JUNETEENTH CELEBRATES FREEDOM

ANNUAL GUIDE TO JOYS OF SUMMER

“Juneteeth” marks the forceable end of slavery in the state of Texas, one of the last states to abolish the practice. On June 18, 1865, 2000 Union troops, under General Gordon Granger, arrived in Galveston and delivered General Order No. 3, which set forth that all slaves are free, declaring personal rights and the rights of property between former master and slaves. Today, Juneteenth is marked throughout the United States as a celebration of freedom. By Stacey Adger

Juneteenth observances celebrate emancipation EMANCIPATION No rack can torture me, My soul’s at liberty. Behind this mortal bone There knits a bolder one You cannot prick with saw, Nor rend with scymitar. Two bodies therefore be; Bind one, and one will flee. The eagle of his nest No easier divest And gain the sky, Than mayest thou, Except thyself may be Thine enemy; Captivity is consciousness, So’s liberty.

W

hen President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation on Jan. 1, 1863, it set forth that all slaves, the approximate 3 to 4 million on American soil, were free. In areas of the United States which were still under rebellion, that freedom for countless slaves, would be delayed. The motives surrounding President Lincoln’s penning of the document are still debated today; did he want to free slaves out of some deep moral conviction or was it done to punish slave holding states who had seceded from the Union? The Proclamation had no teeth; it was not a law passed by Congress and even if it was, who was there to enforce it? The nation was in the grip of a bloody Civil War, as Union troops swept through areas, they would liberate slaves but to what? Just as the planters and owners lost their labor force, the slaves lost food, shelter, clothing and a future of uncertainty. But what happens if you find

’Juneteeth’ marks the forceable end of slavery in the state of Texas, one of the last states to abolish the practice. out, more than two years after the end of slavery, on paper, that you were actually emancipated years before? It is called “Juneteeth,” and marks the forceable end of slavery in the state of Texas, one of the last states to abolish the practice. On June 18, 1865, 2000 Union troops, under General Gordon Granger, arrived in Galveston and delivered General Order No. 3, which set forth that all slaves are free, declaring personal rights and the rights of property between former master and slaves. The freedmen were supposed to continue working, however, for wages. They were admonished that idleness would not be condoned. The announcement was met with jubilation among the former slaves and became an annual observance. Years later, as part of the Federal Writers’

Project under the WPA, people were sent out to interview former slaves about their recollections of that “peculiar institution.” One such interview was with “Prophet” Kemp of Daytona Beach, Fla. He recalled being a slave on the plantation of John Gay, who he termed one of the meanest plantations owners in Mississippi. He recounted the beatings, the lack of food, long hours and the outright cruelty of the owner and the overseers he employed. He told the writer that Gay feared the impending freedom of his slaves and ordered his overseers to keep all visitors away. Word did reach General Granger of the conditions at the plantation, and on May 8, 1865 the 100 plus slaves were freed. “Juneteeth” is celebrated to some extent today. In the early part of the 1900s, African Americans would hold observances, generally under the auspices of the church. While some communities hold gatherings, festival or educational/ social consciousness activities, in other communities largely ignore it. Observances have been held in Warren and Youngstown over the past several years.

Senate OK’s Williams to post in Commerce Department WASHINGTON — The U.S. Senate voted on May 14 to confirm Jay Williams as Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Economic Development. As head of the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Economic Development Administration (EDA), Williams will be responsible for fulfilling the agency’s mission of leading the federal economic development agenda by promoting innovation and competitiveness, preparing American regions for growth and WILLIAMS success in the worldwide economy. “I am pleased that the U.S. Senate has confirmed Jay Williams as Assistant Secretary for Economic Development at the Commerce Department’s Economic Development Administration,” said U.S. Commerce Secretary Penny Pritzker. “As the only federal agency focused exclusively on economic development, EDA plays a vital role in building sustainable economies in communities across the United States. Given Jay’s wealth of private and public sector experience, I am confident in his ability to lead economic development efforts at the Department of Commerce and help build the foundation and set the conditions for economic growth and success in communities across the country.” “I am honored to continue my service to President Obama in the role of Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Economic Development and I thank the U.S. Senate for their vote of confidence,” said Williams. “I look forward to learning from and working with EDA’s staff and the Department of Commerce team to promote American innovation and regional collaboration and to helping EDA fulfil its vital mission of helping distressed communities throughout the United States realize their local-plans to grow businesses and jobs.” Prior to joining the Department of Commerce, Williams served as the executive director of the Office of Recovery for Auto Communities and Workers.

