Is Baldwin Hills ‘fracking up’? „ Some groups fret over likelihood of a major disaster BY MERDIES HAYES OW CONTRIBUTOR

Fracking. It is a non-euphonius term that rhymes with cracking and whose sound connotes all kinds of unpleasant thoughts. But to certain residents of the Los Angeles area it is much more than just a unpleasant sound; it’s an oil-company practice that many in the nation and around the world consider both highly destructive and life-threatening, so much so that the Los Angeles City Council has passed a resolution against it, Culver City has called for a statewide ban against it, and at least one Assembly bill has been proposed limiting the practice. But it continues. The controversial method of oil fracking—the proper name is hydraulic fracturing—is generating alarm among households in some of the richest portions of Black Los Angeles—Baldwin Hills, Windsor Hills and View Park—as well as in Culver City. Areas of immense concern range from fear of water contamination and air pollution to property damage and an increased chance of earthquakes. What may have begun as a Republican political rallying cry for more oil drilling a few years ago has resulted in very real quality-of-life distress for about 12,000 area residents. Spanning about two square miles, the Baldwin Hills portion of the historic Inglewood Oil Field—the third largest in America—is itself one of the nation’s largest contiguous urban oil fields. It stretches from La Cienega Boulevard on the east to the Culver City border on the west, to Slauson Avenue on the south and Stocker Avenue on the north. The area, including nearby Ladera Heights, makes up one of the nation’s most prominent upper-middleclass African American communities. Since African Americans began moving into the area during the 1960s after the restrictive housing covenants were broken, it has been home to such celebrities as Ray Charles, Nancy Wilson, Tina Turner, actresses Regina King and Viola Davis, Mayor Tom Bradley, and actress/dancer Debbie Allen and her husband, former basketball great Norm Nixon, and a number of today’s Black entertainers. Besides its near-sublime views of the Los Angeles basin, the quiet, meandering streets are just minutes from downtown and major freeways; and to the Black professional class, its shady trees and secluded landscape for decades have served as a communal refuge from busy city life below. Fracking has taken place worldwide for many years, but with the pressing need to tap new sources of oil and natural gas, the petroleum industry has developed advanced—and uncertified—methods of coaxing more oil and gas from the ground that opponents of the procedure and watchdog groups nationwide have vehemently rejected. A history of the precarious typography of Baldwin Hills keeps residents naturally on edge. In December 1963, the Baldwin Hills reservoir collapsed, sending thousands of gallons of water sweeping toward Jefferson and La Cienega boulevards. Within 77 minutes, five people were killed and 65 homes were ripped from their foundations and washed downhill. It was revealed that over-exploration of the oil field had caused a pencil-thin crack along the face of the reservoir.

One year ago an agreement between the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors and Plains Exploration and Production Co. (PXP), the oil company, was reached to resolve four lawsuits by the Community Health Councils Inc., the Natural Resources Defense Council, the city of Culver City, Concerned Citizens of South Central Los Angeles and the Citizen’s Coalition for a Safe community. The suit challenged the board’s vote in October 2008 authorizing PXP to develop 600 new wells over the next 20 years in Baldwin Hills without any further public hearings or environmental review. The dissenting groups claimed the county violated the California Environment Quality Act by not submitting an “adequate environment impact report” before adopting the Baldwin Hill Community Standards District in the regulation of 1,000 acres of oil drilling and production activities. Key elements of the settlement include: reduced drilling of new wells, increased air quality monitoring, more stringent noise limits and mandatory recurring health and environment justice assessments. “This is a very dangerous and unhealthy process,” said Brenna Norton of Food and Water Watch of Los Angeles, who, along with Citizen Coalition for a Safe Community, have condemned the production process. “There are far too many households within proximity of the field to continue this still-unproven method of oil drilling.” Oil fracking, simplified, is a procedure in which water and various chemicals are forced underground under very high pressure to create or increase fractures in surrounding rock in order to release petroleum and gas. As the pressure builds, it continues to enlarge the fracture and eventually a proppant, usually sand, ceramic or other particulates, is injected to prevent the fractures from closing once the pressure is released. Then engineers force a slurry of gels, foams, compressed gases (nitrogen and carbon dioxide) underground to form a hardened ring around a core through which oil is extracted. Once the process is finished, the new propped fractures provide pathways for fluids to flow to the core. The trouble is, say residents, no one knows what type of chemicals are mixed within the water level and they fear water, soil and air pollutants will spread dangerously throughout the area. Residents say this still precarious method of oil extraction should not be tested where people live. Nationwide, residents living near fracked petroleum wells have filed more than 1,000 complaints regarding tainted water, severe illnesses, livestock deaths and even fish kills. California Assembly Bill 972 was supposed to place a moratorium on fracking, but activists say the measure is not strong enough. It reportedly does not provide any standards, guidelines or minimum requirements for regulation nor stop new wells from being dug. "The bill, as it stands now, is way too weak,” Norton said, “because it only applies to old wells already drilled. Hundreds of new wells are being proposed; this process is not safe by any measure. There should be no fracking taking place, not just a measure to delay the inevitable damage to the community. There should be no minimum requirement to proceed until PXP can prove the process is safe.” PXP, based in Houston, in 2005 pushed for a huge expansion of drilling operations in Baldwin Hills. In 1924, when Baldwin Hills was mostly farm and graz-

ing land, about 145 barrels a day were extracted from a relatively small area within the larger Inglewood field, but today that whole field, in addition to the Wilmington Oil Field, about 15 miles to the south, combine to make one of the world’s most prolific oil reserves—about 2 million barrels a day. A spokesman for PXP, John Martini, manager of environmental health, safety and government affairs, said: “In recognition of questions and concerns from the community, PXP is conducting the first site study in California. It will be available for review later this year. As to the Inglewood Oil Field, the community has more questions answered than any other com-

