NEW YORK, New York, Friday, Aug. 5, 2022: “The Chambers – In God We Trust” television series is thrilled to announce that it’s taken home more than 10+ awards to date – including Best TV Pilot and Best TV Series.

Kimble’s Executive assistant Marsha makes a statement while having dinner on a date with Dan, a gentleman Marsha has seen around the court. Still, she is unaware that he is a reporter for the Daily Justice Newspaper. Marsha makes a statement that puts herself and the Judge at the center of controversy in an already challenging political environment. The plot unfolds from there.

Al Sharpton’s 2019 NAN Triumph Awards Was An Experience!

Story By: Sura Khan

On October 21, 2019, the world-famous Apollo Theater opened its doors to the National Action Network 2019 Triumph Awards celebrating Rev. Al Sharpton’s 65th birthday and over 50 years of activism. The program was host by TV/News Anchor from NY1 Cheryl Wills and The Rev. Al Sharpton. The evening honorees were Patrisse Cullors – Co. founder of “Black Lives Matter”, Alicia Garza- Co. Founder of “Black Lives Matter”, Van Jones- News Commentator & Author, Ivy McGregor – CEO of IVY Inc. & Social Responsibility/Beygood, Dominque Morisseau- Play Wright & Director, Naturi Naughton –Actor & Singer “Power TV Series” and Isiah Thomas- NBA Hall of Fame. It was an honor to be in the company of such great contributors to the African American community and the world.

Al Sharpton 65th Birthday

The evening started with some acknowledgments and a wonderful and moving performance by the “Grace Baptist Church Choir” that set the tone for the rest of the evenings’ celebration. Their performance was moving and had the audience engaged in the spirit. Next up was the singing of a rendition of the Stevie Wonder hit song “Happy Birthday” to Rev. Sharpton by the entire auditorium. A cake with burning candles was rolled out on to the stage followed by Al Sharpton, supporters, and loved ones.

                    Isiah Thomas /Sura Khan    Al Sharpton awards Birthday 65yh

The evening events were more than an award show and birthday celebration; it was indeed an experience. A well-organized event that hardily kept audience members in their seats.  A video collage played on a giant screen on stage recapturing the life and times of Al Sharpton. It was entertaining and educational for onlookers. I learned a great deal about Rev. Sharpton and the NAN that evening. President Obama appeared on the screen wishing the Reverend a happy birthday. The former President also spoke very highly of Sharpton and his great accomplishments and contributions, with some little joke that kept the audience laughing. Video footage and photos appeared on the screen giving visual of a 7-year-old Al preaching in the church too the 1980’s heavyset Al with his famous processed hairstyle. The audience loved it.

Dr. W. Franklyn Richardson- Chairman of the board, National Action Network was also in attendance presenting the Chairman’s Award to NBA Hall of Famer Isiah Thomas. Richardson also appeared in the video presentation speaking highly of the NAN and Sharpton. Sharpton refused to allow the awards evening to be dampened with talks of President Donald Trump or currents events. It was his night and happiness was the order of the day.  Sharpton also had at his side his two lovely daughters, grandson, and son-in-law among others. He also sang the praises of one of the central park 5 who is now employed by NAN and working behind the scene to support the work of NAN. The audience applauded the young man as he thanked everyone and held his fist high in the air (Victory).

Ain't Too Proud The Musical

Honoree Dominique Morisseau gave an inspiring speech and brought along with her the cast members from her Tony-Winning Musical show now on Broadway at the Imperial Theater “Ain’t Too Proud: The Life and Times of the Temptations. The 5 siging actor’s-dancers hit the stage with a rendition of some of the Temptations’ greatest hits including “Ain’t Too Proud to Beg” among many others. The audience was dancing in their seats to the memorable sounds of Motown.

A spectacular performance by the “Greater Allen AME Cathedral Ensemble moves the audience even more with their powerful voices. Honoree Van Jones –Attorney and Organizer sang the praises of Sharpton, calling him his mentor. Jones was almost moved to tears recapping his journey. Jones also brought with him two young gentlemen, former prisoners whom Jones and his organization lead the way to their freedom. Thousands of others also benefit from his efforts as he led the charge on passing the FIRST STEP ACT. a bipartisan Federal bill that the NY Times calls the most substantial breakthrough in criminal justice in a generation.

After all the wonderful award presentations and speeches by all the honorees, the evening came to a close as Gospel recording artist Le’Andria Johnson BET (Sunday’s Best) took to the stage singing her inspirational music from her album “Bigger Than Me”. Johnson leads the Apollo audience straight to church as she filled the room with a spirit emerging from deep within her soul. The Reverend Al Sharpton then lead the audience in prayer as the program came to a close.

