YES, WE SERVED in the Mexican War.
Many of the blacks in the army during
the Mexican War were servants of
the officers who received government compensation for the services
of their servants as slaves. Also, soldiers from the Louisiana Battalion of
Free Men of Color participated in this
war. Blacks also served on a number
of navel vessels during this war,
including the U. S. S. Treasure and the
U.S.S. Columbus.
YES, WE SERVED in the Civil War to
ensure that all Americans would have
the opportunity to be free and live in
peace and with dignity; our efforts
helped to provide a united governby Dr. William B.Lyons IV
ment where laws based on human
rights could be enforced throughout our country. The history of
African-Americans in the U.S.Civil War is marked by 186,097 AfricanAmerican men, comprising 163 units, who served in the Union Army
during the Civil War, and many more African-Americans served in
the Union Navy.
YES, WE SERVED in the Indian Wars. From the late 1860s to the early
20th century, African-American units were utilized by the United
States Government to combat the Native Americans during the
Indian Wars. The most noted of this group were the Buffalo Soldiers:
9th Cavalry Regiment, 10th Cavalry Regiment, 24th Infantry
Regiment, 25th Infantry Regiment. YES, WE SERVED in the Spanish
American War. After the Indians Wars ended in the 1890s, the same
regiments that participated in the Indian Wars continued to serve
and participate in the Spanish American War (including the Battle of
San Juan Hill), where five more medals of honor were earned. These
soldiers took part in the 1916 Punitive Expedition into Mexico and in
the Philippine-American War.

The introduction of Blacks in the U.S.
Army, Then and Now begins with the
following excerpt, which provides
some basic information on Blacks in
military service. Mapped against the
obstacles that all African Americans
faced from this country's inception
until now, we can appreciate the
tremendous challenges that Black
service members faced and the greatness of their successes. Their accomplishments should make every
American proud. IntroductionThe
history of Blacks serving in the United
States Army is a long and proud one.
In 1776, Congress passed legislation
that allowed Black men to enlist in
the Armed Services. In response to
this Congressional Act, approximately
7,000 Black men joined the Army and
Revolutionary War. Then, in the last
1800's, six regiments consisting of
black Soldiers were established.
These Soldiers became known as the
"Buffalo Soldiers". Thirty-nine of the
Buffalo Soldiers were awarded the
highly prestigious Congressional
Medal of Honor.

‘Dallas’ Too Busy Growing To Hate
February 13 - 19, 2014

Dear Editor,
A new report from the
American Cancer Society predicts
that breast cancer will likely affect
more Texans than any other cancer
in 2014. But it doesn't have to.
Studies have shown a link
between high cholesterol and
breast cancer, and scientists say
the research suggests that women
may be able to reduce breast cancer risk by either taking cholesterol-lowering drugs or eating a
healthy, low-cholesterol diet.
Personally, I would rather up my
intake of colorful meals than colorful medicines. Fruits and vegetables have zero cholesterol, which is
just one reason why you'll find
scores of them on lists of "cancerfighting foods." Whole grains are
cholesterol-free too. In fact, no
plant product contains any cholesterol.
But meat, eggs, and dairy products all pack a cholesterol punch. A
single egg has 212 milligrams,
three and a half ounces of shrimp
has 194, and three and a half
ounces of chicken liver delivers a
whopping 631 milligrams.
I lost the person that I was closest to, my grandmother, to breast
cancer when she was just 64 years
old. So reducing my breast cancer
risk is important to me. And cutting
animal products out of my diet is
an easy way to do that.
Going vegan is one of the best
decisions I've ever made, and I
hope that, until there is a cure for
breast cancer, others will join me in
taking this important step for their

