suspect money and bring his four
children, who are living
in the streets because of the earthquake, in Haiti. His wife

According to reports, he came to America in 2004. They

Fantasia Threaten


It has been reported that
Fantasia received a letter,
thought to be from a fan,
loaded with racial slurs,
including the N-word and a
line that said: "Go back
where you came from and
die."


According to the report, it is
alleged that the person who wrote the letter worked as a
security guard for the Fox Channel while Fantasia was an
"American Idol" contestant.

Is it too late for your

dream Hummer?
General Motors said the Hummer brand will be discon-
tinued, unless someone buys the contract. They had
planned to sell it to Sichuan Tengzhong Heavy Industrial
Machines Co but the deal fell through.
GM said they will continue serving owners who have
warranties but will not continue to make the vehicle. If
this be the case, your desire to have a Hummer means
you must move quickly.

Will We Get Health Care in America?
Angela E Morrell

There are 290 Bills that have been passed by the
House and not yet acted upon by the Senate as of mid
February. Thursday, there was an open public debate
on health care. President Obama released his plan to
see if there,was a way he could get support on his
desire to have health care for all Americans.
There was a lot of conversation and criticism but the
only thing that was really offered by the Republican Party members was for Obama to start all over again.
Readers and listeners of The Florida Star,'The Georgia Star and Impact radio say that just as the Republicans
sit on their hands to avoid voting on any bill, to start over is just another ploy for them to continue sitting on
their hands as Americans continue to suffer from physical ills, continue to fall deeper in debt or get low cred-
it scores because of health, and eventually die- broke. There will be no bipartisan accord, said one reader. If
Americans wish to get health care reform President Obama should use the reconciliation legislative technique
which requires only 51 votes for passage rather than the 60 votes needed in the Senate to break a filibuster.
Senator McCain and many Republicans are against such a move but, that is what happened during the past


administration when the House and Senate had the power. MOVE 0O
the hype. Americans want reformed health care.

Chairman of the NNPA Spoke to
Congress about Census Outreach
Danny Bakewell Sr., Chairmen of the
National Newspaper Publishers Association
(NNPA), which represents over 200 Black
S'* newspapers and their publishers, testified
before the House Subcommittee on
Information Policy, Census and National
Archives at its "The 2010 Census
Communications Contract hearing Wednesday.
Regarding the upcoming count, Mr. Bakewell
stated that the Census is setting up for the
largest historical undercount of Blacks by not
working with the Black Press of America in an
Danny Bakewell Sr. effort to reach African-Americans. The organ-
ization is 70-years old and has the ability to
reach millions, he said.
He discussed the trust of the Black press, with 183 years of tradi-
tion and service because the Black Press of America has established
a legacy of trust built by honestly and accurately telling the stories
of Black America from the Black perspective.
In 2000, said Mr. Balewell, Blacks were undercounted by 2% and
we are headed for the largest ever undercount, in 2010.
He stated that the Black press is the glue that connects Blacks in
Los Angeles with Blacks in New York and Blacks throughout
America with Blacks around the world. Every political issue, civil
rights struggle, and social justice movement affecting Blacks are
recorded on the pages of our newspapers.
He advised the Congress that the Black Press wants to secure the
best results through fairness, equality, and the ability to secure a full
and effective count of African-Americans and the Black Diaspora
for the 2010 Census. He added that with the help of the NNPA and
the Black Press of America, Black people will not be hard to count.

The Beginning of Black History Month Celebration and Contributions

from Some of our African American Inventors


By Councilwoman Glorious J.
Johnson

From 1926 to the 1960s,
Americans were celebrating
black culture, which was
known as "Negro History
Week." However, during the
1960s, it became what we
know today as Black History
Month.
This change for fostered by
Carter G. Woodson who advo-
cated for moving the history
of blacks to the forefront.
Carter G. Woodson's parents
were born into slavery and
Woodson worked in the
coalmines of West Virginia.
Woodson used the money he
made working in the
coalmines to put himself
through high school. He grad-
uated from Berea College in
Kentucky; In fact, he was the
second African American to
receive his doctorate from
Harvard University.
Carter G. Wood was dismayed
by the exclusion of black
American history in literature.
He founded the Association
for the Study of Negro Life
and History, which is present-
ly called the Association for
the Study of Afro-American
Life and History. By 1916, he
had initiated the Journal of
Negro History.
So many of us have discussed
by Black History is celebrated
in February, which is the
shortest month in the year.
The month of February was
chosen by Woodson in order
to celebrate the birthday of
two men who influenced the


