MISSING!

Talibah Islam and Typhenie Johnson are both missing and both dated the same man, Chris Revill. Hadiyah Islam was watching television when she saw the story of Typhenie Johnson and her boyfriend, Chris Revill. She said she sat up in amazement because Revill was the same man that her sister dated when she became missing a decade

ago. “When I first saw the story, I was shocked, felt hatred and then sadness,” she recalled. “If they had listened to us 10 years ago.” Instead as Revill sits in jail with a $50,000 bond, on kid-

Presence urged at school board meeting Students at Dallas’ South Oak Cliff High School are literally begging for assistance from anyone who can help solve the numerous problems they face daily. Conditions at the school have continued to be a source of contention for students, teachers and parents as revelations of asbestos, mold, contaminated water, inadequate air and

heating and a constant change of leadership have created low morale. Joined by Min. Dominique Alexander of the Next Generation Action Network, several students recently pleaded for changes. “Although the school board promised funding it is only a fraction of what is needed to build a new school Please see STUDENTS, page 2

WWW.TEXASMETRONEWS.COM Board meeting, Thursday, October 27, 6p.m. at 2700 Ross Avenue. “South Oak Cliff High School students have endured so much such as contaminated water flowing through the pipes and this is a major concern,” said the Minister, adding that community organizations have worked hard to address this issue facing the students everyday like “termites spilling over into the hallways, asbestos, heating and cooling issues, gas leaks, even an electrical fire following the last student protest.” At a town hall meeting at Friendship-West Baptist Church, Dallas City Councilman Casey

Thomas and Minister Danielle Ayers encouraged citizens to become involved by attending meetings. Attendees were encouraged contact elected officials, and stand with parents, students, teachers and alumni of South Oak Cliff. It is important to note that there are a number of pregnant teens attending the school and the water one student said could be detrimental to unborn children. A water drive will be held next month at the school but organizers are hopeful that the students will be moved to another --Staff reports building by then.

napping charges in the Johnson case, he refuses to give any informaiton that may lead to finding the two women. The Next Generation Action Network’s Min. Dominique Alexander met with the families of Talibah Islam and Typhenie Johnson to express his support and encourage the Fort Worth Police Department to continue investigating both cases and also encouraged the FBI and state authorities to get involved. Islam, who is 30, dated Revill for two years, according to her sister, and they have an 11-yearold son. Johnson, who has been missing since October 12, 2016, is 25 and her twin brother, Asher, says he has family that has traveled to Texas to help search for her. No reward has been announced for information about the whereabouts of both women, but Ms. Islam said she will work with the Johnson family and hopefully something will break soon. A fund has been set up to assist the families.Anyone with information should immediately contact the police. See more at www.texasmetronews.com.

CREDO OF THE

1397 1 1Year $45.00 0-1397 YearSubscription Subscription BLACK $45.00 PRESS

The Black Press believes that America can best lead the world away from racial and national antagonisms when it accords to every person, regardless of race, color or creed, full human and legal rights. Hating no person, fearing no person, the Black Press strives to help every person in the firm belief that all are hurt as long as anyone is held back.

By Dr. J. Ester Davis Jack Greenberg, a Jewish lawyer who leaded up the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund Inc., for 23 years, died recently. He was 91. The New York Times lauded him as “one of the most powerful white figures in a movement.� I am sure this name sounds familiar to you, especially if you were around during the civil rights era in the 60’s or have read everything you could on the movement, including the struggle for voting rights. Over the years, in this column I have written other articles with this same title. The first legal genius article was about E. Brice

DAVIS: Legal Genius Series

Cunningham, a living legend, who was a partner in one of America’s most prestigious law firms, Finch, Lockridge and Cunningham; and the second article, Judge L. A. Bedford, Dallas’ first black judge (Requiem for a Jurist 1926-2014). These frontier genius’ are so very important to our history and they should not be forgotten or casually tossed aside. I was Brice Cunningham’s legal assistant for three years, modeling part time, and remained a part of the legal world after moving to corporate America. Young attorneys like Sam Hudson, Royce West, Craig Washington, Marcus Ranger and others, came to the firm looking for jobs and advice. These were all black attorneys. The noted attorneys of that day were Joe Lockridge, D. B. Mason, L. Clifford Davis, Fort Worth, Fred Finch, and W. J. Durham. The work was long, abundant, audacious and demanding. W. J. Durham and Thurgood Marshall were classmates, which gets me

