[*] CPR: Learn Life-Saving Skills

#############################################

https://www.heart.org/en/about-us/office-of-health-equity/black-history-month

 

Heartful Unity

This Black History Month, let's come together with heartful unity. Be a lifesaver that unites our community in the shared mission of promoting heart health and saving lives through CPR and AED training.

 

Black Americans have the highest incidence of cardiac arrest outside of the hospital and are significantly less likely to survive.

 

Cardiac arrest in Black neighborhoods is associated with alarmingly low treatment and survival rates and studies have shown lower rates of both bystander CPR and bystander AED use in these neighborhoods. We need to change this trajectory.

In partnership with ASU’s Center for Work and Democracy and the George Floyd Global Memorial, ASU Art Museum presents “Twin Flames: The George Floyd Uprising from Minneapolis to Phoenix.” Presented for the first time outside of Minnesota and on view from February 3 through July 28, 2024 at the ASU Art Museum, “Twin Flames” asks important questions about the role of art and community as a vehicle for bearing witness and creating deeper understanding and empathy. It also examines the state of public memorials in this country, and prompts us to reflect on whose stories are shared, by whom and why.

 

In contrast to traditional monuments, “Twin Flames” is a powerful, community-led exhibition that showcases a selection of the thousands of offerings laid by mourners and protesters at George Floyd Square, collected by a group of community caretakers and cataloged by the George Floyd Global Memorial team.

ROBERT GLASPER

NOVEMBER 9, 2024

SATURDAY 8PM

$37 - $77

Presented by Mesa Arts Center

 

 Robert Glasper is the leader of a new sonic paradigm with a career that bridges musical and

 artistic genres. To date, he boasts 5 Grammy wins and 11 nominations across 11 categories, an Emmy

 Award for his song for Ava Duvernay’s critically hailed documentary “13th” with Common and Karriem

 Riggins, and a Peabody Award for his Composition of “Mr. Soul!” His work and accolades bridge all

 aspects of the music business, from live touring to film scoring, composing and producing. The

 ongoing Black Radio series has since become Glasper’s calling card, upholding a place at the heart

 of a trailblazing community: from long-time sonic brothers Mos Def and Bilal, to legends including

 Ledisi, Lupe Fiasco, Jill Scott and Erykah Badu. Glasper is an artist at the heart of a moment -

 and a movement - to champion Black music, Black people and the possibility of a better future.

[*] AT THE MOVIES

#############################################

 

Candy Cane Lane

It centers on Chris (Eddie Murphy) and his quest to win the annual Christmas home decoration contest. However, a deal with a mischievous elf named Pepper (Jillian Bell) goes awry, bringing the 12 Days of Christmas to life and causing chaos in the town. Chris, his wife Carol (Tracee Ellis Ross), and their three children must break Pepper’s spell and save Christmas for everyone.

 

The Strays

A light-skinned Black woman’s meticulously crafted life of privilege starts to unravel when two strangers show up in her quaint suburban town.

 

The Outlaw Johnny Black

Cowboy Johnny Black vows to gun down Brett Clayton, the man responsible for the death of his father. He soon becomes a wanted outlaw while posing as a preacher in a small mining town that’s been taken over by a notorious land baron.

 

Brother

The film revolves around Francis and Michael, played by Pierre and Johnson, who are the sons of Caribbean immigrants growing up in Toronto’s early hip hop scene of the 90s. A mystery unfolds during the sweltering summer of 1991, and escalating tensions set off a series of events that change the course of the brothers’ lives forever. ‘Brother’ crafts a timely story about the profound bond between siblings, the resilience of community and the irrepressible power of music.

 

Rustin

The film ‘Rustin’ gives audiences a sneak peek into the story of Bayard Rustin, an instrumental but often overlooked figure in the civil rights movement. At the heart of ‘Rustin’ lies the narrative of Bayard Rustin, the visionary mind behind the historic 1963 March on Washington.

 

The Color Purple

Warner Bros. is set to release this new musical reimagining of Alice Walker's 1982 book "The

Color Purple" in December. Blitz Bazawule is known for his debut feature film, "The Burial of

Kojo," the first Ghanaian movie to premiere on Netflix, and for co-directing Beyonc 's musical

film "Black Is King." This rendition of the story is based on the 2005 Tony Award-winning

Broadway production.

 

They Cloned Tyrone

John Boyega, Teyonah Parris, Jamie Foxx, J. Alphonse Nicholson, Tamberla Perry, Jason Louder

A series of eerie events thrusts an unlikely trio onto the trail of a nefarious government

 conspiracy lurking directly beneath their neighborhood.

 

Talk To Me

When a group of friends discover how to conjure spirits using an embalmed hand, they become

hooked on the new thrill, until one of them goes too far and unleashes terrifying supernatural

 forces.

 

The Equalizer 3

- Director: Antoine Fuqua

The supposed final installment in the Equalizer trilogy, "The Equalizer 3" sees the return of

 private investigator Robert McCall (Denzel Washington) as he attempts to take down the Italian

 mafia. The film coincidentally reunites Washington and "Man on Fire" costar Dakota Fanning on

 screen for the first time in almost 20 years. In theaters this September, the movie marks

 Washington's fifth time working with director Antoine Fuqua.

 

Lift

- Director: F. Gary Gray

Known for such films as "Straight Outta Compton," "The Italian Job," and "Men in Black:

 International," F. Gary Gray returns as helmer of the heist comedy "Lift." Kevin Hart plays

 a thief extraordinaire whose FBI ex-girlfriend (Gugu Mbatha-Raw) has convinced him to undertake

 an impossible job stealing $100 million in gold bullion on a 777 flying from London to Zurich.

 Other names on the cast list include Sam Worthington ("Avatar"), Jean Reno ("Da 5 Bloods"),

and Jacob Batalon ("Spider-Man: No Way Home").

 

Dashing Through the Snow

- Director: Tim Story

Following "The Blackening" in June, Tim Story will release another comedy this year starring

 Ludacris, Teyonah Parris, and Lil Rel Howery. The film follows a social worker in Atlanta who

takes his daughter with him on a ride, during which he accidentally angers a local politician and

 eventually learns the meaning of Christmas. The film will be distributed by Disney+ and released

 during the holidays this year.

WELCOME TO WESTSIDE BLUES & JAZZ

Live Blues & Jazz every Thursday, Friday, Saturday & Sunday

Paul Vincent Perez and Cindi Jackson ( niece of Arizona Saxophonist Lou Garno ) created

WestSide Blues & Jazz through necessity ( Ok, also maybe because they just wanted to ).

The West Valley was way over due for a Blues & Jazz Night Club that offers Live Blues & Jazz

every Thursday, Friday, Saturday & Sunday featuring the best Bands in the State.

When asked what he thought was the key to a successful Night Club in the West Valley ,

Paul said “ 3 Criteria are needed, Awesome musicians, Great Service and a Comfortable atmosphere

and WestSide Blues will have all of that - plus.

 

WestSide Blues & Jazz offers a cozy, bricked wall speakeasy decor with very comfortable casual seating.

There is not a bad seat in the House. (Except maybe the one behind the pole ??.)

We have a top professional sound and lighting system , a 35’ granite bar with comfy swivel stools.

We will offer a large menu of custom Craft cocktails along with your favorite liquors and beers.
