Wonder Kids – Cashing In On Your Kids Or Expanding Childhood To Include Labor

6n8yroldsBrothers are Entrepreneurs, Change Agents and Authors at 6 and 8 Years Old

When they were 8 & 6 years old Jeremiah and Joshua West showed the world that they were caring, kind, and amazing young boys. They are published authors. They are philanthropists. They are motivating kids all over the country to help those that need it the most. These two young men from Greece, NY showed us what it means to give back and truly be a helpful person.

Jeremiah and Joshua knew that they wanted to help people in need but they also knew that they wanted to inspire other kids to do the same. They wrote children’s books in a series called “Champions of Change”. The books are all about learning how to save money, how to earn money, and how to give back to those in need. The cover depicts the West brothers helping a homeless man by giving him food. They have even come up with initiatives to help other kids become interested in volunteering for different events throughout the year.

11yroldThis Boy Will Amaze You: He’s a Business Owner and Gentleman at 11 Years Old

 Mosiah Bridges is no ordinary 11 year old. He refers to himself as NBT. What does that stand for? Next Big Thing. And that is exactly what he is. Lester Holt from TODAY said that Bridges was precocious, well-dressed, and very talented. So what does he do that makes him so talented and will make him the next big thing? He owns his own company.

Mosiah started the company, Mo’s Bows when he was just 9 years old. He is a stylish dresser and felt that others should be just as stylish as he is. He began hand making bow ties and the company flourished from there. He has sold thousands of his bow ties already. His grandmother taught him how to sew when he was very young and it has taken off from there.

These boys now work for a living at ages where most of us didn’t have a care except to go to school and try to color within the lines. is having them work legal? is it healthy? Do people even care? The parents had to be a driving force or how else wold they have gotten to be known so what does this say about parenthood? Are children now another way of bringing money into the household? Celebrities have done it so why not the common person. There is one thing when a child has talent but when it comes to taking a child’s hobby and turning it into a business can anyone really say there will be a balance with making money and having a childhood? What are your thoughts?

Ruby Dee dies at 91- Legend on the Screen and the Stage

 

Ruby Dee, the award-winning actress whose seven-decade career included triumphs on stage and screen, has died. She was 91.

Dee died peacefully Wednesday at her New Rochelle, New York, home, according to her representative, Michael Livingston.

Dee — often with her late husband, Ossie Davis — was a formidable force in both the performing arts community and the civil rights movement. The couple were master and mistress of ceremonies at the 1963 March on Washingon, and she was friends with the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X. Dee received the Frederick Douglass Award in 1970 from the New York Urban League.

As an actress, her film credits included “The Jackie Robinson Story” (1950), “A Raisin in the Sun” (1961), “Buck and the Preacher” (1972), “Do the Right Thing” (1989) and “American Gangster” (2007).

Dee earned an Oscar nomination for her performance in “Gangster.” She also won an Emmy and Grammy for other work.

Broadway star Audra McDonald paid tribute to Dee when she accepted a Tony Award on Sunday, crediting Dee, Maya Angelou, Diahann Carroll and Billie Holiday for making her career possible. McDonald won a best actress Tony in 2004 for playing the same role Dee created on Broadway in 1959 and in the 1961 film version of “Raisin.”

In a statement, Gil Robertson IV of the African American Film Critics Association praised Dee’s contributions.

“The members of the African American Film Critics Association are deeply saddened at the loss of actress and humanitarian Ruby Dee,” said Robertson. “Throughout her seven-decade career, Ms. Dee embraced different creative platforms with her various interpretations of black womanhood and also used her gifts to champion for Human Rights. Her strength, courage and beauty will be greatly missed.”

Dee was born Ruby Ann Wallace in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1922, and moved to New York’s Harlem as a child. She took the surname Dee after marrying blues singer Frankie Dee two decades later. She divorced Dee after a short marriage and was wedded to Davis in 1948. Davis preceded his wife in death in 2005.

‘With Ossie and Ruby’

Her acting career started in New York in the 1940s, first appearing onscreen in the 1946 musical “That Man of Mine.” A role in “The Jackie Robinson Story” brought her national attention.

