A COMPLEXION CHANGE
Inauguration Day, January 20, 2009
Barack Hussein Obama

My Thoughts on Barack Obama

In 2008, history was made when Barack Obama was elected president. This made me feel very proud to be an African American.
America has taken a big step in accepting diversity in political leadership roles. By that I mean voting for and electing our first African American president, Barack Obama. Barack Obama is an inspiration to me, because he proved that there can always be change as long as you are willing to work toward it.
I also believe, he will make every effort to find a peaceful solution to ending the war in Iraq, solving the crisis with the economy, and any other crisis that may effect America and its people in the future.
Barack Obama is an inspiration to every American - Black, White, Asian, and Hispanic.

Tyler Jerami Griffith, 12 years old
Chicago/Illinois, USA

Meine Gedanken zu Barack Obama

Im Jahr 2008 wurde Geschichte gemacht, als Barack Obama zum Präsidenten gewählt wurde. Dies machte mich sehr stolz darauf, ein Afrikanisch-Amerikaner zu sein.
Amerika hat einen großen Schritt darin getan, Verschiedenheit in der politischen Führung zu akzeptieren. Damit meine ich, für unseren ersten afrikanisch-amerikanischen Präsidenten, Barack Obama, zu stimmen und ihn zu wählen. Barack Obama ist eine Inspiration für mich, weil er bewiesen hat, dass es immer Veränderungen geben kann, so lange man gewillt ist, darauf hin zu arbeiten.
Ich glaube auch, dass er jede Anstrengung unternehmen wird, eine friedliche Lösung zu finden, um den Krieg in Irak zu beenden, die Wirtschaftskrise zu überwinden und jede andere Krise, die sich in Zukunft auf Amerika und seine Menschen auswirken mag.
Barack Obama ist eine Inspiration für alle Amerikaner - Schwarze, Weiße, Asiaten und Lateinamerikaner.

PART LXIX
Grownupism!
1Day, When I Grow Up!

So, as usual, I wuz sittin' an' stinkin' 'bout new beginnin's, probly 'cause it's a new year! Or at least it's sorta new, 'cause it started a month ago when it was still wonderland 'cause skool wuz closed!
So, wut's a few days one way or another?
Sum things are new, like the new president of the USA an' sum things are ol', like the dragon-teecher an' alla her co-dragons in our dungeon skool!
The dragons are ol' stuff with edukation thru punishment, long borin' hours, early mornin' git ups in the cold weather an' lottsa homework!
With papers extendin' from here to the moon!
Like always!
On the other hand, all I read an' hear 'bout in skool is the new president takin' over from ol' Stetson Hat, the king messerupeer of all times!
Peeple kept tryin' to wish this guy away, but he jes wouldn't go, he wouldn't go for a long 8 years an' lottsa more messin' up!
Sum peeple sey, he did a little good stuff, but on the other hand...?
Wow, whatta witch doktor!
My perents an' granma are reel excited 'bout President Obama an' they are reely hopin' he'll make a diffrence for the peeple in the wurl.
I've seen him on T.V. a lot an' I noticed, he talks like my father - reel proper an' sensible like!
He's gotta nice smile an' he's funny an' cool like my papa too!
Actually, a lotta kids in my skool think he is like their papas in a lotta ways!
Boys an' girls!
Even the kids from oversees like Prez Obama a lot, so he reely has a lotta peeple goin' for him.
Kids are sayin', they wanna grow up to be like him?
Do they meen 'cause he's President or 'cause he's such a nice guy?
I dunno!
Even the dragon likes the new President an' that's reely sayin' sumthin' when the dragon likes sumbody, 'cause those liked peeple are far an' in between!
So with the dragon's recommendation, he is reely off to a good start an' is probably sure to be successful!
Plus, granma is also in his corner, big time.
Man, when I grow up, I wonder if all the peeple are reely gonna be on my side too?
Or is ev'rything already used up by the President an' I'll have to find sum new peeple to adore me too!?
Like my papa sez life is always a challenge, so I guess this'll be sum of the challengin' stuff, I'm gonna have to face one day.
Sooner or later!
Well, it's gittin' late, so I'm gonna sleep an' save all that challengin' stuff for later.
Much later!
G'nite
I luv you
G'nite.

PART LXIX
Erwachsensein!
Eines Tages, wenn ich erwachsen werde!

