In Memoriam: Giving Thanks For The Soulful Work & Spirit Of Dr. Charles L. Singleton
 "Honoring The Life And Media Contributions OF
Dr. Charles L. Singleton"

Reflections by Publishers Kamau and nZinga Austin, with tributes also by Tolson Banner and JV Howard, Op-Ed Contributors to the Black News Scoop, and Scoop News Blogs.

Get An Overview With Our Intro Tribute Video Below...


Dr. Charles L. Singleton, was a great inspiring and insightful person and contributor to many things.  He was a professional athlete, educational consultant, Purple Heart Awardee, creative and insightful writerprogressive authorFundraiser for Elizabeth City College and HBCU causes.  He was of course a mentor and inspirational presence for many people and organizations.

We, at the Scoop Publications, have been honored to have shared ideas, been a vehicle for his writing genius, and helped him raise (the last he related to me) over $75,000 for charitable causes.  I can sense that Ancestor Singleton's, soulful presence is still with us.  I feel Doc. Singleton, as we would affectionately refer to him, would want us to continue to be a truthful resource showcasing the striving for Black economic, business, and social empowerment. 

Dr. Charles L. Singleton, was one of the greatest supporters of AMS Digital's Scoop News Blogs.  It is hard to describe the awesome contribution Dr. Singleton made to our publication.  We at AMS Digital and Scoop Publications extend our deepest condolences to Dr. Singleton's family...

For me, Kamau Austin, Publisher of AMS Digital and Scoop News blogs, Dr. Charles Singleton or Chuck Singleton as he called himself, was a priceless mentor, coach, content contributor, Op-Ed writer, and supporter. His involvement will be greatly missed however I can feel the presence of Ancestor Chuck Singleton urging us at the Scoop news blogs to continue and don't quit our editorial mission
.

Doc. Singleton was not only into serious research and study but he also blessed us with topics as diverse as the Black hair care industryhistoric Black womenaging, outstanding Black fishermengun violenceBlack historyCOVID-19 and even hip hop.  These are just a small sample of the topics he ventured into for our publications.

To see an overview of his dozens of articles click on the following links on the Black News Scoop and the Southeast Queens Scoop.  My daughter nZinga Austin, an award winning community media editor, animator, singer, and advocate for our people on the autism spectrum shares her reflections about Dr. Singleton below.

nZinga Austin - Dr. Singleton was a good man that supported our scoop publications.  He started writing in our flagship publication the SoutheastQueensScoop.com and later was more featured in his favorite the Black News Scoop.

He was a very dedicated contributor and supporter who helped us quite a lot.  He also wrote a lot about his family. My favorite articles from him is when he wrote books for black education. He was also a promising Football player.

He had a doctor's degree in education. He wrote books for children so their parents can help their children be successful.

He was also a teacher in Southeast Queens, New York. I heard he also taught schools in Georgia, South Carolina, and Brooklyn, New York.

He believed you should teach children so they can keep the world going forward. He was also into teaching about aging and fitness. He also helped older people to exercise.  Next we share the the memories of our Op-Ed Contributor JV Howard.

JV Howard - It is often hard to find the right words at a time like this but it was words that Dr. Singleton use to enlighten, inform, inculcate, and motivate his audience across a myriad of issues. He implored us to read between the lines of the pages of life for clarity, for understanding, and for growth.

He was a informative writer with his pen and an educator at heart. Dr. Singleton has certainly left the universe in a better place than the way he found it. May he Rest in Peace.  Another of our Op-Ed Contributors Tolson Banner shares his memories of Dr. Charles L. Singleton.

Tolson Banner - I never met Dr.Singleton face to face.  I met him through the cosmic connection of words: a word to word meeting - if you will.

I started reading his prolific/insightful column and I became transfixed each time I met him in words.  His writings always nudged me to readjust my aperture - always giving me additional clarity for my eyesight!

Usually our mourning on a loss loved one focuses on us. Dr.Singleton, taught me to readjust my aperture always - in this readjustment there is no loss instead another ancestor on the other side to watch over and guide us on our spiritual journey in this life.

Lorna D. Cheatham, is the founder and CEO of Clera’s Creative Gifts, a Black-owned gift-wrapping paper and gift bag brand that is known for its unique Afrocentric-themed designs. A certified Women’s Business Enterprise, Lorna started her Detroit-based company in 2018 with the goal to bring jobs back to her city for disadvantaged, abused women of color and returning citizens.

Lorna, who is originally from Nashville, Tennessee, was one of twelve siblings in her family. She comments, “Birthdays was always a special time for her family, although they didn’t receive a lot; they cherished what they got.”

At the tender young age of nine, her mother, Clera, was unfortunately taken away. Luckily, they were left with many of her precious memories, which is why she decided to name her company after her mother; it was her way of keeping her memory alive.

Left to Right: Phil Andrews, President of the Long Island African American Chamber of Commerce, Inc./Founding President of the African American Small Business Foundation, Inc. and Hempstead Town Deputy Supervisor Dorothy L. Goosby Presenting Certificate Proclaiming MED Week on Long Island at Hempstead Town Hall

The Inaugural launch of Minority Enterprise was held at Hempstead Town Hall hosted by the Long Island African American Chamber of Commerce, Inc. and the African American Small Business Foundation, Inc.

Phil Andrews, President of the Long Island African American Chamber Commerce, Inc. stated in Newsday “The enterprise development week aims to increase awareness about the Small Business Development Centers, Service Corps of Retired Executives, Hofstra’s Ascend Long Island and other programs that help people turn their ideas into companies.” 

“We want to give minority entrepreneurs access to information, tools and resources to grow their business,” he told about 60 people who attended the enterprise event at Hempstead Town Hall.” Phil Andrews  

The 400-member chamber has been selected for the U.S. Small Business Administration’s Community Navigator Program as a spoke, a 100 million outreach effort to firm that are in underserved communities and have been adversely impacted by the Covid-19 crises.  A theme of MED Week was that Minority entrepreneurs can benefit from increased commitment of the federal and state governments to award contracts to them, but only if they first have a strong, well-organized operation, officials said at the conference.  The ultimate goal for MED Week is to expand MED Week into MED Month in 2023.
