A Tampa Ms. Gambrell attended the public schools of Hillsborough County and graduated from Chamberlain High School.

Dr. Martin : Luther King, Jr. was assassinated by a sniper in Memphis, Tennessee . According to Lerone Bennett, Jr., author of "Before The Mayflower," that "assassination precipitated national crisis and rioting in more than 100 cities. Forty people were killed in major rebellions in Washington, Chicago and other cities. Twenty 'thousand federal troops and 34, 000 national guardsmen were mobilized to quell disturbances. Memorial marches and rallies were held throughout the country. Many public school systems closed and the opening of the /baseball season was post poned." President Lyndon B. Johnson declared Sunday, April 6, a national day of and ordered all U. S. flags on government buildings in all U.S. territories and possessions to fly at halfmast. The next day, continues Bennett, "some three hundred Tuskegee students held twelve of the school trustees captive for twelve hours and demanded campus reforms." Significantly, Black students in universities across the nation, Boston University one of them, occupied administration buildings and began to demand that African-American History courses and more Black students be added. Bennett wrote: "Columbia University operations virtually ended for the year by Black and white students who seized five buildings orr campus. On April 23-24," continues Bennett, "Students seize the administration building at Ohio State, on April 26, 1968. On May 11th, said Ben-nett, 'nine car a vans of the Poor Peo.ple's Campaign arrived in Washington for the first phrase of the Poor People's March." On June 8, one Jame s Earl Ray, alleged assassin of Dr. Luther King, Jr. was captured at an airport in London. On the 19th .of the month, writes Bennett, "Fifty thousand demonstrators participated in the Solidarity Day March of Poor People's Campaign; Marchers walked from the Washington Monument to LinG.oln Monument, where they were addressed by VicePresident Humphrey, presidential candidate Eugene McCarthy, Mrs. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Ralph Abernathy.

No one could belleve or predict the horror that befell yet, another school campus. No one, except God. . And yet, b een: too many shootings on college and secondary school campuses in this the greatand the first free public school society. Part III (Continued From Friday) regnant women continue to fall victim of throughout the country. In fact, homicide has become the leading cause of death of pregnant women. Recently, a new law was passed to charge the death of a fetal as a separate crime. However the law is a federal law and most homicides are handled by state courts One man convicted of killing his former girlfriend of years was Reginald Falice. Falice met Ruth Croston while both were col lege students. After they graduated, he opened his own computer business and she obtained a job as an accoun tant. During an interview from his prison cell, Falice admit ted that when Croston became pregnant with their first child, he took complete control of her life He insisted that she stop working, he decided what she would eat, and where she could or could not go. But, as the relationship continued, he demanded more and more control. He even determined what of med icine the infant could take. When Croston realized she was pregnant with a second child, she told him she was ending their 10-year relation ship. Croston took her 3-yearold son, left Atlanta, and returned to her mother's home in North Carolina. Falice told her she could l ea ve but the child could not He went to her mother's house to talk to her. Falice carried two items with him: a car seat and a handgun. When Croston refuse d to give him the child, he followed her to work and shot her 8 times. She was 4-months pregnant when she was killed in April1998 These stories and others were featured on a segment of "Fatal Fathers: A Bill K urtis Special Report" and broadcasts on the Court TV Channel. But the numbers continue to rise and women continue to die at the hands of their partners Cases prosecuted under the federal law includerl that of military Sgt. Timothy Ward and Joseph Minerd. Ward is alleged to have beaten his wife, Bianca, to death. Minerd was convicted of planting an explosion that killed his ex-girlfriend, Mitts and her 3-year-old daughter, Kayla, and the unborn child. Experts say some .of the same symptoms of such homi cides are similar to those of domestic violence. They warn women who are pregnant to pay attention to those signs and get out of the relationship as quickly as they can. They also say that when women do decide to leave, that is' the most dangerous time. ' Certainly, there has been too much blood shed for us not to have invested in avail-able technology and retrofitting to prevent mass loss of lives of our children. Indeed, the litany of names of public schools and colleges that have experienced casualties as a result of shootings, grows longer and grislier every year. Surely, there are valuable lessons to be.learned from each mishap. Yet, 'we keep W.iting for answers that come slowly, if at all.

