 IC receives first, only grant U of its kind in the nation

No matter what you think about the level of assistance that Barack Obama has or has not provided Black people in his eight years as president, his choice of Eric Holder to be Attorney General is the gift that keeps on giving to the Black community, even though Holder is no longer in office. In addition to hammering big banks for minority lending practices, being a champion for parity in sentencing guidelines, targeting the Aryan Brotherhood’s criminal enterprises, and putting substantial funds behind efforts to help former inmates rejoin their communities as law-abiding citizens, Holder also caused the Justice Department to look at some of its underserved constituencies. To that end, through its Office of Victims of Crimes Services (OVC), the National Institute of Justice (NIJ), and the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, the Justice Dept. has put a lot of grant money recently into studies looking at how violence affects the young Black male population. They want to see how the government may be able to help these unfortunate individuals cope and also institute measures that will decrease the number of potential new victims among their group. A number of recent Justice Dept. reports, such as the “Attorney General’s National Task Force on Children Exposed to Violence,” and “Vision 21: Transforming Victim Services,” reflect an understanding of the long-term effects of trauma and violence on victims – especially those who are both underserved and experience higher rates of victimization, such as boys and young men of color. Recommendations from both reports seek to enhance the Dept.’s ability to recognize and improve victim services, especially for men and boys of color – read, Black – who fall victim to violence. The Justice Department has put forth grant money to solicit a number of research studies in the past year, including the OVC’s Supporting Male Survivors of Violence Demonstration Initiative. This project seeks to improve the responses to male survivors of violence, particularly boys and young men of color and their families, and to dedicate technical assistance to support these efforts.

Pioneering Research At UIC

Another Justice Dept. grant just won by University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) also aims to help young Black survivors of violence. Under the three-year, $1.5 million grant from the Justice Department’s National Institute of Justice, UIC researchers will study the experiences of black, male, violence victims, ages 18 to 24. Participants will be queried about the physical, emotional and financial injuries they suffered as a result of violence and the sources of support they use(d) for coping. The study’s results will be used to guide the Justice Department’s OVC on how to respond to violence victims in other specialized groups and to inform Congress on the support services and funding needed to assist crime victims in their recovery. The study is being conducted by principal investigator Henrika McCoy, assistant professor

Justice Dept. Studying Impact Of Violence On Young Black Men in UIC’s Jane Addams College of Social Work, and her co-investigator Tim Johnson, director of the Survey Research Laboratory in the UIC College of Urban Planning and Public Affairs. The grant solicitation was put out last April; McCoy and UIC submitted their proposal in June and were notified on September 29 that they received it. They are the only entity that received the grant and the only one doing this particular kind of research in the country. The study officially began January 1 and continues through December 31, 2018. Specifically, McCoy and Johnson are charged with developing and pilot-testing in the first year of the grant a survey of young Black male victims of violence in Chicago, Cook County, and suburban and rural locations across Illinois. In the second and third years of the study, the team will apply the refined survey they developed across the country in approximately 10 cities with high concentrations of African Americans, such as Atlanta, Los Angeles and Philadelphia, to about 750 Black young men ages 18 to 24 who have had violence afflicted on them. About how the grant came about, Professor McCoy says, “A lot of this was really pushed initially by Eric Holder. The OVC figured out that they don’t know a lot about young Black men and their experiences with victimization. So they and the NIJ decided to try to get some answers. “The whole point of the grant is to understand the victimization experiences of young men of color – we’re talking about young Black

