservatory of Music (where she studied piano with Sedmara Zakarian Rutstein), and her Master of Arts degree in Classical Piano Performance from Stanford University (where she studied piano with George Barth and vocal accompaniment with Judith Bettina). As a teen, Victoria studied piano and voice in the UC Berkeley Young Musician’s Program (YMP) and sang (and began her accompanying career) with the Oakland Youth Chorus (OYC) , under the direction of Trente Morant. Through YMP, Victoria studied piano primarily with Eugene Gash (1920-1995), the first African-American concert pianist to perform a solo concert at Carnegie Hall, and a student of E. Robert Schmitz (1889-1949), a student of composer Claude Debussy. During her Stanford years, Victoria also studied Jazz Piano with Mark Levine, Bill Bell and Frank Martin.
While studying for her MA, Victoria performed with several San Francisco Bay Area ensembles and bands, including The Peninsula Symphony, Theatreworks, Hayward Little Theater, Oakland Youth Chorus, and jazz bands Victoria Theodore Quintet, Time Will Tell Sextet, LMNOP and 10BassT. Shortly after graduation from Stanford, Victoria toured nationally as a keyboardist for Captiol Records artists Oaktown 357 – produced by MC Hammer.
After Oaktown 357’s tour ended, Victoria moved to New York City to run a multimedia company. In 2000, Victoria returned to the Bay Area after several years running her company, GlobalDisc.com – a very successful venture which is still a market leader in same day media duplication.
Beginning in August, 2007, Victoria was hired to tour with legendary musical genius Stevie Wonder, playing keyboards and singing background vocals in his band. She has traveled around the world with Stevie and looks forward to more touring! (And yes, it’s as fabulous as you’d imagine!)
Victoria is a highly sought Bay Area pianist, keyboardist and accompanist, respected for her wide ranging musical versatility. Victoria resides in San Leandro, CA, and teaches students from her home when she’s not performing with various R&B, jazz, gospel, pop and classical artists.
Victoria has performed with Sting, Smokey Robinson, B.B. King, John Legend, Jeff Beck, Rickey Minor, Boney James, Esperanza Spalding, Tyrese, Prince, Tony Bennett, John Mayer, India Arie, Glenn Lewis and many others!

Fela

November 15, 2011 -December 11, 2011
8:00PM

Curran Theatre
445 Geary St
SanFrancisco, CA  94102

Fela! is presented by Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, the first time they’ve produced a Broadway show. Fela! was created by Bill T. Jones. Jones choreographed, wrote the play book for, and directed Fela! Jones created his own dance company, has won a MacArthur Genius Award, a Harlem Renaissance Award, an Obie, and a Tony, among many other honors.
Fela! documents the incredible true story of Fela Kuti, a musician from Nigeria who pioneered Afro beat music, and who fought for civil rights and against political corruption in his native country.
Fela was initially going to be a doctor, but decided to be a musician instead, fusing many different styles and the sounds of his native country into what eventually became known as his own distinct and complex style of music, Afrobeat.

The Political Struggles of Fela

Fela first started calling his music Afrobeat in the late sixties, and as his career progressed, his music got more political, much to the chagrin of the Nigerian government, who attacked the commune where Fela lived, destroying his studio, and beating him badly (Fela’s mother was killed during the attack).
But this didn’t quiet Fela or his music, which continued to infuriate the government. Fela also tried to run for President in Nigeria’s first elections in over ten years. When Fela died in 1997, over a million people came to the funeral chanting “Fela will live forever,” and a shrine was built in his honor.
It has been said that hip-hop would not exist without Fela’s music, and he was also described as a combination of James Brown, Muhammad Ali, and Bob Dylan. Eventually Fela’s music was re-released, and several musical shows showcasing his story and life hit the stage (recently a movie from Focus Features about the life of Fela was made for release in 2010).

Fela! was first performed off-Broadway in 2008, and it was a huge success, hitting Broadway the following year, with the help of Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith, Jay-Z, and several other producers. The music of Fela has also been provided by Antibalas, a modern nine-piece afrobeat band. Fela! of course also features the incredible legacy of music he left behind, and his musical and political legacy still live on strong.

The Triumph of Fela

The musical Fela! is an incredible explosion of music, color and culture. The website www.felaonbroadway.com notes, “Please be advised that Fela! has loud sound effects, smoke and haze effects and strobe effects. “The Broadway experience can be like sitting with blinders on,” the creator of Fela! told Billboard. “This is a show you enjoy as much with your body as with your mind. It’s free and communal.”
Fela! is presented by Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, the first time they’ve produced a Broadway show. Fela! was created by Bill T. Jones. Jones choreographed, wrote the play book for, and directed Fela! Jones created his own dance company, has won a MacArthur Genius Award, a Harlem Renaissance Award, an Obie, and a Tony, among many other honors.
Fela! has been nominated for 11 Tony Awards, and has won three: Best Choreography, Best Costume Design for a Musical, and Best Sound Design for a Musical.

THE PHARCYDE with Live Band

Yoshi’s San Francisco

1330 Fillmore Street
SF, CA 94115

Friday, December 16, 2011
10:30 pm

An influential alternative rap quartet from South Central Los Angeles, the Pharcyde was formed by MCs/producers Tre “Slimkid” Hardson, Imani Wilcox, and Romye “Booty Brown” Robinson. Hardson, Wilcox, and Robinson were all dancers and choreographers who met on the L.A. underground club circuit in the late ’80s, worked together for a while, and served a stint as dancers on In Living Color. Under the tutelage of Reggie Andrews, a local high-school music teacher, the group learned about the music industry and the process of recording an album. They landed a deal with Delicious Vinyl in 1991, and a year later released their eccentric debut album, Bizarre Ride II the Pharcyde, which went gold. After support slots for De La Soul and A Tribe Called Quest as well as a successful spot on Lollapalooza’s second stage in 1994, the group released its second album, Labcabincalifornia, which was calmer than their first but no less warped. After a five-year break which saw little action, the Pharcyde returned in late 2000 with their third album, Plain Rap.

DJ Funklor
DJ Funklor has ripped up stages from his hometown, the Bay Area, all the way to Greece. In that time he has been asked to play for artists such as: Smokey Robinson, Snoop Dogg, Erykah Badu, Drake, The Roots, Damian Marley, Ice Cube, Ben Harper, N*E*R*D, Nas and many more.

MACEO PARKER’S NEW YEARS PARTY!

Yoshi’s San Francisco

1330 Fillmore Street
SF, CA 94115

Thursday, December 29, 2011
10:00 pm

Celebrate the New Year with some Funk!

Parker talks with his sax, chatters away without a seeming care. It’s a musical antidepressant, an antidote to dark days. ….firmed my belief that the world would be a better place if we all funked together.
-San Diego Reader
Maceo Parker: his name is synonymous with Funky Music, his pedigree impeccable; his band: the tightest little funk orchestra on earth.
Everyone knows by now that he’s played with each and every leader of funk, his start with James Brown, which Maceo describes as ” like being at University “; jumping aboard the Mothership with George Clinton; stretching out with Bootsy’s Rubber Band. He’s the living, breathing pulse which connects the history of Funk in one golden thread. The cipher which unravels dance music down to its core.
His collaborations over the years performing or recording or both have included Ray Charles, Ani Difranco, James Taylor, De La Soul, Dave Matthews Band and the Red Hot Chilli Peppers. His timeless sound has garnered him a fresh young fan base.
It is almost impossible to separate which came first, Maceo or the funk. The amazing P-funk Parker has been at it with his legendary alto horn for some time dating back to the 1960’s. That’s when Maceo and his drummer brother Melvin climbed on board the James Brown funky soul funk train. It wasn’t long before James coined the solo summoning signature, “ Maceo, I want you to Blow!”. To most musicologists it’s the muscially fertile group of men from this period of James Brown’s band who are recognized as the early pioneers of the modern funk and hip-hop we still jump to today.
For more information, please visit Maceo Parker’s website.

ZONGO JUNCTION/ TURKUAZ

  • Doors open: 8:00 PM

SLIM’S
333 11th St
San Francisco, CA 94103

Zongo Junction embodies the wealth of Brooklyn’s musical diversity, by melding traditional West African rhythms with Funk, Jazz and Soul from the U.S. Heavily influenced by Nigerian superstar, political activist and afrobeat pioneer, Fela Anikulapo Kuti, the 13-piece ensemble gets audiences riled up and dancing at every show they put on.
The band was conceived in early 2007 by drummer Charles Ferguson and original keyboardist, Adam Coopersmith while the two attended the New School in New York City. When Charles returned from a six-month trip to Ghana, where he studied African highlife music and traditional xylophone technique, he teamed up with Adam and 11 other musicians to form Zongo Junction. The name comes from the bus stop from which Charles lived off of while living in Accra, Ghana.
The band was well received from the start. Their club debut at Public Assembly (formerly the Galapagos Arts Center) in Williamsburg, Brooklyn in July was a huge success, and led to a monthly residency for the duration of the year. Since then, the band has performed at some of New York’s most illustrious venues including the Knitting Factory and Le Poisson Rouge as well as Williams College in Williamstown, MA and the Elbo Room in San Francisco where they played a sold out show the night before New Year’s in 2009.
The core of the band was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area and has been playing music together virtually since they were all still in diapers. Five members of the band were part of the prestigious Berkeley High School Jazz Ensemble (alumni include: Joshua Redman, Peter Apfelbaum, Will Bernard, Benny Green) and twice toured Europe. All members moved to New York after High School to attend music programs at The New School and New York University.
Turkuaz is comprised of Brooklyn’s funkiest and brightest. The two founding members, Taylor Shell and Dave Brandwein, met at Berklee College of Music in Boston. As members of the Galaxy Smith Digital Media Collective (Galaxysmith.com) they are now kicking things into high gear with their 8 – 13 piece (depending on the occasion) high energy funk band. Influences range from the Talking Heads to James Brown – P-Funk to Jamiroquai – creating a show which is an eclectic mix of funk influences and sounds from all over the board. When the group takes their party to the stage it certainly is a spectacle to be remembered.

IDLE WARSHIP

feat. Talib Kweli, Res and Live Band

Yoshi’s San Francisco

1330 Fillmore Street
SF, CA 94115

Friday, January 6, 2012
10:00 pm

Idle Warship “System Addict” feat. Jean Grae & Jay Knocka

After four years of independently released tracks that spread like wildfire across the web, Idle Warship will release their first official collection of songs entitled Habits of the Heart on November 1st, 2011, viaBlacksmith/Element 9/Fontana. The 12-track album has Idle Warship storming the music scene with a bold and indefinable mash-up of influences, from soul to hip-hip to alternative to electronic. Idle Warship brought an incredible range of musical sensibilities into the studio and we’ll venture to say that the output will completely blow your mind.
Idle Warship is a perfect example of how a whole can become greater than the sum of its parts – and that is saying quite a lot given the musical components of this project. A collaboration between longtime friends and collaborators, hip-hop luminary Talib Kweli and critically acclaimed soulful singer and songwriter Res, Idle Warship was born out of sheer experimentation in the studio. But some of the best things in life happen when least expected. When fans of Talib and Res heard and reacted to some online MP3s of what these two had created during their off-the-cuff sessions, it became clear that that something much bigger was brewing. Since making a huge splash at SXSW in 2009 and completing a successful European tour, Idle Warship made Party Robot – their mixtape with master DJ Mick Boogie and singer/songwriter Graph Nobel – available for free download in 2010. It only left the fans craving more, and now the wait is over!
With an obvious chemistry, a dedication to free creative expression and now a new album, Talib and Res’partnership has become a musical force to be reckoned with. Habits of the Heart effortlessly shifts from the rhythmic hand-clapping blast of “Laser Beams” (stream or embed the song here) to the off-kilter futuristic track “Driving Me Insane” to the unbridled, heartfelt piano ballad “Beautifully Bad.” With guest spots fromChester French and John Forte on “Covered in Fantasy,” and Michelle Williams on “Katya,” Habits of The Heart takes you on one thrilling journey.

Branford Marsalis
NEA Jazz Master, renowned Grammy Award®-winning saxophonist and Tony Award® nominee composer Branford Marsalis is one of the most revered instrumentalists of his time. The three-time Grammy Award® winner has continued to exercise and expand his skills as an instrumentalist, a composer, and the head of Marsalis Music, the label he founded in 2002 that has allowed him to produce both his own projects and those of the jazz world’s most promising new and established artists.
Marsalis made his Broadway debut as the composer of original music for the Tony Award® winning Broadway revival of August Wilson’s play “Fences”. Marsalis received a Tony nomination in the category of “Best Original Score (Music and/or Lyrics) Written for the Theatre” and a 2010 Drama Desk Award® for “Outstanding Music in a Play” for his participation.
Leader of one of the finest jazz Quartets today, and a frequent soloist with classical ensembles, Branford has become increasingly sought after as a featured soloist with such acclaimed orchestras as the Chicago, Detroit, Düsseldorf, and North Carolina Symphonies and the Boston Pops, with a growing repertoire that includes compositions by Copland, Debussy, Glazunov, Ibert, Mahler, Milhaud, Rorem and Vaughn Williams. His propensity for innovative and forward-thinking compels him to seek new and challenging works by modern classical composers such as modern Scottish composer Sally Beamish who, after hearing Branford perform her composition “The Imagined Sound of Sun on Stone” at the 2006 North Sea Jazz Festival, was inspired to re-conceive a piece in progress, “Under the Wing of the Rock,” which he premiered as part of the Celtic Connections festival Beamish’s home country of Scotland in January 2009.
Making his first appearance with the New York Philharmonic in the summer of 2010, Marsalis was again invited to join them as soloist in their 2010-2011 concert series where he unequivocally demonstrated his versatility and prowess, bringing “a gracious poise and supple tone… and an insouciant swagger” (New York Times) to the repertoire.
In 2011, the National Endowment for the Arts conferred the prestigious Jazz Masters Fellowship on the Marsalis Family, a celebration and acknowledgement of a family described by the New York Times as “jazz’s most storied living dynasty”, who have made an indelible mark, collectively and individually, on the history and the future of jazz, America’s art form.
Songs of Mirth and Melancholy
On Songs, the mutual admiration between Marsalis and Calderazzo is expressed through music that is the result of close listening, cooperation, and continuous adjustment to one another’s musical ideas. Branford says,“The duo is more like classical chamber music. You have to listen to each other or it doesn’t work.” Joey adds that they challenge each other to step up their playing; “I put myself out there now, painting myself into corners to see if I can figure out the puzzle.” The musicians both treat the duo performance as an opportunity for something completely unique from their performances together in the Branford Marsalis Quartet.“… the object is not to play in the same way that you play in other situations. You have to change the conversation as well as the setting. Once you know the form, you can just react to each other, which you can’t do when a group gets larger.”
Songs includes three original compositions from Marsalis, four from Calderazzo, a cover of a Wayne Shorter’s “Face on the Barroom Floor,” and Brahms’s “Die Trauernde,” which Marsalis identifies as “the inspiration for how we approach everything as a duo.” Marsalis and Calderazzo recorded Songsclose to home at Durham, North Carolina’s Hayti Center. Marsalis describes the room as having qualities that “studios and concert halls pay millions to achieve. The sound is incredibly intimate,and very naked.”
The same could be said of the sounds that Branford Marsalis and Joey Calderazzo have brought forth on Songs of Mirth and Melancholy. Neighbors, golf buddies,teaching colleagues, longtime band members and friends, Marsalis and Calderazzo share with their listeners a passionate and profound duo collection.
Whether on the stage, in the recording studio, in the classroom or in the community, Branford Marsalis embodies a commitment to musical excellence and a determination to keep music at the forefront.

