When local NPR host John Lemley asked to go style hunting with me, refusal was not an option. His celebration of music and Atlanta culture, City Café, airs weekdays at noon following Second Cup Concert. If I'm near a radio during those hours, it's tuned to WABE. Lemley and producer Myke Johns met me in Hurt Park by Georgia State University, but jackhammer noises sent us westward to greener pastures in Fairlie-Poplar. En route we talked about the hows, whys and wherefores of street fashion reporting. Soon the GSU class schedule released a tide of students and we spoke with these three standouts. Lend an ear this afternoon to the sounds of blogging in progress on FM 90.1, WABE.

The global statistic is shocking and bears repeating: one woman in three will beaten or raped in her lifetime. To fight back, V-Day founder and playwright Eve Ensler imagined a world-wide movement. Says she, "Dance is dangerous, joyous, sexual, holy, disruptive, contagious, it breaks the rules. It can happen anywhere, anytime, with anyone and everyone, and it's free. Dancing insists we take up space, we go there together in community. Dance joins us and pushes us to go further and that is why it's at the center of ONE BILLION RISING. With infectious music and lyrics from Tena Clark, amazing vocals by a talented group of V-Girls and Debbie Allen’s bold choreography, Break The Chain is the anthem that will call up one billion to rise.” Laura Turner Seydel led the efforts to produce our day, which began with speeches from the capitol steps, and the Chelko Foundation commissioned a statue, One Woman Rising, which overlooks Freedom Parkway from the hill above Moreland Avenue.
