  • Local publisher announces bid for City CouncilLocal publisher announces bid for City Council

    by Mary Campagna About 50 people gathered at Roanoke’s Higher Education Center Tuesday to support Democrat Robert Jeffrey Jr.’s intended run for Roanoke City Council next May. Delegate-Elect to the 12th District of Virginia’s House of Delegates, Chris Hurst, introduced his long-time friend with a reference to the recent “blue wave” of leaders who espouse liberal and progressive values; those who will make Virginia more inclusive and diverse. Jeffrey, 48, CEO and publisher of ColorsVA Magazine, was born in Lynchburg, Virginia, but reared in Roanoke. He attended William Fleming High School and later earned his degrees in business and marketing from Hampton University before moving to Seattle, Washington. Jeffrey returned to the area five years ago, desiring to follow in his mother and father’s footsteps. His mother, Evangeline Jeffrey, is a former Roanoke NAACP president and has been a life-long social activist. “My mother raised me to be an advocate for change,” Jeffrey told his supporters. “And my father, a minister, taught me the meaning of social justice.” When a reporter asked how the candidate would educate young Roanoke leaders from out of town about the racial and cultural history of the city, he told a haunting story about his childhood here. “My mother and I came home to an empty house one evening when I was a boy,” Jeffrey said. “The door was open. Our home had been broken into. The N-word was painted and smeared all over our walls and our valuables had been taken. That’s when I learned, firsthand, about the dark side of Roanoke’s history.”Jeffrey recalled that his mother refused to leave the house that night. She taught him to face his demons to make things better. He plans to share personal stories like this to inform and educate others who may lack understanding about social injustice in Roanoke; to begin dialogue. “For many years I’ve promoted my belief that we can celebrate our differences,” Jeffrey said, echoing his words in the Publisher’s Note of ColorsVA: “I started ColorsVA magazine because I truly believe that ALL people can live together in harmony and if we understand each other’s differences, we can understand the great commonalities that we share.” Jeffrey was asked if he supported Mayor Sherman Lea’s creative Roanoke’s Barbershop Initiative, to which Jeffrey responded that he “likes the idea because it’s a new kind of communication.” “Everyone knows that barber shops are African Americans’ country clubs,” he said humorously. According to Jeffrey, Roanoke’s unique challenges include the promotion of small businesses, focus on the growing opioid epidemic, promoting affordable, quality healthcare for all, protection of the environment and addressing the issue of gun violence. He hopes to bring diverse neighborhoods together in an effort to evoke real change. “We need sensible gun policies that insure community safety,” Jeffrey said. “These are complex issues and my mission is to address them across all racial and gender lines.” Anyone wishing to support Robert Jeffrey’s campaign for a seat on Roanoke City Council may visit his website at: www.robertjeffreyforroanoke.com

  • Community, fans get involved in CIAA title gameCommunity, fans get involved in CIAA title game

