Video from Farai Chideya's "Kiss The Sky" book party

Some video shot by Baratunde Thurston of Jack & Jill Politics last night at Farai's party.  The affair was held in Harlem at the Harlem Arts Salon and was graciously hosted by Margaret and Quincy Troupe.  In addition to Bridgett and I, other folks in the house included friends such as George Alexander, Keli Goff, Farai's editor Malaika Adero, Columbia's Farah Griffin, Nicole Moore, Trey Ellis, and Tara Roberts.  No, not an exhaustive list (the place was packed!), but a sampling of the great folks in the room to celebrate Farai's release.
