When Yvonne Lloyd hired Barack Obama to work for her in 1985 in Chicago, she had no idea that he would one day become the first African American President of The United States. Lloyd, a native of Nashville, attended the president’s second inauguration in Washington on Monday, January 21. Lloyd moved to Chicago with her husband and lived there for 40 years. She worked overseeing an organization called The Developing Communities Project. In 1985, there was only one important job that needed to be filled. “We needed a community organizer to lead us and tell us how to go about getting fund-

Public Library’s Andrea Blackman Receives Edwina Hefner Community Leadership Award

NASHVILLE, TN — On Sunday, January 20, the Nashville Symphony presented the Edwina Hefner Community Leadership Award to Andrea Blackman, Division Manager for the Special Collections Division of the Nashville Public Library. Each year, in conjunction with the Regions Let Freedom Sing! Concert honoring the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, the Nashville Symphony presented this award to a member of the community whose work exemplifies Dr. King’s legacy. In 2003, after 11 years of consulting and teaching in both Florida and Tennessee, Blackman began coordinating the library’s nationally recognized Civil Rights Room and Collec-

tion. She regularly speaks in the community and in academia on multicultural education, library services and oral history methodologies. Blackman has been recognized for her professional achievements with the Civil Rights Oral History Project and the library’s most recent endeavor of chronicling the events of the May 2010 flood. Under her leadership, the Nashville Public Library has launched four successful oral history projects: Civil Rights, Veterans History, Nashville Business Leaders and the 2010 Flood Digital Project. Nashville Symphony Director of Education and Community Engagement Blair Bodine says, “It is so inspiring to see

the impact that Andrea’s continuing work has had in the Middle Tennessee area. She has captured the stories, voices and visions of our community. Her passion for sharing the legacy of the Civil Rights Movement and her contribution as an educator is truly motivating to all.” The Nashville Symphony’s Community Leadership Award was created in 2007 to recognize Edwina Hefner, an active volunteer with Let Freedom Sing! for 14 years, for her outstanding leadership and her numerous efforts throughout the Nashville community. The award recognizes individuals helping to make the world a better place through their leadership efforts.

LETTERS TO EDITOR Dear Editor, Congress claims they have to avoid going “over the cliff” financially while they continue to kick the can down the road. What a joke. Please publish my letter so your readers can become aware of the real solution to this financial crisis. The 100 year old Income Tax is a bismal failure. It is unfair and the only ones who benefit from it are congressional lobbyist and congressmen on the take. The Fair Tax HR25 and S13 will replace the income tax with a fair consumption tax by eliminating the IRS. All tax measures must originate in the House Ways and Means Committee. The bill has been shelved there for over 5 years without a vote. It is time to pressure our Representatives to do the right thing and move this bill out of committee and on the floor of the House for a vote. Anyone doubting the Fair Tax only need to realize what would happen to the economy if every person received their full paycheck/retirement every payday and every busines never has to report anything to the IRS ever again. Think it through and support the Fair Tax. Roy T Newsom Granbury, TX 76049

Churches Donate Warm Items for Homeless

Some of Nashville’s homeless won’t have to go another night unprotected in the brutal cold weather anymore thanks to an East Nashville church. New Livingstone Church, 330 Hancock St, hosted a massive donation drive collecting warm wear items – gloves, hats, socks, thermal underwear, hand/feet warmers and scarves – to donate to Room in the Inn Program, an organization that offers shelter, food, clothing, assistance programs and other services for Nashville’s homeless. This effort was in response to a homeless man who died on the steps of Crystal Fountain Church in East Nashville on Russell Street near South 10th Street. Close to 4,000 people are homeless in Nashville according to city officials. Despite beds begin available at the Res-

cue Mission and the Room in the Inn’s 15 church sites that offer warm shelters on cold nights, there are just not enough beds to keep everyone warm overnight, according to Karen Stevens, special projects director for Room in the Inn. She says it’s up to churches like New Livingstone to fill in the gap. “We hope to never see another day when someone dies on the steps of a church which was originally established as a place for people to find refuge. On the heels of a holiday that tugs at our hearts and appeals to our good will, we are humbled to share in such a meaningful and worthwhile endeavor that benefits hurting humanity,” said Pastor Ronnie T. Mitchell, senior pastor of New Livingstone Church. The day after James Fulmer, 50, was found dead, Mitchell put a call out to the church membership asking them to be-

gin collecting items and to bring them to church on Sunday. He says he didn’t know how much would be donated with such short notice, but was pleasantly surprised and overwhelmed with the outpouring of donations. “The impact on our membership has been telling. I know that they gave of themselves, and were pleased to do so. Seeing the church dig in and get this done sets a tone for the rest of the year,” said Mitchell. The donation drive lasted through the following Wednesday. The community was asked to bring donations as well. In all, New Livingstone collected about 15, 20-gallon bags filled with all of the requested items, plus additional clothing items and baby clothes. On Wednesday, Stevens, along with a group of volunteers met up with members from New Livingstone who delivered the donations. Stevens was shocked at the amount being donated. “First of all, I had no idea that the community would come out and donate like this. To have the back of a pickup filled with bags to keep the streets of Nashville warm really brings tears to my eyes. There’s such a need out there,” said Stevens. When the temperatures get as cold as 30s and 20 degrees overnight as it has been lately, teams of workers from Room in the Inn patrol the streets of Nashville, visiting with the homeless to make sure they’re okay. While on the patrol, they deliver items like those donated by New Livingstone to keep the homeless safe. “The community is really generous to us most of the time, but the churches

have really walked the walk and stepped up. Compared to what New Livingstone did, we have had nothing like this happen, but on a regular basis we have donations, but nothing on this magnitude,” said Stevens. While giving Nashville’s homeless clothes, blankets, hats, etc is a great alternative, Room in the Inn officials say more is needed. They have about 180 churches who signed up with the program and promised to open their doors at night when it gets really cold, but only about a dozen churches actually do so. While opening the doors of the church would be the best and coziest option, Mitchell says New Livingstone is just not equipped to do so. “The church actually participated in the Room in the Inn effort about 20 years ago. With a small facility, it was quite a challenge. Instead of opening our doors this time, we felt that we could make a positive impact in other ways. Many that are homeless will turn down an invite to stay inside anyway, therefore our collection of Cold Kits may help address their need of having more clothing as they brave the elements. When responding to hurting humanity , it may NOT be a bad idea to diversify the response,” said Mitchell. Stevens says donation drives like the one New Livingstone did are very helpful and much appreciated, but more is needed.

The Summer Program is an intensive program, during which highly qualified undergraduates receive a whirlwind introduction to the fields of biostatistics and epidemiology and to the use of quantitative methods for biological, environmental, public health, and medical research. The program also provides

advice about graduate school and the application process through GRE preparation, meetings with different departments of the Harvard School of Public Health, and individualized mentoring by Harvard faculty. Participants take non-credit introductory courses in biostatistics and STATA (a statistical program), and attend a series of afternoon topical seminars. The seminars, led by faculty members from various departments at the Harvard School of Public Health, are designed to broaden participant’s understanding of the relationship of biostatistics to human health by providing a snapshot of methods developed and applied to real research projects in different fields.

Participants also gain research experience through small-group research projects directed by faculty and graduate student mentors. Students apply statistical methods to real data to address important and timely questions. For example, one group of students recently studied whether there was a relationship between body mass index and postpartum depression. Another research project examined the effects of arsenic exposure on proteomic profiles in Bangladesh. At the end of the program, students present their research to the group and to affiliated faculty. Alumni of the Summer Program have earned or are enrolled in graduate degrees in many campuses over the country, including Masters or PhDs in

Biostatistics and Epidemiology. Potential applicants should have some aptitude and interest in quantitative methods and an interest in public health as a career. Prior exposure to statistics is not required. Housing and travel are provided and a living stipend of approximately $1500/month is provided.

