Tow truck drivers will form funeral procession for fallen brother - Alabama's News Leader

Monday, December 19, 2016

Tow truck operator John Hubbard of Bessemer was killed Saturday while servicing a car on the Interstate. Photo Courtesy: Wes PassmoreTUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Tow truck operator John Hubbard knew his life purpose early on. Hubbard asked for a job at Passmore Towing and Recovery in Bessemer at age 20. Five years later, early Saturday morning, his earthly mission ended. Fellow tow truck drivers tell ABC 33/40 Hubbard was the type guy who went out of his way to help people."He was a hard worker. He loved his job. He loved the towing business. You've got to love it to do it," said Dwayne Kizziah, owner of Dwayne's Towing and Recovery in Tuscaloosa.Wednesday, traffic homicide investigators mapped the scene where Hubbard was killed over the weekend on Interstate 59/20. The Alabama Law Enforcement Agency said two vehicles collided Saturday causing one to strike the disabled car Hubbard was servicing. ALEA has not determined if Alabama's Move Over Law was a factor in the crash. Either way, tow truck operators like Kizziah want you to slow down and move over."I worked one [a crash] one time and all I heard was run. Everybody ran th

William Christenberry, artist of a crumbling, memory-haunted South, dies at 80 - Washington Post

Monday, December 12, 2016

South, even though they never showed a human being.“They are not self-portraits,” he said in 1983. “But they’re everything I know.”William Andrew Christenberry Jr. was born Nov. 5, 1936, in Tuscaloosa, Ala. His father sold insurance and dairy products.In 1944, Mr. Christenberry and his sister received a joint Christmas gift: the Brownie camera that he used throughout his life. He studied painting at the University of Alabama, graduating in 1958 and receiving a master’s degree in 1959.One of his teachers, painter Melville Price, told him that he had to leave Alabama, at least for a while, in order to have a wider vision of the world. In 1961, Mr. Christenberry moved to New York, where he held eight jobs in a little more than a year.He overcame his shyness to introduce himself to Evans, who helped find him a job in the photo archives at Time-Life publications. From 1962 to 1968, Mr. Christenberry taught at what is now the University of Memphis, where he and Eggleston became close friends. Eggleston began photographing in color after seeing Mr. Christenberry’s work.He came to Washington in 1968 to teach at the Corcoran School, retiring in 2008.Throughout the 1980s, Mr. Christenberry used a large-format camera, but in later years he returned to his Brownie. His works were often featured in books and are in the collections of the Corcoran Gallery (now part of the National Gallery of Art), the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the Whitney Museum of Art and many other museums. A new exhibition will open Dec. 9 at the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore.Survivors include his wife of 49 years, Sandra Deane Christenberry of Washington; three children, Emlyn Christenberry Ward of Alexandria, Va., and William Andrew Christenberry III, who goes by Andrew, and Kate Christenberry, both of Washington; a brother; and five grandchildren.Mr. Christenberry’s influence can be felt not just among visual artists but through the work of writers and musicians who summon the abiding spirit of history and landscape in the South.“Whenever someone asks why I always photograph in Alabama,” Mr. Christenberry told photography critic Andy Grundberg in 2001, “I have to answer that, yes, I know there are other places, but Alabama is where my heart is.”Read more Washington Post obituaries Mose Allison, who sang the blues with whimsy and a twist of jazz, dies at 89 Kjell Sandved, photographer who found art in butterfly wings, dies at 93 Ellsworth Kelly, abstract artist of enduring influence, dies at 92

Auburn fan you would ever meet."He took me to every Auburn alumni function in Birmingham until I was probably 13. I went to Alabama and he came, I think, to one football game in Tuscaloosa in four years that I was in college. He was very proud to havebeen an auburn graduate." she said.He was also a proud graduate (with honors) from the University of Virginia School of Law. Tim served in the Army Reserves, and was captain from 1972-1978.Upon graduation from law school, Tim clerked for U.S. District Judge Robert Varner. He was a member of the Birmingham (Executive Committee 1983-1985) and American Bar Associations, The Alabama and Florida State Bars, Alabama Defense Lawyers Association, and the Defense Research Institute. He was a founding member of the Auburn University Bar Association and the Academy of Attorney Mediators. He was also a certified mediator and arbitrator.One of Tim's hobbies was running. "He was a marathon runner," Knecht said. "He ran six marathons. His best time, which he was very proud of, was 3:05 in the New York marathon. He also participated in triathlons and enjoyed biking."After Tim suffered an ankle injury and could no longer run, Knecht said her father would rust out a stairmaster at the Birmingham Country Club every year.Tim also had a soft spot in his heart for pets without a home."The biggest thing about him is that he loved dogs. Every dog there ever was. His last three dogs, one was found by a friend on the side of the road and two he found at the Summit. His mission in life was to take care of straydogs."Ezra B.

