Despite COVID Voices of the Fatherless Child celebrates 10 years of giving Even with the coronavirus, Voice of the Fatherless Child celebrated its 10th year of the Single Parent Christmas Project along with sponsors, Home Depot-Northshore Location, Hupy & Abraham, Church Women United, Singer-Worldwide DG, spoken word poet Keziah Love, and many more. Voice of the Fatherless Child was able to support 5 families this year. Normally they would support 10 families per year, but for the safety of the families and volunteers, the number of families this year was reduced to 5. The families received coats and clothes, HD Nook tablets, Star Wars drones, Easy Bake Kitchen Sets and other toys along with Christmas trees, lights and decorations. Voice of the Fatherless Child’s Founder Monte Mabra (back row, right) and his volunteers from Home Depot-Northshore delivered the trees, decorations and gifts to the families on Saturday, December 5, 2020.

On Monday, December 14, 2020, former MLB player and President of The Players Alliance Curtis Granderson, along with other former and current MLB players, and Interchange Food Pantry distributed food, COVID-19 supplies and baseball gear to families at St. Mark AME Church, 1616 W. Atkinson Ave. The Players Alliance was formed about six months ago with nearly 150 Black current and former big league players leading the charge. The Alliance launched a two month, cross-country mobile tour in partnership with Pull Up Neighbor, a Black-owned community response team. Many underserved children have endured countless losses due to the pandemic, including access to learn and play baseball. This program’s goal is to help counter all that and provide support during these uncertain times. The Brewers pitched in, too, with a masked up Italian Sausage and manager Craig Counsell helping out. www.milwaukeetimesnews.com

Charley Pride, a country music Black superstar, dies at 86 Charley Pride, country music’s first Black superstar whose rich baritone on such hits as “Kiss an Angel Good Morning” helped sell millions of records and made him the first Black member of the Country Music Hall of Fame, has died. He was 86. Pride died Saturday, Decmeber 12, 2020 in Dallas of complications from COVID-19, according to Jeremy Westby of the public relations firm 2911 Media. “I’m so heartbroken that one of my dearest and oldest friends, Charley Pride, has passed away. It’s even worse to know that he passed away from COVID-19. What a horrible, horrible virus. Charley, we will always love you,” Dolly Parton tweeted. Pride released dozens of albums and sold more than 25 million records during a career that began in the mid1960s. Hits besides “Kiss an Angel Good Morning” in 1971 included “Is Anybody Goin’ to San Antone,” “Burgers and Fries,” “Mountain of Love,” and “Someone Loves You Honey.” He had three Grammy Awards, more than 30 No. 1 hits between 1969 and 1984, won the Country Music Association’s Top Male Vocalist and Entertainer of the Year awards in 1972 and was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2000. He won the Willie Nelson Lifetime Achievement Award last month from the Country Music Association. “He destroyed barriers and did things that no one had ever done,” said Darius Rucker on Twitter. “Heaven just got one of the finest people I know.” Tanya Tucker tweeted “I’m just so thankful I got to sing a song with

ican country singer.′ That’s about the only thing that’s changed. This country is so race-conscious, so ate-up with colors and pigments. I call it `skin hangups’ — it’s a disease.” Pride was raised in Sledge, Mississippi, the son of a sharecropper. He had seven brothers and three sisters. In 2008 while accepting a Lifetime Achievement Award as part of the Mississippi Governor’s Awards for Excellence in the Arts, Pride said he never focused on race. “My older sister one time said, ‘Why are you singing THEIR music?’” Pride said. “But we all understand what the y’all-and-us-syndrome has been. See, I never as an individual accepted that, and I truly believe that’s why I am where I am today.” As a young man before launching his singing career, he was a pitcher and outfielder in the Negro American League with the Memphis Red Sox and in the Pioneer League in Montana. After playing minor league baseball a couple of years, he ended up in Helena, Mon-

they might have had.” Throughout his career, he sang positive songs instead of sad ones often associated with country music. “Music is a beautiful way of expressing oneself and I truly believe music should not be taken as a protest,” he told The Associated Press in 1985. “You can go too far in anything — singing, acting, whatever — and become politicized to the point you cease to be an entertainer.” In 1994, he wrote his autobiography, “Pride: The Charley Pride Story,” in which he disclosed he was mildly manic depressive. He had surgery in 1997 to remove a tumor from his right vocal cord. “Charley Pride was a trail blazer whose remarkable voice and generous spirit broke down barriers in country music just as his hero Jackie Robinson had in baseball,” tweeted director and producer Ken Burns. He received the Living Legend award from The Nashville Network/Music City News, recognizing 30 years of achievement, in 1997. “I’d like to be remembered as a good person who tried to be a good entertainer and made people happy, was a good American who paid his taxes and made a good living,” he said in 1985. “I tried to do my best and contribute my part.” He is survived by his wife, Rozene, whom he married in 1956; three children, Kraig, Dion and Angela; and several grandchildren.