African i Americans are still shackled by the invisible bounds of slave mentality. Every day African Americans prove that the Willie Lynch theory on controlling and keeping Black people in slavery was correct. In essence Lynch's theory was to divide Black people and they would keep themselves in slavery. That is exactly what is happening to African Americans today. The only difference is today we divide ourselves. We divide ourselves by education, earthy accumula tions, skin color, occupations, family background and a host of other traits that we as people have learned to hold so dear. It is so difficult for African Americans to be united on any issues regardless of how important they are to us as a race. Minister. Louis Farrak-han, of the Nation of Islam said it best when he said, "We all know that our race is where it is because of slavery and racial injustices. But there is no reason why we have to stay where we are." According to the minister's theory, our race has too many problems for all of them to be solved by one individual or one organization. But we can solve our problems and improve our station in life by uniting and working together to solve our problems Mr. Farrakhan asked the question, "How long are we going to beg the children of slave owners to do for us what we can do for ourselves?" It is a theory that I completely agree with. How long? I hope not much longer. We talk about jobs, afford able housing, crime, teenage pregnancy, high school dropouts, a decreasing num-her of college attendees, and economic development, but that's all we do is talk about it and look solely to the government to provide these things. There is enough money among Black people to make many of these things happen. Yes, we need to constantly harass governments to do their share for us, but like wise; we must do our share. One of tqe problems that faces African Americans today is we have become a race content to let somebody else do for us. That is not good. Brothers and sisters, more than 400 years have gone by. Not a single Black that lived in is alive today. We know about slavery. Let _us accept that it was real. But let's stop using that as an excuse. We can unite as a race and make our lives better.

LOCAL Florida House Committee Says No To Proposed Gun Bill Once again, a bill that would have allowed employees to have guns in their vehicles while at work has been voted down. The bill, HB1417, was defeated with a 10-4 vote last Wednesday after. being approved in two recent Senate committees. Many in Tallahassee felt timing was an issue in the House putting the bill down Last Monday on the campus of Virginia Tech a lone gunman killed 32 students and wounded several others before killing himself.

The bill had been prepared to reach the Senate floor, but now cannot be taken up by the House, which means i't won't pass before the end of the 60-day legislative session on May 4th. One legislator who adamantly opposed the bill was Senator Arthenia Joyner. She had gone on record as saying she had previously opposed the bill signed by Governor Jeb Bush called the "Stand Your Ground Law."

HOLTON Sentinel StaffWriter For 24 years, Alan Crotzer proclaimed his innocence and fought for his freedom Now, he is speaking out for those like himself who were arrested, convicted, and incarcerated for crimes they did not commit. Last week, Crotzer appeared before the Senate Judicial Committee in support of a bill that would provide $50,000 in compensation for every year of incar ceration. The bill was passed by the Judicial Committee and is moving forward to become law. However, it must pass several other committees before it is presented to the full house. "This bill would benefit anyone wrongfully convicted who were absolutely innocent. But time is ticking for me for it to pass before the session is over," Crotzer said. Mike Onlick of Carlton and Fields, P .A., who filed a claims bill on his behalf, is representing Crotzer pro bono Crotzer said the bill is important for those wrongly convicted because they are not eligible for programs that other released inmates are eligible. "I was released without even an apology No one was looking at the problem. I don't know how many others are out there like me, but we need compensation We need help for re-entry into society. It's about doing 'what's right." A native of St. Petersburg, CrotzE-r was arrested, convicted, and sentenced for raping a woman and her daughter. He served years in prison before DNA evidence cleared him of the crime. He credits, among _the .. m*, i ..... ALAN CROTZER skills of Jeff Walsh, of Capital Investigations, for not giving up and locating the DNA evidence. "That evidence was supposed to have been destroyed. But I thank God for it being found. God stepped in. I also thank my wife for being so understanding of what I'm going through. Crotzer was released from f! the Florida Prison System in January 2006. He said he 0 was released too late to pur-> sue the bill at that time. en If the bill is passed, it will provide for each ::! year of impz:i sonment for those falsely convicted. It r;would also provide education opportunities and. a state-r issued apology . The bill was sponsored in ::! the Senate by Arthenia Jqyner and by c Representative Priscilla Taylor in the House (j) "I've met some great peo-:t pie up here (Tallahassee) and they are trying to under-m stand or trying to imagine being in my shoe!>."

