A movement born out of the desire to employ the over 9000+ unemployed black men in the City of Wilmington.
The movement is based on three key areas:
1. The solution to the crime problem is not more cops. It is jobs!
2. The solution to better academic performance of inner city kids is not new schools or different teachers, it is a safe nurturing home so our kids can do their homework and get parental encouragement. Jobs bring the father back into the home and create that atmosphere.
3. The solution to balancing the city’s budget is to get people off of welfare and onto the tax-paying rolls. Jobs do that.

The O’Jays are touring history, a connection to an era and a sound that formed the soundtrack for the lives of several generations. The O’Jays are still hitting the road with the same electrifying energy they’ve had for over 50 years. Walter Williams and Eddie Levert first met when they were the ages of 6 and 7 respectively. As teenagers in Canton, Ohio, they formed a band originally consisting of Eddie Levert, Walter Williams, William Powell, Bobby Massey and Bill Isles. In 1963, the band took the name “”The O’Jays”” in tribute to Cleveland radio disc jockey Eddie O’Jay. Several members have changed, but the core, original lead singers Eddie Levert and Walter Williams, continue to front the group.
The O’Jays scored the first No. 1 and million-seller with “Backstabbers” and subsequently, they succeeded with various chart-topping pop and R&B singles including “Love Train,” “Put Your Hands Together,” “For The Love of Money,” “I Love Music,” “Darlin’ Darlin’ Baby (Sweet, Tender, Love),” “Livin’ For The Weekend” and “Use Ta Be My Girl.” This success propelled The O’Jays to be the first black vocal group to perform in arenas throughout America during the ’70s and ’80s.
The O’Jays were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2005. They were inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 2005 and honored with BET’s Life Time Achievement Award in 2009. In 2013, they were inducted into The Official R&B Music Hall of Fame. Throughout their career The O’Jays have achieved 10 Gold albums, 9 Platinum albums and 10 No. 1 hits. Eddie Levert Sr., Walter Williams Sr. and Eric Nolan Grant, who joined the group in 1995, continue to thrill fans today.

Out of the Ashes is dramatic expression of the real life journey of father and son who struggled while building a relationship after 14 years of separation. In 1994 Coley Harris went to prison to serve a 16 year sentence and he left behind his 2 year old son Ahmarr Melton. Father and son had to navigate their respective worlds in hopes of reuniting one day and filling the void in their respective lives. Coley struggled to find his identity as a responsible man in a world of steel and stone, as Ahmarr faced an unrelenting world without the guidance of his father. Out of the Ashes captures this intimate journey in a unique blend of dramatic and poetic harmony. This experience is unlike any that you will ever witness, for it is a continuation of a lifelong healing process that this father and son have embarked upon.