black community: Frederick
Douglass and Abraham
Lincoln.
The names below is a very
small number of great inven-
tors (men and women), who
through the difficulties of
obstacles being place before
them contributed to the this
country
1). Garrett Morgan (1877-
1963), Invented the gas mask,
which was used by the mili-
tary and other commercial
businesses throughout the
world. Mr. Morgan also
invented the first traffic sig-
nal.
2). Otis Boykin (1920-1982)
invented the electronic control
devices for guided missiles,
IBM computers, and the pace-
maker. He invented 28 differ-
ent electronic devices.
3). George Washington Carver
(1860-1943), invented peanut
butter and 400 plant products.
'Mr. Carver was born a slave,
but, by the age of 30, he went
to college to get his education.
4). Elijah McCoy (1843-
1929), invented an oil-drip-
ping cup for trains. Other
inventors tried to copy
McCoy's oil-dripping cup.
However, none of the other
cups worked as well as his.
Therefore, customers started
asking for "the real McCoy."
That is where the expression
comes from.
5). Charles Drew (1904-1950)
Charles Drew researched
blood plasma and transfusions
in New York City. It was dur-
ing his work at Columbia


University where he made his
discoveries relating to the
preservation of blood, solid
plasma and freezing the two
separately, he found that blood
could be preserved and recon-
stituted later. Charles Drew's
system for the storing of blood
plasma (blood bank) revolu-
tionized the medical profes-
sion. Dr. Drew also estab-
lished the American Red
Cross blood bank, of which he
was the first director, and he
organized the world's first
blood bank drive, nicknamed
"Blood for Britain".
6). Madame C. J. Walker
(1867-1919), Invented a hair-
growing lotion for African
American women and other
hair products. Madame
Walker became the first
female African American mil-
lionaire in this country.
7). Dr. Patricia E. Bath (1949-
), invented a method of eye
surgery that has helped many
blind people to see. Dr. Bath
has been nominated to the
National Inventors Hall of
Fame.
8). Sarah Boone (1691-1743),
invented a device, which
would help to neatly iron
clothing. This device, the
predecessor to our modem
ironing board was made of a
narrow wooden board, with
collapsible legs and a padded
cover and was specifically
designed for the fitted cloth-
ing worn during that time.
9). Valerie Thomas (1943- ),
received a patent in 1980 for
inventing an illusion transmit-