men 18-24 – understand the kind of access to services they have, whether they use them, what kinds of support they do use. “Then, ultimately, the goal is trying to leverage this information to get funding from Congress to be able to provide appropriate services” to this population. To help facilitate the research, McCoy says the Justice Department left it up to the researchers to determine what they were looking for in terms of people to study and where to find them. “We decided that we’re interested in looking at violence victimization in a few areas,” she said. “Not only physical assault, but sexual assault, gang violence, police brutality, community violence, group violence, serving in war in the military, hate crimes, and violence suffered in jails and prisons.” To find the victims of violence to study, McCoy reasoned – and the Justice Dept. agreed, she says – that they have to “recruit people where they are.” McCoy was born on the West Side and raised there until she was nine, when she moved to the South Side, where she now lives in Roseland in the same house her mother and grandmother lived in. As a result, she says of recruiting the study participants, “I can leave my house and know where to find people who may have been affected by violence – from tattoo parlors to Harold’s Chicken, the barbershop, the laundromat, Boost Mobile, rap concerts, everywhere. “You also have young Black men that are going to Malcolm X Community College, you also have young Black men who are working jobs. We want the gamut; we want this to be a representative group of young Black men who have been victimized. “We want real answers, so we have to find real people, and if we find some who have been victims of violence, we’re going to tell them what the study is about and try to recruit them to talk to us about it in the study.” To be considered “victimized,” McCoy says so there would need to have been some sort of physical contact with injuries that resulted. Not verbal, but physical force – sexual, beaten, attacked. “And it can’t be that your momma spanked you. You have to have suffered some sort of violence that probably traumatized you, but nobody cares about,” McCoy said. She cautions that social workers will be present at the screening process and the interviews to help participants cope with revealing their stories should those needs arise.

Toyota demonstrated its commitment to reaching minority consumers by winning 10 out of the 20 top honors during the Diversity Volume Leadership (DVL) Awards in Detroit, a few days before the North American International Auto Show opened to the public.

“What we proved, and will continue to prove, is that diversity and a focus on ethnic consumers and women is not a play of ‘Oh, that’s nice,’ or a pat on the back. It’s about growing your bottom-line business. These are the new trendsetters; these are the new volume breakers.”

Award winners were determined based on new vehicle registration data collected from October 2014 through September 2015 by IHS Automotive, a research group that provides insight into the global auto industry.

“Minorities are changing the course of events in the automotive industry,” said Watson. “Diversity is not only playing a central role now, but will continue to do so for years to come.”

Perry Watson, the chairman of NAMAD, said that each trophy represents millions of dollars in sales and market share.

While acknowledging the impact that minority consumers have on the auto industry, Watson lamented the lack of diversity among owners at the dealership level. Watson said that of the 18,000 new car dealerships in the United States, only about 1,100 are owned by ethnic minorities.

The National Association of Minority Automobile Dealers (NAMAD), a non-profit group that advocates for diversity in the auto industry and IHS Automotive presented the awards. “We wanted to recognize, celebrate and educate the fastest growing group of new vehicle consumers in the automotive industry, which happens to be the diverse consumers – African Americans, Asian Americans, Hispanics, Native Americans and women,” said Marc Bland, the vice president of diversity and inclusion for IHS Automotive. Toyota won DVL awards for sales in the New England region (RAV4), the Plains region (RAV4) and the Southeast region (Corolla) as well. The Japanese automaker also collected awards for Top Ethnic Vehicle for African Americans and Asian Americans for the Camry and the Top Ethnic Vehicle in the Hispanic market for the Corolla.

Toyota Wins Big At Diversity Volume Leadership Awards Alva Adams-Mason, Director of African American Business Strategy and Corporate Communications for Toyota North America, said that even though Toyota has worked hard for decades to establish relationships in minority communities, the team was still surprised by how much those communities have supported the automaker.

Bland said that while the general consumer market grew five percent, the ethnic consumer market grew 11 percent. That means that the record number of cars sold last year would have been even higher if the general consumer market Damon Lester, the president of had grown at the same rate as the NAMAD, said that the automakers ethnic consumer market. “We’re dealing with facts; that that won awards pursued and continue to pursue diversity as a busi- means that everybody has the opness imperative at all levels. “The portunity to get there,” said Bland. winners are paying close attention “If you sell the most, you get an to the ethnic marketplace,” said award. Lester. General Motors and Honda each won four DVL awards. Mercedes-Benz won an award for the Top Luxury Vehicle for African Americans (C-class). The Ford Motor Company didn’t win a single award.

