Affirmative Action for Who? More
Black College Students Are Immigrants
At the most selective universities, African immigrants comprise a dis-
proportionate number of black students.
In a groundbreaking new study from the American Journal of
Education, researchers reveal that first- or second-generation immigrants
comprise a disproportionately high percentage of the of Black student
population at U.S. universities. The percentage increases in proportion to
the selectivity of the institution.
In the Ivy League, more than 40 percent of the Black population is of
immigrant origin, despite comprising just 13 percent of the Black popu-
lation overall.
In recent years, prominent African American intellectuals such as
Henry Louis Gates Jr. have called attention to the perceived overrepre-
sentation of children of immigrants among African Americans attending
selective colleges and universities in the United States.
This fact has become the focus of vigorous debate about the purposes
of affirmative action in higher education and whether Blacks of immi-
grant origins -- as opposed to Blacks who are the descendants of slaves -
are the appropriate beneficiaries.
The debate has transpired largely in the absence of statistical informa-
tion.

Singer Actress Barbara McNair
Dies at 72 of Throat Cancer
Singer and actress Barbara McNair,
who starred opposite Elvis Presley and
idney Poitier and became one of the first
black women to host her own television
variety show, died this week at 72.
'After making her feature film debut in
the 1968 crime drama "If He Hollers Let
Him Go," she went on to star along with
Mary Tyler Moore and Jane Elliott oppo-
site Presley in his last movie, 1969's
"Change of Habit." McNair, Moore and
Elliott all played nuns and Presley por-
trayed a doctor.
McNair may have been best known in
movies for her role as Poitier's wife in
the 1970 classic "They Call Me Mister Tibbs!" and its 1971 sequel "The
Organization."
She hosted a syndicated musical variety series, "The Barbara McNair
Show" in 1969 when few black women were given such opportunities.
Entertainers who appeared on the show during its brief run included
Tony Bennett, Sonny and Cher and Bob Hope.
Acting roles dwindled for McNair in the 1970s and '80s but she con-
tinued to sing at nightclubs and cabarets and made occasional TV appear-
ances on shows such as "The Jeffersons" and the "Redd Foxx Show."

Even Black Youth Are Concerned
About the Stage of Rap Music
The current image of rap music and rap music videos is cause for con-
cern among Black youth, according to a recent survey by the Black Youth
Project of young people ages 15-25 from around the country.
Survey findings reveal that 72 percent of Black youth agree rap videos
contain too many sexual references.
The majority of participants agreed that rap music videos portray Black
women and Black men in bad and offensive ways.
Sixty-six percent of Black women are more likely than White women
(55%) and Hispanic women (53%) to agree that they are portrayed in a
demeaning light in rap videos.
Although 57 percent of Black men feel that rap videos portray Black
women in bad and offensive ways, 44 percent of them disagree that the
videos portray Black men in bad and offensive ways.
The feelings towards the excess of rap's sexual side was manifested in
a desire for other sides of the genre to be expressed, as 41 percent of
Black youth stated that rap videos should be more political.
In addition to cultural views, the survey polled youth on sex, sex edu-
cation, gender roles, government and politics and discrimination.

FEMA Wants Over $300M
in Katrina Aid Back
In the neighborhood President Bush visited right after Hurricane
Katrina, the U.S. government gave $84.5 million to more than 10,000
households. But Census figures show fewer than 8,000 homes existed
there at the time.
Now the government wants back a lot of the money it disbursed across
the region.
The Federal Emergency Management Administration has determined
nearly 70,000 Louisiana households improperly received $309.1 million
in grants, and officials acknowledge those numbers are likely to grow.
In the period after two deadly hurricanes, Katrina and Rita, slammed the
Gulf Coast in 2005 Katrina making landfall in late August, followed by
Rita in late September federal officials scrambled to provide help in
hard-hit areas such as submerged neighborhoods near the French Quarter.
People who were forced to flee their homes were eligible for a wide
range of federal help, ranging from rental assistance to $2,000 debit cards
that could be used to replace personal possessions and buy food.


Household payments were capped at $26,000.

Black America Should Speak Up and Out About War Costs


by H.T. Edney
U. S. Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.),
the only member of Congress who
voted against a bill that gave
President Bush unfettered authority
to wage war after Sept. 11, now
says Black people must demand an
end to what appears to be unfettered


spending on war while domestic
needs go unmet.
"The Black community has got to
start organizing around this defense
budget because we have huge tax
cuts for the wealthy and huge eco-
nomic, social, educational, health
care and housing disparities in our


country," says Lee. "We need
resources and these are our tax dol-
lars. African-Americans have got to
demand our fair share and demand
that we began to have a rational
defense budget... And our commu-
nity needs to recognize the fact that
it's taking away $2 billion a month


now that we could use here at
home."
The Bush administration has
already spent $500 billion $100
billion a year on wars in Iraq and
Afghanistan since 2001 and is
expected to spend at least $100 bil-
lion more this year. Cont. on page 3

Jacksonville Gets a Taste of Fine Art


Shown above is Patricia Sams admiring an original by Romare Bearden at the Cummer Museum.
The country's largest collection ofAfrican-American art, the Walter Evans Collection, opened this week at the
Cummer Museum of Art. The gala opening reception complete with Harlem Renaissance style live jazz and per-
sonal greetings by Dr. Evans himself, gave insight to the works inside of the extensive collection which was spon-
sored in part by Evans' friend, local businessman Carlton Jones and his wife Barbara. The collection features 80
original works drawn from more than 500 collected by Dr. Walter Evans over the past 40 years. The collection
chronicles the achievements of African-American artists working from the mid-19th century to the present.
For more on the Walter Evans Collection at the Cummer, see page 5.

to ensure that our best days are not
behind us, but are before us."
Ammons was in Tallahassee last
week along with the other two can-
didates Thelma Thompson, presi-
dent of the University of Maryland
at Eastern Shore; and Howard C.
Johnson, special assistant to the
chancellor for the final interview
with the full board.
"As a graduate, I know first-hand
the value of FAMU and its mighty
contributions... its rich history and
legacy that spans almost 120
years," Ammons said in his opening
statements. "The legacy of my
family and FAMU are forever
linked ... Many of my junior high,
high school teachers, guidance
counselors whom I respected the
most are all graduates of FAMU."
A native of Winter Haven, Fla.,
Ammons also told the board and a
packed audience that it was after a
trip to the Orange Blossom Classic,
where he saw FAMU's
Marching'100' perform, that "he
knew "FAMU was the place for me.
He became a FAMU Rattler in
1970, graduating in 1974 with a
bachelor's degree in political sci-
ence. He then earned a master's
degree in public administration
in1975, and a doctorate in govern-
ment in 1977, both from Florida
State University

Why Doesn't Networking

: Work For Me?

