Founded In April 1951 By Eric O. Simpson
First African American Inducted Into
The Florida Press Hall Of Fame

50 Years Later Ghana Stands as Trailblazer
for African Independence
Marc H. Morial
President and CEO, National Urban League

In early March, thou-
sands of Ghanaians hit the
streets of their West African
nation to celebrate a truly
momentous event the 50th
anniversary of its independ-
ence from Britain.
On March 6, 1957,
Africa's Gold Coast became
Ghana, the continent's first
Black state to break the
shackles of colonial rule, a
bloodless handover of
power that set off a wave of
independence worldwide.
By 1960, 17 more
colonies gained independ-
ence, and Ghanaian
President Kwame Nkrumah
emerged as one of the most
influential Pan-Africanists
of the 20th Century. The
independence campaign
.coincided with the rise of
the civil rights movement
among African-Americans
trying to break free of
oppression in the South.
Both movements fed off the
success of the other.
"For years and years,
Africa has been the foot
stool of colonialism and
imperialism, exploitation
and degradation. From
the north to the south,
from the east to the west,
her sons languished in
chains of slavery and
humiliation, and Africa's
exploiters and self-
appointed controllers of

her destiny strode across
the land with incredible
inhumanity without
mercy, without shame and
without honor.
But these days are gone
and gone forever. And
now, I, an African, stand
before this ,august assem-
bly of the United Nations
and speak with the voice of
peace and freedom, pro-
claiming to the world the
dawn of a new era,"
Nkrumah told the United
Nations General Assembly
in 1960, according to a
transcript of the radio
show "Democracy Now"!
Born near the Ivory
Coast border, Nkrumah was
educated in Ghana and left
the country for college in
the United States, where he
met Marcus Garvey and
W.E. B. DuBois, who he
conferred citizenship upon
as president. He became
prominent in the Pan-
African movement in the
United States and Britain,
which influenced his vision
and helped frame his move-
ment when he returned
home in 1947.
Educated elites had
formed a political party they
wanted Nkrumah to lead,
but they were more interest-
ed in keeping what little
power they had than gaining
independence. He then

launched his own party -
the Convention People's
Party, and with the rallying
cry, "Independence now!",
unified a nation. That
brought him prison time, but
it was too late for the colo-
nial government to stifle the
independence cry: It held
elections, in which
Nkrumah won by a land-
slide. In 1952, he was
appointed prime minister,
and, by 1957 Ghana came
out from under the British
Crown. But Nkrumah real-
ized that Ghana's independ-
ence would have little
meaning if the rest of Africa
didn't follow suit.
"He was convinced that
the only way forward for
Africa is African continental
unity ... It also means that
the African diaspora would
have the right to return and
to have African citizenship,
if they so wish," observed
son Gamal Nkrumah on
Democracy Now!
Nkrumah also had a
"meeting of minds" with
Malcolm X in which both
were convinced the "only
way' forward was for
Africans and displaced
Africans to band together.
"It is this vision of the two
men, that the most impor-
tant thing is the networking
of oppressed people, and the
unity is paramount to the
success of the struggle," the
younger Nkrumah noted.
SNkrumah also started
industrialization in Ghana,
which he believed vital to

breaking the nation's eco-
nomic dependence on the
West, by building the costly
Akosombo Dam and Tema
Harbour at the expense of
the nation's cash crop --
cocoa. At the time, Ghana
was hardly a Shangri La for
individual freedoms:
Nkrumah declared himself
president for life and
imposed laws allowing
imprisonment of citizens for
up to five years without trial
and making strikes illegal.
Seemingly authoritarian
actions brought internation-
al sanctions that, coupled
with a collapsing world
cocoa market, undermined
the country's economy,
paving the way for a CIA-
backed coup in 1966.
Since then Ghana under-
went' successive military
coups until 1981 when
Flight L'ieutenant Jerry
Rawlings led, suspending
the constitution and banning
political parties. In 1992, it
veered back to a democracy:
Rawlings was freely elected
that year and in 1996 suc-
ceeded by John Kufuor,
now in his second term.
Despite some detours,
Ghanaian democracy has
stood the test of half a cen-
tury. It's an achievement
that we should all celebrate.
Much like the civil rights
movement here, it is far
from perfect but on the road
to the realization of high
hopes Nkrumah had for it.

You may want a traditional
funeral service with visitation
and a member of the clergy con-

you want a special friend to do

First, you should shop
around and talk to a few funeral

Decide on body disposition.
Burial or cremation? If earth bur-

purchased; if above ground, a
mausoleum crypt. If cremation is
the choice, plan disposition of
the ashes. Do you want them
stored in a columbarium niche or
buried? Maybe you prefer to
have your ashes scattered?
An option some people take
is to donate organs and tissues to
a medical school (have a donor
card and check on requirements).
If you would rather have a
memorial service express that
wish. That means a service in the
funeral home or a church where
the body is not present. A com-
mon misconception is that when
the body is cremated you don't
hold a fimeral. You can hold a
funeral before cremation.

"There's Always Something

Happening On The First Coast"
2007 EVE Awards Luncheon Speaker Wows the
With warmth, charisma, charm, intelligence, knowledge
and expertise, the 2007 EVE Awards Luncheon speaker Ms.
Carla Harris had the audience in the 'palm of hands'. And
there was no doubt that she would do just that. Ms. Harris
has been captivating, talented and very, very intelligent since
childhood. I personally observed her as a student at Bishop
Kenny High School and there was no doubt that this young
lady was going places. With scholarships to go to just about
any place she desired, she chose Harvard University where
she earned an AB in Economics Magna cum Laude and an
MBA Second Year Honors from Harvard Business School.
Ms. Harris is actively involved in the community and has
funded the Carla Harris Scholarship Fund at Harvard
University and at the local Bishop Kenny High School
where she graduated in 1980. She recently presented Bishop
Kenny High School with a $135,000 contribution for the
minority scholarship fund and she donated the EVE Awards
Luncheon Speaker honoraria to the Bishop Kenny scholar-
ship fund.
"As Managing Director of Global Capital Markets Carla
Harris makes deals worth billions and billions", stated
Florida Time Union Editor Patrick Yack during his intro-
duction of Ms. Harris. After hearing her on Friday, we left
there knowing that her brilliance is a major factor.
For the 600+ attendees, she shared the criteria for fine
leadership from her observations for the past 20 years of the
country's top executives on Wall Street, through working
with inspiring futurists in the non-profit sector and her own
personal experience. She called them 'Her Pearls-The 7
M's': 1.Maintain your authenticity; 2.Memorialize the strat-
egy and focus, focus, focus; 3.Mobilize action. "Great lead-
ers are always decisive," stated Ms. Harris who quoted a
successful chief executive as saying that "the price of inac-
tion is greater than the cost of making a mistake"; 4.Marshal
changes as the average product cycle is two years tops, it is
imperative to be on the forefront of change; Make the objec-
tive bigger than you, bigger than the I, bigger than the com-
pany; 6. Manage with respect." An effective leader listens
first, talks last,' stated Ms. Harris; and 7. Have the mindset
of a winner.
The only disappointment of the event was that Vice
Chairperson Mrs. Betty Seabrook Burney, Duval County
School Board and EVE Awards Volunteer Category Finalist
did not receive the Golden Apple. However, we felt great
pride seeing her on stage with the other finalists

