Provocative play exposes problems in Black male-female relationships
by Safiyyah P. Muhammad
Eugene Dillanados stage play Save the Last Dance for Me, brought to light the many problems that often plague
Black male-female relationships. The play debuted recently at the Gwendolyn Brooks College Preparatory School, 250 E. 111th
Street.
The sizzling extra marital affair between Dina Speight (LaSheda Wallace) and Perry Dupree (Eric Epps) thrives on
sex and shouting matches which often leaves them bitter. Neither character listens to the other, but both exhibit anger when
expressing their points of view. The play brought to bear the need for not only the black man to reconcile his anger issues but
the Black woman should explore what is disturbing her as well. The issue of interracial marriage was another critical issue that
showed up. By marrying outside the race, Dina felt it was the answer to heal disappointed relationships with Black men. Perrys
opinions about Dinas multi-ethnic marriage leaves her torn and on the defense about why she married outside of her race in the
first place.
The motivation behind the play is to bring men and women together, said Eugene Dillanado, executive producer of Save
the Last Dance for Me. In relationships, we got to work as a team. There are a lot of things that prevent us from doing that, but
Save the Last Dance for Me explores a lot of gaps that keep Black men and women from working in harmony. The salty, gritty,
discourse between Dina and Perry reveals Dinas mistrust and fear, which according to Dillando are all linked to an abandoned
childhood.
Race relations was another issue highlighted. Throughout the play, Perry pressured Dina to leave her white husband,
hoping that the murders of Trayvon Martin and Laquan McDonald and others would give Dina a reality check about the state of
race relations in this country.
Dillanado also pointed out the impact of childhood abandonment and how it weighs down a relationship. Perry discovered
that Dina's father wasnt there for her, which spoke to the issue of abandonment. Many women in our view carries this baggage
and it impacts their relationships with other men, he said.
Angelina Beck of Dolton stated that the play carried a lot of social issues affecting both the Black man and woman. The
play tapped on a lot of social issues that Black women and men often struggle with in relationships. It showed how women
sometime take on negative views of their partner, based on the relationship they had with their father. In this case, it wasnt
sexual abuse, but Dinas father was absent from the home, because he worked. Dina grew up feeling abandoned and in real life,
this causes mistrust.
Beck also added that the play depicted how the Black man is outspoken about racial oppression, yet he is powerless when
it comes to taking a stand to change those circumstances that oppress him.
Playwright and Publisher of the Black Pages, Eugene Dillanado chose an excellent topic to bring to his theater audience.
The play comes with lots of drama, sizzle, and passion. The performance is filled with good acting, which large audiences across
the country will appreciate. Director, Curtis Hugghis and Assistant Director, LaTosha Davis were recognized as key directors in
the production of Save the Last Dance for Me.
Interested parties looking to use the show as a fundraiser should call: Eugene Dillanado, 773-407-1470.

