JUNE 23, 2018 THE STAR PAGE 3 By Matthew Larson Assistant Professor of Criminal Justice, Wayne State UniversityJune 19 marks Juneteenth, a celebration of the de facto end of slavery in the United States. For hundreds of thousands of African-Americans stuck in pretrial detention accused but not convicted of a crime, and unable to leave because of coming immediately after Fathers Day, its also a reminder of the loss associated with the forced separation of families. On a very personal level, I know how this separation feels. Every Fathers Day since 2011, Ive been reminded of the unexpected death of my dad at the age of 48. But also on a professional level, as a criminologist who has been researching mass incarceration for the past decade, I understand the disproportionate impact its had on AfricanAmericans, destabilizing black families in the process. Blacks behind bars Juneteenth is a celebration of AfricanAmericans triumph over slavery and access to freedom in the U.S., which occurred in Galveston, Texas, in June of 1865, over two and a half years after President Lincolns Emancipation Proclamation. While Juneteenth is a momentous day in U.S. history, it is important to appreciate that the civil rights and liberties promised to African-Americans have yet to be fully realized. As legal scholar Michelle Alexander forcefully explains, this is a consequence of Jim Crow laws and the proliferation of incarceration that began in the 1970s, including the increase of people placed in pretrial detention and other criminal justice policies. There are 2.3 million people currently incarcerated in American prisons and jails including those not convicted of any crime. Black people comprise 40 percent of them, even though they represent just 13 percent of the U.S. population. Not yet guilty but not free More troubling is the number of incarcerated individuals currently held in jail for crimes of which they have not yet been convicted. In March, the Prison Policy Initiative, a nonpartisan think tank that focuses on mass incarceration, reported that over a half million citizens are languishing in pretrial detention. And like most criminal justice outcomes, the burden of this disproportionately falls on minorities, especially black men and women. In local jails alone, over 300,000 people are awaiting trial for property, drug or public order crimes. And again, these disproportionately from their families, friends and jobs simply because they lack the means to post cash bail the only reason they cant get out. Toll on families It should be no surprise, then, that 1 in 9 black children now has a parent behind bars, compared with the national rate of 1 in 28. And many of these children are at an increased likelihood of experiencing physical and mental health issues, academic struggles and a range of other behavioral problems. Children of incarcerated mothers are also at heightened odds of ending up in foster care and being exposed to other traumas. Being the partner of an incarcerated individual is another often stressful experience that also falls disproportionately on black citizens, particularly women. Some good news The good news is that such injustices are receiving growing attention nationwide. to reduce the harms of the criminal justice system, recently campaigned to raise funds and promote awareness of its Memphis Community Bail Fund project for Fathers Day in part because nearly half a million of the black men behind bars are dads. The aim of the project is to provide both lacking resources to independently secure their pretrial release, with the goal of the recent campaign being the release of jailed fathers so that they could be with their kids for the holiday. Bail funds similar to Just Citys have proliferated throughout the U.S. On one hand, the multiplication of these organizations is encouraging and reason for optimism. On the other, their growth is another reminder that many of the freedoms celebrated on Juneteenth remain unrealized. A long road continues In cities like Detroit, where 1 in 7 adult males is under some form of correctional control in some communities, it is a monumental task to make sense of the shortand long-term impacts of incarceration for black families. Relationships deteriorate. And as a result, so too do so many African-American communities. Lost wages matter to families, but they also matter to communities. The lower tax base that results makes it more like schools, to progress. And with such a large share of individuals removed from some communities due to incarceration, and branded as felons upon their release, these communities lose potential voters and the political capital they carry. They are too often disenfranchised and stripped of their full power and potential. Juneteenth celebrates the freedom of black Americans and the long, hard road they were forced to traverse to gain that freedom. But as criminologists like me have maintained time and again, the U.S. criminal justice system remains biased, albeit implicitly, against them.

