mM.. N n A~k

ago on February 11, 2010. No one believed he would ever

President Obama, Sharpton, Morial and


Single Army Mom Jealous Meets on Black Unemployment


Discharged
Army Spc. Alexis
Hutchinson, a cook in the
Army and stationed at
Hunter Army Airfield in
Savannah, was arrested in
November because she
refused to leave her son as a
single mom, to go to
Afghanistan. The Army
threaten a court martial but a
Ft. Stewart general decided
Thursday to discharge her
instead. Hutchinson said she
could not leave her son after
her mother refused to take
care of him if she left him in
the states.


A meeting was held between Rev. Al Sharpton, National Action Network,
Ben Jealous, National president, NAACP, and Marc Morial, National presi-
dent of the Urban League to discuss black unemployment.
According to a report by Dr. Boyce Watkins, the one hour, 15 minutes meet-
ing appeared to be productive.
It was reported that Mr. Morial presented a six point plan to create jobs for
his constituents, showing that he has commitment to aggressive and systemic
action.
When the question was raised regarding the disproportionate impact of black
unemployment, Morial that the condition is more related to blacks being poor
than blacks being black. It was added that even among middle and upper class
African Americans, there are still significant disparities that must be acknowl-
edged and such inequities are not likely going to be addressed by the presi-
dent.
It was also brought up that targeted economic policy endorsed by the presi-
dent cannot be race-based.
Dr. Watkins' biggest concern is, talk is good, when will the community see
action?

Haiti is the First Black
Republic. In the 18th
Century Haiti, then called
Saint-Domingue and ruled
by the French, was the most
prosperous colony in the
New World. Its enormously
fertile soil produced a great
abundance of crops and
drew thousands of White
French settlers. In an
attempt to defeat the Haitian
slave revolt he saw
approaching, Napoleon
Bonaparte sold Louisiana,
then a colony owned by the
French, to the United States
for $3 Million dollars, in an
attempt to build up his army,
to no avail.
An Army of Black slaves
had their victory against the
army of Napoleon
Bonaparte and on January
1st, 1804, Jean-Jacques
Dessalines, an African-born
ex-slave, declared Haiti
Independent. It was the first
Black Republic in the World
and the first Country in the
Western Hemisphere to
Abolish Slavery
Completely.
The first such republic, the
United States, despite, its
creed that "all men are creat-
ed equally" looked upon
theses self-freed men with
shock, contempt and fear.
To most of the Western trad-
ing world, whose wealth
was built on the labor of
enslaved Africans, Haiti


stood as a frightful example
of freedom carried too far.
American slaveholders'
feared that Haiti 's fires of
revolt would cross those few
hundred miles of sea and
excite their slaves to revolt.
For this reason, the United
States refused for nearly six
decades to recognize Haiti.
Along with the great colo-
nial powers, American
instead rewarded Haiti's tri-
umphant slaves with a suffo-
cating trade embargo. and a
demand that in exchange for
peace the fledging country
pay enormous reparations to
its former colonial overseer.
Having won their freedom
by force of arms, Haiti's for-
mer slaves would be made to
purchase it with treasure.
Abraham Lincoln finally
recognized Haiti in 1862.
It was in the dark aftermath
of war, in the shadow of iso-
lation and, contempt, that
Haiti's peculiar political sys-
tem toqk shape, mirroring
the only form it knew, the
slave society of colonial
times.
Unable to replace the whites
in their plantation manors,
Haiti's new elite moved
from owning the land to
fighting to control.the one
institution that could tax its
products: the government.
While the freed slaves
worked their small fields,
the powerful drew off the
fruits of their labor through
taxes. The old colonial phi-
losophy still continued: rul-
ing/governing was not really
concerned with building or
developing the country, but
with extracting its wealth.
In 1806, two years after
independence, the first
,emperor, Dessalines, now
known as Emperor Jacques
I, was bayoneted by a most-
ly mulatto cadre of officers.
Haitian history became the
immensely complex tale of
factional struggles to control
the state, with factions often
defined by an intricate poli-
tics of skin color., There was
no method of succession
ultimately recognized as


