Senator James Sanders Jr. Makes Major Legislative Announcement at 55th Annual Commemoration of Malcolm X

Jamaica/Southeast Queens -- Senator James Sanders Jr. (D-Rochdale Village, Far Rockaway) made a major legislative announcement during his remarks at the 55th Annual Commemoration of Malcolm X recently at the Shabazz Center in Harlem.

Sanders detailed state action he is proposing related to the reopening of the investigation into the death of Malcolm X. These steps will make positive strides in improving the criminal justice system and further preserving the legacy of the Muslim minister and human rights leader.

Malcolm X was a great leader, a great human being, who championed truth, justice and freedom for everyone,” Sanders said.  “I applaud Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. for reopening the investigation into the death of Malcolm X.”

Senator Sanders will be introducing two bills to promote truth and justice for unsolved civil rights crimes. Both of these bills are modeled on current federal law.

The Purdue Boilermakers Frederick S. Cooper III Started Visionary Engineering Legacy  Still Lives In The USA And Abroad With NSBE

Celebrating Black History by Dr. Charles L. Singleton

Chicago’s visionary scholar-athlete Fred Cooper, academically and athletically, was successful during his collegiate days at Purdue University from 1970 until 1974.  As an undergraduate, the young and studious Fred Cooper, a four-year football scholarship recipient made the very best of his college experience.  He respectfully and respectively exceeded beyond all expectations.

Looking back in time, Cooper’s keen “attention to detail,” including, an impactful athletic performance, and his extraordinary vision helped to jump-start an amazing engineering accomplishment to improve black engineering student recruitment numbers and retention rate.  During his keynote address at the Minority Engineering Program (MEP) and National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) 40th Year Celebration, on September 13, 2015, Fred Cooper stated that, “The problem we were trying to address back then was to help stop the 80% drop out rate of black engineering students at Purdue.

The way we approached it was to form a support group ourselves to help and support each other.  But we also wanted to be a recognized group on campus to have access to university resources.  And more importantly, we wanted Purdue to be committed to our success.”  

In 1971, the precursors, Fred Cooper and fellow student Edward E. “Big Ed” Barnette Jr (1949-1991), shared an “engineering social idea and a pressing need” for starting the Black Society of Engineers (BSE) with Dr. John C. Hancock, Purdue University’s Dean of Engineering.  And, after student conferencing with the dean, the prominent Dr. Arthur J. Bond (1939-2012) was assigned as BSE’s advisor.


During this time, he was the only African American faculty member on Purdue’s faculty. Progressively, several timely-motivated meetings and conversational discussions eventually created the Black Society of Engineers (BSE). The first president of the Black Society of Engineers (BSE) was Ed Barnette in the NSBE Photograph Below:

NYC Based Pastor Conrad Bennette Tillard Warns Blacks Against Voting For Billionaire Mike Bloomberg
"Bloomberg has a record now, so if we fall victim again, then the old adage is true, "fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me." Conrad Bennette Tillard

OP-ED By Pastor Conrad Bennette Tillard
Brooklyn, New York -- This is how Mike Bloomberg became Mayor of New York City in 2001, I was there, the first Black person on the radio to endorse and support him.  Black talk radio and the Black community made him in politics then, thus he is coming to us again now.

A playbook that he is attempting to dust off again. These folks in the media think they know more than they actually do.

They should have New York folks on to talk about New York stuff. Bloomberg is not a Republican, in fact he has always been a Democrat , he only become a Republican to run for Mayor in 2001. Secondly, why are these folks acting like Bloomberg, is this charismatic figure that will overwhelm the electorate. Showbusiness?

Bloomberg has the charisma of a back office accountant.
