Black men workin’ it out for the children MPS reacts

to community violence in schools and streets

Eighth annual African American Male Teach-In provides positve male role models for Dr. Martin Luther King Elementary School students “Black Men United!” was the theme of this year’s African American Male Teach-In, held last week for the eighth straight year at Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Elementary School, 3275 N. 3rd Street. Sponsored by the school’s Governance Council, the teach-in allowed students to rub elbows with and talk to over 50 Black professional men of varying occupations from law enforcement and judicial system, education, media, culinary arts, business, contractors, construction, community outreach and government to name a few. “The African-American Male Teach-In is an opportunity for men from the community to come into Dr. King School, network, see and meet the students, but also to share themselves with the students,” said Dannette Justus, a third grade teacher at MLK Elementary School who helped organize the event. “Our hope is that a connection will be established between students and men! This is our 18th year doing it and some wonderful partnerships have been formed between Dr. King School and our community.” Two of the men who participated in the teach-in were awarded the African American Male Image Award. Andre Sherard and Carl Sloan were honored for their weekly work with MLK’s 3rd and 4th grade students for the past two years. They also escorted the 8th graders for the 8th

grade Civil Rights Tour this past May. The men marched through the halls of the school accopanied by an African drummer so they could meet the students who couldn’t attend the assembly, where a traditional libation ceremony, introduction of the men to the students and the presentation of the African American Male Image Award was made. After the program, the men were escorted to their assigned classroom, where they talked to the students using one of the Kwanzaa principles, as well as about themselves and their occupation.

Aldermanic candidate Ray Harmon challenges opponent to a debate

Ray Harmon, a candidate for the Milwaukee Common Council in District 9, has challenged incumbent Ald. Robert Puente to a political forum which would be held before the April 3 election. “I feel a political forum can help the voters in District 9 adequately decide the type of future they would like to see for the district,” Harmon said in his letter to Puente. “I believe it is appropriate and fair for the citizens of District 9 that we adequately display to them the opRay Harmon tions they have for leadership in their district,” said Harmon in a statement. “I hope the current alderman will respond to my request for a debate, and I look forward to publicly discussing the changes that need to occur in District 9.” Harmon said in his letter to Puente that the constituents of the Ninth District on the Northwest side of the city has resided too long in economic and civic obscurity. “I believe there are questions the citizens of District Nine would

COMMUNITY “Did you have any problems voting due to Photos and question by Yvonne Kemp

MONTE MABRA: “No, I had no problems because I learned the importance of having identification at age 18.”

By Patti Wenzel--Courtesy of ThirdCoast Digest Milwaukee Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Gregory Thornton wrote a letter to the community (which is reprinted on the Perspectives Page of the Community Journal this week) titled “The community’s silence is deafening,” asking where the outrage is over the deaths of four MPS students in the last two months. He took the entire Milwaukee area to task on the apathy toward the violent deaths of teens, especially teens of color. Thornton wrote. “I am outraged because the community is not outraged,” Thornton wrote. ”Has everyone simply accepted that this is life in Milwaukee now? No other community in this state would stand so quietly in the face of our grim statistic: four children dead in seven weeks. If four boys had died of the same illness, we would cry out for the vaccine.” The community listens to how violence is being reduced in Milwaukee Public Schools. His letter struck a nerve. MPS School Board President Michael Bonds called a special school board meeting to call the community to action in regards to the violence in our schools and streets. On Tuesday night, people packed the auditorium of the school district headquarters. Local elected officials attended or sent representatives to speak. Students, teachers and community activists spoke at the meeting. A choir of young men from Milwaukee High School of the Arts sang “The Prayer of the Children” by Kurt Bestor. Its words too struck a nerve; “Can

QUESTION OF THE WEEK: the new Wisconsin Voter ID law?”

RHONDA MCLIN: “No, I didn’t have any problems because I always have identification.”

YVONNE MCCASKILL: “The ward numbers changed. In order to find which ward I was in, I needed to show my ID at each table before they would look up my name.”

