Check out this week's star-filled edition of UPFRONT Inside the Entertainment Industry. It features the 'Queen of All Media' Wendy Williams, director Darren Grant, Jamal Ahmad and the men of "One Night In Miami," Eli Goree, Leslie Odom, Jr., Aldis Hodge and Kingsley Ben-Adir. 

I was joined last Saturday morning at 8:00am on The Local Take On WCLK by Sistagraphy. Sistagraphy is a collective of African-American women who photograph their and our stories. I spoke with Catherine Alston and Sue Ross about their organization. I asked the ladies about the changes in photography that have occured since the start of the organization. Film and dark rooms were the technology used at their inception.  Now many photographers use digital or phone cameras to capture images.