The DVL awards ceremony was the first of many initiatives to empower and inform ethnic minority consumers about “who’s helping and who’s not,” Watson said. “The battle is far from over, but progress does exist,” said Watson. “It’s not fair that we take our money and we patronize and we make these companies powerful and we don’t share in (the prosperity) at the dealerships or in advertising.” Lester agreed, adding that automakers can increase their multicultural diversity by establishing relationships with minority-owned advertising agencies and media companies. “Right now, a lot of manufacturers are going to this general market approach, one-size fits all, but if they want to capture the diverse marketplace and gain market share, they’re going to have to encompass all levels,” said Lester. “Minorities are going to have to appear in more commercials and more print ads. More than what we see currently.” www.chicagodefender.com

The suppression of education from Blacks was a means to force their dependence upon the Whites and keep them ignorant and incapable of performing certain jobs and assimilating into society. This is why historically Blacks held education high as a means to freedom. Knowledge and skills remain significant as a way to independence, however the important missing link is ownership of land and property that is controlled, governed and policed by those that own it.

Intelligent Blacks who were educated and skilled more than not had to take jobs beneath their skill set and ability in order to provide for their families. Doctors, lawyers, teachers, scientists, nurses and so on were not allowed to practice amongst Whites or work alongside them in their firms, hospitals or elsewhere.

“If we don’t accept responsibility for ourselves and change, the systemic racism will continue as usual.” Robert Sengstacke Abbott was a lawyer, but no White law firm would hire him. He ended up founding and publishing the Chicago Defender and eventually instigating the Great Migration through his advocating of Blacks to flee the oppressive South. Even the entertainers who were permitted to perform for Whites could not eat where they performed or board at the hotels for Whites only. If you recall Strange Fruit, sung by Billie Holiday and often referred to as her signature song, it is a haunting protest against the inhumanity of racism. The song was actually written by a Jewish activist named Abel Meeropol, but mirrored Billie’s experiences as she traveled through the South with an all-White band. continued on page 14

Boston Medical Also Receives $1 Million Grant From DOJ to Support Male Survivors of Violence While UIC is undertaking its groundbreaking study, the Boston Medical Center’s Violence Intervention Advocacy Program (VIAP) has also been awarded a $997,966 grant from the Office of Victims of Crime, administered by the Dept. of Justice, to develop and support programs at the Center designed specifically for male survivors of violence. VIAP is a hospital-based violence intervention program serving more than 450 clients each year, almost 70 percent of whom are Black males with an average age range of 16-29. VIAP serves clients that are accidental or intentional victims of shootings and stabbings who are treated at Boston Medical Center (BMC), that region’s largest safety-net hospital. VIAP and its community-based collaborators provide medical, behavioral health, and support services to male survivors of violence, their family members, and significant others for two years or more. Directed by Dr. Thea James, vice president of mission and associate chief medical officer, VIAP is a national model for other hospitals across the country. “In 2015, BMC treated 275 male victims of violence, ranging in age from just five to 63,” James says. “Our goal is to guide and empower these young men and their families, help them avoid violent situations and lifestyles, and provide them with the support, tools and resources to secure employment and safe housing, in addition to providing necessary medical and behavioral care. “Many of these young men have grown up in neighborhoods without resources and opportunities for thriving and success,” she continued. “Many have grown up witnessing gangs and violence, without exposure to lifestyles that nurture www.chicagodefender.com

their talents and strengths that lead to a positive trajectory. We are here to help them realize that they have options.” The grant will be used to support a demonstration project that, through its partnerships with community-based programs, will allow VIAP to identify gaps and barriers to care and support, and develop an action plan to meet the needs of male survivors, their families and significant others. Gaps already identified include lack of resources to help male victims find employment and housing; and a lack of trauma-informed care, which is commonly used in behavioral health settings, but is not often found in community-based settings. Trauma-informed care is a treatment model that involves understanding, recognizing, and responding to the effects of all types of trauma. VIAP, co-founded by James in 2006, is a co-founder of the National Network of Hospital Based Violence Intervention Programs, which has grown to more than 28 programs nationwide and internationally. “No one grows up dreaming of a life surrounded by violence, but very often, the patients we see in our emergency department and in VIAP don’t believe they have, or deserve, a choice,” James says. “This grant will help us to provide better services and support to the hundreds of men we see in our emergency department and in the community who are shooting or stabbing victims, so that we can better help them escape lives of violence and teach them how to provide for their families by helping them to get well, and by providing social support and services such as job training and placement services, housing assistance and so much more.” – Andre Carter

