Adora Obi Nweze is trav eling around the state meet ing with various media agencies, school boards, su perintendents of schools, and with the Executive Boards of the Branches in the cities where she stops. She was ac companied by Hillsborough County Branch President Carolyn H. Collins. Ms. Nweze said among priorities of the Florida Con ference are educating people about their civil rights, healthcare and educating the masses (holding school dis trictS responsible for keeping kids off the streets and in schools). President Barack Obama has a little window of space to accomplish many goals, she said1 "he's got to run as fast as he can and we've got to get behind him to open doors." Even though the Black community may feel it has earned the right to have President Obama to our selves, she says that' s not practical thinking. Civil Rights organizations are grapp ling with the challenge of 2 white appointments to the Supreme Court. Atty. Warren H. Dawson, board member, wanted to know what that does polit ically, knowing that a President rarely gets the opportunity to make ap pointments to the Supreme Court. Ms. Nweze said it al lows him to look at a broader picture "We have to weigh what's coming up He'll have the opportunity to appoint the Solicitor General and fill federal positions, which will come closer to home," she stated. James Tokley wanted to know what the 21st Century NAACP will look like. Ms. Nweze advised that the mis sion of the NAACP will not change, but the goal is to continue with a stronger army, "bringing in more en ergy to fight the causes." Ms. Kay Andrews asked what is being done to in crease those numbers. Ms. Nweze said that's the reason she's traveling the state to encourage membership in the organization and to en courage media like the Sen tinel to help make the Hillsborough County Branch stronger Ms. Andrews continues to push for voca ti o nal and technical schools in th e inn e r c i ty. Wilbert Malphus, General Contractor with En core, agrees. He added that there is no way that an ap prentice can get the neces sary training needed on a construction site in 6 weeks Grant writers are giving peo ple false hopes by making them think they're prepared for jobs. Rubin Padgett advised that there's a need to educate people on the need for the NAACP. "There's a genera tion of young people who cannot visualize the need and purpose of the organization," he said The U. S. Dept. of Educa tion has filed a complaint against the Hillsborough County School District on behalf of the Florida Confer ence of Branches for its history of pushing students out of school for minor in fractions, leading to a reduc tion in the percentage of students graduating. Hills borough County was one of 2 school districts investigated. The other was Palm Beach. The complaints have been investigated by the Southern Poverty Law Center. The in vestigation continues in Hillsborough County. "We are upset about what is hap p e nin g m Hillsborough County," Ms. Nweze sa id.

Feature c Mother Of Popular Professor Found Murdered In Her Home c s: ...... (X) 1\) 0 ...... 0 Mrs. Sarah F. Davis is shown with Hernando County Sheriff Richard B. Nugent during an award presentation last year. Mrs. Davis was murdered and her body discovered early Saturday. BY IRIS B. HOLTON Sentinel City Editor For many years, Mrs. Sarah Davis lived in a his: torically African American neighborhood in South Brooksville Saturday morn ing, shortly before 2 a.m., members of the Hernando County Sheriffs Office discov ered her body. Deputies with the Her nando County Sheriffs Office responded to the home early Saturday in reference to a wellness check. Upon gaining entry, Mrs. Davis was found dead. Police are not releasing details about her death. But, her death is being investigat ing as a homicide. Sgt. Donna Black, spokesperson for the Her nando County Sheriffs Office, said "There is a very active in vestigation and wedon't want to release any additional in formation. "It hits us hard, too, be cause she was a very important member of our family. (Mrs. Davis, who was a re tired teacher was a retiree of the Hernando County Sheriffs Office). She was just a phe nomenal person and she taught several of our deputies. Some of them went to the scene after her body was dis covered." Mrs. Davis became em ployed with the Sheriffs Office in October 1995, as the clerk of the School Street Substa tion, and retired in October 2009, after 14 years of service. Mrs. Davis had lived in her home with her husband, the late Mack Davis, Jr., nearly so years. She raised both her children, Dr. Mack -Davis, III, a professor at USF, and Mrs. Angela Collins, of Atlanta, in Jhe home and was well known and respected throughout the community. At the age of So, Mrs. Davis was very healthy and not taking any type of medica tion. Married for 58 years, her husband died on May 13, 2009. Thursday, the anniver sary of her husband's death, was the last time her son spoke with her. "I called my mom on Friday morning. When she didn't an swer, there was concern, not panic, as she was not' an early riser," Dr. Davis said of his He further stated that he w as goihg 6\i{bf town ; But his to call their mother. Dr. Davis said after Mrs. Collins couldn't reach their mother, she contacted a cousin who lived close by to check on