Meharry Opens New GPR Clinic By Gayle Starling-Melvin NASHVILLE, TN — Through the collaboration of Meharry Medical College and the Henry Schein Cares Foundation, Inc., the world’s largest provider of health care products and services to office-based dental, animal health and medical practitioners, Meharry’s School of Dentistry (SOD) now has a newly renovated, advanced General Practice Residency (GPR) clinic known as the Henry Schein Cares Graduate Programs Residency Clinic. The cost of the clinic, inclusive of equipment and renovations, was $1.1 million. The dedication of the GPR clinic took place Friday, May 9, 2014 in the S. S. Kresge Learning Resource Center on Meharry’s campus while the ribbon cutting ceremony took place at the clinic located on the third floor of the SOD. Cherae Farmer-Dixon, D.D.S., M.S.P.H., dean of the SOD, said that the day’s events were truly remarkable. “Meharry’s partnership with Henry Schein and the unveiling of the Henry Schein Cares Graduate Programs Residency Clinic furthers our ability to provide our students with an invaluable, hands-on,

training experience using the latest technology, while at the same time, providing an opportunity for students to give back to our community,” said Farmer-Dixon. The keynote speaker for the dedication was the honorable Louis W. Sullivan, M.D., former secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Services, founding dean of the Morehouse School of Medicine, and an active health policy leader, minority health advocate and author. “Many patients will benefit from this new clinic and [the GPR] will contribute to those much needed advances to dental care.” said Sullivan. “Tomorrows dentists will learn the latest in techniques and will be leaders in enhanced racial and ethnic diversity in the patients they serve.” Stanley M. Bergman, chairman of the board and CEO of Henry Schein deemed the partnership as a privilege and honor. “It began with a dream with ideas written down on an envelope,” said Bergman. “Now, this dream, having come to fruition, will help to contribute to the training of Meharry’s future oral health care professionals by providing students with the opportunity to work with the latest digital equipment and technology in this exciting

Francis to Speak at Meharry Commencement NASHVILLE, TN — The classic student of Xavier University of Louisiana is someone who has heart, an appreciation for diligent work, the determination to use his/her talents to the fullest and the courage to ask for help when it is needed. Nobody has embodied those qualities more so than Norman C. Francis, whose administrative career at Xavier has spanned a half-century. A 1952 graduate, Francis returned to his New Orleans alma mater in 1957— following Loyola Law School and two years in the U.S. Army—to begin his administrative career as dean of men. Since his appointment as the University’s first lay president in 1968, Xavier has more than tripled its enrollment, broadened its curriculum, expanded its campus and received national attention for its award-winning academic initiatives. The tradition of academic excellence is consistent with the dreams of its founder, Saint Katharine Drexel and her Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament religious order. Admired for his sharp mind, revered for his modesty and praised for his dedication, Dr. Francis enjoys a prestigious national reputation. In December 2006, he received the nation’s highest civilian award—The Presidential Medal of Freedom—from President George W. Bush. Francis has served in an advisory role to five U.S. presidents—including the historic National Commission on Excellence in Education, whose findings, published in the groundbreaking work A Nation at Risk, created a sense of urgency for bringing about educational reform in the nation’s school system. He has served as chairman or board

of the Louisiana Recovery Authority, helping to oversee the state’s recovery following Hurricanes Katrina and Rita while he led the University’s own recovery and rebuilding effort. He served in that capacity for three years. In New Orleans, Francis serves as chairman of the board of Liberty Bank and Trust; co-chair of the Committee for a Better New Orleans; member of the advisory board of The Times-Picayune Publishing Company; The Fleur de lis Ambas-

sadors Program, as well as other local organizations. Norman C. Francis’ legacy as the first African-American lay president of Xavier University of Louisiana is epitomized in his unwavering commitment to educational and social equality, spiritual enlightenment and community service.

A Medical Volunteer Expedition to Ghana

NASHVILLE, TN — A group of nine Meharry students, seven from the School of Medicine and two from the School of Graduate Studies and Research, along with Sanika Chirwa, M.D., Ph.D., professor of neuroscience and pharmacology with Meharry’s School of Medicine, embarked on a mission of good will to the Republic of Ghana, March 20 – March 30, 2014. Their mission, dubbed “Meharry for Africa,” proved to be a productive and highly memorable educational experience. Once in Ghana, Meharry students were divided into two groups and were teamed up with local medical students on clinical rotations in the obstetrics and gynecology department at KorleBu Teaching Hospital in Accra, Ghana. They were presented with unique opportunities to observe and learn about the provisions of obstetric care within settings with limited resources and personnel. Professors Joseph Seffah and Samuel Obed, in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital, were the local hosts who oversaw the group’s activities while in Ghana. In addition, Dr. Chirwa had the opportunity to make presentations related to his “Sleep and Pregnancy” study being

conducted at Meharry and subsequently held discussions with his counterparts at Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital reviewing prospects for future funding with organizations such as, the National Institutes of Health, the United States Agency for International Development and the Gates Foundation. Overall, the trip to Ghana was characterized by many defining moments that included the somber occasion of at-

tending the burial ceremony for the local Queen Mother and the deeply emotional tours of the infamous Elmina Castle, first established as a trade settlement and later becoming one of the most important stops on the route of the Atlantic slave trade, where the majority of those enslaved initially stopped before they were transported to the New World, America. Students were emotional as they posed inside the horrific “door of no return”

which memorialized the final exit point of the slaves out of Africa. The “door of no return” is a reminder to all about the human drudgery and debasing atrocities of African slavery. In Kakum National Park, located in the coastal localities of the Central Region of Ghana, everyone took part in walking along the suspended canopies surrounded by the giant trees of the rainforest. Perhaps the most touching, and rewarding experience, was the day-long visit to the local “City of Refuge Children’s Village (CRCV).” The CRCV is run by the City of Refuge Ministries and it is a place where children, who have been orphaned, abandoned and rescued from slavery, have come to call home. It defies description to see how hope is being restored in these children who were without any other means or options to guarantee their survival and a bright future. The Meharry for Africa group plans to hold an “open day” event at Meharry in the near future where they will share their amazing stories about their most rewarding and incredible visit to Ghana.

Meharry’s Students Eager to Help Uninsured NASHVILLE, TN — Tuesday, September 24, 2014, marked the one-year anniversary of Meharry’s 12 South Community Clinic, Meharry Medical College’s first and only student-run health clinic, supervised by licensed physicians and dentists. Meharry 12 South was founded to fulfill the mutually beneficial goals of addressing the needs of Nashville’s uninsured patient population while providing a venue for students to refine their medical skills. The board of directors is composed of medical students from all years who are completely responsible for planning, overseeing and managing all aspects of the clinic. With the support of Charles P. Mouton, M.D., M.S., senior vice president for health affairs, dean, School of Medicine and on the faculty advisory board, these students have been able to establish and sustain the clinic throughout the first year of operation. In just one year, the clinic has entrenched itself in the community, steadily building its patient population to include over 130 patients. During its inaugural year, Meharry 12 South operated solely as a primary care facility and served as a volunteer opportunity exclusively for medical students. As of September 2013,

the clinic transitioned to include dental students who are on hand to provide oral cancer screenings. October heralded the commencement of the clinic’s Influenza Vaccine Initiative. Third-year medical student, Andrew Marshall, financially spearheaded this endeavor via his Ingram Scholarship. With these funds, Meharry 12 South was able to purchase flu shots and coordinate a training session where 25 medical students were trained, under the supervision of a physician and nurse, in how to properly administer vaccines. November brought further expansion to the clinic as it hosted its first sub-specialty night in pediatrics. Cardiology and other sub-specialties are to follow. Meharry 12 South has transitioned from paper records to an electronic medical records system. This gives volunteers a more comprehensive clinical experience and allows multiple members of the health care team to simultaneously track each patient’s progress. The news of Meharry 12 South’s endeavors in the community is rapidly spreading. The clinic recently received a $5,000 grant from The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee after they toured the clinic and were impressed

In the driver’s seat… The 2014 Ford Taurus SHO

In the Driver’s Seat...

The Tennessee Tribune 5A

Take 10

The flagship model in the Ford lineup is at once exhilarating and arguably, a new standard in American luxury. I found the Taurus SHO excels in both technology and performance. The SHO looks like, feels like, and drives like the best Taurus out there. The SHO acronym might as well mean "everything," because that is what this roomy and wide speedster brings as standard.