As America continues to celebrate the countless achievements
of African Americans during Black
History Month, it makes sense to
remind each other that the things
we do every day will be the historical recollections for future generations.
There is no question of the
value of recounting the daring
exploits, the against-all-odds battles won, or of revisiting the horrors and brutalities that marked
our journey through this country’s
history. I just don’t believe that
enough of us approach our daily
commitments with an eye on how
our actions – or inactions – will
impact the lives of Black Americans
in the future.
I could fill this space with the
names of prodigious Black inventors, from Jan Matzeliger to
Norbert Rilleaux, Garrett Morgan
to Dr. Mark Dean. We all know the
contributions of Samuel Cornish
and John Russwurm and their
Sengstackes, the Murphys, the
Vanns, the Scotts, the John H.
Johnsons and the Earl G. Graves
and their heroic struggles to make
sure our stories were told – accurately. We know of Madame C.J.
Walker, A.G. Gaston, Alonzo
Herndon, Oprah, Bob Johnson,
Herman Russell and the empire
builders of the business world.
But today I want to give a Black
History shout out to the millions of
women and men who rose before
dawn and got home long after
everyone was asleep. The barbers,
hairdressers, shopkeepers, brick
masons, carpenters, café owners,
mechanics, painters, printers, shoe
shine fellows and repairmen. The
tailors, grocers, ice, coal and wood
deliverymen…. All the folks whose
toils paved the way for us, paid the
tuition to Howard, Morehouse,
Johnson C. Smith, Fisk, Xavier,
Dillard, FAMU and all the “A&M’s”
across the south!
After nearly 50 years of successfully aspiring to “good jobs,” we are
witnessing a boom in the numbers
of Black Americans returning to
our roots as entrepreneurs and
business owners, and this boom
couldn’t have come at a better
time. When it’s clear that government solutions to income inequality fail to factor in or include us;
when Black un- and underemployment threaten the nutritional
health and educational opportunities for our children; when globalization of markets consigns our
participation to the role of consumers, that’s when it should
become clear the key role that
Black business plays in our commu-
The U.S Black Chambers, Inc.
(USBC) is acutely aware of the battle that African Americans face in
the marketplace today. When
online purchases of clothing
eclipses the purchases made inside
actual stores, the opportunities for
Black retailers practically disappears. Despite the obvious love
affair Black folks have with hats,
suits, shoes and boots, it is
Nordstrom, Macy’s, Neiman’s and
local designer boutiques that get
their share of our income inequality, not Black-owned clothes sellers.
We struggle to find a Blackowned grocery chain, even though
African Americans spend a disproportionate share of their disposable income on food. Black-owned
restaurants are an increasingly
endangered species, even as
national chains pad their bottom
lines with the lion’s share of our
discretionary spending on food,
including sushi.
Black automobile dealers fare a
little better, though the 80s and
90s wreaked havoc on the number
of franchised dealerships owned by
African Americans. Without question, we continue to provide the
comfortable profit cushion, particularly for luxury brand automobiles. (Remember, every dollar
earned without advertising/marketing effort to earn that dollar is
FREE MONEY!) Telecom companies, high-end electronics, “luxury”
liquors, condo sellers and jewelers
all positively salivate when their
coffers fill up with Black dollars.
Among the goals of the USBC,
entrepreneur development is the
loftiest and most elusive. But we
believe if we are successful at
reigniting our passion for business
ownership, we will have the best
opportunity to solve the challenges
faced by Black America. The record
of our ability to build colleges,
insurance companies and hospitals
proves that when necessary, we
can achieve monumental “wins”
through collective entrepreneurial
activity. And — in today’s terminology – joint ventures, mergers and
acquisitions provide the context
for our next collective steps in business growth.
So, we at the USBC and our affiliates across the country encourage
you to be more mindful, and more
intentional as you pursue your
dreams. Understand that 20, 50,
100 years from now someone will
read the record of your contribution to life as they know it, and the
fact that you made a lot of money
won’t be enough to get your name
in the record book. Business ownership opens doors of opportunity,
not just for you and your family,
but the families of your employees,
associates, customers/clients, vendors and suppliers. That improved
quality of life affords access to
opportunities for education, earning, travel and the new worlds they
discover will create future generations of inventors and history makers. Black History is made and celebrated every day… make sure that
your everyday actions pave the

