Year Of The Tiger: Black Tech

Professionals Meet For Success By Ahliyah S. Chambers Contributing Writer The National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE), National Black MBA Association (NBMBAA) and Black Tech Link, all San Diego based organizations, co-hosted a networking mixer to kick off Black History Month 2022. The “Year of the Tiger” Kickoff Mixer also launched a month-long awareness campaign in the urban inner city to encourage more Blacks to pursue college and careers in Tech, as well as to bring more awareness to inequity within the Tech Industry. Over a hundred people gathered at the 3167 Gallery on Tuesday evening to connect and learn from San Diego Black professionals, executives, and entrepreneurs. The audience included a diverse range of Black professionals from software engineers to yoga instructors. As a part of the mixer, several speak-

Unstable. Criminal. Im­pov­erished. For decades, the Black family has been denigrated as dysfunctional. The evolution of radio, film, and t e l e v i s i on i n t h e 20th centur y only amplified demeaning images, providing “proof ” to white Americans of Black inferiority and a justification for denying them their rights. When those malicious im­ - ages first started to proliferate, Black Americans found an effective way to resist. They seized upon the camera to represent themselves. Seemingly a “magical instrument” for “the displaced and marginalized,” as critic bell hooks

writes, the camera provided “immediate intervention” to counter the images used

to deny them their rightful place in American society.

A record of everyday Black Americans In 2013, a historian named Frank Morrill, discovered over 230 p or t r ait s of p e o ple of color among the 5,300 glass negatives of photographer William Bullard that he owns. Bullard, a w h it e n e i g h b or of most of the people he photographed in Worcester, made these portraits from 1897 to 1917. Their images defy stereotypes of dysfunction by portraying the vitality of Black family life just a few decades after emancipation. See PORTRAITS page 2

There are nearly 1.1 million Black women in California. However, according to the report, more than 75% of Black households in the state are headed by single Black mothers and 80% of Black households have Black Women breadwinners. The goal of the State of Black Women in California report is to focus in strategic and collaborative ways to expand on the needs and concerns of Black Women and Girls in California, they explain. Authors who contributed to the study each spent time diving into the details of their essays. The discussion was co-moderated by Regina

titled, “The Balancing Act and the Support Needed.” She writes about the near circus act Black women perform on a regular basis maintaining their families and careers.

“There are several ways to unleash the promise of the next generation of Black leaders. It can be policy-focused as well as interpersonal in nature,” she wrote.

“This balancing act has gone way past the breaking point. With nearly 80% of Black mothers with children under six participating in the workforce, the highest workforce participation of any racial/ethnic group, the challenges facing their ability to remain in the workforce remain,” she wrote.

Shakari Byerly, of Evitarus was the other co-moderator. She questioned, “Why is work and family along with employment and earnings important issues for Black women?” Jonie Ricks-Oddie, Director of the UCI Center for St atistical C onsulting, answers that in her essay

Symbols of resilience and aspiration At the time Bullard made his portraits, slaver y and family separations remained a traumatic memory for many of his subjects. As a result, family portraits were especially significant. They testified to the achievements of Black Americans and the resilience of their kinship networks. In 1900, Rose, Edward and Abraham Perkins posed for Bullard in their Worcester backyard. Born into slavery in South Carolina, the siblings and other family members had settled on former

She told the audience, “There are a lot of things employers can do to improve our quality of life. Some of that can be creating cultural awareness of the needs of families.

in California. Our Nation has a long history of racial trauma and discriminatory behavior toward Black students. The urgency of closing the pay and wealth gap makes Black girls’ path to college particularly alarming due to the role Black women often play in being the primary breadwinner in Black households,” she wrote.

Dr. Colette Harris Mathews, Founder/Principal DEIB C onsu lt ant at Har r is Mathews Consulting wrote about the challenges Black women face becoming the most educated group in America. Her essay is entitled, “Education’s Part in the Disruption of Success for Black Women.”

Carlene Davis spoke about the needs of aging Black women.

A backlash of terror against the state’s Black population once again ushered in the rule of white supremacists. Caught in the vice of declining cotton prices and an economic depression, Edward lost his land. With their hopes for new lives in the South demolished, Edward and his wife Celia made the decision to seek a more complete freedom in the North.

“So often we are behind the scenes doing the work to help all communities thrive but there is still a need to focus on our specific issues to ensure there is intentionality to making sure change happens for us and our communities. That is why it was imperative to have this report center around the intersection of gender, race and location,” Griffin added. The report can be found at www.cablackwomenscollective.com.

