Budgets to increase at Austin schools

Eleven of 17 Austin schools to get small funding boosts By ANALISA TROFIMUK AustinTalks

Fewer Austin schools will see funding cuts next year compared to this year. Six of Austin’s 17 schools will see cuts ranging from -0.17 percent to -6.5 percent, while the remaining 11 schools will see increases ranging from 0.06 percent to 3.97 percent. George Leland Elementary School is facing the largest budget cut at -6.5 percent, leaving the school with $3,683,437 for the year, while John Hay Community Academy will receive a 3.97 percent increase, with $2,434,529. Last year, school budgets were not available this early. Chicago Teachers Union Communications Director Chris Geovanis said the earlier release makes it slightly easier for principals to staff the schools before the start of the school year. “Without additional funds to hire in more teachers, paraprofessionals, counselors, social workers, school nurses and other vital staff, we can expect that the hardships that students and CPS members experience because of the mayor’s constant shortchanging of educational needs will, in fact, persist,” Geovanis said. Jennie Biggs, communications director of the parent advocacy group Raise Your Hand, said the last five years of budgeting delays has been a nightmare. “There is a general lack of trust in those See SCHOOL BUDGETS on page 10

Austin bakery opens brick-and-mortar shop Schweet Foods, once online-only, opens at 5051 W. Chicago Ave.

By IGOR STUDENKOV Contributing Reporter

Austin residents and customers from as far away as Atlanta filled a tiny storefront space on May 12 to get some cheesecakes and other pastries at Schweet Foods, 5051 W. Chicago Ave., officially opened its first brickand-mortar location in Austin. Schweet was founded by Camille and Bri-

an Weddington. They started out online before taking their wares to markets and festivals throughout Chicago. They were the first tenants at the Boombox popup retail space, which launched last fall near the intersection of Chicago and Mayfield Avenues. The weekend opening was the culmination of ambitions the married couple, both lifelong West Siders, have harbored for quite some time. It all started with a cheesecake

recipe his wife learned from her grandmother. The couple took the recipe and “kind of made it our own,” Brian said. “We started out [cooking] for the holidays,” he said. “[Then], we got a brilliant idea that we should make some money off of it.” The business started out exclusively online, with the couple selling several differ-

In praise of mothers on their day

West Side women shared their wisdom on motherhood By MICHAEL ROMAIN Editor

The congregation at Greater St. John Bible Church in Austin took over the auditorium at Ella Flag Young Elementary School, 1434 N. Parkside Ave., on May 13 during a special Mother’s Day service. Over the weekend, Austin Weekly News spoke to two congregants about their own experiences with motherhood. Alberteen Brown, 70, is the mother of the church’s pastor, Rev. Ira Acre — an only child. Brown raised Acree in the Columbus Park area with her late husband. Acree showed the makings of a preacher early on, Brown said. “I didn’t know at the time that he was going to be a pastor, but I knew that God would use him in a special way,” Brown said on Sunday. “As far back as I can remember, when Ira was five or six years old, he would preach around the house,” she recalled. “He’d have his own special sermon he’d preach. He’s also a musician. He used to play for Rev. Johnnie L. Miller’s church, Mt. Vernon.” Although she only birthed one child, Brown said that she feels like a mother to many of the congregants in her son’s church. Her advice to younger mothers? “Continue to push your children into education,” she said. “I stressed that with my son and he has all kinds of degrees, including a doctoral and master’s degree. I think we need to encourage our kids to get as much education as they can, so whenever God is ready to open himself up to them, they’ll be ready.” Etta Turner, 62, was also in the audience during Sunday’s service. This Mother’s Day was the third she’s endured since her daughter, Vickie Turner, died in 2015 at age 33. Vickie, Etta said, was born with cerebral palsy. “I took care of her all of her life,” Etta said of her daughter. “I tried to keep myself happy so that she could be happy.” Etta said that she raised her daughter with the support of her church and community. But most of all, she said, it was “the Grace of God that kept me and taught me how to take care of her.” They were best friends, said Etta, who has two living children. Vickie’s personality, she said, was always upbeat and joyful. “Every memory” of her daughter, the mother said, “is a great memory. She loved me and I loved her and we enjoyed each other.” Said Acree of Etta’s relationship with her late daughter: “That was an exercise in unconditional love.” CONTACT: michael@austinweeklynews.com