We were African American, Asian American, white, Latino and from Detroit, Seattle, Philadelphia, California, Alabama and Mississippi. We were old, we were young, we were male and female. And we were all there for one reason: To be witnesses for this historic occasion. We all had stories of how we volunteered for the campaign or how we wanted our children or grandchildren to witness this moment. We came to be inspired by President Obama; to begin moving forward. And we were not disappointed. “We the people.” And when we looked at each other, “we the people” were everywhere.

College of Engineering at TSU Awarded Two Research Projects

Glen A. Fleming

ASK-PEP Director Glen A. Fleming Remembered by Prevention Program NASHVILLE, TN — Through its ongoing efforts and initiatives, The Daniel Payne Outreach Ministriesof Payne Chapel AME Church wishes to celebrate the life and legacy of Mr. Glenn A. Fleming,executive director of the ASK-PEP (Alcohol Screening and Knowledge & Parents Educating Parents) Program. With the passing of Mr. Fleming on December 24, 2012, he leaves an enduring legacy of activism, community service and mentorship for youth and young adults among underrepresented populations. A native of Jackson, Mississippi and a graduate of Tennessee State University , Mr. Fleming served as Director of Prevention Services for the Tennessee Department of Mental Health. In 1993, Mr. Fleming became the executive director of the ASK-PEP Program at Daniel Payne Ministries distinguishing the program in its first three years of service. “As a result of Mr. Fleming’sefforts, The Ask-PEP Program was recognized by the State of Tennessee as the leading effort of its kind in steering at-risk youth toward higher academic achievement and community involvement while strengthening their relationships with teachers, parents and community officials,” said Daniel Payne Ministries Board Chair Dr. Cornelia Graves. As a twenty –six year member of Clark Memorial United Methodist Church, a lifetime member of the Nashville Chapter of Tennessee State

University’sAlumni Associationand a devoted member of Kappa Alpha Si Incorporated,Mr. Fleming impacted the Nashville community and beyond through his unique brand of service and community engagement. “Glenn’s favorite expression ‘Acts of Love and Kindness Counteracts Meanness and Hate’ compels us to think critically and continue to meet the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of our families,”said Rev. Sidney F. Bryant, pastor of Payne Chapel AME Church and Chief Executive of Daniel Payne Ministries. “ As we miss Glenn, we take comfortin the knowledge that our outreach is forever enhanced by his model of service,and we accept the challenge of continuing his legacy as we meet the needs of parents and youth in our community.” Payne Chapel serves the East Nashville and Middle Tennessee communities through the Daniel Payne Outreach Ministries, Inc. This outreach effort provides emergency food relief for area families in partnership with the Second Harvest Food Bank (Living Breadbox), a leading alcohol and drug prevention program for at-risk teens (ASK-PEP Program), and preschool, before and aftercare service for children and youth (Daniel Payne Christian Childcare Center.) Payne Chapel is located at 212 Neill Avenue.

ever, don’t perform well on sloped terrain. In addition, concrete and metal beam barriers are expensive, and state and local agencies often lack the resources to rapidly deploy these technologies to areas where vehicles frequently cross over the adjacent medians. The cable rail system research will last 30 months with a funding level of $105,000 and will look at how some of the road geometries and traffic characteristics affect cable barrier performances. Other outcomes are expected to include an updated safety effectiveness performance of the median cable barriers in the state, and an evaluated performance of different types of cable barrier systems used on Tennessee’s roadways. The second research project will be a collaboration partnership between Dr. Chimba and Dr. Mbakisya

Onyango of the University of Tennessee-Chattanooga, and evaluate pavementmarking performance in Tennessee. The study, according to Dr. Chimba, will provide vital information to road users. “If adhered to, the results will improve road users’ safety with the many benefits to TDOT,”he said. According to the proposal, the benefits of the research project would include: the proposed pavement marking replacement (maintenance) timing for different types of pavements; increased road users safety measures by ensuring that the retroreflectivity levels are maintained at the minimum levels recommended by the Federal Highway Administration; establish correlations, if any, between pavement markings and crash frequency and types, which will help in the pavement marking replacement scheduling; and increase efficiency in pavement marking maintenance, taking into account traffic, environment and pavement surface characteristics. The second project has a recommended funding level of $500,000 with approximately 40 percent of the fee for the University, and will last 48 months, conducted in two phases.

He earned his bachelor’s degree in public relations, with a minor in business administration, from Belmont University.

NASHVILLE, TN (TSU NEWS SERVICE) — The College of Engineering at Tennessee State University has been awarded two research projects sponsored by the Tennessee Department of Transportation to improve driver safety on the roads throughout the state. TDOT has sponsored several projects at the College since 2011, mostly related to traffic safety and traffic management. The latest projects are expected to begin later this year and will continue the trend. Dr. Deo Chimba, assistant professor in the Department of Civil and Architectural Engineering, will conduct both studies, which will last between 30-48 months, and look at the effectiveness of cable rail systems, and pavement marking retroreflectivity durability and safety. The first study will look at the effectiveness of cable rail systems with respect to reducing the number of crashes, and the severity of injuries and fatalities. According to the Department of Transportation, median crossover crashes often result in fatalities or serve injuries to occupants and to the drivers in opposing traffic lanes. The concrete and metal beam barriers traditionally used to prevent these crashes, how-

Johnathan Lee Iverson is the Ringmaster By Janice Malone

Ladies and gentlemen and children of all ages! It’s that time of year again, when the Ringling Bros and Barnum Bailey Circus comes to town! It seems that the pageantry, the beauty and the magic of the circus brings out the kid in all of us—even adult children. This year’s show is titled Ringling Bros and Barnum Bailey Presents: Dragons. For the first time in circus history, myth and majesty will share the arena during this must-see family event that can only be witnessed at The Greatest Show On Earth®! Each tribe must prove that they have virtues of Courage, Strength, Wisdom and Heart to arouse dragons which appear right before your very eyes! Don’t miss this once-in-a-lifetime family event when The Greatest Show On Earth brings the world together… to bring your family together! Johnathan Lee Iverson is the man that helps keep the action flowing seamlessly. As the Ringling Bros and Barnum Bailey official ringmaster, part of his job is to keep the fantasy fantastic. “The main thing about being a ringmaster is making sure that you‘re translating the fantasy of the circus fluidly to the audience. The ringmaster has to keep that fantasy going,” explains Iverson during a recent chat. “In every show there’s always something that will happen that’s not a part of the script, so it’s my job buffer things when that happens.” With his iconic top hat in hand, Iverson presides over this fantastical celebratory tournament of circus champions that brings together mystic dragon lore with authentic circus feats found only at The Greatest Show On Earth®! Johnathan Lee Iverson was the first African American and the youngest Ringmaster in the history of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey®. It’s obvious that entertainment would be Johnathan’s calling in life even as a little boy. At the age of 11, he began performing with the world-famous Boys Choir of Harlem and was awarded the lead tenor. As a member of the choir, he sang at the intermission for Luciano Pavarotti’s Concert in Central Park, performed in a live show on Broadway and won second place in the Lena Horne

Johnathan Lee Iverson is the official Ringmaster for Ringling Bros Barnum and Bailey Circus

