Bro. Muhammad: ‘Respect our women’

Staff Photo

William Muhammad Muhammad Mosque #3 By: Raina J. Johnson Special to the Milwaukee Times We’ve all read about it, seen it on the news: the tragic, heartbreaking end to domestic abuse or any other type of violence against women. No one demographic, race, educational level, financial status or otherwise is exempt from this type of violence. After these events occur, some may think to themselves 'what could I have done?' Or perhaps, some feel like they have done all they can, or don’t need to be bothered with it, because it’s “not their problem, or happening in their neighborhood.” On April 13, 2013, Brother William Muhammad of Mosque #3, made an impassioned speech at the Parklawn YMCA about black men protecting their women instead of the opposite or being a bystander. “If a man has to beat the woman, he doesn’t need a

woman. That means we need to learn how to control our women, - not with fists – but with wisdom. But why do you have to control our women? Because how can you protect what you don’t control? If you have children outside, you say, ‘I want you right in the front yard, stay where I can see you,’ why do you tell them that? Because you’re concerned about their protection, if you turn your back – they’re gone, ” Brother Muhammad explained. “Control is not 'you do what I say, woman!' That’s abuse,” he added. Brother Muhammad also discussed how collectively as men, when things happen to women, it affects all men; he later called for solutions and brainstormed ideas to inject some reality into the consciousness of the community and how women are valued. His speech also is aligned with the upcoming “Denim Day” on April 24, 2013. Since 1999, Denim Day was established to raise awareness around the misconceptions of sexual assault in this country and around the world. In the 1990’s a young Italian girl was raped by her driving instructor. He was arrested, charged and convicted in the case. He appealed the conviction and the case was taken to the Italian Supreme Court and his conviction was overturned with the Chief Judge arguing, ‘because the victim wore very, very, tight

Bombs kill three and injure 176 at the Boston Marathon President Obama and Mass. Gov. Patrick take center stage in what is being called a terrorist attack Two bombs exploded nearly simultaneously and approximately 100 yards apart during Monday’s Boston Marathon, killing three people and injuring 176, including 17 who were critically injured. Physicians amputated 10 individuals’ severely wounded limbs. One of the three persons killed by the bombs was an eight-year-old boy who was watching his father run the marathon. He was accompanied at the event by his mother and his sister, both of whom were injured in the bombings. Boston police said the bombs exploded at 2:50 p.m. near the marathon finish line in Copley Square. A third bomb exploded around 4:12 p.m. at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library in Boston’s Dorchester neighborhood, a location fifteen minutes away from the marathon

President Barack Obama site. The bombings forced police and other first responders to close the subway system, evacuate three hotels in the vicinity of the marathon and cancel for a time flights arriving at and departing from Boston’s Logan Field. The bombings also thrust President Barack Obama and Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick into the forefront during this national tragedy, which is being characterized as a terrorist attack. Following the bombings,

Celebrate Arbor Day at Boerner Botanical Gardens Get a tree for free and help make the world a more beautiful place

Boerner Botanical Gardens, 9400 Boerner Drive, Hales Corners, WI, welcomes visitors to celebrate Arbor Day with 3rd grade students from Longfellow Elementary School and local dignitaries on Friday, April 26, 2013, 10 a.m.–noon. Over 135 years ago, J. Sterling Morton founded Arbor Day, now celebrated internationally, with the simple idea of setting aside a special day for planting trees. Longfellow Elementary School students will take part in tree-focused activities. A Northern Glow maple (Acer pseudosieboldianum x palmatum) developed by Dr. Ed Hasselkus, a retired UWMadison professor, will be planted along with two other trees during the tree planting ceremony. Peggy GibbsZautke, BBG horticulturist, will lead a historical tree walk through the gardens. Oak saplings, donated by Living Lands & Waters Mil-

lion Trees Project in partnership with Milwaukee’s Argosy Foundation, will be available to visitors for free, while supplies last. The schedule of events is as follows: 10:05 a.m. Welcome and Introduction; 10:15 a.m. Tree Planting Ceremony, 10:45 a.m. “Trees and Me Program” with students, and 11 a.m.–noon “Trees through Time” walk led by Peggy Gibbs-Zautke. Boerner Botanical Gardens is part of the 1,000-acre arboretum envisioned by Alfred L. Boerner. The arboretum runs through the Gardens, Whitnall Park and the adjoining Root River Parkway. Trees are labeled and mapped so observers can learn to identify trees by their names and characteristics.

