The Unfinished Business of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. | Imam Zaid Shakir

During these days many in this country are commemorating the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., born January 15, 1929. While most remember Dr. King for his soaring oration, symbolized by his famous “I Have a Dream” speech, delivered before a sweltering throng at the Lincoln Memorial, August 28, 1963, Dr. King was far more than a moving orator. He was a formidable intellectual, an effective organizer and a passionate advocate for the freedom of his people. These qualities combined with...

Women’s March Returns To DC, Other Cities

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Women’s March returned to Washington on Saturday and found itself coping with an ideological split and an abbreviated route due to the government shutdown. The original march in 2017, the day after President Donald Trump’s inauguration, drew hundreds of thousands of people. The exact size of the turnout remains subject to a politically charged debate, but it’s generally regarded as the largest Washington protest since the Vietnam era. Organizer this year submitted a perm...

50 moments from 1969 that shaped entertainment and pop culture

It was the last year of the ’60s, and the last year for Boris Karloff, Judy Garland and the Beatles, too. But it was also the first year for Led Zeppelin, Jennifer Aniston, “Easy Rider” and Jay-Z, too. John Lennon and Yoko Ono spent part of it in bed in public. The Doors’ Jim Morrison spent part of it in jail. Moviegoers spent time watching “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid,” while at home they watched a brand-new show called “The Brady Bunch” about a brand-new kind of blended family, the youn...

The Best Work I Saw at the Medium Festival of Photography: Part 2

  I never set out to be an opinion columnist. It’s true. Hell, before 2008, if you’d told me I’d become a professional blogger, much less do the job for nearly 9 years, I’d have taken you for a crazy person. But everything realigned 10 years ago, in the eye-teeth of The Great Recession, and frankly, I don’t think the world has been the same since. It’s funny, reading the papers, following the discussions about whether the 10 year bull market has finally turned bear. Will the stock market’s tumbl...

Bill and Melinda Gates say they've found something better at curbing immigration than a wall

According to the Gates Foundation, fewer babies and toddlers are dying than ever before: the global mortality rate for children under five has declined by more than 50% since 1990. This is mostly because of better public-health initiatives: more vaccines, polio eradication efforts, and better maternal and child healthcare. But the Gates' are worried that as rich countries turn "inward," they'll stop funding some life-saving health campaigns around the world, making the globe less peaceful and ...

What can history tell us about the future of international relations?

According to Cicero, history is the teacher of life (historia magistra vitae). But it seems fair to say that history has not been the teacher of International Relations. The study of international relations was born 100 years ago to make sense of the European international system, which had just emerged from four years of warfare. Ever since, the field has remained remarkably Eurocentric. Virtually all major theories have been formulated to understand the international system that arose in Europ...