PAGE 4 THE STAR JUNE 23, 2018 FAMILY FEATURES If youre like the majority of the population, mobility is something you take for granted. However, once you or a loved one encounters an illness or disability that results in depen dence on a wheelchair, your perspective is likely to change dramatically. Mobility is a major factor in a persons independence, but when illness or injury hinders free movement, even a simple task like running to the store becomes a challenge. Fortunately, there are numerous options you can explore to improve mobility and accessibility if you or a loved one becomes reliant on a wheelchair or other assisted mobility.Ramps in Place of StairsSafety is a primary concern for someone whose mobility is limited. Even minor falls can cause significant injuries, particularly for seniors whose bones tend to be more fragile. When a loved one begins experiencing trouble with the steps, a ramp is a good solution. In fact, ramps arent just for those who are reliant on a wheelchair or other motorized device like a scooter. They are also a good solution for someone who uses a cane or walker, or someone who experiences pain or difficulty maintaining balance on the stairs. Accessible Vehicles and Parking Getting out of the house is an important way to help someone whose mobility is compromised continue to feel connected to the larger world, and practically speaking, even if theyre not physically up to social engagements, chances are that doctors appointments will still be a necessity. However, parking limitations cause major challenges for wheelchair users. Not only is getting in and out of the vehicle a chore, 74 percent of people have personally seen a handicap accessible parking space being improperly used, according to a survey by BraunAbility. As a leading manufacturer of wheelchair accessible vehicles and wheelchair lifts, its Save My Spot campaign works to educate the public about the meaning and importance of handicap accessible parking. In addition to understanding and educating others about the proper usage of handicap accessible parking, chair users may benefit from wheelchair accessible vehicles that provide maximum maneuverability, such as the BraunAbility Pacifica, which delivers the most interior cabin space and widest doorway and ramp for ease of entry and exit.Hand Rails and Grab BarsHand rails add another measure of safety in the home. They can add stability and support on staircases, ramps and other walkways, but theyre also beneficial in areas like the bathroom. A rail or grab bar near the toilet can help steady someone raising or lowering to use the facilities. Similarly, rails in or adjacent to the shower can assist with safe transitions into and out of the stall. Remember to follow all manufacturer instructions for installing rails to ensure they provide adequate support and can bear the weight of the user.Bathroom Modifications Proper hygiene goes a long way toward promoting overall wellness and independence, but a person with limited mobility may struggle using the features of a standard bathroom. In addition to safety rails and grab bars, devices such as shower stools and raised toilet seats can provide needed support. Depending on your circumstances, it may be necessary to consider renovations to include a roll-in tub or seated shower and a vanity with a counter at an accessible height.Wider Doors and HallwaysWhile its not always possible to widen doors and hallways, this is an important consideration for someone who is heavily reliant on a wheelchair or other motorized device. If the chair cant clear hallways and maneuver around corners, a persons access to the home is severely limited, sometimes to the point of needing to find new housing accommodations. When considering whether the doors and hallways will meet your needs, remember to take into account any accessories or equipment, such as an oxygen tank, that may affect the chairs turn radius. Find more ideas to promote independence and mobility at braunability.com/savemyspot. 5 Facts About Handicap-Accessible ParkingHandicap-accessible parking plays a critical role in giving chair users independence and mobility, making it important to understand the rules of the parking lot. To bring aware ness to the challenges wheelchair users face, BraunAbility offers these reminders: 1. The striped lines next to a handicap-accessible parking space indicate it is reserved for a wheelchair -accessible vehicle. These spaces are wider than regular handicap accessible parking spaces, offering room for people to safely lower a ramp and enter and exit their vehicles. 2. There is a difference between handicap accessible parking for cars and wheelchair -accessible vans. When the parking sign says, Accessible Vans, it is reserved for wheelchair -accessible vehicles only. Van accessible spaces are easily identified by a striped access aisle on the passenger side. 3. Some people have hidden disabilities, and it may not be visibly apparent that they need a handicap-accessible spot. Not all people who require handicap parking access are reliant on wheelchairs. These spots are also intended for use by people with disabilities such as deafness or a recent injury. 4. Businesses are required to meet a quota for handicap accessible spots. The number of handicap accessible parking spaces required depends on the total number of parking spaces in the lot, but at least one in every six handicap accessible spaces must be designated for a wheelchair accessible vehicle, according to the American Disabilities Act. 5. Wheelchairs continue to increase in size, requiring more room to maneuver in and out of vehicles, and therefore need extra space in a parking spot for the wheelchair user to safely access a fully deployed ramp.

