Jacksonville police are faced with
yet another murder which, if not
solved in the near future will
stretch the list of murders the law
enforcement officers of this city
have failed ta solved.

The latest murder victim as of
9:50 p.m. Tuesday was Sabrina
Glover, 17, who lived in the River
Oaks apartment complex at 11291
Harts Rd.

Responding to a call, Sgt. J.L.
Burt found Ms. Glover in the
bathtub of her home dead, with
several lacerations on her throat.
The victim's sister, Romano
Hines, who lived at the same

address told investigating officers

that she and her mother, Murriel
Glover, left the apartment earlier in
the morning--about 6:10 a.m.-for
Woodbine, Ga., where the mother

Hines said she left her sister

[ Celebrate Black History
By Making More History

First it was a week. Now it's a month. For 28 days out of 365 the
subject of Black History is finally taught in our schools, discussed in
our museums and covered in a few safe TV specials. From Crispus
Attucks to Harriet Tubman to (less often) Malcolm X, we suddenly
hear of all those African American descent whom we should have
heard about, consistently, the other 337 days. Usually, however, the
concentration is on those who are now dead or on our more notable
national leaders. That's great. But, for a moment, let us also think
about some of the folks--in our own backyards--who are still living
and who, through their actions, are current makers of Black history.

In Washington, D.C. there's Mrs. Kimi Gray, who started the
Kenilworth Courts Tenants Association because she was tired of the
poor condition of the housing project in which she lived. The
apartments were poorly maintained and nobody seemed to care.

Fed up, she began organizing the tenants. Now, in what has become
a national model, Mrs. Gray and other residents of Kenilworth Courts

well. As the mother of 5 children, she was also concerned with the
future of the youth who grew up in Kenilworth Courts. Mrs. Gray
spearheaded a program called "College Here | Come” and, as a
result, the young people of Kenilworth Courts are now going on to
college. In fact, one young man, a former high school drop-out,
recently graduated from Howard University's School of Architecture
and is directing the renovation work at the housing project. Mrs. Gray
is making Black history. :

In Alabama, the work of Attys. Hank and Rose Sanders is everywhere
in evidence. Hank Sanders is the first black state Senator to be elected
from the western Alabama Black Belt since Reconstruction. He was
born and raised in the South and remembers well the civil rights
struggles of the past. Throughout the state he is known as one of the
best and most accountable politicians in Alabama.

Meanwhile his wife, Atty. Rose Sanders, in the midst of carrying on
her daily law practice, has also begun MOMS, which stands for
Mothers of Many. Among MOMS’ many projects is a pre-school,
after-school and cultural center where children learn not only the
three R's but alsc their history, their culture, and their responsibilities
as African American youth. MOMS also organized a young adult
theater troupe. In the play "Baby Cakes”, for which Rose Sanders
wrote both the script and a lively score, the young actors treat
everything from teenage pregnancy to the legacy of the Civil Rights

«Movement. The Sanders family is also making Black history.

In Los Angeles, there is noted actress Saundra Sharp.

Though in a business where taking a stand puts one's livelihood at
risk, Ms. Sharpe has never yielded on her personal commitment to
improve the image of the African American community in TV and film.
She ‘has been particularly outspoken against images that are
psychologically damaging to Black children. She helped found the
former Black Anti-Defamation Coalition. Now she works with the
Wastern States Black Research Center and its Black American
Cinema Society, both headed by Mayme Clayton. In this way she
continues to organize support for films which more realistically
depict the African American community.

In New York we have Attorneys C. Vernon Mason and Alton Maddox.
In police brutality cases and in cases involving racist violence these
African American attorneys have used their considerable talents in
behalf of the African American community. Most recently they have
represented the victims of the Howard Beach, Queens attack in which
two Black men were brutally beaten and one was stalked to his death.
The attorneys were viciously attacked for their refusal to cooperate
with a corrupt District Attorney and for their demand for a Special
Prosecutor was finally appointed and his investigation has led to a
grand jury investigation.

Mrs. Gray, the Sanders, Ms. Sharpe, and Attorneys Mason and
Maddox are but a few of the many African Americans who are
currently making history. Let us study them as well as the many great
figures of the past, and let us study them not just for 28 days, but every
day of the year. And remember, the best way to celebrate Black
history is to make more history.

Georgia March
Cost $679,148

ATLANTA (AP)—State and local
agencies spent more than
$679,148 last month to protect civil
rights marchers in all-white
Forsyth County, the governor's
office said last week.

Almost half of that went to
transport, pay and equip 1,700
National Guardsmen who
surrounded 25,000 marchers as
they walked just over a mile to the
courthouse square in Cumming
on Jan. 24.

Meanwhile, tte president of the
Cumming-Forsyth County
Chamber of Commerce said six
members of a county relations of
commission would be named.
That Commission, established by
city and county governing bodies
on Jan. 19, will serve as the
community's representatives on a
biracial committee to be created in
response to a demand by the
“Coalition Against Fear and
Intimidation” which coordinated
the Jan. 24 march.

Chamber President Roger Crow
said the six member commission
will have representatives
appointed by the city council,
county commission, chamber,
civic clubs, religious community
and the board of education.
The coalition, led by the Rev.
Hosea Williams and other civil
rights activists, had called for a
biracial committee to study
Forsyth County's racial practices
in business and housing.
It also called for finding and
reimbursing the families, or heirs,
of blacks who were run out of the
county in 1912 following the death

she had been raped by three black

including $78,980 in salaries for
about 150 agents, she said. Costs
for the state patrol, which sent 148

march began and had about 350

troopers in the area, was $69,500.

Affirmative Action Ordinance Ignored
Says Councilwoman Deitra Micks

Blacks, women and: other
minorities are being unfairly
locked out of top-level admini-
strative jobs with the city because
the affirmative action ordinance is
being deliberately ignored and

That's the view of Councilwoman
Deitra Micks who says she'll be
filing bills to "correct that

“It's just ridiculous,” Micks said
Wednesday, “We're almost at the
same place we were (when the
ordinance was adopted in 1976)."”

The affirmative action law, as it
relates to the job advancement of
minorities, holds that candidates
who take a given test for
promotion should be listed on a
pass/fail basis. But in the fire
department and most other city
agencies test results rank the
highest to lowest scorers and
those at the top of the list are
chosen for promotions.

"They're violating the law,” said
Winston Nash, a firefighter
engineer who has been criticizing
the city’s current contract with its
fire and rescue personnel because
it allows promotions only on the
ranking system--not on the
pass/fail basis ordered by the

affirmative action laws.

"It's plain racism and favoritism,”
Nash said. In 1983, he sued the city
in federal court over fire
department promotion policies.
U.S. District Judge John H. Moore
ruled in favor of the city, but in

1986 an apellate court overturned
the ruling and sent the case back
to Moore. A date for retrial has yet
to be set.

Meanwhile, two of Nash's
colleagues--Willie Holloman and
Norris Clemons--just a month ago
filed a federal suit charging the
city with discriminating in job
promotions. Their complaint
charges that although they passed
the firefighter combat lieutenant's
test in 1985, they were not
promoted. The two also claim that
the fire department has violated
the affirmative action plan for
“seven 'or eight vyears.”

Nash hinted that the Jacksonville
Brotherhood of Firefighters--a
group of Black firefighters--will be
making the affirmative action plan
a campaign: issue as the mayoral
and city council campaigns pick
up pace.

"The next mayor must do
something about this,” he said.

because it's not only firefighters

"We'll. make sure it will be in the
forefront of Black community
interest during this election



Deitra Micks
facing this problem. People in the
motor pool and other city
departments are being abused and
don’t even know it.”

Councilwoman Micks said she'll
lobby some other City Council
members to -establish initial
support,” but is willing to take on
the affirmative action issue alone.

Blacks Denied
Police Jobs Get
$4.6 Million

who were denied jobs as Louisville
police officers in the 1970s
because of discrimination may be
paid as much as $4.6 million by the
city under a federal judge's ruling.

U.S. District Judge Charles M.
Allen ruled Friday that 96 people
are eligible to receive the money.

The lawsuit was filed in 1974
claiming the police department
had discriminated against blacks
in recruiting and hiring. In 1979,
Allen ruled in favor of the plaintiffs
and ordered the department to
hire one black recruit for every two
white recruits.

The next year, Allen ordered
compensation for police officers
who had been hired, but who had
been discriminated against in
discipline and promotions.

The Department of Justice has filed three lawsuits seeking to require
three Richmond restaurant-nightciubs to admit black patrons on an
equal basis with whites.

Assistant Attorney General William Bradford Reynolds, head of the
Department's Civil Rights Division, said consent decrees were obtained
in two of the cases.

The complaints and consent decrees were filed with the U.S. District
Court in Richmond. The complaints seek to enforce Title || of the Civil
Rights Act of 1964.

Named as defendants in the two suits which will be resolved upon the
court's approval of the consent decrees were:

--Loose Moose Tavern, Inc., and Lloyd Van Parker, Jr., and Barry L.
Patterson, secretary and president, respectively; and

--Topsubs, Inc., which operates My Fair Lady restaurant, and Lloyd A.
Bryant, its president and treasurer.

Defendants in the third action were Greca Ltd. and Orestis
Markogiannakis, its president.

The suits said the defendants required black patrons to pay cover
charges and discouraged blacks as patrons.

The consent decrees enjoin the clubs from refusing to admit blacks on
an equal basis with whites and require them to post notices at their
entrances that the clubs are open to all patrons without regard to race or
color. All advertising must contain similar statements.

Employees are dlso to be made aware, in writing, of the suit and consent

President Reagan's Budget:

Blueprint For Human Suffering

Each day, it becomes increasingly clear that President Reagan's
proposed budget totaling over one trillion dollars will place a
disproportionate burden on the poor in our nation.

The President has again determined in his budget that the Defense
Department will have priority over domestic needs.

In this connection, the budget will accelerate this expansion of the poor
already in excess of 25 million and will expand frustrations and
alienation in an already frustrated segment of our country.

In line with this, the number of persons who need public assistance will
expand and unemployment will continue to escalate among the nation’s

A fundamental question that arises when one reviews the President's
Budget is what has happened to the ‘safety net’ that he proposed five
years ago to lighten the load for the nation’s poor and jobless?

The plight on the jobless and those on public assistance will surely
increase, given the President's budget and the draconian
unprecedented cuts that will be required in order to meet the deficit
reduction requirements.

