If there is no struggle, there is no
progress. Those who profess to favor
freedom, and yet deprecate agitation,
are men who want crops without
plowing up the ground. They want rain
without thunder and lightening. They
want the ocean without the awful roar
of its many waters. This struggle may
be a moral one; or it may be a physical
one; or it may be both moral and
physical; but it must be a struggle.
Power concedes nothing without
demand.
FREDERICK DOUGLASS

Human progress is neither
automatic nor inevitable...
Every step toward the
goal of justice requires
sacrifice, the tireless
exertions and dedicated
individuals.
MARTIN LUTHER KING

Whatever your life's work is, do it well. A
man should do his job so well that the
living, the dead, and the unborn could do
it no better.


The ultimate measure of a man is not
where he stands in moments of comfort
and convenience, but where he stands at
times of challenge and controversy.
MARTIN LUTHER KING JR.

June 23, 1940, in St. Bethlehem, TN, Rudolph grew up in nearby
Clarksville. As a young child, Rudolph's left leg was crippled by
polio. Determined to walk without a brace, Rudolph wrote in her
1977 autobiography, "I think I started acquiring a competitive
spirit right then and there … a spirit that would make me
successful in sports later on." By the time she was 12, the
brace had been sent back to the hospital, and Rudolph was the
star of her high school track and basketball teams. Within four
years she had developed into a world-class sprinter. After
graduating high school, Rudolph received a full scholarship to
Tennessee State College, today Tennessee State University.

At the 1956 Olympics in Melbourne, Australia, 16-year-old
Rudolph helped her team win a bronze medal in the 400-meter
team relay. Four years later in Rome, after setting a world record
at trials in Texas, she became the first American woman to win
three gold medals in track-and-field during a single Olympic
Games. Running on a sprained ankle, Rudolph placed first in the
100-and 200-meter dashes and anchored her team to victory in
the 400-meter relay.

Rudolph retired from running in 1962 at the height of her
success. She worked as a teacher and a coach, and in the
early 1980s established the Wilma Rudolph Foundation, a
nonprofit group focused on development of young athletes.

Respected for her perseverance and grace, she was twice
named Associated Press Woman Athlete of the Year (1960,
1961), inducted into the U.S. Olympic Hall of Fame in 1983, and
honored with the National Sports Award in 1993.

Wilma Rudolph died in her Brentwood, TN, home, outside
Nashville, on Nov. 12, 1994.

There is no success as a people, no matter how well you
are paid, without self-determination and
legacy/family/communityprotection
and respect.

Rap music began about 30
years ago and today,
rap/hiphop empires are
employing our youth and
creating thousands of
millionaires and soon-to-be
billionaires. They are hard
working and determined.     
Unlike many adults that were
discouraged about lack of
diversity, when doors closed in
their faces, they started their
own companies.  They are
now making their own movies,
investing in pro-athletic
teams...and they learned
through the school of hard
knocks.
From L A Sentinel
No one has the ability to appreciate you

Roll your eyes in ecstasy and ape

corner that is our own, we are right
back where we were when they
filed our iron collar off.

sunlight by work and only remain
there by more work.

"SAINT  LOUIS"
When you control a man's thinking, you do not have to worry about his
actions. You do not have to tell him not to stand here or go yonder. He
will find his "proper place" and will stay in it. You do not need to send
him to the  back door. He will go without being told. In fact, if there is
no back door, he will cut one out for his special benefit.
Carter G. Woodson