Their ever-evolving setlist encompasses an amalgam of Return To Forever classics, highlights from each member’s solo repertoire, and brand-new compositions written for the RTF IV lineup.
“Since all the guys in the band are such good composers, I wanted to have everyone’s compositions add to the new RTF IV vibe. So we all agreed: let’s open it up — which is the way we like it, and I think the way the fans like it too.” — Chick Corea
Check out recent setlists at: http://return2forever.com/category/set-lists-photos/
RTF IV is recently off a successful run across Australia that was deemed “nothing short of wonderful” and “a renaissance.”

Dweezil Zappa, a 2009 GRAMMY Award winner, continues to record and perform on a regular basis around the world.

Solidifying the tours once-in-a-lifetime experience, Zappa Plays Zappa, the musical tribute to Frank Zappa, will join the bill alongside Return To Forever IV (RTF IV), the legendary groups fresh incarnation. The RTF IV lineup consists of core members Chick Corea (keys), Stanley Clarke (bass) and Lenny White (drums), along with Mahavishnu Orchestra alum and violin virtuoso Jean-Luc Ponty as well as guitarist Frank Gambale.
More on RTF IV here: http://return2forever.com/rtfiv-lineup/
Working together with complete creative compatibility and steeped in the tradition of extreme freedom of expression, these five pillars of jazz and rock have prepared a must-see performance that will please fans new and old. Their ever-evolving setlist encompasses an amalgam of Return To Forever classics, highlights from each members solo repertoire, and brand-new compositions written for the RTF IV lineup.
Since all the guys in the band are such good composers, I wanted to have everyones compositions add to the new RTF IV vibe. So we all agreed: lets open it up which is the way we like it, and I think the way the fans like it too. Chick Corea

RTF IV is recently off a successful run across Australia that was deemed nothing short of wonderful and a renaissance.

Zappa Plays Zappa was founded by Dweezil Zappa to bring the music of his late father, Frank Zappa, to contemporary audiences through a series of international performance tours dubbed “Tour De Frank.”  Dweezil’s fellow band members are among the most brilliant and innovative players working in any genre and, collectively, rise to the challenge of bringing the legendary Zappa repertoire alive in concert. Dweezil Zappa, a 2009 GRAMMY Award winner, continues to record and perform on a regular basis around the world.

R&B vocalist returns!

Few young singers from the nascent” new school” of conscious soul possess the grace, maturity, strength and determination of amel larrieux, whose epic solo debut infinite possibilities places her in a musical niche all her own.
Drawing on a wealth of influences from jazz, hip-hop, gospel and funky r&b, and with flashes of middle eastern, west african and indian ethnic styles, amel has crafted a veritable concept album that explores an endless range of promise and potential…lyrically, musically and personally. reflecting the title she chose, infinite possibilities symbolizes a challenge, not only to herself but to the self-limiting and thus incomplete definition of what is commercially identified as black music and art today.
“I’m not worried about labels,” amel says when asked about the term “progressive r&b,” which has been applied to many of today’s artists. “some folks need them for clarity. but the definition of ‘black music’ should be looked at. if everyone knew how many kinds of music could technically fall under this category, its use would be more justifiable. but most people just don’t know.”
“What’s really disturbing is that many artists are making forms of black music blues, rock & roll, jazz, soul, but for some reason their music is not categorized as ‘black music.’ so i wonder, does your skin color determine what category you’re in? in the end, it doesn’t really matter what anyone calls it. label it, that’s fine–i just keep makin’ ‘amel’s music.'” Watch her video “For Real” on YouTube here.

“Z-Trip is the original Girltalk; only better. The best (DJ) show ever” Spin Magazine
Z-Trip is not just a DJ. He is more than a producer. He is a musical pioneer. And sits at the helm of the highest echelon of DJ royalty. As a performer, Z-Trip is revered as one of the best live performance DJs in history, by both fans and peers. Its no surprise fans voted him Americas Best D in 2009, beating out over 100 other DJs in DJ Times highly acclaimed annual readers poll. His worldwide sold out shows continue to set attendance records while drawing critical praise. One of the great musical moments from Coachella (2002) was the frenzied set by turntable wizard Z-Trip. He had fans howling and bobbing, closing his set with a surprise appearance by Beck, wrote the Los Angles Times. Its a fact that many call him the godfather of mash-ups, as he is one of the originators of the genre.
His lengthy career has seen him crisscross the globe numerous times, chalking up rave reviews along the way. He returned to Coachella 2010, for his fourth appearance at the festival headlining the Sahara Tent, where the OC Register noted: Even against two of the biggest draws on the schedule, Z-Trip raked em in, filling the Sahara with over 15,000 revelers. His 2009 Detroit Electronic Music Festival performance to over 10,000 stole the festival receiving the lions share of press: “Z-Trip lit up Saturday night, first by jamming with RJD2 then following with a Detroit-saluting mash-up set, beamed Billboard.
At the vanguard of dance music culture, he is at the heart of the DJ Hero video game series. Appearing as an avatar and providing several scorching remixes, Z-Trips relentless vision even defied the advanced technology. An 8-bar scratch that he wanted to incorporate into the game was too much for the games memory to handle. Beyond being immortalized as a playable character and his contribution of three exclusive tracks to the first installment, he remained a consultant, as well as executive producer, for DJ Hero 2 and created an additional two tracks.
Worldwide sold out shows would be enough for most artists, but not Z-Trip. His career brims with myriad milestones, starting from the now legendary mixtape, Uneasy Listening, which the Phoenix, AZ native put together with Missouris notorious DJ P. Back in 2001, the idea of pitting classic rock tracks against hip-hop into a seamless mix that could find the Pharcyde rapping over the Eagles or Metallica grinding it out under the righteous bark of Midnight Oil was unheard of. But instead of hating it as expected, enraptured fans disseminated the initial run of only 1000 CDs across the internet. By years end, Uneasy Listening had made Z-Trip a burgeoning DJ star. It went on to receive critical acclaim and helped propel Z-Trip to national attention in 2002. It made album of the year lists in Spin, Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly, Wired and XLR8R. More importantly, it also inadvertently created an entirely new genre of music.
Then, on top of being a world-class DJ, Z-Trip established himself as a formidable producer and his major label debut in 2005, Shifting Gears, was given 4 stars by Rolling Stone, and featured appearances from many of Z-Trip’s friends: Chuck D, Chester Bennington of Linkin Park, Murs and Soup of Jurassic 5. It spawned numerous Top 10 singles in the US and abroad.
A lifelong political activist, Z-Trip was a strong supporter of the Barak Obamas successful campaign to become the President of the United States and released Party For Change and Victory Lap in 2009. Both exceeded 500,000 downloads and favorably reviewed by Wired, Urb, BPM, and XLR8R to name a few. Z-Trip’s longtime friend and collaborator Shepard Fairey supplied the art.
After 14 months of sold-out shows at his Friday night headlining residency at Rain inside The Palms, Las Vegas, Z-Trip is taking a rest from his crowd-thrilling stint, Z-Trips Revolution. Upon displaying his genre bending skills and sharing his stage with many A-level guests including Three 6 Mafia, Common, Rev Run, Too Short, and De La Soul, Z-Trip is taking a rest from stage to focus on his next chapter of recorded music.

Glenn Burke’s journey through baseball began and ended in Oakland, California. His sports career had many stops along the way, starting as a multi-sport star at Berkeley High School, followed by a brief stint at the University of Nevada, Reno as a prized basketball recruit, and then moving into professional baseball with the Los Angeles Dodgers, being hailed by one coach as “the next Willie Mays.”
Early in his career, Burke felt he had to hide his true self from his teammates.  Later, when he began to reveal glimpses into his sexuality the baseball establishment began to close him out.  Out. The Glenn Burke Story, a one-hour documentary produced by Comcast SportsNet Bay Area, tells the dramatic tale of Burke’s legacy as the first openly homosexual Major League Baseball player.  From his Major League debut in 1976 and starting Game One of the 1977 World Series for the Dodgers to subsequently being traded to the Oakland Athletics the next season, and then walking away in 1980 from the game that he deeply loved, Comcast SportsNet follows one of baseball’s most dramatic arcs.
Many of Burke’s teammates were aware of his homosexuality during his playing career, as were members of management. And many of those teammates believe that his sexuality – and the reaction it provoked – led to the premature derailment of his baseball career.
Out. The Glenn Burke Story tells the tumultuous story of the wedge that was driven between Burke and the Los Angeles management, the ensuing similar situation in Oakland that led to Burke’s abrupt retirement, and the hero’s welcome that Burke received in San Francisco’s Castro District after he left professional baseball.
Comcast SportsNet’s narrative follows Burke through his public announcement of his homosexuality in a 1982 Inside Sports magazine article (‘The Double Life of a Gay Dodger’) and on The Today Show with Bryant Gumbel, to his subsequent downward spiral to drugs, prison, and eventually living on the same San Francisco streets where he was once hailed as an icon.
Burke’s story took on another level of tragedy when he was diagnosed with AIDS in 1994.  Yet at the end of his life, the game that he claimed abandoned him so many years before reached out to one of its own. The A’s found Burke and provided him with constant support in his final months, as did some of his former teammates.
Glenn Burke passed away on May 30, 1995 at the age of 42 of AIDS-related complications.
Out. The Glenn Burke Story documents the extent of Burke’s courage, strife and friendship throughout his life, and the compassion and callousness of the sport of baseball.  The program weaves together insights from Burke’s teammates and friends, including Dusty Baker, Davey Lopes, Sports Agent Abdul-Jalil, Reggie Smith, Rick Monday, Manny Mota, Rickey Henderson, Claudell Washington, Mike Norris, Shooty Babitt, Tito Fuentes, and former Major Leaguer and gay rights activist Billy Bean.

I have attached the links to a short video documentary about a radio conversation, the live radio broadcasts on November 20, 2010 over ABC Networks’ KGO 810 FM Radio Show and on December 4, 2010 over KNBR- The Sports Leader, 680 AM and ESPN Radio “The Ticket” 1050 AM, of the discussion of the film “OUT. The Glenn Burke Story” The ABC- KGO Radio broadcast was with Shooty Babbitt, John Lambert and myself. The KNBR show was with Doug Harris, the producer of “Out. The Glenn Burke Story” on the show “Law and Sports” with host attorney Ivan Golde, whose also a legal analyst for CNN, Warner Bros- KRON, and CBS-KPIX, among others.
The on-air discussions were about Glenn, the film, society and sports. I think you will be very moved with the overall content and how Glenn’s impact has becoming a serious topic of discussion around the country. Glenn lives on!!!

REVIEWS ON “OUT. THE GLENN BURKE STORY”
Pop Matters.com – ‘Out. The Glenn Burke Story’: That Macho Thing
By Cynthia Fuchs, PopMatters Film and TV Editor, December 1, 2010
 
“You were concerned of being stereotyped or typecast, that to know him must mean that you’re one. So you kept your distance.” A former Dodgers outfielder and coach, Reggie Smith remembers Glenn Burke as a player and friend. But still, he “kept his distance,” as Smith puts it, because Burke was out.
 
Smith’s concern was typical during the 1970s, when Burke played for the Dodgers, a time recounted in Out. The Glenn Burke Story. The documentary, produced by Doug Harris and Sean Madison, re-airs 1 December on Comcast SportsNet Bay Area, and is available as well on DirecTV’s sports pack channel 696 and Dish Network’s multi-sports package channel 419. It tells a story that is remarkable for a number of reasons, not least being Burke’s courage and determination: to this day, he remains the only Major League Baseball player to come out during his professional career.
 
The only one.
 
Out makes clear that Burke’s decision to come out was costly: as teammates struggled with their own feelings (Smith: “At that time, we were a little homophobic about people that were gay”), management was less ambivalent. The Dodgers dealt him to the As in 1977, where manager Billy Martin notoriously called him a “faggot” in front of his teammates. That same year, the A’s sent him down to the minors. Burke retired then, at age 27, despite good stats and an unfinished career.
 
As the film remembers, Burke didn’t talk about the trade or his retirement until 1982, in an interview with Inside Sports magazine (“The Double Life of a Gay Dodger”) and then an interview with Bryant Gumble on Today. The film includes a clip, with Gumble asking, “Were you traded from the Dodgers to the A’s because you were gay?” Burke shifts in his seat, tries not to answer, and then, prodded again (“What do you think?”), he nods, “Yeah.”
 
Out is compelling not only because of Burke’s story, but also because it is still such a difficult story to tell. The images of Burke, once a basketball and baseball star at Berkeley High School, are culled from archival game footage and stills (as well as headlines and baseball cards), and the narrative is structured mostly through new interviews with former teammates, associates, and Burke’s sisters. Repeatedly, the film offers nearly abstract shots of fences, the camera panning low or peering through chain-link obstructions. Sometimes the fences show blurred traffic behind them, sometimes road signs or baseball facilities, and sometimes they’re adorned with a photo of Burke, flapping in a breeze. Always, the fences serve as poignant, ominous emblems of his experience, ever outside.
 
The scanty information on his post-MLB life isn’t helped by the fact that Burke died of AIDS at 42, following a broken leg (when he was hit by a car in the Castro), drug use, jail time, and homelessness. And, if the film doesn’t narrate the point specifically, it does reveal in interviews the raced split in his life: the majority of his MLB teammates here are black, while his post-professional associates, say, softball teammates he met in San Francisco, are white.
 
The film’s visual structure—rudimentary, sometimes awkward—is likely dictated by a lack of available images. But it also makes a compelling point regarding the agonizing, persistent invisibility of gay athletes in the MLB (and the NFL and the NBA: in each professional league, players only come out after they’ve retired). How is it, the film asks implicitly, that homophobia can remain so standard in 2010?
 
Explanations are familiar. In the ‘70s, Oakland A’s right fielder Claudell Washington says, “Being ballplayers, we all had that macho thing going on.” Dusty Baker notes that he considered Burke a friend, but recalls, “Some of the guys on the team, especially some of the Latin guys, would act funny in the shower.” Pondering Burke’s fate in 1977, Davy Lopes observes, “If everybody knows the story, I think, there were other reasons why he was traded.” Smith adds, “I certainly didn’t want to accuse him of that, because one thing’s for sure, at that time period, it was a kiss of death for a ballplayer. He would’ve been excused from the game, so to say.”
 
So to say. Such lack of language shapes Out. Interview subjects share stories of their suspicions or their sympathies, mostly by innuendo: Washington remembers, “Glenn had some guys picking him up in pink Cadillacs” and Oakland Athletics infielder Shooty Babitt reports, “He had a red jock.” Smith says he wondered when he heard Burke “cooing” on a phone call with a man (“I didn’t know if this person had put a woman on the phone, I didn’t know what was going on”). Not everyone is so elusive. Abdul-Jalil al-Hakim remembers a story Burke told in his autobiography, Out at Home: The Glenn Burke Story, when Dodgers management offered him $75,000 to get married. The story is that Burke responded with a question: “I guess you mean to a woman.” Jalil adds, “Glenn took exception to that, refused to do it, and openly dated Tommy Lasorda’s son.” 
 
