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?

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.

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.

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.

“As Barack said, if the two of us can end up on the walls of the most famous address in the world, then, again, it is so important for every young kid who is doubting themselves to believe that they can, too.” On September 7, former President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama visited […]

Moses Didn’t Have Horns, He Had An “Isro”

September 9, 2022

Recently, I wrote about the importance of understanding the meaning of works of statuary and the iconic messages they convey. Most high school students who take art history learn who Michelangelo was. These students also learn that his statue of Moses holding the tablets inscribed with the Ten Commandments is curious because it depicts Moses […]

When statues die

September 2, 2022

In recent years, people have begun to spend more time contemplating the meaning and significance of statuary. Statues of perpetrators of Europe’s colonial expansion and racist legacies began to tumble in the United States and England as descendants of colonized and enslaved people of color brought attention to the human misery afflicted by those whose […]

Redistricting is voter suppression too

August 26, 2022

When Charles Diggs, Jr. won election to Congress in Michigan’s 13th District in 1954, he launched nearly seven decades in which the city of Detroit had at least one Black member of Congress. That’s likely to change this year. Because of redistricting, Detroit no longer has majority-Black congressional districts. And in the first primary election […]
