We Came To Sweat is a feature-length documentary directed by Kate Kunath and Sasha Wortzel about the eviction and historical erasure of the oldest Black owned gay bar in Brooklyn. The film explores the intersections of race, sexuality, and gentrification through the documentation of a historic and cultural institution on the verge of disappearance.

Riding high on the recent enthusiastic endorsement of none other than Ms. Wendy Williams herself, Nathan Seven Scott implodes the literary world with his debut release, “My Turn”. “My Turn” is book one from the trilogy series, The Knight Affairs. In a riveting story of moguls, the plot thickens with murder, betrayal and tragedy. Only New York City could be the back drop for such an electrifying panorama of seduction and the road to success.
Please join Nathan on February 29, 2012 to get your copy of “My Turn.”
