Plug of the Week! Writer/Director/Editor- Shayla Racquel, native of Columbia, SC and FAMU grad.
Diagnosed with Sickle Cell Disease at birth and having a stroke at the young age of 12, her childhood battle with the disease is what brought her closer to the art of storytelling. Writing, creating, and watching ideas come to life served as a getaway from her struggle with the disease, filling her with euphoria through the pain. She began to explore and hone her craft during her collegiate years at Florida A&M University by directing and editing numerous videos for businesses and organizations around the Tallahassee community.
Since then, Shayla has gone on to write/produce/and direct the YouTube webseries, Quarter Century and recently debuted her first short film- Life’s Checklist.There are currently two seasons of Quarter Century, the first featuring DC’s vibrant culture, while the second season showcases the liveliness of young black adults in New York. She uses the series to support and promote Black owned businesses, indie music artists, and up and coming fashion designers.
Let’s Talk About It: Orange Juice & Abandonment
There has been a lot of chatter about whether or not if it’s appropriate to address and/or discipline other people’s children. So we’re talking about it, as a single woman and a mother of two … this should be interesting!
This trailblazing songstress is changing the game. And she’s introducing her talented and futuristic crew to the world! The new and riveting music of today’s civil rights movement is in Irene’s Beats this week-Thanks Wondaland. Eye Spy Inspiration is dedicated to all of our listeners who are trying to balance hope with acceptance.
That’s it for this week.
Listen. Laugh. And share!!
See y’all in the future!
