Featured on the March 4th, 2021 edition of ARIZONA SPOTLIGHT with host Mark McLemore:
- Meet entrepreneur Ashley La Russa, founder & owner of Roux Events. Her creation Blax Friday provides the largest accessible directory of Black-owned businesses in Arizona. Mark talks with La Russa about the ways she has found to help these businesses navigate the pandemic.
- For the first time since the 1950s, Tucson did not hold its official gem, mineral and fossil showcase in February because of the pandemic. Even though separate, smaller shows are scheduled to be held in April, the cancellation had a major economic impact. Tony Paniagua reports on how two local merchants are moving foward.
— And, John Coinman is a singer and a songwriter who has spent decades traveling the world with his music. He shares an emotional song that was written before the pandemic began, but seems to express so many of the emotions that have come along with it. "Love is Everywhere" is featured on Coinman's sixth studio album, Under the Sun.
