Assembly Resolution No. 171
 
BY: M. of A. Fall
 
        MEMORIALIZING Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to proclaim
        March  2019,  as  Black Angels Month in the State of
        New York, recognizing the courage and dedication  of
        the  Black  Angels  who answered the call of nursing
        duty
 
  WHEREAS, It is incumbent upon the people of the State of New York to
recognize  and  acknowledge  those  within  our  midst  who  have   made
significant contributions to the quality of life therein; and
 
  WHEREAS,  From  time  to  time  this  Legislative Body takes note of
certain extraordinary individuals  it  wishes  to  recognize  for  their
valued contributions to the success and progress of society and publicly
acknowledge their endeavors which have enhanced the basic humanity among
us all; and
 
  WHEREAS,  Attendant  to  such  concern,  and in full accord with its
long-standing traditions, it is the sense of this  Legislative  Body  to
memorialize  Governor  Andrew  M. Cuomo to proclaim March 2019, as Black
Angels Month in the State of  New  York,  recognizing  the  courage  and
dedication  of  the  Black Angels who answered the call of nursing duty;
and
 
  WHEREAS,  The  Black  Angels  were  so  named  due  to  their   bold
willingness to provide desperately needed care to tuberculosis patients;
and
 
  WHEREAS,  The  Black Angels and their families became active members
of the NAACP, neighborhood churches, and community groups;  they  became
founding  members  of the Lincoln Hospital Alumni Association, the Urban
League Guild, and the Women's Civic and Political Union; and
 
  WHEREAS, The Black Angels are comprised of approximately 300 nurses,
including Stiversa A. Bethel, Martha Lyles, Jane Price,  Mamie  Shumate,
Flossie  Evans,  Georgia  Hayden,  Annie  Bostick,  Kate Gillespie, Edna
Sutton Ballard, Americus Sutton, Virginia  Allen,  Viola  Anderson,  and
Annie B.  Smith; and
 
  WHEREAS, In 1984, the first health care museum in New York State was
named for Black Angel Stiversa A. Bethel; and
 
  WHEREAS,  The  Black  Angels  have  played a significant role in the
development of new drugs called isoniazids, which aid in the  arrest  of
tuberculosis and in subsequent recovery; and
 
  WHEREAS,  It  is  the custom of this Legislative Body that those who
enhance the well-being and vitality of their community and have shown  a
long  and  sustained  commitment to excellence certainly have earned the
recognition and applause of all the citizens of this great Empire State;
now, therefore, be it
 
  RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its  deliberations  to
memorialize  Governor  Andrew  M. Cuomo to proclaim March 2019, as Black
Angels Month in the State of New York; and be it further
 
  RESOLVED,  That  a  copy  of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be
transmitted to The Honorable Andrew M. Cuomo, Governor of the  State  of
New York.
