After meeting with interfaith group, Allentown mayor decides to nominate Gregory Edwards for NIZ board after all


By ANDREW WAGAMAN

THE MORNING CALL | FEB 25, 2020 | 7:07 PM

Edwards will almost certainly not be joining the Allentown Neighborhood Improvement Zone Development Authority anytime soon. Browne, Schweyer and O’Connell each are in charge of making appointments to three seats on the ANIZDA board, and thanks to a bylaw change last month, each has the power to veto another’s pick. In other words, all three need to agree on every nominee before Allentown City Council votes on appointment.

Schweyer said Tuesday he still planned to reject Edwards’ nomination.
“Nothing over the last couple of months makes me think this is the right appointment,” Schweyer said. “I’m hoping we can move past this drama and identify someone who’s willing to serve and understands how important the NIZ is to the redevelopment of downtown.”
Browne said he’s never spoken to Edwards but doesn’t think he would be an appropriate member “based on recent activities.”
“His intentions would not be in line with the legal purpose for which the program was established: to maximize investment in the zone,” Browne said. “I do not believe he would advance that legal purpose, and members of the ANIZDA board don’t have the legal discretion to deviate.” Read full article here

The Life of Gwendolyn Brooks, Saturday Feb. 22, 7:00pm in Easton @ the Williams Center for the Arts Lafayette College


Manual Cinema / No Blue Memories: 
The Life of Gwendolyn Brooks
Williams Center for the Arts


Manual Cinema creates theatrical wonderment using simple technologies: with vintage overhead projectors, paper puppetry, actors, live-feed cameras, multichannel sound, and an onstage musical ensemble, the experience is immersive, cinematic, and magical. No Blue Memories: The Life of Gwendolyn Brooks illustrates the story of a remarkable figure in American literary history, her beloved Chicago, and how she navigated identity, craft, and politics. A poet laureate and the first African American to win the Pulitzer Prize, Gwendolyn Brooks inspired generations of artists and children. Only Manual Cinema could capture this literary legend in such poetic fashion.

This performance is specially scheduled with families in mind and suitable for children 8 and older.
