Dolton police are asking for help finding a teen who hasn’t been seen since he called his father to pick him up on a south suburban street.

According to a release from Dolton police, Austin Battle, 19, called his father on March 20 and asked to be picked up at Sibley Boulevard and Burnham Avenue. When the father arrived, Battle was not there, police said.

His father drove around and waited for Battle for a long period of time but couldn’t locate the teen, the release said. The father also called Battle’s phone several times and there was no answer. Several hours later, Battle’s family went to police to file a report.

The next day, Battle’s father called his son’s phone and the phone was off, but it was turned back on the following day, police said in the release. Battle’s family was able to leave messages at first but now the phone will not take messages.

Battle is described as a black male standing about 5 feet 11 inches tall with black hair and brown skin. He was last seen wearing a gray hoodie, blue jeans and black boots.

Battle, a student at South Suburban College, suffers from bouts of depression, police said.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts should contact the Dolton Police Department at (708) 201-3211.


R.I.P Mr. William Miles

If you are like me then you probably never heard of William Miles. William Miles is a man that took it upon himself to learn film and make films about black people and our history when mainstream society could careless to do so. Unfortunately, it is by his passing that I have come to find out about this pioneer. Mr. Miles died at the age of 82 on May 12 in Queens, Ny. I just want to say thank you Mr. Miles for caring enough about future generations to not only educate them, but to leave a legacy for them. May your soul rest in peace.

Please read more about him below:

The cause was uncertain, but Mr. Miles had myriad health problems, including Parkinson’s disease and dementia, said his wife of 61 years, Gloria.
Mr. Miles was part historical sleuth, part preservationist, part bard. His films, which combined archival footage, still photographs and fresh interviews, were triumphs of curiosity and persistence in unearthing lost material about forgotten subjects.
His first important film, “Men of Bronze” (1977), was about the 369th Infantry Regiment, an all-black combat unit that the Army shipped overseas during World War I but, because of segregationist policies, fought under the flag of France. Serving with great distinction, the unit spent more time in the front-line trenches than any other American unit. Collectively, it was awarded the Croix de Guerre and came to be known as the Harlem Hellfighters and also the Black Rattlers.

Spotlight of the Day: Chelesa Fearce

Chelesa Fearce is a high school student from Charles Drew High School  that graduated valedictorian with a gpa of 4.466 despite being homeless for most of high school. Fearce from Clayton county, Ga will be attending Spellmen in the fall as a college junior. Congrats Chelesa Fearce, may God continue to bless you! Keep up the great work! I can’t do the article justice, but I tried to summarize the most important parts, but here is the article below:

Homeless teen graduates as valedictorian of high school class | www.wsbtv.com

CLAYTON COUNTY, Ga. — A Clayton County teen credits hard work for becoming valedictorian of her graduating class.

Chelesa Fearce, a senior at Charles Drew High School, said she was homeless for most of her high school career, even living in her mother’s car at times.

“I just told myself to keep working, because the future will not be like this anymore,” Fearce said. “You’re worried about your home life and then worried at school. Worry about being a little hungry sometimes, go hungry sometimes. You just have to deal with is. You eat what you can, when you can.”

The family of five sometimes had an apartment, but those occasions were short-lived.

“Ended up back in another shelter because I got laid off from my job maybe about four or five times,” Fearce’s mother, Reenita Shephard said.

“I just did what I had to do,” Fearce said.

Fearce achieved a 4.466 GPA and tested high enough to enroll in all college courses for her last two years of high school. When she enters Spelman in the fall, she will do so as a college junior.

Her SAT score of 1900 also made her a star student at Charles Drew.

Fearce’s sister is graduating this year as salutatorian from George Washington Carver High School in Atlanta.

“I read to them a lot. Everything was a learning experience,” Shephard said.

“Don’t give up. Do what you have to do right now so that you can have the future that you want,” Fearce said.
