"Summers ten chance. And i'm almost eighty five. So i came out here and the tender age. When he retired he decided to live out their full time. I've been here twenty years. I was first one in my family to retire here. I met mr pickens back in two thousand eleven. When i wrote a story about sag harbor for the huffington post so i called him back up to talk about the importance of this place. It's history and his experience growing up in the black hamptons. I had an aunt who had a home here. She built in nineteen. Oh eight wow. I came out in live going to camp in the forties. I came to sag harbor. I didn't like camp too. Regimented came out here where i could fish and swim and run and bike and all that stuff. So what would that initial appeal one thousand nine hundred eight. America was a different place but lack folks were finding their way out there. What was the appeal of his bucolic country setting on the water so she liked it and heard about it and came out and bought a little house with outdoor plumbing. Not inside plumbing. We outhouse as school. I was all school but that was how our family i came to sag harbor hundred and thirteen years ago. It's still traveling from new york. Yeah from our home in brooklyn townhouse in brooklyn. The whole family was coming out. My mother would prepare lunch sandwiches and put it in ice. Put it on ice from the icebox. If you didn't ever refrigerate you had an ice box And we would load the car. We had a buick and dan would drive and along trip in those days. You didn't have all these superhighway's for our five hour trip. And they own gas stations. Every you know forty fifty miles and then we'd get to sang harbor and we'd unpack the car and go to the on by then we had our own home in nineteen fifty so we unloaded and began to enjoy the wonders of sag harbor. As a family it was country. Yeah far different. In brooklyn new you went from concrete to sand and dirt and noise to quiet those an enormous difference in the quality of life the space and the clean air and the stars at night in brooklyn. You had smoke coming out of chimneys need. Never saw the stars that here they were clarion clear. You could see beetlejuice. The little dipper in the big debut. See you can see them in new york as you can see matt out here and zang arbor and at one point. I knew all of all of the stars and that was years ago and my mind was a lot sharper for me was great change from brooklyn and i love it. How often would you go out there. Why came out in the summer days. No-one live here year. Round except the shinnecock and montauk at families pretty much but for african american families year round existence wasn't possible man so it was a summer retreat memorial day to labor day and that ninety day period was when you have family and friends come out. And that's how we did sag harbor and then one day in the fifties. Some guy named colin powell showed up from the bronx and we became friends and we both went into service later in our lives and he stayed and did pretty well. He did right from so i think he did call. Okay and what was somebody summer traditions that your family would take party well. We wrote our bikes. We have bb guns. We swam a lot a hit. The beach played baseball to jackie. Robinson just joined the dodgers so all the black kids out here in the indian kids shannon cox. We all playing baseball steinway. Jackie robinson as amazing. There were bicycle races in this kind of thing. But it's very simple nothing to elegant a strategic but fun and then it was some fishing trips. My father by boat and he died to go fishing for portuguese. And this kind of thing and adventure you hide and seek with the kids would say seek. And all the children's games that we brought out from brooklyn and the bronx per johnny on the pony and bring leo. We played those games out here and was fun in the woodland's because you could hide better than you. Canada and tenements brooklyn. Kids had more freedom. You weren't monitored you know twenty four seven and you learn a lot about yourself and your friends. There was more free time more your own time and you learn how to do things and had no experiment. If you didn't feel it you do something in brooklyn you could try it out here and it helps us all to grow into man you know. It sounds like a means to escape the hubbub of the city and city life but in many ways escaping racism and gaze of white folks. We black would come together and be who we are together. Is that accurate. Well removed the racial tension that is omnipresent in america. Where white resentment works. Its way into your daily living here. A community of people who knew each other at converse college together worked together. Lived together in queens or brooklyn or new jersey or connecticut so we did not have the police looking at us with eskin. And saying you know we don't really trust you guys you newcomers. We're going to keep an eye on you. Have that hugh. We did not have the daily tension of the the white power structure looking at us over our shoulder. Monitoring behavior can we were sort of a closed society. Here where are more raising folk ways. Webinars they weren't imposed on us. They were generated by us. Big difference big difference. Why were communities like these harbor safe spaces for black people back back then. The town was which is ninety nine percent white. There were workman in town. The plumbers and the architects. And you know you name it. Gas providers and our relationship became interesting because they needed our money because the war had ended and this town was struggling financially and black folks injected a lot of cash into the society so our relationship was fine but there wasn't much social event intercourse though. Yeah it was. The the african american families all sort of knew each other. They were just twelve at one point. Twelve families here in sag harbor hills but we all know each other including my grade school principal. He was here. Much to my chagrin. Left him in brooklyn. You bought a house right in front of ours. What did it mean to look and see this community. This is burgeoning community of hardworking industrious. Beautiful black people on veteran because you had judges and lawyers and doctors and dennis and you had bus drivers. You had taxi drivers you you know. We didn't have any differentiation. Among the professionals versus non professionals we were friends and family and your title did not matter did.