New Books Designed to Increase Fundraising for Our Readers...

African American Men Make Giving Easy and Meaningful Part two of a two part series African American men are pooling their money to create positive community change. The Ujima Legacy Fund brings together men who invest $1,100 and collectively increase their impact. Founder Reginald Gordon shares a few details so you can create a fund in your community. We pick up our interview with Gordon with a discussion about grantmaking. “Once we have reviewed all of the applications, a representative group of Ujima men go visit the site of the most compelling applicants,” Gordon shared. “The next step is for those applicants to make a presentation to the entire membership. After the membership has heard from each of the top applicants, then the members vote. The agency with the most votes is awarded the grant. Last year, we gave $20,000 to Partnership for the Future (www.partnershipforthefuture.org). This year Ujima received proposals for funding from 23 applicants. We will vote on our 2014 grantee in mid May.” The fund started through barber shop conversations, now “we are using word of mouth, email and social gatherings to spread the news about the Ujima Legacy Fund. We asked each member from last year to try to recruit two other men to join this year. We have been successful in asking for time on the agenda at regularly scheduled African American male networking events and meetings, like fraternity meetings. The response has been overwhelmingly positive.” Joy has accompanied the process. “One of the unexpected joys is the renewed sense of brotherhood. We now have a band of brothers who have made a commitment to transform our community by financially supporting critical pathways to success for our young adults,” Gordon shared. “We actually have a Ujima Legacy Fund lapel pin that we wear to symbolize our unity of purpose.

The word has spread around town that African American men in Richmond are coming together to give money to causes that they want to support. We definitely have helped expand and diversify the list of major philanthropic donors in Richmond. We have even inspired black women in Richmond to begin the process of creating their Written and published by Purchase now own giving circle. We have jokingly asked them our own Mel & Pearl Shaw Amazon.com to not raise more money than us their first year.” Gordon suggests checking out information w w w. s a a d a n d s h a w. c o m about the Ujima Legacy Fund on the Community Foundation of Richmond website. “Get a small group of men (no more than six) who want to champion the creation of a giving circle.

THURSDAY, MAY 15 - 21, 2014

Meharry’s Mission Motivates and Inspires Students For third-year dental student Bruno Kuloba, his acquaintance with dentistry began early—with his siblings. “In Africa, it’s different than in the United States,” Kuloba said. “There’s no dentist really that you go to. It wasn’t a common thing...Somebody in the family would be kind of appointed as the family dentist, as you say, so they would be responsible for pulling the teeth...and that was my job. Whenever I was young I pulled my older sister’s teeth, my younger brother’s teeth.” It was after coming to America that Kuloba, now from Pensacola, Florida, found dentistry could actually be a vocation.

the reasons why Meharry Medical College is special to students and alumni, and why they chose Meharry. “This is by far one of the most diverse places I’ve ever been to,” said Anthony Adkins, a Meharry fourth-year dental student from Plantation, Florida. “There are people from every socioeconomic status, every walk of life,” he said.

Letitia Lyons 4th-year Medical Student

Anthony Adkins 4th-year Dental Student

Bruno Kuloba 3rd-year Dental Student

“Whenever I came to the United States—just going through high school—I came to find out that dentistry is actually an occupation,” he said. “People get paid to do that.” The variety of student stories, backgrounds and histories helps to explain

For fourth-year medical student Letitia Lyons, attending Meharry is an example of a life-changing opportunity that was extended to her. “When you think about the students that Meharry recruits, we don’t come from the backgrounds where there are doctors in our lineage,” she said. Originally from Newport News, Virginia, Lyons was recruited as an undergraduate to play basketball at Old Dominion University. “Most times, we’re either the first college graduate [in the

family]—and definitely the first professional school graduate—and so we don’t necessarily have that support system that can say, ‘Hey, we’ll take care of all your bills,’ cause it’s not happening,” she said. “I think that’s important because, again, it puts out there minority physicians who are equipped to provide great care.” Adkins said that a feeling common to the overwhelming number of Meharry students is the desire to go back to their communities and give back. “I think that’s a very unique thing to Meharry. It’s not something that’s said, it’s something that’s understood.” As a result of the College’s mission to serve the underserved, many who want to be physicians, dentists or biomedical scientists find a home at Meharry they likely would not have found anywhere else.

cal health care. “A lot of people, believe it or not, have not been exposed to how to properly brush your teeth, how to floss,” Kuloba said. “So, whenever we get the opportunity—regardless of how busy the day is—going down to that clinic and making a difference in someone’s life... it means a lot. You can see the joy expressed in their face, and that...touches me. It reveals something about the students themselves, too, Kuloba said— you can have an impact on the community regardless of how busy you are. “That’s what Meharry teaches you,” he said. “You can always spend your time on things you value. Meharry 12 South is something that definitely has...a part of my heart.” Because of that sense of mission among Meharry students and graduates, the College has become known for its nurturing environment, comprehensive training and dedication to service.

Kristen Crittle 3rd-year Medical Student

“The thing that’s different is when Meharry takes a chance on a student, it’s taking a chance on somebody who maybe didn’t graduate summa cum laude,” said Kristen Crittle, third-year medical student from Terry, Mississippi, “a chance on somebody who maybe they left school for a while but then decided to come back. But, those people are from the communities they need the most,” she said. Lyons agreed. “Meharry is one of those unique places that actually looks at the total person instead of what they look like on paper...I think that’s totally awesome.” Adkins said he wants to be clear about what it takes to become a doctor at Meharry. “I’m no different than any other 28-year-old man. I make mistakes. There’s nothing godly or special about me at all,” he said. “That’s what I want people to know: That there isn’t something heavenly about becoming a doctor. That it’s just putting one foot in front of the other and doing a little bit everyday, and you can wake up and accomplish your dreams.” For many Meharry students, the rewards of service begin to come early. Through the College’s student-run Meharry 12-South Community Clinic, future health care providers come in contact with patients who don’t have the resources to get quality oral and medi-

Kelly Harris, Ph.D. candidate in the School of Graduate Studies and Research, said she encounters people frequently who have a kind of faith in what Meharry graduates bring to underserved communities, saying simply: “I know Meharry.” Even outside of Nashville, Meharry’s reputation carries, Harris, from Memphis, Tennessee, said. “It carries so much weight because, yes, in the grand scheme of things, people [say] ‘Oh, [Meharry] doesn’t have the biggest name,’ but in the population we’re trying to reach, it has the best name out there.” Lyons said the reputation of Meharry graduates often precedes them. “I think that Meharry is so important because we take everyone. And, in addition to that, the care is not lacking—it’s actually excellent care.” Crittle said those who choose to financially support Meharry are not only investing in future health care professionals, but in the lives of others, including the underserved. “When you give to Meharry, you’re not just giving to a school that’s going to build another building or a school that’s going to just line it’s pockets, or do things that are not necessarily benefitting the students or the patients,” Crittle said. “You’re giving to Meharry because the students that you’re giving to are the ones who are going back to...serve those underserved communities—are the ones who are going to go back and say, you know what, Meharry did this for me.” And, as for faithful alumni who give back to Meharry, financially supporting the health care leaders of the future, giving back means “I want to push you through the same path or a better path than I went through,” said Crittle. For Lyons, however, her love of Meharry comes down to this: “It’s just the family atmosphere here,” she said. “I’ve been to other universities, but there’s never been a place that I felt like, you know, I could call these people family.” Excerpt from video produced by The Media Scientist Labartories

Schein From Page 1A Commissioner John Dreyzehner, M. D., M.P.H., with the Tennessee Department of Health and State Senator Thelma Harper, District 19, were among the dignitaries in attendance. “Oral health care is a determinant to overall health, and it doesn’t get on the agenda like it should be” said Dreyzehner. “This clinic will enable Meharry dental students to reach out to communities and populations who are in dire need of oral health care.” Senator Harper stepped up to the podium and declared the day as an “awesome time.” She said, “It is such a blessing when we have the resources for an occasion such as this. Meharry is always on the move and we’re loving it!” Anita Galloway Edwards, chief resident of the GPR, and a 2009 graduate of Meharry’s SOD, ended the program saying that the residents who will ben-

To all of you, we say thank you.” The new facility has 10 dental operatories, the latest in digital technology, including low radiation intraoral x-rays, 3-D cone beam imagery (which allows for enhanced diagnostic capability for pathology and cancer detection), one day porcelain crown fabrication, advanced water purification systems, advanced sterilization systems, the latest electronic health record system, a three watt soft laser and LED operatory lighting. There are handicap accessible rooms, a large, comfortable waiting room, a staff lounge and break room, a conference room,

study alcoves for residents, a modern laboratory facility and staff offices and private patient interview cubicles. Currently, there are eight general practice residents and four oral surgery residents using the new clinic. With this attractive addition, the dental school will draw residents, patients and faculty to the new facilities. Also, it will help the School to provide an improved and efficient lower cost alternative for emergency adult care and treatment for vulnerable and at risk populations in Middle Tennessee, foster innovation in health care through evidence based interdisciplinary care, enhance the quality of oral health care delivery, produce a workforce that is appropriately trained and culturally-competent, and more effectively promote disease prevention and personal initiative for healthier and more productive lifestyles. The other dental residency program at Meharry is in the field of oral and maxillofacial surgery.

