On Monday, January 18, 2016, the Houston Rockets were at Staples Center in Downtown Los angeles to face the Los Angeles Clippers. Since it was martin Luther King, Jr. Day, Clippers head coach Doc Rivers was asked about the importance of the man and the holiday.
Claudia Gestro covered the game and sent us this video of L.A. performance painter David Garibaldi painting a portrait of Dr. King during half time, with audio of Doc Rivers talking about Dr. King and the importance of having a day to commemorate the civil rights — human rights — leader.

We are not the typical news website – nor do we wish to be. We will be offering more than news and blogs, but an opportunity for fiction writers, poets, comedians and musicians to showcase their talent and skills. Much like when the Beatles formed Apple Corps Ltd, they opened the door to all kinds of inspiring talent that never really got a shot. From that came the likes of James Taylor and others. We hope by providing a similar approach we can shine the light on some tremendous undiscovered talent and at the same time offer some familiar voices who live in Los Angeles and beyond.