back to Jack Greenberg and the Texas connection. The nucleus of the Black legal network in the 60’s was Thurgood Marshall. He collaborated with and delegated the civil rights workload across the country. This generation clearly had a plan with vision, opportunity driven and they worked it. For example, one evening while working late in the office, the phone rang. It was Thurgood Marshall, calling from New York, looking for Brice. The instructions were simple. “Go down to Nacogdoches, Texas, and get so-and-so out of jail.� Jack Greenberg is deemed the last survivor of a renown legendary Civil Rights Legal Team. He is the last surviving member of the original legal team assembled by Thurgood Marshall, the founding director-counsel of the legal defense fund and later the first African American Supreme Court Justice. This team of seven broke down barriers and set examples in the matter of law that are still

researched in law libraries around the globe, with voting rights at the very top. These battles they fought... and won...leaving a legacy of legal battles for people all over the world. Did I mention voting rights? In all, Jack Greenberg was before the Supreme Court in more than 40 civil rights cases. Many prominent attorneys have been a part of the Legal Defense Fund, including Barack Obama, who in one case was co-op attorney on his path to the presidency. When Thurgood Marshall joined the federal bench, he named Jack Greenberg to succeed him as director of the defense fund now up to 25 attorneys. Jack Greenberg found time to write a book about his odyssey entitled “Crusaders in the Courts: How a Dedicated Band of Lawyers Fought for the Civil Rights Revolution.� Is there a second generation at bat?

SMITH: Temperament and consciousness As I sat in Judge Elizabeth Frizell’s courtroom in the Frank Crowley Criminal Court Building, there seemed to be a feeling of excitement, anticipation and even nervousness. Those emotions are not uncommon in courtrooms but today seemed really special. I had heard about Star Court and decided to find out what was really happening. I knew Star Court wasn’t something that was outlined in a judge’s job description and based on what I heard, the many positive things about the Star Court Diversion Program, was worthy of looking into. The program, initiated by Judge Frizell, focuses on some key areas: prostitution, drug rehabilitation and mental health. The Fall 2016 class consisted of four women who had their run-ins with the law. But on this day they were all smiles as they shared their testimonies. Through Star Court these wom-

There were tears of joy and looks of pride. Heck, I felt proud of the ladies and their supportive families. In coming weeks, we will share more about the program and its graduates and the great work that Judge Frizell is doing. Here is a judge who truly has the temperament and consciousness!

HALL: What Price is your Vote Worth?

Quit Playin’ By Vincent Hall

While America’s “virtues” are being “Trumped” by a loud-mouthed, government subsidized billionaire and his buffoonish behavior, there really is something serious to be considered about the 2016 elections. I received a political mailer from Dallas County Commissioner John Wiley Price, which made me forget for a scintilla of a second who Donald Trump is. On the forward side, there were several, now deceased former Supreme Court Justices and they were juxtaposed to some of the landmark human rights and civil rights cases they oversaw. Next to these jurists are pictures of the plaintiffs. Just imagine the nine “Scottsboro Boys” who were saved from death row by a court overseen by Chief Justice Charles E. Hughes and court in the same frame and visual reference. To hell with all of that foolishness that flows from Donald Trump’s fountain of unforgivable ignorance and unprecedented insolence. The United States Constitution was created by rich White men for rich White men and the rest of America has the Supreme Court as our only salvation. But rather than offer some grand commentary on what Commissioner Price conjectured in his mail piece, let me share the lesson(s) he taught in a two-sided 8 X 11 glossy.

 Dred Scott v. Sandford, 1857 (7-2 decision) Chief Justice Taney Denied citizenship to African American slaves.   Prigg v. Pennsylvania 1842 (6-3 decision) Chief Justice Roger Taney Reversed the lower court decision to convict slave catcher Edward Prigg who violated the Fugitive Slave Act   Plessy v. Ferguson,  1896 (7-1 decision) Chief Justice Melville Fuller

Reversed the wrongful conviction of nine Black men (The Scottsboro Boys) sentenced to death for an allegation of rape that was recanted by one of their accusers.   Korematsu v. United States, 1944 (6-3 decision) Chief Justice Harlan F Stone Upheld internment of Japanese Americans during World War II, regardless of their citizenship status.   Brown v. Board of Education, 1954 (9-0 decision) Chief Justice Earl Warren Sep-

Upheld “separate but equal” segregation laws. “A Negro has no right that the White man is bound to respect.”

