HUMAN SERVICES PROGRAMS...One of the
numerous services provided by the Neighbor
'hood Center Department of the City of Charlotte
is office space for human service agencies. One
such agency, which is housed at the Alexander
Street Center, is the Disabled Handicapped
Services of Charlotte. Disabled-Handicapped
Services, supported by the Mecklenburg County
Veteran's Council and Disabled American Vete
rans, provides hospital-type equipment such as
beds, wheelchairs, portable commodes, walkers,

EBONY PERFORMANCE...The 1967 Class of

the play "Ceremonies in Dark Old Men" at the
high school's auditorium, Saturday night, Au

Group and Company consisting of Melvin
McCullough, Willie J. Stradford Jr., Sandra
McMullen, David Wilson, Arnold Haynes, Harold
Dew Jr., and June B. Worthy. The group was
formed in November of 1975. It, was the
concensus of the founders of the group, Willie J.
Stradford Jr., Sandra McMullen and Nathaniel
Rorie, that although Charlotte was a city with
several theatres, the opportunities for competent
and talented minority actors here was extremely
limited. In an effort to provide a theatrical outlet
for the minority talent in the Charlotte-Mecklen
burg area, the Ebony Group was formed.
The play itself is a serious, forceful and
moving drama about a black family and their
struggle to change their way of life. The author,
Lonnie Elder III, made the human inter-relation
between all of the characters extremely essen
tial to the body and blood of the story. The
ingredients entwined with the adroit skills of
director, Nathaniel Rorie, helped to bring about
bewilderment and victory for all involved in the
eternal struggle for survival.
