Una Mulzac, Harlem Bookseller With a Passion for Black Politics, Dies at 88

Sun, Feb 5, 2012
Her family donated its complete stock to Hue-Man, now Harlem’s principal bookstore, on Frederick Douglass Boulevard. Both bookstores and others like it have been living rebuttals of false preconceptions about Harlem. “No one else thought a community like ours needs a bookstore,” said Marva Allen, Hue-Man’s chief executive. “The unfortunate thing is that we just keep coming one by one, instead of expanding.” Una Mulzac was born on April 19, 1923, in Baltimore and moved to the Bedford-Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn as a little girl. She graduated from Girls High School, where she ran track, and got a secretarial job at Random House, where she became interested in publishing. She moved to Guyana, then known as British Guiana, around 1963 to start a bookstore and to work for the party of Cheddi Jagan, a revolutionary Marxist. (New York Times)

Dance instructor led graceful life

Wed, Jan 18, 2012
Harlem, told The Commercial Appeal in 1993. The dance studio was named for Dr. Venson's only child, Deeta Venson-Cheek, who was killed in 1991 by her estranged husband. Dr. Venson graduated from Douglass High School and earned degrees from Tennessee State University, the University of Memphis and Southern Illinois University. She was a teacher, guidance counselor and assistant principal with Memphis City Schools. She was active in Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc., the Douglass national alumni group and in the 1983 Leadership Memphis class. Dr. Venson also choreographed the Debutante Cotillion for 44 years, a task she turned over to Washington. She also gave a lot to her family, said niece Yolanda Abram of Durham, N.C. "You know how a dancer is graceful? That's the way she wanted us to act all the time," Abram said. "During my high school graduation, I was not walking tall and graceful. I was playing around. And she lit into me." Dr. Venson first became ill early in 2010 and spent her final days at home. During that time, she never lost her sense of humor, Bailey said. "She told me somebody was saying a prayer for her to stay here and she said 'I wish they'd stop it.' She had a humorous side, even then," said long-time friend Barbara Bailey. "She lived a beautiful life and if there's such a thing, she died a beautiful death," Bailey said. In addition to her husban... (The Commercial Appeal)

A Dazzling Collection Of Newspaper Columns - American Journalism Review

Wed, Dec 7, 2011
It's been said that the ascendancy of Barack Obama signals the beginning of a 'post-racial' America. I wish." The writing often touches brilliance. In 1849, a decade before the Civil War, Frederick Douglass writes, "The white man's happiness cannot be purchased by the black man's misery...all distinctions, founded on complexion, ought to be repealed, repudiated and forever abolished." Defending free speech even for hatemongers, I.F. Stone declares that "almost every generation in American history has had to face what appeared to be a menace of so frightening an order as to justify the limitation of basic liberties...This gutter paranoia can only be prevented by fighting the conditions in which it can breed, and for that fight we need more and not less freedom of discussion." You will recognize countless classics, from Ernie Pyle's "The Death of Captain Waskow" to Grantland Rice's "The Four Horsemen" (you'll remember the lead but don't overlook the ending) to Francis Church's "Yes, Virginia, There Is a Santa Claus." You'll find poignancy (Jim Murray on losing his good eye: "He cried a lot with me, laughed a lot with me...We read a lot of books together"), heartbreak (William Allen White on the death of his daughter) and anger (Art Hoppe on how the "hated and endless" Vietnam War makes him "root against my own country"). Some are obituaries (Grantland Rice: "Game called on account of darkness. Babe Ruth is dead."). Some are hair-raising. The serial killer Son of Sam writes to Jimmy Breslin: "I am still here. Like a spirit roaming the night..I love my work." Some of the most powerful columns connect ordinary people to life-changing events. In 1867, Fanny Fern rides with a boat-man who had been imprisoned in the Andersonville POW camp, and his lack of bitterness overcomes her. Breslin locates the man digging JFK's grave at Arlington ("It's an honor for me to be here."). You can quibble with some choices, and the book is heavy on white males, with important exceptions. Surprisingly, the humor section seems flat. But mostly these are stories to savor. You read them, feel them, almost hear the voices. Bob Considine begins his column about the Louis-Schmeling fight with the words, "Listen to this, buddy." That's my advice, too. ###    ...