legitimate, no tradition of
loyal opposition. Politics
was murderous. The state
was battled over and won;
Haiti's wealth, once seized,
purchased allegiance but
only for a time. Unseated
rulers were sometimes killed,
more often exiled, but always
their wealth that part of it
not sent out of the country -
was pillaged in its turn.
In 1915 the whites returned:
the United States Marines
disembarked to enforce con-
tinued repayment of the orig-
inal debt and to put an end to
an especially violent struggle
for power that, in the shadow
of World War I and German,
machinations .in the
Caribbean, suddenly seemed
to threaten American inter-
ests. During their nearly two
.decades of rule, the
Americans built roads and
bridges, centralized the
Haitian state setting the
stage for the vast urban
sprawl of greater Port-au-
Prince that we see today in
all its devastation and sent
Haitians abroad to be educat-
ed as agronomists for the sci-
ence of soil management and
the production of crop man-
agement and doctors for the
science to help the people, in
the hope of building a more
stable middle class.
Under the reigns of the
Duvalier's, starting in 1957
with the most brilliant and
bloody of Haiti's dictators,
Francois, and ending in 1986
with the overthrow of his
son, Jean-Claude, tens, of
thousands were murdered by
the father and America was
held at bay with the fear of
communism being so close.
There have been many
coups,- revolutions and a
handful of elections since the
Duvalier's reign, resulting in
about a dozen different
Haitian rulers; Less and less
money came from the land
because the topsoil was no
good from over production
and lack of investment.
The struggle for power in
Haiti has not ended. Haiti
seems prone to disaster after


Disaster, considering they
have not fully recovered
from the last hurricanes
which hit them so hard a few
years ago and now this
earthquake which has killed
hundreds of thousands and
leveled most of the capitol
city, which was home to
more than .2 million
Haitians.
Whether they can read or
not, Haiti's people walk in
history, and live in politics.
They are 'independent,
proud, fiercely aware of
their own singularity. What
distinguishes them is a tradi-
tion of heroism and a con-
viction that they are and will
remain something distinct,'
apart something you can
hear in the Creole spoken in
the countryside, or the
voodoo practiced there,
traces of the Africa that the
first generation of revolh-.
tionaries brought with them
on the middle passage.
SThe sound of Haiti's suffer-
ing is deafening now but
behind it one can hear
already a familiar music
begin to play. Haiti must be
made new. This kind of suf-
fering so close to American
shores cannot be ignored.
What do we do first? In my
opinion we don't do. any-
thing about rebuilding with-
out first consulting and
working with the Haitians.
Re-building will.be a long
hard .process, involving
engineers, contractors and
. billions of dollars over many
years.

"There's Always Somethin


An Evening With The President
'A Strong University Starts With
A Strong Endowment'
The elegant home of The Howard Taylors was the
setting for the Bethune Cookman'University's Trustee
Reception hosted by The Taylors. The Trustee
Reception was a part of Bethune Cookman
University's Energizing the Legacy Campaign. The
Campaign's goal is o raise $9 Million for Bethune-
Cookman University's Endowment to support:
Scholarships, Academic Programs and General
Endowment.
Dr. Trudie Kibbe Reed, Bethune .ookman
University's. president presented the State of the
University during the reception and further amplified
her message in the Energizing the Legacy Campaign
Portfolio. In that message Dr. Reed states, "The Spirit
of the place. Ask Bethune-Cookman University alum-
ni what sets this school apart and that's what they'll
tell you: The spirit of the place. The aura left by the
life and legacy of our founder, Dr. Mary McLeod
Bethune, is at once indefinable and palpable. It is a
powerfuLpresence on the ground where she walked,
in the buildings where she worked, and in the genera-
tions whose lives she changed...
More. than one hundred years ago, Dr. Mary
McLeod Bethune asked people to believe and invest
in a dream. Today, I'm asking the same questions. Do
you believe in a dream that will build on a century-old
legacy to become a vibrant center for 21st century
learning? Will you invest in that dream to make it a
reality?
Together, we can make Bethune-Cookman what
Dr. Bethune would want it to be--the best possible
place for students of today and tomorrow to live and
learn and fulfill their God-given potential.
That is what the Energizing the Legacy Campaign
is all about."
Joining Dr. Reed on the Trustee Reception pro-
gram were: Bethune Cookman University Board
Trustees- Mrs. Madeline Scales-Taylor and Dr. Larry
R. Handfield, Esquire, who is Board Chairiian; Mrs.
Shirley Range; Ms. Terry Turner-James; and Cyrus
Hancock who gave a presentation on establishing per-
sonal endowments for the university.