This legislation would mean profound cuts in Headstart, housing
subsidies, pell grants, student loans, veteran's medical care, and other
vital areas necessary for promoting the common good.

Again, one must ask , where is the President's "safety net” when
necessary federal assistance is, in fact, removed from the cities and
states of our nation?

The fact that over 25 million Americans live in bleak poverty and
approximately 6.7 million are unemployed must be viewed as totally
unacceptable in the most prosperous nation on the face of the Earth.

It is tragic indeed that the President's budget does not address the real
needs and necessities of the citizenry. For them, in the words of one of
our former Presidents, Franklin D. Roosevelt, they remain ill-housed, ill-
clad, and ill-nourished.

Black History Month

Black History Month rolls around every year, but this year it has a
special significance, for the message of black accomplishment and the
record of struggle against racism have a new relevance in 1987.

The nationwide black efforts to revitalize our depressed communities
will take new heart from the focus on black history's role models and
from its message of excellence and achievement in the face of

opolession. :
his is the month to remember the unsung heroes of the black past--the

people who learned to read and write in defiance of the slavemasters, the
people who tilled farms, built roads, and fought in America's wars, the
people who never allowed discrimination to prevent them from instilling
sound values and dignified prife in their children.

Recalling the black past they built gives impetus to today’s struggle to
preserve black families and black institutions in the face of social
disorders and economic hardship.

And all Americans need to be reminded of the past, especially of the
struggles to win elementary rights. That's important to note at a time

when some of the headlines in the news could have from newspapers of
twenty years ago, when blacks and their white allies were still trying to
topple entrenched segregation.

For example, as the nation celebrated Martin Luther King, Jr.'s
birthday, national attention was being focused on ‘Forsyth County,
Georgia, a place whose sole claim to fame appears to be its refusal to
allow blacks to live there.

As in the 1960s, whites and blacks marched together for brotherhood.
And they were once again met by stone-throwing mobs and vicious
Klansmen. This wasn't an old newsreel--it is happening in 1987.

This month, in schools across the country, Black History Month
programs will be held. In some of them, the civil rights drives of the 1950s
and 1960s will be highlighted.

I hope those responsible for the presentations talk about the Forsyth
Counties of America--the places where blacks are not welcome, where
housing and job discrimination flourish, and where violence in defense
of racial supermacy is still in fashion.

Today's young people--black and white--need to be made aware of the
persistence of racism and of the need to constantly combat it.

They need to be taught that segregation was not destroyed and racism

* made unfashionable because a few laws were passed from above. Those

welcome developments came about because masses of people--black
and white--stood up for what they believed in and marched and
demonstrated and fought: until the laws had to be passed.

And because ot that mass coalition of concern and conscience,
America is now much closer to its national aspirations than it was before
the civil rights movement began.

But the job of securing equal rights is far from over; the Forsyth
Counties still remain--pockets of hard-edged segregation that time has
passed by and which warn us that the bitter past can return unless we are

The problems black people overcame in the past have their
counterparts in today’s struggles--whether they relate to bringing the
Forsyth Counties into this pluralistic nation or whether they relate to the
continuing struggle to overcome economic disadvantage.

So this is no time for tameness in celebrating Black History Month. The

serious problems confronting the black community today make it
necessary to establish connections between the struggles of our
forebears and those of today’s black citizens.

Great expectations. Personal
affairs seem to hit a snag; it will
take patience and understanding
to right a few wrongs that emerge
as the week opens. Perhaps you
expected too much from a partner
or a work situation-or even from
yourself When the Sun enters

confidence gets a boost, and so
will long-range plans. Travel could
be part of the broad picture, as well
as intellectual pursuits. A fun-

with a chance to get away and
enjoy children’s activities, a
sporting event or even a romantic
night on the town. It might be just

"The President Said”
But Here Are The Facts

As expected, the President's
State of the Union address to the
nation was upbeat and non-
specific. The President even
closed with a wonderful quote
from Ben Franklin in the
Continental Congress characteri-
zing the birth of America as a
"rising sun".

But also as expected, the speech
was filled with a chock full of
misleading and inaccurate
remarks. The House Budget
Committee released a report
taking the President to task in
some of his remarks. The
following passages are excepted
from the report:

The President Said: "For starters,
the Federal deficit is outrageous.
For years I've asked that we stop
pushing onto children the
excesses of our government.
But Here Are The Facts: The
outrageous deficit is President
Reagan's. The national debt has
already doubled during his term;
or to put itanother way, in six short
years he added to the national
debt as much as all the President's
before him. .

The President Said: “The
unemployment rate-still too high-
is the lowest in seven years..."
But Here Are The Facts: All the
President is really saying is that
the unemployment rate (currently
6.7 percent) is the lowest it has
been during his administration
plus the last few months of the
Carter administration. What the
President doesn’t mention is the
lowest unemployment rate during
his administration is higher than
the Carter administration average
of 6.5 percent and the postwar
average of 53 percent. The
average unemployment rate
during the Reagan administration
has been 8.1 percent.

The. President Said;..."Our
people have created nearly 13

--million new jobs.” But Here Are

The Facts: The President is
confusing his promises with what
actually happened. In March 1981,
the President promised that 13
million jobs would be created by
1986. In fact, only 10.3 million have
been created in the last six years,
which is below the 10.6 million
jobs created in four years during
the Carter administration. Many of
the new jobs created have been
low paying..nearly 60 percent took
place in jobs paying less than
$7,000 per year.

The President Said: "We must
demand more of ourselves and our
children by raising literacy levels
dramatically by the year 2000.”
‘But Here Are The Facts:The
President's budget would cut

education by 28 percent including
a $1.3 billion (18 percent
reduction) in Federal funds for
elementary and secondary
education and a $3.7 billion or 45
percent reduction in college
student assistance.

The President Said: "We must
enable our workers to adapt to the
rapidly changing nature of the
| will propose
substantial new federal commit-
ments keyed to retraining and job

But Here Are the Facts: The
President's budget indicates that
he will propose a new $980 million
program for dislocated workers to
serve 700,000 people. this new
program would replace two
smaller ones currently funded at a
total of $351 million and serving
300,000 participants. The
President's budget is moving in
the right direction but still falls

The report went on to highlight
other inaccuracies on issues such
as health care, welfare reforms,
homelessness, defense, and the
trade deficit. The President's
speech and his budget leave little
hope for many America's who
‘need much more than nice
sounding rhetoric. The homeless,
the unemployed, the underpaid
worker, mothers struggling on
public assistance, illiterate youth
and malnourished infants see a
different America. They would like
to see a rising sun too. But, the
President's budget-with its
meager spending for human
investment-dashes this hopeful
vision... oe

National Child Passenger
Safety Awareness Week

Collisions are not the only reason
to restrain children. If a driver is
forced to swerve, an unbelted
child will be thrown around (or
even out of) the vehicle. Injuries
resulting from this frequent
driving maneuver could be
avoided if a child is fastened in a
safety seat. Children not only get
injured in accidents, they can also
cause them. An unrestrained
youngster can distract the driver
and cause him or her to stop
concentrating on the road.

When used correctly, these
safety devices reduced fatalities
by as much as 70 percent and
serious injuries by more than 60
percent, according to a National
Highway Traffic Safety Admini-
stration report on the effective-
ness of safety seats.

There are several types of child
safety seats. Convertible safety
seats can be used from birth to
about four years or a weight of

- approximately 40 pounds. The
seats should face the back of the
when used for infants but can be
converted to a forward-facing seat
for toddlers. Toddler safety seats
are for children who can sit up
without support (about 20 to 43
pounds). Approved seats of this

type have a five-point harness and |

i may have an adjustable shield.
These seats are used facing

. forward. Booster safety seats also = |!
Leah EL themselves.

face forward and are made for
children weighing 30 to 60
pounds. These seats have a partial
shield in front but no back.

The National Sefety Council
recommends the following
guidelines for correct use of child
safety seats:

* Read the manufacturer's
directions and follow them
carefully Be sure you understand
how the seat works and needs to
be installed.

*Secure the seat with the
vehicle's safety belt exactly
according to the instructions
(Some models may have a tether
that must be attached to keep a
child from being thrown forward
on impact or a sudden stop.)

*Place the child's seat in the
vehicle's back seat--that is the

- safest location.

* Check the fit of the safety seatin
your vehicle. You won't be able to
install .it safely unless if fits

* Try the seat for size on your
child to make sure he or she is

*. Protect your child with the
harness or shield. If the seat is
equipped with both, use both.

By always buckling your safety
belt you set a good example for

. your children. Protect yourself for

your children’s sake, and get them
into the habit of

HRS Launches Program
Aimed At Pregnant Women

TALLAHASSEE—A three-month
effort to inform pregnant women
about its Special Supplemental
Food Program for Women, Infants
and Children, called WIC, is being
launched by the Department of
Health and Rehabilitative Service

"Radio and television public
service announcements will be
aired during February, March and
April,” said Ann Rhode, Florida
WIC Program administrator, "and
150,000 posters and brochures are
being distributed.”

WIC is a federally supported
health program that provides
high-nutrition foods to pregnant
women, women who recently have
given birth, breastfeeding women,
infants and children up age five.
The campaign focuses on

enrolling more pregnant women.

"Only 13% of our participants are

pregnant women,” Rhode said.

"We want to increase that to at
least 17%. Pregnant women
especially need the foods and

nutrition education provided by
the WIC Program because good
nutrition during pregnancy
improves their chances of
delivering healthy babies.”

WIC participants receive checks
for use at authorized grocery
stores to buy specific foods. These
include milk, cheese, eggs, cereal
and fruit juice, all foods that
supply important nutrients such as
protein, calcium, iron and vitamin

WIC is a free program. Applicants
must meet income guidelines and
be examined by a doctor, nurse or
nutritionist to determine if they
have a special nutritional need for
the WIC foods. Standards for
participation in the WIC Program
are the same for everyone
regardless of race, color, national
origin, age, sex or handicap.

The WIC Program is availabe in
this area. For more information
call the Duval County Health’ Unit
at 630-3290 or call this toll-free

NAACP Officials
Boycott Over White

School Superintendent

SENATOBIA, Miss. (AP)—State
NAACP officials say schools and
business will be boycotted if the
school board does not revoke the
promotion of a white educator to
assistant superintendent.

"We will come here and close the
schools down until we get justice,
until we get respect and until we
get equal treatment,” said Morris
Kinsey, education committee
chairman for the state National
Association for the Advancement
of Colored People.