They made their way to Worcester in 1879; soon Rose, Abraham and many other family members followed. As refugees of terrorism and economic disaster, the siblings, in their portrait, embody triumph and perseverance, and commemorate the tenacity of family ties that stayed intact through slavery, emancipation and migration.

A poster on the wall commemorates President Theodore Roosevelt’s visit to the city in 1902, suggesting the family’s engagement in politics and local affairs. In this tableau of respectability and stability, the Dillons defy nearly every stereotype of the dysfunctional Black family. Although they labored for white families – Thomas as a coachman and Margaret as a domestic servant – and had yet to achieve middle-class security, their portrait brims with aspiration.

Conveying respectability and stability

When the Dillons and others posed for Bullard, lynchings of Black men were spiking in the U.S. Postcards of lynchings were widely circulated, along with “humorous” postcards and cartoons featuring Black men stealing chickens and watermelons.

As Black men battled claims of their inherent criminality, Black women fought a dualistic stereotype – that of the promiscuous “Jezebel” or servile “Mammy.” Black women fought these images by presenting themselves with respectability and decorum.

EDITORIAL/COMMENTARY/OPINION Concerning the Human Relations Commission By Dr. John E. Warren, Publisher It appears that some members of the County Human Relations Commission (HRC) are confused about their purpose. The Commission should understand that the very nature of “human relations” is diversity seeking to make room for differences. Let us pause and remember a few very important points. (1) The Commission was created by the County Board of Supervisors, with each one given the right to make appointments. At no time was there an expressed or implied requirement that those appointments need satisfy anyone other than those making the appointments; (2) On the motion that created the current controversy, Pastor Hodges only sought to “abstain”. It was others insisting on the reason, which they probably already knew, since it was known that Pastor Hodges is a minister. When pushed, the explanation he offered came from the

Bible, the foundation scripture of his faith. There is no universal reference to scripture being called “hate speech”. Now this whole matter has dissolved into a campaign to remove a duly appointed member of the HRC because of offense taken “with” what was said rather than the context in which the biblical explanation was given to the questions asked. Does this mean that whenever we speak to someone and they give us an answer we are “uncomfortable with” we have a right to call their response “hate speech”? We the public should be very careful to understand all the issues before we engage in signing “form” letters of support on any side of an issue. If the Commission can not get beyond this issue, then perhaps it should be dissolved and former Supervisor Leon Williams’ name should be removed, lest we misrepresent him with the Commission named after him.

Black History Month And Losing The Right To Vote By Kathleen Harmon Community Activist I was a young adult when the first Voting Rights Act, of 1965, was passed and signed into law by Lyndon Baines Johnson, or, as we would call the creator of Medicare and Medicaid, affectionately, Lyndon “Brains” Johnson. The Voting Rights Act required the U.S. Attorney General and U.S. Court of Appeals D.C. Circuit Court to preclear any proposed voting changes in Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, Texas, and Virginia, as well as some counties and townships where the white people liked to deny us legal rights to receive the same benefits that they do.

We fought for freedom. We laid down our lives! They stoned us in Selma, Alabama, along with Dr. Martin Luther King, and they stuck dogs on us and sometimes anonymous, sometimes not so anonymous, Ku Klux Klan and their silent accomplices. When the John Roberts Supreme Court in 2013 thought this portion should be updated by Congress, they

Black History Real and Imagined By Julianne Malveaux Economist How should we commemorate Black History Month? Should corporations, universities, and nonprofit organizations bring in speakers, beat drums, and eat soul food? Should folks take out ads in the media lifting up Black accomplishments? Should there be moments of silence, should folks lift up the special folks in their organizations who commemorated history? Or should we keep it real and call our nation out on the ways that Black history has been manipulated, distorted, and ignored? In the name of Carter G. Woodson, the founder of the Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH), can we firmly support the teaching of truth in educational institutions? I’m not talking about critical race theory, a legal concept that is only occasionally taught in undergraduate schools, but mostly presented in our nation’s law schools. Somehow the his-

tory deniers have managed to propose laws in the majority of states to regulate the way race is taught in schools. These laws would prevent teaching content that would make students “uncomfortable” or “guilty”. In other words, legislators are saying that teachers can’t tell the truth. I understand discomfort. I understand it personally. I’ll never forget my seventh-grade Catholic school

classroom when a sister who looked like she had jumped off an Aunt Jemima’s pancake box was pictured in the textbook and the nun looked at me, directly, before saying that enslavement “wasn’t that bad”. It might have been my mom’s eighth or ninth bus trip to the school to tell them about history.

And nobody cared that White children were also being fed a distortion that allowed them to feel superior to me and to incorporate racism into the way they saw the world. So I have a message to those corporations who are doing these Black History Commemorations, ads and sales.

