“Hispanic Heritage Month” kicked off on September 15th and will continue through October 15th. Celebrations will be held throughout New York and the country. Harlem Community News will present upcoming events and coverage for the next 4 issues. (see pages 12-13) The 48th annual “African American Day” parade was held this past weekend in the village of Harlem. The day was filled with pride as African-American leaders and organizations strutted down Adam Clayton Powell Blvd. (see page 4) Last week I lost my first cousin, Linda Sullivan. We were close and grew up somewhat together in St. Albans, Queens. I moved to New York as a teenager, fifteen years older than Linda who was a baby I took care of her at the time while my her parents workd. Linda was devastated when I was diagnosed with cancer last year and went through chemo treatments and surgery this year. However, I am recovering and I am still here at 65. Linda slipped away in her sleep last week at 50 A reminder of how precious each day is and none of us know when it will be our time. Linda Sullivan. RIP Again, thank you to all who supported me through my cancer treatment with your prayers, cards and contribution

African Diaspora Organization Combats Oppression with Sacred Traditions

I

NYC’s Caribbean Cultural Center African Diaspora Institute bets on African sacred #Tradeitions to heal, empower, and activate the African Diaspora communities.

n our current era of systematic racism, gender-based violence, neo-fascism, and religious intolerance, a pioneering New York City based cultural arts organization is hosting Trade/itions, a multimedia event set to interrupt toxic narratives about people of color through the elevation of art, culture, and sacred traditions of the African Diaspora. On September 23rd, the Caribbean Cultural Center African Diaspora Institute (CCCADI), in partnership with the Aaron Davis Hall of the City University of New York, will once again deploy art and culture in the service of social justice through their annual Trade/itions multimedia event exploring contemporary manifestations of the African Spiritual traditions that enslaved Africans brought to the west during the Trans-Atlantic slave trade.

Now in its 2nd year, Trade/ itions will be held at Aaron Davis Hall. The gathering will showcase the various expressions of the Yoruba, Dahomey, and Kongo derived traditions of the Americas from international cultures, including

Cuba, Puerto Rico, Haiti, Brazil, Trinidad, and the United States. The event will incorporate traditional and contemporary performances, critical discussions, and film screenings by professors, thought leaders, artists, and activists. Trade/itions showcases how

sacred traditions have adapted, survived, and transformed in the Western Hemisphere and to the 21st Century. “When we look around us, we see a world that has gone back in time, to a social climate that actively threatens

our right to education, health, environment and quality of life. This is what our ancestors and forefathers struggled against and now it’s on us to continue their work,” shared Dr. Marta Moreno Vega, the organization’s founder and president. Ultimately, the event seeks

to provide a space to identify connections and tools to use in today’s struggles for social justice and cultural equity. “Trade/itions gives us an opportunity to connect with the sacred traditions that our people used as a way to exert their exis-

tence and power in an incredibly oppressive and grueling context; it gives us the opportunity to learn from that past and adapt their tools of liberation to today’s world,” she added.   Participating performers, traditional leaders and experts include: Ella Andall, DJ Rich

Medina, Dr. Jacob Olupona, Dr. Gloria Rodriguez, Valnizia Pereira, Navasha Daya, Dr. Akissi Britton, Dowoti Desir, Roger Bonair Agard, Neg Mawon, Maya Louisa, WUNMI, DJ Carlos Mena, Loira Limbal, Kwayera Archer Cunningham, Eliciana Nascimento, Dr. Sheriden Booker, Dr. Funlayo Wood, Alafia, Dr. Rachel Harding, Onaje Woodbine, Carlos De Oliveira, David Sosa, Dominick Guerriero, Yasser Tejeda y Palotre, Regine Roumain, Ayoka Wiles, among many others. Also, there will be the USA Film Premiere of Ancestral Voices: Part II, a film that connects the dots between various African based traditions and teaches us how to enhance our spiritual growth. Additionally, the event will host an intergenerational concert featuring Caribbean songstress Ella Andall, Neosoul Princess

ew York State Assemblyman Herman “Denny” Farrell Jr. has represented Harlem, Washington Heights, Hudson Heights, Sugar Hill, and Hamilton Heights in the Assembly for 42 years and has decided to retire at the tender age of 86 years old. To honor him before he retires Governor Andrew M. Cuomo renamed the most visited state park in New York City as Denny Farrell Riverbank State Park in a ceremony on Tuesday, September 5, 2017. A new sign hangs above the administration building at Denny Farrell Riverbank State Park. The Governor also announced the completion of the $25 million signature pedestri-

