How Tracy Sherrod Came to Lead America’s Oldest Black Publishing Imprint
Lauren Michele Jackson recently wrote a piece for Vulture, looking at lists of Black texts that pop up whenever there’s a galvanizing incident of racial violence. A lot of the magazines and websites will publish a list like, here’s what to read to think about race. Jackson wrote. “Aside from the contemporary teaching texts, genre appears indiscriminately: essays slide against memoir and folklore, poetry squeezed on either side by sociological tomes. This, maybe ironically but maybe not, reinforces an already pernicious literary divide that books written by or about minorities are for educational purposes, racism and homophobia and stuff, wholly segregated from matters of form and grammar, lyric and scene.” I’d really like to hear your perspective on this, because you publish books about race, but you publish books about everything. Do you think readers should be looking at books as curative or as medicine for toxicity and racism in this culture?

Couple Married for 53 Years Hold Hands as They Die of Coronavirus on the Same Day
A couple who were married for more than half a century reportedly succumbed to coronavirus complications on the same day in Texas.
According to CNN, Betty and Curtis Tarpley, 80 and 79, died within an hour of each other on June 18 and held hands during their final minutes together.
The couple's son, Tim Tarpley, told the network that Betty showed symptoms of the deadly disease just before she was taken to Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Fort Worth on June 9. Curtis was admitted to the same hospital just two days later.
Tarpley said Betty phoned both him and his sister, telling them she was at peace with dying as her condition continued to decline.
"I just screamed, 'No!' I was like, 'I've got too much, too many other things to do in this life that I want to show you, and I'm not ready,'" he recalled to CNN.

A white man who got so upset at being asked to wear a mask in a Lyft driver’s car ended up going on a racist and homophobic rant and was later banned by the service.
In a video recorded on May 28 by the driver Edgar, the man who identified himself as Richard entered the car without a mask. Edgar asked Richard to put on a mask or lift his shirt over his mouth and Richard refused.
“Do you believe in that shit?” Richard said incredulously, referring to either coronavirus prevention measures or coronavirus itself.
“Yes, I do,” Edgar responded, “because I have family that is sick of that.”

How Did Four Young Black Boys Become Hollywood Stars During the Height of Jim Crow?
As it turns out, Sunshine Sammy was a race man. Farina and Stymie too, and even Buckwheat for a minute or so.
This may be hard to fathom, considering the designation was generally applied, back around the '20s, to men who exemplified the most righteous and upstanding attributes of black people, and advocated for fair and dignified treatment. It’s also hard to fathom because, at the time, they were just young black boys.
But they were young black boys with starring roles in Hollywood, and among the most popular performers of their time. There weren’t very many blacks of any age getting any sort of featured screen time back then, at least not in roles that didn’t demean the race. Thus, these young people were heralded in the black press, and even by the NAACP, as some of the leading exemplars of blackness, well before any of them were old enough to drive.
Sunshine Sammy, Farina, Stymie and Buckwheat were the principal black characters throughout the 20-year run of the Our Gang film series. The black community treated them (respectively, Ernie Morrison, Allen Hoskins, Matthew Beard and Billie Thomas) like rock stars. But their lives were much more complicated than the movie roles ever let on. Their regard within the black community would be transformed decades later, as the Our Gang franchise lived on years after its heyday.

The Winter Show Will No Longer Allow Dealers to Exhibit and Sell Racist Objects
The Winter Show will no longer allow dealers to exhibit and sell works that are deemed racist on their show floor, the organization announced this week. Long considered the keystone of New York’s Americana Week, the fair has regularly drawn designers such as late Mario Buatta as well as prominent collectors such as Oprah Winfrey. The news, which comes in the midst of a watershed moment of cultural reckoning about the pervasive nature of institutionalized racism, makes the Winter Show the first major American fair of its kind to publicly ban such racist objects, which are often but not always associated with Americana.
The 'Best of Nextdoor' Account Is Trying to Make the Site Less Racist
A social media network that is a combination of Facebook, Craigslist, and neighborhood watch, Nextdoor is a platform known for its "Karen problem," and hosting busybodies more worried about property than Black people, as one VICE story showed.
Jenn Takahashi, a public relations professional, started Best of Nextdoor in 2017 when she was living in the quiet neighborhood of Glen Park in San Francisco. At the time, she was working for a PR agency and found the job very stressful. For some reason, she told VICE, browsing the silliness on Nextdoor brought her peace.
"I had this one neighbor that would complain about someone rearranging her lawn gnome every single day at 4 p.m. on the dot," she remembered. Nonsense like this, she said, "was a reminder for me to not sweat the small stuff." Later, she'd start Best of Nextdoor, a Twitter account and website meant to capture moments like these. When submitting, users are reminded to keep the subject matter light and funny. But after Takahashi saw Nextdoor's initial statement supporting Black Lives Matter, she felt a responsibility to comment.