That’s the hard part, though. It means changing your mind and shifting your consciousness.

Uncomfortable? Tell me about it. For the next week or so, I was hazed by classmates who told me that I used to be a slave. No matter. I gave as good as I got, and the truth was that my foremothers and forefathers were enslaved. Nobody cared about my discomfort; nor the distorted version of history my classmates and I were force-fed.

Stop it! We ain’t stupid. We aren’t buying your stuff because you genuflected for a moment. If you are really about Black History, why not support Black people, on the real? Why not put your corporate weight into the fight for voting rights? Why not treat your employees fairly? We don’t need to see your ads, we need to see your actions.

If you are an insurance company, did your company insure enslaved people? Did you pay when they were murdered because they were the property that you insured? If you are a bank, did you issue bonds to corrupt and vicious enslavers? What were the profits and how do they manifest to this day? If you don’t want to deal with these issues, perhaps

It means understanding the way that racism is baked into the cake we call America. It means calling it out, it means investigating the many ways your corporation benefited from racism.

probably thought 9 years was enough time to act, before the next post-Census redistricting. "Truly, Congress will handle it," we were promised. Fast-forward from 2013 to 2022. All the Republicans, and Democratic Senators, Kyrsten Sinema and Joe Manchin, apparently think the time has not yet arrived to vote on the plan from the political party that's not trying to, more and more openly each and every month, disenfranchise people of color and low socioeconomic advantage. you can hire an historian or empower your employees to go through your archives. Or do you think that these questions are going to go away? We are living in a moment of reckoning. The murders of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor have reminded us that Black Lives Matter because heretofore Black life has been considered cheap. It’s an ugly history, but it's also a powerful one. As Dr. Martin Luther King often said, “The arc of the moral universe is long but it bends toward justice.” Corporate America can accelerate the slope of the arc if they are willing to share their role in the exploitation of Black people. I’m not expecting corporate America to do the right thing. I’m just offering a possibility that makes sense and can make a difference. Dr. Julianne Malveaux is an economist, author and Dean of the College of Ethnic Studies at Cal State LA.

The Trauma Suffered Daily by Black and Brown Youths Demands Our Attention By David W. Marshall The Reconciled Body Before Krysten Sinema won the Arizona Senate seat left vacant by the retirement of Jeff Flake, a Democrat had never been elected to the U.S. Senate during the previous 30 years. Today, people have buyer’s remorse in their disappointment with Sen. Sinema. When voters awarded Democratic lawmakers control of Congress and the White House, they did so with high expectations. The hope was to have laws passed benefiting and protecting communities of color. Our single vote represents a measure of trust given to a candidate who will fight on our behalf as citizens. There are times when the expectations are fulfilled and times when the trust is taken for granted. In Arizona, voters are upset because Sinema not only betrayed their trust but did so for financial gain. The senator’s popularity was already in decline after she voted against raising the federal minimum wage, her resistance to endorsing the Build Back Better legislation,

and skipping a Senate vote to create a bipartisan commission to investigate the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol. When the Arizona senator joined fellow Democrat Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia in rejecting changes to the Senate filibuster rules, the two essentially prevented the passage of voting rights legislation. One should not be surprised that Sinema

attended a fundraiser with Republican donors the day before the filibuster vote. In her speech, Sinema told the mostly oil-industry attendees that “rest assured” she would not back any changes to the filibuster rules. Sinema has been exposed as an undependable fighter for the interests impacting minority communities. That two lawmakers can stand apart and undercut the sincere efforts and work of their fellow Democratic lawmakers merits accountability and consequences. Many people have concluded that a lawmaker who is unwilling to do whatever it takes to save democracy warrants being voted out of office. The same conclusions and consequences are needed for lawmakers who have no urgency in protecting and saving Black and brown children

who are adversely impacted by crime and gun violence. You simply cannot expect a child to live in a warzone and ignore the lasting harm to the child. Every night somewhere across the nation, there are traumatized children and young adults dealing with the constant sound of gunfire, sirens, searchlights, and the noise from surveillance helicopters, in addition to bearing witness to the actual violence. Gun violence disproportionately impacts minority children and families living in poverty. It is not just a law enforcement issue, but a public health crisis where children exposed to trauma have higher rates of anger, anxiety, depression, desensitization to violence, and post-traumatic stress disorder. Without the proper intervention, trau-

matized youths and young adults become perpetrators, and the cycle never ends. It takes a committed public policy and community effort to offset the systemic racism limiting equitable opportunities. No one person or organization can solve the problem. The key is having elected officials who truly understand the complexities of the solution and remain sensitive to the human costs. In 2017, DaVonte Friedman went before members of the Baltimore City Council to present youth violence prevention. He spoke from experience because he understood the struggles of growing up in tough neighborhoods. His was a success story in the making. Despite having earlier run-ins with police, he turned himself around and received his GED, and completed a lead-

