The ‘Illinois’ Dreadhead Cowboy Arrested in Chicago After Protesting ALL KIDS LIVES MATTER

CHICAGO- Adam Hollingsworth, 33, rode the Dan Ryan Expressway to bring awareness to the slaying of our children, heading southbound from about 35th Street, where he slowed down traffic with the Illinois State Police and Chicago Police close behind asking him and the gang to exit but they refused, eventually exiting at 95th where he was taken into custody around 4:30 PM by police, as reported by WGN News.

They’re calling for the mayor and governor to fund mental health, education, social programs and new development in neighborhoods that have been neglected, and are being gentrified.

“The thing is to send a message that our children are dying, That there are no resources coming to our communities.”

Activist Mark Carter

According to journalist Vashon, Dreadhead Cowboy lead his horse Nunu 7.5 miles down the expressway before being arrested. Ironically his horse is named after one of the children shot and killed this summer, Vernado “NuNu” Jones Jr., whom we are still seeking justice for. He’s facing three (3) charges: reckless conduct, disobeying a police officer and criminal trespass.

State police said another man, Darron Luster, 55, attempted to gain control of the horse after Hollingsworth was arrested. Luster was charged with obstructing and resisting arrest.

NuNu had multiple injuries from the trip. He was allegedly “bleeding from the left hoof, its right hoof was injured and the right side of the horse’s body had sores from the saddle.” Chicago Animal Control was called to the scene and took the animal to their facility for further care.

Adam is no stranger of being an honorable active citizen in the hood or neighborhoods across Chicago. He’s always stood loud ringing the alarm so the deaf can open their mind to the rate of how our children are being taken away from us. ALL CHILDREN life does matter; the killings of children in Chicago, the kidnapping , and human trafficking of our children must be front and center so it can be stopped.

“Earlier this summer, Mayor Lightfoot dubbed Hollingsworth “The Census Cowboy” in an effort to bring awareness around filing out the census (WGN).”

@theestallion, Contracts, and the Business of Music at a Young Age

Megan Thee Stallion is in for a big lesson when it comes to finance and contracts. March 1, Megan shared a video via Instagram dishing her contract details with 1501 Entertainment, and its CEO Carl Crawford, who’s an ex Major League Baseball player. She stated that she didn’t understand or know the verbiage that was in the contract that she signed at 20 years of age (now 25), and when she finally got a real management team with lawyers through her management deal with Roc Nation, they brought the details up to see if she understood the terms. She stated she didn’t and wanted to renegotiate. The label isn’t in favor of her releasing new music but is being sued by the artist who is seeking the termination of her contract and a temporary restraining order that has been granted by a judge in Harris County, Texas, to allow her to release new music.

Megan has accused the defendants of common law fraud, breach of contract, fraudulent inducement, fraud by non-disclosure, tortious interference with prospective business relations, violation of the Deceptive Trade Practices Consumer Protection Act, negligent misrepresentation, breach of fiduciary duty and negligence. The plaintiff is seeking a temporary and permanent injunction and a declaration that her contract is “unconscionable, unenforceable and/or void.”, according to the court documents obtained by E! News.  The restraining order will expire March 16, 2020 at 11:59 PM.

What can we learn from this?

It’s important to ask questions when negotiating agreements and understanding all the terms. If you can’t afford a lawyer, it’s important to consult with people in the industry. It’s better than signing something then later having to renege on your business deal.

Yes Megan was young, and I do side with her being taken advantage of because it’s a painful history of artist being incarcerated in deals that do not serve them but those who invest in their capital to record, release, promote, and distribute their art deserve a return (ROI). I hope that this situation can be worked out because everyone deserves an accurate return based on their investment.

Black Panther Premiere: Community Bonding and Celebration with @ThorntonTwp

Black Panther Premiere at Cinema 8

Published First: Thornton Township

I had the pleasure of connecting with Thornton Township to witness the debut of Black Panther with the community, Feb. 16 at Cinema 8 in Lansing. Royal purple carpets, wristbands, goodie bags with Black History Flashcards, including free snacks and beverages were gifted to the community members for their support in making the day great. The movie theater was filled with love from the elders, generation X, baby boomers, and the millennials who all seemed to take away the great message the movie had to offer which was “We are stronger united than we are divided”. Can you think of any significant way to spend black history month?

There were many other messages that were encoded but the message mentioned above was commonly received by the guest. I cried many times during the movie: tears of joy, tears of realization, tears of sadness, and tears of anger. Black Panther reminded me of my constant duty to the community, and Dr. Jamal Turner, the keynote speaker in theater one, spoke to us about his experience as a real life Black Panther.

Thornton Township was thanked by many guests for doing such a wonderful thing for the community because they provided an opportunity, “To those who probably couldn’t afford movie tickets” as said by Jouhan Sawe, a Thornton Township community member and employee.

Another guest, Jeanette Quin said “Everything was perfect. The movie, how the event was put together, and how smooth it flowed. We were right on time and I thank them for hosting the event.” It’s more than safe to say that the community is looking forward to more remarkable things happening in Thornton Township. I know I had a marvelous time dressed in full regalia, bonding with the people, and being of service to the community. Can’t wait to see what they have in store for the rest of the month, and I hope to see you at the next outing or social.