TRISTAN GROSS: “I didn’t have any issues casting my ballot. However, there were some concerns about the process because the ballot box malfunctioned.”

Services set for Reginald D. Trotman

Funeral services will be held Thursday, March 1, at St. Mark AME Church for Reginald Dutle Trotman , who passed from labor to reward Wednesday, February 22. He was 90 years old. He is the father of Dr. Enid Anyanwu one of the Milwaukee Community Journal’s honorees in 2008 for its year-long focus, “Our Women: Our Treasures, Our Jewels,” in which she was recognized for her service to the community as a physician and role model Reginald D. Trotman for young Black girls. Trotman was born on July 1, 1921 in Colon, Panama. He was the eldest son of Reginald Trotman and Rosetta Hall-Trotman He accepted Christ at a very young age and attended St. John Catholic Church in Panama. In the early 1950’s, Reginald moved to Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He joined Oak Creek Assembly of God, Oak Creek, Wisconsin. In 1958, Reginald met and married the love of his life, Cherrye Ballard. Their union was blessed with two daughters, Enid and Eunice. Their lives were further blessed by the addition of their devoted niece, Edwina Beanum whom they raised as if she was their own. Reginald received his formal education in the Panama Public Schools Sys(continued on page 7)

Successful “Hidden Colors” marathon inspires viewers locally and nationally By Taki S. Raton Upwards of 300 Milwaukeeans locally and a grand total of 327 people nationally participated and was thoroughly inspired by the city-wide marathon viewing of the acclaimed documentary “Hidden Colors: The Untold Story of People of Aboriginal, Moor and African Descent.” On Wednesday, February 15, 2012, Milwaukee was host to a city-wide viewing of “Hidden” in four locations around the city simultaneously beginning at 7 p.m. Viewing locations included the African American Women’s Center at 3020 West Vliet Street; Coffee Makes U Black, 2303 North Teutonia Avenue; Milwaukee Brotherhood of Firefighters, 7717 West Good Hope Avenue, and the Wisconsin Black Historical Society at 2620 West Center Street. The Milwaukee Black Male Achievement Forum (MBMAF) expanded on this idea to additionally propose a “National ‘Hidden Colors’ Viewing Marathon” sponsored by individuals and respective Black Male achievement networks across the country also on this same date and time (CST). The four Milwaukee venues together numbered 293 viewers; 5 viewers joined this marathon initiative at the home of Carlos Car Sr. in Omaha, Nebraska, a total of 22 from the Chicago area – 13 at the Afrikan Village and Cultural Center of Chicago at the invitation of Bro. Hassan Ra-Heru Akety, and 9 in the residence of educator Belinda Cummings. Seven people joined the Detroit viewing ranks in the living room of Karen Williamson. “The Milwaukee Brotherhood of Firefighters was honored to be one of four venues to host the city wide viewing of this ground breaking Afrikan history documentary ‘Hidden Colors,” says Bro. Oshi Adelabu, lead organizer of this marathon viewing initiative. “The importance of ‘Hidden Colors’ is that it gives the viewer a lot of information about Afrikan people that we did not know. It is unfortunate that many of our people believe that we never created anything of any substance. This documentary explodes such myths. It is a "MUST SEE” for our people," he adds. Since its release April 26, 2011 in select theaters across North America, “Hidden Colors” has been acclaimed throughout the country for its exactness of historical detail and the factual restoration of the African and African American image and contribution in the world arena. The film is a documentary about the “hidden” history of people of color around the globe and throughout time. This DVD discusses some of the reasons that the contributions of African and aboriginal people have been left out of the pages of history. Film footage features scholars, historians, and social commentators uncovering such facts about the original imagery of Christ; the true story of the Moors’ the original people of Asia, the African peopling of world populations; the presence of the African in America before Columbus; the real reason slavery was ended and the true competitive racial issues behind the need to hold the Negro back after 1865’s Emancipation Proclamation. “Simply brilliant. Every parent should show this film to their children,” says Carr. “Why has this information been suppressed,” he asked? Carr