Instead of using the NIJ’s official study award name, McCoy has renamed the project SURVIVE – Suburban, Urban, Rural Violence: Investigating Victim Experiences. Still in the very early stages of gearing up, SURVIVE is looking not only for recruits to volunteer their stories, but is hiring Black men to interview those violence victims. In the first year of the study to create the survey instrument, approximately 90 recruits in the Chicago/Illinois area are needed to be interviewed. They will be paid $50 for their participation. An as-of-now unknown number of interviewers are being hired at $20-something an hour, says McCoy. “We are only hiring black men for this project,” she stresses. “We are hiring Black men to do the interviews, to do the recruiting, to do everything. Hiring Black men to talk to Black men. That was important to me.” The Black men doing the interviewing ideally need to be between 25 to 40 years old. “We may take older, but ideally, if you’re 18, you think 40 is old,” McCoy explains. “If you’re over 40, you may still think you can relate to an 18 year old, but the 18 year old won’t see it that way.” The recruits who tell their stories and the interviewers will participate in individual interviews as well as focus groups that will help determine how to create and refine the survey instrument to be used on the road in the next two years. The focus groups will ask a cross-section of people what kinds of questions should be asked of the violence victims, due to the sensitive nature of the information, and how they should be asked. “The recruits will have a pretty good idea through the screening process that there will be pretty severe questions asked,” McCoy explains. “We’re going to ask, have you been sexually assaulted. That’s not something that anybody wants to talk about, certainly not young men, and certainly not young Black men. But that’s going to be one of the screening questions.” McCoy feels confident that her background as a social worker and her partner’s background in survey research should help them “get at some of these issues.” McCoy went to the old Luther South High School. She has a bachelor’s from Washington University in St. Louis, a master’s in social work from the University of Pennsylvania, a master of jurisprudence from Loyola here in Chicago, and she went back to Washington University to get her PhD in 2008. Her mom was a CPS teacher for 38 years and her father worked for Amtrak. “My background is that I’ve researched young Black men; I’ve worked with young Black men,” McCoy says. “My research primarily focuses on mental health and juvenile justice, typically looking at how mental health issues get kids involved in the justice system when

they are 12-17 year olds. Those are the kids that people write off, but that’s the age where they still have a chance. I look at the work with this grant for 18-24-year-olds as being a bridge.” McCoy notes that in the past year, the Justice Dept. has maybe provided about $40 million in funding for various projects like hers. “This solicitation is just one of a number of things the JD put out and this is the one we chose to respond to. My hope is that this is the beginning of something. “I believe their hope is that all those things together will be able to help create change and that this is one component that has been ignored that is necessary.” She added that the Justice Dept. hasn’t necessarily been “as dedicated

to this issue as they are now with this survey; they’ve done some stuff, but not in this way. I think they believe that they need research to help inform practice. “So the Justice Dept. wants money from the government to be able to introduce some kinds of services for this population, but they’re saying right now: A. we don’t know what to get; so B. therefore, we can’t get money to do it.

with conservative Republicans who closely identify with local Republicans.

The war of words over the lack of a state budget resumed in Springfield last week and Illinois, which has been operating without a budget since June of 2015, is rapidly facing a moment of truth.

They supply money, volunteers, and mail, all essential components to successful campaigns, and they take their retirement benefits seriously. In fact, the state’s largest employee union, AFSCME, has over 37,000 active members and approximately 100,000 retirees.

Republican Governor Bruce Rauner has asked the Illinois Labor Relations Board to declare an impasse in the state’s negotiations with AFSCME. If that happens, Illinois residents will finally really begin to feel the true impact of a government shutdown.

While active members fail to recognize that the benefits packages of the past will most likely go from defined benefits to defined contribution, any discussion of changing retirees’ plans is met with fierce resistance.