Alumni Ambassadors Tell Why They Support Meharry

NASHVILLE, TN — Through their own contributions, and by encouraging other alumni to give back, Meharry Alumni Ambassadors volunteer their time and energy to raise support for Meharry Medical College. Alumni Ambassadors are advocates, continuing to promote the College by increasing awareness of its mission, achievements, challenges and goals, demonstrating the positive impact that the College continues to have in sustaining and improving the nation’s health care system. The criteria for becoming an Alumni Ambassador is two-fold: a minimum annual contribution of $1,000 to the College and the commitment to encourage contributions from at least five other alumni or friends. In April, the first gathering of the Meharry Alumni Ambassadors assembled on campus. At the inaugural session, members told why they were dedicated to the Ambassador project and discussed plans for a successful nationwide launch of the program. “My personal reason for serving and giving to Meharry is that when attempting to apply to medical school, Meharr y was the first school to respond back in writing of my James McCain, acceptance M.D., ’83 when others wouldn’t even give me an interview.” —James McCain, M.D., ’83, Birmingham, Alabama Gratitude for the opportunities af-

forded by Meharry Medical College is central to Ambassador efforts, seasoned with a sense of obligation to extend the same favor to new Meharrians and mentoring them in their responsibility to pay their own good fortune forward. “I am a neurologist as a direct result of Meharry’s gift of accepting me to their school. This gift is extended to my patients every day. How could I not give back?” — Gretchen H. Campbell, M.D., ’99, Franklin, Gretchen H. Campbell, M.D., ’99 Tennessee Alumni Ambassadors recognize that Meharry has given them the opportunity to serve others — a gift they wish to repay. For the Ambassadors, the College’s motto of “Worship of God Through Service to Mankind” is not just a motto but an ongoing declaration of principle, cemented by their own commitment to lead others in giving back to the College. “Meharr y Jonathan Johnson, gave me the M.D., ’06 foundation to continue in my medical training while Meharry continues to provide strong health care to our community and

throughout the nation, building the foundation for the next generation of health care providers and establishing change and improvement at the College.” —Jonathan A. Johnson, M.D., ’06, Baltimore, Maryland Meharry Alumni Ambassadors have realized the far-reaching effect and influence the College has on their communities and even the world. They have witnessed it first hand. And, they desire to pass on the legacy through interaction with others to encourage them to become to be passionate Collis Johnson, with the same D.D.S., ’73 vision. “Meharr y is a national treasure for all; an institution of history that inspires and encourages people to participate in health care.” —Collis Johnson, D.D.S., ’73, Centennial, Colorado Meharry’s place in history is secured and illuminated by the contributions and deeds of its alumni. The College is indeed a national treasure dedicated to serving all-especially those most in need of care. And, since 1876, it has helped shape American health care through education, research and patient care. “I am, and you are, because Meharry is! Meharry did just that for me. Now, it is time for someone to be because I am. Giving must be an integral part. To whom much is given,

much is expected.” —Arikana Chihombori, M.D., ’86, Murfreesboro, Tennessee It is the obligation of those who have reArikana Chihombori, M.D., ’86 ceived much from Meharry Medical College to not only render service to their communities as health care professionals, but provide aid to their alma mater in the way of financial support. It is the freely-accepted role of the Alumni Ambassadors to help remind their alumni peers, and to lead others who are interested in Meharry’s cause in promoting and helping secure the institution’s prosperity. Ultimately, the goal of all Mehar rians and friends can be simply put: Ali Osman, M.D., ’99 “To make Meharry better for those who come after us!” —Ali Osman, M.D., ’98, Beaumont, Texas Those interested in becoming an Ambassador, should contact the Meharry Alumni Ambassadors’ Liaison, Ms. Gloria D. Sanders, 615-327-6512 or gsanders@mmc.edu

sionate medical and oral health care to the uninsured and underserved. Meharry’s growth is more than new buildings and expanded programs. It is about responding to ever-increasing health care demands by empowering and equipping our students for a future filled with service to others. The need for annual support remains a priority. Whether attending a lecture in the classroom, conducting research in a laboratory or interviewing for a residency position, annual giving supports students through their living and learning experiences every day. I can’t emphasize enough your vital role in these endeavors. Your support has made all the difference for our students, and I’m hoping you will continue to support these dedicated individuals and the next generation of caregivers, trailblazers and leaders.

Like many of our alumni, our students are living examples of our faithbased tradition, “Worship of God Through Service to Mankind.” Your ongoing investment in Meharry helps us continue to stand strong in our legacy and look toward the future with confidence. Your support not only will affect students today, but also will remain with them long into the future. On behalf of the Meharry Medical College community, we thank you for returning to campus. We have so much to be thankful for and share and celebrate together. We appreciate your continued commitment to preserving our mission and securing a more equitable and healthier future for all.

Meharry Sponsors ‘Hindsight is 20/20’ Event

l-r, Dr. Rachael Ross, Gerald Onuoha, graduating medical student, Dr. Ruth Ross Edmonds and Jay-Sheree Allen

NASHVILLE, TN — Congratulations to Jay-Sheree Allen, 3rd-year Meharry medical student, for sponsoring the event, Hindsight is 20/20, held on Meharry’s campus, featuring Ruth Ross Edmonds, D.D.S. 97 and Rachael Ross, M.D. 01. Dr. Ruth is the owner/principal of Braces by Ruth and her sister, Dr. Rachael, is a recurring co-host on the Emmy® Award-winning talk show, The Doctors, a practicing board-certified family medicine physician and sexologist. The siblings were enlightening and sometimes outright funny bringing laughter to the crowd who convened in the Compton-Nelson Auditorium the evening of May 1, 2014 to hear their stories.

They are sisters with the same relatives . . . and that’s where the similarities end! Admitting she was the “regimented, stringent one,” during the program, Dr. Ruth turned to Dr. Rachael and asked her to describe herself. Dr. Rachael quipped, “I studied, but I like to have a good time, so I partied too!” Though they may be like oil and water, it wasn’t long before everyone could see their love and respect for each other and the love they have for their family. Dr. Ruth, graduating number one in her dental class, wore an exquisite, traditional dress, pumps and matching jewelry while Dr. Rachael, donning a typical Hollywood, California (where she tapes The Doctors)

style mini, relaxed, sat back in her chair and showed off her bright gold sneakers. Both were in agreement when it came to giving sound advice to the students in the audience, telling them to “study, choose what you like and like what you choose (referring to their specialties), keep family close, get a GOOD financial advisor and listen to what God is telling you.” Other recommendations? “Build your own brand and don’t be afraid to conduct shameless self-promotion.” In other words, you are allowed to toot your own horn. Students had a chance to ask questions, talk one-on-one with the doctors and pose with them for pics.

