Port Of Harlem contributors Meredith Beal and Tyrone Colbert, and former contributor Omar Bah are making waves at home and abroad. “I am always excited to see people with whom we work with do well,” says POH publisher Wayne Young.

Media entrepreneur Beal will receive The Voice Achievers Award in Banjul August 20. Beal, a Los Angelite and former Director of Marketing for Motown Records, lives in Nairobi and is a senior technology advisor to the African Media Initiative (AMI). AMI is a pan-African organisation seeking to strengthen the continent’s in-his-hands and independent media sector.  As a poet, he most recently penned “Africa Rising, Afrika Yainuka, Afrique Eveillée: English, Ki-Swahili, French” (Text and Video).

Since his release from prison, our “The Other Side - Voices of the Incarcerated” contributor Colbert has released his first post-prison article for Port of Harlem and interviewed by Carolivia Herron on Epic City Radio. One of his upcoming articles will be with anther formerly incarcerated Port of Harlem contributing artist Carlos Walker.

Bah, whom we first meet when he was a writer for The Daily Observer in Banjul is holding steady in his race to represent Rhode Island’s second district.  James R. Langevin (D-RI) is vacating the seat. 

A June poll found Bah with a challenge at wining the Democratic primary and even for the Democratic nominee in this Democratic district. Republican candidate Allan Fung has a six-point lead in a hypothetical match-up with Democrat Seth Magaziner according to a Boston Globe. We hope to have an upcoming podcast with Bah on Port of Harlem Talk Radio.