SDC welcomes new commissioners

Louisiana parish bans sagging pants By Krystal Crossman Fashion is an ever-changing industry. A style that is hot to wear one week may be old news the next. Some fashions, such as bellbottom jeans, even make a comeback years after they have gone out of style. One style that isn’t getting much support these days is sagging pants. Residents in some cities say that they are tired of getting unwanted views of another person’s underwear. An ordinance was passed by the Terrebonne, LA, Parish Council that prohibits people from wearing pants that fall below the waist in public. If individuals are caught wearing their pants this low, a $50 fine will be imposed for the first offense. After that, the person committing the fashion crime may have to do community service. The vote was 8-1 with council members. The ordinance will now go to Parish President Michel

Rep. Barnes co-authors redistricting reform legislation State Representative Mandela Barnes on Thursday, April 11, 2013 announced with his 13 fellow freshman democratic representatives a bill to reform the process of legislative boundary redistricting. Current law requires that the majority party in both the Assembly and Senate redraw district boundaries every ten years, taking place after the census. This proposal would

create a Redistricting Advisory Commission, and hand that power to the non-partisan Legislative Reference Bureau. “This is the perfect way to ensure that these lines are drawn out in the open, and in a non-partisan fashion.

Being Frank In Wisconsin residents have the right to carry concealed weapons. There have been over 100,000 concealed weapon permits issued to the peaceful residents of the Badger State. In Milwaukee they have a lawman that appears to be for armed vigilantism. This same lawman decries the legal system and judges who are soft on criminals. With the number of concealed weapon permits and a vigilante lawman Milwaukee has the potential to be the "Dodge City of the Midwest." The right to carry a concealed weapon has been a smash hit in Wisconsin. To many letting good citizens carry guns would nullify the advantage gun-toting criminals had. It was thought that by letting housewives and average Joe’s carry weapons crime would end. By having

two people shooting, instead of just one, crime would evaporate. Crime in Milwaukee still exists but many feel if more gun permits are issued crime could vanish. Low slung holsters and cowboy hats will soon be the rage of Water Street. In order to recreate the Wild West you need a gunman to serve as the law. Milwaukee has a lawman right out of 1865 Abilene, Texas. Sheriff David Clarke is a vocal proponent against crime. Clarke recently made waves when he encouraged citizens to take a gun safety course. Clarke wanted citizens to do this because 911 response times may be too long. Clarke ended the radio spot by telling the listeners he and they were partners. This was a modern day deputizing because even Matt Dillon needed Chester.

Clarke has been accused of calling for vigilantism. That’s not true; Clarke just believes in armed citizens. In Dodge City the majority of citizens carried firearms, so modern day Milwaukeeans should also. Clarke also believes there should be armed tactical forces in schools and other public places. Along with armed citizens a formed posse always ready would make Milwaukee safe. But you can’t have law without a few hanging judges. Clarke has openly attacked the Milwaukee criminal justice system. In Clarke’s eyes some judges are too soft on criminals. The Hanging Judge Isaac Parker is long dead, which means Clarke can’t call on him. Clarke has belittled judges and even revoked electronic monitoring privileges for criminal offenders. You have to assume

plagues all major cities? If you watch Gunsmoke, guns certainly weren’t the answer for Dodge City. Maybe firearm training and a 9mm Glock will do what the Colt 45 Peace Keeper couldn’t– end crime.

Battle over the budget

need it most. This includes providing effective relief for individuals and families who are working hard to make ends meet, while also making vital investments in public education, healthcare, public transportation, and other services that benefit all Wisconsinites. Unfortunately, Governor Walker and legislative Republicans have again chosen to reward the rich and well-connected. They appear dead-set on continuing to harm our public education by freezing spending on public schools – schools that suffered historic cuts in the last budget. Milwaukee Public Schools has already been forced to increase class sizes and cut art and music classes. Republicans also continue to deny access to affordable healthcare for hundreds of thousands of Wisconsin residents, as Gov. Walker’s budget will cut BadgerCare coverage for over 80,000 people.

one reason Clarke wants armed citizens is to hold court in the street. Clarke seems to have no faith in the justice system so a couple of necktie parties on Brady would end crime. Clarke isn’t the only person with his point of view. There are many Americans who seem to think guns would curb crime and violence in the United States. There are millions of people stockpiling weapons who don’t know why they are. Have guns cut down on crime in any country? Is having little old ladies packing Desert Eagles going to keep their purses from being snatched? Sam Colt began making guns over 150 years ago. How has the manufacture of guns affected the crime rate since the first revolver came off the line? What is the answer to the violence and crime that