JUNE 23, 2018 THE STAR PAGE 5 LifeStyle Black Men Share Their Lessons from Fatherhood Educator, author and speaker, Dr. Jawanza Kanjufu, says, We encourage every man to be a responsible father. There has never been a time when we did not need our fathers. the brothers, uncles, cousins, and friends who have become dads over the years and vowed to take care of their children. In interviews this week, we talked to Black men on their perspectives on fatherhood, what they want their children to learn from them and the most essential lessons they learned from their own Dads. Howard John Wesley, 42, is a born and raised native of Chicago. He moved to Washington D.C. to become the pastor of Alfred Street Baptist Church in Alexandria, Virginia. Despite his service to his nearly 10-member congregation and to the community, it is fathering his sons thats among his most greatest callings. Rev. Wesley is a father of two young boys, 13 and 6. Being a father is one of the best roles I have, it is an honor to raise my two sons and no matter how trying being a Dad may be sometimes, I always do my best to remember that, Wesley said. Charles Reyes, 43, is an assistant principal of a high school in Philadelphia. He has been a father for 19 years and is the proud father of had a close and personal relationship with his father. Reyes appreciates his father for setting the tone and being a strong man of the house hold. When asked how his relationship with with his kids he said, I am the kind of father made for me years ago. Also, from Philadelphia, Wade Gordon, 55, has been a father for 31 years and is a father of two adults children. His father passed away when he was very young, but he has amazing memories of him. On this upcoming Fathers Day, his advice to all the fathers is to always cherish the time you have with your kids because you never know when that time will be no longer. I always do my best to be extremely proactive in my kids lives. Three fathers in particular stood out the most in interviews. They are Cortez Holland, 23, Tracy Garrett, 56, and Kirk Riley, 51. All three of these dads experienced unique and traumatizing situations with their children. Cortez Holland had his 5-year-old daughter when he was just a teenager. He says nothing was planned. But his daughter has become his world. Having a daughter at a young age forced me to grow up and I would be lying if I said it wasnt a wakeup call for me and her mother. He and the mother didnt always get along at a child alone was a struggle. He said his relationship with his father was not the best because his father was not around. But that only encouraged him to be the opposite. Tracy Garrett on the other hand had a pretty good relationship with his father and says he has an outstanding relationship with his son. He always pushed his son to follow his dreams and when asked what important lesson he wants his son to always remember him by, it is to never let anyone stop you from your success. Garretts father has always been an advocate for higher education so when his own son received an acceptance letter from Howard University he was thrilled. A year into his sons college career he became aware that his sons GPA had dropped severely and that he could no longer attend school. put a strain on their relationship. But Garrett now looks at it as an unexpected blessing. He said the situation forced him to be less hard on his son and through it all, he discovered his sons hidden love for music. His son, Trey, enrolled in classes at community college and now Garrett is working hard to pay for his sons music lessons. And then theres Kirk Riley, born and raised in New York City. Riley is a father of four and recently experienced one of the most heart-breaking stories a parent can go through. A few months ago, his 21-year-old daughter, Joy Riley, was in a terrible car accident where her entire body went through the front windshield and she was hospitalized for three months. When I got the call, my heart dropped. Me and her mother co-parent and we are no longer together. But this accident brought the entire family together. I called her mother up and she was on the next bus to New York. I prayed every hournight and day and I never left her bed side. Now that she is healed I hope and pray if she learned nothing else from me as her father, she knows the power of prayer and her relationship with God is greater than all.(TriceEdneyWire.com) rr fnrrtb t Rev.

