Dinner Mates Presents: The Steam Room with Ruth and Flash

On June 22, 2020, Dinner Mates sponsored a zoom discussion forum to discuss what we can do to come together for a more fair, fun, and peaceful society. Led by Ruth McDaniels and Flash Rosenberg. This event partnered with Ponty Bistro in Harlem.

Many people were disappointed to not able to join the event live, so I created this video to make the discussion available to anyone who missed the event, and/or who wants to watch it again.

Artist Flash Rosenberg first met activist Ruth McDaniels in The Steam Room at the Harlem Y, where they began a daily conversation flaunting their feisty, diverse perspectives about public and personal issues that matter. 

Ruth McDaniels is an electrifying Activist, candidate for NY City Council District #9, and for more than 25 years, she trained, supervised, and formulated policies to enhance the safety and well-being of Peace Officers and improve relations with the community, in her work as Sergeant for the Human Resources Administration for the NY Police Department. She is a Chaplain actively involved in faith communities where she uses spiritual energy to fight injustice.

Flash Rosenberg is an “Attention Span for Hire” who draws, animates, photographs, writes, and performs. She is a 2011 Guggenheim Fellow, served as Artist in Residence for LIVE from the NY Public Library, and is a Mainstage storyteller for The Moth. Flash Rosenberg Studio is a full-service cartoon, photography, motion picture, merriment, and mischief factory based in Harlem.

This is a slightly edited version of the zoom discussion.
