Retired Farmington attorney co-authors civil rights icon’s memoir

first_imgAs a young man, retired Farmington attorney John Obee traveled to Mississippi to teach, a move that set him on the path to his most recent achievement: co-authoring the memoir of noted civil rights icon Brenda Travis.John Obee spoke on June 27 to the Farmington-Farmington Hills Breakfast Optimist Club.Obee talked about Mississippi’s Exiled Daughter, released this month, during the June 27 Farmington-Farmington Hills Breakfast Optimist Club meeting held at John Cowley & Sons in downtown Farmington. He explained that his teacher career was cut short when he arrived to find the school had burned to the ground.“Instead, I worked on voter rights and registration, walking through the backwoods and registering people to vote and teaching them how to vote,” he said.His crowning accomplishment: teaching an elderly woman who had never learned to read or write how to make an “X”. “She was given an opportunity for the first time in her life to vote.”Obee said he was involved in civil rights during his entire career, handling many housing discrimination cases and specializing in hate crimes. He met Travis in 2012; the idea of sharing her memoir emerged about a year later.Among civil rights workers, Travis’ story is well-known. Born in 1945 on a Mississippi plantation, she never knew her father, who had been ordered to get his wife back out into the fields when she was close to delivering their daughter.Instead, the couple fled Macomb, Mississippi, and her father disappeared. “His life was in danger, because he stood up to a white man,” Obee explained. “This is a story about a father who was exiled. She didn’t find her father until she was in her 30s.”Travis was deeply affected by the lynching of 14-year-old Emmett Till, who was brutally murdered after a white woman alleged that he flirted with her. Years later, the woman recanted her story.Though she was just 10 years old, Obee said, Travis vowed to make life better for herself and her parents. Six years later, she was jailed for the first time, after attempting to integrate a bus station that had separate ticket lines for black and white passengers. When she returned to her high school after 30 days in jail, she was expelled.The front cover of the book shows her leading a march of 100 students, who were jailed for protesting her expulsion.Travis will talk about that experience and more in Mississippi’s Exiled Daughter during a presentation held at 6 p.m. on September 25, at the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History, 315 East Warren Ave. in Detroit. Learn more about the book at newsouthbooks.com.

Near-field propagation and scattering methods compute raw radar returns from target objects while considering multi-path interactions from ground reflections and other structures. It enables OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers to virtually test and refine sensors earlier in the design process, reducing the overhead required to build prototypes and improving installed performance. This talk will discuss how a scene is defined, the scattering phenomena that are accounted for, and the types of results available through the WaveFarer simulation tool.Click here to view Remcom’s Product Information cards for EuMW 2019.Click here to view more highlights from EuMW 2019.last_img read more

Rugby: Criticisms Trail League Resumption (AUDIO)

first_imgAssistant coach of Nigeria Police Rugby Football Club Abubakar Tahiru has criticised the standard of officiating and lack of structure in the South West Rugby League following his side’s narrow 8-7 victory over Cowrie FC at the main bowl of the National Stadium, Lagos on Saturday. Tahiru’s criticism of the referee’s performance stemmed from the decision to chalk off a try scored by his side after the referee had initially deemed the try legitimate.The referee’s decision which was instigated by outside interference, left Tahiru incensed and led to a lengthy standoff with Police RFC threatening to abandon the match if the try stayed overruled.The try was eventually given after a journalist’s video footage was used to analyse the event with Police RFC holding on to secure a narrow victory.That incident Tahiru believes, showed up the incompetence of the league’s referees and he says referees must update their knowledge of the laws of the game.“The officiating, they need to put more encouragement,” Tahiru said after his side’s narrow victory.“Maybe they should go for a kind of referee course that will give them more enlightenment because with what I saw today, for them to stop the game for more than 30 minutes, arguing [against] a try which they know that this is a try. Download Audio“For someone to just make a decision from outside after the ref might have awarded a try then he only comes to cancel the try because he has asked the third judge and the third judge has made a decision that this is a try then he raised his hand and say this is a try then later come from somewhere and cancel the try, it is not encouraging,” he added.Tahiru said his team only agreed to continue with the match because of the referee’s decision to overrule himself and maintain his original decision.“We should give glory to God for them to have [upturned] the decision,” he said. “I don’t think we would have continued that match because I would have [stood] on my ground standing as the assistant coach of Nigeria police today. I’m very happy that I won the victory.”Download AudioThe assistant coach who took charge in the absence of his principal also had strong words for the organisers of the league criticising the parlous state of the league’s finances which he said left players and teams to fend for themselves with little or no help from organisers the Nigeria Rugby Football Federation (NRFF) and corporate bodies.“The organisation, for now, it is not encouraging, I can’t hide it,” Tahiru said.“With the way everything is going we are only playing rugby with our raw body, nothing is given. We are all playing with our sweats, doing training on our own. No encouragement from anywhere no companies sponsoring anything.“Some of [my players] had injuries, there is nothing inside my first aid box. From our efforts, we source from hand to hand to make sure we come out and play because of the love of the game.Download Audio“Nobody is encouraging us, we hope for sponsors to help Nigeria police, assist us for further upcoming games,” he said.League games resumed around the country after an extended break due to the national team’s participation in the just concluded West Africa Rugby Series Championship in Ghana, which involved many league players.South Western League Results KC Old Boys RFC 15 vs 17 Gozar RFCPolice RFC 8 vs 7 Cowrie RFC Northern Rugby LeagueKano Police RFC 45 vs 0 Plateau Bulls RFCBarewa RFC 10 vs 0 Sabon Gari RFCRelatedRUGBY: Lagos Rugby Union League to Kicks Off SaturdayApril 13, 2019In “Rugby”Rugby: NRFF Announces 2020 CalenderFebruary 9, 2020In “Rugby”Barewa Rugby Club Battle Cowrie Rugby Club in the Nigerian Rugby Union League FinalDecember 15, 2018In “Events”last_img read more
