The Historic Allen AME Church
Announces New Progressive Pastor
To Succeed The Flake Legacy

By Kamau Austin, Co-publisher, The Southeast Queens Scoop

After a high energy service three (3) weeks ago culminating the Flake Legacy worship service, as a memorial for stewardship of Doctors Floyd and Elaine Flake, Allen A.M.E. Cathedral, recently announced their highly anticipated choice for new Pastor: Rev. Stephen A. Green.  Allen A.M.E. has been a pillar of community progress for many decades under the former Pastors Floyd and Elaine Flake's leadership.

Digital Flyer To Commemorate Flake Legacy Service    

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!!!

Devoted Mom Motivates Her
Son To Face His Fears And
FLY HIGH

Exclusive Article And Interview by
Kamau Austin with
William Inlaw and Tanika Inlaw-Chambers

16-year old William Inlaw's dreams are literally taking flight.  He is driven to soar high in his life's pursuits. For William losing altitude in his aspirational pursuits isn't an option.

Much of William's inspiration comes from his mom Tanika Inlaw-Chambers, who has challenged him to achieve lofty heights.  She has helped motivate him to ultimately face his fears - so the skies are the limit in his life now!  This has inspired the young man to propel himself towards his inflight goals of: becoming a licensed airplane pilot this Summer.

It has been reported that up to 40% of Americans have a fear of flying.  It is therefore, exceptional that young William Inlaw, not only has overcome the natural anxiety many people have of flying, but has gone a step further to pilot himself to actually embrace flying a plane. 

William's aspirations aren't just elevating him beyond his personal anxieties about flying but he is hovering above a backdrop of the rarity of Blacks in aviation.  According to the Chicago Times, and other reputable media sources, there are reportedly only 2.2% to 3.5% of Black pilots in the US.

Obviously, it would be a good thing for Blacks to have more representation in the aviation industry in general - and therefore a good thing to help see him succeed.  William and his mom Tanika, are looking to have him reach - the rare achievement of a Black teenager becoming a licensed airplane pilot.


Before you see the exclusive interview with William and his mother Tanika, we want to point a couple of things out.  The ambitious teenager and his mom are looking for other visionary people in our community and world to help them reach his piloting goals.  They are organizing an online crowdfunding venture and also a fundraising event with great incentives.

If you'd like to support William Inlaw, in his aspirational efforts to gain his pilot's license then you can make a donation or RSVP to attend his Special Take Wing fundraising event.

Business Solutions to
Your Problem

(And the Answer To Your Prayers)

By Gary L. Smith

Are you working twenty-five hours a day, eight days a week? You rarely see your family, and when you do make time for your daughter’s dance recital or happy hour with your buds, you’re not there. Not really. You’re thinking about the latest problem and how you’re going to fix it.

Every second of your waking life is spent trying to figure out how to hang on to this fledgling business of yours. You’re busy wearing all your many hats, worrying about making payroll and if Social Security will be enough to keep you in ramen noodles when you retire. 

Who the hell has time to go for the dream when you barely have the time or the money to eat? Can you even remember the dream? Let me refresh your memory. You want the freedom to live, work and express yourself as you choose. You want the power to influence the marketplace, your culture, your community.
