BOBBEE BEE: (2013) DUPLIN COUNTY ENRICHMENT PROGRAM


While some people, choose to hate.

And, others, plot to boycott.

The show doesn't stop.

Why? Because....

Bobbee Bee made another guest appearance at the Duplin County Summer Enrichment Camp  at E.E.Smith Junior High School in Kenansville, North Carolina on Thursday, June 26, where he had a gymnasium full of children from kindergarten through 3rd grade, plus  students from grades 4 through 8,  laughing out loud, and singing songs, while learning a few valuable lessons about life, love and hate.

Yeah, hate.
Because, their were a few haters in the crowd.

But, when it was over.

The frowns turned into smiles.

Why? Because....laughter is the best medicine.

Plus, it's contagious.

Because during Bobbee Bee's  potential life-changing presentation, children volunteered to act silly, while dressing up in different costumes from the Graham Brother's classic children's book "In the Mind of Bobee Bee," which is a part of their successful "BACK TO SCHOOL WITH A NEW ATTITUDE" literacy program, which attempts to teach students about the importance of self-esteem, academic success, bullying, personal hygiene, self-defense, self-control, and personal responsibility in the classroom and at home

Graham, who attended E.E.Smith Middle School as a child, said he got chill-bumps returning to the school, which he had created so many memories at.

"I love coming back to E.E.Smith. This school has a special place in my heart because my mother and father graduated from this school along with my aunts and uncles, plus my brother." Graham admitted.

"And today, I made a little history. By coming back, on the shoulders of my ancestors and those who have been forgotten to give back a little piece of that old E.E.Smith legacy."


Truthfully, it is a celebration every time Bobbee Bee presents his twisted brand of education, which allows children to examine their hearts, face their internal struggles in order to discover their true identity.

Also, while attending E.E.Smith, Bobbee Bee addressed the issue of not using drugs, avoiding  gangs, and making school a place of peace by not bringing guns on campus.

Along with all of that, he did a little shameful self-promotion as well, as he announced the premiere of his NEW controversial up-and-coming movie "BOBBEE BEE THE HATER THE MOVIE," which is scheduled to be shown at James Sprunt Community College in Kenansville, NC on September 21, 2013.
So, get your popcorn ready!!

BOBBEE BEE: I CAN, I MUST, I WILL!!!

Unhappiness is not knowing what we want and killing ourselves to get it-Don Harold

By Iyanla Vanzant

Can I continue to live in lack and limitation, denying myself the abundant goodness of the world?

Or can I make a plan, a follow a dream; do what I can, where I am, with what I have?

Can I? Can I? Can I?

Can I continue to buy into the belief that there is not enough, I am not enough, settling for whatever I can get?

Or can I do my best in every situation, expecting the best from every situation, recognizing that what I put out must come back to me tenfold?

Can I? Can I? Can I continue to live in fear, complaining about what I do not have, cannot do, criticizing myself and others?

Or can I take a chance, find an opportunity and know in my heart what I want to do is possible?

Can I?

Can I?



Can I blame the world, hate my enemy, and feel sorry for myself as an excuse not to do what I desire to do? Or can I raise my consciousness, pour love into every situation and take responsibility for myself?

Can I? Can you?

BOBBEE BEE: HANDS UP!!! DON'T SHOOT!!!

In New York City, 123 people have been killed by law enforcement officials since Sean Bell was slain in 2006.
These are just some of the lives that were stopped short due to police encounters.

Look at their faces.

Read their stories.

Know their names.

This is just the tip of the iceberg that is police brutality.
 Even though their lives were taken from us, do not allow them to be forgotten.
They all have faces…

They all have names…

BOBBEE BEE INVADES JOHNSTON COMMUNITY COLLEGE!!

Despite Tsunami-type rains, the people still came out in full force in order to see Bobbee Bee "The Hater" The Movie at Johnston Community College in Smithfield, NC on Saturday September 13.

Bobbee Bee "The Hater" The Movie, which was written and directed by Eric Graham, financed and filmed by Terrence Graham, and edited by Darius Carr, is a film, that has been described as a "psychological comedy," which takes a hilarious journey into the mind of a troubled teenager, who tries desperately to cope with his anger and self-hatred.

The thought-provoking film, to the many moviegoers in attendance, lived-up to all its hype, which surprisingly made them laugh, love, and learn as it took them on a roller coaster ride until the very end.



"This movie continues to grow in its importance.. every time it is shown, " said Eric Graham, who is a proud graduate of Winston-Salem State University.

"It, in fact, is a timeless piece, which I believe, will one day be considered a cult classic..."

Not surprisingly, keeping in character, however, the star of the film, William Isiah Shakur, who played Bobbee Bee "The Hater," failed to make an appearance to his own film due to the bad whether.

Despite Shakur's no show, everyone who viewed the film admitted that he did an excellent job in his portrayal of Bobbee Bee, which was based closely own his own life experiences as a teenager.

"I am very proud of  my son..." confessed his father Terrence Graham, who currently works as an Academic Advisor at the prestigious Hampton University.


"This film couldn't have be made without his brilliant performance..."

Even though Bobbee Bee wasn't presence, another character named "Smoking Joe Black," who created a lot of buzz throughout the film, which was played by Andre Walker, tip-toed smoothly down the Red carpet with his signature well-groomed Afro and Afro-pick.