East, to oil recovered in the West. The oil industry got an additional boost when the city’s love affair with the automobile began in the 1920s as oil production in Baldwin Hills began in earnest. According to a July 2008 issue of OurWeekly: “These initial forays into oil exploration were often punctuated by ‘oil gushers,’ the sudden eruption of oil from the ground to distances as high as 200 feet. This phenomenon occurred as so-called ‘wildcatters’ (exploratory oil prospectors) penetrated large underground reservoirs under high pressure from millions of years of evolution.” Despite the ready reserve of available “sweet crude,”

munity in California where PXP is operating. “[There] has been a common observation, a misunderstanding and confusion of what fracking is,”said Martini. “Fracking is not an all-inclusive process in well-drilling, it is a short-completion process. The Inglewood field is regulated by the Community Standards District. It is California’s most regulated oil field in terms of odor, noise, hours of delivery and aesthetic concerns. We conduct annual surveys. We check for property damage. We check for links from the production process to any damage from homes in the area.” Drilling for oil had been well established in California since the dawn of the 20th century. In Los Angeles, Edward Doheny tapped one of the early local reserves (at present-day Dodger Stadium) and an expansive oil boom resulted, covering many former agriculture fields with craggy, wooden oil derricks and “grasshopper” pumping machines. By the early 1920s, Los Angeles was producing one-quarter of the world’s oil supply. It was then that railroads made the shift from coal extracted in the

the population explosion after World War II brought an end to the thousands of oil derricks once dotting the Southern California landscape as residents began to abhor the smell and unsightly landscape in favor of freeways and the newly innovated housing tract. By 2002, oil production in Los Angeles ranged from 2.5 to 3.1 million barrels a year. In 2008, a Community Standards District was adopted by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors for Baldwin Hills to mitigate the common problems related to oil drilling. These concerns amounted to minimal aesthetic factors such as an unsightly landscape, increased industrial noise, foul odors, heavy equipment and traffic concerns. Opponents of fracking say potential physical damage and health concerns didn’t seem to be a priority. Also, that year a required environmental impact report on the field suggested that there should be no deepening of existing wells and no new wells dug until further study and tests are completed.

Statewide report shines light on mental health disparities „ Seeks to educate physicians and policymakers BY SHAE COLLINS OW INTERN

The African American Health Institute of San Bernardino County, a nonprofit organization whose purpose is to build awareness of health disparities, as well as decrease premature deaths and disabilities among ethnic populations, recently released its statewide African American mental health report entitled, “We Ain’t Crazy! Just Coping With a Crazy System: Pathways into the Black Population for Eliminating Mental Health Disparities.” The report was distributed and discussed at a town hall meeting held as a part of the National Black Mental Health Worker’s Conference recently held at the Westin Hotel LAX. The report was put together through the African American Health Institutes’ California Reducing Disparities Project (CRDP), and funded by the Mental Health Services Act (Prop. 63). The project received a $411,052 two-year contract to complete the research from March 1, 2009, to Feb. 29, 2012 . The report contains community strategies, models, and other resources and approaches for practitioners, program planners, and policymakers in order to address mental health needs and reduce disparities in the African American community. It also includes the most current disparity data as well as information about mental and behavioral health prevention and early intervention affecting people of African ancestry in California. The information was obtained from focus groups, surveys, interviews, small group meetings and public forums, which altogether included a total of 260 people. Participants in the project were residents of the 14 counties where 92 percent of the Black population lives.

During the town hall meeting, Nicelma King, Ph.D., an editor of the report, presented the highlights of discussions with project participants. King said those surveyed discussed what they considered good and poor mental health, their attitudes about medication, and how available they feel treatment is. Participants identified matters including a sound moral foundation, functioning in society, and being able to cope with life challenges as components of good mental health and said that poverty, hopelessness, misunderstanding of cultural style, and identity crises were among components of poor mental health. Many participants said that within the Black community mental health is often not talked about, ignored, and viewed as a personal weakness. They also mentioned that often times it can be difficult to access treatment for a mental health condition. In addition to information from project participants, CRDP used public data from the California Health Interview Survey, which found that in 2007 African Americans were 30 percent more likely to be diagnosed with serious psychological problems and 50 percent more likely to report symptoms of depressive episodes. Analyzing this information along with the perspectives of participants in the project, CRDP suggested that the mental health system has provided problematic treatment to people of African descent. Participants in CRDP reported inappropriate and inaccurate diagnoses, disproportionate findings of severe mental illness and inadequate coordination of services. In addition, the report identifies community practices that promote good mental health. These include supportive family involvement, rites of passage programs and spiritual guidance. The report also includes a list of priority actions communities can take to promote mental health. They include working with the justice system to distinguish between the need for mental care versus incarceration; creating mobile centers that provide access to mental health workers and medication, and providing more jobs for survivors of mental illnesses.

Willis Edwards, 66, remembered as an uncommon activist „ Memorial observances set OW STAFF

Memorial services were set for Friday and Saturday for civil rights activist Willis Edwards, who died of cancer Friday at Providence Holy Cross Medical Center in Mission Hills at age 66. The Los Angeles Urban League has arranged “An Evening of Reflections” to be held from 6-8 p.m. Friday at Angelus Funeral Home, 3875 Crenshaw Blvd., and “A Celebration of Life” funeral service will be held at 2:30 p.m. Saturday at First A.M.E. Church, 2270 S. Harvard Blvd. Edwards was a longtime activist and powerbroker for Black leaders in and outside politics on local, state and national stages. He became famous for his campaign to raise the profile of civil rights activist Rosa Parks, securing the elderly Parks a seat next to thenfirst lady Hillary Rodham Clinton during President Bill Clinton’s 1999 State of the Union speech. Edwards worked on numerous political campaigns, including both Robert Kennedy’s presidential campaign in 1968 and the Rev. Jesse Jackson’s in 1988.