her. The police were called after the cousin could not get a response. A native of Hernando County, Mrs. Davis gradu ated from Dr. R. Moton School and continued her ed ucation at Florida A & M Uni versity, where she earned a degree in Education. She returned home and launched her teaching career at Moton School, as a third grade teacher. When the school closed in 1968, Mrs. Davis transferred to Brooksville Elementary School. She ended a 30-year career in 1984. She later be came the school's Librarian Although she left the class room, Mrs. Davis' days were far from idle. She was active in the NAACP, Moton High School Alumni Committee, the Black Educators Caucus, and the Financial Secretary of her church, Bethelehem Pro gressive Baptist Church. Last year, Mrs. Davis de cided to retire again and left the Hernando County Sheriffs Office and relinguished her duties as the Financial Secre tary of the church. She was honored for her "Outstanding Work" by Sheriff Richard B. Nugent at her retirement and presented a plaque. Dr. Davis said his mother spent most of her time work ing in her yard and taking piano lessons. Her yard was her pride and joy, he said. Mrs. Davis left lasting memories with many of the people she met during her life time. The impressions she left with her family were simple. "Her very quiet but very powerful presence, is what her son will remember about his mother. "She did not have to make a lot of noise or make a scene to get things done. People simply responded pos itively to her and did what she told them to do "She taught my sister and I to take responsibility for our actions, the love of family, and to always treat people as you would want to be treated," he said. Mrs. Davis is survived by Dr. Davis and his wife, Mrs. Janet Spencer Davis, her daughter, Mrs. Collins and her husband, Calvin, of At lanta. She also has four grand children, Jason, Mallory, Jennifer, and Joseph. Dr. and Mrs. Davis are well known in the Tampa community. The family are members of Allen Temple A. M. E. Church, where Dr. Davis is a member of the Trustee Board the Technol ogy Committee and Editor of the church newsletter.

Opinions expressed on editorial pages of this newspaper by Columnists or Guest Writers do not necessarily reflect the editorial stance of The Florida Sentinel Bulletin or the Publisher. Serenitv At The Expense Ollntegritv c According to a local reporter, Hillsborough County 0: government, without the leadership of Pat Bean is LL -"humming right along!" What the reporter means is County Government-two months into censured admin< istrator Pat Bean's three months suspension -is doing better than ever, thanks to acting administrator Mike c Merrill. Indeed, things have been going so peacefully that en rumors are rampant Pat Bean might become a memory w :::l in the annals of Hillsborough County government his-1-tory. Having been given this news, one might imagine the public and the press would be lulled to sleep, finding at W last, a solution to its problems. But we don't think so. The people of Hillsborough County do not want effi-e ciency at the price of justice. W Let us explain. As this paper goes to print, neither the :::a: en Florida Department of Law Enforcement nor any other :J agency has found or presented concrete evidence to prove that either Administrator Pat Bean or County AtD. torney Renee Lee has done anything, that would separate Z them from their jobs. Indeed, we were under the impresti:i sion that even in Hillsborough County, folks were still ..J presumed innocent until proven guilty! S No harm, nor disrespect to Mike Merrill. We're sure D he's doing a terrific job. However, unless Hillsborough ..!I County wants one day to become PAT BEAN COUNTY, w z somebody in County Government needs to understand i= this fact. z w en < c a: 0 ..J LL. A Peek Into Prison Repeat the words. Let them echo inside your head. "A life stripped of life .. No programs or education. No visitors, no phone calls, or human touch. No books, magazines, 1V, or radio. No talking. No standing at the cell door and looking out. Three to-minute showers a week. Meals pushed through a flap in the door. En_. forced idleness in a concrete box, for fifteen years." That is not prison. That is hell! Such intolerable treatment would have been easy to ascribe to a gulag in a Siberian region of the former Soviet Union, or a prison cell in the French Archipelago known as Devil's Island. But to realize that the site of such hell was the Santa Rosa Correctional Institution, run by the Department of Corrections, and to be told that the inmate of such cruelty entered the system as a 14-year-old Black boy was too horrendous for us to bear, no matter what he had done. And what had he done? At age 14, Ian Manuel shot a woman in the face, point blank, after a botched attempt to steal $20 from her. The woman survived and later appealed to the system that sentenced Manuel for leniency and humanity. Recently, someone in the Florida Department of Corrections realized Ian Manuel was still human and deserved to be freed, after 15 years of solitary. In one year, "1:1' it may happen. But Manuel is only one person, out of h\indreds if not thousands who continue to languish in f. of Florida prisons. A s far as anyone knows, Civil Rights legends Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Malcolm