I saw a story months ago that Scottsdale Bible Church was jumping in to help with Cove in And it was such a unique program. There were kids in Phoenix that didn't have access to technology. There was all the concern about the Internet. But there were a lot of kids that didn't have the access they needed to the tools that could let them learn whether it was laptops or tablets. The things they did not have technologically in order to keep going in school, so as a congregation, they jumped on board and they they wanted to raise within their congregation. A million dollars. During a pandemic. When people are losing jobs, and people are concerned they wanted to raise money in order to provide that service provide those pieces of equipment to kids in need that needed them. And I don't want to get the whole story away. But I watched the video the other day of teachers and students. With new laptops and explaining what how this was going to change the learning ability of these kids. We talk so much about education on this show and really after being in a high school graduation last night. We see that we do see the future. I'm not being I don't think I'm being um, you know, corny by saying that joining us right now is past arresting Rossello from Scottsdale Bible Church. First of all, Pastor, congratulations to you and to the congregation. Tell us what actually happened with this million dollar goal. Thanks so much for having us And thanks for you really started in December by raising some awareness around the projects. We just appreciate your support and in what you've done thus far, But we sat with our elder board and our director local outreach Shannon Cox brought what What was a pretty big concept, which was the idea of raising a million dollars a zany year in this is not like a big six month campaign, but just announcement and then a push for a year in gift that would provide laptops for like you said. Those kids in need in the midst of what we call this digital divide, Where, out of nowhere. We had kids who were stuck at home in a remote learning environment without access to that technology. And so we brought that vision. Elders sat back and said, yes, this is a great idea, which has a staff we were very excited about. But we were able to bring that vision of the congregation and what was so exciting to watch was covert caught all of us. I mean the world literally by surprise, and it also made it really hard to step into some of what can we do Type activities. I think people were really at that time end of last year. They were hungry to do something, but because of the restrictions and everything that was going on, it was hard to know what to do. And so it was amazing to watch the congregation rally behind this, and the goal is to raise a million dollars in but the time it was said and done. We were able to announce this last weekend. Uh, the congregation came forward with the hunt with 1.5 million, which was incredible, based on The short on ramp to the project, as well as just the economy and some of just the unease that we were all feeling around just the economy and culture. So we had raised more than what we were. We were needing and what that provided us. The ability to do is not just meet every identified need in the city of Phoenix. But we were the work of the city of Phoenix as well. A school connect to expand the project also go out to school districts in Litchfield telephone as well as Fountain Hill. The total provided laptops was the city of Phoenix brought about 4300 and 75. Because of the general the generosity of the congregation. We were able to come with 7896. So with a total of 12,271 laptops that went out to those kids in need, and it was amazing thing to watch happen. That's just an incredible number. And and the I've, I am always blown away by the giving nature of the people in this valley when there is a need that's exposed, even in a time when people are afraid to spend money. The amazing things that people are willing to do. This was incredible. Their pastor, the church that I attended in North Phoenix Palm crossed I had the past running. I've had Rob Williams on a number of times and said that Cove it forced them to find new ways to reach people that they were actually benefits off the things they had to do in order to meet their congregations needs. Had to do the things they normally did. Did you find it that way for your church as well? Absolutely. I think one of the things that was so unique about Cove. It was, um it disrupted all of us and in the midst of being disrupted, you know you talk about you know whether it's Palm Croft and some of the different ways that they reached out, you know, we talk about our digital vibe project. Ccv stepped up in the middle of this whole time and raised a million dollars for mental health needs. One of the things that happened. We talked about this a little bit this weekend. Woz. It's a tricky time just to kind of figure out, particularly with beliefs and all those things going on the church's really striving to move into the community and just love well and that can get lost. Sometimes in the differing of beliefs and things, and one of the things that I was so excited about was whether it was Ccv. What you talked about palm crop us. It was the love of God being shown into the community in a way by people. We're sitting back and say we just want to love well, we want people to know that their love and one of the great things about this project was it was able to show to kids in need that people who don't even know them, love them care about their future and want to make sure that their needs are provided for and I don't know of anything that demonstrates the love of Jesus Christ. Better than something like a show of generosity like that. So yes, this had everybody in the church around the city, not just a church here there, but.

"We have a wooden icon religious icon that was that survived for many decades from the Soviet period because it was. In the floorboards of people's homes. The Kremlin during the Soviet period. Just like today. It's biggest fear is the people. And so they didn't like the idea of people organizing underground. So what they did was granted the orthodox church relative freedom inside the Soviet Union and the infiltrated the the church, of course, with KGB agents, and they forced people of faith to become informants. And so the the Russian Orthodox church was historically used as an extension of the KGB to control and spy on people. And also the KGB agents within the orthodox church could travel abroad and spy while posing as priests and other members of the flock. So is very convenient to grant some relative freedom for the for the church, and so within Ukraine, the Russian Orthodox church is always seen as a symbol of repression and corruption and the KGB. So just having this freedom for Moscow finally is like breaking off the shackles again of of the Kremlin. I can't campus is enough. How significant is and how deeply this trauma? Runs of the abusive power that went on under the Russian Orthodox church even have friends here. New York City who are Russian and there's one church in particular. They refused to go to because they suspect that it has ties to the Kremlin. That's how deep this trauma goes in into Taliban regime's, one of the first casualties is of course, trust and that's all done deliberately. So we're not United's or broken apart. The social fabric is destroyed and people are more easy to control terrorize. So all of this is incredibly significant. And fortunately would also means is going we're going to see this pattern continue where every time Ukraine wins a major victory in its independence from. Breaking away from the Kremlin orbit. What? Then happens is Russia escalates its attacks against Ukraine, so expect to see some very scary escalation of Russia's war on Ukraine in punishment for cheating. This great moment of of independence of having a now, independent Ukrainian Orthodox church as blessed by Constantinople. So now is the time to celebrate. But of course, the war's coming in terms of a very serious esscalation, certainly and unfortunately Europe is too divided. And we at the moment to really stand up to any escalation of Putin's aggression. Putin wasn't even sanctioned for openly attacking Ukraine in international waters. Back in November. The lights are on in the White House. Probably literally the lights won't be on White House because the government shutdown soon. So yeah. So right now is twenty nine hundred a year for Putin to really try to go in deeper in Ukraine. Grab more land and create more casualties and refugees. So it's going to be a very scary time so watch Ukraine as events continue to enfold there. Yeah. So merry Christmas. Everyone eat drink and be merry for tomorrow. You will die.