Sandy's Standpoint Last week, the Wisconsin legislature’s Joint Finance Committee held its first public hearing on the proposed state budget. Instead of holding it in Milwaukee – where most of citizens affected by the new budget live – Republican leadership chose to hold it in the suburb of Greendale. With only three more hearings held by the Joint Finance Committee (the fewest number of budget hearings since 1985), it is clear that Republicans are choosing to ignore the Wisconsinites that will have to deal with the consequences of their budget choices every day. I believe that in order to create a budget for the people of Wisconsin, we need to hear directly from the families that will be impacted – both in the 10th Assembly District and throughout our state. In order for the voices of all Milwaukee residents to be heard, my colleagues and I will be facilitating a number of public hearings throughout the city. Our first budget hearing will take place on Saturday, April 20th from 11:00am until 2:00pm at the Milwaukee Public Schools Administration Building (5225 W. Vliet St.). The majority of Milwaukee residents want a state budget that takes a balanced approach to help people who

The Governor’s refusal to accept federal money, part of the Obama health reform, will seriously harm thousands of Wisconsinites. As a nurse, I know that the health of Milwaukee will be deeply affected by this unfortunate decision. We need to give our undivided attention and efforts to creating family-sustaining jobs, investing in worker training programs, supporting quality public education, increasing access to affordable healthcare, and provide targeted relief to individuals and families who need it most. This is a balanced approach that not only everyday Wisconsinites need and deserve, but our future generations depend upon. I look forward to fighting for these priorities and meeting with communities across Milwaukee in order to ensure your voices are heard loud and clear during the budget process. State Representative Sandy Pasch represents Wisconsin’s 10th Assembly District – which includes Milwaukee’s North Side and the Village of Shorewood – and serves as the Assistant Assembly Democratic Leader.

Coming the day after the 45th anniversary of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., the new unemployment numbers show that unemployment is still high and remains much higher for African Americans. One thing hasn't changed in the last half century: if you're a person of color, you're more likely to be unemployed. Even though the black unemployment rate fell by .05 percent this month, it still sits at nearly 13.3 percent, nearly double the overall rate. This is a dangerous trend. Recent studies - including one by the International Monetary Fund - show that countries with higher levels of economic inequality have slower growth rates, and that "economic inclusion corresponds with robust economic growth". Urban economies affect the prosperity of the entire surrounding region, and ultimately the country as a whole. As Dr. King asked in 1968, "What does it profit a man to be able to eat at an integrated lunch counter if he doesn't earn enough money to buy a hamburger and a cup of coffee?" In the last year of Dr. King's life, he was organizing the Poor People's Campaign. He endorsed the Freedom Budget, a document that called for massive investments in public works and infrastructure, job training and education programs, and a higher minimum wage. The Budget insisted that smart investments in our most

Benjamin Todd Jealous vulnerable citizens will spur economic growth. Unfortunately, this plan never moved forward. But its message proved prophetic, and Dr. King's economic agenda is still relevant today. In 1962 Dr. King said, "There are three major social evils in our world today: the evil of war, the evil of economic injustice, and the evil of racial injustice." Fifty years later, need to recognize that inaction is not a policy option; it has been tried; and it hasn't worked. Let's try something new. Let's recommit ourselves to Dr. King's economic principles and advance an economic agenda that bridges our nation's divides and fosters an economic recovery in which all can benefit.

Jackie Robinson: A hero for all time By Ruthe Latta Growing up in Chicago in the 1950s as the sister of two older brothers, sports was a big deal in our household. Both of my brothers played sports and they both saw themselves as budding superstars in the making. Back then, the sport of choice in our neighborhood was baseball, and one name was revered above all in baseball – that name was Jackie Robinson. Both of my brothers played in the local Jackie Robinson Little League. My oldest brother Reggie played second base, just as Jackie had. Middle brother Joseph fancied himself as Jackie Robinson personified as he rounded the bases at lightning speed in another attempt to steal home. I’m sure every young black male in our neighborhood who donned the uniform – and even those who didn’t – strived to see a bit of Jackie Robinson in themselves when they looked in the mirror. It wouldn’t be until we got older and experienced “the what and the why” of open housing marches, church bombings, and opposition to school desegregation that we kids came to understand what a powerful symbol Jackie Robinson was in our community. Sure, he could play baseball like nobody’s business. But Jackie Robinson symbolized way more than playing baseball; he stood even more for how you play the game of life. As black children in an America whose racial attitudes were slowly changing, our parents tried to shield us from the harsh realities of the inequities that we might face. Many of them had grown up in the segregated South and had come north in search of more opportunity and a better life. What they found was a world where the rules weren’t that different; the same game was just played out more subtly. Instead of legal, or de jure, inequities, they found de facto inequities, or those that were just enforced by unwritten and unspoken habit or custom. The accomplishments of Jackie Robinson on the baseball diamond were proof to our elders that things not only could change, but that they would change. But change would come with hard work and sacrifice.

