Will the real Shaw Bears please stand up
Friday, December 9, 2016
Shaw women are 2-6 (as of Dec. 9). The Bears haven’t opened a season this bad since the 1999-2000 season under coach Bobby Sanders. Shaw finished 7-20 that year. I certainly don’t think the Bears will win just five more games the rest of the season, especially in a weak CIAA South, but the team does need an intervention. Shaw is averaging just

Black and proud: Top black high school seniors showcased
Thursday, December 8, 2016
Even though the courts ruled that segregation in the education system was unconstitutional in 1954, it took many years before black students were truly integrated. Some would argue that it still hasn’t happened. One aspect of that inequality is not just being given the same education, but also being rewarded in the same way. “Over 40 years

Thursday, December 8, 2016
DURHAM – D. Sanders scored just two points in Hillside’s rival game against Southern, but it was just the two the Hornets needed. With his team down by one with six seconds left, Sanders calmly stood at the free throw line and swished two free throws to give Hillside a 56-55 win in junior varsity action. Southern’s Lamario Wilkerson had

Raleigh Boys & Girls Elijah is an enthusiastic member of the Raleigh Boys & Girls Club technical training programs. When Elijah started coming to the club, he had a hard time fitting in and finding activities that he really loved. Then he discovered the photography/videography program and brain food culinary arts training program. Over the past
 
A changed church for a changing community
Thursday, December 8, 2016
ARLINGTON, Texas – Pastor Gary Smith was shocked by what he saw at the opening of a new middle school. In 1991, when he had been called as pastor of Fielder Church in Arlington, Texas, the city was predominantly white. His congregation was made up of middle-class folks who drove into Dallas to work. At school, the cheerleaders were all white. Now,
