CAN I KICK IT? / 5/26 / Screening “REVENGE of the NINJA” starring Sho Kosugi

revenge_ninja_web

“Revenge of the Ninja” is one of my FAVORITE joints.  Such a classic 80’s martial arts film that really popularized ninjitsu (showing a variety of the martial art form’s tenets) and had every kid that summer rocking a ninja costume.  Sho Kosugi (the lead) is an icon in the game and this film, including it’s former – “Enter the Ninja” along with Sho’s other films, certainly back my statement.

See you guys Tues May 26th and for more info click here.

Our COLOR of SOUND Art Exhibition at the University of Maryland, Baltimore turned out to be one of our strongest presentations to date.  All of the works set on easels creating more than ample spacing which allowed attendees to freely engage the works – front to back.

Thanks to the United Students of African Descent and the university’s USGA for bringing us, all of the attendees, Madison Davenport PR, and the participating artists: Cee Love, Zsudayka Nzinga, VonDell Green, Brody Rose, Candace Fong, and Aniekan Udofia.
