Four hundred years ago, in August 1619, a ship carrying more than 20 enslaved Africans arrived in the British colony of Virginia. No aspect of the country that would be formed here has been untouched by the 250 years of slavery that followed.

“1619,” a New York Times audio series hosted by Nikole Hannah-Jones, examines the long shadow of that fateful moment. Today, instead of our usual show, we present Episode 1: “The Fight for a True Democracy.”

This episode includes scenes of graphic violence.

2020 Census Campaign

OUR VOTE IS OUR POWER, USE IT!

Per California/Hawaii NAACP President Alice A. Huffman, PhD, “We must face the local agenda in California. One of the issues we cannot drop the ball on is redistricting. We must get everyone counted to ensure the census count is real, and redistricting is based on actual numbers. We also have Congressional and State races we must tend to, for the November elections are very important.

INCREASING OPPORTUNITIES THROUGH CENSUS 2020

With the 2020 Census less than a year away, many concerned government officials, elected leaders, researchers, foundations and community organizations are preparing for the decennial 2020 Census. Communities of color have historically been undercounted in the United States of America. The Three-Fifths Compromise of the Constitutional Convention in 1787 counted enslaved Black people as three-fifths of a person in apportioning congressional districts for the U.S. House of Representatives. Since then, the Census has severely undercounted the Black population, to great disadvantage in representation, resources and power.
