Recently Raven Symone spoke candidly about “ghetto names” and how she would not hire someone with the name, Watermelondria. Later I viewed videos using the same language “ just because someone has a" ghetto name” doesn’t mean they are not qualified.
When we let another ethnicity belittle our way of life and take on their customs, we are de-valued. Letecia, and Tameka, and Watermelondria (lol) are not airquote “ghetto" names. They are names which represent an African American tradition that we should be proud of.
We are excited to set off the 2016 HoodRich Entertainment: A Stage Play tour in the Rocket City, home to an historical HBCU, Alabama A&M. In Huntsville Al, everyone is a celebrity, to be among the elite is an honor, and we plan on make history #HSV.

U missed Wednesday night bible study! You are in luck our pick for inspirational women comes from the bible, The book of Ruth. She has made it to 3rd place on #wearugetthat’s 2015 list of inspiring women. Because of her obedience, loyalty, nurturing and giving spirit as well as her business sense she is someone to know. Plus it turns out she’s Jesus granny. 1. Sister Souljah 2.Mona Scott-Young 3. The book of Ruth (Bible)