each category. The 1st place winners
are The Tribes bofDan.& Gad, The
2nd place winners are The Tribes of
Ephriam and Judah and the 3rd
place- winners are The Tribes of
Naphtali and Ruben. The food, pro-

Census Count is Crucial for All
By Cheryl Williams, The Florida and Georgia Star
Community leaders and educators urge the community to be counted. They stipulate that not
being counted will adversely affect the community in terms of influence.
Not being counted will affect the community politically with respect to how much governmen-
tal money will be allocated. These leaders also assert that these factors impact governmental
assistance with planning for education, housing, health and other programs that reflect diversi-
ty..
Dr. Ray Oldakowski, Chair of Jacksonville University Division of Social Sciences declares,
"The count from the US Census is'very important for our neighborhoods. The distribution of
federal funding is determined.by census counts. Census counts also influence people's percep-
tions ... growing areas are always thought of more positively than areas in decline. This influ-
ences the location of businesses and the provision of goods and services."
Dr. Stephen Baker, Professor of Political Science at Jacksonville University agrees. "The main
purpose of the Census, as required by the Constitution, is to enumerate (or count) the total num-
ber of people ih America. This will provide the basis for distribution of the 435 voting memi-
bers of the House of Representatives among the states. It will bemused to calculate how many
federal dollars are dispensed to each area for programs based on population such as aid
to schools, Medicaid, etc." "So far," he said, that may not appear to be very political.
However, anytime you are determining who gets represented.in the councils of government, or
how. much money will be allocated, then it gets very political. If a particular population is
undercounted, there will.be less representation for that group and fewer funds allocated to the
area. Rudy Giuliani as Mayor of New York City sued the federal government for compensation
since'that city failed to receive its share of federal funds. By the same token, if a population is
over-counted, the group will receive more government services than what they are entitled

Talking To An Attorney


By Burney Bivens, Esq., LFD


FORECLOSURE


These are difficult economic times and many people are facing hardships with respect to
the payment of-the mortgage on their home. Whenever a mortgage company files a fore-
closure lawsuit, the homeowner, second mortgage holders and any other person who has an
interest in the property are named as defendants in the lawsuit. The reason for this is so that
if the-court grants a foreclosure,,the mortgage company who filed the lawsuit can obtained
clear title to the property. To understand this, some back ground information is important.
Whenever a home is purchased and financed through a mortgage company, the mortgage
company generally has a first lien On the property. Then anybody else who loans money
against the property or obtains a judgment against the homeowner may. also have a lien
against the property. (In Florida, generally, whenever a/judgment is obtained against a per-
son, that judgment automatically attaches as a lien against any real property that the person
owns in the County where the judgment was obtained.) Liens attach to real property in the
order in which the liens are obtained. For example, if the home is initially financed with
Bank of America, they would have the first lien. Then, if the home owner takes out a sec-
ond mortgage with Community Credit Union, they would have the second lien; and, if Visa
filed a lawsuit and obtained a judgment against the home owner, that judgment would attach
as a third lien. This order of priority is extremely important because in many cases, family
members and friends will loan money to a home owner and as security for their loan, they
will take a mortgage on the burrower's real estate. Before obtaining a mortgage to secure a
loan, it is important to understand whether or not any other liens have already attached to
the property that would have a higher priority than you do.
Now, when the foreclosure lawsuit is filed, if the first mortgage holder files the foreclosure
suit and is successful, all liens that attached afterwards will have a lower priority and will
be defeated as a result of the foreclosure. In the example discussed above, Bank of America
as first lien holder would defeat Community Credit Union, Visa and anybody else who has
obtained a mortgage or a judgment against the property. On the other hand, if someone with
less than first priority files the foreclosure lawsuit and is successful, they would defeat all
lien holders that have a lower priority than they do; but in the successful foreclosure action;
they would take the property subject to (and still owe) all lien holders that have higher pri-
ority. In the example discussed above, if Visa were to file a foreclosure lawsuit and is suc-
cessful, they would defeat the home owner, but they would then take the property subject to
and still owe Community Credit Union and Bank of America. While the home owner would
be defeated and divested of his or her interest in the property, Visa with it's successful
action, would still owe Community Credit Union and Bank of America, which must be sat-
isfied before they can obtain clear title to the property.
Therefore, if you are loaning money to a friend or relative and expect to secure that loan
with a mortgage on their property, it is important to understand your priority. Information
regarding your priority and any other liens against real estate can be obtained by conduct-
ing a title search to determine if there are any other liens against the property. These are the
general principles that apply to foreclosure, but there may be some special rules that apply
to every case and you are therefore encouraged to seek legal advised for your specific situ-
ation. For example, there may be some special rules that apply to homestead property as
oppose to non-homestead property with respect to liens that may or may not have attached
to that property.

