Cone Health’s declaration of accountability corrects sins of the past

September 23, 2016

On Thursday, September 15, 2016 Cone Health Board of Trustees celebrated the groundbreaking efforts of local African American physicians and dentists who sought to integrate the medical facilities at Cone Hospital in the 1960s. Numbering among the medical professionals, who sued the segregated hospital for access, was my father, Milton H. Barnes, a Greensboro dentist. […]


Republican Party rejects Black voters

September 19, 2016

Are Black voters so loyal to Democrats that their issues are ignored? Donald Trump suggests as much, arguing that Blacks have “nothing to lose” by voting for him. Now a column by Farai Chideya at FiveThirtyEight cites academics who make a similar argument. In recent elections, about 90 percent of the Black vote has gone […]


Insure all children

September 8, 2016

If asking parents this simple question could help ensure children stay healthier, do better in school, and even save a child’s life, should schools do it? More and more districts around the country are answering with a resounding yes! The Children’s Defense Fund (CDF) and AASA, The School Superintendents Association, have just released Happy, Healthy, […]


90 million consumers save $2.2 billion each year without triple-digit interest loans

September 2, 2016

We read it, talk about it, even complain about it from time to time. But if you look close enough, the good news can still be found – like Olympic gold medalists of all colors winning in Rio, or a series of voter suppression laws ruled unconstitutional in several states. And there’s even more good […]


Ali was a disappointment to me

August 19, 2016

Now that the White celebrations in memory of Muhammad Ali have passed, I feel I can write some truths. Muhammad Ali was a major disappointment for me, personally. Don’t get me wrong, I loved the guy. I thought he was the greatest fighter ever and not just in the boxing ring. He stood up for […]


Accounting: A pathway for career success

August 12, 2016

For high school students planning for college, senior year can be an exciting and confusing time. Many students begin their college studies without a clear plan.

A commitment to Democracy

August 4, 2016

The North Carolina NAACP President, Rev. William Barber, tore it up and then threw down in a powerful speech at the Democratic National Convention on July 28th. He called on those assembled to be a “moral defibulator of our time,” to shock our nation with the power of love and morality. Rev. Barber did not […]


Why we can’t get along

July 22, 2016

“Our nation is moving toward two societies, one Black, one White-separate and unequal … The alternative is not blind repression or capitulation to lawlessness. It is the realization of common opportunities for all within a single society.” Those words weren’t written or spoken to describe today’s crisis of race and injustice now being exposed, condemned […]


Stop the corporate takeover of public schools

July 15, 2016

Governor Patrick McCrory and the extremists in the General Assembly have been engaged in an extreme attack retrogressive campaign against public schools since the day they came to power. Today, Governor McCrory has on his desk another ideologically-driven attack on public education, House Bill 1080, which would allow for a back-door corporate takeover of public […]


An open letter to Republican Presidential Nominee Donald Trump

July 8, 2016

Editor’s Note: The following letter was penned by Rev. Barber in advance of Donald Trump’s July 5 campaign rally in Raleigh, N.C.

Instead, your campaign presents an extremist […]
