Makeda Smith Celebrating 20 Yrs of Public Relations

Posted by TSUE on July 31, 2008

20 YEARS AND STILL PUSHIN’ FORWARD
JAZZMYNE PUBLIC RELATIONS
CELEBRATES THE HISTORY

 
Makeda Smith 

            Los Angeles, CA – Hundreds of clients have benefited from the magic touch of Jazzmyne Public Relations in the past two decades.  A-list celebrities, athletes, authors, filmmakers, music producers, rappers, special events and businesses alike have received not only expert publicity service, management and consulting but a caring ear and kind heart from agency head, Makeda Smith.  Now celebrating 20 years in business, Makeda is still proudly and diligently pushing forward.
 
            Makeda’s personalized approach to the vast and hectic world of entertainment public relations has proven not only successful but also solid. A home-based operation, Jazzmyne has consistently boasted a client base that competes with the majors.  Past celebrity accounts have included Kevin Eubanks, Jamie Foxx, Nick Van Excel, Mo’Nique, Dorien Wilson, and J. Anthony Brown to name a few. 
 
            “I remember when I launched my agency.  The naysayers informed me that a home based business would never be perceived as legitimate.  Well not only have I been home based for the past 20 years, but now, home based operations are the current trend.  They also told me I would not survive serving a Black clientele and urban base.  Today I’m perceived as an expert in the urban arena.” 
 
               It was 1988 when Gwendolyn “Makeda” Smith resigned her position as Associate Director of West Coast Publicity at Hervey & Company, a public relations firm headed by industry veteran, Ramon Hervey. With no savings or financial backing, it was a single press release that launched her firm, Jazzmyne Public Relations, named for her oldest daughter.
 
            “My biggest surprise has been the emails and phone calls I’ve been blessed to receive throughout the years from the women I have inspired.  As a Black, single mother of two, I started out as a welfare mom.  My motivation and success has unwittingly inspired so many women, and that just truly overwhelms me sometimes.  You never know who is watching, whose heart you are touching.  Always carry yourself like God/Goddess is watching, and the rest will eventually fall into place,” she advises.

ICE-T PRODUCING DOCUMENTARY ON HIS NAMESAKE “ICEBERG SLIM”

Posted by TSUE on May 7, 2008

ICE-T PRODUCING DOCUMENTARY ON HIS NAMESAKE “ICEBERG SLIM”
PRINCIPAL PHOTOGRAPHY BEGINS


LOS ANGELES, CA (May 7th, 2008)
– Principal photography has begun on the documentary about the legendary pimp and writer, Iceberg Slim. The documentary, which is being produced by Ice T, Jorge Hinojosa, and David Naylor, will explore the fascinating and turbulent life of Iceberg Slim.

“Iceberg Slim has been one of the most influential people in Black culture. Few people know the story behind the man and it’s time that story is told. That’s why I am making this documentary.” – Ice-T

 

Iceberg Slim (1918-1992) was the first black author to write about the dynamics of inner-city street life. Drawing on his 35+ year involvement in pimping and crime, Iceberg Slim fascinated his audiences with gritty tales of pimps, hookers, johns and drug dealers.

Born in Chicago near the end of World War I, Iceberg started pimping at the early age of 18 and was extremely successful but not immune to the perils of street life. Drug addiction, multiple run-in’s with the law, and 7 years of incarceration for various offenses were par for the course.

At the age of 55, Iceberg gave up his illicit lifestyle and moved to California to reconcile with his ailing mother. It was then that he began documenting his first-hand knowledge of living as a pimp and hustler through a series of groundbreaking books.
