 Today's  History...

 

Stepping into his second term, on January 21, 2013, in Washington D.C. our 44th President Barack H. Obama, took office on the holiday honoring one of the most prominent African American leaders that this country has ever produced "Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr."


The split photo above shows the 44th President of the United States Barack H. Obama, and the late great Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., who led the U.S. Civil Rights Movement from the mid-1950's until his assassination in 1968, both delivering two different profound speeches some forty-six years apart in front of a large crowd in Washington, D.C.


 "The First Family of the United States - 2013"


President Obama was officially sworn in on Sunday, January 20, 2013 by Chief Justice John Roberts in the Blue Room of the White House with his first family of the United States of America, first lady Michelle Obama, holding the Robinson Family Bible, and their daughters, Malia and Sasha.

"The Presidential Inaugural Ball"

Where was I?

 On January 21, 2013, I attended an Inauguration Dinner & Dance organized by, Ms. Gwendolyn "DeDe" Daniels, and Ms. Iris Lancaster. I had a lovely evening. We dined, danced, applauded and saluted our 44th President of the United States.

The highlight of the evening for me was when the DJ stopped the music, and management turned all the TV monitors around the room to CNN so that all the guests could seize the moment when President Barack Obama and First lady Michelle Obama, danced to the sounds of many R&B Vocalists on that great night of "The Presidential Inaugural Ball."

Many thanks, to Ms. Gwendolyn "DeDe" Daniels for hosting an unforgettable evening, and much love to Ms. Wilma Perkins, for all her special touches.

A Tribute To Comedian, Civil Rights Activist, Entrepreneur - Mr. Dick Gregory... 




Born into poverty Richard Claxton “Dick” Gregory became an African-American comedian, civil rights activist, social critic, writer, conspiracy theorist, entrepreneur, and occasional actor. During the turbulent 1960s, Gregory became a pioneer in stand-up comedy for his "no-holds-barred" sets, in which he mocked bigotry and racism. He performed primarily to black audiences at segregated clubs until 1961, when he became the first black comedian to successfully cross over to white audiences, appearing on television and putting out comedy record albums.

Gregory was at the forefront of political activism in the 1960s, when he protested the Vietnam War and racial injustice. He was arrested multiple times and went on many hunger strikes. He later became a speaker and author, primarily promoting spirituality. 

Gregory died of heart failure at a Washington, D.C., hospital at age 84 in August of 2017. 




It was with great pleasure to meet Mr. Dick Gregory at a celebrity fundraiser that was held in North Dallas in 2016 benefiting our youth for tomorrow.

Galveston County Daily News Reads...  

The body of a missing Surfside Beach swimmer was found on Saturday July 3, 2011. 

SURFSIDE, Texas - Authorities have recovered the body of a 13-year-old girl who went missing while swimming with a friend in Brazoria County on Friday, July 2, 2011. 

Deputies said the girl was swimming with a 16-year-old friend at Surfside Beach near Stanek Road when they got caught in a current around 8:20 p.m. on Friday. 

Authorities said a Good Samaritan in a recreational boat saw them struggling and managed to rescue the 16-year-old. She was airlifted to the hospital in unknown condition.

 The U.S. Coast Guard arrived to the scene and used boats and a helicopter to search for the missing 13-year-old. 

They searched until 2 a.m. on Saturday and began again at daybreak, covering an area of more than 36 square nautical miles, authorities said. The search was called off around 11:45 a.m. 

On Saturday afternoon around 2:35p.m. Coast Guard officials said the girl's body was found near Access Road 6, about 20 yards offshore by a fisherman.
