The panel will include Charmaine Jefferson, (Executive Director of the African-American Museum), and Psychologist, Marriage and Family Therapist, Dr. Patricia D. Johnson.

Some time ago we initiated a segment titled "Film/TV Composers
Forum" -- where from time to time we will invite a panel of working
film/TV composers to come in and talk about anything they want --
rather than a preselected subject by our producers or me. SCL
(Society of Composers and Lyricists) executive director Laura Dunn
will sit in to cohost and assist in moderating.