Tax Vote Next January

Property Tax Vote Set

for Next January 29th

Floridians will get to express their choices for property
tax issues and presidential candidates on the same day -
Jan. 29, The date for the statewide vote was announced last
week as lawmakers began meeting to discuss property tax
proposals for the special session that begins this Tuesday.
Voters would be presented with ballot questions to expand
homestead exemptions in the constitution.
House Speaker Marco Rubio and Senate President Ken
Pruitt wrote to legislators outlining their agreement on the
form property tax relief would take. It includes an immedi-
ate rollback of city and county taxes to a previous years'
level. Lawmakers can institute that change themselves, by
Another part of the puzzle is a proposed vast increase in
the size of homestead exemptions based on a percentage of
a home's value, with tiers of lower exemptions for higher
That would require the approval of voters to amend the
state's constitution.
There are a number of advantages to the Jan. 29 date:
It's relatively quick.
No extra cost for the election, with a statewide vote
already scheduled.
Allows flexibility for counties and cities, as it's in the
middle of their budget years.
"It will also create
greater sensitivity to the
needs of Florida for those
running for president,"
Cannon said of the primary.
The vote will happen
about a month before next
year's regular session of the
Legislature. No matter the
outcome, lawmakers will
be able to act in accordance
with the decision of the
electorate. V

St. Petersburg Times
The conflict between my head and my
heart over the future of Historically Black
Colleges and Universities is reflected in
enduring scenes from my two years of
teaching at Alabama's Stillman College.
There were the young men who hung out
at the entrance gates of the small Tuscaloosa
school and had no interest in learning. They
represented my frustration with too many
students who arrived on campus unprepared
for college, who failed to attend class or buy
the textbooks, who refused to complete the
assignments and who forced professors to
coddle them.
Then there were those few dedicated stu-
dents who saw Stillman as their only path to
a brighter future. There was the young single
mother who worked full-time at night and
struggled to stay awake in class, the unpol-
ished journalist eager to improve and find
work at a newspaper, the young man who
turned himself into an expert on President
Bush's campaign, speeches and dared to
stand out from the hip-hop culture around
One group leads me to question whether
historically black colleges are worth saving.
The other is an inspiration and symbolizes
why these institutions still are vital for many
young people struggling to build productive
Nearly a year after leaving the campus, I
am only now resolving the conflict in my
own mind.

Glory years are gone, but ...
Undeniably, the picture is bleak for many
historically black colleges. There are more
options for high-achieving black students,
and integration has left these schools with
diminished but more difficult roles in higher
The situation was different before the
1964 Civil Rights Act, when a degree fromfi
one of these schools was the primary route
to respectability, success and the good life
for black Americans. Back then, they
enrolled most black college students and
were responsible for the bulk of the black
middle class.
The glory years are long gone, especially
at the smallest of the 39 private schools that
receive money and other support from the
United Negro College Fund. Majority white
campuses seeking ethnically diverse student
populations are enrolling many of the
nation's best black students.
Now only 1 in 5 black students earn
bachelor's degrees from historically black
schools, which have increasingly, become
dependent upon marginal students from
poor families. Two-thirds of HBCU students
receive federally funded Pell Grants, aimed
at families earning less than $40, 000 annu-
ally. More than half of the students receive
those grants at every HBCU except at 13 of
the best schools, such as Spelman, Howard
and Morehouse,
Studies show schools with a high number
of Pell recipients tend to have low admission
standards, and the reasons for their low
graduation rates are well-documented. Most
low-income students have parents who did
not attend college, which often signals that
their homes have few books or other reading
materials. Many of the students never devel-
op a love of learning, and they tend to per-
form poorly in class and on standardized
The statistics reflect my experience as a
professor between 2004 and 2006 at
Stillman, which had fewer than 1, 000 stu-
dents. Most of my students would not study,
regularly turn in their homework on time or
read the assigned material. I walked grum-
bling students to the bookstore to try to force
them to buy their required textbooks.
These students lacked the intellectual
vigor taken for granted on traditional cam-
puses. They did not know what or whom to
respect. For many, the rappers Bow Wow
and 50 Cent were at least as important to
black achievement as the late Ralph Bunche,
the first black to win a Nobel Peace Prize,

and Zora Neale Hurston, the great novelist.
In time, I realized that my standards were
too high for the quality of student I had to
teach. Most simply were not prepared for
college-level work, and I was not profes-
sionally trained for the intense remediation
they needed'and deserved.
Many HBCU's, including Stillman, lack
the resources and money to assist these stu-
dents with effective remediation. These stu-
dents naturally find friends on campus who
share their streetwise, anti-intellectual views
and behavior. They lose interest in education
or become so overwhelmed they leave
school altogether.
Only a handful of HBCUs, including
Fisk University in Tennessee, Spelman
College in Atlanta, Claflin University in
South Carolina and Miles College in
Birmingham, graduate more than half their
students (The graduation rate at Florida
A&M is 33 percent). These schools funnel
large sums of money into remediation,
advising and counseling. They also offer
small classes so students have easy access to
their professors.
Others, such as Southern University in
New Orleans, Allen University in South
Carolina and Stillman, graduate less than 30
percent of their students.
As the number and quality of students
drop, historically black colleges cannot
depend as they once did on the financial
generosity of their alumni. The problem is
compounded by the reality that many corpo-
rations and foundations scaled back their
philanthropic efforts following the 2000
economic downturn. Many donors still are
not as generous as they once were, and
struggling HBCUs have been hit especially


Ebony Horton, a natural-born
reporter, landed a full-time job at the
Dothan Eagle. She did not, however,
have classmates who shared her
enthusiasm and gift for reporting.
Although Ebony found a good job,
Maxwell is certain Stillman College
should have done more for her.

Stillman president Ernest McNealey reg-
ularly told this joke: "I have a very large tin
cup ... and I'm constantly running through
airports with my tin cup, and wherever the
plane lands; I will go to the tallest building
and work my way from the penthouse- on
down to the garbage unit with my tin cup.
And whether it's the CEO or the janitor, I
will hear this long story about the declining,
stock market."
It does not help that too many black col-
leges have serious management issues. The
media has regularly reported academic,
financial or administrative problems at
schools such as Morris Brown in Georgia,
Lemoyne-Owen College in Memphis,
Grambling State in Louisiana, Edward
Waters in Jacksonville and Florida A&M in
The numbers for many historically black
colleges are not encouraging. Declining
enrollments, loose admission standards and
low graduation rates produce ever-tighter
budgets, less reliable alumni networks and
grimmer futures.
Excellence by the handful
Yet I cannot turn my back pn these
schools. I cannot forget what they did for me
many years ago, and I cannot forget the
handful of dedicated students at Stillman
who were determined to succeed even in the
face of the school's considerable shortcom-
iggs. !>

Teens Continued from A-1
Education said they could not go along with the school since the students could not
control others and also, there were white parents and friends who cheered for the
graduates and all of them were able to receive their diplomas. Only the four blacks
and one hispanic student was denied their 'keepsake' item. The parents and students
of all races had signed an agreement to "act dignified" at the ceremonies.
After an attorney took the case without charge for the students and parents, and the
students refused to apologize and of course, the media coverage, the school decided
to issue the diplomas to the five students.

Elder Donald Foy, president of MAD DADS said the organization is constantly ir

and trying to get the people to understand they are causing more harm by not telling
and allowing the criminals to get away. Foy said that there was a 47-percent reduc-
tion in crime in the Edward Waters area after they became involved. They want the
people to understand that not telling not only hurt the victims but the families and
the community as well. The present objective is to break the code of silence and
help to make our city safe.