Leader John Flanagan, NYS Assembly Speaker Carl E. Heastie from the Bronx and the honoree, NYS Assemblyman Farrell Jr. Keith Wright opened the program stating how Assemblyman Farrell has served his constituents since 1974 under seven different governors, chaired the Manhattan Democratic Party for 28 years, and mentored him when he came to the state assembly. He cited how Farrell was an early leader for rent control and stabilization and for pre-K education for our children, and how Farrell was the voice for the voiceless who recognized the need for more park space in our community and fought to get the park space situated above the water waste treatment plant

Navasha Daya, and Hip-Hop Queens Oshun. Proceeds from the concert will be donated to hurricane relief efforts. CCCADI has spent over 40 years championing cultural equity at a local, national, and international level, pioneering initiatives that empower African descendants to claim and share their own stories. Trade/ itions offers a powerful space to fulfill on this mission.

THE IMPORTANCE OF EDUCATING ALL CHILDREN By: Dr. Elizabeth Primas (Program Manager, NNPA/ESSA Media Campaign)

Harlem Community Newspapers | September 21. 2017

I

6

am a former teacher. I taught for 25 years in the public school system and have held various titles in the field of education throughout my 40-year career. I have always had a passion for education. My family and I joke that I have been teaching since the first day of kindergarten. My older sister also wanted to be a teacher. So, we would spend our evenings “playing school” with our many siblings and neighbors. Because of our productive “pretend play” I began school already reading and writing. I remember printing the alphabet with pride. By the time I reached third grade I was reading everything I could get my hands on and helping my classmates read as well. In fact, the only time I was reprimanded was when I tried to help a classmate pronounce names during her social studies report on current events. I shared that time during my childhood, because it is important for educators to understand that children begin school on various levels. Children develop and retain information differently. Some students begin school ahead of the pack. As educators, it is our responsibility to ensure all children, irrespective of their initial academic level continue to make progress.

Unfortunately, most students are not progressing at an appropriate pace. The reauthorized, national education law, Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), grants states the freedom to develop their own academic standards and measures of accountability so long as those standards prepare students for college and career readiness. State academic standards can include a wide range of subject areas; in contrast to the previous emphasis on reading and mathematics. To support the academic achievement of students with varied academic ability, background, and socioeconomic status, it is vital that educators refrain from the one-size-fits-all model of instruction promoted during No Child Left Behind (NCLB). To improve academic achievement, we must reflect on our stated mission: to educate all children. Not every child is going to be a mathematician. Not every

child is going to be a scientist or doctor. However, every child is born with specific gifts and talents. It is up to us, as parents and educators, to help each child develop those specific talents. In a family of six children, each of my siblings had a different area of interest. One became a medical doctor, another a mathematician, still another, an engineer; there are two former teachers, and a law enforcement officer. We were all expected to excel in our respective fields, and we did. Success comes in many forms. A successful student is allowed to pursue his/her natural talents and encouraged to learn the skills needed to be a productive citizen. Had my siblings and I been limited to reading and mathematics, we probably wouldn’t have been as successful; not in our careers or personal lives. To improve academic achievement, let’s first equip teachers with the skills to recognize the natural talents that support and

encourage academic achievement. School systems must realize that tests only measure a finite set of skills and that skills do exist outside of those measured. Academic achievement is improved when we recognize the differences in children and embrace them rather than trying to put every child in the same, square box. Academic achievement is improved when parents take the initiative to advocate for their child’s needs from the womb all the way through college graduation and the start of their careers. Who is responsible for improving academic achievement? All of us. Get engaged, go to the meetings, participate in the professional development, take part in the free webinars, read the articles on education in your local newspapers, and be a voice in your child’s education. If you are looking for tips on how to get involved, or where to go to attend meetings, visit . www.nnpa.org/ essa. Dr. Elizabeth Primas is an educator, who spent more than 40 years working towards improving education for children of diverse ethnicities and backgrounds. Dr. Primas is the program manager for the NNPA’s Every Student Succeeds Act Public Awareness Campaign. Follow Dr. Primas on Twitter @ elizabethprimas.

