Lucille Ball Rachel Wheeler Harrison College MGT 2200 Ms. Ward 12/7/2014 Lucille Ball “Lucy you got some ‘splainin to do,” one of the famous lines from the beloved sitcom I Love Lucy. Each generation seems to be able to enjoy the hair brained tactics of Lucille Ball long after the show and its cast have passed on.

Tragedy struck Lucy when she was very young with the loss of her father when she was only three. Eventually her mother re-married, but Lucy’s family was never the same.
Despite a lifelong struggle with failing vision and the political conspiracy that have defined post-revolutionary Cuba, Alonso returned to her beloved land and founded the Ballet Nacional de Cuba and created the island's first dance school. At the age of eight, when she took her first dance lesson, she recalled to www.spain-alive.com, "I knew that I was going to love it more than anything in my life." That love has pushed her through six decades of dance. Born Alicia Ernestina de la Caridad del Cobre Martinez Hoya on December 21, 1921 (though some sources say it was 1917); Alonso was the youngest of four children. Her father, Antonio Martinez, was an officer in the Cuban army and her mother, Ernestina Hoya, was a homemaker.

Bridge. Superficial is existing or occurring at or on the surface. Mrs. Bridge often times puts on a show for those around her because she is so caught up in appearance and presenting herself as the perfect wife, mother and friend. One hot summer day she chose to go without stockings after being told this was not lady like growing up. Although she was comfortable, upon having unexpected houseguest she cries out while greeting them at the door, “Oh goodness I look like something out of Tobacco Road!”(1054).
These readings and poems are literally inspirational. It does not matter if you’re a lesbian or a queer, if there is love, then there is love. Like there are a few passages and poems I loved. In “La Ofrenda by Cheeríe Moraga” chronicling her love for her childhood friend Tiny, Moraga casually exposes the failure of the heterosexist machos of the Chicano movement to keep their women satisfied, and in doing so undermines the male ego: “Tiny used to say her contribution to La Causa was to keep the girlfriends of the Machos happy while they were out being too revolutionary to screw”.

For example I recently saw the phenomenal film Their Eyes Were Watching God. Halle Berry stars in this version of Zora Neale Hurston's novel, adapted for television and produced by Oprah Winfrey. The story centers on Janie Crawford (Berry), a free-spirited woman who lives her life on her own terms. Refusing to accept her place as a black woman in the 1920s, Janie lives life to its fullest and experiences a journey filled with great joy and unbearable heartache. I enjoyed the casting choices because the actors and scenery joined to convey a part of the movies theme.
But hosting a talk show wasn't all Winfrey had in mind. Although untrained as an actress, she was nominated for an Oscar for her powerful performance as a slave in Steven Spielberg's The Color Purple. (Two decades later Winfrey produced a musical version on Broadway.) She created Harpo productions to house her show and to produce socially relevant films. She also launched a monthly book segment on her show and her selections immediately became best sellers.
“The inexhaustible charm that rose and fell”(120) in Daisy's voice captured everyone she met, and held them close to her heart. She had thought she loved Gatsby with all her heart, but she knew things had to change. After the murder of Myrtle, she had to choose between the man she loved, and the man she would come to love. She had to forget about true love and think about her child's need for her father. Tom said he loved Daisy, but “his sturdy physical egotism no longer nourished his peremptory heart.”(20).
