Milwaukee celebrates the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Milwaukee has the distinction of being the only major city in the United States, other than Atlanta, GA, that has an official observance of the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., holiday every year. This year, it fell on Monday, January 21, 2013, and there were celebrations and programs throughout the city to commemorate the life, accomplishments and legacy of this great African American. St. Mark AME Church (photo at right) noted the occasion with their 31st annual observance, “The Call to Make a Difference,” by honoring several Milwaukeeans who have used their career and personal endeavors to positively affect the lives of others. Those honored included (from left) retired fire chief Michael L. Jones; Voces de la Frontera executive director Christine Neumann-Ortiz; Blood Center of Wisconsin community outreach manager Penelope Stewart; African American Chamber of Commerce president Dr. Eve Hall; retired judge and civil rights activist Vel Phillips; St. Mark executive assistant Shirley Smith; and Milwaukee Police Capt. Terrence Gordon. Also pictured are St. Mark pastor Rev. Darryl R. Williams; broadcast personality and guest speaker Joanne Williams; St. Mark first lady Laurelyn Williams and Warren Jackson, chairperson. The Wisconsin African American Women’s Center held its 12th Annual King Fest – A Service of Celebration and Remembrance, focusing on the theme, “We Are The Dream.” In addition to local dignitaries and performers, the program featured remarks by nationally renowned author, educator and social justice advocate Dr. Iva Carruthers. Scholarships were also presented to three young people from the community, who excelled in writing competition on Dr. King’s legacy. Pictured at the event are (from left) King Fest founder and event coordinator Janette Herrera; scholarship winners Courtney Lawson, Marquisa Wince, Xavier Jenkins; and guest speaker Dr. Iva Carruthers. At the Martin Luther King, Jr., Community Center on West Vliet Street, the Milwaukee County Parks presented their program, “Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.: A Pastor to All, Spreading Peace to the Nation.” Their line-up included the Daughters of Destiny Praise Dancers (pictured at right), as well as a variety of singers, spoken word artists, instrumentalists, ministers, and other community leaders.

Congratulations to all the Dr. MLK Day events, on a job well done!

Innocent until proven guilty

As a member of the legislative branch of city government, I respect the other branches of government, and I would certainly hope that my Council colleagues would also share that same collegial respect. We must always be mindful that the executive and judicial branches have important functions and roles to play. But many politicians, which I am one, seem to forget the due process aspect of the judicial branch of government (which has the famous term that we all know: “Innocent until PROVEN guilty”) which includes the law enforcement investigation in any criminal case. But time and time again, we (politicians) are willing to weigh in with our two-bit solutions and idiotic opinions before the facts are presented by the District Attorney based upon

Rep. Young to introduce legislation that converts Wisconsin State Legislature to part-time status On Thursday, January 17, 2013, Rep. Leon D. Young (D-Milwaukee) expressed his intent to introduce an Assembly Joint Resolution to amend the state Constitution that would convert the Wisconsin State Legislature from a full-time to part-time legislative body. According to a document compiled by the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL), state legislatures throughout our nation can be divided into three categories: red, white or blue. The Wisconsin legislature is considered “red,” which indicates that legislators usually work at least 80 percent or more of a full-time job. White legislatures typically spend approximately twothirds or more of a full-time job being a legislator, while blue legislatures spend about half their time on the job. 

Rep. Leon D. Young (D-Milwaukee) Rep. Young explanied: “After reviewing the number of days that we were in session during the course of the 2011-12 biennium, I realized that we met a total of only 34 days out of a possible 122 session days. This means that

What’s next for Barack Obama

Barack Obama starts his final four years as President of the United States. Many African Americans have gained a vital sense of pride from Obama’s election. Obama seemed to resurrect the nonexistent image of the African American male. The election of Obama was the pinnacle of African American achievement. Now the question for African Americans is: what’s next? African Americans glowed in the election and re-election of Obama for President. To many Obama being President was the culmination of every Civil Rights marcher's dream. African Americans finally had one of their own in the Oval Office. The Obamas quickly became the model for many African American families. The reelection of Obama solidified African American achievement in the USA. Where do African Americans go from here? What mountains are left for African Americans to climb in America? Are there any boundaries left for African Americans to cross?

