PAT STEVENSON

GOOD NEWS YOU CAN USE!

Our prayer go out to all those who loss their lives and were injured to what seemed a senseless shooting in Las Vegas and for all affected by the recent hurricanes and earthquake in Mexico, Puerto Rico and other Islands, as well as in Texas, Florida, Georgia and South Carolina. A reminder that any of our lives can change or be lost any hour and any day. Be mindful of how you live your life, how you treat your fellow man and thank God for the precious time we have. Lil Nickelson and I had the opportunity to visit Disney on a press FAM trip a couple of weeks ago. We had the opportunity to experience the annual Epcot International Food Festival, as well as visit other eateries at Disney. Lil recaps this for you on page 4. Again, thank you to all who supported me through my cancer treatment with your prayers, cards and contributions. I am now “cancer-free” and back to work full time - God is Good.

development of cultural sustainability was on display with the arts panel after this year’s annual meeting. The moderator was Yasmin Cornelius, VP Community Affairs, L & M Development Partners. The panelist consisted of four dynamic women of color that head cultural institutions in Harlem: Patricia Cruz - Executive Director of Harlem Stage; Thelma Golden – Director & Chief Curator of The Studio Museum of Harlem; Jonelle Procope – President & CEO of the Apollo Theater; Sade Lythcott – Executive Director of National Black Theater. From a historical perspective these four cultural organizations in Harlem had the foresight to purchase their property back in the 1960s when blacks with means were moving to the

outer boroughs and no one was looking at Harlem as a sustainable economic community. Each of the panel members briefly summarized their respective organizations journey from the 1960s to the present time and what they plan to do to progress further in this century. These cultural organizations desire to serve the residents within the community as well as draw others from outside into our community. In 2008 125th Street was re-zoned to include a cultural arts bonus or incentive to real estate developers that was designed to support the growth of 125th Street as a premier arts, culture and entertainment destination. The intent is to support the creation of uses that would complement existing and future arts and cultural venues to expand the range of activities along 125th Street. The re-zoning law also included regulations to promote distinctive signage that would reinforce the street’s arts, culture and entertainment character. How do business and the arts come together? The first cultural organization in Harlem to test the rezoning law has begun. The National Black Theater has teamed up with L & M Development Partners to redevelop its home 20312033 5th Avenue (from 125th to 126th Street) into a mixeduse building with 240 residential units and space for a new 30,000-square foot theater. It will require the property to be rezoned for more density, namely tripling the building square footage, by applying for a bonus that provides four additional square feet for every square foot of theater or arts space.

n Tuesday, September 19th, 2017 the 125th Street District Management Association, Inc. commonly referred to as the “125th St. BID (which stands for Business Improvement District)” held their 24th annual meeting at the Apollo Theater. The “125th St. BID’s mission can be summarized in three statements: 1. Expand sustainable economic activity in the area including the creation or expansion of businesses and the development of jobs for community residents. 2. Maximize the ability of residents, businesses and institutions to benefit from all opportunities created by commercial revitalization efforts. 3. Improve the quality of life in the community. Barbara Askins serves as President and CEO of the 125th Street Business Improvement District in Harlem which she successfully created in 1993.

Home Buying In Harlem Be Prepared to Buy Now

FOXWORTHREALTYONLINE.COM

by Rev. Charles Butler

he major challenge for many prospective firsttime low to moderate income buyers is clear. They do not have enough money saved for the down payment and closing costs. Most of these individuals are struggling to meet their current monthly living expenses. The high cost of living in New York City is making it almost impossible to save any money for buying a home. When you combine this problem with the rising values of homes in the area, it becomes almost an impossible task for low to moderate income buyers to achieve their dream of homeownership. The annual income for most first-time buyers have failed to significantly keep up with inflation. In order to buy a home to-

day, you must create a plan of action that will help you to combat this income deficit. It is difficult to aggressively save any money when the majority of your money coming into the household goes out to pay monthly expenses. A new strategy must be put in place. To address this problem, Harlem Congregations for Community Improvement, Inc. (HCCI), has started a Small Business Institute. Our 3rd cohort of this program will start with an information session on Monday, October 9 and the program will begin Monday October16 from 6-8:30pm. The workshop will be held at 203 West 146th Street. This program is designed to assist low income individuals

in becoming self-sufficient through business ownership opportunities. To see the future, you must have a vision. Starting a business can be that first step to creating additional income. It will take a great deal of hard work. You will have to make some sacrifices, but the rewards are well worth the effort. Start considering any special skills, aptitudes, interests, or ideas you have that could translate into a business venture. Step out on faith. Don’t be afraid to take a chance. If you are interested in attending the workshop or have questions regarding the home buying process contact Rev. Dr. Charles Butler at (212) 281 4887 ext. 231 or email at cbutler@hcci.org.