Yesterday, a colleague of mine forwarded me the following ques-
tion he received in reference to attending FraserNet's
PowerNetworking Preview Series.
My wife and I have attended soooo many "networking" events tai-
lored to provide black professionals and/or disadvantaged businesses
with connections and opportunities to work with large companies. At
the end of the day, none of those events provided any new jobs or even
tangible leads let alone contact with individuals or companies that
could use our services, tell me how Mr. Fraser's 3-hour event is going
to differ from those typical experiences. -- Anonymous
A great but typical question: The answer lies in adhering to the first
principle of effective networking; You give first, share always. The
getting comes later. Sometimes, much later. This takes time.
I have found that this is the common feeling, common question and
mis-directed paradigm about networking. The first step in all net-
working is to establish the human connection to find common ground
with someone; The more common ground (i.e. people, places and
things), the higher the trust level; The higher the trust level, the more
willingness a person has to share key contacts, information and
resources. People will not share with you until they trust you... This
too takes time.
What so many people have done is to put the responsibility on us to
do their work. They in effect blame us for their inability to shorten the
time that it takes to cultivate, nurture and develop relationships.
In a classical sense, most are looking to get something as opposed to
looking to give, serve and add value. They are looking to sit at the
table and to eat first. But the real question is: What do they bring to
the table?
Put me or any skilled networker in any room and we will walk away
'as winners every time, having discovered at least 2 people we can
serve, help and be helped by....superior interpersonal skills, attitude
and the law of attraction are keys to success.
Time, patience, investment and understanding the first principle of
effective networking are also the keys to success!
Bottom Line: Here's what you get when you come to a
PowerNetworking Preview event:
Networking secrets from the Master Networker!
An opportunity to promote who you are and what you have to offer!
An opportunity to make contacts that count!

Keep Your Options Open as Retirement Approaches


S,f


By Jason Alderman
It used to be, you'd work hard your
whole life, then retire with a gold
watch and a few good years left to
visit the Grand Canyon, spoil your
grandchildren and get hooked on
daytime TV. Pension plans were the
rule not the exception, Social
Security was healthy and employers
encouraged early retirement to
make room for younger workers.
Things are much different today.
The average lifespan is seven years
longer than in 1960, but correspon-
ding medical breakthroughs have
led to astronomical health care cost
increases that crimp many retirees'
lifestyles. And, as 77 million baby
boomers rapidly approach retire-


ment with
only 44
million
GenXers to
take their
place,
employers
may face
severe per-
sonnel
shortages.
According
to an
American


Association
of Retired Persons (AARP) study,
nearly 80 percent of baby boomers
expect to work at least part time
after they retire, for a variety of rea-
sons, including: 1) Those who can't
afford or qualify for individual
medical insurance will need to con-
tinue working until Medicare kicks
in; 2) Many people haven't saved
enough for retirement and keep
working to stretch their savings and
receive benefits; 3) Even when
money isn't a concern, many people
continue working because they'd
miss the social interaction, mental
challenge and physical activity a
job provides; and 4) Some people
keep working in order to give back
to their community through volun-


steering, mentoring younger workers
or working at a non-profit organiza-
tion whose mission aligns with their
values.
Working after retirement age does-
n't necessarily mean the same old
thing, year-in and year-out. Many
people switch fields, explore new
interests or cut back on hours and
responsibilities while still drawing
an income. Here are a few ways to
plan ahead:
Find senior-friendly employers.
More companies are recognizing
the strong work ethic, skills and sta-
bility older workers can provide.
AARP publishes "Best Employers
for Workers Over 50" at
www.aarp.org/bestemployers. They
suggest looking for companies that
offer benefits to part-time workers,
long-term care and disability insur-
ance, flexible work hours, financial
planning services, and alternative
work arrangements like telecom-
muting, job sharing or phased
retirement.
Talk to your current employer. If
you seek greater flexibility or less
responsibility, talk to your current
employer first. Given the expected
shortage of experienced workers,
they might be accommodating,
especially if you'd otherwise leave
carrying institutional knowledge
you could share with less-experi-
enced coworkers.


Boost your skills. Whether con-
templating a career change or sim-
ply protecting yourself from down-
sizing or layoffs, recognize that you
may need to update your business,
computer and interviewing skills.
Check your local community col-
lege for low-cost courses. Also,
many Web sites offer tips on job
hunting, resume building and career
transition, including www.mon-
ster.com, www.hotjobs.com,
www.careerbuilder.com and
AARP's site.
Go independent. Many people
with specialized skills find they can
make a good living and lead a
more flexible lifestyle as a con-
sultant. Independent contractors
receive many favorable tax advan-
tages; however, if you plan to retire
and then consult for your former
employer, first check with your
Human Resources department for
any restrictions that may apply.
No matter what your retirement
goals are, the sooner you start plan-
ning, the better. Practical Money
Skills for Life, a free personal
financial management site spon-
sored by Visa USA (www.practical-
moneyskills.com/retirement) offers
a comprehensive guide to retire-
ment planning.
Remember, the more options you
have, the more likely you are to
enjoy the next chapter of your life.


A jury found former Coca-Cola
administrative assistant Joya
Williams guilty of trying to sell
secret information on new Coke
products to rival Pepsi, the Atlanta
Attorney General's office said.
In a verdict which could land her
in jail for 10 years, Williams, 41,
and two co-conspirators and ex-
convicts, Edmund Duhaney and
Ibrahim Dimson, were arrested in
July for scheming to collect 1.5
million dollars from PepsiCo for
Coca-Cola secrets.
Duhaney and Dimson pleaded
guilty to conspiracy in October and
agreed to cooperate in the case
against Williams in the case which
began January 22. The two are
awaiting sentencing and could also
face 10 years behind bars.
After two days of deliberations, a
jury of six men and six women on
Friday found Williams guilty of
conspiracy in the case.
"We are disappointed with the ver-


dict," her court-appointed lawyer
Janice Singer said, adding, "Ms.
Williams will appeal."
The case has all the trappings of
cloak-and-dagger spy caper: secret
documents, a cash payoff in a Girl
Scout cookie box and an undercov-
er FBIagent.
Williams was accused of stashing
confidential documents, as well as
product samples, in her bags and
walking out of Coke headquarters
in Atlanta in 2006. She then hand-
ed the products over to Duhaney
and Dimson to sell to Pepsi.
In May 2006, Pepsi received a let-
ter from ,Dimson claiming he was
employed at a "high-level" with
Coca-Cola and had confidential
information about products that
Pepsi should be interested in.
The products pertained to new
Coke products, not the ultra-secret
Coca-Cola formula which is report-
edly stored in the vault of a down-
town Atlanta bank.

Selling Company Secrets


Adkins Agency Relocates

to Downtown Jacksonville
On any given day Ken Adkins could have at least
a dozen things to do. Now he has one more. At the
top of his list, new business cards.
For Adkins and his growing full service public rela-
tions agency, moving up actually means going
down-downtown that is. The agency recently relo-
cated to Monroe Street
Right now Adkins can look anyone in the eye and
tell them that his company, "can compete with any-
Adkins one in the country." And they do. So how does an
former addict turned CEO go from working out of his home to an
impressive address downtown? Of course Adkins who has been
ordained a reverend will tell you all the credit goes to his Lord and
Savior. But he says it's important to understand that God willput peo-
ple in our lives to help us.
For.Adkins he, has a..handful, of die hard supporters .Folks like the
Reverend Gary Wiggins and the Reverend Mark Griffin. And there are
others, State Senator Tony Hill also comes to mind along with Charlie
Wilson, Kevin Gay and Reggie Gaffney.
So with a few more boxes left to unpack Adkins says he still has a lot
on his plate. He plans to continue publishing his Christian lifestyle
magazine the Covenant. Meanwhile he has a weekly television show
with the same name. For Adkins it's been a long road, and he's proud
to have so much on his plate, including having to get new business
cards.

