"Those who have no
record of what their fore-
bears have accomplished
lose the inspiration which
comes from the teaching of
biography and history." So
said Dr. Carter G. Woodson,
the scholar and historian
who is called "The Father of
Black History." He founded
Negro History Week in 1926
to help give this record and
inspiration to other Black
Americans. At the time Dr.
Woodson was alarmed
because so few people,
White or Black, knew any-
thing at all about Black his-
tory and Black people's
achievements. He would
even meet other Black col-
lege history professors who
had no idea Blacks had made
any significant contributions
to national or world history.
Dr. Woodson understood just
how critical it was to claim
our rightful place in the his-
tory books, and so the
national celebration of Black
history was born.
As times changed, Negro
History Week became Black
History Week, and 30 years
ago, it officially became
Black History Month. But
throughout the years the cel-
ebration's symbolism and
important message has
always remained the same.
This year, Black History
Month falls at a time when

in October and Coretta Scott

many people felt they had
witnessed the end of an era.
Parks and. King were indeed
two of the towering figures
in Black American history
and I hope all of our children
now know exactly who they
were and what they stood
for. Who else should we be
sure to teach our children
about to inspire them?
They should know about
our earliest heroes like
Phillis Wheatley and
Benjamin Banneker, and
freedom fighters like
Frederick Douglass, Harriet
Tubman, Sojourner Truth,
and so many others who
were born in slavery but
never gave up in their pas-
sion to be free. They should
know about the next genera-
tion of brilliant Black leaders
and thinkers like W.E.B.
DuBois, Booker T.
Washington, and Ida B.
Wells-Barnett and about pio-
neering inventors and educa-
tors like George Washington

they should applaud our still,

Dorothy Height, scholars
like John Hope Franklin, and
cultural leaders like Harry
Belafonte, Ruby Dee, and

great Black Americans goes

they may have been consid-

Prayer Breakfast Chairperson
(UMNS) -- The Rev.
Emmanuel Cleaver II, U.S.
which includes Kansas City,
will co-chair the 2007
National Prayer Breakfast. A
Cleaver has served since his
election in 2004 as secretary
of the House's weekly
prayer meetings. "It is a
great honor to be asked to
chair this amazing event,"
he said. "Though I am a
Methodist minister, my sin-
cere hope is to make it inclu-
sive and exciting to ,all

language, and I \\ill do
everything I can to make .it
an event that brings people

Church Fires Suggest
Hostility To Religion
Agency Exec Says
SNEW YORK -- Recent
church burnings in Alabama
are "a grim reminder of the
value and the fragile nature
of religious liberty in the.
United States," according to
the Rev. R. Randy Day,
chief executive, United
Methodist Board of Global
Ministries. In a statement
condemning the fires, he
noted the malice behind the
acts shows "the need' for
healing and reconciliation in
the broken lives of the
arsonists and in some parts
of American society "
Although the fires remain
under investigation, "the
manner of the arsons sug-
gests deep hostility to reli-
"Reports indicate that in
many of the nine cases, fires
were started in the area of
the pulpit and communion
table," Day said. "Little
could be more offensive to
Christian people than
attacks on proclamation and
sacraments. We are further
distressed that many church-
es are burned each year, for
a total of 1,000 from 1996 to
2000, according to the
Christian Science Monitor.
This is a scandalous record,
one that calls for greater
public awareness and
greater vigilance on the part
of law enforcement. The
members of all religious
groups and communities
deserve the right to go to
sleep at night without fear
that their houses of worship
will be destroyed in the

