LET’S “COME TO THE LIGHT, THE BEAUTIFUL LIGHT” Yes, I agree, it’s way past time…

They go to school in Atlanta’s majority-Black DeKalb County

By Caroline Kitchener November 10 in The Lily

Brittney Caldwell couldn’t wait to celebrate. Wearing a bright orange Howard University sweatshirt, she logged into Zoom to teach an extra-credit class with 10 of her female students from AP U.S. history. It was the first school day since Joe Biden won the presidential election, and Caldwell — a Howard alumna, like Vice President-elect Kamala D. Harris — had come ready to discuss the history at hand.

Re-inventing Work: An Interview with Matthew Fox

Back in the 1960s, a Harvard graduate student made a landmark discovery about the nature of human anger.

At age 34, Jean Briggs traveled above the Arctic Circle and lived out on the tundra for 17 months. There were no roads, no heating systems, no grocery stores. Winter temperatures could easily dip below minus 40 degrees Fahrenheit.

Briggs persuaded an Inuit family to “adopt” her and “try to keep her alive,” as the anthropologist wrote in 1970.  CLICK TO CONTINUE
