One Suspect Killed by


Police, the Other Arrested
A robbery suspect was shot and killed and a
female suspect has been arrested after police offi-
cers interrupted their attempt to rob Ying's Takee
Outee Restaurant at Spring Park Road and
University Boulevard. This shooting is the eighth
shooting by Jacksonville Sheriff officers this year.
Charline Denise Sharp, 31, was arrested and
charged with felony murder and armed robbery.
S According to reports, an employee of the restau-
rant was able to call the Sheriff's Office to advise
that a robbery was in process. The male suspect
started out the back door pointing a gun. An offi-
cer opened fire, said Chief of Detectives Dwain
Senterfitt. Then the suspect ran back into the
.. building and out the front door, still with his gun
drawn. At that point, Officer Clayton Short fired
Charline Sharp, Robbery Suspect shots, hitting the suspect several times. This was
Officer Short's first police involved shooting.
Charline Sharp ran out the back door and was quickly captured at a nearby gas
station. The officers located money on the ground that is believed to be the money
taken during the robbery. A second firearm was also located inside the restaurant,
which officers believe is the one that was used by Charline Sharp. The male suspect
xwas taken to Shands-Jacksonville, where he died.


Judge Said "Free The Man" for Consensual
Oral Sex; Black Attorney General Appeals

#-, ,Fraternity leaders, community leaders, celebri-
~*I ties and even former President Jimmy Carter have
opposed and are still opposing the imprisonment
of Genarlow Wilson who they say has become a
symbol for extreme cases of getting tough on sex
offenders. Wilson was ordered released from
Prison by a judge Monday who called Wilson's
S10-year sentence for having consensual oral sex
as a teen "a grave miscarriage of justice."
Wilson, who is now 21-year-old, and five other
male partygoers charged in the cases were black,
Si as were the two teenage girls involved. Wilson is,
while in high serving a 10-year mandatory sentence for having
Genarlo Wilson while ic high consensual oral sex with a 15-year-old girl in
school as a star football player con n is
and an honor stdent.2003, when he was 17. If his conviction is
upheld, he will also be placed on Georgia's sex
offender registry. At the time of his crime,
Wilson would have faced just one year in prison if he had sexual intercourse with
the girl. The "Romeo and Juliet" exception in Georgia law
also would have allowed him to avoid the sex offender Judge Continued.- A-7

Triple Murder Victims Identified;

Two Had Arrest Records

Even though there are still no arrests and no suspects, the
three victims murdered last week in the first triple murder
in Jacksonville since 2002 and one of many incidents in
the Ahmad Drive area, the three victims have been identi-
fied. They are Berthum Perty Gibson, 21 of Siskin
h Avenue, Jacksonville, Desmond Lamar Robinson, 24 of
I 26th Street in Jacksonville and Kennethia Michelle
Desmond Robinson Keenan, 21, of Tampa, Florida.
Gibson and Robinson have extensive police records.
Robinson had 17 arrests since 2001 on such charges as bat-
tery, robbery, grand theft auto, drug possession, resisting
arrest and concealing a firearm. Gibson also had arrests
dealing with drug charges and other crimes. The Ahmad
Drive neighborhood has had 39 calls to the police since
January, 2007.
Pastor George Harvey of Mount Charity Missionary
Baptist Church of the Springfield area placed a memorial
at the slaying site as he added their names to his "well
Berthum Gibson kept" list of unsolved murders in Jacksonville. The
Sheriff's Office is still asking for community support in
helping to solve and stop violent crimes in Jacksonville.

Jury Vote Durousseau


Guilty on First Trial

S Paul Durousseau, a 36-year-old former taxi cab driver, has
been accused of killing seven women, six in Jacksonville and
S one in Georgia. He admitted to having a sexual relationship
._i'ir with the women but said he did not kill them. According to
records, Durousseau did not admit to having sex with the
.iJ womenn but said he lied because he felt intimidated.
-H During, the final period of Durousseau's ten-day trial, he
. took the stand in his own defense, in an effort to convince the
Paul Durousseau
jury of his innocence. However, the jury of seven women and
five men deliberated for 8 1/2 hours and finally concluded that
Durousseau was guilty of premeditated first degree murder and
felony first degree murder as well as sexual battery and rob-
bery. This was Durousseau's first trial and was for the rape and
slaying of Tyresa Mack, a 24-year-old mother of three chil-
dren. Ms. Mack was killed in 1999. During that period,
.: Durousseau and Mack lived in the same area. Prosecutors
Tyresa Mack relied basically on DNA evidence and similarities in other
murders to prove their case where more than 300 exhibits were presented and about
70 witness. Attorneys for Durousseau tried to convince the jury that Durousseau did

The state lawmakers are seeking to have a plan in place in two weeks that will
cut property taxes, cap future. growth and change homestead taxes that has grown
148% over the past.decade. Such a change will help some and hurt others. The
real changes will have to be voted upon. On the real positive side, the lawmakers

In President George W
Bush's May 31st National
Child's Day proclamation, he
pledged to provide our chil-
dren "with the care, protection
and education they deserve."
He also called upon "citi-
zens to celebrate National
Child's Day with the appropri-
ate ceremonies and activities."
Over the last six and a half
years, I have heard the
President make similar fine
expressions of his commit-
ment to children. However
where I grew up my parents
and community co-parents
drew distinctions between say-
ing and doing. The President
has talked a lot about children
but his record offers little to
celebrate as he leaves millions
of children behind in his poli-
cies and budget choices.
Our children have lost
ground during Mr. Bush's time
in office. The United States
lags behind most industrial-
ized democracies in infant
mortality and providing health
insurance to all children. Nine
million children in America
are without health insurance.
As Congress considers reau-
thorization of the State
Children's Health Insurance
Program (SCHIP), Mr. Bush
has indicated that he does not
intend to support increased
funding levels that would
extend health care coverage to
the millions of children cur-


I'll E FMTM STA


rently uninsured. In fact, his
budget would result in one to
two million currently insured'
children losing SCHIP .cover-
age. At the Children's Defense
Fund we urge the President to
go beyond support for SCHIP
and embrace the provisions the
All Healthy Children Act (S.
1564/H.R. 1688) that would
guarantee health care for all
children and pregnant women.
The President should take
action to protect children
where he has fallen short in
other areas. The Bush
Administration must marshal
the vast resources of the gov-
ernment to stem the flow of
tens of thousands of impover-
ished children through
America's Cradle to Prison
Pipeline leading to the volumi-
nous incarceration of poor
Black and Latino children arid
teens. The prison pipeline is
made up of an array of social
and economic factors includ-
ing the lack of access to health
and mental health care, poor
schools and broken child wel-
fare and juvenile justice sys-
tems. These factors can be
diminished by more effective
and increased national invest-
ments in children. In addition
to ensuring that all children
receive health care, the
President needs to back up his
no child left behind legislation
with resources to increase the
pool of teachers and reduce

An Appropriate Celebration of National
Child's Day

class sizes. He needs to make
Head Start and Early Head
Start available to all eligible
children so they have a chance
to get ready for school. And he
can order the Justice
Department to eliminate racial
inequities in the administration
of juvenile justice.
President Bush's response
to the Hurricane Katrina disas-
ter in 2005 was appalling.
Thousands of children contin-
ue to experience unimaginable
levels of loss, trauma and dis-
location. As recently as March
this year, about 100,000 chil-
dren along the Gulf Coast still
did not live where they did
before the hurricane struck.
Too many remain packed into
"temporary," overcrowded
FEMA trailers that can be
blown away in the next big
storm and are not safe and
healthy long term places for
children to live. Thousands of
children have fallen desperate-
ly behind educationally while
qualified teachers, textbooks
and supplies are in drastically
short supply. The President
promised bold action in the
immediate aftermath of the
storm and in his own words,
committed "to help the citizens
of the Gulf Coast to overcome
this disaster, put their lives
back together, and rebuild their
communities." These words
are a faint echo to Katrina's
children who are still waiting
for their country to come to
their rescue.
When he took office, Mr.
Bush declared himself a "com-
passionate conservative." The
American people are still wait-


ing for a clear demonstration
of what compassion means in
that context. It seems that Mr.
Bush has not yet grasped that
as the president of our nation
and head of the government,
just and competent gover-
nance is required. We see a
President who appears before
backdrops of uniformed sol-
diers and Marines, law
enforcement officers and pre-
screened audiences of loyalists
to eliminate the risk that his
policies might be questioned.
These carefully orchestrated
set pieces are emblematic of a
President who is insulated
from some of our nation's
most pressing social concerns
like the millions of children
who must go without health
and mental health care, proper
nutrition, quality education
and adequate housing. He
doesn't seem to be aware of the
poor children who grow up on
an uneven playing field with
scant opportunity to develop
and thrive. Surely in a $2.9 tril-
lion federal budget, the
President can find the means
to make children safe from the
terrors of poverty, sickness,
hunger and homelessness and
secure America's future. Every
dollar invested in children is
returned many times over in
the development of produc-
tive, contributing adults who
raise families and build
stronger communities. If the
President would practice what
he preaches and provide some
national leadership in that
direction, we might have more
to celebrate next National
Child's Day.

