By Gloria Zuurveen Editor-in-Chief LOS ANGELES— From humble beginnings coming from a family of 13 siblings, Tamara G. Lewis knows what it means to share love at Christmas time and beyond. She often talks about her parents, Henry C. and Faye E. Lewis and how they raised all of them to help, not just their immediate family, but extended families as well. By extended, Lewis’ parents would often provide for the neighborhood children and give them a place to call home away from home. These are the memories that have propelled and compelled Lewis and her siblings along with a cadre of volunteers including Tony Manzitto, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, Topa Insurance Company, Lewis’ employer, brought his family with him to get involve and support “We Are Our Brother’s Keeper” a nonprofit organization Lewis founded 10 years ago and to assist with distributing food and thousands of backpacks filled necessity items for men and women on skid row at Christmas time. On Saturday, December 19, three bus loads filled with volunteers, who delayed their Christmas shopping on one of the busiest weekends of the year, to help Lewis and her family celebrate “We Are Our Brother’s Keeper” 10 year Please see Keeper, page 8

Hello Everyone, Happy Birthday Jesus on today, It is the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords birthday and we are to be grateful for him coming as He did. God incarnate in the flesh to redeem us from our state of sin. Because of Jesus obedience we can live again. He is the reason for the season and we should never get it twisted thinking about this season for any other reason other than to pay the utmost highest honor is to give God the praise and glorify His name for it is the reason that He came. Jesus, a Babe in a manager, subject to like passion as we are. In this this season, let us move forward in the will of God and give the same love God loved us with by giving it back in return for all of his goodness and mercy. Yes, it is mercy and grace that God gave us a place. A place to be at peace that passes all understanding why, but knowing that with God all things are possible to them that believe. We, in this season must express that belief by loving one another as we are made in the image of God therefore, we too must show the love of God the way he love us so much that he gave. We too ought to give what we have to others as Jesus said give and it shall be given to you. Press down shaken together and running over will men give unto your bosom. Receive today the gift of God.

Board Member Los Angeles Press Club

The Supreme Court Runs Away from Race George E. Curry George Curry Media Columnist The United States Supreme Court has always been reluctant to take on the issue of race with any sensitivity toward Blacks. In its famous Dred Scott decision, Justice Roger B. Taney, writing for the majority in 1857, said Blacks, had been “regarded as beings of an inferior order and altogether unfit to associate with the white race, either in social or political relations; and so far inferior that they had no rights which the white man was bound to respect; and that the Negro might justly and lawfully be reduced to slavery for his benefit.” That decision was not reversed until 1954 in Brown v. Board of Education. Today, the Supreme Court is not as blatantly racist as it was in the 1850s, but has essentially decided that in order to address the question of race, an institution must first try to find solutions that ignore race. Nowhere is that clearer than in its handling of affirmative action, including the pending case against the University of Texas. In its 1978 Bakke ruling, the court outlawed an affirmative action program at the University of California-Davis Medical School that reserved 16 of 100 seats for members of certain minority groups. Again in 2003, the court struck down a University of Michigan undergraduate program. In Gratz v. Bollinger, the court rejected an affirmative action program that provided a 20-point bonus to underrepresented ethnic groups, including Blacks, Latinos and Native Americans. The university used a 150-point scale, with 100 points needed to gain admission. However, the court upheld the university’s law school affirmative action program that considered race and ethnicity along with other factors. In sending Fisher back to the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals for additional review, the Supreme Court said, “On this point, the courts below were correct in finding that Grutter calls for deference to the University’s experience and expertise about its educational mission. However, once the University has established that its goal of diversity is consistent with strict scrutiny, the University must prove that the means it chose to attain that diversity are narrowly tailored to its goal. “…The reviewing court must ultimately be satisfied that no workable race-neutral alternatives would produce the educational benefits of diversity [my emphasis].“ Rather than addressing race directly, essentially the Supreme Court requires that race be first ignored when crafting an affirmative action program and only after that effort has failed, can universities use race as one of many factors in considering applicants. It doesn’t take a rocket or social scientist to figure out that’s a doomed approach. In fact, the state of Texas created its 10 Percent Plan – whereby UT-Austin automatically ad-