Vocal Jazz Scholarship. Within Johnathan’s first year of touring with Ringling Bros.® he caught the eye of legendary journalist Barbara Walters who named Johnathan one of the ten most fascinating people in 1999. Even though he was a child prodigy, Iverson still had the excitement of being in the audience of a Ringling Bros circus show. He says, “Yes, I loved the circus back then. Going to the circus at Madison Square Garden as a kid who grew in NYC was something you did as a child. It was just what came natural—like getting all dressed up for Easter or something. I really enjoyed everything about the circus—especially the motorcycle acts.” Johnathan graduated from the University of Hartford’s Hartt School in May 1998 with a degree in voice performance, and shortly after his graduation, He was

invited to begin his professional entertainment career with the 129th Edition of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey®. Johnathan couldn’t refuse the offer and felt his prominent role in the show was an unbelievable dream come true. He’s now been with Ringling Bros for a total of 15 years. In 2004 he left the company to do various musical theatre shows but was asked to come back five years later. Iverson recalls, “My original goal during college was to pursue a career in opera. I went to an audition at a dinner theatre. It so happens that the director of the dinner theatre was also a director for Ringling Bros. After my audition he suggested that I try out for the show and I was hired.” After having toured with the 140th Edition, Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Presents BARNUM 200SM, Johnathan was filled with joy when he was asked to continue his reign as Ringmaster for another spectacular Edition, DRAGONS. “Ringling Bros. is truly The Greatest Show On Earth. It amazes me how every year the producers and the creative team come together to create one innovative circus spectacular after another,” exclaims, Johnathan. Performing in the circus has truly become a really family affair for Iverson. His wife and fellow performer Priscilla, whom he met and married while previously touring with Ringling Bros., and their children Matthew Felipe and Lila Simone, all travel the world together while being part of the Greatest Show on Earth! Opening Day, Friday, Jan. 25` at the Bridgestone Arena, 501 Broadway, Nashville, TN 37203 First show time is at 10:30 am; 6 p.m. show Doors open – All Access Pre-show (meet performers and animals, and learn circus skills). 7 p.m. Show time starts at 7pm.

For Super Bowl XLVII: Invite Point Aux Pin By Janice Malone

It seems that the state of Alabama not only produces top college football talent but our neighboring state is also becoming known for its top grade oysters, particularly the Point aux Pin. Alabama is historically the No. 1 oyster processing state, and the new farming technique is expected to bolster a state seafood industry that has a projected annual sales impact of $390 million. The Point aux Pins oyster, produced on Steve and Dema Crockett’s farm in Grand Bay, Alabama, is a premium oyster raised using the Australian off-bottom technique. This special technique is designed to give them a more appealing shape and make them a more consistent product, which some are referring to as the “boutique oyster.” And as of last month, this boutique, farm-raised oyster, prized for its texture, taste and shape, is currently available through the 26 stores that comprise the South Region of Whole Foods Market. This writer sampled some Point aux Pins oysters from the Whole Foods Green Hills store recently. As a connoisseur of fried oysters from restaurants throughout the world, Point aux Pins

The premium oysters produced at the Crockett farm have been getting plenty of attention from the Alabama Gulf Seafood community. The oysters are popping up on menus at restaurants including Birmingham’s Hot and Hot Fish Club and are available through processor Bon Secour Fisheries in Bon Secour and Johnson Sea Products in Bayou La Batre. “Whole Foods Market in Mountain Brook, Alabama gave us an early gift for the holiday season by introducThese Point aux Pins are ready for some ing us to Alabama farm-raised Point aux football!

Film and Panel Discussion on “Soul Food Junkies” By Ron Wynn

Filmmaker Byron Hunt’s new film “Soul Food Junkies,” part of the “Independent Lens” series, explores the growth and popularity of those foods popularly known as “soul food” within the Black community. It also examines their impact on the disproportionate rate of such disease as diabetes and hypertension among African Americans. Hunt’s documentary was shown last Saturday at the Nashville Public Library as part of the ongoing series of public films and forums co-sponsored by ITVS Community Cinema in conjunction with Nashville Public Television. The event also included an extensive Q&A with special guests author Alice Randall,

author/CEO Carol Batey and health & nutrition coach Dawn Freeman. Hunt said during the opening moments of his film he made it because of the memories he had regarding his father, who battled obesity all his life and died before he ever had the opportunity to see his grandchild. He loved the things commonly known as “soul food,” and never was able to get his weight under control or deal with subsequent health issues caused by his diet. “Soul Food Junkies” also explores such issues as “food deserts,” neighborhoods and communities where it is virtually impossible to purchase or find healthy foods, the necessity of eating more fruits and vegetables, and alternatives in the preparation of soul food that

allows those who enjoy it to still consume it without so much concern about possible links to disease. Hunt also visited soul food restaurants in other cities, looked at the growing number of people who are growing their foods in gardens, and discussed how much the obesity epidemic was affecting people’s desires to find healthier ways of eating. A panel discussion afterwards focused on alternatives, education and dietary regimen. Author Alice Randall, whose latest book “Ada Rules” discusses healthy eating within a framework of other related items like self-esteem and wellness, said many Black women don’t understand body types are different for them, and that being unnaturally skinny isn’t necessarily healthy either. The issue Randall said involves knowing how to prepare your food, and combining dietary resolve with exercise and good judgment. “I’ve lost more than 80 pounds through just exercising, watching how I prepare my food and continuing a program of working out and maintaining my health,” Randall said. “You’ve also got to avoid things like processed sugar in soft drinks and many of the things that really aren’t soul food, but are called that by the media. Our people didn’t have these incidences of obesity

in the past due to collard greens and the other things that they used. A lot of this is the result of modern items playing a role in the preparation of food.” Carol Batey said she initially was ridiculed by family members when she began a program of healthy eating. “But my determination to do it was also about my own health and survival, “Batey said. A Cancer survivor and author of multiple books, Batey’s current company “Good Vibrations” deals with the ramifications of changing dietary habits as part of an overall health and wellness makeover program. “I became a model in my ‘50s because I lost so much weight and also my entire attitude changed towards life,” Batey added. Dawn Freeman, a health and nutrition coach added many people are beginning to develop their own food sources via gardens. “The problem with healthy eating sometimes is that folks think you have to spend a lot of money or constantly eat and shop in expensive stores. You can do it on your own with gardens, or you can just buy more fresh fruits and vegetables. It’s not necessary to go into debt to be healthy.” All three speakers blamed media obsession with such items as soft drinks, sweets and processed foods as partly responsible for the obesity problem. They also said in many instances when children are informed early about the importance of good nutrition they frequently put pressure on parents to change their habits. The next film in the series will be “The Powerbroker,” a look at the life and times of Whitney Young, Jr., the longtime executive director of the Urban League. It will be shown at the library Feb. 16 at 3 p.m., once more at the downtown Nashville public library.

Book Review by Kam Williams

“Gymnastics is not my passion anymore. I want to get famous off of running track, or I want to try dancing, or become a singer. I can get a job at ChickFil-A in Virginia Beach… I just want to be a normal teenage kid. I am so homesick.

