The Founding of the IECAAC

Hardy L. Brown

A few weeks ago, I decided to accompany my wife, Assembly Member Cheryl Brown to the installation ceremony of Dr. Reggie Woods as the new leader of Inland Empire Concerned African-American Churches. I mainly went because of the long relationship our family has had with Dr. John and Willa Mae Woods, Reggie’s parents. We used to babysit the Woods’ children back in the sixties, so it was like seeing one of our own children taking the leadership of an organization that I remember getting started during the height of the police shooting death of Tyisha Miller.

My memory was stirred after Pastor Raymond “Ray” Turner went over the history of IECAAC’s origins. I will not go into the long history of the shooting in Riverside that spilled over to San Bernardino after the sheriff hired one of the officer’s after he was fired from the Riverside Police Department. But, as he described, “on the rainy day of February 21, 2000 over 750 members of IECAAC braved the rain to demonstrate their objection to the decision to hire this officer after he killed this young African-American female in Riverside. I decide to go into the Black Voice News, the only paper other than the LA Times to cover that event.”

I want to congratulate Reggie for stepping up to lead the great organization and offer him my full support in whatever way I can.