The Once and Future Promise
By Bill Maxwell
All of my public school teachers were
HBCU alumni, and I admired them. My sis-
ters graduated from HBCUs, Bethune-
Cookman in Daytona Beach and Florida
Memorial in Miami. Bernard Irving, my
high school football coach, graduated from
Wiley College in Texas and was responsible
for my attending that school. I went there
from 1963 to 1966, when I joined the U.S.
Marine Corps. After I was discharged from
the Corps in 1969, I went to Bethune-
Cookman, where I graduated with a double'
major in English and history in 1971.
Just as those schools provided me with
an opportunity, I tried to create the same
chances for my most engaged students at
Stillman. I had a few successes, but I most-
ly fell short.
A researcher for the Education Trust, an
independent policy group, said in 2005:
"Instead of a certain kind of student drag-
ging down some institutions, we could just
as easily argue that some institutions are
dragging down a certain kind of student."
I found that to be true. I had a handful of
excellent journalism students at Stillman
who all had SAT scores below 1, 000.
Ebony Horton, for example, was a natural-
born reporter. She had an eye for a good
story, knew how to find the right sources
and was a better-than-average writer. She
did not, however, have classmates who
shared her enthusiasm and gift for reporting.
As a result, she bowed to peer pressure: She
often cut covers, handed in flawed copy
and missed deadlines more times than I
Because she had natural skills, Ebony
interned at the Tuscaloosa News and after

They just bullshit all the time, and the
administration doesn't care. It's all messed
He gave up on an HBCU and transferred
to Millsaps College in Mississippi. I plead-
ed with him and the others to stay. I did not
want to lose such potential. Although they
came to Stillman with low standardized test
scores, they were smart and highly motivat-
ed. They were precisely the kind of students
most HBCUs were meant to serve: those

Miss Black America Contestants

Awed by African Culture, Hospitality

By. Noluthando Crockett-Ntonga
NNPA Special Correspondent
Ever since Africans were snatched
from their homes and forced into slavery
in the United States, there has always
been among many of their descendants, a
yearning for their motherland, a desire for
connection to the home of their ancestors.
The Miss Black USA Scholarship
Pageant celebrating its 20th year, took its
36 contestants and more than 100 others
n on "A Royal Journey Back to Our Roots"
t last week. For the first time, the pageant
, was held outside the U.S. in The Gambia,
W est Africa. Both, the Gambians and the
e Americans benefited powerfully.
S "We want to seize the opportunity to
Penetrate the American market and not just
depend on the Europeans for tourism,"
says Secretary of State for Tourism and
Culture, Angela B. Colley. "Last year we
traveled to the U.S. and met a number of
African-Americans. This is your mother-
land, we invite you back home, you are
children of Africa," she says.
Gambia's President Yahya A.J.J.
Jammeh has created, an environment
.where African-Americans are warmly
welcomed. This is part of a trade and
investment strategy.
"Gambian hospitality is off the chain,"
says Miss Black Virginia Takiyah Nur
Amin. "Most of the people are not afflu-
ent but they always have a spirit of open-
ness and helpfulness," she says. "The
economic disparities took me by sur-
prise," says Miss Black Connecticut,

people the same quality of educatioA they
would have-received 2 miles away at the
University of Alabama which would not
have accepted most of them because of
their low test scores.

Make some hard choices
In the end, the numbers signaling the
decline of historically black colleges can-
not trump my affection for these schools. I
appreciate what they did for me, and I
appreciate the good they are doing today
for their most dedicated students. Despite
my disappointment at Stillman and the
crises at many HBCUs, these schools still
have an important role to play in society.
But to continue to play that important
role, they must show huge improvement
and make some hard choices.
The top-tier schools will continue to
attract good students and remain vibrant,
financially viable institutions. Among
those familiar names are Spelman College
and Morehouse College in Atlanta and
Howard University in Washington, D.C.,
each a member of the so-called "Black Ivy
But some schools are so academically
inferior and so poorly serving their stu-
dents they should be shut down. Others,
such as Lemoyne-Owen, which is millions
of dollars in debt, are in such financial
trouble that the operations should be hand-
ed over to independent agencies.
A few black colleges should merge into
regional campuses. In Alabama, Stillman
College and Talladega College are notable
examples. Together, they could create a
well-funded regional campus to serve
thousands of students.
Because of students such as Ebony
Horton; Cedric Baker and others, most his-
torically black institutions, still serve a
valuable role. Although these students are
intelligent, motivated, ambitious and
morally decent, their low standardized test
scores and low family incomes prevent
them from attending most traditional
schools. But they deserve a chance to dis-
cover their self-worth and mature .into
responsible adults, just as I did.
At Stillman, there were not enough of
these dedicated students to overcome my

own frustrations. Yet despite my personal
disappointments, I am not willing to write
off historically black colleges.
For the good they still do and the
opportunities they still provide for deserv-
ing students with few other options, the
majority of HBCUs ae worth saving. It
will take a lot of effort, but it is too impor-
tE It not to try.

Africans on an economic level. We should do
as the Jews do for Israel." Miss Black New
Hampshire, Telena Cassell, was impressed to
see the level of women in government in The
Gambia. "There are so many involved, not
just tokens, but really taking ownership and
governing. We can learn a lot from them."
The contestants were accompanied by pen
pals on the Roots tour to James Island.
"James Island was an important location
during the early slave trade," says Momodou
C. Joof, Executive Director of Gambia's
National Council for Arts and Culture. "The
Portuguese landed there in 1455 in search of
gold but when one of their sailors got sick and
died there, they abandoned the island.
Joof says that while it is true that Africans
enslaved each other before the arrival of the
Europeans, it was not the brutal slavery that
came to be known in America during the -
Middle Passage. Some Africans, due to greed,
aided and abetted the Europeans by selling
their fellow Africans into slavery. James Island
is now a World Heritage Site because of its
outstanding universal value to humanity.
The winner of Miss Black USA 2007,
Kalilah Allen-Harris, Miss Black Tennessee,
says she grew up with all the negative images
of Africa in school and in society but at home
mother gave her another view. As a result of
taking an African studies class at college she
realized the importance of educating herself
on Africa. "I was outraged when I first
learned about colonization. I've been so
moved by my experience here in The
Gambia. I have grieved for my forefathers
and felt my ancestors watching over me."

Home Schooler Wins Scripps

National Spelling Bee

This year's Scripps National Spelling Bee winner is
Evan O'Dorney, a 13-year-old homeschooler from
Danville, California.
The winning word was "serrefine" a noun describing
small forceps. But as exciting as it was to win the nation-
al spelling bee, Evan seems even more enthusiastic about
his upcoming math camp this summer and the calculus
class he has registered for at the University of California
at Berkeley.
"My favorite things to do were math and music, and
with the math I really like the way the numbers fit togeth-
er," he said. "And with the music I like to let out ideas by
composing notes and the spelling is just a bunch of mem-
Evan won a tense duel with Nate Gartke of Spruce
Grove, Alberta, who was attempting to become the first
Canadian to win the 80th annual bee. Evan and Nate
went head-to-head for three rounds, matching each
other's correct spellings until Nate flubbed the medical
word "coryza" by adding the letter "h."
Until then, Nate had been quite the showman, wav-
ing celebrity-like to the audience after each word and
basking in the cheers from a row that waved red-and-
white maple leaf flags.
Evan, who tied for 14th last year, won $35,000 cash,
plus a $5,000 scholarship, a $2,500 savings bond and a
set of reference works. His victory came even though he
wasn't able to stick to one of his superstitions: He didn't
have his usual pre-competition meal of fish because
chicken was served instead at the Spelling Bee dinner.
Asked if he liked the bee more now that he's
won it, Evan said: "Are you saying I'm supposed to
like it more? Yeah, I do a little bit."