mits students in the top 10 percent of each Texas high school graduating class to the flagship university – was created in the wake of an adverse affirmative action ruling. The school’s original affirmative action program was struck down by the 5th Circuit of Appeals on March 18, 1996. The court held that “the University of Texas School of Law may not use race as a factor in deciding which applicants to admit in order to achieve a diverse student body, to combat the perceived effects of a hostile environment at the law school, to alleviate the law school’s poor reputation in the minority community, or to eliminate any present effects of past discrimination by actors other than the law school.” In the wake of that defeat, the Texas legislature devised the 10 Percent Plan. In its response to Fisher, the university listed numerous race-neutral approaches it has taken, none of which has returned its Black or Latino enrollment to earlier levels. And when the University of Michigan’s Law School program was upheld by the Supreme Court in 2003, the University of Texas moved to use race among seven factors it considered when evaluating students not admitted under the 10 Percent Plan. None of the factors, including race, were given any numerical value. Still, Fisher chose to sue solely because race was considered with the other factors. The university countered that Fisher, who did not graduate in the top 10 percent of her class, would not have been granted admission even if no affirmative action program existed. The New York Times published a story Dec. 9 with charts showing that in every state that imposed a ban on affirmative action – California, Michigan, Texas, Washington, and Florida – Black and Latino admission subsequently declined. Yet, even in the Fisher cases, justices were still quoting O’Connor, who said in Gratz, “It has been 25 years since Justice Powell first approved the use of race to further an interest in student body diversity in the context of public higher education. Since that time, the number of minority applicants with high grades and test scores has indeed increased… We expect that 25 years from now, the use of racial preferences will no longer be necessary to further the interest approved today.” That was 12 years ago. And if the Supreme Court keeps seeking ways to avoid directly confronting the issue of race, that 25-year goal is nothing but a pipe dream. George E.

EDUCATION & COMMUNITY NEWS Israel Matthews Sweeps Through New York for the Holidays

Photos by Malika Zuurveen Israel Matthews and his mother took time to sweep the city of New York over the Christmas break from school. (Upper left) Israel caught Matilda live on Broadway; they toured Time Square and Central Park (below). He said he had a fabulous, good time. He has been twice.

Maximize Study and Fun with CostEffective Technology for Your Student (BPT) - Today's youth are well -versed in transitioning their computers and phones from school to home, and futurists believe that will be even more necessary in coming years. Project Tomorrow's recent Speak Up Data shares that "Students in a blended learning environment (utilizing both physical books and online digital resources) are more likely to self-direct their learning outside of school." The best tech device options allow your student to learn and play anytime, anywhere and in any environment. The critical items to consider are devices that allow full access to learning applications; nine-plus-hour batteries; keyboards; easy connectivity; a backpack-friendly weight; powerful browsers that allow for fast-loading videos; access to school assignments and research tools. Cost-effective technology such as the Intel processor-powered Chromebook is being embraced by entire school districts for its fostering of streamlined education allowing faculty and IT administrators to communicate with students at school and at home. As a bonus, your student can also use a Chromebook to socialize with friends and engage in fun learning apps and popular gaming sites. "This is a whole new definition of what school looks like," notes Alice Keeler, author and Google for Education certified innovator. "Students can ask questions by posting to the stream in Google Classroom 24/7, (and) since other students have access to the stream, students are able to learn from and help each other." The ability to handle such multitasking is projected to serve youth well in the coming decades as technology evolves, according to a 2012 survey by the

Pew Research Institute. Fifty-five percent of respondents agreed that by 2020, "The environment itself will be full of data that can be retrieved almost effortlessly, and will be arrayed in ways to help people young and old navigate their lives." The Intel-powered Chromebook addresses that need for multitasking with several advantages over ARM process-based models. In a Principle Technologies Test Report last year, those advantages included a 57 percent longer battery life while web browsing; 46 percent less waiting to read a textbook or take notes online; 47 percent less waiting to do math homework online; 50 percent less waiting to create an English presentation; 46 percent less waiting to team up in science class; and 100 percent more frames per second while rendering an anatomy situation. That's partly why school district IT specialist and education speaker Kyle Pace calls it "the biggest no-brainer in education." "Schools must begin leveraging these tools to bring students into the world of working in the cloud, communicating, collaborating and creating on the web," he advises. "We can't afford not to give our students this type of access -- at school and at home." For more information on creating and collaborating with Chromebooks, check out Kyle Pace's blog.