Local School Named After KKK Founder May Be a Choice of Pride or Prejudice


by Dana Maule
In a previous issue the
Jacksonville Free Press reported
the controversy of Forrest High
school and the efforts of a local
Professor to change the name of the
school. The last meeting held on
Jan. 8th was a step forward for
Professor Stoll. He presented a
civil service project to Duval
County School Board School
Board members that would change
the school's name from Nathan B.
Forrest, the name of the first grand
wizard of the Ku Klux Klan, to a
name that would be more political-
ly correct reflecting Jacksonville's
diverse population. The meeting
resulted in the School Board
requiring Stoll to do a survey of
community opinion of the potential
name change, with a final decision
to be made at a later date.
The requested survey was devel-
oped and distributed by Forrest's
Principal, Helene Kirkpatrick and
Steve Stoll at the SAC meeting
held at Cedar Hills Elementary last
week to representatives of all the
Area 5 district schools. Stoll took


the responsibility to distribute the
survey in other areas of
Jacksonville.
Jacksonville has seen attempts in
the past to change the name of the
high school though none have
reached the current momentum. If
the name of Nathan B. Forrest High
School is to be changed, it will be
up to the citizens of Jacksonville.
Carole Douglass, the media spe-
cialist at Forrest, says that her
mother went to Forrest and that in
all the previous attempts to change
the name of the school the people
have voted against it. "The people
who went to Forrest aren't going to
change it," said Douglass.
The physical paper survey has
made the battle more of a reality.
Forrest's current 1800 student pop-
ulation will be surveyed at Forrest
allowing one vote for a school
name of their choice: Charles
Bennett, Firestone, Forrest, Mary
Singleton, Scott Scott Speicher,
and Eartha M.M. White High
school. Voters are also allowed to
write their own suggestion.
If the name is changed opens up a


new can of worms for the adminis-
tration. How the school would pay
for it is the concern of Kirkpatrick.
If the name changes the cost of the
mascot, new jersey's and school
sign board will have to be consid-
ered.
According to Stoll, district Chief
of Staff David Sunstrom assured
Kirkpatrick that he would partici-
pate in the procurement of
resources to cover expenses.
The suggested name by Stoll of
naming the school after
Jacksonville humanitarian Eartha
M. W. White is also an issue.
DCSB Chair Rachel Ranery
informed those in attendance that
the School Board could not accept
the name Eartha White if that was
the name selected by the people.
According to Ranery, the School
Board would not allow two schools
named White, which would include
Ed White. She also added that
Forrest students and alumni would
not vote for a name that was simi-
lar to the school's rival, Ed White
High.
Advocates of Stoll were offended


at the statements made by Ranery
on behalf of the School Board. A
man in attendance said that the sur-
vey was not effective if Eartha
White would be thrown out.
Ranery, corrected herself, by say-
ing that it was not a final decision
of the School Board but that it was
mentioned to her off the record by
a fellow member.
Issues also surrounded the option
to select Scott Speicher as the name
for the school. Some proposed that
because he was not dead that the
suggestion for his name did not
meet School Board requirements.
Scott Speicher was a graduate of
Forrest and is the only military per-
son listed as MIA in the 1991 Gulf
War. In order to name a school after
someone they must be deceased.
Despite the debate, the survey
was still distributed. Stoll encour-
ages people of the community to
call the School Board, and find a
way to participate in the survey.
The Forrest High school name
change is no longer a west side
issue.
If the controversial moniker of


Nathan Bedford Forrest was born in Bedford City, Tn. He died in
1877, in Memphis, Tn. Prior to the war, he was a planter and a slave
dealer. Shown right is the school's mascot just a 'good ol' boy'?


the Forrest High School Rebels is
to change, it will be up to the citi-
zens of Jacksonville. The histori-
cally accurate fact of Nathan
Bedford Forest being an advocate
of segregation and separatism,
often with violence, through his
organization of the KKK is no


stranger to the history books. The
ongoing battle between school
pride vs. historical prejudice began
by Stoll and his sociology class will
ultimately end when Jacksonville
citizens decide what matters more -
pride or prejudice.


Black America Has Just Reasons for Stepping Up and Out Against Rising War Costs


Continued from Page 1
But a "Common Sense Budget"
bill that Lee co-sponsored and
pushed unsuccessfully under
Republican- control in the 109th
Congress shows what could be
done by making modest cuts in
defense spending. She plans to re-
introduce the bill in this session of
Congress.
The original version states that
"The DepartmeThe original version
states that "The Department of
Defense's increasingly large budget
provides for total defense spending
that is greater than military outlays
of the other 192 countries in the
world combined."
According to the bill, the Defense
spending continues while:
- "Federal spending on elementary
and secondary education has fallen
to less than 10 percent of the pro-
posed 2007 outlay for the
Department of Defense;
- Schools throughout the nation are
eliminating programs in music, for-
eign language, and physical educa-
tion;


- Sixty-one million individuals in
the United States lack health insur-
ance during some period of any
given year, and half that number of
individuals (more than 10 million
of whom are children) lack such
insurance for the entire year;
and, the Government
Accountability Office estimates
that [a third] of the nation's public
schools, serving 14 million chil-
dren, need extensive repair or need
to have their entire physical plants
replaced. Eighty-five percent of the
nation's public schools, 73,000
facilities serving 40 million chil-
dren, need some repair work, cost-
ing more than $120 billion, repairs
that could have been paid for nearly
five times with the money America
has spent on the war.
In addition, the D.C.-based Center
on Budget and Policy Priorities
reports that the U. S. has a budget of
$5.1 billion dollars for the
Children's Health Insurance
Program that covers less than half
of the eligible children. Moreover,
more than 100,000 children a year


lose coverage because the funding
is frozen to budgetary constraints.
If it were not for war spending at
the rate of $100 billion a year, the
U. S. could fully fund Child Health
Insurance at least 10 times, accord-
ing to CHI cost estimates. The cost
of fully funding CHI at a total of
$50 billion over the next five years.
"Everybody should worry about
the depletion of our resources,
about the rebuilding of Iraq and
about the investments abroad when
their children here at home are
going lacking with educational sup-
plies, when their family incomes
are being lessoned because job loss-
es are taking place in this country,"
says House Majority Leader Clyde
Clyburn.
But what will mobilize action?
Howard University Political
Science Chair Lorenzo Morris says,
"People will not be mobilized until
someone says, 'You can't pay for
this very good idea'. And so, to
some extent, issues like national
health care or major innovations in
educational need to be

identified as policy options in order
to really mobilize people," says
Morris. "The cost issue will help
[the Democrats], but it may not be
dramatic because the alternative
expenditures are not always evi-
dent."
Congresswoman Lee's bill, H. R.
489, aims "To reallocate funds
toward sensible priorities such as
improved children's education,
increased children's access to health
care, expanded job training, and
increased energy efficiency and
conservation through a reduction of
wasteful defense spending."
The bill, which she expects to
introduce late this month or early
March, is just one response to what
is being increasingly criticized as
wasteful spending by the Bush
Administration.
"The president is out of touch,"
Congressional Black Caucus Chair
Carolyn Cheeks Kilpatrick (D-
Mich.) says in an interview. "It's


social justice that people want, it's
access to capital, it's really the
American way of life that all of us
want and deserve. Americans have
got to demand it and Congress has
got to act."
Kilpatrick, Lee and other
Congressional Black Caucus mem-
bers have joined Democratic lead-
ers and even some top
Republicans in opposing the pres-
ident's defense spending plan.
"We ought to really be concerned
any time you have just ordinary,
hard-working people finding it
harder and harder to make a living
and prepare for their family's future.
And that's what this war is doing to
us," says House Majority Leader
James E. Clyburn (D-S.C.) in an
interview.
The economic impact of the war
does not only affect the poor, but
the economy of the nation as a
whole, says Bill Spriggs, chair of
the Howard University Economics


Department..
"People have to guess about the
future, so their attitudes about the
future will affect their spending,"
says Spriggs. "So, if people think
that housing prices will moderate or
fall and continue to think that their
taxes down the road will have to go
up based on war, then you can see
people saying that, 'When I get
extra money, I'd better not spend it.
I'd better reduce my debt. If con-
sumption pulls back and the rate of
increase slows because enough peo-
ple get more pessimistic, then the
rate of the economy slows."
In addition to money, the war in
Iraq has cost 3,000 American mili-
tary lives since 2003
She states, "African-Americans
must march, call, email, have meet-
ings with their members of
Congress and tell them to stop sup-
porting this huge military build-
up."

