EDUCATION Barkley and EVERFI to Redefine How Thousands of Students Learn About AfricanAmerican History and Achievement

WASHINGTON- Hall of Fame basketball player, Emmy Award winning studio analyst, and author Charles Barkley, along with leading education technology provider EVERFI, Inc., Charles Barkley recently announced a partnership to power a new African-American history initiative for high school students throughout the states of Alabama and Mississippi. The 306: African-American History digital course immerses students in a journey in which they learn about the incredible contributions that African-Americans have made in every fabric of American life including public service, the sciences, academia, and the world of the arts, music, and sports. The course is framed to teach the importance of civic engagement so that students develop into future community leaders.

By: Katherine Newman Artspace, Pullman Arts, and Chicago Neighborhood Initiatives recently announced that they will break ground on the Pullman Artspace Lofts in Spring of 2018. The housing development will be located on Langley Ave, just south of 111th St. and is a unique combination of historic preservation and modern construction. The Pullman Artspace Lofts will be made up of 38 affordable apartments and 2,000 square feet of mixed-use community space, according to the Pullman Artspace winter update on the project. This is a rare project because it includes the construction of a new building on an empty lot and the restoration of two historic buildings on either side of the lot, according to the Pullman Artspace winter update on the project. “There are two unoccupied, historic apartment structures that bookend the project site. Each will be renovated to feature six new apartment homes. A newly constructed building will fill the vacant land in between the two existing structures. This building will house 26 apartment units, as well as an art gallery and community space,” said Alyssa Kelley, project manager in property development at Artspace. The new apartments will cater to the needs of artists and creative individuals in the Pullman community. The units are intended to be living and working spaces where people can comfortably create art. When the project is finished all are welcome to apply to live in the building but priority will be given to people

involved in artistic or creative pursuits, according to Kelley. “The project is designed to encourage and accommodate artistic endeavors through both the design of the physical structures and the emphasis on community. The apartment units, which are approximately 150 square feet larger than comparable units and feature open, flexible floor plans, are designed to be live-work spaces for residents. They also feature durable materials, high ceilings, large windows, and open layouts,” said Kelley. Pullman is a historical community and it has been important to everyone involved that the Pullman Artspace Lofts honor that history. “Extensive efforts have been taken since the earliest days of the project’s development to ensure that both the rehabilitation of the existing buildings and the newly constructed building respect the unique and historic nature of the built environment in the Pullman neighborhood and the neighborhood’s status as a National Monument,” said Kelley. The project has received Part II approval from U.S. Department of the Interior and National Park Service. It has also received approval from City of Chicago’s Department of Planning & Development, the City of Chicago’s Committee on Zoning, Landmarks, and Building Standards, and the Commission on Chicago’s Landmarks, according to the Pullman Artspace winter update on the project.

Election 2018:

