to the Editor
There are many things said in the
media today about how difficult and
people relationships are...lack of
leadership, no support for each other,
no consensus, and no growth. There
have been many questions asked
about who is going to help the
African-American communities rise
above communities of poverty, teen
pregnancy, increasing school drop-
out rates, gang banging,
unemployment, and getting off
welfare. Blame has been place on
this entity, this person, and that
person, racial discrimination, and so
There is a mindset that all African-
Americans look and act alike and
that they all now each other (ha ha).
At this time, I would like to share a
positive note with San Antonio.
During the summer of 1092, directly
as a result of the L. A. riots. Congress
and the President voted to allocate
additional JTPAII-B funds to needy
cities. San Antonio received an
additional 4.6 million dollars.
Due to this effort, double the number
of people were working, juvenile
crime decreased, retail store sales
increased, children paid adult bills,
parents were happy, young people
were proud, etc.
New school clothes were purchased,
new hairdos popped up, new shoes,
a new attitude and increased self
esteem,a s well an an uplifting
experience in the workplace.
Drop-outs went back to school and/
or GED's were obtained.
I saw the San Antonio Works Board
at its best. City staff worked
diligently to make the San Antonio
Service Delivery Area the best in the
country by implementing a strategy
that gave the funds out to a broad
community of service providers,
enabling service to be truly city and
But more important than that, I
saw an African-American agency
located in east San Antonio become
a knight in shining armor. This
agency took on a major task—
overseeing their own increased
operation along with three other
agencies, two being rookies.
That agency was Bexar County
Opportunities Opportunity and
Industrialization Center (BCOIC).
BCOIC singlehandedly leapt tall
buildings in a single bound, they
formalized a partnership with three
agencies that were not initially funded
for the I1B Summer Youth Program,
but all three agencies—Project Free,
The George Gervin Youth Center,
and Texas Teenage Crime
BCOIC ' provided technical
assistance, supplies, materials,
leadership, a listening ear, direction,
and a level of professionalism that
made me proud. The BCOIC staff
made things happen.
By doing so, over 500more African-
American and Hispanic young people
that were hardest to serve and who
were considered more at risk were
employed during the summer of
I am proud to say that I was an eye
witness to the beauty of community
partnerships. For this, with great
personal joy, a special and sincere
thanks to two great African-
American men, Mr. Marvin Kennedy
and Mr. Belvin Stewart.