"Education is the sole and only hope of the


Negro race in Anerea," Still True Today


Every year when Black History
Month rolls around I say that am
not going to write about it. I guess
that's like me saying that I am not
going to buy my wife flowers for
Valentines this year yeah right!
It's hard not to talk about the
obvious. Because Black History
month just so happens to be my
favorite month of the year I have to
say a little sumpin', sumpin' as we
would say in the hood.
First, congratulations to Tony
Dungy, the coach of the
Indianapolis Colts, who just won
the Super Bowl.For those living in
outer space, Dungy was the first
brother or should I be more formal
and say, the first African American
coach to win a Super Bowl.
In fact, for the first time in histo-
ry two black head football coaches
where in the NFL's big game.
Lovie Smith was the coach of the
Chicago Bears, who lost to the
Colts. The greatest aspect about the
"Big Game" was that no matter
who won, Smith or Dungy, we
were going to be praising someone
for being the first black coach to
win a Super Bowl.
Now if we can just get Tiger
Woods to admit that he is black
then we would really have some-
thing to brag about. Or better yet, if
Michael Jackson would leave the
skin lightener alone, we'd really be
making inroads.
Getting back to the essence of
what Black History month is about;


we should certainly spend more
time this month reflecting on all of
great accomplishments that African
Americans achieved in this coun-
try.
We can never forget about the
struggles and hardships faced by
our people. From slavery and
lynching, to segregation and humil-
iation, Blacks certainly have
endured much in this great "Land
of the Free."
I think that it is safe to say that
while blacks have made significant
strides since the spark of the civil
rights movement, there is still a
long way to go. This is a month of
recognition and thanksgiving for
those who paved the way, but it is
now more important than ever that
blacks fulfill the goals established
by our forefathers.
This means black folk must get
out and vote in every election pos-
sible. It also means that we must
take advantage of the educational
opportunities that are before us and
reverse the negative social and eco-
nomic cycles prevalent in our com-
munities.
One of the problems that African
Americans now face internally is
that our young black children have
no appreciation for the struggle.
Today our youth are more con-
cerned with what is going on right
now versus the past or the future.
Although I am fairly young, I must
say that those in my age bracket,
mid-twenties to mid-thirties,


understand the struggle of the past,
but younger generations seem
somewhat lost.
At the end of the day, I still feel
that education is certainly the key
to turning our communities around
and improving the quality of life
for all. It's interesting if you think
about education from this prospec-
tive.
Slaves could be killed or beaten
for attempting to learn to read.
Schools were segregated so that
blacks and whites wouldn't have
the same learning environment,
which meant that African American
schools basically got the short end
of the stick. For decades blacks
were denied the same educational
opportunities as whites.
With all of that said, now that the
playing field has been somewhat
(shall we measure the inequities
between Raines and Mandarin
High Schools?) leveled to a large
degree, why aren't there more
African Americans taking advan-
tage of the educational opportuni-
ties that exist today? Remember
people fought and died for the level
of equality and opportunity that
minority groups currently have.
You don't have to be Tavis
Smiley, Cornell West or Martin
Luther King, to figure out what is
right in your face. Blacks who edu-
cate themselves are normally far
more successful than those that
don't.
Aristotle said, "The roots of edu-


cation are bitter, but the fruit is
sweet." Aristotle is basically saying
what I say to youth all time. If you
are committed to your education
right now, the reward for that com-
mitment will inevitably be worth it.
Again, we have to teach our youth
to stop being short sighted, and
start thinking more about their
future.
To me that's what this month is
about taking that additional time
to reflect and focus on those things
that can have a positive impact on
the least of us. U.S.
Congresswoman Barbara Jordan
perhaps said it best, "Education
remains the key to both economic
and political empowerment."
So the importance of education is
no secret, but one might think that
it is if you look at the state of the
black community especially black
males. Educated black men seem to
be a dying breed.
Nearly 30 percent of black males
will likely serve time for a felony
conviction, which is a rate seven
times that for white males.
Right now there were more black
males in prison than in college.
That one fact alone amazes me, but
it goes directly back to a lack of
education.
I end in the immortal words of
Booker T. Washington, "Education
is the sole and only hope of the
Negro race in America."

Obama Will Need More Than Hope to Beat Hillary


by Chris Stevenson
When Barack Obama came to
national prominence he was just
Barack Obama, when he became a
real threat to become the IL
Senator, right wing talk radio
grunts began calling him Obama
bin Laden, now he's a threat to
become President of the United
States, and his true middle name
comes out; Barack Hussein
Obama. I realize that from his van-
tage point there may be food for
thought to consider a run for
Campaign'08. Democrats like him,
for the present he seems like their
Knight in shinning armor. Senator
Joseph Biden (D) of Delaware was-
n't completely wrong, he is bright,
he wears good suits, he smokes,
there's some old school sophistica-
tion mixed in with real world cool
in this brother. He's only played a
couple of cards since his IL victory,
he's against the war, he favors
Universal Health Care. There's just
one small problem, he's running
against some white woman named
Hillary.
No I didn't buy Obama's book, I
glanced through it briefly at a local
book store and determined that I
read my last children's book back
in grade school. To tell you the
truth I can't remember if it was
"Peanuts" or "The Cat in the Hat."
Don't get me wrong, I know
Obama is playing his hard-line
cards close to his chest, but boyish
charm has never motivated me to
spend money on authors. Bill
Clinton once complained that then-
Joint Chiefs of Staff Chair Colin
Powell was getting a free ride back


when Powell was considering a run
for the '96 campaign. Obama is dif-
ferent, in an era when Bill's wife is
the democratic front-runner; he is
giving us a free ride. Many blacks
fear Obama's lack of any signifi-
cant attachment to their community
won't result in the "Funky
President" that J.B. once sang
about, leaving a fluffy president.
Personally I don't want fluff in the
Oval office, after all the damage
that Bush caused, what the country


needs is battle-tested. We still have
yet to see what else is coming from
the republicans, pitting young
Obama against Giuliani or
Condoleezza Rice (don't believe
she can't enter the fray late, so as to
avoid media scrutiny between Fall
'07-Spring '08) may hurt the dems.
While Obama doesn't need direct
connections to Al Sharpton and
Jesse Jackson in order to win in '08
(Dinkins and Wilder won Mayoral
and Governor elections in the early


'90's by mostly keeping their dis-
tance from them), he's not going to
get away with just searching for
"universal" issues. He needs that
black vote. At some point he's
going to have to snuff out that
"Newport" and mention our issues;
police brutality, racial disparities in
education, and jobs. He doesn't
have to wear a leather jacket and
shades, just give us a Shout Out!
For now this cat may not be ready
to wear that hat, but he'll make an


What does it mean when the President won't listen?