What lines are left for African Americans to erase? As far as accomplishments in America, African Americans have achieved every logical goal possible. At one time African Americans couldn’t vote in America. Today African Americans exercise this right whenever they want. The last two Presidential elections showed African American voting power. African Americans now choose to vote in every election possible from City Council to Senate. More African Americans are taking an interest in politics because of the voting craze. Over 40 years ago African Americans gained the right to live in any neighborhood they wanted. In every city in America African Americans have taken root. There is no such thing as a suburb that African Americans can’t live in. African Americans have accomplished the goal of integrated communities. Even in the sports world there are no barriers to overcome. Just a scant 15 years ago a black quarterback was an oddity in the NFL. In

the last two NFL drafts an African American quarterback was selected in the top two picks. There are African American coaches and upper management in the NFL. African Americans already dominated the NBA on the court, now there are black team owners. African Americans are on every level of the workforce. There are African American policemen as well as police chiefs. Many major companies have blacks in key positions from managers to CEO. There are not a lot of African American businesses

whole. The old goals of integration, voting and political power have been achieved. African Americans need to find something that can keep the younger generations focused on a goal. The average African American youth cares nothing for the past. The African American youth has been born in a time when all the obstacles African Americans faced in the past are gone. There have to be new goals, new objectives for the African American youth. In 2013 but the potential is there. and beyond no longer can In the entertainment world African Americans fall back African Americans have on singing We Shall Overcome. made great strides.

Rebuilding our Community Whose picture is it anyway? By Dr. Andrew Calhoun, Ed.D. “A picture is worth a thousand words,” but how important is the frame that holds that portrait, painting or photo? The focus of every framed picture is the picture itself… it is the image captured, it is the reflection of the artist or photographer in what they saw, their vision, their passion, as well as a snapshot in time. Each picture has its own story, purpose and in essence reveals a particular point of view. The point of view revealed may not be the same as those who look at the picture for the first time. What each viewer sees may be quite different from what others see. In addition, and in some showings, viewers wants to know a little about the background of the artist, the meaning behind the picture and its frame. Frames The frame in which a picture is placed is often forgotten about as it relates to determining the overall value of the picture. In real

terms, the frame is used to help to display the picture on a stand, shelf, hung on a wall or placed on a desk. The frame helps to not only define the picture, but also conveys a message itself. The selection of the right frame for any picture is critical in order to see it in the right light. The frame can make or break the picture. The right frame on a good or average picture can bring out the best and increase its value. On the other hand, the wrong frame, regardless of the quality of the picture can be disastrous and project the wrong image.

There would be no Obama without King By Solomon Jones As I read King’s brilliant argument for direct action against injustice, I saw more than a man who lives only in old footage. I saw a father fighting for a better future for his children. I saw a man who was not willing to wait for change. I saw myself. It’s fitting that President Obama’s inauguration arrives the day of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, because there would be no Obama without King. We often say such things in the trite, dutiful manner in which people speak about historical figures, but in this case it happens to be true. Obama owes King a debt of gratitude for paving the way for all Americans to vote. Obama also owes thanks to Philadelphia, because we exercised that right in staggering numbers. I look at our city as our president is preparing to be sworn in for a second term, and the future seems close enough to touch. It’s a future that was carved out by Philadelphians who voted for Obama in such numbers that in 59 Philadelphia voting divisions, Republican Mitt Romney received 0 votes.

Since Philadelphia was the key to delivering the crucial state of Pennsylvania to the president, one might say that our city has shaped America’s future. It’s a future that I hope will be better for my children because of Philadelphia’s resolve. That’s what the future’s all about, after all—our children. But as a parent it’s easy to get caught up in the future and forget about the past. I don’t want to forget, though. That’s why I decided to take a look at the life and work of the man who is the proverbial parent of the movement that made Obama possible. I decided to take a look back at Martin Luther King, Jr. For people like me who were born towards the end of King’s life, King is an ethereal figure; a ghost hovering somewhere above a past

we can’t remember. He is the man who had a dream that lives on in black and white footage. He is a historical figure who we respect, although we don’t quite know why. He is a lesson to memorize, a figure to revere, a piece of a segregated past that we never experienced for ourselves. I don’t want to remember him that way, so one night this week, after my family had gone to bed, I sat alone at my kitchen table and read “Letter From a Birmingham Jail.” King wrote that letter to a group of clergymen who had criticized him for marching to protest the treatment of African Americans in Birmingham, AL. King and his followers were jailed after the march. It was then that he wrote the letter.

