A REAL LIFE SUPER MAN!!
1981: Muhammad Ali talked a despondent 21 year old out of committing suicide. A young man with psychiatric problems stood on a 9th floor window ledge threatening to jump. Police negotiators and psychiatrists talked to him for over two hours but had made no progress. As if it were a scene in a movie Muhammad Ali, former heavyweight champion, arrived to help. The boxing great climbed out the window next to the confused and frightened man. Ali told the man that they were “brothers” and that he was there to help. Miraculously Ali managed to convince the young man to come back inside. He was then taken to the hospital for evaluation and treatment.

Oscar Micheaux: A Self-Made Man.
By: Jeremy Geltzer.
Oscar Micheaux is one of the first black filmmakers. Born of former sharecroppers, he made over 40 films outside of Hollywood that were tailored to black audiences. He scouted for and created his own stars, which produced Paul Robeson and Robert Earl Jones (the father of James Earl Jones) among his discovery. Micheaux forty films were produced in a 30 year time span. His story of struggle and resilience is the reason why Jeremy Geltzer believes this story is a powerful one to tell.
Geltzer is a writer and entertainment lawyer. Micheaux has been non-existent any Hollywood’s film history. Many published books has overlooked the filmmakers contributions to the industry and the African-American film community. Therefore, Geltzer has written this biography for kids of ages 9 to 13. Micheaux’s story serves as an outline for young people who has dreams but may face obstacles along the way.
His name is Cecil Williams and he happens to be a photographer himself. The photo was taken by Mr. Williams mentor John Goodwin, who joined him for a talk at Richland Library in Columbia, South Carolina last September about their experiences as black photographers in South Carolina during Jim Crow and the Civil Rights era. Mr. Williams, an Orangeburg, South Carolina native was a correspondent for Jet Magazine when he was only 15 and made national news after shooting some crucial pictures after the 1968 Orangeburg Massacre. This picture of Mr. Williams currently hangs over the water fountain on the Garden level of the Richland Library in Columbia, South Carolina.
