Artist as an Entrepreneur Institute Graduate, Timothy Long Talks on ‘Pulling it All Together’
By Samantha Rojas"

Timothy Long studied with Toni Morrison at Bard College, brainstormed with National Geographic photographers in Maine; traveled to Nicaragua to report on life during the Iran-Contra war and documented the birth of bohemian Key West for PBS. He was in California for the Dot-com boom and then its bust; and his professional history writes like a “How to” manual on getting started and succeeding in various forms of media.


Joanne Hyppolite, Ph.D.: A Sense of Community & Human Life to the City
by Stephanie Krulik

Joanne Hyppolite greets her visitor with a strong handshake and a welcome invitation to become part of her world. Seated on deck chairs on her 9th floor south Florida apartment balcony, a cool April breeze sweeps by and a bright Florida sun reveals the Atlantic Ocean far beyond. The fact that Hyppolite is an award-winning Middle Grade novelist (8-12 year-olds), short story writer, Chief Curator at the History Miami museum on Flagler Street, and mother of her six year-old son, Carl, provides integrated complexities in her everyday life.


Broward County’s Historic Islands: Pine Island, Long Key (Sam Jones’ Seven Islands), Big City Island, and Snake Warrior’s Island
By Patsy West, Director, Seminole/Miccosukee Archive, Fort Lauderdale

Here in Broward County, we are most fortunate to have valuable, historic green spaces. Some of these sites represent the earliest and most important sites in the County. And, because our county has seen some of the most aggressive development in southern Florida, we are doubly fortunate that these spaces were preserved before they were bulldozed into oblivion in the name of progress and financial opportunity.