    In Salem Stadium, the Stars & Stripes are unfurled before Fayetteville State met Virginia State in the CIAA Championship Game. A crowd of 3,766 was on hand for the game.  by Lut Williams Special to the Roanoke Tribune Salem Stadium hosted its second Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA) football championship Saturday and it was obvious the league had much longer to plan this one. This year’s championship game, pitting the undefeated North Division champion Virginia State University Trojans vs. the South Division champ Fayetteville State University Broncos on Veterans Day weekend, was the first of a three-year deal the conference inked after last year’s game was brought to the area in a last-minute decision. The league moved a host of championship events out of North Carolina last year based on its opposition to the controversial HB2 law, better known as the ‘Bathroom Bill.’ Several months of planning resulted in a host of festivities and activities in the area before and during the game for both teams, their coaches and fans. All the events were part of the #CIAASupports Initiative, an ongoing demonstration of the conference’s commitment to community service. CIAA sponsor Nationwide brought its Arcade Zone truck which featured several full size TV screens for fans to view before Saturday’s big game. It included Friday morning visits by Fayetteville State head coach Richard Hayes and his team as well as Virginia State head coach Reggie Barlow and his squad to the South Salem and George Washington Carver Elementary schools where they spoke to students about the importance of staying in school, making good choices and life as a student-athlete. CIAA Commissioner Jacqie McWilliams was on hand at the Salem Civic Center Friday morning for ‘Education Day’ where the conference entertained over 280 Roanoke County high school students and provided information and answered questions about the 12 colleges in the conference. “We are just so happy with the way things have gone since deciding to come to this area,” said McWilliams. “We could not have asked for a better environment or host for our events.” Members of Virginia State’s Drumline perform during pre-game activities in the Salem Stadium parking lot before Saturday’s CIAA Championship Game. Hours prior to Saturday’s 4:30 p.m. kickoff, the parking lot at the stadium was buzzing with a host of pre-game activities. A stage served as the hub of events and engaged fans in contests and games. Both school’s put on drumline and cheerleader demonstrations while the conference along with sponsors Coca-Cola, Nationwide, Food Lion and Toyota had displays that featured interactive experiences and giveaways. Vendors sold their wares and tailgaters from both teams set up tents and brought out an assortment of food for their partisans. Roanoke Mayor Sherman Lea, who played football at Virginia Union University, was one of 12 CIAA “legends” honored during the game. It was part of the league’s celebration of 125 years of black college football which began when conference members Livingstone College and Biddle College (now Johnson C. Smith University) played the first HBCU football game in 1892. Senior Associate Commissioner Marcus Clark (l.) poses with Commissioner Jacqie McWilliams  (r.) at pre-game festivities before Saturday’s CIAA Championship Football game at Salem Stadium. And this year’s game did not disappoint. Before an announced crowd of just under 4,000, the Trojans jumped on the Broncos early, building a 21-0 lead in the first quarter and beat back a third-quarter FSU surge to come away with a 42-19 victory. VSU senior running back Trenton Cannon, the league’s offensive player of the year, was the MVP of the game. He scored on a 10-yard run to open the scoring in the first quarter and had 73- and 79-yard runs in the second half as the Trojans put the game away. The football title game is the second conference championship held in the area this fall. The league’s Cross Country championship was held at Salem’s Green Hill Park last month. The CIAA Softball championship is scheduled for Moyer Park in Salem from April 30 to May 2, 2018.

  • Glenvar graduate Jason Ford working towards a life of selfless serviceGlenvar graduate Jason Ford working towards a life of selfless service

    Jason Ford with his mother (Susan Ford) and father (Kenny Ford). by Shawn Nowlin Some people know what they want to do in life by the time they reach high school. One such individual is Jason Ford. As a senior at Glenvar High School, he was regularly asked what was he going to do after graduation. “I’ve always wanted to join the military since I was a little kid,” he said. Kenny Ford, Jason’s father, was a local police officer for 31 years. His mother, Susan Ford, has worked at Wells Fargo for nearly three decades. “My parents have always supported me. I played football for four years and wrestled for two years at Glenvar, and they were always there,” Jason added. He chose the Army over the other military branches mainly because that’s where several of his family members served. His grandfather and two uncles were in the Army and he remembers how they always talked about their experiences and how much it helped them later in life. “The Army also had a job that interested me, and that was a huge plus,” said Jason who is a Delta Calvary Scout with the Virginia Army National Guard. In his position he is responsible for being the eyes and ears of the commander. “The Army has taught me so many things. Most importantly, how selfless sacrifice can make a difference in the world.” The young soldier is a decendent of a family of military veterans. He once was deployed to Qatar (9/2015 to 7/2016) for Operation Enduring Freedom Spartan Shield and would go to Virginia Beach for drills once a month. But October 2017 is a month that Jason Ford will never forget. He, along with several other reserve guards, went to St. Thomas Virgin Islands for two weeks to hand out relief supplies to locals affected by Hurricane Irma when about 12 inches of rain fell on Saint Thomas causing widespread damage. Saint John, the smallest of three main US Virgin Islands with under 4,500 residents, was also devastated by the hurricane. “It was an eye-opening experience,” he said. “Being up that close put a lot of things in perspective.” The Virgin Islands wasn’t the first time Jason traveled somewhere to help those in need. “My dad, my brother and I went to Houston in September for a week to supplies that we collected from Glenvar High School, several churches and an elementary school in Radford.” A typical day for Jason consists of working with his brother and dad on their own family construction business, “K&J Properties,” that has been around for about 20 years. “We specialize in plumbing and electronics, but (he added) also have commercial and residential building licenses. “Hat off” to this admirable Glenvar grad and his family of caring members and entrepreneurs!

