PRSUN Radio chats with County of Kings' Lemon Andersen

Image
Lemon Andersen is my guest Wednesday at 11 a.m. on PRSUN Radio at www.blogtalkradio.com/prsunradio . County of Kings is playing now in NYC. About Lemon and his County of Kings: Half Puerto Rican. Half Norwegian. Two-time felon. One hell of a show. Featured earlier this year as part of The Public Theater's Under The Radar Festival,Lemon Andersen's County of Kings gives a tough, yet poignant biographical account of a good kid growing up in an unforgiving environment. Lemon, whose parents met at a methadone clinic and passed away from AIDS, served two prison sentences before he was 21 and won a Tony before he turned 30. His on-stage memoir touches on young love, the birth of hip hop, slinging crack, ballet, stealing car parts, prison, and poetry as he takes the audience on an astonishing and surprising one-man journey toward self-discovery. Weaving hard-edged drama with urban poetry, the Brooklyn born and bred performer tells his coming-of-age story with profound honesty, c

NYC to show its solidarity with Puerto Rico's National Strike

There will be a rally tomorrow at 5 p.m. in New York City in support of the national strike in Puerto Rico . This comes after Puerto Rico Gov.

To participate in NYC's rally: 5 p.m. Thursday, October 15th PRFAA, 135 West 50th street (between 6th & 7th Avenues), Manhattan The NYC Chapter of National Congress of Puerto Rican Rights is a sponsor. Puerto Rico Sun is in solidarity. While it is true that the governor did need to cut workers from the government payroll because it is too big, the sudden number of layoffs are just too drastic and negatively impact too many poor and working class families on the island. These
