COVID-19 vaccines: Finding the right facts
3/24/2021 1:12:32 PM

By Marian Wright Edelman FOUNDER AND PRESIDENT EMERITA   I learned my first lessons about injustice and health growing up in segregated Bennettsville, South Carolina. I remember being awakened in the middle of the night after a Black migrant family’s car collided with a white truck driver’s vehicle on the highway in front of our church parsonage, and the horror I felt when my Daddy, siblings and I witnessed the white ambulance driver and attendant arrive on the scene only to leave behind the seriously injured Black migrant workers after they saw that the two white...

Savvy Senior - Keeping Your Balance as You Age
3/17/2021 1:27:59 PM

Dear Savvy Senior, What can you tell me about balance exercises? I’ve fallen a few times over the past year and have read that balance exercises can help me regain my steadiness, but I’m not exactly sure what to do. Unsteady at 70   Dear Unsteady, Most people don’t think much about practicing their balance, but they need to. As we age, our balance declines if it isn’t practiced, which can lead to falls that often result in a broken bone. Every year more than one in four people age 65 and older fall, and the risk increases with age. Here’s...

God will never scam me
3/17/2021 1:25:01 PM

Dr. James L. Snyder   Once when I wore a younger man's suit I would take anything free. I assumed it was my right to get something free. Then I had a conversation with my grandfather. If anybody knew how to squeeze a buffalo out of a nickel, it was my grandfather. But you couldn’t trick him by offering him something free. He said to me, "Son, if it's free, it ain't for me." Explaining that, he said, "For everything free, somebody, somewhere has to pay for it." At the time, I just chuckled and fluffed off this advice. After all, if...

The American Rescue Plan: Giant strides forward on child poverty
3/17/2021 12:52:38 PM

By Marian Wright Edelman FOUNDER AND PRESIDENT EMERITA   The “seed experiment” is a favorite science project from preschool on up: A child plants identical seeds in two pots. She places the first pot inside a dark closet and leaves it there. She then puts the second one in a sunny spot and waters it every day, and waits to see what will happen. It’s very easy for even the youngest children to figure out that their seedlings need the basics—sunlight and water—if they are going to survive and thrive. The same is true for children. The past year has...

What’s so Peasy about Easy?
3/10/2021 3:24:37 PM

Dr. James L. Snyder   I am nowhere to be found when it comes to crafts, remodeling, and just plain fixer-uppers. My carpentry skills are nowhere to be found even though I've looked for a long time. If I try to fix something, I make it worse than it was. Fixing is not my strong suit. On the other side of the parsonage, we have a different scenario. If the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage cannot fix something, it cannot be broken. No matter what it is, it doesn't take her long to figure out how to fix it. Often she will spend time on the computer searching out a...

Black History Month: Writing the Next Chapter
3/3/2021 2:40:17 PM

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.