him.” Billy Ray Cyrus called him a “gentleman,” “legend” and a “true trailblazer.” The Smithsonian in Washington acquired memorabilia from Pride, including a pair of boots and one of his guitars, for the the National Museum of African American History and Culture. Ronnie Milsap called him a “pioneer” and said that without his encouragement, Milsap might never have gone to Nashville. “To hear this news tears out a piece of my heart,” he said in a statement. Other Black country stars came before Pride, namely DeFord Bailey, who was a Grand Ole Opry member between 1927 and 1941. But until the early 1990s, when Cleve Francis came along, Pride was the only Black country singer signed to a major label. In 1993, he joined the Opry cast in Nashville. “They used to ask me how it feels to be the `first colored country singer',” he told The Dallas Morning News in 1992. “Then it was `first Negro country singer;’ then `first black country singer.′ Now I’m the `first African Amer-

tana, where he worked in a zinc smelting plant by day and played country music in clubs at night. Pride was part of the Texas Rangers’ ownership group for the last 10 years and the team will fly the flags at halfstaff at Globe Life Field and Globe Life Park on Sunday and Monday in his memory. “The Texas Rangers join the country music world in mourning the loss of Charley Pride. While Mr. Pride was a legendary performer who entertained millions of fans in the United States and around the world, we will remember him as a true friend to this franchise,” the team said in a statement. After a tryout with the New York Mets, Pride visited Nashville and broke into country music when Chet Atkins, head of RCA Records, heard two of his demo tapes and signed him. To ensure that Pride was judged on his music and not his race, his first few singles were sent to radio stations without a publicity photo. After his identity became known, a few country radio stations refused to play his music. For the most part, though, Pride said he was well received. Early in his career, he would put white audiences at ease when he joked about his “permanent tan.” “Music is the greatest communicator on the planet Earth,” he said in 1992. “Once people heard the sincerity in my voice and heard me project and watched my delivery, it just dissipated any apprehension or bad feeling

Lucille Bridges, mother of anti-segregation icon Ruby Bridges, dies st 86 Lucille Bridges, who in 1960 braved a gauntlet of threats and racist slurs to escort her daughter to a formerly all-white school in New Orleans in what became a symbol of opposition to segregation, has died at age 86. Civil rights activist Ruby Bridges, who walked up the stairs of William Frantz Elementary School six decades ago to become its first Black student, announced her mother's death on Instagram late Tuesday, November 10, 2020. She included a photo showing mother and daughter holding hands as they exited the school, flanked by U.S. marshals. "Today our country lost a hero. Brave, progressive, a champion for change. She helped alter the course of so many lives by setting me out on my path as a six year old little girl. Our nation lost a Mother of the Civil Rights Movement today. And I lost my mom. I love you and am grateful for you. May you Rest In Peace," wrote Ruby Bridges, who was memorialized in an iconic painting by Norman Rockwell depicting her, notebook and ruler in

hand and accompanied by burly marshals, walking past a wall scrawled with a racial epithet. New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell said in a statement Tuesday night that Lucille Bridges is "one of the mothers of the Civil Rights Movement in New Orleans." She said the city mourns her loss. "Lucille insisted, seeing the action as an opportunity to help all Black children, and walked Ruby, with federal marshals, past chanting and taunting white protesters and to the schoolhouse," Cantrell said. "Mother and daughter both revealed their character and courage." Lucille was born to Missis-

