The strike was why my parents put me in a private school. I grew up on news of Ocean Hill-Brownsville. My father was a striking teacher.

Jewish people in American self-identify as mainstream white (what else do they self-identify as?). I doubt that these Jews identify as white. Beyond that from what I have been told prior to the mid-1960s the idea that Jews were white would seem laughable. They were not allowed in country clubs, the...

There used to be a number of stations in the 80s in my area that played late 50's early 60's music that I liked. Now I need to find those songs on CD or youtube or someplace else. I had a few CDs with the late 50's early 60's stuff that I liked on it. My daughter just copied the names of the songs ...

People with disabilities themselves have been largely absent from the public debate on abortion rights — until now. Disability has been used as something of a political football in the abortion debate. For decades, fetal abnormality and disability have been part of abortion-rights advocates’ argume...