Legendary singer Chaka Khan gave a unforgettable performance during UNCF An Evening of Stars show (photo by BET)

By Rych McCain, Twitter@rychmccain; Facebook, www.rychmccainhollyhoodnotes.blogspot.com

The BET Networks will air the UNCF (United Negro College Fund) 34th annual “An Evening of Stars” this Saturday, January 26 and Sunday, January 27, 2013, 10PM ET/ PT and 9PM CST, check your area local listing for times. The show was taped in front of a live audience on December 1, 2012 at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium. The entire evening from the red carpet arrivals, to the performances, was indeed magical! This event was formerly known as “The Lou Rawls Parade of Stars” which first aired in 1979. During its 34 year history, the show has raised over $200 million dollars that has helped hundreds of thousands of students attend college, with an astonishing 90% graduation rate among the recipients. Actor Anthony Anderson brilliantly hosted the broadcast and kept the audience in stitches with laughter. The presenters included Amber Riley, Keenen Ivory Wayans, Keke Palmer, Kim Coles, Laz Alonso, Loretta Devine, Shaun Robinson, Sheryl Underwood, Tatyana Ali, Terrence J, Tracee Ellis Ross, Usher Raymond, Wayne Brady and the President of UNCF, Dr. Michael Lomax. The performers included Keyshia Cole, Melanie Fiona, Trey Songz, Tyrese Gibson, Yolanda

Adams, Anthony Hamilton and Eric Benet. As good as the above mentioned talent was for the evening, Faith Evans got them going with an emotional performance, while Charlie Wilson burned a hole in the stage taking them back old school. Then of course the lady of the hour Chaka Khan, not only came out looking as slim and fine as she did in the 70’s, but she had the entire house standing on their feet thoughout her entire set. In short; Chaka turned that mutha out! Dr. Michael L. Lomax , President and CEO of UNCF,was beaming with well earned pride on the star studded Red Carpet arrivals. When asked if the scholarship need increases every year, Dr. Lomax responds, “The need does get bigger. We’ll award 13,000 scholarships this year and we’ll have to turn down 100,000 people because we can’t support all of them who are worthy. We are really trying to talk to other young people because we want them to get on the same journey that so many young people are currently on, and that is we are giving scholarships. We make real for the young people who will tune into this program, that if they will get on this journey, make the sacrifices and work hard, there are people who will support them.” For those high school and even middle school students who want to get involved with UNCF to assist in their college educational career, no matter where ever they may live in the country, Dr. Lomax expresses, “We are going to have a very active social network opportunity with this broadcast. So young people can decide that they want to be on the show next year and they want to receive a scholarship. They’ll be able to apply and tell their stories. There will be avenues for them. We want this show to help us build the show for next year. We will be taking our ‘Empower Me Tour.’ We will have our website and there will be all kinds of ways for young people to get to know us over the course of the year, along with giving us an opportunity to get to know them and to help them get on the journey. Hopefully, we’ll bring several of them to ‘An Evening of Stars’ next year.” To financially support this most worthy cause with your tax deductible donations call the UNCF at 202-810-0200 or go to their website www.uncf.org to donate on line.

MLK Continued from page 1A at Jefferson Street Missionary Baptist Church were 92Q’s Connie Donnell hosted a youth event. Shortly after, local dignitaries including Mayor Karl Dean, Senator Thelma Harper and Councilman Brady Banks took to the front of the procession and lead the crowd towards the Gentry Center. The change in time and program to accommodate President Obama’s second inauguration was definitely worth it according to Ardana Foxx. She has participated in the march every year. She recalls the first time she came to the celebration 28 years ago when her daughter was just a baby. “It’s so historic to me, not just because it’s MLK Day on President Obama’s inauguration, but it’s also the 100th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclama-

tion,” said Foxx. All the more reason why Patricia Stokes, one of the event organizers and CEO of the Nashville Urban League, says the committee made special changes this year. The committee began meeting in September. Plans for the MLK Day event were going on as scheduled each year, but things changed after President Obama was re-elected. “Of course we had to be flexible to coordinate activities with what’s going on in Washington. We were trying to continue our tradition of honoring Dr. King knowing people wanted to watch and witness the inauguration,” added Stokes. “I think it was the perfect thing to do. There’s no other speaker I think anyone would have wanted to hear. I’m so proud of who we are and who God made us to be. This is only the beginning of what God has in store for us,” said Foxx.

Three bus loads drove Tennesseans to Washington DC for the second inauguration of Barack Obama. Over 200 People traveled from Nashville, Cookeville, Knoxville, and Bristol Tennessee. The three day trip included visits to museums and monuments as well as the inauguration and inaugural parade. The trip was sponsored by johnsmithmarketing.com and Nashville radio station 92Q. (See complete story and photos in the next issue of the Tribune)

Journalist Continued from page 1A For myself I couldn’t see Obama losing. I did not see the now notorious First Election Debate, but all the reports I read were pretty scathing. Nevertheless, from my vantage thousands of miles away, Romney did not seem to have what it would take to unseat one of the most popular U.S. presidents of recent years. There was, however, always that lurking doubt. After all, four years ago it seemed almost inconceivable that America would really elect a black president. Segregation, after all had been within living memory and slavery just a few generations past. Yes, times had changed, but… If 2008 was the token election of an African American, then, to me, 2012 was the test election. Was America just doing a little PR and saying to the world “Hey, we’re liberal. See!” and then, once that box was checked, return to the hundreds of years of status quo. Of course that did not turn out to be the case and by the time I pulled up at the campus the election was won and what had been planned as an event to watch the results came in turned into a celebration instead. Obama is popular in Belfast. We get how significant it is that he is in the White House. We’re as affected as the rest of the world by his easy charisma and general sense of decency. It’s refreshing. However, there is disquiet in some

quarters at his administration ordering four-times as many drone strikes as George W Bush and moves to clamp down on whistleblowers. There’s not widespread support for military operations in Afghanistan, and before that Iraq. We do tend to see the US as more war-hungry than necessary and are suspicious about the battles it chooses to fight, that they’re more about economic imperatives and its own security than the great good of the world. Ireland in general loves US presidents, though. Before they’re even elected we find their `Irish roots’ – yes Obama has them too! – and as soon as they set foot in the Emerald Isle they’re whisked off to the little village where their folks hail from to meet their long lost cousins. I don’t know what we’ll do when we get the first US president with no Irish roots. I wonder if that would have more to say about changing demographics in the US than anything else so far. Last time we had two of our journalists in Washington for the inauguration. By all accounts the atmosphere in the capital was electric that day. This time I’m in Belfast’s sister city of Nashville on the big day, learning about the parallels between the two, some of which were unexpected. When I get back home I plan to write a feature about that which we hope will also appear in The Tennessee Tribune. I will definitely be reporting back about how friendly and kind everyone has been during my stay.

ing so we could do projects like summer jobs for the kids, trips, girl scouts and all of that,” Lloyd recalled. One day a skinny 24 year-old named Barack Obama walked in the door to interview for the community organizer position. Impressed by Obama’s attitude, Lloyd hired him and found herself impressed by the young man more and more with each meeting. According to her, the group would come up with a project idea and at the next meeting, Obama would return with a well researched and thought-out plan. “He was always already prepared. By the time we had our next meeting, he had everything figured out. He would prepare us because we wouldn’t know what to do. He was really something.” She struck up a friendship with Obama, whom she described as “very laid back with a rickety old car.” In fact, she attended Obama and Michelle’s wedding. “His mother was still alive then, and some of his brothers from Africa were there,” she said. “One of his sisters was there. I still got the place-card from the reception with our table number on it.” Lloyd says the place-card is also in Obama’s book, “Dreams from My Father.” Looking back, Lloyd admits that she had no idea that her one-time employee would become president. “You don’t even think like that,” she said. “All we wanted to do was our next project.”