The Jacksonville Urban League (JUL) is proactive with their involvement in the 2010 census
count and are partnering with the U. S. Census Bureau to help achieve a complete and accurate
count. The JUL understands that this opportunity that occurs once every ten years has the abil-
ity to empower every American to make a difference in their life and the life of others.
Historically the census in previous years missed many African Americans, Hispanics and other
people of color because of unfounded fears. This must not happen in April 2010.
The JUL contend that the
Census is more than just
counting the population. It .
is critical, to our communi- :.
ty since everyone benefits
such as churches, small
businesses, employed,
unemployed citizens and
non citizens. It provides a
snapshot of the changing
population, ensures appro-
priate representation and

makers on where to build
or improve roads, hospitals;
schools, senior centers, ..
child-care centers, as well
as assist with planning for

and other programs that ff I
reflect diversity It is
very important that every-
one complete and return
their census form.
Dr. Richard Danford,
President of the,
Jacksonville Urban
League, stated, "This is the. Aroua* nlif

tory. It will take 10 minutes t i

Mortgage Broker
Harry M. Myers is one of
more than a dozen
-"Venture Out" tenants at
Beaver Street Enterprise
Center, renting profession-
al office space part-time.
Among the many ameni-
ties offered by the seven
year old business incuba-
tor is the opportunity to
mingle with some of
Florida's top business and
government leaders when
they visit the Center.
"If I weren't a Venture
Out tenant at Beaver
Street, I doubt I'd ever
have the chance to meet a
U.S. Senator," said Myers,
who was there January 29
when Senator George
LeMieux (R-Fla) paid a
*visit.
Senator LeMieux' visit


Enterprise Center coincid-
ed with the monthly man-
ager's meeting, in which
all small business owners
and entrepreneurs head-
quartered at the business
incubator gather to share
progress reports. In a
brief meet and greet ses-
sion, Executive Director
Jackie Perry introduced
the Senator to attendees,
which included
FreshMinistries founder
and CEO, the Rev. Doctor
Robert V. Lee, III, as well
as board members, busi-
ness partners and tenants.
Perry's progress report
included the announce-
ment that Beaver Street
Enterprise Center is once
again a finalist for
National Incubator of the
Year, with'tenants having


to Beaver Street retained approximately


270 jobs, created 89 new
jobs, and produced collec-
tive revenues of more than
$9.3 Million in 2009. /

for its phenomenal success
in these challenging times,
Senator LeMieux spoke
about his goal to infuse the
incubator's brand of high
energy into the creation of
new jobs for people across
the State "I'm here to
learn from you," he told
the gathering as he spoke
of his focus on jobs and
his aims to provide job
seeker assistance and help
the State's unemployed
12% pursue business
opportunities through net-
working with existing pro-
grams like
FreshMinistries, Beaver
Street, and local chambers


of commerce.
LeMieux said he want-
ed to cut through the
bureaucratic red tapenot-
Sing that he has designated
his seven regional offices
in Florida as resource cen-
ters for job seekers and
potential employers. The
Senator's first proposal is
to cut payroll taxes paid
by employers and employ-
ers in half for one year,
thus providing immediate
financial relief.
Following a brief
update from' Dr.' Lee
re g a r d i n g
FreshMinistries' central
role in the national Haiti
relief efforts, including the
goal of emulating
FreshMinistries six-point
community initiatives
plan (Education,
Affordable Housing,


Economic. Development,
Family Strengthening,
Safety and Health) in
Haiti, Senator -LeMieux
was taken on a tour of the
25,000 square foot facility.
"Senator LeMieux
was very approachable
and he took the time to
look you in the eye and
listen to what you were
saying," said Myers, who
is currently planning to
utilize the. conference
space at Beaver Street
Enterprise Center to con-
duct seminars for first-
time home buyers. "The
atmosphere here is stimu-
lating,". said Myers.
"Meeting the Senator and
hearing about upcoming

and buy my own commer-


cial building. Fort right
now, this is the best place
to grow toward success."