How uan i write A winning 5cnolarsnip Essay.

By Dante Lee

Here are some tips on
how to write a great
scholarship essay.
Third Person: Be
sure to write your essay
in 3rd person. This
means not to use words
such as "I", "we" or
even "you". Rather, you
want to write your essay
as if it's a newspaper
article or a press release.
For instance, suppose
the essay question is
"What do you think
about abortions?" Don't
start off saying "I think
abortions are..." or "I
believe that abortions
can..." Instead, just say
"Abortions are..." or
"Abortions can..."
Organization: Be

sure to organize your
essay. This means that
you will need a definite
introduction, a body, and
a conclusion. Be sure to
use paragraphs, and
make it clear which
paragraphs are which.
Also, organize your
thoughts. Don't have
random thoughts within
the essay that don't
exactly fit with the flow
of the paragraphs.
References; Use ref-
erences in your essay to
show that you did your
research. You can cite a
book, a magazine, or
even a web site.
Whenever you make a
claim in your essay that
wouldn't be obvious to
most people, you should
definitely cite where you
obtained such a state-

ment. You can also
include a few quotes
from notable people, but
make sure that it appro-
priately relates to the
topic of your essay.
Pay Attention: Pay
attention to the rules.
Many people lose essay
contests because they
don't follow simple
rules. For example, if a
scholarship contest
requires that you put
only your name and
phone number at the top
of your essay then do
just that. Don't decide to
add your address and fax
number. If they say to
email your essay in,
don't submit it via postal
mail. This may very well
be a test to see if you can
follow instructions.
No Typos: Be sure

that you spell all words
correctly in your essay.
Make sure that you use
quotation marks, com-
mas, colons, semi-
colons, and periods
appropriately. Avoid
incomplete sentences
and run-on sentences.
Make The Deadline:
Shockingly, many appli-
cants try to submit
essays after the deadline.
Make sure that you get
yours in on time. Don't
procrastinate. Start early,
and submit early.
Think Big...and
Small: Don't just apply
for the high-end scholar-
ships for $5,000 and up.
Keep in mind that these
generally are more com-
petitive due to more
applicants. Be sure to
also apply for the small-

er ones, likb the $500
and $1,000 scholarships.
These opportunities are
easier to win because
most applicants don't
take them very seriously.
They also usually have
less applicants.

For Runaway Slaves in 1600's

The Spanish culture in Florida in the
17th and 18th century had a different way of
viewing slavery than their English neighbors
in the Carolina Colony did, and probably
due to the influence of the Moors who ruled
Spain for 700 years, slavery never had the
racial overtones that it did to the English. I
was normal to find both enslaved people of
African origin and free Africans in St.
By the late
1600s, black
slaves had learned
that they could
escape their
British masters 4
and seek freedom. '' '.-.
and asylum in

Catholicism and :

but reestablished ..'
the fort at a near-
by site in 1752. Artist's rendering of the old
by site in 1752. In
defending their
freedom and Spanish Florida in the middle
decades of the 18th century, the black inhab-
itants of Fort Mose played a significant role
in the geopolitical conflicts between Britain
and Spain in the Southeast. Fort Mose's
inhabitants were mainly runaway black
slaves from the British colonies of South
Carolina and Georgia, who escaped to free-
dom of Spanish Florida in small groups at
least as early as 1687.
The fort was described as an earthem-
walled fort with Indian-type thatched huts,
and the community housed thirty-eight men
and their families, and estimated population
of about one hundred people. They adopted
Spanish names and Spanish culture with an
African flavor. Settlers of Fort Mose main-
tained important social links to St. Augustine,
resulting in marriages, baptisms, and fraternal
relations between the two communities.
This was the beginning of North
America's first free legally sanctioned Black
community, Fort Mose, or "Gracia Real de
Santa Teresa de Mose". Fort Mose (pro-
nounced moe-say) was located two miles
north of the Castillo de San Marcos St.
Augustine's popular fort near the marsh
on Mose Creek, a tributary of the Tolomato
River which flows south into Matanzas Bay.
Trails from St. Augustine heading north and
west passed near the fort. With these water-
ways and trails so near, this outpost was of

i,,il "' '
, .

,, [ .

strategic importance to the Spanish military.
In exchange for the land, the black militia
agreed to help protect the northern
approaches to St. Augustine.
In 1740, during his attack against St.
Augustine, British General James
Oglethorpe captured Fort Mose, and the
inhabitants fled to St. Augustine. A few
weeks later, however, Franciscp Menendez,
the leader of the Ft. Mose community, led
his forces in a
surprise attack
and a valiant
retaking of the
fort. However,
S; the battle had
destroyed the
a ',, fort, and it was
not rebuilt until
"- .,, 1752. The for-
.,,,, i mer enslaved
Africans from
English colonies
lived there as,
free people until
l -.-' 1763 when the
First Treaty of
Paris gave
~jr Florida to Great
-" Britain, and the
inhabitants of
Fort Mose and
Fort Mose near St Augustine most other citi-
zens of Spanish
St. Augustine relocated to Cuba
Abandoned and forgotten, Fort Mose
slowly fell into ruin, then disappeared.
When Florida became a territory of the
United States in 1821 and then a southern
state in 1845, there was little interest in
researching black history. Evidence of the
first free black settlement remained buried
under the marsh until the middle of the
twentieth century when researchers began
uncovering the story of Fort Mose and the
Africans' contributions to St. Augustine.
Eventually, an archaeological dig in 1986
uncovered the site of the fort as well as frag-
ments of items used in the inhabitants' daily
lives such as pottery and religious artifacts
Today it is a National Historic
Landmark. Fort Mose is a precursor site of
the Underground Railroad, demonstrating
that resistance to slavery was both early and
fierce, and that it arose decades before abo-
litionism became organized and influential.
The state of Florida was able to acquire
the 24-acre site and now administers it
through Anastasia State Recreation Area. In
1994 Fort Mose was designated a National
Historic Landmark. Since it is located in the

Residents Not Taking Hurricanes Seriously
Most people along the Atlantic and Gulf coasts still
lack a hurricane survival plan and don't feel vulnerable to
storms, despite Katrina's dramatic damage and pleas
from emergency officials for residents to prepare before
the season starts, according to a poll released last week.
Over half of those surveyed in 18 Atlantic and Gulf Coast
states say they don't feel that they are vulnerable to a hur-
ricane, or to related tornadoes and flooding, according to
the Mason-Dixon poll
The six-month Atlantic season started last week, and
one forecaster said odcs were high that a major hurricane-
would hit the U.S. this year.