A group of black parents has
charged the Senatobia School
Board with breaking a pledge that
a black would be named assistant
superintendent after C.R. Rials
retired and his assistant, Mike
Waldrop, became superintendent.

Waldrop announced on Jan. 8
that Howard Railes, a white, would
serve as assistant superintendent.

James Jackson, one of two
blacks on the five-member school
board, has said white board
members promised in October

that a black would succeed
The 1,650-student system is

about 34 percent black, Waldrop
said. One of the system's three
schools has a black principal.

Kinsey said there are no blacksin
administrative positions, and he
told board members at a meeting
Thursday night that they should
reconsider Riales’ appointment.

Kinsey said the assistant
superintendent's job was not
advertised and therefore "denied
individuals the right to apply and
compete” for the job.

He said he had a list of about 300
white and a few blacks who are
illegally attending Senatobia
schools from Panola, DeSoto and
Tunica counties. Without
thosev'ite students, the system's
racial makeup would be about 50-
50, Kinsey said.

The administration “should
reflect at least some representa-
tion of black people,” Kinsey said.
"Taxation without presen tation
will not be tolerated.”

Kinsey said he will file suit in
federal court if the board does not
change "discriminatory practices
that have been used against blacks
since desegregation.

"1 don't know where you've been,

but | know where we're going.
We're going to federal courts with
you,” he said. "We mean exactly
what we say and we will black it
School board president Mills
Carter told Kinsey and a group of
about 40 blacks that the board will
consider their request. :

"We'll get in touch with you,"
Carter said.

Help Maximize Children’s School Performance
With Back-To-School Eye Examination

Vision — A Child’s
Principal Tool For Learning

According to the National Society to Pre-
vent Blindness fully 90 percent of our con-
tact with the world is through the eyes.
And while most of us are aware of, or are
able to detect any eyesight deficiency we
may have, our children may not be able
to detect them.

It is possible that your child’s vision isn’t
as good as you think it is. Often, children
don’t complain of vision problems because
they are not aware of them. They may
always have had blurry or double vision,
or used only one eye.

National research conducted by the
American Health Foundation shows that
20 to 25 percent of children ages 5

‘through 14 have vision problems which,

left untreated, may interfere with learn-
ing. And, this prevalence increases to
31 percent for the 15- to 19-year old
group due to continued physical develop-
ment and strenuous use of the eyes for
near work.

“Before school starts, and before vision
problems have a chance to interfere with
your child’s school perférmance, be sure
he or she receives a thorough eye exam by
an eyecare practitioner,” said Dr. Michael
Simons, vice president of professional af-
fairs, Pearle Vision Center.

“Vision is a child’s principal tool for
learning,” said Dr. Simons. In fact, it is
estimated that 80 percent of learning dur-
ing the first 12 years of life is through see-
ing. Children read, write and work at their
desks, and these learning activities rely
on near vision, he said. “A child who has
20/20 visual acuity for distance vision
could have a near vision problem only
detectable in a thorough exam.”

Children’s Vision Problems

Vision problems among school children
include nearsightedness, or the inability
to see distant objects like the blackboard
clearly; amblyopia, some loss of vision in
one or both eyes; and strabismus, crossed
or wandering eyes. .

Visual experts estimate that as many as
50 to 70 percent of the children classified
as underachievers in school are troubled
by vision problems, primarily caused by
focus accommodation (difficulty focusing
on objects’ near them, generally within
arm’s length) and distance vision

“Parents should be aware, too, that in
some cases these conditions can cause per-
manent vision loss and psychological
damage if not detected and treated at an
early age,” said Dr. Simons.

One In Every 20 Preschoolers
Has Eye Deficiencies

When taking your older children in for
their back-to-school eye examination,
bring your preschoolers along too.
“Preschoolers should be examined by an
eyecare practitioner, even if there are no
visible signs of disorders,” suggests Dr.

The National Society to Prevent Blind-
ness estimates that 468,000 preschoolers,
or one in every 20 children, between the
ages of 3 and 5 have eye problems.

Whether your children wear corrective
lenses or not, during the rush of back-to-
school activity remember to schedule a
thorough eye exam or prescription update
to ensure your child’s visual health and
learning ability. A free “Wheel of Health”
which describes common vision problems
and other vision information is available
at Pearle Vision Centers during August.

was answered by the Florida
Board of Regents, who approved a
masters degree program in that
discipline at the University of

UNF is already offering courses
leading to Master of Science
degrees in Computer Sciences
and Information Systems, and
should award it's first graduate
degrees this summer, said Dr.
Kenneth Martin; director of UNF's
Computer and Information
Sciences Division.

"The Program responds to a well-
documented need for a masters
level program in computer and
information sciences in the
Jacksonville area,” Martin. said.
"We've received numerous
inquiries for a program of this type
here. The business community
has indicated strong support for
this program.”

The program consists of 36

The major track components
consists of five courses
supporting tracks in either
computer science or information

and a thesis requirement (6 hours)
fill out the program.

Martin said the program will
benefit a large number of people in
the region who, because of jobs,
are place-bound and thus unable
to seek advanced degree training
at institutions elsewhere.

Martin said the division's recently

"We were surprised to see some
eight state troopers with walkie-

talkies following us as we got off
the bus and journeyed to the
judicial chamber,” Wead's letter
said. "Does one bus load of black
folk provoke eight National
Guardsmen or police to monitor
all our activities while we are there
for a mere two hours? What would
have happened if we had been a
busload of white citizens from
Nebraska? Would they have been
greeted by state troopers with

In his letter, Chambers said he
knew that a group of white people
could not have been "shepherded
and intimidated by a contingent of
armed troopers behaving as
though a hostile ‘invasion’ were
occurring. Is it more their building
than ours?” Chambers wrote:

"Is there a State Patrol policy
mandating the ‘monitoring’ and
following of black citizens who
visit this building in which | have
an office and where very few b lack
people are employed?”
Chambers noted an incident last
year in which a State Trooper
nearly arrested him when he

became involved in a heated
conversation with former Gov.
Bob Kerrey.

Interracial Dating
Ban Called Racist
At Baptist College

tiny, conservative Baptist College
which discourages interracial
dating is under investigation by
the Minnesota Department of
Human Rights following
complaints from former students.
"From the college's inception (30
years ago), we had disallowed
interracial dating,” said Joseph
Rammel, former president of
Pillsbury Baptist Bible College in
Owatonna. :

Rammell, who resigned Jan. 1

-after 17 years, told the St. Paul

Pioneer Press and Dispatch that
the school had reviewed its dating
policy in recent years, but denied
that the policy discriminated
against black students.

Human Rights Department
investigators opened the case in
October when a woman graduate
complained about the dating
policy, the newspaper said.
The dating policy was cited by
several black football players who
said racism caused them to either
quit the school or be expelled.
The departure of 20 black players
at the end of the first semester in
December leaves only three
blacks on the 300-student
campus: two football players and
the sister of one team member.

In addition to enforcing the
interracial dating policy, the
players said, faculty members and
administrators singled out black
students for demerits more often
than white students.

The school maintains a strict
code of conduct and discipline for
students. The dress code, for
example, requires men to wear
shirts and ties to class and women
must wear skirts. Students are
required to attend chapel every
day, plus three services on
Sundays. Failure to attend results
in demerits, as does disobeying
most rules.

Former players also said blacks
were denigrated during campus
chapel services, noting that a
visiting minister once bragged
from the pulpit that his church was
so good it could “even work with
black students.”

Larry Courtney, the school's
former football coach who began
recruiting black athletes in 1985,

agreed that black students had
been singled out for comments.

"Some things were said from the
pulpit that could be construed as
having racial overtones,” recalled
Courtney, who said he resigned as
coach Dec. 15 because football
funding was cut. "There were
some things said that hurt the kids’

Calvin Addison, a black former
football player who was dating a
white Catholic woman, was
expelled in October after he
received more than 150 demerits,
the threshold for expulsion. The
expulsion was later changed to a
withdrawal after he met with
college officials.

Addison said he felt that his
dating a white woman was
responsible, at least in part, for the
number of demerits he was given
and for his expulsion.

Jackson Blasts
Reagan’s Budget

Rev. Jesse Jackson says President
Reagan evaded issues such as
South Africa and illegal arms sales
to Iran in his recent State of the
Union address.

The former presidential
candidate sharply criticized

Reagan's speech, as well as his
budget and his administration's
foreign policy, during a Portland
speech Sunday night.

"It was not a curtain call for an
actor,” Jackson, founder of the
Rainbow Coalition, said in the
keynote speech to the 70th annual
meeting of Ecumenical Ministeries
of Oregon.

Jackson said Reagan also failed
to address economic injustice in
the United States, an issue that he
said bothers him more than recent
racial violence in this country.
He called on those who are
econoically deprived unfairly,
regardless of color, to band
together to work toward change.
"Harlem and Howard Beach are
the flip side of the same devalued
coin,” Jackson said. "The people
who are trapped must march

Jackson called for a broad-based
alliance between farmers, workers
and racial minorities, repeating a

‘theme he sounded earlier at a

news conference and a meeting
with about 50 members of the
Oregon Rainbown Coalition.
From a podium decorated with
bales of hay and split rails to
represent the plight of the UI.S.
tarmer, Jackson spoke of more
than 600,000 American farmers
who he said had been driven from
their land by economic problems.

be honored with a star on
Hollywood's Walk of Fame.

Micheaux, who died in 1951, is
the first black film director so
honored. He was sponsored by the
Directors Guild of America, which
last year gave him a Golden
Jubilee Award for directorial
excellence. The other recipients

were Federico Fellini of Akira

The star will be presented next

Micheaux made films for black
audiences at a time when theaters
were segregated, and rented the
movies to theaters catering to
blacks. He also rented the movies
to white theaters for late-night

The movies featured all-black
casts, and in a turnabout in the era
when big-studio directors used
whites in black makeup, Micheaux
chose light-skinned blacks to
portray white people in his films.

Born in 1889, Micheaux was a
onetime Pullman porter, farmer
and rancher before he began
making movies in 1919, an eight-
reel version of his own novel, The
Homesteader. His last movie was
Betrayal in 1948.

Among his films was the 1923
silent "Body and Soul,” in which
24-year-old Paul Robeson made
his acting debut.

