Today marks the 60th Announcement of the March on Washington on August 28, 1963. We won’t stand for the continued egregious attempts to ban Black history in states across the country!

In 1973, The Bronx introduced the world to a new type of soundtrack for social justice. Created by diverse Black voices, hip-hop draws on the stories of the community that have been historically ignored by the mainstream. The genre shines a light on the joy, pain, creativity and ingenuity of the Black community.

No More Affirmative Action

The U.S. Supreme Court handed down a major ruling on Affirmative Action today, making it so colleges cannot consider race during the admission process. You can expect to see less diversity in traditionally white universities as well as the potential for decreased funding for HBCU’s who relied on the affirmative action bill.

Alabama Voting Rights

In a 5-4 decision, the Supreme Court is ordering Alabama to redraw their house district lines. Historically, the lines were drawn to put minority voters at a disadvantage. Now, not only will minority voters in Alabama see a more equitable map but hopefully other states with traditionally exclusive maps will follow suit.