Dealing with carjacking

very year, hundreds of troubled teenagers from all over the state of Illinois run afoul of Illinois’ laws and find themselves in the juvenile justice system. Many factors, ranging from unemployment, drugs, behavioral health issues, and family poverty cause youth to turn to crime. In Chicago, carjacking by poor, young black men has become one of the city’s major concerns for drivers. The city’s answer to stopping the carjacking is to pass a state law to increase penalties directed at juveniles. When troubled teens act out and break the rules, it should be viewed as a cry for help, not a cry to ruin their lives with felony charges and incarceration. Illinois should not destroy the lives of troubled youths before giving them a fair shot at success as an adult. The failure of parents and schools to meet the needs of their troubled youth results in today’s carjacking incidents. Now, of course, justice for victims of crimes should be pursued, and restorative justice methods could be effective in addressing this type of crime. Our law enforcement officials should quickly solve more of these cases. But we must take a broader view to respond to these and similar incidents. In 2004, the Illinois General Assembly set the state on a new course of action for meeting the needs of delinquent youth by creating a program called Redeploy Illinois for Juveniles. In the pilot program, 61 percent of youths successfully completing the program were not incarcerated within the following three years, compared to 34 percent of youths who did not successfully complete the program. Based on its success, the Redeploy Illinois program was expanded to serve nearly a quarter of all Illinois counties, but Cook County youths are not eligible for the program. The city of Chicago should be fighting

to bring Redeploy Illinois to Cook County to support juveniles, instead of fighting to pass a new law that could ruin children’s lives and make them even more dangerous adults. Research has found that nonviolent youths are less likely to become further involved in criminal behavior if they remain in their home communities and receive appropriate services to address underlying needs such as mental illness, substance use disorders, learning disabilities, unstable living arrangements and dysfunctional parenting.

Austin teens look to launch new business The budding entrepreneurs are part of nonprofit’s inaugural fellowship program

By IGOR STUDENKOV Contributing Reporter

By the fall, if all goes according to schedule, there will be a new business on the West Side — and it will be started by four Austin young people. Aaliyah Ward, Isaac Johnson and twin sisters Kayla and Cicara Reese are part of the Westside Health Authority’s inaugural Village Fellowship Program. The teens are currently undergoing a 12week training session designed to give them critical skills in “business development, leadership development, economic engagement and civic engagement,” according to Yemisi Dinkins, the Authority’s director of finance and economic development. Each teenager gets $250 a week in stipends and, upon completing the program, will receive an additional $2,000 in startup funding to help launch their own businesses as soon as they’re done collaborating on a single business that will incorporate all of their skills.

Quiwana Bell, the nonprofit’s chief operating officer, said that the application process for the fellowship was “highly, highly selective” and open to young people ages 16 to 24, preferably from Austin. The candidates had until March 23 to submit their applications. Judges considered the applicants’ ideas, their character and their talent, she said, adding that they also wanted candidates with vision and who could inspire their peers and their neighbors. Five applications were chosen, but one had to drop out due to her educational commitments, she said. “The goal is to grow four fellows so they’re able to be successful in business,” Dinkins said. “It was really [Bell’s] vision to bring the youth up, so they are able to be more than active citizens, so they are engaged and enhancing [the community].” All four fellows’ business ideas have some aspects that benefits other businesses or artists. Kayla Reese wants to build an app that would let beauty shops throughout Austin

