Charlotte Woman Launches Witness My Life Project to Tell Stories of Black Women

 Witness My Life launches its brand in Charlotte by telling the stories of black women.

The Witness My Life Project is a showcase of women’s stories told through a story prompt t-shirt – which functions like a declaration. The project launches in Charlotte with a photoshoot to feature the women and to mark their journeys.

Participants’ stories along with their photos will be shared throughout social media and the Charlotte region.

Story Shirts include:

Based on a Love Story: Stories of all kinds of love (persons, places or things).

Based on a True Story: Stories of true events that had a direct or indirect effect on you.

Based on a Survivor Story: Stories of pulling through any type of adversity.

Based on a War Story: Stories of battles (real and imagined).

Based on an Immigrant Story: Stories of fitting in and standing out.

Based on a Coming Out Story: Stories of coming to terms with one’s identity.

Based on an Ancestor Story: Stories of ancestry, challenging norms and/or embracing history.

See Me Because I Matter: Stories of feeling invisible (unseen, unheard, not validated).

Witness My Life: Stories of moving beyond labels, shattering stereotypes and systems.

To aid in storytelling, the women will receive instruction from Witness My Life founder and storytelling strategist, Shereese Floyd, who will guide the women through a storytelling framework dubbed the “Harriet Tubman” Moment.

“Has there ever been a greater moment in history to hear black women’s stories? This Project is about sharing women’s stories beyond labels and expectations. I don’t want to live in a world where anyone feels invisible, undervalued, not seen and heard. This Project is about asking the world to be a witness to our lives, but not waiting around for permission,” says Shereese Floyd.

The Witness My Life Project is expected to travel to select cities in North Carolina to engage and tell more women’s stories.

Woman Killed by a Security Guard in Chicago is One of Loveforce International Recording Artists’ Daughters

 A Shooting Death in the Bronzeville area of Chicago involving a security guard in early February left one person, a 55 year old woman, dead. The identity of the woman was not disclosed until recently. The woman was identified as Bobbye Johnson. She was a mother and grandmother. She was also one of the children of Loveforce International’s Recording Artist Bobby Jonz.

The security guard who shot her had an altercation with a man while he was guarding a local liquor store. The man the guard had the altercation with, shot the guard in the leg and ran. The guard went into the liquor store, got a gun from someone in the store, and shot at the fleeing man. One of the gun shots hit Ms. Johnson in the chest. She was taken to a nearby hospital but died a short time later. The guard has since been charged with murder for Johnson’s death.

Bobby Jonz had toured the world and released over 200 Soul and Blues recordings over his seven decade career. He died of COVID in July of 2020. At the time of his death, he was survived by four of his five children. Another daughter died from COVID in December 2020. Bobbye Johnson was the second of Jonze’s four surviving children to die in the last 14 months.

“When COVID was rampant in America, it took both Bobby, and one of his surviving daughters. Since then, the crime rate has risen. It is now rampant in America, and another of Bobby’s surviving children has been taken by it,” said Loveforce International CEO, Mark Thomas. “Our condolences go out to Bobby Jonz entire family and to the victims of crime everywhere,” he continued.