sippi sharecroppers at a time when Black children rarely went beyond the 3rd grade, according to WGNO. Her family later moved to New Orleans. She gave birth to Ruby in 1954, the same year as the landmark Supreme Court case Brown vs. Board of Education, which struck down the decades-old "separate but equal" doctrine, ending segregation in the schools. But Louisiana was one of several southern states that defied Brown until a federal court ordered them to integrate in 1960. Even so, the school district where the Bridges lived required Black students to take an exam to determine if they could compete with white classmates. Out of 165 students taking the exam, Ruby was one of five to pass and the only one to decide to attend William Frantz Elementary. In an interview several years ago, Lucille explained that before her daughter's first day of classes on Nov. 14, 1960, the Orleans Parish school superintendent "explained to me and my husband that ... we had to pray because things were going to

get really worse." She said that when they "drove up right by the school, they had so many United States marshals, so many people just standing, screaming and hollering 'Two, four, six, eight, we don't want to integrate'." She said the crowd tossed eggs and tomatoes at them and even followed them home. "And when they followed us home, they started pitching bottles and things." The families of many of the white students subsequently pulled their children out of the school. Lucille said she and her family lived under armed

guard from federal marshals for the whole school year. According to the National Women's History Museum, Ruby's father, Abon, was reluctant to have her attend an all-white school — it was Lucille who insisted. "I wanted it better for my kids than it was for us, so that my kids could go to school and learn," Lucille explained in the interview. The museum says the Bridges suffered for Ruby's right to attend the school: her father lost his job, local grocery stores refused to sell to Lucille, and Ruby's grandparents were evicted from the farm where they had

Rafer Johnson, Olympic gold medalist who nabbed RFK killer, dead at 86 Rafer Johnson, who won the decathlon at the 1960 Rome Olympics and helped subdue Robert F. Kennedy’s assassin in 1968, died Wednesday, Decmeber 2, 2020. He was 86. He died at his home in the Sherman Oaks section of Los Angeles, according to family friend Michael Roth. No cause of death was announced. Johnson was among the world’s greatest athletes from 1955 through his Olympic triumph in 1960, winning a national decathlon championship in 1956 and a silver medal at the Melbourne Olympics that same year. His Olympic career included carrying the U.S. flag at the 1960 Games and lighting the torch at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum to open the 1984 Games. Johnson set world records in the decathlon three times amid a fierce rivalry with his UCLA teammate C.K. Yang of Taiwan and Vasily Kuznetsov of the former Soviet Union. Johnson won a gold medal at the Pan American Games in 1955 while competing in just his fourth decathlon. At a welcome home meet afterward in Kingsburg, California, he set his first world record, breaking the mark of two-time Olympic champion and his childhood hero Bob Mathias. On June 5, 1968, Johnson was working on Kennedy’s presidential campaign when the Democratic candidate was shot in the kitchen of www.milwaukeetimesnews.com

the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles. Johnson joined former NFL star Rosey Grier and journalist George Plimpton in apprehending Sirhan Sirhan moments after he shot Kennedy, who died the next day. “I knew he did everything he could to take care of Uncle Bobby at his most vulnerable moment,” Kennedy’s niece, Maria Shriver, said by phone. “His devotion to Uncle Bobby was pure and real. He had protected his friend. Even after Uncle Bobby’s death, he stayed close.” Johnson later called the assassination “one of the most devastating moments in my life.” Born Rafer Lewis Johnson on Aug. 18, 1934, in Hillsboro, Texas, he moved to California in 1945 with his family, including his brother Jim, a future NFL Hall of Fame inductee. Although some sources cite Johnson’s birth year as 1935, the family has said that is incorrect. They eventually settled in Kingsburg, near Fresno

in the San Joaquin Valley. It was less than 25 miles from Tulare, the hometown of Mathias, who would win the decathlon at the 1948 and 1952 Olympics and prove an early inspiration to Johnson. Johnson was a standout student and played football, basketball, baseball and track and field at Kingsburg Joint Union High. At 6-foot-3 and 200-plus pounds, he looked more like a linebacker than a track and field athlete. During his junior year of high school, Johnson’s coach took him to Tulare to watch Mathias compete in a decathlon, an experience Johnson later said spurred him to take up the grueling 10-event sport. As a freshman at UCLA, where he received academic and athletic scholarships, Johnson won gold at the the 1955 Pan Am Games, and set a world record of 7,985 points. After winning the national decathlon championship in 1956, Johnson was the favorite for the Olympics in Mel-

