SENIORS AGAINST A FEARFUL ENVIRONMENT
"Seniors Against a Fearful Environment (SAFE), a nonprofit corporation, was begun by the Black Panther Party at the request of a group of senior citizens for the purpose of preventing muggings and attacks upon the elderly, particularlywhen they go out to cash their meager social security or pension checks. Prior to approaching the Black Panther Party, the seniors had gone to the Oakland Police Department to request protection. There the seniors were told, to their dismay and outrage, that they "should walk close to the curb" in the future. Mrs. Van Frank, founder of the East Bay Legislative Council of Senior Citizens and the state of California's Outstanding Senior Citizen for 1971, commenting on the dangers experienced by the senior citi zens, has remarked: "The fear engendered among us old people by these mug gings almost makes us prisoners in our own homes."
A section of a recent funding proposal for the SAFE Program substantiates these claims. A comparative crime study was done over a period of six weeks (August 21 to October 1, 1972) and details conclusively that the age of the victim does bear a de nite relationship to the type ofo ense committed. Ofthe com bined total of 249 victims of strong-arm robbery and purse-snatching, 48 per cent ofthe victims (118) were overthe age of y. During this same period, only 13 percent of complainants in armed robbery cases fell into the senior citizen category. The conclusion, then, is that an elderly person is more likely to be physically attacked, whereas the younger, more agile person, who is more able to a defend his- or herself, will more likely be the victim of an armed assault. The fact has also been established that 33 percent of all crimes committed in the city of Oakland are committed against senior citizens."
What exactly is the Spiritual stance of the Black Panther Party? THE SON OF MAN TEMPLE was created by Huey P. Newton which had a purpose in the spiritual lives of the Panthers through the acceptance of all, but mandated no religious preference. It is stated as follows by Huey in the “STATEMENT OF PURPOSE”
“We have always hoped that we could establish a place in our community where hundreds of ideas could grow and flourish, where people could feel free to say and do the things that seemed most natural to them. The Son of Man Temple was created for that purpose, to serve in humankind’s development.
However, the place in which we come together to espresso our humanity is not a church in the most traditional sense. We do not practice a religion; we are not Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, Hindu, or Moslem. We do not honor one God or one reverend. This does not mean that we negate any religion; we all have differing philosophies and jews of our world. We are all part of everything and it is a part of each of us.
Our belief is that every human being has the right to be free. We can all agree that we are not. Therefore, we come together to express our agreement on the belief every Sunday at the Son of Man Temple. It is a place where we can come to discover and learn. If we begin the week with this kind of unity and understanding, we can carry through each day our concern and an enthusiastic felling about our survival and our freedom.
The ways in which we express this agreement about our desire to break away from our common problems—oppression—may differ. Some of us might sing or dance about it, some of us might play music about it, or some of us might speak about various aspects of our problem. It does not matter what we do if it is done with sincerity and in our people’s interest." Huey P. Newton
On Monday 8th February, 2016 at 7 pm CT, our guest will be our good friend Kenn Gividen from Daily.Kenn.com.
Kenn is one of our favourite guests as he has a unique perspective and a way with words that puts complex issues into a very easy to understand format
"Asa Philip Randolph was about ten when a group of solemn, angry men arrived at his Jacksonville, Florida, home one afternoon. They wanted to see his father, Reverend James William Randolph. The reverend gathered the men in the family's sparse living room, and they told him what had happened.
A black man had been locked up in the Duval County jail and angry white men were muttering about hanging him without a trial. Such hangings, known as lynchings, were terribly familiar to black people, particularly in the South. But the city of Jacksonville had a tradition of African American pride; the black men gathered in Randolph house were not willing to tolerate lynching. Guns packed, they were prepared to encircle the jail and greet the white mob with force. They wanted the reverend to join them.
The Randolph's kept two guns in the house, a Bulldog pistol and a shotgun. James Randolph handed his wife the shotgun, took the Bulldog for himself and headed for the Jail. Elizabeth Randolph, a dead shot, kept the gun cradled across her lap for the rest of the night. The Reverend returned home at dawn, exhausted but relieved. When the lynch mob was confronted with the jail's armed defenders they wisely backed down." A. PHILIP RANDOLPH and the AFRICAN AMERICAN LABOR MOVEMENT by Calvin Craig Miller.
Our special guest is Veronique Jones, an artist who specializes in Ketubahs.
The ketubah is a unilateral agreement drawn by witnesses in accordance with Jewish civil law, in which they testify that the husband guarantees to his wife that he will meet certain minimum human and financial conditions of marriage. Once the ketubah is completed, the procession proceeds from the groom's table to the bridal throne, accompanied by singing and dancing.
Veronique Jonas (nee Soriano) was born in Lubumbashi, Zaire, presently the Republic of Congo. As a young girl, Veronique relocated with her family to South Africa where she received a Bachelor of Art degree from the University of Cape Town. As a young wife and mother Veronique once again relocated. This time to Dallas, Texas. For close to 20 years Veronique was Art Director and teacher to hundreds of Elementary and Middle school students at the Solomon Schechter Academy where she was known to draw out a child’s hidden inner potential to communicate through the medium of art.
Veronique still resides in Dallas with her husband of 40 years. Her 3 children are now grown, providing Veronique with yet another viewpoint of life as that of a grandmother.
