What a pleasant surprise. This guy played a guitar like  Bobby Womack, dressed like a dapper don, has a movie star name and sounds like the late Spencer Harrison. Colionne was the perfect choice for Jazz in the City's North Salina location.

A. Travis Reed, aka Renfro Jenkins does a Stevie Wonder cover during an open mike night at Transitions 658.

The Sound of Syracuse is alive and well at the new Transitions 658 venue on North Salina Street. We got wind bout this joint from one of our friends, and was pleased to see and experience a cadre familiar local musicians letting their hair down and groove everything from Stevie Wonder, D’Angelo, Bob Marley, Erykah Badu, Toni Braxton, and even some H-Town last night.

There was also an open mike segment that included some original poetry that reminded us of the musicology served up at the old OnaJava’s Soul Food Sundays.

More than 2 million refugees have arrived in the United States since the Refugee Act of 1980 was established, driven from their homelands by war, political change, and social, religious and ethnic oppression…In medium-sized and smaller metropolitan areas, refugees can have considerable impact on the local population…The leading refugee destination metro areas have shifted away from traditional immigrant gateways over the past two decades, while newer gateways are resettling proportionally more refugees.

In 2012, The Onondaga Citizens League explored the refugee experience in Central New York.  A summary of the results were published in a report called The World at our Doorstep. Some of the great recommendations included creating a Refugee Resource Center, developing a World Market Square/Village and convening a Refugee Health Task Force.

Here are a few more points we should consider for new citizens (coming from the other side of the world or from across the country)

  • Let them be themselves
  • Identify and magnify their strengths
  • Let them know what is going on
  • Make them proud to be here
  • Don’t hinder them with obtuse rules
  • Give them meaningful work

Earlier this week at a public meeting, SU Chancellor Nancy Cantor called Syracuse a “city of opportunity.”

Welcome to a new kind of Syracuse story.