ter. This futuristic invention
extends the idea of television,
with its images located flatly
behind a screen, to having
three-dimensional projections
appear as though they were
right in your living room.
Perhaps in the not-so-distant
future, the illusion transmitter
will be as popular as the TV is
today.
10). In 1919, Alice Parker of
Morristown, New Jersey,
invented a new and improved
gas heating furnace that pro-
vided central heating.
The listing above is a very
small portion of what African
Americans contributed to this
country.. As my grandmother
would say, "We did more than
pick cotton; we helped to
build this country." It is our
responsibility to encourage
our children to read about
their culture and heritage. It is
also our responsibility to dis-
cuss the past and the present,
in preparing our youth for the
future. Black history must be
celebrated, not only in
February of each year, but
throughout the year.
Our history shows how our
ancestors were doctors,
lawyers, scientist, engineers,
architects, teach-
ers/professors, mathemati-
cians, business owners, just
to name a few. We have so
much to be proud of and so
much to share with each gen-
eration. We must never for-
get the sacrifice of our
ancestors who made it possi-
ble for us to live a better life.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR
I am proud to be an African American, born and raised here in the state of Florida and therefore
indeed proud to share my thoughts during this black history month 2010. This is black history
month and it is a time of celebration for African Americans all over the world. It is a time of
remembering our history, embracing our today and committing ourselves to a better future. We do
this in many positive ways depending on the individual, group, business, community or family.
One thing that is most often done during this time is sharing our history with our African American
youth. We endeavor to inspire them & educated them to this rich history and hopefully to also help
them understand and become one with our past as we know it.
This 2010 black history month celebration gave me great pause and a personal sense of satisfac-
tion as I reflected back on an African American legacy close to my heart. A legacy born in our past
here in Florida, relevant to our present and vital to our future as I see it, not only for me but for
African Americans as a whole. This is very relevant to African American history, past, present and
future.
The reason this is significant is because although I appreciate the time of Camelot of the
Kennedy's, the time of the son of Camelot John F. Kennedy Jr. "John John" and all that they
meant to African Americans, and indeed the nation, I take pride in the fact that we have here in the
state Florida our own Floridian Camelot. Our own congresswoman Carrie Meek, who represent-
ed the state of Florida in many political offerings, raised our own Floridian grown not "John John",
but" Ken Ken", the son of our Camelot, Congressman Kendrick Meek.
This is truly an African American fact. Congresswoman Carrie Meek represented the state of
Florida during a time of highly charged open racism and hate. Although living in the Miami area,
she traveled countless times to the city of Jacksonville, and all over the state of Florida fighting
along side our local leaders here, for justice and against injustice. In between many of her trips,
office time, walks and talks for justice and without missing a beat or a chance to fight against injus-
tice, she gave birth to, raised, educated, trained, encouraged and passed the torch of justice to her
son, our own Congressman Kendrick Meek, representing
Florida, as his mother had done before him.
I know there were many days and nights that she huddled with her son, knowing she was going
to be threatened, ignored, betrayed, and become invisible to those she had to work with and some
she had to fight against to champion the fight for freedom. She did this anyway, not just for a bet-
ter tomorrow for her son but for all of us. Congressman meek learned at the political knee of a
political giant and freedom fighter, his mother. When the time was right, she passed the torch for
justice to her son whom she had taught so well. Without missing a step or asking why me?, he took
the torch of justice for African Americans, held it high, and began his work as a fighter for justice
as he continues to do to this day.
I am sure as he took the torch of justice from his mother, knowing the battles ahead, i believe he
must have turned slightly towards her, gave his mom a smile, then turned his face to the plight of
African Americans and all others he would represent for our great state today. Congressman
Kendrick Meek, is relevant to our black history. The legacy his mother and their family created
and passed to him is relevant to our past, our present, and our future, especially for African
Americans here in the state of Florida.
Now congressman Meek is once again poised to make history by becoming the first person

Agape is a Greek word meaning "love." Jesus
taught an Agape love to his disciples, meaning that in
their service of one another, they could expect positive
growth as an outcome. By giving, we can create change
in our own lives. Payne Chapel AME's Agape Banquet,
is a new way for us to meet the first part of the mission
statement.
Guests from the Church and community gathered
together in fellowship on Saturday, February 13, 2010
at the Altama Elementary Cafeteria. The Payne Chapel
Agape Banquet offered several examples of life-chang-
ing experiences, but possibly the finest examples are
Margie B. Washington's Reading "The Weeping Time,"
a Journey thru Black History and The Testimony of
Reginald Jones followed by Musical Selections by the
Anointed "Jones A Phones." February 13 is an unfor-
gettable day for all who attended this Banquet. The
Speaker, Marcyline Bailey stressed, This community is
marked by trust, accountability, respect, serving, God-
honoring, quality relationships, and fellowship. The
Glynn Academy High School Step Team rendered
dance selections; additional program participants are;
Angela Favors-Morrell, Solist and Mistress of
Ceremony, Brenda Williams, Shawn Miller and Bright
Star Baptist Church Pastor, Reverend Darrell Dawson.
Reverend Richard Hutcherson is the Pastor of Payne
Chapel.

ever to qualify for state wide
office by petition in his bid
for the united states senate.
Congressman Kendrick Meek
currently represents Florida's
17th Congressional District in
the United States House of
representatives. Prior to
serving in the United States
House of Representatives,
Congressman Meek, served
as a member of Florida's
House of Representatives and
the Florida Senate.
This is Black history at its
best. This historical data is
critical to our existence. We
should indeed take pride in all
the festivities surrounding the
history of proud African
Americans, but we must not
be lost in these festivities, or
the past, at the expense of


what is also happening to us
as African Americans now.
Jacksonville has strength and
unity within our strong politi-
cal history, for which I am
truly proud of. From
Congresswoman Corrine
Brown, Senator Tony Hill,
Representative Audrey
Gibson, Representative Mia
Jones and all of the other able
African American leaders
currently fighting for justice
and equality for all, you are
also embraced in my hearts as
I remember with pride all of
you, and the leaders of the
past upon whose great shoul-
ders you now stand.
Many want us to be lost is the
past, or just plain lost. I dis-
miss this notion and say that
there is always more room in


the hearts, minds and souls of
proud African Americans, to
embrace and now remember
our great African American
heroes in all walks of life and
particularly for me at this
time of reflection, the African
American son of our Camelot
and legacy Congressman
Kendrick Meek, our "Ken
Ken," born, raised, educated
here in the state of Florida, is
indeed my right. As Martin
Luther King said, keep your
eyes on the prize, yes, we
African Americans will do
just that. And now you know
another African American
historical black fact.

