Ruby Dee and Maya Angelou: Angels of Dignity

Like most us I was saddened to hear of the deaths of two remarkable, legendary, transcendent American women.

The profound poetry of Dr. Maya Angelou inspired generations of young people to question the norms of an unjust society and challenge us to force change for the good of all, which is exactly what she worked for until the day she was called home. Ruby Dee was a tireless advocate for…

Secret Burden: A poem by Susan Laine

Struggling in the dark, imprisoned by silence;

Silenced by the haunting echo of an empty soul.

Tanner's Banjo Lesson

The Banjo Lesson is one of the most important images ever created by an African American artist. This was one of the first depictions of Black Americans in which stereotypical minstrel show type characterizations did not play a part. The tender one on one interaction between teacher and student shows the kind of intelligence and sensitivity indicative of real human beings,…