X only met and talked once. The meeting and conversation occurred when they both as sembled to witness Pres. Lyndon B. Johnson sign the Civil Rights Bill. It is my understanding that Dr. King and Malcolm X met and talked briefly after the signing of the bill. It is also my understanding that no one else was privi leged to have heard the con versation between these two icons. While both men were religious and civil rights leaders they had completely different philosophies on how to achieve civil rights. Martin Luther King, Jr. believed that non-violent, peaceful demonstrations were the way, and Malcolm X believed that civil rights The Bahamas: should be achieved by any means necessary. King be lieved in turning the other cheek while X believed in fighting fire with fire and violence should be repelled with violence. While these two very intel ligent Black men were com plete opposites, they both believed deeply in civil rights, especially for Black people. What these two men said to each other on that day would be a conversation for all the ages, if it was known. I can believe that they both agreed that it was a historic day and acknow ledged it. I can believe that they agreed that that the day was a culmination of both of their efforts. I can hear them paying great respect for each other and their respective work. I believe they paid tribute to Pres. Johnson A Sale-Haven For Black Florida Seminoles And Slaves I f you take a cruise or trip to the Bahamas and meet someone who looks exactly like your cousin, that person may actually be. Our African American gene pool is spread throughout the Caribbean, especially in the Bahamas. How could that be? Many of our relatives fled to the Bahamas as an escape from slavery in America, during -the late 1700's and early 18oo's. Others were taken there by their slave owners who were English loyalists. During the American Rev olutionary War (1775 1783), more thim 10,000 slaves reportedly fought on the side of the British in ex change for an offer of their freedom and were called Black loyalists. Because Florida was under British control at the time, thousands of escaped slaves and free Blacks who had lived side by side with the Seminole Indians and in termarried (Black Seminoles) formed an alliance and sided with the British during the Revolutionary War. These Black Seminoles also fought on the side of the British during the War of 1812. Other English loyalists (To ries) fled from Georgia and the Carolinas to the along with their slaves after the signing of the Declaration of Independep.ce to escape persecution and death from the revolutionaries. The Bahamas was under English rule and offered safe haven. Before the influx of the English loyalists, there were fewer than 1,000 slaves in the Bahamas and many free Blacks. By 1783, the mi gration of the loyalists had increased the number of slaves to more than s,ooo. Most of the Florida Black Seminoles settled on the largest island in the Ba hamas, Andros Island (for merly St. Andrews) in towns known today as Red Bays, for his bold contributi o n to the Civil Rights Moveme nt. I ca n ima g in e that both m e n ag r ee d that America had come a lon g way, but still had a long way to go and much work remained to be done. King gave thanks to God Almighty while X thanked Allah, The Merciful. They talked briefly, I think, about the need to stop racial profiling, police brutality, and politics. The two proba bly inquired about each other's health and families as their conversation neared a close. One thing I feel pretty sure of is that they did not talk about working to gether. Their philosophies were too different for that to happen. I can imagine that the two did offer to help the other if there was ever a time they could give some assistance. I can believe that they shook hands and cautioned each other to be safe. They both knew that each of them led somewhat dangerous lives and for that were targeted. To me it seems strange that two of the most influential Black men in America work ing for the same cause did not have more interactions. Mastic Point and Nicolls town, on the northwestern side of the island. Having sought sanctuary from American enslavement, the Florida Black Seminoles formed settlements and con tinued to practice their tradi tions and customs. They built pole houses, log dwellings, dugout canoes and set up farming with seeds they brought with them from America Because Black Seminole Bahamians left a rich legacy and oral history, historians were able to document evi dence of Black Florida Semi noles who were also called "Wild Indians" on Andros Is land. '' included the common surname of Bowlegs (including the grandson of Billy Bowlegs), funeral wake cus toms similar to those of the Seminoles on the Texas Mexico border and stories told by descendants of the Black Seminoles. Today, descendants of Florida Black Seminoles still live on Andros Island, espe cially in Red Bays. So, if you happen to see Black Bahami ans with Indian features on Andros Island, chances are their ancestors are Florida Black Seminoles And if you have Black Seminole blood, the Bahamian Seminoles might just be your cousins. Harambee! It reminds us of the sign painted over the gates of Dante's Hell, which read, "ABAN DON HOPE, ALL YOU ENTER HERE!"

