50 years after Fair Housing Act, still long way toward ending segregation

April 19, 2018

“The housing problem is particularly acute in the minority ghettos. Nearly two-thirds of all non-White families living in the central cities today live in neighborhoods marked with substandard housing and general urban blight. Two major factors are responsible. First: Many ghetto residents simply cannot pay the rent necessary to support decent housing. In Detroit, for […]


Will the HUD Secretary enforce the Fair Housing Act?

April 13, 2018

The Fair Housing Act was passed a week after Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated. President Lyndon Johnson encouraged Congress to pass the legislation as a tribute to the slain civil rights leader, who, along with several civil rights organizations (including the NAACP), strongly supported the act. African American veterans’ organizations (including the American […]


On 50th anniversary of King’s assassination, we have work to do

April 5, 2018

The 50th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King’s assassination comes amid a fierce struggle for the soul of America.

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 […]