Little Angels When God calls lhtle children
to dwell with Him above, We mortals some-
time question the wisdom of His love. For no
1m heartache compares with the death of one
small child, who does so much to make oyr world seem wonderful
and mild. Perhaps God tires of calling the aged to his fold, so He picks
a rosebud before it can grow old. God knows how much we need them
and so He takes but few, to make the land of Heaven more beautiful
to view. Believing this is difficult still somehow we must try, the sad-
dest word mankind knows will always be "good bye." So when a lit-
tle child departs, we who are left behind, must realize God loves chil-
dren, Angels are hard to find.

hold a funeral. You can hold a

"There's Always Something

Happening On The First Coast"
Crossing the Colorline Film Premier at The Ritz
Celebrating Jacksonville's Rich African American
History
Perhaps if you are a newcomer to the First Coast you may
be unaware of the rich African American history in this area.
At any rate it was quite a celebration recently at The Ritz
Theatre & LaVilla Museum when the first film segment of
Crossing the Colorline Oral History Project was shown.
Under the auspices of the Ritz Theatre & LaVilla
Museum and funding from the State of Florida, First Coast
natives- Retired Museum Administrator/Curator Dr.
Rowena Rhodes Stewart and Museum consultant Mrs.
Patricia Moman in collaboration with film maker Rick
Conners brought to life the reflections of African American
who have lived the history of Jacksonville.
How privileged we are that Dr. Stewart the Project's
Manager and Mrs. Moman Bell, the Project's Consultant
both with broad historical museum experiences outside of
Jacksonville have both returned home. The First Coast is
now benefiting from their broad experiences. When you visit
the A.M.E. Church's Museum in Philadelphia, the
MOTOWN Museum in Detroit and the Jazz Museum in
Kansas City you see the genius of Jacksonville native Dr.
Rowena Stewart.
The Crossing the Colorline Project involved contacting
descendents of pioneer First Coast families, local historians
and those who were eyewitnesses to local history. The inter-
views were filmed and with expert editing the project team
took excerpts from each interview to form a story. It is pure
'genius' as so many of the stories are only documented with
this film.
After 'High Tea', the film was shown for the very first
time to the participants and their special guests. Each film
participant was presented a personal copy of their personal
interview followed by each being photographed. It was his-
toric and so very heartwarming!
In addition to those participants shown those who partic-
ipated in group or organizational interviews were also pre-
sented. They were: Clarence Von Bostick, Mrs. Gertrude
Hoffman Peele, Mrs. Vera Cruse, Mrs. JuCoby Pittman-
Peele and Rodney Hurst.

0 Hurricane Satellite Failure?


Jacksonville's Celebration to be held on June 30th


One Hundred and forty
two years old. Juneteehth is
the oldest known nationally
celebrated commemoration
of the ending of slavery in-
the United States.
It was June 19th, 1865
when news reached,.
Galveston, Texas that the
war had ended. On that day
Union Major General
Gordon Granger read
General Order #3 to the
people of Galveston.
General Order #3 stated
"The people of Texas are
informed that, in accordance
with a proclamation from
the Executive of.the United
States, all slaves are free.
This involves an absolute
equality of personal rights
and rights of property
between former masters and
slaves, and the connection
heretofore existing between
them becomes that between
employer and hired labor.
The freedmen are advised to
remain quietly at their pres-
ent homes and work for
wages. They are informed
that they will not be allowed
to collect at military posts
and that they will not be
supported in idleness either
there or elsewhere." The fol-
lowing year, large celebra-
tions took place on June 19
and continued regularly into
the early 20th century.

Juneteenth Celebration Continues Satellite Could Fail

The state of Texas made
Juneteenth an official holi-
day on Jan. 1, 1980, and
became the first to grant it
government recognition.
Several states have since
issued proclamations recog-
nizing the holiday, but the
Lone Star State remains
alone in granting it full state
holiday status, a day when
government employees
have the day off.
Nonetheless, supporters and
celebrants of Juneteenth
continue to grow in number
and in diversity; today,
Juneteenth is promoted not
only as a commemoration
of African-American free-
dom, but as an example and
encouragement of self-
development and respect
for all cultures.


Today Juneteenth com-
memorates African
American freedom and
emphasizes education and
achievement. It is a day, a
week, and in some areas a
month marked with celebra-
tions, guest speakers, pic-
nics and family gatherings.
It is a time for reflection
and rejoicing. It is a time for
assessment, self-improve-
ment and for planning the
future. Its growing popular-
ity signifies a level of matu-
rity and dignity in America
long over due. In cities
across the country, people
of all races, nationalities
and religions are joining
hands to truthfully acknowl-
edge a period in our history
that shaped and continues to
influence our society today.


With hurricane season
less than two weeks old, we
learn that an aging weather
satellite called QuickScat
- crucial to accurate predic-
tions on the intensity and
path of hurricanes could.fail
at any moment.
Worse yet, plans to
launch a replacement have
been pushed back seven
years to 2016.
If the satellite faltered,
experts estimate that the
accuracy of two-day fore-
casts could suffer by 10 per-
cent and three-day forecasts
by 16 percent, which could
translate into miles of coast-
line and the difference
between a city being evacu-
ated or not.
"We would go blind. It
would be significantly haz-


ardous," said Wayne
Sallaide, emergency manag-
er in Charlotte County,
which was hit hard by
Hurricane Charley in 2004.
A NOAA spokesman
disputed that, saying alter-
natives such as using data
from other satellites would
help diminish any increased
uncertainty coming from
the loss of QuikScat.
While the magnitude of
the problem can be argued,
most scientists agree that if
QuikScat failed, they would
have less accurate data.
Bill Proenza, director of
the National Hurricane
Center in Miami, said
authorities "may have to err
on the side of caution" in
future forecasts.
That means "more peo-

pie disrupted, and more
impact on the economy,"
Proenza said. "On the other
hand, we have to err on the
side of the protection of
life. And that's how we
would handle it."
Last year, forecasts were
off an average of 111 miles
two days in advance, a fig-
ure that has been cut in half
over the past 15 years. But
experts said that could grow
10 percent to 122 miles if
the satellite is lost, causing
the "cone of error" well
known to coastal residents
to expand.
Some scientists also
complain that the technolo-
gy planned for the replace-
ment satellite is less precise
for hurricane forecasting
than what is currently fly-
ing.
QuikScat, was launched
in 1999 and designed to last
two to three years, provides
key data on wind speed and
direction over the ocean.

Voting Rights in DC Moves Closer
Rt 9 I


The D.C. voting rights bill has won
another victory. The Senate Homeland
Security and Government Affairs
Committee approved the legislation this
morning by a vote of 9 to 1.
Virginia's Sen. John Warner (R), cast the
dissenting vote, but in an encouraging sign
for advocates, three Republicans voted in
favor of giving the District a full voting
member in the House:
Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman (I-Conn.),
chairman of the committee, said he was


"thrilled" by the backing for the bill, which
he said would correct a "profound inequity."
He said he hoped the legislation would be
taken up by the full Senate in July. *
But Lieberman acknowledged it was
unclear whether supporters could muster the
60 votes needed to avoid a possible fili-
buster. The White House and the Senate
Republican leader, Mitch McConnell (R-
Ky), oppose the bill.
"We've got a fight on the floor to get 60
votes," Lieberman said.

Biden Chides Congressmen who

Don't Know There are 'Decent' and

'Accomplished' Black Business People


By. Hazel Trice Edney
NNPA D.C. Correspondent
U. S. Sen. Joe Biden (D-Del.), the only
presidential candidate to attend the 100
Black Men of America's 21st Annual
Conference in Las Vegas last week, said in a
meeting with the organization's executive
committee that most members of Congress


who have few
Blacks in their dis-
tricts "don't know
that there is a
decent stream of
accomplished busi-
ness men and
women in the
Black community."

tions from the executives and several mem-
bers of the 100 about the inability or unwill-
ingness of Congress to pass key legislation
for the progress of African-Americans,
Biden said, "Look guys, most of the guys
and women in the United States Congress
who don't come from communities with
broader Black populations; they don't know
that.there is a decent stream of accomplished
business men and women in the Black com-
munity out there. They don't know it. Y'all
are a secret. The only White boy that figured
it out was Clinton," he said to jovial laugh-
ter from the group. "I'm not joking! I'm not
joking!" he said.
Biden, who lives in the 58 percent Black
city ofWilmington, Del., was addressing the
informal small group session on mostly
issues of education and health care during
the group's 21st Annual Convention in Las
Vegas. Speaking more candidly than normal
because he apparently thought there was "no
press" in the room; he was encouraging the
group to raise the organization's profile. The
small session was held in the press room at
the event.
Biden says that children often won't do
well in life "until they realize something else
is out there. They realize it just by seeing it.
They figure it out," he says. He said among


the keys to better quality education is good
teachers and longer school hours.
He says his health care plan would have
a $22 billion price tag, but would assure that
"every single, solitary child in America" has
insurance.
Biden's statement about his colleagues'
lack of knowledge about 'decent' Black busi-
ness men and

- Sen. Joe Biden harkened back to
his comment about
his colleague, Sen.
Barack Obama, earlier this year. Black lead-
ers roundly criticized Biden for describing
Obama as "articulate" and "clean".
Leading Democratic candidates Hillary
Clinton and Barack Obama had also been
invited among other candidates, but did not
attend. The 100 is a non-profit tax exempt
organization with'106 chapters throughout
the U. S. Chairman Albert E. Dotson, Jr. and
former chairman Thomas Dortch were care-
ful to state that there would be no endorse-
ment of any political candidates. IRS regula-
tions prohibit 501C3 tax exempt organiza-
tions from making political endorsements.
But they are allowed to hold educational
forums, such as they did with Biden.
Presidential candidates are being strong-
ly criticized by Black political pundits for
focusing so much on the war that they
appear to be neglecting urban issues and
issues that disparately affect Black people.
U. S. Rep. John Conyers, chairnian of the
House Judiciary Committee, who attended
the organization's convention the day after
Biden was to receive the coveted "Man of
the Year" award.
He shook his head when asked if he
agreed with Biden's assessment about mem-
bers of Congress. "There he goes again,"
Conyers said. "He just doesn't get it."


By. Hazel Trice Edney
NNPA Washington Correspondent
NAACP Chairman Julian Bond says the
98-year-old organization, which confirmed
last week that it is cutting 40 percent of the
staff at its Baltimore headquarters, is appeal-
ing for pulllic help.
"We've asked our regular
supporters to redouble their con-
tributions and are asking anyone
who has benefited from the
work of the NAACP to 'show
some love' by.putting a check in
the mail and becoming a mem-
ber," Bond told the NNPA News
Service this week.
But, that's not all. He says
the organization has also "called
upon our board members and
SCF Trustees to give or get 'Julial
$15,000 each by the year's end.
That will put more than $1 mil-
lion in our treasury," he says. "We have
asked our units local branches and state
conferences to hold fundraisers and set up
membership drives."
NAACP leaders have not said exactly
how many people will be laid off. However,
the Baltimore staff will be reduced from 119
members to 70 members through both lay-
offs and attrition, Dennis Hayes, the
NAACP's interim president and CEO, told
the Baltimore Sun. Hayes also said that the
organization has used $10 million in reserve
funds over the past three years in order to
cover shortfalls.
Because of the crisis in finances, the
national headquarters is also temporarily
closing at least seven regional offices.
The financial situation is yet another


controversy for the nation's leading civil
rights organization, only four months after
former President and CEO Bruce Gordon
suddenly resigned after only 19 months in
office. He cited differences with the
NAACP's 64 member board. Gordon could
not be reached for comment by NNPA dead-
line.
"We are right-sizing our
Organization to meet present cir-
.cumstances," Hayes told the
Sun. "We had the unexpected
departure of our CEO at a time
when we were already without a
chief development officer. So,
understandably, we have to
regenerate our revenue:
machine, our fundraising'
machine, to get us to where we
Bond should have been."

