Aleeia Abraham
, highly respected leader of the 36,000+ Black Resource Network sent positive vibes to the new Pastor and his wife Ms. Lady Braea Green, "Congratulations to Rev. Stephen A. Green and his wife, Lady Braea Green on their new appointment as Pastor at The Greater Allen A.M.E. Cathedral of New York."  Her comments reflected the comments of many other members of her organization and residents of Southeast Queens last week.

Rev. Green is known to have quite an extensive background championing community causes and social justice.  Pastor Green seems to have had a passion for social justice from his family and early involvements in activism.

According to Faith For Black Lives "
Rev. Green’s passion to help others and fight the good fight started early. He grew up helping at his father’s church.

He began organizing against police brutality and gun violence while in high school in Little Rock, Arkansas. While studying at Morehouse College, the alma mater of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., he learned of the deaths of Troy Davis and Trayvon Martin and became a student organizer."

"KEITH LILLY, NEEDS YOUR HELP."

THE FORMER HARLEM, DISTRICT LEADER, 68TH ASSEMBLY DISTRICT, LOST HIS LEG, HIS JOB AND HIS  MEDICAL INSURANCE BECAUSE DUE TO DIABETES


Excerpted from BY NAYABA ARINDEOTP Editor-at-Large Our Times Press, Curated by Roz Shepard. To Support Keith Lilly Click Here

Keith Lilly, the popular former Harlem District Leader, 68th Assembly District, told Our Time Press that last July his lower left leg was amputated after 10 years of living with diabetes.

It all started, he said, with a small hole in his foot, which he did not feel because of his neuropathy. “I didn’t know where the hole came from, but I didn’t think anything of it. I cleaned it out, put a band-aid on, and a few days passed, and the hole started to get larger.”

A week later, he went to the hospital as the wound was not healing, “and my toes were swollen. So I went, they gave me antibiotics, and sent me home. But the hole got larger. But I had no symptoms of a fever, so I didn’t know I had an infection.

There was no numbness, no pain, just swelling and the hole getting larger.”
But then Mr. Lilly said he began losing balance. “I was finding it difficult to walk. I went back and that’s when they kept me and told me that I had an infection. I was in Mount Sinai. They cut a couple of toes off, to [stop] the infection from creeping up. Their claim was, ‘We think we are going to have to cut further because we don’t want the infection to get further up the leg.”

Then Mr. Lilly said medics returned and said that they would have to take his left foot.

"The Southeast Queens Scoop
and Our Affiliated News Blogs
Recommits To Helping Stop
Existential Threats Like
Trump And MAGA"

By Kamau Austin, Publisher Of The Southeast Queens Scoop, Juneteenth 6-19-2024

Today The Southeast Queens Scoop passed over 1.5 million visits.
  Collectively our flagship site and sister publications have surpassed well over 2.6 million.

However we take most pride in showcasing the positive contributions of over 4,100 Black businesses, community organizations, and cultural institutions.  And also getting 6 million views for our clients on search engines.

While we enjoy doing stories to spotlight the positive things in our community we also see a very forbidding future that threatens the survival of our people and really the world at large.  We see the rise of extreme right wing conservative forces looking to marginalize the gains and possible forward mobility of Black people.

We see Donald Trump and MAGA republications as the movement and destructive force threatening our existence as we know it.  However, Trump and MAGA are trying to spread propaganda to pretend to be interested helping the Black community.  But not on our watch!!!
