"Punking Out In Paris. (Or Why I Left American When Trump Was Elected)."


Our Special Guests are

AUDREY EDWARDS
Writer, Author, Editor (Former Editor And Executive Editor Of Essence Magazine, Et. Al.), New Paris Expat

TOMMIE-LEE MCKENZIE
Bassist

SAYS AUDREY EDWARDS:
"I'd like to discuss why for me leaving America was imperative after Trump became President.
Some people thought I was" punking out" by leaving. Some thought I was showing courage. The point is, making the decision to leave one's native land is never easy and is always transformative.

But I knew that the America I was born into would no longer feel safe under Trump because his political leadership would be hostile at worst (or indifferent at best) to my aspirations as a black and a woman: as a mother of a black son and a grandmother to four black girls, as a journalist who has always reported from the blurred lines of race and gender."

ABOUT AUDREY EDWARDS:
Audrey Edwards, a contributing writer for Essence magazine and former contributing editor at More magazine, was a magazine editor for more than two decades, having held the positions of Editor and Executive Editor at Essence; Vice President and Executive Editor at Black Enterprise magazine; and a Senior Editor at More and Family Circle magazines.

Her media career also includes extensive freelance magazine writing, with her work having been published in O, The Oprah Magazine; the New York Times Sunday Magazine; Vibe; the Columbia Journalism Review, among others; and the online publications The Huffington Post, The Root.com and Salon.com.

Her most recent work is the book collaboration she did with Edward Lewis, co-founder and publisher of Essence magazine, titled The Man From Essence: Creating a Magazine for Black Women, published by Atria Books (Simon & Schuster) in 2014. In addition, she is the co-author of Children of the Dream: The Psychology of Black Success , published by Doubleday.

In addition to authoring books and magazine features, Audrey has taught magazine writing and magazine editing at the Graduate School of Journalism at Columbia University and New York University’s Publishing Institute.

For the past three decades Audrey Edwards has divided her freelance journalism career with being a real estate broker. She ran her own company, Plaza Properties, in Brooklyn, New York, for 22 years before joining the real estate firm Brown Harris Stevens in 2008 as an Associate Broker.

She is a member of the Real Estate Board of New York.

"NAPOLEON AND JOSEPHINE: A LOVE STORY. A DESTINY"

Josephine was a Reign of Terror widow who was “connected” to many of the influential policy makers of the French government
(most notably Paul Barras).

Napoleon may have initially began an affair with Josephine to take advantage of her connections.

Love letters sent from the both however tell a different reason for their affair.

Napoleon and Josephine married on March 9 1796...two days later, Napoleon left to lead the Army of Italy.

Affairs on both sides will cool passions and Josephine’s inability to give Napoleon a child, and the need for a political alliance with Austria,
will prompt his divorce from Josephine in 1810.
