Psychologist & Talk Show Host Dr. Brenda:

Dear Friends,

"Creativity is the window to the soul" quotes the German philosopher Rudolph Steiner. This artistic window into our inner being is wide open in the current Lorraine Hansberry Theater production, Blue Orange, in San Francisco. The play features the gifted film and TV actor Carl Lumbly. Over lunch this week Mr. Lumbly shared a bit with me about his character, Christopher, an African-Brit man who may be sane, or not? Two Anglo psychiatrists attempt to help him, or not? And one or both of them may be racist, or not?

017With an insistent power Blue Orange unfolds in a mental hospital in London challenging us to look about us and within us. Lumbly's description of Christopher's longing for a nice green place with palm trees, touches one of the great issues confronting we cement and steel enclosed urban dwellers. Research shows that an environment lacking 'natural energy' promotes 'environmental psychosis'. Perhaps this is why Lumbly states that on any given day he himself feels a little crazy. As he spoke about what drew him to this part, he related his own process of grieving the passing of his much loved wife, 19 months ago. Lumbly compared his own struggles with those of his character. "Christopher made sense to me," he stated.

I believe Christopher will make sense to you as well and ultimately will help us all to make sense of ourselves and our lives. I was deeply moved by the story and the potent mixture of threat and vulnerability in Mr. Lumbly's portrayal of Christopher. He brought to mind many of the day treatment patients I worked with many years ago and frankly, the way I feel when a humdinger life lesson presents itself. You know what I mean, right?

For a great evening of entertainment grab your tickets now for Blue Orange! Be sure to linger in the Lorraine Hansberry Theatre's lovely salon for after theater drinks and conversation, you will have plenty to hash out after Blue Orange.  Visit www.lhtsf.org for your tickets and more details.

Centered on an officer involved shooting, writer/performer Jinho “The Piper” Ferreira takes the viewer on an emotionally charged ride with unexpected twists and turns. The Piper seamlessly travels through 17 characters, each with their own convictions, logic, and prejudices. Cops and Robbers takes no prisoners as it challenges the viewer to question all preconceived notions of “right” and “wrong”.
Wright Enterprises re-posts commentary by LaHitz Media CEO, Jacquie Taliaferro. In a City where the arts were once revered to the point artists could depend on San Francisco City officials to create measures to ensure they had a place, that notion of having a place for artists to thrive has gone by the wayside. Amid Ellis Act Eviction, foreclosures, and the City's Out Migration of African Americans Report, artists like Taliaferro find themselves fighting to stabilize their businesses as their homes are under attack. Taliaferro is fighting Wells Fargo Bank to keep his family home of over 50 years. From fighting on the City Hall steps to seeking redress in the courts, Taliaferro takes a moment to express his concerns in the following commentary.
