All of This is Yours, The Series, Takes Off!

Published

Discover the world through the eyes of the children who live in its four corners!

In an era plagued by hatred and hyper-nationalism, an ebullient teacher takes young viewers on a global journey. Along the way, she’ll share the ways that children in vastly different cultures live, learn and experience their world. Costa Rica to Capetown. 13 episodes/13 international destinations. Adventure, learning, hilarity and joy ensue in the global community.

Short Summary

All of This Is Yours provides young audiences with the educational tools they need to begin creating the world they want to live in as global citizens through an episodic journey filled with unique cultural experiences and practical lessons that children can use in their everyday lives. The campaign will raise money for a pilot episode which will take Robin to San Jose Costa Rica where she will meet Amanda, a young girl ready to share her life, and her extended family, with the world.

Robin Hancock has been an avid traveler all her life. While working on a doctorate in education, she got the idea to create a series that blended her love for travel with her passion for early childhood ed. Her life’s work examines the ways that identifying as a global citizen can empower children to walk in the world with confidence, pride in their communities and awareness of their positions as members of a large and vibrant global community.

This is Robin’s passion project and her heart’s desire for the last ten years has been to make this series a reality. Your contribution to the creation of the pilot episode will contribute to a field desperately in need of new and exciting voices. No gift is too small (or too big)!!

The Impact

Nowhere on television is there a travel series that is  1) hosted by a woman of color 2) geared towards educating children and 3) focused on teaching global citizenship. The travel genre remains a deeply segregated space and very few series in the genre are created intentionally for children. This series will counter the negative messages of division and hyper-nationalism that are so prevalent in our society. Our goals for the series are to:

– Provide the (near absent) representation of central characters of color in the travel show genre.

– Provide a travel series that is geared towards young children in a genre that is tailored almost exclusively to adults.

– Create an educational platform for children to learn about the world through observing the experiences of other children like them who live in and negotiate that world as well.

– Create a context where children are learning the primary tenets of Global Citizenship early in life.

– Challenge the messages of separation and division currently being taught through our government, media and social spaces.

In the picture below you can see Lee Daniels the creator of the hit show ‘Empire’ in the picture with Ola Osundairoe on set. It was also being reported that Jussie worked out with them.

The 2 were charged with battery Friday and have now been released without any charges. Chief Communications Officer of the Chicago Police Department Anthony Gugliemi tweeted, “Due to new evidence as a result of today’s interrogations, the individuals questioned by police in the Empire case have now been released without charging and detectives have additional investigative work to complete.”

The attorney for Abel and Ola Osundairo had this to say about the case.

Media outlets are reporting that Jussie has now hired high-powered attorney Michael Monico if that name doesn’t ring a bell this will. Monico represented Michael Cohen who was President’s Trump’s former attorney.

Of course, you know this story is developing and we will keep you updated as new details emerge.

Police Questioning Two Suspects in Jussie Smollett Case

Jussie Smollett

Police have identified two Nigerian men as suspects in Jussie Smollett’s case. The men have been questioned in the attack on the “Empire” star and have been arrested on probable cause.

Identified as brothers, the two men have been questioned by police in Chicago following their arrival from Nigeria. The suspects were apprehended at Chicago O’Hare International Airport on Wednesday after authorities learned one of them was connected to “Empire.” Following the Chicago Police receiving and executing a search warrant, authorities are not disclosing what was found within the shared apartment.

In a statement provided to Associated Press by Anthony Guglielmi, Chief Communications Officer of the Chicago PD, there was emphasis placed on the nature of the suspects arrest. At this time, both persons have been arrested for probable cause alone.

Breaking the Silence

For the first time since the January 29th attack, Jussie Smollett has sat down for an interview. Robin Roberts of Good Morning America inquired about what happened that fateful evening and how Jussie was responding to those who doubt his claims. Jussie took the opportunity to share what happened during the attack, clear up what his assailants said while assaulting him, and added his manager was on the phone the entire time.

When it comes to what his attackers looked like, Jussie says, “I can’t tell you what color their eyes were” as their appearance was obstructed by ski masks. He provided a body description to officers and noted that he only saw them completely as they were running away. Robin then asked if Jussie believed the men in the photo were his attackers and he said, “I don’t have any doubt in my mind that’s them.”

New Tape Implicating R. Kelly Has Surfaced

mm

Published

on

Lawyer Michael Avenatti, who recently represented Stormy Daniels, has revealed to CNN that prosecutors investigating R. Kelly are in possession of another video implicating the R&B singer.

Michael Avenatti acquired the tape through representing a whistle-blower against R. Kelly. Last weekend, he turned it over to Cook County authorities in Chicago. The video, which is on VHS, has since been obtained and viewed by CNN. It allegedly shows R. Kelly involved with a 14-year-old. Although no mention of the girl’s name or age is made, Kelly and the victim both refer to her genitals as “14-year-old p***y.” The girl mentions it six times throughout the course of the video.

Early Valentine’s Day morning, Avenatti released a statement on Twitter that describes the horrific tape. In the memo he emphasizes, “the time frame of the sexual assaults depicted in the video is within the Illinois statue of limitations.” As of now, R. Kelly’s attorney Steve Greenberg maintains no knowledge of any new evidence or prosecuting case developments.

The footage, which has never been discussed before today, is roughly 42 minutes and 45 seconds long. Clear and unobstructed, a man appearing to be R. Kelly can be seen performing sex acts with the girl. At one point he commands that she urinates. After she complies, he urinates on her. The victim can be heard referring to Kelly as “daddy” repeatedly during the tape.

Following the release of Surviving R. Kelly, authorities have worked in Georgia and Illinois in an effort to mute the singer and end his sexual tyranny once and for all. With parallels being drawn between the tape from 2002 and this current piece of evidence, the prosecution is confident they can bring the singer to justice.