CHURCH & COMMUNITY NEWS Kirk Franklin Surprises Walmart Christmas Shoppers, Gives Away $50 Gift Cards By Christine Thomasos From the Christian Post Reporter Kirk Franklin is spreading holiday cheer by rewarding strangers with gifts before Christmas. When his Losing My Religion album was out of stock in a Bowie, Maryland, Walmart the 45 -year-old gospel music recording artist decided to give shoppers and employees $50 Visa gift cards. "Excuse me, ladies and gentleman, y'all might not want to leave. I got a blessing for a lot of people and I feel like being in the giving mood," Franklin's voice crackled over the Walmart loudspeaker on Dec. 20, according to EEW magazine. "I feel like blessing some people this holiday season, so if you are in line and if you're about to spend some money, you're about to get a little bit of a blessing, because I feel like blessing some folk. "We bout to do something dope again in a minute," Franklin tweeted. "Going live. ... Putting smiles on faces this holiday. Don't believe me just watch." Although he was the generous giver, Franklin still managed to thank those who received his gifts. After he streamed the event on Facebook live he took to Instagram to show gratitude to the Walmart employees who helped him during the experience. "Thank you to the team at @Walmart store #1893," Franklin wrote. "We had fun today. You all do an amazing job!" Since some people did not activate gift cards, Franklin announced that he would be giving away more before Christmas. "The cards all worked!!!!! 7 people left without getting them activated so I'll post the 7 cards I'll give out somewhere before Christmas," he revealed. Franklin is promoting his 11th studio album, Losing My Religion which is spreading the message that people need to look beyond their religious beliefs.

"Religion is man's systematic approach to try to keep the rules. The problem is that when man's ideology and thought process gets involved, sometimes what he does is change the rules," Franklin previously told CP. "A lot of times the thoughts of religion are not all bibliocentric, sometimes they're cultural. Then it becomes cultural to say, 'it's wrong to do this and it's wrong to do that.' It becomes a misinterpretation of scripture. "I would never say that claiming you're a Christian is wrong. I understand that there is a human aspect of being able to identify people whether it's African American, Hispanic or Asian," he asserted. "But the definition doesn't define the relationship, meaning you can be married and still not know intimacy. You can be religious and not know relationship."

Ben Carson: Jesus Christ Is Greatest Christmas Gift and Hope By Stoyan Zaimov (CPR)-GOP presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson has posted a message to supporters reflecting on the Christmas season, and shared that for him, the greatest gift and the greatest hope is found in Jesus Christ. "During this season, I always try to remind myself of the greatest gift ‌ our Savior Jesus Christ," Carson said in a Facebook message, responding to a question asking "what is one of your favorite things about Christmas?" "I know that many of us spend the week leading up to Christmas frantically rushing around buying presents, our time occupied with 'how much to spend' on loved ones, rather than spending much time occupied with those loved ones. It's about relationship, not retail. We should remind ourselves of that more often," he added. Carson, a retired neurosurgeon, urged people to focus on pursuing everlasting things, rather than being distracted by the world. "It is good news, in pursuit of others as we share with those we encounter. Just as we are now, you

"That is why Christmas is special to me — I am reminded of the greatest of gifts every time I see my children and grandchildren's faces. Hope." Carson, who is a Seventh-day

Adventist, has spoken about his faith on a number of occasions in the past. In an interview earlier in December with The Washington Post he said that his denomination believes in "the entirety of the Bible," but he does not support some Evangelical positions, such as the belief in Hell as a physical place, or the coming rapture. "I don't believe there is a physical place where people go and are tormented, no I don't believe that," Carson said,

though he insisted that Heaven is indeed a real physical place where God resides. The Republican candidate sometimes posts Bible verses on his popular Facebook page, and late on Tuesday night shared with supporters Matthew 1:20-21, the passage where an angel tells Joseph that Mary is pregnant with a son to be named Jesus, asking him to take her as his wife. On the political side, Carson has been critical of GOP leadership in the face of the recently agreed to $1.1 trillion spending bill, which fully funds Planned Parenthood and allows more refugees to come into America. "I am angry but no longer shocked. Some of my colleagues running for President talk a big game. They give angry speeches but when the votes were counted none of them even tried to stop this deal. They take their special interest money, collect their paychecks and pensions and give us only rhetoric," Carson said about the Omnibus Appropriations Act, which was signed by President Barack Obama last week after passing both the House and the