Identity Theft Knows No Boundaries; All Affected
But Crime, And Response Varies By Ethnicity
COLUMBUS, Ohio, Feb. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- A new
identify theft survey, one of the first to examine how the
crime affects both African Americans and Hispanics, con-
firms that no minority group in the U.S. is safe and that all
struggle equally to recover when their identity is stolen. The
consumer poll, released today by Nationwide Mutual
Insurance Company, uncovered unique differences in how
the crime impacts the daily lives of different'populations.
In a crime where time is of the essence to prevent further
loss of assets, the survey shows it took minorities on average
one and a half months longer than the general population to
discover they were a victim.
"Educating the entire population is key to early detection
and ultimately prevention of the crime in the first place,"
said Kirk Herath, chief privacy officer and associate general
counsel for Nationwide. "In addition, providing support in
the identity recovery phase can speed response time, protect
assets and preserve an individual's integrity."
The survey results show African-American and Hispanic
victims were more likely than victims from the random sam-
ple to have the crime target their checking or savings
There also were other slight differences. African-
American victims spent an average of 54 hours trying to
resolve their case.
Hispanic victims average 42 hours and victims from the
random sample average 53 hours. Thieves racked up an
average of $2,914 in charges using an African-American vic-
tim's identity and $2,406 using a Hispanic victim's identity.
The general population averaged $3,240 in fraudulent
"While there are interesting differences among the vari-
ous ethnicities, the survey shows identity theft is a crime
with the potential to impact anyone," Herath said.
It takes minorities just as long as other victims to restore
their identity..One in four African-American and Hispanic
financial identity theft victims have not been able to restore
their identities despite averaging nearly a year trying,
according to the new survey.
These findings mirror a survey of the general population
conducted by Nationwide last July. The new survey also
shows 95 percent of all victims regardless of ethnic back-
ground say they were frustrated or had difficulty trying to
restore their identity.
The survey also provides a statistical snapshot of identi-
ty theft victims. According to the survey, the most common
African-American victim is a 38-year- old woman who is a
college graduate or has some college education.
The most common Hispanic victim is a 36-year-old mar-
ried woman and a college graduate. The most common gen-
eral population victim is a 46-year-old white male, who is
married and a college graduate or has some college educa-
tion. Victims in each group had an average household
income between $50,000 and $75,000.
The survey of 600 adult identity theft victims, from 11
selected U.S. markets was conducted in December using
MarketTool's ZoomPanel, an online consumer panel.
Thesurvey targeted 200 African-American victims, 200
Hispanic victims and 200 victims from a random sample
representative of the U.S. population in total and across age,
ethnic and geographic segments. The survey has a margin of
error of plus or minus 5 percentage points.
Sound Of Your Voice May Lead To Racial Discrimination
when a voice sounds
discrimination may follow.
John Baugh, Ph.D., the
inventor of the term "lin-
guistic- profiling," says that
when a voice on the phone
sounds African-American or
discrimination might follow.

enon through hundreds of
test phone calls, John

director of African and

St. Louis, has found that
many people made racist,
snap judgments about
callers with diverse dialects.
Some potential employ-

they could evaluate callers'

callers based solely on lin-

Sisterhood is Health)' Campaign Helps
African American Women Improve Their Health.
NEW YORK-- Two-thirds of all deaths in the United
States can be attributed to these four serious diseases: cancer;
diabetes, heart 'disease and stroke, and African American
women are at particularly high risk. That's why The'
Advertising Council, along with the American Cancer
Society, American Diabetes Association and American Heart
Association, has developed the second phase of a three-year
public health campaign to increase awareness of the impact
that lifestyle choices have on these four diseases. A televi-
sion public service advertisement (PSA), "Bus Stop," will air
nationally beginning in February and will run throughout the
year, targeting the African American community.
Focus group research conducted by the three organiza-
tions in conjunction with The Advertising Council reveal
that African American women are aware of the importance
of eating healthfully and staying active, yet many lack the
continued motivation to maintain healthy lifestyle habits.
"Our goal is to empower African American women, particu-
larly those ages 35-50, to make healthy everyday choices to
help reduce their risk of developing these diseases, and to
encourage them to help their family and friends make these
changes, as well," says Gena R. Carter, MD, a director on the
American Cancer Society's national board of directors and a
staff radiologist at South Shore Breast Evaluation Center,
Scituate, Mass. The PSA tagline, "Sisterhood is Healthy,"
urges women to encourage and support their friends to eat
healthfully and get active.
Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum
Legends and History
SPRINGFIELD, Ill.-- During Black History Month and
beyond, families, schools and individuals can enjoy the per-
feet opportunity to add a meaningful educational component
to their next trip by visiting the Abraham Lincoln
Presidential Museum in Springfield, Illinois. The museum
pays tribute to the author of the Emancipation Proclamation, .
and also revisits the harsh reality of slavery in America while
celebrating African-American freedom fighters.
The museum is the ideal travel option for the growing
number of Americans who enjoy cultural travel. According
to the Travel Industry Association of America (TIA), an esti-
mated 75 percent of travelers -- or 109.8 million Americans
-- participate in some sort of cultural activity as part of their
vacation experience. TIA also notes that cultural events and
activities are a primary facet of most African-American trav-
el itineraries. Groups interested in specialized museum tours
can call (800) 610-2094 or visit http://www.alplm.org .

