Soul Food Speaker Series – Damario Solomon-Simmons, Esq., M.Ed.

Monday Feb 24 | 7:00 pm - 8:15 pm

“Law is his Ministry and Justice is his Passion!” best sums up Damario Solomon-Simmons.

Growing up in a single-mom household, struggled for years to “find himself” as a Black man in America and graduated at the bottom of his high school class and was a college dropout before becoming a University of Oklahoma football letterman, graduating with honors with his Bachelor’s Degree in African & African-American Studies, Masters in Adult & Higher Education, and becoming OU College of Law’s 1st African-American recipient of the Joel Jankowsky Award for most outstanding law graduate.

He has been a practicing attorney for almost 16 years and currently is the Managing Partner of SolomonSimmonsLaw an Oklahoma-based law firm where he specializes in Civil and Human Rights, Wrongful Death, Employment Discrimination, Public Policy, and Sports Law.
He has a nationwide practice and has represented dozens of high profile clients and causes including advocating for reparations for the survivors of the 1921 Greenwood Massacre, citizenship rights of Black Descendants of Muskogee Creek Nation Freedmen, and managing the business and legal affairs for several NFL and Olympic athletes. Currently Damario serves as lead counsel for the family of unarmed Terence Crutcher and for the 7 Rape Victims of convicted Oklahoma City Police Officer Daniel Holtzclaw.

In addition to being a 2014 National Booker T. Washington High School Hall of Fame Inductee, in 2015 the Oklahoma Bar Association named Damario its recipient of their Ada Lois Sipuel-Fisher Diversity Award, in 2016 the National Bar Association named Damario one of the top “40 under 40” lawyers nationally, and this year Tulsa People Magazine named Damario Tulsan of the Year.
Outside of law, Damario is the co-founder and Executive Director of the MVP Foundation whose mission is to inform, inspire, and empower 8th grade boys from single-mom households. Damario is on the Board of Visitors of OU’s African-American Studies Program. Damario is also a highly sought after speaker and a frequent media guest that has been featured on such media outlets as CNN, The View, 60 Minutes, MSNBC, ESPN, The New York Times, The Root, and Roland Martin Show.

Damario is passionately in love with his high school sweetheart, wife, and business partner Mia and they live here in Tulsa where he is a member of Metropolitan Baptist Church and the Xi Omega Graduate Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc.

theEnd Presents Cheat Codes Live

Friday Jan 24 | 9:30 pm - 11:45 pm

theEnd is excited to bring CHEAT CODES to campus on January 24th in the BLUU Ballroom!! Gates open at 9pm and the show starts at 9:30pm! Get ready for some great music and making memories with your fellow Horned Frogs!

Your TCU ID is your ticket!!

Euphoric and effervescent, Cheat Codes have it figured out. Perfectly blending pop and electronic music, the LA based 4x platinum three piece seem to know something that we don’t know – they’ve figured out the secret to life, or at least a way to jump right to the good part.

Comprised of Trevor Dahl, Matthew Russell and Kevin Ford, the group have seen a meteoric rise since they first formed in LA two years ago. “Matt and I met like 5 years ago, and we lived together a few different times since then,” Trevor explains. “We never really made music together seriously. But when I moved to LA, Matt and Kevin started to write and we worked on a song together, and that’s when it all happened.”

Releasing music independently, the group were an overnight success with their hits “Turn Me On,” and the tropical infused re-work of Salt N Pepa classic, “Sex”,  that generated half a billion streams on Spotify.

Since their first single with 300 Entertainment, “No Promises” ft. Demi Lovato, the group have gone on to cement themselves as one of the fastest growing pop and electronic acts. “No Promises”  proved to be the song of Summer 2017 – peaking at #5 at POP Radio, the song has reached 4X Platinum status globally with over 600 million cumulative streams and has surpassed 1 million sales equivalents in North America. “No Promises” was nominated for a Teen Choice Award as well as iHeart Radio Award and Cheat Codes performed it with Demi on both The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and Good Morning America.

The group followed with “Feels Great” featuring 300 Entertainment labelmate, Fetty Wap. The inspirational anthem features Cheat Codes’ signature sugary electronic hooks paired with Fetty Wap as you’ve never heard him before. The song has 50M+ cumulative global streams, and has hit top 30 art pop radio and climbing. The group performed the song on Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Cheat Codes  have been commissioned for official remixes from acts like Katy Perry, Niall Horan, Rita Ora and, played major festivals like the Billboard Hot 100 and Firefly, and have been hand selected to tour with The Chainsmokers.

theEnd Presents James Lafferty and Stephen Colletti Live

Friday Feb 7 | 10:00 pm - 11:45 pm

Are you a fan of One Tree Hill or Everyone is Doing Great? Maybe MTV’s Laguna Beach or The Haunting of Hill House? Either way you won’t want to miss a night with James Lafferty and Stephen Colletti on February 7th in the BLUU Ballroom!

A little about James Lafferty: James Lafferty plays the role of original Mercury 7 astronaut ‘Scott Carpenter’ in National Geographic’s scripted series THE RIGHT STUFF, which is based on Tom Wolfe’s bestseller. Recently, James recurred in the Netflix hit series “The Haunting of Hill House” and played a strong supporting role in the critically acclaimed Nelms Brothers film “Small Town Crime” opposite John Hawkes and Octavia Spencer. Previous credits include starring roles in two other Nelms Brothers films, “Lost on Purpose” and “Waffle Street,” a supporting role in Blumhouse’s “Oculus,” a recurring role in WGN’s “Underground” and series regular roles in the CW’s “One Tree Hill” and NBC’s “Crisis.” James has also branched out to direct several episodes of “One Tree Hill” and “The Royals” for E! Networks and continues to develop projects as a writer and producer. As a vehicle to encompass all of his passions, he created, wrote, directed and starred in the first season of the independent TV show “Everyone is Doing Great,” which is currently playing at festivals worldwide.

A little about Stephen Colletti: Stephen Colletti first appeared on MTV’s Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County back in 2004. After two seasons, Colletti left the show and traveled to New York City, landing a job as a VJ for MTV’s Total Request Live (TRL). Colletti has appeared in multiple films including: Normal Adolescent Behavior (debut), Shannon’s Rainbow, Mask Maker, and Hometown Christmas, to name a few. In 2006, Colletti began recurring on One Tree Hill where he eventually reached series regular. One Tree Hill finished in 2012 with Colletti maintaining series regular and credited with sixty episodes. In 2014, Colletti appeared in Celluloid Dreams, a short film written and directed by Jonathan Dillon, which went on to win two grand jury awards and entered the prestigious pool for Academy Award nomination-eligible shorts. In 2016, Colletti reprised his role on VH1’s first scripted series, Hit The Floor, where he recurred since 2013. In 2018, Colletti co-wrote, produced, and starred alongside One Tree Hill costar James Lafferty in the television series Everyone Is Doing Great. The duo crowdfunded the first season, achieving eight episodes.
