What does a just America look like?

September 20, 2019

Sometimes I allow myself to imagine a world with justice for all—not just in words, but by deeds. Before I go around the world with what I would like to see I want the best there is for everybody no matter where they live. Maybe to some what I wish for seems far-fetched, and is […]


DeVos hands for-profit colleges $11.1 billion over 10 year

September 12, 2019

Most consumers would likely agree that consumers should get what they pay for. If a product or service fails to deliver its promises, refunds are in order. That kind of thinking guided the Obama Administration’s decision to address false promises made to student loan borrowers. A rule known as the “borrower defense to repayment,” came […]


Let the Democrats cut each other up in the debates

September 6, 2019

I hear my friends who are Democrats complaining that the candidates in these debates are cutting each other up and it’s bad for the party. I say, let the blood flow, cut as cut can and go for the jugular. Let’s find out right now who can dish it out and who can take it. […]


Will you answer the call for moral revival?

August 30, 2019

I cannot overstate my tremendous admiration for Rev. William Barber. Our connection goes back to North Carolina when I was the President of Bennett College, and he led the state NAACP. His daughter, Sharrelle, graduated from Bennett in the spring before I assumed the presidency and as student body president, she served on the search […]


Jamestown to Jamestown: 400 Years of the African Diaspora Experience

August 23, 2019

History commonly and most often points to late August in the year 1619 when some “20 and odd Negroes” originating from Angola arrived in the British colony of Jamestown, Virginia as the first documented enslaved Africans to land in what is now the United States. This nation and its wealth was built through forced labor […]

August 1, 2019

In recent years, the spate of homicides linked to questionable uses of deadly weapons and/or force, have prompted many activist organizations to call for racial reparations. From Trayvon Martin’s death in Florida, to Michael Brown’s in Missouri, Eric Garner’s in New York and many other deaths — a chorus of calls for reparations has mounted, […]


No more Mary Turners

July 26, 2019

Mary Turner was lynched on May 19, 1918 because she dared raise her voice. Her husband, Hayes Turner, was among 13 people lynched in two weeks in and around Valdosta, Georgia. The lynching took place because one brutal White man, who was known to abuse workers so severely that he was only able to attract […]


Poverty and the fallacy of long-term economic greatness

July 19, 2019

The first week of July produced a somewhat positive Employment Situation report. While the unemployment rate ticked up just a bit, about 224,000 new jobs were created, nearly three times as many as were created in the tepid previous month. There was, of course, the Administration crowing about the strength of the economy, and with […]


‘Equal Pay, Equal Pay, Equal Pay’

July 12, 2019

As the exhausted and thrilled U.S. women’s soccer team celebrated its victory in the finals of the 2019 Women’s World Cup, the cheers of the crowd in the Stade of Lyon soon turned into a chant: “Equal Pay, Equal Pay, Equal Pay.” Even as they fought their way to the fourth U.S. Women World Cup […]


Will White House Advisory Council act to end America’s affordable housing crisis?

July 2, 2019

Nearly 90 years ago, Kelly Miller (1863-1939), a Black sociologist and mathematician, said, “The Negro is up against the White man’s standard, without the White man’s opportunity.” As the first Black man to enroll as a graduate student at Johns Hopkins University in 1908, Miller also authored a book entitled Race Adjustment, published in 1908.