arating black and white students in public schools is unconstitutional.   Hernandez v Texas 1954 (9-0 Decision) Chief Justice Earl Warren  Mexican Americans and all other racial

groups in the United States must be afforded equal protection under the 14th Amendment.   Miranda v. Arizona, 1966 (5-4 decision) Chief Justice Earl Warren Prisoners must be advised of their rights before being questioned by police.   Loving v. Virginia,  1967 (9-0 decision) Chief Justice Earl Warren Invalidated state laws that prohibited interracial marriage.   Roe v. Wade, 1973 (7-2 decision) Chief Justice Warren E. Burger Women have a constitutional right to an abortion during the first two trimesters.   Bush V. Gore 2000 (5-4 decision) Chief Justice William Rehnquist Decided a presidency in which the national vote was essentially tied.   And this doesn’t include the recent travesties like Citizens United v. FEC or the gutting of the Voting Rights Act in 2013. Y’all better Quit Playin’ and vote.   Donald Trump is a joke but the dangers that come with him are no laughing matter. The price you could pay if he selects the next few justices is more than you can probably afford!

Samuel L. Brown It is with a heavy heart, I announce the passing of one of the Chamber’s staunchest advocates and Board member Mr. Samuel L. Brown. Throughout his over 30 years of service for the Chamber, he served as Chairman as well as countless other pivotal positions establishing programs and relationships that have stood the test of time. Sam, as he was known, continued to support the organization throughout in immeasurable ways. His leadership and communication demeanor will be missed but his legacy of service and commitment to the Dallas Community at large is profound and provides an example we can all live by. Mr. Samuel (Sam) L.

Brown will be missed. Please extend your condolences and prayers to the family during this time. -Darren L. James Dallas Black Chamber of Commerce

Mr. Brown passed on October 16, 2016. He graduated Cum Laude from Prairie View A&M University in 1964 where he obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering. He furthered his education and attended

Southern Methodist University in 1969 where he received his Master’s Degree in Electrical Engineering. In 1976, he pursued his lifelong dream of becoming an entrepreneur and founded BMA Systems, Inc. In 1978, Samuel was initiated into the Theta Alpha Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc., where he had the distinction of being a Life Member. A civic leader in the community, he was elected Chairman of the Dallas Black Chamber of Commerce where he served on the Board of Directors for over 20 years. Samuel is survived by his loving and devoted wife of 45 years, O’Shelia Moore; his son, Samuel Darnell (Darnasha) Brown Sr.; grandson, Samuel Darnell Brown, Jr; sister, Glenda Smith Gibson; brothers, Steve Smith and Anthony Brown and mother-in-law, Mrs. Jimmie M.

A Night of Inspiration & Gospel

Week of October 26, 2016

WWW.TEXASMETRONEWS.COM

By Dr. Felicia N. Shepherd FiNeSse Enterprises, LLC

Photos by Eva D. Coleman As the 2016 State Fair of Texas slowly came to a conclusion, fair goers have numerous stories to share about their experiences. One of the many stories should include the Night of Inspiration & Gospel Concert held on the Chevy stage on October 20, 2016. Hosted by Keith Solis & Shannon Thomas, Smooth R & B 105.7, this gospel concert brought old and new gospel music together

all on one stage. The event kicked off with the DFW Unity Choir singing and praise dancers using their God given talent through the art of dance. The various artists brought their own unique style of praising the Lord to each song that was sung. Mr. Michael Bethany took the audience to church with his hand-clapping, feet-stomping song “Never Leave Us.” You could not help but get out of your seat and raise your hands in praise with Mr. Bethany’s performance. After rocking and clapping with Mr. Bethany, Ms. Angela Blair comes to the stage

and sings a song my grandmother would have been singing along with her. “For Every Mountain” touched the elders that were in the audience and Ms. Blair’s amazing soprano voice took me to the mountain in praise and worship. Witnessing attendees waving their hands and lifting their eyes to the heavens, her angelic voice touched the spirit of those in attendance.

Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity C.C. Russeau Black and Gold Gala

In between the acts, we cannot overlook the comedic anecdotes from THE Pastor Fred. Pastor Fred reminded me of a deacon in the church that says what’s on his mind in a manner that will have you wondering should you laugh or be offended. When the final act was being introduced, I saw so many young people approaching the stage before his name was announced. Grammy Nominee and multiple Stellar, Dove, and Billboard Music Award Winner Travis Green came to the stage and blessed the souls of all his voice touched. Seeing young people worshiping and praising God always brings a smile to my face. In these times of racial discourse, to see various groups praising God together was a beautiful sight to see. Black/ White, Republican/Democrat, Straight/LGBT felt nonexistent during this brief one-hour concert. The surprise of the evening was a special performance from Tamela Mann! This concert was an inspiration to all those who sat in attendance as well as those who were walking around eating turkey legs and corn dogs, and listening from a far.

What is wrong with my husband?