Rebuilding our Community Jackie Robinson It must have been difficult for one man to bear the fortunes of an entire race of people on his shoulders. But Jackie Robinson bore up under the stress with dignity. The more he was snubbed by training camps and stadiums in Florida in the off-season, the more he let his expertise on the field be his response. The more he was taunted and jeered with racial epithets by teammates, opponents, spectators, and even managers with bigoted racial attitudes, the more these ignorant episodes seemed to spur Robinson on to still greater achievements. By the end of his rookie season with the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947 – six months after he became the first African American player in major league baseball since the 1880s – Jackie Robinson had proven his detractors wrong. He was named recipient of Major League Baseball’s inaugural Rookie of the Year Award in 1947. During the season, Robinson played in 151 games for the Dodgers. He racked up 175 hits, scored 125 runs, had a .297 batting average, and led the National League in stolen bases, with 29. During his 10 years as a Dodger, Robinson played in six World Series, and six consecutive All-Star Games (1949-1954); and in 1949, he became the first black player to win the National League Most Valuable Player Award. He also contributed to the Dodgers’ 1955 World Series win over the New York Yankees. Sports writer David Falkner christened Robinson, “the father of modern base-stealing.” Jackie Robinson retired from baseball prior to the 1957 season; but he continued his journey as a corporate trailblazer in business. He was the first black person to become a senior executive of a major American corporation, when he was named

Home is where the heart is

One the most wonderful feelings in the world comes when you buy a home, especially your first. There is nothing quite like it. For it can be a place in which to raise a family, build net worth, and to affirm your identity in the community. It fosters the idea of economic mobility and self-reliance. Whether you purchase an existing home or build a new one, the excitement of just knowing that this place is mine is “Awesome!” To be in your own place, a place in which you decide what goes in it, the furniture, drapes, pictures, paint, wallpaper, appliances, people who visit and by all means the neighborhood. In the eyes of many homeowners, you cannot put a price tag on their dreams, safety and future… for it’s their castle, high tower and oasis. And the real value of any home cannot be truly measured by the price paid or property assessment. Home ownership is one of the central themes of the American Dream. It’s one of those goals you set when planning for your future. It is to join the league of home owners among family, friends, coworkers and vice president of Chock Full o’ Nuts Corp. He was the first black television analyst in major league baseball when the ABC network hired him as a sports announcer in 1965. He helped establish Freedom National Bank, a black-owned financial institution based in Harlem, NY, serving as its chairman. And in 1962, his first year of eligibility, Jackie Robinson was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame, the first black player to be inducted into Cooperstown. On June 4, 1972, the Dodgers (by then based in Los Angeles) (Conttinued on pg. 5)

neighbors. The process of owning a home can be an ordeal, which includes the realtor, lender, seller, builder, forms, credit check, taxes, fees, mortgage, insurance, title, and let’s not forget the new neighbors. And remember, not everyone has been able to achieve this part of the dream, due in part to a lack of knowledge, affordability, reasonable down payment, a livable wage job, low credit rating as well as some questionable lending practices over the decades within the housing industry itself. However, owning a home to live in is truly a blessing and should not be taken light-

ly. It has always been something to strive for, something worthwhile to live for and certainly something to work hard to maintain. In the movie the "Wizard of Oz," (1939), Dorothy Gale, played by Judy Garland makes this statement while clicking her ruby red slippers together three times… “There is no place like home.” The question is…“Are we there yet?” For feedback you can contact Dr. Calhoun at email:, Facebook, twitter: AC53, or 414-571-5015.

