I will celebrate with a big bash and celebration concert at the Lexington Hotel, downtown Jacksonvilleyoure all invited. Thirty years ago, I led a very popular vocal group called the Village People. Yes, the Y.M.C.A. Macho Man, Village People. I was the Cop. I can recall, it was during that time that I began to notice the phrase, It takes a village or in its more complete form, it takes a village to raise a child. Now, at a time when family and community across America, in cities like Baltimore and Chicago, are in crisis, it seems the village itself is under siege-decimated by drugs, crime and economic decay. In cities from New Hampshire to New Mexico, the opioid epidemic shatters the notion that only brown villages are under attack, as overdoses and skyrocketing suicide rates are burning down villages of all colors. And of course, today, mass incarceration plays a major role in leaving Americas villages in ruins. There has been in this country over the last 30 years a relentless upward climb in the incarcerated population as disturbing as the situation is with the federal prison system, that is really only the tip of the iceberg, because the federal prison system in only about 10 percent of the total number of people incarcerated in this country. On any given day, we have about 2.3 million people behind bars in federal, state and local facilities. David Fathi, ACLU National Prison Project (February 2013) At a time when current immigration policies and detention practices dismantle and destroy the family structure by shipping thousands of undocumented children, thousands of miles from their toddlers into psychological and emotional freefall, the question of the viability of the village has never been more pressing than it is now. The more pressing and inescapable question is what becomes of the child who has no village? Is America, as the shining village on the hill, falling? Has the village failed the child? The origin of the phrase It takes a village to raise a child is said to be in the Southeastern region of Africa. The Sukuma, Bantu speaking people of Tanzania, are credited with composing the phrase on principles typical of African culture, heritage and beliefs. The Swahili version of the saying is It takes more than one knee to raise a child. It shares the same essential principle that the aggregate value of the community forms the basis for well-rounded, properly socialized youth. Im a product of Brooklyn, New York, where my village consisted of family, neighbors, school teachers, church members and small business owners; like the owner of the corner barber shop who was both sage and a surrogate uncle of sorts. I remember Jackie, the barber and I still have fond memories of my schoolmates and my childhood friends and their families. I remember my Sunday School teachers and most of my school teachers, especially Mrs. George, me to the violin, setting and securing the had a positive impact on my life. When a community is safe, and the village members are decent and nurturing; caring about the village and are concerned with the well-being of its young people, the whole is truly greater than the sum of its parts. When everyone is willing and able to do their part and play their role in the village, the principles inherent in It takes a village become a viable model for success. However, when the village collectively loses sight of the children, when there are no knees to climb onto, when fear permeates the neighborhood (the hood), the net result is every man, woman and child for themselves. Gangs replace the village. The streets replace the Y, Boys and Girls Clubs, music lessons, libraries, etc. The village is a living thingan organism, and like all organisms, it requires soundness of form and structure, a source of vital nutrition and an environment conducive to and not hostile to its survival. Or, you can think of the village as an organ. I think of the village as a heart. Its function is to pump oxygen rich blood throughout the body. If the heart is damaged, it cannot distribute fail altogether, leading to death. Today, the issue we face is heart disease. Some of our villages are in dire need of by-pass surgery and in some cases, a transplant. Like a heart deprived of oxygen from the lungs to enrich the what I call opportunity-deprivation or opportunity-starvation. Some villages have lost the opportunity to protect and provide for their children, the opportunity to properly educate and motivate their children, and the opportunity to demonstrate for them, models of success businesses ownership and government and law enforcement populated by people who know them, and look like them. The village must be saved or the culture we hear politicians speak of will be lost and society will fail. School sports without music and art, does not work. Grades without grace and manners, do not work. Law enforcement without respect and dignity, does not work. Justice without fairness and humanity is not justice at all. In a village, honesty and accountability do matter. In a village, God matters. The good news is that medical research has revealed the hearts ability to recover through the process of cell regeneration. Its a slow process but under the right conditions the heart is capable of healing itself. In a village, the conditions conducive to healing and recovery is one of massive doses of love, faith, compassion and the courage to speak up and speak out. The kids have been waiting on us, disappointed by us, yet, theyre still holding out hopedepending on us. They seem to know instinctively, it takes a village... www.milesjaye.net miles.jaye@gmail.com Have a story you want to share? Email us at It Takes a Village By Miles Jaye

Black PR Wire Florida Memorial University Appoints a New Interim President High Blood Pressure and Cholesterol What the Numbers MeanBy Jiaya Ingram About 75 million adults in the U.S. have high blood pressure and cholesterol, and more than half are unaware. Approximately 1,100 people die every day due to causes related to high blood pressure (HBP), and the symptoms are not always apparent. Having pre-hypertension or diabetes only increases your risk of developing HBP, and black men are 50-percent more likely to have those medical conditions. They are also most likely to develop these health aliments and often remain untreated or undiagnosed due to apathy, lack of resources and the challenges that the current healthcare system presents to minority populations. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, here are the numbers that determine whether your blood pressure is in a healthy range. If your blood pressure is less than 120/80 mmHg, it is in a normal range. If your reading is 140/90 mmHg or above, it is too high. If your levels fall within the range of 120/80 to 139/89 mmHg, you may have a condition called prehypertension, which means you are at high risk for high blood pressure. You can check your blood pressure regularly with a home monitoring device and by having regular check-ups with your doctor. It is also important to stay on top of your cholesterol levels. Unchecked, high levels of cholesterol can lead to heart disease and strokes, which claim the lives of approximately 140,000 Americans each year. Healthcare professionals recommend being tested for after the age of 20. Here are the numbers to keep in mind to determine whether your levels are good. Your total cholesterol level should be less than 200(mg/ dL). A reading of 200 to 239(mg/ dL) is considered borderline high and 240(mg/dL) and up is considered high. The goal for your LDL number, which is your bad cholesterol, should be less than 100(md/dL) and your HDL number, which is your good cholesterol should be 60 (mg/ dL) or higher. Obesity, over consumption of alcohol, smoking cigarettes, and excess sodium intake are all factors that could increase your risk of high blood pressure and cholesterol. So, you must maintain a healthy diet and exercise regularly to keep your numbers in check.