Dear Deanna!
My grandmother is embarrassing because she's old and still
trying to act young. It's annoying to see my grandmother try-
ing to sing rap songs, smoke cigarettes and wearing jeans. My
parents don't mind but I don't think its right. I feel that she
makes herself look foolish and she doesn't realize that people
are laughing at her. I would like a few suggestions on how I
can have this discussion with my grandmother without appear-
ing disrespectful?
Amber Oklahoma City, OK

Dear Amber:
Your grandmother is old enough to live her life without worrying about what you or any-
one else thinks. You could learn things such self-confidence and the ability to love life from
this woman. If she was smoking marijuana and dressing like a hoochie, you would have a
legitimate problem. But since she's enjoying life, you should relax, take her shopping and
be blessed that you have a grandmother that's on her feet and not deceased or in a nursing

Dear Deanna!
My daughter has left for college and made a mess out of her life. I took the time to help
with student loans and scholarships and she has flunked out of the first semester. I learned
that she never went to class and her school supplies haven't been touched. To make matters
worse, she's now back at home pregnant and unemployed. I don't have time for this and I'm
tired of dealing with her drama. I know this is my daughter but what can I do to help with-
out disrupting my life?
Glenda Birmingham, AL

Dear Glenda:
Your daughter's bad life and mistakes are a reflection of your poor parenting skills. If you
don't have time for your daughter now, you probably didn't have time when she was grow-
ing up and now she doesn't know if she's going or coming. You need to make time now
because if you don't you'll be stuck with her longer than you think. Help her restore her
options in life and encourage her to go back to school, get a job and find the baby's father
so she'll have help.
Dear Deanna!
I recently gave birth to a baby girl. My boyfriend was hoping for a boy and he seemed
disappointed. Things were fine until the baby Was three months old. My boyfriend stopped
coming around and when he did, he always seemed distant. I later learned that he has a new
son that is a month older than my daughter. He cheated on me, got someone pregnant and
we had our kids at the same time. I am devastated and don't know what to do about this rela-
Devastated New Mom Queens, NY

Dear Devastated:
Your first mistake is having a baby out of wedlock. Another mistake is a boyfriend that
showed disappointment because of the baby's gender. You can see in advance that if you
stay with this man you're going to have cheating, drama from another woman and a stress-
ful relationship. It's to your advantage to organize the child support payments and seek com-
mitment. If he won't do the right thing, kick him to the curb, raise your child and keep it

May 11, 2007

My name is Dr Juan P. Gray. I am a lifetime resident of Jacksonville, Florida. This letter
is a response to the article citing Jacksonville as one of the "Best Cities for Africa
Americans" in your May 2007 edition of Black Enterprise.

The Farmer's moved to Jacksonville nine years ago from Brooklyn and Atlanta. They
appear to be a nice family but unfortunately they lack the historical overview to evaluate
the sociological impact of our community. The areas that seriously degrade our quality
of life include: earning potential, entrepreneurial opportunity, jobs, affordable housing,
race relations and Black Political Clot.
The real story of Jacksonville, Florida is revealed in these facts. Jacksonville's median
household income is $47,323 according to your article is not representative of the total
community. The Jacksonville Community Council, Inc Race Relations Progress Report
stated that "half of all Black families live below 175 percent of the federal poverty line
(32,988 for a family of four in 2004). Black Families receive public assistance at five
times the rate of White Families. Business leadership in Jacksonville remain
predominately white, as only 3.6 percent of local CEO s were Black in 2000".
Carene Farmer in your article admitted that "the first year was a bit of a culture shock" in
Jacksonville. One reason for this culture shock can be founded in "The City of
Jacksonville Disparity Study November 1990". This study says "from its earliest
beginning of the city of Jacksonville, race has a significant factor in determining the life
chances and opportunities of its citizens. From its inception as a city White Males were
expressly given privileges in every aspect of life including economics, politics and social
relations". The current mayor is doing his part to carry on this historical "good ole' boy
tradition". The local newspaper reported some actions by the mayor which do not
support diversity in our city. The mayor awarded $607 million for Construction
Contracts to improve the city. Black Construction Contractors received only $28.4
million of the total of those dollars. According to Tonyaa Weathersbee, a local
columnist, "A 1990 Disparity Study exposed such discrimination. The study documented
a 60 year in which good ole' boys were used to keep minorities out of the mainstream
and to limit their access to capital. Some were even threatened on job sites". Matt
Gainor in a local newspaper quoted President Charles Steele of the Southern Christian
Leadership Conference as saying "Jacksonville was a "racist city" and called mayor John
Peyton a "redneck".
Most recently Jacksonville has failed to provide economic opportunities to its poor
through HUD's Section 3 Program. HUD found Jacksonville in noncompliance with
following federal guidelines concerning Section 3. This was reported by Susan Eastman
in a local newspaper. "This determination was formalized in an April 4 letter by theU. S.
Department of Housing and Urban Development, in the latest in a 14 year fight to ensure
the city obeys federal laws when it accepts federal dollars". Harry C. Alford of the
National Black Chamber of Commerce wrote in an article "Beyond Rhetoric"-
Jacksonville, Florida will not do the right thing. "There was one city that was extremely
combative and rigid in a discriminatory pattern against Blacks, Hispanics and especially
people living under the poverty line. This was Jacksonville, Florida. It is truly a piece of
the old south when it comes to diversity, no city this size should be allowed to openly
Because of the total sum of these actions, I've coined the term "Economic Terrorism" to
describe the conduct of mayor Peyton and the "good ole' boys" in Jacksonville. Harry
Shorestein our State Attorney wrote this about Jacksonville in an article entitled "Tale of
Two Cities-Jacksonville the safest and the most dangerous city in Florida". Mr.
Shorestein said "Jacksonville is no longer the place I grew up. Depending on how you
carve it out statistically, geographically or demographically, you either live in
Jacksonville, the safest most dangerous city in the nation or you live in Jacksonville, the
most dangerous safe city in the nation. It all depends on your address.

Jacksonville, Florida has the potential to become a city where all ethnic groups can live
and realize the "American Dream". Unfortunately, we still have a lot of work to do to
make this a reality. The "good ole' boys and the city's leadership must share the
economic resources to ensure economic justice for all of the citizens of Jacksonville,
Florida. When this happens Jacksonville will be one of the "Best Cities for African

Coast Nevos and Baptist Health Partnership Honors Survivors
The partnership began simply enough in 1992 withthe memory of a friend and a need
to reach out.to women in our community. First Coast News anchor Jeannie Blaylock had
just lost her 29-year-old best friend to a disease her doctor assured her she didn't have.
At the same time, Baptist Health knew it was critical to educate all women, regardless of
age, of the benefits of breast self-exams, and was seeking a venue to do so.
With a combination of passion, concern and self-empowerment for women as its
foundation, Buddy Check 12 was born, and the partnership between First Coast
News/WTLV and WJXX and Baptist Health continues on, saving lives year after year.
Jeannie's messages to women are as clear today as they were 15 years ago. Get a
"buddy" and remind each other on the 12th of every month to perform breast self-exam-
inatio (BSE). With Baptist Health's education breast health literature, BSE instruction
shower cards, and health care professionals ready on the phones, women started calling
The result at last count... 757,000+ packets distributed, and 264 First Coast women
who found their own cancers and who credit Buddy Check with saving their lives.
"When we first started Buddy Check with Baptist, we knew we had a simple, but
powerful idea. We never dreamed, though, we'd be reaching hundreds of thousands of
women here locally. It has this incredible ability to connect women and inspire them to
tackle breast cancer head on," said Jeannie Blaylock.
Radiologist Christine Granfield, MD, medical director, Breast Health Services,
Baptist Health, agrees. "Buddy Check 12 has encouraged women to take charge of their
breast health, the combination of breast self-examination, an annual clinical breast exam
and screening mammography gives women the best chance of finding breast cancer early,
when treatment options are more likely to be successful."
Buddy Check didn't just get the word out about breast self-exam in Jacksonville. The
program has expanded nationally to dozens of cities, and internationally to more than 17
countries. Jeannie has personally visited Grenada three times, one time to meet a woman
who saw Buddy Check on TV and subsequently saved her own life.
Along the way, both Baptist Health and First Coast News have been honored many
times for their respective contributions to Buddy Check, but the 264 saved lives, other
saved lives around the country and across the globe, and the hundreds of thousands of
women now performing monthly self exams is all the partnership needs to continue on
years to comer 4

