Marshall

https://youtu.be/srahuE6vsAA
I saw Marshall this weekend and I absolutely LOVED it.  Chadwick Bozeman and Josh Had were great!!! If you haven’t seen the movie, go check it out. Link to one of the trailers is above.

Quick note (in case you need it):

It is about the 1st African American Supreme Court justice,  Thurgood Marshall (played by Boseman) when he was a lawyer for the NAACP.  The movie covers the case of a black chaueffer (played Sterling K. Brown) being accused of rape and attempted murder of a white socialite (Kate Hudson) whom he worked for.

Long Grove Chocolate Festival

The Long Grove Chocolate fest was AWESOME on this gorgeous day.  I cannot believe that this was the 1st time I’ve attended.  We had some of the following: 
Chocolate covered cheesecake
Chocolate covered bananas
Chocolate covered strawberries kabobs
Chocolate cream puffs

Of course,  we had to eat something beforehand so we had cheese fries,  pulled turkey loaded nachos, chicken strips, and Stella’s.  Too bad it is only 1 weekend a year.

I never heard of Gregory Porter but i liked his music.  I can see myself relaxing at home flipping through a magazine or cooking as I listen to his music.
I’ve always liked Leela James and Avery Sunshine, BUT their performances….
I have a NEW found love and respect for not only their music but their voices.   Wow! 

Erykah Badu??? Do you really have to ask?  She was 45 minutes later than scheduled to show on stage BUT sistah there… She made me forget she was late. This was the first time I saw her in concert.  Beautiful experience!!!

There were multiple vendors selling their products from clothes, shoes, and oils. I had never seen such a set up for people of color that I was in awe. 

Can’t wait until today’s show.

Ttyl!

Hamilton

                      Say it ain’t so!

As soon as Hamilton is set to come to Chicago,  the creator Lin Manuel Miranda and Lead Leslie Odom, Jr are leaving the show in July.  Odom just won a Tony Award last week for his portrayal of Aaron Burr in the hit Broadway musical.

I was about to set an alert on my phone to be ready to buy tickets when they go on sale at 10a tomorrow morning.  Now, I’m not sure. Ugh!