How to study the Bible: Christian journaling (Week 3) Studying in a small group Bible study is beneficial in many ways. Studying the Bible alone is good for your personal devotional time; however, joining a small group bible study can greatly enhance your Bible study. Inquire as to whether your church offers small group Bible study and connect with one that is of interest to you. Small group Bible study offers certain benefits. Compliments of, presented here will be three benefits to joining and studying in a small group Bible study: Fellowship with other believers. One of the best things about being part of a small group Bible study is having the opportunity to meet on a regular basis with an intimate group of other believers. While attending church and church wide events is a great way to

follow God’s urging that we have fellowship one with another, sometimes, there are so many people in church, that you may never feel like you are making a real connection with anyone. A closer walk with God. As you meet with your group each week and as you do your “homework” you’ll begin to sense God’s presence in your life more and more. There’s nothing the Father likes more than to spend time with His children and the more time you spend with Him, the closer you will become and the more likely you are to be obedient to Him. Also as you do the homework each week and return to discuss what you have learned, you will not only take with you what you have learned on your own, you will get to hear other believers’ insights and revelations about what they learned as God spoke to them through the lesson.

A spring revival will be held at Greater Mt. Zion Baptist Church, 2479 N.

Dr. James C. Thomas, pastor of Mt. Olivet Missionary Baptist Church in St. Paul, MN. The public is invited to come out and join Greater Mt. Zion and be blessed.

Jackie Robinson (Continued from pg. 4) retired Jackie Robinson’s uniform number, 42; and on April 15, 1997, Major League Baseball retired Robinson’s number 42 throughout the league, the first time such an honor was bestowed upon any player of any major American sports league. Currently, the only player still wearing #42 in baseball is New York Yankee Mariano Rivera; he got special permission to wear it from the Robinson estate and Major League Baseball. Jackie Robinson passed away on October 24, 1972 from advanced heart disease and diabetes complications. He was only 53 years old, but his legacy continues. There are countless memorials to this remarkable man – from streets, schools and sports fields named in his honor; to being named one of California’s most outstanding citizens (he grew up in Pasadena

and attended UCLA); to the New York Mets naming the rotunda of their new ball park Citi Field after Jackie Robinson. The US Postal service has issued three different Jackie Robinson commemorative stamps. Five movies and plays have been made about his life, including the recently released film, “42.” Probably the most appropriate and moving tribute is the annual Jackie Robinson Day event, celebrated every April 15, during which every player in every game played in Major League Baseball that day takes the field wearing number 42. Jack Roosevelt Robinson was truly the manner of hero you don’t see every day; his memory and example earned him the right to be remembered as a hero for all of us. Robinson’s former teammate, PeeWee Reese, was once quoted as saying, “You can hate a man for many reasons; color is not one of them.” Well said, PeeWee. Well done, Mr. Robinson.

More applicable biblical knowledge. Have you ever known someone who can quote Scripture off the top of their head like they are reading it straight from the Bible? People admire people who can do this because they seem to have exactly the right Scripture at any given moment and don’t have to thumb through the pages of their Bible only to say, “Well,

I don’t know exactly where it is but it says something like...” The only way to be able to know what Scripture says and where it says it is to study the Word and commit it to your heart and mind. Beloved, in a small group Bible study everyone is there

with a single goal in mind and that is to learn more about God and His Word, what it says about how one should live their life as a believer, allowing it to train them in how to live God’s way as well as preparing them for the tasks God has for them.

Metropolitan Baptist Church Adah Mission Circle presents Pacific Garden Mission The Adah Mission Circle of Metropolitan Missionary Baptist Church, 1345 W. Burleigh Street, is hosting the Pacific Garden Mission Choir on Sunday, April 21, 2013 at 4:00 p.m. Bringing God’s Word in song and oral testimonial service, the program is two to two and one-half hours in length. About Pacific Garden Mission: Since 1877, Pacific Garden Mission has been a refuge. Millions weary of struggling through life’s storms, have come to the “Old Lighthouse” seeking food, shelter, clothing, medical, and dental care. They also came seeking the answer to life’s struggles. They are offered the answer: life through faith in Jesus Christ. Real people…real life stories…stirring, dramatic accounts of hopelessness, and the hope that changes everything. “UNSHACKELED!” the award-winning radio drama from Pacific Garden Mission in Chicago, grips the heart with compelling and relevant stories of transformed lives. Come hear God’s Word shard through Pacific Garden Mission’s choir and ministry.

