Ketanji Onyika Brown Jackson, Associate Justice-Designate of the United States Supreme Court 2022 

Congratulations Judge Ketanji Onyika Brown Jackson, associate justice-designate of the United  States Supreme Court by Op-Ed Author Dr. Charles L. Singleton. Yes, “Everything has its own  genesis.” Following the U. S. Senate confirmation, Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson’s historical nomination  in 2022 to the U. S. Supreme Court is monumentally important and timely as we continue living in America. The White House, WH. Gov at: Ketanji Brown Jackson to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court |  The White House The Supreme Court cases, October term 2022-2023 are as follows: https://ballotpedia.org/Supreme Court cases, October term 2022-2023 

Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, as you serve on the U. S. Supreme Court, please remember this story, “The Parable of the Pencil.” The Pencil Maker took the pencil aside, just before putting the pencil into the  box. "There are 5 things you need to know," he told the pencil, "Before I send you out into the world.  Always remember them and never forget, and you will become the best pencil you can be." 1. “You will be able to do many great things, but only if you allow yourself to be held in someone's hand.” 2. “You will experience a painful sharpening from time to time, but you'll need it to become a better pencil.” 3. “You will be able to correct any mistakes you might make.” 4. “The most important part of you will always be what's inside.” 5. “On every surface you are used on, you must leave your mark. No matter what the condition you must continue to write.” The pencil understood and promised to remember, and went into the box with purpose in its heart. --- Go-your-own-way.

Ketanji Brown Jackson's Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated (AKA) sorority sister Aliyah Johnson is optimistic about her upcoming chiropractic career, and the U. S. Supreme Court's fair and timely decisions concerning "We the people of the United States of America." The healthy knowledge that Aliyah demonstrates and explains in her YouTube video is judgmentally sound, without political bias.

Hopefully, Supreme Court Judge Kentanji Brown Jackson's judicial deliberations and decisions will make all Americans feel better as we live daily. ---The Johnson Family Journal Newsletter, Volume 1, Issue 4, March 1, 2022.

New York - Regina Taylor, two-time NAACP Image Award winning actress, playwright and activist, shines in role of Marian Shields Robinson, Michelle Obama’s mother, in the new series THE FIRST LADY, which airs on SHOWTIME Sundays at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

Michelle Obama has always credited her mother as being an inspirational role model,” Taylor said. “Her mother and father were absolute pillars of strength, encouraging her to pursue her dreams, let no one deter her and to not get in her own way.

Long Island African-American Chamber Launches Free Counseling to Help LI, NYC Companies Qualify for Funding
LIAACC President Phil Andrews


Many small businesses owned by African-Americans and companies in general face difficulties getting  loans, despite strong sales. They may face paperwork problems, insufficient accounts, lack of data, liens, unpaid debts or have owners with credit trouble. As a result, a good company may do badly when it comes to getting financing even from a willing lender. Now there’s a new source of help in overcoming these obstacles for minority-owned and other businesses seeking funding.


The Long Island African-American Chamber of Commerce (LIAACC) has used a portion of a grant to help small business owners to hire TMI & Partners, led by Alvin Hartley, to provide free counseling and assistance to African-American owned and other businesses in Nassau, Suffolk, Queens and Brooklyn to obtain funding

The idea is to give them the help they need to resolve issues and bridge the funding gap that too often stands between small businesses and the funds they need to launch, survive and grow.