Shifting Scenes...
Who's Building Institutions? by C. Dwayne West / CEO MG Media

C an todays' blacks build relevant institutions? Are there too many internal demons lurking within that prohibit my generation
from having the vision and fortitude to dream and execute BIG?
Has the reality of integration spoiled the masses of this generation? Has the pain of the distant and recent past caused complacency
in the Negro race that they've lost their passion to build? Even if some of the things mentioned are true, then we must transform our thinking,
immediately! We cannot let anger, hate, disappointment, frustration, racism, and sadness, ruin our progress. We must turn those negatives into
progressive and positive actions.
Don't let these unattractive human emotions defeat US! We must NOT let our storied and historical past accomplishments go to waste.
Yes, black folks have been wronged! And the wrongs will continue as long as the Negro race persist to exist. There are evil people who practice
racism and bigotry everyday. It has been inherited from past generations. OK, we know the score! We always have! But we have to practice
some of the enemies' methods of survival. They know that wealth building and legacy institutions are the cure for the common cold. And black's
sickness is that we lack resources and open door opportunities that can change SOME of our current unhealthy conditions.
I mentioned Bill Gates and Warren Buffett in an article last week. Several people responded by asking why do I follow two uber rich
white guys? In my Works of Words I was listing an example of a conversation they had during a TV interview. Given the fact that they're uber rich
is all the reason why I would listen intently. Clearly, they know something that I don't. I wrote those readers back asking if they would feel more
comfortable if I followed the teachings of, respectfully, two homeless or uber poor people? Hoping they could advise me how to find my way out
of the ghetto?
Men like Gates and Buffett have built institutions. I wanna know what that feels like! I wanna have a clear vision on how my people can
focus on institution building. If we're to truly change the conditions of our communities' resource pool, then building institutions had better be our
main priority. Especially my generation. How many institutions have we constructed over the last 10 years?
I went to see I'm Not Your Negro, a new documentary playing at select theaters. It focused on the journey of James Baldwin. If you
call yourself a thought leader and you're trying to solve the continued problems of the Negro race, that's the smart film you should be planning to
see...In the film, Baldwin highlighted black institutions, and the roles they played in black survival during the 50', 60's, 70's and 80s. That's what
prompted these Works of Words. He was a deep and creative brother. But Baldwin altered his thinking after studying several complex men like
Malcolm, Martin, and Medger Evers. He admired these three intellects from afar. James finally realized that he had to be an institution builder--
and not just enjoy or relax in Paris, France, as an acclaimed and celebrated writer. So back to America he went to start building.
The only question that resides deep in my spirit is, what institutions has my generation of so-called innovators built? What monuments
have we erected to our names and images that will be added to those ancestral footnotes? I don't see any, yet. I hear some being discussed. I
witnessed some being actually worked on. But will any survive to the challenges that come with building monuments?
This call to action is to my generation and the generation to follow. Now is the time to think deeply about our legacy. What will (we) be
remembered for? Better yet, what institution will (we) have built to advance the fight for liberation, freedom and wealth creation?

Roseland Community Initiative winner of Hospital Charitable Services Award


The Roseland Community Initiative has been announced as the winner of the Hospital Charitable Services Award
for Programs of Excellence. The award is for programs that have demonstrated excellence in community impact, innovation,
collaboration, leading practices and transferability. Only ten winners were chosen from thousands of national applicants.
The award celebrates a landmark collaboration between The New Roseland Community Hospital and Mobile Care
Chicago to pair frequent flier asthma pediatric patients from The New RCH's Emergency Department with Mobile Care
Chicagos Asthma Van, transitioning children from ER dependence to preventative care conveniently located within blocks of
most families' homes. Since Mobile Care's Asthma Educators started coordinating with The New RCH two years ago, pediatric
asthma admittance has been cut by 58%. That represents about 300 children living a better life.
You cant quantify what this intervention meant to the children and families given access to free, on-going, and
convenient preventative care through this partnership, says New RCH President & CEO Tim Egan. The New Roseland
Community Hospital added this important initiative as part of our wider Strategic Plan, which emphasizes the best, most
innovative care for our patients. Were honored to share this award with Mobile Care Chicago, to have our collaboration
recognized nationally, and to bring greater levels of innovation to our community. The award ceremony will be held later in
February of 2017.
In other news, The New Roseland Community Hospital welcomes DonElla Bradford as the Executive Director of
The New RCH Foundation and the Manager of External Affairs. "DonElla brings a terrific blend of experience in healthcare
and philanthropy. She earned a Masters Degree in Business Administration from Roosevelt University and a Masters of
Communication from Governors State University. Additionally, this highly educated professional earned her Bachelor of Arts
in Sociology from Northern Illinois University," the BULLETIN learned.

