|Rev. Jessie Jackson visits the areaThe Roanoke Tribune / 3 d. 18 h. 49 min. ago more|
Legendary pastor and civil rights leader heads get out the vote mission Rev. Jessie Jackson speaking at High Street Baptist Church. – Photos by S. Hale by S. Hale It was truly a red-letter day at High Street Baptist Church in northwest as a sizable crowd of civic-minded parishioners joined certain dignitaries to welcome Rev. Jessie Jackson to the area. The stop was one of several planned during Jackson’s “Healing and Rebuilding Tour” aimed at canvassing several central and western Virginia localities. Although the tour’s express mission is to get out the vote, Jackson took the opportunity to address various topics critical to the unsettling unrest of our nation and the world. At 75, Jackson is himself a legend as one of the forerunners on the front lines of the civil rights movement from the 60’s to the present. As one who fought for years along side legendary civil rights leader Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., Jackson was with King on that fateful day April 4, 1968 when he was assassinated. Among his countless accomplishments in the struggle for social justice, Jackson, in 1971, founded the Rainbow Push Coalition–an organization established to “improve the economic conditions of Black communities across the US.” During her introduction of the iconic minister, Brenda Hale, local NAACP president, briefly chronicled some of Jackson’s impressive list of accomplishments. Among those mentioned was the “pivotal role he played in 1983, to register more than 100,000 African American voters which led to the election of Harold Washington, Chicago’s first African American mayor. Hale also highlighted Jackson’s 2 bids for US President in the 80’s. The tour involved stops at various points in the state as Virginia State University, Petersburg, Lynchburg, George Mason University, Fairfax and several other colleges including University of Virginia in Charlottesville, the site of much racial unrest which Jackson spoke to. “Things have changed so much in America… and we all want healing,” he said. “The pain of Charlottesville still haunts us very much…there’s too much hatred, violence, ignorance and fear between us. We must learn to live together as brothers and sisters and not die apart as fools.” Throughout his talk, he urged the audience to repeat many of his most critical talking points to emphasize their significance. Visibly concerned, Jackson went on to express his views on people’s reluctance to receiving government subsidies. “Some people say they don’t want federal assistance in Virginia,” he stated. Virginia couldn’t make pay role for a month without federal assistance.” TOUR – Rev. Jessie Jackson speaks outside High Street Baptist Church prior to his “Healing and Rebuilding Tour” speech. Jackson pointed out that “60% of Virginia’s budget is federal and loosing Medicaid alone would equate to a loss of $50 million. He also pitched his support for Affordable Health Care. “The most vulnerable people in our society need healthcare based on need not based upon money,” he chided, yet with a soft voice. Rev. Jackson wasted no time in his assault on voter registration–an issue he considers of paramount importance. “We (as a country) should have automatic voter registration,” he said, which drew immediate and sustained applause. “You get a birth certificate when you’re born, a death certificate when you die and you should get voter registration when you turn 18,” he said. “It is a barrier in our democracy.” Following the event sponsored by the local branch NAACP, the longtime civil rights activist headed to Roanoke College for a town hall meeting. In these increasingly troubled times that call for a new level of vigilance, nothing could be more welcomed than an encouraging message from one of the most seasoned soldiers in the ongoing struggle for social justice.