JUNE 30, 2018 THE STAR PAGE 10 COMMUNITY Opinions,Announcements, and MoreThe views and information expressed in this column are not necessarily the views of the publisher or advertisers. By: Dr. Jawanza Kunjufu There is a 3 year gap between Black and White students. Many people love to believe its due to income, fatherlessness, educational attainment of the parent and lack of parental involvement. I believe a major reason for the gap is we continue to close schools for the summer as if we are an agrarian economy. Very few Black youth will be farming this summer. If you multiply 3 months by 12 years you will see the 3 year gap. There is nothing wrong with Black youth if their schools remained open during the summer and/or their parents kept them academically engaged. Middle-income parents who value education enroll their children in some type of academic experience during the summer. They also visit libraries, museums, zoos and colleges. Other parents allow their children to sleep longer, play more video games, watch more television and play basketball until they cant see the hoop. These students will have to review the same work they had mastered in May in September. Black parents cannot allow their child to lose 3 months every year. Black parents free! Most museums have discounted days. A male friend of mine shared his experience with me when he took his family to the museum. He wondered why so many people were staring at him. His wife and children had to tell him he was the only Black man in the building! I am appealing to every father to take his children this summer to the library, museum, and the zoo. I am appealing to every mother if he wont, you will. We need every parent to make sure their child reads at least one book per week and to write a book report. I am reminded of the formula Sonya Carson used to develop Ben Carson to become the best pediatric neurosurgeon. This low-income single parent, with a third grade education, had television, read a book and write a report that her sister would grade! I have a theory that I can go into your house and within 5 minutes tell you the type of student who lives there and predict their future. I believe that engineers, doctors, in their house than ballplayers, rappers, and criminals. I am very concerned when I visit a house that has more cds and downloads than books. My company African American Images has designed a special collection of books for boys. Research shows one of the major reasons boys dislike reading is because of the content. The set is titled Best Books for Boys. We also have one for girls, parents and teachers. Enjoy your summer. Lets close the gap. I look forward to your childs teacher asking your child what did you do for the summer? And your child answering we went to the library, museum, zoo, colleges and other great educational places. Author of There is Nothing Wrong With Black Students, Changing School Culture For Black Males, Raising Black Boys And Raising Black Girls What Black Parents Must Do This Summer Each year, many Americans celebrate the 4th of July. On that day in 1776, it is said that The Land of the Free was born. Independence Day has been smothered in hot dogs, barbecue ribs and potato salad. And economic forces that served as midwife to the birth of this nation. Four hundred years ago, Europeans invaded the Atlantic coast of North America and fought each other and the indigenous peoples for control of the land. By 1763, the British had made deals or driven everyone else out so that they controlled the entire coast. This included Canada and Florida, which the British obtained by treaty from France and Spain, respectively, at the end waged by the colonial powers of Europe for control of the rest of the world. Nine years after Britain gained control of the entire Atlantic seaboard, its colonists in North America were rocked by the news of a decision in the British high court that sounded the death knell for chattel slavery in the British Empire. This decision was the result of a case known as Somerset v. Stewart. James Somerset was a West African held in slavery by a Norfolk, Va., Stewart. Stewart had taken Somerset with him when he sailed to England on business in 1769. Somerset escaped in 1771 while in England, but Stewart recaptured him and had him imprisoned on a ship due to sail for Jamaica. Somerset had been baptized while in England and his godparents helped him sue for his release. The Lord Chief Justice of the high court ruled in 1772 that slavery was contrary to Common Law and therefore illegal in England. Somerset was freed, and the news spread quickly to America. By early 1773, enslaved African Americans began to petition for their release in courts in the colonies, hoping to repeat Somersets success. The slaveholding British colonists were alarmed at these developments and believed correctly that the British Empire was on the path to ending chattel slavery. By taking their revolutionary stance, the colonists hoped to free themselves and their slavebased economy from the inevitable arrival of abolition in the Empire. Every red, white and blue American knows the narrative of how the freedom yoke of oppression. Some narratives even recount faithful slaves cheering them on. PBS and others have reported that 5,000 African Americans served in the Continental Army. But many thousands more ran away to The Revolutionary War did not end until two years after the Battle of Yorktown in 1781. As British troops were evacuating New York City in 1783, they