Report: Nearly 65% of Chicago Families of Color 'Lack


the Savings to Sustain a Job Loss or Other Emergency'
A new report from the Corporation for Enterprise Development (CFED) reveals "a troubling racial wealth gap in Chicago." The Racial Wealth Divide in
Chicago finds that 65% of households of color are liquid asset poor, meaning they do not have enough savings to sustain themselves at the poverty level for just three
months if faced with a sudden job loss, medical emergency or other income disruption. That compares to 28% of White households, according to the report.
Additionally, the report finds that households of color in Chicago are three times more likely to be unemployed and six times more likely to live in poverty. The
greatest disparities are between White and Black households. The median income among Black households is $30,303, compared to $70,960 for White households,
$56,373 for Asian families and $41,188 for Latino households.
With the release of the report, CFEDs Racial Wealth Divide Initiative is joining with JPMorgan Chase & Co. and the Center for Public and Nonprofit Leadership
at Georgetown Universitys McCourt School of Public Policy to announce the launch of the second phase of the Building High Impact Nonprofits of Color project, which
will help strengthen the capacity of local nonprofits to expand economic opportunity in Chicago and across the country.
We will be working in Chicago to build the capacity of local nonprofits led by people of color serving people of color, as these organizations are on the frontlines
of addressing the most pressing needs of underserved Chicagoans, said Dedrick Asante-Muhammad, Director of the Racial Wealth Divide Initiative at CFED.
JPMorgan Chase provided financial support to CFED to develop the report and conduct trainings to equip more than 20 organizations to launch, expand or
improve wealth-building initiatives for communities of color nationwide.
CFEDs deep commitment to addressing racial wealth inequality is demonstrated by the quality of its work in this area. Progress requires a strong infrastructure
of local, trusted nonprofit leaders of color who have the resources to take on this difficult issue. It is a privilege to support both CFED and this cohort of incredible
organizations, said Naomi Camper, head of JPMorgan Chases Office of Nonprofit Engagement.
Eleven nonprofits were competitively selected in two citiesChicago and Baltimore to participate in the initial phase of the project. In Chicago, the selected
nonprofits include: the Chinese Mutual Aid Association, Gads Hill Center, Greater Auburn-Gresham Development Corporation, North Lawndale Employment
Network and the Spanish Coalition for Housing. These organizations join cohorts in Miami and New Orleans, the two cities that were part of the initial phase of the
project.
Some of the reports other key findings include:
* A third of Black households and 27% of Latino households in Chicago have zero net worth, compared with 15% of White households.
*The average value of Black-owned businesses is $47,246, compared to $571,419 for White-owned businesses.
*Rent is the largest expense for 62.9% of Black households in Chicago, 56.4% of Latino households, 48.3% of Asian households, and 41.6% of White households.

Dedicated Litehouse business owner



offers hope,vision to young people
Meet Eric "Rico" Nance, the driving force behind a thriving family-owned Hyde Park community business, the Litehouse
Whole Food Grill, 1373 E. 53rd. Not only does he strive to serve the best cuisine with the healthiest, natural ingredients, he is
setting a great example for local youth "to work hard and learn all about basic business principles; and maybe even go on to become
successful business owners themselves."
Hyde Parkers have come to know and patronize the Litehouse for about five years now, with a popular food menu that caters to
meat-eaters and vegetarians alike: "We serve the best quality, all natural meals to our customers, and our pizza menu offers something
for everyone," Nance told the BULLETIN.
He is equally proud of his community service background and dedication to mentoring youth, citing his early years growing up
on the far southwest side of Chicago and facing the same difficult challenges as youth of today, explaining: "I could have also chosen a
negative path in a different direction, but I ended up attending suburban Rich Central High School and then receiving a full scholarship
to Central Michigan University."
In the meantime, his visionary dad Willis Nance was laying the foundation for what would become his family business legacy:
and Litehouse now employs several family members as well as local young adults under Rico's leadership; and he continues to share
his "positive vision" with them and the community.
"Since we opened here five years ago, we have served over 40,000 meals to the homeless, and we will be increasing that number
this year," adds Eric Nance with pride; just before rushing back to work in the Litehouse kitchen.

AS THE OWNER OF LITEHOUSE,


Eric (Rico) Nance sees the need
to mentor and "provide a direction
of hope for young people, try and
create a better way of life for them;
and show them there is more to life
than just the streets. I also offer them
a much-needed positive vision and
encourage them to do their best, and
maybe even become future business
owners themselves, with the proper
guidance."