|Hair specialist celebrates 20 years in the businessThe Roanoke Tribune / 3 d. 18 h. 53 min. ago more|
Cleveland of Diva’s House of Hair looks back on his life as one of the areas best stylists Yodie “Cleveland” Swain by S. Hale In the world of professional hair care there are beauticians, stylists, hairdressers etc. and then there is Yodie Swain. Cleveland, as he is commonly referred to, is owner/operator of Diva’s House of Hair on Williamson Rd. in northwest, Roanoke. Although presently celebrating 20 years in the business this past August, Cleveland has actually been in the industry for 23 years. The 44 year-old Roanoke native has been doing hair since he was a child and fondly remembers how he loved to brush his mother’s hair that “flowed down to the middle of her back.” He comes from a family of nine siblings amazingly, and says his mother, Naomi Swain, was both mother and father as his father didn’t play much of a role in his life. He also enjoyed doing his two sisters’ hair before they went to school each morning. The William Fleming High School graduate had aspirations of becoming a lawyer but after completing a year at Virginia Western Community College he figured it just wasn’t his thing. Shortly thereafter, Cleveland moved to Washington D.C. and enrolled in Potomac Hair Academy, Falls Church, VA. He returned home, finished his certification and received his license through Virginia Hair Academy. He first worker under the tutelage of some of the areas finest hair stylists under which he honed his skills. Cleveland quickly developed his own client base and set up shop at Lamplighter Mall where he has remained for 20 years. Presently he and shampoo assistant Jihad Barbee work an astounding number of clients into their rigorous daily schedule. “I have clients that have been with me since I started 23 years ago,” he said. “I just think that speaks volumes because my clients are more like family.” Something he holds in great esteem is the fact that he has within his clientele (members of one family) who amazingly span 4 generations that he serves with a special sense of pride. “It is an awesome thing to have the great-grandmother, grandmother, mother and child sitting in here… it’s beautiful,” he said. Cleveland says he’s not a barber and “does not do men’s hair as there are some great barbers in this town.” But once he does, the client usually will only want him to continue cutting their hair. It’s a known fact that most hairstylists are like therapists whereby they’ve heard it all from their clients who in many cases turn to them for advice and/or just need someone to talk with on a personal level-and Cleveland says he has “truly heard it all.” “I’d like to think all of my customers are celebrities,” he boasted, adding that one of his favorite clients however is Delegate Sam Rasoul who is also his landlord. “Sam has been extremely good to me,” Cleveland adds. “I have nothing but great respect for him and his family.” The delegate often enjoys engaging in impromptu Q&As with the ladies in his salon who have questions about various political issues. Never backing down from a challenge, the seasoned stylist has also worked on the clients of various funeral homes. He told a story of how a man once asked him to “service” his departed wife who to Cleveland’s surprise was never a client. However the man said his wife had attended a funeral of someone whose hair Cleveland had done. Interestingly enough, the wife had specified that upon her passing the husband would get Cleveland to do her hair. “This is not an uncommon thing,” he said. “Plenty of people always ask me to do their hair if something happens to them.” There’s no question that there is nothing ordinary about this stylish self-made entrepreneur who by all means, seems to live on top of life. Cleveland (right) with his “only best friend” April Welton at Henry Street Festival. – Photos by S. Hale I really enjoy being dressed up–what I call scissor sharp,” he said. “Especially when I go out of town.” The way he dresses, his shoes, his business, his beliefs and most of all his attitude are anything but mundane. Its rare to walk into his shop and not be greeted with a smile from either him or any of his patrons who patiently sit and relax through their transition to beauty. Cleveland has also engaged in philanthropic endeavors whereas one of his clients connected him with Goodwill Industries. It involved donating his time and services to a program designed for putting women back to work which he was more than happy to do. “I believe in giving back,” he said. “It brings me joy when these women come in as regular customers–nobody knows they come through Goodwill Industries and I do their hair just like a regular client for free…They get VIP service just like all of my clients,” he added. Cleveland also entered an agreement with Social Services to conduct classes for white parents who have adopted Black and bi-racial children and they “don’t know what to do with their hair.” Such an amazing opportunity can be a real source of inspiration to anyone with high-minded morals and a deep sense of balance as Cleveland embodies. His thorough approach to his craft is one of a natural flow that deeply connects him to his many clients who through his obsession to make them look good–are compelled to feel good. There are many professions that depend on personal interaction. Among them is hairstyling and Cleveland is no average hairstylist. For anyone who knows him (and many who don’t) can’t help but gravitate to his flamboyant and charismatic personality. He’s undoubtedly, to say the least, one of a kind.