The quality of the frame depends on the owner of the picture and their desire to display it for a unique space in an office, at work or at home. Frames come in all kinds of shapes, sizes, colors,

and designs and can be made of wood, metals or plastics. They come in standardize dimensions, angles and styles and can be bought at a number of retail stores. However, and if one can afford it, a

frame can be customized. Framing it up One of the most important things in life is to understand how “you see things”… the frame and the (Continued on pg. 8)

The Counseling Corner

By Rev. Judith T. Lester, B.Min. M.Th

Setting limits and boundaries (Conclusion) My daughter is a psychology major at DePaul University and she indicated there is a principle in psychology that what we hate most about other people’s behavior is what we actually hate most about ourselves. By acknowledging how we cross others’ boundaries, we may come to understand how we have inadvertently given others the standards with which they’ve come to treat us. This month we have been discussing boundaries. If you are having a hard time setting boundaries, Coral Levang has been an excellent resource for us this month. From her piece “How to Set Boundaries With Family and Friends” she posits the best solution is to learn how to set clear, healthy boundaries in your relationships with others. It is a process which needs to be followed without guilt. You must make the choice to set boundaries. How? 1. Decide what the boundaries will be. Look at the big picture, and be objective about what you can or cannot do or give. This can

No Obama without King (Continued from pg. 4) “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere,” King wrote in one of the more familiar passages. “We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly. Never again can we afford to live with the narrow, provincial ‘outside agitator’ idea. Anyone who lives inside the United States can never be considered an outsider anywhere within its bounds.” As I read King’s brilliant argument for direct action against injustice, I saw more than a man who lives only in old footage. I saw a father fighting for a better future for his children. I saw a man who was not willing to wait for change. I saw myself. King wrote of seeing “the vast majority of … twenty million Negro brothers smothering in an airtight cage of poverty in the midst of an affluent society.” When I read that I saw Philadelphia, a place where 28 percent of the population—many of them African American—

include money, things, your time, or even your emotional well-being. It is important to try to remain on the sidelines emotionally and do what you want to do without trying to accept the burden for the entire problem. You have offered to assist someone. You are not offering a way to avoid the problems at-hand. 2. Clearly define and communicate the doundaries. In the hypothetical presented last week regarding your brother, you might say, “I will loan you $100.00 to help you pay for your groceries this month. I expect that you will pay it back to me when you receive your paycheck next week and before you can borrow more money.” 3. Follow through with the boundaries you have set. As difficult as it may be, remember that you are only responsible to yourself for the boundaries you are setting. You are also responsible for following through with what you do. You may not be taken seriously the first few times you attempt it. You will likely be met with resistance from the other person.

live in poverty while surrounded by wealth. King went on to write of tears welling up in his six year old daughter’s eyes as he explained to her that she couldn’t go to the amusement park because of segregation. He wrote of the concerns that any husband and father would have for his family, and at that moment I saw King for who he truly was—a man. I won’t be volunteering on King Day. Instead I’ll take time to reflect quietly on the man who sat in jail rather than sit in oppression; who took blows rather than taking vengeance; who preached love instead of practicing hate; who gave his life so I could write of his memory. I will think of King’s sacrifice, and on Tuesday, when King Day is over and the inauguration is behind us, I’ll think of the blacks who couldn’t vote in Birmingham. I’ll think of the blacks who voted in record numbers in Philadelphia. I’ll think of how far we still have to go, and I’ll look to the heavens and thank God. Then I’ll thank a long-gone father named Martin Luther King Jr., who fought to make things better for his children.

Going back to the hypothetical, if your brother pays you half of the $100.00 you have loaned him and asks for more money for groceries, you say “no.” He starts to raise his voice and says, “But I’m your brother. We’re family and family takes care of one another.” Don’t react to the manipulative words. You follow through because you care enough to want your brother to be independent of others. Family status does not mean someone has the right to lay a guilt trip on you

when you lay down boundaries. When you begin to be more assertive and set boundaries with others who are unaccustomed to you doing so, you will likely feel guilty. Others will certainly overreact to this new behavior from you. They may get angry, reject you, and refuse to communicate with you. It can come with weeks, months, or even years of non-communication. But by setting boundaries, you are learning how to love yourself and your friends and fam-

ily members differently than you may have in the past. As you learn to separate yourself from unhealthy patterns of behavior, you are taking responsibility for your own decisions and choices. It will take some time to get over the feelings of guilt, anxiety, and the stress of doing things differently. Don’t allow yourself to buy into the manipulation volley of the past. Beloved, the bottom line is boundary setting is hard work. But once you begin to build healthier relationships with the people in your life you will get better with practice and have a healthier respect for yourself and others. The writer does not assume responsibility in any way for readers’ efforts to apply or utilize information or recommendations made in these articles, as they may not be necessarily appropriate for every situation to which they may refer.

