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.

The twenty-six-year-old chef joins us this week to share his experiences living in our fair city.

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.
