(BLACKPRWIRE)( March 31, 2009) NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- The April/May 2009 issue of UPTOWN Magazine (on newsstands April 7th) features The Triple Threat, a cover story about Academy Award winner Jamie Foxx and what drives his ongoing success. Uptown has created three unique covers featuring Foxx as an Actor, Musician and Comedian.
Jamie Foxx is a powerful entertainer who doesn’t get all the credit he deserves as a musician, comedian and actor. Not since Sammy Davis, Jr. has there been a force that can flourish in all three mediums, said Brett Wright, UPTOWN’s Co-Founder and Chief Creative Officer. His selection of film work and musical gifts are sure to leave a mark on Hollywood and entertainment.
Also featured is Black Camelot by Lawrence Otis Graham, a look at the Who’s Who of African American policy makers in the Obama White House including Valerie Jarrett, John Rogers and Social Secretary Desiree Glapion Rogers. Doing the Derby offers an in-depth look at the long history of African Americans and the Kentucky Derby, still a relevant racing event.