Another Stop on the Chisholm Trail? By Kelly Dittmar and Glynda Carr Fifty years ago, Shirley Chisholm campaigned successfully to become the first Black woman in the U.S. Congress. Four years later, she became the first woman of color and the first African American to win delegate votes at a major party presidential convention. Throughout her presidential campaign, she attracted voters to the “Chisholm Trail” with her motto and reputation of being “unbought and unbossed.” But Chisholm’s trailblazing didn’t end with her presidential defeat. She served in Congress for another decade and left a legacy with lasting effects to this day. The 2018 elections will mark another stop on the Chisholm Trail, where Black women are poised to build on Chisholm’s legacy of leadership, determination, and desire to disrupt the status quo. Amidst reports of the “surge” of women running in 2018 are Black women candidates at every level, including some with the potential to make history. Perhaps most notably, 2018 could see the election of the first Black woman governor in the United States. The potential to harness and expand Black women’s political power is not limited to candidates this year. Black women voted at the highest rates of any race and gender group in both the 2008 and 2012 presidential elections, and again in the 2017 special U.S. Senate election in Alabama. If that race is any guide, Black women voters appear mobilized to turn out in high numbers again in 2018. But before we can measure progress Shirley Chisholm for Black women in election 2018, we need to take stock of Black women’s current political power. That’s why the Center for American Women and Politics (CAWP) and the Higher Heights Leadership Fund teamed up again to release “The Chisholm Effect: Black Women in American Politics 2018.” The report outlines the status of Black women in American politics today. Despite being 7.3% of the U.S. population, Black women are less than 5% of officeholders elected to statewide executive offices, Congress, and state legislatures. Black women are 5 of the mayors in the nation’s top 100 most populous cities. Since Chisholm served as the sole Black woman in Congress, 38 Black women have served in Congress from 16 states, including 2 Black women senators. Over the same half-century, 12 Black women have been elected to statewide executive office. These numbers are small when considered within the a 50-year context, but the pace of advancement in recent years marks momentum to build upon. Ten of the 12 Black women who have served in statewide elected executive office have held office in the past two decades. In 1990, just one Black woman served in Congress; 18 years later, that number is up to 19. In just the last 5 years, 8 Black women have been elected mayor in the 100 most populous cities in the U.S. And just this year, Sheila Oliver became the first Democratic Black woman lieutenant governor nationwide. This momentum will only continue - and increase - with work. Black women are doing the work every day to engage their communities in the political process, to make their own voices heard, and to take their seats at the tables of governance. Organizations like Higher Heights are working to amplify those voices and hold political leaders accountable for inclusion. And, with Higher Heights, CAWP is continuing to conduct research and programs that both identify and tackle barriers to Black women’s political progress. But the work doesn’t stop with us. Recognizing the imperative of Black women’s political inclusion is a responsibility we all share. When Chisholm was campaigning amidst war, social unrest, and crises of leadership, she argued, “At present, our country needs women’s idealism and determination, perhaps more in politics than anywhere else.” Those words ring especially true today, as our country confronts significant challenges at home and abroad. In this moment, the opportunities for meeting this demand while increasing Black women’s political power, especially in elected office, are great. And we’ve got some guidance on how to do it in 2018: follow the Chisholm Trail. Kelly Dittmar is an Assistant Professor of Political Science and CAWP Scholar, and Glynda Carr is co-founder of Higher Heights for America.

Malcolm X College recently received LEED Gold Certification from the U. S. Green Building Council. Some of its sustainable features include LED lighting, a rainwater irrigation system, and a green roof (pictured) where students can meet for class.

Malcolm X College Received LEED Gold Certification By: Katherine Newman

Malcolm X College recently received LEED Gold Certification from the U. S. Green Building Council for its successful efforts to make the new building, opened in Jan. of 2016, a sustainable addition to the community. Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is a certification program that provides independent verification of a building’s green features. The program encourages the design, construction, operation, and maintenance of resource-efficient, high-performing, healthy, costeffective buildings. LEED is the most widely used green building rating system in the world, according to the U.S. Green Building Council. “We are always looking for ways to impact the community in a positive way. We are a community college, that’s what we do. There was a desire to ensure that we were building a building that was not only functional, but was a beacon for the community that incorporates the best practices and sustaining energy is one of those best practices,” said David Sanders, Malcolm X College interim president. Buildings applying for LEED certification are evaluated and receive points based on nine basic areas of sustainability. The nine areas include integrative process, location and transportation, sustainable sites, water efficiency, energy and atmosphere, materials and resources, indoor environmental quality, innovation regional priority, according to the U.S. Green Building Council. With so many areas of sustainability to choose from, the college wanted to make sure that what they implemented was not only financially feasible, but also provided functionality, according to Sanders. A major feature of the new building is a green roof that covers 25 percent of the building. The green

