    ?Harvey Boyd's current "mission" is preserving the land and the community of Crestdale, located southeast of Charlotte, in Matthews. Born in 1944, to Viola and Sam Boyd, Harvey described Crestdale as "a unique community in the U.S. One of the oldest African American communities founded right after the Civil War." Sitting on 135 acres of land in the center of Matthews, it is still owned by ancestors of the original families.

    Freedom Summer 50 Years and Today

    in Politics

    In the white community in 1964, there was some denial.
    "There was this sense that there was a hoax — that misters Chaney, Schwerner and Goodman were up in New York City and this was just a way to get publicity,There was the feeling that the national media was treating Philadelphia as a bunch of uneducated rednecks," he says. "And that became the topic of conversation rather than that there was this evil." recalls Dick Molpus, who was a teenager at the time and later became Mississippi's secretary of state.



    In June 1964, approximately 800 Northern college students and experienced Southern civil rights workers gathered on the Western campus in Ohio for two week-long training sessions.Sign up to volunteer to go to one of the following ten states: Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Ohio, Texas, Virginia and Wisconsin.http://nationalactionnetwork.net/freedom-summer-2014/

    Harvey Boyd reflects on his extraordinary life and opportunities as an African American man during the time of segregation. He begins by describing his childhood home--which is still his current residence--in Crestdale, North Carolina, located southeast of Charlotte in Matthews. During the interview, Harvey emphasizes his passion for art, and the black community’s view that becoming an artist was not an option for an African American man at the time. Harvey decided to transfer to West Charlotte High School in order to take art classes, and afterward he attended CPCC, acquiring an Associate’s degree in graphic design.

     Harvey recounts his experiences working for the Charlotte Observer in advertising, particularly in regard to the moments when he became more aware of segregation. After working in Charlotte for a few years, Harvey attended Howard University in Washington, DC and worked for the Washington Post. Harvey describes the differences he saw in a non-segregated city and his experiences as both an employee at the Washington Post and a student at Howard University. He emphasizes the influence of one of his African American art professors--Lois Mailou Jones--who confirmed that a career as an artist was possible for an African American.

    TOP STORIES


    1.   A 13 year old girl was detained and threatened with felony charges for using a legal $2.00 bill at the Christa McAuliffe Middle School cafeteria.  Not one school official or police officer was aware that the US has a $2.00 Bill.  This is beyond ignorance and ridiculous!


    2.   N.C. CPS Agent, Cheyenne Paylor removes children from grandparents (Legal Guardians) for contacting Health Impact News.  Without Freedom of Speech . . . ALL other Freedoms are moot.