City targets Risky Sex Among Teens
Baltimore Facing one of the nation's worst AIDS
epidemics, city officials unveiled Wednesday
Baltimore's first high-profile media campaign aimed at
preventing risky sex among teenagers and young adults.
The message, "Spread the word, not the disease,"
should be appearing this summer in print, radio and tele-
vision advertisements as well as on wristbands and bus
shelters. One commercial radio station began airing the
message Wednesday.
Mayor Sheila Dixon and health officials Wednesday

have sex. L_ -

Obama Warns of 'Quiet Riot' Among Blacks
"They happen when a sense of disconnect settles in and hope dissipates. Despair takes hold
and young people all across this country look at the way the world is and believe that things are
never going to get any better." Barack Obama

Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama told an
obviously supportive crown in Hampton, Virginia this past
week that the Bush administration has done nothing to
defuse a "quiet riot" among blacks that threatens to erupt
just as the Rodney King riots did in Los Angeles 15 years
Obama said that with black people from New Orleans
and the Gulf Coast still displaced almost 20
months after Hurricane Katrina, frustration
and resentments are building explosively as
they did before the 1992 riots.
"This administration was colorblind in
its incompetence," Obama said at a confer-
ence of black clergy, "but the poverty and
the hopelessness was there long before the
"All the hurricane did was to pull the
curtain back for all the world to see," he
Obama's criticism of Bush prompted
ovation after ovation from the nearly 8,000
people gathered in, Hampton University's
Convocation Center, particularly when he
denounced the Iraq war and noted that he Democratic Presi
had opposed it from the outset. Barack Obama, C
Repeatedly, he referred to the riots that a meeting of the
erupted in Los Angeles after a jury acquit- Ministers confer

the 1991 beating of Rodney King, a black
motorist, after a high speed chase. Fifty-five people died and
more than 2,000 were injured in during days the riots in the
city's black neighborhoods.
"Those 'quiet riots' that take place every day are born
from the same place as the fires and the destruction and the
police decked out in riot gear and the deaths," Obama said.
"They happen when a sense of disconnect settles in and hope
dissipates. Despair takes hold and young people all across
this country look at the way the world is and believe that
things are never going to get any better."
He argued that once a hurricane hits or a jury renders a
not guilty verdict, "the frustration is there for all to see."
Obama, who is bidding to become the first black presi-
dent, took the stage after a succession of ministers repeated-


ly brought the crowd to its feet, singing, praying and sway-
ing to music.
Repeatedly, with evangelical zeal, he raised issues that
roused the crowd: increasing the minimum wage and teacher
pay, funding for public schools and college financial aid for
the poor, ending predatory lending and expediting the recon-
struction of New Orleans and the Mississippi coast.
He introduced his own pastor, the Rev.
Jeremiah Wright of Chicago's Trinity
United as "Unashamedly Black and
Unapologetically Christian." He credited
Wright with introducing him to Christ, and
peppered his speech with Scriptural refer-
ences, at one point invoking the opening
B,. lines of the Lord's Prayer.
Obama noted that during the riots, a bul-
let pierced the abdomen of a pregnant
woman and lodged in the elbowlof her fetus.
The baby was delivered by caesarian sec-
tion, the bullet was removed and the child,
S Jessica Glennis Evers-Jones, has only a
small scar on her arm to show for it.
Using the incident as a metaphor,
ential candidate, Obama said society's problems are worsen-
I., speaks before ing because "in too many places across the
ampton Univ. country, we have not even bothered to take
ice at the school the bullet out."
ia. "When we have more black men in
prison than in college, then it's time to take
the bullet out," he said.
Obama doesn't regularly focus on racial themes in his
standard campaign speeches. He did speak out on black
issues in Selma, Ala., in March, when he told a largely black
audience that he was a product of the civil rights movement
and lectured blacks for failing to vote in large numbers.
Several ministers at the conference said Obama's mes-
sage and style plays well among black voters and with their
spiritual leaders.
The Rev. Robert Abbott, pastor of the Holy Trinity
Baptist Church in Amityville, N.Y., said Obama connects
with black audiences because-of the preacher's style he uses
when addressing them. "The way he sounds, it's like he can
reach out and encourage people," Abbott said.

Republicans Blast Bush

Administration in Debates

Were those guys
Republicans or Democrats?
The question hung heavy in
the echos of last Tuesday's
Republican presidential
debate, the obvious loser
was President Bush and his
administration's record.
The Republican candi-
dates offered plenty of crit-
icism for their Democratic
opponents, but the big guns
were saved for the presi-
dent's performance over the
past six years. Iraq? Badly
mismanaged. Katrina?
Bungled. Immigration? The
wrong solution. Federal
spending? Out of control.
Even former cabinet
members hit the Bush
administration hard.
Former Wisconsin governor
Tommy Thompson, who
served as secretary of health
and human services during
Bush's first term, offered the
harshest opinion when
asked if he saw the presi-
dent playing a role in his
administration if he was
"I certainly would not
send him to the United
Nations," Thompson
answered to chuckles from
the' heavily Republican
audience at Saint Anselm
The debate seemed to
signal dpen season on the
president's record, high-

lighting the reality that the
candidates see the Bush
legacy as a liability rather
than an asset as they look
toward a general election
campaign in 2008.
The candidates were
careful not to make their
criticism of Bush too per-
sonal, which GOP strate-
gists believe remains out of
bounds for anyone with a
serious chance of winning
the Republican nomination.
But there was no attempt to
suggest, as Bush's father did
when he ran to succeed
then-President Ronald
Reagan in 1988, that they
want to be viewed as seek-
ing a third term of the cur-
rent Bush administration.
Bush still enjoys the
support of a sizeable major-
ity of Republicans, which
means personal criticism by
the candidates risks alienat-
ing loyal Republicans. The
most recent Washington
Post ABC News poll
showed that, while Bush's
overall approval rating
stands at 35 percent, he is
approved by 74 percent of
But Andrew Kohut of
the Pew Research Center
for the People and the Press
said support for Bush has
declined sharply from its
historic highs *nd it is not
surprising that the

Republican candidates have
begun to distance them-
selves from him this early in
the campaign. This is not
only because of Bush's
unpopularity among
Democrats and independ-
ents, but also because of
erosion in support among
"I think it's unavoid-

able," he said, noting that
Bush's approval among
Republicans in the latest
Pew poll had dropped to 65
percent from 77 percent in
"He's a Republican pres-
ident who once had 90 per-
cent approval among
Republicans]," Kohut
added. "They ,were very
loyal to Bush for a very
long time. The movement
downward has to db with
the fact that there's some
Republican disaffection
going on."

