    NIR Welcomes Carol H. Williams

    in Current Events

    Carol H. Williams, President, CEO & Chief Creative Officer, founded Carol H. Williams Advertising (CHWA) more than two decades ago after recognizing the need for advertising that speaks to the sophisticated and influential African-American and urban markets.


    Started in 1986 in Carol’s living room, CHWA now has offices in Oakland, Calif., and Chicago, and a satellite office in New York. With a highly diverse and skilled staff CHWA produces award-winning advertising and marketing campaigns for Fortune 500 companies—including General Motors (Cadillac), General Mills, Kraft, Gilead Sciences, HP, Nationwide Insurance, Procter & Gamble, the U.S. Army, The Walt Disney Company, Marriott and several others. CHWA’s annual billings have exceeded $100 million for more than a decade.


    Before establishing CHWA, Carol already had more than a decade of pioneering advertising work behind her. Top marketing executives recognized her creative spirit in college and competed to hire her. Carol started her career at Leo Burnett Company in Chicago and quickly earned a position as the first female and first African-American Creative Director and Vice President. After 13 years at Leo Burnett, she served two years as Senior Vice President, Creative Director at Foote, Cone & Belding in San Francisco.

    Dr. Hollie-Major with Special Guest Laticia Nicole

    in Entrepreneur

    La’Ticia Nicole often says, “I am just a girl from Detroit, MI who had dreams of success.” In 1992, she moved to NC with $15, four outfits and a dream. The thought of being what others said she would become gave her the perseverance to gain admittance to Livingstone College. Her passion for helping people led her to transfer to Winston Salem State University where she graduated with a BS in Nursing with honors. La’Ticia Nicole furthered her education by receiving a MBA. The two degrees allowed her to become an Executive Director in the long-term care industry thus accentuating her desire & passion for helping others. She credits her success to God, her mother, grandmother & a loving family who instilled strong morals, values and work ethics. The term “entrepreneur” doesn't begin to describe who she is. She is a giver. Her strong desire to empower, promote self-awareness and self-esteem throughout the community lead her to create the nonprofit organization Professional Divas, Inc. Her platform, La’Ticia Nicole #SpeakLife, has allowed her to motivate others by simply speaking life into the dead areas that cause people to feel broken and angry. 


    Dr. Hollie-Major aka “The Co-Pilot” is a results-oriented leader, educator, transformational leadership coach, philanthropist, speaker, & writer. She has a leadership approach that embodies developing the mind, body & spirit. Leadership programs for emerging & new leaders is her passion & Signature Series.  She empowers people to discover & achieve their goals & ultimate success as they move forward.  Her technique is “action-oriented” and applied from a “systematic” framework to enhance the lives of her clients.

    When not jamming with business owners, She is playing on her congas, going on dates with her husband Chris, and playing in the surf with her 5-year old girl, or talking to Mer-Angels. Yup. Literally.

    The Jaxon Navarro-Gilmore Case

    in Politics

    Description taken from:  https://amiracle42sisters.wordpress.com/2015/02/17/bring-baby-jaxon-home/


    The Jaxon Navarro Gilmore case is a tragic case.  His Maternal Grandmother Jessica Navarro-Gilmore, has her Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing and loves and has the ability to care for her grandson, baby Jaxon.  The Connecticut Department of Children and Families (DCF) is blocking her from doing so, while this medically frail child is in a foster care home with strangers.  Jessica already has custody of her granddaughter with the approval of the same agency, (DCF), that is blocking her from having Jaxon  home in a loving caring family environment.  Jessica adopted her granddaughter from DCF who clearly had no concerns of her parenting. Her granddaughter is healthy and thriving in her Grandmother’s care.


    Jaxon is Blackfoot Indian and Taino Indian with loving family ready, willing and able to step up and provide the necessary care for him. The only rational reason that Jaxon is being kept from re-joining his loving family is the funding he can bring to the state from contracts with certain hospitals and providers. 


    Two years ago Jessica was diagnosed with post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) after the sudden and tragic loss of her daughter. Jessica’s young granddaughter was adopted by Jessica less than 2 years ago in the State of Connecticut with no issues whatsoever, despite her diagnosis of PTSD.  Just as her condition in no way affects her ability to care for and love her granddaughter, neither would it affect her ability to care for baby Jaxon.

    The Real Rosewood Story with Lizzie Robinson Jenkins

    in History

    The Real Rosewood Foundation, Inc.


    The Real Rosewood Foundation was created in 2002 to develop a timeline, expand the search, find lost survivors, and locate descendants – black and white, inviting cultural participation to preserve an important history.


    Though it has been ninety-two years since the massacre, the descendants are still in touch with their beginning. Each year in July they celebrate family reunions. They are not angry and do not dwell on the past destruction of their hometown. Choosing to attain higher learning, many have gone on to become educators, doctors, lawyers, engineers, superintendent of schools, and skilled workers. They never lost the work ethics and values instilled in them by their ancestors. A most recent development regarding Rosewood is the interest of white Rosewood descendants in helping protect the history.


    This foundation is dedicated to building the Rosewood Black History Preservation and Research Center in memory of the Rosewood survivors and descendants at Mahulda's Archer, Florida homestead. Additionally, the foundation sponsors a scholarship in honor of Mahulda Gussie Brown Carrier, the third Rosewood schoolteacher employed in Levy County. Carrier is the first and only black female principal employed in Levy County and is believed the second black female principal hired in the state of Florida . The foundation is working to produce a documentary recapping real truths by historian Lizzie Jenkins, founder and president of The Real Rosewood Foundation, who is writing her life story which includes how she unlocked the secrets of Rosewood through consistent research. Moreover, the foundation is producing two songs, "Rosewood Florida" and "Rosewood, No More".
