Anthony House Announces Annual Birthday Luncheon Speaker
The Naonal Susan B. Anthony Museum & House recently announced its keynote speaker for the next Annual Susan B. Anthony Birthday Luncheon will be author, lecturer and historian Louise W. Knight. The luncheon will be held Wednesday, February 12, 2014 at the Rochester Riverside Convenon Center.Anthony House president and CEO Deborah L. Hughes said the theme of the 2014 luncheon is “Up and Doing.” She said it’s a subject Knight knows well, as she is the author of two biographies on Jane Addams, a prominent late 19th-century and early 20th-century acvist who worked to change public percepon and atudes about women.A friend of Susan B. Anthony, Addams is perhaps best known as the co-founder of Hull House, the naon’s rst selement house.Knight said she will focus on Addams’ and Anthony’s ideas about democracy, and how each of them put those ideas into acon; “up and doing,” for the causes they held dear.In addion to her Addams biographies, Knight’s wring has been published in the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, the Chicago Tribune, and on the Women’s Media Center website. She is also currently working on a book about 1830s women’s rights advocates and abolionists Angelina and Sarah Grimke.Knight had been a featured lecturer at the Chautauqua Instute last summer.The Susan B. Anthony Birthday Luncheon is held each year in mid-February to celebrate Susan B. Anthony’s Feb. 15 birthday, to honor contemporary women who connue her legacy, and to raise awareness around the educaon and inspiraon programs that take place at the Naonal Historic Landmark on Madison St.

Charges Dropped Against Three Teenagers Arrested While Waiting for Bus
Recently, the violence that has been happening in downtown Rochester has caused police ocers to begin arresng young adults on a regular basis; in this case, even if they are just waing to ride the bus.Three African-American teenagers will have charges of two counts of disorderly conduct against them dropped aer they said they were only waing to catch a bus downtown last Friday morning.“Aer reviewing the facts associated with these arrests, I have decided to dismiss the charges in the interest of  jusce,said District Aorney Sandra Doorley in a statement Tuesday.Seventeen-year-old Deaquon Carelock, and 16-year-olds Raliek Redd and Wan’Tauhjs Weathers, all basketball players, said they were waing for a bus to take them to a scrimmage when police asked them to leave the area.They told the police ocer, who subsequently arrested them; they were simply following direcons from their coach.“We tried to tell them that we were waing for the bus,” Weathers said. “We weren’t catching a city bus; we were catching a yellow bus. He didn’t care. He arrested us anyways.”The police department emailed a statement saying the young men were arrested at 8:43 a.m. by a police ocer assigned to a post at N. Clinton Ave. and E. Main St.“(The ocer)…observed a group of individuals congregang on the sidewalk in front of store on East Main St., obstrucng pedestrian trac, and the entrance to the store. RPD had received prior complaints from the proprietor of the store about persons loitering in front of the store, making it dicult for persons to enter and exit, and about ghts in front of the store. The ocer gave several orders to the individuals to disperse, but they did not comply with these orders. As a result, three persons were arrested for disorderly conduct, for obstrucng pedestrian trac, and for congregang with other persons in a public place and refusing to comply with a lawful order of the police to disperse.”Carelock said he told the police to believe them.“When we were all in handcus, he looked through our bags and seen all our basketball stu, so you know we’re not lying,” Carelock stated. “We’re all not down there with basketball stu,  just chilling.Police Chief Sheppard, who recently announced his plan to rere at the end of the year, said he believes the arrests are jusable, and there is possibly more informaon behind the reasoning of the arrests.He said, however, he does respect Doorley’s decision not to prosecute the young athletes.Several community residents, leaders and ocials have lent their support to the young athletes including Rochester school board members, parents and the boys’ coach.“I’m very concerned about a paern of young people, especially young people of color, being mis– abused by police authority,” Rochester City School Board Member Mary Adams said to WHEC.Jacob Sco, the athletes’ coach, said he tried to explain to the police ocer that the boys were doing as he had told them, however they were sll arrested. Sco also said all young men downtown are not there loitering or starng trouble.Newly-elected Mayor Lovely Warren said she isn’t sure what happened, but she wonders why the police ocer made no eort to conrm the teenagers’ story before they were arrested.
