O.L. “Sonny” Lawson: Co-owned the First Black Pharmacy in Denver, Co – The Radio Pharmacy

0 Posted by - March 11, 2022 - Black First, Black History, LATEST POSTS

Oglesvie L. “Sonny” Lawson was a co-owner of the Radio Pharmacy in Denver, Colorado. He was also known for his role as a district executive for the Democratic Party, a position he held for more than a decade. The Radio Pharmacy was located in Five Points at East 26th and Welton streets. The Radio Pharmacy was a successful business for more than 50 years.

Lawson was born in Denver on September 12, 1893. He grew up in West Denver,  where he attended Cheltenham Elementary and East Denver High School. After graduating high school, he studied at the Northwestern School of Pharmacy, graduating in 1913.

After completing his studies, Lawson returned to Denver and received his pharmacist’s license in 1919. At first, he worked for the Western Chemical Corporation and later was a clerk in the county assessor’s office. In 1923 he formed a partnership with Hulett A. Maxwell and opened the first black-owned pharmacy in Five Points at 2601 Welton Street.

Lawson often used his influence to help create jobs for African Americans. He made sure politicians followed up on their campaign promises.
On August 9, 1972, the park at 24th and Welton Streets became the first park in Denver to be dedicated to an African American – The Sonny Lawson Park. The park’s early history hosted Negro League games; it was the first ball field in Denver to do so. Oglesvie Lawson passed away July 14, 1969.

    Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    The Jewish people deny Jesus as their Messiah and have stated that their Messiah has been identified and is waiting to be revealed. They say this man will rule the world under a one world religion called “spiritualism”.

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him. On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple.

    The Bible says this false Messiah who seats himself in the Third Temple will be thee antichrist that will bring about the Great Tribulation, though the Jewish people believe he will bring about world peace. It will be a false peace for a period of time. You can watch interviews of Jewish Rabbi’s in Israel speaking of these things. They have their plans set in place. It is only years away!

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we need two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.
