Attracting over 20,000 attendees last month, “Wednesday Wind Down In The Point” is rapidly
becoming the hottest summer concert series in metropolitan Atlanta. It is an economic
development initiative of East Point City Councilmember Sharon Shropshire. “Wednesday Wind
Down provides an opportunity to gain exposure to East Point’s thriving downtown with the goal
of attracting new businesses, residents and visitors to the city,” said Shropshire. “It also serves
as a platform for East Point residents to socialize with neighbors, relax and enjoy a free summer
concert with great music and food.”
In July, Legendary Hip-Hop Group Goodie Mob received a proclamation and the first Keys to the
City of East Point from Mayor Deana Holiday Ingraham and City Council during their “Coming
Home Celebration” at “Wednesday Wind Down In The Point”. The City of East Point proclaimed
July 24, 2019, as “Goodie Mob Day” to recognize the group’s contribution to music and their
community. Organized Noize founding members Rico Wade and Sleepy Brown were also in
attendance as special guests. Other performers of the night included Cherrelle, Dana Dane, Kilo
Ali and the popular local band Jukebox.

Celebrity photographer and disabled Vietnam veteran Jerome Dorn embodies the very definition of resilience. Born in Philadelphia, the fifth of seven children, Dorn stayed focused throughout his youth, eventually obtaining his degree in Criminal Justice. Dorn has worked with the Philadelphia Police Department, Department of Justice, World Wide Detective Agency, and several other high profile security groups. Throughout his successful career, Dorn wrestled with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, an aftereffect of his military service. Battling the pain and debilitating effect of PTSD, Dorn found comfort behind the camera. Photography proved to be not only therapeutic, but life changing as well. Dorn picked up his first camera in 1970 while serving in Vietnam and knew instantly that behind the lens was where he belonged. His shooting style and photographs were special, generating a buzz in the industry. In 1985, he began his career in photojournalism, working in a variety of genres. Dorn’s credentials include fashion, lifestyle photography, photojournalism, and celebrity/red carpet coverage. Working with MSNBC, Jet Magazine, and major publications in Philadelphia and around the country, Dorn has had the honor of capturing the images of hundreds of notable celebrities and politicians including President Barack Obama, George Bush Jr, Bill and Hillary Clinton, Maya Angelou, Jesse Jackson, Rihanna, Snoop Dog, Will Smith, and Tyler Perry. Photography has sent Dorn around the globe, inspiring his passion for civil activism. In 1995, Dorn assembled and led a group of forty-two men to the Million Man March. Together, they spent five days walking from Philadelphia to Washington DC. In his travels, Dorn observed a common theme amongst the youth of the world. Many of the children he encountered seemed lost. Understanding that opportunities for at-risk youth are minimal, Dorn was inspired to make a difference. Established by Dorn in 2011, InDaHouseMedia was built on the idea that there is room in the house for everyone. With InDaHouseMedia, Dorn’s mission is to provide the future generation with positive direction through sports, music, and photography.