* Noles Out in Regionals

5 Fla Teams Out in NCAA

Suns in First Half Fight

Billy Donovan
Well, it's a done deal, signed, sealed and Idelivered,
etc., you can take it to the bank, Billy Donovan is again
the Gator's basketball coach.
"I realized in less than 24 hours after signing a con-
tract with the Magic that I had made a mistake that had
nothing to do with the Magic," Donovan said in a state-
ment Wednesday night. "Instead, I realized that, in my
heart, I belonged in college basketball. As soon as I real-
ized that, I contacted the Magic immediately to let them
So who has learned what if anybody has learned any-
thing? Let's start at the bottom of the feed chain.
Anthony Grant has certainly learned that the VCU
Rams are his future, at least for a while. Grant will even-
tually move up the NCAA ladder and to know that you
were the first pick at the GatorNation can't be all that bad
and the publicity didn't hurt either.
The Orlando Magic didn't get a new head coach but
they got more publicity than they could have ever gener-
ated on their own. There was that significant spike in
ticket sales and the Magic became an instant hot topic.
Donovan's hiring ranked up there with Kobe Bryant's
trade demand and LeBron James leading Cleveland to its.
first NBA finals. PR you simply can't buy.
And the lagniappe for the Magic is that they will
probably end up with a better NBA coach than Billy and
at a lot better price.
Rick Pitino, Billy Donovan's mentor knows both
sides of the coin. He led Providence to the Final Four in
1987 before moving on to the New York Knicks. He left
the Big Apple for Kentucky, only to return to the NBA
with the Celtics in 1997, a move he's often questioned in
"It's very difficult because you want to try something
different and the NBA is very alluring," Pitino said. "It's
alluring economically. It's alluring because it's on TV, the
playoffs are on TV, it's very exciting. You think you want
to try it. I wanted to try it. I knew I wanted to try it ...
because I knew what it was all about."
Pitino said he told Donovan not to interview with the
Magic unless he though he was capable of taking the job.
"It's something he regrets, but it's something he has to
live with. In the end, he knew where he wanted to be."
The big winners are, of course, the GatorNation.
Ultimately there will be a provision in Donovan's set-
tlement with the Magic that will prevent Donovan from
taking a job in the NBA in the near future. That simple
clause is by it's self a great marketing toll for the Gators.
He has a contract to show his recruits that prohibits
his going to the NBA. So the Magic did the Gators a
favor by doing that.
The football-loving Gators have become basketball
crazy in recent years in large part to Donovan, who
built the program into a national powerhouse, winning
the last two national titles.
The school's bookstore, once overflowing with foot-
ball gear, is now filled with basketball championship
apparel. And football players now share the sidewalks on
campus with the school's hardwood champions.
When Donovan returns, he will earn more than foot-
ball coach Urban Meyer an unprecedented statement at
Florida. Donovan was set to sign a seven-year deal worth
approximately $3.5 million annually with Florida, a deal
that was nearly finished when he agreed to. coach the
Magic. Meyer made $2 million last season plus incen-
tives as he led his own team to the national title.
SFor Billy Donovan, we can only say that he is getting
what he says he wanted. But, it was a long round about
trip and he has paid a price to get it.

Sheffield: Control Is

Reason For Lack Of

Blacks In Baseball

Detroit Tigers DH Gary Sheffield who was suspended
for three games on Friday and fined him an undisclosed
amount for his actions in Thursday night's loss to Cleveland
says he knows why Major League Baseball is suffering with
a lack of African-Americans who play the game profession-
ally these days and it has nothing to do with lack of inter-
est or talent in the sport.
In a recent interview with GQ magazine, Sheffield said
that Hispanic players are more popular in the majors now
because they can be "controlled" easier than American-born
players of color.
"I called it years ago. What I called is that you're going
to see more black faces, but there ain't no English going to
be coming out. Sheffield told the magazine.
"Where I'm from, you can't control us. You might get a
guy to do it that way for a while because he wants to bene-
fit, but in the end, he is going to go back to being who he is.
And that's a person that you're going to talk to with respect,
you're going to talk to like a man.
According to a 2005 report by the University of Central
Florida Institute for Diversity and Ethics in Sport, only 8.5
percent of current major leaguer players are of African-
American descent the lowest percentage of black players
in the league since the report was created in the mid-1980s.
Statistics also show that Whites comprised 59.5 percent
of the pool of major league players with Latinos comprising
29.4 percent and Asians 2.4.
"These are the things my race demands. So, if you're
equally good as this Latin player, guess who's going to get
sent home? Know a lot of players that are home riow can
outplay,a lot of these guys."

ter for his 33rd two-bagger of the season. ,t moved Thomas

ior second baseman then stole third and scored on Hallberg's

The Bulldogs had an answer once again as
they tallied three runs in the bottom of the third

outs of the inning but then hit two batters and a
walked one to load the bases for Russ Sneed.

Tichina Arnold, a Veteran

Actress Reaches

for Higher Heights

By Rych McCain,
Photos 2007 by Andre' B.
Murray/ bernagency.pho-
toreflect. com
She has legions of
fans (mostly from her
work on TV), who
adore and love her
sassy brand of no-
nonsense humor.
Tichina Arnold is an
unmistakable person-
ality with talent to
spare. Whether she is
on the theater stage
live, or in front of a
TV or movie camera,
this lady's presence is
infectious. Arnold is
the product of a
Queens, New York
family where she
received her introduc-
tion to performing in
front of her family's
church congregation
at age four. Vocal and
dramatic training soon
followed. At age eight
Arnold's mom and
uncle encouraged her
to audition for her
first play, The Me
Nobody Knows, at the
Billie Holiday Theatre
in Brooklyn and she
won a part. This. was
followed by two more
local theater plays;
Hair, Romance and
Hard Times, and
Haggadah, both at the
Joseph Papp Theatre.
Soon after, Arnold
secured an agent
which led to her book-
ing bit parts in TV and
movies. Arnold land-
ed her first major fea-
ture film at age six-
teen in Little Shop Of
Horrirs, as part of a

singing trio that includ-
ed Tisha Campbell
whom she would re-
team with on "Martin"
the TV sit-com. After
traveling for several
years with the road
shows for Little Shop
Of Horrors and The
Buddy Holly Story,
Arnold landed a part on
the soap opera "Ryan's
Hope" where she was
nominated for an
Emmy. She then went
to another soap, "All
My Children." After a
string of episodic TV
roles on "The Cosby
Show" and "Law and
Order" etc., Arnold left
the big Apple and
moved to Los Angeles,
where she booked the
role of "Pam" on the
Martin Lawrence Show
two months after arriv-
ing. In 1996 Arnold
won an NAACP Best
Supporting Actress
(Comedy Series) for
the role to boot.
After a five-year run
on Martin,' more TV
appearances followed
with several feature
films including the
smash Martin
Lawrence hit Big
Momma 's House.
Arnold also found time
to hit the road on
another theater tour
with the cast of hit
musical If These Hips
Could Talk. It was dur-
ing this period in 2004
that Arnold gave birth
to her daughter with
her ex-boyfriend. She
also started her own
clothing and accessory
line. China Mloon Rags

Tichina Arnold

(www.chinamoonrag. c
om). Another line fol-
lowed called Black
Hollywood, which fea-
tures .the likeness of
prominent black enter-

tainers such as Lena
Horn and Ella
Fitzgerald. Arnold has
returned to the top of
the TV ratings again
Tichina cont'd on D-8