Five years into my marriage my husband moved himself into the downstairs bedroom. The initial reason given was, “He didn’t want to disturb the babies” (including a newborn) with his late-night arrival, and early departures for work. Some months later, after a “marriage check-up” with our pastor, he confessed to me out of euphoria! He admitted that he had started smoking, you know; one of those things I never wanted in my life! Smoking is one of those “THINGS,” you know, those things you list as true deal-breakers, with regard to dating and relationships…FROM THE START! He admitted that he knew how strongly I felt about this, but he figured it was no longer a deal-breaker since we are married! On the one hand, I don’t see using this makes me feel as a justification for divorce. On the other hand, I feel betrayed, belittled, devalued, and bullied into being with someone I would NEVER had been with, if given the choice of him as a smoker.

Signed, He has made a liar out of me! Dear “He has made a liar out of me,

Holy hot water hose, you’re infuriated! I can see the flames flickering from your email. Luckily, I’m here to distinguish this dilemma. Lawd knows what would happen, had you not reached out for help. Quick, duck, here comes a splash of reality–this ain’t about you, it’s about him. Him and his habit, he owns an addiction. I know you feel betrayed tossed and lost in the hot sauce, but the reality is, we’re talking

about a serious dependency, a desire that requires you to fully satisfy by any means necessary. Do you wanna know how I know? I smoked for over 20 years before I could quit. Your body craves for the nicotine. That’s why people stand outside in a cold, snow, icy rain to take a smoke. As a non-smoker, what you don’t know is, smoking can be soothing, a stress reliever, it relaxes you. If you’ve never struggled with a compulsion, you just don’t get it. It’s his choice to make. He won’t win unless he’s all in. So, encourage your husband to make up his mind to quit smoking because it’s the healthy thing to do. Remind him you’d like for him to be around a long time for you and the kids, blah, blah, la-dee-da…you know what I’m talkin’ bout. Ask your doctor for brochures and suggested websites to share with him. Tell him you want him back upstairs, now! Yes, you’re right, smoking is a game changer, but you two can commit to get through this. Stop, read that again, I said you two. Handle your husband’s addiction with patience and tolerance. Don’t nag him, offer support. This will take time. I recall a conversation I had with a loved one who had battled a drug problem. During her last days, I asked, “why didn’t you ever just quit?” Her answer, “for every time you think I didn’t, I did times a million.” I assure you he’s trying, that’s what many smokers do, more than you and the rest of us non-smokers will ever know.

UNCF leads National Campaign to promote HBCU Historic Preservation Program

Today UNCF launched #PreserveHBCUs a 24-hour social media campaign to urge the Senate to provide at least $5 million for the HBCU Historic Preservation Program, as passed by the House, before Congress adjourns. Taking place during National Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) Week, this day of action engages HBCU alumni, stakeholders and supporters to help preserve over 700 historic buildings on HBCU campuses. “HBCUs have a significant place in American history and provide incredible value and values to minority and lowincome students, and to the communities in which they reside,” said Cheryl Smith, UNCF senior vice president of public policy and government affairs. “The HBCU Historic Preservation Program serves an essential purpose to HBCUs, which have a special place in the fabric of American history, culture and education. We look forward to working with the Senate to ensure final passage before the 114th Congress adjourns.”

Cheryl L. Smith

UNCF Senior Vice President Public Policy and Government Affairs

No federal funds have been provided since 2009 for the restoration of historic buildings at HBCUs; however, this year there is a chance to secure funding in the FY 2017 budget. Last month, the House unanimously passed H.R. 295, a bill that would re-authorize $10 million annually through 2023 for the HBCUs Historic Preservation Program, and the Clyburn amendment to appropriate $5 million for FY 2017, but no funding has been recommended by the Senate. “Thanks to Congressman James E. Clyburn (D-SC), a proud HBCU alumnus, this important bill is moving one step closer to the finish line, but further action is desperately required,” said UNCF President and CEO, Dr. Mi-

chael Lomax. “HBCUs are indeed national treasures and we invite everyone to join us today in supporting the restoration of more than 700 historic buildings on HBCU campuses.” HBCU historic preservation was a signature UNCF initiative from 1995 through 1999, when UNCF partnered with the National Park Service to support the rehabilitation of historic structures on 10 HBCU campuses. Historic preservation remains a UNCF strategic priority today as several HBCUs this year are celebrating or approaching 150 years of existence. Here’s how you can join UNCF to #PreserveHBCUs:  Visit the #PreserveHBCUs Campaign information page  Download our Social Media Toolkit  Download our #PreserveHBCUs Graphic  Download and share our #PreserveHBCUs Save-the-date flyer  Download and share our official campaign launch flyer