ership program that gave him the opportunity to speak to local city officials. When asked what he wanted for his 18th birthday, he told his mother, “I’m glad I made it to see 18.” Days after his birthday, the 18-year-old was killed in a triple shooting. Unfortunately, every urban area has a DaVonte Friedman. Those who fight the odds don’t always make it. Every city and state government has a Kyrsten Sinema-like official who was put into office and trusted to serve but stands in the way of progress, unwilling to fight at any cost for communities of color. David W. Marshall is the founder of the faith-based organization, TRB: The Reconciled Body, and author of the book God Bless Our Divided America.

SUNRISE

ARRANGEMENTS BY PREFERRED CREMATION & BURIAL MORTUARY Dacyczyn Dae’Zhane Lorraine Crosby (affectionately known as Zyn) was born in San Diego, California, on December 14, 1996, to Dionna and Kevin Crosby. She is the youngest of three children. Zyn was raised by Stacie and Victor Marshall, where she had a fulfilling childhood, an extended family, and accepted Christ at a young age. At age 18, Dacyczyn left San Diego and moved to Dallas, Texas, where she began growing in her journey as a young adult woman. Zyn was an amazing woman with an amazing soul. She was loving, dedicated, loyal, beautiful, talented, and fun loving. Dacyczyn had an infectious and joyful laugh, and always tried to make those in her world feel encouraged and hopeful, even in times when she couldn’t channel those emotions for herself. Her smile was radiant and lit up any room she entered; her unique personality and rare energy made her memorable. After losing her brother at a young age from the same illness, Zyn learned to value every moment and clung dearly to those she truly loved. She knew just how short life is and chose to live hers unapologetically and to the fullest. Zyn’s strength and will to live were apparent. She would get up and go every day, showing full dedication to a very hard job, despite her struggle to just breathe free air like the rest of us. She hid her illness well because she didn’t want people feeling sorry for her or to consider her weak. Although “Zynnie Pooh” will be severely missed, we are grateful that she is no longer suffering. On January 3, 2022, Dacyczyn Dae’Zhane Lorraine Crosby finally breathed deeply, in the arms of the Lord alongside her brother, who preceded her in death, Kevin Crosby, Jr. Left to treasure her memory are her parents: Dionna and Kevin Crosby; sister, Keion- na-Romanique Crosby; step-parent, Daina Williams; grandmothers: Johnnie Crosby and Lisa Marshall; her godfamily, the Marshall family: Stacie, Victor, Jamaica, Eugene, and Victor II; along with a host of family and good friends.

Ruby left Louisiana in 1946 after the birth of her first child, Melvin Jr. The two of them traveled by train across the country to Coronado, California, where she joined her husband, Melvin W Price, Sr. Mr. Price had left ahead of his wife and son to get things settled for their arrival. He was ready to escape the Jim Crow south and their cotton picking ways in search of a better life for his growing family. Ruby was pregnant with her second child then, Larry Price, who was born in Coronado. He was the first of eight California born children; five more boys and two girls would follow. After ten years of residency in the Coronado community, the family relocated to Southeast San Diego where the family became members of Mt. Zion Missionary Church. Ruby, the tireless worker, worked for the Bahia and the Town & Country Hotel and worked as a personal cook for a high-ranking executive of the Betty Crocker General Mills brand in La Jolla, California, in the 1960’s and 70’s. After retiring, she preferred to stay home and watch a variety of fruits and vegetables grow from her backyard garden. She also loved to cook, sew, and help raise her extended family. Known for her kind and generous ways, she was a true believer in Christ. Her faith helped her navigate through life’s trials and tribulations with courage and love. She was a very remarkable and loving woman.

Dr. Afflalo has worked tirelessly to ensure access to COVID-19 testing and vaccinations throughout the pandemic. She is a fierce champion and we are grateful for her dedication to the Southeastern San Diego community.” For Dr. Afflalo’s presentation, Bishop Terrell Fletcher gave strong accolades regarding the doctor to which the congregants responded with a standing ovation and applause of respect and appreciation as she took

So, it is my job and my God’s assignment to make sure that they are healthy enough to do the work in the Kingdom.” She is greatly concerned about diseases that have afflicted the Black and Brown communities, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, obesity. “Those are the diseases that are killing us at an early age, so I’m trying to prevent people from getting it or helping them to learn how to manage it properly.” Indeed, she established the COVID-19 educational

Lincoln’s Lady Hornets vs Morse’s Lady Tigers By Darrel Wheeler, Contributing Writer

