A Taste of Austin, Texas

did you know?
DID YOU KNOW THESE FACTS ABOUT AUSTIN?

  1. Austin is the capital of the U.S. state of Texas and the seat of Travis County. Austin has a population of 786,386 (2009 U.S. Census estimate).

  2. In 1860, 38% of Travis County residents were slaves. In 1861, with the outbreak of the American Civil War, voters in Austin and other Central Texas communities voted against secession. However, as the war progressed and fears of attack by Union forces increased, Austin contributed hundreds of men to the Confederate forces. The African American population of Austin swelled dramatically after the enforcement of the Emancipation Proclamation in Texas by Union General Gordon Granger at Galveston in an event commemorated as Juneteenth. Black communities such as Wheatville, Pleasant Hill, and Clarksville were established around Austin by these newcomers.

  3. Austin is considered to be a major center for high tech. Thousands of graduates each year from the engineering and computer science programs at The University of Texas at Austin provide a steady source of employees that help to fuel Austin's technology and defense industry sectors.

  4. The skyline has drastically changed in recent years, and the residential real estate market has remained relatively strong. Downtown growth has been aided by the presence of a popular live music and nightlife scene, museums, restaurants, and Lady Bird Lake, considered one of the city's best recreational spots. South by Southwest (SXSW) is hosted downtown and is one of the largest music festivals in the United States, with more than 2,000 performers playing in more than 90 venues around Downtown Austin over four days, in March.

  5. Austinites take pride in personal eccentricities. Austin is the only major Texas city that has no ordinance against women appearing topless in public. "Keep Austin Weird" has become a local motto in recent years, featured on bumper stickers and t-shirts. This motto has not only been used in promoting Austin's eccentricity and diversity, but is also meant to bolster support of local independent businesses.

  6. Austin was selected as the No. 2 Best Big City in "Best Places to Live" by Money magazine in 2006, and No. 3 in 2009, and also the "Greenest City in America" by MSN. According to Travel & Leisure magazine, Austin ranks No. 1 on the list of cities with the best people, referring to the personalities and attributes of the citizens.

  7. Austin has a humid subtropical climate, characterized by hot summers and mild winters. On average, Austin receives 33.6 inches of rain per year, with most of the precipitation in the spring, and a secondary maximum in the fall. Austin is usually at least partially sunny, receiving nearly 2650 hours, or 60.3% of the possible total, of bright sunshine per year. Austin summers are usually hot and humid, with average July and August highs in the mid-90s °F. Winters in Austin are mild and relatively dry. For the entire year, Austin averages 88 days below 45 °F and 24 days when the minimum temperature falls below freezing.

Up Tour 2016 ATX Premiere of NAME DROPPING

- Diakonos Ministries & Acting Bad Productions Presents Historical Drama NAME DROPPING by Frank Corey Shields Sunday, July 31, 2016 @ 4pm -

Up Tour 2016 ATX Premiere of NAME DROPPING


Austin, TX (July 01, 2016) – The Wake Up Tour Premiere production of Name Dropping will showcase at the Don T. Haynes, Jr., Theater of LBJ High School, July 31, 2016, at 4pm, courtesy of Diakonos Ministries and Acting Bad Productions.

The Wake Up Tour challenges it’s audience to choose a more positive and enhancing self-regard as a necessity of life. This time-bending premiere explores the nature of self-identification and questions the cost of burying the past in pursuit of the future. It’s about choosing your being by choosing your name.

The play is written by Frank Corey Shields, award winning Filmmaker, Actor, Director, Writer, Producer, and Playwright from Houston, TX, known for Street Tales of Terror (2004), Peri’l (2006), and The Insured (2011).

Name Dropping examines the concept of racial labeling, a practice initiated by Europeans after the slave trade to classify and ostracize African descendants forcibly relocated to America. During the span of African descendants in America, representatives from each era of Name Dropping are instrumental in helping persons of color self-identify. Despite over five centuries in the U.S., the communities of African descendants still search for their proper designation. The “names” Negro, Colored, Black, African American, and yes, the notorious N Word discuss their troubled pasts and complicated futures to determine whose name drops next.

The Wake Up Tour’s most recent project involved casting, directing, and engineering the sold out debut and encore production of a stage play about mental challenges and substance abuse, The Pink Elephant In the Middle of the Getto, written by local Poet, Author, Playwright, and Actor, Trina “TiTi Ladette” Cleveland.

Partnering with The Wake Up Tour is Diakonos Ministries led by Pastor AJ Quinton and their “Serving Beyond Sunday” belief to embrace, educate, and empower individuals shown by their “Church in the Park” services.

