Who says jazz isn't popular? The "Bridges From the Heart" jazz concert was a sellout. Some 700 jazz enthusiasts jammed into the Meyerhoff Symphony Hall lobby, as some local jazz musicians did some jammin' themselves in one corner of the room. Folks sipped wine and browsed a buffet, awaiting the night's big event -- a concert by acclaimed trumpeter Wynton Marsalis; his father, pianist Ellis Marsalis Jr.; and several other musicians and artists. The evening celebrated the 10th anniversary of Learning Independence Through Computers.

And what sets it apart is made apparent in the course of an opening monologue from Linc's owner Russell Lincoln (Steven Williams), who bemoans how liberal whites get together to make films about African-Americans and the result is "classic films like 'Booty Call.' ""Linc's Place" is that rarest of TV commodities, a series about minorities -- in this case, African-Americans -- that treats them as people, not as demographics.

We're either in Princeton or prison; there's no in between."