He often wrote the scripts he
directed, hired his cast, and edited
the final version. When the film
was done, he often’ delivered it
himself to theaters via chauffeured

One way he financed his movies
was by selling stock in his books
and movies to farmers in North
Dakota and lowa who have nver
seen a black person, said film
historian Henry Sampson.
"The difference between
Micheaux and other black
filmmakers of this period can be
found in two factors: his study and
analysis of the black film
audience, business acumen,” said
a statement from the Director's

Little is known about Micheaux’s
personal life. He made a fortune on
his movies, but it was squandered,
and he died so poor that he was
buried in an unmarked grave in
Kansas, his family too poor to
bring the body back to Los

X spotlight Friday February 13, when the 3rd Annual X-Rated.
Critics Organization (XRCO) takes place at the Music Machine nitery
in Tinseltown. The board of judges for this 3rd Annual will in-
clude H.L. Sorrell, Editor of Players Magazine, and they will
be passing their judgment on publications, movies, videos,
etc., in the X-Rated entertainment field to come up with the
winners. Although each year's event has been taped, the awards
program has y~t to be aired as a television special. Maybe this
year it'll be different! The Los Angeles Postal Employees
wrote themselves into the pages of Black History, by launching
their inaugural Black Awareness Week Program to kick off the
celebration of Black History Month. Spearheaded by Ramona Lisa
Thomas, Supervisor of Office Services, and Cosandra Buckner-
Wheeler, Chairperson of the 1987 Black Awareness Committee, the
week long program got underway Stinday February 1 at the First
AME Zion Cathedral Church of Los Angeles with a sensitive and
impressive program of song recitals, choral numbers, and short
talks reflecting on Black History and Black Awareness from the
spiritual field. Monday's program at the Terminal Annex Building
featured songs, recitals, martial arts demonstrations, and a
short play by the Black Awareness Forum, along with special guest
appearances by The Rose Brothers, whose current hit bound
single of "Easy Love" is a hot chart riding record, plus
Arthur Takeall and “Scooter”, former Las Vegas ventriloquist
team currently on an anti-drug presentation tour at Job Corps
Centers around the country. If the success of the first two
days of this week long program was any indication of what the
rest of the week was to be like--without question it was a
fantastic week long program put on by The Black Awareness
Committee of the Los Angeles Postal Service Employees.

Inside information has it that another game of musical chairs is
about to take place with the legendary Temptations. The word
on the streets is that Dennis Edwards is being asked to replace
the fellow who replaced him, after he replaced David Ruffin as
the lead singer of The Temptations! Actor David McKnight feels
as if the new year is off to a flying start with his acting
career. He's been called on to shoot four segments of "Moon-
lighting”, and three segments of “Hill Street Blues”, plus
he'll be seen in the soon to be released feature film "Holly-
wood Shuffle” produced by Robert Townsend of "A Soldier's
Story” fame. Actor Ron Pinkard whose career dates back to the TV
series of “Emergency” and his role as Dr. Mike Morton, has se-
lected Debbie Kennard of San Diego a real life nurse with the
Kaiser Permente Hospital as his wife to be. In the meantime
Ron has been called by TV's "General Hospital's” production
team to shoot several segments of the popular day time ‘soap’

in his recurring role as Detective Sgt. Dodson. Speaking of Ron,

his lovely and charming mom who is also an actress, seems to
have the inside shot on being one of the featured performers

on a new Church's Chicken television commercial going into pro-
duction soon. The new anit-drug and alcohol Public Service An-

nouncements for Los Angeles County's Anti-Drug and Alcohol

Department to be aired over KTLA-TV's Channel 5, features
Arthur Takeall and “Scooter” the former Las Vegas opening act
ventrilioquist team that's currently touring the country con-
ducting anti-drug and substance abuse seminars to youthful
audiences at Job Corps Centers and High Schools.

Valentine's Day will have a special meaning for producers, directors,
actors, and actresses involved in the X-Rated Film and Video In-

and "Devil In Miss Jones, Part 3 & 4", that garnered nine
nominations from the X-Rated Critics Organization for their

Fantasy Il,” with six nominations, and "Sexually Alteres States” and
"Star Angel” with four each. These awards, voted on by a nation-

Check Express on N. Main, wanting to cash a check. The cashier asked
him to sign an I.D. card. He signed "Henry Gates.” The check had
already been endorsed “Theodore Cason,” so the cashier asked the man
to sign again. This time he signed "Theodore Cason.” This was too much
for the cashier, who called police, who booked the man into Duval
County Jail as Henry Gates, 43. (SK)

Black History Month

Senator Lawton Chiles

Mary McLeod Bethune was one of the most remarkable women in
history. A noted educational and civil rights leader, she was an advisor
and official in Pres. Franklin D. Roosevelt's administration. Dr. Bethune
founded the Daytona Normal and Industrial School for Negro Girls in
Daytona Beach which later became Bethune-Cookman College.

Thurgood Marshall served as the director-counsel of the NAACP and
the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund. Now and associate
justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, he is still remembered for leading the
legal battery that won the historic 1954 Brown vs. Board of Education
decision that declared segregation in public schools unconstitutional.

In December 1955, Rosa Parks’ refusal to give a white man herseatona
bus in Montgomery, Ala. became one of the mostsignificant sparkplugs
in black history. Her protest triggered a 381-day bus boycott and
catapulted boycott leader Dr. Martin Luther King into national

These are but three great black Americans who will be celebrated and
recognized during Black History Month this month.

Black Americans have played a vital role in shaping this nation’s
history. The story of black history is of valor in the face of hardships,
courage in the storm of injustice, and faith in the wake of defeat.

There is no single area in American history that is void of contributions
by black Americans. Blacks have helped build America’s greatness in a
wide variety of areas.

They have contributed to this nation’s liberty and freedom. A group
who should certainly be remembered in this light is the over 5,000 free
blacks and slaves who bravely served in the Revolutionary War.

"Duke" Ellington was one of the most talented musical artists of all
time. And Berry Gordy, Jr. founded one of this country’s most successful
record companies--Motown Industries--in the ‘60s which continues to
spotlight some: of America's most talented singers.

American sports also have been enriched by the contributions of black
athletes. From Jackie Robinson to Julius Irving the sports world would
be hollow without their abilities.

Although this month is certainly a time for all races to reflect on the
great achievements of blacks, it is also the time to look to the future. We
must take time to renew our pledge to meet the challenge of fighting
racial injustice, and to judge not on the basis of skin color but on the
basis of heart and soul. It is a battle not easily won, but a battle that must
be fought.

Sen. Lawton Chiles


Last fall, all-out war
was declared against illegal
drugs by this nation’s lead-
ers, but just two-and-a-half
months later the war is los-
ing its bang.

In October Congress
passed a $1.7 billion anti-
drug bill. With fanfare the
President endorsed it. A
‘“‘major victory’’ in the war
on drugs, he proclaimed.

At the time, some won-
dered if pre-election politics
wasn’t at work, whether or
not there wasn’t a pell-mell
rush for headlines and
whether or not a frenzied
bidding war wasn’t under

way -- amendment by
amendment -- driving up the
price tag.

For those of us who had
long been frustrated in ef-
forts to strengthen drug laws
and enforcement, it was not
the motivation but the
results that counted. We wel-
comed the politics of the

But now, to my great
dismay, the administration’s
1988 budget proposal seeks
to replace the big guns aimed
at the drug problem with

The administration has
proposed $913 million in
cuts for drug law enforce-
ment and abuse, prevention,
education. and treatment
programs. In all it would
reduce the federal drug
budget by 23 percent.

Under the proposed
cuts Florida would drop $39
million in drug-fighting as-
sistance next year, including
$7.5 million in law enforce-
ment grants, $3.5 million in
drug prevention and treat-
ment grants, $3.1 in drug
education grants, and about


a $25 million reduction in
drug interdiction efforts by
the U.S. Customs Service.

Last fall, the President
promised a government-
backed war on drugs that
would reach from shore to
shore and into the living-
rooms of every American. I
don’t doubt his good inten-
tions, but an investment
must be made.

The administration
speaks of drug education
and prevention that begins at
home and in the communi-
ty, as well it should. Unfor-
tunately, in the real world we
have youngsters with parents
who don’t recognize the
signs of drug use, some even
with negative parental in-
fluence. What about those
without parents? They
should not be penalized so
early in life for something
out of their control. The
truth is that there is an illicit
drug society out there that
preys on our young.

Being chairman of the
Senate Budget Committee
makes me acutely aware that
our federal deficit requires
cutbacks. But this is the
wrong place to do it. We
have made a strong national
defense a top priority to pro-
vide us peace of mind and
freedom secured. We must
invest in the war on drugs
for the same goals.

Recently, two young
Floridians told me in a
Senate hearing of their ex-
perience with drugs at school
and how federally support-
ed drug programs help them
steer a clean course. We in
Congress will restore the
proposed cuts so that other

"success stories may be lived.

Seven Children Die At Day Care Center

JOHANNESBURG, South ‘Africa (AP)—Strong winds and rain
collapsed the roof of a day care center, crushing to death seven black
children and seriously injuring six others, a newspaper reported last
Thursday Feb. 5.

The children, ages 3 to 5, were eating lunch inside the main hall of the
La-Mmatau Creche and Pre-School at Mmotot-wa Perekisi in far
northern Transvaal province Tuesday because of the rain, the Sowetan
newspaper reported. Normally the children would eat outside.

"The rain was very heavy and we were dishing out food when a strong
wind blew. The wind shook the roof twice before it finally gave in,” said
Alpheus Letsoalo, a worker at the center.

"At that time we were pushing the babies into the nearby classroom.
Then the wall just came down on the babies. It was horrible,” he said.

“We were all very scared and the women were crying as we pulled the
babies from under the bricks,” he said.

The injured, suffering leg fractures and head injuries, were taken to |

hospitals in a school bus because there was no ambulance nearby, the
Sowetan said. »

are contained in the TV series,
Eyes On The Prize that one is
hard-put to isolate just a few. This
magnificent 6-hour documentary
of the Civil Rights Movement
shows, more than anything else,
how the people of this nation, and
particularly the African American
community, became the best that
they could be during this time.
Personal courage and sacrifice,
intelligence and fortitude--all are
represented here, not only in the
leadership, but in the regular
people who sustained the

In the first segment we are shown
Mose Wright, the elderly uncle of
14-year old Emmett Till. Till had
been taken from his bed one night
for saying "Hey, baby" to the wife
of a white store-owner. Till was
later found floating in the
Tallahatchie River. This was
Mississippi in 1954 and no one
expected the white men who killed
him to be convicted, and in fact
they were not. What, made this
case so different was the personal
courage of both Till's mother and
his uncle. Under threat of death
and with no protection, Mose
Wright stood in a tense courtroom
and pointed to the white
murderers. In this lone act of
personal courage he foresha-
dowed the kind of strength and
commitment which would
indelibly mark this period.

