Remembering Walter E. Williams, friend and mentor: Larry Elder

I met economist and professor Walter Williams when I interviewed him while hosting a local TV show in Cleveland. We discussed a number of topics but focused on race-based preferences, aka affirmative action. Williams adamantly opposed it, still an unpopular position to take, but especially back then and especially for a Black person. He calmly explained how affirmative action causes a mismatch between a student and his or her ability to succeed on a campus more competitive than would have been t...

The US didn't send the first Black person into space — the Soviet Union did with the launch of Arnaldo Tamayo Méndez, an Afro-Cuban man who cleared the way for others to follow

NASA did not launch the first Black person into space — the Soviet Union beat the US space agency by three years. Arnaldo Tamayo Méndez, a Cuban of African descent, launched to space with a Soviet cosmonaut crewmate on September 18, 1980. NASA missed an opportunity to make Captain Ed Dwight the first Black astronaut 20 years earlier — and put him in the running for an Apollo moon-landing mission. Ultimately, Guion Bluford, who flew on the eighth space shuttle mission in 1983, was the first Bla...

How Martin Luther King Jr. and Motown Saved the Sound of the Civil Rights Movement

You know Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech. Or at least you think you know it—you’ve read about it in textbooks, or heard politicians quote from it, or seen clips in classrooms or museums. But chances are, you haven’t heard the full 17-minute address from the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, and what you have heard failed to capture what made it the one of the most famous speeches in history. Even if you wanted to, despite its renown, it’s surprisingly hard to find...

‘Avengers: Endgame’ Final Battle Oral History: How the Biggest Scene in Comic Book Movie History Came Together

As the narrative conclusion of 22 films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Avengers: Endgame needed to end with a scene so large, it could contain the dozens of characters who’d been established by that point. The film’s colossal final battle fit the bill: it’s a gargantuan confrontation with Thanos and his alien armies on one side and Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, and all of the surviving heroes on the other.
