★ Ronald Haynie
Ronald Haynie is a writer, and an actor from childhood with background television work dating back to the 1970’s, from the CBS daytime serial “The Guiding Light” to today’s “30 Rock” and “Nurse Jackie”. He has hosted his very own hit “Friday Nite Mic With Ronne” in Harlem for 5 consecutive years, and now awaits the spring 2014 release of his fiction novel “DUPPY: Ya Reap Whatcha Sow” with the stageplay version returning to various theater stages.

His affinity for the late Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s legacy took on a new historic level this year once “TENGO UN SUENO”-the complete Spanish translation of Dr. King’s Nobel prize winning “I Have A Dream” speech-became memorized.
Mr. Haynie says, “Dr. King has been embedded into my five senses since I was formed. My spiritual choice to memorize his work in two different languages is a blessing from a higher power, and it is my duty to keep the spirit of MLK alive year round, in English or Spanish, fifty years later.”