The Lady Hornets and Morse’s Tigers battled for four quarters of competitive basketball for Eastern League supremacy last week at Lincoln’s house. The Hornets outplayed their visiting rivals 55-47. “This is not a rivalry, beating them 23 out of 24 times is no rivalry,” Hornet Head Coach L onnie Jones shared. “In other sports, yes, but not in girls basketball. We run Southeast and that’s all there is to it,’’ he said. The Lady Hornets featured high scorer Izabella LaLa Everett and Demi Fowler. “Demi is as tough as nails. She works hard but never gets the credit that she deserves. I’m very tough on her but she can take the coaching. She is a blessing,” Coach Lonnie shared. The Hornets’ Yasmine Sharpe-Shropshire is a re b ou n d i n g p h e n om , averaging 18 snatches a game she led the state in rebounds and finished 8th in the country last season and still dominates the boards. Not to be outdone were Taniya Cooksey and the tough Anderson sisters, Damyja and Deja. “We knew Morse really wanted to beat us and we knew they were going to play hard, so we had to play harder,” LaLa shared. “We got off to a slow start but we did what we had to do and won.”

LaLa has built up a very impressive resume during her tenure at the Hive, including a career high 65 point game against Coronado High and multiple other scoring achievements. Next stop the playoff, can LaLa help lead the proud Lady Hornets to a CIF Title? Who knows, maybe the Mighty

Tigers might have something to say about CIF opportunities.

In Loving Memory of RUBY LEE VRYES By Darrel Wheeler Contributing Writer Relatives and close friends came together to commemorate the long and interesting life of Ruby Lee Vryes, who lived to be 95. Friends and family members were able to share their memories of the family matriarch and community treasure together at the Mt. Olive Church of Christ. “She was very nice and kind to us and I can’t remember ever hearing her yelling and

screaming at people,” shared Nephew Charlie Brown. “It would be hard to find a more calm person. I always admired that about her, even as a kid.” “She was everybody’s mother in the neighborhood. She was definitely like a second mother to me. I'm going to miss her. I'm glad to be part of her family,” Cousin Charles Roberson said, as he remembered the very special person that was Ms. Ruby Lee Vryes.

BUSINESS & FINANCE Year Of The Tiger: Black Tech Professionals Meet For Success Continued from cover

According to a 2020 U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission report, Black people make up nearly 14% of all industries and only 7% of the high tech industry. Additionally, numbers grow even

worse at the executive levels of the high tech industry. Jayton Harps, President of the San Diego Chapter of the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE), says, “We must pave and create new pathways for Black people within the industries of Tech and Engineering by preparing the next gen-

eration but also pushing for more equity at the top levels of the industry.” “The Tech Industry needs a facelift when it comes to equity and inclusion especially at the more corporate

levels of the industry. Black professionals are coming together to solve our most critical challenges today while celebrating all we’ve overcome together,” says Elizabeth Cotton, Founder of Black Tech Link.

Tips to Avoid Identity Theft Voice & Viewpoint Newswire

• Protect your Social Security number: SSNs have evolved into a universal identifier, serving as a key to much of your personal information. With your name and SSN alone, an identity thief can open new credit and bank accounts, rent an apartment, or even obtain employment under your name. To protect your SSN, avoid carrying your Social Security card in your wallet, and instead keep it at home in a safe place. Only provide your SSN when absolutely necessar y – such as on tax forms or employment records. If a business asks you for your SSN, see if there is another number that can be used instead. If a government agency asks for it, expect to see a required “disclosure” form

that should provide information on whether your SSN is required or optional, how it will be used, and the agency’s legal authority to ask for it. • Recognize “phishing” at-tempts and don’t take the bait: Scam artists “phish” for victims by posing as banks, stores, or g ov e r n m e nt a g e n cies. They will attempt to trick you into providing your personal information via phone call, text, e-mail, and postal mail. While some organizations may need to verify your account number, password, or SSN, legitimate companies will never reach out to you in this way. W-2 phishing emails are another form of phishing scams common during tax season. Never give out personal information to anyone, unless you are the one who made the

initial contact. • Protect your online information and accounts with strong passwords: Use different, unique passwords - that are at least eight chara c t e r s - f or e a c h of y ou r online accounts. with a mix of letters, numbers, and symbols. Never reuse passwords, consider using a password manager and use a two-factor authentication to provide an extra layer of security. See IDENTITY page 15

HEALTHY LIVING/EDUCATION Mindfulness And Its Proven Impact On Loneliness: What To Know health outcomes such as higher risk of dementia, mortality and disability.

