Comments Off on Update! “Trailer of the Day” Honor!
Just finished a promo (click & watch) for the hot new book, SEARCHING FOR BLACK CONFEDERATES: The Civil War’s Most Persistent Myth authored by Kevin M. Levin and published by the University of North Carolina Press. If Kevin’s name sounds familiar, he was a key interviewee in my documentary, COLORED CONFEDERATES: Myth or Matter of Fact?
What a treat to work with Kevin again! Also, a big shout out to the venerable pro, Regina Mahalek, at UNC Press for making “the unimaginable” happen, aka making lightning strike in exact same place twice! For that, I owe her “two” instead of just one! I guess I’m just a lucky so and so. Hahaha!! ~ KW

Visited the The Chronicle of Higher Education‘s site today and saw the book (Shelter in a Time of Storm: How Black Colleges Fostered Generations of Leadership and Activism) for a video trailer I created was: SELECTED NEW BOOKS ON HIGHER EDUCATION!!!
Wow, talk about a prestigious acknowledgment! “The Chronicle“is the Wall Street Journal of college and university profession. What a victory for “The Team!”

What a great pleasure it was to meet actress/writerErica Alexander(GET OUT, THE COSBY SHOW, and LIVING SINGLE) to discuss my next project! The mission of Ms. Alexander’s production company, COLOR FARM MEDIA, with co-Founder/CEO Ben Arnon is quite clear.
We raise issues.
We breed diversity.
We nurture perspectives.
We grow talent.

Comments Off on Down East Flick Fest (July 20 & 21). Free event for film-lovers!
Last week, we lost one of the most genuine, kind, funny, intelligent, inspiring, and caring difference-makers that I’ve ever known in academe, Animation Professor Carl Twarog. Very sad news for me but Carl no longer has to suffer. His painful cancer battle is over. Personally, I probably won’t be totally restored from losing this man, meant in the truest sense of the word, for a very long time. In fact, I’m barely able to finish this post without stopping to dry my eyes. Thank you God for allowing me to befriend and learn from such an extraordinary spirit.
Yup, it hurts badly to lose ya man. Love ya Carl! ~ Ken

A picture from last week’s National Press Photographers Association (NPPA) conference and workshop at the University of Oklahoma in Norman, OK. At that moment, there were more video cameras and operators in the same place than anywhere else in the world! See if you can locate me! ~ Ken
