After a short break, I return with some relevant stuff for you. Do you rememher Timothy Thomas? Do you remember the Cincinatti uprisings? Do you remember the United Black Front boycott? Well, a new chapter in progress may have been reversed with the Cincinatti Police Department requesting release from a Justice department mandated community partnership around racial profiling. I'm still searching for more information on the situation. Contact me if you have any more info!
April marked the centennial anniversary of The Souls of Black Folks by W.E.B. Du Bois. The sociological and African-American Studies canonical text was not honored at U of M this year, tisk, tisk, tisk. Still it remains one of the most insightful works on the African-American tradition.