roof is a functional area that serves as an academic space and is home to several indigenous species of plants from the region, according to Sanders. “We have had many courses that have held a class on the green roof. There is an area that is set for planting items that would be utilized in our biology and chemistry classes like aloe vera, acai, and things like. It gives students the opportunity to work with real plants and biological systems within their courses,” said Sanders. It was important during the design of this building to make sure that there was a balance between functionality and energy efficiency, according to Sanders. “One of the biggest things we did was incorporate a rainwater harvesting system which is one of the first ones in the state and was actually certified by the state of Illinois. We are using rainwater in our irrigation systems which is an absolutely wonderful and sustainable feature of the building,” said Sanders. There is also a one hundred percent on-site stormwater system at the college, according to Sanders. “We basically have built some underground canals that carry water around the building to prevent flooding and to get it into the sewer system in a slower way. It allows the water to trickle down into the system rather than hit the system immediately which would potentially over flood the system and cause flooding within the building,” said Sanders. The building also features LED lighting with lighting control systems that automatically turn the lights off when no one is in the room and reflective roofing that reduces solar heat which increases overall energy efficiency, according to Sanders. All of these features led to Malcolm X College receiving Gold, the second highest LEED certification.

My Brother’s Keeper Alliance Announces Upcoming Competition Chicago, IL – My Brother’s Keeper Alliance, an initiative of the Obama Foundation, recently announced it will issue a formal Request for Proposals (RFP) to community-based organizations located in the nearly 250 communities that accepted President Obama’s 2014 My Brother’s Keeper Community Challenge. The RFP highlights MBK Alliance’s commitment to investing in communities and organizations making steady progress that also have the potential to be proof points for what it takes to substantially improve life outcomes for boys and young men of color, particularly as it relates to reducing youth violence and growing the pipeline of mentors working in impactful programs. The RFP will be released in March. The MBK Community Challenge Competition, a pilot program, will help grow the impact of community-based solutions with measurable evidence of improving life outcomes for boys and young men of color, while building the capacity of communities dedicated to expanding opportunity. The competition will provide communities with a team of experts Barack Obama and practitioners to support planning, implementation, infrastructure development and spotlighting progress and lessons learned. Competition winners will also be able to access matching funds to hire a full time local project lead and receive planning grants of up to $500,000 to help jump-start initiatives, build capacity and attract additional resources and partners. Advancing the mission of My Brother’s Keeper in Chicago will be a permanent priority well beyond this Competition. Accordingly, a Chicago nonprofit will be selected to be part of the inaugural Community Competition cohort, while other Chicago nonprofits will have the chance to compete for mini-grants of up to $50,000. The MBK Alliance team is also working closely with city and community leaders to strengthen the overarching work of MBK in the city, including creating goals and aligning partners in supporting outcomes for boys and young men of color. Combining the resources for organizations, staffing, technical assistance and in-kind support, MBK Alliance will be invest nearly $4 million nationwide, including more than $1 million in Chicago.

the types of solutions the Foundation hopes to see. Rather, the Foundation will spotlight what’s working, build capacity for action and attract local and national tools and resources that can fuel long-term success. “Four years ago President Obama launched the My Brother’s Keeper initiative and, since then hundreds of communities have stepped up and shown up for their boys and young men of color in extraordinary ways. We are excited to let these communities know the Obama Foundation remains committed to their success, and provide some tools and resources to help them accelerate the pace of impact and inspire action nationwide,” said Michael D. Smith, Director of MBK Alliance and Youth Opportunity Programs at the Obama Foundation. MBK Alliance expects to invest in a diverse array of communities, including cities of all sizes, rural communities and Tribal Nations. Going forward, MBK Alliance will work to accelerate impact in targeted communities, mobilize citizens and resources, and promote what works — all with the goal of encouraging mentorship, reducing youth violence, and improving life outcomes for boys and young men of color. MBK Alliance will also roll out a series of tools and offer convening opportunities to encourage continued momentum in the broader network of MBK Communities. MBK Alliance will release eligibility requirements and a technical assistance schedule in the coming weeks and will begin accepting applications in March. Interested individuals and organizations are encouraged to sign-up at https://www.obama.org/MBKA/ to receive updates. MBK Communities Background Through the My Brother’s Keeper Community Challenge, launched by President Obama in 2014, nearly 250 communities in all 50 states, Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia accepted the call to action to adopt innovative approaches, strengthen supports, and build ladders of opportunity for boys and young men of color and other underserved youth. The Challenge called for local public and private leaders to convene their communities and youth to develop a local action plan, which would include concrete goals, a protocol for tracking data, benchmarks for tracking progress, and available resources to support communities’ efforts. 