It’s a funny story, and telling. As the film goes on to underscore Lasorda’s terrible homophobia (he insisted even after his son Spunky’s death that he was not gay), it also marks this moment of resistance as a point of no return for Burke. He lost his job and a certain, important sense of achievement, even as he found another sort of community in San Francisco. Billy Bean, an MLB player who came out after he retired, in 1999 (and is the only other player to be out at all), notes the fear that defines “male team sports.” He also makes clear the price Burke paid. “The closet hurts people forever,” Bean says now. Being forced to leave the game “because you don’t feel like you belong there when you’ve proven that you do, is damaging. And it affects everything.”
 
As U.S. official bodies rethink Don’t Ask Don’t Tell and gay marriage, individual bodies, bodies living real lives, are still feeling the effects of oppression, prejudice, and fear. Glenn Burke’s story helps to expose those effects.

AOL Fan House – Glenn Burke, First Openly Gay MLB Player, Well-Portrayed in Documentary
By Milton Kent, National Reporter, December 1, 2010
 
The professional life of a general manager of a regional sports channel is likely a quiet one, bordering on being nondescript. Basically, you welcome in programming that is already made available to you through corporate means, like games or infomercials or syndicated shows. Or you hire reporters and producers to air about three or so hours of daily news. Nothing exciting to see or do there.
And then, there are execs like Ted Griggs, the vice president and general manager of Comcast SportsNet Bay Area. Griggs, who runs the San Francisco Bay Area channel, gave the green light to a superb documentary, “Out: The Glenn Burke Story,” that airs on the channel Thursday at midnight ET (or 9 p.m. Wednesday PT).
“Out” chronicles the life of Burke, who played for the Dodgers and the A’s in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Burke is presumed to be the first openly gay Major League Baseball player, and the hour-long film deals with Burke’s struggles in aching and painstaking detail, with haunting interviews from noted former teammates like Dusty Baker, Reggie Smith, Davey Lopes and Claudell Washington.
Filmmakers Doug Harris and Sean Maddison, both Bay Area natives, brilliantly use the words of Burke’s friends and family, as well as snippets of interviews with Burke conducted a year before his 1995 death of complications from AIDS, to tell his story. Included in the piece is a segment of his groundbreaking talk with then-Today Show anchor Bryant Gumbel, who interviewed the outfielder after Burke revealed his status in a 1982 story in the now-defunct Inside Sports magazine.
To the lasting credit of Griggs, Harris and Maddison, Burke is portrayed sympathetically, but not as a martyr; a subtle distinction, to be sure, but an important one, and one that raises “Out” from the status of a talking-head movie to an Emmy-quality film worthy of national distribution on Comcast’s outlets.
As it is, viewers outside Northern California can find Comcast SportsNet Bay Area on Direct TV at channel 696 and on Dish Network at channel 419. Comcast Sports Group, part of the NBC Sports Group, consists of 14 local networks that deliver 2,400 sporting events annually and breaking news and analysis to more than 50 million cable and satellite homes.  Comcast Sports Group’s sports networks are: Comcast SportsNet Bay Area, Comcast SportsNet California, Comcast SportsNet Chicago, Comcast SportsNet Mid-Atlantic, Comcast SportsNet New England, Comcast SportsNet Northwest, Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia, SNY, The Mtn. – Mountain West Sports Network, CSS and Comcast Sports Southwest.  Comcast Sports Group also manages NECN (New England Cable News), the nation’s largest regional news network, and The Comcast Network, based in Philadelphia and Washington, which delivers community-oriented programming.  For more information, see ComcastSportsNet.com.

Excerpts from Out. The Glenn Burke Story:
Abdul-Jalil al-Hakim (Childhood friend and sports agent):
On Burke’s homosexuality and the homophobia in Major League Baseball:  “It was uncompromising on both ends.  Glenn was comfortable with who he was. Baseball was not comfortable with who he was.”
Claudell Washington:
On Oakland Athletics manager Billy Martin introducing Burke to his new teammates in spring training:  “He was introducing all the players and then he got to Glenn and said, ‘Oh, by the way, this is Glenn Burke and he’s a faggot.’”
Davey Lopes:
On Burke’s trade to the A’s:  “You don’t break up, disrupt a team going as well as it was going to make changes.  I didn’t feel it was going to make us a better ball club.  Billy North was not going to make us, at that time, any better of a ballclub.  Probably not the real reason why things happened.”
Dusty Baker:
On the rumors of Burke’s sexual preference and his trade to the A’s:  “I think the Dodgers knew; I think that’s why they traded Glenn.”
Reggie Smith:
On the suspicions on Burke’s sexuality:  “I certainly didn’t want to accuse him of that, because one thing’s for sure – at that time period, it was a kiss of death for a ballplayer.  He would’ve been excused from the game, so to say.”
Vincent Trahan (Berkeley High School classmate):
On Dodger management and their suspicions:  “Al Campanis and Walter O’Malley had called him into the office and offered him $75,000 to get married.  And Glenn, being his comic self, said, ‘I guess you mean to a woman?’”
On the Dodgers’ controversial trade of Burke to the A’s:  “He was hurt because they traded him not for his baseball ability but for his life choice.”
Lyle Spencer (MLB.com, former Los Angeles Dodgers beat writer):
On the reaction of Burke’s teammates the day he was traded:  “I was shocked that he was traded… I walked into the clubhouse…and guys were visibly distraught over the trade, and that told me that my sense of how important he was to them internally was accurate.  I even remember a few players crying when they found out about it at their lockers, which is stunning.”

Billy Bean:
On dealing with discrimination:  “The closet hurts people – forever.  Everyone’s career ends, but to do it because you don’t feel you belong there when you’ve proven that you do is damaging.  And it affects everything, and I’m sure that’s why Glenn swam in the waters of drugs and alcohol – to take away his frustration.”

Claudell Washington:
On hearing about Burke contracting AIDS:  “I was stunned at that time. A person that I’d known, loved, and respected had contracted an illness like that and was suffering.”

Lutha Davis (Sister):
On AIDS:  “A lot of people were scared because I think, at the time, you didn’t know whether you can just breathe on somebody and get AIDS or just touch them.”

Pamela Pitts (Oakland A’s Director of Baseball Administration):
On Burke’s reaction to hearing the A’s would help him:  “Glenn started to cry and said, ‘I’ve been told you’re going to help me. I can’t believe someone wants to help me.’”

On Burke’s death: “I do believe he was in a much better place.  His demons were gone.”

Ted Griggs, Vice President and General Manager, Comcast SportsNet Bay Area stated, “As an East Bay native, I knew all about Glenn Burke’s legendary athletic feats at Berkeley High.  I followed his career with the Dodgers and A’s throughout the late seventies, and watched and read with great interest when he came out on The Today Show with Bryant Gumbel and in Inside Sports Magazine.  I was saddened by his tragic death and thought at the time that his was a compelling story that should be told one day.  This documentary allows Glenn’s family, friends, and teammates to tell that story, and it is enhanced with the narration of Dave Morey, one of the most respected voices in Bay Area radio.”

Out.  The Glenn Burke Story is narrated by Morey, who was recently inducted into the Bay Area Radio Hall of Fame in the class of 2010 after 26 years as a morning host at KFOG and nearly 40 years in broadcasting.

Excerpts

Abdul-Jalil al-Hakim – Childhood friend, sports agent:
On Burke’s homosexuality:  “It was uncompromising on both ends.  Glenn was comfortable with who he was. Baseball was not comfortable with who he was.”

On the influence of Burke’s post-baseball friends:  “I think a lot of that dragged him down and that’s when a lot of the demons started to come out because that celebrity that he had, it had another side to it too.”

On Burke’s car accident and injury:  “That might have been one of the factors that led him down that slide too; he had to try to find a way to ease all these pains – physically, psychologically, emotionally, financially.  There became a lot of things that he had to address in his life.”

Shooty Babitt – Former Oakland Athletics infielder, Comcast SportsNet A’s analyst:
On the clubhouse mentality:  “You have to remember back in that day you couldn’t just come out and say ‘I’m gay.’”

On the reaction to Burke around the league:  “They ran him straight out the game.  Now, you’re gay first and a baseball player second, so until you can justify your existence being gay, there’s no way you can get a chance to justify being a major league player.”

On other major leaguers asking about Burke:  “You didn’t really hear people wanting to ask; it was more of a hush-hush thing because of the intimidating guy that Glenn was.”

On Burke’s athletic ability:  “Glenn was like a two sport star. You felt like he had the opportunity to play in the NBA as well as Major League Baseball…you figured that he was going to be a major leaguer right away because that’s just how good that he was.”

Dusty Baker – Former Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder, Cincinnati Reds manager:
On the rumors of Burke’s sexual preference and his trade to the A’s:  “I think the Dodgers knew. And I think that’s why they traded him.”

Billy Bean – Former Major League outfielder, gay rights activist
On Burke in baseball:  “Baseball wasn’t ready for Glenn Burke.  He was a pioneer and he caught them off guard.”

On dealing with discrimination:  “The closet hurts people – forever.  Everyone’s career ends, but to do it because you don’t feel you belong there when you’ve proven that you do is damaging.  And it affects everything, and I’m sure that’s why Glenn swam in the waters of drugs and alcohol – to take away his frustration.”

Marvin Buckley –Berkeley High School basketball teammate:
On Burke’s comedic personality: “He was a cross between Eddie Murphy and Richard Pryor.”

Mark Brown – San Francisco Gay Softball League player:
On Burke after retirement:  “After Glenn lost the baseball business, his life never was the same. And he never could really hold down a job. He had a lot of friends that wanted to help him, that tried to help him but his whole life was built around sports.”

Larry Corrigan – Former Dodgers Minor League teammate, Pittsburgh Pirates executive:
On Burke’s command of the locker room:  “The team was always thought of as the Los Angeles Dodgers but it was Glenn Burke’s team.  The personality of the team was his, the clubhouse was his.  Most people didn’t like the Dodgers…they sure didn’t like the personality that Glenn brought to the ballpark.”

On Burke’s turbulent personality:  “I’m not sure every manager said, ‘Hey, I’ll take Glenn Burke.’ I don’t think they wanted him, because he was a handful.”

On Burke’s personality:  “That’s how strong Glenn’s personality was, that he could take over a Major League clubhouse and he was a rookie.  He hadn’t even played in the big leagues.”

Lutha Davis – Sister:
On Burke’s injured leg:  “His leg was broken in three places and they put a rod in there. They were supposed to replace it but he never went back to get it replaced, so that leg was rotting.”

On AIDS:  “A lot of people were scared because I think at the time you didn’t know whether you can just breathe on somebody and get AIDS or just touch them.”

Tommy Hawkins – Former Los Angeles Dodgers Vice President of Communications & External Affairs, KJAZZ radio announcer:
On Burke’s personality:  “I would describe Glenn like the glistening mirror ball at a discotheque. When the light hits it, and all of these different reflections and colors flash all over the room, that was Glenn Burke.”

Davey Lopes – Former Los Angeles Dodgers infielder, Philadelphia Phillies coach:
On the invention of the “High Five”:  “Me and Dusty always talk about and ask each other who invented the High Five.  And to this day the only guy we can think of is Glenn.”

When a friend told him Burke was gay:  “He just said, ‘I just wanted to tell you. Glenn’s gay.’ And I said, ‘Glenn who? Get the – get outta here.’”

On Burke being traded for A’s Billy North:  “Everybody was upset…He was the guy that kept the chemistry going in the clubhouse…I think if everybody knows the story, I think there were other reasons why he was traded.”

On the Dodgers decision to trade Burke:  “You don’t break up, disrupt a team going as well as it was going to make changes.  I didn’t feel it was going to make us a better ball club.  Billy North was not going to make us, at that time, any better of a ball club.  I thought it was probably not the real reason why things happened.”

Rick Monday – Former Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder, Dodgers broadcaster:
On Burke battling personal and professional demons:  “We didn’t understand the challenges he was going through on a daily basis at the time.  You put it into perspective when you say, here is a guy that is fighting not only the opposing pitcher that was trying to get him out, he was fighting the unknown.”

Mike Norris – Former Oakland Athletics pitcher:
On being in the locker room with Burke: “It became pretty obvious to a lot of people that Glenn was gay and he started to make a lot of people uncomfortable in the locker room and the showers.  It was an uncomfortable situation after awhile.”

On Burke retiring: “Glenn was just in a no-win situation. And that was the best thing for him to do was to retire.”

Pamela Pitts – Oakland Athletics Director of Baseball Administration:
On Burke’s reaction to hearing the A’s would help him:  “Glenn started to cry and said, ‘I’ve been told you’re going to help me. I can’t believe somebody wants to help me.’”

On Burke’s death:  “I do believe he was in a much better place. His demons were gone.”

Richard Purcell – Founder of “Marty’s Place,” an AIDS/HIV patient safe house in San Francisco:
On Burke’s drug use:  “He told me that on the day he was on national TV and he told the truth he was loaded to the gills.”

On Burke becoming alienated from his friends:  “I could see why he turned so many people off. It was the addiction; it wasn’t Glenn.”

Eric Sherman – Author, “Out at Home, The Glenn Burke Story”:
On interviewing Burke:  “I interviewed him…on and off for about maybe a year before he died and even though we had to take breaks every…every 10 minutes or so because of the pain, and the tears, the crying…I’ll never forget I said to him, ‘Glenn, you know we put in two or three days, we don’t have to go on, you don’t have to do this.’”

On Burke’s lifestyle after retirement:  “He ran out of money, then he got involved with drugs. His partying escalated and his drug use escalated.”

Jim Skeels – Burke’s Connie Mack Baseball coach:

On watching Burke play baseball:  “Glenn was the kind of guy that if you looked out in center field, nine times out of ten you’d see a smile on his face, because you could tell he loved playing this game.”

On Burke and gay stereotypes:  “When I looked at Glenn and realized that Glenn had chosen that lifestyle, I said, ‘You just have burst my stereotype.’”

On seeing Burke before he died: “For a man that had answers on the baseball field, on the basketball court, and I think to a great degree with life. And to see him curled up, it was crushing.”

Reggie Smith – Former Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder:
On the suspicions on Burke’s sexuality:  “I certainly didn’t want to accuse him of that, because one thing’s for sure – at that time period, it was a kiss of death for a ballplayer.  He would’ve been excused from the game, so to say.”

On possible consequences of accusing a player of being gay:  “You didn’t want to cause that for a person, but at the same time you didn’t want to say you were closely associated.”

On the suspicion of Burke’s sexuality:  “You were concerned of being stereotyped…that to know him must mean that you’re one…so you kept your distance.”

On Burke’s interview with Inside Sports:  “He made the choice to come out, knowing in his own mind that, as far as playing baseball, his career was pretty much over.”

Lyle Spencer – Former Los Angeles Dodgers beat writer, MLB.com:
On Burke’s charisma:  “I’ve been around a lot of charismatic guys…just in terms of personality, I’ve never been around anybody who could light up a room like Glenn could.”

On the reaction of Burke’s teammates the day he was traded:  “I was shocked that he was traded… I walked into the clubhouse…and guys were visibly distraught over the trade, and that told me that my sense of how important he was to them internally was accurate.  I even remember a few players crying when they found out about it at their lockers, which is stunning.”