Voice & Viewpoint Newswire

Maybe you know someone who stands by taking five minutes each morning to meditate or finds time after lunch to focus on breathing. Whatever the method may be, incorporating “mindfulness” practices into your life can have a wide range of positive health benefits like improving your memory, sleep and immune system; reducing stress and feelings of loneliness. Mindfulness means taking time to pay attention to yourself and your thoughts and feelings. Read on to learn how you can put mindfulness into practice in your life to help improve your overall health.

How to make mindfulness a routine part of your day: • Find five to ten minutes each day to sit quietly and focus on your breath. (Helpful hint: Put your phone on silent or in another room so you can concentrate!) Take the time to notice where your mind goes and how your

body is feeling. You just might find that this helps you focus and prioritize your day. • Before you go to bed, take time to focus on the good things that happened that day. Write your thoughts down in a journal. Writing them down can help you deliberately recognize the positive, even on a tough day. • Search for “mindfulness apps” on your smartphone or tablet that

lead you in a mindfulness exercise. For many people, using an app is an easy way to remain consistent with the practice. And many of these apps are free. Mindfulness has been shown to help older adults overcome a silent but urgent health issue: loneliness. It is estimated that more than half of adults age 65 and over regularly experience moderate to severe

loneliness. Loneliness is characterized by a marked difference between someone’s desired companionship and actual relationships. Through unique studies conducted by UnitedHealthcare and AARP, researchers are applying the techniques of mindfulness to help combat loneliness in older adults. Loneliness poses a serious threat to the quality of life for older adults. It is linked to negative

Researchers looked at whether mindfulness interventions, like breath awareness, self-compassion and kindness exercises, could positively impact a person’s optimism and quality of life — all factors that help reduce loneliness. Conclusions were encouraging: Mindfulness activities were shown to decrease loneliness among older adults. The research demonstrated that mindfulness reduced stress, and improves memor y, sleep, the immune system, resilienc y and compassion for self and others. Although loneliness is complex and challenging to address, a mindfulness practice may help you live your best life. This article was originally published in the New Pittsburgh Courier.

Black Parents Push Back Against Book Bans By Cori Zaragoza Staff Writer

Across the United States, classrooms have found themselves in a battle against censorship. A January 27th article by The New York Times revealed that a Tennessee school board has banned the teaching of “Maus”, a graphic novel that centers around the Holocaust. The Associated Press reported that in Georgia, Republicans have said they will go forward with a proposal that would allow parents to protest books or online material that they feel could harm their children. These are just a few examples of the onslaught of censorship that schools have been dealing with. In Round Rock, Texas, the fight came to a head when a parent complained about a book by Jason Reynold and Ibram X. Kendi, titled “Stamped: Racism, Anti-Racism, and You”. The book is a history of

racist ideas that have existed in the United States and won the national book award for nonfiction in 2016. The Texas school board considered removing the book from their curriculum, until a group of parents stepped up. The Round Rock Black Parents Association organized a petition to keep the book on the curriculum, and acquired over 3,600 supporters. In short, they won, and the book was allowed to be kept on. “The broader message is that these book bans are not going away because they’re part of a larger effort, in my opinion, to destabilize education,” said Natosha Daniels, a former assistant principal and leader in the Round Rock Black Parents Association, on the Rachel Maddow Show on MSNBC News. Daniels said when she first heard complaints about Reynold’s and

Kendi’s book, she said she went to the Presidents of the Black Student Union in her district and asked their thoughts on the controversy. “One of the first things that a student told me was ‘If they’re trying to ban this book, then why are we reading ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ in 8th grade? Why are they not banning ‘Of Mice And Men’?’ That was their first thought,” she shared. “They were like, ‘They’re never going to ban stories of white saviorism, only stories of Blackness will be banned.’ And I think that’s very telling that they recognize that this is blatant racism, the fact that they’re not banning those other books.”

Daniels credits the support of the Round Rock community with the success of averting a book ban. The Round Rock Black Parents Association organized groups, such as Anti-Racists Coming Together (ACT), to speak out at school boards and express their concerns. Community organization,

Daniels says, is the key to fighting back against censorship. “One of the most successful things that we were able to do was partner with several organizations around us. So it was not only run by parents, there were many voices; it was educators in solidarity,” Daniels said.

INTERNATIONAL NEWS THE SHOW MUST GO ON! NEW ROUND OF CULTURAL FESTIVALS

PLANNED IN WEST AFRICA DESPITE SANCTIONS Global Information Network Festival season is around the corner in West Africa despite ongoing insurgencies that have hurt tourism. The region has long been known for its music, dance and cultural shows, among them the Amani festival In Goma, the Democratic Republic of Congo, which opened on Feb. 4. Congolese rumba took the place of honor after its recognition from UNESCO as the world’s intangible cultural heritage.