LOCAL Educators To Recognize 655 Mother Concerned About Son's Safety BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel Staff Writer Members of a Hillsborough County education organ1za tion will recognize more than 600 African American graduating seniors. The ceremony will take place on Wednesday, April th; 7 p.m., -at Chamberlain I:ligh School, 9401 N. Boulevard (corner of N. Boulevard and Busch Blvd.). Dr. Sam .Horton, President and founder of the Hillsborough Alliance of Black School Educators (HABSE) said, "This is our opportunity to recognize those students who have towed the line for 12 years. This is our chance to embrace our children and show them that we care." The 655 graduating seniors being recognized have main. tained a grade point average of 3.0 or higher this year. The students were also invited to submit an essay for considera tion to receive book scholar ships. More than 170 students participated and 40 of those DR. SAM HORTON President, Founder of HABSE have been chosen to receive the book scholarships. Additionally, seven students will receive free' tuition to attend Hillsborough Community College. Dr. Horton said, "We decided to provide book scholarships rather than selecting one or two students to receive scholarships. 'W_e feel the book scholarships will benefit more students." Since its inception more than ten years ago, HABSE has recognized' the achievements of African American students. The organization is composed of educators on all levels, parents, and als who are interested in the education and success of youth. Dr . Horton said the recognition ceremony has grown with each passing year. The ceremony was first held at Jefferson High School, and later relocated to Middleton High School. However, it is being held at Chamberlain High School this year because that school has a seating capacity of nearly 1,000 peo, ple. "Last year, we had more than 890 people attend. Theis open to the public but seating is limited. The scholarship winners will be announced during the cere mony." Anyone wishing to obtain additional information should contact Ms. Rhonda Harris, President of HABSE, at (813) 272-4000. \. BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel Staff Writer Ms. Cathy McCrae feels she's really hit the wall. She recently lost her mother, and is disabled. She also had been entrusted with the care of children belonging t o other family members. "My mother and I were very close, and I depended on her a lot. Now that she'.s gone, .I haven't been able to deal with handling a lot of things on my own. I'm still grieving her passing and battling health problems at the same time. Sometimes, it gets to be overwhelming." If that wasn't bad enough, Ms. McCrae's son, Omar McCrae, is serving time in Calhoun State Prison in Georgia. Ms. Crae said she's not disputing the fact that her son should be incarcerated, but she is very concerned about his welfare. "He started writing me let ters about the prison environment he's in, and it scares me. "He vividly describes inci dents that have occurred right in front of him, and having to deal with threats every day." In one letter Omar sent to his mother, he stated he real ly didn't expect to live if he isn't transferred to another prison. THO MAS F. YOHO DDS, PA.; OMARMCCRAE ... has been in Georgia prison for a month and fears for his life. "He said his life is in jeopardy every day. He feels he doesn't' belong in a prison with so many violent and dan gerous inmates. He's not' serv ing time for a violent act, and wants to be moved closer to home where his family can visit him." Ms. McCrae has been try ing to contact Calvin Brown, director of the Inmate Administrative Facilities Division in Georgia. "rve requested my son be moved to De-Ray James Prison, because it's closer to Florida, and I'll at least be in a better position of visiting him. Where he is now is to far away." Ms. McCrae said she's been repeatedly frustrated in her efforts to get her son transferred. Fl;na-l l:v ___ \ H : a -.. ,rn; H--o :e ____ :,,. ; ; ; , '' ,: .,.._.: .. I . . ; .i . ".