We’re used to making a big fuss
over children’s birthdays, but this
week child advocates and families
across the country are celebrating
CHIP, the Children’s Health
Insurance Program, on the fifth
anniversary of its reauthorization.
One family who lives in the working-class Germantown neighborhood of Philadelphia with their 6-,
4- and 3-year-old children told us
they celebrate and are grateful for
CHIP every day. The husband is a
talented freelance videographer
and the wife cares for the children.
CHIP has been a lifeline for the
family, providing stability with
health and dental coverage for the
children. With CHIP coverage, she
gets regular phone calls reminding
her it’s time for appointments or
letting her know a dental van is in
the area. CHIP has opened doors to
high quality child-appropriate
providers at the Children’s Hospital
of Philadelphia and the University
of Pennsylvania Health System
when needed and provided peace
of mind for the hardworking father,
whose income can vary wildly from
month to month and year to year.
CHIP has given him security knowing his children are getting the care
they need without breaking the
bank. The wife says, “The kids
wouldn’t have had health insurance if it wasn’t for CHIP.”
There are more than 8 million
children with stories like this. To
survive and thrive, all children
need access to comprehensive,
affordable health coverage that is
easy to get and keep. Unmet health
and mental health needs can result
in children falling behind developmentally and having trouble catching up physically, emotionally,
socially, and academically. And it
can mean life or death for children
from preventable disease and illness.
CHIP has strong bipartisan
roots. It was created in 1997 when
Democrats and Republicans, led by
Senators Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) and
Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.), came
together to create a system of
health coverage for children whose
families earned too much to qualify for Medicaid but too little to be
able to buy health coverage that
today costs on average more than
$16,000 a year for a family of four
in the individual market. CHIP continues to provide crucial support
for millions of working families: 92
percent of all children enrolled in
CHIP had at least one parent
employed during the last year.
Since its creation CHIP has helped
cut the number of uninsured children in half, to the lowest level on
record, while improving child
health outcomes and access to
By preserving and strengthening CHIP and Medicaid and creating
new coverage options for parents,
access to health coverage is now
available for 95 percent of all children in America. But eligibility and
access to coverage do not guarantee enrollment. While 42 million
children are enrolled in CHIP and
Medicaid, more than 8 million in
CHIP alone, more than 7 million
children under 19 are still uninsured. Nearly 70 percent of these
uninsured children are eligible for
but not enrolled in CHIP or
We know health-related problems can lead to poor academic
performance and that uninsured
children are more likely to perform
poorly in school than children with
coverage. CDF has partnered with
AASA, The School Superintendents
Association, to link uninsured children with health coverage by
adding a question to school enrollment forms asking whether children have health coverage and
helping connect uninsured students with coverage.
Although CHIP is authorized
through 2019, its funding is running out and will virtually disappear by October 2015 unless
Congress takes immediate action.
If funding is not continued, millions
of children would lose health coverage and millions more would
likely receive less comprehensive
coverage at significantly higher
cost. Either would be an enormous
step backwards for children.
Congress must act this year to keep
CHIP funding for millions of families and prevent uncertainty and
discontinuity for children, parents,
or states about CHIP’s future.
When CHIP was reauthorized in
February 2009, President Obama
correctly said: “No child in America
should be receiving her primary
care in the emergency room in the
middle of the night. No child
should be falling behind in school
because he can’t hear the teacher
or see the blackboard. I refuse to
accept that millions of our kids fail
to reach their potential because
we fail to meet their basic needs. In
a decent society, there are certain
obligations that are not subject to
tradeoffs or negotiations – health
care for our children is one of
those obligations.”
Let’s celebrate CHIP’s track
record of success the common
sense way by acting now to ensure
CHIP in states across the country
can continue the good work.
Rev. Johnny C. Smith,
Pastor – Mount Moriah
Missionary Baptist Church
The superscription of this
blessed Psalm 61 reads, "To the
chief Musician upon Neginah, A
Psalm of David." The word "neginah" means a stringed instrument; thus, this psalm can be
played upon a stringed instrument. The historical occasion for
Psalm 61 is unknown; however,
in this psalm, David is awfully
depressed but he gains confidence in the Lord as his Rock.
The word of God informs us in I
Corinthians 10:4 that the "Rock"
is Jesus Christ, that verse reads,
"And did all drink the same
spiritual drink: for they drank of
that spiritual Rock that followed
them: and that Rock was Christ."
In verses 1-2, David expresses
his feeling of being weak and he
prays to the Lord for strength and
safety, "Hear my cry, O God;
attend unto my prayer" (v. 1).
David petitions to be led to a
place of safety; thus, he wanted
to be led to the "Rock" that is
higher than he was, "when my
heart is overwhelmed: lead me
to the rock that is higher than I"
(v. 2). In times of deep trouble
and distress, we need God's
steadfast protection, for Psalm
17:8 says, "Keep me under the
shadow of thy wings."
Yes, as the storms of life rage,
we need God's comfort and
assurance as He grants to us His
unfailing mercy, for Psalm 57:1
states, "Be merciful unto me: for
my soul trusteth in thee: yea, in
the shadow of thy wings will I
make my refuge, until these
calamities be overpast." David
experienced tremendous spiritual relief in the above examples by
placing his faith in the steadfast
character of God. God will never
abandon His saint and one can
be assured of God's presence in
any situation, in that Hebrews
13:5-6 says, "I will never leave
thee, nor forsake thee. So that
we may boldly say, The Lord is my
helper, and I will not fear what
man shall do unto me."
Having expressed his weakness, David declares his confidence in the steadfast character
of God, his only source of protec-
tion (vv. 3-4). David knew that
God was indeed a sure hiding
place against his enemies as
verse 3 states, "For thou hast
been a shelter for me, and a
strong tower from the enemy."
God's presence is a sure place of
safety for all believers! Because
of the Lord's faithful promise to
him, in verse 5-7, David was confident of God's protection in prolonging his life; thus, David's life
will be sustained by God's love
and faithfulness, "Thou wilt prolong the king's life: and his years
as many generations" (v. 6).
Because of the Lord's faithfulness toward him, David vows to
sing and to praise the Lord for His
deliverance, "So will I sing praise
unto thy name for ever, that I
may daily perform my vows" (v.
May God Bless!
A Little Bit of Faith: : You Are Loved
By Colleen White
The most wonderful love letter ever written is the Bible.
The Bible allows mankind to
hear God's voice, experience
His love and compassion for His
people, and to see how our
hope is built on His son Jesus
Christ. All of us have a strong
desire to be loved. We want a
sincere love, a love that will
never end, and a love that will
stand the test of time.
Since we all desire to be
loved, Valentine's Day can leave
many of us feeling unloved and
not wanted. But if we move
toward the Word of God, He
can help us to see that His per-
fect love for us is all that we
need. There is no need for us
to feel lonely or unloved. He
loves us more completely and
more deeply than anyone ever
Therefore, in First John, it
reminds us that God loves us
completely. "We have known
and believed the love that God
has for us. God is love" (1 John
4:16). The purest, most honest,
and most joyful love that we
can ever experience is the love
that our Heavenly Father has
for us. As a matter of fact,
God's love for us always has
action. He does not give us lip
service, he shows us. The
major way God has shown how
much He loves us is by giving us
His only Son Jesus. Jesus was
born of a virgin, lived among us,
crucified, and He rose again.
So if you were feeling a little
lonely, unloved, and unwanted
this past Valentine's Day, cheerup. Know that you have a
greater love. The love of God!
Amen? Amen.