S

ummer is a great time for fun outdoor celebrations. Many people will mark this summer with family reunions, birthdays, Juneteenth, Fourth of July or just fun in the sun. Sometimes these well-intended celebraHealthy tions can turn into a day Living of unhealthy overeating Vicki or a gluttonous junk Haywood food fest. However, we can have healthy, active Doe outdoor celebrations that will give us an opportunity to enjoy quality time with family, fun physical activities and healthy eating. It just takes careful planning. Plan for Physical Activity

The first step is to host your outing where there are opportunities for physical activity. Research has shown that where there’s an activity friendly environment or open space to play, children and families will participate together in more physical activities.

Look for a setting that has walking/bike trails, a playground for children, or open space to play. Make the focus of the picnic outing about family togetherness and social support, not just eating. Look for a setting that has walking/bike trails, a playground for children, or open space to play. Bring badminton net and gear, Frisbees, hula-hoops, jump ropes (doubleDutch) and other equipment to keep folks busy. And don’t forget a boom box to play the jams for line dancing. It’s always fun to get everyone doing “The Electric Slide” and other dances! The key is to keep family and guests busy and moving. Make the focus of the picnic outing about family togetherness and social support, not just eating. Plan for Healthy Eating

A healthy picnic is really not that hard to accomplish. It takes strategic planning, tweaking and making healthy food selections that will be good for you while not jeopardizing good taste. The American Dietetic Association suggests that we find healthier alternatives to the traditional high-fat picnic foods like

fried chicken, hamburgers, hot dogs, mayonnaise-based salads, pasta, cakes, cookies, chips, sweetened beverages, and sodas. Instead, have an abundance of fresh and colorful vegetables such as cherry tomatoes, sliced yellow squash, zucchini, baby carrots, red/green peppers, cucumbers and celery sticks and serve with salsa, low-fat Greek yogurt mixed with herbs or hummus. Throw some of these veggies together with fresh herbs and make a chopped veggie salad lightly tossed with olive oil and served with your favorite vinaigrette. Try making fruit kabobs with a selection of watermelon, strawberries, honeydew, pineapple, apples, and peaches. Make a low-fat fruit dessert with a cup of various fruit topped with light whipped cream. This is usually a hit with kids! When grilling, use 90 percent lean ground turkey burgers, veggie burgers or lean meat kabobs. Grill lean meat kabobs made from

natural 99 percent fat-free, skinless, antibiotic free chicken breast or use for grilled chicken burgers. Grilled vegetables are also very delicious. Use veggies such as portabella mushrooms, bell peppers, zucchini, yellow squash and red onion. Try making sandwich wraps from whole-grain tortilla wraps stuffed with grilled chicken or veggies and salsa or greek yogurt mixed with herbs. Substitute sweetened beverages and sodas with fresh cold water or homemade flavored water that has various fruits in it. Ice-cold herbal teas are awesome when it’s hot outside. Try jasmine green tea, or calming chamomile tea. Very refreshing! But even after all of the substituting, sometimes you may want some of the traditional picnic dishes. You can still have these dishes if you tweak and modify the ingredients to be healthier. Over the years, I have tweaked my Southern Potato Salad so that it’s healthier without jeopardizing the taste. My recipe appears on the jump page of this article.

Timeline: Ella in Youngstown, not Rome

Acclaimed jazz icon tied knot in Youngstown in 1947 BY MARK C. PEYKO METRO MONTHLY EDITOR

E

lla Fitzgerald, widely regarded as one of the greatest jazz singers of all time, was married in Youngstown during a two-week engagement at the MerryGo-Round nightclub in 1947. Fitzgerald was performing in early December at the West Side club with her jazz trio, which included FITZGERALD musicians Hank Jones, Ray Brown and Charlie Smith. Her appearance in Youngstown followed a one-week engagement in November at Chicago’s Regal Theatre.

