DENTON, Texas, September 21, 2023 (Newswire.com)
Quakertown, USA, a dramatic, two-part documentary series chronicling the forced removal and relocation of a thriving community of more than 400 residents in Denton, Texas, will begin production this fall, the Denton Black Film Festival Institute and Southroad Pictures announced today.
The jointly produced series, against the backdrop of early 20th century Texas, will tell the story of Quakertown representing a multi-generational tragedy impacting the families who lost their homes, their land, and their livelihoods, but the human element leans in toward stories of recovery and resiliency from these stunning acts of indifference and cruelty.
The Denton Black Film Festival Institute received $250,000 from the city of Denton toward the production of this documentary series. A GoFundMe campaign has been launched to raise the additional funds needed to produce the series.
“We believe that the Quakertown story can become a lighthouse of illumination for the entire country,” said Linda Eaddy, film programming director, Denton Black Film Festival.
Filming of the series Quakertown, USA will begin this winter for an anticipated release in late 2024. The series will be created by veteran filmmakers King Hollis and Lindell Singleton, the team who brought the acclaimed historical documentary about the 1936 Texas centennial, “Rising: The Hall of Negro Life,” to PBS earlier this year and their film, “Echoes from the Hill,” slated for release this Fall.
Executive Producer King Hollis said, “I am delighted to work on a series about my hometown, where I spent my summers and where my family resides. It’s a personal story. Lindell and I are pleased to continue our work on these essential historical documentary series.”
About the Denton Black Film Festival Institute
The institute evolved from the Denton Black Film Festival (DBFF) to provide a platform to serve Black creatives of all backgrounds. The activities and events are open to ALL filmmakers, however, because of historical exclusion and limited participation in the film industry, we recognize a special need for support for those of the African and Black Diaspora. The Film Festival is an annual cultural event, featuring the works of seasoned and emerging filmmakers, creatives from around the country and talented college students, musicians, artists and spoken word poets. Held each January, thousands attend the celebration of storytelling in various art forms, which takes place in various venues. The next festival is slated for January 24-28, 2024, in person and extended virtually from January 28 to February 5. Website: https://dentonbff.com/

Biolage Professional is Excited to be Named a Winner in the 2023 Allure “Best of Beauty” Awards for the Strength Recovery Shampoo and Conditioning Cream
NEW YORK, September 21, 2023 (Newswire.com)
Biolage Professional, a worldwide leader in salon haircare, is thrilled to announce that it has been honored with the coveted Allure magazine “Best of Beauty” Award for its innovative Strength Recovery Shampoo and Conditioning Cream.
Allure has been an icon in the beauty industry for over 25 years and bestows this award only to the best-of-the-best products that demonstrate efficacy, excellence and integrity. Products go through months of testing, conducted by seasoned editors who work to determine the quality of the product against the hundreds of others in their respective categories.
After advancing through multiple rounds of intense judging, the Biolage Strength Recovery Shampoo and Conditioning Cream are being recognized as a leading shampoo and conditioner duo in their product category. Infused with 100% vegan squalane (a skincare super-ingredient), the Strength Recovery Shampoo and Conditioning Cream work together to repair hair damage and prevent new damage from occurring.
“We are so excited to be recognized by Allure,” says Senior Vice President, Head of Brand Martha Glenn. “When we launched the Strength Recovery line, we knew we were creating a new approach to hair repair that not only reflected our brand’s heritage in combining the best of nature and science but could restore even the most damaged hair. Knowing that the Allure Best of Beauty Awards is one of the most respected awards programs, we feel so honored to receive such a high accolade.”
Launched in late 2022, the Strength Recovery collection introduced unique damage repair formulas that are rooted in green science and sustainable technologies. Leveraging vegan squalane ethically sourced from olives, these formulas reduce breakage and leave hair softer, smoother and stronger. The Shampoo gently cleanses the hair and scalp while adding softness and smoothness without weight. It was recognized in 2023 by the SELF magazine “Healthy Beauty” Awards as the best shampoo for dry or damaged hair. The Conditioning Cream has a creamy texture that leaves hair stronger after one use with 3x more moisture*. Both products are vegan, cruelty-free, paraben-, mineral oil-, and colorant-free formulas.
The Strength Recovery Shampoo and Conditioning Cream make up part of the Strength Recovery collection, which also includes the Strength Recovery Deep Treatment Mask and the Strength Repairing Spray. The entire collection is available for purchase at Ulta Beauty, Hair.com and on Amazon.

Soon-to-be-Released Debut Music Album Already Topping Amazon Music’s Jazz Charts
LOS ANGELES, September 20, 2023 (Newswire.com)
A response to longtime fan requests, Raymond Arroyo Christmas Merry & Bright charms listeners with Arroyo’s renaissance sensibilities. Warm vocals and a touch of humor refresh and cast new light on a collection of Christmas standards we’ve all taken for granted.
Watch the EPK HERE.
Raymond Arroyo has entertained and informed audiences in one way or another his whole life, as a contributor for Fox and CNN, with his New York Times bestselling books and his frequent appearances on The Today Show, Fox News, Good Morning America, CNN Headline News, Access Hollywood, Erin Burnett Outfront, and The Ingraham Angle, and through beloved shows on EWTN (commonly known as “the world’s largest faith media network”). Now, audiences will be treated to his debut recording Christmas Merry & Bright in which his deeply rooted musical background takes center stage; having grown up singing in his native New Orleans, then graduating from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, followed by theater stints in London.
On “Merry & Bright,” Arroyo is backed by jazz supergroup The NOLA Players. Christmas Merry & Bright showcases Kevin Kaska’s (The Greatest Showman, Jungle Book) beautiful, Big Band new arrangements of the timeless “I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day,” a hard-driving “Joy to the World,” and a never-before-heard orchestration of medley “The First Noel/We Magi of Orient Are.” Recorded at the historic Le Petite Theatre by multi-Grammy award-winning producer Brad Michel, the album captures unexplored emotions of the season with an all-new rendition of the beloved “Feliz Navidad” — complete with a moving duet with Grammy winner José Feliciano. Soon to be a Christmas favorite, Christmas Merry & Bright will forever change the way listeners will experience these cherished songs. Arroyo will be touring in select markets this coming November and December in support of Raymond Arroyo Christmas Merry & Bright, bringing a uniting, memory-making, wonder-awakening experience to prepare for the yuletide season.