To his surprise, Walker's father, Andre Robert Lee, traveled all the way from Washington, DC in order to view his son's acting debut in the movie.

"Please support this movie...it was very entertaining and my son was outstanding as "Smoking" Joe Black." said the proud father.

" I would like to thank Terrence Graham for giving him the opportunity to shine."

With Walker's acting skills being displayed on camera along with a host of other budding young stars, Bobbee Bee "The Hater" The Movie has the potential to land up in somebody's film festival or the big screen as well as B.E.T. in the near future -the sky's the limit.

Honestly, it's simply amazing what a couple of "country boys" from Magnolia can accomplish, especially if they don't let their inflated egos get in their way.

With that said, many people will be shocked to find out that 95% of the cast and crew in the film are all from Duplin County, which is a testament of the GREATNESS that resides in this small tight-knit community.

After the film was over, the Graham brothers, asked the audience, who viewed it Saturday night at Johnston Community College to utilize social media, whether on Instagram, Twitter, or FaceBook in order to help them promote the movie.

"We utilize social media, especially Facebook, to post a lot of stupid stuff..." said Terrence, during the question-and-answer portion of the film.

"However, now, you have an opportunity to post something positive, which potentially could have a direct impact on the minds of our children."

If anyone still denies the importance of this small independent film, Scott and Tammy Pettiford Bonds, who were in attendance with their two sons, made it crystal clear that the film made an instant impact on their 16 year old son.

"Bobbee Bee The Hater is already a household name...we've already made connection to the movie last night when parenting our 16 year old. He got it!!

Stay tune for the next viewing of this film.

Because, it is coming to a town near you.

BOBBEE BEE: MISTER OFFICER!!!

Chuck D, of the legendary rap group, Public Enemy, once said, that Hip-Hop was the CNN of music.

Well, if this statement is true, Eric Graham, the creative mind behind the cartoon character Bobbee Bee "The Hater," which is a clever acronym that stands for H.is A.nger T.eaches E.verybody R.eality, just gave the world a sneak peak into the subconscious mind of young Black males living in America, in general, with his latest controversial song entitled Mr. Officer, which was recorded at Payroll Studio in High Point, NC by the legendary Supreme DJ Nyborn.

Especially, after the shooting death of an unarmed 17 year old teenager named Michael Brown, whose body was left in the middle of the street for at least 5 hours after he was shot down in broad daylight by a storm of bullets from the gun of officer Darren Wilson in Ferguson, St. Louis.
With the tragic event becoming headline news, which led to police wearing riot gear, while displaying military-style weaponry along with armored tanks and tear gas,
Graham, who is a "journalist by day and a rapper by night," tried to capture the raw emotion, anger, and rage building up in the minds of young Black males as well as the entire Black community with his latest release, Mister Officer, which reminds many Hip-Hoppers of the 1988 protest song "F#*@ da Police" by N.W.A, which appears on the highly anticipated mix tape/slash album called Pocket Full of Ghetto Poems, that was dropped days before the independent film Bobbee Bee "The Hater" The Movie, was shown at Johnston Community College in Smithfield, NC on Saturday, which was written and directed by him and his brother Terrence Graham.

With the song currently appearing on SoundCloud-and floating around the Internet, the "part-time" rhyme spitter plans to release the video to the song on Facebook this Sunday.

Yes, these are Revolutionary Ideas that you can feel...

So, get ready!!!

Because, this small-town MC with Big City Dreams, next single called Revolutionary Suicide, which was inspired by the writings of legendary Black Panther member, Huey P. Newton, is scheduled to drop in two more weeks.

BOBBEE BEE: IF JESUS CAME TO YOUR HOUSE

By Lois Blanchard Eades

If Jesus came to your house to spend a day or two -
If He came unexpectedly, I wonder what you'd do.

Oh, I know you'd give your nicest room to such an honored Guest,
And all the food you'd serve to Him
would be the very best,

And you would keep assuring Him
you're glad to have him there -
That serving Him in your own home is joy beyond compare.

But when you saw Him coming, would you meet Him at the door

With arms outstretched in welcome to your heavenly Visitor?

Or would you have to change your clothes before you let Him in?

Or hide some magazines and put the Bible where they'd been?
Would you turn off the radio and hope He hadn't heard?
And wish you hadn't uttered that last, loud, hasty word?
Would you hide your worldly music and put some hymn books out?
Could you let Jesus walk right in, or would you rush about?


And I wonder - if the Savior spent a day or two with you,
Would you go right on doing the things you always do?

Would you go right on saying the things you always say?
Would life for you continue as it does from day to day?

Would your family conversation keep up it's usual pace?
And would you find it hard each meal to say a table grace?


Would you sing the songs you always sing, and read the books you read,
And let Him know the things on which your mind and spirit feed?

Would you take Jesus with you everywhere you'd planned to go?
  Or would you, maybe, change your plans for just a day or so?

Would you be glad to have Him meet your very closest friends?
Or would you hope they'd stay away until His visit ends?

Would you be glad to have Him stay forever on and on?
Or would you sigh with great relief when He at last was gone?

It might be interesting to know the things that you would do
If Jesus Christ in person came to spend some time with you.
