A Yemeni journalist, who worked for ABC News and the Washington
Post, and is cited by the New York Times as an Al-Qaeda expert, was
Moments away from being released from a Yemeni prison, but now
Remains there indefinitely at President Obama’s request.

Having committed no real crimes to speak of, Abdulelah Haider Shaye
Is perhaps guilty of exposing the U.S. Involvement in the killing
Of 14 women and 21 children in a so-called strike on Al-Qaeda
Militants. A fact that President Obama wanted to be kept secret.

Shaye photographed remnants of Tomahawk cruise missiles and cluster
Bombs, neither of which are in the Yemeni military’s arsenal, and
Revealed the U.S. Role in the strikes which killed women, children,
And the elderly.

Perhaps the President is worried that if word gets out they will
Ask for his Nobel Peace Prize back…

We are pleased to announce our partnership with Art21, a nonprofit dedicated to engaging audiences with contemporary visual art, inspiring creative thinking, and educating a new generation about artists working today.

At the dawn of the twenty-first century, American artists are taking self-expression and the artistic process into uncharted territory. Today’s artists are engaging the world and their audiences in vital and surprising new ways. They use an enormous variety of media and draw on sources ranging from pop culture and politics to ethnic heritage, classical models and deeply personal life experiences. The artists featured in the series represent a cross-section of contemporary art practices and philosophies, and hail from different regions of the United States. The Studio Museum in Harlem has selected four episodes featuring artists also in the Museum’s exhibitions, publications and permanent collection: Kerry James Marshall, Layla Ali, El Anatsui and Glenn Ligon. The episodes featuring these artists embrace diverse concepts to provide a platform for conversation: IDENTITY/POWER/CHANGE/HISTORY.

In collaboration with Art21, The Studio Museum in Harlem will be hosting four screenings during the month of April:

Sunday, April 1 | 3:00 PM
Season 1: Episode: Identity, Kerry James Marshall

Sunday, April 15
| 3:00 PM
Season 3: Episode: Power, Layla Ali

Sunday, April 22 | 3:00 PM
Season 6: Episode: Change, El Anatsui

Sunday, April 29 | 3:00 PM
Season 6: Episode: History, Glenn Ligon

Inner City seeks cash lifeline

Inner City seeks cash lifeline.

Less than one month after a bankruptcy judge approved the sale of Inner City Broadcastings assets to YMF Media, the company is asking the court to give it access to cash as a lifeline to keep the operation running smoothly until the new owners can take over. Inner City is also planning to move from its current New York headquarters to save money.