  • Civil Rights Leader Ruby Sales to speakCivil Rights Leader Ruby Sales to speak

    Ruby Sales CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA – Civil rights leader Ruby Sales will visit Charlottesville at the end of November to participate in a public conversation on social justice and spirituality hosted by Virginia Foundation for the Humanities (VFH). The event, “Every One of Us: A Conversation with Ruby Sales on Race, Spirituality, and Public Life,” will take place on Wednesday, Nov. 29, from 6:00-7:30 p.m. at the Jefferson School African American Heritage Center, 233 4th St. NW in Charlottesville.  This conversation between Sales and Charles Marsh, professor of religious studies and director of the Project on Lived Theology at the University of Virginia, will engage Charlottesville community members on critical issues of race, spirituality, and public life. Justin Reid, director of African American Programs at VFH, will serve as moderator. This free, community event has been made possible by funding from the Office of the Executive Vice President & Provost at the University of Virginia. Ruby Sales is a nationally recognized civil rights leader and public theologian who brings the wealth of African American spiritual traditions to her theological innovation and social activism. As a teenager in 1965, she participated in the Selma to Montgomery marches led by the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.  Later that year, activist Jonathan Daniels, a white seminarian and recent VMI graduate, died while shielding Sales from gunfire. As founder and executive director of the Georgia-based SpiritHouse Project, Sales builds authentic communities to advocate for racial, economic, and social justice.  Her contributions as a freedom fighter are featured in the Smithsonian’s new National Museum of African American History and Culture. While in Charlottesville, Sales will also meet with local community leaders and lead a master class for UVA undergraduates. In a statement about the program’s selection by the Office of the Executive Vice President & Provost, vice president for academic affairs Archie Holmes said, “We sought creative programming, in partnership with the Charlottesville area community, that uproots the conscious and unconscious biases and misbeliefs that lead to racial tension. VFH’s event featuring Ruby Sales will do this in a unique and challenging way.” Charles Marsh will speak from direct experience as a Christian raised in the heart of the segregated South. He is a leading thinker on the relationship between politics and religious life and the author of several books on the civil rights movement and Christian theology, including his most recent Strange Glory: A Life of Dietrich Bonhoeffer. Moderator Justin Reid directs African American Programs at VFH, where he advances a complex and nuanced telling of African American history through the development of educational resources, including a database of historic sites. Matthew Gibson, VFH executive director, described the event as “an opportunity to reflect on the legacy of social, political, and religious movements in the South, as we work towards a more inclusive and just society through deepened understanding of the human experience. Ruby Sales embodies the weaving together of humanistic thought and civic engagement that VFH seeks to inspire.” Registration for this free event is encouraged but not required.  For more information and to register, visit: VirginiaHumanities.org/events/ruby-sales/ In addition to a grant from the Office of the Executive Vice President & Provost at the University of Virginia, support for this free event has been provided by the Black Student Alliance at UVA, the Carter G. Woodson Institute for African-American and African Studies at UVA, the Jefferson School African American Heritage Center, the Office of the Vice President and Chief Officer for Diversity and Equity at UVA, and the Project on Lived Theology at UVA. In early 2018, VFH will host “upstander” training led by the Virginia Center for Inclusive Communities for students to learn about addressing racial biases, also funded by the Office of the Executive Vice President & Provost at UVA. About VFH: The mission of Virginia Foundation for the Humanities is to connect people and ideas to explore the human experience and inspire cultural engagement. VFH reaches an estimated annual audience of 23 million through community programs, digital initiatives, grants and fellowships, radio programs, and the Virginia Center for the Book.
