One never hears of cherry gluts. Apples, yes. Citrus, also. There can even be too many pears. But cherries? Smack dab in the middle of cherry season, bang in cherry country, there are never more cherries than takers. Cherry trees are such finicky plants, the fruit are so tricky to pick and, once plucked, so very perishable, that cherry season is like no other--more fleeting than summer, as compelling as a perfectly sunny day. Sweet cherry season, that is.

On Jubilee Day, the first Sunday of the year, the day on which African Americans celebrate the signing of the document that set them free, 12-year-old Kristian Huling quoted Frederick Douglass to the adults in her congregation. "We still live, and while there is life, there is hope. The fact that we have endured wrong hardship which would have destroyed any other race ought to strengthen our faith in ourselves and our future."

As a young girl, Sophia Williams listened to her grandfather's stories of life as a slave. He told her how some blacks wept and clung to their masters out of loyalty after Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation. In the eyes of 16-year-old Melanie Culver, that era is the stuff of history books, although she was aware of the proclamation as "the first political move in the black struggle for freedom and equality."

As choirs sang rousing gospel hymns and audience members clapped and swayed Sunday, the San Fernando Valley chapter of the NAACP celebrated its annual Jubilee Day, rejoicing over gains toward racial equality, while exhorting listeners about strides still to be made. A Scripture reading urged listeners to "make a joyful noise unto the Lord," and the advice seemed to be taken to heart.

For African Americans who observe it, Jubilee Day is Independence Day, commemorating Jan. 1, 1863, when President Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation, the document that freed the slaves. Dr. Benjamin F. Chavis Jr., executive director of the NAACP, which created the holiday about 15 years ago, hammered home that point Sunday as he spoke to a group of about 75 people who attended the 15th annual Jubilee Day celebration at the Greater Community Missionary Baptist Church.