Talking To An Attorney
By Burney Bivens, Esq., LFD
FAMILY LAW Visitation

One of the most vexing aspects of a divorce involves visitation. Frequently people who
normally make sound decisions fall into the trap of using the kids to strike back at the
other parent in a divorce. Florida has taken steps to try and limit such disagreements by
requiring that every divorce with children has to have a time-sharing agreement filed
and approved by the court. The courts also require that both parents attend and complete
a state approved course that is designed to emphasis to BOTH parents the fact that the
children are innocent parties and they need BOTH parents involved in their upbringing.
The time-sharing agreement is a detailed document that spells out each parent's rights
AND obligations when it comes to visitation. It tells us who the children are going to be
living with primarily and what kind of visitation rights the other parent has with the chil-
dren. What is unique about a time-sharing agreement is the enforcement rights each
party has with regards to visitation. A parent that does not exercise his/her rights as well
as his/her obligations can be held in contempt of court. This means that a non-custodi-
al parent who fails to take the kids for a visitation can be held in contempt the same way
a custodial parent can be held in contempt for withholding visitation. This way a custo-
dial parent can confidently make plans for those times when the other parent is to have
visitation without worrying that the non-custodial parent will back out at the last minute.
A word of caution though. Denial of visitation is NOT an excuse to delay or not pay any
court ordered child support. Conversely non-payment of child support is NOT an excuse
to deny visitation.
Time-sharing agreements also recognize that both parents have the right to be kept
informed about their children. A common provision allows both parents full access to
school and medical records. Both parents can, and are encouraged, to attend school
functions such as school plays and any school sponsored events. Both parents are free
to talk with the children's doctors. Both parents can make emergency decisions concern-
ing the kids and both are required to inform the other parent as soon as possible of any
such decisions.
A time-sharing agreement also puts down in black and white one of the major points
discussed in the court ordered parenting class. Neither party is to use the kids as mes-
sengers or go between. The parents are to talk to each other and leave the children out
of any disputes that may arise. Neither parent is to bad mouth the other parent in front
of the children NOR are they to allow someone else to do so. This means if the other
parent is not paying child support or is denying visitation you leave the kids out of it.
You don't tell your son that you can't buy him that new bike because his dad hasn't paid
child support. You don't tell your daughter that you didn't attend her school play
because mommy raised a fuss. You don't let the grandparents complain about what a
poor mommy/daddy the other parent is when the kids are in the room.
The bottom line is, and will remain, best interests of the children. The parents are sup-
posed to be grown ups and are expected to act that way. Being a parent means investing
your time and love in your child as well as your money. Kids need more than just food
on the table and a roof over their heads. They need love, encouragement and guidance

Dear Deanna!
My niece is involved with a man old enough to be her father
and I feel he's taking advantage of her. My sister, who is her
mother, is willing to go along with this if it makes her daugh-
ter happy. I think it's statutory rape and is sickening because
my niece is young and inexperienced. I'm at the point where
I may call and report this to the authorities because it's not right. Is it worth the risk
of losing my sister and my niece or should I leave it alone?
Worried Aunt Long Island City, NY

Dear Aunt:
It takes a village to raise a child and if your niece is underage then you should report
it to the authorities. However, you should respect your sister and talk with her
before making your move. Also, many people are going to be hurt by your decision
and you must also ensure you have all the facts about the interaction between your
niece and this man. If your research indicates you niece is truly being taken advan-
tage of, the authorities need to put him under the jail.

