Minority Issues

[Picture] Scientologists in Clearwater have been involved in issues of minority rights and awareness including the celebration of Native American Spirituality and the celebration of African American Achievement, both of which were held at the Church’s Fort Harrison Hotel. The Tribute to African American Achievement was sponsored by Ebony Awakening, a group founded in 1982 by Scientologist and legendary concert/jazz performer, composer and educator, Amanda Ambrose, who currently calls Clearwater her home.

Ebony Awakening has co-produced the annual “TRIBUTE TO AFRICAN AMERICAN ACHIEVEMENT — COMMUNITY SERVICE AWARDS” and banquet at the Fort Harrison with the Association for Better Living and Education and the Church of Scientology, to highlight and underscore the abundance of excellence which exists in Black communities. Past award winners include:

MUHAMMAD ABDUR RAHIM, former president of the North Greenwood Association