Vincent Trahan – Berkeley High School classmate:
On Dodger management and their suspicions:  “Al Campanis and Walter O’Malley had called him into the office and offered him $75,000 to get married. And Glenn, being his comic self, said, ‘I guess you mean to a woman?’”

On the Dodgers’ controversial trade of Burke to the A’s:  “He was hurt because they traded him not for his baseball ability but for his life choice.”

On helping Burke self-medicate with crack cocaine:  “I asked Lutha, ‘I’ve known you all my life…how do you feel with me bringing crack to Glenn?’…and Lutha said to me, ‘It doesn’t bother me. Whatever is giving my brother some type of relief, I’m okay with it.’”

Claudell Washington – Former Major League outfielder:
On Oakland Athletics manager Billy Martin introducing Burke to his new teammates in spring training:  “He was introducing all the players and then he got to Glenn and said, ‘Oh, by the way, this is Glenn Burke and he’s a faggot.’”

On Burke being a loner:  “Glenn was more or less a loner. The only time we ever saw Glenn was at the gym. I don’t know what he did after. We’d finish playing the game and stuff and Glenn was just like a mirage. He was here now and gone later.”

On hearing about Burke contracting AIDS:  “I was stunned at that time. A person that I’d known, loved, and respected had contracted an illness like that and was suffering.”

Marvin Webb – Former Los Angeles Dodgers Minor League teammate:
On Burke’s ability to make new friends:  “Blacks, Whites, Latinos, they all loved Glenn. He got along with everybody.”

On when teammates asked him about Burke: “I’ll tell you this, you ought to ask him. I ain’t never seen him with a woman but you ought to ask him.”

On his drug use:  “I remember hearing about how he started robbing people for drugs and extra money. It really made me feel bad.”

Chuck D GWIZ Team To Advise Industry Of Swag On NOTICE (Know This)

Chuck D of Public Enemy has released a new single, on his 51st birthday no less, which turns out to be a gift to all of us.

Taking inspiration from “Otis”, the new single from Jay-Z and Kanye West, the hard rhymer couldn’t help but feel like they weren’t using their platform to their best ability. A fan of both emcees, Chuck encourages all artists to make the most of their time on the mic and to include substance for the masses.

So as a “request to our rap heroes” Chuck D hooked up with producer Gary G-Wiz to craft a brand new track entitled, “NOTICE Know This” which is now available for free download at RAPstation.com.

Chuck D makes a respectfully call to the troops across the globe, to continue to inspire, but to reflect the people better. As he states himself, “Here’s to hoping that the Jay-Z & Kanye supergroup can elevate the masses and try a little bit more to reflect OTIS’ heart, rather than swag, because they’re too good to be less.”

Click HERE for the baNNed ‘SOPHISTICATED’
Taking a page from SIR George Clinton and his Parliament Funkadelic Tour Experience, the baNNed and its new super funky stealth sounding lineup is starting a 10-15 minute warmup set playing instrumental classic PE songs that will most likely never be performed LIVE. This idea was taken from PFUNKS opener set from the past several years cqlled the Children Of Production, which included guest appearances doing the non set PFUNK songs.

The baNNed cohesion with HipHop legend DAVY DMX on bass, and TBONE Motta aka the Dirty Drummer have complemented prodigal guitarist KHARI WYNN and DJ LORD into a whole new zone. the baNNed recently was recorded in rehearsal tracking the PE classic SOPHISICATED which is also a quirky video found here. The previous baNNed lineup still has a pending album coming on SLAMjamz getting final mixes on ITS BACK TO A MILLION OF US TO HOLD A NATION a instrumental version of IT TAKES A NATION TO HOLD US BACK. The former is being produced by baNNed 5th member DJ JOHNNY JUICE ROSADO its emerging soon on SLAMjamz Records

CHUCK D Seriously Doubts If You’ve Really Checked These Videos OUT!

I say this because I get it coming at me everyday where ever I go, yo..Chuck when you coming out with your next album?

We are in the mass information age, internet, cableTV, satellite, and now pocket programming has saturated everything and anything at all time coming at one brain.

So I understand easily how one could miss the last 15 years of our last 25 , if we’ve been spread around the world and definitely ain’t waiting for U.S.A mass network media to expose our art.

We are not robots and don’t encourage human beings to be robots either. Dig it manually click on the pics to take you to YOU TUBE and SLAMjamz.com to get some sight and sound you might’ve missed…

Herein below is a YouTube video from the Santa Fe Elementary School’s Peace March that was done for the Aaron & Margaret Wallace Foundationthat you can take a look at in it’s rough form. We want to do several of these for the sponsors, including SemiFreddis, Trader Joe’s, Little Caesar’s Pizza, among others.
The day long program began at 9:00 am with a free community breakfast. After breakfast there was a rally, then a march through the neighborhood culminating in a gathering at the school. There were corporate, food and vendor booths with lots of fun things for the children and adults alike at the school yard. The event had the support of Santa Fe Elementary Alumnus, ALL-Americans, NFL All-Pro, NBA World Champions, North Oakland residents, Oakland Tech High School and U. C. Berkeley classmates Marshawn Lynch, Leon Powe and Josh Johnson.
We have some very exciting, great footage with sponsors’ banners proudly and prominently displayed as there was local media coverage throughout the day and a television crew that filmed the entire event for a special broadcast! The real value here is there are PRICELESS shots of the kids walking, running and playing while eating sponsors food, bread and pastries!!! There are several public “Thank You’s” announced during the celebration as well.
We also have more footage taken from other community events that we were involved with that display sponsor banners as well. We did Marshawn Lynch’s “Fam1ly F1rst” Football Camp July 9, 2011 and will do Leon Powe’s “Fresh Start Oakland’s Powe Folk’s Basketball Camp” August 19-21, 2011 at Merritt College in Oakland. Both these two day camps which hosts over 600 youth, are an integral part of a continuing effort to reach and offer alternatives to the under served youth of color in the Oakland- Northern California region to combat some of the maladies that afflict and compromise these youth.
    As an example of this need, the North Oakland Gang Injunction that was recently passed at the behest of ousted former Oakland City Attorney John Russo is a “civil” lawsuit that imposes criminal restrictions on uncharged, unnamed, unknown youth of color whom only alleged “future” crime would be that they live in a certain area of Oakland. If this gang injunction were in place when Marshawn, Leon and Josh were kids, they would be classified as “Gang Members” today just because they live in a certain neighborhood and “know” each other. This “criminal activity” of living in a certain area is intolerable.
All this establishes a corporate presence in the community that evolves organically and spontaneously, that they could not buy! This is a great PR opportunity that they really considered in their Corporate Community Service and Marketing/Promotional efforts. We utilize these banners at other events we support to put something together special for them that will knock their socks off, that will be national in scope and penetration. They will have to approve the use of anything that capture the corporate banners in or create from using the images.
Please give us your opinion.

The 4th Annual NFL All-Pro Marshawn Lynch’s “Fam1ly F1rst Football Camp” will be held July 7-10, 2011 at Oakland Tech High School and Leon Powe’s “Fresh Start Oakland- Powe Folk’s Basketball Camp” will be held August 19-21, 2011 at Merritt College in Oakland.
    These Superstars along with NFL Hall of Famer Jerry Rice, Josh Johnson (QB Tampa Bay), Kirk Morrison Nnamdi Asomugha (Raiders), Raiders quarterback Jason Campbell, receivers Louis Murphy and Darius Heyward-Bey, Langston Walker (OT Raiders), Javid Best (RD Detroit Lions), Terrell Roberts (DB Oregon State/Cincinnati Bengals), Lamont Thompson (DB Washington State/Tennessee Titans), Clarence Martin (DB Fresno State/Angeles Rams), Julian Jenkins (DL Stanford/Tampa Bay Buccaneers), Courtney Anderson of the Raiders, and many national celebrities will hosts these events.
    These camps are an integral part of a continuing effort to reach and offer alternatives to the under served youth of color in the Oakland- Northern California region to combat some of the maladies that afflict and compromise these youth.
    Next is a brief note about the North Oakland Gang Injunction that was recently passed at the behest of ousted former Oakland City Attorney John Russo. This “civil” lawsuit imposes criminal restrictions on uncharged, unnamed, unknown youth of color whom only alleged “future” crime would be that they live in a certain area of Oakland. If this gang injunction were in place when Marshawn, Leon and Josh were kids, they would be classified as “Gang Members” today just because they live in a certain neighborhood and “know” each other. This “criminal activity” of living in a certain area is intolerable.

A&MWF Founder al-Hakim, Marshawn Lynch and Leon Powe to Help Poor, Under Served Youth
The recent Oakland Gang Injunction passed because City Attorney John Russo had the support of the ACLU whom has mobilized organizers to support, not fight it, to the peril of this North Oakland Community!
It has been established through research that this is nothing but another tool for developers to continue exercising gentrification of the Black Community unopposed because of the apathy and lack of leadership in defending the rights of the uncharged and unknown youth! Where is the National Action Network, NAACP, CORE, Rainbow Coalition, or any other national group that alleges to stand for Civil Rights when these youth are being trapped and “Okey Doaked” by the defenders of the public trust?
Every defendant “served”, and I use that term without any credibility under the legal process, with the unconstitutional injunction that has an attorney has been dropped from the matter! But those that were unrepresented were “convicted” in a civil proceeding with criminal implications because they do not have legal representation provided as in a criminal matter! If just one defaults, the system will entrap the rest of the youth population for ever.
Conveniently these liberal civil rights organizations will not represent theses people while filing an Amicus Brief yet venturing into the community with liberal organizers that will benefit from the demise of the youth punished by the injunction to advocate and pre-sell it’s inevitability and lobby for it’s acceptance as a needed measure to fight crime.
Forget about the “double jeopardy” that these youth face in a civil/criminal legal web cast by a deposed City Attorney whom has fabricated and planted that fabricated evidence in a case file, gave the case file to the defendants for nearly a year, and gave the case file to a judge for trial without notifying the court!

The Glenn Burke Story” on Monday, June 20 at 8 p.m. PT.  One-Hour Documentary to Be Broadcast Commercial-Free is nominated for a Northern California Area Emmy Award and a nominee for Outstanding Documentary at the 22nd Annual GLAAD (Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) Media Awards, “Out. The Glenn Burke Story” documents Burke’s legacy as the first openly gay Major League Baseball player.  After the June 20 airing, “Out. The Glenn Burke Story” will re-air on Sunday, June 26 at 9 p.m. and Thursday, June 30 at 2:30 p.m.

Glenn Burke’s journey through baseball began and ended in Oakland, California. His sports career had many stops along the way, starting as a multi-sport star at Berkeley High School, followed by a brief stint at the University of Nevada, Reno as a prized basketball recruit, and then moving into professional baseball with the Los Angeles Dodgers, being hailed by one coach as “the next Willie Mays.”
Early in his career, Burke felt he had to hide his true self from his teammates.  Later, when he began to reveal glimpses into his sexuality the baseball establishment began to close him out.  Out. The Glenn Burke Story, a one-hour documentary produced by Comcast SportsNet Bay Area, tells the dramatic tale of Burke’s legacy as the first openly homosexual Major League Baseball player.  From his Major League debut in 1976 and starting Game One of the 1977 World Series for the Dodgers to subsequently being traded to the Oakland Athletics the next season, and then walking away in 1980 from the game that he deeply loved, Comcast SportsNet follows one of baseball’s most dramatic arcs.
Many of Burke’s teammates were aware of his homosexuality during his playing career, as were members of management. And many of those teammates believe that his sexuality – and the reaction it provoked – led to the premature derailment of his baseball career.
Out. The Glenn Burke Story tells the tumultuous story of the wedge that was driven between Burke and the Los Angeles management, the ensuing similar situation in Oakland that led to Burke’s abrupt retirement, and the hero’s welcome that Burke received in San Francisco’s Castro District after he left professional baseball.
Comcast SportsNet’s narrative follows Burke through his public announcement of his homosexuality in a 1982 Inside Sports magazine article (‘The Double Life of a Gay Dodger’) and on The Today Show with Bryant Gumbel, to his subsequent downward spiral to drugs, prison, and eventually living on the same San Francisco streets where he was once hailed as an icon.

Burke’s story took on another level of tragedy when he was diagnosed with AIDS in 1994.  Yet at the end of his life, the game that he claimed abandoned him so many years before reached out to one of its own. The A’s found Burke and provided him with constant support in his final months, as did some of his former teammates.
Glenn Burke passed away on May 30, 1995 at the age of 42 of AIDS-related complications.
Out. The Glenn Burke Story documents the extent of Burke’s courage, strife and friendship throughout his life, and the compassion and callousness of the sport of baseball.  The program weaves together insights from Burke’s teammates and friends, including Dusty Baker, Davey Lopes, Sports Agent Abdul-Jalil, Reggie Smith, Rick Monday, Manny Mota, Rickey Henderson, Claudell Washington, Mike Norris, Shooty Babitt, Tito Fuentes, and former Major Leaguer and gay rights activist Billy Bean. Out. The Glenn Burke Story Narrated by Dave Morey, Bay Area Broadcasting Icon and Member of the Bay Area Radio Hall of Fame’s Class of 2010
I have attached the links to a short video documentary about a radio conversation, the live radio broadcasts on November 20, 2010 over ABC Networks’ KGO 810 FM Radio Show and on December 4, 2010 over KNBR- The Sports Leader, 680 AM and ESPN Radio “The Ticket” 1050 AM, of the discussion of the film “OUT. The Glenn Burke Story” The ABC- KGO Radio broadcast was with Shooty Babbitt, John Lambert and myself. The KNBR show was with Doug Harris, the producer of “Out. The Glenn Burke Story” on the show “Law and Sports” with host attorney Ivan Golde, whose also a legal analyst for CNN, Warner Bros- KRON, and CBS-KPIX, among others.
The on-air discussions were about Glenn, the film, society and sports. I think you will be very moved with the overall content and how Glenn’s impact has becoming a serious topic of discussion around the country. Glenn lives on!!!

