BGSQD presents “Eden’s Garden – A Road of Triumph and Battle”: Intimate Conversations (in person & live-streaming)

November 17 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The pre-promotion tour has started for the upcoming book release of Eden’s Garden – A Road of Triumph and Battle, which will be available in 2024.

Seven King’s memoir takes a vulnerable look into the experience of a young independent who went through a maze to fulfill an idea that was bestowed upon him. The idea came during one of the toughest moments in his life and came with mockery, tests, and gossip even in his own community. Being a passionate individual and fighter, he overcame all tests that would have set the average person back. However, this idea catapulted him into the seasoned and well-skilled creative director he evolved into.

This book will be a three-part manuscript: an autobiography of the experience of developing the project, an advice column for those transitioning or thinking about it, and a fictional novel. The book is a piece to give the true insight, wisdom, motivation, and creativity of the brand of Eden’s Garden and more understanding to the man behind the vision. Please join Seven for a night of pre-celebration through intimate conversation and the reading of the first 5 pages of the novel and Q&A with the director.

There will be open and honest dialogue with Seven while considering the questions many of us wrestle with: How do we build a project from scratch? How can we discover strength and community inside our differences? What tools do we use to address feelings of self-doubt vs purpose? What do we do when it all starts to feel like too much? Why is it important to follow your own gut when reaching for your goals? These will be some of the topics discussed at the promotional book tour stop for Eden’s Garden. Come join us for two hours of reflection, conversation, and celebration for Eden’s Garden – A Road of Triumph and Battle.

 

Registration is not required. Seating is first come, first served. Also live-streaming on the Bureau’s YouTube channel: youtube.com/@bgsqd. Suggested donation to benefit the Bureau: $10. All are welcome to attend, with or without a donation.

 

Malachi King, known as Seven, stands as the visionary force behind The Nile Creatives and Seven King Productions. With a lineage rooted in the legendary hip-hop ensemble Grandmaster Flash & the Furious Five—his father’s legacy—Seven effortlessly embraces the entertainment realm. Opting to forge his distinct path to greatness, he emerged as a film director, producer, author, screenwriter, motivational speaker, and a steadfast advocate for the trans community.

Malachi’s educational journey led him to Clark Atlanta University, where he adeptly mastered various hands-on programs within Mass Media, ultimately ascending to the role of Mass Media Department President. Amidst these formative years, he lensed music videos for fellow students, igniting his creative spark and birthing engaging vlogs. This initial foray gradually evolved, culminating in the inception of his own short films and the groundbreaking web series, “Eden’s Garden.” This audacious creation garnered immense traction, amassing over 2 million YouTube views and propelling him into the spotlight—earning recognition as one of Ryan Murphy’s top emerging directors, affording him the coveted opportunity to shadow the prolific creator on set.

Presently, Malachi’s production company thrives, a crucible for diverse visual arts encompassing feature films, web series, dynamic social media content, and evocative documentaries. His unwavering mission revolves around imbuing narratives with visceral impact, transcending mere sight to evoke profound emotional resonance. Rooted in a distinct and contemporary vision, his projects beckon viewers to re engage, repeatedly immersing themselves in narratives that authentically mirror the communities and social causes that resonate deeply within him.

This burgeoning luminary has already etched an indelible mark upon his community, poised for an even more remarkable trajectory. Anticipate a wealth of forthcoming endeavors from Seven King Productions, a revitalized incarnation of his viral sensation, “Eden’s Garden,” poised for an exciting resurgence in the summer of 2022.