The Budget Request
By Congresswoman Corrine Brown:
As an African American woman who represents one of
the poorest districts in the state of Florida, I see this budg-
et request as an outright callous and insufficient response
to the needs of my constituents, and to the majority of our
Clearly, a budget blueprint is about priorities, and a
budget request directs money into areas that the President
and his advisors'see as worthy of government resources,
while cutting or deleting funding from areas perceived as .
less important. And this year's budget request, similar to
those in the past five years, is a budget plan which not '
only is driving our nation into terrible deficit, but exces-
sively cuts badly needed social programs.'So once again,
the administration is asking our seniors, our students, our
children, and the working poor, to make fiscal sacrifices, while those in the upper
income brackets and powerful special interest groups emerge unscathed. Reminiscent
of Reaganomics of the 1980s, we are seeing increased deficits, more debt, while the
majority of Americans have less economic security and savings.
In a budget worth $2.77 trillion, the administration's severe cuts in 141 programs
(many of them social services for the poor), are simply incomprehensible: $36 billion
in spending cuts in Medicare over the next five years, billions of dollars in food stamp
program cuts, decreased spending for local law enforcement agencies and disease con-
trol programs, cuts in child support enforcement payments, decreased funding for state
Medicaid, less spending for the State Children's Health Insurance Program, by $5 bil-
lion over the first five years and by $12 billion over ten, a 9.4% decrease for DOT, 3.8%
for education, and a continuation of cuts in veterans healthcare.
And once again, the administration plans to do all of this while simultaneously
extending nearly all of the upper income tax cuts beyond the 2010 extension date of
What is perhaps even more ironic is that this draconian slew of tax cuts, tax incen-
tives and tax cut extensions, that would cost the Treasury $1.7 trillion over the next
decade, would actually increase spending by $551 billion in the end, not decrease our
deficit, as the President claims!
The only thing to be done with this outright appalling budget is to send it back to the
drawing board. When this budget makes its way through Congress, I sincerely hope
that even the Republican, lawmakers will see its outrageous shortcomings, and we, the
lawmaking and-appropriating body, will redesign a budget that more equitably distrib-
utes our nation's resources."

Disappointment In Administration's
Dismal Respond to Hurricane Katrina
From left to right are:,Rep. Hilda Solis (CA), Rep. Dianne Watson (CA), Rep. Corrine
Brown, Rep. Barbara Lee (CA), and Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (TX):
(Washington,;DC) With respect to the House Select Committee Report on Hurricane
Katrina, Congresswoman Corrine Brown made the following statement:
."I would like to begin with a quote.from Coretta Scott King: 'Struggle is a never
ending process. Freedom is never really won. You earn it and win it in every genera-
My colleagues and I in the. Congressional Black Caucus, the Hispanic Caucus, and
the Asian Caucus, were utterly, disappointed upon reading the' report, "A Failure of
Initiative," which was released by the House Select Committee on Katrina, and' criti-
cizes the poor preparation and response to the hurricane.
We all know that the slow response to Hurricane Katrina led to the massive destruc-
tion of the Gulf Coast region, particularly New Orleans.
The numerous warnings, inadequate planning and apathy in preparing the region for
the scope of Hurricane Katrina's massive devastation are some of the points made in
the Committee's report.
Unfortunately, the government's botched response has ruined the lives of millions of
Americans, who are now forced to go without the most basic human needs. In the
report, The Select Committee identified failures at all levels of government which led
to the destruction of the region. Some of these failings include:
(1) The failure of a complete evacuation of New Orleans;
(2) Levees protecting New Orleans were not built for the most severe hurricanes,
leading to a breach in the system;
(3) The collapse of local law enforcement and lack of effective public communica-
tions led to civil unrest and further delayed relief.
These are just a few of the problems which reveal that the government was not ade-
quately prepared for a disaster of this' proportion. The question that I ask now i,s
whether the government is prepared TODAY for a disaster of any proportion, man-
made or natural.
There is no question the Bush Administration failed in its response to Hurricane
Katrina. The sad thing is that it continues to fail the victims of the storm still today.
Along with my colleagues in the Congressional Black Caucus, we are urging the
Bush Administration to support our hurricane relief bill, HR 4197, a bill that if passed
into law, would be a great first step towards the recovery and restoration of the Gulf
C-ast region." ,

