    President Trump leads the charge on school choice: Omarosa
    Omarosa Manigault 5:00 a.m. ET Feb. 8, 2017
    Advocacy for parental choice in education will help African-American youth excel

    ... I am proud to serve under a president who has made it clear that the forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no more, including — and I would argue especially — African Americans.

    The history of Black History Month

    Goodbye to our first black president: Your Say

    Education is the ultimate equalizer in our society. I say that from personal experience ...

    How black Americans protected fugitive slaves

    Over the past few days, the national climate has grown increasingly tense over the issue of “sanctuary” cities and states.

    This opposition between federal authorities and local communities is hardly new, as a scholar of slavery and emancipation, I have studied the long history of African-American communities and how they offered sanctuary or protection to the most vulnerable among them ...

    Dream Deferred - Poem by Langston Hughes
    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    What happens to a dream deferred?
    Does it dry up
    Like a raisin in the sun?
    Or fester like a sore--
    And then run?
    Does it stink like rotten meat?
    Or crust and sugar over--
    like a syrupy sweet?
    Maybe it just sags
    like a heavy load.
    Or does it explode?

    Langston Hughes
