Mounted Police wait in the cut in Jena...
These police men were positioned down the driveway of an A-1 Mini-Storage as if we would not be aware of our Jena, LA, a town who regards nooses hanging in trees, as childish games.

The old guard stands by in Jena...
There is one Black police officer in Jena, LA. The town shipped in Black officers to give the appearance of legal equity. These are the same adults who think a noose is a "childish prank." The kids aren't the ones who created the rope "trick."
I wonder if any of these men know where Reed Walters is hiding.

Getting off the bus in Jena, LA

A Tree in Jena, LA...
We saw many trees like this in the LaSalle Parish Courthouse front lawn where thousands gathered to summon the cowardly District Attorney, Reed Walters, who was conspicuously absent on Thursday, Sept. 20, 2007, the day he was to sentence Mychal Bell.

A memorable placard in Jena, LA...

Karla With a K "getting on the bus"... Jena, LA on Tuesday, Sept. 18, 2007 with the crew from Los Angeles, CA. We'll be joining radio personality, Michael Baisden, Al Sharpton and other dedicated activists, on this journey toward justice!

It started with a tree and grew into a movement...

LAUSD Officials and Community @ UNITY RALLY
District 7 Superintendent Dr. Sylvia Rouseau, Locke Principal, Dr. Frank Wells, Min. Tony Muhammad, Mosque #27, and Community Activist and Talk Show Host, Earl Ofari Hutchinson show their concerns at the Unity Rally for Deliesh Allen.

Deliesh Allen's Family at Unity Rally
Deliesh Allen, a 9th grader at Locke High School, was shot down by a random bullet fired by a gang banger, as she waited for her ride home from school.  Two weeks later her precious life was gone.

Locke H. S. and Teach For America
Teach For America and Ms. Karla (With a K) Edward's Locke High School Summer Art Classes, Drawing and Painting, host an Art Show and Reception to show appreciation to one another for the art we all learned about:
  • Mbuti African Art - African tribe that illustrates their reverence for nature using small abstract symbols.
  • Egyptian Art - Wealth and power are depicted in the posture and position of the body.  Profile and straight shoulders indicate strength of character.
  • Black Arts Movement - vehicle for political action through art.
  • Picasso - famous for his cubist style of art.
  • Vincent VanGogh -  depressed, probably bi-polar artist; cut off his ear over a woman
  • Salvador Dali - Spanish artist that feigned insanity to tap into his most creative states.  Successful artist, sold thousands of paintings, unlike VanGogh who only sold one in his lifetime.
  • Pop Art - Andy Warhol painted subjects like Michael Jackson, Marilyn Monroe, the Campbell's Soup can and a self-portrait.  Popular icons of the time.  Contemporary symbols.

  • Clifton Powell, Karla With a K, Glynn Turman

    Michael Williams presents THE COMEDY ACT THEATRE celebrating Black History Month Sunday, Feb. 23, 1986 7:30PM Wilshire Ebell Theatre 4401 W. 8th St. Los Angeles.  Click on the picture to see the talented cast and crew associated with this project!  We all worked together to put on an awesome Black History Month show. 
    The C. A. T. kick started so many Black comedian's careers, as well as White comics who think they're Black. If only we were all willing to work together again...we'd have some talented minds creating some powerful content the media would eat up!

    "South Of Where We Live"
    Fresno, CA 1991

    This is the Fresno cast of Kenneth B. Davis' "South Of Where We Live" produced in 1991. I played the role of Hazel Simpkin, the Facilitator. This performance was done in the midst of my writing  my book, "my steps to healing." I flew back to L. A. from Virginia to do the play. It was one of my most memorable moments on stage. If you read my book, you'll understand why...some of the actors on this classic flyer also played a primary role in my personal drama.

    Just having some fun with HAIR!

    I've been through a lot of changes since KACE went off the air, trying to keep my performing career going and make a living at the same time. One night, yeah, it was one of those nights...I went looking for my audience and I found it in a comedy club! So I finally got the I'm doing Stand Up comedy now and I'm just feeling, well... you figure it out!

    What's Love Got to Do With It?
    Ask about the credit, benefits, baby's mamas and HIV testing, honey! Stay focused and keep it real!

    Master Sargeant, George W. Edward, 10/23/22-1/17/83
    U. S. Army, Ret.

    This is why I'm patriotic. My father was a proud military man until he retired. He then worked as a Sports Supervisor at the Petersburg Federal Reformatory, where former Mayor Marion Barry served a six-month sentence for cocaine possession.
    My father didn't have it easy, but he achieved a life to be proud of through his work ethic and his dedication to this country of which I am thankful and proud of.

    My Mother & Father's Award, 1965
    I always thought this was my mother getting an award by herself, but I read the info on the back this time and I now realize that it was an award my mother and father won TOGETHER! For home care and beautification, no less! The more I learn about my parents, the more I understand me.

    Last minute arrangements...8/1/02
    10 minutes later they were surrounded by a throng of young brothers. Now that's how to plan an evening! You work that technology, girls!
