On Monday, September 20, I will be delivering a keynote address at
The Rotary Club of New York at the Harvard Club in Manhattan. The theme is GOT WHAT IT TAKES TO GET WHERE YOU WANT TO GO IN LIFE? I'll sign books and do Q & A as part of the luncheon.
On Wednesday, September 15th, I will be interviewing "Queen of
Swing," Norma Miller" at Harlem's historic Lennox Lounge. Norma is
recognized as the greatest living swing dancer and a pioneer of that
dance form. She is the subject of a brilliant new documentary "Queen
of Swing," by the acclaimed director, John Biffar. The interview is
for the national PBS show MY GENERATION, for which I am correspondent.
In addition to her work as a dancer, Norma played a key role in
helping to break down barriers facing black performers alongside her
contemporaries Billie Holiday, Louis Armstrong and Sammy Davis, Jr.