submits that “Hidden” is an “outstanding film on African and African American history,” and that it was very well researched and masterfully presented. Bro. Amon Ra attended the Coffee Makes U Black showing of “Hidden”. He shares that, “To see the numbers in Milwaukee and in other cities coming out to view this film demonstrates that our people are thirsting for knowledge; knowledge that for years has been in the grips of the European who not only colonized us physically, but mentally as well.” Ra adds that the film “is the conversation of the day and we find that an increasing number of Black people are requesting copies.” “We here in Detroit were so honored to be a part of this multiple viewing of “Hidden Colors,” says Williamson who read about the February 15 initiative in the Chicago based Black Start Project newsletter from a news release prepared and submitted by MBMAF. “The information comfortably settled deeply into all of us in the room and we felt exhilarated with the unfolding knowledge of truth that was presented. It was liberating, culturally fulfilling, and exciting to know that our hearts and souls were then connected to and with others around the country,” she positions. On Wednesday, January 18, 2012, representatives from the four Milwaukee Black owned centers met at the Coffee Makes U Black restaurant to plan this area marathon showing of the DVD. “The idea for a marathon viewing unfolded spontaneously following Bro. Tony Courtney’s January 7 Black Man’s Forum panel at Coffee Makes U Black,” says Adelabu. “The energy and spirit in the room at the conclusion of the six member panel presentation was strong as Black men were talking amongst themselves and the topic of ‘Hidden Colors’ came up in one of the smaller group discussions. Given the popularity and historical importance of this documentary, the prospect was suddenly shared to present and even celebrate in Milwaukee the DVD at multiple venues on the same night at the same time,” he adds. The Saturday following the multiple Wednesday viewing on February 18, a 1 p.m. panel discussion will was held at the Wisconsin Black Historical Society. Attendees from all of the four sites were invited to attend the five-member panel to ask questions and review pertinent points in the film. “Bringing our people together in neighborhoods across the city and around the country to educate ourselves about our history is critical to the process of unity and self-determination,” says Marquette University student Joe Kellam who was also in attendance at the Coffee viewing. He notes that “Hidden Colors is “groundbreaking” in its work to restore the truth which has been deliberately hidden about the great contributions made to the world by our ancestors: “This DVD dispels many of the myths about our history and if we are going to build anything sufficient and sustainable for ourselves so that our children aren’t standing in front of others begging for handouts, then it is our responsibility to provide them with the correct and proper path away from disillusionment and from the dangers that awaits them in the streets.

MPS reacts to violence in schools and streets

(continued from page 1) you hear the voice of the children? Softly pleading for silence in a shattered world? Angry guns preach a gospel full of hate, Blood of the innocent on their hands.” Thornton asked the board and the community to become involved in ending the “senseless deaths.” “Citizens of Milwaukee and the MPS community, we cannot let complacency allow us to accept this dire situation,” he said. “We must act and we must act now. We cannot let another young person lose his or her life.”

