Interview with F. Michael Higginbotham, author, Ghost of Jim Crow

When America inaugurated its first African American president, in 2009, many wondered if the country had finally become a "post-racial" society. Was this the dawning of a new era, in which America, a nation nearly severed in half by slavery, and whose racial fault lines are arguably among its most enduring traits, would at last move beyond race with the election of Barack Hussein Obama? In Ghosts of Jim Crow, F. Michael Higginbotham convincingly argues that America remains far away from that imagined utopia. Indeed, the shadows of Jim Crow era laws and attitudes continue to perpetuate insidious, systemic prejudice and racism in the 21st century.

10 years gone: Abe and Joe survey the wreckage of the Iraq War.

Weapons of mass destruction. Regime change. Shock and awe. 9/11. Freedom fries. A wink, a nod, and a lie -- and all of a sudden, the United States invades a country that never attacked us. Ten years after the War in Iraq began, Abe and Joe look back at the surreal runup to the 2003 invasion, the torture and plunder of the war itself, and its lingering aftermath.

Granito is an expression of the indigenous people of Guatemala...none of us can do it alone, each must put in their granito, their tiny grain of sand.  Direct descendants of the ancient Maya, the indigenous of Guatemala make up 40% of the population.  With the help of the U.S. government, as many of 200,000 of them and their supporters, the future leaders of Guatemala, were masacred in the early 1980s.

The Passage to Higher Education Program at PCC Cascade

School systems from across the United States have increasingly come under public scrutiny. Frustration with schools, especially the inner city districts, not adequately preparing youth to cross the bridge to the 21st century, has lead to debates about funding practices, teacher accountability, parental involvement and paradigm shifts. Also, concerns about the level of violence in schools, teen pregnancy, drugs, and other distractions have been apart of the public discussion on How do we better educate our youth? An innovative program at PCC Cascade “The Passage” to Higher Education is an organized network of professionals and students committed to providing a foundational framework for African American Women earning their degrees.