HEALTH & COMMUNITY NEWS California Medical Board Accused of Illegally Targeting Black Doctors Corona, CA — Billy Earley is a Physician Assistant with over 18 years of experience. He speaks 3 languages and is an inventor, musician and author of the book, The Gods of the Bacteria, available on Amazon.com. However, when Earley recently opened his own clinic in Corona, California, within just six weeks, the California Medical Board served a complaint on his practice. Earley says the Medical Board tampered with the charts to illegally revoke his license and close down his clinic. Earley says he believes its because he is African American, and because he sued CVS and Walgreens pharmacies for calling his patients “Negritos” and faxing papers to him changing his name to “Billy N. Earley” (Nigger Earley). Earley is asking for the public to support him by send-

Box Out By Dean L. Jones, CPM Roughly, over the past decade the once prominent sugary laden cereals commonly sold in colorfully decorated cardboard boxes are steadily losing sales. Today, the formally incredibly popular cereals that nearly 100% of the baby boomer generation ate daily finds a definite need to stay relative. The big cereal makers once controlled the ready-to-eat foodstuff category by exploiting an emotional connection to their products for increasing sales. The box cereal market took advantage as a self-proclaimed breakfast item using a variety of witty tricks and treats. Such gimmicks included catchy musical jingles, iconic lifelike and cartoon mascots, celebrity endorsements, complimentary toy trinkets found inside the package and least we not forget collecting cereal box tops to mail off for a special prize, all of which no longer serve as viable marketing practices to sell these non-nutritional cereals. The large amount of processed sugar in a variety of box cereals is the same as having ice crème for breakfast and/or other dessert category foodstuff items. For instance, the processed sugar percentage by package content for some Kellogg's boxed cereals show Honey Smacks 55.6%, Post Golden Crisp 51.9%, Froot Loops Marshmallow 48.3%, Smorz 43.3%, Apple Jacks 42.9%, and Froot Loops Original 41.4%. Even though last year box cereal makers made $10 billion in revenue, still the foodstuff giants are making subtle product transformations to help re-establish consumer interest. Consumers are being lured away from box cereal in favor of all day breakfast menus offered by fast food restaurants and products touting to be healthy breakfast options like yogurt, granola bars, smoothies, and juicing. Speaking of juicing, the trend to juice fruits and vegetables for a liquid breakfast may not be the best alternative when it comes to avoiding a sugar overload. Ideally, it is far better to eat whole

Dean L. Jones fresh fruits and vegetables to get the benefits from fiber. [A variety of colors provide for a good mix of vitamins and minerals] Juiced fruits and vegetables are void of fiber because machines extract the juice and leave behind the pulp, which has the necessary fiber. Additionally, it takes more fruits to make juice than when eating whole fruit, which is when juicing causes calorie consumption to really add up. Although juiced calories from vegetables are a lot less than sweet fruits, a juice-only diet does not yield enough fiber or protein to make you feel full, so naturally more eating ensues to compensate for the empty feeling. Nonetheless, it is devastatingly evident that choosing to box out sugary foodstuff from a young person's diet is crucial toward starting the day off right. Added sugar is an inflammatory to the body and routinely consuming a nutritionally deficient breakfast opens the door for constipation, diarrhea, colds, headaches, indigestion, etc. Accordingly an easy to implement resolution for the New Year is living more SugarAlert! www.SugarAlert.com Dean is a marketing strategist with the Southland Partnership Corporation (a public benefit organization), sharing his view on mismanagement practices of packaged foods & beverages.

