TODAY’S SPECIAL GUEST

AUTHOR & PERFORMANCE POET SAPPHIRE

She brought us the raw, tear-jerking story of young, battered, scarred and poverty stricken mother Clarieece Precious Jones in the film adaptation of her original masterpiece “Push” in 2009’s breakthrough Academy Award-winning movie “Precious.” Today, the story everyone should experience is continuing with Sapphire’s latest release “The Kid.”

Don’t consider it a sequel. Consider it a tale about the life of Precious’ son as their journey, their heartbreak, their experiences are documented for the world to live right along with them. With streetwise candor and a picturesque viewpoint, Sapphire always brings something real and something special.