Party Party
Giant Magazine sponsored
one of the best promo parties of
this year Sunday, June 3, 2007 at
Club Sugar in Hollywood. The
occasion was a special tribute to
Shawn "Jay-Z" Carter and
recent Giant magazine cover girl
Rhihanna and the release of her
new album "Good Girl Gone
Bad." Neither Rihanna nor Jay-z
had much to say to the press on
the red carpet Both didn't even
bother to work the entire press
line on the red carpet. Why do
they invite the press out then
won't speak to all or most of us?
Yet if we didn't show, they'd be
bent out of shape and our readers
would not know that the party
even took place.
Knocked Up stars Seth Rogen,
Katherine Heigl, Paul Rudd,
Leslie Mann and Jason Segal.
The basic premise of this movie
is that opposites may attract but
at a cost, especially when an
unplanned pregnancy is
involved. Alison Scott (Heigl) is
a professional TV Interviewer
who has a one night stand with
Ben Stone (Rogen), an immature,

unemployed looser who is way
beneath her status. She
becomes pregnant and the
adventure begins. The begin-
ning of the movie-is extremely
silly with Ben and his house-
mate buddies (all of whom are
just as equally obnoxious and
pathetic), pulling stupid, child-
ish pranks on each other while
getting high on weed, liquor
and anything else available.
Ben and Alison go through the
adventure of trying to work
things out for the baby's sake.
After the opening stupidity
and foolishness, the film does
become entertaining. Mainly
women will like this film.
SURF'S UP starrs as the
voiceovers; Shia LaBeouf
(Cody Maverick), Jeff
Bridges (Big Z), Zooey
Deschanel (Lani Aliikai), Jon
Heder (Chicken Joe), James
Woods (Reggie Belafonte) and
Diedrich Bader (Tank Evans).
Well here we go with non-cre-
ative, predictable Hollyweird
again. First you have March of
the Penguins, which became
an unexpected hit, then Happy
Feet, which also became a hit.
So since Penguins seems to be
the current "hot" animal of
choice, here comes- SURF'S
UP, starring surfing penguins.
This is clearly a children's
animated film with a lot of
moralizing and philosophy.
The water is real as it gets as
are the characters and the
action. This should be a major
money maker for Sony as all
animated movies go because
the adults have to accompany
the children which add up to
box office and concession

Black Voices At The 2007 Cannes Film Festival

By Hazel Trice Edney,
Dwight Brown, NNPA Film

This year the Cannes
Film Festival celebrated its
60th anniversary. For the
past six decades, its roster of
international films has been
impressive, its red carpet
parade has become legend
and its ability to attract inter-
national stars has been
unmatched. What about its
ability to attract African her-
itage films, Black filmmak-
ers and Black actors in its
60th year?
In this year's official
competition section, 23
films vied for the coveted
top honor, the Palme D'Or
(Golden Palm). The equally
glamorous out-of-competi-
tion section featured 17
high-profile films, including
Ocean's 13 and Michael
Moore's controversial, med-
ical-industry documentary
It was off Cannes center
stage, however, in its presti-
gious parallel sections
where, small African her-
itage gems and glimpses of
Black life triumphed.
International Critics
Week: This parallel section
of the Cannes Film Festival
has a tradition of discovering
new talent.
Ezra: Nigerian director
Newton I. Aduaka marks an
ambitious feature-film debut

with the "factional" tale
Ezra. A child soldier named
Ezra (Mamoudou Turay
Kamara) is kidnapped by
rebel soldiers at age seven
and returns years later to
ravage his own village in
Sierra Leone. His sordid life
flashes before his eyes as he
is confronted at a Truth and
Reconciliation hearing
where his sister, Onitcha
(Mariame N'Diaye), points
an accusing finger and
reveals his violent, blood
thirsty past. The world has
learned through news
accounts that thousands of
abused and brainwashed
child soldiers have wreaked
havoc on the African conti-
nent; so this film is timely,
informative and poignant.
This humanizing, but slow-
paced story needs editing if
it is to reach a larger audi-
ence. However, its inten-
tions are noble, its themes
comprehensible and it won
the Grand Prize Etalon
D'Or De Yennenga -- at the
Burkina Faso film
festival/market FESPA-
REGARD: This section
screens feature films culled
from cinematic cultures near
and far -- by young film-
makers and seasoned mas-
ters alike.
Munyurangabo: Korean-
American director Lee Isaac
Chung eschewed traditional

techniques for his touching
docudrama Munyurangabo
(Liberation Day). He created
this insightful narrative from
a nine-page outline from
which his actors improvised
dialogue and situations.
Fifteen y6ars after the geno-
cide in Rwanda,
Munyurangabo (Jeff
Rutagengwa), a Tutsi
teenager, and his buddy
Sangwa (Eric
Ndorunkundiye), a Hutu, set
out on a journey from the
city to the countryside.
Munyurangabo is deter-
mined to kill the Hutu man
who murdered his parents,
while Sangwa yearns to
reunite with his estranged
family. Their sojourns mix
like fire and gas. Chung gets
deep emotional performanc-
es from his cast, who had
never acted before. This
meditative, existential alle-
gory received a well-
deserved, standing ovation.
NIGHT: This revered, often-
eclectic section highlights
new talent and inventive
Chop Shop: A 12-year-
old, street-smart, orphaned
Dominican youth, Alejandro
(Alejandro Polanco), works
in a Queens, New York auto
shop. He hustles potential
clients who cruise through
this notorious, warehouse-
lined district where stolen
cars are dismantled and sold

for parts. Alejandro lives
alone above the garage and
yearns to reunite with his
older sister Isamar (Isamar
Gonzales). He manages to
find her and the two dream
of opening a food truck for
the blue-collar workers in
their neighborhood. The liv-
ing isn't easy, but
Alejandro's survival
instincts pull him through.
Polanco and Gonzales
attend the same New York
City high school, and their
acting debuts are carefully
guided by director Ramin
Bahrani who shot this
endearing, diminutive, slice-
of-life drama over 30 days
during the summer of 2006.
Ocean's Thirteen: Don
Cheadle and Bemie Mac are
integral to the con artist
team that's determined to
out-maneuver a greedy Las
Vegas hotel owner (Al
Pacino) in the third chapter
of the modern Ocean's
Eleven, a remake of the
1960s classic film of the
same name that featured the
legendary Rat Pack (Sinatra,
Sammy Davis, Jr., Dean
Martin...). The first half-
hour of tedious setup gives
way to a clever ploy. that
makes this film a fun sur-
prise. George Clooney, Brad
Pitt and Don Cheadle
walked the red carpet past
the flashing light bulbs for
the Cannes' international
Go Go Tales: Pras
Michel, of the hip-hop super
star group The Fugees, adds
another credit to his grow-
ing r6sum6 (Higher Ed,
Turn It Up) as Sandman in
director Abel Ferrarra's
comic ode to New York City
nightclubs. He keeps good
company with the likes of
actors William Dafoe, Bob
Hoskins and Mathew
Modine in a film that is not
as well-focused as Ferrarra's
Bad Lieutenant or as cine-
matic as King of New York.

Mauritanian Director
Abderrahmane Sissako
(Waiting for Happiness,
winner of Cannes'
International Critics Prize in
2002 and director of last
year's social-drama
Bamako) was a juror for the
main competition. Chris
Rock appeared in a publici-
ty stunt for the upcoming
animated comedy Bee
Movie with Jerry Seinfeld.?-
Seinfeld, dressed as bee,
was lowered from a build-
ing rooftop and Rock,
who'll be the voice of
Mooseblood the Mosquito,
was part of the photo ops.
And, the Cannes 60th
anniversary poster features
actors and filmmakers
jumping up in air. Samuel
L. Jackson is dead center
and at the top, hovering'
over the gaggle of interna-
tional thespians and direc-
tors is the patron saint of
African filmmaking
(Ousmane Sembene, direc-
tor of Moolaad6 and
Guelwaar) with his hands
Cannes has spent the last
60 years bringing interna-
tional films, filmmakers and
actors to an annual forum
that's become an intemas
tional must-go, must-see
event. As it looks toward to
its next 60 years, here's hop-
ing it doesn't forget its inno-
vative past, when it rolled
out the red carpet for films
like Black Orpheus and
Carmen Jones, filmmakers
like John Singleton and
Raoul Peck and actors like
Forest Whitaker -and
Marianne Jean-Baptiste.
This 60th anniversary
could have used more direc-
tors. like Aduaka, more
actors to follow in the foot-
steps of Whitaker and
Jackson, and more films
that give voice to black peo-
ple ofNorth America, South
America, Africa and
Judging from Cannes'
past, its future looks bright.