State operations have been running because of a series of court judgments and consent decrees, but if Rauner gets his way, and a budget impasse is declared, Illinoisan will begin to feel the real impacts of what decades of indecision and mismanagement have brought to the state. The situation is coming to a head, but in spite of what the headlines and articles read, Illinois’ crisis did not begin with the election of Rauner. The roots of this crisis can be traced back to another Republican governor, Jim Edgar, with the assistance of Illinois’ most powerful Democrat, Speaker of the House Mike Madigan. In 1994, then-Gov. Edgar introduced a bipartisan bill that he claimed would fix Illinois’ $15 billion pension crisis. According to state law, Illinois pensions must be funded, and with a balloon payment looming and Illinois short on the cash, Edgar conspired with Madigan to extend the terms on the debt to 2045, essentially leaving future governors to deal with the mess.

State Financial Woes Catching Up With The Past ments (during his term) and gradually increasing them over time. Edgar left office in 1999, a wildly popular and respected governor, and has since gone on to become one of Illinois’ senior statesmen. In reality however, he left the future Illinois a financial mess that residents are paying for to this day. Disgraced Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich did not help the situation when he and Speaker Madigan passed what was infamously dubbed the “pension holiday.”

“Chicago Public Schools are on the brink of bankruptcy, and the impending literal shutdown of state government is looming.”

That “holiday” allowed the Illinois General Assembly to skip a $2 billion pension payment and reinvest those dollars into capital projects, many that accrued senior rides on CTA, Kidstart, and Blagojevich favor with the Black a variety of road and building projects were funded, but union pencommunity.

Retirees complain that they did their part by allowing their retirement payments to be taken out of every check, and now it’s the state’s time to pay up. It’s a hard sell for the Governor and the Illinois constituents who will have to make up the difference.

As Illinoisans continue to see their taxes rise while services the pensions not funded, but also continue to get cut, the public the interest accrued and in some employee union retirees stand cases compounded.

Many question how seven percent of the state’s working population could be dragging down the other 93 percent. For some the answer is simple. They say, “We live in a different world; just cut the pensions and move on.” But in Illinois politics, it’s not that simple. Unions are the lifeblood of Illinois politics, and while they are often closely associated with Democrats, many downstate public employee unions are filled

There are reports that Gov. Rauner and Illinois Senate President John Cullerton are attempting to forge ahead with a solution, while Illinois House Speaker Mike Madigan refuses to participate in reforming a mess that all agree he helped create. One cannot deny Gov. Rauner’s role in the situation Illinois is facing today, but the truth is the state’s mess was not created during Rauner’s one year in office, and will take until long after he is gone to correct. www.chicagodefender.com

According to Jessica Maxey-Faulkner, “The district’s south region manager met with members of GCPAC to demonstrate through its electronic registration system how all donated grant funds had been used, as well as the balance available for additional use.”

Defender Staff Writer

Located in the Greater Grand Crossing neighborhood at 7655 South Ingleside sits 17 acres of greenery known as Grand Crossing Park.

CeCe Edwards explained that “South Region Manager, Daphne Johnson contacted Ronald Wright, Grand Crossing park supervisor, and made him fax over the receipt(s) for a $1,000 GCPAC second donation.

Designed by the famous Olmsted Brothers in the early 20th century, it boasts two full gymnasiums, a woodshop and fitness center indoors. There are basketball, baseball, football, and tennis courts and more outdoors. Initially settled by the Irish, Scottish and English, the area went from 99.4 percent White in the 1930s to 86 percent Black in the ‘60s. Despite the decline that happened throughout the 1990s and 2000’s, the area is starting to show signs of urban renewal thanks to local community groups like the Grand Crossing Park Advisory Council (GCPAC), which single-handedly restored its playground.

“Some 37 receipts were missing from the first donated Allstate grant since 2014. Miss Johnson promised to research the missing receipts and give them to GCPAC.”

Is Grand Crossing Park

Crossing Out The Community?

Established in 2005, GCPAC’s President CeCe Edwards stated in an interview with the Chicago Defender, “From 2006 through 2010, we raised $250,000 with the help of Friends of the Park to rebuild a playground for the children in the community.”

It took 100 volunteers two days to transform the once neglected play area into a modern playground. “It was the most rewarding experience of my life,” says Edwards.