By. Bill Fletcher Jr.
In the last couple of months there
have been disturbing develop-
ments that tell us a great deal
about the Bush administration and
the danger it poses to the world.
A bi-partisan commission-the
"Iraq Study Group"-came out
with a series of recommendations
on how the U.S.A. can deal with
the disastrous situation unfolding
in Iraq. Drawing from noted
Democratic and Republican offi-
cials, the Study Group's recom-
mendations did not go as far as I
happen to think that they should.
What they did suggest, however,
was putting an emphasis on a
political resolution of the Iraq cri-
sis. The Bush administration and
its allies not only ignored the rec-
ommendations, but mocked them
as not serious.
We were then treated to the sur-
real "State of the Union Address"
where a very frightened and
frightening President Bush essen-
tially told the people He was


going to pursue the war his way
and his way alone. Following the
State of the Union Address, when
his speech was treated to the wide-
spread criticism it deserved, he
and his allies had the audacity to
argue that if one did not like their
plan of increasing US troops in
Iraq and provoking a war with
Iran, that they should come up
with another plan.
Well, Mr. President, a bi-partisan
commission did come up with
another plan after months of study
and you disregarded each and
every aspect of that proposal, so
what plan are you looking for?
The answer, of course, is that
there is no other plan than the one
that the Bush administration wish-
es to advance, a plan that shows
little chance of success and, even
in the words of many of its own
supporters, is nothing short of
more of the same. Well, except for
one thing: Bush's current plans
may result in an expansion of the
war in Iraq to a war with Iran, and

from there, who knows?
So, given that we are dealing
with a president who is convinced
that he and only he knows what to
do, what should people of con-
science do?
The first thing that we have to
accept is that we truly are in a sit-
uation of no more business as
usual. In other words, it is not
enough to express outrage through
occasional national demonstra-
tions and then go home and expect
that things will improve. Don't get
me wrong, national demonstra-
tions are not only important but
they are essential. It is just that
they are not enough. We must
combine national and local
actions, including local demon-
strations; letters and calls to local

SPEAK LOUDER

H P Once Again Marching

in the Wrong Direction
b' I. Marcel Furious
One of the good things about joining a new community
is that you tend to work a little harder to study its character-
istics. I didn't need to look far to get a snap shot of Florida's First Coast.
Jacksonville is a good place to li\e.. if you're %white or are on the upper
half of the income bracket.
I also see what. perhaps. most of Jackson\ille knows all too much about
right no"\. The buzz about violent crime and that unfortunately is a glow-
ing. and grow ing, characteristic of the Ri\er City.
For all the attention that violent crime receded last year. Jacksonville
seems headed back for more of the same in 2007. While the bodies contin-
ue to stack up. what did communir "leaders" decide to do?
March... AGAIN.
Don't get me wrong; I lo\e a good march for the cause and it's not a total-
ly bad idea. However. sometimes it's all about perception and reality.
The perception is that marching does eern little to curb violent crime. The
reality is that marching has done nothing at all to curb violent crime.
All of the talking. yelling and blaming probably, hasn't prevented one per-
son from being murdered. Certain[.. at some point those who organize such
events must realize this.
As organizers gathered at the African-American church on Jacksonville's
north side last week to eventually end up at Hemming Plaza. they had to
ha e kno\\ n that they were about to go marching in the wrong direction.
Geographical as well as figuratively.
From a geographic point of \ iew. marching into downtown Jacksonville
looking for answers to \ violent crime can onli benefit one's cardiovascular
system (a brisk walk always gets the blood circulating real good). Black
folks don't o\\n anything around Hemming Plaza but hopelessness and
despair. There is nothing in do\ nto\ n that can help stem the tide of vio-
lence in the black community. In fact. as long as black leaders look to City
Hall. the Sheriffs Office or the courthouse for help they will always be
waiting in vain. Change \will never come from there.
If organizers really wanted to make an impact they should have marched
through the heart of those high crime neighborhoods asking citizens ques-
tions of survival as they dole out resources for hope. I can see it now, hun-
dreds of people marching through some of the toughest streets in town
read\, to lend a helping hand to whoever needed it at the moment. Their
momentum of lo\e would act as a magnet, bringing in those who feel left
out. People who are normally afraid to entiree out of their homes would
start to gain an advantage over those \\ ho terrorize the streets. This could
be repeated regularly in hopes of establishing that type of relationship
needed to offer hope to comrnumities on the edge of collapse. It would be a
significant step in connecting with the segment of Jacksonville's communi-
ty that seems to have lost its \\a\.
Figurativel. let's face it: the w white community is never going to be will-
ing to sacrifice to the le\el that the community needs to see significant
change. The direct effects of \ violent crime have yet to reach the doorsteps
of those neighborhoods that populate the movers and shakers of
Jackson, ille. Therefore, marching to Hemming Plaza and spewing heart-
felt rhetoric is an easy "out" for them. In their minds, marching proves that
the, are engaged on the frontlines of the tight to retake our streets. When
in fact the\ haven't done, or \ Illing to really do. anything.
Time after time, history has proven that the only time white folks really
participate in endeavors that involve a majority of black folks is when a
significant amount of monei is in\ol'.ed No\ I'm sure that there are some
sincere whitee Americans out there v ho \"ant to help things get better (I
went to the MLK breakfast, and heard the speeches). However, the ones
who could make a real difference just are not \ killing to get into the "fight."
That's probably because the\ ha e \et to find the self fulfilling benefit.
In other \words. if there proved to be a way for the white leaders of
Jackson' ille to capitalize monetarily off of reducing crime in the hood, the
negative numbers associated with \ violence would d ha\e evaporated yester-
day. They know it and realistically we know it.
Think about it. whenever there is an opportunity to take advantage of eco-
nomic development opportunities the good 'ol boss move mountains, and
tax dollars, to make it happen
Can you say Super Bowl. Better Jackson% ille Plan and. lest we forget, the
Shipyards?
White city leaders accomplished e\actl'i what the, wanted to do, which
was to make money for each other. At the same time, blacks were left out
as the seeds of despair continue to be so-ed.
Black folks should wake up and realize that they must be the change
agent in their own communities. The\ must come together and sacrifice as
if evert life depended on it. Black folks. especially men, must send a mes-
sage that because the\ love their children so much they are willing to do
anything to protect them. That protection includes providing leadership in
education, finances, health and rights of passage.
When that happens blacks ,ill be able to create significant growth oppor-
tinities within their own communities. There\ eliminating the need to
demand change from white folks from the airport to St. Augustine.
At that point, white powerbrokers that operate within the walls of the
city's sav\ iest capitalistic institutions including local government) would
be more than ~ killing to stick their noses in the business of positive change.
I'd een be \willing to bet that some whtes would be prepared to take cred-
it for the turnaround.
No. marching is not a bad thing. Ho"we'er. deep down inside we know
that the community finds that it brings no resolution to the problems of
toda.. It's time to turn around and head in the other direction. Look inside
and explore the strength unity brings. Roll up the sleeves of every willing
black person and put them to work. And for those who are not willing.
teach them ho\w to be.
It's time for blacks to move past an'i expectation of white assistance. It's
probably those expectations that are responsible for the destruction we see

ing was done in 1848. Evans noted
that many of the African American
artists of the 19th century mimicked
European artists.
"The patrons they worked for were
not interested in images of Black
people. Therefore you would not be
able to see the differences between
arts by Black-Americans from art
by a Europeans." He said.
The 80 pieces on display at the
Cummer museum were previously
on tour at the Detroit Institute of
Art. Much of his collection has
been traveling over the past few
years. The collection has made its
last stop in Jacksonville and will
remain at the Cummer until April
17. Evans says that a decision will
have to be made soon on where to
house all of his collection. Many


