I lost a day. Actually, I lost two days. On Monday night, Jan. 13, around 10:30 p.m. or so, I walked into the emergency room of Baltimore’s Johns Hopkins Medical Center. As of 9 p.m. on Jan. 26, I’m still in here. It’s all part of my now-three-year-fight against cancer. I came in to...

I guess the most offensive “flyer” was the one depicting Martin Luther King Jr. flashing a wad of cash and standing next to a scandalous, nearly butt-naked hoochie.

Memo to NFL officials: Many of us were born at night. Few of us were born last night. And the more discerning of us have noted that there is no “two-minute warning” given near the end of televised collegiate football games.

In one of what were probably several obituaries written about poet, playwright, essayist and activist Amiri Baraka after his death, one reporter told how he preferred to be remembered: “Well, I guess as a poet and a political activist. The poetry is at the base of it.”

Ruth Katherine Floyd’s idea of a “war on poverty” was to work to get out of poverty. She sure as heck didn’t wait around for Lyndon Johnson and liberal politicians to rescue her and her six children.

On Jan. 1, a new law went into effect in Colorado: Residents of the state and those visiting from other states can now buy marijuana for other than medical reasons. News stories about the lines of people that queued up to buy pot abounded. One story was about a father and son who drove their...

Chutzpah is defined as gall or audacity taken to the nth level. The classic and ultimate example of chutzpah is supposed to be the guy that murdered both his parents and then threw himself on the mercy of the court on the grounds that he was an orphan.

This is how I spent Christmas 2013: I got up around 10:30ish. I prepared the stuffing for the Christmas turkey and shoved that bird in the oven at precisely 11:41 a.m.

I wasn’t quite 4 years old when Emmett Till, a 14-year-old from Chicago who was visiting relatives in Mississippi, was brutally lynched in that state. So I remember few details about Till’s lynching except this one: the lengths to which my parents, aunts, uncles and other elders went to...

Some “terrorist.” Nelson Mandela was my hero back when many in the West thought he was precisely that: a terrorist. I hopped on the Mandela bandwagon early, around 1969, if I recall correctly. I was fresh out of high school, with a passion for African liberation groups like Mandela's...