Three Meharry Medical Students Take on the Challenge The Statement from the MedPlus Advantage Global Health Challenge “From malnutrition to safe water, chronic disease to access to quality healthcare, a wide variety of diverse global health challenges exist today. Meeting those challenges and improving the quality of life of the world’s most vulnerable populations will require a great deal of innovation, critical thinking and new solutions to today’s most pressing problems.” The Challenge In five minutes or less, tell us the story of who your team is and, from your team’s perspective and experience, what you believe is the most important global health challenge today. Then, tell us how you would address it. That is exactly what Julian Hinson, team captain; Andrew Marshall, team member and JaySheree Allen, team member, all third-year medical students at Meharry Medical College, did by submitting a required

video named “North of Charlotte” along with an essay answering the challenge question, telling their story of how they would address what they consider to be the most important global health issue/challenge today. Up to ten finalists were selected. One winning team will be chosen by a panel of judges with the winners being announced in two to three weeks. The winning team will have the opportunity to work alongside Timmy Global Health (TGH) in either Ecuador, Guatemala or the Dominican Republic to help provide high quality health services to underserved populations. TGH is an Indianapolis-based nonprofit that expands access

to healthcare and empowers students and volunteers to tackle today’s most pressing global health challenges. The nationwide contest is sponsored by AMA Insurance Agency, Inc. The winning team will collaborate directly with TGH as they serve those too often underserved and also learn about the problems the TGH patients face. They will have the opportunity to analyze and think through strategies to solve those challenges. To watch and vote for “North of Charlotte” please visit: medplusadvantageghc.com/northof-charlotte-video/ Help the students represent Meharry across the globe!

Meharry’s Center for Health Policy Hosts Summer Institute NASHVILLE, TN — Meharry Medical College will host the 2014 Summer Institute on Health Policy on June 16 – 27, 2014, in Nashville, Tennessee. The annual summer program is sponsored by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) Center for Health Policy at Meharry Medical College, a multimillion dollar academic research center aimed at developing health policy leaders and diversifying the healthcare workforce. The Summer Institute on Health Policy is a twoweek, rigorous training program that offers intensive, accelerated coursework related to health policy, public health, health economics, law and public policy. Courses are taught by nationally-renowned scholars, researchers, executives and public offi-

cials who bring a wealth of knowledge on how to tackle real-world health policy challenges. The Institute’s first week will be taught by former Metropolitan Nashville-Davidson County Mayor Bill Purcell, who currently practices law at Nashville-based firm, Jones Hawkins & Farmer, PLC. Mr. Purcell has spent more than 30 years in law, public service and higher education as a two-term mayor and five-term representative in the Tennessee General Assembly. His course, “Public Health, Public Policy and the Law,” runs from Monday, June 16 through Friday, June 20, 2014. Teaching the second week is famed economist Julianne Malveaux, Ph.D., whose progressive—and sometimes

controversial—thoughts on race, class, gender, health disparities and their economic impacts can be seen and heard on numerous cable news and talk radio shows. Dr. Malveaux has been a constant contributor to academic life, having most recently served in 2007 as the 15th president of Bennett College for Women for five years. Her course, “Race, Class, Health and Health Policy,” runs from Monday, June 23 through Friday, June 27, 2014. The Summer Institute on Health Policy is free and open to the public. Each course spans one week, meeting daily from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. To register or for more information, visit www. meharryhealthpolicy.org or call 615.327.6202.

Internationally Acclaimed ‘The Suit’ in Nashville at OZ May 22-24 By Janice Malone

The internationally acclaimed Théâtre des Bouffes du Nord production of The SUIT is coming to Nashville. The show will play Nashville’s OZ’s elegantly minimalist warehouse venue for three nights, May 22–24. The production runs 75 minutes, with no intermission. OZ is located at 6172 Cockrill Bend Circle in Nashville, TN. (www.oznashville.com). The Suit is directed by the renowned theater artist Peter Brook, who’s directed over 70 productions in London, Paris and New York, along with his long-time collaborator, Marie-Hélène Estienne. The Suit is a poignant, music-filled tale of marital betrayal and resentment. It provides a unique perspective on apartheid-era life in South Africa. Composer Franck Krawcyzk provides musical direction. Based on South African writer Can Themba’s powerful novella, and adapted for the stage by Mothobi Mutloatse and Barney Simon of Johannesburg’s Market Theatre. The synopsis of The Suit tells the tale about Philomen, a middle-class lawyer who catches his wife, Matilda in the midst of an affair. Her lover flees, leaving behind the eponymous garment of the play—his suit. As punishment, Philemon makes Matilda treat the suit as an honored guest, preparing meals for it, entertaining it and taking it out for walks as a constant reminder of her adultery. The setting of Sophiatown, a teeming township that was erased shortly after Themba wrote his novel, is as much a character in the play as the unfortunate couple, and this production lends it life and energy even with a small cast. “We are just so amazed and excited to have this production in Nashville. Peter Brooks is such an iconic director and artist! We’re in viting everyone from all over the Nashville and surrounding areas to please come out to enjoy this show,” says Laura Snelling, Artistic Director of OZ Nashville. The Suit production has been touring in North America since February of 2013. This is their third American tour. It first premiered at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, and since been performed at such venues as the Kennedy Center, UCLA in Los Angeles and also in San Francisco. Nashville is the final stop for this tour for the American speaking production before it goes back to France. This exquisite work features a very minimal set, yet innovative staging that integrates live musicians among actors and musicians, performing music from sources ranging from Franz Schubert to “Strange Fruit” to Miriam Makeba. According to Lauren, “The storyline may sound a little strong but believe me, the performances are just amazing. The production features actual South African music and songs that are within the entire show. It’s not a musical but the songs are intertwined within the storyline of this couple and what they’re experiencing. Plus, there’s also a narrator. So it’s good storytelling, combined with great music and songs. The actors do an amazing job of creating the scenes for the audience without using a lot of set decorations. It’s an incredible piece of theatre work,” says Ms. Snelling, who came to the OZ organization following posts at the Park Avenue Armory in New York and the Melbourne International Arts Festival in Australia. The Suit production was created for the stage in Johannesburg in the early 1990’s. Peter Brook saw the show when Barney Simon adapted it for the stage in Johannesburg. Mr. Brook took it back to France to do some work on it. They then toured the show around France for

stallation venue nestled amidst artfully landscaped grounds. In addition to presenting celebrated national and international artists, OZ serves as a catalyst for local creativity. The organization provides a platform for local artists through the monthly TNT (Thursday Night Things) series. The show’s opening night will have the honor of the French Consul General in Atlanta as one of its VIP guests. “We are really encouraging theater students to please come out to see this show. It’s will be an incredible learning experience for them. We’re also inviting people from our neighboring cities in Memphis, Alabama and Kentucky to come see the show as well,” adds Ms. Snelling. Please join Parnassus Books for a reading from Can Themba’s short story collection, The Will to Die, read by Nashville poet and artist Stephanie Pruitt. This event will start at 6:30pm and is presented through a partnership with OZ Nashville. The book store is located at 3900 Hillsboro Pike, Nashville 37215.

a while. The production was scheduled to tour in America during the 90’s but didn’t because the producers didn’t feel the timing was right. Ms. Snelling says, “I’m intrigued to see how will Nashville audiences react to this show. The production has received wonderful reviews across the nation. Audiences who have seen it around the country have left the theater feeling a bit devastated but also uplifted at the same time. The performances from the actors leaves a feeling of elegance with the audience that lasts for a long time.” The Suit consists of an international cast, ranging from France, South Africa, with some having immigrated to America. Composer Franck Krawcyzk provides musical direction. South African actor/singer Nonhlanhla Kheswa is the lead voice of The Suit. The multitalented entertainer’s been performing the role of Matilda in show since it premiered in Paris in 2012. She has traveled the world with the show, from Shanghai, to London, Parks, New York and other exotic countries. Some of her many credits include working in the Broadway cast of Disney’s The Lion King. About the Writer/playwright The Suit author Canodoise Daniel “Can” Themba, was born in 1924 in Marabastad, Pretoria, South Africa. After graduating with a degree in English and acquiring a teaching diploma from the University of Fort Hare, he moved to Sophiatown, Johannesburg—a vibrant multi-racial community. Themba then worked as a reporter and an editor at Drum magazine, after winning a short story competition. His writing,

including The Suit, won several prizes, including the 1953 Drum award. His stories were celebrated for the way they depicted “… the harsh and depressing conditions of African life in the Johannesburg townships.” Themba left Johannesburg in the early 1960s to teach in Swaziland. While there, Themba’s work was banned and he was declared a statutory communist. He later passed away at the age of 43, reportedly due to alcohol abuse. His work was published posthumously in a collection entitled The Will to Die (1972) and later in The World of Can Themba (1985). Themba’s work was banned under the cruel restrictions of apartheid in his native South Africa, and he went into exile in Swaziland. He died an alcoholic before his most famous work was adapted for the stage by Mothobi Mutloatse and Barney Simon at Johannesburg’s Market Theatre in the newly liberated South Africa of the 1990s. The production of The Suit premiered in Paris at Théâtre des Bouffes du Nord in April, 2012, made its U.S. premiere at BAM in 2013. In his New York Times review of that presentation, Ben Brantley wrote that The Suit “reminds us of the power of fables and myths that transform grim events into raptly told, celebratory tales.” About OZ Nashville As the first contemporary arts institution in the region, the arrival of OZ transforms the cultural landscape of Nashville. Through a year-round program of performing and visual arts events, OZ supports the creative explorations of leading artists from around the world and inspire curious audiences of all ages.