Since launching, communities have formed local task forces, hired staff and made strides on complex challenges, including mentor deficits, school discipline reform, literacy and youth/law enforcement relationships. Some states, including New York and Michigan, have formed statewide MBK Community Challenge alliances, providing financial and in-kindresources.

What The Power Of The Supreme Court Means To You

(NAPSI)—From health care to civil rights, from abortion to marriage, the Supreme Court and its nine appointed members affect every major area of American life. Now, an insightful new book by best-selling author and Senior U.S. District Judge Ted Stewart explains just why that happened. The book shows the evolution of the Court’s vastly expanded interpretation of law and illustrates the power of judicial review to make sweeping, often unforeseen changes in American society, decades Safter decisions are handed down. Told through seven pivotal cases, it weaves the historical narrative into the legal basis for each decision and examines the farreaching effects. Stewart explores such intriguing issues as the Court’s role in sanctioning racism, why a nation founded by devout men and women banned religion from the public arena, and why justices can raise taxes, manage school districts and generally work their will. Each chapter presents an easy-toread brief on the case and explains what the decisions mean and how the Court ruling, often a 5-4 split, had longterm impact. For example, in Lochner v. New York, a widely accepted turn-of-

the-20th-century New York State law read it.” limited excessive overtime for bakery With such issues as voting rights, workers. That law was overturned by free speech, religious freedom, immithe Court based on the due process gration, taxes and search-and-seizure clause of the Constitution. The very same precedents, Stewart points out, were used by the Court 70 years later and expanded to a new right to privacy in Roe v. Wade, making abortion legal in the nation. A thoughtprovoking and easily ac c es si bl e r e a d , “Supreme Power: 7 Pivotal Supreme C o u r t Decisions That Had a Major Impact on America” (Shadow Mountain) also examines how the Court became so supreme and unexpectedly influential in American society and considers whether this was the intent of our Founding Fathers. In an endorsement of the book, Jason Chaffetz said, “As a former congressman and Chairman of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee, I saw again and again how the balance of power has been tilted much too far toward the judicial. This important book addresses the imbalance with powerful examples that are easily understood and very informative. Everyone should

(BPT) - Recent research is giving the 86 percent of Americans who sit all day at their jobs new reasons to reach for a handful of nuts while at work, and in particular, pistachios. Adding to an increasing volume of research around the health benefits of pistachios, one study and a national survey in the U.S. suggest a snack of pistachios might boost brain power and concentration levels at work. Pistachios helped office workers stay focused until lunchtime In a national survey, 1,000 American office workers who skipped breakfast consumed a snack of 42 grams (1 and 1/2 serving size) of pistachios between 9 and 11 a.m. Ninety-two percent of the participants said they are “distracted from their tasks at work due to hunger before lunch.” Eighty percent said they usually get hungry in the mornings before lunch and think about food often or every day. The midmorning snack of pistachios proved to be just what they needed to power through the morning. Ninety-two percent of the participants reported the pistachio snack helped improve their concentration at work as stated in the study, “somewhat or greatly.” That’s not surprising, according to Dr. Mike Roussell, nutrition expert and adviser. “Skipping breakfast is never a good idea, but even with a good breakfast and lunch, hunger pangs and stressdriven hunger can be distracting, leading to unhealthy snacking habits.” Roussell says pistachios are an ideal midmorning or midafternoon snack because of their unique nutrient package that not only promotes feelings of fullness and satiation, but also, newer studies show, can promote an optimal mental state and more focus at work. Increasingly, people with desk jobs are looking for a healthier snack alternative to the usual donuts and vending machine fare. Ninety percent of the survey’s participants said they believe the snack of pistachios is healthier than their usual snack. The study involved office workers in the Northeast, South, Midwest and Western U.S. who snack at their desk two or more times a week at midmorning.