REVIEWS ON “OUT. THE GLENN BURKE STORY”
Pop Matters.com – ‘Out. The Glenn Burke Story’: That Macho Thing
By Cynthia Fuchs, PopMatters Film and TV Editor, December 1, 2010
“You were concerned of being stereotyped or typecast, that to know him must mean that you’re one. So you kept your distance.” A former Dodgers outfielder and coach, Reggie Smith remembers Glenn Burke as a player and friend. But still, he “kept his distance,” as Smith puts it, because Burke was out.
Smith’s concern was typical during the 1970s, when Burke played for the Dodgers, a time recounted in Out. The Glenn Burke Story. The documentary, produced by Doug Harris and Sean Madison, re-airs 1 December on Comcast SportsNet Bay Area, and is available as well on DirecTV’s sports pack channel 696 and Dish Network’s multi-sports package channel 419. It tells a story that is remarkable for a number of reasons, not least being Burke’s courage and determination: to this day, he remains the only Major League Baseball player to come out during his professional career.
The only one.
Out makes clear that Burke’s decision to come out was costly: as teammates struggled with their own feelings (Smith: “At that time, we were a little homophobic about people that were gay”), management was less ambivalent. The Dodgers dealt him to the As in 1977, where manager Billy Martin notoriously called him a “faggot” in front of his teammates. That same year, the A’s sent him down to the minors. Burke retired then, at age 27, despite good stats and an unfinished career.
As the film remembers, Burke didn’t talk about the trade or his retirement until 1982, in an interview with Inside Sports magazine (“The Double Life of a Gay Dodger”) and then an interview with Bryant Gumble on Today. The film includes a clip, with Gumble asking, “Were you traded from the Dodgers to the A’s because you were gay?” Burke shifts in his seat, tries not to answer, and then, prodded again (“What do you think?”), he nods, “Yeah.”
Out is compelling not only because of Burke’s story, but also because it is still such a difficult story to tell. The images of Burke, once a basketball and baseball star at Berkeley High School, are culled from archival game footage and stills (as well as headlines and baseball cards), and the narrative is structured mostly through new interviews with former teammates, associates, and Burke’s sisters. Repeatedly, the film offers nearly abstract shots of fences, the camera panning low or peering through chain-link obstructions. Sometimes the fences show blurred traffic behind them, sometimes road signs or baseball facilities, and sometimes they’re adorned with a photo of Burke, flapping in a breeze. Always, the fences serve as poignant, ominous emblems of his experience, ever outside.
The scanty information on his post-MLB life isn’t helped by the fact that Burke died of AIDS at 42, following a broken leg (when he was hit by a car in the Castro), drug use, jail time, and homelessness. And, if the film doesn’t narrate the point specifically, it does reveal in interviews the raced split in his life: the majority of his MLB teammates here are black, while his post-professional associates, say, softball teammates he met in San Francisco, are white.
The film’s visual structure—rudimentary, sometimes awkward—is likely dictated by a lack of available images. But it also makes a compelling point regarding the agonizing, persistent invisibility of gay athletes in the MLB (and the NFL and the NBA: in each professional league, players only come out after they’ve retired). How is it, the film asks implicitly, that homophobia can remain so standard in 2010?
Explanations are familiar. In the ‘70s, Oakland A’s right fielder Claudell Washington says, “Being ballplayers, we all had that macho thing going on.” Dusty Baker notes that he considered Burke a friend, but recalls, “Some of the guys on the team, especially some of the Latin guys, would act funny in the shower.” Pondering Burke’s fate in 1977, Davy Lopes observes, “If everybody knows the story, I think, there were other reasons why he was traded.” Smith adds, “I certainly didn’t want to accuse him of that, because one thing’s for sure, at that time period, it was a kiss of death for a ballplayer. He would’ve been excused from the game, so to say.”
So to say. Such lack of language shapes Out. Interview subjects share stories of their suspicions or their sympathies, mostly by innuendo: Washington remembers, “Glenn had some guys picking him up in pink Cadillacs” and Oakland Athletics infielder Shooty Babitt reports, “He had a red jock.” Smith says he wondered when he heard Burke “cooing” on a phone call with a man (“I didn’t know if this person had put a woman on the phone, I didn’t know what was going on”). Not everyone is so elusive.
Abdul-Jalil al-Hakim remembers a story Burke told in his autobiography, Out at Home: The Glenn Burke Story, when Dodgers management offered him $75,000 to get married. The story is that Burke responded with a question: “I guess you mean to a woman.” Jalil adds, “Glenn took exception to that, refused to do it, and openly dated Tommy Lasorda’s son.” 
It’s a funny story, and telling. As the film goes on to underscore Lasorda’s terrible homophobia (he insisted even after his son Spunky’s death that he was not gay), it also marks this moment of resistance as a point of no return for Burke. He lost his job and a certain, important sense of achievement, even as he found another sort of community in San Francisco. Billy Bean, an MLB player who came out after he retired, in 1999 (and is the only other player to be out at all), notes the fear that defines “male team sports.” He also makes clear the price Burke paid. “The closet hurts people forever,” Bean says now. Being forced to leave the game “because you don’t feel like you belong there when you’ve proven that you do, is damaging. And it affects everything.”
As U.S. official bodies rethink Don’t Ask Don’t Tell and gay marriage, individual bodies, bodies living real lives, are still feeling the effects of oppression, prejudice, and fear. Glenn Burke’s story helps to expose those effects.

AOL Fan House – Glenn Burke, First Openly Gay MLB Player, Well-Portrayed in Documentary
By Milton Kent, National Reporter, December 1, 2010
The professional life of a general manager of a regional sports channel is likely a quiet one, bordering on being nondescript. Basically, you welcome in programming that is already made available to you through corporate means, like games or infomercials or syndicated shows. Or you hire reporters and producers to air about three or so hours of daily news. Nothing exciting to see or do there.
And then, there are execs like Ted Griggs, the vice president and general manager of Comcast SportsNet Bay Area. Griggs, who runs the San Francisco Bay Area channel, gave the green light to a superb documentary, “Out: The Glenn Burke Story,” that airs on the channel Thursday at midnight ET (or 9 p.m. Wednesday PT).
“Out” chronicles the life of Burke, who played for the Dodgers and the A’s in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Burke is presumed to be the first openly gay Major League Baseball player, and the hour-long film deals with Burke’s struggles in aching and painstaking detail, with haunting interviews from noted former teammates like Dusty Baker, Reggie Smith, Davey Lopes and Claudell Washington.
Filmmakers Doug Harris and Sean Maddison, both Bay Area natives, brilliantly use the words of Burke’s friends and family, as well as snippets of interviews with Burke conducted a year before his 1995 death of complications from AIDS, to tell his story. Included in the piece is a segment of his groundbreaking talk with then-Today Show anchor Bryant Gumbel, who interviewed the outfielder after Burke revealed his status in a 1982 story in the now-defunct Inside Sports magazine.
To the lasting credit of Griggs, Harris and Maddison, Burke is portrayed sympathetically, but not as a martyr; a subtle distinction, to be sure, but an important one, and one that raises “Out” from the status of a talking-head movie to an Emmy-quality film worthy of national distribution on Comcast’s outlets.
As it is, viewers outside Northern California can find Comcast SportsNet Bay Area on Direct TV at channel 696 and on Dish Network at channel 419. Comcast Sports Group, part of the NBC Sports Group, consists of 14 local networks that deliver 2,400 sporting events annually and breaking news and analysis to more than 50 million cable and satellite homes.  Comcast Sports Group’s sports networks are: Comcast SportsNet Bay Area, Comcast SportsNet California, Comcast SportsNet Chicago, Comcast SportsNet Mid-Atlantic, Comcast SportsNet New England, Comcast SportsNet Northwest, Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia, SNY, The Mtn. – Mountain West Sports Network, CSS and Comcast Sports Southwest.  Comcast Sports Group also manages NECN (New England Cable News), the nation’s largest regional news network, and The Comcast Network, based in Philadelphia and Washington, which delivers community-oriented programming.  For more information, see ComcastSportsNet.com.

Excerpts from Out. The Glenn Burke Story:
Abdul-Jalil al-Hakim (Childhood friend and sports agent):
On Burke’s homosexuality and the homophobia in Major League Baseball:  “It was uncompromising on both ends.  Glenn was comfortable with who he was. Baseball was not comfortable with who he was.”
Claudell Washington:
On Oakland Athletics manager Billy Martin introducing Burke to his new teammates in spring training:  “He was introducing all the players and then he got to Glenn and said, ‘Oh, by the way, this is Glenn Burke and he’s a faggot.’”
Davey Lopes:
On Burke’s trade to the A’s:  “You don’t break up, disrupt a team going as well as it was going to make changes.  I didn’t feel it was going to make us a better ball club.  Billy North was not going to make us, at that time, any better of a ballclub.  Probably not the real reason why things happened.”
Dusty Baker:
On the rumors of Burke’s sexual preference and his trade to the A’s:  “I think the Dodgers knew; I think that’s why they traded Glenn.”
Reggie Smith:
On the suspicions on Burke’s sexuality:  “I certainly didn’t want to accuse him of that, because one thing’s for sure – at that time period, it was a kiss of death for a ballplayer.  He would’ve been excused from the game, so to say.”
Vincent Trahan (Berkeley High School classmate):
On Dodger management and their suspicions:  “Al Campanis and Walter O’Malley had called him into the office and offered him $75,000 to get married.  And Glenn, being his comic self, said, ‘I guess you mean to a woman?’”
On the Dodgers’ controversial trade of Burke to the A’s:  “He was hurt because they traded him not for his baseball ability but for his life choice.”
Lyle Spencer (MLB.com, former Los Angeles Dodgers beat writer):
On the reaction of Burke’s teammates the day he was traded:  “I was shocked that he was traded… I walked into the clubhouse…and guys were visibly distraught over the trade, and that told me that my sense of how important he was to them internally was accurate.  I even remember a few players crying when they found out about it at their lockers, which is stunning.”
Billy Bean:
On dealing with discrimination:  “The closet hurts people – forever.  Everyone’s career ends, but to do it because you don’t feel you belong there when you’ve proven that you do is damaging.  And it affects everything, and I’m sure that’s why Glenn swam in the waters of drugs and alcohol – to take away his frustration.”
Claudell Washington:
On hearing about Burke contracting AIDS:  “I was stunned at that time. A person that I’d known, loved, and respected had contracted an illness like that and was suffering.”
Lutha Davis (Sister):
On AIDS:  “A lot of people were scared because I think, at the time, you didn’t know whether you can just breathe on somebody and get AIDS or just touch them.”
Pamela Pitts (Oakland A’s Director of Baseball Administration):
On Burke’s reaction to hearing the A’s would help him:  “Glenn started to cry and said, ‘I’ve been told you’re going to help me. I can’t believe someone wants to help me.’”
On Burke’s death: “I do believe he was in a much better place.  His demons were gone.”
Ted Griggs, Vice President and General Manager, Comcast SportsNet Bay Area stated, “As an East Bay native, I knew all about Glenn Burke’s legendary athletic feats at Berkeley High.  I followed his career with the Dodgers and A’s throughout the late seventies, and watched and read with great interest when he came out on The Today Show with Bryant Gumbel and in Inside Sports Magazine.  I was saddened by his tragic death and thought at the time that his was a compelling story that should be told one day.  This documentary allows Glenn’s family, friends, and teammates to tell that story, and it is enhanced with the narration of Dave Morey, one of the most respected voices in Bay Area radio.”
Out.  The Glenn Burke Story is narrated by Morey, who was recently inducted into the Bay Area Radio Hall of Fame in the class of 2010 after 26 years as a morning host at KFOG and nearly 40 years in broadcasting.

Excerpts

 
Abdul-Jalil al-Hakim – Childhood friend, sports agent:
On Burke’s homosexuality:  “It was uncompromising on both ends.  Glenn was comfortable with who he was. Baseball was not comfortable with who he was.”
 
On the influence of Burke’s post-baseball friends:  “I think a lot of that dragged him down and that’s when a lot of the demons started to come out because that celebrity that he had, it had another side to it too.”
 
On Burke’s car accident and injury:  “That might have been one of the factors that led him down that slide too; he had to try to find a way to ease all these pains – physically, psychologically, emotionally, financially.  There became a lot of things that he had to address in his life.”
 
Shooty Babitt – Former Oakland Athletics infielder, Comcast SportsNet A’s analyst:
On the clubhouse mentality:  “You have to remember back in that day you couldn’t just come out and say ‘I’m gay.’”
 
On the reaction to Burke around the league:  “They ran him straight out the game.  Now, you’re gay first and a baseball player second, so until you can justify your existence being gay, there’s no way you can get a chance to justify being a major league player.”
 
On other major leaguers asking about Burke:  “You didn’t really hear people wanting to ask; it was more of a hush-hush thing because of the intimidating guy that Glenn was.”
 
On Burke’s athletic ability:  “Glenn was like a two sport star. You felt like he had the opportunity to play in the NBA as well as Major League Baseball…you figured that he was going to be a major leaguer right away because that’s just how good that he was.”
 
Dusty Baker – Former Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder, Cincinnati Reds manager:
On the rumors of Burke’s sexual preference and his trade to the A’s:  “I think the Dodgers knew. And I think that’s why they traded him.”
 
Billy Bean – Former Major League outfielder, gay rights activist
On Burke in baseball:  “Baseball wasn’t ready for Glenn Burke.  He was a pioneer and he caught them off guard.”
 
On dealing with discrimination:  “The closet hurts people – forever.  Everyone’s career ends, but to do it because you don’t feel you belong there when you’ve proven that you do is damaging.  And it affects everything, and I’m sure that’s why Glenn swam in the waters of drugs and alcohol – to take away his frustration.”  
 
Marvin Buckley –Berkeley High School basketball teammate:
On Burke’s comedic personality: “He was a cross between Eddie Murphy and Richard Pryor.”
 
Mark Brown – San Francisco Gay Softball League player:
On Burke after retirement:  “After Glenn lost the baseball business, his life never was the same. And he never could really hold down a job. He had a lot of friends that wanted to help him, that tried to help him but his whole life was built around sports.”
 
Larry Corrigan – Former Dodgers Minor League teammate, Pittsburgh Pirates executive:
On Burke’s command of the locker room:  “The team was always thought of as the Los Angeles Dodgers but it was Glenn Burke’s team.  The personality of the team was his, the clubhouse was his.  Most people didn’t like the Dodgers…they sure didn’t like the personality that Glenn brought to the ballpark.”
 
On Burke’s turbulent personality:  “I’m not sure every manager said, ‘Hey, I’ll take Glenn Burke.’ I don’t think they wanted him, because he was a handful.”
 
On Burke’s personality:  “That’s how strong Glenn’s personality was, that he could take over a Major League clubhouse and he was a rookie.  He hadn’t even played in the big leagues.” 

Lutha Davis – Sister:
On Burke’s injured leg:  “His leg was broken in three places and they put a rod in there. They were supposed to replace it but he never went back to get it replaced, so that leg was rotting.”
 
On AIDS:  “A lot of people were scared because I think at the time you didn’t know whether you can just breathe on somebody and get AIDS or just touch them.”  
 
Tommy Hawkins – Former Los Angeles Dodgers Vice President of Communications & External Affairs, KJAZZ radio announcer:
On Burke’s personality:  “I would describe Glenn like the glistening mirror ball at a discotheque. When the light hits it, and all of these different reflections and colors flash all over the room, that was Glenn Burke.”
 
Davey Lopes – Former Los Angeles Dodgers infielder, Philadelphia Phillies coach:
On the invention of the “High Five”:  “Me and Dusty always talk about and ask each other who invented the High Five.  And to this day the only guy we can think of is Glenn.” 
 
When a friend told him Burke was gay:  “He just said, ‘I just wanted to tell you. Glenn’s gay.’ And I said, ‘Glenn who? Get the – get outta here.’”
 
On Burke being traded for A’s Billy North:  “Everybody was upset…He was the guy that kept the chemistry going in the clubhouse…I think if everybody knows the story, I think there were other reasons why he was traded.”
 
On the Dodgers decision to trade Burke:  “You don’t break up, disrupt a team going as well as it was going to make changes.  I didn’t feel it was going to make us a better ball club.  Billy North was not going to make us, at that time, any better of a ball club.  I thought it was probably not the real reason why things happened.”
 
Rick Monday – Former Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder, Dodgers broadcaster:
On Burke battling personal and professional demons:  “We didn’t understand the challenges he was going through on a daily basis at the time.  You put it into perspective when you say, here is a guy that is fighting not only the opposing pitcher that was trying to get him out, he was fighting the unknown.”
 