He was active in Los Angeles politics, serving on the Civil Service Commission in the 1970s under Mayor Tom Bradley, and coordinating former South African President Nelson Mandela’s visit to Los Angeles in 1992. He became president of the Beverly HillsHollywood Branch of the NAACP, where he gained notoriety for persuading then-NBC president Brandon Tartikoff to televise the NAACP Image Awards. Edwards, who was HIV positive, became known in recent years for his effort to raise awareness about HIV/AIDS prevention and LGBT issues. He spoke about the image of LGBT Blacks in the media during a 2009 Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation conference and was honored on World AIDS Day in 2010 by the Black AIDS Institute and the Magic Johnson Foundation. Gregory Franks, president and CEO of the Tom & Ethel Bradley Foundation, called Edwards an “incredible human being” and noted on the foundation’s website that he “was the first African American student body president at California State University, Los Angeles; was responsible for bringing the Image Awards to television, and was the architect of the

Rosa Parks funeral and memorial services in Montgomery, Ala., Washington D.C. and Detroit, Mich.” Former Congresswoman Diane Watson, for whom Edwards worked during her election campaigns, told the Los Angeles Willis Edwards Times: “Willis was really a creative genius. He could gain access to the White House or to any chamber he wanted to. He could get doors open that others couldn’t.” Los Angeles Urban League President Blair Taylor described Edwards as “the kind of man that comes along maybe once in 10 million. He was always willing to help those in need without any expectations, and always willing to find humor, even in the midst of life’s greatest challenges.” Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa called Edwards a friend for more than 20 years and an extraordinary civil rights leader. “He made the impossible, possible; he fought the

unjust for justice; he spoke boldly in the places of silence; and he stood tall and fearless as a leader when others cowered,” Villaraigosa said. “We are a better city, nation and world because of the excellence of Willis Edwards.” Said Congresswoman Karen Bass: “It was absolutely heartbreaking to learn about the death of my dear friend Willis Edwards. Although he was sick for some time, losing a vibrant soul and faithful supporter of so many people in our community is never easy. "It is my hope that Willis knew how much we all loved him and considered him to be a legend in Black history. His dedication to civil rights as well as California and national politics will never be forgotten. He worked tirelessly to ensure positive images of African Americans were displayed on television when he persuaded NBC to televise the NAACP Image Awards show, and was right by civil rights icon Rosa Parks’ side prior to her death.” Urban Issues Forum managing director Anthony Asadullah Samad referred to Edwards as “one of the most serious and committed activists I ever met.” Politics, race and pop culture critic Jasmyne Cannick noted that while Edwards was “not” openly gay, “he was a strong advocate for HIV and AIDS issues.” In lieu of flowers, mourners were asked to send donations to the Beverly Hills-Hollywood NAACP, 1680 N. Vine St., suite 700, Hollywood, CA 90028.

Services for former NFL running back Charles Drake III to be held today

Maria Cole, widow of Nat, laid to rest in Forest Lawn

„ Standout athlete succumbs at 30

„ Former jazz singer died of cancer

Memorial services will be held at 11 a.m. today at the Bible Enrichment Fellowship International Church for Charles Edward Drake III, a former NFL running back, who died on July 5. He was 30. Born to Elizabeth and Charles Drake on Sept. 25, 1981, he was known to many as Charles, but his family and friends affectionately called him “Chuck,” a nickname given to him by his best friend Marcell, who preceded him in death. Drake, at an early age accepted Jesus Christ as his personal Lord and Savior, and was an active member at Park Windsor Baptist Church. Drake attended Transfiguration School, Audubon Jr. High and graduated from Westchester High School in 1999. As a youth he loved sports and played football, baseball and track for Baldwin Hills Park. Drake was awarded the Kevin Copeland Award and ultimately won his first football championship against archrival, The Demos, in 1994. Drake also participated in football and track for the Westchester Comets. The athlete earned numerous accolades as an AllCity and All Star running back and still holds the record for running yardage at Westchester. His athletic ability and his scholastic aptitude earned him a full scholarship to the University of Michigan. At the university Drake majored in kinesiology/sports marketing and played football as a Michigan Wolverine. He was awarded the Robert P. Ufer award, one of four prestigious awards for seniors at Michigan. His exceptional athletic ability was

rewarded by being drafted in 2003 by the New York Giants. Drake played professionally with the N.Y. Giants, the Detroit Lions, NFL Europe (Rein Fire & Frankfurt Galaxy), and Charles E. Drake III was selected to play in the NFL Europe World Bowl Championship game with the Galaxy. He also played with the European Austrian League (Hohenem Blue Devils). In a statement his loved ones said, “Our family feels extremely blessed to have a grandson, son, brother, nephew, cousin, uncle, and father of his magnitude. Words will never express how deeply we love him. We will greatly miss him. We will cherish his memory forever. Although difficult as it may be, we will go forward, together, to honor his memory, knowing he lovingly smiles down upon us and he is pleased.” Drake is survived by his parents; Charles and Elizabeth; sisters, LaTanya and Sonae, his daughter Milaan and his son Charles IV; one nephew and two nieces.

A private funeral service for Maria Cole, the widow of singer Nat King Cole and mother of singer Natalie Cole, was held this week at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, Calif. Cole died in a nursing home in Boca Raton, Fla., after a short battle with cancer at the age of 89 on July 10. Marie Frances Hawkins was born in Boston in 1922 to Mingo and Caro Hawkins, but after her mother died when Marie was 2, she and her sister Charlotte were sent to live with an aunt, Charlotte Hawkins Brown, Ph.D., in Greensboro, N.C. Brown was the founder of the well-regarded preparatory school, Palmer Memorial Institute, in that city. Cole later moved to Boston to attend clerical school, but eventually moved to New York to pursue a music career. As a jazz singer she was notable as having worked with the bands of Count Basie and Duke Ellington. According to her family, Ellington heard recordings of Maria singing and hired her as a vocalist with his orchestra. She sang for him until 1946 when she began soloing at the city’s Club Zanzibar as an opening act for the Mills Brothers. There she met Nat “King” Cole and they were married in 1948 at Adam Clayton Powell Jr.’s Abyssinian Baptist Church and remained together until his death 17 year later in 1965. Cole traveled and performed with her husband throughout the ’50s. After Nat died from cancer, Maria Cole created the Cole Cancer Foundation. She produced James Baldwin’s play “Amen Corner” on Broadway in 1965. In 1971, she published

a book about her husband, “Nat King Cole: An Intimate Biography,” which was co-authored by Louie Robinson. In 1987, she and singer Johnny Mathis starred in a PBS tribute to Nat King Cole. Maria and Natalie Cole accepted a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award for their husband and father in 1990. “Our mom was in a class all by herself,” her daughters said in a joint statement. “She epitomized, class, elegance, and truly defined what it is to be a real lady. We are so blessed and privileged to have inherited the legacy that she leaves behind along with our father. She died how she lived—with great strength, courage and dignity, surrounded by her loving family.” Cole, who lived in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., is survived by her three daughters, Natalie Cole, Timolin Cole-Augustus, and Casey Cole-Hooker, and six grandchildren.