According to records at the Mahoning County Courthouse, Fitzgerald and Ray Brown were married during a civil ceremony on Dec. 10, 1947. The marriage license was signed and recorded on Dec. 12 by Mahoning County Probate Judge Clifford M. Woodside. Bruce R. Black served as justice of the peace. Stuart Nicholson republished the document in his book, “Ella Fitzgerald: A Biography of the First Lady of Jazz.” In the document, Brown listed his address as New York City while Fitzgerald gave 608 North Ave. in Youngstown as her place of residence. Brown and Fitzgerald listed their ages as 21 and 29, respectively. In “Ella Fitzgerald: The Chick Webb Years and Beyond,” authors Ron Fritts and Ken Vail included a news brief from

New York that announced the nuptials. It read: “Ella Fitzgerald, famed jazz singer, was married December 10 to Ray Brown, star bassman recently with Norman Granz and formerly in the Dizzy Gillespie band.” By 1953, the couple had split. In the Sept. 10, 1953 issue of Jet, a headline in the magazine read: “Ella Fitzgerald sues mate for Mexican divorce.” According to the publication, Fitzgerald had filed for divorce in Juarez, Mexico, charging her spouse with incompatibility. The magazine noted that Fitzgerald was estranged from Brown shortly after their marriage in Youngstown and tried to keep her divorce plans secret, but a reporter uncovered the divorce papers in Juarez.

Williams holds a B.S.B.A. in finance from Youngstown State University.

F

rom the minute you meet Sophia Brooks, you feel an instant magnetism. Packed tight within her diminutive frame, her bubbly, warm personality envelops you and her bright smile lights up the room. Although you may have just met her, you feel like you’ve known her for years. You want to sit down with a cup of coffee and spend an entire afternoon hearing stories about her life and the rich history and contribution that she has created for her herself and the Mahoning Valley. And, maybe that’s because this 77year-old local legend and internationally-known vocalist has such a vast career and has made such a tremendous impact – even though she’s a bit shy to share her stories and would rather ask you questions about your life. The Youngstown native began singing and tap dancing at the tender age of seven, and it wasn’t long before she was recognized for her talent. “People would say to me, ‘Where did you get a voice like that,’ and I would just say, ‘Well, I was born with this voice,’” Brooks said. The 1951 graduate of South High School began voice lessons at the age of 15 and landed a singing role in a spring review show at South High. And, from there, her soprano soloist career began to snowball. She furthered her musical studies at Youngstown State University’s Dana School of Music and the Cleveland Institute of Music. She also helped pave the way as a pioneer in the female, African-American community. She was the first African-American paid professional soloist, performing at area churches, including First Presbyterian Church, St. John’s Episcopal Church and First Christian Church of Youngstown. She was also a soloist with the Youngstown Symphony Choir under the direction of

“It’s a sip of wine, it’s summertime!�

– Kenny Chesney


METRO

RESTAURANTS & DINING

Fundraiser benefits Beaver Creek Wildlife Education Center

T

he spring season has provided a number of fine wines at very reasonable prices. Every store taste, dinner taste and fundraiser produced exceptionally fine wines for the smart wine enthusiast. One of my favorite events is the Beaver Creek Wildlife Education Center fundraiser taste. The Center is located at

the entrance of Beaver Creek State Park. Dedicated to connecting our commuThe nity with nature and Wine encouraging environGuy mental conservation, John Webster it is staffed entirely by volunteers from the surrounding community. This year, they featured an array of Ferrante wines from Ashtabula County. I’ve sampled Ferrante wines for over two decades, and I’m always impressed by their quality. I started off with a glass of their 2013 American Riesling. Cold fermented with crisp apple and peach fruit flavors, this medium dry Riesling is just the wine for warm weather outdoor picnics. Moving along to the red selections, I was given a sample of Ferrante’s 2012 Grand River Valley (GRV) Signature Series Cabernet Franc. Simply put, this cool-climate