KAM’S KOLUMN What the Word Be....

Why Black English Is the King’s (James) English. For, according to its author, Diane Proctor Reeder, the roots of Ebonics can readily be found in the King James Kam Williams Bible, the text employed Book Review by Kam Wil- by most slave masters to liams teach Africans English. “Blacks came to the U.S. chained to each other but from different tribes. Neither could speak the other’s language. If two black people, at that bitter hour of the world’s history, had been able to speak to each other, the institution of chattel slavery could never have lasted as long as it did. Subsequently, the slave was given, under the eye, and the gun, of his master… the Bible… and under these conditions the slave began the formation of… black English.” James Baldwin as excerpted in the Introduction (pages xiii-xiv) from his article “If Black English Isn’t a Language, Then Tell Me What Is?” When most people talk about the “King’s English,” they’re referring to a very proper, aristocratic way of speaking in terms of grammar and syntax. That style is far afield from the uniquely African-American phraseology also known as Ebonics. In fact, the pros and cons of teaching black English has been the subject of debate in recent years, with detractors arguing that it has no place either in the classroom or in polite society. Those naysayers might rethink that position after perusing What the Word Be:

onomy, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Who knew that the Bible is riddled with such supposed mistakes as unmarked past and present tenses, subject-verb disagreements, double subjects, bizarre uses of the verb “to be,” pronoun

What the Word Be: Why Black English Is the King’s (James) English by Diane Proctor Reeder Written Images Paperback, $19.95 200 pages

To prove her point, Ms. Reeder simply quotes from scripture, such as “Surely the people is grass,” which is found in Isaiah 40:7. The playwright/editor/businesswoman came up with the idea for her opus after scouring the Good Book front to back several times and finding over 1,500 verses written in black English. Here, she carefully cites hundreds of those examples from both the Old and New Testament, including Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Job, Deuter-

insertions and absence of the copula? Nevertheless, to this sister, there’s a method to the madness, and what academics might denigrate as nails on the blackboard ghetto parlance may now more accurately be appreciated as a God-ordained vestige of slavery worth preserving. Reeder’s persuasive conclusion? “We learned how to speak the way we do because our ancestors learned to read with the King James Bible as their primary text.” You be feelin’ her?

Common Questions About Restless Leg Syndrome

Restless legs syndrome (RLS) is a disorder of the part of the nervous system that affects the legs and causes an urge to move them. Because it usually interferes with sleep, it also is considered a sleep disorder. What Causes Restless Legs Syndrome? Restless legs syndrome’s cause is usually unknown. Leading experts suspect that in people with restless legs syndrome, also called RLS, the brain takes up or uses iron abnormally. Genetics also plays a key role. About half of those with restless legs syndrome have

family members affected, too. Many medical conditions are associated with restless legs syndrome, including iron deficiency, diabetes, end-stage kidney disease, Parkinson’s disease, and even pregnancy. These cases account for a minority of people with restless legs syndrome, however. Treating these conditions, if present, can improve restless legs syndrome symptoms. Who Gets Restless Legs Syndrome? No one knows the true number of people with restless legs syndrome. About 10% of the population is affected, and about 2% to

3% have moderate to severe symptoms that affect their quality of life. We do know that: • Women are affected slightly more often than men. • Most people with severe disease are middle-aged or older. • Those with affected family members usually get restless legs syndrome at a younger age, but it progresses more slowly. Symptoms of Restless Legs Syndrome People with restless legs syndrome have uncomfortable sensations in their legs (and sometimes arms or other parts of the body) and an irresistible urge to move their legs to relieve the sensations. The condition causes an uncomfortable, “itchy,” “pins and needles,” or “creepy crawly” feeling in the legs. The sensations are usually worse at rest, especially when lying or sitting. The severity of RLS symptoms ranges from mild to intolerable. Symptoms can come and go and severity can also vary. The symptoms are generally worse in the evening and at night and less severe in the morning. For some people, symptoms may cause severe nightly sleep disruption that can significantly impair a person’s quality of life. Who Gets Restless Legs Syndrome? Restless legs syndrome may affect up to 10% of the U.S. population. It affects both sexes but is more common in women and may begin at any age, even in young children. Most people who are affected severely are middle-aged or older. RLS is often unrecognized or misdiagnosed. This is especially true if the symptoms are intermittent or mild. Once correctly diagnosed, RLS can often be treated successfully. Causes of Restless Legs Syndrome In most cases, doctors do not know the cause of restless legs syndrome; however, they suspect that genes play a role. Nearly half of people with RLS also have a family member with the condition. Other factors associated with the development or worsening of restless legs syn-

drome include: • Chronic diseases. Certain chronic diseases and medical conditions, including iron deficiency, Parkinson’s disease, kidney failure, diabetes, and peripheral neuropathy often include symptoms of RLS. Treating these conditions often gives some relief from RLS symptoms. • Medications. Some types of medications, including antinausea drugs, antipsychotic drugs, some antidepressants, and cold and allergy medications containing sedating antihistamines may worsen symptoms. • Pregnancy. Some women experience RLS during pregnancy, especially in the last trimester. Symptoms usually go away within a month after delivery. Other factors, including alcohol use and sleep deprivation, may trigger symptoms or make them worse. Improving sleep or eliminating alcohol use in these cases may relieve symptoms. Diagnosis of Restless Legs Syndrome There is no medical test to diagnose restless legs syndrome; however, doctors may use blood tests and other exams to rule out other conditions. The diagnosis of restless legs syndrome is based on a patient’s symptoms and answers to questions concerning family history of similar symptoms, medication use, the presence of other symptoms or medical conditions, or problems with daytime sleepiness.

Nothing shall be impossible.

NFL DRAFT

Titans Draft Picks to Help Future By Ron Wynn

Despite their subpar record last season, the Titans seemed to put a lot of emphasis on future development in their 2014 draft picks. Their selections emphasized depth, as they took choices in their offensive and defensive lines, as well as in the secondary. They also drafted a quarterback, though the player they picked was somewhat of a surprise. They took LSU quarterback Zach Mettenberger, who despite a strong season was still available in the sixth round for reasons off the field rather than on it. Mettenberger passed for 3,082 yards and 22 touchdowns. But he also had an injury and two different off-field problems. One involved an arrest and the other one a failed drug test. The two things combined to make him available on the final day of the draft, and the Titans traded two picks (sixth and seventh) to move up and grab him. There remains some debate as to whether their first round pick Taylor Lewan will have immediate impact. Lewan was deemed the third best tackle in the draft. While he also has had off-field problems and faces some upcoming court dates, the Titans envision Lewan as a potential starter at the critical left tackle position. They currently have Michael Roos at that spot, and they signed free agent Michael Oher to a four-year deal to play right tackle. But now there’s speculation that Roos may eventually be moved to the right side and Lewan inserted at left tackle. That’s a situation to closely monitor once training camp gets underway. The draft choice who may end up playing sooner than anyone is running back Bishop Stankey. The second round

pick from Washington is both a good inside and outside runner and a solid receiver out of the backfield. The Titans considered him the top running back available on the board at that point in the draft. The Titans didn’t have a third round pick, but had two fourth round selections. One was defensive lineman DaQuan Jones, who at six feet four, three hundred twenty-two pounds, is versatile enough to play in either a 3-4 or 4-3 system. He had 11.5 tackles for losses during his senior year. Defensive back Marqueston Huff from Wyoming was their other fourthround choice. He’s six feet and 195 pounds and had 127 tackles and two interceptions in his senior year. He also ran a 4.49 40-yard dash at the combine, which definitely boosted his draft sta-

tus. Linebacker Avery Williamson was their fifth round selection. He was chosen as much for the Titans’ shift to a 3-4 system as he was because of two strong seasons where he was a defensive star for the University of Kentucky. Williamson had 237 tackles and four sacks during his last two seasons. He’s six feet, one inches and 246 pounds and told the press he grew up a big fan of the Titans. The team also agreed to terms with 14 undrafted free agents on Saturday as well. But there’s little doubt that the two biggest names were Lewan and Mettenberger, and with QB Jake Locker in the final year of his contract, Mettenberger in particular will be closely watched when the team begins preseason workouts shortly.