The first known celebration of Father's Day was on July 5. 1908 in Fainmont, West Virginia, where
it \as conmmemorated at William Memorial Methodist Episcopal Church South now known as
Central United Methodist Church. Grace Golden Clayton is believed to have suggested it to her pas-
tor after a deadly explosion in nearby Nlonongah in December, killing 361 men.
It was also during a sermon in 1909 that Sonora Smart Dodd became inspired by Mother's Day.
After the death of her mother, Sonora and her siblings were raised by their father William Jackson
Smart, a Civil War veteran. Sonora \wanted to show ho\\ thankful she was to her father and. because
William was born in June, she workedd to have the first Father's Day celebrated on June 19. 1910.
In 1924, President Coolidge reconunended that Father's Day become a national holida-. President
Johunson designated the third Sunday of June to be Father's Day in 1966. It w\as not until 1972 that

CELEBRATE JUNETEENTH


KNOW THE HISTORICAL FACTS ~


What is Juneteenth?
Juneteenth is the oldest
known celebration of the
ending of slavery. Dating
back to 1865, it was on
June 19th that the Union
soldiers, led by Major
General Gordon Granger,


and a half year delay in the
receipt of this important
news have yielded several
versions that have been
handed down through the
years. Often told is the
story of a messenger who
was murdered on his way


Major General Gordon Granger


landed at Galveston, Texas
with news that the war had
ended and that all slaves
were now free. Note that
this was two and a half
years after President
Lincoln's Emancipation
Proclamation which had
become official January 1,
1863. The Emancipation
Proclamation had little
iinpact on the Texans due
to the minimal number of
Union troops to enforce the
new Executive order.
However, with the surren-
der of General Lee in April
of 1865, and the arrival of
General Granger's regi-
ment, the forces were final-
ly strong enough to influ-.
ence and overcome the
resistance.
Later attempts to
explain this two JUNE]


to Texas with the news of
freedom. Another, is that
the news was deliberately
withheld by the slave mas-
ters to maintain the labor
force on the plantations.
And still another, is that
federal troops actually
waited for the slave owners
to reap the benefits of one
last cotton harvest before
going to Texas to enforce
the Emancipation
Proclamation. All or nei-
ther could be true. For
whatever the reason, con-
ditions in Texas remained
status quo well beyond
what was statutory.

General Order Number 3
One of General
Granger's first orders of
business was to read to the
FEENTH continued on B5


people of Texas, General
Order Number 3 which
began most significantly
with:
"The people of Texas
are informed that in accor-
dance with a Proclamation
from the Executive of the
United States, all slaves are
free. This involves an
absolute equality of rights
and rights of property
between former masters,
and slaves, and the connec-
tion heretofore existing
between them becomes
that between employer and
free laborer."
The reactions to this
profound news ranged'
from pure shock to imme-
diate jubilation. While
many lingered to learn of
this new employer to
employee relationship,
many left before these
offers were completely off
the lips of their former
masters attesting to the
varying conditions on the
plantations and the realiza-
tion of freedom. Even with
nowhere to go, many felt
that leaving the plantation
would be their first grasp
of freedom. North was a
logical destination and for
many it represented true
freedom, while the desire
to reach family members in
neighboring states drove
the some into Louisiana,
Arkansas and Oklahoma.
Settling into these new
areas as free men and
women brought on new
realities and the challenges
of establishing a heretofore
nonexistent status for black
people in America.
Recounting the memo-
ries of that great day in
June of 1865 and its festiv-
ities would serve as moti-
vation as well as a release
from the growing pressures
encountered in their new
territory. The celebration


5th Annual Juneteenth Frederick Douglass
Freedom March Scheduled for the "19th of June"
in Washington, DC. Juneteenth Frederick
Douglass Freedom March Brings Attention to
Poor Pain Management in African-Americans


of June 19th was coined
"Juneteenth" and grew
with more participation
from descendants. The
Juneteenth celebration was
a time for reassuring each
other, for praying and for
gathering remaining family


members. Juneteenth con-
tinued to be highly revered
in Texas decades later, with
many former slaves and
descendants making an
annual pilgrimage back to
Galveston on this date.

How Can I Find Government Grants for


Students?


Finding And Applying
For Government
Grants
By Neal Brown

According to a U.S.
government website, there
are $400 billion in grants
currently available in over
1000 different programs.
Naturally with such a huge
amount finding a program
that you or your company
might qualify for is a huge
task.
This article will present
some resources and strate-
gies to locate and apply for
grant. programs that you
may be qualified for.

Where To Find Grants
The single best source
for finding grant opportiu-
nities is the government
site at www.grants.gov.
There are four ways to
search for grants on this


website. The first way is a
basic search. This enables
you to search by a key-
word, funding opportunity
number, or CFDA number.
The CFDA stands for
Catalog of Federal
Domestic Assistance. This
number and the funding
opportunity number are
used for specific grants.
Once you have found a
grant program, write these
numbers down so that you
will be able to return to the
details of that grant quick-
ly using one of these num-
bers.

The second type of search
is by category.
There are 21 different
categories that you can
search by including arts,
employment, environment,
health, and others. The
third way to search is by
government agency. There


are at least 40 agencies
offering grants.
The last way is. the
advanced search which
allows you to search by
keyword plus the days
since posted, agency, cate-
gory, eligibility and more.
You can also be emailed
automatically when grants
in a particular opportunity
number category are post-
ed.

Applying For Grants
Once you have the
Funding Opportunity
and/or CFDA number of
the grant for which you
want to apply, you need it
to download a grant appli-
cation and apply for a
grant. Be sure to follow the
instructions exactly and
review the application sev-
eral times for complete-
ness.
You must register to


create a Grants.gov
account and receive
approval from your organi-
zation to submit applica-
tions. This also provides
you with the ability to
track your application sta-
tus.
When you are ready to
submit the completed
application, you will then
need to log into Grants.gov
using the usemame and
password you entered
when you registered with.
Once you have submit-
ted an application, you can
check the status of your
application submission.
You can identify your
application by CFDA
Number, Funding
Opportunity Number,
Competition ID, -and/or
Grants.gov Tracking
Number.
There are many other
resources for locating gov-


emrnment grants at www.us-
government-grants.info.
Neal Brown has an
MBA in financial manage-
ment. http://www.us-gov-
ernment-grants.info has
more resources to locate
grants.

Juneteenth

Fun
Juneteenth Festivities and
Food
A range of activities
were provided to entertain
the masses, many of which
continue in tradition today.
Rodeos, fishing, barbecu-
ing and baseball are just a
few of the typical
Juneteenth activities you
may witness today.
Juneteenth almost always
focused on education and
self improvement. Thus
often guest speakers are
brought in and the elders
are called upon to recount
the events of the past:


lished as the center of
attention at Juneteenth cel-
ebrations. Food was abun-
dant because everyone pre-
pared a special dish. Meats
such as lamb, pork and
beef which not available
everyday were brought on
this special occasion. A
true Juneteenth celebra-
tions left visitors well sat-
isfied and with enough
conversation to last until
the next.
Dress was also an
important element in early
Juneteenth customs and is
often still taken seriously,
particularly by the direct
descendants who can make
the connection to this tradi-
tion's roots. During slavery
there were laws on the
books in many areas that
prohibited or limited the


Juneteenth festivities and food


Prayer services were also a
major part of these celebra-
tions.
Certain foods became
popular and subsequently
synonymous with
Juneteenth celebrations
such as strawberry soda-
pop. More traditional and
just as popular was the bar-
becuing, through which
Juneteenth participants
could share in the spirit
and aromas that their
ancestors the newly
emancipated African
Americans, would have
experienced during their
ceremonies. Hence, the
barbecue pit is often estab-


dressing of slaves. During
the initial days of the
emancipation celebrations,
there are accounts of slaves
tossing their ragged gar-
ments into the creeks and
rivers to adorn clothing
taken from the plantations
belonging to their former
masters.
In the early years, little
interest existed outside the
African American commu-
nity in-participation in the
celebrations. In some
cases, there was outwardly
exhibited resistance by
barring the use of public
property for the festivities.


Arrival offreedmen and their families at Baltimore, Maryland, an every day


scene.
Most of the festivities
found themselves out in
rural areas around rivers
and creeks that could pro-
vide for additional activi-
ties such as fishing; horse-
back riding and picnics.
Often the church grounds
was the site for such activ-
ities. Eventually, as
African Americans became
land owners, land was
donated and dedicated for
these festivities. One of the
earliest documented land
purchases in the name of
Juneteenth was organized
by Rev. Jack Yates. This
fund-raising effort yielded
$1000 and the purchase of
Emancipation Park in
Houston, Texas. In Mexia,
the local Juneteenth organ-
ization purchased Booker
T. Washington Park, which
had become the Juneteenth
celebration site in 1898.
There are accounts of
Juneteenth activities being
interrupted and halted by
white landowners demand-
ing that their laborers
return to work. However, it
seems most allowed their
workers the day off and
some even made donations
of food and money.
For decades these
annual celebrations flour-
ished, growing continuous-
ly with each passing year.


In Booker T. Washington
Park, as .many as 20,000
African Americans once
flowed through during the
course of a week, making
the celebration one of the
state's largest.

J une t e e n t h
Celebrations Decline
Economic and cultural
forces provided for a
decline in Juneteenth
activities and partici-
pants beginning in the
early 1900's. Classroom
and textbook education
in lieu of traditional
home and family-taught
practices stifled the
interest of the youth due
to less emphasis and
detail on the activities of
former slaves.
Classroom text books
proclaimed Lincoln's


Emancipation
Proclamation of January
1, 1863 as the date sig,
naling the ending of
slavery and little or
nothing on the impact of
General Granger's
arrival on June 19th.
The Depression forced
many people of the
farms and into the cities
to find work. In these
urban environments,
employers were less
eager to grant leaves t
celebrate this date. Thus,
unless June 19th fell on a
weekend or holiday,
there were very few par-
ticipants available. July
4th was the already
e s t a b i s h e d
Independence holiday
and a rise in patriotism
steered more toward this
celebration.

