Sleepy Hollow’s Orlando Jones' Bio

On the Fox hit Sleepy Hollow , Orlando Jones wore the clothes of Captain Frank Irving, the voice of reason in a town plagued by a mysterious headless horseman. On the Internet, he's his show's biggest fan, or at least one of them; he even runs his own Tumblr, much to the delight of Sleepyheads.

Kanye West, Maroon Five and David Banner all made their television debuts on the Orlando Jones Show on FX in the early 2000s.  His love of music and eye for launching new talent may not be surprising, but audiences will be surprised to learn that he is a prolific singer in his own right.

Although he’s known to many audiences as a comedic talent, Jones has in fact worked in every facet and genre of the filmed entertainment business for nearly two decades. He began his career as a teenaged comedy writer on one of the most popular shows in TV history, Cosby Show spin-off A Different World.

After working on the pilot to Fox’s hit show Martin (starring Martin Lawrence) Jones put his writing career on hold and relocated to New York to launch the new cable channel FX. His range of responsibilities included hosting SoundFX, a daily live music show where he interviewed renowned musical acts including Nirvana, Flaming Lips, Arrested Development and many others.

ALFRED HASSLER

Alfred Hassler worked for the Fellowship of Reconciliation (FOR) from 1941 to 1974. He wrote books and countless articles, while his most famous creation would be the 1958 Montgomery Story comic book about the civil rights movement led by Martin Luther King.

In 1965, Alfred Hassler led a mission to Vietnam and met Thich Nhat Hanh and Sister Chan Khong. For more than a decade, they would work together to raise the voice of the Vietnamese Buddhist movement.

THICH NHAT HANH

A Buddhist Zen master, poet, teacher and author, Thich Nhat Hanh was one of the Buddhist opposition against the US-backed regime during the Vietnam War and the violence of both warring parties- a stance that left him exiled from his native Vietnam for four decades. During the late 1960s, he became one of the icons of the international antiwar movement. Before his exile, Thich Nhat Hanh had spent time in the West, studying at Princeton and teaching at Columbia in the early 1960s.

SISTER CHAN KHONG

Known during the Vietnam war by her lay name, Cao Ngoc Phuong, Sister Chan Khong is a Buddhist nun who began working to improve the living conditions of the Vietnamese poor at the young age of 13. After her studies, she became a professor of biology at Saigon University. In 1964 she joined Thich Nhat Hanh, a progressibe buddhist monk who was calling for peace and solidarity with those who were suffering.

Martin Luther King and the Montgomery Story

One of the 'The 5 Powers' film's big surprises, is the largely unknown comic book that turned Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. into a Superhero. Dr. Sylvia Rhor, Martin Luther King, Jr. scholar from NYU, shares the origins of the powerful "Martin Luther King and The Montgomery Story" Comic Book.

In 1956, Alfred Hassler had an idea: he wanted to work with Martin Luther King to produce a comic book - a comic book to be distributed in the South to young and old, African Americans and white Americans, to tell the story of the struggle for civil rights in Montgomery.

The idea itself was groundbreaking. Rarely does one think of a comic book as an important tool in the struggle for civil rights, but this comic book has been quietly changing the course of history around the world for over 50 years.

THE OFFICIAL '5 POWERS' ORGANIC T-SHIRT PARTNER


BLOOMING LOTUS DESIGNS

$9 from the sale of our Blooming Lotus Organic Cotton T-shirts go directly to the Thich Nhat Hanh Foundation to support the valuable work of Thich Nhan Hanh and the Plum Village Community.

 

 

At Blooming Lotus Design we believe that the messages from Thich Nhat Hanh’s brush must be matched by the environmental and social practices involved in putting this garment into your hands. We have spent years researching harmless ways to grow cotton, knit it into fabric, dye it and screen it. It’s not just a tee shirt, it’s a healthy revolution in how we clothe ourselves. Plus, 100% of wholesale go to benefit the Thich Nhat Hanh Foundation. Wear it in peace.

How We Treat Our Cotton

All Blooming Lotus apparel is created from “suffering-free” and non harmful growing practices. Where conventional cotton uses carcinogenic pesticides, herbicides, fumigants and defoliants, Blooming Lotus cotton is grown organically using only natural fertilizers that are created at the field locations, and our growers raise insects that prey upon those pests that eat cotton. Add plenty of clean fresh water and sunshine and you have a crop that is safe for wildlife, birds, insects and the health of the migrant workers that harvest it. These practices are verified to strict organic standards by OEKO-TEX.

How We Treat Our People

There are two communities of workers that provide Blooming Lotus Design with their cotton and finished apparel.One is the field workers themselves, who plant and harvest our cotton crop in Southern India. These are primarily women, often with their children, who are particularly vulnerable to a wide range of chemicals that are used in conventional cotton fields. In our case, they and their families can work and play in our cotton fields with no adverse effects.

The second community of workers is those in our partner factories in Pakistan. All our workers are treatedwith deep respect, to standards established by Social Accountability International (see below). A third party certifier thn ensures we uphold these high standards by auditing our factories annually (this includes the knitting, dying, cutting, sewing, printing, of your garment.

THE TOPSPIN MEDIA COMPANY

Founded in 2007 by Shamal Ranasinghe and ProTools co-creator Peter Gotcher, Topspin Media is made up of a passionate group of music lovers, film nerds, marketers, and developers who wake up every day inspired to help artists find new fans, promote their work, and sell new products. Their mission is to create an artistic middle class. And it's happening.

Currently more than 55,000 musicians, comedians, labels, managers and filmmakers use the Topspin Platform to grow their audience, communicate with fans, and sell music, video, merch and ticket bundles. As a result, the average transaction across the Topspin Platform is greater than $20. When you look at optimized campaigns - what some might call the typical Topspin campaign - the average is greater than $50. Add tickets to the campaign and the averages start to approach $90.

Why is this important? Nielsen recently estimated that the music industry is losing as much as $2.7 billion in overall value by not better targeting music fans with more creative products. The Internet has created an attention economy, where distribution is easy but attention is scarce. Success is now determined by the strength of an artist's connection to their audience. At Topspin Media, they build software for artists to establish lasting and meaningful relationships with fans, communicate with them around the web, and sell far higher-value products in return.
