Excerpt From Zocalo Public Square Blog!

Question: Are the Arts Dead in California’s Public Schools?
Here Are Some Ideas For Resuscitating Them

LACY DARRYL PHILLIPS
The arts will only live if we care

As a child, I was afforded all types of arts classes in school, including music, painting, choir, acting, and speech. It was impossible to imagine these valuable resources would ever become extinct! Well, they have, and it’s not conducive to a culturally rich and positive society.

The arts are dead in California’s public schools, and we all are at risk of the “idle mind” and “Devil’s playground.” We have witnessed a rapid decrease in funding over the past decade in all areas of the arts. These important tools are taken away from our children without an equivalent replacement. This leaves them to look to other means of satisfaction and escape, usually for the worst.

I believe the best way to revive the arts in California’s public schools is for each one of us to become proactive in the nurturing of our youth and to provide hands-on lessons, demonstrations, and workshops. We should use our voices, band together, and confront our politicians on a local and government level.

We all complain about injustice, yet very few of us do anything about it. We can peacefully become an integral part of the solution and not fuel the power of the problem. Parents, educators, and the children should come together to bring more light to the issue. We are only as strong as our weakest link!

Lacy Darryl Phillips (LDP) aka “Uncle Earl” is currently creator/producer of “The Ultimate Underground Experience,” a global music, arts and education project. Phillips is host/DJ of his weekly radio program “The Underground Experience,” which airs on KLED Live FM and The Southern Star Network. More information atwww.UltimateUnderground.com.

LOCAL ENTREPRENEUR – JEWEL THAIS-WILLIAMS – CELEBRATES JEWEL’S CATCH ONE NIGHT CLUBS’ FORTY YEARS IN FOUR-DAY EXTRAVAGANZA 

 The 40 year miracle of the survival of Jewel’s Catch One Night Club and the story behind it and its’ owner, Jewel Thais-Williams, will be celebrated during a four-day extravaganza from Friday, May 24th to Monday, May 27th in alternate locations – the Hilton LAX, 5711 W. Century Blvd. and Jewel’s Catch One, 4067 W. Pico Blvd.

Under the theme, “Past, Present and Beyond,” Jewel and her Catch One are bringing in local talent, famed rapper, Yoyo (Yolanda Whittaker), T.C. Carson (Living Single) and Jenifer Lewis (Poetic Justice, The Brothers, The Temptations, Think Like a Man), as well as other entertainers and supporters from throughout the 40 years, to help facilitate the festivities.

And, as an African American woman who has survived the 40-year entrepreneurial struggle, Jewel’s story of course, is an interesting one.  The stories she could tell about others, even more interesting.

Bitten by the entrepreneurial bug at age 9 while working in her uncle’s corner grocery store, Jewel spent the early years of her adult life working her way out of a job.  After serving as a maid, customer service representative, recreation director, probation attendant and deputy sheriff, Jewel turned her eyes toward working around her own schedule while completing a bachelors degree at UCLA.

“After many years of going to school part time and working various and sundry jobs, I decided I wanted to complete college,” Jewel explains.  “”In order to finish at UCLA I had to attend class during the day.  Therefore, I had to find some way to make a living around my going to school.  Self- employment was the answer for me.  It also was a dream come true.”

Her first business, a women’s clothing boutique went all right until the early 1970s recession hit.  “When economic times are bad women stop buying things for themselves, so I started looking for a recession proof business,” Jewel commented.  “My brother suggested I buy a liquor store, but that was too impersonal for me,” she added.  Then she saw an advertisement that a local bar was for sale.

Ironically, Jewel had worked across the street the bar in the past and knew it catered only to white patrons.  In addition to having no bartending or bar business skills, her situation was further exacerbated by the fact that in 1973 California laws banned women for tending bar.  Borrowing money and hocking personal possessions, Jewel bought the bar anyway.  The rest, as they say, is history.  And, what a rich and interesting history it has been.

First taking over one room, then the entire building, then the building next door, Jewel has occupied the corner of Pico and Norton Ave., for these 40 years.  The Catch has served as a haven for entertainers, artists, progressives, gays and people who appreciate diversity including Sammy Davis Jr., Warren Beatty, Melba Moore, Phyllis Hyman, Freda Payne, Chaka Khan, Sylvester, Weather Girls, Rick James, and Esther Phillips, among others.  Madonna held an album release part at The Catch.  Scenes from the movies “Pretty Woman” and the Wayans’ “I’m Gonna Git You Sucker,” have been shot there, as well as an episode from the popular television series, “Cold Case,” among many others.

After a negative experience with a “culturally incompetent” doctor, Jewel had an epiphany that sent her back to school.  “So many of the illnesses African American get – like hypertension and diabetes – are preventable.  But instead of helping us with prevention education, the medical profession treats us with pills and cuts us open,” she said.

Jewel went to China to study traditional Chinese medicine to learn safe alternative medical treatments.  In 1998, she earned a Master of Science degree from Samra University.  In 2001 she opened the Village Health Foundation, a non-profit specializing in nutrition, life style changes and diseases with high incidents in the African American community including HIV/AIDS, hypertension, diabetes, obesity and upper respiratory infections.  Operating on a donation-based or sliding pay scale, the Foundation also offers acupuncture/acupressure, traditional Chinese medicine, yoga, medication, massages, strength training, zumba, jazz dance, tai chi, drumming and much more.  In addition, emotional counseling, abuse treatment, individual, family and group counseling, as well as medication therapy and management are offered.

Jewel also has done her fair share of community service having co-founded the Minority AIDS Project and the Imani Unidos Food Pantry in South Los Angeles.  She also served as Board member of the AIDS Project of Los Angeles. In addition, she co-founded Rue’s House, the first housing facility for women with AIDS and their children in the United States.

The four-day 40th year Catch One anniversary extravaganza will also serve as a fundraiser for the Village Health Foundation.

Festivities open with a free 6 p.m., Friday, May 24th reception in the Hilton LAX that will be followed by a 9 p.m. “Black Party” Talent Night Reunion featuring an All Star Catch One Diva’s Concert.

Festivities continue at 9 p.m., Saturday, May 25th in the iconic Jewel’s Catch One, 4067 W. Pico Blvd., featuring famed rapper Yoyo (Yolanda Whittaker) and a 70s retro disco ball and costume of the decade competition.

The Sunday, May 26th celebration begins with a 5 p.m. VIP Award Reception at the Hilton LAX.  A 6 p.m. anniversary “main event” will offer a Concert Banquet featuring legendary actress Jenifer Lewis with T.C. Carson, best known for his role as Living Singles’ Kyle Barker, serving as Master of Ceremonies.  Dancing will follow.

The Catch One 40th anniversary celebration concludes with a 4 p.m., Monday, May 27th Happy Hour and Closing Reception at The Catch One.  All are welcome.  For additional information or to purchase tickets call 424.242.2824 also 424.24-Catch or view the website at www.catchone.org
