RAMBLING ROSE: Young people doing their thing!
Rosa Pryor | 8/12/2016, 9 a.m.
Hello friends and fans, a lot is going on this week, especially involving the young folks in our community. For example, 11-year-old Anthony Michael Hobbs who began acting at age eight has already racked up many awards for his skills, especially from his supporting role project for PBS, “The American Experience; The Abolitionist,” which received an Emmy Award nomination for “Outstanding Documentary or Non-Fiction Series.
This young man played young Frederick Douglass at age six. The story about this young man goes on and on. The public is invited to the red carpet screening event to meet this special young man from our hometown on Sunday, August 14, 2016 at the Arbutus Volunteer Fire Department Community Hall located 5200 Southwestern Blvd. from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. The event is free!
My goodness gracious! We have two more children who are doing outstanding work with their musical talent. They have performed all over the Baltimore and District of Columbia leaving a name for themselves playing their saxophones.
They also play other instruments including keyboards. Ephraim and Ebban Dorsey at the age of 12 and 13 years old have played with some of the top local and national musicians in many concerts and jazz jam sessions. It is a must to go see these two little ones. This brother and sister team is awesome! Thanks to their parents for taking a strong interest in their education with both of them at the top of their class with honors and they still find time to be professional musicians. Well done!
There is one more thing I want to mention before I leave you and that is to remind you about the “New Africa Festival” which will take place on Saturday, August 20, 2016 at Druid Hill Park from 12 p.m. until 8 p.m. at the Sundail Pavilion. The event is free and there will be something for the whole family, including vendors and live entertainment! It’s picnic style, so bring your folding chairs and enjoy. The event will be hosted by Reggie Wells (Oprah Winfrey’s former make-up artist) and yours truly “Rambling Rose.” I will be signing my books! You will be entertained by Ms. Shay, First Impression, “Baltimore Heat” and “Mann,” formerly of the Softones. I will see you there.
Well my dear friends, it is about that time. Remember, if you need me, call me at 410-833-9474 or email me at email@example.com.
