Kings and Queens Accepting the Torch

I couldn’t think of a better way to end the African American History Month other than to post something inspirational that shows the continued spirit of African Americans despite the struggles that we have and are still overcoming from the injustices of discrimination. Just like our ancestors, we will continue to push forward!!!

These children have received the torch and are running with it!

Hope this vid brings you hope for the next generation. Also to have gratitude for those that sacrificed so much for us to have the privileges that we have today. This is evidence that if we live each day with the intent to touch the lives of others, there is a huge positive impact on humanity.

Guest Artist Maddie’s Double Platinum


My neice Maddie’s most recent performance from a national competition entry.  My family’s business, Caruthers’ Creative Center Dance Studio in Missouri, is one of the few African American owned businesses in the area that has stood the test of time. Congrats Maddie on your double platinum as well as the Competitive & Photogenic Award and 11th overall out of 80 dancers! Tough competition!

This multitalented teen was also nominated for All American in Cheer leading and made varsity squad as well as the competition team as an incoming freshman.  In addition, she excels at tumbling.  She has won numerous state band awards as well and is currently the only female trombone player.  She has recently had a dance gig with Kaufman Center and to top it off, she does all of this while maintaining a 4.0 G.P.A along with winning many academic accolades, including the President’s Academic Award.  She is an inspiration to those around her and a great influence on teens internationally.  Great job Maddie and keep it going!

Beloved One is a newly formed group featuring Akilah Mosley, Nikia Browne and yours truly, Monica Terry.  We recently performed our trio act of Poetry, Song and Dance for The Association of Civil Rights in Israel (ACRI) which was hosted by the daughters of Adinah Dorfman (Elana & Aviva Dorfman).  The subject was Freedom of Speech in honor of their mother, held in Jerusalem, Israel on December 21, 2016.

We would be happy to perform for your special occasion as well.  You can contact us at spitscattap@gmail.com or visit our site at http://belovedone.wixsite.com/beloved1
