Reverend Jerry A. Moore, Jr.

Religious leader Jerry Alexander Moore, Jr. was born on June 12, 1918, in Minden, Louisiana, to Mae Dee Moore and Jerry Alexander Moore, Sr. Moore graduated from high school at Webster Parrish Training School in 1936 before receiving his B.A. degree from Morehouse College in 1940. Moore then received his B.D. degree from Howard University in 1943, the same year the NAACP sponsored student sit-ins on Howard University’s campus.

In 1946, Moore became the pastor of the Nineteenth Street Baptist Church in Washington, D.C. In 1957, Moore earned his M.A. degree from Howard University, and one year later became the University’s Baptist chaplain. In 1969, Moore temporarily left the ministry to become a city council member in Washington, D.C., where he served until 1984. During Moore’s term, he served as “Member-At-Large” for the council seat alongside District of Columbia Commissioner Walter E. Washington, Vice Chairman Sterling Tucker and Chairman Gilbert Hahn, Jr.

Moore co-founded the Conference of Minority Transportation Officials (COMTO) in 1971. This organization was created to provide a forum for senior level minority professionals in the transportation industry. After Moore left the Washington, D.C. City Council in 1984, he became the chaplain for the D.C. Detention Facility, an inmate detention center that offers programs in HIV/AIDS prevention, education and intervention services, individual and group counseling services, religious services, among other life skills development and religious skills.

In 1985, Moore became the executive secretary for the Home Mission Board at the National Baptist Convention (NBC) until 1997. During his time at NBC, he was nominated to be the United States Ambassador to Lesotho, a position previously held by Robert M. Smalley. In 1994, Moore ended his fifty year tenure as pastor of the Nineteenth Street Baptist Church.

Moore received numerous civic awards throughout his career including the Minority Transportation Officials’ Award, the Washington Area Contractors Award, the Capital City Rep Club Lincoln Award, and the NAACP service award.

Moore passed away on December 19, 2017 at age 99.

Jerry A. Moore, Jr. recalls serving on the Washington, D.C. city council
Reverend Jerry A. Moore, Jr. remembers Benjamin Mays' guidance
Transcript
Explain to me what, you were a member-at-large, explain what that entailed.$$Under the charter that [U.S.] Congress issued to the District of Columbia [Washington, D.C.], I might say, the charter giving the District limited home rule, two seats were reserved for minority parties. The Republican Party is a minority party in the District of Columbia. So, I ran to be a councilman-at-large. That's what it means. All over the city instead of a ward. By that time, I conceived politically. I had established enough identity and performed enough service in the District of Columbia, be known by a good percentage of the people everywhere. And, so, I ran on that platform that I wanted to be a council member-at-large. And, I won.$$Did you get much backlash from, since this is a Democratic city basically, from black who were Democrats?$$I got wonderful cooperation. Many of them changed their party to vote for me. That is in the primary. And, then they switched back so they could vote in their party in the final.$$What was some of the committees that you worked on as a council member?$$I was assigned to the committee on public works [Committee on Public Works and Transportation]. That's--and, I reminded there for the entire period of my council-matic activity. Public works included all the streets, all the alleys in the District of Columbia. It included the air, the water, the garbage, sewerage, everything that affects the environment I had that under by charge. Now, I was appointed. Centered also included transportation, I was appointed to the Metro board [Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority].$So, when you came (simultaneous)--$$(Simultaneous) No--you see, I was living in the president's house, Dr. Hubert [Charles Dubois Hubert] was acting president. He lived in the acting president's house which was on campus [of Morehouse College, Atlanta, Georgia]. The president [Samuel Howard Archer] had died [sic. resigned], and that house was vacant. And, they put me in there as a scholarship to watch the house and I lived there. The board of trustees called a new president, Dr. Benjamin Elijah Mays [Benjamin Mays]. And, he came to look at the house and I happened to be in the house when he came in there. And, he asked me, "What was I going to do?" When he ascertained that I was a college graduate. And, I told him that, I was not sure. That I thought the Lord had called me to preach and I wanted to go to a seminary. I didn't know one to go to and I was just sitting there trying to figure it out. And, he said, "What if I offer you a scholarship to come to school of religion at Howard University [Howard University School of Divinity, Washington, D.C.]?" I didn't even know there was a school of religion. That was the only and the best offer I had. So, I took him up on it. These rest is history.$$How long after you graduated did you, did it take you to get to Howard? Was that right away when you, after you met--?$$That was that fall.$$That fall, okay.

The Honorable Dorothy Brown

Attorney and certified public accountant Dorothy Brown grew up in a family of eight children and helped her family make ends meet as a young girl by picking cotton on the family farm. During high school, she continued to work, first as a housekeeper and later in a nutrition center for mothers on welfare. After high school, Brown attended Southern University in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, where she earned her B.A. in 1975, and became a CPA two years later. In 1981, she earned an M.B.A. from DePaul University in Chicago, Illinois, and returned to school in the 1990s to earn a law degree from Chicago-Kent College of Law in 1996.

Beginning her career as a CPA, Brown worked for Commonwealth Edison and Arthur Anderson & Company. From there, she was hired by the First National Bank of Chicago and later left to join the firm of Odell Hicks and Company. One of her clients at Odell Hicks was the Chicago Transit Authority, and within a few years, she was the general auditor there. While working with the CTA, Brown ran for treasurer of the city of Chicago and narrowly lost the election. Trying again in 2000, Brown ran for the clerk of the Circuit Court of Cook County and won. Brown still serves as clerk today for the largest circuit court in the world.

Brown has been active in a number of other areas throughout her professional career, having served as president of the National Women's Political Caucus of Greater Chicago and Lutheran Social Services of Illinois. She is also the founder and executive director of the Star Scholarship Fund. Her work, both civic and professional, has garnered her many awards, including the Women in History Excellence Award and the 1999 Women of the Year Award. Brown lives in Chicago, and has one daughter, Detris.