Whose picture is it anyway? picture it holds. Regardless of what others see, the frame is what and how you see things in its context, can and will change one’s life, their family, others and even the world around them. Seeing a picture through the right frame always help to determine… its value, its impact and its future… and that changes everything. If you live in a “bubble” and work in a “silo,” the picture of a particular community, its culture, its beliefs systems, its religion, its values and the people who live there can be very wrong if not seen through the right frame and light. People, who live in any given community, always want others to see their community in the right frame and light, and with the right perspective. It is seeing things in the detail… for in the details there are little things that can make the difference between success and failure…even when we don’t think it matters… It matters the most. People in the community want to trust those who are making decisions about their community… those who understand them and have their best interest in mind… to help improve the quality of their lives and the neighborhood… for turning things around in any community is a team effort. Look through the right frame and you can better understand the picture you see.

June 23 – July 14, 2013

Senator Nikiya Harris (DMilwaukee) released the following statement on January 23, 2013 regarding the 40th anniversary of the Roe vs. Wade Supreme Court decision: “Today, on the 40th anniversary of Roe vs. Wade, I applaud the doctors, nurses, and health professionals who put their safety on the line everyday as they provide support and healthcare during a very difficult and challenging time in their patients’ lives. “Nobody, no matter where they fall on the political spectrum, wants a woman to have to get an abortion. But when we know that comprehensive age-appropriate sex education and affordable contraception reduce pregnancy rates, it is reprehensible and counterproductive to deny access and increase barriers to them. “Personal health and family planning are very private issues that each woman must decide for herself. It is a woman’s right, not a crime, to think of her own health or her family’s financial situation when faced with an unplanned pregnancy. Weighing the options is a complex process and women do not take it lightly; to suggest they do is degrading and a disservice to all women. “I am proud to support a woman’s right to choose the best decision for her health, her economic security, and her family.”

Education

Community Column A few examples of outstanding UWM graduates By Michael R. Lovell Chancellor, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Graduation days at the University of WisconsinMilwaukee are big deals, and our commencement on Dec. 16, 2012, was no exception. More than 2,200 students were eligible to participate in our ceremony. Combine those individuals with those who graduated earlier in 2012, and there were more than 5,400 students who earned their degrees last year from UWM. While those are some pretty large numbers, the reality is that the individual stories of our students are the most remarkable. I’d like to tell you about three graduates from December. In each instance, it’s clear that support networks – often those formally offered by our university or other area institutions – had a great deal to do with their successes.

Cheng Thao arrived in the United States at the age of 14 with the equivalency of a third-grade education. He had been born in Laos, but his family left as refugees to Thailand in 1980. They spent nine years in a refugee camp. He said high school was a struggle, but he was supported through his participation in Upward Bound, a precollege academic achievement program, and English as a Second Language programs. Both of these programs are offered by UWM. Cheng said his hard work has had many benefits, and he has served as an example to his brothers and sisters, who are all attending college, too. Cheng received his academic diploma and hood for his doctoral degree from our College of Engineering & Applied Science. Paula Lee graduated from our School of Education after attending UWM part time and working full time for the

past 15 years. She’s a single mom of four who says she’s very grateful that our professors were so flexible, occasionally allowing her children to join her in class and once permitting her baby son to sit in the classroom in a car seat next to her while she took an exam. The third student I want to tell you about is Peter Armstrong. The first week of January 2010 was a bad one for Peter. First he suffered a severe knee injury that would require major surgery. Two days later, he was laid off from his district manager position. With these life-altering challenges in front of him, he chose to return to college. As a single parent with two children, he said he gained assistance from Pell Grants and social welfare programs that included the UWM Life Impact Program. Life Impact includes a significant scholarship plus academic, profes-

sional and personal support. Without this help, he says he could not have graduated from our College of Letters & Science with a bachelor’s degree in geography. Cheng, Paula and Peter are just a few examples of the special individuals who graduate from the University of

Music Club to hold scholarship auditions The MacDowell Club of Milwaukee announces scholarship auditions for students of classical music.
