At 20 years old, R. Donahue Peebles was a penniless college dropout, he told an audience of hundreds Sunday, as the keynote speaker during the 30th commencement of Baltimore's Sojourner-Douglass College. Roughly seven years later, he was a multimillionaire real estate investor. And today, at 50, he's in the top 10 on Forbes' list of wealthiest African-Americans. His Florida-based company, Peebles Corp., is the largest African-American-owned real estate development business in the country, with a $4 billion portfolio and offices in Washington and Las Vegas.

As Dr. Joanne Wilson emerged from her San Juan hotel last month, she spied a young woman striding toward her in a dusty pink T-shirt emblazoned with the words "United Colors of Benetton." Just like that, the tropical beauty around the doctor faded, and she found herself transported back 13 years. The ocean, the sun, the sand, all of it was replaced by the vision of a dingy convenience store in Raleigh, N.C., and the crumpled body of her 33-year-old baby brother. As anyone in grief knows, there's no way to tell what associations will spark new spasms of sorrow.

With the passing of a multitalented artist and public figure like Ossie Davis, it's tempting to recall his most solemn accomplishments as an orator, an activist, a spokesman for the power of film and theater, a friend to Martin Luther King Jr. and eulogist of Malcolm X. But Davis was a virile and complex creative force who did sublime, engaging work as a popular entertainer. Whether acting in a Western called The Scalphunters (1968) or directing that milestone in soul cinema, Cotton Comes to Harlem (1970)

In 1971, I dubbed Melvin Van Peebles' Sweet Sweetback's Baadasssss Song "a vile piece of ego-tripping from a black filmmaker who hopes (presumably by default) to become the `revolutionary' mass-media force of his people." And that's just what happened. Van Peebles, who directed, produced, wrote and scored the picture and also starred in it as a radicalized pimp, became, in film historian Donald Bogle's words, "a folk hero of black cinema." He positioned himself as the first filmmaker to tell a story from within black culture.