In the Montgomery Bus boycott
segment we are shown an entire
black population which refused to
ride the buses for 381 days
because they would no longer be

and decided they just wouldn't

In the school desegregation
segment we hear from the Little
Rock 9, now adults, but then only
teenagers. We hear them speak,
almost off-handedly, of the threats
and the physical violence that they
were subjected to every day when
they integrated Central High
School in Little Rock, Arkansas in

We hear that same courage in the
voices of Black Mississippians as
they explain why they continued
to try to register to vote, even as
their leaders were assassinated,
their homes and churches burned
to the ground. As Unita Blackwell,
now mayor of Mayersville,
Mississippi notes, "| guess our
courage came out because we
didn't have nothin’, so we couldn't
lose nothin’. But we wanted
something for ourselves and for
our children, and so we took a
chance with our lives.”

This deep commitment is echoed
again and again throughout the
series. But it is particularly evident
in the young people. You see it in
the eyes of young demonstrators
in Birmingham, you see it in the
stride of the student sit-in leaders
in Nashville. Young people are not
only the followers, they are the
leaders--the strategists--of this
Movement. :

For this reason it is crucial that
young people, particularly, see
Eyes On The Prize”. They must
know ot the courage and
commitment of others their age
which produced significant
changes in this society. They and


their adult counterparts must also
understand that this kind of
Movement is possible again; and
that they must take an active role
in sustaining it.

As the Rev. C.T. Vivian notes at
the beginning of the program:
"(The Movement) was a clear
engagement between those who
wished the fullness of their
personalities to be met and those
who would destroy us physically
and psychologically. You do not
walk away from that! This was
what Movement meant. Movement
meant that finally we were
encountering on a mass scale the
evil that had been destroying us on
a mass scale.

You do not walk away from that!
You continue to answer it."
As this country experiences a
level of racial violence the depth of
which we haven't seen since the
1960s, we would all do well to heed
those words. EYES ON THE
PRIZE will air for the next few
weeks over PBS television stations
nation-wide. Call your local
station for day and time. Then tell
your friends and your churches--
for the role of the church is
everywhere in evidence. And
gather the family around for a
program whose power and joy you
will not soon forget.

NFL Coaches Come and Go--
But Blacks Have To Stay Put

By Barry Cooper

Not too many years ago, some’
.major colleges and universities
put on their thinking caps and
came to an interesting conclusion:
Since the best high school
basketball players were black, why
not hire a black coach to recruit
and coach them?

It was a simple idea, but the very
idea of having a black man
coaching their teams on national
television was unsettling to some
college presidents. Nevertheless,
change slowly came about.
George Thompson built a
powerhouse at Georgetown.
George Raveling constructed
what may become a championship
team at lowa. John Chaney began
to make things happen at Temple.

Those men are all black, and they
were among the first black
coaches to be hired by large,
predominantly white schools.
Didn’t turn out to be a bad idea,
either. | mean, the alumni didn't
bail out, white students didn't
boycott and the quality of life on
campus went up, not down.

It was as if, those men were
colorless. What they truly are is a
group of men who paid their dues
and learned how to coach. They
can stand on their credentials,
.nothing more.

It is too bad more sports don’t
follnw the load of college

basketball, especially the National
Football League, the most visible
professional sport in America
This offseason, four head
coaches in the NFL were fired. Not
a single black was considered as a
replacement. The NFL's good old
boy network is still very much
intact. Coaches--were fired in
Indianapolis, Tampa Bay and
Kansas City and replacements
were named within days. Owners
in those cities, like Tampa Bay's
Hugh Culverhouse, maintain files
on promising young talent. Sadly,
the resumes from black
candidates are pushed aside, to
the rear, or are not included at all.
As incredible as it may seem, it
appears that in the entire history of
professional football--it's whole
history, mind you that only two
black men have ever been
interviewed for a head coaching
job. The Philadelphia Eagles
talked briefly with Pittsburgh
Steelers’ defensive coordinator
Tony Dungy last year, while the
New Orleans Saints chatted with
Jimmy Raye, who was then
offensive coordinator at Tampa
‘That the Eagles and Saints paid
only lip service to two blacks is not
that offensive. After all, its their
money and the teams can hire
whomever they want. But only two

interviews for blacks, in the entire
history of the NFL? That's
ludicrous. :

There are no signs that suggest
the situation is ever going to get
any better. While more than 50
percent of the players in the NFL
are black, only 10 percent of the
Assistant coaches are black.

Only two blacks have any real
cloutin front office positions. Both
are assistant general managers,
the Washington Redskins’ Bobby
wiiicnell ana the Eagles’ Patrick
Forte. Some would suggest that's
astart. Some would point to that as

All it is, really, is procrastination.
Every NFL team is afraid to take a
chance, to hire someone really
talented who just happens to be

Said former Pittsburgh Steelers
president Dan Rooney: "Every
year, (Commissioner) Pete
Rozelle says we have to do
something, that the NFL looks bad
when it comes to hiring. You can
say anything that you want, but
that is not the way coaches are

Not in the NFL, at least. It would
rather judge a man by the number
of his good old boy contacts and
the color of his skin. Provided, of
course, that his skin color isn't

EWC Snares Double Road Victories;
Tigers Earn Berth In NAIA Tourney

Ask any athlete about winning
and you may get "The game ain't
over until it's over” as an answer.

The Edward Waters College
(EWC)P Tigers Basketball team
staged a series of come-from
behind victories on a road swing
through South Florida February 6-
7 to earn the .school's first
automatic berth in the National
Association of Intercollegiate
Athletes’ (NAIA) championship
tournament on March 1-2
(location. and times were not
scheduled at this printing).

The Tigers ; coached Reginald
Lucas, squeaked past Nova
University on Friday night
February 7, when the Tigers
spoiled Florida Memorial
College's Homecoming outing.
The Tigers upset arch-rival FMC

The victory over ‘the FMC Lions
jettisoned the Tigers to the top of
the NAIA District 25 in Florida.
EWC is third overall in the District
25 in Georgia and Florida, behind
George Southwestern and
Southern Technical Institute.
The Tigers trailed Nova by 21
points with 10:35 left in the game
With 12 seconds remaining on the
clock, and the Tigers behind at91-
88, Lucas went to his bench for the
game saving move.

Tony Manning, EWC's 6-5
forward from Hawthorne, Fla.
playing' his first game since
January 24 (at home against
Nova), hit a three point basket
sending the game into overtime
deadlocked at 91-91.

"With two seconds left in the
game one of Nova's players, Al
Holt, called timeout. But, after |
asked the official to check the
number of timeouts Nova had:
remaining, it was determined that
they had none,” said Lucas.

At that point, EWC's Bobby
Parrish went to the line to shoot
two technical foul shots to assure
victory for the Tigers.

EWC entered the February 7
game tied for first place in District
25 along with FMC.

The game was nip and tuck in the
usual fashion whenever the two
teams square-off for battle. The
Lions had led by as much as 25
points up until the final 10 minutes
of the game.

With 1:24 remaining in the game,
EWC's Earl Sullivan hit a three
point shot to pull the Tigers within
two points. The Tigers got some
hot action from freshman Ronald
Anderson in the last three minutes
in the game.

It was the last second "do or die”
antics of EWC's Richie Cauley and
Angelo Gardener that stole the
show for the Tigers.

Cauley, after a steal, passed to
Gardener who hit a three pointer
with no time left on the clock to lift
EWC to a 102-101 upset victory
over FMC. Lucas said the Tigers’
winning formula included "very
good defense, a lot of hustle, and

heart.” The Tigers defeated

New Heart Pacemaker Leads

GAINES VILLE—Former Miami Dolphins

Morris said. "Therefore it won 1 be

Solve ‘Major Problem

Since its invention three decades
ago, the heart pacemaker helped save
thousands of lives and improved life
for thousands of others.

Wearers of cardiac (heart) pace-
makers have units implanted under
their skin — usually on the right side
of their chest. During the implanta-
tion procedure, one end of a pacing
“lead” contacts the heart, and
the other attaches to the pacemaker.
It is this lead which transmits
the pacing signal from the cardiac
pacemaker to the heart.

Until recently, when this pacing
lead was implanted, inflammation
caused a “high energy threshold.”
Due to the high energy level in order
to function properly, the pacemaker

Rt ig + 4

often had to pace and sense impulses
through thickened or irritated tissue.
The inflammation also robbed stored
battery energy, resulting in shorter
pacemaker life.

In working on the problem, re-
searchers for Minneapolis-based
Medtronic, Inc. — the world’s largest
maker of cardiac heart pacemakers —
found a unique solution. They
developed a series of pacemaker leads
which release a tiny amount of anti-
inflammatory medication directly
onto the heart tissue. These new
leads are called “CapSure”.

These new leads are distinct from
all other leads because inflammation
“thresholds” are significantly lower.


Morris criticized the Reagan
administration's proposed budget
cuts of drug treatment and
enforcement programs. “First
Reagan gave money on TV. After
the first Tuesday in November
(election day), he's then it back,”
Morris said. “That money was
needed for people. Unfortunately,
we just don't give a damn.”
Convicted of trafficking more
than 400 grams of cocaine in 1982,
Morris was sentenced to 20 years
in prison. Four years later, the
Florida Supreme Court decided
that some testimony had been
improperly excluded from
Morris's trial, and granted him a
new trial in 1986. Shortly after the
new trial, Morris was free once

Morris claims he was setup in the
drug deal, and that his star status
worked against him. "The same
people who cheer you at your
wedding will cheer at your
hanging,” Morris said.

Black Schools Cannot Leave NCAA

NEWS ITEM: Black Schools
Threaten To Leave NCAA.
Analysis: It'll never happen.
When the National Collegiate
Athletic Association recently
extended tough new academic
guidelines to include virtually
every historically black college,
some black college administra-
tors reacted with indignation,
yelling cries of, "how dare you!”
toward NCAA headquarters.
The NCAA did dare, and now all
but the tiniest schools--be they
historically black or otherwise--
most adhere to a tough new
academic rule called Proposition
48. Essentially, the rule takes away
the advantage many black schools

longer can accept players who
were not qualified to attend, say,
Georgetown or Notre Dame. Now
everybody must recruit along the
same standards, and many black
college administrators don’t think
that's fair. :
. Perhaps it isn't. But threatening
to leave the NCAA is not the
answer. For years, civil rights
leaders fought for the right to have
black college teams compete on
the same field with predominantly
white schools. To shuck all that
would be ludicrous, especially
when most educators agree that
tougher academic standards for
athletes were necessary.
Black schools will have to adjust

be cowardly.