reach clients across the city and beyond. She explained that she has seen many local beauty shops struggle, and she wanted to create something that would help them get more customers. In the long run, Reese said that she hopes to use the proceeds from her business to launch a scholarship that would help youth who are interested in careers in the beauty industry. Her twin sister wants to launch a full-service salon and spa in order to employ and educate people in the community about proper skin care. “Everybody knows black don’t crack, but I just want to provide more information on skincare, aesthetics and beauty,” Cicara Reese said. Ward described herself as an artist and an activist, and she came up with something that reflects both. “My dream is to open a community center that offers therapy for youth, and also offers them opportunities to express themselves,” she said.

Johnson said he wants to produce music. His idea was similar to Ward’s — take his talent and use it to give others opportunities to pursue theirs. “I’d like to open my own youth center that helps youth in under-developed communities build a platform where they can express themselves,” Johnson said. The fellows said that they haven’t ironed out the details of what form the collaborative business will take, but they do want to create an entity that allows all of them to utilize their respective passions and talents. Ward said that the fellowship experience has been “very eye-opening” and humbling — a sentiment shared by Johnson. “[It gave me] a sense of community a sense of how connected our community is,” he said. “It [has] shown me a new perspective. I’ve seen people who want to see change and make it happen. With that experience, I hope I can go further.” CONTACT: igorst3@hotmail.com

SCHWEET FOODS Brick-and-mortar from page 1 ent kinds of cheesecakes and cupcakes. As the business took off, they started selling at various markets and events. Since spring of 2017, they have been taking part in the West Loop’s Randolph Street Market — which is where Westside Health Authority officials discovered them. Since 2017, the Authority has been operating Special Service Area 72, also known as Austin Village 72. The SSA includes a portion of Chicago Avenue, between Central and Kilpatrick Avenues, and a section of Cicero Avenue, between Rice and Ohio Streets. As with other SSAs, all property owners pay extra on their property taxes to help fund improvements. Authority officials wanted Scheweet Foods to be part of the service area by having a brick-and-mortar presence in the corridor. Brian said that, at first, he and his wife struggled with the idea, since it would be a major departure from the way they’ve done business. But after thinking and praying on it, he said, they decided that it would be a great way to support a community they’ve called home. They first set up shop inside of the Austin Boombox, a pop-up retail space that was result of the collaboration between the Authority and the Austin African American Business Networking Association (AAABNA), the City of Chicago and Latent Design — a West Town-based architecture firm. Their more permanent home is a small storefront area inside the Authority’s ad-

ministrative building. Brian said that the nonprofit prepared the space, installing plumbing. He added that AAABNA was instrumental in getting the word out about the business. Quiwana Bell, the Authority’s chief operating officer, said that Saturday’s event was just the beginning. “Right now, we’re here in the community to say that there may be cheaper cheesecakes in Oak Park, but we want to support our community,” she said. “We hope to have more ribbon-cuttings, because businesses are attracted to the Chicago corridor and the SSA. We want Austin Weekly News readers to come here and buy, see for yourselves — don’t just read about it.” So far, Schweet Foods’ storefront is only open on Fridays and Saturdays, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Customers can either purchase instore or order online at www.schweetfoods. com) at least a day ahead of time. Customers can also order the cakes delivered to their homes via GrubHub, but only on Fridays and Saturdays. CONTACT: igorst3@hotmail.com