Dawn Allen, who lives two blocks from the park and has worked for the Black Star Project, in the past, tutoring youth, said “The management at Grand Crossing, unfortunately, is not kid friendly. Some of the staff members are not interested in providing a quality experience and open door policy to the young people, especially teens, in our community. They are not interested in providing programs that will bring this demographic into the park.” On January 5, 2016, three teenagers, two male and one female, were shot, two fatally, on the park’s corner at 76th and Dorchester. Two of the teens were known to come to the park and had been turned away in the past, according to sources.

Door knocking led to many donations from community residents and thanks to generous donations from Children’s Memorial Hospital and Kohls, GCPAC and its board members were able to turn around a much-neglected park. In June 2010, in a partnership with John Simonitis, construction manager for Parks-Recreation, Edwards stated, “They showed us how to rebuild the playground with our own hands under their Community Built Playgrounds program. Normally it costs $600,000 to build a playground, so we saved the park district $400,000 by building the playground ourselves.”

Miss Johnson was transferred days later after the meeting and the 37 receipts have not been delivered as promised to GCPAC. “We are still waiting,” says Ms. Edwards.

However it appears that some in the park’s management haven’t been supportive of the community’s renewed interest and revitalization of the park, especially as it relates to the children using the park for weekend recreation and after school activities.

efforts, they held fundraising events and had Allstate donate money to cover the cost of activities for low-income families with children. According to Edwards, how it is supposed to work is that when a child or teenager shows up to participate, the donated monies are to be used to cover the cost, thereby eliminating the possibility of anyone being turned away because they can’t afford to pay.

Chester Hillard, a 49 yearslong resident and board member of GCPAC, shared his concerns. “When I was a kid growing up it was free to use the park. Nowadays it’s Despite this arrangement by all about the money.

DuSable Museum Names New Curator From The Defender News Wires

The DuSable Museum of African American History has a new chief curator – Leslie Guy, an arts consultant and curator of collections and exhibits for museums and private collectors in Philadelphia.

“DuSable has a really rich collection, and I’m looking forward to bringing those collections out of the storage areas and into the public view,” Guy said, adding that she intends to have an active collection schedule. “There are some wonderful pieces; I was amazed. Everywhere I looked, there was something marvelous,” says Guy, who has had to hit the ground running as the museum gears up for its latest exhibit The DuSable Masterworks Collection - Series 1: Paintings, opening February 9. The museum is also undergoing aesthetic improvements to its main lobby. And in February, during Black History Month, DuSable will introduce an interactive, audio/visual exhibit in the story corps tradition to capture the oral histories of Black families. “Museums should be interactive; a place where the public can participate and truly engage,” says Guy, who became the first African-American woman in the U.S. to earn a master’s in science degree in art conservation in 1995. “I was troubled by the lack of African-American representation in collections and the lack of resources dedicated to the preservation of African American artifacts,” she explains. Guy earned her Master’s from the University of Delaware.

When I asked my recent cooking class to share stories about recipes meaningful to them, a young boy of about twelve mentioned the passed-down family explanation surrounding the special bread his grandmother made in her Ethiopian kitchen when his mother was a young girl. “She told all her children she planned to bake this bread for a celebration meal when their father returned from war, but he didn’t live to come back,” the boy said. Then the young boy, who had never met his grandfather, made the point better than I have ever made about the importance of some recipes to family memories. “He didn’t come back, but my grandmother taught my mom how to bake the bread, and now we always speak about of my grandfather when she bakes the bread here in Chicago.”

Memory Banana Bread 1 1/2 cups flour 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder 3/4 teaspoon baking powder 1/2 teaspoon salt 3 ripe bananas 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted 1/2 cup white sugar 1/4 cup each: brown sugar, milk 1 egg, beaten 1 1/2 teaspoons almond extract 1/2 to 3/4 cup finely chopped raw or unsalted roasted cashew nuts

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl; set aside. Press bananas through a ricer into a large bowl or mash peeled bananas well with a fork; stir in melted butter, white and brown sugar, milk, beaten egg and almond extract. Slowly stir this into the flour mixture, stirring just to combine. Stir in the nuts.

tester comes out clean, about 35 to 40 minutes. (Begin testing at 30 minutes.) Transfer to a wire rack to cool 10 minutes before removing from pans to cool completely. Makes four loaves.
