The Hero Who Challenged Stop-And-Frisk Is Everything Donald Trump Is Not
Huffington Post - 5 months
It’s a historical irony that Louis Stokes’s autobiography is being published now, just as Donald Trump has become the most prominent politician in recent memory to champion aggressive stop-and-frisk policing. Stokes is the national treasure who first challenged stop-and-frisk before the Supreme Court. His law career was followed by three decades in Congress as Ohio’s first black representative. He died last year at age 90, only days after finishing work on his memoir. “How interesting it is that a case my father argued decades ago has so much relevance today,” said his daughter, Lori Stokes, an anchor for New York’s ABC7 and the first black broadcaster to appear on MSNBC. “I wish he was here to address it. I wish he was here to help Mr. Trump understand that case.” The contrasts between Trump and Stokes are fascinating and worth exploring, emblematic as they are of the discussions about race, poverty and privilege that have surfaced in this year’s presidential campaign. ...

Former Mayor Dinkins Honored Here
Bronx News - about 4 years
By Michael Horowitz BRONX, NEW YORK, February 20- David Dinkins, the city's only black mayor, was center stage at the borough's Black History Month celebration, which Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr., held in Co-op City's Dreiser Loop Community Center auditorium. Dinkins, the guest of honor at the celebration that an estimated 200 Bronxites attended, stressed that the African-American trailblazers who came before him, most notably the Rev. Jesse Jackson and Manhattan Borough President Percy Sutton, set the stage for his election as the city's first and only black mayor in 1989. The former mayor stressed that he would not have been elected as the city's mayor if it had not been for the increased voter registration of blacks that was spurred by Rev. Jackson's presidential candidacy and the ground work that former Borough President Sutton laid during his tenure in office. Fittingly, Lori Stokes, the anchor for ABC-TV Eyewitness News, the daughter of former Rep. Louis Stokes, and the ...

John Legend Headlines UJA Benefit
Forward - over 4 years
“I’m Lori Stokes!… I don’t have to yell!” the WABC-TV ‘Eyewitness News’ reporter shouted on June 6 while in the cavernous Capitale. Five hundred guests in the fields of real estate, finance, fashion and entertainment had gathered for a UJA-Federation of New York benefit, and Stokes fought to be heard above the echoing din. She told the crowd, “This morning, on ‘Eyewitness News’ at our 6 o’clock hour, I spoke about UJA-Federation… and it is not exclusive to the Jewish community, because where there is a need, UJA-Federation is able and willing to give.” She introduced event chair Lisa Silverstein, who is a newly appointed UJA-Federation board member and a senior vice president of Silverstein Properties. Silverstein announced that the chic crowd had contributed $500,000 to the $137 million that the UJA-Federation raised in its annual campaign. “I don’t care what world you live in, that’s a number!” she exclaimed.