starts at 1 p.m. Should the Tigers once again make the playoffs, those would start Nov. 29, with times and sites to be announced later. The Tigers also got some good news regarding two members from last year’s playoff team. Offensive lineman Kadeem Edwards was selected in the fifth round of the NFL Draft by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Then another Tigers’ offensive lineman Demetrius Rhaney was picked in the seventh round by the St. Louis Rams. It was the first time that two Tigers were taken in the NFL Draft since 2000. Two other former Tigers, tight end A.C. Leonard and safety David Van Dyke inked free agent deals. Leonard signed with the Minnesota Vikings, while Van Dyke joined the Kansas City Chiefs.

ON THIS DAY On this day in 1989 former San Diego Padre and Atlanta Brave Cito Gaston took over as manager of the Toronto Blue Jays. Gaston would eventually become the first Black manager to win a World Series crown, taking the Blue Jays to consecutive victories in 1992 and 1993. He managed them twice, from 1989-1997 and again from 2008-2010. They also won four division titles and four American League championships under Gaston, who retired from baseball in 2010.

Donald Sterling

Anyone who thought the NBA had resolved its problem with Donald Sterling with a permanent ban from league activities and pressure to sell his team the Clippers were kidding themselves. The league found out that not only wasn’t Sterling going to simply accept Commissioner Adam Silver’s ruling and quietly slip away, but that there was another complication: his estranged wife Shelly Shelly Sterling announced to the world via an interview with ABC News that she would fight to retain her 50 percent ownership stake. “I don’t know why I should be punished for what his (Sterling’s) actions were,” she said. Meanwhile Donald Sterling went on the offensive as well, doing an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper where he made the case for forgiveness. “I made a terrible mistake,:” Sterling said. “I’m here to apologize. I’m a good owner who made a mistake. Am I entitled to one mistake, am I after 35 years?” The NBA has responded to Shelly Sterling by saying that the NBA Constitution allows a controlling owner’s interest to be terminated by a 3/4 vote and that all other team owners’ interests were automatically terminated as a result of that vote. But what they didn’t want is now definitely going to happen. Both Sterlings’ are going to court, and the results will no doubt result in a lengthy and ugly proceeding with lots of things that the league would rather not see become public entered into the record. This will no doubt include some things that have long been rumored or known by some, but not revealed to the general public. A sizable list of former Clippers’ players have long talked about Sterling’s racist comments behind the scenes, but for whatever reason the league never acted on it before. Former General Manager Elgin Baylor’s remarks about Sterling having a “plantation mentality” were reported during his unsuccessful age discrimination lawsuit, but they were subsequently either forgotten or overlooked as Sterling maintained control over the Clippers. Meanwhile the Clippers are locked in a tough battle with Oklahoma City to reach the Western Conference Finals, and coach Doc Rivers has to constantly answer questions about the Sterling fiasco while trying to keep his team focused. No one would have guessed that the league most often applauded for diversity and offering opportunities to all would find itself involved in this mess. But the Sterling situation reveals that there were flaws in the NBA vetting process many years ago, and that this problem was always lingering in the background. Unfortunately, it now seems that it will be hanging around for a while, and that there won’t be an easy resolution to this awkward (to put it mildly) situation.

SPORTS Commodores Take Another SEC Series COLLEGE BASEBALL

By Ron Wynn

The Vanderbilt Commodores made a little history of their own Sunday, blasting the Florida Gators 16-2 to take two of three from the team who entered the weekend ranked number four in the nation. It was the first time since the 2006-07 season that Vanderbilt had taken consecutive series wins over Florida. The game was essentially over after the first inning as Vanderbilt scored eight runs and then coasted to another victory. Florida’s starter Karsten Whitson walked the first three batters he faced. A two-run single from Zander Wiel and a three-run homer from Vince Conde knocked Whitson out of the inning. Dansby Swanson’s three-run homer provided the inning’s final runs. Tyler Ferguson earned his seventh victory in 10

starts, pitching only five innings. He gave up only two hits, walked three and struck out three. The Commodores’ relief corps continued a stretch of exceptional pitching. John Kilichowski and TJ Pecoraro each had an

inning of shutout relief, and the string extended to 23 1/3 innings before Florida’s Richie Martin’s home run in the eighth ended the string. Florida pitchers had control problems the entire day, walking 10 batters in addition to allowing 16 runs. Swanson had a career-high four runs batted in, while Jason Delay walked three times and scored three runs. Ro Coleman was on base four times, scored two runs and drove in two others. The Commodores took their third straight SEC series and are now 16-11 in the league. They are 38-14 overall and will continue moving back up into the Top 20 after falling a couple of weeks ago to the number 25 spot. Florida’s SEC mark is 19-8. They are 34-18 overall. The SEC regular season ends this week, and the Commodoes re-

turn home for four games. They had a nonconference foe in Southeast Missouri Tuesday. They conclude their SEC slate over the weekend with three games against South Carolina, beginning Thursday. Things don’t look so good for other area colleges. Tennessee lost a 1-0 game in 10 innings Saturday to Mississippi State, dropping to 11-15 in the SEC (29-19 overall). Only teams with winning records are eligible for the SEC Tournament and postseason play. MTSU kept its postseason hopes alive with a 9-6 victory over FIU on Saturday. Jared Allen’s four hits and three runs batted in gave MTSU a 14-12 mark in Conference USA play (26-24 overall). If they win the majority of their remaining games or sweep them, MTSU makes the Conference USA Tournament.

The Predators are hoping that his system and expertise can not only provide some offensive magic, but also take them further in the Stanley Cup playoff hunt than they did during the Trotz regime.

Do you have a favorite activity you like to do? Such as listen to music, play video games, read books, etc. You know the feeling you get when you hear about a new song that just came out or a new book that you just have to read? Well for me I heard about this new football team I had to go see play. I’m talking about the Nashville Venom. I was told by Scott Wallace and Jason Sales that going out to a Venom game is something I have to experience but it was totally different than any other sporting event I had attended in my past. So this past Saturday I went along with Scott and Jason to the game. Mind you at this game Scott is doing the stats and Jason and myself are supposed to be JaQuan Johnson helping him by telling him who made the catch or who ran the ball, who made the tackle, etc. There was just one problem, the Venom game is so exciting that it’s hard to work during the game. The atmosphere in the building was simply amazing even though The Municipal Auditorium wasn’t sold out but the energy in the building was amazing. You could really tell the fans in attendance really loved and cared about their team. The Venom and their opponents for the evening the Georgia Fire both came out strong and ready to play. On the Venom first possession they scored a touchdown their kicker missed the extra point which would end up being a huge part of this game. On Georgia’s first possession they scored a touchdown and then their kicker missed his extra point attempt. So I’m thinking in my head “well if it comes down to one of these teams having to rely on their kicker then someone is going to be in trouble.”

From Retribution to Reconciliation: The Importance of the New Testament Rev. Jason Curry, Phd. of Fisk Memorial Chapel

Christ. In the Old Testament, we may find a God of war, but in the New Testament, we definitely find a God of peace and love. It is because of God’s love for humanity (John 3:16), that God changed the nature of His relationship with us. God’s new covenant, New Testament or new relationship with humanity will always be expressed through love, not anger or war. When people want to talk about a God of war or retribution, dismissing them or handing them a copy of the New Testament will probably not be particularly helpful for beginning this important and necessary conversation. I’ve found that having and honest and meaningful conversation with people who do and do not love the Lord, feeding people who need food and providing clothing for people who need clothing are the most effective ways of telling or convincing people of God’s love, which is called grace. As we go about our lives, let us reflect this grace in all that we do. Amen.