I

Fear of the blue and white

love to drive. That’s one of the reasons I have a part-time job doing it. I like discovering areas of the city I have never been to. I also enjoy maneuvering my way throughout the suburbs. Nothing is more challenging than to go into one of those suburban developments where it seems like you’re trapped in a maze with the same street name that changes from Main Court to Main Circle to Main Drive to Main Street. Whatever city planner allowed that had a mean streak. When driving, my biggest fear, like most other people is the blue and white. But it’s not the blue and white you think. You see, the blue and white that appears in my rearview mirror doesn’t cause me as much consternation as the one ahead of me. It’s those drivers with the blue and white TNP + CHI affixed to their rear window who scare the bejesus out of me! What is TNP + CHI? It stands for Transportation Network Provider + Chicago. It’s the decal Uber/Lyft drivers are supposed to have in their car in order to access either Midway or O’Hare Airport. But the real meaning of that sign, as far as I’m concerned, is that it warns me of an amateur driver whose qualifications for driving anybody around should be questioned by the passenger in the rear seat! The most dangerous thing about someone with that sign is that, more often than not, they are heavily dependent on the GPS to get them from point A to point B. A real driver uses GPS as a supplement to their knowledge of the city’s streets and not their lifeline! As a driver carrying paying passengers, one should know the basic layout of the city. With the exception of certain angular streets like Grand, Cly-

bourn, Elston and Archer, those drivers should be able to make their way around with ease. Unfortunately, that is rarely the case. I was driving south on Cicero near Midway airport when all of a sudden all the cars came to a screeching halt. The reason? The TNP + CHI rideshare driver was trying to get to the Midway Airport exit ramp from the far left lane. One would have thought that, after crossing Archer Avenue, the driver would have the common sense to get into the far right lane. But no. The GPS apparently hadn’t told him, so he didn’t! One time I was driving on North Ashland and the driver pulled from a parking spot into the second lane cutting me off. I blew my horn at him and swerved into the right lane. That nut case proceeded to cut back in front of me into the right lane and then cut to the left lane all while the female passenger sat in the rear seat. That driver is a future road rage assailant for sure. Last but not least are the scared-tomove, scared-to-change-lanes, scared-todrive-like-they’re-trying-to-get-somewhere drivers. Hopefully with gas now exceeding $3 a gallon, the number of those drivers will lessen. They do nothing but add to the traffic congestion!

A conversation with Lonnie Bunch

The founding director of the National Museum of African American History and Culture talks past, present, future By MICHAEL ROMAIN Editor

Lonnie Bunch, the founding director of the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington D.C., was in suburban River Forest last week to speak at Dominican University’s commencement. During a roughly 30-minute conversation, he also waded into contemporary waters, addressing everything from #MeToo and Bill Cosby’s place in the museum to President Trump and Kanye West’s controversial “slavery was a choice” statement. The following responses have been edited for brevity and clarity.

On the origins of the museum The National Museum of African American History and Culture was basically a startup. I started with a staff of two — me and one other person — in 2005. While it was clearly a small group, one of the great strengths of my career has been that I know scholars and museum people everywhere, so I was able to draw on that to help people figure out what this museum should be. My most important job was to convince people that this would happen, because the idea for this museum had been floating around since 1913, but nobody was really ready for it. In some ways, it was like a political campaign. I had to figure out the vision, how to build support and relationships.

On the bipartisan coalition that built the museum On the Hill, I was able to get support from people like Rep. Danny K. Davis and Bobby Rush and some new kid named Obama. It helped to have that, but even

more importantly, there were North Side Republicans like John Porter who helped me cross the political divide. George W. Bush was also important to this. He had not only signed the law authorizing the museum in 2003, but there were people who said, ‘Don’t build it on the mall.’ But Bush said, no, this museum needs to be on the mall. And because he was a Republican, he could convince people. Laura Bush even agreed to serve on my board.

On opening the museum We broke ground in 2012 and it took four years to build. We opened in September 2016. Obama had asked me to make sure that he got to open the museum, so that was one of my commitments to the president. I remember going into construction meetings and saying, ‘I was hanging out with the president and he’d like to have you guys move a little quicker,’ so that kind of helped. That was an amazing day. To have the Chief Justice of the United States there and my person hero, Congressman John Lewis, was unbelievably humbling. You’re sitting up there, looking out at this sea of people, thousands of them, and every celebrity wanted to be there — Oprah, Samuel L. Jackson, Colin Powell. You find yourself thinking, ‘Oh, my God, what am I doing? How did I do this?’ And you realize all of these people are there because the staff worked so hard to open that museum.