Congresswoman Corrine Brown Attends Liberian Inauguration

Congresswoman Corrine Brown (right) attended the inauguration of Mrs. Ellen
Johnson Sirleaf (left), the first elected female president in the entire African continent.
On January 16th, Congresswoman Corrine Brown
attended the -inauguration of newly elected Liberian
President, Ms, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, the first elected female
president in the entire African continent. Congresswoman
Brown received a personal invitation from Ms. Johnson-
Sirleaf, and went to Africa as the representative of the
Congressional Black Caucus.
Ms. Johnson Sirleaf was inaugurated into the Executive
Mansion of Liberia's presidency, where numerous African
dignitaries and Heads of State were in attendance, as well as
First Lady, Laura Bush, and Secretary of State, Condoleezza
The Congresswoman attended the inauguration ceremo-
ny and the reception which followed, giving her a chance to

Upon arrival, Congresswoman Brown was greeted with
a grand reception by the U.S. Ambassador to Liberia, Donald
E. Booth, and escorted by the United States' African'
Regional Navy Commander. She was also given a beautiful
quilt depicting an African village, which was put together by
a group of African women.
Moreover, the Congresswoman met with Dr. James
Graham, ofMt. Pleasant Baptist Church (Washington, D.C.),
Troy Cromwell, and Dr. Lincoln Brownell, of the Liberian
Baptist Theological Seminary, to discuss their church's par-
ticipation in textbook donations to schools throughout
Liberia. To date, they ha\ e donated o\ er 250,000 textbooks,
and are hoping to find other community partners to donate
Congresswoman Brown has been intrinsically involved
in African affairs and in promoting greater U.S. --Africa
relations since being elected to Congress in 1993. Liberia's
incoming president contacted Congresswoman Brown per-
sonally in fact when they met together in Washington last
December and spoke numerous times by phone.
Congresswoman Brown was a c hie f sponsor and promoter of
the African Growth and Opportunity Act, which has spurred
economic interaction and increased trade between the
African continent and The United States.

FOR MORE INFORMATION:
The Congresswoman has also traveled frequently to
Africa, and just last May served as an elections observer dur-
ing the Togolese elections.
Congresswoman Brown has also worked on behalf of
Liberian political refugees domestically, and in conjunction
with Rep. Patrick Kennedy, has fought year after year to con-
vince the Department of State to allow the thousands of
Liberian refugees currently in the United States to be grant-
ed permanent residency.
Ms. Johnson-Sirleaf's rise to the Presidency was a diffi-
cult one. During the 1980s she was imprisoned for question-
ing the regime of Samuel Doe.
Later, she supported Charles Taylor's rebellion until she
split with Taylor and later found herself charged with treason
after he became president. She twice went into exile.
Then, in 1997, she finished in second to Mr Taylor in the
presidential elections. "To me, Ms Johnson-Sirleafs nick-
name, the iron lady, really says it all, it captures the essence
of her determination, perseverance, and drive. Certainly, it
would have been much easier for her to have left politics
years ago, yet she never gave up. Moreover, her experience
in international finance, dating back from her position as
Minister of Finance in the 1970s, to Africa director at the
United Nations. Development Programme, will help her to
serve as a tremendous attribute towards the future of the
rebuilding of Liberia's shattered economy. I was more than
'honored to be able to attend this event, and I hope to work
with Ms. Johnson-Sirleaf in the future to build bridges with
the Untied States, assist the country to improve its infrastruc-
ture, and better the lives of the Liberian people," said
Congresswoman Corrine Brown.

