By Marian Wright Edelman FOUNDER AND PRESIDENT EMERITA   “Those who have no record of what their forebears have accomplished lose the inspiration which comes from the teaching of biography and history.” –Dr. Carter G. Woodson   Dr. Carter G. Woodson, the son of former slaves, a pioneering Harvard-trained historian, and the founder of the Association for the Study of African American Life and History, created Negro History Week in 1926 to help give this record and inspiration to other African Americans.

Knock, knock; someone’s in trouble
3/3/2021 1:33:53 PM

Dr. James L. Snyder   For some reason, the last several weeks we have been getting many visitors at our door. I’m not sure if this is a general trend or if it is just our door. Some of them have been salesmen, religious people, scam artists, and a host of other people. They only had one goal in mind, and that was to get our money. I guess I have not realized how wealthy I am. Everybody wants my money. If they only knew how little money I had, they would be running away from our house. I can’t even get my money because I’m not sure where it is. This year...

Remembering wonderful Mississippi Governor William Winter
2/24/2021 9:47:41 PM

By Marian Wright Edelman FOUNDER AND PRESIDENT EMERITA   Mississippi’s former Governor William Winter, who died on December 18, 2020, helped transform Mississippi’s rigidly segregated public education system. He ran for office promising to focus on education and kept his promise. His signature accomplishment was a law that improved the futures of Mississippi’s children—especially Black children who had been harmed for decades by a separate and profoundly unequal education system. When he took office in 1980 Mississippi was the only state with no...

LYNWOOD—Lynwood High School senior Alexa Escamilla is preparing for higher education by doing what she loves most—helping others. For Alexa, serving the community she loves has given her purpose amid the uncertainty of the world around her over the past year. “In some ways, distance learning has given me more ways to be useful,” Alexa said. “I do miss in-person classes and creating those connections, but there are other ways to connect people.” Alexa, who is among the top of her LHS class with a 4.6 GPA, is targeting Columbia University and UCLA as...

What’s Pete got to do with anything?
2/24/2021 9:28:21 AM

Dr. James L. Snyder   If there's anybody that can be conned, it's Yours Truly. It's not so much that I'm stupid; I'm just naïve. I believe when somebody says something, they mean exactly what they say. So, if you can't swindle me, you might as well hang it up and get a real job. I must confess I often know a certain person is trying to take advantage of me. But, that's another story. One problem I see is that people are always blaming someone else for their problems. I must confess I do that on occasion, probably more so than I will...

If it was up to me
2/18/2021 11:27:36 AM

Dr. James L. Snyder   THE PARSONAGE—Fifty years ago, I was a teenager. Boy, do I miss those Days of Yore. It's not that I would like to relive them, but I was a much different person back then. As a teenager, I knew everything, and all you had to do was ask me. Even if you didn't ask me, I still would tell you what was on my mind. I wished I knew everything today because people are asking me questions I can’t even answer. A teenager is someone between being a baby and being an adult. I sure don't want to be a baby, and I've had misgivings about...