Mt. Olive Missionary Baptist Church 5277 N. 36th Street, held Resurrection Service on Sunday, March 31, 2013, beginning with Sunday school at 8:00 a.m., and was followed by Morning Service at 9:30 a.m., with Easter presentations by youth of the church. Pastor John K. Patterson’s sermon title was: "From Friday to Sunday." By way of explanation, Rev. Patterson said: “On Friday, give salvation; Saturday: “My God, why hast thou forsaken me? And on Sun-

day: “I thirst for his righteousness. It is finished. I’ve done my work on this side of glory. I commend my spirit.” (First Corinthian15: 1-8). Before service, a few of the morning worshippers pictured (from left to right) are: Pastor John K. Patterson, Sis. Dorothy Burress, Sister Lorine Hamilton, Brother Booker Hamilton, Sister Jennie Kincaid, Sister Mollie Love, Brother Johnny James and Brother Robert Burress.

Hi-Mount School students are 'Present to Learn'

Hi-Mount Community School has embraced a school wide attendance program entitled Present to Learn. The program is designed after the game Bingo. Each day when all students are present, the class will post a letter from the phrase "Present to Learn." The school is proud to announce that Mrs. Seewald's third graders from room 14 are the first to reach Bingo. These third graders encouraged Each other and their parents were very supportive in getting the children to school. Mrs. Seewald stated "the families of room 14 were great partners in this incentive program and wanted our class to be the first to reach Bingo." Mrs. Dinkins, principal of HiMount Community School, says "the name 'Present to Learn' reinforces to the children daily why they come to school and for what purpose." Once a class wins Bingo, they will start the process over again. The class winning Bingo the most will get special recognition at the end of the school year.

MATC introduces new academic Clement eighth-grader wins state for 2013-2014 forensics tournament with original poetry programs Milwaukee Area Technical College will introduce 12 new asApril is National Poetry Month, so throughout the month, Milwaukee Public Schools is highlighting the district’s talented poets. Clement Avenue School eighth-grader Taijahna LeeSeamster took first place overall in the poetry category at the Middle School State Forensics Tournament, held March 23 in Neenah, WI. Tijahna read her original poetry, powerful accounts of the experiences and impressions from her life. In writing her poems, Taijahna demonstrated exceptional literacy by using precise words and phrases, relevant descriptive details and sensory language to capture the action and convey experiences and events, as detailed in the Common Core State Standards. Forensics is a free, middleand high-school extracurricular program offered at 20 MPS schools. After teams are formed each fall in October, students rehearse from November through January and then compete in meets in late January through April. Attendance at all meets is not required, but students must meet with their coach at least once a week.

Taijahna Lee-Seamster Here is a sample of Taijahna's poetry: The Skin I’m In By Taijahna Lee-Seamster “A profoundly tender, passionate affection for another person, thing or place.” That’s the definition that many people choose to abide by, but you see I see things differently which is why, when I write I FLOW just like the deep blue seas in AFRICA. The Unexplainable beauty of the brown flesh of us. THE COLORED GIRLS. Our Nappy Hair Mahogany skin, brown eyes and curves. Curves, like swerves on a twisted street. The creators of what you call dancing to the beat. WE

ARE BEAUTY. We define what you consider beautiful. Even though in your mind it may be inconsiderable that someone with hair like mine, skin like mine, and curves like mine… just can’t be considered beautiful. But your thoughts mean nothing to me; I know that my skin is a flaw that often draws attention to me. And as you can see as well as I can, there is nothing wrong with THE SKIN IM IN. I am truly blessed with the gift that god has given to me. My skin signifies, strength, power and will. Even though for centuries my people have had to climb on what feels like the highest towers just to earn your respect and equal rights. I will not let that affect me. I stand tall with my brown skin, it is here for the world to see, and I will happily agree with anyone that says that brown signifies, beauty. Many people may not believe but many will. It’s nothing new, it’s been happening for years and many more years to come. History will continue to repeat, and as long as my heart beats I will always believe, that there is nothing wrong with THE SKIN I’M IN.

NABJ awards Marquette University senior Marissa A. Evans, student journalist of the year The National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) is proud to announce that Marissa A. Evans, a senior at Marquette University, is the 2013 Student Journalist of the Year. Evans is one of several honorees who will be recognized this summer at NABJ's 38th Annual Convention and Career Fair in Orlando. Evans is studying journalism with a minor in entrepreneurship and political science. She graduates in May and this summer she will be an intern at The Seattle Times as a Metro reporter. "A lot of young people aspire to be journalists and yet some of them aren't clear about what it takes to excel in this craft. Marissa A. Evans is not one of those young people. A student

multimedia journalist at Marquette University, Evans has devoted herself to studying the craft, undertaking internships and practicums to get real world experience, and to helping inspire others. Persistent and passionate, she has blossomed into a well-rounded storyteller who can work across platforms," said NABJ Communications Chair Christopher Nelson. Evans is the beneficiary of a slew of internships and honors ranging from being a 2012 Chips Quinn Scholar to serving as the Metro reporting intern for The Washington Post. Other internships include working at The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, The Star Tribune, and U-T San Diego. Evans' mentors include but are not limited to Herbert and Mira Lowe,