Home Buying In Harlem Be Prepared to Buy Now

O

FOXWORTHREALTYONLINE.COM

by Rev. Charles Butler

ne of the most important aspects in the home buying process is having and maintaining a positive attitude to successfully complete the purchase. I am amazed at the power and impact positive thinking can have on the prospective buyer as they navigate through this most difficult process. Positive thinking can keep you moving toward the purchase of your home and help you push past many distractions and obstacles that could prevent you from realizing your goal of homeownership. You must have confidence in your abilities. You must trust the information and knowledge that you have acquired in the home buying workshops. You must rely on the research

you conducted on the various properties you have been considering. It will be important to proceed with caution and not make any hasty decisions you might later regret. You should have confidence in your home buying team. Your team is there to assist you. They are experienced resources to answer specific questions. Use their expertise whenever necessary but remember the final decision is yours. The one stop shop approach may seem convenient, but is not the best way to assemble your team. The positive thinking aspect of the home buying process comes through faith in God. The Apostle Paul in Philippians 4:13 states, “I can do all things in Christ who

strengthens me.” Trusting in God is a key component of this process. You will discover many prayers are required in addition to all your preparation to become a homeowner. Do not under estimate the power of prayer and the power of positive thinking. Have faith in God. Even with just the faith of a mustard seed, you can accomplish great things. Never give up, never quit, keep your eyes focused on the task of buying a home and you will succeed. This is the key to become a successful homeowner. If you are interested in attending the workshop or have questions regarding the home buying process contact Rev. Charles Butler at (212) 281 4887 ext. 231 or email at cbutler@hcci.org.

by the themes from the Apollo and Opera Philadelphia’s October 2017 opera, We Shall Not Be Moved. This community conversation will feature an excerpt of the award-winning documentary Let the Fire Burn, which covers one of the most tumultuous (and largely forgotten) clashes between government and citizens in modern American history. We’ll focus on some of today’s problems in Urban America the film addresses, particularly law enforcement and community relations and the lack of youth and family services. What can we do within our communities? What can New Yorkers learn from Philadelphia initiatives, and vice-versa? And can the arts help?

HISPANIC HERITAGE MONTH

HARLEM COMMUNITY NEWSPAPERS

Hispanic Heritage Month September 15 - October 15

D

By Lil Nickelson

uring Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15 to October 15) we recognize the contributions made and the important presence of Hispanic and Latino Americans to the United States and celebrate their heritage and culture. Hispanics have had a profound and positive influence on our country through their strong commitment to family, faith, hard work

and service. They have enhanced and shaped our national character with centuries-old traditions that reflect the multiethnic and multicultural customs of their community. Hispanic Heritage Month roots go back to 1968 and begins each year on September 15, which marked Independence Day for five Latin American countries in 1821: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicara-

gua. Mexico (September 16, 1810), Chile (September 18, 1810) and Belize (September 21, 1981) celebrate their independence during this period. The term Hispanic or Latino refers to people of Puerto Rican, South or Central American, or other Spanish cultures or origin regardless of race. Today, 55 million people, or 17% of the American population are of Hispanic or Latino origin. This represents a signif-

icant increase from the 2000 census, which registered the Hispanic population at 35.3 million or 13% of the total U.S. population. Each city and state celebrates in its own way, but many festivals, parades and festivities include traditional foods, dances and music. The influence of Hispanic culture is reflected in every aspect of American life from politics to education to music and television.

HARLEM COMMUNITY NEWSPAPERS

What are ‘STEAM’ Subjects and Why Do They Matter? (Statepoint)

I

f you’ve heard your child’s educators talking about “STEAM” subjects, they are referring to Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math. And these subjects are growing in importance, as more industries require a strong mastery of the concepts and skills involved. What’s more, a growing body of research shows that exposure to the arts can have a positive impact on one’s performance in science and math-oriented subjects. As your children prepares to succeed in all their classes, keep these things in mind: The Right Classes Talk to your children about ensuring they stack their class schedules with courses that challenge but

don’t overwhelm them. It’s easy to overload a schedule with far too many advanced science courses in one semester that can make success unattainable. By the same token, it’s important

to ensure that your student is taking enough of the right classes to build a strong foundation for future endeavors. A guidance counselor can help your child strike the right balance.

