50 years of black progress
Wednesday, January 28, 2015
Has black America made significant progress politically, socially and economically over the past 50 years? This is not only an important question to pose, it is equally important to answer. And the answer is a resounding yes. In fact, 1965 to 2015 has been a remarkable period in the history of black America. But make no mistake about it, all of our
 
Neither Obama nor Republicans have vision
Wednesday, January 28, 2015
Last week I thought Stevie Wonder gave a great State of the Union Speech. Oops, did I say Stevie Wonder, I meant to say President Obama.

I wasn’t surprised that Ava DuVernay’s “Selma” was nearly completely snubbed for an Oscar nomination last week, as were several white films and white actors and directors. I never thought that, after last year’s breakthrough for “12 Years a Slave,” the Oscar voting academy was going to make another powerful drama
 
Is Obama trying to kill black colleges?
Thursday, January 15, 2015
Is President Barack Obama trying to kill historically black colleges and universities? If he’s not, he’s going to have a difficult time convincing HBCU presidents, trustees and alumni. Surprisingly, Obama has become their worst nightmare. Neither Obama, Michelle Obama, the Secretary of Education nor the president’s closest advisors