Dear Deanna!
I can't tell you how tired I am of watching my sister go out with bad guys. She seems
to have a magnet on her head that attracts unemployed men, drug dealers and guys
that look shady. She has access to decent men in her circle. I don't understand it.
My sister has a college education, a good job and nice friends. You would think that
after a while, she would be tired of financing men, getting abused and dealing with
drama. How do I get through to her?
Carl Portland, OR

Dear Carl:
Some women will overlook good guys because they seek excitement, good sex and
thrills. These relationships often crash and bum after a financial wipeout, unplanned
pregnancy or a few fights with other women. You can help by introducing her to
quality men, exposing her to positive relationships and social networking opportu-
nities. The choice is up to her and if she continues the "choke me, pull my hair"
lifestyle, then support her and be there when she falls.

Dear Deanna!
How do if apologize for interfering in my best friends marriage? I want to apolo-
gize to her but I don't know what to say to her without any physical confrontation.
There were some things that I did and said that caused problems in her relationship.
I just want to apologize and let her know that I didn't mean to come between her and
her husband. How do I apologize?
Hurting Oklahoma City, OK

Dear Hurting:
You owe an apology to her husband as well because your actions affected him too.
You're an adult and know you shouldn't do anything to jeopardize another person's
relationship. If you did something so bad that it would get physical, you should com-
municate with a card or a phone call. Then again, if this is your friend and you truly
have her best interests at heart, you should be able to respectfully apologize face-to-
face without drama and keep it moving.

HEALTH 08
By Ulysses W. Watkins, Jr., M.D.

~ MUMPS ~

Mumps are caused by a virus and occurs most often
between the ages of five and fifteen years. It is also
found in young adults, more frequently in males than
females.
The virus of mumps is probably spread by droplet infection. The salivary
glands of the infected person are commonly involved in mumps. Signs of
mumps include headache, loss of appetite, chills, and pain in the salivary glands.
Swelling occurs in the parotid (near the ear) glands. Frequently one side of the
parotid gland is affected first, followed by involvement of the opposite side.
When the swelling is great, the pain increases. The temperature varies between
1000 and 1040 F.
Complications from mumps are found among teen-agers and adults.
ORCHITIS (inflammation and swelling of the testicles) may occur in boys and
men. The mammary glands, ovaries, and pancreas may be involved in females.
Deafness as been known to follow mumps.
Bed rest is considered to be very important to prevent complications from
mumps. Relief of pain from parotid or salivary gland swelling is achieved by
application of heat or cold, depending upon which the infected person tolerates
best. Soft and semi-solid food is preferred by the infected person who finds it
difficult and painful to chew. The nose and throat should be kept clean.
The live, attenuated virus mumps vaccine should be given to all susceptible
Children over one year of age, children reaching puberty, adolescents, and adult
males. In one study of nearly three thousand school children in North Carolina,
the live virus mumps vaccine proved to be 95.6 percent effective in protecting
Children against mumps. During 1968 more than one million persons were given
the mumps vaccine. A double-duty vaccine against both mumps and Rubella has
Seen approved for distribution.

~ Thoughts At Large ~
Former Vice President Dick Cheney recently said
Barack Obama will be a one-term President. Well, guess
what? As much as I dislike Cheney, he may be right! If
Barack Obama continues to suck up to beast bankers and
insurance companies and fails to fight for financial reforms and health care. The only
"change' he'll be involved in is a change of address! I think the masses of Americans
that voted for Barack want him to fight for what's right and stop trying to placate
everybody in Washington. Or could he be just like the other politicians and kissing
the back sides of his lobbyist, Wall Street campaign contributors at the expense of
the voters.
Talking about Obama, what about his lovely wife Michelle's initiative to stop
childhood obesity? What a worthy cause! Some say an apple a day keeps the doctor
away but do you know what one good fresh apple costs these days?
A lot! Everyone can exercise more but poor people can only afford poor people's
food. It's easy to say "eat right" when you can afford any fruit and vegetable that
money can buy and have your family's meals prepared by executive chefs. Just work
hard to work off extra calories and eat the best and most healthy way you can by eat-
ing smaller portions of all you eat.
All I can say about Tiger Woods is that he's a racist that has no clue about his
history. If Tiger read about Emmit Till and others he would have known that Black
men have been hung by their necks for whistling at white women. To think because
he was famous and rich he could sleep with all the white women in the-world is just
dumb. Hopefully his stupidity doesn't hamper his excellent golf game.
Did you sing "We Shall Overcome" during Black History Month? Did you
march? Well, if you marched by the cemetery, those people turning over in their
graves were not dancing to "Thriller" music. They were crying because you were
singing for freedom instead of swinging for equal rights and justice! Power only
takes a step back when faced with more power!

