RAHALL REPORT  READACROSS AMERICA , / By Congressman NiekRahall One of my favorite things to do throughout the year is visiting the wonderful schools across Southern West Virginia and reading to the many young minds that sit in excited anticipation, waiting on a book's next line, and fully engrossing themselves in a good story. If you've ever shared a book with a young one, you know the pleasure this small but meaningful act can bring to a child, as well as to yourself. According to the National Center for Education Statistics, only 53 percent of children, ages three to five., are read to daily by someone close. Not only are children being deprived of a chance to enhance their reading skills and future success rate in schools, but parents and families members are missing out on an opportunity to connect with their children and become a'key ingredient in their child's education. Reading is a valuable lesson that can be encouraged early, supported, and sustained. A substantial commitment from parents, older siblings, and other caring adults is required to read to a child on a daily basis. The effort may be great, but so are the rewards, One child's life can be immeasurably brightened through books. In an effort to encourage more adults to spend more time reading with children, the National Ecucation Association (NEA) lau'nched the first Read Across America day in 1998. On March 3rd, early age. It also reminds us that everyone can play a role in a child's development. A few minutes a day can mean a world of difference in a kid's future. I hav e been a longtime supporter of educational organizations , in an effort to spotligh t the increasing learning demands placed on the youth of our Nation and their parents and teachers. Currently, I am spearheading the "Student Bill of Rights," which will ensure that every student can have access to the fundamentals of learning, including instruction from a highly qualified teacher, rigorous academic standards, small class sizes, up-to- date facilities and textbooks, state- of-the-art libraries, updated computers, and qualified school counselors. I am also supporting the Rural Education Achievement Program (REAP) request for full funding, which received $169 million 'this year, well below the $300 million it requested, in order to ensure the unique needs of small and rural schools districts are met. Our support for our children's learning must never falter. And, we must continue to support programs and efforts that educate and enrich our children's lives. Read Across America is just one of those endeavors. Each family can begin developing tomorrow's leaders early, with something as simple as a nightly book. The stronger our children's reading skills are today, the better prepared they will be for Read Across America will mark its the challenges they will most surely sixth year of celebrating reading. . face tomorrow. NEA's Read Across America is one U.S. Rep. Nick Rahall (D-WV) program that reminds us that our represents West Virginia's 3rd chi]dren's learning begins at an District. Rewards of Sacrifice Mann Family Achiew 00ment and Recognitii m Dinner A surprise dinner was held for Brendon, Bethany, Bria Mann, Von, members ofJoyce E. Mann and the Lisa, Chase, Chelsea Woodson, In the Librarp By David M. Kinchen Photographer H. C, Anderson Recorded Delta City's Black Elite Reviewed by David M. Kinchen Long before white photographers from the North descended on the deep South to document.the civil rights movement of the 1950s and 1960s, professional photographer Henry Clay Anderson used his press camera to produce striking images of the black middle class of the thriving city of Greenville, Miss. Some 130 of Anderson's photographs from 1948, when he opened his studio to 1978, when he retired, constitute the nucleus of Separate, but Equal: The Mississippi Photographs of Henry Clay Anderson (Public Affairs, 160 pages,  $35 00). In addition to photographing societyevents and life milestones, Anderson (1911 - 1998) was the only photographer willing to document the murder of a black minister in 1955, the year Emmett Till was murdered in another part of the bloody state of Mississippi. Events like this and the Montgomery bus boycott prpmpted northern photographersand journalists to document the plight of the poor blacks in the South, resulting in neglect of more affluent black residents. Similarly, the photographers of the Farm Security Administration, Project in the 1930s and early 1940s, concentrated on poor blacks and whites. Greenville is on the Mississippi River, about midway between Memphis and Natchez. It's a bustling city of more than 50,000 in the heart of the legendary Mississippi Delta. When Anderson was running his photo studio, it also had a thriving black middle class that, like the city's whites, wanted a documentary record of milestones like weddings, funerals, proms, beauty contests and even the purchase of a new car or--in a memorable photo included in this volume--a shiny new Harley-Davidson full-dress motorcycle with its proud owner and his female companion. Anderson, born in Nitta Yuma, Miss., not far Greenville, served in the U.S. Army in World War II and studied photography in Baton Rouge, La. under the G. I. Bill of Rights He relates how he was interested in photography as a child and knew he wanted to make it his career. He worked with large-format cameras like Speed Graphics that produced 4 inch-by-5-inch negatives of great sharpness. Anderson's work was rediscovered by a New York filmmaker with roots in Greenville's black elite, Shawn Wilson. Searching for a family photograph, he discovered Anderson's work and interviewed the photographer not long before Anderson's death in 1998. Working with Clifton L. Taulbert, the author of Once Upon a Time When We Were Colored, who was born and reared near Greenville, Wilson found it an easy task to convince the savvy folks at Public Affairs Press to produce the book as it we have it today. Wilson and Taulbert contribute essays, including a brief autobiographical essay by the talented Mr. Anderson. In addition, Mary Panzer contributes an insightful essay on the events of the murder of the Rev. George Lee'in the town of Belzoni near Greenville on May 8, 1955. H. C. Anderson was the only photographer willing to document the crime that claimed his friend. One can only imagine the dangers facing Anderson as he went about photographing Lee's car and the porch he crashed into after he was shot and killed. The photos were published in the magazine Jet. The book is properly indexed, something we reviewers can't take for granted these days, and is printed in Italy on coated paper that reveals the quality of the photos. Separate, But Equa] is an insider's glimpse into a world that has been sadly neglected by photojournalists. It belongs on the shelves of anyone interested in photography and recent American history. I look forward to an additional book or two displaying Anderson's wonderful photographs. He left behind thousands of negatives. NOTICE OF GED TEST THAT BLESSINGS MAY SHIN late Robert L. Mann.