|Life and Times on Henry Street, The ExhibitThe Roanoke Tribune / 3 d. 18 h. 56 min. ago more|
Charlene Graves and David Ramey by Charlene Graves As of Thursday, Sept. 21, at 11:00 am, an exhibit of 15 panels will be hung on Henry Street. The panels are 6’ by 8’ enlargements of some of David Ramey’s drawings used in his first book, “Life and Times on Henry Street,” printed in 2012. The panels cover the fence surrounding the construction site of the addition to the Claude Moore building, one of the only original buildings, remaining on the east side of Henry Street, the old Ebony Club. This new building will belong to the Virginia Western Community College as an extension to the already existing Culinary School. The exhibit is sponsored by the Roanoke Higher Education Center located in the old Norfolk and Western office building. In 2006, the Harrison Museum of African American History allowed me to create “Henry Street Live,” an exhibit centered around the businesses that existed from 1915 until the late 1980’s. Finding pictorial information to display was very difficult. I therefore began a long, tedious relationship with the Roanoke Public Library’s Virginia Room. Not long after the Henry Street Live show ended, I was asked to create an art project for the local chapter of Links Inc. The project involved five regional artists selected by various members of the Links organization. David Ramey represented the Roanoke area. After the Links event, David invited me to visit his studios–he had two, one in his shed and the other was at his kitchen table. He often would sit on one side of the table and his granddaughter, “Too Sweet” would be on the other side drawing. Much like he experienced while watching and sketching with his father. It was love at first viewing. David’s extraordinary photographic memory allowed him to create drawings and paintings of his experiences in Gainsboro, the oldest neighborhood in Roanoke. Most of his drawings show Gainsboro prior to urban removal. After visiting his home, I was hooked. Pictures of beauty parlors, pool halls, Nicks, Weeby’s and many, many more Henry Street establishments. Other subjects included religion, the railroad, and of course Gainsboro. He was deeply impacted by the murders of children. He has paintings depicting Christ taking the children to heaven. He was very distressed at the death of innocence. Most of his drawings began on 9×12 inch drawing pads. His medium of choice was colored pencil. He also used oil paints. I enjoyed accompanying him to lectures and festivals. David didn’t talk a lot, that was my job. People would often recognize themselves in his work. I remember a Henry Street Festival where a mother and daughter were visiting from out of town and they came to our table. The mother stopped and stared at a painting and she began to cry. Her daughter asked what was upsetting her and she pointed at a church in the painting and responded that she had been married at that church and her home was over the hill. Her daughter purchased the painting. I thank you David Ramey for introducing to some and reminding others of this important part of our past. To see more of David Ramey’s legacy visit Fine Art America.com, DavidARamey.com, Facebook, David A Ramey Artist. You may contact David Ramey Jr., at 540-206-3468 or 336-508-8654. His work in the City of Roanoke’s Art Collection, hanging in the Municipal Building and at Arby’s on Williamson Rd. This is David Ramey’s Henry Street.
|Lucy Addison High Class of ‘67 celebrates Grand Class ReunionThe Roanoke Tribune / 3 d. 19 h. ago more|
Lucy Addison High School Class of 1967 The Lucy Addison High School Class of 1967 celebrated its 50th class reunion at the Holiday Inn Valley View during the August 11-13, weekend. The itinerary for the weekend included a “Meet & Greet” on Friday, with DJs Catalina Ibarra-Williams and Eugene (Speedy) Stevens playing a variety of oldies, goodies and line-dance music as class members and guests danced the night away. On Saturday morning at 11:00 a.m. several classmates toured Addison Middle School to view the school renovation and Addisonian Wall. They were impressed with changes to our old Alma Mater. The 50th Grand Reunion Banquet, Program and Dance began at 6:00 p.m. with Johnny Taylor serving as Master of Ceremonies, Anita Aja Nu as songstress and Brenda Davis presenting a memorable power-point tribute to the deceased members. An attractive table display was also available for classmates to view throughout the night of at least 67 memorialized class members. Dr. Dolores Johns, former Distributive Education teacher, and reunion guest speaker, was dynamic as she spoke on the class theme. She posed the question “Why Worry?” We are blessed to have made it to this milestone in our lives! All classmates received a plaque with a picture of the old Lucy Addison High School on it, a polo shirt and a keep-sake flashlight pen. Classmate guests also received flashlight pens. Following after remarks from the co-chairs, Cynthia Clark posed the Class Toast for the auspicious occasion. Photographer, Irvin Childress, Jr. captured pictures of the classmates and their guest throughout the night and Barry