‘Oil Can’ Boyd Says His
Troubles Are Over

JACKSON, Miss.--Dennis '‘Qil Can’ Boyd, one of the most talented
players in major league baseball but also one of its most troubled, says
only good times are in store for him this season.

Boyd, who played at historically black Jackson State, posted a 16-10
record last season, but the year was ruined for him when the Red Sox
suspended him for a month after what the club termed "erratic behavior”
on Boyd's part.

The suspension came after Boyd went into a tantrum in the Red Sox
clubhouse. He apparently was angry over not having been chosen to
play in the All-Star game. Later, he was involved in a scuffle with Boston
police and was forced by the Red Sox to undergo a series of hospital
tests before returning to the team. :

Now Boyd is looking to start anew and become the dominant pitcher
some think he can be.

"I've got everything under control inside me,” he told reporters. "The
only thing I've got before me is the contract, and that will work out.”

Boyd is seeking a new deal worth $695,000, even though the Red Sox
are offering $555,000. Boyd was paid $375,000 last season.

The Red Sox think Boyd could indeed be in for a big year. Atleast there
are some encouraging signs. Boyd's friends say he seems calmer, more
content with himself than in years.

He has spent the winter working out at Jackson State and has spent the
rest of his time at home with his wife Karen, who is expecting their first

"He's maturing,” said Jackson State Coach Bob Braddy. "Oil Canis a
very hyper and emotional guy, but he brings an intelligence to the

“1 don't like to set goals,” Boyd said. “But I’m going to win 20. This year,
I'm going to win 20.”


Giants Find Super Riches
Almost Beyond Their Reach

NEW YORK—The New York Giants may have won Super Bowl XXI, but
hefty endorsement packages worth millions of dollars aren’t rolling in as
quickly as they thought.

The Giants are learning that it takes more than just football talent to
make money on Wall Street. The Chicago Bears won the 1986 Super
Bow! and some of their players immediately struck it rich.

Quarterback Jim McMahon is said to have earned more than $3 million
from post-Super Bowl endorsements, while lovable defensive tackle
William “The Refrigerator” Perry was equally busy, reportedly earning
more than $2 million.

Nearly all of the Bears had an endorsement or business deal of some
kind going, with McMahon and Perry advertising everything from tacos
to toilet paper.

The same can't be said for the Giants, who outside of New York, haven't
been in very much demand for commercials and such.

Even the Super Bowl itself slipped in the ratings without the Bears
around. This year's game had the lowest ratings of any Super Bowl since
1981. .

"It was just a different situation,” said a spokesman for CBS, which
televised the game. "Last year, everybody knew about the Fridge and
everybody knew about Jim McMahon's headband. We didn’t have those

kind of characters this year.”

Rattlers’ Hubbard:
Will He Return To Coaching?

TALLAHASSEE, Fl.-Not long ago, Rudy Hubbard was on a lot of
people's most-likely to succeed list, atireless coach who won game after
game at historically black Florida A&M despite some of the poorest
resources in the state. :

With each victory his swelled, and why not? In 1977 and 1978, Hubbard
led FAMU to back-to-back national championships, the black college
title in '77 and the NCAA Division I-AA crown the following season.
There also was one 23-1 stretch when FAMU clearly was the class of
black college football.

‘Now Hubbard is out of coaching and bitter, some say, at the way the
Rattlers unceremoniously dumped him following two losing seasons
and growing disenchantment.among the alumni.

Hubbard has said almost nothing publicly about FAMU since leaving
the school after last season. He is still collecting the final paychecks ona
salary that pays him about $48,000 a year.

The payments stop in June, and then Hubbard will have to plot his
future. Will he continue with a budding real estate and office supplies
business or will he return to his first love,coaching?

Only Hubbard really knows, and at least one potential employer is
waiting to hear the answer. Hubbard has a job waiting--as a assistant--at
Akron University any time he wants it. Akron’s Coach, Gerry Faust, sees
Hubbard as one of the finest out-of-football coaches in the country.

"You ask Rudy Hubbard how many times we've called him over the last
six months,” Faust said recently. “| be we've called him six times. That
man is a hell of a football coach. We'd love to have him.”

One More Year For Southern Coach

BATON ROUGE, La.--Historically black Southern University, unwilling
to pay off the final year of Otis Washington's contract, has opted to keep
the football coach for one more season. However, the university
informed Washington that it would not renew his contract when it
expires Jan. 1. It is not clear whether Washington will coach the Jaguars
this season. : :

There is a chance that Washington may be reassigned to other duties at
the school. The Southern University football coaching job is considered
one of the top jobs in the country for black coaches. Washington was
paid $53,000, but drew heat after his team lost four consecutive years to

archrival Grambling. : : :
Meanwhile, ashton is trying to figure out what his role will be at

Southern. : : J :

Southern, Grambling Split
Nearly $500,000

NEW ORLEANS—Officials at Grambling State University and Southern
University say the two schools should each receive about $240,000 from
playing in the 1986 Bayou Classic football game.

The contest, which each year attracts a crowd of more than 50,000 to
the New Orleans Superdome, is regarded as the top black college game
in the country.

Florida A&M and Bethune-Cookman College, who play in the Florida
Classic each year, are expected to earn $200,000 apiece from their game.

Bo Says 'No’ To Tampa Bay's
$5 Million

KANSAS CITY, MO—Former Auburn University star running back Bo
Jackson has again turned down a $5 million offer to play football for the
Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Jackson, the No. 1 pick by the Bucs in last year's NFL draft, opted
instead for minor league baseball and a salary of about $100,000 ayear--
$900,000 less than what the Bucs were offering.

"| have one goal,” Jackson said, “And that's to go to (spring training)
and work as hard as anybody there. | want to outhustle everybody,
outwork everybody and sweat more than anybody. | will achieve that
goal. That's the only goal | have right now.”

Jackson, who won the Heisman Trophy in 1985, spent last year with the
Royals’ Double-A farm club, the Memphis Chicks. He hopes to move up
to the majors this season.

New Rule Pending That Could
Hurt Black Colleges

ANN ARBOR, Mich.--The University of Michigan, which holds
considerable clout in college athletics, is preparing to sponsor a new
rule that could be detrimental to smaller schools, including historically
black universities. ;

Michigan athletic director Don Canham says he plans to push for
legislation that would allow athletes to receive five-year athletic grant-
in-aids instead of the customary four.

Historically black schools, who are expected to fight the legislation, say
the five-year grants would be too costly, adding more than $300,000 in
expenses to their already strapped budgets.

"Bigger schools are doing everything they can to keep us from
ompeting,” said one black college official who requested anonymity. “I
can see this as another step along those lines.”

Canham said a five-year grant is needed to help the athletes. He said
under his plan, they would concentrate on their studies during their
freshman year and then have four years of playing eligibility.

"When we recruit in Detroit, we see families living on dirt floors with a
potbellied stove to keep the house warm,” Canham said. "How can that
student compete with a guy from Grosse Pointe (a wealthy Detroit
suburb.), academically or otherwise?"

Freedom And Social Justice

By Alexander R. Jones

Through Racial Strife A Leader Is Born

a YW -t1da

Q. Is the NCAA doing anything to keep the big schools from buying
players? Mostly, I'm talking about the schools that provide apartments
and cars for players. What's with that “death penalty” the NCAA was
bragging so much about a while back?--M.K. Memphis, Tenn.

A. The NCAA is doing everything it can. Trouble is, so much illegal{
money is out there that the NCAA investigators constantly are paying
catch up. Biggest payment I've heard of is the $85,000 cash offer
allegedly made to a high school star in Texas. It's clear that nobody's
afraid of the NCAA's ballyhooed “death penalty.” Schools that
continuously break the rules will have their programs suspended for two §
years. Most athletics administrators think such an interruption would §
destroy a program. Hence, the ghastly nickname. Such a penalty has yet §
to be given, though, although Southern Methodist has a cash pending. §

Q. You hear so much about the need for having the big center in
college. Can teams with without the big guy?--C.L., New York city.

A. Sure they can. Some coaches, like Eddie Sutton at Kentucky, put §
more emphasis on overall athletic talent than sheer size. Said Sutton in §
Sport magazine: “If | do have a pattern, it would be to recruit people who |
can jump and run away from mistakes. When you have quickness and {|
speed, you can do many more things, especially on defense. Offensively, |
you can always set screens for people to get them open. But you can't
play defense if you can’t move."

Q. How did George Foster lose all the money he made from playing {
professional ' seball?--A.T., Shreveport, La.

A. Forme. New York Mets star Foster, 38, has made several million
dollars playing baseball but is said to be in tough financial shape. He
admits to investing in speculative ventures on his own, ‘most of which §
went sour.

Q. Do players in the National Football League get bonus money simply §
for signing a contract? If so, how much?--D.K., Knoxville, Tenn. |

A. Up-front bonus payments are a very big part of contract jj
negotiations. A few years ago, the average signing bonus for a first- §
round draft pick was more than $500,000. Now owners are trying to do §
away with the bonuses, or at least limit the amounts. It is part of a general
belt-tightening by the NFL, one that could ultimately lead to a player's
strike prior to next season. The players want more freedom of
movement, something approaching total free agency for veterans who
have completed their contracts. However, look for a settlement before
the players take a hike.

Q. If you had to pick an all-time starting five of college basketball
players, who would you choose?--E.E., New York, N.Y.

A. Lew Alcindor--Now Kareem Abdul Jabbar--at center, Mark Aguirre
and Larry Bird at the forwards and David Thompson and Oscar
Robertson at the guards.

Q. Can players with prison records play major-college basketball?--
T.C., Starke, Fla.

A. There's now law against it. | can’t think of an example, but surely
some player has come out of prison, gotten his life together, and gone on
to play college ball.

Q. Are the New Jersey Nets pleased with Pearl Washington?--M.E.,

The NCCJ is a nationwide civic
human relations organization
established to promote individual
and group dignity, cooperation,
mutual understanding and respect
among all peoples and to eliminate
prejudices which disfigure and
distort religious, business, social
and political relations.

It was considered revolutionary
in its day, portraying the lives of
black heroes. It was broadcast
only in Chjcago, between 1948
and 1950, and hasn't been heard
since--until now.

