A Note from the Editor:
The Staccato Beat Magazine highlights mainly those outstanding pioneers and participants in the arts and entertainment industries from the DC Metropolitan area, but also elsewhere, who are doing powerful things through the mediums in which they work. We have had so many great opportunities to interview artists, cover events, and be a part of growing movements in the DMV. This is our first issue of the Staccato Beat Magazine, released for the Fall 2015! Enjoy the interviews, and make sure to show the interviewees love on their various social media outlets, going to their shows, and supporting their ventures! Visit the Wall of Fame to see previous interviewees from the old format. But most of all enjoy the stories and wisdom brought to you by the interviewees who are now a part of the Staccato Beat Family, just like you!
In this edition, we have a fantastic lineup of interviews from comedian Kasaun Wilson, founder of Fighting Cancer with Poetry Christoph Jenkins, founder of KweliTV Deshuna Spencer, as featured on the cover, founder of Shazzy Fitness Kristy McCarley, to our spotlight DC Metro area teacher, DC Charter School teacher Shaun Phillips!
Sit back and be inspired!
