Do Not Stand Silently

June 4, 2020

Sixty years have passed since the Greensboro Four heroically sat down at a Woolworth’s lunch counter to stand up for what was right. And here we are still. As I shared with Cone Health’s 12,000 employees on Friday, we cannot be silent while, across our country and here at home, people continue to be targeted […]

COVID-19: How Going to Jail Became A Death Sentence

May 30, 2020

As we enter this ninth week of quasi-quarantine and “social-distancing” brought on by the plague of COVID-19, the Coronavirus, I find myself eerily in the same place I was before the pandemic: fighting systemic socio-economic and racial injustice, and looking for allies and antiracists to join in this righteous struggle. The various fronts in this […]

Statement on Reopening for In-Person Worship

May 28, 2020

As Jewish, Muslim, and Christian Faith Leaders in Greensboro and Guilford County, we are aware of the very real suffering that the COVID-19 virus is causing in our community, our nation, and our world. Based on the central teachings of our faith traditions, and the most reliable medical science, we will wait a while longer […]

Old, Sick and Incarcerated

May 21, 2020

There were 4,623 incarcerated people over 65 in federal prisons during the first week of May. Until May 12, Paul Manafort, Mr. Trump’s one-time campaign manager, was one of them. The 71-year-old petitioned the court for release to home confinement because of his age, heart condition, and “fear of coronavirus.” Yet the federal correctional institution […]

Ida B’s Pulitzer – Both too late and right on time

May 14, 2020

Exactly one hundred and thirty-six years to the day after Ida B. Wells was thrown off a Chesapeake and Ohio railroad train, she was awarded a Pulitzer Prize special citation for her “outstanding and courageous reporting on the horrific and vicious violence against African Americans in the era of lynchings.” The creator of the New […]

Let prisoners go during COVID-19 pandemic

May 7, 2020

Across the United States and across the world, prisoners are among the most vulnerable to the coronavirus. Overcrowded facilities, shortages of food and medicine, and totally inadequate testing expose prisoners, who are disproportionately poor and afflicted with prior conditions that render them vulnerable, to the disease. Prisoners increasingly are protesting their conditions, objecting to being […]

Donald John Trump is Hazardous to Your Health

April 30, 2020

The daily White House coronavirus briefings have made me cringe, scream, shake my head, and even laugh. The President of the United States offers medical advice, minimizes the coronavirus, injects partisanship into his remarks, and generally treated these critical briefings as his daily open mike. He uses his bully pulpit to praise and to scold, […]

Remembering a champion of Black businesses

April 23, 2020

“I feel that a large part of my role as publisher of Black Enterprise is to be a catalyst for Black economic development in this country. When I can act as an instrument to make it happen for legitimate and reasonable people, I do it. I try to be helpful and put people together, whether […]

City finances hard-hit by the coronavirusCity finances hard-hit by the coronavirus

April 16, 2020

Cities depend on density. They depend on people milling around downtown, or at neighborhood parks, or street fairs and restaurants. Not only does this milling about bring energy to urban areas, but it also contributes dollars to city coffers. Now with the coronavirus causing some cities to issue “shelter-at-home” orders, close restaurants except for pickup […]

Who Gets the Ventilators?

April 8, 2020

The “big and bad” United States is seeing its world dominance recede. We are being vanquished both by a virus and by the ignorance of the “Commander in Chief.” We now know that there are not enough tests to detect the coronavirus, nor enough ventilators to treat all of those who are ill. Medical professionals […]
