As a child I grew up with SESEME STREET,THE ELECTRIC COMPANY ,In my teens,
it was SOUL!But the biggest impact was when I chosen by Bill Moyers’producers
to participate in a poetry reading in Bryant Park in 1994! I was in the Creative Writting group at the International Center for the Disabled on shared the platform with Gwendolyn Brooks among others! I was never formally introduced, but it is the highlight of my poetic life! If you have or can find or obtain a copy of that proformance which I believe THIRTEEN did film. I’m easy to spot,I’m the only one reading in my wheelchair; I would cherish a copy.
I also love TAVIS SMILEY and Washington Week with Gwen Ifill and loved “An Evening with Gwen Ifill “which aired recently. I ‘m also a long time member of THIRTEEN.