Carver Academy teacher Tyson Kuhrmeier cried while explaining the loss MPS students are experiencing. However, much of the discussion did not focus directly on the issue Thornton raised in his letter — the collective shoulder shrug at the news of another young person’s life being cut short in the streets of Milwaukee. The discussion primarily focused on MPS’s efforts to stem violence and student suspensions within its halls. During the 2007-08 school year, MPS implemented Safe Schools/Healthy Students to prevent youth violence and substance abuse in the schools and community. In 2008-09, the district started Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports to reduce out-of-school suspensions. Certain campuses have been designated Violence Free Zones. District officials presented data showing the violence and suspension initiatives are working in the schools, with the percent of suspensions dropping from 26.6 percent in 2007-08 to 20.4 percent in the last school year. The Youth Risk Behavior Survey in 2011 shows 52 percent of students feel safe at school, 80 percent feel they have one or more adults other than parents in their lives that can help them, and 50 percent have at least one teacher at school they can talk to in the case of a problem. The survey also showed 43 percent of students feel violence is a problem at their school, 37 percent report harassment and bullying as a problem and 48 percent are aware of gang activity in their school. Students from James E. Groppi High School for at-risk youth praised the restorative justice programs, VFZ and counseling programs that are helping them make better decisions, mentor younger students and learn to resolve problems without guns, knives or fists. But their biggest thrill was the addition of a basketball team at the school this season. Many students described how the team has given both players and fans something to do on and off the streets. Community members stayed for the entire presentation on school violence. Teachers and elected officials advocated for smaller class sizes, more mental health access in the schools and promised to partner with the school district in its reforms addressing violence. One teacher, Tyson Kuhrmeier of Carver Academy, asked for more adults in the schools and an understanding from the public that $1 billion in cuts to education has had catastrophic effects. “Kids are not getting an education,” he said. “This has become a civil rights issue.” The most compelling offer of help came from one man, Arno Michaels, the director of “Life After Hate,” a community organization working to bring races together and to build character development, taught by either former perptrators or survivors. He offered his condolences to the families and friends of the four students. Michaels admission that he was a former skinhead was met with stunned silence, but was then followed by cheers and applause when he explained the major changes he made in his life when the people he claimed to hate showed compassion to him in a time of need. “Along the way I’ve learned alot and life is a learning process,” he said. “Character development is a positive way to address all the negative circumstances. These kids have the power to become the good people they want to be. I want to offer my services to MPS in anyway we can be of assistance.”

That same year, the Rev. A.L. Robbins was called and elected as Pastor of the Gospel Temple Baptist Church. Shortly thereafter, it was suggested by Deacon Ernest Brewer that the name Gospel Temple Baptist Church be dismissed and the name Jericho Missionary Baptist Church was adopted. On the second Monday in January, 1962, Jericho Missionary Baptist Church was destroyed by fire. With no permanent place of worship available, the members met in the home of Rev. and Mrs. A.L. Robbins. After a series of moves, July

ily moved to 1923 North 12th Street. The church remained at this address. This facility underwent a series of renovations to accommodate the growing needs of the congregation. In 1969, an expansion of the existing church structure to seat at least 300 parishioners was completed. In 1978, plans were made to expand the church once again. On December 21, 1980, the development was complete and the Jericho church family marched to their new home. On the second Sunday in October, 1993, after 32 years of service, Rev. A.L. Robbins resigned as

pastor. In December of that same year, Jericho Missionary Baptist Church voted and elected Rev. Anthony D. Burns, Bible school graduate and Associate Minister of the Pilgrim Rest Missionary Baptist Church, to become the new pastor as the church moved into the 21st century with the unified idea “Committed to Serving God.” Over the years, Jericho Missionary Baptist Church has become a longstanding part of Milwaukee’s community and is notably known as “The Church Without Walls.” The concept of "The Church Without Walls" was conceived while Rev. Anthony D. Burns was on a missionary journey in West Africa. From that journey and with that concept, Jericho has had a separate youth facility that was located on 12th & Galena and at one point maintained a second location on Dr. MLK Drive. Being a man of vision and sensitive to the move of God, Dr. Anthony D. Burns charged the congregation to ‘Reach, Build and Serve People with the Love of God’. Keeping with the vision to be a church without walls that would reach, build and serve others, it is only natural that Jericho would embark on countless outreach activities including services to the youth, elderly, families and shut-in members of the community. Jericho has also (continued on page 5)

I got about five miles from my house and realized that the road I needed to turn onto was about seven minutes in the opposite direction. Traffic was heavy and the travel times were noticeably slower than normal. At the time I was headed to teach a class and a U-turn would have made me late and being late when you are the teacher is not an option! Before panic could set in as I looked at where I was heading and the clock in the car, God reminded me that there was a way to get where I needed to go from where I was, even though it was not the path I intended to take when I left my house. As I drove on toward my destination on the adjusted route, God began to show me that too often we are too focused on making U-turns in life rather than trusting Him to take us from where we are to where we need to go. How often to we get stuck trying to change the past? We tend to focus our efforts on endlessly resolving the unrecoverable moments in our lives. Past hurts, past wrongs, past relationships, missed opportunities, and costly mistakes seem to plague

