Essence Atkins Brings the Drama to OWN’s ‘AMBITION’
August 2, 2019
It might be premature to state this but I think OWN’S "AMBITION" will be a very successful and long-running series for the network. One of the reasons I offer this opinion so boldly is because the series deals with love, money, ambition, and betrayal all being played out by characters that we all know or dare I offer this, characters that we might ourselves become if faced with the same circumstances. Money and power are always alluring and when combined are intoxicating and addictive. ... read more »

Rep. Barragán Statement on Juneteenth
June 20, 2019
“On June 19, 1865, more than six months after the Emancipation Proclamation went into effect, Union Major General Gordon Granger arrived in Galveston, Texas and declared that all slaves of African descent located in Texas were indeed free. That historic day, now remembered as Juneteenth, marked the end of one of the saddest chapters in our nation’s history. More than 150 years later, Juneteenth causes us to not only reflect on the tragic, centuries-long enslavement of nearly four million Africans and their descendants in the United States, but to remain vigilant in the fight to overcome racism, both institutional and societal, that exists in our country today. The Juneteenth observance serves as reminder that our nation still has work to do to overcome the great challenges that communities of color and so many others face in the pursuit for equality and justice.” ... read more »

Letting the ‘Cat’ Out of the Bag on Sacramento PD
May 23, 2019
Shocking. Shameful. Unconscionable. Intolerable.
