WAG Advancing The Dream Week By Week

WAG Retreat

WAG Retreat

SAN BERNARDINO, CA- Since 1972, the Westside Action Group (WAG) has been advancing the dream week by week. A group of men on the West side of San Bernardino came together in 1972 and formed the Black Father’s organization to work together to advocate for youth in the community.  This event was the forerunner of WAG. WAG is a proactive organization for African Americans in San Bernardino County in general, but its primary focus is within the city of San Bernardino.

As part of WAG’s recognition of the 50th anniversary March on Washington, they sponsored a two-day retreat to develop a unified community action plan. The participants agreed on a set of goals that will be put into action through four committees. The committees are Economics and Community Development, Education, Health and Leadership and Professional Development. Community members or organizations that would like to participate in the ongoing development and implementation of the action plan are invited to attend the weekly meetings held each Monday at 12 p.m. at the Boys & Girls Club of San Bernardino, 1180 W 9th Street, San Bernardino, CA 92411.

What It Do With LUE – This Week Mi$fit

This week’s artist’s review is a true talent. I’m featuring the man himself, Mi$fit. Phillip Quadir Bailey, better known as Mi$fit: The Born Hustler, is making noise in the entertainment game. His single “Where They Do That At” is most definitely a banger, a project put out by Sity Counsil Entertainment. I met Mi$fit through a contact a few months ago. I was told by this individual, “Wait until you hear and see this dude in action”. I must confess, I was not disappointed. Mi$fit came to our studio ready. I asked him to perform in front of the folks that were there, and he did just that with no hesitation.

This past Sunday, I had a chance interview and see him perform in Los Angeles for LaTrina Blackberry’s, 6th Annual Western Conference. Mi$fit is definitely no stranger to the stage or the MIC. He commanded the crowd. I love to watch the reaction of the audience whenever a performer performs. The expression and body language tells it all. The crowd was hyped and well engaged. I give Mi$fit two thumbs up for a great performance.

This entertainer has a little more to him than just music. He has a love for the kids. Mi$fit has created a foundation entitled Misfit for the Kids. Misfit coaches Eastvale Pop Warner, and is involved in community services. He has also created the anthem for Eastvale Pop Warner and will be shooting a video to the anthem within the next month. He has raised more than $500.00 for the Eastvale community and is currently working with the Mayor of Eastvale. He is also the owner of, PAC Entertainment, which stands for, “People And Creativity”, for trouble kids to help channel their energy into a positive manner. For more information on this foundation, please contact Phillip Quadir Bailey at 951-454-0489 or 909-437-9318.

I predict a bright future for this talented artist. For more information on upcoming shows and music, please check out his face book page and Soundcloud under ‘Mi$fit- The Born Hustler’ or you can find him on all Sity Council Entertainment social media sites.

Once again it’s ya girl LUE keeping you informed of the talent in the IE and surrounding cities. Until next week, TTFN!