Also, wie üblich war ich am Sitz'n und Stink'n üba Neuanfänge, wahrscheinlich weil das Jahr neu is'!
Oder wenigstens is' es auf 'ne Art neu, weil es 'nen Monat zuvor anfing, als alles wie im Wunderland war, weil die Schule dicht war!
Also, was sind schon 'n paar Tage, hin oder her?
'N paar Dinge sind neu, wie der neue Präsident der USA, und 'n paar Sachen sind alt, wie die Drachenlehrerin und ihre ganzen Ko-Drachen in uns'rer Kerkerschule!
Die Drachen sind alter Kram mit Bildung durch Strafe, lange langweilige Stunden, frühes Aufsteh'n, wenn's kalt is', und 'ne Menge Hausaufgaben!
Mit Aufsätzen von hier bis zum Mond!
Wie imma!
And'rerseits is' alles, was ich les und hör inna Schule üba den neuen Präsidenten, der olle Texashuts Amt übanomm'n hat, dem Schlamasselkönig aller Zeiten!
Die Leute vasucht'n, sich ihn imma wieder wegzuwünsch'n, aber er ging einfach nich', er ging 8 lange Jahre nich weg und baute noch mehr Mist!
Manche Menschen sag'n, er hätte ein bißchen was Gutes getan, aber sonst...?
Wow, was'n Hexendoktor!
Meine Eltern und Oma sind echt begeistert von Präsident Obama und sie hoff'n wirklich, dass er für die Menschen in der Welt etwas ändern wird.
Ich hab ihn ganz oft im Fernsehen geseh'n und gemerkt, dass er wie mein Vater spricht - echt korrekt und vanünftig!
Er hat ein schönes Lächeln und er is' lustig und lässig, wie mein Papa auch is'!
Eigentlich denk'n viele Kinder in meiner Schule, dass er ziemlich viel wie ihre Papas is'!
Jungs und Mädchen!
Sogar die Kinder aus Übersee mög'n Presi Obama sehr, also hat er echt 'ne Menge Leute hinter sich.
Kinder sagen, wenn sie groß sind, woll'n sie so wie er sein?
Mein' die, weil er Präsident is', oder weil er so'n netter Typ is'?
Keine Ahnung!
Sogar der Drachen mag den neuen Präsidenten, und das heiß' echt was, wenn der Drachen wen mag, weil die Leute, die sie mag, kannste echt such'n!
Also, mit der Befürwortung vom Drachen macht er echt 'n guten Anfang und is' wahrscheinlich bestimmt erfolgreich!
Und, Oma is' auch auf seiner Seite, hundert pro.
Mann, ich frag mich, wenn ich ma' groß bin, ob die ganzen Leute wirklich auch ma' auf meiner Seite sind?
Oder hat das alles der neue Präsident aufgebraucht und ich muss 'n paar neue Leute finden, die auch mich bewundern!?
Wie mein Papa sagt, das Leben is' imma 'ne Herausforderung, also denk' ich ma', das is' so'n Herausforderungszeugs, was ich eines Tages hab'n werd.
Früher oder später!
Na ja, es wird spät, also werd ich ma' schlaf'n und mir den Herausforderungskram für später aufheb'n.
Viel später!
'Nacht
Hab euch lieb

The festival screens cinema from the African Diaspora and other films from varied intercultural backgrounds or perspectives.

Black International Cinema Berlin originated from the Black Cultural Festival, which was produced and directed by Fountainhead® Tanz Theatre in 1986 for the first time in Europe, a 3-week event in Berlin, which presented the contributions of Black people to world culture through film, theater, dance, music, workshops and seminars, and was an homage to the legendary tap dancer, Carnell Lyons.
The venues were the Theatermanufaktur am Halleschen Ufer from March 3-16, music – dance – theatre; Hochschule der Künste Berlin on March 11, symposium; Kino Arsenal from March 17-23, film.
Organization and Artistic Direction: Prof. Gayle McKinney Griffith (USA/Berlin), Prof. Donald Muldrow Griffith (USA/Berlin), Donald Muldrow McKinney Griffith II (USA/Berlin), Dr. Ntongela Masilela (South Africa);
in cooperation with: Prof. Dr. Abdul Alkalimat (USA), Uazuvara Ewald Katjivena (Namibia), Getinet Belay (Ethiopia), Joliba Africa Center; Organization: Erika Gregor (Arsenal Cinema, Germany); Organization Assistance: Annette Koschmieder (Germany)

Additionally, Fountainhead® produces and directs since the founding in 1995, the weekly intercultural television magazine program THE COLLEGIUM – Forum & Television Program Berlin, broadcast Thursdays from 9-10 a.m. and Saturdays from 10-11 a.m. at Alex - Open Channel Berlin, and furthermore televised in Magdeburg, Wolfsburg, Dessau and additional cities.
