Jan. 14--RICHMOND -- As a college student, Algie T. Howell Jr. participated in a series of sit-ins protesting segregation at the lunch counter of S.S. Kresge, a store in downtown Norfolk that has long since closed.
"That was wrong," Howell said this week.
Norfolk wasn't Birmingham.There were no firehoses, no Eugene "Bull" Connor.But as Howell and his college classmates sat at the counter, eggs were broken over their heads.
Howell and his classmates did not lose their tempers.They didn't strike back.They had embraced the philosophy of the Rev. Martin Luther King, who advocated nonviolent resistance to segregation.
So it is with pride that Howell, now a member of the House of Delegates representing Norfolk and Chesapeake, will celebrate King's birthday on Monday by giving a speech on the House floor.
But Howell and others in the General Assembly's Black Caucus think the holiday is observed appropriately.With breakfasts, community service work, educational programs.
For Howell, it is a chance to educate young people.
"I think what is most disturbing now with a lot of young kids in school, especially young blacks, is that they don't know who Dr. King was or what he stood for," Howell said. » HB 2314, 1 Aug 2013 [cached]
Among those who also spoke were Secretary of Education Gerard Robinson, Delegate Jimmie Massie (R-72, Henrico), the patron of school choice bill HB 2314, and Delegate Algie Howell (D-90, Norfolk), one of the bill's co-patrons.
Delegate Howell: "No student should be left behind because they can't afford to attend a great school."

At today's news conference, a bill co-patron, Delegate Algie Howell (D-90, Norfolk), and a member of the Legislative Black Caucus who lived through the Civil Rights Era, gave us our Quote of the Day in support of the bill:
Delegate Howell noted his personal experience: His two grandchildren left public school to attend Saint Patrick Catholic School in Norfolk. When his son-in-law was transferred to Indiana, the children enrolled in a public school and were tested.

Unchain Your News | Virginia Considers Restrictions on Dog Chaining, 12 Dec 2006 [cached]
Algie T. Howell Jr., a Democratic delegate from Norfolk, will introduce a bill in the General Assembly next month that would make it illegal for pet owners to chain their dogs for more than three hours a day.
The state of California passed a similar law in September.
"Chaining a dog is not only inhumane," Howell said, "but, in my view, makes the dog more aggressive.