Destination Freedom, a pioneer
black radio drama series, has been
revived by two Howard University
radio producers and an alumnus,
whose work has led to the show's
national premiere.

During February, National Public
Radio is making Destination
Freedom available to more than
300 of its affiliate stations
nationwide to celebrate Black
History Month.

"There are very few black radio
dramas that our listeners get a
chance to hear,” says Donna
Limerick, producer of NPR's
Horizons series, which is carrying
Destination Freedom. "The
producers have turned historical
research into exciting drama.”
. The series of four half-hour
dramatizations focuses on the
struggles and achievements of
Underground Railroad leader
Harriet Tubman, scholar W.E.B.
Du Bois, black and women's rights
activist Mary Church Terrell, and
freedom fighter Denmark Vesey.
By gaining national exposure, the
recreated series also pays tribute
to the program's creator and
writer, the late Richard Durham,
who produced 105 episodes

highlighting the lives of black

By Henry Duvall
To dramatize the weekly Sunday
afternoon broadcasts, Durham

had turned to Chicago's W.E.B. Du
Bois Theater Guild for talent. One
of the original cast members,
veteran actor Oscar Brown Jr.,
served as artistic director and host
of the recently revived series.

Destination Freedom was the
"best black radio drama series
during the Golden Age of Radio,"
says one of the show's producers,
William Barlow, Ph.D., a professor
in Howard University's depart-
ment of radio, television and film,
School of Communications.

"These are radio dramas that
project a positive, even
revolutionary audio image of Afro-
Americans...In fact, they were
specifically developed by Richard
Durham to attack and deflate the
prevailing radio stereotypes of
Afro-Americans,” Barlow

The series was in "stark contrast”
to the stereotyped images of
blacks portrayed in radio
programs such as Amos and Andy,
a popular radio series launched in
the 1920s by WMAQ in Chicago.
Ironically, this was the same
station that broadcast Desti-
nation Freedom” two decades
later, Barlow points out.

But the professor adds, “Richard
Durham had to fight for whatever
positive characters he wanted to

bring to the airways."
"| got goose bumps when | first

heard the dubs (duplicates of the
original recording disks),” says
producer Judi Moore Smith, who's
also on the Howard communica-
tions faculty. "It was a challenge to
contemporarize the series and to
maintain its integrity.” :

Says exetutive producer Lyn
Dyson, a Howard alumnus in the
broadcast production business, "|
think we brought history alive
again. It's a shame it was taken off
the air and that more people didn't
get a chance to hear it."

Asked how it feels to see
Durham's work recreated and
aired nationally, his widow,
Clarice Durham of Chicago notes,
"It's a long time overdue. My
husband was a trailblazer in many
ways. I'm glad that his work will
have national exposure...."”

Prof. Barlow stumbled on
Durham's critically acclaimed
series while doing research for a
book focusing on blacks in the
mass media. He says he made
initial contact with Durham
around 1983 and invited him to
speak at Howard.

They also discussed the
possibility of having Durham's
radio series revived and broadcst
radio series revived and broadcast
nationally. But the author,
journalist and radio dramatist died
in 1984, at age 66, before his hope
could be realized.

Barlow then approached Lyn
Dyson, a 1978 Howard graduate

who founded and is president of
Multi-Media Training Institute, to
find out if his broadcast training
and production organization
would be interested in applying for
funds to produce the series.

Subsequently, -MMTI received
$10,000 from the National
Endowment for the Arts and
another $10,000 from the National
Public Radio's Satellite Program
Development Fund to recreate
four radio dramas from the post-
World War || series.

Two of the original dramas were
technically upgraded, while the
other two--dramatizations on
Harriet Tubman and W.E.B.
DuBois--were completely remade.
In the process, nearly 100 local
actors and actresses auditioned
for parts. Eleven were selected for
the four-part series.

Joni Lee Jones, a lecturer in
Howard's communications
school, won the starring role of
Harriet Tubman. "It was
overwhelming to recreate such a
significant and historical figure--
someone | had read about the
revered,” she stresses.

"| thought it- was important that
we were doing something to
preserve black history,” says
production assistant Joseph P.
Gill, a Howard broadcast
production student.

"This has been the best part of
Destination Freedom. Teaching is
a thankless job! But this project
has been a kind of thank-you.”

Black Youth

It was a recent” Wednesday
afternoon and it was rush hour in
New York City. But this protest
march would not be stopped--
even by New York traffic. Seven
thousand strong we marched
through the streets of New York's
downtown business district to
express our outrage at the white
mob that had brutally beaten
and killed Michael Griffith in
Howard Beach, Queenss New

We had marched last month
through the white enclave of
Howard Beach. But this march
was different. This march was
aimed not at the white residents of
Howard. Beach, but at the African
American community of New
York. This was a march which re-
affirmed that we had passed
beyond the point of any possible
return to complacency. This was a
march that showed that we could
finally stand together. Most
important, however, it was amarch
that was primarily organized and
led by young African Americans--
by a new generation of leadership.

The youth organizers of the
demonstration were ever mindful
to link issues of importance to
them. Even the jumping off point
of the march highlighted this, for it
began at a welfare hotel in the
busy midtown district. It began
there because one of the key
organizers of the march, the
National African Youth Student
Alliance (or NAYSA), has begun
organizing in these hotels against
the inhumane conditions there.
Now those with whom these
young organizers had been
working joined the demonstration,
swelling our ranks.

The spirit of the march remained
strong and positive. There were
some who feared that if so many,
particularly young people came
together around such as explosive
issue as racially motivated
violence, then violence might
ensue. It did not. Certainly the
marchers were justifiably angry.
Many of them were the age of
Michael Griffith and his death
reminded them--yet again--of
their vulnerability in a racist
society. But they were highly
disciplined, and the effective
security force, staffed primarily by

young people, helped set the tone.
This was a march where respect
was emphasized and clearly in

Also clear was the energy and the

Takes Lead

impatience of the marchers.
Looking at the youth leading the
front line of the march, chanting
and marching with that insistent
double-step, | was reminded of the
young marchers of Soweto,
South Africa. With this march the
African American youth of the
New York City area served notice
that they will be pushing to the
forefront of decision-making
issues that affect not only young
people, but the “entire African
American community. They spoke
angrily about drugs, education,
unemployment and the homeless.
One of the speakers, a 13-year-
old, had herself lived at the
Martinque Hotel and listed the
dehumanizing conditions which
persist there.

This emerging youth leadership
has historic roots. During the Civil
Rights Movement it was the young
sit-in student leaders who
continued to inject new life-blood
into the organization and protests
of that time. An understanding of
history is important to under-
standing the potential of the
current youth leadership. The
youths who spoke at the march
were extremely aware of this
history. One young woman, Lisa
Williamson, spoke eloquently of
the legacy of resistance
established by militant African
American leaders of the past. She
also referred to the unity theme of
the march when she stressed, "As
a young African woman | know the
importance of joining hands with
strong and committed brothers.
For we cannot win this struggle
unless we fight as one.” As |
looked at her | thought of Fannie
Lou Hamer and Rosa Parks and so
many other Black women who led
the struggle in the past. | also
thought of Martin Luther King, Jr.
and Malcolm X, whose photo
appeared on posters throughout
the demonstration. The march was
a re-affirmation of the philoso-
phies of both these great leaders.
Out of the agony and despair of
the awful situation at Howard
Beach has come a positive
development. The emergence of
the effective organizing -and
mobilizing. ability of these young
freedom fighters in New York City
is a brilliant glimmer of hope. The
national implication is that other

African American youths will,
hopefully, follow their lead.
Equally important, this new youth
leadership will serve to revitalize
and sustain our on-going struggle.

avoid having the dinner on the
weekend, both Charter Day events
were rescheduled to earlier dates.
Robert P. Madison, president and
founder of the Cleveland
architectural firm Robert P.
Madison International, Inc., is one
of the most successful black

-architects. im ithe: country.

Over the many years of his career
he has been involved in projects
totaling $400 million, and today his
firm is the third largest
architectural firm in Ohio.

As the first black to register to
practice architecture in Ohio, he’

clinical investigation of sickle cell
disease was generally recognized,
in the 1940s Dr. Roland Scott and
his colleagues in the department
of pediatrics at Howard University
developed a long-term interest in

The Black Family Revisited

In the midst of the so-
called crisis, why are
Black Family Reunions
on the rise?

When Black folks get together, it

may mean all night conversations
with a carload of folks from the
hometown...or it may mean a
group of 219 decked out in
chinchillas and tux’s dining at the
biggest banquet hall in town.

For the children, cousins you've
never met become instantly
accepted best friends, especially
when introduced as "Your
cousin.” It means being slipped
that crisp five dollar bill from Aunt
Marge to .tuck in your patent
leather purse. It means that head
thumping you can expect from
Uncle Willie, and it always means
you have to "stand up let me see
how much you've grown.”

For teens it means shy glances at
those cute cousins who you can
only admire wistfully--because,
after all, they are your cousins. It
can be a heady feeling because
_your numbers are so long and
strong you go "ces in packs and
dare anyone to .ess with you.

For young mothers...they get to
show off the little one and hear
time-tested advice on raising kids.

Then there are the aunts and
uncles that you love with all your
hearts..who've helped you along
the way, who you couldn't wait to
see when you were preparing to
come home. You look into the
future through them and your
grandparents and see how you will
look, since they share some part of
you, your skin, your nose, your
knobby knees...and your name.

And of course the elders--the
grandparents and the ' great-
grandparents--are usually
pampered and fussed over. But
while they are smiling and
nodding they seem to be thinking
"how wonderful it is to see these
young whippersnappers coming
back with their own families and
children and cars.”

The Black family. It has its
strengths--and by virtue of the fact
that it has weathered family hard
times unknown to other peoples in
recent history--those strengths
appear to outnumber the
weaknesses. Yet in its survival, itis
shrouded under the cloak of “bad
press”, not the least of which was
CBS's airing of the Bill Moyers
Report, "Crisis in the Black

Actually, bad-mouthing anyone
in the Black family is an invitation
to a fight. In general it is
understood ‘that: while |: can: talk

“‘about my mama, sister or brother
you can’t and when you hear me
complaining, you'd best not agree.

"Black people across the country
don't take too well to people
talking about their families,” said
Cathy Stowe, researcher/writer of
"Story of A People,” a syndicated
series on the Black family.