Another significant piece of the
collection is The Negro Speaks of
Rivers (for Langston Hughes) by
Aaron Douglass. This painting was
done to celebrate Langston Hughes
first poem The Negro Speaks of
Rivers.
The Evans' have traveled broadly
across the world collecting art. The
have been rewarded with the cul-
ture and history behind such treas-
ure as well as the friendship of the
artists who created them. One of
their closest friends Romare
Bearden has a number of works that
are apart of the Evans collection.
The Jazz Rhapsody by Bearden
was the first commission of Evans.
Another valued piece by Bearden is
The Piano Lesson. Evans was eager
to attain this piece because of the

Jacob Lawrence, Romare Bearden,
August Wilson, James Weldon
Johnson. These names and others
ring out loud to the rich history of
Black America. They also share a
renewed importance to the city of
Jacksonville as part of the Walter
Evans Collection currently on exhi-
bition at the Cummer Museum. The
traveling exhibit, consisting of 80
works of paintings, sculptures and
ephemera categorized is the largest
African-American art collection in
the world.
The Cummer Museum recently
celebrated the opening of the
Exhibit with a gala reception and a
meet and greet of the collection's
owners, Linda and Walter Evans.
While in town for the opening, Dr.
Evans had the opportunity to see
the impact his art had on youth with
a 'hands-on' tour by students from
the Florida School of the Deaf and
Blind. As a youth, he passionately
shared with media and attendees he
did not have any exposure to art.
"I was nearly brought to tears see-
ing the children coddle these mas-
terpieces for the first time." said Dr.
Evans. "If I ever had any doubts
about my collection's value, it was


reinforced then."
Divided into four phases, the
Collection's dimensions include: a
display of 19th century paintings;
spiritual illustration of art; music as
a muse and phase four is modem
and abstract work of art.
Evans began in 1970 what would
be a passion that would last
throughout the decades. There was
a young lady that he was dating
while in college that he wanted to
impress. He said that he went to the
library and began learning about
various artists and before he knew
it, art became a passion and love of
his own. Not only was his invest-
ment kind to his heart, it was also
an incredible economic venture.
His first piece that he paid $1700
for is now valued at over $180,000.
Jacob Lawrence's The Legend of
John Brown, a portfolio of 22 silk
prints, was the first major piece of
his collection. In total he has
amassed thousands of art works
consisting of paintings, sculptures,
ephemera, and 1st edition books,
documents and letters by African
Americans.
Evans earliest art piece is The
Man Fishing by Robert Scott
Duncan. This oil on canvass paint-

others are stored at his home.
Evans views all of his art as his
children.
"They are all different, but I love
them all the same." He said.
Though he doesn't have a favorite,
his wife Linda says that The Reader
by William H. Johnson and The
Potter by Motley are her favorites.
Adding to the significance of the
Evans Collection is the fact that
many of the artists personal friends
he often commissioned.

What f the President Doesn't Listen
Continued from page 4
I have raised this in the past, and I will raise it again. African Americans
need to stand up in opposition to policies that led to the Katrina catas-
trophe and the on-going catastrophe in Iraq. They are intimately related.
The same administration that is prepared to put billions into an illegal
war and occupation of Iraq was prepared to ignore all the warning signs
leading to the Katrina disaster and pay precious little attention to the
recovery. We must take the lead and call a national day where we with-
draw our services and funds in protest over what has been taking place.
There is no better way to make a political point than through our oppo-
nent's pocket book.
In having a president who completely ignores the will of the people,
including the views of some of his most trusted allies and advisors, we
are dealing with a situation of arrogance bordering on tyranny. In such
situations pretending as if conditions are normal is absurd. If the presi-
dent cannot hear our concerns, then we must shake things up in such a
way that even he can not longer ignore them.

Documents Belonging to Harry

T. Moore Returned to Daughter


ORLANDO, Fla. A briefcase
stuffed with letters, notes and news-
paper clippings belonging to slain
civil rights leader Harry T. Moore
was found in an old vacant barn not
far from where he was killed in a
house bombing, officials said.
Workers for the Brevard County
Historical Commission stumbled
across the briefcase as they pre-
pared to move the barn to make
way for a planned subdivision.
The documents discovered in
November were turned over to the
state attorney general's office to
determine their significance. None
was found, so they were given to
Moore's 76-year-old daughter,
Evangeline Moore.
Moore and his wife, Harriette
Moore, died in 1951 in a bombing
at their home in Mims on Christmas
Day. He was the first NAACP offi-
cial killed during the modern civil
rights struggle, but it took years for
investigators to determine that four
now-dead Ku Klux Klan members
were responsible.
Evangeline Moore was 21 when
her parents were killed. She said
she suffered memory loss due to the
trauma of the bombing and has
been unable to remember her child-
hood and parts of her early adult-
hood.
"I have looked through some of
the copies of this material and in
fact it has given me my life story,"
said Moore, who said she found

mother, Harriette, with her father

several newspaper photos and arti-
cles about her own involvement in
the civil rights movement.
Other documents include letters
written to political candidates seek-
ing their positions on voting rights
and other racial issues at the time,
as well as affidavits and research
about lynchings in the area.
No investigation is planned to
determine who may have hidden
the documents in the barn, located
about 900 yards from the Moores'
house, said Allison Bethel, head of
the state attorney general's civil
rights division.

When Barbara Richardson
marched down the aisle at the
Friday Musicale, she finally got the
opportunity to do what she couldn't
do fifty years ago. At the age of 16
years old, the law said she was too
young to get married. In addition to
being too young, they also didn't
have the funds available for the
grand style wedding she envi-
sioned. Fifty years and two careers
in the education and transportation
arena's later, B.J. and barbara
Richardson fulfilled their lifetime
wish.
Family and friends joined the
Richardson's Saturday, February
3rd, as they celebrated their Golden
Wedding Anniversary with a
Renewal of Vows, officiated by Dr.
William Lavant Jr., Senior Pastor of
Bethel Baptist Sweetwater; and a
reception dinner.
B. J. and Barbara Richardson
were married February 1, 1957 in
Jacksonville, Florida. The bride is
the former Barbara Baldwin.
The bride was escorted by her


$ "' *-- ..d..

brother, Mr. Samuel Baldwin Jr. of
Palatka, Florida. He also served the
groom as his best man. The groom's
nephew, Mr. Raymond Richardson
of Jacksonville also served as best
man. The bride's aunt, Mrs. Minnie
B. Long, of Jacksonville, served as
her matron of honor and the bride's
sister-in-law, Mrs. Lorraine
"Punch" Baldwin, of Palatka, also
served as matron of honor. The
bride and groom's grand niece,
Miss Jessica Andres, was the junior
bridesmaid, and their godson,
Master Leroy Pate Jr. was the junior
groomsman. The bride and groom's
great-nephew, Master James
Bagley II, served as ring barer, and
their great-nieces, Miss Jeyanna
Andres and Miss Jamie Bagley
served as the flower girls.


A beautiful rendition of "Because
You Love Me" was rendered by
Vocalist Cheryl Harris and "When
I Fall In Love" was rendered by
Voacalist Brenda Bagley, during the
Processional. Music was performed
by Mr. Tim Dixon.
The Hostesses were: Ms.
Brittany Bowers, Ms. Andrea
Harris, and Ms. Melody Harris. The
Ushers were: Mr. Kenneth Andres,
Mr. Michael Andres II, Mr. Sean
Andrews, and Mr. Andre George.
The bride, a retired Duval County
teacher, graduated from Edward
Waters College and Florida A&M
University. The groom retired from
Jacksonville Transportation
Management after 17 years of dedi-
cated service.
Family and the many friends the


Richardsons have acquired through.
the years traveled from as far away
as Philadelphia, South Carolina,
Dublin, Georgia; Miami and
Marianna, Palatka and Fernandina,:
Florida to share in the blessings of
this special day.
"I couldn't even cook in those
early days," recalls Richardson.
"Matter of fact, my mother even
made our first meal." she said.
These days Mrs. Richardson has a
host of god-children she frequently
cooks for in between teaching'
ceramics while her husband enter-,
tains himself with a part-time job.
The celebration isn't over yet for
the two retirees who are still open-
ing the mountain of wedding gifts-
received. Next up for the
Richardsons' the Honeymoon!