L. Gray provided the power-point presentation of deceases class members and pictures of former class reunions. As classmates and guests wore Black and Gold to commemorate the 50th grand celebration, Clifford “Hootie Mac” Ramey took the class photograph. He also served as DJ for the evening and provided the music as all danced down memory lane. A Sunday morning brunch was held prior to the church service at the Holiday Inn with Elder Davis Williams, a classmate, as the speaker for the hour. His message reflected on our past, reiterated why we should be grateful for our present and acknowledge that we all have come this far by faith. At the end of his speech, classmates were given the opportunity to speak. Carolyn Edwards Justus-Flood took advantage of the opportunity to share how much she enjoyed the 50th Class Reunion. Sadly, she was unable to make it back to her residence due to a medical emergency and passed away in Roanoke! A Celebration of Life was held in Connecticut on Friday, Sept. 1, and her Memorial Service and burial were held in Roanoke on September 6. Many classmates were in attendance as Johnny Taylor read the Class Resolution. Our hearts are heavy, as we must include another name to our deceased list. The goal of 50 classmates was met at the 50th Class Reunion and all look forward to the next opportunity to reunite with members of the 1967 Class of Lucy Addison High School. The reunion committee was led by chairpersons, Johnny Taylor and Charles Manns. Other members included Francine Nash, Susan Vannoy, Mary Ferrell, Carolyn Ferrell, Rebecca Pullins, Brenda Davis, Cynthia Ford, JoAnn Hayden, Rena Ferguson, Deidre Day, Mary Jordan and Donna W. Lee. The committee met monthly for over a year to create their theme, “Reflecting on the Past and Grateful for Our Presence!” and to plan for the grand occasion–and the results reflected it!
|Spiritualizing our habits in a material world. . .The Roanoke Tribune / 3 d. 19 h. 2 min. ago more|
We are all creatures of habit–and mostly bad ones that prove detrimental to our physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing, subsequently to society in the aggregate. As infants and youth we form habits based upon observing those within our immediate environment–parents and other adult figureheads, siblings, playmates, etc. In today’s society ad to that TV, video, Facebook, etc. plus innumerable other fictitious and often infamous characters created to entertain us. Many over the age of 55 will readily compare the vast contrast in their upbringing with that of the youth of today. But most fail to take into account the vast contrast in the two societies. A half-century ago segregation and discrimination were legal throughout the nation and those on whom it was imposed were forced to ban together for social, academic and especially spiritual survival. Ironically, with the toppling of segregation laws from the books of state governments also came the advent of television through which the flames of overt and covert reinforcement of racism have been able to flourish, fanned by the winds of perceived freedoms. We constantly remind you of the Baha’i writings that state: “Consider the pettiness of men’s minds. They ask for that which injureth them and cast away the things that profiteth them.” Those who pursue liberty are warned: “Liberty must in the end lead to sedition whose flames none can quench…Liberty causeth man to overstep the bounds of propriety and to infringe on the dignity of his station. It debaseth him to the level of extreme depravity and wickedness. Know ye that the embodiment of liberty and its symbol is the animal. That which beseemeth man is submission unto such restraints as will protect him from his own ignorance and guard him against the harm of the mischief-maker.” Why is it so difficult to spiritualize our habits, barring some disastrous occurrence? It isn’t popular. Everyone is seeking acceptance–by parents, peers, a mate, etc.; and upon one’s death bed, by God. Material wealth and fame are perceived as keys to the door of “earthly heaven”–until obtained. Then comes the hell of maintaining and protecting that status. It is difficult to rearrange priorities that hold us captive to satisfying and appeasing our transitory physical (animal) nature that ends with the grave, instead of nurturing our spiritual (eternal) nature when our real purpose for being is not understood. Invariably, when the purpose of anything is unknown, that object will inevitably be misused and in all probability abused–our lives no exception! Through purpose comes motivation. Through motivation comes action and only through deliberate, persistent action can habitual spiritual transformation occur. Only then can we become beacons instead of judges, juries and executioners; models instead of critics, and thermostats controlling temperatures rather than just another thermometer registering the climate around it. To watch daily newscasts should be motivation enough to more persistently strive to spiritualize our habits. We owe it to our children, our descendants, to society and to our Creator Who created each of us in His Own Image as His instruments of love and subsequent PEACE!