“Church in the Park” is where The Wake Up Tour Founders, Curtis Von of #ActingBad Productions, E’tian LaRue of #NOMAD Productions, and Sonya Lyne of #getACTIVE Productions converged to serve Diakonos.

Von is a seasoned actor who played a major role in the Black Cinema Classic, Jason’s Lyric (1994), and toured with Tyler Perry’s epic stage play, Why Did I Get Married. LaRue is a Harold J. Haynes’ Encore Theater Hall of Famer. Lyne is a Texas Longhorn graduate, NCAA Volleyball National Championship Runner-Up, MVP, Team Captain, and Endowed Scholarship recipient with international experience playing for CJD Berlin in Germany.

The Wake Up Tour premiere of Name Dropping will showcase local artisans from the greater Austin area with handmade beauty products by Black Butterfly Bath and Body owner Gloria Manor, handmade jewelry by Dovie’s owner Ayana Flewellen, handmade garments by A’freeCaa Clothing owner Tyga’zo Juniior, canvas artwork by Fenomenal “Flashe” Empire CEO Ashely “Flashe” Gordon, plus graphic tees designed by the founders of The Wake Up Tour, and autographed books by Amazon & Kindle Bestselling Author, TiTi Ladette.

Energizing the show is Emcee, Mr. Mareyo, Poet, Artist, and Entertainer from spoken word haven, Killeen, TX. Post show elements include a Q&A with the cast to answer questions and an audience participation raffle.

Fatima Mann & Chas Moore of the Austin Justice Coalition, Ronnie Russell, CEO of Texas Black Pages, Killeen, TX, and LaKenya Mason and Margaret Haule, Co-Directors of Black Lives Matter Austin will serve our event culture with high quality, community engagement information as Resource Vendors. Black Pflugerville, Jump On It Concerts & Outreach, and Good People 4 Good Cause, local community organizations, will function as tour sponsors, while Complete Culture Radio & TV host DJ Rubina Iqbal will live stream promotional broadcasts while NOKOA Newspaper runs headlines.

Kino Lorber

Presents
AN HONORARY SCREENING OF

TOWER

- Directed by Keith Maitland Executive Produced by Meredith Vieira & Luke Wilson -

TOWER


On July 31st, almost 50 years to the anniversary of our country's first mass school shooting, the Bullock Texas State History Museum, in Austin, TX, will hold an honorary screening of Keith Maitland's award-winning documentary, TOWER. On August 1st, 1966, a sniper rode the elevator to the top floor of the University of Texas Tower and opened fire, holding the campus hostage for 96 minutes. When the gunshots were finally silenced, the toll included 16 dead, three dozen wounded, and a shaken nation left trying to understand. Combining archival footage with rotoscopic animation in a dynamic, never-before-seen way, TOWER reveals the untold stories of the witnesses and survivors of America's first mass school shooting, when the worst in one man brought out the best in so many others.

At this very moment, according to the Texas Penal Code, an individual is prohibited from intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly possessing or going with a firearm on the physical premises of a school or educational institution. Though, onAugust 1st of this year, all Texas state 4-year colleges and universities will effectively permit individuals who have obtained a concealed handgun license (CHL) to carry their loaded, concealed weapon on college and university buildings...

TOWER explores this untold history through the first-person stories of seven specific characters: two students who were shot that day, the two police officers who ended the siege, two civilians who inserted themselves into the story to provide aid to victims and police, and the radio reporter who broadcast live from the scene for more than an hour and a half, and whose broadcast was picked up nationally, bringing the events in Austin to listeners around the nation. Exploring the ways in which this tragedy affected our characters over a lifetime offers a window into the wide spectrum of human response and recovery. The importance of sharing one’s experience openly and creating community with fellow victims and witnesses is illustrated through the regrets and revelations of our characters over the course of fifty years.

Variety named Keith Maitland to their list of “10 Documakers to Watch”, this spring and hails the film as “A gripping dramatic reconstruction, a tribute to the heroes and the fallen…Keith Maitland’s film weaves rotoscopic animation, archival footage and present-day interviews into a uniquely cinematic memorial”, while Indiewire says “Keith Maitland’s strikingly original ‘TOWER’ recreates the drama with a mixture of animation and contemporary interviews, imbuing the catastrophe with renewed immediacy.”

Join us for this special screening in honor of the anniversary, and the day before UT Austin unveils its new memorial. The screening, which starts at 4:25pm will be followed by a discussion with the filmmakers, survivors and eye witnesses of the shooting. Attending survivors include Claire Wilson James, John "Artly Fox, Ramiro "Ray" Martinez, Neal Spelce and Aleck Hernandez Jr. along with filmmakers Keith Maitland, Megan Gilbride, Craig Staggs and Pamela Colloff.