ANOINTED THOUGHTS by Rev. Roxanne Cardenas, M.Div

back to go forward and sometimes that could not be further from the truth. What got me back on the right path was getting focused enough to realize that I was heading the wrong way and that the wisdom to acknowledge that if I kept going that way I would not reach my destination. Being in a state of denial would not allow me to be successful. If I was too proud to admit I had made a mistake, my pride would not have allowed me to change directions. Pride and denial go hand in hand. Too much pride is usually at the root of an unwillingness to admit that we are headed the wrong way. As long as we remain distracted and in denial we will continue to waste the precious time we have on earth heading in a path that God did not intend for us to go. If you are not saved, know that God can take you right from where you are and get you to a better place – here on earth and in heaven. As long as you are willing to admit that your plan has you lost but by the gracious gift of His son Jesus you can be found – a redirected course can be yours today. You do not need to fix yourself, be “good enough,” or do enough good things to deserve His grace. God loves you “just ‘cause”! He will take you from where you are to where you need to be – and you will get there on time. This week, remember that God can take you right from where you are!

The beauty of the ‘mountaintop experience’ the hearts and minds of many people who need to simply come to the conclusion that the past can not be changed but the future is brimming with possibilities and opportunities! The temptation is to assume we have to go

M

arch 4, 2012 is the Second Sunday of Lent. The Gospel for this day is from Mark, chapter 9: 2-10. It is the story of the Transfiguration, the “mountain top experience” for Jesus and the three disciples.

As we journey to Calvary during the forty days of Lent, we always stop on the second Sunday of Lent and read about the “mountain top experience” of Jesus and his followers.

Since all of us live in a world still plagued by racism, segregation, poverty, lack of meaningful work, and sometimes, raw hunger, we need a “mountain top experience” just to keep going.

BREAD IN THE WILDERNESS

That is probably what Jesus needed too, since his arrest and cruel death were not far in the future. He needed to ascend to the top of the mountain and hear those comforting words from his Father, “This is my son, the beloved, in whom I am well pleased; listen to him.” With these words still ringing in his ears, he could go forward toward Jerusalem and death! Our own brother Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. also had an experience that empowered him to go to his death.

by Fr. Carl Diederichs, All Saints Catholic Church

Martin preached, “We’ve got some difficult days ahead. But it really doesn’t matter with me now. Because I’ve been to the mountain top.” We don’t know just what Martin saw, but we can believe that it was a visionary experience; it gave him peace, trust and the power to continue his journey for justice knowing that the forces of evil were coming at him, much like they were for Jesus. Martin, like Jesus continued his journey preaching peace, love, tolerance, and he ended up like Jesus,

dead, but without retaliation. From that death has come life. Those of us who have ourselves been to the mountaintop and have been given the grace of seeing beyond the sin and death that racism, segregation, poverty cause, we are led to a New Day, an Easter of peace, justice, love. We do believe that peace and justice will become real. We can dream that as Jesus died and Martin died violently, without ever repaying violence with violence, we too can be proactive messengers of peace and non-violence. During these wonderful gracefilled days of Lent, we can pray for peace and equality, good jobs and an end to racism, knowing that God has heard our plea and will answer like he answered Jesus on the mountaintop: “You are my beloved child in whom I am well pleased. Do not lose heart; I am with you all days.”

ev. Deborah and Rev. Clarence Thomas Jr. heeded the call to launch a Multicultural Ministry called the House of Grace Kingdom Ministry.

Bringing the sacrifice of praise...