If a relationship is doing well and things are fine with- '
out marriage, why do women complain? I've been with my
girlfriend for 9 years and sometimes she rants about being :. "-
legal and having a piece of paper justify our relationship. I '; '
feel it won't make any difference because we have love and '
neither one of us is going anywhere. ..
Ronnie (Beaumont, TX) ,
So you want to sacrifice salvation for physical comfort? True, your courtship lasted
longer than most marriages. If you love the relationship you should do the right thing
and not fornicate by living the shacking lifestyle. Marriage will change things because
you'll have the true blessing of God over your relationship as well as many marriage
perks and benefits. After 9 years, quit playing and do the right thing.
I'm in prison and have been here for over 10 years. My children were babies when
I left and my wife always throws it in my face that I never did anything for them. No
I haven't, paid child support or provided material things, but I can share wisdom. Now
they've gone astray and she's blaming it on me. I feel I can help if she would only bring
them to see me.
Anonymous (Soledad Prison, CA)
Child support and material things don't raise children. Love, support, and wisdom
along with discipline' and faith lead children in the right way. She should be bringing
those kids to visit you every chance she gets. A child seeing their father in prison is the
ultimate tool to help them do right and stay out of trouble. When they visit, help them
by keeping it real about the consequences of your misdeed that landed you in prison
and took your life, your dreams and your family.
I spent so much time raising my kids that I lost myself in my marriage. Next thing
you know, my husband files for divorce, takes the house, the money and the kids. Now
he's taking me to court for child support and I don't think its right. I don't know what
to do as a housewife with no education.
Jeanie (Paoli, PA)
If you had custody of those kids you would've beat the court doors off the hinges
trying to get some money. Regardless of gender absent parents should pay child sup-
port. Like being homeless, divorce is not an overnight thing and you should've seen it
coming. You knew what you were working with. Like they tell men, stop whining, get
a job and handle your business even if you have to flip a few burgers.

Problem of feral cats affects everyone, homes and health
You've probably seen them, most likely at night. There may even be some living
near your house or behind your local grocery store. The presence of feral cats is a
problem affecting everyone, including the cats.
Dr. Margaret Slater, a veterinarian in the College of Veterinary Medicine and
Biomedical Sciences at Texas A&M University, has been passionate about feral cats
for many years. She has been involved with Aggie Feral Cat Alliance of Texas, a vol-
unteer group devoted to controlling the feral cat population on campus, since it start-
ed seven years ago. "A feral cat is a cat that is too unsocialized or afraid of people to
be placed in a typical pet home," Slater said. "Their sociability is not only influenced
by where they live, but it can change quite a lot. With great patience and time, a cat
can go from being feral for the first three years of his life to being a perfectly friend-
ly lap cat."
The amount of feral cats in an area depends on food, shelter and environment,
Slater said. "We tend to see larger numbers of feral cats in the South because they
don't have to deal with the winter," she notes. "A cat in the South can produce as
many as three litters of kittens a year if there is enough food."
Both animal lovers and non-animal lovers are affected by the overpopulation of
feral cats. "One thing people don't realize is this is a community problem," Slater
says. "The biggest thing people can do to help is to make sure their own cats have
identification (collar, microchip or tattoo) and to spay or neuter their pets," Slater
said. "Another way people can help is to work with shelters to help get these cats
Most people's reaction when they see a stray cat is to feed them, says Slater. "By
feeding a feral cat that is not spayed or neutered, he or she will be able to make more
kittens in your area. What we are trying to do is turn off the source and get these cats
If you're feeding a cat and want to get it- neutered, be careful because feral cats
can be aggressive when scared, says Slater. "In this part of the country we have con-
cerns about rabies. The most important thing is not to corer a cat and get yourself
Once a feral cat is neutered or spayed, Slater recommends that the cat should be
identified. "The universal symbol of a neutered feral cat is an ear tip," she says. Not
only does a neutered cat help control the population, the cat's health usually
improves, she adds.
AFCAT has succeeded in controlling the feral cat population on campus in the last
seven years through the trap, neuter and return process. "We have about 15 to 20
feeding stations and Nestle Purina donates the food," Slater said. This program not
only benefits the cats on campus but the students as well. "All of the health care is
done by senior veterinary students with help from faculty members, so it is both a
university program and a teaching program," Slater said.
There are lots of cats out there that need our help and in some cases, a home.

