“We’re Just Talking” Writer / Director Cedric Perry is On the Move

My Name is… Cedric Perry

The reason you are reading about me is… I’m reintroducing the art of storytelling (Hah, Slick Rick…get it? *Looks away*) Growing up in the suburbs, my youth included a lot of family gathering, black comedians, timeless music, and sports. So now I’m fusing those elements together to create the shows that make you laugh AND reflect; the happy medium between Roland Martin and Real Housewives.

People on the Move – Purple Stuff TV’s Brandon Broussard


My Name is… Brandon Broussard

The reason you are reading about me is… because I created the next great “zeitgeist-Monday-morning-water-cooler-skuttle butt-did you see that sh$%!” sketch show. In my mind, there was SNL then In Living Color then The Chappelle show. Purple Stuff TV is an -edgy, at times raunchy, take no prisoners- sketch show that picks up where Chappelle Show left off. There has been a clear void in sketch shows on TV. We all remember the impact that In Living Color and Chappelle had on our lives. Purple Stuff TV will have that same kind of impact.

Stephanie Humphrey is On the Move

My Name is… Stephanie Humphrey

The reason you are reading about me is… I’ve done what very few people get the chance or have the courage to do – left my “good” job to blaze a new path in line with my true passions.

Nava Coppin Wants to See You in Her Office

My Name is… Nava Coppin.

I am a “no nonsense”, “let’s get it done” type person but at the same time very fun, loving, and compassionate. I’m sure if you would ask my students and colleagues to describe me, they would say the exact thing. I love being me and I love others being who they are.

You are reading about me because… I recently became an assistant principal at River Road Middle School after teaching there for seven years. What makes this promotion most interesting is that I initially didn’t apply for the job. I‘d obtained my administrator’s degree almost two years ago but in my mind, I was going to wait until my children got older before I pursued the change. Even more interesting than that, I would converse with my colleagues on who they thought would be the best fit. Little did I know, they were thinking, ME, Mrs. Coppin! Thereafter, my colleagues would email, text, or call to encourage me to apply. After so many calls, I decided to apply. Long story short; had interview, took administrator’s test, waited a week and the superintendent called and asked, “Mrs. Coppin, are you ready to come to work?” I was SPEECHLESS! Oh, and I accepted the position.
