JUDE LAW has been tapped to play a young Dumbledore in the Warner Bros. sequel to “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.”
David Yates is directing the follow-up to last year’s “Harry Potter” spinoff Jack
Conklin Elite Jersey
 , which is slated to hit theaters Nov. 16, 2018.
The first film’s central foursome — Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Alison Sudol and Dan Fogler — are also all set to return for the sequel,
featuring a script by J.K. Rowling. Unlike the initial movie’s New York City
setting, the follow-up takes place in Paris and Watford, England.
Law’s casting puts him opposite Johnny Depp, who was revealed to be the infamous wizard Gellert Grindelwald in the first film. Dumbledore and
Grindelwald were friends when they were teens, but grew apart after Dumbledore
suffered a devastating family loss. Grindelwald then grew into one of the most
powerful dark wizards in history.
“Dumbledore fell in love with Grindelwald, and that added to his horror when Grindelwald showed himself to be what he was,” Rowling has said. In the sequel,
“you will see Dumbledore as a younger man and quite a troubled man. We’ll see
him at that formative period of his life.”
The first “Fantastic Beasts” movie — which kicked off a five-film spinoff series — grossed US$813 million at the box office in 2016. Rowling, David
Heyman, Steve Kloves and Lionel Wigram are producing the second film, with Neil
Blair, Rick Senat and Danny Cohen as executive producers.
Law is next set to appear in Guy Ritchie’s “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword” and Brady Corbet’s musical drama “Vox Lux.”
Charles McIlwain, a noted math teacher and school administrator died recently after a valiant fight against cancer. The lives that he touched in Roosevelt,
N.Y. resonated through the many tributes that were shared during his home going
service. McIlwain always inspired his students to strive to be the best they
could be.

He focused on students understanding core subjects, especially math and science. Architecture is an area that blends both of these subjects and
while this is a lucrative industry, it still remains a challenge for African
American architects. However, the shoulders that these architects stand on today
began with exceptional mentors such as McIlwain and are reinforced by architects
who paved the way, many of whom have long been forgotten.

According to Jackie Craven in About, there were only about 60 registered African American
architects in 1930 and a number of them helped build the United States despite
facing enormous social and economic barriers. According to the U.S. Bureau of
Labor Statistics (2005), of the 100,000 registered architects in the United
States, there are approximately 1500 that are African American.

The 1930s is a significant period for African American architects because it was the
period known as the Harlem Renaissance where art and culture were thriving in
the Harlem community and nationwide people of color were making strides in
various disciplines, including architecture.

Architects of note included three who are known as the ?Invisible Trio? because their vision and
accomplishments are most often not reflected in the annals of architecture to
inspire future African American architects.

They include Paul R. Williams (1884 1980), an architect who was known as the ?Architect for the Stars,?
designing homes for movie legends and entertainers including Frank Sinatra,
Lucille Ball, Tyrone Power, William ?Bojangles? Robinson and media mogul William
Paley. His designs are also a part of the landscape of the Los Angeles
International Airport and many of its surrounding beautiful residences. His
commission to design the home of a major car manufacturer further advanced his
prominence among architects of his day.

Hilyard Robinson (1899 1986), an architect whose work was regarded as a blend between European Internationalism
and American Modernism, focused on providing safe and sanitary public housing
for working class families that included functionality and artistry. The famous
Langston Terrace Dwellings in Washington, D.C. that he designed (with Paul
Williams) were built in 1936 and, in 1987, listed on the National Registration
of Historic Places. He also designed the Army training base of the famous
Tuskegee Airmen.

Julian Abele (1881 1950), who was known for not signing his work, but his expertise was identified in his architectural drawings for
institutions including Duke University and recognized as detailed and exquisite
works of art. He was the first African American architect to graduate from the
University of Pennsylvania?s School of Architecture and was involved in, among
other projects, the presentation drawings for The Philadelphia Museum of Art,
although the majority of the credit has been given elsewhere.

These African American architects and others brought their own brand to their designs
and left a legacy that should be honored and remembered. So, the next time you
land in Los Angeles International Airport, or drive near by the Philadelphia
Museum of Art or see the historic Langston Terrace Dwellings in Washington, D.C.
remember that an African American architect was a part of that

Also, remember valiant educators like McIlwain, an architect in is his own right, who designed programs and inspired young students to think
outside the box and to build careers that also stand the test of time.
