Stan Chase Nov. 30, 1931 – Feb. 24, 2022


Our friend Stan Chase died on February 24, 2022. Mr. Chase was an amazing person of incredible accomplishments. He will be greatly missed. 

Stan Chase Nov. 30, 1931 – Feb. 24, 2022

Stanislaus (Stan) Chase was born in Westminster, Maryland, on November 30, 1931, to the late Inez Gibson. The “thin man with the kind face” was called home to be with the Lord, sitting in his favorite chair, on Thursday, February 24, 2022.

Stan attended Robert Moton School in Westminster, Maryland, and graduated in 1948. Stan graduated from Maryland State College (now University of Maryland Eastern Shore) in 1952 with a Bachelor of Arts degree.  Stan served in the Army during the Korean War and was honorably discharged at the rank of Sergeant in 1954. Stan was extremely “Proud” of his military service to his country.

Stan completed graduate studies at the University of Maryland, and Morgan State College (University), and would later receive his Master of Arts from Towson State College (University) in 1970.

Stan began his career as an educator in 1955 as a Physical Education and Science teacher in Leonardtown, Maryland.  It was here that he met the love of his life, Anne Williams who preceded him in death. 

 Stan taught and coached at his alma mater Robert Moton Consolidated from 1957 to 1964. At the height of desegregation, Stan was transferred to Sykesville High School in 1964.  He is often credited by both African Americans and Caucasian Americans in the community as being the “reason school integration worked in Carroll County.” He was also deemed “the most popular guy in Carroll County with students and teachers.”

Sykesville High School became Sykesville Middle School in 1967. Stan continued as the Physical Education teacher and assumed other positions of increased responsibility including Health Education Specialist, Guidance Counselor, and ultimately was promoted to the position of Vice Principal.  He retired from Carroll County Schools in 1995.

Stan and Anne were married in 1957, and were blessed with their son, Bryant Gordon Chase in 1959. Even though Stan had only one child, because of his many years as an educator, coach, and memberships in multiple local and national organizations, and church memberships, numerous individuals considered him a second father, mentor, and trusted advisor.  

He had a sharp mind and was very knowledgeable about history and sports.  He read the local Baltimore Sun and AFRO American Newspapers, and kept abreast of local, national, and international news.

Stan’s love of sports started with participation, but grew to coaching, officiating, and he spent countless hours of fanatic-level viewing with his son Bryant.  In 1961 he coached the Robert Moton High School Basketball Team to win the state championship.  This was only the second Carroll County School basketball team to ever win a state title.  

Stan officiated many state championship football games as a member of the Maryland Board of Football Officials, and the Central Maryland Football Officials. He continued to officiate multiple sports well into his eighties.  

Stan was inducted into the Carroll County Sports Hall of Fame in 2002, and the gymnasium at the Robert Moton High School Museum is also dedicated in his name and honor.

Stan was a generous, selfless giver of his time and money to support charities, the community (including the Grove Park Neighborhood Association), family, friends, and neighbors. 

He sponsored or supported many youth-development and scholarship programs through his affiliations with local and national organizations, including being a volunteer and mentor for the MESA (Math Engineering Science Achievement) Program which is hosted by the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory. 

He also served for over 20 years as an election official poll volunteer for District #5, at School #224, Grove Park Elementary School in Baltimore City, and as a Regular Election Judge from 2010 to 2016.  Stan was a dependable, conscientious Election Judge that made sure accuracy and ethics were adhered to at polling station.  He spent hours upon hours making sure the polling station was conducted in a professional manner and that respect was bestowed to every person who entered the polls to vote. 

He was known for his kindness and attention to detail.  He assisted many persons in the Grove Park Community who needed to be transported to the polls due to physical challenges and mobility issues.

Stan enjoyed spending time with family and friends, which includes, working at the Reese Firehouse Carnival, Cruising the Caribbean, singing in the church choir, playing and coaching softball, and he never met a line dance he wouldn’t try!  He was always a consummate gentleman, and he was quiet, but, when he spoke, he had a word of encouragement and knowledge for all who encountered him.

Stan leaves to celebrate his life: his son, Bryant Chase, wife Kimberly; his brother, George Gibson; his grandchildren, Derek Chase (Wife Destinee), Brittany Chase (Husband Rico), and Joshua Chase; seven great-grandchildren; two sisters-in-law, Evelyn Marie Wein (husband Larry), and Jean Barbara Jamison; numerous cousins, nieces, and nephews; a host of other relatives, friends, neighbors, fraternity brothers, Prince Hall Masonic family, church families, former students and co-workers, and his Grove Park neighbors.
Stan was a proud and distinguished member of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc., and the Free Masons.  

His journey with Alpha Phi Alpha began with the Delta Nu at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore where he served as a chartering member.  He joined the Delta Lambda Graduate Chapter in Baltimore City where he held several leadership positions including Chapter Vice President.  He is a Founder of the Rho Tau Lambda Graduate Chapter serving the Greater Baltimore Metropolitan Area, which was chartered on November 8, 2008.

