““Freedom, Justice and Equality for All, Love of God and Our Fellow Man; Doing All the Good We Can for Our Community," Andrew J. Smitherman (1883-1961). The Purpose of the Buffalo Empire Star is to keep the African-American community informed about past, current and future events to continue onward in the struggle for freedom, justice and equality in the spirt of the underground railroad pioneers.

Birthday wishes to Bro. Burgin

Bro Charles Burgin

Brother Charles Burgin has been at the helm locally, garnering interest in his youth mentoring project that he hopes to see realized in the Buffalo Public Schools or a community organization. His many interests include District Parent Coordinating Council, the East Side Redevelopment Task Force, and the Mentor on-line program to name a few. Bro. Charles Burgin is an excellent public speaker, dedicating his life to better the life chances of Black male youths through his advocacy of a mentoring partnership program. Bro Burgin expertise not only comes from his advocacy of mentoring program to help youth living in communities where violence is pervasive but tragically in his family, the personal experience of losing a love one his brother inspires him to communicate a message of peace through mentoring for troubled youths. Bro Burgin is a columnist at the Buffalo Challenger newspaper.  If you would like to help Bro. Burgin with his youth mentoring project  contact him at his e-mail address:bromaninc@gmail.com