The Richmond School Board on Monday voted 6-1 in favor of changing the name of J.E.B Stuart Elementary School to Barack Obama Elementary. The vote took an interesting turn, with all but one of the seven board members voting in favor of renaming the school in Richmonds northside. That one board member suggested offering more time for the board to go over the top three names suggested by current students, but that motion was deferred. The school board for months has been considering renaming the school, currently named after a slave owner and a prominent Confederate cavalry commander. A committee was created public input sessions were held and an online survey was conducted. Current J.E.B. Stuart Elementary students were a large part of the process; of the for their top three choices. There is no set date for when the name change will go into effect.

(Provided photo) Lawson Calls on State to Cease Efforts to Gut Protections for PreExisting Conditions U.S. Rep. Al Lawson (FL05) joined all 12 Democratic members in Floridas congressional delegation in asking the State of Florida to immediately withdraw from a Texas-led lawsuit aimed at dismantling the nations health care law and eliminating protections for those with pre-existing conditions. In a letter to Gov. Rick Scott, the delegation said the state of Florida was wrong to join in February that would, in effect, take away health care coverage from roughly 130 million Americans, including 7.8 million Floridians with pre-existing conditions. Instead of building additional barriers to keep health care coverage away from those in need, we strongly urge you to withdraw from this reckless lawsuit immediately and work with us to increase consumer protections for the people of Florida and continue to prevent health care plans from discriminating against those with pre-existing conditions, the lawmakers wrote. The lawmakers also called on Scott to expand Medicaid coverage to 800,000 Floridians who desperately need it. We once again implore you to work with us to set a different course and do what is right for the people of Florida, the lawmakers wrote. We urge you to support protections that prohibit insurance companies from charging people higher rates based on their health status, and to expand Medicaid coverage to 800,000 Floridians who desperately need it. Rep. Lawson said it is shameful that Gov. Scott and Republicans are once again working to kill off the Affordable Care Act by eliminating coverage for those with pre-existing conditions. Many Floridians who would otherwise not have health care coverage because of pre-existing conditions, such as cancer, diabetes and asthma, would see their lives disrupted if Republicans had their way, Rep. Lawson every step of the way to make sure that every American has access to affordable health care. In addition to Lawson, the letter was signed by Sen. Bill Nelson, Reps. Kathy Castor, Charlie Crist, Val Demings, Ted Deutch, Lois Frankel, Alcee Hastings, Stephanie Murphy, Darren Soto, Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Frederica Wilson. adults who dont seek help themselves.

A month before the derailment, a state inspector had found problems with the ride, and the roller coaster was ordered to be taken out of service. State inspection reports released show that an inspector last month found excessive corrosion, a damaged seat, and a crack in the track. Those problems, though, were corrected by the time of a follow-up inspection Thursday, according to the reports. Videos posted on social media by witnesses, two people can be seen dangling from the cars seats and metal scaffolding beneath the track. Bystanders gathered under the passengers, stretching out their hands to assure them that help was coming.

Captured is the story of a man who has lived a century of life. Displaying his accomplishments through struggles and his will to succeed, makes this book a pleasurable read. Many thanks to the author who closed her eyes after hearing his many stories and portrayed the journey for all readers to enjoy. Jerome Ballard Sollie Mitchell has been a continuing support for the Masonic Body. He educates the young, provides direction to leaders, and reminds each of us to be thankful for everything we do to improve our world. James Gillard For me, a mere glance at my cousin, Sollie Mitchell, conjures up the words gentle warrior. As soft-spoken as he is, he has been fearless in his approach to his eventual bedazzled life. Sollies example has been an atelier for his family and the Jacksonville community, on how to give of ones self, and preserve ones own individuality. During this monumental celebration, I salute him with my whole heart!! Brenda Kelly SOLLIE MITCHELLS 1st 100 YEARS: A MEMOIR ORDER YOUR BOOK COPY TODAYEmail Marsha Dean Phelts at marshaphelts@aol.com