The Right Tools STEAM success is built on having the right tools, so be sure students are wellequipped. New models of calculators are taking into account the demands on today’s

students and offer expanded features that give students the ability to easily draw three dimensional graphs and view them from various angles to better analyze their shapes. For example, the fx-CG50, the newest model in Casio’s calculator portfolio, features a picture plot function and color LCD with a full textbook-style display. Likewise, students can build a strong arts foundation by learning to play an instrument. Modern music students may prefer using the most cutting-edge instruments, such as Casio’s Compact Grand Piano CGP-700, which features a touch display that gives them the option to choose tones, select rhythms and split and layer sounds, as well as the ability to record and playback music. This

digital piano has been engineered to have an authentic piano feel and concert grand piano sound. The Right Programming After school programming can be an ideal opportunity to reinforce STEAM learning in a way that is fun, creative and social. From the robotics club to the orchestra, find out what your school and larger community offer, and encourage your child to get involved. This programming will likely improve grades and test scores, as well as help your child draw connections between disciplines. While not all trends are worthy of your attention, the importance of STEAM learning can’t be understated and, as a parent, you can help bolster success in these subjects.

A

s September 18, National HIV/AIDS and Aging Awareness Day, passes we are reminded that anyone, regardless of age, can contract HIV. However, older adults are rarely targeted in HIV prevention campaigns and may not realize that they are still at risk for infection. As the population of older Americans at risk for, and living with, HIV/AIDS grows, more attention needs to be paid to the realities of aging and living with HIV/AIDS. Today, 59% of all people living with HIV in the United States are over 50, and it is predicted that number will increase to 70% by 2020. Sex and intimacy are ageless, but sexual health campaigns, doctors and older adults rarely discuss safe sex and aging. Though drugs like Viagra have extended sex lives

for adults, older adults may not insist on using condoms, because they know they cannot conceive. However, age is not a condom, and older adults are still at risk for contracting HIV and other STIs. Research shows that health care providers often assume their older patients are not having sex, or are reluctant to ask about an older patient’s sex life. Therefore, doctors and health care providers do not routinely screen for HIV when

treating older patients. As older adults tend to have other health conditions due to age, HIV symptoms can be overlooked or attributed to other illnesses. Older adults are, therefore, often diagnosed with HIV only when getting checked for other medical conditions. Because testing for HIV/AIDS in older adults is so uncommon, many are seriously ill with the virus when they are diagnosed. If left untreated, HIV/AIDS can be brutal on the mind and body. Older adults who find out they are HIV-positive often deal with emotional distress, social isolation, shame and depression—all of which can have a negative impact on health care management. HIV/AIDS wreaks havoc on the immune system, and can cause chronic inflammation. People living with HIV, especially older adults who are

Division of

already more susceptible to inflammation due to age, are at an increased risk for heart attacks and strokes. Other common diseases associated with HIV/AIDS in older adults include neuropathy or nerve damage; heart, brain, lung, liver and kidney disease; and osteoporosis. Today, a diagnosis of HIV/ AIDS is not a death sentence, and many live long, healthy lives after contracting the virus. While HIV/AIDS medication can now suppress the virus to point where experts say the risk of transmission is negligible, the medication is useless to those who do not know they are HIV-positive. In recognition of National HIV/ AIDS and Aging Awareness Day, NBLCA encourages frequent and routine testing. Send a text message with your zip code to KNOWIT (566948) to find HIV testing near you.

OUR HEART CHAKRA – Part 3: LOVE IS THE PRIMAL GLUE OF THE UNIVERSE. The Heart Chakra is the healer, the unifier. LOVE INTEGRATES and LACK OF LOVE DISINTEGRATES. There is nothing more devastating than lack of love. The Fourth chakra represents our basic right to love and be loved. Unfortunately, this chakra is easily damaged, diminished or wounded, and that wounds both spirit and soul, affects both the mind and body, and impacts the very core of the Self. Love, balance, self-reflection and acceptance, relationship intimacy, grief and compassion are the basic

issues of this chakra. This chakra is located in the chest (cardiac plexus), and is of the air element. All forms of child abuse are travesties of love - though not a complete absence of love, but simply an absence of “healthy love.” When this happens in childhood, we grow up not knowing what healthy love looks like and thus have a hard time creating it in our lives. Without a healthy relationship with the Self, reflective consciousness is impossible, so we end up seeking our grounded-ness through another - they become our reality, which usually drives them away. But when we “give them everything” and we lose

them, we bankrupt ourselves because we don’t have a center to which others can be attracted and stay - because ‘no one is home.’ There is no one inside us to love because we have given ourselves away. . . .

You know the drill. So, it’s no surprise that you are feeling a bit frazzled, and wishing for some, “Calgon take me away” downtime.