On the Chicago area’s representation in the museum Chicago’s history is a history that has shaped the nation’s political, racial and economic history, so it was clear that Chicago would have a presence in the new museum. We have a pew from Quinn Chapel [the oldest black church, and longest-held property by African Americans, in Chicago] that gives people a sense of the religious history of Chicago. We’ve also collected issues of the Chicago Defender to give people a sense of how that newspaper changed the tint and tone of everything in the North. There’s also Emmett Till’s Casket. There are a lot of things.

BACK HOME: Lonnie Bunch speaks during Dominican University’s commencement ceremony last Saturday. The Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture started out as two people in 2005 -- Bunch and a staff person.

On whether or not President Trump has had an effect on the museum’s operations The Trump administration doesn’t have any operational effect on the museum. Our budgets have been strong. President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence have visited the museum. As people begin to look at civil rights and race in America, the museum has become a pilgrimage site.

On the impact of #MeToo on the museum’s curation We have material in the museum from the Black Lives Matter movement and #MeToo, and have done programs around many of these issues, including a program on Confederate monuments. The museum recognizes that it has to be as much about today and tomorrow as it is about yesterday, so I also want to wrestle with these questions. There are some things we do now and some things we’ll wait and grapple with down the road, but we want to make sure that we collect material, oral histories and ideas around these stories. Our job is to collect today for tomorrow, as well as collect yesterday for today.

On Bill Cosby’s current place in the museum

5118 W. Chicago, Ave. Chicago, IL 60651 - (773) 261-9595

There was an article in the New York Times that quotes some of the women who accused Cosby. They said that we should have him in the museum and response is pretty simple. I’m a historian of Black America. So much of Black America has been erased. I don’t erase history. So, Cosby is in the museum, but we also made it clear that, at this point, his

reputation and legacy has been damaged. We’ll also change a label to say that he’s been convicted. But I will never erase history — that has really hurt the black community. Anybody who expects us to erase history is just downright wrong.

On Kanye West’s statement that ‘400 years of slavery was a choice’ The most important thing a museum does is educate. What you hope is that people get an understanding of this history and slavery is part of it — without a doubt. When we did our initial surveys in the beginning, slavery was the number one thing people wanted to know about and the number one thing people didn’t want to know about. We hope that everyone who comes into the museum understands that slavery isn’t just a black story — it’s a story that shaped the country. It’s a story about pain and brutally, but also about strength and resilience.

On the national museum’s commitment to local museums We knew we couldn’t build this museum without standing on the shoulders of many other black museums, so part of this was a chance to be the kind of national museum with resources that may not have always been available to other institutions. Small institutions … would reap the benefit of being involved with something called the Association of African American Museums, which includes large and small museums. They help get them support and money. We always encourage institutions to reach out to that group. CONTACT: michael@austinweeklynews.com

Support4U is a mental health-related prevention and support resource for students, by which they can text licensed mental health clinicians any time of the day for assistance or guidance. While students can initiate a text conversation on any issue, some of the matters that students might wish to address could include anxiety, depression, substance use, suicidal ideation, eating disorders, bullying, abuse, or any other mental health-related topic. The resource is anonymous, so studentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; concerns about their identity are not a barrier to reaching out. The clinicianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goal during the text conversation is to assess the situation, provide skills counseling when appropriate and steer the student to available resources in the school and community.

Community Funded By The Following Organizations

Support4U Initiative was identified through the work of the Mental Health Awareness and Suicide Prevention Task Force. MHASP is a community-based task force made up of the Community Mental Health Boards of Oak Park and River Forest, NAMI, Riveredge Hospital, Thrive, Local School Representation; D200, D90, Oak Park Police, Village of Oak Park, Congregation of Churches, and community behavioral health professionals