bourne, but pulled a stomach muscle and strained a knee while training. He was forced to withdraw from the long jump, for which he had also qualified, but tried to gut out the decathlon. Johnson’s teammate Milt Campbell, a virtual unknown, gave the performance of his life, finishing with 7,937 points to win gold, 350 ahead of Johnson. It was the last time Johnson would ever come in second. Johnson, Yang, and Kuznetzov had their way with the record books between the 1956 and 1960 Olympics. Kuznetzov, a two-time Olympic bronze medalist who the Soviets called their “man of steel,” broke Johnson’s world record in May 1958 with 8,016 points. Later that year at a U.S.-Soviet dual meet in Moscow, Johnson beat Kuznetzov by 405 points and reclaimed the world record with 8,302 points. Johnson won over the Soviet audience with his gutsy performance in front of what had been a hostile crowd. A car accident and subsequent back injury kept Johnson out of competition during 1959, but he was healthy again for the Olympics in 1960. Yang was his primary competition in Rome. Yang won six of the first nine events, but Johnson led by 66 points going into the 1,500 meters, the decathlon’s final event. Johnson had to finish with-

in 10 seconds of Yang, which was no small feat as Yang was much stronger running at distance than Johnson. Johnson finished just 1.2 seconds and six yards behind Yang to win the gold. Yang earned silver and Kuznetsov took bronze. At UCLA, Johnson played basketball for coach John Wooden, becoming a starter on the 1958-59 team. In 1958, he was elected student body president, the third Black to hold the office in school history. “He stood for what he believed in and he did it in a very classy way with grace and dignity,” Olympic champion swimmer Janet Evans said by phone. Evans last saw Johnson, who attended her 2004 wedding, at a luncheon in his honor in May 2019. “We were all there to fete him and he just didn’t want to be in the spotlight,” she said. “That was one of the things I loved about him. He didn’t want credit.” Johnson retired from competition after the Rome Olympics. He began acting in movies, including appearances in “Wild in the Country” with Elvis Presley, “None But the Brave” with Frank Sinatra and the 1989 James Bond film “License to Kill.” He worked briefly as a TV sportscaster before becoming a vice president at Continental Telephone in 1971.

Above all, it was her faith that helped her survive the ups and downs of her life and the challenges of this world. Jesus was her rock in a weary land. For many years the family attended and, for a season, were actively involved at Calvary Baptist Church. Later in life, when it became difficult to church, she continued resource for those who cried attend to tithe and receive teachings for justice for Blacks in Mil- from local churches such as waukee. She also supported New Creation Church, New her husband during his ten- Testament Church, ure as local president of the Church of God andNorthside others. NAACP.

Milwaukee in the 1950s. Being an eloquent speaker, her friends would often refer to her as the “Oprah Winfrey” of her day. Any social gathering became more interesting once she became a part of it. She enjoyed Black Gospel, contemporary Christian music and the Motown sound (especially Smokey Robinson!!). She had her opinions, and she loved a spirited discussion. She made the most of her life and, although she did not get to fulfill the earthly dreams she had for herself, she never stopped caring for her family.

She attended our youth events such as basketball games, piano recitals, college musicals, graduations and other events. She cheered us on along the way. When she could, she enjoyed reading good books and newspapers (not a huge believer in the online versions since she felt they left some things out), would attend summer festivals and other musical outings. She loved spending an August afternoon with some of her high school friends at an event called Walnut Street Days, where they would gather and reminisce about the adventures they engaged in while young growing up in

Gloria Ann Malone made her transition on November 26, 2020. She was 84 years old and lived most of her life in Milwaukee. She was predeceased by her husband, Thomas D. Malone, who died on July 19. 2017. She will be sorely missed by her family and friends. She will never be forgotten and will live on in the lives of her children, Thomas Jr. (Deborah), Calvin (Mary), Sandra, Kathryn, Terrance (Connie) and Jack, along with a host of grandchildren (Eliot, Erin, Glenna, Thomas, Nora, DeAndre, Calvin, Angela, Devon, Cameron and Allen), great grandchildren and friends.