JUNETEENTH continued from B5
Resurgence
The Civil Rights movement of the 50's and 60's
yielded both positive and negative results for the
Juneteenth celebrations. While it pulled many of the
African American youth away and into the struggle
for racial equality, many linked these struggles to
the historical struggles of their ancestors. This was
evidenced by student demonstrators involved in the
Atlanta civil rights campaign in the early 1960's,
whom wore Juneteefith freedom buttons. Again in
1968, Juneteenth received another strong resurgence
through Poor Peoples March to Washington D.C..
Rev. Ralph Abernathy's call for people all races,
creeds, economic levels and professions to come to
Washington to show support for the poor. Many of
these attendees returned home and initiated
Juneteenth celebrations in areas previously absent of
such activity. In fact, two of the largest Juneteenth
celebrations founded after this March are now held
in Milwaukee and Minneapolis.

Texas Blazes the Trail
On January 1, 1980,
Juneteenth became an official
state holiday through the .
efforts of Al Edwards, an
African American state legis- t ..
lator. The successful passage
of this bill marked Juneteenth
as the first emancipation cele-
bration granted official state
recognition. Representative Rep.Al Edwards
Edwards has since actively sought to spread the
observance of Juneteenth all across America.

Juneteenth In Modern Times
Throughout the 80's and 90's Juneteenth has
continued to enjoy a growing and healthy interest
from communities and organizations throughout the
country. Institutions such as the Smithsonian, the
Henry Ford Museum and others have begun spon-
soring Juneteenth-centered activities. In recent
years, a number of National Juneteenth
Organizations have arisen to take their place along
side older organizations all with the mission to
promote and cultivate knowledge and appreciation
of African American history and culture.
Juneteenth today, celebrates African American
freedom while encouraging self-development and
respect for all cultures. As it takes on a more nation-
al and even global perspective, the events of 1865 in,
Texas are not forgotten, for all of the roots tie back
to this fertile soil from which a national day of pride
is growing. The future of Juneteenth looks bright as
the number of cities and states come on board and
form local committees and organizations to coordi-
nate the activities.

Rev. Dr. James Sampson New Pres.

Florida General Baptist Convention

The Rev. James B. Sampson, pastor of First New Zion
Missionary Baptist Church in Jacksonville, has been
installed as the president of the Florida General Baptist
Convention, the organization announced on last Saturday.
He is the third
Jacksonville pastor to lead
the group in its 132-year his- ,,
tory and the first in 30 years
to do so, the statement said.
The.-convention is the ..,
Florida chapter of the
National Baptist Convention
USA, which reports a mem-
bership of 7.5 million
nationally.
Dr. Sampson was elected
president of the state con-
vention in April.
The installation ceremo-
ny was held at Abyssinia The Rev. Dr. James B. Sampson
Missionary Baptist Church
in Jacksonville.
As a tribute to her husband, Mrs. Sheila Sampson penned
a poem which was printed in the program. We have reprint-
ed it below


To: President Sampson
Black Man; God's Man

He stands tall and strong.
His skin is black as the midnight.
His back is straight, shoulders up,
chest out, his head lifted high.
He walks like none other
with pride and confidence
as the African King that strides.
He's a Black Man; God's Man.
God made him perfect,
his eyes are dark and deep,
so deep they touch your soul.
His nose is wide, his lips are thick,
his hair is kinky, his feet are rough,
but his hands are soft and gentle.
His voice like thunder,
strong, deep and powerful,
when he speaks he draws attention,.
for he speaks with authority,
with words of wisdom, knowledge
and understanding from God his cre-
ator, he's a Black Man; God's Man.
As Solomon, he is despised
because of his blackness,
because the sun has sat upon him.
He knows from whence he come
and he knows where he's going.
He knows his Lord and Saviour
Jesus Christ who has instilled in him
truth and righteousness.
He stands, some times alone,
misunderstood, and falsely accused.
But to know him is to love him,
for he is known for his acts of love
and kindness toward all mankind.
Some fear him, but I love him and
I understand it's nature to be
bold, courageous and out spoken;
that's how God made him.
For you see,
he's a Black Man, God's Man.

Could a Similar Plan Work in Duval County?


A Ten-Year Plan to End Homelessness:

Guilford County, NC's Plan Revealed


By. Jeanna Covington
Special from the Carolina Peacemaker
Editor's Note: While this article does not address
Jacksonville's problems with homeless folks. The character-
istics of the problems are similar regardless of the location.
The actions of Guilford County are to be commended, not
because they are sure solutions, but because the County rec-
ognizes that forcing homeless people from one section of
town to another is not a solution, and this is an effort to find
one.
(NNPA) The Ten Year Plan to End Homelessness in
Guilford County was unveiled Monday in Jamestown, and
according to executive director of the U.S. Interagency
Council on Homelessness, Philip Mangano, it will have a
national significance.
"There are many more Guilford Counties in our country
than there are New York's, and San Francisco's and
Chicago's," Mangano said during the unveiling presentation
of the Ten Year Plan to End Chronic Homelessness last
week. Mangano was referring to other areas in the nation
similar to Guilford County in size, demographics and home-
lessness.
"This plan is going to influence and be a model for other
cities all across the country." The program was held in the
auditorium of the Percy H. Sears Applied Technology build-
ing at Guilford Technical Community College in
Jamestown.
Over the past year, the Guilford County Task Force to
End Homelessness, along with numerous community volun-
teers, have spent hundreds of hours gathering data on home-
lessness in Guilford County and reviewing ten year plans
that are currently used in other communities across the
nation. Town hall meetings and focus groups were held, sur-
veys were conducted, and homeless individuals were inter-
viewed throughout the Task Force's process.
According to the Task Force, there are 300 other commu-
nities committed to tackling homelessness, including New
York, Denver, San Francisco, Portland, Asheville and
Raleigh.
The Ten Year Plan to End Chronic Homelessness in
Guilford County "has all of the ingredients of the plans that
are making a difference in other cities," Mangano, charis-
matic speaker of the event, told the Carolina Peacemaker
following the program.
Donna Newton, Ed Kitchen and members of the Guilford
County Task Force to End Homelessness presented the plan
Monday evening to more than 40 community members, vol-
unteers and leaders. Others in attendance included the chair
of the Guilford County Board of Commissioners, Paul
Gibson; High Point Mayor Pro-Tem John Faircloth;
Greensboro Mayor Keith Holliday; and U.S. Rep. Howard
Coble.
"We are about to embark on a truly remarkable journey,
one which will make significant life changing actions to our
community members, both those who are homeless and oth-
ers," said Gibson.
The plan is-targeted toward helping chronically homeless
individuals achieve stability in housing, which would
decrease usage ofexisting resources and make resources
more available to others including non-chronic homeless
people.
"Our research shows that the most successful approaches
in other communities focus on helping chronically homeless
persons achieve stability in housing," said Newton. "This
decreases their high usage of existing community resources
and makes resources more available to others."


Chronically homeless is defined by the Task Force as "an
unaccompanied individual with a disabling condition who
has been continuously homeless for one year or more or who
has had four or more episodes of homelessness in the past
three years."
According to the Task Force, more than 1,100 people
were homeless on Jan. 24, 2007 in Guilford County, and
more than 200 of those people were chronically homeless.
The Task Force says most long-term chronic homeless
are disabled by mental or physical illnesses or substance
abuse.
The two major strategic areas of the plan are housing and
preventive and supportive services.
The plan outlines how to address various identified needs
for the homeless in order to end homelessness in Guilford
County by 2016. Methods include supportive housing; a
reentry plan that leads to stable housing for those released
from prison, hospital, mental health care or foster care;
enhanced mental health and substance abuse services; and
job placement.
The plan also compares differences in cost for the use of
community services such as emergency rooms and jails, and
other criminal justice, health and mental health systems ver-
sus that of permanent supportive housing.
For example, according to the 10-year plan, the typical
cost per bed per night in permanent supportive housing is
$36.50, while an average cost per bed per night in jail is
$70.00 and $500.00 in a hospital.
"The cost of doing nothing...is very expensive," said
Mangano.
How the various services and programs will be paid for
is not outlined in the proposal.
Billie Pierce, Director of the Guilford Center, announced
during the program that the North Carolina Department of
Health and Human Services awarded the Guilford Center
$644,280 over a 26-month period.
"This grant funds a community-based housing support
team to work with homeless individuals with mental illness
and substance abuse. Family Service of the Piedmont will be
the lead agency for this project," said Pierce.
Guilford Center also received another grant from the
department of almost $300,000 for 10 apartments to be allot-
ted for consumers who are being diverted from hospitaliza-
tion.
Said Pierce, "The Guilford Center is excited to make this
announcement in conjunction with the unveiling of the 10-
year plan, as the two projects are committed to working
closely together."

