by Rich Girard January 14, 2018

On January 4, 2018, I received an email invitation to City Year’s Martin Luther King Day event (right).   The subject line of the email was “Free Family Event: Martin Luther King, Jr. Day!”  Candidly, I thought nothing of it and didn’t open the invitation until after I saw that I’d received multiple inquiries, complaints and statements […]

My Apologies

by Ed Naile January 24, 2017

The day I stopped listening to the Civil Rights movement

by Skip August 28, 2013

Pretty much, this from Glen Reynolds sums it up: IT’S COME TO THIS: Tim Scott, nation’s only black Senator, not invited to speak at March on Washington.
