Faces of Kingston: Nardia Bennett

Faces of Kingston: Nardia Bennett

This week we are going to talk to Kingston resident Nardia Bennett, a 31-year-old volunteer for Citizen Action who graciously shared some time afterwards to talk to me. She told stories me about seven instances of things she had experienced within our own city she believed to have racist motivations within the past year alone. I wish I could fit our whole conversation but wanted to share as much as I could.

Donald Shumen was born in 1961 and has been part of Kingston ever since. That’s a lot of expertise on our lovely and lively city. I recently had a great shopping experience at Mike’s Office Furniture at 299 South Wall St. and knew that the friendly co-owner would make a great interview for the latest installment of Faces of Kingston.

This week we are going to meet Ejay Bell, a chill person who is a 28-year-old local comedian with a very sharp wit on stage, not to mention a big heart that holds a lot of love for the community.

Last week, Kingston and Saugerties lost one of our favorite people and an unmistakable influence on so many in the underground Upstate New York hip-hop scene, a poetic soul who never took what he had for granted. I am talking about Bobby Daniels a.k.a. Mr. Bobby Delicious and there are no words good enough to sum up the loss or the blessing of knowing him.

Kingston is a place composed of a wonderful variety of people. It’s nice to focus on being neighborly and learn more about one another — something we all should try to do more often. This week, we talked to 23-year-old Salem Corwin.