Gloria Tillman-Kemp, minister of music for the Gospel Messengers of Carthage College, directs the group during the First Annual Dr. R.E. McCrory Memorial Gospel Concert held recently at St. Luke Emanuel Baptist Church, 2722 W. Highland Blvd. The Gospel Messengers were the featured performers during the concert, which is named after McCrory (deceased) who founded and pastored St. Luke Emanuel for 50 years. He was an active and outspoken clergyman who was well known and respected in the faith-based and secular communities for his integrity and commitment to Christ. (Photo by Yvonne Kemp)

The church contends that the Kingdom of God is a rich tapestry, with young and old, male and female, and representatives from every nation and people; therefore, our churches should reflect the Kingdom.

The name, House of Grace Kingdom Ministry reflects a place where persons can gain citizenship into an actual community where God’s love and mercy is given freely to all. The late Dr. Martin Luther King observed that the most segregated gatherings in America are during our Sunday worship services. His observation is still true today. While many mono-cultural churches are necessary, valuable, and pleasing to God, King's comment is, nevertheless, to some extent a general indictment against the Christian community as a whole - since Christ, the Bible, and good theology, if properly heeded, would move many churches toward becoming more multicultural. House of Grace offers a non-traditional approach to ministry for the twenty-first century seeker. The worship service affords the opportunity for an open forum testimony sharing; lay members participate in presenting the Word and the church maintains a village perspective of family pride and unity. Throughout the Bible there is support of the church’s mission to become One. Psalm 133:1-3 says, “How wonderful and pleasant it is when brothers live together in harmony. For harmony is as precious as the anointing oil that was poured over Aaron’s head, that ran down his beard and onto the border of his robe. Harmony is as refreshing as the dew from Mount Hermon that falls on the mountains of Zion. And there the Lord has pronounced his blessing even life everlasting.” House of Grace Kingdom Ministry currently worships at the Radisson Hotel, N88W14750 Main Street in Menomonee Falls, WI. The worship experience begins every Sunday at 10:00 a.m., offering a worship experience that is mindful of time and the need to balance one’s day following service.

served and supported the homeless and less fortunate. Through its partnerships with local schools, nursing homes, drug treatment facilities and homeless shelters, the congregation is grounded in the proverb, “People don’t care how much you know, until they know how much you care.” The church is firmly committed to communicating God’s love and promoting the uncompromising Word of God as a catalyst of hope for reaching the lost and hurting people in Milwaukee and all around the world through community festivals, local and national television broadcasts, mission trips, internet streaming, CD and DVD distribution and social media. In order to align itself and support the ministry’s vision, mission and purpose, in June, 2011, Jericho began the journey of renovating the property at 8086 North 76th Street which was a former car dealership. This would not prove to be just any renovation; God’s hand was all over it from the beginning. The economic downturn and other factors made it almost impossible to find bank financing, but this did not and could not stop the Man of God who was armed with God’s vision. Pastor Anthony D. Burns earnestly went before the congregation with a plan for the church to self-finance the project and with an overwhelming support of the congregation, the church is currently completing the renovations without financial backing from a financial institution. Job Corps, other churches, ministries and volunteers in Milwaukee and from other states showed their support of God’s work by sowing seeds of labor and finances. This journey is a testament to God’s unstoppable favor. March 29-April 1, 2012, members of the Jericho Church Without Walls, dignitaries, families and friends from all over the country will celebrate the opening of the new church facility with weekend long activities that include a ribbon cutting ceremony; a dignitary luncheon; praise & worship services with esteemed guest, Bishop I.V. Hilliard from New Light Christian Center Church, Houston, TX; a pastors’ reception; an open house, a praise concert and Sunday service with Apostle Lennell D. Caldwell and the First Baptist World Changers Church, Detroit, MI. Jericho’s new home shall be a place where the ministry will continue to expand God’s Kingdom by reaching the lost, changing lives and reaching, building and serving people with the love of God in the community, the city of Milwaukee and all around the world.

