Sing for Statehood - "Stand Up for D.C." E-mail

Every movement has its songs.  Now D.C. statehood has a wonderful new song to D.C.'s own unique go-go beat. The LCB Group, consisting of Glenn Leonard, Joe Coleman and Joe Blunt, former members of The Temptations, The Platters, and the Drifters, respectively, assisted by Ayanna Gregory, daughter of celebrated human rights activist and comedian Dick Gregory, debuted Stand Up for D.C. at January 7, 2012 benefit concert at the Carnegie Institution that was sponsored by the American Civil Liberties Union of the National Capital.  Stand Up for D.C. was written and produced by Joe Coleman and Moe Daniels. Leonard, Coleman and Blunt are D.C. natives and have known and worked with each other since they were children.  The Godfather of Go-Go, D.C.'s own Chuck Brown, received a special award from the ACLU-NCA for his work and support of D.C. statehood.

CDs of the song can be purchased from the ACLU-NCA (202-457-0800). A portion of the proceeds go to the ACLU-NCA, D.C. Statehood Fund. It can also be purchased from iTunes [http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/stand-up-4-d-c-single/id493572134].

"Stand up for D.C." on Saturday night

By: Examiner Staff Writer | 01/06/12 11:51 Am

The Washington Examiner Follow Us @Dcexaminer

The D.C. statehood movement is getting a boost and a song of its own on Saturday night. "Stand up for D.C." will be performed at a benefit by the LCB Group, which features former members of legendary vocal groups the Temptations, Platters and Drifters.

"Civil rights activist Rev. Walter Fauntroy used to visit my home in D.C. when I was a child, so I was aware from a young age that D.C. doesn’t have voting rights,” said Joe Coleman, former lead singer for the Platters. “It’s a civil rights issue that’s very important to me."

The event is the D.C. Statehood Benefit Party, which will be two shows, 8 and 10 p.m., at the Carnegie Institution at 16th and P streets NW. Preceeding the music for those interested will be an educational program by the American Civil Liberties Union of the Nation's Capital. The session is designed to train volunteers how to lobby members of Congress on D.C. statehood, with a focus on getting more co-sponsors for the current statehood bill.

The "teach-in" is free. Tickets for the musical peformances are $50, or $100 to also attend a private reception. For tickets or information, call (202) 457-0800 or email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Senate hold interferes with D.C. Ward 5 election E-mail

NBC Washington reporter Matt Stabley reported that the special election to fill the Ward 5 seat vacated by Council Member Harry Thomas raises a home rule issue in that some Senator put a hold on her bill to reduce the time between a vacancy occuring in the Council and when a special election could be held. If her bill, a noncontroversial bill that affects only the District of Columbia, had been approved, District taxpayers could have filled the Ward 5 vacancy during the April 3. 2012 primary instead having to pay for additional election.

Reopening of D.C.'s WWI Memorial E-mail

On November 10, 2011, D.C. Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton, Mayor Vincent Gray, and Council Chairman Kwame Brown joined Bob Vogel, Superintendent of the National Mall and Memorial Parks for the U.S. Park Service in reopening the District of Columbia World War I Memorial on the Mall. The District of Columbia, like all the states, funded and buit its own memorial to its soldiers who fought in the "Great War."  The memorial was built on the Mall and the National Park Service was charged with its maintenance.  After falling into great disrepair, the Congress authorized the cleaning, realnscaping and repair of the memorial.  For information on the efforts by some to make it the "national" World War I memorial and deprive the residents of D.C. of their memorial to their soldiers, see the November 10, 2011 article by Tom Howell of The Washington Times entitled "D.C. fights for World War I memorial."