Domestic violence crosses all boundaries race, gender, economic status. But it's one of the misfortunes that rarely spoken of in public. That's one of the reasons Delia Coleman has been adamant about hold. ing workshops -"to help hurting women," she said in a recent interview. Ms. Coleman held the first workshop last fall. There was enough interest to plan anoth er, which was held March 31, 2007. This time, more victims than before attended that confirmed the need for more forums, Ms. Coleman, a minister who is also the chaplain for the Tampa Police Dept., said. Guests at the recent forum included Linda Hess of The Spring, Margaret Lang of Victim's Assistance Program, and Nikkie Daniels of Family Justice. A portion of the program is set aside as an open forum that allows those who attend to share their experiences. "Sometimes you hear Chaplain Delia Coleman, left, with her pastor, Pastor Johnny some horror stories of what women have to go through. "In the Black family it's just an unspoken statement that you don't talk about the domestic violence in your home. And, in our community it has been understood that beating on women is just something that men do and it's okay. But at these forums, we share with the victims that it's not okay and there is help." At this most recent forum, one participant talked about how a mentally and physically abusive husband caused her unborn child to be handicapped. Another told of how her entertainer boyfriend was so possessive. He told her if she ever left he'd kill her and forbid members of the band from assisting her financially. With the help of family, she eventually fled to Florida. According to statistics posted by the local daily from the Tampa Police Dept., 1,214 African American females reported incidents of domestic violence in 2006 and 328 African American males .. Ms. Coleman, who is profes_ sionally employed-by a medical billing ,company, encourages those who want to learn more or want to participate, to call (813) 986-2801.

'Pacman' dones Buys Full-Page Ad .To Address Team Woods Plays Oakmont For First Time Suspended Tennessee Titans cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones took steps recently to ensure that his teammates and fans know that he is remorseful about his recent missteps and dedicated to making some posi tive changes. The athlete took out a full page ad in the sports section of Friday's edition of The Tennessean -Nashville's daily newspaper -and told his family, coaches, teammates and Titans fans he must reorganize his priori ties. "'n the past few weeks, I have learned a lifetime of lessons," the letter states, addressing his season-long suspension by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell. Jones writes of his intention to meet, and hopefully exceed the expectations peo ple have of him. "The first step in meeting these goals is for me to stop making the poor choices that have "put me in this position," the letter reads. Jones has had about 10 police run-ins since the Titans selected him as the sixth pick overall in the 2005 draft. He has had five arrests, including the incident that broke the camel's back: a Feb. 19 fight at a Las ADAM 'PACM.AN' JONES Vegas strip club that led to a triple shooting. Police want to charge Jones for inciting the fight. Under new rules instituted this month by the NFL to crack down on off-field infractions, Jones was sus pended for the entire season However, Goodell left open the chance f()r Jones' return after the Titans' lOth game if he meets a list of stringent requirements. That included staying out of "adverse" involvement with police and putting together a plan of community service the NFL must approve. Jones wrote in his letter that he also plans to reenroll at West Virginia University and finish his degree. OAKMONT, PA -Tiger Woods got his first look at Oakmont Country Club on Sunday as he began prepara tions for the U.S. Open. Woods played the back nine early Sunday morning with members and swing coach Hank Haney, then stopped for lunch and played the front nine in the afternoon. The U.S. Open, to be played June 13-16, returns to Oakmont for the first time since 1994. It is one of the few classic championship courses in the United States that Woods had not played. He first qualified for the U.S. Open in 1995 as an amateur. Woods said he thought Oakmont as a members' course was far tougher than Winged Foot, wh ere last year he missed the cut for the first time in a major as a pro. On the par-S eighth, he played the back tee at 288 yards, and hit 3-wood to the middle of the Green . "I refuse to hit driver," Woods said, smiling. "It's against my religion."

