** COMMUNITY ALERT ** URGENT: Armed Robbery...

** COMMUNITY ALERT ** URGENT: Armed Robbery at Morgan and Monroe at 11:15am - The Nail Salon on the corner - cops shared that were standing in street - 3 black males in puffy coats 5'8 to 5'10 (two had black puffy coats with brown fur up around collar; and one had black coat with grey shirt) - Perps walked in said don't move - and robbed the nail salon. The cops said there are many crews working our neighborhood. Madison Manor also had the perps at 9am try to pull off the security panel and get in the door to steal packages. WHAT YOU CAN DO: Be Alert. Report Any Suspicious PEOPLE or Activity. People sitting in cars - taking pictures of buildings. The officer said to call 911 and report it specifically as "due to the recent armed robberies (i.e. Morgan and Monroe) in our neighborhood, I want to report XYZ people sitting in car taking pictures; or people standing around taking pictures of buildings". This way, they can follow up on it. Report everything so they can catch these crews. He said they are watching the neighborhood to figure out how to get in and rob people. Side note: In 2 of the last 4 instances I’ve heard about, the perpetrators were actually INSIDE a gated neighborhood property (Block X & Carmichael’s) thank you for the info Jason Chamerlain

Mark your calendar to experience the Whitney ...

Mark your calendar to experience the Whitney M. Young Magnet High School​ theater company's upcoming performances of "The Good Times are Killing Me". This autobiographical comic drama by a noted cartoonist about growing up in an interracial neighborhood in the 1960s is suitable for most ages (no profanity or violence). There will be a total of six performances; two before Thanksgiving (on November 17th and 18th) and four after (on November 30 and December 1 and 2), and all will take place at Whitney Young\'s theater in the Arts Building at 1421 W. Jackson Blvd. Tickets are only $10 at the door.

    The Good Times Are Killing Me
    Young Edna Arkins lives in a neighborhood that is rapidly changing, thanks to white flight from urban Seattle in the late 1960s. As the world changes around her, Edna is exposed to the callous racism of adults-sometimes subtle and other times blatant, but always stinging.
