One of the most important archaeological finds of our time is New York’s African Burial ground: the nation’s earliest and largest known African-American cemetery. For years it was hidden and violated, but holds the remains of New York City’s African and African-American pioneers and represents their significant history.

The African Burial Ground was designated a New York City Historic District and a National Landmark in 1993 and in 2003 some 10,000 participated in the “Rites of Ancestral Return” and re-interred the remains in a hand-carved wooden coffins from Ghana along with nearly 8,000 personal hand-written messages from the living to the African ancestors were also buried.

In 2006, the African Burial ground was pro- claimed a national monument and in 2007 the African Burial ground National Monument became the first National Monument dedicated to Africans of early New York and Americans of African descent: a sacred space honoring their memory, work, and lives.

There is not enough being done to lower the prices of prescription medications that could mean life or death for so many African Americans that depend on it to live.

The risk for getting type 2 diabetes increases with age with the highest incidence occurring between 65-75. This is precisely the point in life when income decreases. African American women are especially affected. They are likely to be care-givers and spend their hard-earned money on ensuring family members are healthy making access to insulin a greater challenge.

Recently, a coalition of health care, social jus- tice, and faith organizations launched “Affordable Insulin NOW,” a campaign demanding lower drug costs for those suffering from diabetes.

Together, we are raising our voices, amplifying each other’s stories, building on-the-ground teams, and demanding our policymakers and pharmaceutical companies work together to provide access to high quality and affordable insulin.

02/03/2020

Los Angeles Lakers legend Kobe Bryant and his daughter, Gianna Maria Onore, were among nine people killed in a helicopter crash on Sunday, January 26, 2020. Bryant was 41, and his daughter, affectionately known as GiGi, who was only 13.

“As the reports came in on the death of Kobe Bryant, his daughter and the other passengers on board his helicopter we all were shocked and saddened by the news of a life gone far too soon,” stated Danny J. Bakewell, Sr., the chairman and executive publisher of NNPA member newspaper, the Los Angeles Sentinel. “Whether you were a Laker fan or not, the news seemed surreal.”

Born in Philadelphia in 1978, Bryant was initially drafted by the Charlotte Hornets with the 13th overall pick of the 1996 NBA draft, but forced a post-draft trade to the Lakers, stating it was the only team he’d join. Bryant spent his entire career with the Lakers, winning five NBA championships and the 2008 MVP Award. He topped Michael Jordan for third place on the NBA all-time scoring list in December 2014 and retired in 2016 after scoring 60 points in his final game. His uniform numbers 8 and 24 were both retired by the franchise, making him the only NBA star to have two numbers retired with the same team.

Bryant is survived by his wife, Vanessa Laine Bryant, and children Natalia, Bianka, and Capri.

Zwanger-Pesiri Radiology offers state of the art imaging center in Harlem, conveniently located on the corner of 125th and St. Nicholas. This is exactly what is needed, to help women with their fight against breast cancer.

What sets Zwanger, Harlem location apart from any other radiology facility is that all of the equipment is brand new. State of the art imaging technology is also very safe, so there is little threat when it comes to screenings or the number of screenings that a patient can have.

Pat Stevenson, Publisher of the Harlem Community News said, “I am thrilled to have an imaging facility con- veniently located right here in Harlem where I live. I am a 3-year triple negative breast cancer survivor and have to take a mammogram every 6 months. Zwanger has the latest equipment and I will be coming here.”

In addition to mammography machines, Zwanger has MRI machines, cat scan, X-ray, ultrasound, and Dexa for bone density testing.