Fracking from COVER STORY page 3 In June, more than 450 residents met at a Culver City Council meeting to voice complaints, bringing with them attorneys, geologists and even a neurologist to discuss possible health hazards and property destruction associate,d with the drilling plan. The Los Angeles City Council passed a resolution in June banning oil fracking a day after Assembly Bill 972 was adopted. According to a Los Angeles Times article in June, former Los Angeles County Supervisor Yvonne Burke, who then represented the county’s second district, may have pressured county staff to increase the number of wells PXP could drill. “The California Department of Conservation (its division of Oil, Gas and Geothermal Research) has been conducting a listening tour, and the complaints made by residents of Baldwin Hills and Culver City demonstrate that this drilling process must not continue in any form,” said Rebecca Rona of Frack-Free Culver City, a local activist environmental group. “Everything from micro-earthquakes, water and soil contamination, sink holes, home fracturing (foundations are literally split) and methane gas emission are facts that are generating serious health and property concerns. The new techniques used by the oil industry have not been tested sufficiently, particularly near residential neighborhoods. This process is not safe. There needs to be a complete ban.” Food and Water Watch Los Angeles reports that, nationwide, oil fracking has contributed to more than 1,000 cases of water contamination, along with regional air pollution from the release of methane gas. Local geologists cite the constant threat of earthquakes, which may be exacerbated because of the proximity of the Newport-Inglewood Fault. There is visible and recent property damage to many homes near the Baldwin Hills field. Even worse, an article titled “Fracking Nation” in the May 2011 issue of Discover magazine reveals findings by geochemist Tracy Bank showing “that high-pressure fluids striking the shale [rock] could dislodge naturally occurring radioactive compounds

such as uranium and strontium, putting groundwater at risk of contamination. “‘Shale is a garbage-bucket rock,’ she says. ‘The more organically rich the shale is, the more natural gas is present, but the more other stuff is in there too.’ “To determine how fracking fluids mobilize metals in the shale, Bank and her team solicited rock samples from drill sites in western New York and Pennsylvania. When the researchers subjected their samples to beamed ions—a high-precision way to dislodge surface chemicals—they confirmed that shale rocks contain a suite of toxic metals, including uranium, barium, chromium, zinc, and arsenic. Bank also discovered something new and disturbing: The metals were chemically bound to hydrocarbons, the organic compounds that make up natural gas. Separated from the rock, uranium or any other toxic metal could easily hitch a ride when the drilling wastewater is siphoned back to the surface . . . .” Well-known Los Angeles journalist and commentator Earl Ofari Hutchinson, who resides in Baldwin Hills, believes the process of fracking has cost him serious property damage. “Our home was knocked off its foundation and began to shift and slide downhill,” he said. “It started in mid 2006. We’ve been living here for 20 years and nothing like this occurred until they started drilling. PXP came in and people immediately saw an expansion of drilling. My neighbors’ homes are just as bad. It is no accident that these damages occurred almost immediately after PXP began this process. In our case, the damages amounted to more than $200,000, and the drilling still has not stopped.” Hutchinson echoes the call for a moratorium on the drilling “ . . . until there is an unbiased, independent review not conducted by PXP.” Food and Water Watch also reports that cities in Vermont, New York and New Jersey confirm the same damages and health hazards due to fracking. Norton sees the potential harm to communities as analogous to someone exploding “a bomb 10,000 feet below” in order to fracture the granite by huge force to allow water and various chemicals (suspected among these, cyanide, chromium, mercury, etc.) to permeate the ground and make the extraction easier. “There are no effective safety measures with this type of technology,” Norton said. “ It’s a catastrophe waiting to happen.”

Attorney tries to push Miramonte sexual-abuse case to federal level „ FBI Crimes Against Children Unit examines CITY NEWS SERVICE

An attorney representing the families of nearly a dozen children who were allegedly sexually abused by a teacher at Miramonte Elementary School said today he was pushing for a federal investigation into the alleged activities at the school and throughout the LAUSD. Attorney Brian Claypool said he sent a letter to President Barack Obama asking that the federal government conduct an investigation into the activities at Miramonte and the Los Angeles Unified School District’s handling of the case and other reports of child abuse. Clayoiik said he was subsequently contacted by

the FBI’s Crimes Against Children Unit, which indicated it was interested in learning more about the Miramonte situation. Former Miramonte teacher Mark Berndt, 61, of Torrance, has been charged with 23 counts of committing a lewd act on a child between 2005 and 2011. The charges involve 23 children who were 7 to 10 years old. Prosecutors contend he took photos of children who were unknowingly being spoon-fed bodily fluids or eating semen-tainted cookies. Claypool has already sued the LAUSD on behalf of 11 Miramonte children and their families. Los Angeles School Police Department Chief Steven Zipperman said he was unaware of any federal investigation, but said the district was willing to

Bankruptcy rumors fly around Compton „ Council members make no decision BY SHAE COLLINS OW INTERN

At a recent city council meeting, comptroller Steven Ajobiewe told council members that at its current cash consumption rate, Compton will run out of money to make its payroll on Sept. 1. The city has already accumulated a $43 million deficit and depleted a $22 million reserve. “I have $3 million in the bank and $5 million in warrants due in the next 10 to 12 days,” said City Treasurer Doug Sanders. “By then, the council will have a decision to make: don’t pay the bonds, default on them, or have a serious talk about bankruptcy.”