When Lloyd found out in the ‘90s that Obama was going into politics, she assumed it would be on the local level. When he ran for president and won in 2008, Lloyd was surprised. “It blew my mind,” she said. “Him being the first Black president was something my generation didn’t think would happen.” Lloyd, now 83, is very vocal about the fact that Obama has received unfair hatred and criticisms because of his race. Lloyd says that no other president in history has been over-analyzed the way Obama has. “Other presidents aren’t watched under such a microscope. They want to make something out of everything he does.” Lloyd was not invited to Obama’s first inauguration in 2009, but was delighted to be a part of his second one. “This means a lot to me because he won’t be able to run again,” she told The Tennessee Tribune. Lloyd is still on great terms with the Obamas. “I saw Michelle last year when she was in Nashville,” Lloyd said. “Michelle said, ‘Oh my God, it’s you!’ I smiled and said, ‘Yes, I’m still around.’ The two reminiscenced and took pictures together. Lloyd returned to Nashville after the death of her husband and is a member of New Hope Missionary Baptist Church. She has 11 children, 24 grandchildren and 19 great-grandchildren. She is regularly present at their graduations and other functions. Lloyd says she is just as proud of her family as she is of her former employee. “I’m proud of my skinny boy. He deserves it.”

No Quid Pro Quo: Christian Compassion and the Spirit of Giving Message by Rev. Jason Curry of Fisk Memorial Chapel

Rev. Jason Curry, Ph.D.

I find great value in reading the entire bible over the length of a year. I look forward to reading my bible daily; however, I re-

cently realized that some months proved to be more challenging than others. It took me years to realize that if I followed the daily schedule, I would not read the words and stories or parables of Jesus for months at a time. I quickly adjusted my daily routine, so that I could read about the life of Christ every day. I’m beginning to believe that our intellectual and experiential proximity or “closeness” to the life of Christ through daily bible study can make all of the difference in the world for the life of the Christian. Recently, I was greatly inspired by a passage of scripture which said that Jesus was moved with compassion;

therefore, he fed five-thousand people (Matthew 14:13-21). The passage was fascinating because Jesus didn’t ask for anything in return for his service, expression of love and goodwill. In a statement to his disciples, Jesus told them: “Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give (Matthew 10:8).” When we are paid to work, we receive compensation, and our compensation is often necessary for our survival. However, it is always important to remember the “spiritual benchmark” which should inform our desire to give of ourselves. As a Christian community, our pri-

mary motivation for giving our time or talents in civic, personal, or professional circles should not be monetary compensation or public recognition. Our primary reason for giving the best of our service should be rooted in the love ethic of a suffering servant who was recognized as Jesus Christ. Christ gave selflessly out of love. There was no quid pro quo (e.g., goods and services in exchange for goods and services) with Christ. If we give for the sole purpose of getting, we may distort the Christian message because our giving to others suggests that we are owed something for using the great gifts that God has so graciously

bestowed upon us. The harmful nature of greed is often found in seeking to “get” more than we need or we can ever use. If the giving of our time, talents and resources is always predicated on our getting, then we will quickly lose sight of the sacrificial love of our Lord and Savior. We must work, and we must receive compensation to take care ourselves. However, if at all possible, let us give freely of ourselves, in our homes, businesses and communities in the same manner that Jesus Christ gave freely of himself. “To whom much is given, much is required (Luke 12:48).”

Pearl Ina Adams Easton

Pearl and husband, George, 1939

Pearl Ina Adams Easton was the third child born to the union of the late Muther Adams and Jennie Bell Sanford Adams. Although born in Georgia, the family relocated to Chicago, IL at an early age. She was preceded in death by her siblings Thomas Adams, Anna Adams, and Marie Adams Kelly. She met George Willis Easton Sr. at her older sister Anna’s high school graduation. They were joined in holy matrimony in 1934 and she became the second Pearl Easton in his life, since that was also his mother’s name. From this union, four children were born. Three of her children preceded her in death: Gwendolyn (Alvin) Easton Hurd, Reginald Easton Sr., and Constance (William) Easton Collins. She was also preceded in death by one great-great-grandson. Although Pearl never worked outside the home, she was the powerful and supportive force behind entrepreneur George Easton. She was the face and presence by his side as he opened Chicago nightclubs like The Living Room,

Cozy Corner, and Van Keeler. He was the President of Easton Enterprises, and its subsidiary, Mr. Service Laundromats & Dry Cleaning. He was also Chairmen of the Board of Directors of Food Basket, Inc., and a stockholder in Seaway National Bank. She was definitely the great woman behind a great man. On October 19, 2007, Pearl moved to Nashville, to live with her youngest grandson Terrance Andre` Hurd. After a brief illness in late 2010, she relocated to Good Samaritan Nursing and Rehabilitation Center. This is where she found eternal peace on Friday January 11, 2013. Pearl loved the Lord, loved her family, and loved life! The family of Pearl Easton is so very grateful for all the love and compassion the Nashville community showed to this life-long Chicago resident. Words cannot express the level of gratitude the family has for the staff at Good Samaritan. The family is also genuinely touched by the devotion and care given by her best Nashville “girlfriend” Jackie Bryant.

Wherever she went in the world, she touched hearts and made friends. She gave as much love as she received in return. Her spirit, her love, and her beauty (both inner and outer) will be missed by all who were fortunate enough to have known her! She leaves to cherish her memory her caregiver and devoted grandson, Terrance Andre` Hurd. She is also survived by her younger brother, James “Major” Adams; son, George (Dorothy) Easton Jr.; daughter-in-law, Yvonne Easton; grandsons, Jerry (Yvonne) Easton Sr.; Steven Glass; Reginald Easton Jr.; granddaughters, Gwenetta Gaines; Dwan Gaines Banson; Rochelle Easton; Hildegarde Donald; Daisy (George) Easton Newell; and Sheri Easton; twelve greatgrandchildren, eleven great-great-grandchildren, three great-great-great-grandchildren; a host of nieces and nephews; and countless friends and loved ones.

tween being an “activist scholar” and being a historian? [After starting work on the King Papers Project] I continued to divide my time writing for other scholars and writing for more diverse audiences, including activists seeking guidance and students at the high school level. I believe that each type of writing ultimately enriches and enlivens the other types. Through the course of your research you have had conversations with many key African American civil rights activists, including dedicated organizers such as Ella Baker and Bob Moses. How did you choose which anecdotes to detail in Martin’s Dream? It was difficult to decide what to include. It was painful, for example, to cut a chapter about my experiences in India, including the overseas seminar I taught there and the official congressional delegation I participated in to commemorate the 50th anniversary of King’s trip to India. I suspect I could write another memoir with all the material I had to leave out. In the introduction to Martin’s Dream you write that you will “likely spend more years studying King’s life than he spent living it.” What moments during the course of your research have given you the most clarity about who King was, flaws and all? Certainly my most important new discoveries about King have come from the large quantity of materials I found during the 1990s in the home he had once shared with Mrs. Coretta King. She had always described these papers to me as “personal” and of no historical value, in part because many of them concerned his career as a preacher rather than as a civil rights leader. But these documents have provided many revealing new insights regarding King’s spiritual and intellectual life. I also uncovered the po-

litically infused love letters he wrote to Coretta when they were courting in the early 1950s. Your work on The Autobiography of Martin Luther King Jr. and in-depth familiarity with King’s papers have allowed you to see the March on Washington through his eyes. What would people be surprised to learn about King’s perspective? Many people would be surprised that King’s prepared remarks did not include any reference to his dream. The most memorable section of his most famous speech was an extemporaneous extension of his speech – prompted, he recalled, by the enthusiastic response he was receiving from the audience. In addition to your scholarly publications you wrote the play Passages of Martin Luther King, which has been performed in places like China and the Middle East. What inspired you to transform King’s story into a dramatic performance? I’ve always wanted to write more than historical scholarship, and the play served as a way to bring my research to people who would never even know of the existence of our multi-volume edition of The Papers of Martin Luther King Jr. I also have welcomed and learned much from these opportunities to introduce King to other cultures and to work with very talented, dedicated artists. Knowing King’s work as intimately as you do, what messages do you think he would want to impress upon Americans today? He would want people to know that his Dream was still unfulfilled at the end of his life and remains unrealized even now. He would be a persistent critic of any nation – and any president – that tolerated extensive poverty and continued to waste precious human and material resources on war.