NEW YORK URBAN LEAGUE 3RD ANNUAL BLACK & WHITE CHAMPAGNE SALUTES THE HONORABLE DAVID N. DINKINS AND CELEBRATES AWARDEE CAMILLE JOSEPH

T

he Third Annual Black and White Champagne Brunch was held Saturday, September 16, 2017 at La Marina, located in Washington Heights, New York. The Black & White Champagne Brunch celebrates the organization’s work in education, employment, and advocacy and celebrates individuals whose work embodies the ideals of the Urban League. The Champagne Brunch Co-chairs were NYUL Board Chair, Jeanine Conley and John Daves, NYUL Board Member, Bill Thompson and Elsie McCabe Thompson and Camille Joseph Goldman and Jason Goldman. The David N. Dinkins Award for Service, Leadership and Social Justice was presented to Camille Joseph, Vice President of State Government Affairs with Charter Communications, for her commitment to public service. Over 150 young professionals and the young at heart attended the event that was sponsored by Malecon Productions, Dell/EMC, Charter, AARP and the Campaign for

Black Male Achievement. Deputy Manhattan Borough President Aldrin Bonilla welcomed guests to sunny Washington Heights. He then inspired the audience by asking who was ”going hard” for issues and causes particularly relevant to black people. NYUL President and CEO Arva Rice followed up by asking attendees to be inspired by this moment in history to not just retweet but volunteer, join and give. Former City Comptroller Bill Thompson shared that for the past two years the New York Urban League has given an award for a leader who has a commitment to social justice, vision for change and compassion for New Yorkers. NYUL could not think of a person who better embodies this spirt than Mayor David N. Dinkins. The David N. Dinkins Award for Service, Leadership and Social Justice will be presented to a community leader every September. But it was the graduates of NYUL’s Summer Science, Tech-

trapped for time? By stocking the pantry well and setting aside some weekend prep time, you can create a whole week of great lunches in just an hour. One bowl wonders are perfect for toting to work or school or enjoying at home. Simply choose a grain, a hearty root vegetable, some good-for-you greens, a simple sauce and flavorful toppings, like olives. This Sweet Potato Tahini Bowl recipe conveniently yields 4-5 servings, perfect for an entire week. Ingredients: • 1 1/2 cups quinoa, rinsed • 2 2/3 cups vegetable broth • 1/2 cup Pearls Sliced 18

Kalamata Olives or Whole Kalamata Olives, sliced Sweet Potato Ingredients: • 1 large sweet potato, peeled and chopped into 1/2 inch cubes • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil • 1/2 teaspoon salt • 1/4 teaspoon pepper Chickpea Ingredients: • 1 15-ounce can chick-

peas, drained and rinsed • 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt • 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper Kale Ingredients: • 5 cups roughly chopped kale

• 2 large cloves garlic, minced • 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil • 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper Tahini Dressing Ingredients: • 1/4 cup tahini • 2 tablespoons lemon juice • water as needed • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil Directions: • Bring quinoa and vegetable broth to boil in small heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer, covered, until broth is absorbed, 15-20 minutes. Remove from heat and let rest for 5 minutes. Fluff with fork. • Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Toss sweet potato in olive oil,

salt, and pepper and spread in even layer on a parchment-lined baking sheet. • Toss chickpeas in olive oil and spices, and spread in even layer on a second parchment-lined baking sheet. • Place baking sheets in oven side-by-side, if possible (if not, rotate pans top to bottom, front to back halfway through). Roast chickpeas for 15 minutes. Continue roasting sweet potato for 15 minutes longer, until soft and starting to turn golden brown on edges. Remove from heat and set aside. • While sweet potatoes and chickpeas bake, heat 2 teaspoons olive oil over medium heat in large skillet. Add kale, garlic, salt, and pepper and cook, stirring, until kale begins to

wilt, about 5-8 minutes. • Mix all the tahini dressing ingredients together in food processor or with whisk. If dressing is too thick, add water until it can be drizzled. • Assemble the bowls. Divide quinoa evenly. Top with chickpeas, sweet potato, kale, and slice Kalamata olives. Drizzle with tahini dressing and serve. Try making your own combinations with whole grain rice or wheat berries, spinach or any dark greens and winter squash. For a finishing kick of bold flavor, add your favorite olives, such as Pearls Garlic or Jalapeno Stuffed Queen Olives or Mixed Greek Medley. Get unstuck from your lunch rut with single bowl meals, which are versatile, healthful and convenient.

