Voters make an important down payment on democracy’s future

November 23, 2022

A lot of good news came out of this month’s elections—and enough bad news to remind us that we can never let our guard down when freedom and democracy are at stake. This year, democracy itself was on the ballot, and voters made an important down payment on its future. In 2020, Americans voted not […]


Seven top takeaways from this year’s Midterms

November 18, 2022

As the dust settles on the midterm elections and the warnings of a “Red Wave” evaporate, it’s time to take a deep breath and take stock of what we’ve learned. There are many takeaways from the elections this year – and here are a few that top the list for me. If there’s one thing […]


Tell the Supreme Court: we still need Affirmative Action

November 11, 2022

One of the great joys of my life is teaching. I’m fortunate to teach classes on social justice at the University of Pennsylvania, one of the most respected schools in the country. Penn has a longstanding commitment to affirmative action, and I have seen first-hand how diversity in the classroom benefits all my students. There’s […]


Some politicians confuse freedom with irresponsibility

November 4, 2022

As extreme weather caused floods in Kentucky, collapse of the water system in Jackson Mississippi, and the savage destruction of central Florida – to say nothing of fires and drought and a growing water shortage in the West – we ought to agree on two simple realities: America faces a growing challenge from both catastrophic […]

Black Wombs Matter: See Aftershock

October 21, 2022

Did you know that Black women are three or four times more likely to die from childbirth complications than White women? Congresswoman Robin Kelly (D-IL), who heads the Congressional Black Caucus Health Brain trust, says the data are direr depending on where a mother lives. In Illinois, Black women are six times as likely to […]


This November, unite to defend the Black vote

October 14, 2022

Right before our last national elections in 2020, thousands of Black voters in Detroit got a call from someone posing as a woman named “Tamika Taylor.” She warned them that if they voted, the government would collect their personal information and come after them for credit card debt, outstanding warrants, even forced vaccinations. The calls […]


Outlining a vision to take Greensboro to greater heights

October 7, 2022

It goes without saying, Greensboro is a desirable city. This is thanks in large part to the leaders who have invested significantly in this community for many years. It is on their shoulders we stand and today’s accomplishments are a realization of their contributions. As a city leader, this is always top of mind: connecting […]


The cruelty of exploiting vulnerable people for political advantage

September 30, 2022

There is always a new low for Trump Republicans. And that is pretty frightening. Take the latest exercise in lawlessness, dishonesty, and cruelty from Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. He chartered a plane to send dozens of mostly Venezuelan asylum seekers from Texas to Martha’s Vineyard, an island community off the coast of Cape Cod in […]


With friends like these …

When President Theodore Roosevelt invited Booker T. Washington to dine with him at the White House, in 1901, the Southern White press condemned President Roosevelt while many African Americans hailed him as a friend of the “Negro.” But delving into the background of Theodore Roosevelt, it is not difficult to find troubling instances of his […]