However, the meeting ended without any discussion on filing bankruptcy. In addition, credit rating agency Standard and Poor (S&P) threatened to cut the city’s BB credit rating. S&P gave Compton 90 days to produce an audit report. If the city does not make the deadline, S&P may withdraw or suspend its ratings on as much as $70 million in city bonds. According to City Clerk Alita Godwin, the mention of bankruptcy came up at the council meeting; however, filing is not currently on the council’s agenda. Despite the rumors and the deficit, the city of Compton is far from bankruptcy, she explained. VISIT US ONLINE FOR

NEW YORK A national class-action lawsuit filed recently charges that top executives at Wet Seal directed senior managers to get rid of African American store management employees for the sake of its “brand image,” and to hire more White employees. In March 2009, for example, after visiting several stores the senior vice president reportedly emailed store visit notes to the vice president of store operations and a district manager. Under the heading, “Global Issues,” she wrote, “Store Teams need diversity—African Americans dominate—huge issue.” Another senior executive ordered a district manager to “clean the entire store out” after observing numerous African American employees working there. Over 20 charges of discrimination have been filed by current and former Wet Seal employees with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, including a charge filed by a former regional director alleging she was fired for promoting an African American to manage a high-profile store.

OHIO The Children’s Defense Fund is issuing an urgent call to action as it convenes its first national conference in nine years. In Cincinnati, from July 22-25, more than 3,000 leading advocates, including 1,500 young adults, will gather to discuss best practices and actionable steps to renew and reinvigorate the pursuit of justice for the country’s most vulnerable—children. Together they will call on President Obama and Gov. Romney, as well as state and local candidates, to discuss what each would do to advance children’s rights in the next administration.

50 Cent

NATIONAL Autism Live host Shannon Penrod announced that she would like rapper 50 Cent to put his money where his mouth is by giving 50 cents for each of his 8 million Facebook followers to an autism nonprofit organization. Penrod’s announcement is a response to a tweet 50 Cent sent to his Twitter followers last week, when he responded to one fan with, “yeah just saw your picture fool you look autistic.” 50 Cent has since apologized for the offensive remark, but Penrod said it’s not enough. “I would like to see 50 Cent give to an autism organization to help children in need,” said Penrod. “There are hundreds of charitable organizations that could really benefit from the money and support. But what do I know? I am just a mom of a child with autism. There are a lot of wonderful children on the autism spectrum who are counting on 50 Cent to do the right thing.”

It’s never too early. Start reading to your kids on day one. Even a trip to the grocery store is a chance to learn. Read food labels, shopping lists, and store signs to your child. It all helps.

Practical Politics „ The politics of progress in recognizing the talents of women BY DAVID L. HORNE, PH.D. OW CONTRIBUTOR

For those already used to hard work, long practices and ‘burning the midnight and twilight hours’ oil,’ it is no revelation when someone says, as Frederick Douglass famously did, “there is no progress without struggle … power concedes nothing without a demand, it never did and it never will.” Africa, in its inexorable movement forward, is proving that daily. Yes, there are still dictators and coups d’etats there. Yes, there is still way too much poverty, malnutrition, disease, and lack of clean water there. Yes, too many other countries still use Africa as a toxic dumping ground on the one hand, and a resource-rich territory of easy exploitation and mineral extraction on the other. But things are getting better for Africa and Africans daily, sometimes grudgingly, but still tangibly. We must remember to celebrate our small and large victories in Africa and in the African Diaspora whenever we see them. Putting them off for another day risks losing the momentum of the triumph, and since we need many, many more of them, any inspiration we earn, we should e-blast everywhere. By the way, for those who did not get the memo, as Africa goes, so goes African Americans (whether we get that yet or not does not change that reality). One such victory is the continuing success of women in achieving policy-making positions in Africa’s movement forward. The African Union—the continental body whose raison d’etre is to establish a United States of Africa/Union of African States within the next 30 years—has repeatedly said that women must be loosed to soar upwards and outwards, along with youth, in order for Africa to even come close to achieving that unification objective. Regarding youth, not much progress has been seen, but among women, it has become clear that, ‘the talent, wisdom and resolve necessary to get to

African unification cannot be confined to the male gender, to one or two African ethnicities, or to particular African territories. Women must not be confined to some backward, traditional role of submissive supplicant waiting to be told what to do. So, it is with great pride that this column announces the ascension of Nkosazana DlaminiZuma, M.D., (pronounced Dee-la-mini Zuma) as the new African Union Commission chair, newly elected July 15, in Ethiopia. This particular officer stands as the virtual “prime minister” of Africa, since the AUC chair runs the AU Secretariat and the daily activities of the AU. It is essentially the face and voice of the African Union, and is more of a reliable spokesperson than the annually rotating African heads of state chair. Congratulations, Madam Zuma! From you, Africa and the African Diaspora expect great and substantive things, given your long history of expertise and solid service in governmental affairs. Without going into a long resume history, let it be said that this sister is bad. She’s the former minister of foreign affairs in the South African government, and she is the current minister of home affairs. She had to get votes from two-thirds of the African countries’ representatives, and by the end of the third round of voting, she had them. She has a reputation of quiet efficiency and strategic diplomacy. She simply gets stuff done. She’ll need all of that and more to get the AU back into balance, but she is the right leader for this particular time, and in her, the African Diaspora has a friend. With Madam Joyce Banda of Malawi already the second African head of state (along with Liberia’s Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf), there seems a strong move afoot for the AU to practice what it preaches in terms of advancing smart African women. Add to that the AU’s ambassador to the U.S., Amina S. Ali, who made a triumphant visit to Los Angeles, Compton and Long Beach last May, and Israel’s newly appointed first Ethiopian Hebrew as the Israeli ambassador to the AU, Beylanesh Zevadia. It seems a pattern of growth, development and talent recognition is well in place.

Counting the cost „ Rep. Jackson’s plight should serve as a lesson BY JULIANNE MALVEAUX TRICE EDNEY COLUMNIST

Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. (D-Ill.) has been away from Congress on medical leave for so long that his colleagues have been clamoring to know what’s wrong, and NBC’s Andrea Mitchell reported that the Congressman was receiving treatment for addiction. The truth, according the Rep. Jackson’s staff, is that the Congressman is being treated in a residential facility for exhaustion and mood disorders.