Marissa A. Evans Benét Wilson, Duchesne Drew (Star Tribune) and Jim Nelson (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel). When she was notified that she would be recognized as the student journalist of the year Evans said that she was honored that an organization she loves chose her for this special honor. "I remember when President Lee called and I was

truly stunned. I'm still at a loss for words actually. I'm humbled and blessed to know that NABJ, an organization I love and care about so much, has faith in me and the work I've been striving to do as a young journalist. I'm excited to continue serving the organization and hope to inspire the next generation of journalists coming behind me," Evans said. Evans is the founder and President of her student NABJ chapter at Marquette University and is an alumnus of the Online News Association student newsroom and The New York Times Student Journalism Institute. She was also one of the "30 under 30" honorees in San Diego County in 2011. In her leisure time, Evans invests her talents into In-

Hue magazine, her online publication which gives a minority voice to health reporting by concentrating on issues that impact people of color. InHue, which can be read at, analyzes a range of topics from food tips to exercises to relationship advice. Boasting a diverse and talented staff, InHue is starting to pick up speed and online buzz as its readership increases daily.

2012 graduation rate increases from prior year Wisconsin’s four-year graduation rate is up one-half a percentage point for 2012 from the prior year’s rate, continuing a trend of steady improvement in high school completion. The state’s graduation rate is among the highest in the nation; tied for second in the most recent (2010-11)school year data reported by the U.S. Department of Education. “Congratulations to the class of 2012 with 87.5 percent of students earning a high school diploma in four years,” said State Superintendent Tony Evers. “Graduating from high school is a milestone; it opens doors to success through further training or education for careers and civic life.” Wisconsin usesthe uniform federal four-year adjusted cohort rate to calculate graduation rates. The 2009-10 school year, the first to provide enough years of quality data for the calculation, showed 85.7 percent of students graduated after four years of high school compared to the 2012 rate of 87.5 percent. Because the adjusted cohort rate is based on longitudinal data, the DPI also produces a five-year and, for the first time, a six-year cohort graduation rate. These rates honor the additional effort many students make to complete their high school education as well as obligations under special education law and the Wisconsin Constitution. The 2012 five-year and six-year cohort graduation rates are both 90.4 percent. They represent the number of students earning a diploma five and six years after entering high school. “Focusing on college and career readiness helps students put their education

into context,” Evers said. “Our 68,639 graduates from the class of 2012 have left high school to pursue further education or enter the workforce, and in the coming years they will be forming families and becoming leaders in their communities and our nation.” The legacy graduation rate, which has been used for many years, is 90.6 percent for 2012, up one-tenth of a percentage point from 2011. The legacy rate is no longer used for federal reporting. It is considered a snapshot of high school completion and is based on the number of graduates earning a regular high school diploma divided by the total number of students expected to complete high school . From 2011 to 2012 cohort graduation rates improved for most subgroups of students. Between 2010 and 2012 gaps closed for most student groups, though data shows disparities in graduation rates by racial and ethnic groups as well as by economic status, disability, and English language proficiency. Because of race and ethnicity reporting changes in 2010-11, some caution should be used in comparing rates for those subgroups of students. Though most students graduate between the ages of 17 and 19, Wisconsin’s Constitution guarantees students a free appropriate public education through the age of 20. State law requires school districts to identify

State Superintendent Tony Evers

students who may not graduate from high school. Students in grades five through 12 are considered “at risk” if they have poor school attendance, low academic achievement, problems with high school credit accumulation, or other issues. These students, along with those who have dropped out, usually require additional services to complete their high school education. “Most school districts have

a variety of opportunities or alternative programs to help students who may not graduate,” Evers said. “However, cuts to public education funding through state budget action is making it increasingly difficult for schools to provide these services. We must have bipartisan cooperation to re-invest in education and our kids’ future.”

