EDUCATION - Is 5 years of age too young to start learning about stocks and

bonds? John Rogers, CEO of Ariel Investments, doesn’t think so and is currently

involved in creating future financial professionals at the Ariel Community Academy

located on the south side of Chicago. In a recent interview with Black Enterprises,

Mr. Rogers stated that, “First, we wanted our students to be really

comfortable with the stock market.” He also indicated that, “...it’s critical for

young people to start out with a sound financial footing.”

CRIME – The trial for alleged Chicago west side street gang leaders Cornel

Dawson and Terry Odum will be the first test in Cook County of Illinois’ racketeering

law. The new law was passed in 2012 and permits prosecutors to hold

crime bosses accountable for the actions of the entire gang. More than 20 purported

Black Soul members were arrested in 2013 under this statute.

SPORTS – Love Basketball? Sherman Park will be hosting a Basketball Skills

Camp for ages 9 – 18 every Friday from 3:30 pm – 6 pm at 1301 W. 52 nd Street.

According to Dr. Health Benefits.com, being involved with sports helps youth

control weight, build endurance, improves mental development, helps develop

socialization skills and it’s just plain fun.

BOOKS – Author Matt Taibbi’s book “I Can’t Breathe” was just released.

Those words launched a nation outcry and prompted protest by the “Black Lives

Matter” movement in response to the death of Eric Gardner at the hands of New

York police officers in July of 2014.
