The Rolling Chairs In Atlantic City, NJ ☆In Honor Of Black History Month☆

Real African American Heroes

Atlantic City's First Rolling Chairs

My Parents and I, used to go to Atlantic City all the time when I was young, (1950's and 60's). I had Cousins who lived there.

My Cousin Roy and I used to ride on the rolling chairs together every time I visited. (The more modern ones that Roy and I used to ride on were open in the front and on the sides).

Roy was one of the nicest young people I've ever met. He was grown up when he was 11. Roy didn't fight with a girl the way most boys did.

Everyone on the boardwalk knew and loved, my Cousin Roy, he used to run errands for them all.

We had such a good time on the rolling chairs and I remember the middle aged African American Men who used to push them from one end of the Boardwalk to the other! African-American Workers Crucial To Atlantic City's Rise by Kathleen O'Brien/The Star-Ledger February 24 2012

The Atlantic City Boardwalk was so beautiful back then! I remember the Steel Pier And Salt Water Taffy. The Planters Peanut Store, Mr. Peanut walking around, The pigeons who would eat peanuts out of your hand, Ripley's little museum on the Steel Pier, The Diving Horse, cotton candy, candy apples, The salt water taffy store and so much more. But riding on the rolling chairs with my Cousin Roy was the best!

These are my memories of Atlantic City.

Mountaintop removal (MTR) coal mining is one of America’s worst environmental crimes!

Every day, across Appalachia, the coal industry literally blows the tops off the mountains: clear-cutting forests, wiping out natural habitats and poisoning rivers and drinking water. Not only are these mountains lost forever, but the heritage and the health of families across the region are being sacrificed. For a mere 7 percent of the nation’s coal, the tradeoff does not add up!

Trail of Tears

Oglala Lakota College
From its inception in 1971, our college’s mission has been to provide the educational credentials to our students so that they could compete for employment opportunities on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation.

As a result of having a college on the reservation; Lakota people are now employed in teaching, nursing, human services, business, computer, and vocational educational positions on the Pine Ridge reservation.

In 1980 the Supreme Court ruled upon the longest running court case in US History, the United States vs Sioux Nation. The court determined that the terms of the 1868 Fort Laramie Treaty had been violated when the Sioux were resettled onto P.O.W. camps, and 7 million acres of their land were opened up to prospectors and homesteaders. These camps are now called “reservations”.

The grim statistics on Native Reservations today are the equivalent to that of a 3rd world country, revealing the legacy of colonization and treaty violations. Unemployment on the Reservation fluctuates between 80-90%. Many are homeless, and those with homes are packed into rotting buildings with up to 5 families. More than 90% of the population lives below the federal poverty line. Make A Difference

Good Samaritan Hunger Relief Tax Incentive Extension Act of 2009
A bill to amend the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 to permanently extend and expand the charitable deduction for contributions of food inventory.

Fighting Hunger Is A Team Effort!
The Good Samaritan Hunger Relief Tax Incentive Act
Feeding America’s nationwide network provides food to 25 million people every year, and strong U.S. government programs are also vital to meet the nutritional needs of low-income Americans. The business sector, including farmers, food manufacturers, wholesalers, retailers, and others, also plays an instrumental role in battling hunger. By donating food and transportation and promoting volunteerism, businesses of all sizes help put food on the tables of families in need. While businesses already make substantial contributions to fight hunger,improved public policies, particularly passage of the Good Samaritan Hunger Relief Tax Incentives Act, will promote even greater business participation in this effort.