ASC Deanna! is an aavice column nniwronju us
fearless approach to reality-based subjects!


Dear Deanna!
I'm having a challenge with my new girlfriend. She is
adorable, nice and sweet but her hygiene and housekeeping
habits are horrible. She can cook, but she leaves dishes in the
kitchen for a week, never vacuums and her cat walks around
the house. I always thought I could handle most things in this
relationship but this is a bit much. We make love in a dirty bed, cat hair is every-
where and there's never any clean dishes. How do I gently handle this issue?
Clean Man On-Line Reader


Dear Clean Man: '
Your girlfriend is a slob and it'll take an infection or food poisoning to get her to see
the light. If you want to drink out of a dirty class and have cat hair in your throat
hang in there with it. If this cramps your style, surprise your girlfriend with a few
visits from a cleaning service and hope she gets the hint. If this doesn't help then tell
her to clean her house and keep it clean or you're gone. If she chooses dirt over you,
say goodbye and keep it moving.

Dear Deanna!
My uncle is newlydivorced and he's driving me crazy. He always wants to go to
the club, hang out and drink. I don't mind going out with him every now and then
but he comes over every day, eating dinner and begging me to go out. At first, my
girlfriend was okay, but now she's forcing me to turn him away, not take his phone
calls and avoid him. He's my favorite uncle and I don't.want to hurt him but I don't
want to hurt my girlfriend either. What do I do?
Nephew John Pasadena, CA :,

Dear Nephew John: .
Apparently your uncle doesn't.know much about responsibility, thus his divorce.
Although you have an obligation to put family first, you must never sacrifice your
relationship for nonsense. Have a talk with your uncle and tell him that you want
your relationship to work and you can only go out with him on a conservative basis.
If he doesn't understand then he's selfish and deserves to go out alone.

Dear Deanna!
I have gained a lot of weight and I feel that my husband is falling out of love with
me. He's not intimate with me, we don't cuddle and he always acts as if I'm annoy-
ing him. I am trying to diet but it is so stressful sitting by watching and feeling that
I'm losing my husband. He claims that he still loves me but his actions are extreme-
ly different from the words he says. What can I do to recapture the fire and energy
in my marriage?
Overweight Wife Toledo, OH

Dear Overweight:
If you're having these feelings there's no sense denying there's some truth to what's
going on. The best way to tell if your husband is slipping is for you to lose weight.
You need to be happy with good self-esteem. Once you get back into your zofe,
measure your husband's, activity and behavior towards you. If things don't change,
you have a problem that goes beyond weight. Be prepared for a discussion and seek
honest answers regarding your relationship.

