LEADING THE WAY—

Shown here are Donzaleigh Abernathy, left, and Wilmer Amina Carter, right. Ms. Abernathy, a noted actress, activist and author, gave the keynote address at the Graduation and Scholarship Recognition Ceremony. She included photos of her bombed-out home as a small child, held by the hand by her father, Rev. Dr. Ralph David Abernathy, and side-by-side with Rev, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in Alabama in the midst of the Civil Rights Revolution. She reminded the graduates of the powerful role that children, high school youth and college students played in forcing America to become a better place. The IEABSE also paid a special tribute to former California Assemblymember Wilmer Amina Carter. IEABSE member Melinda Sewer Muganzo presented her with a plaque and four young children presented her with a bouquet of flowers. Carter’s husband, Bill Ratibu Jacocks performed the libation ceremony at the event. (Photo by John Coleman, CP Times ©2013)
