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 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.

View Some Of The Supportive Reflections of Ancestor Dr. Charles L. Singleton On Scoop Articles In The Past

On JV Howard - "JV Howard's Beyond Humanities "Tipping Point" is a must-read composition in 2022, and for many more years to come. Absolutely, Mr. Howard, "U. S. politicians who rallied to stand up for Ukraine but laid down when called to protect our children." JV Howard's personal earthly concerns for saving human lives are very timely ideas with equal importance."

USA and Global Readers of AMS Digital Media, and Scoop Publications, Howard is strongly "Supporting an Independent Black Media Production That Challenges Stereotypes?" Therefore, in the inspirational words of Poet Sarah Caldwell, " Learn everything you can, anytime you can, from anyone you can, there will always come a time when you will be grateful you did." " Dr. Charles L. Singleton, June 5th 2022

On JV Howard - "Listen up, informed Global readers of Black News Scoop! Yes indeed, another informative historical story, an outstanding and timely article By JV Howard: "The Covid-19 Blues ... The Story of US." Absolutely, our legacy, our history, and our blues music since Jamestown, Virginia, August 20, 1619. "We Wear the Mask" of some 402 years, according to PAUL LAURENCE DUNBAR (1872-1906). Dunbar wrote, "We smile, but, O great Christ, our cries To thee from tortured souls arise. We SING, but oh the clay is vile Beneath our feet, and long the mile; But let the world dream otherwise, We wear the mask!" Dr. C. L. Singleton GeeChee Gumee HBCU.

On Kamau Austin - Mr. Austin. This amazing and informational article, "Is Supporting Black Business Economic Survival Going Forward in 2022," speaks to the declining economic financial dilemmas African Americans are facing today in 2022! Yes, I strongly agree, as a people, we need to invest daily in Black businesses, especially real-estate driven properties: land, farming, construction and technology, plus put money back into our communities. Urgently, we have to build generational income and wealth, instead of generational debt and burdensome poverty.

In the meantime, Your Tuesday essay is a must read! I am texting you ... Dr. George Fraser's YouTube video, "Black People are Heading Back into Slavery."

Also, Mr. Austin, I enjoyed reading Black News Scoop's article, "Africa And The World Mourns Anti-apartheid Hero Desmond Tutu" By Afrikan Correspondent Thandisizwe Mgudlwa.

Sincerely, Dr. Charles L. Singleton

On Kamau and nZinga Austin -  "Did The Justice System Fail Fred Harris, A 19-Year Old Black Youngster With Special Needs Brutally Murdered In A Texas Jail Cell?" In this amazing article about justice, co-authors, Kamau Austin and Nzinga Lonstein Austin, wrote a true story. Hopefully, we will continue to learn that human life is precious. --- Dr. Charles L. Singleton

On Kamau and nZinga Austin - "An amazing story, nZingas 3D! And, both of you are doing a great job telling it. Love the nZinga's artwork, songs, father-daughter interview, highlights..." Dr. Charles L. Singleton