The team has been playing in Hoop It Up events since 1995 and has traveled all over Florida (Miami, Tampa, Orlando,
Jacksonville), as well as Georgia to participate in these events. The team credits their success to the support of their spon-

TEEN-AGE DAUGHTER DEFY FATHER--A JSO officer
was called to a residence on Greenfern Lane in reference to a
domestic dispute. Upon arrival, the officer met with the moth-
er who advised that her husband and their 16-year-old daugh-
ter were having a dispute. The officer talked with the father
who advised that his daughter was told not to attend track prac-
tice due to an incident that occurred about three days before.
He said that the daughter went to track practice anyway and
when she arrived home, she went straight to her room without
greeting her parents. The father therefore approached her and
asked where she had been. She told him that she went to track
practice. He said, "Didn't I tell you to come home?" The
daughter replied, "You told me to do whatever I want to do."
The father said, "No, I didn't say that. He further advised her
that she could not go to track the next day.
According to all, the argument became louder and the daugh-
ter began to sound more disrespectful and rude towards her
father. She told him that she was going to track practice. Both
father and daughter continued back forth and then the daughter
told him that she had told her teacher, coaches and the police
(school resource officer) that she expected him to "come up to
the school and act like a fool." She said they told her that if he
came up to the track field and acted a fool and hit her, they
would call the police and put him in jail. The father response
was, "Well, if that's the case you get your things and go with
the people who told you that."
The girl went to her room and started packing her belongings.
The father approached her and advised her that the suitcase did
not belong to her. At that time, the daughter jumped up into her
father's face and stated, "this ain't your house, this is. momma's
house." The father yelled, "No, this is your momma's and my
house, and you are going to do what I say." At that time, the
daughter continued to- get into her father's face (as close as
nose to nose) yelling, spitting, and being disrespectful.
At that point, the father slapped her and she slapped him back.
The father slapped her a second time and the daughter made a
move to hit her father with a closed fist but he grabbed her in
a manner to control her. She continued to kick, swing with a
closed fist, and yelling get off. The father continued to control
his daughter and tried to spank her but the daughter went into
a violent rage. At that point, the father grabbed her in a man-
ner to pull her back into her room so he could shut the door. He
advised that the red mark in her face had probably occurred
when she went into the violent rage. He felt she may have hit
her head on the floor, wall, or hall door.
During the incident, the mother contacted the police. The
daughter and father gave the same account and the mother
advised that she did not see the physical part of the disagree-
ment but did hear it.
The mother was advised'of vine procedures and received a sig-
nature form without a pin number. The child abuse hot line
was contacted. No arrest.was made.
WOMAN ACCUSED OF BEING WITH BOSS -- An offi-
cer was dispatched to Gilmore Street because of a domestic
battery. The victim stated that she and the suspect live togeth-
er and have three small children together.
The victim stated that her boss called her on her cell phone that
morning and the suspect became upset and accused her of hav-
ing a relationship with her boss. The victim said the suspect
called her.boss back, questioning him about why he was call-
ing her on her cell. After the suspect hung up the phone, he
began slapping the victim and pulling her hair. The victim said
that the suspect slapped her three times on the left side of her
face and poked her in the head with his index finger.
There was a small scratch on the right side of the victim's face.
The victim advised that all of this occurred in the bedroom in
front of their children. She stated that the children cried dur-
ing the incident.
The four year old continued to cry and advised the officer that
the suspect had hit the mother.
The case was cleared by an arrest.

J. Dilla Succumbs To Lupus
Highly respected music pro-
ducer and hip-hop artist J Dilla
died last Friday, February 10 in
Los Angeles. His death was not a
result of tragic violence, nor was it
a self-inflicted demise. J Dilla's
death was caused by the autoim-
mune disease lupus.
Dilla. born James Yancey,
worked with such artists as
Common, A Tribe Called Quest,
Q-Tip, Erykah Badu, and The
Roots. Born and raised in Detroit,
Yancey was a founding member
of Slum Village in the late 1990s,
performing under the name Jay
Dee. He left after the trio's suc-
cessful first album to pursue a solo
career. Pharell Williams of the
Neptunes said that Dilla was his
He released his first solo
album last Tuesday. It had partly
been recorded in hospital. A
memorial concert is being planned
by organizers Q-Tip and
His untimely death at age 32
serves as an important opportunity
to highlight the impact of lupus on
the African American community.
More than 1.5 million Americans
suffer from lupus, and African
Americans are 2-3 times more
likely to develop the disease than
Lupus is a serious health
threat. While skin rashes and joint
pain are among its many symp-
toms, lupus can lead to heart
attack, stroke, kidney failure and
death. Sadly, J Dilla survived only
3 years past his diagnosis.
Lupus is widespread, yet
awareness and accurate knowl-
edge about it lag behind many
other illnesses. For more informa-
tion on the disease visit:
