Lifting up new leaders: The future of Black women’s history

March 16, 2018

All too often, our “history” month turns into a tribute to the past. And while the past is an important place to lift up it is, indeed, a tributary, a stream that flows into the larger stream of an unbounded future. The future must always be greater than the present, or there has been no […]

A 50 year plea to heal our divided society persists

March 9, 2018

“In 1968, the Kerner Commission concluded that America was heading toward ‘two societies, one Black, one White—separate and unequal.’ Today, America’s communities are experiencing increasing racial tensions and inequality, working-class resentment over the unfulfilled American Dream, White supremacy violence, toxic inaction in Washington, and the decline of the nation’s example around the world.” This quote […]

Parkland High School students have the courage and will to reform gun laws

March 2, 2018

This is our first task, caring for our children. It’s our first job. If we don’t get that right, we don’t get anything right. That’s how, as a society, we will be judged. And by that measure, can we truly say, as a nation, that we’re meeting our obligations? Can we honestly say that we’re […]

Failures on gun control fail our children

February 23, 2018

The United States is failing in what surely is the first duty of government — protecting our children from threats that they cannot deal with themselves. Voters and politicians are failing our children. After 17 students and teachers were killed and a dozen wounded on Valentine’s Day by an unbalanced 19-year-old firing an AR-15 rifle […]

S***hole countries not a priority

February 2, 2018

Our 45th President traipsed over to the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, with a plan to rub elbows with world leaders, repair some relationships, and possibly shred even more. He had hardly landed before he started threatening to cut off aid to the Palestinians unless they participate in peace talks with Israeli Prime Minister […]

Behind the Black unemployment rate

January 26, 2018

When the unemployment rate dropped and economic conditions improved under the leadership of President Barack Obama, 45 derided the gains as “fake news.” He suggested that the monthly Employment Situation ( reports of the Bureau of Labor Statistics were inaccurate and “made up.” These are the monthly reports that detail employment statistics, including unemployment rates.

Dr. King’s call to ‘Give Us the Ballot’ is as relevant today as it was in 1957

January 18, 2018

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s first speech at the Lincoln Memorial was not his celebrated 1963 address at the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. Six years earlier, when he was still a relative newcomer on the national scene, Dr. King addressed 25,000 civil-rights activists who had gathered at the memorial for the Prayer […]

Fifty years ago

January 11, 2018

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., born on January 15, 1929, turned 39 years old fifty years ago. Assassinated on April 4, 1968, he didn’t make it to 40. Yet in his scant 39 years on the planet, he upended the ways we think about race, capitalism, poverty, power, and imperialism. The powers that be –foundations, […]

The infrastructure hoax

January 5, 2018

Our nation’s infrastructure is crumbling. Nearly ten percent of our bridges are deficient or decrepit, a quarter of our schools are in fair or poor condition. More than half of all schools need major repairs before they can be classified as good, but 31 states spend less on school construction now than they did in […]