Senate Confirms TSU Grad as U.S. Marshall for Middle TN

Louise Kelton

NASHVILLE (TSU News Service) - The U.S. Senate has confirmed Tennessee State University graduate Louise Kelton to become U.S. Marshal for Tennessee’s Middle District. President Barak Obama nominated Kelton, the long-time Deputy Chief of the Nashville Metro Police, for the post in February. She is the first African-American to hold the post in the state and only the second in the nation. The 57-year-old law enforcement veteran graduated Summa Cum Laude from TSU in 1992 with a bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice. She also holds a master’s degree in Public Service Management from Cumberland University. Kelton, who declined an interview until her transition is complete, lauded the Metro Police for having “dedicated, talented and caring” men and women.

“I will miss the daily interaction with them once I take my oath of office and move to the federal building,” she said. Metro Police Chief Steve Anderson praised Kelton for her “extraordinary leadership” at the Field Operations Bureau, and before that the North Precinct, where she was the commander from 2004 until her appointment by President Obama. “While I am very pleased Louise Kelton has become our new U.S. Marshal, I am personally saddened that she has left our department,” Chief Anderson said. “She truly dedicated her life to the success of this police department and epitomizes the definition of public servant. She has been my greatest supporter and my greatest critic. I will miss both.” New TSU President, Dr. Glenda Baskin Glover called Kelton a “great example of

TSU’s excellence.” “Kelton’s appointment is an accomplishment of which we can all be proud, as she steps into her new role as Middle Tennessee’s US Marshal,” added Dr. Glover. “Furthermore, she is a product of our great institution, exhibiting the character, professionalism, and knowledge that faculty and staff equip our students with preparing them to pursue and obtain optimal careers and advancement.” Kelton joined the Metro Police Department in 1980 as an officer trainee. She worked her way from officer to commander of Metro’s North Precinct in 2004, and four years later, she became deputy chief. As the new U.S. Marshal for Tennessee’s Middle District, Kelton will take over from Denny King, who has held the position since 2002.

Mission, Vision and Plan Successful fundraising begins long before a fundraising plan is ever created. It starts with your organization’s vision and mission. These two items are at the core of non-profit operations. It is the vision and mission that drive your strategic direction and goals. And it is the strategic direction that influences fundraising and the use of funds. The chief executive for your organization is the person responsible for the vision and mission. Depending upon the structure of your organization this person could be the director, executive director, the chief executive officer, the president or chancel-

lor. He or she is the person responsible for ensuring board members, employees, and volunteers understand the mission and vision and are in agreement with these. He is also responsible for ensuring the organization’s strategic direction — as documented in the strategic plan — is rooted in the mission and vision. The work of defining your nonprofit’s mission and vision may have been done years ago. Or, these may be still evolving. Sometimes the process of defining these can appear to be complicated and too time consuming. But clearly defining these is critically important – they are the bedrock

from which you will create your strategic, business, and/or operating plans. They are what will ultimately drive your fundraising. Here’s how it works. Your mission and vision inform the creation of your strategic plan. Your strategic plan sets the path for your operations and activities. Knowing your current and projected future operations and activities informs your fundraising. While you can always raise some money, meeting your fundraising goal will require that you know how much you are seeking to raise and for what current and projected purposes. It all ties back to your mission and vision. Here are our simple definitions. Your vision statement communicates your vision for the future — what you are seeking to achieve. Your mission statement communicates the purpose of your organization. Your strategic plan communicates how you will bring your vision and mission to life.. Your vision and mission statements should be short and concise — one or two

sentences at most, if possible. Your strategic plan can be as simple or as complex as your organization requires. We are partial to short, clearly written plans that include easy-to-understand and easy-tomeasure goals and objectives. Once the vision and mission are established, it is the chief executive’s responsibility to ensure they are understood and that the board and employees are in agreement with them. All parties need to know these statements – and what they mean – inside and out. All need to be able to discuss the vision and mission when talking about the organization. Each needs to know the goals and objectives contained in the strategic plan and the progress being made toward these. These are some of the first steps in building towards fundraising success. © Mel and Pearl Shaw; Mel and Pearl Shaw are the authors of “Prerequisites for Fundraising Success.” They provide fundraising counsel to nonprofits.

as a conscientious objector. He had worked with younger children in Little Rock during the desegregation crisis and had traveled the South, offering guidance and leadership as the ferment for change began to build among the nation’s African American student population. It was Jim Lawson, while a Divinity School student at Vanderbilt, who brought to Nashville the idea for the nowfamous “Tuesday night workshops” on non-violence that made such a difference in training and disciplining the Children. They met regularly in the basement of the Clark Memorial United Methodist Church, located in an area accessible to Fisk, Meharry and Tennessee State. Here they practiced passive resistance. Here they participated as the plan unfolded to change Nashville for the better. As the workshops continued, Lawson was advising students to engage in activities that many of their parents, teachers and friends would initially oppose. His message struck a chord with these students. Their numbers grew. Their actions shocked the white dominated leadership. And, they changed policies, as well as hearts. Because of his role in teaching these students, Rev. Lawson was expelled from Vanderbilt University. He immediately transferred to Boston University where his degree was granted later that year. In more recent times, he has been designated Vanderbilt’s Alumnus of the Year and has served as a distinguished professor there. Diane Nash was born in Chicago and had not been fully exposed to the punishing policies of segregation before moving to Nashville. At Fisk, she emerged as a student leader of what was soon known as “The Nashville Movement.” This was a time when it was considered unseemly for women to lead anything other than home-making and child-rearing. But, the Nashville Movement embraced young women, and Diane Nash often was elected by the Children to speak and act for them all. Faced with paying a fine after she was arrested while supporting the sit-ins in Rock Hill, North Carolina, she flatly refused. To pay the fine, she told the presiding judge, would be to support the unjust system that had brought her to court. She served her fine in jail. Later, in Mississippi, while pregnant with her first child, she faced a judge in Hinds County. To those who wondered at her willingness to face prison while pregnant, she said that a black child anywhere in Mississippi was imprisoned. It was Diane Nash who confronted Mayor Ben West on the plaza facing City Hall as the sit-ins climaxed. It was Diane Nash who put the moral question: “Mister Mayor, is it morally right?” The mayor honestly answered: No. No, he said, it was not morally right to refuse black people service

at lunch counters. David Halberstam’s front page story in The Tennessean the next morning reported that exchange. West was the decisive Nashville voice that gave support to the Children. Within days, the lunch counter desegregation ended in downtown Nashville. Ernest Rip Patton was a music major when he became caught up in the Lawson lectures, the sit-ins and, subsequently, the Freedom Rides. In May of ‘1961, he was one of several Freedom Riders arrested in Mississippi on specious “breach of the peace” criminal charges. He was then convicted in court and sent to Parchman Prison, an institution reputed to be the “worst hell-hole” in the American penal system. On the orders of the Governor of Tennessee, Patton and 13 Freedom Riders convicted with him were expelled from Tennessee State. Refused re-admission the following September, he was denied by state authorities the option of earning a degree. But, he was awarded an honorary degree, along with his expelled classmates, 47 years later. These three members of the Nashville Movement are honored as part of the annual Waller celebration of the King holiday. They remember well that it was Dr. King who singled out the Nashville Movement for providing sustained leadership that made a difference. He defined the Nashville Movement as “The best organized and the most disciplined” initiative in the national movement. “ I came to Nashville,” he said in a speech at Fisk, “not to bring inspiration, but to gain inspiration.”

