Mocha Media Inc, is a new publishing venture created by Mocha Ochoa, CEO of The Oracle Group International, A Black Woman owned Publishing Consulting Firm.
As part of his birthday celebrations, Russell Simmons unveiled the “Eat to Live” book cover at gatherings held online, at his home in Bali hosted by his daughters Ming and Aoki, and at the historic Ben’s Next Door in Washington D.C., hosted by publisher Mocha Ochoa.
In conjunction with the theme of the book, each party reflected “A Post Pandemic Lifestyle.” In Bali, Simmons used this opportunity to give the gift of COVID testing to the residents of Ubud Bali.
In Washington D.C., guests engaged with Simmons and his co-writer Simone Reyes as they spoke about Eat To Live in a masked, socially distanced event. Included in the book cover unveiling were Zoomed testimonials from fellow vegans Jermaine Dupree, John Salley along with other notables to include Snoop Dogg, Rihanna, Dr. Benjamin Chavis, Jr., Kimora Lee, and his brothers Rev Run and Danny Simmons.
According to Mr. Simmons, “I want the rest of my life to be about service and helping to uplift people spiritually and physically; so they can have happier, healthier lives. I lost so many friends from COVID due to preventable preexisting health conditions which were attacked by COVID. This book is dedicated to those wanting to make a little bit of a change.”
“Now is the time to not only reclaim ownership of stories that celebrate our Blackness,” says Mocha Ochoa. “But we must also ensure that there are platforms for writers to operate as change agents, just like they did in Harlem Renaissance and Negritude movements. In creating these spaces where we can discuss these ideas, we will be able to hold the conversations that inspire solutions and ultimately lead to the healing of our communities.”
