‘Black-ish’ star Jenifer Lewis appears at ATL’s ‘Power Rising Summit’ [PHOTOS]

Written by | Ray Cornelius

I had the pleasure of meeting iconic TV, film and stage actress—JENIFER LEWIS—on Saturday afternoon during the Power Rising Summit. The four-day women’s conference took place at Atlanta’s historic Westin Peachtree Plaza Hotel and featured inspirational and informative sessions with Star Jones, Cicely Tyson, Erika Alexander and Elder Bernice King.

Lewis took part in a very powerful conversation about black women and mental health along with the First Lady of New York City—Chirlane McCray. She also sold copies of her new memoir, The Mother of Black Hollywood, and took pictures with her adoring fans.

Ms. Lewis is EVERYTHING you think she is and more! While taking photos I watched her embrace, talk to and cry with a number of attendees who were either personally dealing with mental health issues or had family members who were suffering from bipolar disorder.

Ms. Lewis was very open and honest with us and even shared more “pearls of wisdom” about self-love and finding joy in the midst our current circumstances or situations. She also opened up about the advice she received from the late, great Dick Gregory and how the passing of actor/dancer Gregory Hines changed her perspective on living life.

What you see is truly what you get and I absolutely love her for it.

Stay tuned to my radio show UPFRONT as I will be featuring Ms. Lewis in a future segment where we will discuss her book, her illustrious career and more .

All the swimming, synchronized swimming, and diving events of the 2008
Olympics were held at the Beijing National Aquatics Center (better known as the “Water Cube”), which was claimed to be built to
increase the speed of the swimmers.[5] The main pool is about 10 feet (3.0
deep, 3 feet (0.91 deeper than any other Olympic pool.[5] The lane lines, nicknamed “wave eaters”,
buffer the waves produced by swimmers while they stroke.[5] The technological advances
of the pool were enhanced by several advantages inherent to an indoor swimming venue,
namely: temperature, humidity and lighting control.
Even the wide decks were built to help give the swimmers a sense of space.[5]The swimming program for 2008 was expanded from 2004, with the
addition of the 10 marathon open water swimming events,
bringing the total number of events to 34 (17 each
for men and women). The following events were contested (all pool events were
long course, and distances are in metres unless stated):[6].

Wishful thinking is when you form thoughts that are unlikely to come true. You are fantasizing about things you want and you are thinking that you are very unlikely to actually get them. You are also thinking that you don’t already have it. Recently, the bank has been acquiring failed banks from the FDIC. The transactions are advantageous: the FDIC guarantees at least 80% of the losses on each loan, the acquirer makes favorable net interest margin spreads (OZRK has a whopping NIM of 5.61% due in large part due to these covered loans), and OZRK expands at little cost. OZRK has funded most of these acquisitions with money made with through the bargain gains made by the deals themselves.
