Shantanett Sands, the niece and former housemate of Sybrina Fulton, works for Dr. Chavis at Education Online Services and was promoted December of 2012.

Education Online Services Corporation (EOServe Corp.) Announces Promotion of Shantanett L. Sands to Director of Faculty ServicesNew York, NY, December 5, 2012:  Education Online Services Corporation is proud to announce the well –deserved promotion of Shantanett L. Sands to Director of Faculty Services. 
 The press releases are the type you buy and have sent out in bulk, so who knows whether or not she even works for him - if not, they someone is covering something. Shantanett has taken down her photobucket account with the interesting videos and photos of Sybrina's birthday party, as well as all of her pictures on facebook.  Just sayin', odd.

Dr. Chavis lives in Florida, North Carolina, and New York.

He has a son, Benjamin Franklin Chavis III.  He was arrested in Sanford Florida three months prior to the killing of Trayvon Martin.  He was also in the Seminole County jail around the same time George was.  All of this can be verified through a search.
UPDATE: Benjamin Chavis Jr. was arrested again on drug charges 4/29/2013 (yesterday).   

Was there animosity between the elder Chavis and Seminole County - Wolfinger?  His son claimed indigency - Chavis Sr. is a very wealthy man.  Regardless of how he got there, Chavis and Russell Simmons are business partners and Russell Simmons is deep into this case.
Benjamin Chavis Demanding Justice: Now the Sanford Police Department is attempting to besmirch the good name of Trayvon and his family. They are leaking questionable information from the local police incident report that seeks to portray Trayvon in a negative manner. It is as if the local authorities in Sanford are determined to try to justify the actions of Zimmerman. Of course there can be no justification of the murder of an unarmed minor under any circumstances. We have to be aware and challenge all those would be lured into the petulant swamp of demonizing Trayvon’s image and lifestyle with typical stereotypical attributes. No one should be fatally judged by skin color or by clothes type or style. No one has the right to take the life of another human being. We live in a world where the value of all life has been lowered too low. No child should be the victim of the hatred and violence from those who may have become deranged with a trigger-happy blood thirst. (emphasis mine)

 Dr. Chavis was also one of the Wilmington 10 - a group of activist who were arrested in the 70's and jailed for crimes committed during a stand-off with police during protests.  
Forty years after they were convicted by a jury of firebombing a grocery store in Wilmington, North Carolina, civil rights activists who became known as the "Wilmington 10" were pardoned Monday by the state's outgoing governor.
"These convictions were tainted by naked racism and represent an ugly stain on North Carolina's criminal justice system that cannot be allowed to stand any longer," said Gov. Beverly Perdue. "Justice demands that this stain finally be removed."
All were pardoned by outgoing Governor of North Carolina. Within a month, Dr. Benjamin Chavis was a guest at the Inauguration of President Obama. Dr. Chavis is a friend of Rev. Wright. Weaved webs.