Successful “Hidden Colors” marathon inspires viewers ((continued from page 3) Knowledge of our history will greatly assist in this effort. This means that we must all re-educate ourselves if we are going to have any chance of creating the change necessary to save our people.” Aziza Courtney adds that “This documentary is beautiful. If makes one realize the greatness from whence we as Africans of the Diaspora have come and it even directs us to move out of a provincial mindset into a world scale when thinking about Black people.” Quoting scholar Amos N. Wilson in his work “The Falsification of Afrikan Consciousness,” Wake Up Program founder and director Alfounzo Watkins shares that “The people who can manipulate history can manipulate consciousness, and when they can manipulate consciousness, they can manipulate progress, and when they can manipulate the progress of a people, they have control over those people.”

He adds that, “This quote very powerfully reflects ‘Hidden Colors’ in that once those of us who have been resurrected by the true history of our ancestors, it will force or consciousness to do a paradigm shift within this society. T “his paradigm shift will change our false understanding of our relationship to white supremacy and with this new consciousness, we must create institutions that will continue, expand and cultivate this level of thought and awareness.” Individuals and groups in other cities such as Louisville, Louisiana, Philadelphia, Richton Park, Illinois, and in Cleveland, Ohio made contact and expressed a desire to participate in the marathon showing, but was either unable to locate the DVD or did not receive it in time for the February 15 viewing.

He graduated from Junior College in Montego Bay, Jamaica majoring in auto mechanics, was accepted to the Milwaukee School of Engineering, attended the General Motors School of Automotive Transmission and received a degree in Air Conditioning and Refrigeration from Milwaukee School of Engineering (MATC). Reginald leveraged his education with his entrepreneurial spirit which he discovered in Jamaica, but cultivated it in Panama where he opened his first business, a transportation company that was very successful. His entrepreneurial spirit defined and followed him to Milwaukee when in 1958 he opened two Phillips 66 gasoline stations on 1st and North Avenue and 16th and McKinley Boulevard. He later became a home fuel oil distributor and owned the Gold Coast Tap on 28th and North Avenue for many years. Reginald had an infectious smile that could melt your heart and he was loved by many. He loved to sing hymns. His favorite was “How Great thou Art.” His hymns provided great comfort to Reginald and all that visited him during his final months. When able, he would sing “I trust in God,” and was joined by his caregivers. Reginald was preceded in death by his father, Reginald Trotman; mother, Rosetta Hall-Trotman; brothers, Jasper

Richard the Lionhearted was a much-loved King of England. He was loved for more than one reason. He was strong and viral, a man’s man. He liked to hunt and he liked action on the battlefield. His troops love him because he was a King that led his men to the battle not falling behind and sending them out in front. Another reason that he was so loved by his subjects is half of his subjects, were women; he was handsome, single and a King – though, not particularly interested in them. Being such an available, royal catch caused women to throw themselves at him relentlessly. For that reason, he had little respect or appreciation for them. He was a man who loved the thrill of the hunt and a challenge. King Richard of England was not a member of any Christian group or any religion; and he was not beholding to the Pope of Rome. He despised the clerics and to highlighting a point. “Richard, by contrast, often went well beyond the oath – for the sake swearing, i.e.: ‘By St. George!’ to swear upon Jesus’ private parts and he took great joy in doing so because it insulted his clerics. He knew that they dared not respond – he was their king” (Warriors p. 107). Shortly after Richard I became King of England, he was called upon to join all the major European heads to lead the Third Crusade. His reason