volved in Reverend James Lawson’s workshops in nonviolent resistance to end segregation. Beautiful and poised, the Chicago native quickly became a leader in The Nashville Movement, and was renowned for her fearless determination and broad vision. It was Nash who, along with fellow leader and former husband James Bevel, pushed for voting rights for every American as a core mission of the Movement, a stance that initially was considered unrealistic but ultimately led to the 1965 federal Voting Rights Act. Nash was chairperson of the Nashville lunch counter sit-ins, and led a powerful silent march to the steps of the Nashville courthouse, where she asked Mayor Ben West if he believed that it was wrong to discriminate against a person solely on the basis of color. The mayor admitted that he did. Three weeks later, Nashville became the first southern city to desegregate its lunch counters. She coordinated the historic Freedom Ride from Birmingham to Jackson in May 1961, and famously told those who tried to dissuade her that she and her fellow students knew the dangers and had prepared their wills. She was arrested and jailed many times, including while pregnant with her first child. In recognition of her extraordinary contributions to the cause of Civil Rights, Nash received one of six awards at the March on Washington in 1963 presented to Negro Women Freedom Fighters; the War Resisters’ League Peace Award for 1965 with James Bevel; the “Distinguished American Award” in 2003 from the John F. Kennedy Library; the LBJ, Award for Leadership in Civil Rights from The Lyndon Baines Johnson Library and Museum in 2004; the 2008 National Freedom Award from the National Civil Rights Museum in Memphis, TN; and the Living Legend Award from the National Voting Rights Museum in Selma, AL in 2009.

joining what became known as The Nashville Movement. “As a Nashvillian, I thought to myself, ‘Why should I let someone else clean up my house?” he has said. Patton was one of five students who drove to Montgomery, AL on May 23, 1961, to participate in the leg of the famous May 1961 Freedom Ride that would travel from Montgomery to Jackson, MS. He boarded a Greyhound on May 24, one of two busses bound for Jackson and certain arrest. He was taken into custody while sitting at the lunch counter in the Jackson bus station, one of 27 Riders arrested on that day. Patton was incarcerated for 40 days, and spent part of his sentence in Mississippi’s notorious Parchman State Prison Farm. While in jail, he and 13 other TSU students who had participated in the Freedom Rides were expelled from the university. Following the Freedom Rides, Patton worked as a jazz musician and later as a long-distance truck driver and community leader. For the past five years, he has represented the Freedom Riders on an annual Civil Rights tour of the Deep South. In 2008, he and the other students expelled from TSU received honorary doctorates. Patton also received an honorary law degree in 2010 from Stetson University College of Law, which sponsors the annual Civil Rights tour.

the power of nonviolent action in Nashville. Using the Gandhi methodology, 30 to 60 people decided to desegregate the city’s downtown. They recruited students like John Lewis, Diane Nash, Curtis Murphy, Bernard Lafayette, Pauline Knight, Paul Laprad, Matthew Walker, Rip Patton and others. In September, Jim Lawson began the weekly workshops on nonviolent theory, history, tactics and discipline. In November, the sit-ins began at Harvey’s and Cain Sloan. The Nashville Movement became the model nonviolent effort and shaped much of the leadership for the next decade of nonviolent action. Congressman Lewis calls Jim Lawson, “the architect of the nonviolent movement in America.” Lawson worked in most of the major campaigns as Director of Nonviolent Education for Dr. King and the Southern Christian Leadership Conference. While in Nashville, 1958 - 1962, he met and married Dorothy Dolores Wood. They have three adult sons and three grandchildren. He continues to preach, teach, lecture, and lead workshops throughout the nation.

Nashville native Ernest Rip Patton, Jr. was a 21-year-old student at Tennessee State University and a drum major in the marching band when he became involved in Reverend James Lawson’s workshops to end segregation. The year was 1959. He recalls that, at the time, many students from out-of-state were

Since 1949, Reverend James M. Lawson, Jr. has worked as a United Methodist clergyman and pastor, and also served in many frontlines for justice and truth. On February 6, 1957, he first shook hands with Dr. King at Oberlin College and consequently migrated to Nashville as the Southern Secretary for the Fellowship of Reconciliation. In that position, he traveled into the urgent places, consulting with people like Daisy Bates and the Little Rock Nine and Fred Shuttlesworth of Birmingham. The Rev. Kelly Miller Smith invited him to join the Executive Committee of the Nashville Christian Leadership Council. Together, they decided to demonstrate

John Seigenthaler, is a well-known journalist and throughout his career has been a champion of the constitutional protections of free expression, guaranteed by the First Amendment. He began his career at the Nashville Tennessean in 1949, and his early assignments included reporting on and editing news accounts concerning the students who participated in the sit-ins and stand-ins that were part of what became known nationally as “The Nashville Movement.” He left journalism in 1960 to work in the election campaign of John F. Kennedy and then served in the Justice Department as administrative assistant to U.S. Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy. In the spring of 1961, he represented the President and Attorney General in negotiating with state officials to assure safe travel to the Freedom Riders. On May 20, 1961, a violent mob met the Freedom Riders on their arrival at the bus terminal at Montgomery, AL. In seeking to aid Freedom Riders under attack, he was assaulted and knocked unconscious by the mob and was hospitalized. The Kennedy administration immediately rushed 400 U.S. Marshals to Alabama, and the National Guard was called out to quell the mob violence in that state. In 1962, Seigenthaler returned to journalism as editor of The Tennessean. Under his leadership, the newspaper was a strong editorial voice for racial justice and civil liberties. In 1982, he became founding editorial director of USA Today, and continued to serve as the chief news executive at The Tennessean. On his retirement from both newspapers in 1991, he founded the First Amendment Center at Vanderbilt University to promote discussion, debate and dialogue about rights of free expression.

NHL

Preds Lose Second Straight Via the Shootout

By Ron Wynn

The Nashville Predators are discovering that shootouts aren’t exactly their friend, at least in the first two games of the new National Hockey League season. The Preds lost their second straight home game Monday night in overtime on a shootout to the St. Louis Blues 4-3. The defeat closely resembled their opening night 3-2 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets. Both came in shootouts after the opposition scored late goals to tie the game. While the Predators did get a point for each of the games, they ended their first home stand with no wins. The St. Louis Blues were Central Division winners two seasons ago, but an also-ran last season. They now have former Dallas Stars and Stanley Cup winning coach Ken Hitchcock in charge, and Monday looked nothing like the team that the Predators beat four times in six tries last season. St. Louis took an early 1-0 lead, but the Predators quickly tied the score and the game was a tight one throughout regulation and overtime. The Predators had a third period 3-2 lead, but a goal by the Blues’ Alex Pietrangelo at the 12:10 mark of the third period tied the game again at 3-3 and set up the eventual overtime and shootout.