Dee became known to a younger generation with roles in two Spike Lee films. She co-starred with Davis in Lee’s “Do the Right Thing” and in his 1991 film “Jungle Fever.”

Her television work included 20 episodes of “Peyton Place” in 1969 and the role of Queen Haley in the 1979 miniseries “Roots: The Next Generation.”

‘The finest performance I have ever seen’

She was regularly praised for her acting.

In the 1961 film version of “Raisin,” Lorraine Hansberry’s play about a working-class black family trying to move up in the world, she played Ruth Younger, the wife of Sidney Poitier’s striving Walter.

“Miss Dee is quietly magnificent as the angry young man’s hard-working wife,” wrote Bosley Crowther in The New York Times.

Her stage work was equally lauded.

“Ruby Dee as Lena is giving the finest performance I have ever seen,” wrote The New York Times’ Clive Barnes in 1970 of Dee in Athol Fugard’s play “Boesman and Lena.” “Never for a moment do you think she is acting.”

She won an Obie for that performance in 1971.

Other awards included a 1972 Drama Desk award for “Wedding Band,” a 1991 Emmy for “Decoration Day,” a 2007 Grammy for spoken-word album and a Golden Globe for “American Gangster.”

Always an activist

Dee and Davis — the two, who were married 56 years, always seemed connected — were an odd couple in some ways: She from New York, he from Waycross, Georgia. She was small and stylish, he was big and bluff. But their beliefs were often as one, and they practiced what they preached.

“We shared a great deal in common; we didn’t have any distractions as to where we stood in society. We were black activists. We had a common understanding,” she told Ebony in 1988.

Dee and Davis met while acting in the 1945 Broadway play “Jeb” in 1945. He proposed three years later with a telegram he sent from Chicago, where he was touring in a play, according to their joint autobiography “With Ossie and Ruby: In This Life Together,” published near their 50th anniversary. The telegram to his girlfriend said he “might as well marry” her. Dee wrote back, “Don’t do me any favors.”

Their book revealed the challenges of their long marriage, including a phase in the 1960s in which they agreed they could sleep with others when work separated them. The arrangement lasted only a short time, they said. “We ultimately decided that what we had chosen as a possibility didn’t really work for us,” Davis said in 1999.

“You have to learn how to be married,” Dee said. “You have to learn to love somebody.”

There was no television in their home for years, The New York Times observed in a 1995 profile, because “television represented an industry that refused to hire black people in significant numbers or in anything other than stereotypical roles.”

They appeared at protest rallies and took their children with them. She admitted to a fiery temperament: In a famous “American Gangster” scene, she slaps star Denzel Washington across the face, noting she put everything into the motion.

“It’s not far from my nature to whack,” she told USA Today. “There’s a streak in me.”

Ruby Dee, Ossie Davis arrested at protest

Dee and Davis were arrested in 1999 while protesting outside New York City police headquarters against the police shooting of an unarmed African immigrant, Amadou Diallo. Dee told reporters the shooting “reminds me of when there were lynchings all over the country.”

“We’ve got to start saying ‘No further. This must stop,’ ” Dee said.

Even before the appearances in Spike Lee movies made them famous faces again, Dee and Davis were always working, always pushing, whether it was producing a 1986 PBS special on King or creating a two-person show drawing on the work of African-American writer Zora Neale Hurston.

The two also shared a lot of laughter.

“The life is the fun,” she told the Times in 1995.

“We walk in the middle of humor every day, and we laugh,” Davis responded.

“And we fight, too,” Dee replied. “Yeah. I win.”

Dee is survived by three children, Guy Davis, Hasna Muhammad Davis and Nora Day Davis.

Man, 39, killed by teen gunman in B15 bus shooting in Brooklyn

Angel Rojas was an innocent bystander when sources said a 14-year-old started wildly firing off shots at a rival that boarded the B15 bus at Marcus Garvey Blvd. near Greene Ave. in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn.

 

 

 

A 14-year-old fiend turned a city bus into a murder scene in the flash of a gun Thursday when his bullet meant for a rival killed an innocent Brooklyn dad instead, sources said.

