For the Association for the Study of African American Life and History

As a Harvard-trained historian,… Continue

Recently my partner and I were discussing possible stereotypical backlash now that our first “Oodleville” children’s book, The First Trip, has been published, and Bubba Oodle, our first character doll, is available. For me, the Oodles’ black color has been the subject of conjecture since I began working to manifest my dream.
In our conversation, therefore, we talked about ways to address the dolls’ color. We discussed comparing the Oodles to gollywogs who were and still are… Continue

Our First Lady Michelle Obama’s approval rating is standing strong says Politico (a polling agency website).
Her ratings are above any of her predecessors as she stands out as being a model individual who not only transcends Race but political parties as well. In fact, her approval rating is higher than that of her husband President Barack Obama. So is that why she grace the cover of our WACPtv Community Magazine and not (that one) the President? Let’s just say she’s the yard stick… go… Continue

Twila Busby was Hank Skinner’s soul mate. “We just fell together. We just clicked, man,” he says. The two were hardly apart after they met at an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting. They would kiss in public and cuddled up on the couch to watch thrillers. They were “sick in love,” Skinner says through a telephone receiver behind a Plexiglas window on Texas’ death row unit in Livingston.
A jury found that Skinner was so sick… Continue

LOUISIANA: Death row exonerations point to flaws in system
8 men have been found innocent of the crimes that put them on Louisiana's
death row. All were exonerated before they were put to death and
ultimately freed from prison.
Most often, those exonerations came after it was revealed that prosecutors
withheld evidence that was favorable to the defendant, relied on the
testimony of a jailhouse snitch or used faulty eyewitness… Continue

If you expected white America to embrace and applaud a Black man who did something other than shoot a ball through a hoop, knock one out of the park or sing a memorable song which they could tap their toes to, then I guess you are beginning to see the light. For over 300 years most whites have lived under the impression that, unless a Black man could do something spectacular and I mean “right now” he didn’t serve much purpose. This becomes more evident everyday as those so called independents… Continue

TO ALL THE KIDS WHO SURVIVED THE 1930's, 40's, 50's, 60's and 70's!!
First, we survived being born to mothers who smoked and/or drank while they were pregnant.
They took aspirin, ate blue cheese dressing, tuna from a can and didn't get tested for diabetes.
Then after that trauma, we were put to sleep on our tummies in baby cribs covered
with bright colored lead-base paints.
We had no childproof lids on medicine bottles, locks on… Continue