Cab Franc from Northeast Ohio is outstanding. Dark red fruit and berry flavors tinged with earth make this complex wine a real joy to drink. With good California Cabernet Franc starting at $30 and up and St. Emilion Bordeaux in the stratosphere, I recommend that you give this complex red a try. Also on hand for sampling were Ferrante’s sweet Blueberry and Raspberry Blanc dessert wines. If you haven’t tried these scrumptious fruit wines with chocolate or pastry, you’re really missing out on a treat. Both of these fine wines can be appreciated by beginning wine drinkers up to seasoned wine connoisseurs. I’d like to thank Karen Swanson and the Education Center’s president Tom Butch for a wonderful tour and afternoon. On April 25, I attended Michael Charles Premier Wines’ spring dinner taste at Vernon’s Café in Niles. Once again, Michael

Charles owners Nick and Loretta Uroseva provided five wonderful wines to go with Vernon’s delicious entrees. As we were seated, we were poured a glass of Veuve du Vernay Brut bubbly from France. The crisp apple and pear flavors were a fine match for the Old World bruschetta topped with marinated tomatoes and mozzarella cheese delivered promptly from the kitchen. This is a fine inexpensive bubbly for informal summertime get-togethers. For our next course of jumbo freshwater shrimp stuffed with crab cake, we were given a glass of 2013 Le Hameau Sauvignon Blanc from southwestern France. Crisp mineral-laden citrus fruit flavors were just the answer for the rich stuffed shrimp. The next course from Vernon’s kitchen was spring vegetable lasagna drizzled with roasted red pepper cream sauce. This seasonal dish was paired to a glass of 2009 Covila II Crianza from the Rioja region of Spain. Overflowing ripe berry and cocoa flavors lead to a long, textured finish that seems to last forever. At $14.99 a bottle, this wine should be in every wine drinker’s cellar. Northwest Sonoma County, California, is the home of the fourth wine poured. The 2009 Steelhead Red Blend was simply perfect with Vernon’s slow-roasted pork loin with sautéed Italian greens. Juicy berry and red fruit flavors follow through to a lush, elegant finish that really complemented the tender pork. Our final main course of chargrilled sirloin filet with smashed garlic Yukon potatoes drizzled with caramelized onions needed a full-bodied red to pair with. The 2012 La Postelle Cuvee Cabernet from the Apalta Valley of Chile was a great choice. An interesting blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (91 percent) and Cabernet Franc (9 percent), it just oozes with dark plum and red fruit flavors and finishes boldly with a textured long finish. Vernon’s sommelier Dennis Huston is starting a new venture with chocolate bars made especially to accompany wine, and at the end of the evening, he let me try a “Dennis’ Chocolate for Wine” sample. It perfectly complemented the La Postelle Cabernet. Cabs can be tannic when young, and the dark chocolate made it more approachable and enjoyable. I look forward to trying it with other styles of wine such as Merlot, Pinot and Port. Dennis’ Chocolate for Wine

will soon be available for purchase; for more information contact Dennis directly at newwine42@yahoo.com. I want to thank the Michael Charles and the Vernon’s staffs for an extremely enjoyable evening of food, conversation, and fine wine. On May 20, the Springfield Grille held an informative “Whiskeys of the World” tasting, matching five specially-prepared dinner entrees to whiskeys from around the world. Joseph DeLuca of Beverage Resources in Lakewood, Ohio was on hand to lead us through the five different whiskeys, describing their unique characteristics. Our first entrée was Philly steak “cigars,” (steak cut to the size of a cigar) with balsamic onion aioli paired to a glass of American bourbon from the Bulleit Distilling Company of Kentucky. I was impressed with the sweet aroma of this bourbon and how it complemented the juicy flavors of the Philly steak. Bulleit Distilling was also the source of our next sampling. Their Tennessee Rye Whiskey was paired to marinated duck breast drizzled in a citrus-shallot vinaigrette. The Tennessee Rye had a somewhat sharper nose and a more distinct finish than their bourbon, but it was just great with the citrusy duck. A glass of Ireland’s own Black Bush Whis-