entertainment LUCKY PLUSH BRINGS SIGNATURE DANCE, THEATER, HUMOR TO THE HARRIS WITH TAB SHOW

CHICAGO - Lucky Plush Productions returns to Chicago’s Harris Theater in Millennium Park Thursday and Friday, April 26 and 27, with Tab Show, featuring two works - Rink Life and Curb Candy - that highlight the company’s signature blend of layered choreography, witty dialogue, and socially relevant storytelling. Tab Show takes its name from an early 20th century short - or “tabloid” - version of a musical comedy, usually performed alongside other sampler-style entertainment as part of a traveling road show. Tab Show opens with Rink Life, a dance theater work loosely inspired by classic roller rink culture, where people seamlessly move between anonymity and community, individual stylings and group dynamics, movement and song. The sound design is entirely generated by the performers and builds upon disparate fragments of information - partially overheard conversations, musical scales, and pop-song earworms. Rink Life builds upon Cadence, a work that Lucky Plush artistic director Julia Rhoads created for Hubbard Street Dance Chicago in 2017 with music collaborator Bethany Clearfield (Grant Park Chorus,

Chicago Symphony Chorus, and the band Outertown). The second act features Curb Candy, which includes re-mixed excerpts from Lucky Plush repertory presented in an entirely new work. Look for favorite moments from the Lucky Plush dance theater canon including Surrelium, Endplay and Punk Yankees, performed by Lucky Plush ensemble members Kara Brody, Michel Rodriguez Cintra, Elizabeth Luse, Rodolfo Sánchez Sarracino, Aaron R. White and Meghann Wilkinson. Guest performers Enid Smith, Jacinda Ratcliffe, and Ethan Kirschbaum join the company for this special performance. Tab Show begins at 7:30 p.m. both nights. Tickets are $25-$70. The Harris Theater for Music and Dance is located at 205 E. Randolph St. in Chicago’s Millennium Park. Purchase tickets online at HarrisTheaterChicago.org, or call the Harris Theater Box Office, (312) 334-7777.

FULL CASTING ANNOUNCED FOR A TASTE OF THINGS TO COME CHICAGO PREMIERE! CHICAGO – Broadway In Chicago and the producers of A TASTE OF THINGS TO COME recently announced the full casting for A TASTE OF THINGS TO COME, a slice-of-life original musical comedy that makes its Chicago debut at Broadway In Chicago’s Broadway Playhouse at Water Tower Place (175 E. Chestnut) for a limited six-week engagement March 20 through April 29, 2018. THE 1950s: It’s the beginning of rock n’ roll, the racial barrier begins to crack, the Korean War is over, and husbands are returning home. Ronald Reagan is a model for Lifebuoy Soap and Rock Hudson is “the World’s Most Eligible Bachelor.” And women are getting antsy. Meet Joan, Connie, Dottie, and Agnes. Four best friends living in Winnetka, IL. They meet

every Wednesday for a Betty Crocker cooking contest, imagining how the prizes might change their lives. Their weekly gathering isn’t just about cooking, but a time to confide secrets and share frustrations. Usually, it’s LIFE Magazine that’s read cover to cover in between mixing, sifting, and chopping. However, a different kind of reading material arrives. Shocked but inspired by the Kinsey report, their lives take an interesting turn. A TASTE OF THINGS TO COME is a fabulously fun romp tracing the changing lives of these four Winnetka women from the 1950s to the sexual revolution of the 1960s. This homage to prior generations of women who blazed new trails features a rollicking original score of ‘50s and ‘60s music with great harmonies, all backed