In conclusion, the evening was inspiring, entertaining and educational on many levels. I thank Al Sharpton, the National Action Network and its board of directors and members for all the great work they’ve done over the years. It was indeed an eye-opener for me. Congratulations to all the honorees for the great work each of them does to better our community and the world over. Happy birthday Brother Al Sharpton and may you be blessed to continue on the front line for social justice and reform for all.

Readers and viewers alike may find that this great writer producer-director was able to use both purpose and spirituality in order to give a sense of the truth of humanity in the transformation of a fictitious story that blends reality. Dorian Taylor 

A Supremes Reunion Story, New York, NY (November 4, 2017) –Author and filmmaker Sura Khan re-releases his historic book “In the Name of Love”, (originally written in 2009) an inspirational book illustrating the story behind the making of a cinematic message in a bottle to the former Motown’s greatest female group of all time, The Supremes Diana Ross, Mary Wilson and Cindy Birdsong. The Love Letter books to the Supremes

Details of the journey inscribed are magical, joyful, and sometimes painful not only for the author/filmmaker but also for all those who traveled with him to send this message. In the Name of Love is where Sura Khan shares the events in his childhood, connecting himself to the Supremes, the undertaking, and getting the film to the superstars through an ingenious process. It gives the readers a view from the inside of one of the most non-talked about events in the entertainment industry. The book is one of the best options as an uplifting, inspirational, and educational tool for filmmakers, actors,        writers and all of those seeking to jump out of the box and make a huge difference.

IN THE NAME OF LOVE  is a first-hand account of one man’s journey to inspire Diana Ross, Mary Wilson and Cindy Birdsong formally Diana Ross & the Supremes, to heed the call of fans all over the world and give a reunion performance another chance.

Throughout his life, Sura Khan has always felt a connection to the Supremes and never really understood why and then the pieces started coming together. Sura Khan took on the challenge to do what most would have liked to had done when he committed to write and produce a cinematic letter to Ross, Wilson, and Birdsong of the legendary Motown group. His hopes were to inspire the ladies back to the forefront, one more time. In his book “In the Name of Love” Sura Khan details the story behind the noble effort to inspire peace unity and reconciliation.

Th present day

Almost 12 years have now passed and a reunion has never taken place. “I use to question myself sometimes,” says Sura Khan, “Did I do the right thing I would ask myself”. Twelve years later and Sura Khan has no regrets. The doors have opened for many involved in the project and have taken their careers to new heights. “I’m happy to be somewhat responsible for that,” says Sura Khan. “Sometimes things are not what they appear to be and there’s always a story behind the story that can either push us forward or hold us back. Ms. Ross, Ms. Wilson and Ms. Birdsong are not exempt from that.” “We all did our best and we did it In the name of Love.      

About the Author

Sura Khan, a versatile author, filmmaker, and director is also a motivational speaker in the field of entertainment and spirituality. This year (2017) he produced several television shows including a talk Variety show “Set Life Cali” with actor/singer Keith Robinson of Saints & Sinners and the film Dreamgirls. Actor Mac John Jefferies of Power Series and as a child actor playing Isaiah alongside Halley Berry in the film Losing Isaiah was also featured on the program. Sura Khan also scripted the historical and much-anticipated life story of Brooklyn’s notorious drug lord, Calvin Bacote aka Calvin Klein. The series now in development is titled The Brooklyn Don. The series tells stories about the real-life happenings between Klein and many of his associates that includes hip-hop powerhouse Jay Z among many other notables. Sura Khan has written, produces and directed several new television series and currently working on his memoirs in entertainment, slated to be released in 2018.

In the making of In the Name of Love, Sura Khan aims to re-write a history of worlds famous icons grappling with assorted personality conflicts and to hopefully facilitate “peace talks” between the duo/trio while bringing about a concert reunion of three of the earliest surviving members of the group. Now 12 years later (2017) and the ladies are in there 70’s (Age) and still wowing them. “I was delighted to see Diana Ross & Mary Wilson together in support of Berry Gordy’s (Motown Founder) Motown the Musical on Broadway,” says Sura Khan.

Dreams don’t die people just stop dreaming (Mary Wilson) – Sura Khan’s oft-spoken mantra, which is clearly made manifest in his cinematic piece, In the Name of Love.

Excerpt

 “IN THE NAME OF LOVE” ” 
                                             Delivering the Goods”
I had this all planned out well, Diana Mary and Cindy were supposed to all receive the film around the same time but things don’t always go according to plan. The moment the lid came off the pot things start going wrong.