salmon filet set atop bok choy, lotus root, and other Asian vegetables for our next course. The smooth, easy-drinking Black Bush whiskey was a perfect choice for the distinctive Scottish salmon. This was my favorite whiskey because of its smoothness and lack of “heat.” Whisky-marinated flank steak with roasted whipped potatoes and grilled brussels sprouts was paired to a sampling of Scotland’s Glenmorangie Ten-Year Whisky for the next course. Light gold in color, the Glenmoranie’s distinctive nose and finish was outstanding with the bold flavors of the flank steak. A bourbon-baked apple with espressotinged bourbon ice cream was presented with a glass of Canada’s own Crown Royal XO for our final dessert course. The Grille’s kitchen gets a huge thumbs-up for this delicious dessert. If you’re a fan of Canadian whisky, I highly recommend this dish. For those wondering why sometimes it’s spelled “whiskey” and sometimes “whisky” – in America and Ireland, we tend to spell it “whiskey.” In Scotland, Canada, and Japan, they favor the “whisky” spelling. So the spelling depends on the beverage’s country of origin. This was a fantastic evening filled with great information about whiskeys from around the world. I hope the Grille will have DeLuca back, because he is a true treasure chest of information about whiskeys and other imbibements. Upcoming events include a Springfield Grille whiskey dinner pairing (contact restaurant for date); the Upstairs Restaurant’s Wine Down, third Thursday tasting; Charlie’s Premier Wines of Howland, every Saturday; Wine Styles, every other week on Thursday, Friday and Saturday; Vintage Estate, third Saturday tasting; and Michael Charles Premier Wines (Elm Road), second Saturday tasting. If your restaurant, shop or charity event is having an upcoming wine tasting, please email me a month in advance at wineguy@ metromonthly.net.

Blockbusters, cartoon dramas, movie sequels – it must be summer!

W

hether you’re a junkie for blockbusters or an admirer of the less familiar, change-of-pace film, this summer’s crop of movies aims to please all tastes. While barbeques and days at the pool can prove taxing, it’s all a matter of going the extra mile to seek out the seasonal gems. If this isn’t your prerogative, these next three months are loaded with the usual popcorn-munching fare that we’ve grown accustomed to each year. Now, let’s just cross our fingers and hope that at least a few can deliver the goods.

Enjoy Summer

SUMMER MOVIES

neered ex-military hunter (Channing Tatum) arrives on Earth to track her down. A Most Wanted Man (July 25 – Not Yet Rated) – Though he passed away earlier this year, Philip Seymour Hoffman will grace the screen in one of his last completed roles. This spy-thriller follows a Chechen Muslim who gets caught in the international war on terror after illegally immigrating to Hamburg. With Rachel McAdams, Robin Wright, Willem Dafoe and Daniel Bruhl.

On Film Ty Landis

Edge of Tomorrow (June 6 – Rated PG-13) – The reliable director Doug Liman (“Mr. & Mrs. Smith”) is no stranger to summer actioners, this time helming a sci-fi action-thriller about a soldier (Tom Cruise) who finds himself caught in a time loop while in a war with aliens. Full disclosure: when Cruise’s name is attached to a project, I’m usually there. With Emily Blunt, Bill Paxton, Brendan Gleeson

and Noah Taylor. 22 Jump Street (June 13 – Rated R) – Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum return in this sequel to the 2012 hit based off of the popular 80s TV series. This time, the charismatic duo goes undercover at a local university where the laughs hopefully prove to be as effective as they were in the first entry and as drunkenly gleeful as college itself. How to Train Your Dragon 2 (June 13 – PG-13) – While Disney’s “Frozen” owned the box-office in 2013, the Dreamworks sequel to the 2010 animated success should have no problem getting kids and adults to the multiplex for another adventure between Viking Hiccup (voiced by Jay Baruchel) and his faithful dragon, Toothless. With the voices of Cate Blanchett, Gerard Butler, Kit Harrington, Craig Ferguson, America Ferrara, Jonah Hill, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Kirsten Wiig. Jersey Boys (June 20 – Rated R) – Though not likely to tickle the fancy of the younger demographic frequenting theaters this summer, this Clint Eastwood directed-biopic/musical following the iconic ‘60s group the Four Seasons could serve as a nice change of pace for moviegoers. Let’s just hope the film isn’t as dry as its trailer or as crusty as the 84-year-old Eastwood. The Rover (June 20 – Rated R) – Australian director David Michôd returns to the outback for another tale of violence and revenge in this dystopian drama following a hardened policeman (Guy Pearce) and his attempts to force a wounded thief (Robert Pattinson) to help him catch his gang. Transformers – Age of Extinction (June 27 – Not Yet Rated) – Michael Bay’s fourth entry in this flamboyantly loud franchise swaps out its prior lead Shia LaBeouf for Mark Wahlberg and a few other cast additions. Whether the latter

‘Edge of Tomorrow’ with Tom Cruise opens on June 6

ELECTRONIC IMAGE COURTESY OF 20TH CENTURY FOX

‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ opens on July 11 proves to be an upgrade or not, the main attraction has never been the human characters, but the Autobots and their battle with the Decepticons. With John Goodman, Ken Watanabe, Kelsey Grammer, Titus Welliver and Nicola Peltz.

