Last weekend V103 Atlanta radio personality, Egypt Sherrod and host of HGTV’s “Property Virgins”, joined forces with Clark Atlanta University (CAU) and the Women’s Empowerment Conference to host an all-female overnight empowerment boot camp for more than 150 women ages 18 to 50. The women discussed the spirit of sisterhood and creating an environment of love and acceptance for one another, while dissecting self-destructive issues such as jealousy and self-hatred that hold women back from happy, fruitful lives.

I have to say I was kinda shocked to hear that my Alma Mata Clark Atlanta University is adding the late King of Pop to its curriculum. The school has announced plans to offer a new MBA course that examines how Michael Jackson built his billion dollar empire. The course, which will be taught by veteran entertainment attorney James Walker, p.s. he won’t be teaching students how to moonwalk. It will, however, teach them how Jackson revolutionized legal practices about entertainment-related copyright law. Walker has many high-profile clients, including actor Jamie Foxx. He says the course will allow him to provide students with a comprehensive understanding of how the music industry works. READ MORE

Pooch-Meagan-atCAU-MeetnGreet
We got the chance to speak with Megan Good and Pooch Hall who are currently on a promotional tour in Atlanta for their upcoming film Jumping The Broom/meet and greet at Clark Atlanta University. Megan was ab open book and allowed us to ask her any question about her life. One question we were all eager to know was if the allegations of her wanting to play the late great Aaliyah was true. The Aaliyah Warner Brothers Films was going to start filming a year ago a biopic based on Aaliyah’s life. The film will be directed by Bill Condon, the director behind the award-winning blockbuster, Dreamgirls. Canadian singer and former girlfriend of highly popular rapper Drake, Keshia Chanté (pictured below) is set to play the late singer.

The film is also reported to carry an impressive $80 million production budget and is set for a national release date for some time next year. At this time, it is unknown if Aaliyah’s boyfriend at the time of her death, co-founder of Rocafella Records and owner of multimedia compound and art gallery DD172, Damon Dash will partake in the film. Dash and Aaliyah had plans to wed at the time of her death.

Good reveals that it’s one of her dreams and would be a great honor if she were given the opportunity. She also tells us she spoke to the family about it and they are up for it but the issue of her death is still very sensitive for their family at this time.