Port Elizabeth's Mayor Visits Jacksonville
Jacksonville, Fl Nondumiso Maphazi, Port
Elizabeth, South Africa's first female mayor left
Thursday after a 4 day exposure to Jacksonville.
Jacksonville and Port Elizabeth have been sister cities
since February 2000.
With South Africa hosting both the soccer
Confederation Cup in 2009 and World Cup in 2010. The
conversation at a Jacksonville Regional Chamber of
Chamber breakfast Tuesday drifted to Super Bowl
XXXIX. Facing mounting skepticism and concerns of
overcrowding, the city offered a unique solution putting
hotels on cruise ships, docked along the St. Johns River.
Maphazi said such an idea was a possibility for Port

Youngsters Who're Unfit for the Military
Avoid Service, but Still Risk Their Lives

Now, this is scary. Time was the military used to be the
place where young people who didn't quite have the grades
or the money to get into college, or who were simply trying
to carve out some direction in their lives, could use it a
means of getting a leg up on some sort of future. But despite
not being an ideal option, the truth is that many youths --
and black youths in particular -- have managed to success-
fully use the military as a path toward overcoming false
starts or less-than-privileged beginnings.
But now, it seems that the prospect of being killed or maimed in an unjust war like
the one we're in now isn't the only thing that is making it hard for military recruiters
to get youths to sign up.
What's also making that job tough is that scores of young people -- and by this, I
mean kids aged 17 to 24 -- are already ruining their lives to the point where they can't
even rely on the armed forces as a last resort towards making a future for themselves.
According to a recent Associated Press story, some 32 million people are in that age
group. But the Army -- which bases its assessment on census data -- has deemed the
majority of them to be too obese, too uneducated or burdened with too many issues that
would preclude them from serving.
Besides being too fat -- reflected in the drop in overall physical fitness among
teenagers, a third of whom are believed to not be able to pass a treadmill test -- felony
records and too many children are also making many of them ineligible for military
service. A number of them are also high school dropouts. Then there's the rise in the
use of Ritalin and other drugs to treat hyperactivity and attention deficit disorder. That
often disqualifies recruits if they have taken such drugs the previous year.
Once all the kids who struggle with those issues are subtracted from the 32 million,
that leaves only 6.6 million who could qualify for service. That scares me -- but not
because so many youths are too unfit to sign up to die for their country. It scares me
because so many of them are off to such a bad start that if they don't turn themselves
around, they won't be able to live prosperously in it.
For the record, let me say that I'm bothered by the fact that many recruits -- and
most black recruits -- have to join the armed forces out of economic necessity. I espe-
cially hate it now, a time when so many young black people are caught up in a misad-
venture in Iraq that is doing more to fatten the pockets of military contractors and fuel
the power trips of chicken hawks than to advance the economic progress of people like
them.
But at the same time, I can't ignore the fact that the military's figures are eerily
revealing -- because they show the magnitude of the problems that are besetting young
people today, and they foreshadow the struggle ahead for them as they try to live
healthy and productive lives.
An obese young person, for example, might get a job someplace, but she might
have a tough time getting in the door if the potential employer -- especially a small
business owner -- looks at her and sees skyrocketing health costs. What's more is that,
to me, anyone who is between 17 to 24 years old ought not to be shackled by a pre-
ventable health issue such as obesity. I mean, they're kids. They ought to be celebrat-
ing the peak of their health, not dealing with a downside.
Of course, the only future f6r high school dropouts is at labor pools or in fast food.
Having a felony record increases the chances for job rejection. And a woman or man
with five or six children before age 24 will struggle to get ahead even in civilian life.
Now, some steps can be taken to curtail this -- the first being the reinstatement of
physical education as a required course in schools and not as a frill. Parents ought to
be made more aware of what they may be doing to their children's future when they
permit them to use mind-altering drugs such as Ritalin.
But the toughest thing to do is to drive home the point to teenagers -- many of
whom have no vision of their own future and who live in the moment -- about how
what they do early in life can have lasting effects. They have to be made to see that
committing crimes, having multiple children early and not controlling their weight are
issues that can cause them to start their lives out weighted with shackles that they need-
n't have.
So the military's findings don't make me afraid for the future of our defense. They
make me afraid for the future of our most precious commodity. Our youth.

Free Prostate Cancer Screenings Boys 2 Men Summit "Breaking the
Silence...Bridge the Gaps"
Jacksonville, FL- The 2007 Boys 2 Men Health Symposium/Hip Hop Summit and
Community Basketball Game being held over Father's Day weekend promises more than edu-
cation and fun. During the event's Men's Health Symposium Saturday, June 16 at Edward
Waters Gymnasium from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., The Duval County Health Department (DCHD) will
offer free prostate cancer screenings. Incentives will be given to the first 100 men who are
screened. Other available screenings are: Diabetes risk assessments and cholesterol and sickle
cell screenings.
The Duval County Health Department recognizes the increased health disparities that effect
the urban male population in Jacksonville; therefore, DCHD will use the Boys 2 Men event as
an opportunity to provide free screenings that address some of these disparities. One such
screening is for prostate cancer. According to the American Cancer Society (ACS), "Black men
in America are 1.5 times more likely to develop prostate cancer and are 2 to 3 times more like-
ly to die of the disease than white men." The sad reality is if detected early through screenings,
there is 99% survival rate. Thus, many men die from prostate cancer because they are not being
screened.
Florida State Senator Tony Hill is passionate about and committed to changing these statis-
tics for the men of Jacksonville and beyond. Senator Hill has sponsored a Bill, SB110, which


would require health insurance policies to provide coverage for an annual prostate cancer
screening for men age 40 or older, and the coverage may not be subject to plan deductibles. "If
passed, this legislation will aid in the early detection of prostate cancer," says Senator Hill. "We
can no longer remain silent and negligent about this highly curable disease. If a screening is the
primary barrier between survival and mortality, as an advocate for my city and the residents of
this community, it is my moral and political responsibility to impact change. I commend the
Duval County Health Department's Boys 2 Men event for pro-actively making a difference by
offering these much needed free screenings for men. At the end of the day early detection leads
to direction."
This year's Boys 2 Men theme is: "The World Through My Eyes: Breaking the
Silence...Bridging the Gaps," and leaders like Senator Hill are embracing and supporting this
event with not only time and resources, but also with change. Other supporters are: 100 Black
Men of Jacksonville, Inc., Northeast Florida Builders Association Apprenticeship Program,
Jacksonville Chamber of Commerce, Duval County Health Department, Jacksonville Sheriff's
office, Jacksonville Fire and Rescue department and other leading community organizations.

Elephants Can't Drive
By Ester Dav\is
ReligioniAndSpiri tuality.com '
Some days when I leave m dri\eta\, it seems as though- .
e\er'y dner in a car is out to run me o\er. So I became quite,- .
concerned about ho\\ man\ accidents take ho\\ many lives a a i''
year. Honestly. I \as not prepared for the research results.
Let's see, what analog\ is most effective. If you placed ,
large photos side by side of people killed in automobile crash- Al J
es every year, the photos would stretch about 5 miles.
Let's try a photo album containing photographs of people killed this year. And using
simple arithmetic, put 10 photos per two pages, this photo album would have more than
3,000 pages.
Here is a louder wake-up call: Assuming a casualty rate of 800 .soldiers per year, the
United States would have to be in Iraq for about 50 years to equal one year of automobile
deaths.
Automobile deaths are the leading cause of death for people aged 3 to 33 years. These
are our teens, toddlers and young dads and moms. Car crashes will take the lives of 44,000
Americans this year, give or take a hundred. Can you hear me now? I wonder what would
happen if we treated our neighbors as we treat our cell phones? Meaning, if we treated
humankind like we could not live without them.
According to the National Safety Council, your chance of dying in an automobile
accident is 1 in 84 over your lifetime. With seatbelts, new enhancements in vehicles and
an overkill of warnings, you have to ask yourself if these are avoidable deaths. My handy
answer is "of course, they are." Now, mind you, this report does not address the non-fatal
injuries that record a couple million annually with costly, lengthy, missing-work rehabil-
itation periods.
This is a big problem. Bigger, actually than the elephant. Definitely moving faster and
higher in numbers than the elephant. Whenever, you recognize an "elephant" in your life's
pathway, you have to reach a conclusion quickly, because a handsome helping of damage
can be done in a short period of time. In the greatest, most glorious land in the world, do
we have to be regulated and enforced to do everything? Elect yourself to a higher office.
Reducing deaths on the road could be simple. It should be a concerted, individual
choice to drive more safely every time you are behind the wheel, thus allowing you to put
your third eye back in the eyeglass case, and giving your inner ear a rest from the non-pri-
ority cell phone call to the ultimate priority of safeguarding your life. Then, does that
make us a more responsible, thoughtful, caring nation? Of course, it does. Try a few of
these caring driving tips. If you think of others, send them to me.
Be more patient with the elderly. Smile and drive. Wave some. Don't honk. Children
in the car? Chill. You were young once, and nobody ran over you.
In a hurry? Leave earlier. Allow yourself time to respect the rights of others.
Stressed out? Walk. Take the bus. Acknowledge that some days may not be a good day
for you to drive.

IS FATHERHOOD CRUCIAL TO CHILDREN'S
FAITH? A 1994 study concluded that it was a father's faith that determined
the faithfulness of his children-surprisingly, the mother's devotion had compara-
tively little impact. One editorial comment on the study puts it like this: "No father
- no family no faith. Winning and keeping men is essential to the community. of
faith and vital to the work of all mothers and the future salvation of our children."
A new book, "The Values-Driven Family: A Proactive Plan for Successful
Biblical Parenting," by Marc Carrier, takes this news to a whole new level.
Conducting Talk Show interviews, between Easter and Father's Day, on this often
overlooked finding, Author Marc Carrier gives a clarion call to American fathers,
saying, "Dads, this is our burden to bear-the future of our children hinges upon
how we train them in the ways of the Lord. Don't shift that responsibility to others-
it is our job!"
Carrier reminds your audience that Father's Day is typically set aside to celebrate
and honor Dads but adds that it also is an ideal opportunity to affirm and encourage
a father's Biblical role as family leader, decision-maker, and spiritual instructor.
Marc Carrier will share some insights just for Dads from his book, The Values-
Driven Family: A Proactive Plan for Successful Biblical Parenting. He encourages
fathers, from the Scriptures, to embrace their God-given role as the head of their
families. He emphasizes servant leadership, living by values, persevering to the end,
and being a good steward of God-given resources to instill God's values on the chil-
dren's hearts so that they faithfully embrace serving God upon emancipation.
All too often, Carrier contends, children abandon the faith upon leaving the nest.
Carrier discuses the importance of a father's role in avoiding this devastating, yet all
too common, end. Fathers will be challenged to both live out God's Word as an
example to their children, and take upon themselves the mantle of leadership as their
children's primary spiritual instructor. Marc's Biblical insight and wisdom will, no
doubt, be challenging to many dads, yet offer tremendous encouragement and edifi-
cation.
Carrier draws a parallel between parenting and corporate project management, all
with Biblical support, and uses the analogy to provide some practical pointers for
Dads on how to make their parenting more effective.
Pivotal to "The Values-Driven Family" are twelve Biblical core values that sum
up the whole of Scripture and the essence of Christ-likeness. Carrier exhorts Dads
to live out these values in their own lives as a means of developing Godly character
in their children. Living the Word of God, and teaching our children to do the same,
brings blessing-and what better a time than Father's Day to remind dads of what a
key role they play in shaping the lives of their children.
About the book...
The Values-Driven Family is a comprehensive guide to Biblical parenting that is
practical in its application. It revolves around 12 core values that sum of the whole
of Scripture and the essence of Christ-likeness. With these core values, parents are
equipped to train, encourage, and discipline their children in a way that reaches the
heart rather than simply addressing outward behaviors. As a support for parents, free
downloads, such as a budget tool, character development chart, and chore chart, are
available on the Values-Driven Web site (www.valuesdrivenfamily.com).
"The Values-Driven Family is actually four books in one: the fundamentals, par-
enting, Biblical character development, and home management-everything the
Bible has to say about family in a single, concise easy-to-read-and-apply package."


