CALUMET CITY - Queen Academy

is now in search of a business owner

who can mentor their girls about what it

takes to run/own a business. They serve

girls of color ages 8 to 14 by offering

over 20 courses including self-esteem

building, hair care, financial literacy,

modeling, and creative writing. If you'd

be interested in joining their family, you can commit to teaching

once a month for 45 minutes. Contact them at their website

at www.QueenAcademy17.com.

CHILDREN - 14K empty shoes outside the US Capitol on

Tuesday, March 13, 2018, to represent every child killed

with a gun since the Sandy Hook Massacre. If we truly

cared, would this be a news item?

FREE CLOTHING - Everyone is Welcome and Everything is

Free! The Lincoln Boutique Free Store located at 6454 S.

Champlain in Chicago is inviting everyone to stop by on Saturdays

from 1 PM to 4 PM. Hosted as an outreach ministry for

Lincoln Memorial Congregational UCC church.

GEORGIA – The more things change, the more they stay the

same. Newly elected Mayor Rufus Davis of Camilla, GA was

locked out of his own office for two years. And, if you visit the

Mayor’s Facebook page, you can see the Civil War being

played out in GA, on a smaller scale, as it is across our nation.

SOUTH AFRICA – Newly elected South African President

Cyril Ramaphosa has announced his intent to redistribute land,

now owned by white farmers. A November audit showed that

73% of farmland was still owned by whites, two decades after

the end of apartheid. A 1913 land act stripped most Black

South Africans of their rights to own land. (Similar to the laws

enacted by the Europeans upon the African and Native Indians

on this continent, denying access to the same resources, the reason

for continued generations of poverty.)