CITIZEN / South End / Week of March 7, 2018 / 9

Founded in 1776, America’s Historic First Baptist Church “Freedom Bell” Rings to Heal Racial Divide WILLIAMSBURG, Va. - The Freedom Bell at the First Baptist Church of Williamsburg, one of the oldest African-American Baptist churches in the United States, rang for the first time since the days of Jim Crow and segregation in February 2016. In 2016, President Obama rang the bell to celebrate the historic grand opening of the National Museum of African American History and Culture. On Sunday, February 25th the bell rang again to call attention to, and to heal America’s racial divide after a tumultuous year marked by violence, strife and protest in Charlottesville, VA, scuffles at the University of Virginia, and rallies across the nation. The First Baptist Church of Williamsburg, lit the way by calling on churches around the country to bring awareness to what unites us, and appeal for racial harmony during the 11’0clock church service - traditionally the most segregated hour of the week in American households. “Our bell and our church are reminders of our progress towards the pursuit of justice and equality for all,” said Rev. Reginald F. Davis, pastor of the First Baptist Church. “Martin Luther King called for racial harmony from the pulpit of this church. It’s important that we continue his legacy and call on all Americans to heal racial disharmony and strive for justice and equality, the constitutional ideals that are the hallmark of our democracy.” On February 25th, the last Sunday of Black History Month, the church spearheaded a yearlong initiative to ignite inclusion and racial harmony during the 11 o’clock hour. Led by Pastor Davis, the day’s celebratory service invited Americans of colors, faiths, and creed - young and old - to join

in celebration. Speaker and guest Pastor, Rev. Travis Simone of the Williamsburg Community Chapel highlighted the day’s ceremony with a special sermon and the lauded College of William & Mary Choir performed. The church, recently designated as a National US Historic site, commemorated the day with the launch of the Let Freedom Ring Foundation. The Foundation’s mission is to protect and preserve the historic building and treasured historic artifacts dating from 1776, and to maintain the recently restored 1886 “Let Freedom Ring” bell. The Potomac Valley Section of the National Council of Negro Women (NCNW), founded by educator, activist and civil rights leader Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune, has pledged the first contribution of $10, 000 toward the work to conserve the church and its deep rooted history. “As the first elected President of the Potomac Valley Section and lifetime member of the NCNW, we are proud to support the First Baptist Church of Williamsburg in preserving our American history,” said Connie M. Harshaw. “Our commitment to improve the lives of AfricanAmerican women, children and families has reached across all racial, economic and social lines. It seemed, at first to be an insurmountable task, but when successful, it has helped communities all across the nation to close the divide and to heal. In the spirit of Dr. Dorothy Height and Mary McLeod Bethune, we don’t always do what we want to do, but we will do what we have to do in order to get it done – it is the only way.” Founded in secret by a group of enslaved men and women in 1776, the First Baptist Church in Williamsburg, Virginia, celebrated

its 240th anniversary in 2016. It is today one of the country’s oldest African-American houses of Baptist worship, and a symbol of the faith, struggle, and perseverance that marks the black experience in America. The First Baptist Church — whose first members met under thatched arbors in the woods — moved to a brick church building before the Civil War and acquired a bell in the late 19th century. Due to disrepair, the 500 pound bell remained inoperable through the days of segregation and Jim Crow…unheard throughout the tumult and progress of the civil rights movement until 2016 when The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation restored the bell to working condition in time to challenge Americans to “Let Freedom Ring” by ringing the church bell throughout the day – every day – during Black History Month 2016. Over 4,000 Americans rang the famed Bell in Williamsburg, with more than 7 million ringing virtually online. The First Baptist Church, now a designated National Historic Landmark, and believed to be the first church in the United States organized entirely by African Americans, for African Americans, is a special reminder of the history of African Americans. Its renowned “Freedom Bell” continues to draw visitors to ring the bell for peace, justice, harmony and equality throughout the year. A small number of black Baptist churches can legitimately claim to be the oldest in America — First African Baptist in Savannah, Ga., for example, and Silver Bluff Baptist Church in Jackson, S.C. However, First Baptist Church in Williamsburg is believed to be the first black Baptist church that was organized entirely by African Americans.