About the Authors...

Historical Information:
Juneteenth is the oldest known celebration commemorating the ending
of slavery in the United States. Dating back to 1865, it was on June 19th that
Union soldiers, led by Major General Gordon Granger, landed at Galveston,
Texas with news that the war had ended and that the enslaved were now
free. Note that this was two and a half years after President Lincoln's
Emancipation Proclamation which had become official January 1, 1863.
The Emancipation Proclamation had little impact on the Texans due to the
minimal number of Union troops to enforce the new Executive order.
However, with the surrender of General Lee in April of 1865, and the arrival
of General Granger's Union troops, the forces were finally strong enough to
influence and overcome the resistance.

HIV/AIDS Orlando, FL The ole' adage,
"When America develops a cold, the Black
community develops pneumonia," can be con-
sidered true when applied to Florida's current
HIV/AIDS epidemic. In Florida, the fact is
more Blacks are living with HIV or have died
from AIDS than any other ethnic group. While
the statistics are staggering, local organiza-
tions have banded together to not only issue a
call to action for the faith community, but also
provide the resources needed to effectively
combat this disease (refer to left article).

Former D.C. Mayor

Barry Acquitted of

Drunk Driving Charge

Washington, DC's former Mayor Marion Barry was
acquitted last week of drunken driving and other offenses
stemming from his arrest last year near the White House.
Barry, now a District of Columbia Council member, had
been charged with driving under the influence, operating a
vehicle while impaired, driving an unregistered vehicle and
misuse of temporary tags.
Barry was stopped by Secret Service agents early Sept.
10, 2006. The officers said he stopped at one-green light and
drove through another red,one. The agents testified that the
former Mayor smelled of alcohol, was stumbling and had
red eyes and slurred speech.
D.C. Superior Court Judge Richard Ringell ruled that he
could not find beyond a reasonable doubt that Barry was
intoxicated. He noted that a breath test later in the evening
registered a blood-alcohol content of .02 percent, well below
the legal limit of .08 percent. Barry signed autographs and
shook hands with supporters as he left the courthouse.
"First of all, let me thank God for this decision," Barry
said. "I wasn't doing anything illegal, anything improper,
anything wrong."
The 71-year-old council member, who served six months
in prison after he was videotaped smoking crack in a 1990
FBI sting during his third term as mayor, testified in his own
defense Wednesday.
"I had only one glass of wine, and there weren't chemi-
cals in my body," he told the judge. He said he was taking at
least five medications for his diabetes, high blood pressure
and knee problems. "I don't think I was impaired or under
Sthe influence."
His attorney, Frederick Cooke, said Barry's stumbling
and failure of a field sobriety test before his arrest were the
result of his age and medications he was taking.
Barry said he tries not to drink at all during his recovery
from substance abuse. But he said was having a celebratory
drink that night with an Oklahoma state senator after learn-
ing he would receive an award from the Congressional
Black Caucus:
Barry refused a urine test after passing the breath test,
and prosecutors argued his refusal implied a consciousness
of guilt. Officers suspected Barry was impaired with anoth-
er drug, in addition to alcohol, prosecutor Kara Preissel said.
The judge said that all the officers' actions were proper,
but that their finding of his impairment met a standard dif-
ferent from what he must use in a court of law.
In a separate case, Barry remains charged with driving an
unregistered vehicle in December 2006. Ringell set an Aug.
22 trial date on that count.


Black Women Not Sharing



in Breast Cancer Progress


Breast cancer is the most
common cancer diagnosis
among African American
women, and among women
nationwide. Studies have
shown that when African
American women follow
the same preventive meas-
ures as white women, their
death rates from breast can-
cer are very similar.
However, African American
women are more likely than
white women to be diag-
nosed at later stages of the
disease and are more likely
to die from it. Scientists are
still exploring the reasons
behind these trends.
The incidence of breast
cancer among African
American women is slightly
lower than it is for white
women. In any given year,
95 out of 100,000 African
American women are diag-
nosed with breast cancer,
compared to 112 out of
every 100,000 white
women. However, African
American women are
slightly more likely to
develop breast cancer
before age 50, and white
women are more likely to
develop breast cancer after
age 50.
But, black women with
advanced breast cancer are
faring -no better now than
they were two decades ago
despite improved survival
by white women -- and the
gap appears to be widening,
.U.S. researchers said last
week.


They found the black women overall had more
aggressive tumors and were more likely to die
than the Hispanic and white women.


Dr. Sharon Giordano of
the University of Texas,
M.D. Anderson Cancer
Center studied breast cancer
survival in women between
1988 and 2003.
What she found was that
in general, women with
advanced breast cancer
were living longer. "But
when we looked separately
by race, we found the
improvement seemed be to
limited to white patients
and the survival for black
patients had remained flat
over time," Giordano said
in an interview.
"What is really concern-
ing to me is that the differ-
ence is getting bigger,"
Giordano said.
She and colleagues iden-
tified 15,438 patients with a
median age of 62 from a
National Cancer Institute
database who were diag-
nosed with advanced breast
cancer between 1988 and
2003.
.They divided the groups
into three time periods.
From 1988 to 1993,
breast cancer survival was
fairly close between whites
and blacks, with a median
survival of 20 months for
white women versus 17
months in blacks
Between 1994 and 1998,


the median survival was 22
months for white women
and 16 month's for black
women.
From 1999 to 2003, the
median survival rate for
white women jumped to 27
months, versus a stagnant
17 months for black
women.
"The study didn't look at
any of the factors that could
be causing it," said
Giordano, who presented
her study at the scientific
meeting of the American
Society of Clinical
Oncology in Chicago.
Some researchers have
suggested that biological
differences may make
breast cancer more deadly
for black women. A study
last fall of 2,000 women by
Dr. Wendy Woodward, also
of the University of Texas,
compared the records of
black, Hispanic and white
breast-cancer patients. They
found the black women
overall had more aggressive
tumors and were more like-
ly to die'than the Hispanic
and white women.
Black women in that
study more frequently had
estrogen-receptor negative
tumors, which are not fed
by the hormone estrogen
and do not respond to the


most successful breast can-
cer drugs such as tamoxifen.
But Giordano was skep-
tical of the link to biological
differences.
"I don't really think it is
any inherent difference in
biology of people by race. It
is more likely related to
socioeconomic factors,"
Giordano said.
"I think you could also
hypothesize it could be
related to access to care -
potentially differences in
access to new treatment,"
she added. Giordano said
the next step is to determine
the reasons for this increas-
ing disparity. "Once you
know the reasons, you can
intervene to correct the
problem."
Breast cancer kills
500,000 people a year glob-
ally according to the World
Health Organization, and
1.2 million men and women
are diagnosed with it every
year.
It is the second most
common cause of cancer
death in U.S. women after
lung cancer, and the No. 1
killer of women aged 45 to
55.
It kills 40,000 men and
women a year in the United
States.

Integrity Act of 1924


This past Tuesday marks
the 40th anniversary of one
of the watershed milestones
in the civil rights move-
ment: the lcpilization of
interracial marriage., But
the couple at the heart of
the landmark Supreme
Court case of Loving v.
Virginia never intended to
be in the spotlight.
In all until the advent
of the civil rights move-
ment '30'states had laws
on their books that prevent-
ed interracial marriages. Of
these, 16 kept their laws on


made it "unlawful
for any white person in this
state to marry any save a
white person, or a person
with no other admixture of
blood than white and
American Indian." In writ-
ing the statute, one of the
challenges that the Virginia.
racists faced was their own
proud history.
The law had to take
account of "the desire of all
to recognize as an integral
and honored part of the
white race the descendants
of John Rolfe and
Pocahontas." Because of


the Pocahontas loophole,
you could have a little
Indian blood (one great-
great-grandparent's worth)
and still be counted as
white. But "every person in
whom there is ascertainable
any negro blood shall be
deemed and taken to be a
colored person."
The law automatically
voided all marriages
between whites and blacks.
The law prohibited leaving
the state to get married and
then returning, and speci-
fled that the "fact of their
cohabitation here as man
and wife shall be evidence
of their m: i.ilge." The
penalty was stiff: "If any
white person intermarry
with a colored person, or
any colored person inter-
marry with a white person,
he shall be guilty of a
felony and shall be pun-
ished by confinement in the
penitentiary for not less
than one nor more than five
years
Richard Loving was
white; his wife, Mildred,
was black. In 1958, they
went to, Washington, D.C.


