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.

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...
