The Projects: C humansofnewyork: “Nobody would give us a chance.  We were in our early twenties.  We had two young kids.  We were working, but living check to check.  At the time we were staying in the projects with my mother-in-law, but my kids were growing up, so we needed our own place.  But all the rental brokers wanted to see our bank statements.  And we had no savings.  We didn’t even have accounts.  Then one day I was walking down the avenue, and I saw a super fixing up an empty apartment.  I told him I needed to speak to the landlord directly.  No brokers.  And I guess he liked my vibe, because he gave me the name: Ronald Petrowski.  When I called Mr. Petrowski, I explained everything.  I told him we needed a chance.  He agreed to meet me and my husband at Lenny’s Pizzeria.  He bought us a plain pie and listened to our story.  He’d grown up poor himself, so he knew the struggle.  And he gave us a chance.  We’ve been in that apartment for 35 years now, and I’ve paid him every cent.  We’ve fallen on hard times.  At one point I owed him an entire year of rent.  But he was so gracious.  He never sent us an eviction notice.  Every time he came to collect, he’d sit at our kitchen table, have a cup of coffee, and listen to our situation.  Mr. Petrowski is my hero.  He sold the building a couple years ago, but we still keep in touch.  That man gave me a home to raise my children.”

It is titled by PBS as, “Nas Live From the Kennedy Center: Classical Hip-Hop, the concert film musters the energetic appeal of the profound collaboration and wistfulness of the audible hip-hop Queensbridge fable.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "It’s crazy, you know, I wrote this in the projects in New York City. Here we are in the capital of America, Washington, DC, and, you know, a bunch of white people with strings and all that, playing this album, and they feeling it," Nas said in the film trailer. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The recording of the concert film took place in March 2014, when Nas was celebrating Illmatic’s 20th anniversary. The film will portray the Queens native’s upbringing, career, and musical background. It will also feature rehearsals, preparation and Illmatic’s journey to Kennedy Center stage. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "This was the first time me as a classical orchestra conductor was going to branch out into the realm of doing hip-hop music and rap music. And the idea of finally tackling this genre was something I was really looking forward to do," National Symphony Orchestra Principal Pops Conductor Steven Reineke said in a statement. The performance is set to premiere on the PBS network nationwide on Friday, February 2 at 9 p.m

The Projects: Texas boy, 11, invent:s device to prevent child deaths in hot a @MERCIFUL.MELANIN 0:16 64 NBCDFW.COM BishopCurry is just 11 years old, but already, he’s looking to change the world. This young inventor, according to CBS News, has developed a device to deal with the issue of children dying in hotcars. The device is called “ Oasis” and is made up of a fan that automatically turns on when the inside of a car reaches a set temperature. The fan will be placed in the headrest of car seats, facing the child inside. “The device detects if vehicle comes to stop, using GPS technology,” Curry told CBS News. “It then detects if a child is in that car seat, and if the car is heating up. If all of those things are taking place it blows cold air on the child through an internal coolingsystem.” Curry wants to add an antenna to the device that can connect to Wifi in order to alert parents if the fan is activated. If parents don’t respond, the police will be called, with the device providing GPS coordinates. A GoFundMe page for the project was started in January and has already raised $41,000. His father, Bishop Curry IV, is an engineer at Toyota, so Curry has already been able to present his idea to car manufacturers. While they have shown interest in the device, they have not decided to use it yet. Melanin blackessence embracebeauty blackmagic blackgirlsrock blackwomenrock blackmenrock foodforthought

The center, which will feature a variety of creative resources and a 1,200-seat theater, will be part of the new Compton High School, and is set to break ground in 2020. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “My goal is to provide kids with the kind of tools and learning they deserve,” Dre said in a press statement. “The performing arts center will be a place for young people to be creative in a way that will help further their education and positively define their future.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In addition to his multi million dollar donation, Dre will continue raising additional funds for the project. Once complete, the school will be home to 2,500 students. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Dre is no newbie to philanthropy. The Compton High School project will be his second major philanthropy project towards the improvement of Southern California education. In 2013, Dre and his business partner JimmyIovine contributed $70 million to the University of Southern California to create the USC Jimmy Iovine and Andre Young Academy for Arts, Technology and the Business of Innovation. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Vice chairman of the Compton Unified School District's Board of Education, Micah Ali, said: "Dr. Dre has stepped up and partnered with the school district to make this vision a reality. A true act of giving back to the community in a way that will directly impact the ever-resilient efforts of our students to rise-up and succeed.

The Projects: By Mike Imlay Video By Carr Winn & Clint Simone Every SEMA Show vehicle has a story, but few intertwine the themes of mentorship, industry know-how, teamwork and inspiration as compellingly as Project Underdog, a student-customized 1972 Ford Maverick built under the tutelage of actor Sung Kang. Sponsored by Shell and featuring Pennzoil, and supported by Ford Motor Company, Samsung, NITTO, GReddy, Rocket Bunny and Facebook, the unique vehicle venture was completed at the SEMA Garage in Diamond Bar. California, just days before its official unveiling at the 2016 SEMA Show in Las Vegas and I've had over 30 years at the SEMA II 0:07 2:08 Kang created Project Underdog as an exercise in youth engagement, putting together a unique team consisting of three aspiring California car enthusiasts from Alhambra High School, award-winning vehicle builder Steve Strope, members of the SEMA Garage and other industry professionals to successfully transform the unassuming "underdog" Maverick into a showcase performer and winner of a Ford Corporate Design Award for its significant contribution to vehicle design.