Is Poor Posture Aging You?
Like fine wine, the wisdom of parental advice improves with age. Research
shows your mother was even right about standing up straight, as shown by new
studies finding that people with better posture really are healthier and actually live
longer. Not only are there intuitive reasons,why people with good posture are
healthier and more active, but poor posture also has a dramatic effect on another
growing problem facing older adults: falls and poor balance. According to the
National Safety Council, over 1.5 million people over 65 are seriously injured each
year in falls, which cause nearly 14,000 deaths, with another quarter suffering
debilitating injuries that affect them for the rest of their lives. In addition, poor pos-
ture affects how well your heart can pump blood, and even how well you can
breathe:
As a clinician, posture expert and author of Stand Taller-Live Longer: An Anti-
Aging Strategy, Dr. Steven Weiniger often advises people to feel for themselves the
difference posture makes in how your body works with this simple demonstration:
"While slumping forward in a chair, take a breath in and note how deeply you
can breathe. Then, scoot your bottom back in the chair pull your shoulders down,
lift your head up and sit tall. Note the significant difference when you take in a
deep breath while maintaining strong posture." Unfortunately, most of us are
spending more time than ever slumped in front of a TV, computer, or video game,
and our poor posture is getting worse. If you stop to think about it, you're likely
slumping as you read this (unless you just straightened up a bit). When you spend
18 hours a day with your body folded into a chair, you'll go back to the slump as
soon as you stop thinking about it. The problem with improving posture is, no mat-
ter how good your intentions, just trying to stand up straighter simply doesn't work
(case in point: are you slouching again?): Ren6e North, Certified Posture Exercise
Professional (CPEP) has this advice for improving posture. "In order to make a
change, we must retrain our motion patterns, and this begins with becoming aware
of our posture first, and then developing new habits. Incorporating a One-Leg
Balance into daily life is a great place to start. Make this exercise an immediate part
of your daily routine and you will see and feel a difference."
Weiniger's One-Leg Balance
SYour posture is ultimately how your body is balancing. Even if someone is
standing crooked, mechanically they are balanced or. they would fall down!
Standing on one foot is.a way of seeing- how good your idea of where you are in
space agrees with where your body really is.
Try this: Stand up, tall and straight. Lift your left leg so your thigh is level with
the ground. Count to 20.Repeat on the other side.
You should be able to balance on each leg for 20 seconds. If you can't, you
probably need to work on improving balance.
LifeHabit Tip: Try to balance on one leg at least three times a day. If you are
wobbly, hold on as you lift your leg, but focus on standing up with strong, tall pos-
ture, keeping your feet pointing straight ahead and pelvis level. Strengthening pos-
ture can relieve postural neck and back pain as well as help you get the most ben-
efit from any exercise because your form gets naturally better. If you focus on pos-
ture each day and work to strengthen balance, alignment, and motion, over time
you'll be surprised not only at the difference in how you feel, but even how others
see you. The bottom line is, when you keep moving you feel good and age well.
Dr. Steven Weiniger, nationally recognized expert on posture and anti-aging, is
the author of Stand Taller-Live Longer: An Anti-Aging Strategy. The book com-
bines cutting-edge research and interactive demonstrations to progressively build a
,10-minute a day posture exercise routine for your body. This anti-aging strategy
can make a difference not only in how you feel and move today, but also how well
you'll move 20, 30 and even 40 years from now.'www.StandTallerLiveLonger.com

SRed Cross or Red Devils? ~
Every day I hear people saying the best way to help
the Black people in Haiti is to send money to white folk or
to agencies controlled by whites like The Red Cross and
the Bush-Clinton relief effort.
To contribute to those type organizations is ONE WAY, not necessarily the very
best way!
Many of the non-Black people traveling to Haiti to save the Haitians are wear-
ing'Timberlands and silk shirts to pass out water to Haitians who only have one shirt
in the world and are bare footed!
When I and others suggest that many Haitian people have nothing and need
everything, I mean everything! .
I have said before and I say so today, send everything that you can to help the
Haitian people; .
* No, I don't mean for you to box up Super Bowl T-shirts and drop them out of
helicopters or stack them up at the Haitian airport. What you need to do is find. a
group like Wyclef Jean's, a Haitian church or orphanage or a specific Haitian fami-
ly to send stuff to directly.
No Black family anywhere at any time can survive being totally dependent on
charity devils!
Someone asked The Red Cross, for instance, how much of the donations
received by the group actually goes to Haitians. The answer was ninety-one cents of
every dollar goes to help Haiti. It sounds OK doesn't it?
Well, if contributors give a billion dollars to The Red Cross, $90,000,000.00 goes
somewhere other than to Haitians.,Now it looks a little different. Its not that much
overhead in the world. '
Haiti is a Black country,filled with Black people and I think the Haitian people
should take part in every aspect of the Haitian relief efforts.
White folks are ordering 'plane loads and shipping container loads of medical
supplies, water, canned foods, sugar, wheat, flour and other items.
I wonder how.many Haitians, or Black, individuals and companies are involved
in those purchasing transactions,
There are Haitian commodity traders and facilitators. There are Black commod-
ity traders.
The devilish charities are tricky too. They are.in essence saying, "Black, folk,
give all of your contribution dollars to us so we can buy needed commodities from
our friends and make some white folk filthy rich."
I know you don't like for me to say things like that but you tell me. Does the Red
Cross have minority business set aside aspect? Does the Bush-Clinton relief effort
have a diversity plan?
What happens to Black people in America happens to people of African desent
worldwide.
History is the best teacher. If you want to know what the new and "improved"
Haiti will look like just look at what the new New Orleans looks like. Look at what
so-called urban renewal has done in every major metropolitan area in America.
OK, don't look at America. Look at what happened in Freeport, Bahamas when
white folk came there and said they would be helping Bahamians.
Think again, it is nothing wrong with giving to Black directed Haitian relief
efforts or giving directly to Haitian groups or individual families just like you give
to non-Black groups.
Internationally, just like locally, we have to accept true assistance from others but
we also have to-help ourselves and our people.
Our focus cannot be on making the white vendors and contractors of The Red
Cro'ss and the friends of other white controlled charities richer than they already are.
If a Black man could just sell the JP54 jet fuel to gas up all of the airplanes at the
Haitian Airport, he would be a millionaire many times over.
Think about it! (Buy Gantt's book :Beast Too: Dead Man Writing" and/or