Mike Norris – Former Oakland Athletics pitcher:
On being in the locker room with Burke: “It became pretty obvious to a lot of people that Glenn was gay and he started to make a lot of people uncomfortable in the locker room and the showers.  It was an uncomfortable situation after awhile.”
 
On Burke retiring: “Glenn was just in a no-win situation. And that was the best thing for him to do was to retire.”
 
Pamela Pitts – Oakland Athletics Director of Baseball Administration:
On Burke’s reaction to hearing the A’s would help him:  “Glenn started to cry and said, ‘I’ve been told you’re going to help me. I can’t believe somebody wants to help me.’”
 
On Burke’s death:  “I do believe he was in a much better place. His demons were gone.”
 
Richard Purcell – Founder of “Marty’s Place,” an AIDS/HIV patient safe house in San Francisco:
On Burke’s drug use:  “He told me that on the day he was on national TV and he told the truth he was loaded to the gills.”
 
On Burke becoming alienated from his friends:  “I could see why he turned so many people off. It was the addiction; it wasn’t Glenn.”
 
Eric Sherman – Author, “Out at Home, The Glenn Burke Story”:
On interviewing Burke:  “I interviewed him…on and off for about maybe a year before he died and even though we had to take breaks every…every 10 minutes or so because of the pain, and the tears, the crying…I’ll never forget I said to him, ‘Glenn, you know we put in two or three days, we don’t have to go on, you don’t have to do this.’”
 
On Burke’s lifestyle after retirement:  “He ran out of money, then he got involved with drugs. His partying escalated and his drug use escalated.”
 
Jim Skeels – Burke’s Connie Mack Baseball coach:

On watching Burke play baseball:  “Glenn was the kind of guy that if you looked out in center field, nine times out of ten you’d see a smile on his face, because you could tell he loved playing this game.”
 
On Burke and gay stereotypes:  “When I looked at Glenn and realized that Glenn had chosen that lifestyle, I said, ‘You just have burst my stereotype.’”
 
On seeing Burke before he died: “For a man that had answers on the baseball field, on the basketball court, and I think to a great degree with life. And to see him curled up, it was crushing.”
 
Reggie Smith – Former Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder:
On the suspicions on Burke’s sexuality:  “I certainly didn’t want to accuse him of that, because one thing’s for sure – at that time period, it was a kiss of death for a ballplayer.  He would’ve been excused from the game, so to say.”
 
On possible consequences of accusing a player of being gay:  “You didn’t want to cause that for a person, but at the same time you didn’t want to say you were closely associated.”
 
On the suspicion of Burke’s sexuality:  “You were concerned of being stereotyped…that to know him must mean that you’re one…so you kept your distance.” 
 
On Burke’s interview with Inside Sports:  “He made the choice to come out, knowing in his own mind that, as far as playing baseball, his career was pretty much over.”
 
Lyle Spencer – Former Los Angeles Dodgers beat writer, MLB.com:
On Burke’s charisma:  “I’ve been around a lot of charismatic guys…just in terms of personality, I’ve never been around anybody who could light up a room like Glenn could.”
 
On the reaction of Burke’s teammates the day he was traded:  “I was shocked that he was traded… I walked into the clubhouse…and guys were visibly distraught over the trade, and that told me that my sense of how important he was to them internally was accurate.  I even remember a few players crying when they found out about it at their lockers, which is stunning.”
 
Vincent Trahan – Berkeley High School classmate:
On Dodger management and their suspicions:  “Al Campanis and Walter O’Malley had called him into the office and offered him $75,000 to get married. And Glenn, being his comic self, said, ‘I guess you mean to a woman?’”  
 
On the Dodgers’ controversial trade of Burke to the A’s:  “He was hurt because they traded him not for his baseball ability but for his life choice.”
 
On helping Burke self-medicate with crack cocaine:  “I asked Lutha, ‘I’ve known you all my life…how do you feel with me bringing crack to Glenn?’…and Lutha said to me, ‘It doesn’t bother me. Whatever is giving my brother some type of relief, I’m okay with it.’”
 
Claudell Washington – Former Major League outfielder:
On Oakland Athletics manager Billy Martin introducing Burke to his new teammates in spring training:  “He was introducing all the players and then he got to Glenn and said, ‘Oh, by the way, this is Glenn Burke and he’s a faggot.’”
 
On Burke being a loner:  “Glenn was more or less a loner. The only time we ever saw Glenn was at the gym. I don’t know what he did after. We’d finish playing the game and stuff and Glenn was just like a mirage. He was here now and gone later.”
 
On hearing about Burke contracting AIDS:  “I was stunned at that time. A person that I’d known, loved, and respected had contracted an illness like that and was suffering.” 
 
Marvin Webb – Former Los Angeles Dodgers Minor League teammate:
On Burke’s ability to make new friends:  “Blacks, Whites, Latinos, they all loved Glenn. He got along with everybody.” 
 
On when teammates asked him about Burke: “I’ll tell you this, you ought to ask him. I ain’t never seen him with a woman but you ought to ask him.” 
 
On his drug use:  “I remember hearing about how he started robbing people for drugs and extra money. It really made me feel bad.”

Vivian Green

Growing up in the East Oak Lane section of Philadelphia, Vivian Green’s musical talents emerged early in life. After receiving early training as a classical pianist and vocalist, she gained invaluable experience performing in jazz clubs, weddings and corporate functions. By covering songs by Celine Dion, Barbra Streisand, Whitney Houston, Chaka Khan, Donna Summer, and Aretha Franklin, among others, Vivian strengthened her vocal range. She recorded demos of her own compositions through her teen years, and received her first professional songwriting credit when Boyz II Men recorded her “Dear God” on their platinum-selling album Evolution.

Vivian’s increasing notoriety helped to win her a record deal with Sony Music, which released her debut album A Love Story in 2002. That disc spawned the urban AC/dance hits “Emotional Rollercoaster” and “Fanatic,” and established Vivian as one of the year’s most celebrated new artists. After a three-year recording hiatus, during which she gave birth to a son, she broke new musical ground on her second album Vivian, which produced the number one AC/dance singles “Gotta Go, Gotta Leave” and “I Like it But I Don’t Need It.” Vivian won rave reviews in such outlets as People, Rolling Stone and The New York Times, which described the album as “a stellar sophomore accomplishment.” Touring to support her first two albums, Vivian won a reputation as a riveting live performer, sharing stages with such artists as Maxwell, Teena Marie, Betty Wright, Chaka Khan, Betty Wright, Q-Tip, Anthony Hamilton, and Common.

In 2003, Vivian made her film debut, portraying Billie Holiday and performing the Holiday classic “Love for Sale” in the Oscar-nominated Cole Porter biopic De-Lovely. Two years later, she appeared in the TV series American Dreams, playing the role of Brenda Holloway and singing Holloway’s Motown hit “Every Little But Hurts.” Vivian wrote the music for David E. Talbert’s popular all-star stage play Love in the Nick of Tyme, which debuted in 2007. Also in 2007, she guested on Guru’s album Jazzmatazz Vol. 4 and Cyndi Lauper’s The Body Acoustic.

Vivian Green’s varied musical and personal experiences are reflected in the personally charged, effortlessly soulful music she makes on Beautiful. “As we get older,” she notes, “we get wiser and stronger and more secure in who we are. That’s definitely been true for me, and I hope that it comes through in the music I make.”

Eric Roberson
Inspiring, humble, eclectic, and daring…a leader, an entrepreneur, an innovator, and an outstanding story teller…These are just a few of the words that describe Blue Erro Soul’s acclaimed singer, songwriter, and producer, Eric Roberson. For the past fifteen years, Roberson, also known as “Erro” by adoring family, friends, and fans, has remained a prevalent force in today’s music. Elements ranging from Soul, Rhythm & Blues, House, Hip-Hop and more can be detected throughout Roberson’s original and contemporary sound- not allowing him to be confined or limited to any one of these genres. His music is personal, poetic, positive and progressive. It is classic music presented in an untraditional fashion. Eric Roberson has truly established himself as a leader in Independent music, refusing to fit into any mold, but creating a path of success of his own to follow.
With a multifaceted body of work heard more often than many realize, “Erro” has earned the great respect and admiration of his peers and fans. Recognized for his undeniable talents, he became the first independent artist to be nominated for a BET Award in 2007 and was the recipient of the Underground Artist of the Year BETJ Virtual Award with Rahsaan Patterson in 2008. Roberson has worked along the side of, as well as written for, many established producers and artists; some of whom include DJ Jazzy Jeff, Osulande, Jill Scott, Musiq, Carl Thomas, Vivian Green, and Will Smith.
Roberson’s latest project, Music Fan First, is a celebration of the ultimate partnership between music and its fans. His seventh album contains over an hour and 15 minutes of nonstop music presented in 17 new songs. The CD artwork is a 28-page tribute to music and its faithful followers, including over 700 pictures of music fans from all over the world, who submitted photos. With features by musical friends such as Lalah Hathaway, T3 of Slum Village, Wayna and several others, the award-winning singer/songwriter/producer held nothing back in creating the musical portrait he had in his head.
Released in late summer 2009, Music Fan First debuted at #5 on the ITunes R&B/Soul Charts, entered the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart at #91 for the song “Borrow You”, and at #84 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart for the album. And most deservingly, the song “A Tale of Two” off of Music Fan First has been nominated for a 2010 Grammy Award for Best Urban/Alternative Performance, an amazing accomplishment for an Independent artist.

A True Blues Legend

Born January 27, 1930, Rosemark, Tennessee. Moved to Memphis 1948. Played with Billy ‘Red’ Love and other influential Delta musicians. First recording was Dry Up Baby (Modern 848). Entered Armed Services 1952, joined Johnny Ace Revue after discharge, having signed with Duke Records. First smash hit, It’s My Life Baby, 1955 followed by years of consistent success in R&B market.
In the 50s and early 60s, Bobby “Blue” Bland was one of the main creators of the modern soul-blues sound. Along with such artists as Sam Cooke, Ray Charles, and Junior Parker, Bland developed a sound that mixed gospel with blues and R&B. Bobby’s style of soul-blues was punctuated with a big-band sound and slick, B.B. King-flavored guitar riffs.
Bland was born and raised in Rosemark, a small town just outside Memphis. In 1947 he moved to the city with his mother and began his career, first as a singer in the gospel group the Miniatures, then in the loosely knit blues group the Beale Streeters, which included such future blues stars as Johnny Ace, B.B. King, Junior Parker, and Rosco Gordon .
Bland’s first recordings were from 1950 to 1952, when he cut sides for the Modern and Chess labels. Being drafted into the army in 1952 put his career on hold, but shortly after his discharge in 1954, he began a long-term relationship with Duke Records. This would result in dozens of records, many of them big sellers in the R&B market.
Bobby’s first Duke single, “It’s My Life, Baby,” was released in 1955. Two years later, he scored with the seminal Texas shuffle “Farther Up The Road” (115 k, 10 sec.), which went to number 1 on the R&B charts. Follow-up records included two 1961 hits, “I Pity the Fool,” which also made it to number 1 on the R&B charts, and “Turn on Your Love Light,” which went to number 2. “That’s the Way Love Is,” a 1963 release, gave Bland his third number 1 hit.
From 1957 to 1961 Bland played the chitlin’ circuit with Junior Parker and his band, the Blue Flames. But in 1961 Bland broke with Parker, went out on his own, and rose to his greatest popularity. Because Bland neither composed nor played an instrument, he relied on others for songs and inspired instrumentation. Joe Scott, his bandleader and arranger, and for years one of Duke label owner Don Robey’s chief talent scouts, helped create Bland’s big-band sound. Just as important to Bland’s sound was guitarist Wayne Bennett, who complemented the horns and Bland’s vocals with jazz-influenced solos,a la T-Bone Walker and B.B. King.
Bland worked with Scott and Bennett until 1968 when the band broke up, partially the result of Bland’s alleged alcohol problems. But Bland resuscitated his career in 1972, this time with producer Steve Garrie and bandleader Ernie Fields, Jr. Rather than dwell on R&B ballads, Garrie gave Bland a blues-based sound that resulted in two of his more commercially successful albums: California Album (1973) and Dreamer (1974). Both works were released on the ABC-Dunhill label, the company that purchased Duke in 1972.
Despite Bland’s extensive recording catalogue, his long-term success on the R&B charts, and his near-constant touring (often with longtime friend B.B. King), he rarely crossed over into the pop realm. Dozens of blues and R&B influenced rock vocalists, however, have credited Bland as a main influence. Throughout the 70s, 80s, and early 90s, he continued to record, mostly for the Jackson, Mississippi, blues label, Malaco. Bland was inducted into the Blues Foundation’s Hall of Fame in 1981 and the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1992. He continues to perform regularly.

Rapper, DJ, and producer Pete Rock first emerged in 1991 as one half of a duo with C.L. Smooth, debuting with the All Souled Out EP. A hit LP, Mecca and the Soul Brother, followed before the two went their separate ways in the wake of 1994’s The Main Ingredient, with Rock remaining a prolific studio presence prior to the release of his solo debut, Soul Survivor, on Loud/RCA four years later. Dropped from the label, he continued his career as an independent producer, and later signed to Rapster/BBE in 2001 for PeteStrumentals. Two years later, the label released a two-part compilation of mid-’90s LPs with Lost and Found. In 2004, Rock produced the sequel to his debut, Soul Survivor II, with features coming from Pharoahe Monch, Dead Prez, Talib Kweli, and former partner C.L. Smooth. During the next few years, Rock focused on producing for other artists, including Edo G and Ghostface Killah, releasing his next solo album, NY’s Finest, in early 2008. – Jason Ankeny, Rovi

Oakland City Attorney John Russo’s Proposed Gang Injunction is a tool for Gentrification
SAY NO TO JOHN RUSSO!

OAKLAND CITY ATTORNEY JOHN RUSSO’S PROPOSED GANG INJUNCTION IS DECEPTIVE AND WRONG

Oakland City Attorney John Russo in his recent plea to implement a Gang Injunction in Oakland’s Fruitvale District hastily used the recent criminal charge of Attempted Residential Robbery upon Fruitvale resident and named Gang Injunction defendant Anthony Garcia.  In their latest arguments in support of why Oakland needs another Gang Injunction,  Garcia’s arrest was used to help sway Judge Robert Freedman to grant their requested relief. Turns out Garcia’s arrest and the resulting charge were frivolous. Prosecutors learned the statement given by Garcia’s neighbor to police was fraudulent; the neighbor said he had no idea what he was signing onto. Whether limited English or police coercion lies at the crux of the matter, the complaint given to police was recanted and charges were dropped. Not so fast, a serious charge, remains on Garcia’s record. With overzealous police and prosecutorial error at work against Garcia and others, can Judge Freedman honestly decide in favor of granting outgoing Oakland City Attorney John Russo another injunction? More to come on Freedman and why his court was likely selected by Russo. The San Francisco Chronicle’s Henry Lee reported the error in the Sunday paper, 5-15-11.