July Tammy (July 2 – Rated R) – The first week of July is usually reserved for the summer’s biggest blockbuster, but this year, comedic wonder Melissa McCarthy (“Bridesmaids”) will have to suffice. McCarthy plays a woman who hits the road with her profane and alcoholic grandmother after getting fired from her job and learning that her husband has been unfaithful. With Susan Sarandon, Sandra Oh, Toni Collette, Dan Aykroyd and Kathy Bates Boyhood (July 11 – Rated R) – It’s hard not to get excited for Richard Linklater’s (the Before series) 12 years (all with the same cast) in the making drama following the life of a young man, Mason (Ellar Coltrane), from ages 5 to 18. With a concept this novel, few filmmakers are capable of transcending such an ambitious blueprint, but

Linklater is worth putting your money on. And get comfortable, this is the director’s longest film so far, clocking in close to three hours. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (July 11 – Not Yet Rated) – The latest incarnation of the franchise focuses on the growing rift between the genetically evolved apes and their leader Caesar and a band of humans who survived a deadly virus a decade earlier. Led by director Matt Reeves (“Let Me In”), “Dawn” has the potential to be this summer’s best and most intelligent sequel. With Gary Oldman, Keri Russell, Judy Greer, Andy Serkis and Jason Clarke. Life Itself (July 11 – Unrated) – Oscar-nominated filmmaker Steve James (“Hoop Dreams”) focuses on the life of the legendary and inspiring film critic Roger Ebert. Jupiter Ascending (July 18 – Not Yet Rated) – Andy and Lana Wachowski (“Cloud Atlas”) bring their visionary palette to the sci-fi genre with their latest adventure, a colorful, special-effectsdriven adventure following a young destitute woman (Mila Kunis) who awakes to her true destiny in the universe when a genetically engi-

Calvary (Aug. 1 – Not Yet Rated) After he is threatened during a confession, a goodnatured priest (Brendan Gleeson) must battle dark forces closing in around him. With Chris O’Dowd, Kelly Reilly, M. Emmet Walsh. Get on Up (Aug. 1 – Not Yet Rated) A chronicle of James Brown’s (Chadwick Boseman) rise from extreme poverty to become one of the most influential musicians in history. Guardians of the Galaxy (Aug. 1 – Not Yet Rated) – Perhaps Marvel’s biggest gamble yet, the James Gunn-directed ”Guardians” sports an eclectic cast and finds a space adventurer (Chris Pratt) the object of a bounty hunt after stealing an orb coveted by a treacherous villain. Gunn has been a talent to watch, but the film’s trailers have been less than promising. With Zoe Saldana, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Glenn Close and Benicio Del Toro. Lucy (Aug. 8 – Not Yet Rated) – A woman (Scarlett Johansson), accidentally caught in a dark deal, turns the tables on her captors and transforms into a merciless warrior. From director Luc Besson. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (Aug. 8 – Not Yet Rated) – The hard-shell warriors reemerge in a new decade to battle Shredder and his evil Foot Clan. The Expendables 3 (Aug. 15 – Not Yet Rated) – The aging action stars return once again, this time incorporating some younger blood into the mix to help them take down an arms dealer. With Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Mel Gibson, Antonio Banderas, Jet Li, Wesley Snipes, Dolph Lundgren, Kelsey Grammer, Harrison Ford and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Frank Miller’s Sin City – A Dame to Kill For (Aug. 22 – Not Yet Rated) It’s been nine years since the star-studded original won over newbies and fans of the source material. This time, the town’s most hard-boiled citizens cross paths with some of its more-reviled inhabitants. With Jessica Alba, Mickey Rourke, Rosario Dawson, Bruce Willis, Josh Brolin and more.