Angel Rojas, 39, was sitting on the B15 when the kid shot up the bus at about 6:20 p.m. at Marcus Garvey Blvd. near Greene Ave. in Bedford-Stuyvesant, cops said. Rojas, the married father of two, was shot in the back of the head.

Police took the teen, identified by relatives as Kahton Anderson, into custody and recovered a gun and six shells, cops said.

Angel Rojas was killed while doing nothing else but riding a B15 through Brooklyn around rush hour Thursday.

Angel Rojas was killed while doing nothing else but riding a B15 through Brooklyn around rush hour Thursday.

The alleged killer and some other teens were in the rear of Brooklyn-to-JFK bus No. 4184 when an apparent rival boarded and started walking toward them, sources said.

“One kid pulls out a gun and he lets off a couple of rounds,” a source said. “He’s running out of the bus, still letting rounds go, and this poor guy gets shot in the back of the head. He wasn’t the intended victim.”

Rojas’ son Saury, 12, and his mom were at the hospital getting his broken finger treated when police notified them of their loss.

Members of the Bedford-Stuyvesant Volunteer Ambulance Corps rushed Rojas, who still had a pulse, to Woodhull Hospital in critical condition, police and sources said.

But the mortally wounded man died there at about 7:50 p.m., police sources said.

Neighbors were dumbfounded by the loss.

“He was such a good family man. All he would do is leave early to go to work, and look what happened,” said Yovanna Melo, 33, who lives next-door to the family. “This is terrible news for everyone that knew him.”

Rojas’ wife of 13 years, Maria, fell to her knees sobbing in the living room of the family’s small second-floor Brownsville apartment when she found out her husband was dead, family members said.

Angel Rojas was killed while riding a B15 bus in Brooklyn after a teenager started firing off rounds toward a rival, police sources say.

The victim’s 12-year-old son, Saury, and 8-year-old daughter, April, also crumbled at their mother’s side. The young boy tried to make sense of the senseless.

“I’m 12, he’s 14. He was too small to be around a gun like that,” Saury said. “My dad would still be alive right now . . .”

Rojas uprooted his family from their native Dominican Republic and came to America four years ago in search of a better life that didn’t come easy.

Police say a 14-year-old is behind the deadly shooting on a B15 bus that killed an bystander.

Police say a 14-year-old is behind the deadly shooting on a B15 bus that killed an bystander.

The hard-working dad took the B15 bus every morning at 6 a.m. to his job at a fruit stand on Grand Ave., his family said. He worked a 12-hour shift before coming home to rest and get ready for his second job at a deli on Clarkson St.

“My dad was a nice guy. Every day he’d work for us. Every time he came home he used to come give me a hug,” said Saury, who had tears in his eyes.

A source said the teen had been exiting the bus as he sprayed gunfire toward his rival inside. One of the bullets hit rider Angel Rojas in the head.

Cops found their teen suspect with an unloaded gun shortly after the shooting, police said.

The alleged punk killer and two pals were taken into custody and brought to the 79th Precinct stationhouse for questioning, police sources said.

The six shell casings were found at the scene, police sources said.

The public transportation mayhem took place on a B15 bus near the intersection of Marcus Garvey Blvd. and Lafayette Ave. in Brooklyn.

No charges had been filed in the killing by early Friday, police said.

“He’s just a good kid,” Anderson’s grandfather, William Green, said outside the stationhouse.

“This is the ghetto. You hang out with the wrong crowd and things happen,” the Brooklyn resident said. “This is his first real contact with the police.”

The tragedy on the B15 comes almost three weeks after another shooting involving a Brooklyn bus. Police say rookie cop James Li, 26, was blasted three times in the legs in February by a fare beater who turned out to be wanted on a drug charge.

Rashun Robinson, 28, was leaving through the back door of the B46 bus on Empire Blvd. in Crown Heights at about 5 p.m. when he was caught by Li.

The ex-con and reputed Bloods member was determined to dodge jail time at any cost and opened fire while running from the bus, police said.