African Heritage (300-1619)
Back in this era, most African
men were farmers, cattle raisers and
fisherman. Planting, sowing and
harvesting crops were considered
women's work. Cooking was one of
the most important skills a young
girl needed to learn. One traditional
dish called fufu was made of pound-
ed yams. Fufu was served with
soup, stew, roasted meat and differ-
ent sauces. During this time in his-
tory, cooking was done over open
pits. Africans were very skilled in
roasting, frying, stewing, boiling
and steaming their foods. Their
native foods were yams, okra,
watermelon, cassava, groundnuts,
black-eyed peas and rice.
Indentured Servants and Slavery
In August, 1619, the first group of


Africans landed in America at
Jamestown, Virginia. These
Africans were indentured servants.
They gave up four to seven years of
labor just to pay for transportation
to America. Southern plantations
consisted of Africans from many
different tribal nations. These
Africans made up the slave popula-
tion in southern America. Verbal
exchanges of recipes on these
Southern plantations led to the
development of an international
African cooking style in America.
The slaves enjoyed cooking pork,
yams, sweet potatoes, hominy, corn,
ashcakes, cabbage, hoecakes, col-
lards and cowpeas. On these planta-
tions, cooking was done on an open
fireplace with large swing blackpots
and big skillets.


taught them how to hunt and cook
with native plants. Indian cooking
techniques were later introduced
into the southern society by black
American cooks. Dishes such as
corn pudding, succotash, pumpkin
pie, Brunswick Stew and hominy
grits are a few examples of Native
American dishes found in African
American cooking.
American Revolution 1776
Between 1773 and 1785 thou-
sands of Africans were brought to
America. They were brought ashore
in Virginia, Georgia and the
Carolinas (Sea Island). In America,
slaves were cooks, servants and gar-
deners. They worked in the colonial
kitchens and on the plantations as
field hands. At the Big House,
slaves cooked such foods as greens,
succotash, corn pudding, spoon


Reconstruction 1865
Both the northern and the south-
ern armies hired black Americans as
cooks. Most of the cooking
throughout the South was done by
black cooks. Slaves created their
own recipes and made the best of
hard times and scarce supplies.
Cajun and Creole cooking devel-
oped during this period. These
foods included jambalaya, bread
pudding, dirty rice, gumbo and red
beans and rice. Cooking was done
on a great big old fireplace with
swing pots and skillets with legs.
Post Reconstruction
Westward Movement 1865
At the end of the Civil War, black
Americans began to move west-
ward. They migrated to Kansas,
Nebraska, Oklahoma and Texas.
Black Americans became cowboys


with primitive tools and very limit-
ed ingredients. They cooked such
foods as: biscuits, stew, baked beans
and barbecued meat.
The Great Migration 1900-1945
During this period, a large num-
ber of black Americans worked as
cooks in private homes, shops
restaurants, schools, hotels and col-
leges. Many moved to such large
cities as Chicago, New York, Ohio,
Detroit and Pennsylvania to work.
Black cooks, chefs and waiters also
worked in Pullman cars of the old
railroads and on the steamboats.
Many black Americans also started
small businesses such as fish mar-
kets, barbeque and soul food restau-
rants throughout the United States.
These establishments specialized in
fried fish, homemade rolls, potato
salad, turkey and dressing, fried

food, the traditional food of black
Americans, was very popular. Soul
foods were candied yams, okra,
fried chicken, pig's feet, chitlin's,
cornbread, collard greens with ham
hocks and black-eyed peas. Today
in the 90s, soul food preparation has
changed. Black Americans are
becoming increasingly health con-
scious, thus, they are avoiding foods
with high levels of fat and choles-
terol, and increasing their intake of
fruit, vegetables and fiber. Black
Americans are still in the kitchen
cooking, but now they are owners
and managers of restaurants. Today
cooking is done on electric, gas and
microwave stoves.
The delectable tastes of 'soul
food' remain popular as restaurants
continue to pop up around the coun-
try from 'mom and pop' to five star.

medium heat until onion is transparent; add
to meat. Pour over additional butter if nec-
essary. Melt the remaining 2 tablespoons of
butter in skillet, blend in the 2 tablespoons

side, approximately 5 to 10 minutes.
Remove chops from pan to a warm, paper
towel-covered platter. Remove all but 1/4

degrees F. uncovered for about 45 minutes.
(8 generous servings)

3 teaspoons seasoned salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon paprika
3/4 teaspoon onion powder
1 1/4 teaspoons sugar

Bread Pudding
Years ago, people could not afford to
throw anything away. If they had a lot of
leftover old bread (the bread that was made
with flour, not cornmeal), they would crum-

The sports world will no doubt
remember this year's Superbowl as
a tribute to Black history. Merely
by stepping on the field, coaches
Tony Dungy and Lovie Smith made
cultural history.
A few hours later, one of them
won the Super Bowl, too.
Long saddled with a reputation as
a coach who couldn't win the big
one, Dungy shook that label when
his Indianapolis Colts beat the
Chicago Bears 29-17.
The biggest win of Dungy's career
came against his close friend and
protege, Bears coach Lovie Smith.
They were the first black head
coaches in the 41-year history of
the Super Bowl.
When the game ended, the 51-
year-old Dungy was hoisted onto
the shoulders of his team.
"It means probably more to him
than it does to any of us," defensive
end Dwight Freeney said. "He has
waited a long time. He has
deserved this."
As his team celebrated, Dungy
switched his Colts cap for one that
read "NFL champions" and walked
to midfield, where he and Smith
exchanged words and a hug.
"I just told Lovie how proud I was
of this whole moment," Dungy
said. "I really appreciate what he
has done in Chicago -- the way he
does it, the type of person he is.
They're going to get their champi-
onship soon."
Their relationship dates to 1996,
when Dungy hired Smith to coach
linebackers for the Tampa Bay
Buccaneers. They were a page-one
story throughout Super Bowl week,
discussing daily the laid-back per-
sonalities and Christian faith they
share, as well as their groundbreak-
ing success.
"I'm proud to be the first African-
American coach to win this,"
Dungy said during the trophy cere-
mony. "But again, more than any-
thing, Lovie Smith and I are not
only African-American but also
Christian coaches, showing you
can do it the Lord's way. We're
more proud of that."
"We're proud to have won this for
our leader, Coach Dungy," MVP
quarterback Peyton Manning said.
The Colts had been perennial
title contenders since Dungy
became coach in 2002, but fell
short each year. Before that, he had
four winning seasons in Tampa Bay
but failed to reach the title game.
"The Lord doesn't always take you
in a straight line," Dungy said. "He
tests you sometimes."
Dungy joined Mike Ditka and
Tom Flores as the only men to win
Super Bowl titles as both players
and coaches. Dungy, a former
University of Minnesota quarter-
back, was a backup safety for the
championship Pittsburgh Steelers.
It was the Colts' first SuperBowl
win in 36 years.