Two years ago, the festival, n a m e d a f t e r t h e Sw a h i l i word for peace, drew a crowd of 36,000. It is rare for such large numbers to come together in one place. This year’s theme is “Playing for Change, Singing for Peace.” “We are coming together… to show the world that life still exists, that we are aware that a better future depends on all of us and that we must work together to build it,”

organizer Guillaume Bisimwa said.

Véronique Djehinan Lou is an interpretive dancer from Ivory Coast living in Niger. This year, she was invited to Mali’s Fari Foni Waati dance festival this year, but the day she arrived, on Jan. 9, was the day the Economic Community of West African States, ECOWAS, imposed travel and economic sanctions on Mali, closing land and air borders between Mali and its West African neighbors.

continue our party.”

The 2022 Ogobagna Festival is a week-long Dogon cultural festival held on the Niger river bank in Bamaka, now in its seventh year. It’s theme was The Place of Women in our Traditional Society. Agna is another festival, from Feb. 22-26 in Koulikoro, western Mali.

Lou is unsure of how exactly she will get back to Niger. In the meantime, she performed as part of a group dance piece in an auditorium packed with adults and neighborhood children.

Amassagou Dougnon, president of the Malian festival’s organizing committee, urged people to put aside their fears and come to the programs. “No one is afraid to come here,” he said, “because it’s a place of culture, a place of exchange, a place of dialogue, and this is the best kind of place for people to gather to talk and de-stress”.

“We artists are just doing our thing,” she said. “We’re just one voice. We’re the voice of the people. We don’t know when all these problems will be solved, so we just

“Even though many participants could not make it to Bamako this year because of the travel embargo,“ added Drissa Samake, managing director of the Blonba center,

calling off the festival was never an option. It’s during times when the country is facing crises that it’s even more important to hold these cultural activities, he added. “Nothing can unite so many people during this period like these cultural events”, said Samake. “It’s important to us to create what we call social cohesion.” Finally, as some who have visited music festivals on the continent in previous years, several famed festivals will be on hiatus. The Festival in the Desert, for one, is currently in exile due to the unrest in Mali. Organizers of the event will be putting together tours and concerts around the world with many of the Malian artists that have performed in previous years so keep an eye out for Mali bands coming to your region.

COVID-19 UPDATES Omicron Drives US Deaths Higher

SAN DIEGO COUNTY

COVID-19 STATUS

Than In Fall’s Delta Wave

TOTAL CONFIRMED CASES

“Omicron will push us over a million deaths,” said Andrew Noymer, a public health professor at the University of California, Irvine. “That will cause a lot of soul searching. There will be a lot of discussion about what we could have done differently, how many of the deaths were preventable.”

By Carla K. Johnson AP Medical Writer Omicron, the coronavirus variant sweeping across the country, is driving the daily American death toll higher than during last fall’s delta wave. The seven-day rolling average for daily new COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. has been climbing since mid-November, reaching 2,267 on Thursday, January 27,

and surpassing a September peak of 2,100 when delta was the dominant variant. Now omicron is estimated to account for nearly all the virus circulating in the nation. And even though it causes less severe disease for most people, the fact that it is more transmissible means more people are falling ill and dying.

The average daily death toll is now at the same level as last February, when the country was slowly coming off it’s all-time high of 3,300 a day. More Americans are taking precautionary measures against the virus than before the omicron surge, according to an AP-NORC poll. But many people, fatigued by crisis, are returning to some level of normality with hopes that vaccinations or prior infections will protect them. Omicron symptoms are often milder, and some infected people show none, researchers agree. But like the flu, it can be

702,789

deadly, especially for people who are older, have other health problems or who are unvaccinated.

REPORTED TESTS

9,599,213

During the coming week, almost every U.S. state will see a faster increase in deaths, although deaths have peaked in a few states, according to the COVID-19 Forecast Hub. New hospital admissions have started to fall for all age groups, according to CDC data, and a drop in deaths is expected to follow. “In a pre-pandemic world, during some flu seasons, we see 10,000 or 15,000 deaths. We see that in the course of a week sometimes with COVID,” said Nicholas Reich, who aggregates coronavirus projections for the hub in collaboration with the CDC. “The toll and the sadness and suffering is staggering and very humbling,” said Reich, a professor of biostatistics at University of Massachusetts, Amherst.

through 4 years. The FDA will review the application and convene a panel of outside advisers in mid-February to debate the data. The FDA will use that advice in deciding whether the new doses are safe enough for the youngest children. After this, the CDC will gather its own expert panel to help decide if the shots should be recommended for this age group.