Against Poverty
“Come and Experience God’s
Love for YOU Each Sunday”
By Congresswoman
Eddie Bernice Johnson
The scripture, "We who are
strong must bear the infirmities
of the weak, and not seek to
please ourselves," defines the
life's work of the last surviving
speaker at the 1963 March on
Congressman John Lewis is a
civil rights icon who played a key
role during that march, and in
the movement that changed
America. On February 24th,
Congressman John Lewis, will be
in Dallas to speak at my 21st
annual prayer breakfast.
During his speech 50 years
ago, Congressman Lewis echoed
the sentiments of that scripture.
Congressman Lewis talked about
the necessity of improving the
lives of sharecroppers who
worked for less than three dol-
lars each day, and for maids who
worked full-time but earned
only $5.00 each week while
cleaning the homes of others.
The then 23 year-old student,
demanded that the Congress of
the United States pass "meaningful legislation" that would
give millions of people an opportunity to escape the ravages of
poverty, find jobs, and become
members of the middle class. He
was not asking the government
to give people a handout, but
instead he asked for a level
playing field so that all
Americans could get a hand up.
Congressman Lewis's speech,
his work, and the work of Dr.
Martin Luther King Jr., and so
many others, led President
Lyndon Baines Johnson to
declare a "war on poverty"
which, with the aid of a compassionate and wiling Congress,
offered millions of American citizens an open hand so that their
lives, and the lives of their children might improve.
These same fights for a livable
minimum wage and equal pay
for women are still being fought
today, 50 years later. During his
recent State of the Union
Obama, who was weeks short of
his second birthday during the
1963 march, asked a joint session of Congress to give poor
working class Americans a livable minimum wage, and to confront the blatant reality of
income inequality in America
that grows rapidly each day.
A recent written report stated
that nearly 24 percent of all
inner-city residents in Dallas live
below the poverty line. The
numbers are similar to those
found in many of our larger
cities, and rural areas. I know
that you will agree with me
when I say that the situation is
unacceptable and must be
addressed and rectified. This is
an issue that my fellow
Democrats in Congress and I are
focused on.
In 1963, a youthful John Lewis
marched for "jobs and freedom." He is coming to Dallas
because the reasons for the
march are still uncompleted. No
doubt he will use the same
words that he articulated on
August 28th, 1963 when he concluded his speech by saying,
"Wake up America! Wake up"!"