African-American Women Can Help


Find the Causes of Breast Cancer


The Sister Study Needs 18,000 More Women for Cancer Research


Silence is Death, a report on the
crisis of HIV/AIDS in Florida,
was released last summer by The
Florida Bureau of HIV/AIDS. The
startling revealing statistics was
enough to rattle not only a city -
but a state. As a a result, the
Minority AIDS Coalition in con-
junction with other agencies host-
ed a forum where local experts
proposed methods for effectively
getting the message of prevention
out. The results of that meeting are
in and a Community Mobilization
Forum will be held on February
16th at The Holiday Inn, 6802
Commonwealth Ave. from 9:00
AIDS in Jacksonville
- Among black males, the HIV
case rate is 7 times higher than
among white males.
- 1 in 88 Blacks are living with
AIDS in Duval county.
Duval County ranks #1 for
African Americans with AIDS in
the state of Florida.


Lyn May, Host, PBS Act
Two with Newsday is one of
thousands of women across
the nation who has joined
the Sister Study to help
researchers explore how the
environment and genes
affect the chances of getting
breast cancer. The Sister
Study has successfully
recruited more than 32,000
women whose sisters were
diagnosed with breast can-
cer, of which fewer than
1,500 are African American.
Conducted by the National
Institute of Environmental
Health Sciences study has a
goal to recruit 50,000
diverse women by then end
of 2007.
Without black women,
researchers will have a hard
time learning why breast
cancer occurrence and sur-
vival are different for black
women, who often develop
the disease at a younger age
and have more aggressive
tumors, than white women.
Even though white women
are more likely to get the
disease, black women are
more likely to die from
breast cancer. This year,
approximately 19,240 black
women will be diagnosed
with breast cancer.
May is participating in the


Patricia Russel McCloud
a.m. to 4:30 p.m. to tell the com-
munity what must be done.
Among the speakers will be noted
author and motivational speaker,
Patricia Russell-McCloud.
Seating for this free event is lim-

Sister Study in celebration of her
sister Carol, a 16-year breast cancer
survivor. "I'm delighted to help the
Sister Study educate older women
and African-American women
about the causes of breast cancer,"
said 65-year-old May. "I have
daughters, granddaughters, step-
daughters and nieces. I'm partici-
pating in this important study for
them, and for all women of color."
Many women have heard about
the Sister Study, but they haven't
signed up yet, and we really need
them now," said Dale Sandler,
Ph.D., Chief of the Epidemiology
Branch at NIEHS and Principal
Investigator of the Sister Study.
"Doctors know very little about
how the environment may affect
breast cancer, that is why the Sister
Study is so important."
Available in English and Spanish,
the Sister Study requires very little
time from its volunteers. The 10-
year observational study begins
with participants answering ques-
tions about diet, jobs, hobbies, and
things they've been exposed to
throughout their lives to determine
what may influence breast cancer
risk. Later, at a convenient time and
location for the participant, a
female health technician collects
small samples of blood, urine, toe-
nail clippings, and house dust,
which will also help give
researchers a better picture of the
woman's environment and genes.


Women in the U.S. and Puerto
Rico, ages 35 to 74, may be eligible
to join the Sister Study if their sis-
ters (living or deceased) had breast
cancer. Women who join the Sister
Study must never have been diag-
nosed with breast cancer them-
selves. Breast cancer affects women
from every walk of life, so the
Sister Study is seeking women of
all backgrounds, occupations, ages,
and ethnic groups.
"If you're a woman of color
whose sister had breast cancer, your
participation in the Sister Study is
especially important," continued
Dr. Sandler. "We want to learn more
about how to protect your daughters
and your granddaughters from this
devastating disease."
Organizations that are in partner-
ship with the Sister Study include
the American Cancer Society,
Sisters Network Inc., Susan G.
Komen for a Cure, and the
Intercultural Cancer Council. In
addition to working with its nation-
al partners, the Sister Study works
with sororities, churches, labor and
professional organizations, civic
groups and other local and national
organizations to inform diverse
women about the study.
To volunteer or learn more about
the Sister Study, visit the web site
www.sisterstudy.org, or for Spanish
visit www.estudiodehermanas.org.

JUDGE LYNN TOLER

Court Queen Dishes Out Mom's Rdules'


by Kenya Yarborough, EUR
After a mere five months on the
bench as the judge on TV's
"Divorce Court," Judge Lynn Toler
is holding it down, personalizing
the show to her style and dishing
out justice with heart for cheating
hearts and broken hearts.
Still the new kid in the TV court
drama genre, Toler said that she
already feels accepted and she is
having a great time doing the show.
With the support of the viewers,
Toler has pretty effortlessly slid
into the role as the ruler on the
series.
"The show is going very, very
well. I'd been very concerned
because I was taking over from
someone who was so popular, but
I've been very well received.
People have been very kind and
supportive. I'm starting to get rec-
ogni zed
around the
country and
that's a little
interesting, a
little differ-
ent," she
said. W
And before
becoming the
diva of
divorce,
Toler had an
illustrious
career as a
municipal
court judge in
Cleveland,
and is still
exhibiting the
wisdom that
would make any mother proud.
For Toler, that pride goes both
ways. She has written a book called
"My Mother's Rules" based on the
wisdom of her mother and because
of the pride she has for her. The
book focuses on Toler's upbringing
in a household with a bi-polar
father and a very determined moth-
er and shares morsels of wisdom
and understanding that Toler says
her mother instilled in her. It.has
been heralded by critics and readers
as an "amazingly honest" book of
life lessons.
"In all my objectivity, I think my
mother is an emotional genius," she
said of the book's inspiration. "The
book is about her and my family
and her abilities to be so rational
when most people cannot find that
ability and how important [that is].
Everybody's worried about what
your IQ is and not your EQ your
emotional quotient. How you're
able to handle your emotions and
deal with other people's emotions


changes the whole dynamic of
everything; what you do and how
you feel."
Toler explained that her mother
never really established "rules" for
living and that it was she who
decided to set up her mother's
rational as rules. But she says these
are certainly rules that she has
obeyed in her life and in her career.
"Controlling your emotionality is
often the difference between doing
the right thing and doing the wrong
thing. I saw that in court a lot; real-
ly rational regular people doing the
wrong thing because they did not
keep the 800-pound gorilla in their
sights," she said.
She continued that the unique
way her mother understood another
person's feelings is just how she
approaches everyone who enters
her courtroom.
"My mother
was extraordi-
nary at under-
standing the
emotional side
of not only
what she was
0 feeling, but
what other
, people were
feeling," she
continued.
While being
a wise mother
may not seem
like a new or
extraordinary
feat, Toler
a explained that
it is unsung
heroes like
good parents who need to be hon-
ored, awarded, and singled out. In
coming up with the idea for the
book, Toler even said she had to
convince her mother that it was a
good idea.
"At first, [my mother] said, 'Oh
Lynn get a job. This is the silliest
thing. What I did wasn't that
tremendous.' But I said, 'It's not
just about the world leaders. It's
about the people that get you up
and out of.the house. I think your
average mother and father out there
are to be honored," Toler said.
"When I went on the bench, I saw
that the emotional lessons that she
taught me about dealing with peo-
ple were of assistance to the people
on the bench about convincing peo-
ple of things," Toler said. "You
don't ever go to people from where
you are; you start where they are
and explain to them how they feel -
that you know how they feel and
why they feel that way then you
walk them home slowly. "

At my family table, I learn more than where
to place the knives, forks and spoons. I also
get a lesson in foods rich not only in flavor,
but also my history. Like the Cranberry Bean
Mom uses in her family's famous bean soup.
I found out her secret ingredient traveled
further than our neighborhood store.
It's been enjoyed in Africa since 1493.
Nana was right; this kind of knowledge
does feed your spirit.