On January 23, 2008, three packages were sent out. One to Diana Ross, Mary Wilson, and Cindy Birdsong. Mary’s was delivered first. After that, about two weeks later Cindy’s was delivered. It was some problem with the delivery for Cindy and it was about to be returned. Then delivery was confirmed. Diana Ross package was returned to me weeks later marked undeliverable at that address. Mary and Cindy had a copy of the film and Diana Ross was about to hear it through the grapevine. This was not looking good at all. Word was spreading fast across America and the United Kingdom regarding the existence of this film titled “In The Name of Love” about a reunion of Diana Ross and the Supremes. Shortly after this I had received an e-mail from Ro’ with an attachment of a message that was posted on Cindy MySpace page allegedly written by Cindy, The part of this message that got me was these words Cindy allegedly posted: “I speak with Diana and Mary from time to time and there has been some talk of a possible forthcoming event involving the three of us”………..

SURA KHAN SCRIPTS HISTORIC BROOKLYN MINI-TV SERIES 

THE BROOKLYN DON – CALVIN KLEIN BACOTE STORY

Sura Khan & Calvin Klein Bacote join forces to bring this mini-television series to life. Enter the world of Brooklyn, through the boundless and in-depth mind of Calvin “Klein” Bacote. Klein is a mythological figure too most and an Iconic figure to others. From the child growing up in the late 60’s and 70’s to the larger than life character throughout the 80’s and 90’s. No stone is unturned! This series will walk you through places you just couldn’t go. Experience this journey through the eyes of a mother, gun of an enforcer and soul of a hustler. Calvin Klein is one of the last men standing.

Calvin Bacote was born in 1966 and raised in Brooklyn, New York by his parents along with his older sister and brother. In the mid 80s Bacote began dealing and distributing the nation’s most dominating drug, crack cocaine. He organized a masterful team thus becoming a powerful drug lord often referred to as Calvin Klein the Brooklyn Don. His name echoed up and down the entire east coast, where the distribution of cocaine was lead under his management. In 1988, Bacote was charged with second-degree murder and five counts of possession of a deadly weapon. Ten months later in 1989, he was acquitted of all charges. Two months after the acquittal Bacote, along with associate Mr. Shawn Carter aka Jay -Z, was charged in a Maryland State case for attempted murder, intent to maim, battery, assault, and possession of a deadly weapon. Both of them faced up to 40 years in prison.

Bacote negotiated with the Plaintiff to take full blame, therefore relieving Carter of all pending charges. After being released on bail, pending a trial date, Bacote was in the works towards financing a recording label for rappers Jaz-O and Biz Markie. One of the first acts to be released from the label was Carter also known as Jay-Z. Unfortunately, The label was never established. Unbeknownst to him, Bacote was under a federal investigation that eventually led to a 25-year sentence. His prior 1989 conviction was overturned and dismissed reducing the 25-year sentence to 15 years, of which he served
Bacote’s notorious past is acknowledged and glorified amongst many creditable artist such as Jay-Z, Akon, and French Montana, all of whom have mentioned him in their music. Upon his release in 2004 he was asked to manage Akon who became an international multi-platinum recording artist under his management.

Bacote helped build the Konvict music label and brand. Throughout his journey in the music industry he created an intricate network of high profile relationships. He has since turned over a new leaf in his life and is focused on giving back. The first step in his journey was in 2004 with The Fatherhood Family Engagement Program in which he rebuilt dilapidated homes in South Carolina. In 2012 shortly after getting married, Bacote was invited to speak at a YPO (Young President’s Organization) event in Las Vegas Nevada, hosted by Wendy Day. On February 25, 2014, He self-published a book based on his life, hoping the unmitigated nature would deter those wishing to follow in his past footsteps. The book titled, “Neighborhoods Under Siege” was #1 on Amazon, and #7 on Kindle during the week of its release. He started a media blitz, accomplishing hi-profile interviews with Vlad TV, MTV News, and Complex.com to name a few, highlighting his newfound passion for effecting change by public speaking.

On January 17, 2015, Bacote spoke at Harvard University’s School of Law in accordance to the effects of police brutality on today’s nation. Bacote represented New York and spoke in regards to the death of Eric Garner. The Mayor and Police Chief of Ferguson, Missouri were also in attendance in regards to the death of Michael Brown. Whether it is detention centers, churches, schools, jails or bookstores, Calvin seeks to spread his message to the world. The new series written by Sura Khan with Calvin Klein Bacote is in development.
