The 2016 Pure Heat Community Festival was amazing as The Real ATL Pride took over Piedmont Park and hosted a day full of music, fellowship, and fun. I had the opportunity to capture images of the day’s activities which included a mini concert by K. Michelle, Tiffany Evans, JhonnI Blaze and many more. The Real Atlanta Pride is so much more than an opportunity to party it’s about giving back to the community and developing life long relationships.

I was one of the sponsors for a dope back to school drive powered by the good people over at Zaxby’s Midtown for their new initiative “The Young Moguls Project.

The ATL  city were invited to enjoy an afternoon of good food, enjoy fun sounds, and donate to a worthwhile cause. R&B singers Meelah and Apollo along side Little Zach (the brand’s official mascot) were on hand to help distribute school supplies and smiles. While Sterling Coleman the organizer and owner of Zaxbys powered a dope charitable experience.

My girl Kandi Burruss through her wonderful foundation Kandi Cares partnered with Macys to present 100 single parent run families with back to school supplies to prepare for the upcoming school year. The event was held at Atlanta’s Lenox Square Mall. Fans were invited to see the star, contribute donations, and see her dope girl group Glamour.



The King of the South T.I. hosted a fun back to school supply giveaway in Atlanta today for deserving kids headed back to school. T.I. loves connecting with the community, mentoring kids, and giving a little bit back to the community. T.I. teamed up with non-profit “Saving Our Daughters” to hand out over 1,000 book bags. The rainy weather did not deter students nor their parents from getting blessed with the essentials needed for a successful academic year.

GoFundMe Account Frozen!


This is a sad, sad, sad case that I wish I could say had something to do with other than race but it honestly doesn’t. There is a boy by the name of Freddy Barley who rode 6 hours on his bike just to make it to college in time for move-in day. He got accepted into college but had no means of transportation nor housing when he got to school. He was sleeping in a tent outside of campus and everything, I mean he was really struggling!

So yes, if you were wondering this is a young African-American boy and this halt on his account I am convinced is all about racial profiling. This boy set up an account explaining his situation and he was gratefully able to raise a whopping $184,000 dollars!



Then one of the people in authority for the GoFundMe site put a halt on the money he raised because they apparently had “multiple questions” about his story and his actual situation.


I was heartbroken when I read it because I just feel that if it were any other race he wouldn’t be under investigation for telling the truth. Why are you so hesitant to give this young man this money? Because you already see his drive and determination to make the best of the opportunity given to him?


Why are you so intimidated? So bothered?
