SELMA, Ala. — Bruce Carver Boynton, a civil rights pioneer from Alabama who inspired the landmark “Freedom Rides” of 1961, died Monday. Yet both his mother and father were early civil rights activists. Thurgood Marshall, then the nation’s leading civil rights attorney and later on to become the first Black Supreme Court justice, was his counsel. The “Freedom Riders” were arrested or attacked in Alabama, Mississippi and South Carolina, and a bus was burned. He spent most of his career as a civil rights attorney before retirement.

Philadelphia is 42.3 percent Black, Detroit is 78.6 percent Black and nearly 52 percent of Atlanta residents are Black. The Department of Justice took county election officials to court. "He's using these Black voters as fodder for the rage that's being intensified among his base," Lewis said Monday. “Detroit Votes Matter!

Black doctors endorse taking 'safe and effective' COVID vaccine

A group of eight esteemed Black doctors wrote a “love letter to Black America” to encourage people to get the Covid-19 vaccine once it becomes available. In addition to some general skepticism over the vaccine, there is historical skepticism among the Black community regarding medical experimentation and vaccines. To get the Black community to take the virus, “they must do more to earn your trust — now and in the future. We ask you to join us in participating in clinical trials and taking a vaccine once it’s proven safe and effective. And as Black health professionals, we have a higher calling to stand for racial justice and to fight for health equity,” the group said.

While people in metropolitan Washington felt less anxiety on average than the country as a whole, people in the city itself experienced higher rates of anxiety than those in any other metro area or state. Despite barriers to in-person contact, there has been increased access to treatment options through online therapy and telehealth measures. Duggal started online therapy in March because of stress of making the transition and says starting online therapy was tricky. As the colder months roll around and the impact of staying indoors may challenge the mental health of many, experts say there is still reason to be optimistic. "The pandemic is an opportunity to build resilience," said Dr. Gordon of the National Institute of Mental Health.

“Between the World & Me,” is something altogether different, both old and new, a combination of film and theater that could only work on TV. Coates may not have known these specific events would happen, but the world continues to live down to his expectations. “Between the World and Me” has tapped into something that falls in between the two genres, a work all its own, a pandemic-influenced theatrical TV performance that is neither movie nor limited series nor show. It is, as HBO terms it, a special, in every sense of the word. Special enough that HBO is working to make sure it reaches as wide an audience as possible, available to stream on HBO’s website.

(CNN) Haunting and poetic, "Between the World and Me" translates Ta-Nehisi Coates' book and the subsequent stage presentation into an HBO special that loses none of its power, a feat made all the more remarkable by its production amid the coronavirus outbreak. Weaving in news footage with stars reading Coates' words, this version of the writer's reflections to his 15-year-old son will likely be played and replayed for years to come. Directed by Kamilah Forbes -- who brought Coates' book to the Apollo Theater -- the special incorporates news footage old and new, from Muhammad Ali speaking to dash-cam video of police abusing African-American drivers. Coates speaks of the "cosmic injustice" of the Black experience, and tells his child, "You do not have the privilege of living in ignorance" -- a warning that possess additional clout with Oprah presenting it.

They made a bet that if Adelman lost, he would help out at the off-campus student-housing company Horwitz had founded, Campus Apartments. "I had to go to Campus Apartments every Saturday to stack lumber and sweep sawdust to earn my stuff back," he said. Adelman went on to graduate from Ohio State University in 1994 and immediately went to work for Campus Apartments as a property manager.

Andrew Harnik | ReutersThe election of Sen. Kamala Harris as vice president of the United States means my daughter sees her future. Harris will be the first woman, first Black person, first South Asian American to be elected U.S. vice president. Kamala Harris brings many perspectives to this role that go far beyond the "firsts" that she's attained in her legal and political career. Yet being first and showing outstanding capability and authority throughout her career is inspiring - as California's first Black and Asian American attorney general, the first South Asian American woman and second Black woman elected to the U.S. Senate. What I found most interesting in discussions with many people about this historical achievement - the first Black woman elected vice president of the United States - was the reaction of my 15 year-old daughter.

Senator Kamala Harris, a lawyer who has often spoken of her desire to “prosecute the case” on the campaign trail, has rarely diverged from that strategy during her runs for president and vice president. While most female politicians such as Hillary Clinton and Nikki Haley favor TV-friendly rainbow hues, Sen. Harris adheres to a serious signature style honed during her years as a prosecutor. ”Sen. Harris has consistently used the sober codes of attorney style during her political career (with some notable, strategic exceptions—a sequined jacket, her Converse low-tops). ”Granted, the type of impeccably fitted tailoring that Senator Harris favors does not come cheap.