ENTERTAINMENT -4 c m en c Chris Rock Asks Court To Determine Patemity STATESBORO, GA--. Chris Rock has asked a Georgia court to start paternity proceedings to deter-. mine if he's the father of a 13-year-old boy whose mother tried to file a paternity lawsuit against the actor and comedian last month. Rock "desires to contribute to the support, maintenance, and education" of the boy if there's evidence to prove he's the father: according to papers that Rock's attorney-filed Monday in Bulloch County Superior Court. Kali Bowyer, who lives in Bulloch County, sought' last month to file a paternity lawsuit against Rock seeking child support and medical coverage for her son, Jordan. She withdrew the law&,uit after court officials told her it was outside the southeast Georgia county's jurisdiction because Rock is a New Jersey resident. CHRISROCK However, Rock, who has two young children with his wife of 10 years, Malaak, is requesting that the matter be taken up in the Georgia court. "She is looking forward to establishing that Mr. Rock is the father of their son and bringing the case to a swift conclusion," Brett Kimmel, Bowyer's attorney.in New York, said Wednesday._ Akon's Raunchy Dance 14-YearOid Irks Dad The father of the 14-yearold girl pulled on stage to engage in simulated sex with R&B singer Akon is calling the act "atrocious," bu t refuses to _lay total blame on the superstar crooner. Video footage of Thursday's incident in Port of Spain, Trinidad made national headlines after it hit YouTube the next day. Pastor Dave Alleyne of the Flaming Word Ministry of Chaguanas, father of the 14year-old, says his daughter Deena was taken advantage of during the concert at Zen nightclub. Deena_ had won round one of a dance competitio'n which carried prizes, including a "free trip" to Africa, announced Akon from the stage. Footage of the "dance" showed Akon simulating sex with Deena and tossing her around the stage into different sexual positions. At the end of the "competition," con: testants learned that the of a free trip to Africa turned out to be a con. Akon joked that he was Africa. "She likes dan'cing and won a competition," said of her daughter's partie-AKON ipation in the "contest," adding that she became helplessly caught up in a sit uation where she had no con trol. The members of Alleyne's church, however, want the pastor to come down harder on Akon's actions. Parishioners said that Akon sang about sexual promiscuity and should be denounced publicly and banned from public performances by the church. Alleyne, however, chose instead to denounce the pop culture climate that supports teen fascination with such pop stars. Subscribe lbday! .. lts Officially A Wrap For Bobby & Whitney BOBBY BROWN And WHITNEY H O USTO N The marriage of Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston becomes an official done deal on Tuesday, April 24, per a California judge. The divorce, listed as "uncontested," calls for neither party to receive spousal support. Also, the property division is listed as "no com munity property." As previously reported, Houston will have sole phys ical and legal custody of their 14-year-old daughter Bobbi Kristina, while Brown has been granted a "reasonable right of visitation." At a court date earlier this month, Houston told Orange County Judge Franz Miller that Brown was unreliable when it came to his daughter. "If he says he's going to come, sometimes he does. Usually he doesn't," she told the court. According to TMZ.com, Houston shed tears during the ten-minute April 4 hear ing, during which the judge set April 24 as the official Dday. James Brovvn Ovves AIKEN SC --The trust handling James Brown's estate owes more than$70,000 for his elaborate funeral and care of his body for nearly three months before it was laid to rest in March, according to the funeral director who handled the soul singer's arrange-ments. "I'm just waiting on them to get some of this mess straightened out," said Charles Reid, manager of the C.A. Reid Funeral Home in Augusta, Ga., which handled Brown's funeral. "I real ly haven't pushed the issue, even though I'd like to have mymoney." Some of the funeral costs have already been paid and trustees have mailed a check to Reid this week covering the outstanding balance, Brown's longtime adviser and trustee Buddy Dallas said Wednesday. "It was the children that ran up a funeral bill of over $150,000, not the trustees," JAMFS BROWN -'-Dallas said. "We've don e our very best to do what we cou l d tO accommodate the creditors.
