Dallas International Film Festival gaining steam and standing
By Jackie Wright
They call it "Big D" and there is a reason for it. The Dallas International Film Festival with its "Star Awards" closing weekend is just a reminder that "they do it big in Texas." The Dallas Film Society led by Lynn McBee, Chairman of the Board of Directors and Lee Papert, President & CEO, pulled out all the stops as it honored Laura Linney, Bernie Pollack, Eric Pleskow, and Gabourey Sidibe with "Dallas Star Awards", last Friday kicking off the concluding weekend. In addition, The Dallas International Film Festival (DIFF) screened more than 180 films from 27 countries during its sixth annual event, April 12-22.
From the Festival Village at Mockingbird Station to the strategic use of venues such as historic Majestic Theater, the Hotel Palomar, Texas Theater, Nasher Sculpture Center, it was a stylish artistic cultural experience graciously infused with southern comfort and hospitality.
Covering the event in conjunction with San Francisco based LaHitz Media, this reporter was reminded of director and filmmaker Jacquie Taliaferro's constant refrain about "jobs and money" generated by the film and entertainment industry and the need to cultivate commerce in communities of color as films and entertainment are created.

The African Diaspora Connects at Cannes
Posted by Posting Admin on June 3rd, 2009
French Film Actor Eriq Ebouaney
During the 62nd Cannes International Film Festival, the African Diaspora connected to celebrate art and humanitarian efforts. San Francisco-based LaHitz Media honored the work of international star Eriq Ebouaney with the Sojourner Truth Award that is presented annually at Cannes and in Los Angeles at the Pan African Film Festival.
Jimmy Jean-Louis, Haitian actor and star of NBC's "Heroes" presented the award to Ebouaney. "Eriq, it is my pleasure to present the Sojourner Truth Award to you on behalf of LaHitz Media in recognition of your artistic excellence and commitment to giving back to our community," said Jean-Louis.
The award was presented at the South African Pavilion, the Cannes home base for National Film and Video Foundation of South Africa, headed by CEO Eddie Mbato, a previous recipient of the award that was presented by Rhamatou Kieta, internationally acclaimed Nigerian filmmaker, also a recipient of the award.
"We are here at the South African Pavilion, and I stand with Eddie, a former recipient, who is putting a fire under all of Africa to grow its film industry. I appreciate the significance of this award that brings the African Diaspora together to recognize the best of the arts and humanitarian work," said Ebouaney.
"I think it is important that we also make note of the fact that Eriq was one of the celebrities to pledge support of the Help Mama Africa campaign said Jacquie Taliaferro, filmmaker and Director of LaHitz Media.
Help Mama Africa was begun over the Internet in March 2009 by African Diaspora artists, filmmaker Taliaferro, international French Senegalese designer and owner of Afric' Elance, Angele De Medeiros, broadcast producer, and owner of production company Baobab Motion, and award-winning journalist, publicist, and writer Jackie Wright, principal of Wright Enterprises. Help Mama Africa is a foundation with roots in the U.S., France and Senegal that has begun its work in bringing awareness and funds to the successful life-saving work of Professor Dr. Claude Moreira who saves 70 percent of the children treated for cancer at the Le Dantec Hospital in Dakar, Senegal.

Jackie Wright of Wright Enterprises has her own story and it's because of the sensitivity developed from the media surrounding the loss of her father as a Fallen Hero serving as a Honor Guard for Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara on March 9, 1964 that she works fast and accurately with compassion for those who desire media coverage and those who find themselves in the midst of unwanted media inquiries.
Christmas 2014 Arlington National Cemetery
As 2014 neared its end, the Wright Family noted its accomplishment of honoring Fallen Viet Nam War Hero Sp5 Wyley Wright Jr. and his wife, Ouida F. Wright by having them buried at Arlington National Cemetery during it's 150th Anniversary. Wright, who served as an Honor Guard for Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara at the time of his death was moved from a segregated cemetery in Jacksonville, Florida and reburied with his wife Ouida F. McClendon Wright at Arlington National Cemetery on March 10, 2014. It was the day after the March 9 anniversary of their deaths in 1964 and 1970 respectively. See Full Article.
Days after the article was written with the reference that the Wright Siblings were still waiting on the headstone to mark their parents new resting place, they received a photo from their cousin retired Major Dexter McLendon Sr. that his friend had taken after the Cristmas wreath laying by Wreaths Across America. So days before Christmas, the Wright Siblings not only received the gift of knowing the headstone had been placed, but also the gift of Mrs. Ginger Shannon Young had fulfilled her promise, "I'll make sure your parents will get a wreath for Christmas." The Wrights met Mrs. Shannon Young at the reburial of their parents in Arlington on March 10, 2014. They had a connection that for years the Wrights were not aware of, both Lt. Kenneth A. Shannon and Sp5 Wyley Wright Jr. were honored at the base in Vinh Long, Viet Nam (Shannon-Wright Compound) , after their deaths in March of 1964. On the Viet Nam War Memorial, their names are near each other. Fifty years after their deaths, their families connected in life to remember the sacrifice they and others made to the United States of America.
Mrs. Ginger Shannon Young, volunteer with Wreaths Across America lays a Christmas Wreath at Arlington Gravesite of Sp5 Wyley Wright Jr. and Ouida Fay Wright.
The names of Helicopter Crew Chief, Sp5 Wyley Wright Jr., who died March 9, 1964 as an honor guard for Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara and Pilot Lt. Kenneth A. Shannon, who died March 15, 1964, both of the U.S. Army 114th Aviation Company, follow each other on the Viet Nam War Memorial.