media problem when it comes to minority justice.” According to Earley, the Criminal Justice Research Center conducted an important study on wrongfully convicted people and estimated that 10,000 innocent people are convicted each year. Earley alleges that he is one of those thousands of peo-

ple, and that the Medical Board investigators made a lot of false reports about him and his staff. He is petitioning the Governor of California and the State Assembly to enact new guidelines to hold their investigators accountable for their actions and for the investigators to be more transparent with their investigation. “Racism and discrimination should never be involved in medicine or the World Health Organization,” he says. “But I and most of my African American patients are being exposed to this daily.” Early adds, “There are a lot of doctors who are being punished and their licenses are being revoked because of these police officers making these false reports and fabricating evidence. Most minority doctors cannot fight off these false

charges because attorneys are very expensive and they will consume all of the doctors’ savings in a few gulps. Please take a few minutes of your time to help Black doctors stay in business and stop the Medical Board from abusing their powers and illegally incriminating African American medical providers and innocent minorities who are trying to help their people.

BUSINESS & COMMUNITY NEWS Black Lives Matter Holds 'Black Xmas' Protests in Minnesota, California By David Bailey Black Lives Matter held demonstrations in Minnesota and California on Wednesday to protest police killings of unarmed blacks, dubbing the day "Black Xmas" to show it could affect the economy on one of the busiest shopping days of the year. "Black communities across the United States are taking brave actions to impede the flow of goods and commerce with peaceful protests to call for an immediate overhaul of the justice system," Black Lives Matter said in a statement posted on Facebook. "There will be no business as usual until we get accountability for our dead, and justice for the living," the group added. "Instead of buying gifts to fuel this system, Black Xmas is a day of action." The loosely organized movement grew out of protests over police killings of black men in Ferguson, Missouri, New York and other cities. Citing the lack of an indictment Monday related to the death of Sandra Bland, a black woman who died by hanging in an apparent suicide in her jail cell following a controversial traffic stop, Black

Lives Matter on Wednesday called for police accountability and the removal of grand juries in cases involving police shootings. In Minnesota, a demonstration at the Mall of America by protesters angered by the police killing of an unarmed black man in Minneapolis last month was swiftly broken up. Black Lives Matter demonstrators camped outside a Minneapolis police station for nearly three weeks after a police officer shot Jamar Clark, 24, on Nov. 15. The death of Clark,

who was unarmed, added fuel to an already heated debate over race and justice following several such killings across the United States in the past year. "It's been sleepless nights," Jamar's cousin, Alexander Clark, told Reuters at the mall demonstration just before police took him into custody, adding: "We are here for justice for my cousin." It was not immediately clear whether Clark had been formally arrested. After police and mall security dispersed the gathering, the protesters went to the Minneapolis-St. Paul Interna-

tional Airport where they briefly shut down roadways to both terminals, an airport spokesman said. Security checkpoints in Terminal 2 were briefly shut down to prevent protesters from moving into secure areas of the airport, the second busiest in the Midwest after Chicago's O'Hare. Meanwhile, California Highway Patrol said it arrested nine female protesters blocking southbound traffic on the 101 freeway near the San Francisco International Airport on Wednesday. Images of the demonstrators uploaded to social media showed them holding a sign demanding justice for Mario Woods, a black man suspected of a San Francisco stabbing, who police shot dead. Earlier, about 100 people had started to gather at the Minnesota mall, one of the largest in North America, despite a judge's warning that its owners could legally block the protest. Police and mall security quickly moved in, warning that any who did not leave would be arrested for violating mall policy against demonstrations and alerting shoppers that

that area of the mall was on lockdown. Some stores closed for about an hour. Mall officials said Bloomington police arrested four people. Black Lives Matter Minneapolis officials had promised to assemble "restraining order or not" and said in a Facebook post late Tuesday, "What happens next will tell us volumes about who we are as a society." Just before last Christmas, more than 1,500 Black Lives Matter protesters shut down part of the same mall as they demonstrated against grand jury decisions not to charge police officers in the killings in Ferguson and New York. The night before this year's Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade in New York, members of the group marched through Macy's Herald Square flagship store to show solidarity with the Minneapolis chapter.