Black Family Drought By G. Maajidah Abdullah

for being induced into the Crusades was his hate of defeat. The Crusaders needed a fearless leader to rally the troops. Frederick Barbarossa of Germany, another warring King had fallen and the Crusades were left without a strong head. Richard the Lionhearted joined King Phillip Augustus of France and the new King of Germany to regain Jerusalem from Sultan Salahuddin. The Sultan had under his controlled the land from Turkey through Syria to Egypt. Because Frederick Barbarossa is killed, the German army had disintegrated. This event left King Richard of England and Augustus of France to win back Jerusalem. The new King of Germany was of little aid in battle and had no military strategy and King Richard was relentless with his insults upon him because he did not respect him for that reason. King Phillip of France also, despised Richard because Richard snubbed Phillip Augustus’s half sister. He had agreed to marry her, and instead, marries a wealthy, farmer’s daughter who had no royal blood. By European standards, she was an enemy because she was a half Moor. The Moors had controlled the islands of Cecily and Tyre for centuries. This act of marriage further embeds hostility between European allies (Reston 1941) p.144). He had fallen in love and had no intention of releasing a catch that he worked so hard to secure. King

BLACK A MOOR

lack History Month being the shortest month results in the following article that is for Black History overlap into March. This is a bit of history that may not appear to be classified as Black History; but it is most specifically Black History and is archived. It is because of the Black Moors’ occupation of Europe, i.e.: Spain, Portugal, Germany, parts of England, Switzerland and all of Italy – except Rome – that precipitated the events, which are documented to have followed.

Richard was interested in her but she was not impressed with him even though he was king. He was crude, unkempt by Islamic standards with a foul mouth of speech and little regard for women. She would not sleep with him and slept only with his sword, Excalibur, because he sent his sword to their wedding as proxy for him. He was too busy out hunting with his vanguard. She married him at her father’s behest. This marriage was never acknowledged in Europe. The King’s mother personally braved a trip bringing him Princess Berebgaria to marry. He was then forced to marry a woman of noble lineage. Richard went through the formality of the ceremony; but there is question to whether or not he had ever conjugated their marriage relationship. They never had children and they never lived together (Regan). The Moorish wife of King Richard I was captured by Salahuddin’s army. She was dark because she was of Moorish and Italian ancestry. King Richard and the Crusaders lost the Battle horribly and most of the Crusaders left to return to Europe (Reston 1941 p. 301). King Richard refused to leave without retrieving his Moorish wife. Only a small number, his loyal vanguard, chose to stay with him. Sultan Salahuddin was impressed to see the king fight so gallantly on the field. Salahuddin issued an order that no soldier should kill him or he,

Salahuddin, would personally cut off his head. This order caused his troops to slay the horses so as not to accidentally kill the King in battle. When his horse was killed, the Sultan would send him another saying that it was only proper for a King to have a mount on the battlefield. Three times Sultan Salahuddin had to send him a horse until Salahuddin ordered King Richard captured because he was injured (Geoffrey Regan, Walker 1998, P. 210). After king Richard’s capture, he was taken to Haifa (where his wife was being held near Jerusalem (Restin 1941 p.205-206). King Richard and his wife were quest of the Sultan Saladin and the King is rumored to have had a child (Britannica). The Sultan admired the bravery of the European king. Likewise King Richard was taken by the Sultan’s wisdom, manners and hospitality toward him and his wife. Over a period of time, they became close friends. England was in a bad state of affairs. There were pleas for Richard to return to England. Richard’s mother sent word that his brother John was over taxing the people and attempting to usurp Richard’s thrown. During this time in England is why Robin Hood and the four Musketeers surfaced. One of the Musketeers was a Moor that was left behind. Sultan Saladin released King Richard so that he could go back to England. King

Richard would not leave for over 3 years. There are conflicting reports as to the exact number. In actuality, King Richard had abdicated his thrown and converted to Islam– he did not want go back to England. It was the Sultan that advised him of his responsibility to his calling. Sultan Saladin opens up Jerusalem to Christians, Jews and Muslims. In 1192 King Richard left Jerusalem but was shipwrecked on his journey back to England. While traveling through

Austria disguised, Richard was recognized and captured by the duke of Austria and imprisoned. The Austrian king turns Richard over to the King of Germany at the German King’s request. The king imprisons King Richard again and places a great ransom on Richard’s head. It was equivalent to more than three times the annual revenue of England. To Europe’s astonishment, it was paid by Salahuddin* in 1194 (Blondel 2009).
