Today is Hazel McCallion’s 100th birthday! We were fortunate enough to have the opportunity to sit down with her a few weeks ago to talk about her to talk about her remarkable life. While most of us are familiar with the broad outlines of her career, the story of how she got there from very modest beginnings is not. In this episode are some of our very long, very long socially distanced talk in Zoomer Hall.
Next week we’ll have part two, talking about Hazel’s remarkable career. And in the meantime, you can watch the TV version tomorrow Monday Feb. 15 on The Zoomer at 10 PM on our sister station VisionTV
Amanda Gorman, America’s National Youth Poet laureate, made headlines reciting a poem at the recent Presidential Inauguration. The performance catapulted her to international fame and landed her on the cover of Time Magazine. The gown she chose for that prestigious picture is by Canadian fashion label Greta Constantine, designed by Stephen Wong and Kirk Pickersgill. Libby Znaimer reached Kirk in his studio.
