We rebroadcast a special show featuring Rev. Liza Rankow and Rev. Dr. Dorsey Blake on the sad occasion of Dr. Thurman's last surviving child, Olive Thurman Wong, passing from this life on Thursday, April 5th, at the age of 84. She was surrounded by loving family and friends. The West coast memorial service will be held on this Saturday, April 14th, at 11:00AM at the Church for the Fellowship of All Peoples,  2041 Larkin St., San Francisco (www.fellowshipsf.org). An East coast memorial celebration will be held in New York City, sometime in May. We lost another wonderful woman, Christine Nyanda-Chacha this week as well. Mama Chacha, a mother, wife, sister, friend, philanthropist, innovator, pillar of strength passed while on a medical visit in South Africa and funds are needed to bring her body back to the USA for burial. She founded the organization African Immigrants Social and Cultural Services (AISCS), an organization that works to better the lives of African immigrants in the United States and of rural communities in Tanzania (www.aiscs.org). In 2012, Mama Chacha received the prestigious Jefferson Award as well as the Ubuntu Award from Priority Africa Network. She is survived by her husband Ezra, and her 5 children, Julius, Pamela, Eliazar, Jeremiah, and Sarah. It will cost approximately $25,000 to cover all the costs. Donations can be made directly via Pay Pal at http://www.mamachachafund.com. Visitation and funeral service arrangements are to be determined. For more information, contact samwario@yahoo.com.
