WITH THE MAYOR! - April 16, 2012
Newark's Mayor Cory Booker is beloved by his community and his recent act of bravery, running into a burning building to rescue a neighbor from a near fatal fire, has made him a global hero and twitter sensation.
Mayor Booker is known for his dedication to community and to the youth in that community. One of the youth activities that he supports is Newark's championship Double Dutch team.
Team on the Move, comprised of local Newark tween and teen girls were recently invited by the producers of the Off-Broadway hit SISTAS: The Musical, playing at St. Luke's Theater, to attend a performance of the play.
SISTAS is an uplifting story of an African American family. Based on a series of interviews conducted with Black women over a six-year period, and using a playlist of songs made famous by artists that include Billie Holiday, Lena Horn, Erykah Badu, Jill Scott, Mary J. Blige and others, this Musical tells of the struggles, the joys and the triumphs of being Black and of being a Woman in America.
After the play, the Mayor paid an unexpected visit to check up on his little ladies and to ask their reaction to the play. For many of the young ladies, this was the first live theater performance they had attended. For the group, which ranged in age from 10 to 17 years of age, the experience was made all the more special when the cast held a private Talk Back for them, answering their questions about what they had seen and explaining to them, a bit of the behind the scenes of a theater production.
Pictured here, the Mayor in his weekend clothes (jeans and sneakers) visiting NYC theater district to meet the cast of SISTAS and to check-up on his Double Dutch Champions, Team on the Move.