NATIONAL/STATE & REGIONAL NEWS The U.S. Supreme Court Rehearing Affirmative Action: Here We Go Again! By Professor Kevin L. Antoine, JD Every few years U.S. Supreme revisits the issue of admitting African Americans and other under represented groups into college. This issue goes by many names, equal opportunity, affirmative action, diversity, inclusion, and most recently holistic admission. The U.S. Supreme Court has let stand the practice of colleges using many factors when reviewing the credentials of students applying for admission. These factors include, gender, geography, family income, disability, gender identity, LGBT, military status, language spoken at home and race just to name some of them. However the only factor that ends up in a lawsuit when a white applicant is denied admission is race, more specifically, the race of an African American student that was admitted. I cannot think of any affirmative action lawsuits where a white applicant that was denied admission because the college admitted another student who was a military veteran, or gender identity, or disability. No other population in America is so heavily burdened with the task of enjoying life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness than African Americans. This historical burden stems all the way back to 1776, the birth of the nation when white colonist won their freedom from Great Britain, but denied freedom to their African slaves. In 1807 America abolished the international slave trade, however the institution of slavery continued in America for another 58 years. It took a Civil

ford B Hayes as president. Hayes granted former confederates the right to hold political offices in the south. In short order southern states began to turn back the clock on all of the equal opportunities afforded African Americans under reconstruction. Sounds familiar. Here we go again! One hundred years after President Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation, President Kennedy sent his civil rights bill to the Congress. It took a civil rights movement and the assassination of a president to

Professor Kevin L. Antoine War, passage of the 13th amendment, and the assassination of a president to end slavery in America. After passage of the 13th Amendment, the newly freed population, though free, could not read or write, had no schools, housing or healthcare. The great emancipator Abraham Lincoln established the Freedmen’s Bureau, the first federal government office with oversight of education, housing, employment and healthcare. These programs exist today as agencies in the executive branch of the federal government (The Departments of Education, Housing, Labor, Health and Human Services). Though first establish to help African Americans, these federal agencies now assist all Americans. By 1876 reconstruction ended with the election of Ruther-

Death of Florida Woman Probed after Her Removal from Hospital By Letitia Stein TAMPA, FLA.—The death of a black woman who was forcibly removed by a police officer from a Florida hospital where she had sought treatment is under investigation by state and local authorities, the chief of police in Blountstown, Florida, said on Wednesday. Barbara Dawson, 57, had refused to leave Calhoun Liberty Hospital early on Monday after she was discharged by her physician from its emergency department, police said. Blountstown is about 50 miles (80 km) west of Tallahassee. A preliminary autopsy report showed Dawson died from a blood clot in her lungs that was due to morbid obesity, Police Chief Mark Mallory said in a statement. The Tallahassee Democrat newspaper reported that relatives said Dawson felt she needed more medical care. Reuters could not immediately reach officials at Calhoun Liberty Hospital or Dawson's family attorneys for comment. The hospital called police and when Dawson refused to leave she was taken into custody on charges of trespassing and disorderly conduct, police said. She was handcuffed and escorted from the hospital but collapsed at the door of a patrol car, police said. According to a statement by police, Dawson was readmitted and appeared to be alive when she left police custody, but she later died in the hospital's emergency department. Relatives and state leaders of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored Peo-

Barbara Dawson ple (NAACP) questioned the way she was treated by the hospital and police. "Did this reach the level of negligence that makes it become a criminal case?" said Dale R. Landry, regional vice president for the NAACP Florida State Conference, adding that a second opinion on the autopsy findings may be requested. Dawson's death comes at a time of increased scrutiny of police conduct and the use of force by law enforcement, particularly against minorities. Blountstown police said they would continue an internal investigation and that they have requested an independent probe by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. "We all grieve when we lose a community member," Chief Mallory said in a statement, noting that Blountstown is "a small, close-knit community."

pass the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Sound familiar? Here we go again! In the Fisher v. the University of Texas Law School at Austin case, the Supreme Court will decide if race can continue to be one of many factors colleges can consider when reviewing student applications for admissions. Here’s the rub. For centuries in America, the law made it unlawful for a “whole race of people”, African Americans, to go to school, to learn, to read, to write, add and subtract. Now once again the law will decide whether

race is a factor for keeping African Americans from obtaining a college education. Here we go again! Professor Kevin L. Antoine, JD is the Legislative Director for the American Association for Access Equity and Diversity. He is the Assistant Vice President for Diversity & Inclusion/Professor of Health Law and Policy at the State University of New York Downstate Medical Center located in Brooklyn.