While a conviction is a more serious mark on one’s record than a recanted charge, a charge can sometimes be just as damning. It is all some potential employers rely upon to differentiate when hiring prospective employees. This mistake is not uncommon but apologies are most rare. A District Attorney should normally rely upon Probable Cause in deciding whether to file charges against an alleged criminal but is protected with immunity when a mistake is made. Never mind the six weeks Garcia spent in jail behind this frivolous arrest.  A criminal record could prevent Garcia, 29 from certain employment opportunities for the rest of his working adult life. He now has the daunting task of trying to recapture some semblance of normalcy in his life. Just ask Osha Neumann of the East Bay Community Law Center in Berkeley about the ongoing need for a “Clean Slate” program. His organization is consistently serving individuals who want to move on in their lives and yet because of criminal records cannot seem to do so otherwise.

At the heart of a Gang Injunction is usually an overreaching District Attorney and unfettered police power determined to gentrify a targeted area. At first blush what would appear an efficient crime fighting tool to clean streets and rid our communities of gang activity deceptively paves the way for real estate developers to curry favor with bankers to invigorate a sluggish housing market. This reality proves all too costly as Anthony Garcia’s rights are trampled upon. Contemplate the future untold costs of this stain on his record. In her best selling book, “The New Jim Crow,” author and attorney Michelle Alexander outlines the inability of former convicts to ever regain full citizenship. With criminal records in tow, an ex-con is unduly prevented from regaining full citizenship which includes voting in most states. The U.S. Constitution and the tenet that one can pay their debt to society and receive full re-integration is now a myth.

States bear a costly burden in creating a permanent underclass of fringe citizens.  To illustrate, in California a bill is currently before the legislature that aims to reduce our inmate population by granting medical parole to inmates who no longer pose a threat to society. If this bill passes, our state will save millions. It is simple, inmates with severe medical issues and the attendant costs to care and police them could be eligible for medical parole. However, tough on crime advocates want all prisoners to rot in prison no matter how high the price.Kudos to Mark Leno for introducing this bill because this model is so last century and is not working.   However, the Smart on Crime policy Attorney General Kamala Harris propagates is the better approach because it is too easy to throw the baby out with the bath water. We cannot expect different results using the same failed policies. Gang Injunctions have been tried in numerous jurisdictions only to fail. As Oakland fights rising crime, a sluggish real estate market and too few jobs or opportunities for its youth, Gang Injunctions are a waste of scarce taxpayer dollars that could be put to better use. To be sure Gang Injunctions are a sure way ameliorate problems on the surface but leave untold consequences. Just ask Garcia and the other named defendants who will not find it easy to recover.

In this unfortunate marriage between the Oakland Police Department, District Attorney and the Oakland City Attorney, which entity will attempt to remedy this huge transgression upon Garcia or the public trust? Most agencies will not admit mistakes even when made public. As Garcia picks up the pieces of his life, a public apology is in order but waiting for public officials to do the right thing is quite another matter. Time might be better spent questioning the many Affidavits signed by OPD officers as part of the  City Attorney’s case for the Gang Injunctions. Oakland could learn something from it’s neighbor across the bay. In San Francisco dozens of criminal convictions were recently overturned after the alert San Francisco Public Defender Jeff Adachi discovered the faulty procedures used in crime laboratories to gain illegal convictions.

A conviction much like a Gang Injunction, is only as legal as the foundation upon which it rests. Some Oakland Police Officers are not strangers to lies, innuendos or deceit; just check the many lawsuits that continue to be paid out to unfortunate victims at the hands of rouge cops. This is why the Affidavits signed by OPD officers should have been the first place Garcia’s defense attorney Siegel should have looked when preparing his defense. Who is Siegel and why is he representing Garcia and others to their peril? Early on Siegel admitted that he made a mistake causing over fifty defendants to lose representation. Though a procedural error, all it takes for an Injunction to be granted is the conviction of one defendant. When KPFA radio broadcaster and producer Nadra Foster was beaten by twelve or so Berkeley Police Officers a couple of years ago, it was Siegel’s father, Dan Siegel also an attorney and KPFA station board member who lauded KPFA management for calling the police on her while her daughters looked on. She was told to leave the building and did not understand the reason for the request. She is still suffering injuries as a result of the severe beating. Siegel appears to have overlooked pages of Affidavits signed by several OPD officers, many of which live outside of Oakland, swear that these named defendants are gang members who committed crimes, that they are menaces to society and they should be punished. Curious to note however, the Affidavits themselves are repetitive – cut and pasted text with recycled facts according to Oakland Police Officer Frank Morrow who refused to sign on when presented with one. The entire process is flawed as ever which is probably why a Federal Judge called a meeting with Police Administration and the City of Oakland in April 2011 to force the terms of the settlement intended to clean up that department that followed the infamous “Riders” scandal and trial.

As Oakland City Attorney John Russo leaves Oakland for Alameda with two Gang Injunctions possibly three under his belt and a couple of minority owned businesses he was instrumental in closing, he is poised to develop the Alameda Naval Air Base. The three Alameda City Council Members who elected Russo after he campaigned and donated money to help get them elected have their work cut out in trying to diminish their direct conflicts of interest. Alamedans should have taken cues from the corrupt Southern California town of Belle and its City Manger, Robert Rizzo who was charged with taking 5.5 million from working class residents.  The small minority owned business in Oakland and Alameda shut down by incoming Alameda City Manager John Russo that used to help people prepare legal documents now runs a food donation program that provides free food to the hungry.

As for Oakland, the fate of the Fruitvale District and its proposed Gang Injunction now rests with Judge Robert Freedman who is no stranger to controversy. Once subject to disbarment by the Judicial Council of California, the Administrative Agency charged with holding judges honest was once cited for filing false Affidavits and received probation. Apparently this was not enough to place him on the fringes of society but what of Garcia and the North Oakland residents and all the others subject to the whims of society’s current displeasure of disposable immigrants and people of color in general? If Garcia is to be considered more than a pawn for real estate developers; his case is a clarion call for the masses to wake up.

Gang Injunctions are part of a larger dilemma; class warfare, immigration, equal protection of the laws, civil rights and the tolling that unfettered police power and gentrification has upon society. An Oakland City Council meeting is scheduled for May 17, 2011 [May 17 marks the anniversary of the landmark Civil Rights victory that ended U.S. Apartheid, Brown v Board of Education] which could heavily influence the outcome of the next court hearing, scheduled for May 24, 2011.

Oakland City Attorney Fraud, Solicitation Perjurious Testimony in Affidavits for Gang Injunction!
    The leak of information on Oakland City Attorney John Russo’s extrinsic fraud, subornation of perjurious testimony and solicitation of perjurious testimony in witness affidavits for the Oakland Gang Injunction litigation is turning into a flood as there appears to be truth in the allegation. It has been rumored that witnesses complained that the affidavits were prepared for their signature without their approval containing inaccurate information, misleading facts, and mis-characterizing statements that were maliciously, willfully and intentionally false. Witness could not change the affidavit and felt they were slighted and perhaps retaliated against when they complained about it. There were other complaints about Russo’s tactics in recent matters as well. 
    The crooked City Attorney was involved in fabricating and planted that fabricated evidence in the al-Hakim insurance case file, gave the case file to the defendants for nearly a year, and then gave the altered case file to a judge for trial without notifying the court!
Abdul-Jalil al-Hakim filed a complaint with Congresswoman Barbara Lee, State Assemblyman Sandre Swanson, Alameda County Supervisor Kieth Carson, Oakland California Mayor Ron Dellums, Oakland City Administrator Dan Lindheim, Oakland City Auditor Courtney Ruby, Oakland City Councilpersons Desley Brooks and Larry Reid’s offices against Oakland City Attorney John Russo, Mark Morodomi, Randy Hall, Janie Wong, Anita Hong, Sophia Li, Demetruis Shelton- current President of the National Bar Association, Elizabeth Allen, Erica Harrold, Michele Abney, Eliada Perez; former Oakland and current San Leandro City Attorney Jayne Williams; former Oakland City employee Pat Smith; Stephan Barber and others of the law firm Ropers, Majeski; Ronald J. Cook, Randy Willoughby, Alex Stuart, Annette Bening’s brother Bradley Bening and others of the law firm Willoughby, Stuart & Bening; for constructing fraudulent fabricated evidence in 1999 and planting that evidence favorable to the defendants in the case files SIX years AFTER the case was closed; engaged in spoliation of remaining evidence in the court files from 1991; and fostered witness testimony based on this planted evidence in the al-Hakim v CSAA and the underlying Rescue Rooter case that was created thru EXTRINSIC FRAUD with accompanying testimony procured thru admitted suborned and solicited perjurious acts by John Russo and others, they engaged in actions to destroy the litigation of al-Hakim’s legal case; they engaged in actions to coverup their unlawful acts.

“Video of Oakland City Attorney Gives Defendants Case File, Doesn’t Tell Court or Plaintiff’s- Given To Stephan Barber and Law Firm Ropers Majeski”

    This comes on the heels of a very embarrassing, very public spat with new Oakland Mayor Jean Quan and Russo taking personally abusive verbal shots at each other with Russo scorning the mayor for what he called a risky legal relationship with another attorney and Quan firing back at Russo for releasing his legal advice to the media before discussing it with her.  
“Russo Tends to Attack by Press Release” Oakland Mayor Jean Quan
    “The problem is that John Russo tends to attack by press release,” Quan said, and complained that he issued his letter while she was still in Washington, D.C., where she attended U.S. Conference of Mayors meetings and also met with White House officials.
    Quan said Russo had created a conflict of interest by releasing his advice to the media when he did. “As the City Attorney giving advice to the Mayor, he has the duty of confidentiality and the duty of loyalty to his client. He broke that confidentiality by his actions,” Quan said in a written statement. “This is exactly why the Mayor’s Office and the City Council Offices have considered seeking independent, outside counsel. The City Attorney is the City’s only attorney,” Russo wrote in the letter he released. 
    Quan denied sharing any confidential city information with an attorney and friend who has been advising her, saying City Attorney John Russo’s suggestion that she may be spilling secrets was “frankly, insulting.”
That claim is false according to him, as Russo did not bring his concerns to Quan privately before alerting the media — Russo argued in a letter he sent to Quan, other city leaders and local media that the city attorney is the mayor’s only permissible attorney, so any information Quan shares with anyone other than Russo and those in his office — is not protected and can be subpoenaed, threatening the city’s standing in a host of legal scenarios and taking on another attorney, especially one connected to a fight against the city, is breaking the City Charter and creates a conflict of interest. 
    “We have a city attorney who is elected and so sometimes has his own political agenda,” Quan said. 
“I’m caught in the middle, and I’m sorry about that.” 
    “This is a uniquely obnoxious violation of the charter because he’s in the middle of this,” Russo said. “I should be able to brief (Quan) on the strengths and weaknesses of our cases. If she’s going to turn around and give that to our opponents, how am I supposed to do my job?” “What the mayor has done here,” Russo added, “is put my office in a very awkward position where we’re not sure we can give confidential information to Mayor Quan. You should never be in that position with the CEO of the corporation.” “Violation of the City Charter is a crime,” Russo wrote in closing. “It is now incumbent on you to uphold your oath to defend the Charter.” 
    Quan, a longtime adversary of Russo from his days on the Council, feels concerned as the public see’s Russo has overstepped his boundary by pursuing the injunction without endorsement from the city council or the mayor in his continuing quest to be the De-Facto mayor. There is a question about what is the authority of the city attorney to bring these cases without the authorization of city council and the Mayor.”

al-Hakim, Marshawn Lynch and Leon Powe to Help Poor, Under Served Youth

al-Hakim has mobilized attorney’s to represent these poor, under served youth and secured ALL-Americans, NFL All-Pro, NBA World Champions, North Oakland residents, Oakland Tech High School and U. C. Berkeley classmates Marshawn Lynch and Leon Powe along with several native Oakland celebrities to join national celebrities in this fight! Through the collaboration of the individuals, Powe’s “Fresh Start Oakland”, Lynch’s Fam1ly F1rst”, the Aaron & Margaret Wallace Foundation, and others, we will provide the much needed alternatives to these profiled youth to succeed in life and not be eliminated from it because some developers want their families property and them out the neighborhood. 

Here’s some links to Leon Powe’s “Fresh Start Oakland”

WE MUST ACT NOW to end this travesty ASAP!

Oakland Marijuana Ordinance
There’s also a marijuana ordinance in front of city council that is endorsed by “Johnny Potty” Russo. He picked up that handle because of his penchant for doing video interviews in the restroom “potty” with another man, not to mention the weed endorsement. Does the citizens of Oakland really want a crooked City Attorney who drives around with his kids in the car without their seat belts on, wants to legalize smoking weed and gives video interviews in the bathroom with another man? The unfortunate part about this episode is Mayor Quan’s adviser has also been busted for marijuana so everything is up in smoke!
    A court hearing that could result in the implementation of the injunction is scheduled for February 16, 2011 before admitted and convicted liar, the embattled Judge Robert Freedman.

Judge Robert Freedman’s Misconduct Warranted His Removal from Office
    al-Hakim filed a formal complaint on April 11, 2008 and April 14, 2008 with both the Judicial Council and Superior Court against Judge Tigar for his attempt at provoking al-Hakim at a side bar during trial. al-Hakim received a one sentence response dated September 26, 2008 from Victoria Henley stating that “your submission does not provide a basis for commission proceedings”. al-Hakim received a letter dated April 15, 2008 from then Presiding Judge Yolanda Northridge acknowledging receipt of the complaint referring the matter to the Supervising Judge, Robert Freedman for review but has gotten no response as promised. 
    No one should be surprised because Judge Freedman has had his own well documented problems with honesty by willfully and intentionally filing false, perjurious and deceiving documents and affidavits regrading the timeliness in the administration of his duties in order to get paid and was issued a public reprimand. 
    In June 2007 The Commission on Judicial Performance publicly censured Alameda Superior Court Judge Robert J. Freedman for violating rules of conduct by failing to decide cases on time and falsely swearing that he was keeping up with time limits. 
Judge Freedman’s misconduct was of such gravity as to warrant his removal from office, the commission said, but the presence of mitigating evidence justified reducing the punishment to a “severe public censure.” You can read and/or download the article on Judge Freeman’s Censure at: http://www.box.net/shared/5n0tt72rbt
    The commission adopted factual findings made by a panel of special masters, who found by clear and convincing evidence that Freedman delayed rulings in 21 of the 23 cases over which he was charged in a notice of formal proceedings last May. 
It also agreed with the panel that Freedman, as accused in the notice, regularly signed and submitted false salary affidavits to the county during times when he was aware his rulings were overdue. He has a checkered past in al-Hakim’s case as well. 
    At one hearing in that matter he openly stated bias, prejudice, voiced a fixed opinion of al-Hakim and having an improper ex-parte communications regarding al-Hakim and his case while using such information to hold al-Hakim to a higher legal standard than that of the opposing counsel in the case as a guise for sanctioning al-Hakim for it. al-Hakimis convinced and Freedman’s three years of delay demonstrate that he will not seriously review nor is he capable of impartially or fairly judging this matter, even for review.

Russo’s Interest in Real Estate Firm
    Is there any truth to the allegation that Russo has an interest in a real estate firm? It is widely acknowledged that the Gang Injunctions are nothing but another tool for developers to continue exercising gentrification of the Black/Latino Communities unopposed because of the apathy and lack of leadership in defending their rights from the so-called leaders! Where are the national groups that alleges to stand for Civil Rights when the minority communities are being raped and “Okey Doaked” by the “white liberal” defenders of the public trust?