SPECIAL SHOTS Shots for children in this age group are one-tenth the size of the adult doses. That’s even smaller than the doses given for 5- to 11-year-olds, which are one-third the dose.

TWO DOSES OR THREE? In December, Pfizer announced a setback: Preliminary study results showed two of the extra-low doses appeared

strong enough to protect babies but weren’t strong enough for 2- to 4-year-olds. The company added a third shot to the study, but results are not expected until late March. Still, the FDA took the highly unusual step of urging Pfizer to apply now for a two-dose series with potentially a third shot added later. During the FDA advisory committee meeting, the public will get its first look at any new evidence of whether two extra-low doses are working better than initially expected among the preschoolers.

IF CLEARED, WHERE WOULD SHOTS BE GIVEN? While the government expanded pharmacists’ ability to vaccinate children during the pandemic, shots for the youngest children primarily

WHAT ABOUT KIDS YOUNGER THAN 6 MONTHS? There are no plans to test shots in newborns.

WILL THE SHOTS BE IN HIGH DEMAND? Va c c i nat i ons have b e e n lower among children than in other age groups, a pattern likely to continue with kids under 5. As of last week, just 20% of kids ages 5 to 11 and just over half of 12- to 17-year-olds were fully vaccinated, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics. While COVID19 tends to be less severe in children, the omicron wave has caused record numbers of child hospitalizations.

US Gives Full Approval To Moderna’s COVID-19 Vaccine By Matthew Perrone AP Health Writer U. S . h e a l t h r e g u l a t o r s on Mond ay, Janu ar y 31, granted full approval to Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine, a shot that’s already been given to tens of millions of Americans since its emergency authorization over a year ago. The action by the Food and Drug Administration means the agency has completed the same rigorous, time-consuming review of Moderna’s shot as dozens of other long-established vaccines. The decision was bolstered by real-world evidence from the more than 200 million doses administered in the U.S. since the FDA cleared the shot in December 2020. Regulators said Monday, January 31, they hoped the extra endorsement would encourage more people to get vaccinated. More than 211 million Americans, or 63% of the total population,

are fully vaccinated. About 86 million people have gotten a booster dose. Vaccinations peaked last spring at more than 3 million per day, and now average less than 750,000 per day. The pace of vaccinations briefly spiked following news of the omicron variant in December but has since slowed again. The FDA reviewed months of additional follow-up data submitted by Moderna to

confirm the vaccine’s effectiveness against COVID-19. The FDA also analyzed and kept watch for serious side effects that have proved to be very rare. The vaccine includes a warning about a rare type of heart inflammation that mostly occurs in young men following the second dose. Most cases are mild and resolve quickly. A d d i t i o n a l l y, t h e F DA r e v i e w e d t h e c o mp a ny ’s manufacturing process and facilities. With full approval, Moderna will now market the vaccine under the brand name, Spikevax. In the U.S., Moderna is used only by adults, for initial vaccination and as a half-dose booster. The company said last fall that the FDA had delayed deciding whether to clear the shots for 12- to 17-year-olds as it examined the heart inflammation risk. Johnson & Johnson has not yet applied for full approval of its COVID-19 vaccine.

IDENTITY: Continued from page 10

Check your credit card bills and bank statements often: Consistently check your credit card bills and bank statements for signs of identity theft. Look for unauthorized charges, withdrawals, or unexpected bills, and report irregular activity to your bank as soon as you see it. If you notice that a bill didn’t arrive on time, it may mean that someone has changed the contact information on your account in order to hide fraudulent charges. Take advantage of free annual credit reports: One of the best ways to protect against identity theft is to monitor your credit history. You are entitled to one free credit report every year from each of the three national credit bureaus: Equifax, Experian and TransUnion. By checking your credit reports at least once a year, you can identify signs of identity theft and errors in your report. Call 1-877-322-8228, or visit www. annualcreditreport.com. If you are a victim of identity theft, contact your local police department or sheriff ’s office right away. You may also report identity theft and generate a recovery plan using the Federal Trade Commission’s website at identitytheft.gov. For more information and resources on identity theft, visit oag. ca.gov/idtheft.

Richard Freeman and Allan B. Light are the first known African-American settlers in San Diego. In 1847, they also became the area’s first Black landowners when they purchased a building from Henry D. Fitch in the modern-day Old Town area. The building, known as San Diego House or Freeman-Light House, was a highly successful saloon, promoting both men to high standing in the community. After San Diego was officially incorporated, Freeman was appointed Deputy Marshal, the first Black law enforcement officer of record in California. Freeman’s daughter inherited the saloon and ran it until the American Hotel demolished the building.