Who’s Afraid of the Dark?

Regina M. Prude

I will give you treasures hidden in dark and secret places. Then you will know that I, the Lord God of Israel, have called you by name. —Isaiah 45:3 CEV I, for one, am not particular about being in the dark. I prefer bright sunshine and well-lit rooms. My favorite feature of the night is the brightness of the stars. These starry treasures point out that, even God wanted to punctuate the dark mantle of the night with a sprinkle of

glimmer. I like that. Life offers many contrasts. There are opposites and divergences. Out of darkness comes light. Out of agony comes joy. Someone has said that the richest blessings are often those that come to us in the night seasons of life, when we are surrounded by an unfamiliar haziness. In that hour, God sends a surprise—some unbelievable delight. There are countless stories of people who lost their homes during a disaster. I have heard many people say that, after the loss, when those residences were rebuilt, they had an even better home. The story is told of a man whose home and all of his belongings were washed away in a flood. On the darkest day, he stood to survey his losses as the waters subsided. Despondent, he saw an object shining in the mud. It looked like gold. And

it actually was gold. The floodwaters, which brought ruin to his door, also made him very wealthy. God reveals to us hidden treasures in dark, secret places. This promise, this divine truth, comes today to brighten the night of your trouble, whatever it looks like. Look a little closer. You will see evidence of God’s hand, moving. The darkness is not always the herald of shadowy things; sometimes it is about unanticipated blessings. Perhaps the night will usher in your next season of favor. © Regina M.

New Traveling Exhibition Tells a Story of Liberty and the American Experience

CHARLOTTE, NC — “Changing America: The Emancipation Proclamation, 1863, and the March on Washington, 1963” a traveling exhibition opening at the Promise Land Historic Site, located at 707 Promise Land Road in Charlotte on May 19, 2014, examines the relationship between two great people’s movements that resulted in the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863, and the March on Washington in 1963. Both grew out of decades of bold actions, resistance, organization and vision. One hundred years separate them, yet they are linked in a larger story of liberty and the American experience – one that has had a profound impact on generations that followed. “We are pleased to have been selected as a site for this exhibition,” said Serina Gilbert, the volunteer Executive Director for the Promise Land Community Club. “The dramatic story of how these two pivotal events came into being, a century apart, and how each helped put the nation on a course toward fulfilling its commitment to liberty and justice for all, is one that can inspire all Americans. Decades of work, struggle and sacrifice by many dedicated individuals and groups preceded both of these events. The exhibition tells the story of these struggles and their impact on American history and on the extension of equal rights to all Americans.” Emancipation from slavery was not the product of one act but of many. In the 19th century, enslaved and free Americans chipped away at slavery through daily acts of resistance, organized rebellions, and political pressure on politicians, generals, and the U.S. government. Finally, on September 22, 1862, Abraham Lincoln issued the preliminary Emancipation Proclamation, which ordered that as of January 1, 1863, all enslaved individuals in all areas still in rebellion against the United States “henceforward shall be free,” and under the protection of the military. The Emancipation Proclamation was limited in scope and revolutionary in impact. It committed the nation to ending slavery. The U.S. Congress responded with Constitutional amendments abolishing slavery, expanding citizenship rights, and giving black men the right to vote. These acts changed the political landscape, but the new freedoms were stripped away in the following years. However, on each Emancipation Day anniversary, Black Americans celebrated and in some cities organized parades and speeches reminding the black community and the nation of a commitment that remained unfulfilled. These celebrations and many other actions set the stage for the national push for freedom in the 20th century. On August 28, 1963, an estimated 250,000 Americans gathered at the Lincoln Memorial in the District of Columbia to mark the 100th anniversary of the Eman-

cipation Proclamation. People traveled from every state, united across race, class and ideological lines, and representing organizations, unions, churches or simply themselves. The prayers, electrifying speeches, and stirring music of the day served to remind Americans of the nation’s commitment to fulfill its founding principles of liberty and equality for all. In the months following the march, demonstrations and violence continued to pressure political leaders to act. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965 were turning points in the struggle for equality. The bills outlawed segregated public facilities and prohibited discrimination in employment and voting. The success of the March on Washington and

the achievements of the modern struggle for civil rights have provide a lasting model for social change. “Changing America: The Emancipation Proclamation, 1863 and the March on Washington, 1963 is presented by the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture and the National Museum of American History in collaboration with the American Library Association Public Programs Office. The tour of exhibition is made possible by the National Endowment for the Humanities: Exploring the Human Endeavor. The exhibition will travel to 50 venues across the nation, accompanied by public programming that will help audiences understand and discuss the relationship between these two great people’s movements. The Promise Land Community Club is sponsoring free programs and other public events (including the annual Reunion/Festival) in connection with the exhibition. Contact (615) 707-2130, gilbertsk@bellsouth. net or visit the Promise Land Community Club FaceBook page for more information. “Changing America” will be on display at the Promise Land Historic Site at the Nesbitt Cultural Enrichment Center until June 27, 2014. The Center will be opened for tours Wednesday through Saturday from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Other days and times are available by appointment. To schedule an appointment, please access the contact information above. The National Museum of African American History and Culture was established as a Smithsonian museum by an act of Congress in 2003. It is the only national museum devoted exclusively to the documentation of African American life, art, history and culture. Groundbreaking for the $500 million museum took place in February 2013 in a ceremony featuring remarks by President Barack Obama; former First Lady Laura Bush, a member of the museum’s advisory council; and Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) who submitted the legislation that created the museum. It is now under construction on Washington’s National Mall, on a five-acre site adjacent to the Washington Monument. It is scheduled to open in the winter 2015. For more information, visit www.nmaahc.si.edu .

Tennessee State Lottery Coming of Age By Clint Confehr

NASHVILLE, TN — Tennessee’s 10-year-old lottery is maturing this year with a “game-changer” for lottery-funded college scholarships, according to Gov. Bill Haslam. Another game-changer, anticipated by Tennessee Education Lottery President and CEO Rebecca Hargrove, is technology advancements since ticket sales started. Players might soon get results on smart phones rather than store clerks. App proposals will be reviewed this month. Tennessee Promise Scholarship legislation — designed to boost the number of people in the state’s workforce with a post secondary degree — was a prime candidate for a signing ceremony. The law’s adoption is criticized by Congressman Steve Cohen who fathered lottery-funded HOPE scholarships. The former state senator opposes cuts to four-year scholarships. However, workforce employability, for which high-tech training is needed, persuaded most lawmakers to support two-year, lottery-funded scholarships. Now, students, educators and state officials face implementation of a Tennessee Student Assistance Program-administered endowment to administer, grow and deliver promise scholarships in 2015. Meanwhile, the lottery corporation is developing ways to increase revenues and cut costs. It’s increased annual income annually. Lottery leaders move money quarterly to scholarship stewards. Hargrove’s latest report impressed House and Senate finance committee members. Since Jan. 20, 2004, Tennessee’s lottery had $11 billion in sales, paid $7 billion in prizes; raised $2.91 billion for education; and its 6.3 percent annual growth is double other states.’ Winners are paid nearly $2.1 million daily. And, 135 players bought tickets paying $1 million or more, including two Nashville residents who on Jan. 3 won $61 million, Tennessee’s largest prize. “We’ll be the first lottery in the country to have 10 straight years of growth from start-up,” Hargrove said. Lawmakers smiled at the statistics. Immediately after her report, Hargrove re-phrased Sally Field’s famous Oscar acceptance statement. “They like me. They really like me.” Hargrove has fun at work and plays other state lotteries. She won $50 on a Florida scratch-off ticket last winter. She calls winners who replay a losing number online for another drawing. Then, non-winning tickets registered on-line aren’t tossed on the floor of a store as litter. They’re kept for points to buy big screen TVs,

pots, pans, diamond earrings, metal detectors and other merchandise. The Buntin Group, Nashville, markets the lottery. As sales increased, Buntin cut its rate twice, but still was paid more. When multi-state lottery ads run, bigname personality costs are shared. “For the most part,” Tennesseans create Tennessee lottery ads that run here, Hargrove said. One ad used lottery “employees and talked about our diversity.” Of 199 working there last year, 53 percent were minorities with the vast majority being African American; up from 48 percent of an average of 159 employees in 2007-2011, when 46 percent were African American. Diversity makes the lottery corporation stronger, she says. About half its employees are women. She previews ads, avoids radio stations with a large

juvenile audience, and “won’t buy any station that has religious programming.” Some radio stations with religious programming want lottery ads, she said. “They’ll call and say, ‘Why won’t you advertise with us?’ “Religious programming,” she said, then quoting a station’s sales representative’s reply, “‘I don’t care. We want your dollars.’” Hargrove laughs with a grimace and shakes her head in frustration. So, she opposes mixing church teachings and staterun games, and she’s protective of children. Hargrove’s against giving children lottery tickets as Christmas presents. She’s also against targeted ads. “It’s irresponsible,” Hargrove said. She said she doesn’t know how much money is generated by lottery sales to African Americans. Tennessee’s lottery law allows, but doesn’t require, research to describe players. Unless you know what you’re going to do with that research, there’s no point in spending money on it,” Hargrove said. The goal is to raise money. As for funding more scholarships: “We raise it. They spend it. Anything that helps more students is good. I think there’s enough money. “There’s $460 million in the reserve fund.”

