  1. It is wonderful to see the the Rolark legacy has continued through the Washington Informer. Mr. Calvin Rolark and Mrs. Rolark were an amazing example of what God had destined to lift up people. I met both of them in the early 80’s when I resided in Ward 5 and was involved in community advocacy with Councilman Harry Thomas, Sr., and DC school board member, Angie Corley. During that time, as a single mom (3 children), the Rolark couple assisted me with many available opportunities for residents in the DC area. Through their newspaper informing, providing resources, and especially during the Christmas Holidays; the couple provided gifts (toys) to children. They loved children. Mr. Rolark would play Santa Claus. I am a former student of missionary training under the late Nannie Helen Burroughs (NHB) founder of the National Trade and Professional School for women and girls. The first Black vocational boarding school. She too was a pioneer with an objective to lift up God’s people. I saw in the 8-4-22 newspaper, “Words to Live By”, NHB. Thank you editor for continuing to support their values for people; all people.