“…any politician who has come out of the closet about his or her mental health gets anything but a hard time.” Why not say that in the first place? Because divulging one’s mental health status is often the kiss of death in politics and public life. It may be OK in Hollywood to speak exhaustion, mood swings, and other mental health issues. In that world, treatment is often followed by a late night talk show interview and a career revival. In contrast, any politician who has come out of the closet about his or her mental health gets anything but a hard time. Sen. Thomas Eagleton (D-Mo.), who had been elected to local, state, and national office since 1960, briefly joined the McGovern presidential ticket in 1972. When his medical records were leaked to McGovern, Eagleton was pushed from the Democratic ticket, because he had long-standing

Campaign spending everywhere, but little for the Black press „ Has the president forgotten his political base? BY WALTER SMITH NEW YORK BEACON

In 2008, the presidential elections cost a record-setting $2.8 billion. To win that election, Barack Obama spent $740.6 million, eclipsing the combined $646.7 that George W. Bush and John Kerry spent four years earlier. Obama’s spending accounted for 44 percent of all the money spent in that campaign. A Wall Street analyst projects that 2012 spending for ads across all media will easily surpass the $2.8

billion mark. Obama inherited a country in severe economic recession, a real estate market that was belly up, and an auto industry that was on the verge of collapse— General Motor’s shares had tumbled to $3.36 per share. In his first post-election press conference, Obama called the automakers “the backbone of American manufacturing” as thousands of auto industry employees belonged to unions that are a part of the democratic base. The financial “bailouts” of 2009—$17.4 billion for General Motors and Chrysler, $6 billion for GMAC, $1.5 billion for Chrysler Financial—while great for those companies and the many others that received stimulus aid, had no visual and significant impact on the Black community. So many African Americans remain disillusioned

about the benefits of the Obama presidency, and the financially depressed Black press wonders why it has been overlooked. The Black press is the undisputed bedrock of Obama’s political base. National Newspaper Publishers Association member newspapers carry positive stories about President Obama and his administration on a weekly basis. Obama lives because of the Black press and the Black church and he is now in a position to utilize their services and expertise and provide a financial stimulus to this struggling entity. A budget of $20 million should adequately serve to inform, educate and influence the African American vote—which is a significant part of the democratic base. While it is true that African Americans represent 13.6 percent of the U.S. population, and do not pos-

mental health problems. He checked into hospitals three times for physical and nervous exhaustion, was known to have suffered from depression, and reportedly received electroconvulsive therapy twice. While his mental health history was not part of the public record, his hospitalizations led to speculation that he had a drinking problem. Still, he was so effective as a campaigner and politician that he unseated an incumbent Democrat in a race for the United States Senate. When McGovern learned that Eagleton had taken the anti-psychotic drug Thorazine, and when his doctors spoke of his “manic depression,” the South Dakota senator initially supported Eagleton. However, when McGovern learned that Eagleton’s depression could return, he asked the senator to withdraw from the ticket, and Eagleton complied. Even though 77 percent of the American people said Eagleton’s medical record would not affect their vote, Republican opposition was geared up to attack McGovern because of Eagleton’s mental health status, and the press showed their ignorance by rather cavalierly referring to Eagleton’s “shock therapy.” Since men are far less likely to seek treatment for mental health issues than women, Sen. Eagleton showed amazing self-awareness to seek help. He perhaps did not reveal more, and sooner because he understood the public perceptions, and the potential negative consequences of being open about mental health. Fast-forward 40 years to Rep. Jackson. Many would argue that we’ve come a long way on mental health awareness, but some would argue that point. Many health plans do not even bother to cover mental health, and if they do, it is covered for a limited number of sessions. Having mental health problems is still enough of a stigma for some professionals to pay for the care out of their pocket rather than have their mental health treatment be a matter of record. Comedians and others joke that when someone appears to behave erratically (or in some cases, extremely mindfully), they must be “off their meds.” The stigma remains, and it is stronger in the African American community than the majority community. Tell an African American friend or colleague about feeling down for more than a week or so (two weeks of down moods is one sign of depression), and he or she will tell you to pray on it.

sess the numbers to elect a U.S. president on their own, it is also true that African Americans are often the market that makes the difference in the bottom lines of many corporations. Equally true is the fact that they provide the margin of victory in many local and national elections. African American political and economic power did not rise from the dust of slavery without powerful forces working together, namely, the Black church, and the Black press. Without the combined efforts of these institutions, there would be no Barack Obama sitting in the White House today. His victory is a testimony to the advocacy of the stalwarts in the Black church—Martin Luther King, Adam Clayton Powell, Jesse Jackson, Malcolm X, Al Sharpton—and the Black press—John Russworm, Frederick Douglass, John Henry Murphy Sr., Robert S. Abbott, John Sengstacke, C B Powell, etc. Past NNPA Chairman Danny Bakewell Sr., a long-

Black press from OPED page 8 time civil rights advocate and publisher of the Los Angles Sentinel, reminds all who will listen that there is neither a Black politician nor corporate CEO who has attained his/her position without the help of the Black press. Countless speakers addressing the organization acknowledge that they would not be in their current position if it were not for the Black press. Therefore, it makes me wonder why the Obama campaign organizers cannot grasp the importance of the Black press in their campaign spending. Following is a scenario that could cause Obama to lose the elections. The voter ID campaign can cause Obama to lose his margin of victory in several states. While there may be nothing wrong with being required to have a voter ID, the Black press and the Black church must address this issue and provide information and encouragement to the Black community to overcome it. College students, African Americans, and especially the elderly, were unstoppable in getting to the voting booths in 2008 because they were determined to participate in an historic election. Without a valid voter ID many of those same voters will be turned away from the polls. The motivation that was there in 2008 is no longer there for the 2012 election. The miracle has already happened. A Black man is in the White House. The question now is, how do we keep him there? In face of strong opposition, Obama must attend to this segment of