This Day in Sports

T.J. Oshie and Alexander Steen each scored during the shootout, while Craig Smith and Sergei Kostitsyn failed to do so for the Predators. Ironically, they were stopped by a replacement goalie Brian Elliott, whom Hitchcock put in net replacing Jaroslav Halak after the Predators went ahead despite being outshot by a wide margin. Elliott kept the Predators off the scoreboard for the rest of the game, plus the shootout. “Shootouts are funny because two years ago this was a good team,” Hitchcock told the Associated Press. “Last year we weren’t a good team. I’m telling you these points now are big ones.” “We haven’t been beaten in a game, we’ve been beaten in, a little bit of what you might say is a skills competition,” Predators coach Barry Trotz said. “But it’s huge getting those extra points. I mean if you can get them in the shootout, then let’s take them.” Exciting Blues’ rookie Vladimir Taransenko had a goal and two assists. Andy McDonald also had a goal and two assists. Kevin Shattenkirk added two assists. Patric Hornqvist had a goal and two assists for the Predators. Mike Fisher had a power play goal. Martin Erat added two assists. Despite being outshot 39-24 over the game, the Predators stayed close thanks

On this day in 1950 Jackie Robinson made baseball history one more time. Robinson signed the highest contract in the history of the then Brooklyn Dodgers, a deal for $35,000 a year in 1950 dollars. That season Robinson led the National League in double plays made by a second baseman (133). He hit .328, stole 12 bases and scored 99 runs. A film based on his life “The Jackie Robinson Story,” with Robinson playing himself and co-starring Ruby Dee, was also released. Jackie Robinson’s exploits as Major League Baseball’s first Black player in the modern era are well known. For his career, which lasted from 1947-1956, he hit .311, was six-time All Star, 1947 Rookie-of-the-Year, and 1949 MVP and batting champion. His role in ensuring the integration of baseball is among the most important in sports history, but he was also a community activist who got involved in politics and economics during his post-baseball years. He was selected for the Hall of Fame in 1962. Robinson died in 1972. A new film, “42” that celebrates his legacy will be released this spring. MLB has also permanently retired his number 42.

to another standout game from Pekka Rhinne. But the Predators can’t be happy about giving up late goals in two consecutive contests, and not getting a win in either game. Tuesday’s game matched the Predators against the Minnesota Wild for the first time since the Wild signed former Predators’ alternate captain and NHL All-Star Ryan Suter to a 13-year, $98 million dollar contract last year. It also marks the start of a lengthy seven-game road trip where they won’t be back in Bridgestone Arena until the first week of next month. The Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus will occupy the arena much of the time they are on the road. The Tuesday night game was televised on Fox TN. The Predators will then travel to St. Louis on Thursday and Anaheim on Saturday. The trip continues with games at Phoenix Jan 28 and defending Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles Jan. 31. They have a pre-Super Bowl Sunday game Feb. 2 at St. San Jose and another Feb. 5 at St. Louis. They won’t have a home contest until Feb. 7, when LA comes to town. Monday’s 17,113 sellout was the Predators’ 15th straight dating back to last season.

BY RON WYNN Blacks Shut Out of NFL Coaching/GM Jobs Everyone from CBS’ NFL Today crew to Chris Rock had something to say last week when the NFL finishing filling all available vacancies for its head coaching and GM positions. There were no (as in ZERO) Blacks hired for either head coaching slots or general manager positions, an embarrassment so blatant the NFL issued a statement expressing its regret, and reports circulated that the league is considering extending its “Rooney Rule” (a requirement that at least one minority be interviewed for any open coaching or GM position on an NFL team) to coordinator jobs as well. The shocker was Lovie Smith, longtime coach of the Chicago Bears, not landing another job. He did interview for the Buffalo Bills position, but did not get it. Smith, a former topflight defensive coordinator, publicly announced he would sit out the year rather than take a coordinator’s job, a position some found strange, others thought admirable. Obviously, no team can be compelled to hire anyone. There are only 32 teams, the NFL isn’t a public or government entity, and individual owners are free to decide for themselves. What’s happened over the last couple of years has been when Black coaches get fired, they are replaced by white ones. The fired Blacks seldom get rehired. The same holds true in colleges, even though this bowl season was highlighted by big wins that Black coaches posted at Stanford, Louisville, Texas A&M and Vanderbilt. Interestingly, the NBA has also suddenly found itself a few Black coaches short, with the firings of Mike Brown at LA, Avery Johnson at Brooklyn and Alvin Gentry at Phoenix. Gentry was temporarily replaced by another Black man in former Detroit Piston Lindsay Hunter. But the difference is the NBA has a long track record of hiring Black coaches, and African-Americans are hired and fired in that league all the time. By contrast, the NFL remains a place where few Blacks get hired at the top, and even fewer get a second chance if fired. Anyone hear of Ray Rhodes again, fired at Green Bay after one .500 season? It’s doubtful you’ll see Romeo Crenell again, at least not as a head coach, though he at least did get two cracks at it with two bad teams (Cleveland, Kansas City). There are no simple solutions or easy answers to this problem, but one thing seems pretty clear. So long as there is also zero Black ownership in the NFL, there’s not going to be a lot of room for error by the few Blacks who do finally make it to the top of the coaching ladder. That’s something you can bet no one has to tell Mike Tomlin (Pittsburgh), Leslie Frazier (Minnesota) or Marvin Lewis (Cincinnati).

What’s Going on in Sports: The NFL has the week off, but there are still plenty of games and stories in the sports world. The Predators are in the midst of a seven-game road trip, and we’ll have a story on their progress. Vanderbilt’s men face Top 20-ranked Missouri, while the Lady Commodores square off against arch-rival Tennessee and Alabama. Tennessee has a tough game against Ole Miss, then look for revenge against Alabama. TSU has its toughest OVC road trip with games at Eastern Kentucky and Morehead State. Join us in both the Tennessee Tribune’s print edition and online for continuing coverage of all these teams and more.

COLLEGE BASKETBALL

TSU Loses First OVC Game to Belmont By Ron Wynn

Basketball games can’t be won in the first half, but enough bad things can happen to make winning extremely difficult. That was the case Saturday night for the Tennessee State Tigers, as they lost their first OVC game to the Belmont Bruins 78-66 at the Curb Events Center. TSU seemed nervous coming out of the gate, and played perhaps their worse 12 minutes of the season in the opening half, even worse than previous feeble efforts against Missouri and MTSU. They missed 14 of their first 15 shots from the floor and overall 15 of 17. That horrid display, coupled with equally inept defense, got them behind by 30 points (30-7). Just as many in the near capacity crowd of 4,102 were wondering how did this team win seven straight games TSU came roaring back. They began double-teaming, both on the perimeter and down low, gambling on causing turnovers and getting steals. The Tigers also got more penetration from the guards, who began getting the ball down low to Kellen Thornton and MJ Rhett, finally exploiting TSU’s size advantage. The Tigers rode a hot streak from three-point territory by Jordan Cyphers, making a bid to return to the starting lineup. He hit three in a row at one point. Cypers helped fuel a lengthy period where TSU was clearly the ag-

23 points, hitting seven of 10 three-point tries. His torrid shooting forced Belmont to double him on the perimeter, which opened the driving lanes for other TSU players. Thornton helped the Tigers to a 41-32 advantage on the boards as he had 11 rebounds to go along with 16 points. The Tigers were hurt by Patrick Miller being less effective than usual. This was his worse game since the Tigers began their streak. He had problems with turnovers and his shooting was off (only four of 15). Miller contributed in other ways, handing out 12 assists. TSU now has a couple of difficult road games ahead. They face Eastern Kentucky, who narrowly lost to Belmont at Curb last week, on Thursday night, then head to Morehead State for a Saturday game.

The Lady Vols’ next game will be Thursday in Nashville against arch-rival Vanderbilt. It’s good for the Lady Commodores that the matchup occurs in Nashville, where they have been virtually unbeatable. Things haven’t been nearly as nice on the road. Sunday they were defeated

Tennessee finally got a dominant game from forward Jarnell Stokes Saturday against Mississippi State. Stokes had 18 points and 11 rebounds, playing with a fluidity and confidence previously missing as UT defeated the Bulldogs 72-57.