"We interviewed Black people in
New York, Harlem, Washington,
D.C., Chicago, Los Angeles and
North Carolina, in the country and
on city streets--wealthy Black
people, poor Black people, but the
one thing that stood out in my
mind is that Black people are very
defensive about the family. The
idea that the family is being
attacked, being criticized
negatively is something that Black
Americans do not tolerate well.”

Ms. Stowe is writer/producer of
"Story of A People” a four part
series by Black-owned Syndicated
Productions--scheduled to air
during Black History month. She
feels that the experts have been
too clinical when analyzing
statistics about the Black family.

"If they realize how much to heart
Black people take any criticism of
the family, they would have
thought a littler harder about the
way they phrased things and the
broad based conclusions they
came to", Stowe said.

But in the midst of the incessant
chatter about the Black family
falling apart, there has been a
noticeable increase in Black
families coming together. Not just
get together "..we're talking 250
people of all ages, converging on
the home town with red lettered
tee-shirts or a group of 300
returning to slave plantations, or
60 family members boarding the
Love Boat, to cruise to Enseada..or
to the Caribbean, for the annual
family reunion. We're talking
families that are organized--
with..presidents, bank accounts,
historians, planning over the span
of a year--one three day reunion.

How can this be? Black families
going through such elaborate
efforts to come together when
they are in crisis..what is going

"| think that both of these things
are going on at the same ‘time.
There is a hunger for families that
is instinctive,” said Dr. Asa
Hilliard, a psychologist based in
Atlanta, Georgia. "But what is
disturbing is that because so many
family things are not working, the
impression is that Black people
don’t want the family to work..or
that we have made other
decisions.” Dr. Hilliard said that
the conditions outside the family
which make it possible to have

healthy, interactive families have

changed..but the tendency to want
to be family-like remains.
"For example the economic
situation that leaves large
numbers of Black males
unemployed also makes it
impossible to support certain
kinds of family activities, not the
least of which is provision of
support for the nuclear family.”
"When you look at Black male
unemployment rates, which are
running realistically somewhere
up to 50%, that means that half of
the men couldn't even have a date
on regular basis. There are a lot of
outside conditions that make it
impossible for Black people to do
the things they do naturally. But

the will to be together remains in

place. That's typified by the
widespread growth in family
reunions along with naming

ceremonies and a lot of other
things,” Dr. Hilliard affirmed.

Family reunions began a long
time ago on the African continent
before anyone can remember.
According to Dr. Boniface
Obichere, UCLA professor in
African history and an annual
participant of his own family
reunions, in Nigeria, the family
reunion has always been more
than a status report on who is
doing what. Teens are given
advice on what to do, those who
are seeking admissions to
universities or those looking for
work are given advice and from
there every member of the
extended family - takes it upon
himself to gain college entrance or
find a job for the seeker. If
someone needs electricity or
plumbing--those needs are

"In our case among the Ibos,
when we have family reunions, itis
at same time like a cooperative....-
like a self-help organization. We
not only eat, drink, barbecue a
goat and talk for the two or three
days that we are together we also
try to plan the future of the family
and allocate resources to those
who don’t have any. We chart the
course of how these kids are to
progress because if you don't they
will be a burden to you for a long

Dr. Obichere, who lives in Los
Angeles, pays for the school fees
of his cousins in Nigeria. But he
says it's more than throwing
money at problems.

"If your sister is living with your
brother-in-law and it is not
working, you go and find out why.
If it's because he has no job, you
find him one, because he is now a
part of your family. You are your
brother and sister's keeper,” he

He said that the kinship group is
the building block for commu-
nities, and the community or town
in which he lives even has an
annual reunion. Members of the
town all pitch in to raise the
standard of living for one another.

"In the 1950's no .one had
electricity or plumbing. Now we
have those things...and it was
because one brother helped
another brother. If you cannot
afford to build a house or put in
your own electricity it is up to the
community to pitch in. When
somebody dies, itis not the burden
of that family to bury the dead, itis
the responsibility of the
townspeople. You ate expected to
attend the wedding, the funeral,
the reunions. You don’t pick and
choose which...this is not

Dr. Hilliard, who also lived in
Nigeria for six years, agrees. He
said that one thing that African
Americans retained from the
homeland was the "extraordinary
emphasis on both the nuclear and
extended family."

When we get together we act the
same way. If you know what to
look for you'll see Black people
here acting just like Africans act.
In Nigeria | was just as
comfortable at all the family
reunions as | could possibly be
becalse people were doing the
same thing they did when | was in
Texas ..enjoying each, other,”he

Let's peek in‘'on a reunion..of
African Americans in Savannah,

In the small metropolis of
Savannah, a seaport town which
had slaves as it's main import, at
one time, the neat colonial-style
city only holds vague memories of
that era. It's hot and humid. The
time is last August and the Mitchell
Family, after a year of planning,
long distance phone calls, letters,
pooling money and deciding the coming together from
all over.Los Angeles, Arizona,
New York, Chicago.. Typical - of
today’s far flung, jet set family.

Deniece Mitchell is a little
apprehensive about returning to
her reunion..she now wears
shoulder length dread locks.
Deniece is also over forty, and still
childless and single. Having lived
in Los Angeles for a decade, she
could lead a normal lifestyle and
rearely turn a curious glance as
she passed along the street..but
now she was going back to Mom
and Dad and Aunts and Uncles
and gheri-curled male cousins and
perma-waved female cousins. It

was as if she were a little girl again

wishina she could fit in and qreet

relatives without hearing, "Lord
chile, what have you done to your

But Black people have been
raised well, and for them most part
Deniece's family welcomed her
with open arms and ignored the
fact that this child who had always
been known for her long thick hair
chose to wear it nappy.
Her father, Big John, is the
president of the Reunion and as a
well respected elder, his name is
on the Reunion bank account. He
began sending out feeler letters
the year before, asking for

* addresses to make up a complete

mailing list, seeking opinions on
banquet hall choices, picnic spots
and asking for cash to begin the
preparation. Relatives responded,
coordinated itineraries made
reservations on planes and hotels
and on the last weekend in August
the wheels were set in motion--
everybody came home.

"Friday evening was the banquet.
First there was a welcome speech,
then a spiritual which we all sang.
After we ate, there was a special
moment when each person got to
stand up and share thoughts for
two minutes. My sister and |
giggled and coaxed each other to
the front, holding hands like
school girls. Whatever we said |
don't remember, but part of the
greatest joy was just being able to
laugh like the young people we
once were, and know that we were
at home.”

"The emotional part came when
there was a memorial service for
those who had passed on since the
last reunion. My aunt, who's
brother died unexpectedly last fall,
really broke down. It touched us
all,"Deniece remembered.

The next day, everybody
attended the family picnic, where
the children had a chance to romp
and the adults showed off their
culinary prowess.

"There was so much food! In that
Savannah muggy heat there was
my father batting away the smoke
from the grill, ‘cueing up slabs of
ribs. On the tables were rows of
Sock-it-to-me-cakes. German
chocolate’ cakes, sweet potato
pies, salads. There were almost
two hundred people there, but
there was no way we could have
eaten all of that food. Afterwards,
people retired in exhaustion, those
with energy went visiting friends
and relatives from sides of the
family. Some stayed up all night
talking and reminiscing, but we
knew that Sunday Morning, we'd
better find ourselves in church,
“Ms Mitchell said.

"The church service was
beautiful..and while many of us did
not attend regularly--the church
upbringing came out.”

Deniece’s experiences were a lot
like those of Cathy Davis Fields, a
school teacher, and mother of a

toddler, named Ram, who
participated in a reunion on

"Everyone was on their best
behavior and dressed in their
Sunday best. When | walked in my
family was looking so good, | was
really proud. They were singing
Amazing Grace--then they went
into the Negro National Anthem. |
grew up in Presbyterian Church
so | didn't know most of the
hymns, but my father did, and
although he hadn't been in a
church in twenty years he snapped
right back to his roots. They all
knew how to clap and say
‘Amen’.”| said 'ls this my family?”

Ms. Fields said that being in the
presence of 50 family members all
at once gave her a greater sense of
who she was. "| could see where
all these different interchanges
had taken place all across the
country with all these different
individuals to make me what | am
today,”she said.

"People were commenting about
how ‘much | looked like my
grandmother, moreso than any of
her own children. | could see how |
would look in 50 years and | said

Injury, Premature Birth, And Low Birth Weight.


‘Hey, | wouldn't mind looking like

Ms. Fields also laid to rest
something she had been
struggling with for years. Her size.
"My grandmother told me that
she could never remember
weighing less that 160 pounds.
Since that's where | am now, |
said--why bother? | am very proud
of her and wouldn't mind looking
like her at all.”

Ms. Fields said that in her family
she had plenty of strong Black
male role models.which did not
reflect the current myth of the
imcompetent Black male.
"| come from a very strong family.
My ex-husband would say he
couldn't find a job in his field. I'd
tell him that Burger King was
hiring. He'd protest that he had to
have something in a college
somewhere. But my great
grandaddy wasn't like that. He
would put food on the table by any
means necessary. | came from a
long line of strong men and
women--so | had all that strengh to
draw on, but my husband
didn’t,”she said.

Ms. Fields would have been
buttering her biscuits in Indiana
instead of Los Angeles, if it hadn't
been for the resolve of her great
grandfather. _

"We would have been rich. He
owned 1,000 acres of land until a
white man came- on his property
and insulted his wife. Great
grandaddy got a shotgun and blew
the man away--then escaped the
lynch mobs by taking his family to
Los Angeles. That was in the
1940s. When he got here he
couldn't find work, so he picked
cotton in Riverside,”she said. "He
did whatever it took.” Ms. Fields
feels that her grandfather passed
that kind of determination down
throught . eh generations.
In fact, when most Black families
come together they are pleasantly
surprised to see many strong
Black males. Writer/researcher
Cathy Stowe agrees.

"The idea that somehow Black
families traditionally have suffered

from the lack of a male image is a
myth..even with the rise of the
single female head of house-
hold..the man is not present
statistically, but those of us who
know, that he's there, | think
that Black people should not be
fooled into believing some of the
myths White America has
perpetrated. We must all be
vigilant about what's said about

Even more important, says Dr.
Hilliard is what Blagks say to one

“| believe that every time Black
people get together we should
never lose the opportunity to treat
it as an educational event, “Dr.
Hilliard said. "Some part of each
meeting should be teaching each
other what we need to know about
us and what we need to do. If you
get 200 people together and fail to
raise therir consciouness, then. it
becomes an empty exercise.”
