Family Pays Memorial Tribute to Essie Mae Washington Williams

 

The family of Dr. Essie Mae Washington Williams, educator, civil rights activist, author and daughter of Strom Thurmond, paid a memorial tribute to Mrs. Washington Williams on Monday, February 4. Mrs. Washington Williams passed away Sunday, February 3 in Whiterock, South Carolina.

“On behalf of the Williams family we are deeply saddened by the loss of the matriarch of our family,” says Mrs. Maria Hutchinson, Mrs. Washington William’s first born granddaughter, “We have plans for a dedication to the memory of our mother and grandmother and great-grandmother.”

Mrs. Hutchinson further notes, “Her passing is a great and deep loss for our family. The autobiographical saga of her life and family history touched so many people outside of our family. And for that she will always be remembered.”

 

“Mrs. Washington-Williams dedication to education, civil rights and her monumental story of growing up in the Jim Crow Deep South was a moving story of triumph, “says Earl Ofari Hutchinson, President, Los Angeles Urban Policy Roundtable, “The public revelation that she was the daughter of Strom Thurmond touched off a renewed national discussion on race, gender and identity in America. On a personal note, I am truly honored to have known her and talked with her at our many family gatherings. This deepened my admiration for her.

Mrs. Washington Williams was truly an America treasure.”

 

Mrs. Washington Williams family thanks all for their prayers and thoughts. She leaves behind 3 children, 13 grandchildren, and 11 great grandchildren.

Los Angeles Urban Policy Roundtable Awards Afro-American Chamber Music Society Orchestra

 

The Los Angeles Urban Policy Roundtable awarded an Impact Micro Award to the Afro American Chamber Music Society Orchestra on Monday, December 3. The award is to help to underwrite the artist fees for the Afro-American Chamber Music Society Orchestra’s “Black Symphonist Concert Series” in 2013. The orchestra has been a pioneer in promoting and performing the works of African-American composers, artists and musicians in Los Angeles and nationally.

The Impact Micro Awards are made to support organizations and individuals that have a proven track record of commitment to building community sustainability projects, activities, and service. Wells Fargo Foundation is a major partner with the Los Angeles Urban Policy Roundtable’s Impact Micro Award Program.

“Budget cutbacks and the on-going struggle of small community cultural arts groups for funding have made it more imperative that we help fill the funding gap to boost them in their efforts to build community sustainability in under-served communities,” says Los Angeles Urban Policy Roundtable President Earl Ofari Hutchinson.

Los Angeles Urban Policy Roundtable Awards Special Teacher Impact Cash Award

West Los Angeles College Spanish Language Studies Dept.

The Los Angeles Urban Policy Roundtable awarded a special Los Angeles Urban Policy Roundtable Teacher Impact Cash Award on Monday, November 26 to West L.A. College Professor Josefina Coulton and the College’s Spanish Language Studies Dept.  WLA College President Nabil S. Abu-Ghazaleh and WLA College VP Academic Affairs Robert Lewis Sprague and students and College personnel attended the awards presentation. The award was created to assist the thousands of teachers who are forced to pay out of their pocket for classroom materials, supplies, and projects.

According to a research study teachers spend the staggering sum of $1.3 billion per year on student necessities. The average expense is more than $400 per teacher. In the overwhelming majority of cases, the teachers are not reimbursed by school districts.

“School budget cutbacks, and the elimination of vital school programs make it even more imperative that we assist teachers with funding to reimburse them for their classroom and project expenses,” says Los Angeles Urban Policy Roundtable President Earl Ofari Hutchinson, “The Teacher Impact Award Program aims to fill that chronic education need.”
