YOUR VOICE

I received the magazine. First let me say I am proud of you! I know it is no easy feat to helm a magazine in this economy so kudos to you. The magazine is very well done I found it thought provoking and informative on many levels. Looking forward to working with you guys!!! Marvet Britto New York, NY

You inspire me to move back into my love of publishing. I published Bahiyah Woman magazine several years ago. I love that world! Blessings.

My mother received the printed copy of Prominence Magazine about a week ago. Her response about the article on me, "Baby, I'm so proud of you. To see your name in those big letters in the fancy magazine with famous people makes me proud to call you my son." Thanks Prominence Magazine. Tony Clomax New York, NY

All I can say is wow! It was beautifully and professionally done. If I had not gotten to know you on twitter and had read your magazine I would've sworn it was off the magazine rack! This is an amazing work in progress that is well written and organized. Prominence will gain attention!

I received my copy yesterday and when I pulled it out of the envelope I was like this looks great! Even with the photo shop and the paper cut that was used, it’s very distinctive and classy. If I were a secret shopper you’re magazine would receive a 10! Gale Charlotte, NC

EDITOR’S LETTER talent to leave the comforts of his home and family in Chicago to move to Los Angeles to pursue what he is passionate about, led him to star in one of this year’s most talked about blockbusters, Battle LA. Then there is Cassandra Harris, a woman inspired by the simple pleasures in life, such as peace and relaxation, set out to turn her passion into profit by creating Black Diamond Sanctuary and showing other women how to live tranquil lives. Ariana Proehl, the woman on the mission of changing the face of media and building an Oprah-esque empire is forging her own path and inspiring young girls along the way. We have interior design team, Anishka Clarke and Niya Bascom, who are inspired by the design of life and bringing their client’s vision into reality.

Using Inspiration

I

like to think that we are all here to help and serve each other in some capacity. No matter how big or small that service is, it all starts with being inspired to do something or inspired into action. That inspiration can come from the simplest of things like a smile, a conversation or by seeing someone we admire fulfill their destiny. It does not take much to ignite inspiration. If we just open our eyes and look around we can become inspired a million times in one day.

Every story of success here was created by the individual’s desire of wanting something and going after it with an unwavering faith and determination. Those key elements were the beginning of a shift in their lives. A shift that encompasses all that they could ever want and be in this lifetime. Taking the words such as can’t, afraid and impossible out of their vocabulary released the chains that they would otherwise be bound, if they did not find the courage and inspiration to make their dreams come true. My hope as you read our summer issue is that you find inspiration. That you take hold of the gifts and talents that God has blessed each of you with and use them to create the life of your dreams. For in the end, the life that you live can very well become an inspiration to someone else. Stay inspired and empowered!

Within the pages of this issue are unique and creative individuals who found their inspiration and used that to not only fulfill their desires in life, but inspire others in the process. Cory Hardrict, an Glenys Colclough Founder & Editorial Director actor who believed enough in himself and his

Prominently Known

Dr. Cornel West Using His Voice as Ammunition Distinguished, influential and admired are just a few words to describe Dr. Cornel West. Recognized as one of America’s most prominent intellectuals, he has become a pop culture icon that has built a legacy surrounding his outspoken and tell it like it is personality. The Princeton University Professor, author, actor and radio host is known for his political insight and contribution to the post civil rights movement. Focusing his work on the role of race, gender and class, West has singlehandedly opened the minds of thousands to see the issues we face in American society from a different perspective. As co-host of the hour long, weekly radio show, Smiley and West which has the tag line “Thought-Provoking, Intelligent and Stimulating Conversations,” West and Tavis Smiley share a platform where they share dialogue on various topics from news, politics, entertainment and pop culture.

Exploring all opportunities

The Amalfi Coast - southern Italy

NAPLES

Undiscovered Beauty By Star Davis

Naples, Italy has the perfect combination of opposites. Off the beaten path and about three hours south of Rome, Naples is a bustling city situated amongst grassy hills and azure blue waters. The international population flocks here to experience the good food, trendy spots, and the very friendly local people. With such a wide choice of things to do and places to see, Naples is a wonderful destination for everyone wanting to experience the hospitality and charm of southern Europe. Pompeii and Ercolano are nearby historic sites that invite tourists to experience the feeling of living in 79 A.D. Even within the city proper, there are bits of ancient ruins to remind us of the grand and influential history of Naples. For those who prefer being enchanted by scenic beauty, there are the easily accessible isles of Capri and Ischia. Both of these islands offer fun eateries with great tasting local fare. And both offer sunkissed, rocky beaches. Capri is the more travelled of the two. There is also the famous drive down the Amalfi Coast. Visitors can ride along the steep cliffs that look down onto the Tyrrhenian Sea. Taking the local bus is preferable to driving on any day. The views are not to be missed! The stops along the way offer small seaside towns with amazing photo opportunities. If you are considering visiting southern Europe, Naples Italy offers a fun urban vacation with lots of enjoyable local getaways. There is no end to the adventures a visitor can experience!