NBLCA’S Health Action

T

he National Black Leadership Commission on AIDS, Inc. (NBLCA) has long advocated for a strong relationship between medical and faith-based communities to educate and empower the black community in its continued fight against HIV/AIDS. As we celebrate our 30th anniversary, we see the urgency and inclusivity of our work mirrored across the country in organizations that have also seen the need to foster relationships between all those involved in the fight. While great gains have been made in the fight against HIV/AIDS in the Black community, there is still work to

be done. African Americans face a myriad of social injustices such as poverty, lack of education, healthcare and high unemployment rates that have all contributed to the HIV/AIDS epidemic. African Americans continue to lead in new HIV/AIDS diagnosis amongst all ages, sexual orientation, and gender. The HIV/AIDS epidemic in the Black community calls for a comprehensive, intersectional approach. NBLCA continues to be committed to the cause of ending the epidemic and have created a network of medical, faith and government coalitions dedicated to crafting new, innova-

tive policy proposals that address the disproportionate burden experienced by the black community. In 2007, NBLCA hosted the historic National Conclave on HIV Policy for Black Clergy. This conference was the first-time black leaders from every spectrum of the fight against HIV gathered to discuss how best to end the epidemic. The conclave drafted legislation, entitled the National Black Clergy for the Elimination of HIV/AIDS Act, which called upon the President and Congress to declare HIV/AIDS in African-American communities a public health emergency, and organized clergy to ad-

Division of

vocate and implement initiatives for the specific needs of physicians, their patients, and those at risk in black communities. Although the Act was not passed by Congress, NBLCA continues to uphold the suggestions and initiatives it outlined. NBLCA continues to spearhead the fight against HIV/AIDs in the black community through programs like The Community of Color Counseling, Testing, and Referral, which created partnerships across the spectrum of faith-based organizations. These unique partnerships, which are built upon the life-affirming foundational values of faith organi-

zations are a testament to the community’s commitment and determination to care for those in need. Similar programs are being implemented in faith-based communities across the country. With the support of NBLCA President and CEO C. Virginia Fields and others, the NAACP created a program entitled “The Black Church and HIV: The Social Justice Imperative”. This program provides networks of faith leaders with informational guides and training on how to integrate HIV materials into messaging in order to best prepare faith-leaders to fight HIV in their communities. On the 31 of October 2017, NBLCA will host its 30th Anniversary Gala at Gotham Hall to commemorate NBLCA’s 30-

year contribution to the fight against HIV/AIDS in the Black community. The event will be hosted by Cheryl Wills of News 1 and David Ushery of WNBC News 4. For more information visit nblca.org or (212) 6140023 ext. 104.

hope you are finding this series helpful to addressing imbalances on the mental, emotional and spiritual levels. With regular meditation and focus on your chakras, you can begin to help restore balance to your Chakras. In Part 2 of this Series on the Heart Chakra, we mentioned the yoga posture called the Camel. One of the most notable benefits of Camel Pose, and other backbends, is anxi-ety and stress relief. The pose opens your chest and exposes a part of the body we ac-tively protect, usually by hunching our shoulders forward and rounding through the up-per spine. The Cam-

el physically forces you into a vulnerable position, which can be challenging and simultaneously beneficial. Emotionally, it can create a sense of vulner-ability we usually shy away from. Our minds often follow our bodies, so by increasing the flexibility in your spine and relieving the tension in your neck, back, and shoulders, you increase the flexibility in your mind. Open your body, open your mind. Once you create this open position in the heart chakra, emotions begin to flush the body. If you’re going through a particularly difficult stage of life, or have just lost a loved one, this pose can be ex-

tremely painful – but will definitely relieve, and help resolve, the build-up. Be gentle with yourself — physically, mentally and emotionally. . . .

SPICE IT UP!

all is here! And with it comes all the bountiful flavors of Mother Nature has gifted us with to enjoy. Last Sunday on my way to church, I could feel the cool air whipping through the warm sun as I wrapped my scarf a little tighter around my neck, and stepped into my favorite deli for some hot lemon and ginger spiced tea. Once inside, for whatever reason, I chose instead a new tea from their menu. As I sipped, I detected the distinct flavor of licorice also known as “sweet root”.

Licorice is also known for its medicinal properties and has been found to aid in various respiratory disorders, including clearing the body of undesirable mucus and stimulation of the adrenal gland which promotes healthy levels of cortisol in the body. Cortisol is produced by the body’s adrenal glands to manage stress and calm the mind and body. The spice of Life Spices like ginger, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, turmeric, fennel, cloves, garlic - whether they are used with stews, soups, hot drinks, cereals, desserts, meats or condiments, can make or break a dish. As I drank my delicious cup of

licorice spiced tea I began to think about the benefits of spices. First, a little clarification: a spice is any part of a plant (except for the leaves – these are your herbs!) such as the bark, root and seeds that one can use to “wake up” food flavor as well as provide medicinal advantages.

herbs (such as thyme and rosemary) should be stored away from heat, sunlight and too much air to keep them fresh longer. Add the salt last! Try adding all other spices first before adding salt. You will be surprised at how flavorful your food will taste even with very little to no salt. Ever try eggs with garlic powder, red pepper flakes, cumin and a sprinkle of cinnamon? Give it a whip you’ll be surprised by the flavor. Be a detective: Always check the ingredient label for hidden spices (these are harmful preservatives disguised as harmless). For instance, MSG (monosodium glutamate) has been associated with at least 50 or more other terms on labels such as “spices”, “natural