The National Newspaper Publishers Association represents Black newspapers across the U.S. The organization has member papers in every state, reaching readers in cities, towns, metro areas, villages and hamlets across the country. Some publishers are proprietors and affiliates of local radio stations. The organization has an in-house advertising placement facility thereby maintaining control of placements and ensuring that the advertising messages are evenly and equitably distributed. Of the $740 million spent in 2008 by the Obama campaign, $235 million was spent on broadcast advertising. Approximately $1 million was spent with 200 NNPA newspapers across the country, averaging one ad per newspaper, which is tokenism at best. This year it is estimated that his campaign spending will exceed $1 billion. The Black press needs to be encouraged to get Obama re-elected. There needs to be a national campaign of advertising and editorials relating to the

less likely to seek help than their White counterparts, and while some of it may have to do with cost, some of it has to do with stigma. As widely as postpartum depression is known and discussed, African American women are only half as likely to seek help as White women. Study after study reports the underutilization of mental health services among African Americans. Women are far more likely to be diagnosed with mood disorders than men are, which puts another burden on men. Indeed, African American men with mood disorders are more likely to rely on informal support systems, or to forgo treatment than they are to seek help. Thus, a 2011 study from the School of Social Work at Michigan State University concludes that there is an unmet need for mental health services among African American men. It is as unfortunate that Rep. Jackson has been hospitalized for mood disorders as it would be if he were hospitalized for another illness. The fact that he has shared his mental health status may allow Americans, regardless of race or ethnicity, to come out of the closet about mental health.

from OPED page 8 “God will help you through it,” they will say. But the Lord helps those who help themselves, and sometimes the help needed won’t be found on your knees. Or, the response to manic episodes is “Child, you so crazy;” as if that is a badge of honor, not a sign that help is needed. Every indicator we have of mental health utilization suggests that African Americans are

Memorial held for filmmaker Hill-Greenwade „ Succumbs to rare cancer Memorial services were held this week for awardwinning filmmaker Kelly Robin Hill-Greenwade, who died July 11 after a nearly year-long battle with triple-negative breast cancer. She was 45. This is a rare form of cancer that most commonly affects African American women, who are three times more likely to develop the disease than White women. Hill-Greenwade was a resident of Carson, a successful entrepreneur, screen and stage actress, motivational speaker, author (”Destined for Greatness: 12 Keys to an Extraordinary Life”) and a top sales manager for com-

Micro Learning Center focuses on young males „ Approach combines home school with charter school BY JULIANA NORWOOD OW STAFF WRITER

Started in Los Angeles in 2011, the Micro Learning Center is a school based around a smallgroup learning environment designed to foster high academic engagement and performance among African American males, beginning initially in elementary school and ultimately expanding to middle school and high school.

“We have created a hybrid learning environment that combines the best practices and advantages of the individualized learning program found in some of the best home school curricula, where students excel at their own pace, with a small-group environment where they can benefit from the intensive hands-on instruction afforded by a ‘micro’ classroom,” said Lisa Jones Johnson, who founded the school after seeing her own son struggle in a traditional public school. She is investing her own resources to change the educational crisis African American boys are facing. The school is a private with low or no tuition, based on the individual financial circumstances of

the parents. “We are based on the philosophy that children learn best when in a small group environment. Boys in particular respond well to the handson learning, which is facilitated in this type of classroom,” said Johnson. The program is designed according to the California Virtual Academy (“CAVA”) curriculum, using the materials, lesson plans and other materials provided by CAVA. The school operates with five to seven students of the same grade level in each classroom. A master teacher, who has the primary responsibility for designing the school day, putting in place effective classroom management policies, directing and guiding the graduate students and teaching the core subjects of math and reading, is assigned to two classrooms each. Graduate students are involved as part of an ongoing research program with UCLA’s Graduate School of Education and the Black Male Institute and with other graduate students whose goal is to be classroom teachers working in the classroom as teaching assistants to the master teacher. One to two grades will be added each year through the fifth grade. In addition to providing a solid foundation in reading, social studies and language arts, the school puts a focus on math, science and green technology in recognition of the importance of those skills for the 21st century.

“The school is based around an approach to learning where each student is able to excel to the maximum of their potential and is not constrained based on other students’ progress or lack thereof, in a subject,” said Johnson. “But rather, each student is able to advance quickly in those areas where they excel and to obtain extra help as needed in those areas where they are more challenged.” The foundation recently received a grant from Phillips Charitable Organization (PCO) to further the school’s progress. “The PCO grant came when the Micro Learning Foundation faced a serious funding challenge. The generosity of PCO has allowed the foundation to continue its vision of making a difference in the lives of African American young men,” said Johnson. “PCO’s focus on urgent need and their ability to decide quickly was critical for this program,” she continued. The Micro Learning Center will have an open house for prospective parents on Saturday, July 28 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Boys & Girls Club of Hollywood located at 850 North Cahuenga Boulevard. The event is for parents of boys going into 2nd or 3rd grade in September. For more information on the Micro Learning Foundation, go to www.microlearningfoundation.org.

Dunbar Hotel

„ Renovation project serves as backdrop for annual festival BY CYNTHIA E. GRIFFIN OW MANAGING EDITOR

The 17th annual Central Avenue Jazz Festival, happening July 28 and 29 at the corner of 42nd Street and Central Avenue, will feature a stellar lineup of local, regional and national talent. The music starts both days at 11:30 a.m. and goes until 7 p.m. Saturday the Los Angeles Unified School District All-City High School Jazz band kicks off the action, and the day will include performances by the Diana Holling Band, Sons of Etta: Tribute to Etta James, the New Jump Blues featuring Antonio Fargas and Danielle Withers with the Gerald Wilson Orchestra finishing off the day. Central Avenue veteran entertainer Ernie Andrews starts the day on Sunday followed by Phil Ranelin, the Ray Goren Band and the event ends with Pancho Sanchez on stage. Admission to the festival is free, and the music takes place in the shadow of the historic Dunbar Hotel, which is currently in the midst of a multimillion-dollar renovation. Built in 1928 by dentists John and Vada Somerville, the facility was originally known as the Somerville Hotel, and played host to the first NAACP convention ever held on the West Coast the year it opened. The building, constructed entirely by Black laborers, contractors and craftsmen and financed by the African American community, would also serve as a hub of activity for the community during the era when the Jazz and music scene was hot and heavy in Los Angeles—the 1930s and 1940s. In the 1930s, a nightclub opened in the hotel and played host to such musical talents as Duke Ellington, Cab Calloway, Billie Holiday and Louis Armstrong, and among the people who stayed at the Dunbar were W.E.B. DuBois, Joe Louis, Ray Charles, Thurgood Marshall. It was also a gathering spot for the Jazz Age intellegencia, including Langston Hughes, Ralph Bunche and James Weldon Johnson. But in the 1950s when African Americans were allowed to stay in White-owned hotels in other parts of the city, the Dunbar’s existence as a hotel slowly began to decline and by 1987, the structure had been vandalized, covered in graffiti and become a haven for transients. That year, plans were announced to renovate the hotel and turn it into low-income housing. The hotel itself was transformed into singles and two additional housing complexes were built adjacent to it—Somerville I and II. But the nonprofit organization in control of the property struggled financially and the hotel fell into