HISTORICAL RACIAL INJUSTICE
Black History Month


I:T1
x*i 4


~' rt


I. Mildred & Richard Loving, who were mar-
ried in D.C., was considered a crime in
Virginia. They were found by police sleeping
together. It was not felony, but had they been
caught having sex, even though they were
married, it would have been considered a
felony. Loving v. Virginia was a landmark civil
rights case in which the United States
Supreme Court, by a 9-0 vote, declared
Virginia's anti-miscegenation statute, the
"Racial Integrity Act of 1924", unconstitutional,
thereby overturning Pace v. Alabama (1883)
and ending all race-based legal restrictions on
marriage in the United States.
2. Jack Johnson, considered the best boxer
in history was arrested for marrying a white
woman which was considered white slavery.
3. James Bain served 35 years in prison for
a crime he did not commit (the longest in his-
tory).


4. Rosewood Massacre, also in Florida the
town was burned down and the black resi-
dents hid or were sent to Gainesville and other
Florida cities. Although the rioting was widely
reported around the country, few official
records documented the event. Survivors,
their descendants, and the perpetrators
remained silent about Rosewood for decades.
Sixty years after the rioting, the story of
Rosewood was revived in major media when
several journalists covered it in the early
1980s. Survivors and their descendants
organized to sue the state for having failed to
protect them. In 1993, the Florida Legislature
commissioned a report on the events. As a
result of the findings, Florida became the first
U.S. state to compensate survivors and their
descendants for damages incurred because
of racial violence.

Grambling, LA -The Grambling State and Louisiana Tech Department of
Athletics announces the first ever meeting on the gridiron between the Tigers and the
Bulldogs when they meet on Labor Day weekend in the 2010 Port City Classic.
Slated for a 6:00 PM kick off Saturday September 4, 2010 at Independence
Stadium in Shreveport, LA the game will mark the season opener for both programs.
Grambling, the designated home team, ended the 2009 campaign with a 7-4, 5-
2 SWAC record and a second place finish in the Southwestern Athletic Conference
western division. This will be head coach Rod Broadway's first trip to Independence
Stadium and the Tigers first trip since 2003 when they defeated Alabama A&M 45-
14. The Tigers hold a 4-3 record against members of the Western Athletic
Conference.
The signing of this game served as the completion to LA Tech's non-conference
schedule for the 2010 season and will mark the head coaching debut for new head
coach Sony Dykes. This will be Tech's first game at Independence Stadium since
winning the 2009 Independence Bowl, a 17-10 win over Northern Illinois. In 2009
the Bulldogs went 4-8, 2-5 WAC with a fifth place conference finish.
The addition of football continues a tradition of competition between the neigh-
boring Universities as they also compete against each other in soccer, volleyball,
baseball, softball, tennis and cross-country.

Knights Sweep NFC North with Win Over Panthers
From Jax Sports News
The Jacksonville Knights remained undefeated with a first series sweep of the
NFC North as they won against the 2009 NFC North Champion Panthers in a hard
fought battle 17-14.
Coming into the game the Knights featured the number one scoring offense in
the FFA, with a resounding 39 points per game average. However, the Knights
offense struggled which lead to the lowest points scored up to this point in the sea-
son.
Running back Derrick Nettles continued to make a claim as the FFA's most
dynamic back. Nettles scored on a long run in the first half and nearly broke free in
the second for another.
Nettles surpassed the century mark once again and is making a strong case to be
invited to an NFL training camp. The Knights defense was led once again by local
hero Joey Lopes, who came in to Saturday's game averaging 12 tackles per game
and leads the team in defensive touchdowns.
If Lopes continues to play at such a high level, he too will garner plenty of atten-
tion for NFL squads in need of a prototypical 6'3 2401b linebacker.
The Knights play at home February 27th and will be facing the 2009 FFA
Champion St. Lucie Bobcats. The game will be at 3:30 p.m. at UNF's Hodges
Stadium. There will be a special raffle for a Tim Tebow autographed helmet and a
special performance by Celebration's B-Boy crew.
Tickets are $7 for adults, $5 for students and military, $3 for children 6-12 and
5 and under are admitted free

Willie "Gallopin' Gal" Galimore, as a running back at
Florida A&M University from 1953 to 1956, was all-
Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference choice
four times and was named a Black College All-America
by the Pittsburgh Courier three times. The Rattlers won
four conference championships while Galimore was at
FAMU and one Black College National Championship.
He played for the Chicago Bears from 1957 to 1963,
before a tragic car accident that took his life at the age
of 29. As FAMU's all-time leading rusher, Galimore
averaged 94 yards per game and was the Rattler's first
1,O00yard runner (1,203 yards in 1954).