Superfoods: Foods with benefits (part 5)

Hippocrates had it right around 300 B.C. when he advised, "Make thy food thy medicine, and thy medicine thy food." (We're slow learners as a race, aren't we?) We discuss 10 superfoods. Traditionally defined, these foods have exceptional properties. A grocery list follows the discussion. It features the foods most frequently rated as "super."

Health Tips Encourage your toddler to read

Helping kids conquer bedwetting

Gently note words that are pronounced incorrectly. Reading is a key part of a youngster’s learning and development, and parents can take steps to help children foster a lifelong love of reading. The American Academy of Pediatrics suggests how to help toddlers get the most from their reading time: Cuddle up in a comfortable, quiet spot to read together. Work on pronunciation by noting words that your child pronounces incorrectly. Read slowly to help your child understand what’s happening in the book. Use reading time as a way to help soothe, comfort and calm your child when he or she is upset.

What you can do to help your children stay dry When children are developmentally ready, parents can take steps to help them stay dry through the night. The U.S. Kidney and Urologic Diseases Information Clearinghouse lists these suggestions for parents to help prevent bedwetting in children: Encourage your child to drink plenty of fluids during the day, to avoid drinking too much at bedtime. Don't give your child caffeinated drinks such as soda or tea. Let your child have one drink with dinner, but make that the last drink before bed. Make sure your child goes to the bathroom right before bed. Be supportive and don't scold your child if he or she wets the bed. Offer plenty of praise when your child stays dry all night.

Mrs. Dorsey celebrates her 107th birthday

Mrs. Harriet Dorsey celebrated her 107th birthday with family and friends Thursday, April 11, 2013, at the Clinton Rose Senior Center. Born in Douglas, Georgia, she moved to the city of Atlanta and later to Cincinnati, Ohio, where she and her husband raised three of their children. Some years later, Mr. Dorsey travelled to Milwaukee where he was hired by the Allis Chalmers Company in the mid-1940s. Later, Mr. Dorsey would send for Mrs. Dorsey and the children. Arriving in Milwaukee, Mrs. Dorsey would soon be hired by Columbia Hospital, which she later quit to raise five boys and one girl who ranged in age from four to eight, who parents had passed. Today, Mrs. Dorsey suffers from Alzheimer’s and is being cared for by Stevie, a grandson she cared for. Stevie is her caretaker and he recalled walking to church from his grandparents’ home and how Mrs. Dorsey “honored the Lord,” in caring for him, his brothers and sister. “I recalled my childhood years were like a “a beautiful movie,” he said fondly as he explained how Photo by George Neal he cares for his grandmother for whom he cook, bathes and dresses. “I care for her like she cared for me,” he said proudly. Mrs. Dorsey doesn’t get around much these days, but she still enjoys spirituals and gospel music, Stevie says. He later explained that Mrs. Dorsey “enjoys the same quality of life she provided to him, his brothers and sister because he understands very well the sacrifice his grandparents made for them. Stevie concluded, saying: “I would like to provide for her my very best, just as she did for us.”

A nation can rise no higher than its women "Protect and Respect Our Women and Girls" was the topic of Brother William Muhammad’s lecture on Saturday, April 13, at the Parklawn yMCA. More than three dozen men and youth came to hear Brother Muhammad's empowering and instructive 35 minute high-energy lecture, which drew praises of “amen” and “preach”, which were audible throughout Brother Muhammad’s presentation. After his lecture, several groups sat in circles to discuss a handout of The Nation of Islam Study Guide titled “The Divine Nature and Value of Women,” written by The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan. your life in accordance with things not of this world, but of the next world – when you die, you live through your children – that’s the importance of the woman!” He passionately discussed how Mary, Jesus’ mother had a desire in her womb to give birth to a God. He talked about how Minister Louis Farrakhan wrote about how to give birth to a God. Brother Muhammad also inched closer to other arguments of abuse of women by fathers not taking responsibility for them or their children. He said; “Sex is not for recreation, God gave it us it, it’s a commitment between a man and a woman, an expression and confirmation of love, respect and responsibility, from that it is producing an extension of love,

anything else is perverse and corrupt and the consequence of what we see out there.” Brother Muhammad told the audience of men on importance and the value of women in our lives and society and in our right. “Men need to understand the value of women and be willing to give his life for her protection! Otherwise, we just sit here and play around, don’t talk about the injustice of the white man. If you will not protect your woman, the white man will never respect you until you respect your woman.” Brother Muhammad created a call to action for the listeners to “think about the young girls and young boys in your life; we have to raise the level of consciousness that women are important and valuable.”