The Andrew J. Young Foundation Hosts the Pass on Blessings Awards 2014 along with Ambassador Andrew Young’s 82nd Birthday Celebration

ATLANTA, GA — The Andrew J. Young Foundation will celebrate the 82nd birthday of its founder, Ambassador Andrew Young with its 2nd Pass on Blessings Awards ceremony to be held on Sunday, May 18, 2014 at 6:00 pm at the Buckhead Theatre, 3110 Roswell Rd, Atlanta, GA 30305 in Atlanta, Georgia. The Pass on Blessings Award was created to affirm the giving spirit and actions of accomplished people who have used the bounty of their blessing to make a difference in the lives of others. This year’s ceremony will recognize the life and work of American legends that helped build Atlanta’s skyline and Atlanta’s image as a world-class metropolis, and changed America from a divided to a united nation. Their contributions and acts of courage in government, business, philanthropy, sports, entertainment, and human and civil rights were instrumental in breaking down racial barriers, and racial and economic injustice in America; altering the course of our nation; and creating a legacy that continues to make an impact on Atlanta and the world. The Pass on Blessings 2014 honorees are: • President Lyndon Baines Johnson and Lady Bird Johnson (posthumously) to Luci Baines Johnson (daughter, accepting) • Henry “Hank” Aaron and Billye Suber Aaron • John C. Portman, Jr. and Jan Portman • Herman J. Russell, Sr. and Sylvia E. Russell • Stevie Wonder

The Pass on Blessings Awards was coined by Carolyn McClain Young, vice chair of the Andrew J. Young Foundation and wife of Ambassador Young, in homage to a quote made famous by Oprah Winfrey which states, “Blessings are not ours to keep, they’re ours to give away.” Young decided during the planning of her husband’s 80th birthday celebration that it was an appropriate time for the Foundation to honor those who have passed the blessings they’ve received in life on to others. Oprah Winfrey received one of the first Pass on Blessings Awards in 2012. Ambassador Young stressed the need to salute the honorees for this year’s ceremony. “The progress and success of Atlanta is based on a half-century of visionary service. Many people today think it happened by accident,” states Ambassador Andrew Young. “With the Pass on Blessings Awards ceremony we are saying thank you to the courage and contributions of the investors in this vision, and in so doing, helping the millions of new Atlantans realize how all of this came together. It was through collaboration. We brought businesses, government, churches, universities and the panorama of cultures together. That is what has made Atlanta the city of the future.” As the nation recognizes the 50th Anniversary of hallmark legislation passed by President Lyndon B. Johnson, including the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Vot-

ing Rights Act, Medicare, Head Start, the Food Stamp program, and many others, the Foundation deemed it fitting to honor Lyndon and Lady Bird Johnson whose achievements during his administration transformed America. The bills Johnson signed into law struck down racial barriers, promoted equal rights and opened the doors to opportunity for black Americans. Their service to this country left a legacy that continues to shape American life today. “In the wake of the civil rights movement, Atlanta came of age as a model of cross-racial cooperation as a means to economic growth and opportunity for all, a model that subsequently set the standard for cities across the nation,” said Andrea Young, executive director of the Andrew J. Young Foundation. “For a decade now, the Foundation has fostered a mission to continue the vision, values and virtues that have moved this nation to a higher ground. Our Pass on Blessings 2014 honorees embody those same ideals and have demonstrated their commitment for a better society in their life’s work.” The ceremony will be emceed by legendary Atlanta newswoman Monica Pearson and actors Nicole Ari Parker and Boris Kodjoe. Superstar recording artist Stevie Wonder will be on hand to receive a Pass on Blessings Award for his life’s work as a global ambassador for peace and justice through music.

John and Jan Portman

Luci Baines Johnson

Event co-chairs are Alexander B. Cummings, Jr., Vicki R. Palmer, Nick C. Sellers and Carolyn McClain Young. The first Pass on Blessings Awards ceremony was held in 2012 in conjunction with Ambassador Young’s 80th birthday celebration and featured a host of celebrities and star-studded performances. Oprah Winfrey, Edwin Moses, Dallas Austin and Laura Turner Seydel were on hand to receive the first Pass on Blessings Awards and were serenaded by India Arie, Tyrese, Rev. T. Renee Crutcher, and many others. Proceeds from the event are used to support the ongoing work and operation of the Andrew J. Young Foundation.

Rev. Robinson Recalls Nashville Roots and Life Story By A.J. Dugger III

For several decades, Rev. Kenneth S. Robinson, M.D., has balanced his time between his work as a physician and pastor. “All I ever wanted to be was a doctor. But I grew up in a church, very active in faith; and my parents were a strong component in that mixture of faith, church, community and social service.” When he’s not healing the sick, he is healing people spiritually at St. Andrew A.M.E Church in Memphis, TN. And he just completed his tenure as Tennessee’s first African-American Commissioner of Health. Robinson was born in Nashville. “I was a very small premature infant born in 1954 at Hubbard Hospital of Meharry Medical College. I received excellent care for a premature baby in those days,” he said. “Much of my childhood and adolescence was spent being nursed back to health. I was nurtured back to health by excellent caretakers. One of them was Dr. E. Perry Crump, the first African-American board certified, NIHtrained allergist in the nation. There was excellent medical care in Meharry.” Spending so much time in the hospital with the doctors is what piqued his interest in learning about medicine. “It was inspirational to be around that group of AfricanAmerican physicians. I spent a great deal of my youth volunteering with people who had physical disabilities and mental retardation. I explored that interest in working with people in a very significant way before I went to college.” When Robinson was 14, he was the national president of the National Association of Retarded Citizens and traveling the country. Robinson graduated from Pearl High School in 1971 with its last all-black class. He then earned a bachelor of arts degree from Harvard University in 1975, a doctor of medicine degree from Harvard Medical School in 1979, and a master of divinity from Vanderbilt Divinity School in 1986.

God revealed that I should enter the preaching ministry. This was totally unexpected and undesired and nearly threw my career for a loop.” Robinson decided to accomplish both missions, saying he would work at the intersection between faith and medicine. He soon met someone else with similar interests. In 1979, he married Rev. Marilynn S. Robinson, MPH. She is a senior vice president at Saint Francis Hospital in Memphis and co-pastor at St. Andrew along with her husband. Robinson also served six years as chairman of the Tennessee Department of Health’s Black Health Care Task Force. He also balanced his time serving as a citizen advisor for minority health issues and was eventually appointed commissioner in 2003 by then-Tennessee Governor Phil Bredesen. Although he currently resides in Memphis, he is well-known in the Nashville community. “I’ve lived in Memphis since 1991,” he said. “After I did my medical residency in Boston, I came back to Nashville in 1982 and moved to Memphis in 1991.” Robinson and his wife are parents of twin daughters who are both physicians. “They are 33. Maisha is a double boardcertified neurologist. Nuriya is a specialist in global women’s health. She is an assistant professor at the University of Illionois at Chicago. Both of my daughters are Princeton alumnae.” Robinson founded a community housing development organization called The Works. The organization aids and addresses the rehabilitation and construction of an 80-unit apartment community and 30 single-family homes.
