Hometown Honor: Tanya Hart Becomes 42nd Speaker in Hackley Library’s Distinguished Lecture Series

I had the most incredible weekend. It isn’t often that you get a big honor from your hometown, but this weekend, I became the 42nd speaker in the Distinguished Lecture Series sponsored by the Hackley Library Foundation in Muskegon, Michigan. Now, Muskegon is a port city in western Michigan, right on Lake Michigan, a beautiful town. It’s where I was born and raised.

Thank you, family and friends who really showed up and showed out. We had a great time. I got a standing ovation on my lecture, which was all about diversity and inclusion. I will share it with everyone when it’s available on Facebook. And thank you so much to the Hackley Library Foundation for this very special honor.

Say what? Lenny Kravitz, the sexiest man alive, says he has been celibate for almost a decade. Well, Lenny says his rockstar lifestyle really caught up with him, and he’s been on a spiritual journey. Good for you, Lenny, and whenever you decide to come off, honey, there’s a line of women in queue to help you out. I know Gayle King is positioning to be in front of that line.

Black Music Month: R&B Money Tour with Tank, Keri Hilson, and Carl Thomas Kicks Off to Great Reviews

It’s Black Music Month. Lots of tours will be happening. The R&B Money Tour with Tank, Keri Hilson, and Carl Thomas kicked off this weekend, and it’s a hit, y’all. I cannot wait till they come to L.A. I think that’s later this month. All of those folks on that tour just bring their A game all of the time.

Good for them. You’ll be hearing a lot more about what’s happening all of this month during our very special Black Music Month coverage.