CREWS Sentinel StaffWriter Mario Mayo wasn't unlike many young Black males you see on the streets. His life was full of drama and whatever was going on he wanted to be. a part of it. "At the age of 13, I was in the streets hanging out and involved in all kinds of things." In 2007 after spending time around other enter tainers and hanging out at studios all over the city Mayo decided it was time for him to begin his own ca reer. Mayo (known as Young Swagg) has performed for PLIES, Trick Daddy, and other big artists and was featured recently at a big event in Orlando. He said entertainment saved his life. "If I wasn't doing this, there' s no telling where I'd be or what I'd be doing. What I do know is this got me off the streets along with a lot of praying. I came from a broken home and the streets practically raised me. "I was headed for destruc tion when I decided enough was enough. A lot of bad things were happening around me and I knew I didn't want that." Today, Young Swagg said he's all about helping the kids. 'I'm coaching a youth foot ball team at the Sulphur Springs Park, and I'd like to create a mentoring group. "Growing up, I carried a lot of anger with me for a long time. Things weren't that great at home, and when I went into the streets, I was o laming everyone for that. Split homes are sending a lot of our kids into the streets and into hopelessness." Young Swagg said he wants to work with DACCO to help people on drugs and turn the young people around and get them inter ested in something more productive and positive than selling drugs. "I've been there and done that, so I think they will listen to me. That's no life out there, and it will get you either dead or in prison." Young Swagg said he has a recording studio down town and he'd like to bring the kids around so they can see something different. "''m not saying they should all become rappers. I just want them to see there are other things they can do They need guidance and leadership, because things out there keep getting worse every day." Young Swagg said he's happy now. "This is the happiest I've been in my entire life. Growing up when I saw my family going to prison and when I started going myself and seeing my chil dren crying, that got to me. I didn't want to leave them and have them turn to the streets for parenting like I did. Young Swagg said he's the proud father of three children who are making ex cellent grades in school and he knows they will have a bright and promising future. "I have a movie coming out called 'Sunshine' and it will be released at the end of the summer. "I grew up in Sulphur Springs and I know there's a lot of work to do in my old neighborhood. I plan to put in the time to help as many as I can realize there is an other way." Association Leader Applauds EHorts 01 Police ..... CD 1\) 0 ..... 0 BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel StaffWriter East of 40th Street, between Osborne Avenue and Chelsea Street, is a community that has been under fire by crime and drugs for decades. Sam Mobley, who resides in the community and also owns rental property there, had tried everything he could think of to create a commu nity residents could feel safe in. "This time last year, it didn't look good, said Mobley. "It looked like the criminals had taken over and the resi dents were either prisoners or just as bad as the criminals. It just wasn't a safe place." Mobley, President of the Eastern Heights Neighbor hood Association and Crime Watch, said now through the tireless efforts of District III police the area is returning to SP what it was befor e the drugs came. "We owe the Tampa Police Department more than a lot of thanks We owe them our lives and the secure feeling we feel now," said Mobley. "There are still some areas that need more attention ; but overall, things are returning to normal around here.

