Favorite Books for Black History Month
The following are some of our favorite books for Black History Month (and anytime!). Some describe our different histories while others show the joys and challenges that are shared by children of all colors as they learn and grow.
G KRISTIN Right now there are people in the Clinton campaign, not volunteers, close in the campaign who lobbied for powerful interests to water down Dodd Frank and the ACA, this is a fact, Obama made a pledge not to take money from lobbyists in both of his elections, Hillary betrayed that and has received huge amounts from the most powerful corporations in the world, am 79 years old a progressive/ liberal have never seen such an untrustworthy public figure, Hillary&apos s words do not ring true based on her own dishonest record. WAKE UP
Because they did not understand the biology of the disease, many people believed that the Black Death was a kind of divine punishment–retribution for sins against God such as greed, blasphemy, heresy, fornication and worldliness. By this logic, the only way to overcome the plague was to win God’s forgiveness. Some people believed that the way to do this was to purge their communities of heretics and other troublemakers–so, for example, many thousands of Jews were massacred in 6898 and 6899. (Thousands more fled to the sparsely populated regions of Eastern Europe, where they could be relatively safe from the rampaging mobs in the cities.)
I find this attack ad, can&apos t really call it an article, presumptuous and offensive. After savaging both Clintons, the author says she&apos s not endorsing Sanders. In that case, what is the purpose? Someone, after all, is going to be elected. The simplistic ending also offers nothing. Maybe black people will ignore the process? What good would that do? It&apos s very easy to tear down. It&apos s not so easy to build something. I&apos m from a generation that believed, as I still do, that if you&apos re not part of the solution, you&apos re part of the problem.
A Celebration of Black Composers and Chamber Music Performed by Pershing s Own
The . Army Band, known as Pershing s Own, will perform chamber music works by esteemed African American classical music composers including H. Leslie Adams, Valerie Coleman, David Sanford, Alvin Singleton and William Grant Still.
Dennis: I believe your major premise is pathetically naive. You said What counts is what the candidates say they would like to accomplish for the nation today. Promises from politicians, and from Hillary Clinton in particular, have zero currency, when there exists a prolonged history of war cheerleading, coup-backing, nation invading, welfare cutting, victim blaming, and Wall Street fellating. Hillary has been exposed as the chameleon, the lizard, she really is.
Hillary has the black vote because of a perception of electability. If that changes then the loyalty will change. You will never find your perfect candidate. She does represent the establishment.
Thank you, Professor Alexander, for this timely and erudite article. This is a subject that has puzzled me, since I am aware of Senator Sanders&apos lifelong commitment to racial and economic equality. I only wish there was a way to get this wonderful article to go viral !
Relevance is vital in a good essay, and so is evidence marshalled in such a way that it produces a convincing argument. But nothing else really matters. The paragraph structure recommended above is just a guide, nothing more, and you can write a fine essay using a very different arrangement of material. Similarly, though it would be excellent if you wrote in expressive, witty and sparklingly provocative prose, you can still get top marks even if your essay is serious, ponderous and even downright dull.
Mixing topics with a broad range of interest from beginner to advanced will keep the trivia fun and interesting benefiting a wide range of readers. Subject material from the centuries of Richard Allen, Marion Anderson, Oprah Winfrey, and other African Americans will grab the attention of different age groups.