Each year efforts of
the African American
Education Archives and
History Program remind
the public that African
American education in
Dallas County came at a
high price over more
than a century and a
half of Dallas County
history, and that many
heroic and dedicated
African American educators willingly paid
that price for past, present and future generations.

one of five components

Cedric Collins committed to
Texas A&M in August 2012.
After the playoffs that year,
numbness in his legs led him to
a trip to the doctor; he had a
rare congenital cervical abnormality.
Doctors told him would never
play football again.
Even though Collins will
never play for the Aggies in
College Station, the school has
decided to honor his scholarship.

Clearly the talk of the town . . .
our 2014 African American History
Series opens with a standing ovation for Bishop Samuel Evans, who
was inducted into the College of
Bishops in a sacred ceremony with
bishops and presbyters (ordained
elders) in attendance. The service
of Episcopal Consecration to the
Office of Bishop was held
November 11, 2013, in the church
he founded and still pastors in
Paris, Texas.
When news of Bishop Evans
elevation to a higher calling landed
in the DFW area, one of Dallas eld-
Bishop Evans, the 6th of nine
children from El Dorado, Arkansas,
moved with his family to Dallas
when he was a young rising prodigy. After a tour of duty in the U.S.
Military, he entered into study at
Southern Bible Institute , onward
to secure his Bachelor and Masters
of Theology from Anchor
Distinguished clergy and worshippers across Texas and beyond
know and love Bishop Evans. He
has a big wide grin complimented
with a genuine tone. Church families in and around the DFW metroplex are in annual fellowship with
his church. His family and friends
are so very proud. He loves sports.
It was in the Army that he accepted his calling to the ministry. But,
Bishop Evans is a "rock star" of the
gospel because he has had a
reserved seat in some of the most
renown pulpits in the northern
Where you go in life is directly
related to where you have been
and who you hang around. Bishop
Evans was mentored and monitored by such giants in the ministry
as Dr. CAW Clark, former pastor of