took with them, from that port alone, 3,000 former slaves who had supported the crown. The names of these African Americans were documented in the Book of Negroes as they boarded the ships bound for Nova Scotia and the British West Indies. An accurate record of these former slaves was kept because of a dispute between George Washington and Sir Guy Carleton, the British commander in charge of the evacuation of New York. Southern colonials had insisted that the treaty ending the war include a provision for the return of escaped African Americans to their slaveholders. Carleton refused to comply with that provision and was backed up by Lord Frederick North, the British Secretary of State who wrote to him that transporting the runaways from the land of their oppression was certainly an act of justice due to them from us On the other hand, Washington and other slaveholders believed they had been robbed of what was rightfully theirs. After his complained in a letter to the governor of Virginia: [T]he slaves who have absconded from their masters will never be restored to them. So, while you are enjoying your grilled moment to consider the facts of how and why this nation came to be. Maintaining slavery, as an economic institution, was the major driving force for the desire for Independence from England at least for the Southern states. And it is fair to say that the Stars and Stripes were stitched together in large part by the sting of the lash upon black backs. It is important to accurately recall and understand these facts in our history if we hope to make meaningful progress towards a better future. ________________________________ Oscar H.

NOW HIRING Amid all the confusion about zero toler ance and executive orders over the crisis at the border, one thing is clear. At least 2000 children are still detained away from their parents in shelters across the country. Many -no one knows exactly how many -are under age 5 housed in Tender Age shelters they are safe and well cared for, but nothing could be further from the truth. Years of research shows us that group care, is harmful to children of all ages and especially toxic for infants and young children. that shelters provide nutrition, hygiene, and medical care. This isnt enough. Children need consistent and individualized care from loving adults. Deprived of these experienc es, a young childs development is derailed. Group care facilities, with constantly changeven under the best of circumstances. Studies of children in institutions show the long-lasting harm caused by these conditions. One of these, the Bucharest Early Institutions to those removed and placed with families. Children in facilities lagged behind children in families as measured by IQ, language, growth, social abilities, and serious emotional and behavioral problems. These children also were shown to have structural and functional changes in their brains that were associated with subsequent health and prolonged group care were still evident years after the childrens exposure to early institu tional rearing. The clear conclusion from this and related studies is that, for young chil dren, individualized and committed caregiv ing that can only be provided by a family is essential for healthy brain development. The longer the child is subjected to these conditions, the greater the risk of long-term harm. These young children at the border have had multiple traumatic experiences even before being separated from their parents. For young children, parents provide an esfeelings of safety. Separating children from parents removes their most important proJust when children need parents most, they are completely deprived of consistent caring relationships. And, as we have seen, this is not a short-term problem. Cumulative stressors and traumas substantially increase risk for compromising their mental and physical health decades later. This is why at least 24 jurisdictions severely restrict the use of group care for children who have been removed from their parents care because of abuse or neglect. This situation is urgent. For policymakers, months may seem like no time at all. For young children a week is an unimaginably long period. Because of their developmental stage, they will experience these separations as permanent and grieve as they would at the death of a parent. While these facilities are called shelters, experience has shown that, once public scrutiny ends, children spend weeks, months and even years in so-called short-term facilities. Any delay in reunifying these babies with their parents is unacceptable. Every day the harm increases. The government must immediately reunify these children and perma nently end the use of this kind of detention center for young children. for Young Children CLASSIFIED FLORIDA STATEWIDE Lung Cancer?

Mr. Sollie Mitchell has brought much joy and happiness to so many people throughout his life on this Earth. Sollie Mitchell NEVER gave up! Those of us following We must NOT give up either. Florida State Senator, Anthony Tony Hill Mr. Sollie Mitchell, it is with great pleasure that I have had the honor of knowing you for over 37 years and now being the President of the Jacksonville Chapter of A. Philip Randolph Institute where you hold membership. I value and appreciate the knowledge of the history you have shared with me over the years of your relationship with Mr. Randolph and the many historical moments youve been a part of with the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters.