COLLEGE FRESHMEN LED LUNCH
COUNTER SERVICE PROTEST


Franklin McCain, Ezell Blair Jr., Joseph McNeil and David Richmond
were freshmen students at North Carolina A&T University in 1960 when
they went to F.W. Woolworth Five & Dime Store to have lunch. They sat at
the counter to order their food but was told that they could not order or be
served at the lunch counter. In fact, according to the practices at that time,
they really were not allowed to sit, but the four students did. They made a
decision to sit until the waitress took their order. She would not take the
order and they would not move. This was the first step for blacks in the
south to end segregation in eating establishments. After the successful
and brave sit-in by the A&T Four, African Americans around the country
took steps to end segregation.
These students sat daily and would individually leave to attend
class. If one left, other students, including women of Bennett College such
as Vernicia Hampton Hairston sat at the counter, requesting service.
A statute of the four students stands on the campus of A & T and on
February 1, 2010, fifty years after the first day of the sit-in, a ribbon cutting
was held for the opening of the International Civil Rights Center & Museum.
The Center is housed in the same building of the sit-in, which still has in
place, the counter stools where the students sat at the corner, now named,
One February Street in Greensboro.
Of the students, Ezell Blair Jr. has changed his name to Jireel
Khazan. He attended law school at Howard University and currently works
with developmentally disabled people in Bedford, Massachusetts.
Franklin McCain joined the Celanese Corporation in Charlotte as a
chemist and later headed the company's Shelby, N. C.'s office. He also
served on the Trustee Board of A&T.
Joseph McNeil is now a major general in the Air Force Reserves.
Following his retirement from the military, he worked for IBM, Bank Trust
and E.F. Hutton.
David Richmond became a counselor-coordinator for the
Comprehensive Employment Training Act program in Greensboro. He died
of lung cancer on December 7, 1990 and was awarded a posthumous hon-
orary doctorate from North Carolina A&T.
Supporters from around the country attended five days of events
with the three living A&T Four who struggled for equality in America.

fourth student, David Richmond, died of cancer on December 7,1990.


Growing up on sound stages in Hollywood may not be an ideal sit-
Suation for certain children. Those who lack the essential guidance of par-
ents whom themselves don't have the proper mental survival headset can
quickly get caught up and loose the game in quick fashion. Those sur-
rounded by parents and folks with both feet planted firmly in the reality of
the awareness of the pitfalls as well as the opportunities of the biz will
make it through the machinery that can and will chew you up and spit you
out. Thirteen year old actor Jaishon Fisher is an example of a child with
the right everything to make it and he has carved out a thriving acting
career as a result. Fisher was nominated for an NAACP Image Award for
his portrayal of the young version of real life brain surgeon Ben Cason in
the TNT Network TV Movie Drama "Gifted Hands." As Fisher explained,
"Ben Carson was one of the first Black doctors to separate Siamese twins
who were joined at the head. When he was growing up he was considered

not smart at all. But many of the people in his life helped him out and he
became a great person."
Fisher, a native Los Angelino, started acting at age two. As he puts $
it, "My parents used to teach us all of these things and they said we had
a great memory and we were always very dramatic. They started to put us
in acting and as I grew older and practiced my craft, I really loved it. It was
really fun. In case you are wondering why Fisher used the plural forms of
reference; the "we" that he is referring to is his sister Jamai who is also an
accomplished professional child actress. As with most children, booking
commercials came first then roles on TV shows such as "All of Us," "That's
So Raven," "ER," "The District," and others. Fisher has also done feature
films with "Lakeview Terrace" and "The Great Debaters" being among
them and was the voice of Blue Teammate #4 in the animated feature
"The Ant Bully."
What is the audition process like from Fisher's prospective and how
does he handle it? He laughs, "The people (casting directors) watch you
and see how you are, to see if you are right to work with them. So I just
go in there, do my thing and do the best I can, get out and see what hap-
pens." What type of movies would Fisher like to do at this stage of his
career? He responds, "I want to do a kid movie like 'Unaccompanied
Minors" and I want to work with Steven Spielberg and Jerry Bruckheimer
because they make some great movies."
When youngsters his age run up to him spilling out their desires to
get into the biz, Fisher is quick to tell them, "Don't just jump into it. Learn
what to do first because it is not so easy. It is work and sacrifice. That's
what it is!" As an eighth grader, Fisher does go to regular school and his
classmates allow him space so it is pretty normal for him with the excep-
tion of getting out early every now and then for auditions.

