An Amazing And Rare Interview With Malcolm X

September 29, 2013

The civil rights leader was certainly a divisive one, and that carries through in this rare, color interview taking place in 1963. Here, he discusses how the African experience in the United States is one that–right down to surnames–is denied its own, authentic history. Fascinating stuff.

The Most Staggering 9/11 Photography

September 11, 2013

Twelve years ago today, the lives of nearly 3,000 people came to a tragically premature end. Since then, the rubble has been cleared, the perpetrators have been caught and a new building has been erected, but for the many still mourning the loss of their loved ones, nothing built or brought to justice can replace that hollow, aching feeling that acts as their shadow each and every day. When the towers collapsed on that fateful morning in September, so too did their worlds. This 9/11 photography–no matter how hard it may be to view–encapsulates that sinking feeling of irrevocable loss:

20 Inspiring Photos Of The 1963 March On Washington

August 28, 2013

An incredible result of extensive planning, peaceful perseverance and courage on behalf of activists in the civil rights, labor and religious sectors, over 200,000 individuals congregated at the March on Washington on August 28, 1963 to demand civil and economic rights for African Americans. In spite of the fact that constitutional amendments had elevated the status of African Americans to that of their more pale-skinned brethren some decades prior, many still found themselves in slavery by another name: perennial joblessness, poverty and second-class citizenship as dictated by the pervasive Jim Crow laws in the South.

50 years later, much has been achieved in the American Civil Rights Movement–namely the 1964 Civil Rights Act and the 1965 Voting Rights Act, both of which are believed to be the result of the 1963 march–but there is still plenty of room for improvement. Let’s take a minute and get inspired to improve upon our progress.
