The Democratic race to the White House reaches South Carolina, where presidential candidates seek the support of African American voters, an influential voting block for the Democratic Party. “Historically on the Democratic side, the individual that has won the primary in South Carolina usually goes on and captures the nomination, but I think things could be very different this time,” says Kendall D. Deas, a political science professor at the College of Charleston.

Roxane Gay’s Book Club: ‘Red at the Bone’ Is Just Like the Movie ‘Speed’ (Extended Cut)

This time, the “Bad Feminist” author is joined by Elizabeth Acevedo, author of the award-winning YA novel “The Poet X”; Morgan Jerkins, journalist and best-selling author of “This Will Be My Undoing”; and Josh Gondelman, comedian and writer for “Desus & Mero” and author of “Nice Try.”

“Red at the Bone” is the second adult novel for Woodson, who made her name as a YA writer. Set in Brooklyn, it spans several generations of an African-American family, touching on issues of class, parenthood, race, and community. Gay called the book “stunningly written” and praised it for its prose and lush descriptions, but she said she felt like “there were 100 pages missing.”

In US capital, teen honors victims of ‘every day’ gun violence | AFP

On the brick wall of an arts center in a Washington alley, a mural depicts the faces of five African-American teens shot dead in 2017 and 2018 in the United States capital. In a country where spectacular mass shootings have become more frequent, the mural is a reminder of a far more common gun crime, in which African Americans are too often the victims.

Mayor James Knowles III talks about how Michael Brown’s death changed Ferguson

James Knowles III, who is white, was re-elected to a third three-year term last year. He said the election was evidence that despite those who speak out at council meetings, he has plenty of support, including in the black community. Knowles, 40, is proud of the work Ferguson has done to reform its police and court practices, reforms that he points out began weeks after Brown’s death, long before they were mandated by a 2016 agreement with the Justice Department. The Ferguson Police Department drew heavy criticism in 2014 for many reasons: It had only three black officers out of 53 in a city that is two-thirds African American. Police were accused of racial profiling in traffic stops, of treating blacks with aggression. Today, Knowles said, the department is almost evenly split between white and black officers. Officers now wear body cameras. They’re more involved with people rather than just reacting to crime.
