I had a great time speaking with Art "Chat Daddy" Sims on "Real Talk, Real People" WVON 1690 AM, The Talk of Chicago, for Black Music Month about some of my memorable music moments, interviewing legendary recording artists on the pages of JET and EBONY magazines as an editor for both. My former JET magazine colleague, Clarence Waldron, joined us via phone. Toi Salter and Lisa Rollins were co-hosts for the evening. Rollins recounted lovely memories about John H. Johnson and Michael Jackson, explaining their dedication toward contributing to UNCF where she is regional director for workplace initiatives. I told her that it was in fact Mr. Johnson who suggested that MJ work with the organization. To this day, scholarships are still given out in MJ's name. The EBONY Fashion Fair's Chicago performances were always sponsored by UNCF.

I am Dr. Margena A. Christian aka DocM.A.C. Some folks feel my way with words, so I thought I would drop a few random "soul lessons" with a little bit of this and a whole lot of that. Keep the faith and always trust the process.