FILM: A GREAT DAY IN HARLEM LOOKS AT JAZZ HISTORY

THROUGH THE LENS OF A FAMOUS 1958 PHOTO


Packing a wealth of history, music, and personality into its 60-minute
running time, A Great Day in Harlem is an entertaining documentary about
a famous photograph that ranges far beyond its subject to encompass the
history of jazz in the U.S. Jean Bach's film was nominated for an Academy
Award for Best Documentary Feature, and now Golden Isles Arts and
Humanities Association (GIAHA) is delighted to screen it for the communi-
ty at the Historic Ritz Theatre in Downtown Brunswick on Thursday,
February 11, at 7:00 p.m. The event is presented in partnership with the
Brunswick chapter of The Links Inc.
"A Great Day in Harlem" (also known as "Harlem 1958") is a justly
famous black-and-white group portrait of 57 jazz musicians, the leading
artists of their time, photographed on a street in Harlem, New York City. The
photo was taken around 10 a.m. on a summer's day in 1958 by Art Kane,
a freelance photographer working for Esquire magazine. The musicians
had gathered on 126th Street, between Fifth and Madison Avenues in
,Harlem.
Esquire published the photo in its January 1959 issue. Jean Bach, a
.radio producer of New York, recounted the story behind it in this fascinat-
ing film. But it's more than just the story of a photograph; it is a history of
America's true native art form, told by the people who made the music,
many of whom were present on that historic day.


Subject: Minority Media Council Donates

$175,000 to Howard University



Minority Media 'and Telecommunications Council (MMTC) Donates

$175,000 to Howard University's 'John H. Johnson School of

Communications


Washington, DC [CapitalWirePR] February 12, 2010 -The Minority

Mddia and Telecommunications Council (MMTC) has donated $175,000 to

help strengthen the John H. Johnson School of Communications' initia-

tives, including the capital campaign for a new building. The donation will

go toward planning for construction of a state-of-the-art facility, along with

the technology and equipment necessary to meet the rising demands of

the telecommunications industry.

"On behalf:of the John H. Johnson School of Communications, we

thank the Minority Media and Telecommunications Council for its generous

contribution,".said Jannette L. Dates, Dean of the John H. Johnson School

pf Communications. "With significant donations from. partners like MMTC,

we are confident the School will continue to empower our students with

knowledge of communications technology and policy, giving them a com-

petitive edge throughout their careers."

SA Founded in 1986, MMTC is the nation's leading advocate for multi-

cultural diversity and inclusion in the media and telecommunications

industries, which represent one-sixth of the national economy. MMTC has

represented over 70 national organizations in FCC proceedings and has

provided fellowships for 50 minority attorneys in telecommunications prac-

tice. It operates the only minority owned media brokerage in the nation and

has. effectuated the sale of $1.7 billion in television and radio stations to

minorities.


"It's a.funny and moving film whose swinging rhythms and informal
tone capture a feeling for the music, the people who make it and the affec-
tion and respect they feel for each other and the art form," noted Jesse
Hamlin of the San Francisco Chronicle. Combining stills, interviews, old
home movies, and archival performance footage, the film'"darts and sways
like a good solo," Hamlin said.
Here's an interesting cultural connection: the photo was also a key
object in Steven Spielberg's film, The Terminal. The film starred Tom Hanks
as a character who comes to the U.S. in search of Benny Golson's auto-
graph, with which he can complete his deceased father's collection of auto-
graphs from the musicians pictured in the photo. Only five musicians in the
photo are still alive: Benny Golson; Hank Jones, Marian McPartland, Sonny
Rollins, and Horace Silver.
The Links, Inc., is one of the nation's oldest and largest volunteer
service organizations' of women committed to enriching, sustaining and