Civil Rights Activist Ozell Sutton Dead At 90 By The Associated Press ATLANTA (AP) — Ozell Sutton, a longtime civil rights activist who was associated with the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., has died, his daughter said Sunday. He was 90. Alta Sutton told The Associated Press that her father died at Saint Joseph Hospital in Atlanta on Saturday. She said the family had celebrated his birthday nearly a week ago. She said her father “went peacefully.” “He was a wonderful husband and father,” she said. “They don’t make daddies like him. He was a gem, a rare pearl. He was such a tremendous force. He lived a great life.” Ozell Sutton marched for equal rights alongside King in Selma, Alabama, in 1965 and was

Ozell Sutton present at the Memphis hotel where King was assassinated in 1968. In 2012, Ozell Sutton earned a Congressional Gold Medal as one of the first AfricanAmericans to serve in the United States Marine Corp. He was also director of the U.S. Justice Department’s Community Relations Service in Atlanta until he retired in 2003. Ozell Sutton also served

as the general president of the national service fraternity Alpha Phi Alpha. He worked for worked for Gov. Winthrop Rockefeller and as the director of the Governor’s Council on Human Resources. He was a journalist for the Arkansas Democrat Gazette. He also played a role in helping enroll nine African-American students at Little Rock Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas, in 1957. Alta Sutton said her father was a gregarious character who was a musician and physics major. “It’s seems like the longer you have them, the harder it is to let them go,” she said of her father. “He’s run the race and he has served.” Alta Sutton said funeral arrangements are pending.

ART&ENTERTAINMENT NEWS Bill Cosby Sues Model Beverly Johnson for Defamation By Piya Sinha-Roy Comedian Bill Cosby sued model Beverly Johnson on Monday, saying she defamed him by accusing him of drugging her, and making her the eighth accuser he has filed suit against this month. Johnson is among more than 50 women who have come forward in the past year with claims that Cosby had drugged, and in numerous cases, sexually assaulted them in incidents dating back decades. Cosby's suit charges that Johnson, a leading model in the 1970s and '80s and one of his most high-profile accusers, defamed him and intentionally inflicted emotional distress. He is demanding a jury trial, court documents filed in Los Angeles Superior Court showed. Cosby representative Monique Pressley said in a statement that "Mr. Cosby states that he never drugged defendant and her story is a lie." Cosby, 78, has repeatedly denied wrongdoing and has never been criminally charged. Many of the alleged incidents occurred decades ago and the statute of limitations for prosecuting them expired long ago. Last week, Cosby filed a lawsuit in Massachusetts, suing seven of the accusers for defamation. The seven women had filed suit against Cosby last December accusing him of assault, libel

and slander. Johnson, 63, wrote a detailed article in Vanity Fair in November 2014 about her encounter with Cosby in the mid-1980s, saying she was invited by the comedian, best known for his role in the 1980s sitcom "The Cosby Show," to his home where he allegedly drugged her coffee. "In cases of rape and abuse, abusers will do whatever they can to intimidate and weaken their victims to force them to stop fighting," Johnson said in a statement. She later gave interviews to news programs including ABC's "Good Morning America" and "Nightline" reiterating her claims. Cosby's lawsuit says he had never spent any time alone with Johnson at his home. The comedian asked for an injunction requiring Johnson to retract her public

statements and remove a chapter on him from her memoir. The wave of allegations against Cosby have scuttled the comedian's acting projects and live shows in the past year. Court documents unsealed in July showed that Cosby testified in a 2005 deposition that he had obtained Quaaludes pills with the intent of giving the sedatives to young women in order to have sex with them. The admission during testimony in a civil case brought by a former Temple University employee, Andrea Constand, who alleged that Cosby tricked her into taking drugs before he sexually assaulted her. That case was settled for an undisclosed sum in 2006. (Reporting by Piya Sinha-Roy; Editing by Bill Trott)
