I literally just this minute got a message from Stanford that a psychology professor and PhD who specializes in racial bias is going to be speaking at Cubberley the former high school auditorium or theater, in conversation with LaDoris Cordell.

Her name is Jennifer Eberhardt.

But in my mind Cubberley peaked a long time ago. In the 1990s it was quaint to bring world-class artist to a 40-year-old former high school building. In fact there’s a similar series but not as prolific and not a PPP in Campbell where I saw Kris Kristofferson once.  But now Carlee as a 60-year-old building that’s been out of commission from its original purpose for almost 40 years is just shabby.

So it reminds me of the time that Ledisi performing under her name Anibade which I guess is actually her middle namePlayed one of my showcases part of a larger jazz series and actually share the stage with Galactic and I believe it was Brown Fellinis.

Several years later Ledesi was named were nominated for a Grammy for best new artist.

No disrespect for Dr. Eberhardt. But I wonder in the case of the singer from New Orleans in Oakland before New York but with a African sounding or meaning name she explained it to me once her ethnicity creed and heritage probably helps her image at least if not her craft so there’s a bias for black female artists in the music biz.  But I wonder in the case of the singer from New Orleans in Oakland before New York but with a African sounding or meaning name she explained it to me once her ethnicity creed and heritage probably helps her image at least if not her craft so there’s a bias for black female artist in the music biz ( although I’m not really an expert although I have had three black clients who definitely used there at the city but in very different ways — I had a weird feeling in the recent Aretha film from 30 years before that she was being Svengali’d by somebody.  There is something just the other day in the Times about her errors fighting for their share. But a lot of people’s do that don’t day. Oh and I’m hoping to sneak out of real life and into the movies to see the thing about the student who was an immigrant and he quoted a west Indian political radical their version of Malcolm X.  Oh and I’m hoping to sneak out of real life and into the movies to see the thing about the student who was an immigrant and he quoted a west Indian political radical their version of Malcolm X Luce. I Watch Sunvalley serenade the Glenn Miller vehicle only long enough to see the Nicholas brothers and I know for a fact the Nicholas brothers had Kin who went to Stanford recently.