Black History at the College

College of Coastal Georgia Black History Lunch and Program.

February 11, 2010 @ Southeast Georgia Conference Center Terrill
Thomas Auditorium
In honor of Black History Month, the Grimes Theatre Group
Presented "The Meeting" by Jeff Stetson. This powerful drama, is about
the lives, philosophies, and times of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Malcolm
X.
The Meeting probes what would have happened if Martin Luther
King, Jr. and Malcolm X had met before they were assassinated just
three years apart. This intriguing idea is portrayed as a dialog. A hotel
room provides a compelling setting for these two prominent men of our
recent history, who changed our nation and the world.
The introductory banter between the two men, as they probe for
weaknesses, is amiably provoking. Malcolm X tells Dr. King that he almost
visited him in a Selma, Ala., jail the previous week. When Dr. King
observes that there was plenty of room there, Malcolm X, who had
served time behind bars, says, "I try not to visit jail voluntarily." Martin
To the accompaniment of quick
snatches of newsreel footage of what '
seem to be lynchings and bombings of
black churches, each of the men makes
a strong case for his vision of freedom
for their people and the best means of
getting there. Malcolm X, who sees inte- r
gration as "the white man's solution for
control," mocks the civil rights move-
ment for "sitting 'round a camp fire
singing 'We Shall Overcome' while a
cross is burning." Although neither the
clash of principles nor the affinity of per-
sonalities portrayed
here offers any surpris- .
es, the scenes in which
the men reveal the
shared pain behind their
very different philoso-
phies of the racial strug-
gle are compelling.

Coach Ronald

Miller
By Jayna Weiss


I know an African-American
man who, much like the "Beach
Runner, Ernie Barnes" continues
untiringly down the beach, works tire-
lessly toward a goal of a better world
through one good act at a time. His
name is Coach Ronald Miller. Coach
Miller is a very kind and generous
man who, during and after a long
career as a railroad conductor with
CSX, has spent much of his free time
helping and teaching others..
Coach Miller is well known for
taking care of his elderly neighbors.
Whether they need someone to drive
them to the doctor or the grocery
store, Coach Miller seems to always
find time to help out. He is a long time
baseball and softball umpire who also
teaches clinics for young players. In
the winter, he is a volunteer basket-
ball coach at Yulee Middle School
where he works with both the boys
and girls players from sixth through
eighth grade. His knowledge and


experience have helped Yulee Middle
become one of the best basketball
programs in North Florida. His com-
mitment to the young people of all col-
ors in our community is a wonderful
example of why people need to learn
to see past the color of a person's
skin and do whatever it takes to help
make people's lives better.
It seems everywhere my family
and I go with Coach Miller, people
know him and make a point of speak-
ing with him. Since he has worked
with so many children as a coach,
many of his former players, their par-
ents and sometimes even their own
children treat him as if he is a mem-
ber of their family. He likes to say
that it is his goal to treat every athlete
he works with as if they were his own
son or daughter.
Being a role model for others,
especially children, is not always
easy. Coach Miller understands this
and works very hard to set a good
example for everybody. He is not just
a role model, he is exactly why we
need to give people of all races a
chance to contribute. Our community
would not be the same without him.
Much like the "Beach Runner,
Ernie Barnes" Coach Miller is no
where close to the end of his run. As
he continues to give his time to our
community, the knowledge, passion
and love for his fellow man that he
shares will spread and grow, spread-
ing throughout the area and the
nation and being passed on to future
generations of athletes who will
always have a second set of foot-
prints beside them in the sand of their
lives. They will be Coach Ronald