She worked just as hard at home as at the office; she raised six kids in the inner city of Milwaukee and, later on, the Malones became one of the first black families to integrate the suburbs of Brown Deer and Fox Point. She instilled within her children the need to become educated beyond high school, the way her and my father had done. Although they obtained real estate licenses and not college degrees, they always made it clear that education was one of the components to making a successful life. It is in part because of her influence that amongst her children there are bachelors, masters and law

Gloria Ann Wilson (Nee Malone) was born on November 30, 1935 in Memphis, Tennessee to Fannie and Jack Wilson, Sr. She grew up as the only girl amongst four brothers, Milton, James (Buzzy), Charles (The Dap) and Jack Wilson, Jr. They protected their sister during their childhood, but she helped take care of them later in life as the last surviving member of the immediate family. Eventually, the family migrated from the south to the north. They came to Milwaukee, Wisconsin seeking a better opportunity where Gloria blossomed as a student throughout her formal education. As a teen she also found time to socialize with a group of teens called the “Lords and Ladies.” They attended movies, sitting in the upper balconies where Blacks had to sit during those days, and enjoyed times at Milwaukee’s lakefront. It was also during this time as a young teen, she met her future husband, Thomas Malone, who had transferred to her high school. She loved to tell the story of how one of their early meetings was at a local restaurant when her girlfriends, who had finished their meal, were in

need of a ride home. There sat Thomas eating a burger and a malt by himself; outside was his father’s shiny Cadillac. She asked him for a ride on behalf of herself and her girlfriends, and as they say, the rest was history. Gloria and Thomas were married on September 4, 1954, and worked hard to support themselves and their growing family. She gave birth to seven children, six of whom survived. During this time, she had the opportunity to become the first African American female to be employed by Wisconsin Bell as a telephone operator. Later on, she and Thomas helped start Malone’s Realty, a dream that came to fruition during the post civil rights era in the 1970s. It not only allowed them to support themselves and their children, it allowed them to employ others within the community who had a dream of becoming entrepreneurs and, provided affordable and quality housing within the black community. Whether it was young single mothers, seniors on a fixed income, or families who could not find quality housing elsewhere, Malone’s Realty was a fixture in the inner city of Milwaukee. It provided a source of inspiration and a needed

2020 has been a wild year and this holiday season proves to be like no other, as the country is in the grasp of the coronavirus pandemic. People are becoming ill and our hospitals are filling up with COVID-19 patients this is not a hoax. As holiday celebrations begin, it’s important to remember the best way to prevent the spread is to avoid gatherings with those outside your household or hold virtual celebrations. We know this is especially tough now because it’s the time of year that we look forward to each other’s company and being together!

Coronavirus vaccine coming soon! Can you get one? Have you been waiting patiently for a vaccine to put an end to your coronavirus worries? Good news: your answer may be right around the corner! Well…maybe. Federal government officials have announced that some coronavirus vaccines may be available before Christmas. The optimism is spreading as many states are preparing to start the vaccination process in December. Unfortunately, everyone may not be eligible to receive vaccination as soon as it hits the market. It all depends on the availability and approval of vaccines, the speed at which it is produced and disseminated, and who is given access first. Healthcare workers may be first in line to get immunized against the virus, but the general population may still have to wait a few months into 2021 before taking action – especially those healthy children and adults who are not a member of the elderly population. What happens in December? There’s a chance that those most vulnerable to the ill effects of the pandemic, healthcare workers and nursing home residents, may be eligible for vaccination in December. The big day for these decisions is Tuesday, December 1. That’s when the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Advisory Committee for Immunization Practices gathered to vote on who should get access to the vaccination first. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has a meeting on the calendar for December 10 and December 17 to authorize a vaccine. The Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee, an independent group of experts, plan to discuss emergency use authorization for the Pfizer, BioNTech, and Moderna

vaccines. The FDA will use these discussions and recommendations to guide their decision on the vaccines. There’s another option on the table. The FDA could provide emergency use authorization as soon as the second week of December for Pfizer’s vaccine. Then, the Operation Warp Speed partnership initiated by the government can come in and start delivering vaccinations within 24 hours after that. Moderna may potentially be next on the list if that happens. Pfizer and Moderna could have 40 million doses available for the US market by the end of December, providing the potential to fully vaccinate 20 million people. If all does not go as planned in December, you can expect the conversations to accelerate in January as more vaccines become available to a wider range of people. What are the costs in-

volved? You need to know, there is no need to come out of pocket to foot the bill for a coronavirus vaccine. It may all be free thanks to the money the federal government has given to companies who have the ability to develop coronavirus vaccines. Pfizer, Novavax, Moderna, and AstraZeneca are all pharmaceutical and biotech companies that received more than $7 billion to solve the problem. Where can you get the vaccine? Hospitals, nursing homes, and long-term care facilities are already setup to deliver vaccines. Workers and residents at these locations will have access to the vaccine through their workplaces.

