Over the past few weeks, we’ve been thrilled to hear a strong demand for more opportunities for Black artists and students of color at Penland.
This desire has already resulted in the addition of three new summer 2021 scholarships to our list of scholarships for people of color. They were funded by Penland’s staff, team of directors, and Board of Trustees, respectively. Our staff wanted to make these opportunities as accessible as possible, so each scholarship will cover 100% of tuition, room, and board and also include a stipend for travel and materials.

Back in February, when people still went into stores to buy things for their kids, a California state assembly member, Evan Low, introduced AB 2826. The bill would require retailers with 500 or more employees to stop dividing toys, clothes and childcare items into boys’ and girls’ sections; those who didn’t would face a $1,000 fine.

As the coronavirus pandemic brought travel to a screeching halt, an industry that had been growing rapidly thanks to budget airlines, the sharing economy, and Instagram culture (to name a few reasons) suddenly had to reckon with a future that looked permanently altered. But with this pause comes the opportunity to reroute—to address the social, environmental, and economic issues that arise from tourism, for better and certainly for worse.
Masks are recommended as a simple barrier to help prevent respiratory droplets from traveling into the air and onto other people when the person wearing the mask coughs, sneezes, talks, or raises their voice. This is called source control. This recommendation is based on what we know about the role respiratory droplets play in the spread of the virus that causes COVID-19, paired with emerging evidence from clinical and laboratory studies that shows masks reduce the spray of droplets when worn over the nose and mouth.

Kamala Harris’ big night was also the Democrats’ invocation of girl power
In the hours before the Democratic National Convention began on Wednesday, all I could think of was that stupid glass ceiling.
You know the one: Hillary Clinton put 18 million metaphorical cracks in it back in 2008. Her face symbolically shattered it at the 2016 convention. It hung over everyone’s head at the Javits Center on the night of Clinton’s presumed victory, until state after state turned red and those almighty symbolic roof panels started to feel more like a cruel joke: Nope, not broken.

At recent local protests for racial justice, young people have led chants taken up by thousands of demonstrators protesting the May 25 killing of George Floyd by a white Minneapolis police officer. Some have engaged their colleges’ administrations in discussions about redressing campus inequities, while others joined forces with a multigenerational effort, Black AVL Demands, to advocate for dramatic changes in city policy and spending. Many have been involved in all of those efforts and more.
“Our youth are the energy of the movement,” says Libby Kyles, CEO of the YWCA of Asheville and a Black Lives Matter leader and mentor. “They felt very much like things have not been happening fast enough.” CLICK TO CONTINUE

Treason against the United States is defined in Article III of the Constitution as “levying war against [the United States], or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort.” Cleaving to, or joining an enemy, as President Donald J. Trump did today, and in the past, is treason. Pure and simple.
We have received calls and emails asking us what we can do & how we can be effective allies amidst the pain of George Floyd’s murder and all those that preceded (and have followed) his…and now, in Atlanta, have come after his, as well. We have also felt the energy, determination, and commitment as we’ve marched with so many others in Asheville.