University Of South Florida Marshall Center Ballroom 4202 E. Fowler Ave. Tampa33620 $30 Single ** $55.00 Couple Anornev Files Amended Complaint In Alleged Hazing Incident BY LEON B. CREWS Sentinel StaffWriter Three members of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority were less than a day away from commencement ceremonies at the University of.Tampa. Two of them were seniors and the third completing her j unior year. On Aprils, 2009, the three 21-year-olds were sus pended, accused of brutally hazing pledgees. University officials alleged that pledgees were yelled at, made to run, do pushups, squat, eat garlic wrapped in Big Red Gum, and drink hot sauce, hold a match between their finger while reciting a pledge, had rocks and grass thrown at them and were paddled. Since their suspensions last year, the students were not allowed on school grounds or dormitories. Attorney Joseph Bryant, who is representing the students pro-bono, said he feels the students are being treated differently because they are Mrican American students. "On Monday, I filed a sec ond amended complaint, be cause the judge asked for more information. The first one we filed was put in fed eral court until I filed a mo tion to have it remanded .. THEME: back to state court two weeks ago. "I am requesting a hearing to stop the university from imposing the harsh sanc tions, and I'm surprised other organizations haven't gotten involved in this. "l think the university is trying to personally crucify me and the students, but I've dealt with them before when I crushed them on a plagia rism case in 2009." Bryant said these are nice young ladies, an d we can't allow their careers to be crushed b y this. "That would be wrong. The evidence we've gathered indi cates this is the first time the university has sanctioned in dividuals and not the group. Some of the alleged incidents were voluntary. This is affecting their stu dent loans, scholarships, and they can't apply to attend graduate school while this is going on. These are scholar ship students who have been barred from campus and not allowed to attended classes or take exams. They have to stand by and watch their grades plummet to zeros be.:. cause they aren't able to at tend class." The students, whose names were not released, are from Atlanta, New York and the U S. Virgin Islands. "CHURCH GROWTH WITH WOMEN OF FAITW Pastor Vanessa Banks 3 P.M. Speaker Renown Singer and Author

"The Voice of Our Community Speaktngfor Itself' 813) 248-1921 Temporarv Move To Newark Entices Shaq SHAQUILLE OiNEAL Many NBA players may agree that the New Jersey Nets forthcoming move to Brooklyn would entice them to give greater consideration to signing with the team as a free agent. Shaquille O'Neal, for one, doesn't even need to wait for Brooklyn. Shaq is intrigued by the possibility of joining New Jersey in part because of the team's move to the Prudential Center beginning next season. For his part, Shaq told reporters after Cleveland's playoff exiting loss that he hopes the Nets stay in the Newark arena forever. It's doubtful that the new Nets ownership feels the same way. Ower Still Evaluating cavscoach MIKE BROWN Despite the fact that Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert said the team is continuing to "evaluate" coach Mike Brown, two league sources have said that Brown will be fired. The sources said that Gilbert has made his decision, although he may not have informed Brown yet. In his Friday afternoon press conference, Gilbert would not say that Brown would be back next season. Brown, who won the NBA's Coach of the Year Award last year, compiled a 272-138 record in five seasons leading the Cavaliers. He also led the team to the playoffs in each of those seasons, including a Finals appearance in 2007. Cleveland's inability to return to the championship round in the last two years, especially after nabbing the league's best record in both seasons, drew criticism of Brown's ability to manage his team and winning rota tions. source savs Elin '100 Percent Filing' For Divorce Elin Nordegren and Tiger are only communicating through their attorneys now. Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren's marriage is all but over, and there is "zero chance of reconciliation" between the two, according to a source close Nordegren. Furthermore, the source said that N ordegren is so certain that she won't be taking up residence with Woods in their Florida home that she's "rushing renovations on her house in Sweden she plans on living there full time." As for the couple's two chil dren, Nordegren intends to live in Sweden with Charlie and The source went on to say that the couple are only communicating through their attorneys. These conversations about custody are taking place without the divorce filing itself being done, said the source, who emphasized that Nordegren is "100 percent filing," she just hasn't yet. The delay, at first, was a concession to Woods. Serena, Venus To Be Ranked No. 1 And No. 2 ST.

The WTA Tour says Venus Williams is assured of moving up to No. 2 on Monday, one spot behind younger sister Serena.

Horne, who died Sunday at 92, was one of the first Black performe"rs hired to sing with Charlie Barnet's white orchestra in the early 1940s, playing the Copacabana nightclub in New York City. When she signed with MGM, she was one of the rare Black actors to have a contraCt with a major Hollywood studio. In 1943, MGM lent Horne to 20th Century Fox to play the lead role in the all-Black movie musical Weather. Her rendition of the tide song became a major hit. For years, Horne enter,... tained white audiences with her impre.ssive musical if _range. LENA HORNE "I was unique in that I was a kind of Black that white people could accept," she once told an interviewer. "I was their daydream. I had the worst kind of acceptance because it was never for how great I was or what I contributed." Horne plunged into activism after 1945, when she performed at an Army base and saw German pris oners of war sitting in front while Black American soldiers were consigned to the rear.