11

disrepair again. The city was forced to take it over. Now the hotel is part of a $29.3 million private/public partnership called the Dunbar Village that consists of the renovation of all three structures with the goal of preserving local history, developing affordable housing and supporting job creation and training. Developer Thomas Safran and Associates partnered with the nonprofit Coalition for Responsible Community Development and as part of their joint agreement will ensure that the 30 students participating in the organization’s construction academy this year at Los Angeles Trade Tech have the opportunity to work alongside skilled craftspeople. About 158 temporary construction and 15 permanent jobs will be created by the Dunbar Village project, which broke ground in December. Additionally, the hotel will be reconfigured into 40 units of affordable senior housing, while the Somerville I and II will consist of 40 affordable family units. Other amenities will include a community room with communal kitchen, media lounge, billiards, table library/reading area, a laundry and fitness room. The project will also contain ground-floor retail spaces and provide a new public plaza on Central Avenue that will integrate a museum, Head Start program, and computer center into the mix.

Hollywood by Choice „ Comic-Con: “Django” actors defend slavery aspects BY GAIL CHOICE OW CONTRIBUTOR

If you’re a comic book fan and want to be the first to know what’s going on in the world of science-fiction, fantasy, action-adventure and horror when it comes to films and television, then make sure you put Comic-Con on your events calendar for next year. Comic-Con, now in its 43rd year, is the annual pop culture international convention held in San Diego over a four-day weekend that celebrates a world created out of man’s boundless imagination through comic books, games, action figures (dolls), movies and television. Along with panels, seminars, and workshops with comic-book professionals, there are previews of upcoming feature films, portfolio review sessions with top comic book and video game companies, and such evening events as awards ceremonies; the Masquerade, a costume contests; and the Comic-Con International Independent Film Festival.

ART, CULTURE & ENTERTAINMENT

Film and television producers, directors, writers, actors and actresses are on hand to promote their new films and returning television shows. This year’s Comic-Con proved to be particularly exciting. Panels for “The Walking Dead,” “Game of Thrones,” the final “Twilight” film as well as the HBO vampire drama, “True Blood,” had people lining up the night before to get in. Other popular events included previews of Peter Jackson’s “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,” Guillermo del Toro’s massive-monsters-versus-robots adventure, “Pacific Rim,” Marvel’s “Iron Man 3” and a new “Godzilla” film is in the works. Needless to say, the “Django: Unchained” crew was on hand to promote the upcoming film that debuts Christmas Day. According to the Hollywood Reporter, director Quentin Tarantino downplayed “Django” as a slave movie, saying he set out to make a spaghetti Western. As the panel evolved, the director and others talked of the story as a fairytale with an evil king having taken over a kingdom, a princess in exile and princes who are coming to save her. Kerry Washington (ABC’s “Slander”) stars as Django’s wife who has been taken into slavery. And during the panel discussion, Washington defended her character, calling her tough saying, “It’s in the humanity, when at that time in (the) eyes of the Constitution, they (Blacks) were only three-fifths of a human being. What makes her strong is her belief in love and that she is deserving of that love in a time where Black women weren’t even afforded the luxury of that fantasy.” But “Django” star Jamie Foxx took on the race aspect full force, talking of how he used his childhood to inform his character. “In Texas, it was racially charged to be honest with you,” he said of his formative years. “Being called ni---- as a young kid growing up, by grown people, it’s something I had to deal with, coming from the South. Having that done to me, I was able to grasp that in the script.” But no matter how Tarantino tries to dress it up “Django” is going to make some folks mad on Christmas Day. It ain’t gon’ be no “Song of the South.” Update: From Slave to Superhero—Anthony Mackie (“Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter”) is in negotiations to star alongside Chris Evans in the sequel to “Captain America: The First Avenger.” It is believed that Mackie will portray the Falcon,

one of mainstream comics’ first Black superheroes and perhaps its first American one. The character, Sam Wilson, is Harlem-based and had many street adventures with Cap in the 1970s comics, when he served as his partner. He derives his powers from a suit that allows him to fly and enhances his strength. He can also telepathically talk

Kerry Washington

to birds. In current comics, Falcon is a key player in many of Cap’s espionage adventures. The film will be released on April 4, 2014. Next year’s Comic-Con International in San Diego is set for July 18-21, 2013. Gail can be reached at gail@hollywoodbychoice.com.

“The Dark Knight Rises” also stars Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle; Tom Hardy as Bane; Oscar winner Marion Cotillard (“La Vie en Rose”) as Miranda Tate; and Joseph Gordon-Levitt as John Blake. Returning to the main cast, Oscar winner Michael Caine (“The Cider House Rules”) plays Alfred; Gary Oldman is Commissioner Gordon and Oscar winner Morgan Freeman (“Million Dollar Baby”) reprises the role of Lucius Fox—Wayne Enterprises’ brilliant inventor. “Although Lucius works for Bruce, he has been a mentor to him,” observes Freeman. “Compared to Lucius and Alfred Pennyworth, Bruce is still a relatively young man, so between the two of them, they try to keep his moral compass pointed in the right direction.” Charles Roven offers, “Lucius has always been the brains behind the tools that Bruce uses to become Batman, and he fulfills that function once again. But he has also grown to have great fondness for Bruce and, like Alfred; is trying to pull him out of the dark emotional place he’s been in.” It’s been eight years since Batman vanished into the night, turning, in that instant, from hero to fugi-

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction.

If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property.