You can still do the regular stuff but what I am about to suggest is just an additional component, another perspective; one that may actually have

longer-lasting results in making you feel better and “beautiful” in spite of your stress. First start by counting your blessings, then assess how significant your problems really are. We all go through stressful times, but regardless of what you are experiencing, you won’t have to look far to find someone who is less fortunate. At least you are able to consider spending a couple of bucks on yourself to do something. Look beyond yourself and do something completely selfless for someone else. Skip your manicure, pedicure or facial, and instead give it as a gift certificate to someone who has nev-

er received one or who is going through personal or financial hard times. There is also something else you can give to others, and it’s free—a smile, that’s right, smile with a love that comes from your heart! It may sound corny, but as the old song goes, “What the world needs now is love sweet love.” You are an integral part of the world environment, so contribute your love to it. Then you will see how the joy of giving to others will make you glow from the inside out in a way that no cosmetic treatment ever could. Your true beauty will radiate from that internal

glow—a radiance that no lipstick, moisturizer, hairstyle or facial could ever duplicate. Basically, think of my suggestion of feeling better and beautiful through “selfless indulgence” as in the old make-up rule: “Before you apply foundation, your face (e.g. your spirit), should be a clean canvas.” Think about it.

Choose All Three! ne of the responses I get most often when I ask individuals during fitness assessments about what kind of exercise they are currently engaged in most often, the response is usually something like “I walk everywhere all the time”. While walking is an extremely beneficial aerobic exercise, according to the American Heart Association at least 30 minutes a day of aerobic exercise, 5 days a week is recommended– aerobic exercise represents only one of three major categories of exercise.

Additionally, I’ve also noticed that these same individuals often experience health issues that prevent them from fully enjoying their lives or for that mat-

ter their walk due to limited joint mobility from arthritis, acute injuries, repetitive strains and surgery leading to muscular imbalance. What type of exercise

activity is best? The best exercise is the type in which you feel motivated to do on a daily basis that falls into at least one or more categories of exercise. There are at least three categories of exercise under which all or most forms of exercise fall into. These include aerobic, strength/resistance and flexibility/balance exercises. (1) Aerobic exercise is the kind that is considered best for heart health in that various physical activities such as bicycling, swimming, walking, jogging, and dancing help to pump blood to the heart through increased circulation, which helps to lower blood pressure, cholesterol and decrease blood sugar levels. (2) Resistance exercise builds strength, reduces body fat and creates leaner muscle mass, which can lower bad cholesterol and raise good cholesterol. Weight machines, medicine balls, and dumbbells are examples of equipment utilized in resistance training. Push-ups, squats, and lunges are considered body weight resis-

tance exercises. Resistance exercises are particularly important for reducing belly fat, a major contributor to both heart disease and Type II diabetes. These exercises should be done at least every other day, two– three days per week. (3) Flexibility/balance exercises may not directly contribute to heart health, but helps “enable you to stay flexible and free from joint pain, cramping and other muscular issues” to keep walking, swimming, dancing or just about any other aerobic activity you can imagine. Flexibility exercises should be done every day. [http://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/health/ healthy_heart/move_more/ three-kinds-of-exercisethat-boost-heart-health] BAFF is unique because it combines all three categories of exercise, aerobic, resistance and flexibility, to improve overall physical fitness from head to toe.

Columbia University Celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month

THE JACK AND IRENE DELANO ARCHIVE Jack and Irene Delano’s love for Puerto Rico began almost by accident, but the art they produced there had a major impact. Now their correspondence, manuscripts, art, musical scores, photographs, and films are part of the Latino Arts and Activism Collection at Columbia University’s Rare Book & Manuscript Library. Born in 1914 in what is now Ukraine, Jack migrated to the U.S. in 1923 and studied music and painting in Philadelphia, where he met Irene Esser, a Canadian four years his junior. The couple first traveled to Puerto Rico in 1941, and were so moved by the island, they settled there permanently in 1946. Through pioneering photographs and films, Delano chronicled the island’s transformative period of economic, political, social, and cultural change, and helped launch the careers of numerous Puerto Rican actors and filmmakers. A gifted artist, Irene founded the government’s influential graphics division and made a deep mark as an arts educator. She also illustrated public art projects, including Libros para el pueblo, the U.S. postage stamp commemorating the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, and dozens of books. The couple’s extensive archive joins other recent additions to the Columbia collection, curated by Professor Frances Negrón-Muntaner, including the papers of writers Jack Agüeros, Manuel Ramos Otero, and Dolores Prida, and a complete run of El Diario/La Prensa, the oldest Spanish-language daily newspaper in New York City. The Delano archive will open to the public once cataloging is complete.

Learn more about the archive at libraries.columbia.edu.