- where interracial mar-
riage was legal to get
married. But when they
returned home, they were
arrested, jailed and ban-
ished from the state for 25
years for violating the
state's Racial Integrity Act.
The trial judge, Leon
Bazile, was compassionate
enough to suspend their
sentences--provided they
get out of Virginia and stay
out for 25 years. "Almighty
God created the races
white, black, yellow, malay
and red, and he placed
them on separate conti-
nents," Judge Bazile
opined. "The fact that he
separated the races shows
that he did not intend for
the races to mix."
To avoid jail, the
Lovings agreed to leave
Virginia and relocate to
Washington.
For five years, the
Lovings lived in
Washington, where
Richard worked as a brick-
layer. The couple had three
children. Yet they longed to
return home to their family
and friends in Caroline
County.
That's when the couple
came to know Bernard
Cohen, a young attorney
4'


who was volunteering at the
ACLU.
Cohen had been practic-
ing law for only two years
when he received the phone
call that thrust him into a
Virginia case that would
change American society.
the ACLU office in
Washington called him to
pass on a special request
from Attorney General
Robert Kennedy. They
wanted the 30-year-old
Alexandria attorney to take
on Virginia's ban on interra-
cial marriage.
Richard and Mildred
simply wanted Cohen to ask
the Caroline County judge
to reconsider his decision.
"They were very simple
people, who were not inter-
ested in winning any civil
rights principle," Cohen,
who is now retired said.
"They just were in love with
one another and wanted the
right to live together as hus-
band and wife in Virginia,
without any interference
from officialdom.
When I told Richard that
this case was, in all likeli-
hood, going to go to the
Supreme Court of the
United States, he became
wide-eyed and his jaw
dropped," Cohen recalls.
Cohen and another
lawyer challenged the
Lovings' conviction, but the
original judge in the case
upheld his decision. Judge
Leon Bazile wrote:
T


"Almighty God created the
races white, black, yellow,
Malay and red, and he
placed them on separate
continents.
The fact that he separat-
ed the races shows that he
did not intend for the races
to mix."
As Cohen predicted, the
case moved all the way up
to the Supreme Court,
where the young ACLU
attorney made a vivid and
personal argument.
The Lovings have the
right to go to sleep at night
knowing that if should they
not wake in the morning,
their children would have
the right to inherit from
them.
They have the right to be
secure in knowing that, if
they go to sleep and do not
wake in the morning, that
one of them, a survivor of
them, has the right to Social
Security benefits. All of
these are denied to them,
and they will not be denied
to them if the whole anti-
miscegenistic scheme of
Virginia is found unconsti-
tutional."
After the ruling now
known as the "Loving
Decision" the family,
which had already quietly
moved back to Virginia,
finally returned home to
Caroline County. But their
time together was cut short:
Richard Lo\ ing died in a car
crash in 1975.

Carl Lewis Returns

Gator's Ashlee Elliott


Walter Dix
The. Seminoles add another Back-to-Back
Championship to the State of Florida's collegiate list of
unbelievable performances. Even more impressive, they
did it with six athletes I think Bobby Bowden has
more ball boys than that.
Two weeks ago I had the opportunity to watch the
young athlete that contributed almost half of the Noles
points in Sacramento. I was at the NCAA Division-I East
Regional Track and Field Championships in Gainesville..
The young man I was watching was FSU's record set-
ting sprinter Walter Dix. True to form, Dix took the
100m at 10.05 with a headwind and the 200m with a
record setting 19.69. Both times were better than his
National Championship performance.
Before FSU Walter was the top high school sprinter in
the nation for the 2004 season, running Olympic stan-
dard times in the 100m and 200m. He shattered the state
mark with a 10.28 in the 100 meters at the Florida Class
4A state meet, after tying it at 10.38. He broke the
Florida high school record with a 20.62 in the 200 meters
this past season before besting the mark with a 20.54 at
the state regional meet. And, he was one of six
SchoolSports Magazine's top high school athletes in the
nation.
When football and basketball players and coaches are
getting all the attention good and bad it is great to
see athletes like Walter Dix and the rest of the Seminoles
bring home another National Championship.
Six athletes take home a National Championship?
That might be a record by itself.
It's pretty much expected that Walter will be turning
pro by next season and we wish him Godspeed.

US Open
I had a long talk with one of Golf's better beat
reporters this week. He is at Oakmont covering the U.S.
Open. I asked the obvious question... Who is gonna win
S the Open.
I thought I had accidentally been transferred to a
political candidate.
"Well" he starts, "a lot depends on Phil's wrist. He
didn't look too happy this afternoon. If he gets off in the
heavy rough. .. but maybe he still has last year's horrif-
ic collapse on his mind. Sean O'Hair, is another one,
you gotta love this guy after the Players Championship
this year when he knocked two shots into the water on
that par-3 17th down there. I love a guy that goes for the
pin."
I sat the phone down to get.a beer, I know how writ-
ers are when they don't have an editor involved, this
could take a while.
When I picked up the phone, "... another guy that
you have to take serious is VJ, aside from those two days
at the Memorial, he has hit the ball as consistently as any
of the other top guns this season. And Ells, with his put-
Sting skills, you can't ignore him either, but Justin
Leonard could really be a sleeper, he has been playing
great for the last 6 weeks."
"Alright," I interrupted, "Who's gonna win it!"
"Well Tiger, of course" came the instant reply.

Noles Repeat as NCAA




Track & Field Champs


Florida State added another repeat
with their second NCAA Track and
Field Championships in as many years
this past weekend in Sacramento,
California.
FSU's Walter Dix won three events.
With a slight breeze in his face and
eight races in four days weighing on
his legs, Dix wasn't able to challenge
his own collegiate record but still
added another memorable chapter to
his growing legend at Florida State.
Dix won the 200-meter dash in
20.32 seconds giving him his third title
of the meet while clinching FSU's sec-
ond consecutive men's championship.
,"We're establishing something at
Florida State," Dix said. "Two champi-
onships back-to-back say enough. I'm
glad I was able to be a part of both of
them."
Dix completed just the eighth men's
double in the 100 and 200, winning the
seventh national title in his amazing

career. He also helped the Seminoles
take the title in the 4x100 relay, giving
him a hand in 30 of FSU's 54 points.
Dix threatened the NCAA record
while winning the title in the 100 on
Friday, blazing his way across the fin-
ish line in 9.93 seconds. He already
holds the collegiate record in the 200 at


19.69 seconds. He had to settle for just
another title in the 200. Florida State's
men clinched their back-to-back
national team title after two stellar per-
formances in the 200m and 400m.

l 7From Actual Police Reports

S Did You Hear About?





THEY HAD TO USE K-9
ASSISTANCE upon attempting
to conduct a traffic stop, the sus-
pect exited his vehicle in the 2700
block of Fairfax St. Upon exiting
the vehicle, the suspect fled east
on foot, even after been corn-
manded to stop. The officer, the
K-9 officer and another officer
pursued the suspect on foot. After
a search of the area, the suspect
was found hiding under a house.
The suspect refused to come from
under the house. He also refused
to show his hands after numerous
commands to do so. The suspect was taken into custody with the assistance
of the K-9 officer. The suspect was treated at the scene and cleared. The vehi-
cle fits the description of a vehicle wanted in reference to a murder in the area.
When searched, the officers found cocaine in the arm rest and marijuana in
the console drink holder. The tag on the suspect vehicle was not assigned to
the vehicle. Upon checking the suspect drivers license, it was found that he
was a habitual traffic offender. He was transported to PTDF.

HE YELLED, "YOU NEED TO GET OFF THE ROAD" an officer
responded to a traffic crash in the 2100 block'of St. Augustine Rd., where the
suspect had exited his vehicle and made contact with the driver of the other
vehicle involved in the crash and became involved in a dispute. The suspect
returned to his vehicle and left the
scene without providing his name,
address, insurance and vehicle infor-
mation as required by law. There were
no injuries during the crash, but the
victim was afraid for her life. An
A.B.O.L.O. was broadcasted of the
suspect vehicle describing it as a
small red car,with a Florida tag occu-
pied by two black males. Another offi-
Scer observed a vehicle matching the
description and discovered red paint
located on the grill..The victim
responded to the scene and identified
the vehicle as being the one that
struck her vehicle. She then described the occupants of the suspect's vehicle
as being two light skinned black males. She stated that while waiting for the
light to change, she was struck from behind by the suspect's vehicle. She also
stated that the suspect drove his vehicle aside hers and yelled "you need to get
off the road." She stated that the suspect then pulled in front of her, parked
and got out. She was afraid at this time. That's when she called the police.

WHEN SEX BECOMES A HOMICIDE PROSTITUTING WITH THE
HIV an officer was cruising the
2000 block of Perry Place where
he noticed a known prostitute
(female about 5'7" weighing about
110 lbs.) soliciting sex to a
stranger passing by. When the offi-
cer tried to pursue her, she tried to
escape. When the officer caught up
with her and started asking her
questions such as, "is there any
information about her that jail per-
sonnel need to know," she stated
she has been in Jacksonville for 3
years and is HIV positive.

The Impact of Prostitution Laws on the Spread of HIV

How do prostitution laws affect the spread, of HIV among prostitutes? The criminaliza-
tion of sex for money means that hookers who are subject to abuse from their customers are
less able to report their abusers. It also makes it difficult for them to insist on condom use
with their customers, and thus increases their chances of becoming infected. In conversa-
tions I had with a number of women who were raped by their customers, without condoms,
they said that because their work is illegal they are not willing to prosecute these men.
Instead, they maintain a "bad date" list and disseminate it to other hookers. In contrast, it
has been found that decriminalization of prostitution enables those in the sex trade to prac-
tice safe sex, and will ultimately result in lower infection rates.
The intention behind increasing penalties in prostitution laws may be to discourage par-


ticipation in the sex trade and thereby reduce health risks. In reality, however, few prosti-
tutes are discouraged by tougher laws. Instead, such laws make them even more vulnerable.
For example, increased penalties will result in an increased seriousness of a prostitute's
criminal record, and this will reduce the employment opportunities for those who choose to
leave the sex-trade industry.
Evidentiary issues also affect prostitutes' ability to protect themselves from contracting
HIV from their customers. For example, possession of condoms is sometimes used as evi-
dence of prostitution. As a result, prostitutes are less likely to carry condoms.
Because many drug users engage in prostitution to support their habits, drug laws can
also affect HIV risk for this community. Bill C-7, the proposed new federal drug legislation,
recently passed third reading in the House of Commons, and is now before the Senate for
final consideration. If passed, it would criminalize possession of "containers" for drugs, and
this would include hypodermic syringes. The new law would discourage users from cany-
ing their own needles, with the result that they would share needles, exposing themselves
to HIV, hepatitis, and other bloodborne diseases.

Here are some tips for keeping your home safe while you're away -"'
1. Display alarm stickers or signs where they can't be missed
An alarm is a very real deterrent for burglars.
2. Create the illusion that you are home by putting lights on timers and asking a neighbor it
park in your driveway in your absence.
3. Rather than boarding your pets, hire a pet sitter or ask a friend to help out.
A barking dog- a.k.a. nature's natural burglar alarm-almost always keeps thieves at bay.
4. Either have your mail and newspaper service suspended, or ask a neighbor to gather
your newspaper, mail and any other deliveries.
5. Arrange to have your lawn mowed at regular intervals.
6. Store-or at least hide from view-all valuables.
7. Leave window shades and draperies in their usual positions, but do not close them all the
way on the street side of the house.
8. Lock all doors and windows, including those in the garage, the basement and the attic.
9. Disconnect electrical appliances, and lower air and heating units to energy-saving levels.
10. Make sure your auto, fire and health insurance policies are correct and up to date.
11. Leave a house key and itinerary with a neighbor, friend or relative. Be sure someone knows
how to operate your home alarm system.

