The recent WBLS & Cafe Mocha Brunch at the Shabazz Center in Washington Heights was quite an event. Honoring “women trailblazers” from all walks of life and hosted by MC Lyte, Angelique and Loni Love of the Cafe Mocha Radio Show, the brunch brought out the elite of African American radio. Honorees included Debi Jackson, Vy Higgensen and McDonald’s Marty Gillis. There was also a performance by soul singer Noel Gourdin (below). Photographs by KEN THE PHOTOGRAPHER.