Stan also held many positions of leadership in multiple Houses of the Free Masons. These include:

Past Master (PM) James E. Stewart Lodge No. 49
Past High Priest (PHP), King David No 1, Holy Royal Arch Mason, Baltimore, MD.
Past Thrice Illustrious Master (PTIM), Omega Council No. 2, Royal and Select Masters, Baltimore, MD
Past Eminent Commander (PEC), St. Joseph Commandery No. 2, Havre de Grace, MD
Past Commander in Chief (PCIC), Western Maryland Consistory #270
Past Potentate, ANWAR Temple #219, Rockville, MD

NPR: How Black activists used lynching souvenirs to expose American violence


NPR: How Black activists used lynching souvenirs to expose American violence

 Please be aware that although this content comes from NPR – it is nevertheless really disturbing.

 From 1880 to 1968, over 4000 African Americans were lynched in the United States. Like picnics or parties, lynchings were often carnival-like events commemorated through photos and postcards. This film tells the story of how Black activists subverted these souvenirs, which were celebrations of white supremacy, in the fight against lynching. Executive produced by Stanley Nelson and Marcia Smith. A Doc NYC Short Shortlist selection.

 February is Black History Month in the U.S., and this year's theme is Black Health and Wellness. NPR has compiled a list of stories, music performances, podcasts and other content that chronicles the Black American experience.

 For her new documentary, Lynching Postcards: Token Of A Great Day, filmmaker Christine Turner examined hundreds of black-and-white photographs that show how organized these events were and included chilling messages that shared the experience with those who weren't there. The postcard above shows the crowd at the lynching of Henry Smith in Paris, Texas, in 1893. Photo by J.L. Mertins/Library of Congress

 Photos showing the lynchings of African Americans in the 19th and early 20th century are some of the most troubling records of the racist history of the United States.

 But these black-and-white photographs are what filmmaker Christine Turner chose to focus on for her new documentary, Lynching Postcards: 'Token Of A Great Day'.

 Turner examined hundreds of these pictures and primarily focused on the ones that people who attended these lynchings sent as postcards to family and friends.

 Find the YouTube here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rWMZlQ281gM&t=2s

 As the film opens, the first postcard people see is an image of a Black man hanging from a tree, but it's zoomed in enough that all that can be seen of him are his dangling feet. The focus then becomes the white men standing behind him, looking directly at the camera, with some smiling.

THE LIMITS WITH JAY WILLIAMS

Brian Flores on Taking a Stand Against the NFL

February 3, 2022 • Brian Flores is not messing around. The former Miami Dolphins head coach was fired last month, and had his eyes set on the top job with the New York Giants. But a misdirected text from New England Patriots general manager Bill Belichick convinced Flores, who is Black and Latino, that the hiring process was rigged against him, and that race was a major factor. He responded to the NFL by filing a class-action lawsuit on Tuesday. He was one of only three Black head coaches in the NFL at the time of his firing, in a league that has a majority of Black players. The lawsuit accuses the league of systemic racism and discriminatory hiring practices. It's made for a whirlwind 48 hours for Flores, who did not come to the decision to take legal action lightly. And it's arguably a louder stand than when Colin Kaepernick took his knee and paid the price. In this episode of The Limits, host Jay Williams sits down with Flores to talk about the change he hopes to inspire in the NFL, and the sacrifices he's willing to make to see that change take flight.

McDaniel hosts Black History Month Convocation Feb. 16 featuring Rev. Tutu


McDaniel hosts Black History Month Convocation Feb. 16 featuring Rev. Tutu

McDaniel College has announced the inaugural Black History Month Convocation featuring human rights activist Rev. Nontombi Naomi Tutu

The hour-long event takes place Wed., Feb. 16, at 6 p.m. (doors open at 5:45 p.m.), in WMC Alumni Hall 2 College Hill, Westminster, Md. and is free and open to the public. A livestream via Zoom will also be available through advance registration.

Welcome remarks will be provided by McDaniel College President Julia Jasken. Richard M. Smith, associate provost for equity and belonging at McDaniel, will introduce Rev. Tutu.

Rev. Tutu shares her experiences as a human rights advocate as well as growing up as the daughter of the late Desmond Tutu in apartheid South Africa.

Rev. Nontombi Naomi Tutu is the third child of the late Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu, who died Dec. 26, 2021, at the age of 90, and Nomalizo Leah Tutu. She was born in South Africa and has divided her adult life between South Africa and the United States.

The challenges of growing up Black and female in apartheid South Africa have inspired her activism for human rights. Those experiences taught her that our whole human family loses when we accept situations of oppression, and how the teaching and preaching hate and division injure us all.

She started her public speaking as a college student at Berea College in Kentucky in the 1970s and her professional experience ranges from being a development consultant in West Africa to coordinating programs on race and gender, as well as gender-based violence prevention education at the African Gender Institute at the University of Cape Town. She is a consultant for the Spiritual Alliance to Stop Intimate Violence (SAIV) and the Foundation for Hospices in Sub-Saharan Africa (FHSSA).

This inaugural Black History Month Convocation was founded by McDaniel College President Julia Jasken as a new signature event to be held annually at McDaniel in recognition of Black History Month. This annual event will provide an opportunity to hear from prominent individuals working towards social justice and racial equity.

Welcome remarks will be provided by President Jasken and Richard M. Smith, associate provost for equity and belonging at McDaniel, will introduce Rev. Tutu.
