Dr. ANTENEH ROBA returns this week – continuing our discussion from last week about one of the most important Black History Month events ever – “SOUL FOOD-FOR-THOUGHT – The Real Roots of Liberation” coming to San Francisco’s Herbst Theatre Friday February 12th, a spectacular entertainment and educational happening that has the Bay Area BUZZING!!! We’ll be singing and dancing our way to better community health for African Americans, as we save human babies, wildlife, domesticated animals, and the environment – here and in Africa, at this benefit for the International Fund for Africa at www.ifundafrica.org. This week Dr. ROBA examines the environmental devastation facing Africa – and what we can do about it. Also this week – TAMEARRA DYSON, owner of Oakland’s SOULEY VEGAN restaurant (Broadway at 3rd Street) who will be providing food, along with GOLDEN ERA, GOLDEN LOTUS, HERBIVORE, and LOVING HUT at the GREEN ROOM reception (5:30pm-7:30) prior to the 8pm theatre program. Tickets for an orchestra seat + reception are $40 from www.CityBoxOffice.com. Tickets for show only start at just $10, for world-class musical entertainment from singer LENNY WILLIAMS (Tower of Power) and his 7-piece band, and reggae and world music from MIDNIGHT SUN. It’s celebrity star-power all the way with hosts JOHN SALLEY, former NBA superstar and host of “The Best Damned Sports Show”, and actress TRACI BINGHAM (“Bay Watch”, “The Surreal Life”). Dr. ROBA will speak at the event, as will MILTON MILLS, MD, on improving health for people of color today, and the ancient dietary health secrets of Africa. Enjoy comedy, African dance, an appearance by a champion bodybuilder, a silent auction with incredible African art and artifacts, and so much more at this historic event. Get your tickets now!!! Also this week – the Cancer Project’s 5-worst gourmet burger list, and quick – what if you took the letters from “McDonald’s Restaurants”, shuffled them, and came up with something else, very descriptive of “McDonald’s Restaurants” – what would that be? Listen! Shame on McDonald’s for its latest promotion targeting teens and forcing them to swallow its corporate diet of death.