Louis Gossett Jr., An

Acting Icon For All

Time!.


By Rych McCain,
feedbackrych@
sbcglobal.net
Photos 2007 by Andre' B.
Murray/ bernagency.pho-
toreflect.com
The word icon is
often either understated
or overstated depending
upon whom the term
has been bestowed.
Veteran actor Louis
Gossett, Jr., is one who
not only has rightfully
earned such a venerated
description but is the
very essence and spiri-
tual embodiment of the
profession called acting.
Gossett has been there -
done that! He has a star
on the Hollywood
Boulevard Walk of
Fame, and numerous
award nominations. His
award winnings include
the grand daddy of them
all i.e., an Oscar for his
portrayal of Sgt. Emil
Foley in the 1982 block
buster An Officer and a
Gentlemen, opposite
Richard Gere. Gossett's
trophy shelf is also
loaded with two
NAACP Image Awards,
two Black Reel Awards,
a daytime Emmy, Two
Golden Globe Awards
and a prime time Emmy
for his role as "Fiddler,"
in the most watched tel-
evision mini Series of
all time "Roots."
Gossett's mere pres-
ence where ever he goes
always commands a
reverent and humble
respect. My time with
him for this interview
presented a serious
temptation for me to
just sit and listen rather
than interrupt with
questions because of


this man's infinite wis-
dom and knowledge
about the acting game
and life in general.
Gossett had just complet-
ed his role of Willie the
car repair shop owner in
the Tyler Perry film,
Daddy's Little Girls.
What is Gossett's opin-
ion regarding black
actors winning the grand
prize i.e., the Oscar and
then fading back into the
background after all of
the hoopla has faded?
Gossett ponders the
question and answers,
"It's getting to be time
when something \\ill
happen [black s benefit-
ing from an Oscar \ in]".
In referring to Forrest
Whittaker's recent \\in
Gossett continues. "if it
doesn't happen this time.
Oscar will be less impor-
tant. It will be kind of tar-
nished because the entire
country, the entire world d
is in diversity ri'ht now.
Whether they were reluc-
tant to vote for the best or
not, this time it might be
history."
In the mini-series
"Roots," Gossett's por-
trayal of Fiddler \\as so
strong and stood out as
one of the most talked
about and honored roles
of the entire epic because
the character knew \ ho
he was as a motherland
based African American.
Gossett sternly observes
the paradox of today's
generations particularly
the youth. "In terms of
the disconnection of the
roots of the African com-
ing to America, it was
necessary to take a very
prolific people and dis-
connect them from their

Miss Black USA Contestants Celebrate Their Dignity


in Africa
By Noluthando Crockett-
Ntonga, NNPA Special
Correspondent

BANJUL, THE GAM-
BIA, WEST AFRICA
(NNPA) To the undiscern-
ing eye it looks like just
another beauty pageant-
beautiful young women
wearing sashes proclaiming
states from Miss Black
Alaska to Miss Black U.S.
Virgin Island to Miss Black
Tennessee, who won the
crown 36 women in all.
But the glitz, glamour
and every hair in place
means much more than
outer beauty.
"This has never been a
frivolous program", says
Karen Arrington, the
pageant's founder. "It is a
vehicle to provide opportu-
nity for African-American
women. This year we are
bridging the gap and con-
necting with our ancestral
home, Africa with the theme
'A Royal Journey Back to
Our Roots'."
The Miss Black USA
Scholarship pageant is cele-
brating its 20th year and held
the competition for the first
time outside of the U.S., in
The Gambia, West Africa,
culminating with the finals
last Friday evening.
The Gambia gained
worldwide attention when
the late author Alex Haley,


traced his ancestor Kunte
Kinte to a Gambian village
in the landmark book and
later television series
"Roots".
For the Miss Black USA
contestants, holding the pag-
eant in Africa represents the
opportunity of a lifetime.
Each contestant has been
partnered with a Gambian
girl in a pen pal relationship.
The Gambian girls greeted
and accompanied them on a
tour of Kunte Kinte's vil-
lage. "We have bonded for-
ever," says Cleantha
Samuel, Miss Black U.S.
Virgin Island, a crowd
favorite who was the second
runner up for the coveted
crown. "I have agreed to
sponsor my pen pal and I
will be paying her high
school fees as well as for her
sister. It is a blessing for me
to be able to provide needed
resources. I look forward to
coming back." Samuel is a
cost analyst for the U.S.
Department of Defense.
In addition to the educa-
tional partnerships there is
also a medical partnership.
The pageant is sponsoring a
new ward at the Royal
Victoria Hospital in
Serekunda, Gambia, and is
also involved in a diabetes
awareness program.
The Miss Black USA
pageant brought testing
monitors and strips to


Gambia and scores of
Gambian citizens took part
in a day of free testing and
health education. "We are
returning to our homeland to
help change the course of
history," says Arrington.
Given recent racist
assaults on the character of
the Black woman, Arrington
is also quite certain that there
remains a place for the Miss
Black USA pageant. "The
recent Imus incident is a per-
fect example of the stereo-
types that still exist and why
the world needs this pageant.
Miss Black USA is about
celebrating who we are," she
says. Tiffany Dawn Boatner,
Miss Black Colorado agrees,
"This is about a lot more
than beauty. It's about learn-
ing who we are, where we
come from, learning life les-
sons and skills."
All the contestants and
participants including par-
ents, pageant judges and
staff, spoke enthusiastically
about the warmth and hospi-
tality of the Gambian people
from President Yahya A.J.J.
Jammeh to the man and
woman in the street. When
the contestants arrived on a
plane at 3:30 a.m., on May
25th there was a delegation
of more than 200 Gambian
singers, dancers and other
citizens to welcome them
"home":.
From the moment the


contestants arrived in The
Gambia and in the days
leading up to the final event
on Friday, they were busy
with life lessons, rehearsals,
touring and shopping. They
stayed at the Kairaba, The
Gambia's premier hotel nes-
tled in 40 acres of paradise.
The two-story Portuguese
style houses with shaded
terraces, face an Eden-like
garden with more than 100
varieties of fruit trees and
flowers. There are birds of
every color, including a pea-
cock strolling around the
large double-circular pool.
Amidst this luxury, it is
sobering to remember that
just a few steps away is the
beach facing the Atlantic
ocean that our ancestors
traveled in slave ships.
The competition includ-
ed a talent showcase.
Andrea J. Reynolds, Miss
Black Kentucky, is studying
for her Masters of Music
Performance and Piano
Pedagogy at the University
of Louisville. She played a
grand piano and sang a song
she wrote. At the end of her
performance, the audience
jumped to its feet- in
applause. Ayesha Faines,
Miss Black Connecticut, a
student at Yale University
majoring in African and
International Studies,
danced "en pointe" in an
orange colored tulle tutu to
the South African song
"Stimela" by Hugh Maskela.
Jacqueine Echols, Miss
Black Washington State, a
psychology major at the
University of Washington
played her alto saxophone to
the gospel tune "Total
Praise" by Richard
Smallwood. There were
many spoken word pieces
including the standout "My
Street" by Miss Black U.S.
Virgin Island. A surprise to
many observers was Takiyah
Nur Amin, Miss Black
Virginia, who at 5'1" and in
a size 18 is significantly
overweight by any standard.
She performed, an energetic
dance number.
"I've always been big
and I've been competing in


pageants for 10 years," says
the 27-year old Amin.
"Weight is someone else's,
issue. People make assump-
tions about a plus-size
woman. I am a dancer, I am
in good health and maintain
my blood pressure. I like to
challenge people's ideas
about what it is to be beauti-
ful and fit. Pageants are a
political space and let me be
in your face. It is activism. f
may not win but no one will
forget me."
Each contestant was
required to develop a "plat-
fornn"-a cause she believes
in and is actively working
on. These included math and
science literacy for inner
city youth, beating domestic
violence,, breast cancer
awareness, HIV/AIDS pro-0
Grams, improving the foster
care system, among others.
The other competitions
included evening gown and
answering tough questions.
All the contestants were
stunning as they paraded
across the stage which was
built in a large outdoor area
at an adjoining hotel.
Allen-Harris, whose
goal is to be an orthopedic
surgeon, is in her first year at
Meharry Medical School. At
one point, before the con-
testants left the states U.S.,
Allen-Harris had to leave
the group to return to school
for yearend exams.
She says the most impor-
tant lesson she's learned on
this, her first trip to The
Continent, is that African-
Americans cannot discon-
nect themselves from
Africa. "It is very important
that we embrace our her-
itage, regardless of how we
look, our complexion or hair
texture. We need to be aware
of the problems of our
African brothers and sisters
and make sure that they can
develop and attain at least a
fraction of the opportunity
we are afforded in the U.S.
We need to come together
as a people."

Lou cont'd from D-1
if the slave was caught
reading they were either
killed or beaten. The last
remnants of that are just
about to go away. So
that's the crux of what I
call racism."
Gossett turns his
focus on today's youth,
"That is the problem with
our children today. They
don't know where they
come from and they have
African roots deep in
their systems and they
are frustrated. Those who
are successful are making
millions of dollars on the
African root that makes


them worldly famous. If
they knew about Chaka
Zulu, the Ashanti Empire
and Paul Roberson;
Jackie Robinson and I
almost forgot about
Martin. If they knew
about how strong and
prolific that line is recon-
nected; the last thing they
would think about is
shooting one another.
The smallest crime rate
in America would be
black-on-black but they
don't know. They are
looking at other value
systems in order to figure
it out but they don't
know how strong they


are, they have no idea."
Gossett is a very busy
man these days with no
less than seven film proj-
ects between this year
and next. He is also busy
with his Eracism
Foundation in an all-out
conscientious offensive
against racism. He is
even starting an
"Eracism" clothing line.
If you really want a treat
next time you decide to
have a mini rent-a-movie
marathon at home,
include some of
Gossett's best work
among the films that you
rent.
