"Land of the Black Squirrels" by author Mwalim... Synopsis: Master storyteller, Mwalim weaves a vibrant and epic Hip-Hop Jazz folktale about the spirits that dwell within the jazz clubs, art galleries, performance spaces, and warehouse lofts transformed into underground dance clubs around New York City. Our tale begins in 1969, when Black squirrels began to appear in the Bronx. Obatunde Bey -a jazz musician and painter- leaves his desk job at the New York City Parks Department to open an arts academy in his Northeast Bronx neighborhood, "The Valley." Little did he know that his art house would quietly become the launch-pad of an underground arts movement. "The Bronx Boheme" made its debut at the Nuyorican Poet's Cafe in New York City in 2003 as a long-form storytelling piece. Land of the Black Squirrels is book one of the BRONX BOHEME series.

Excerpt from "Land of the Black Squirrels", by author Mwalim...

Mr. Brown settled back in his desk chair and took a sip of his rum and falernum.

“Calvin, white folks are not going to send their kids to your academy, and the Black folks who would send their kids for music and dance lessons are going to send them to white people. Do you really think these folks around here are interested in African dance, drumming, and jazz… do you really think this is going to work?” “It works in Harlem and Brooklyn.” “That’s Harlem and Brooklyn. This is the Bronx… full of Black folks trying to get away from Harlem and Brooklyn, and white folks trying to get away from us.” Tune in and hear passages read directly from the author himself tonight on Your Oral Diktion Blogtalkradio.com http://tobtr.com/11747856 Library line 516.666.9808 Press #1 with comments, questions and POETRY!
