      NOTE:

      Materials in brackets are my additions. Items are listed more or less in reverse chronological order within each section. All links are presumably working at the time I send this email. Many of the articles listed are printed in other Alabama newspapers; in general, I do not attempt to list all appearances of an article. Some dates given are those when the item was posted to the newspaper or magazine web site. Some items are listed without links because I either could not find online versions or could not find a free one.

      ***Feel free to forward this email as desired.***

      WARNING: Many articles on newspaper and magazine web sites and blogs are accompanied by nasty, anonymous comments about individuals and subjects in or sometimes unrelated to the posted articles. Some articles in these listings will unfortunately include such commentary.

      AND NOW THE NEWS...

      Additional articles can often be found at Google, Topix or Yahoo news sites:

      http://news.google.com/
      http://www.topix.net/
      http://news.yahoo.com/

      Please note that many articles continue beyond the single web page I have linked here. Web sites related to some articles often appear in the "Bonus Material" section.

      **1919 May 18- Coleman Alexander Young is born in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. He
      will fight as a bombardier-navigator with the Tuskegee
      Airmen during World War II and will settle in Detroit and
      work as an auto worker after the war. In 1948, he will
      become the first African American elected to the Wayne
      County Council of the AFL-CIO. He will found the National
      Negro Labor Council in 1951. Walter Reuther and other
      white leaders of the labor movement will refer to the NNLC
      as a tool of the Soviet Union and cause Young to be called
      to testify before the House Committee on Un-American
      Activities in 1952. He will reach the pinnacle of his
      political career when, as a state senator, he is elected
      the first African American mayor of the city of Detroit,
      Michigan in 1973. He will revitalize Detroit, integrate
      the police and fire departments, and will significantly
      increase the number of city contracts with minority
      businesses. He will be elected mayor for an unprecedented
      five terms. He will step down as mayor in 1993 at the age
      of 75. He will join the ancestors in 1997.