If you’re the average person, you’ll be able to access the vaccine at places where flu shots are normally given. Check out your grocery store pharmacy and physician’s office for more details. What should you know now? As more details about vaccines start to unfold, you should be aware of the possibilities and limitations ahead. As of now, Pfizer and Moderna vaccines may be the popular choices because of their immunization innovation known as mRNA vaccine. They are considered safe and provides 95 percent protection against symptomatic disease. But no one knows if the vaccinations will stop the spread of the disease to others and how long the protection will last.

used. While Moderna and Pfizer’s vaccination safety levels are based on the fact that they only use a piece of genetic material instead of a whole virus, AstraZeneca’s and Johnson & Johnson’s vaccine uses a replicate deficient virus to distribute a piece of genetic material from the coronavirus. Safety information is not available for those vaccines to date. While you wait on the coronavirus vaccination solution, make sure you do whatever it takes to build your immune system. This can impact the vaccination you receive and when you are able to receive it.

A flu vaccine is more important than ever Wisconsin’s flu season may already have started, but that does not mean it is too late to get a flu vaccine. While health care professionals recommend getting an annual flu vaccine, it is critical this season in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. Getting the vaccine is one of the most important steps you can take to protect yourself, the people you love, and people around you. The flu is preventable. Every year, Community Care makes a special effort to promote vaccines to its members and their family members. The vaccine is especially important to seniors and individuals with preexisting medical conditions. This fall, Community Care collaborated with local Walgreens to address the need for safe access to flu and other vaccinations, in the wake of COVID-19. After discussing with several of its providers, Community Care staff learned that the most common barrier to providers and members getting vaccinated this flu season was safe access to vaccines. Community Care offered seven outdoor vaccination

clinics for providers, members, and members’ families, and administered about 270 vaccines, including flu, pneumonia, and shingles. “The outdoor clinics eliminated the need for members – and others who are highly vulnerable to negative outcomes from COVID-19 infection – to avoid doctor’s offices and other indoor clinic locations,” said Theresa Baker, Community Care’s director of quality. For more than 40 years, Community Care has helped its members, including vulnerable seniors, live independently within the com-

If you did not get a flu vaccine yet, Wisconsin health officials suggest you get one as soon as possible. “Both influenza and COVID-19 are respiratory illnesses, but until we have a vaccine against COVID-19, the way to help prevent these two viruses from circulating at the same time is to get your flu vaccine now,” said Andrea Palm, department of health services secretary. At a glance Why should I get the flu vaccine? The flu is a serious illness that can make you extremely munity. This includes efforts sick. It can lead to hospitalto help as many of our mem- ization, or even to death. The bers as possible get import- best way to protect yourself ant vaccines every year. and others from the flu is to In addition to getting a flu vaccine, there are a number of steps you can take to reduce your chances of getting sick from the flu: avoid close contact with people who are sick, wash your hands often, and avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth. Last flu season more than half of Wisconsin residents did not get a flu vaccine. This put many people at a higher risk of getting the flu. More than 180 people died from the flu during the last flu season.

get the flu vaccine every year in the fall. Who is at higher risk of having serious complications due to the flu? It is very important for people 65 and older and people with chronic health conditions, such as asthma or heart disease, to get vaccinated every year to decrease their risk of severe flu illness. When is the best time to get the flu vaccine? Get the flu vaccine before flu begins spreading in your community. You should get a flu vaccine by the end of October. However, getting vaccinated throughout the flu season can still be helpful, even into January or later.

Rafer Johnson passes (Continued from pg. 3) In 1984 Johnson lit the Olympic flame for the Los Angeles Games. He took the torch from Gina Hemphill, granddaughter of Olympic great Jesse Owens, who ran it into the Coliseum. “Standing there and looking out, I remember thinking ‘I wish I had a camera',” Johnson said. “My hair was standing straight up on my arm. Words really seem inadequate.” Throughout his life, Johnson was widely known for his humanitarian efforts. He served on the organizing committee of the first Special Olympics in Chicago in 1968, working with founder Eunice Kennedy Shriver. Johnson founded California Special Olympics the following year at a time when positive role models for the intellectually and physically disabled were rare. “Rafer really paved the path for many of us to understand the responsibilities that come with being a suc-