Sharpton delivers eulogy at Curry funeral - WVTM13

Monday, September 12, 2016

Family, friends and civil rights leaders gathered Saturday for a final farewell to Tuscaloosa native George Curry."George Curry was a pioneering journalist. He fought for black media. He fought for us to be heard. He was someone that personally helped to guide the civil rights movement the last 40 years. I had to be here,” the Rev. Al Sharpton said.Curry’s website, Emerge News Online, which targeted African-American news audiences, was one of his main projects up until his death this past weekend.Sharpton said he plans to make sure the website lives on.“He was the kind of person that held friends and foes accountable. He would write negative about me and we'd talk the next day. He believed that journalism should be ethical and accountable," Sharpton said.Curry lived in Laurel, Maryland, in recent years, but always called Tuscaloosa home. He graduated from Druid High School in 1965 and kept in close contact with several of his classmates over the years."So what George means to me is a warrior. Someone who remained true to the causes of civil rights. Someone who was wi

Family, friends prepare to say goodbye to George Curry - WVTM13

Monday, August 29, 2016

Family and friends are preparing to say goodbye to a civil rights icon in Tuscaloosa.George Curry was known to many as a journalist and civil rights activist. But for family members, things were much simpler."He was one thing to the world, but it didn't diminish what he was to us. And he managed to balance it out. To be our brother, No. 1 with us,” sister Charlotte Purvis said.The Tuscaloosa native died last weekend in Laurel, Maryland, where he lived in recent years. He was 69.Curry was known for his syndicated column in over 200 black-owned newspapers."We just really never fully understood the magnitude of his success and of him until him. I mean, we knew it,” sister Sylvia Polk said.He graduated from the historic Druid High School in 1965.His family says he always considered Tuscaloosa home and wanted his final resting spot to be here."Everybody could relate to him and everybody just... Even whether they met him or not, they just felt that so personal and they just felt he was a part of their family,” Polk said.Curry's funeral is set for 11 a.m. Saturday

Home Chicago-Pulse Award-winning Civil Rights Journalist and Black Press Columnist George Curry Dead... - The Chicago Cusader

Monday, August 22, 2016

Lafayette said Dr. Steele was initially too distraught to make the announcement himself and was also awaiting notification of Curry’s immediate family.Steele and Curry grew up together in Tuscaloosa, Ala. where Curry bloomed as a civil rights and sports writer as Steele grew into a politician and civil rights leader.Curry began his journalism career at Sport Illustrated, the St. Louis Post Dispatch, and then the Chicago Tribune. But he is perhaps best known for his editorship of the former Emerge Magazine and more recently for his work as editor-in-chief for the National Newspaper Publishers Association from 2000-2007 and again from 2012 until last year.His name is as prominent among civil rights circles as among journalists. He traveled with the Rev. Jesse Jackson and appeared weekly to do commentary on the radio show of the Rev. Al Sharpton, “Keepin’ It Real.”Friends, fellow journalists and many of the people that Curry touched throughout his career took to social media to share their condolences.STATEMENT BY DOROTHY R. LEAVELL, PUBLISHER OF THE CRUSADER NEWSPAPERS, CHICAGO, IL AND GARY, IN REGARDING GEORGE CURRY’S DEATHGeorge Curry was the consummate journalist with integrity as his mantra. We shall miss this voice of reason and thought-provoking columns full of researched facts. It was just the week of August 13th that George wrote a column titled “Even Funerals Are Not Family Reunions Anymore.” He used his family as an example of the loss of closeness that he had enjoyed during his childhood and early adult life and bemoaned the fact that at his cousin Charlene’s funeral the week before that closeness was no longer there. What was ironic he pledged that he would try to get his family back together by saying, ”Neither Big Mama nor Aunt Julia Mae would be pleased that our once close-knit family is in shambles. But as long as I have breath in me, I am going to try to get my family back together. I know it’s a very long shot, but I owe that to Big Mama and Aunt Julia Mae to keep trying.” I’m sure George meant to keep that pledge and perhaps the closeness of