The Merits of The Gang Injunction
    The University of California, Berkeley – School of Law’s Center for Criminal Justice cites nationwide statistics that overwhelming prove Gang Injunctions are ineffective in all jurisdictions.
The following are but a few reasons cited by the legal community on why Russo’s proposed injunction should not be granted:
·        At a time when California’s budget is in a record crisis, does Oakland have resources to waste on an injunction that costs hundreds of thousands of dollars to enforce yet will not bring about positive crime reduction results?
·        The injunction would increase the distance between police and communities, does not focus on rehabilitation, reasons why youth join gangs, jobs or education which youth of our state so desperately need. Study after study has shown that rehabilitation is over ninety percent effective for this age group.
·        A federal judge who is monitoring Oakland police reforms heavily criticized the police department at a hearing and threatened to take it over, the Tribune reported. Judge Thelton Henderson, who is monitoring the OPD because of the Riders scandal, threatened to put the department in “receivership.” If that were to happen, the judge would appoint an overseer who would have power over Oakland Police Chief Anthony Batts. The judge is upset that the Oakland Police Department has still not instituted the police misconduct reforms that it agreed to several years ago. A Legal Settlement is a contract – breach of which by OPD opens the city up to even more money damages.
·        In light of the above, if Russo has his way, the police will undeservedly regain power; usurping Federal power, creating a “Fiefdom” for Russo. A failed police department does not deserve to continue down a path of destruction – that is why the Federal Government stepped in to begin with. If the Rider’s Settlement is not given effect – the entire trial was for naught -yet another waste of taxpayer dollars.
·        The named defendants in the injunction are guilty until proven innocent. This turns the US Constitution upside down. An injunction is simply not necessary because Police need only a reasonable suspicion to stop and frisk a suspect – not the higher level of probable cause. Reasonable suspicion and closer ties to the community is what is needed to bring about crime reduction and community building. An injunction is lazy police work; overkill – unnecessary and has a counter-effective result by tearing down the very community it is supposedly there to clean up.
·        The injunction will not result in safer streets but creates unfettered power in John Russo’s office. Further, an injunction opens the communities up to profit mongers such as real estate developers like John Russo’s family business owners. At a time when Oaklanders are losing their homes to foreclosure at record numbers, their interests rather than big business should be put first. 

 D. A. & Oakland City Attorney Fraud Victim Forcibly Removed from Courthouse Building Threatened With Arrest

    The following letter is from Alameda County District Attorney and Oakland City Attorney fraud victim Abdul-Jalil al-Hakim to an over 40 year personal friend and family client, the Honorable Judge Leo Dorado regarding an encounter with District Attorney henchman Bob Connor whom forcibly removed al-Hakim from the Rene Davidson Courthouse building and threatened to arrest al-Hakim if he ever returned. Connor is very well known to both parties.

    al-Hakim has filed a formal complaint against the Alameda County District Attorney office and the City Attorney’s John Russo of Oakland and Jayne Williams of San Leandro and their City Attorney’s office administrations including the law firm of Meyers Nave, on June 7, 2010. After several conversations with the Alameda County District Attorney office, District Attorney Nancy O’Malley assigned the case to Assistant District Attorney Kevin Dunleavy. After his review and several more conversations with al-Hakim, Dunleavy decided to assign the case for investigation. You can read more on the filing of the complaint and the District Attorney Investigates City Attorneys John Russo, Jayne Williams, Meyers Nave Corruption Complaint.pdf   
http://www.box.net/shared/sjgi7ynhgh

    al-Hakim also filed the complaint with Oakland City Auditor Courtney Rudy, long rumored to be Russo’s love interest, only to have her refuse to investigate  the complaint, though she is compelled to do so by the passing of Russo’s “Oakland ROAR” anti-corruption program. The program was alleged to revive the confidence of the citizens of Oakland in the City Administrators. She received the 200 page complaint with audio CD as witnessed by the voice mail message left for al-Hakim by her assistant Joe Macaluso.

    al-Hakim will petition President Obama and U. S. Attorney General Eric Holder to expand the initial investigation of a complaint filed in 2005 by demanding a change in this criminal, tactical policy of isolation, victimization, criminalization and the attempted entrapment of the victim, including the use of government initiated, Nixon era “White House Plumbers” and CoIntelpro style dirty tricks! This civil conspiracy has brought into play County and Sate Agencies to further it’s continued investigation of al-Hakim whom the defense admitted in 1998 has been surveilled for years and continues today with the compromising of many agents and informants covers due to their sloppiness. These actions of Dunleavy, and Connor are just the latest example of the continuing efforts of law enforcement to silence and eliminate al-Hakim as their adversary when he has caught and exposed them as they have been entrapped in their own crimes!

    After the encounter with Connor, al-Hakim spoke with District Attorney Matt Golde and Dorado regarding his treatment and called O’Malley to voice his extreme concern wherein he received a return call from Dunleavy. The recorded conversation with Dunleavy regarding the encounter with Connor and the investigation can be listened to and/or downloaded  at:
http://www.box.net/shared/x46rvjorhj


  Here’s Dunleavy’s second call stating the he will speak with the Department of Child Support Services attorney that had to admit in court several times that they and the D. A.’s office had committed fraud, embezzlement, and theft against al-Hakim and his family. When al-Hakim refused to pay for the D. A.’s fraud, they attempted to extort the money from him by suspending his drivers license and revoking his passport!

    After no response from the D. A.’s office, the following letter of today ensued.

RE:         District Attorney Forcibly Removing Me from Courthouse Building, Threatened with Arrest if Returned and Response to Formal Complaint Served and Filed June 7, 2010

Dear Judge Dorado,

    First, let me say “Happy Holidays” to you and the family! I know that everyone must be doing great, and since the kids are not getting any younger, I guess you and I can not be 21 any longer! What’s this I hear about you having hip replacement and moving to Juvenile Court? We have some catching up to do, which was part of the reason I was coming to see you when I was removed from the courthouse building!

    I have awaited your response to our last conversation and the results of your inquiry into the District Attorney’s actions wherein hopefully we could meeting to discuss the above very serious concerns. 

    It is unfathomable that such a thing could happen in today’s highly charged racial, political, and law enforcement versus community interactive environment, especially in Oakland and Alameda County where deadly force seems to be the rule rather than the exception. We have also discussed my previous interaction with officer Bob Connor during my Oakland Police Burglary case which you are aware of and know that he is not someone I trust or would interact with in any manner. He clearly tried to put me in harms way where I could/would have been killed! I made it clear then that I never intended to speak or have any contact with him ever again in life.

    To allow the D. A.‘s office to handle me and my complaint in such a Gestapo fashion and to use you as a ruse is unacceptable, needs to be investigated, the responsible parties held accountable and punished. I have yet to receive any response from Nancy O’Malley.     Clearly something must be done as I have waited for you to get back to me to move this process forward. There is no circumstance or law that can justify this use of force, intimidation, and threat of imprisonment under the guise and color of law!. You know that I will not allow this continuing injustice to go on unnoticed so, what time is best for you since I want to meet as soon as possible! 

    We are all very busy, and especially this time of year, but I have been speaking to the D. A.’s office about this matter since June of this year with the above results. The matter of the fraud and corruption committed by the District Attorney and Oakland City Attorney and I are not going to magically disappear so let’s address it and move on. 

    I have litigation that was to be filed in November the day of my being forcibly removed from the court house and threatened with arrest if I returned. I was unable to complete that filing, wherein the D. A.’s office has compromised these suits and this issue also must be corrected ASAP!

    Please respond with a time ASAP and I will accommodate that time and it can be after working hours or the weekend, if it’s best for you. We have some catching up to do anyway.

    Thank you and I welcome and look forward to your immediate response with the furthering of the litigation and resolution of this ongoing case. 

Respectfully,

Abdul-Jalil al-Hakim

Oakland City Attorney Fraud, Solicitation Perjurious Testimony in Affidavits for Gang Injunction!

February 8, 2011,  Oakland, CA:Contact:
Martin Silverman (510) 394-4701

Oakland City Attorney Fraud, Solicitation Perjurious Testimony in Affidavits for Gang Injunction!

    The leak of information on Oakland City Attorney John Russo’s extrinsic fraud, subornation of perjurious testimony and solicitation of perjurious testimony in witness affidavits for the Oakland Gang Injunction litigation is turning into a flood as there appears to be truth in the allegation. It has been rumored that witnesses complained that the affidavits were prepared for their signature without their approval containing inaccurate information, misleading facts, and mis-characterizing statements that were maliciously, willfully and intentionally false. Witness could not change the affidavit and felt they were slighted and perhaps retaliated against when they complained about it. There were other complaints about Russo’s tactics in recent matters as well.
This comes on the heels of a very embarrassing, very public spat with new Oakland Mayor Jean Quan and Russo taking personally abusive verbal shots at each other with Russo scorning the mayor for what he called a risky legal relationship with another attorney and Quan firing back at Russo for releasing his legal advice to the media before discussing it with her.

“Russo Tends to Attack by Press Release” Oakland Mayor Jean Quan
    “The problem is that John Russo tends to attack by press release,” Quan said, and complained that he issued his letter while she was still in Washington, D.C., where she attended U.S. Conference of Mayors meetings and also met with White House officials.
Quan said Russo had created a conflict of interest by releasing his advice to the media when he did. “As the City Attorney giving advice to the Mayor, he has the duty of confidentiality and the duty of loyalty to his client. He broke that confidentiality by his actions,” Quan said in a written statement. “This is exactly why the Mayor’s Office and the City Council Offices have considered seeking independent, outside counsel. The City Attorney is the City’s only attorney,” Russo wrote in the letter he released.
Quan denied sharing any confidential city information with an attorney and friend who has been advising her, saying City Attorney John Russo’s suggestion that she may be spilling secrets was “frankly, insulting.”
That claim is false according to him, as
Russo did not bring his concerns to Quan privately before alerting the media — Russo argued in a letter he sent to Quan, other city leaders and local media that the city attorney is the mayor’s only permissible attorney, so any information Quan shares with anyone other than Russo and those in his office — is not protected and can be subpoenaed, threatening the city’s standing in a host of legal scenarios and taking on another attorney, especially one connected to a fight against the city, is breaking the City Charter and creates a conflict of interest.
“We have a city attorney who is elected and so sometimes has his own political agenda,” Quan said.
“I’m caught in the middle, and I’m sorry about that.”
“This is a uniquely obnoxious violation of the charter because he’s in the middle of this,” Russo said. “I should be able to brief (Quan) on the strengths and weaknesses of our cases. If she’s going to turn around and give that to our opponents, how am I supposed to do my job?” “What the mayor has done here,” Russo added, “is put my office in a very awkward position where we’re not sure we can give confidential information to Mayor Quan. You should never be in that position with the CEO of the corporation.” “Violation of the City Charter is a crime,” Russo wrote in closing. “It is now incumbent on you to uphold your oath to defend the Charter.”
Quan, a longtime adversary of Russo from his days on the Council, feels concerned as the public see’s Russo has overstepped his boundary by pursuing the injunction without endorsement from the city council or the mayor in his continuing quest to be the De-Facto mayor. There is a question about what is the authority of the city attorney to bring these cases without the authorization of city council and the Mayor.”

Oakland Marijuana Ordinance
There’s also a marijuana ordinance in front of city council that is endorsed by “Johnny Potty” Russo. He picked up that handle because of his penchant for doing video interviews in the restroom “potty” with another man, not to mention the weed endorsement. Does the citizens of Oakland really want a crooked City Attorney who drives around with his kids in the car without their seat belts on, wants to legalize smoking weed and gives video interviews in the bathroom with another man? The unfortunate part about this episode is Mayor Quan’s adviser has also been busted for marijuana so everything is up in smoke!
    A court hearing that could result in the implementation of the injunction is scheduled for February 16, 2011 before admitted and convicted liar, the embattled Judge Robert Freedman.

Judge Robert Freedman’s Misconduct Warranted His Removal from Office
    al-Hakim filed a formal complaint on April 11, 2008 and April 14, 2008 with both the Judicial Council and Superior Court against Judge Tigar for his attempt at provoking al-Hakim at a side bar during trial. al-Hakim received a one sentence response dated September 26, 2008 from Victoria Henley stating that “your submission does not provide a basis for commission proceedings”. al-Hakim received a letter dated April 15, 2008 from then Presiding Judge Yolanda Northridge acknowledging receipt of the complaint referring the matter to the Supervising Judge, Robert Freedman for review but has gotten no response as promised.
No one should be surprised because Judge Freedman has had his own well documented problems with honesty by willfully and intentionally filing false, perjurious and deceiving documents and affidavits regrading the timeliness in the administration of his duties in order to get paid and was issued a public reprimand.
In June 2007 The Commission on Judicial Performance publicly censured Alameda Superior Court
Judge Robert J. Freedman for violating rules of conduct by failing to decide cases on time and falsely swearing that he was keeping up with time limits.
Judge Freedman’s misconduct was of such gravity as to warrant his removal from office, the commission said, but the presence of mitigating evidence justified reducing the punishment to a “severe public censure.” You can read and/or download the article on Judge Freeman’s Censure at: http://www.box.net/shared/5n0tt72rbt

It also agreed with the panel that Freedman, as accused in the notice, regularly signed and submitted false salary affidavits to the county during times when he was aware his rulings were overdue. He has a checkered past in al-Hakim’s case as well.
At one hearing in that matter he openly stated bias, prejudice, voiced a fixed opinion of
al-Hakim and having an improper ex-parte communications regarding al-Hakim and his case while using such information to hold al-Hakim to a higher legal standard than that of the opposing counsel in the case as a guise for sanctioning al-Hakim for it. al-Hakim is convinced and Freedman’s three years of delay demonstrate that he will not seriously review nor is he capable of impartially or fairly judging this matter, even for review.

Russo’s Interest in Real Estate Firm
Is there any truth to the allegation that Russo has an interest in a real estate firm? It is widely acknowledged that the Gang Injunctions are nothing but another tool for developers to continue exercising gentrification of the Black/Latino Communities unopposed because of the ap
athy and lack of leadership in defending their rights from the so-called leaders! Where are the national groups that alleges to stand for Civil Rights when the minority communities are being raped and “Okey Doaked” by the “white liberal” defenders of the public trust?

The Merits of The Gang Injunction

 D. A. & Oakland City Attorney Fraud Victim Forcibly Removed from Courthouse Building Threatened With Arrest

    The following letter is from Alameda County District Attorney and Oakland City Attorney fraud victim Abdul-Jalil al-Hakim to an over 40 year personal friend and family client, the Honorable Judge Leo Dorado regarding an encounter with District Attorney henchman Bob Connor whom forcibly removed al-Hakim from the Rene Davidson Courthouse building and threatened to arrest al-Hakim if he ever returned. Connor is very well known to both parties.

    al-Hakim has filed a formal complaint against the Alameda County District Attorney office and the City Attorney’s John Russo of Oakland and Jayne Williams of San Leandro and their City Attorney’s office administrations including the law firm of Meyers Nave, on June 7, 2010. After several conversations with the Alameda County District Attorney office, District Attorney Nancy O’Malley assigned the case to Assistant District Attorney Kevin Dunleavy. After his review and several more conversations with al-Hakim, Dunlea
vy decided to assign the case for investigation.
