In our post-Great Migration America, it’s easy to forget that 90 percent of all African-American people lived in the South as late as 1910, and their presence represented a formidable threat to the former Confederates. This was especially so in South Carolina, Mississippi and Louisiana, which had majority-black populations, as well as in nearby Florida, Alabama and Georgia. During Reconstruction, South Carolinians made black officeholders a majority in the lower house of the state’s General Assembly and celebrated the service of black lieutenant governors, a secretary of state, a treasurer, a state Supreme Court justice and a speaker of the House. Overall, more than 2,000 black officeholders would be elected during Reconstruction throughout the South, including, by 1901, a total of 20 black congressmen and two United States senators, both from Mississippi. The year 1901 denoted a mournful milestone in black history. By that year, Southern efforts to disenfranchise black men had been brutally effective, and no African-American would represent a Southern state in Congress again for more than 70 years. The Yankees’ tenuous rotation depth took a significant hit Tuesday when the right-hander Luis Severino was found to have rotator cuff inflammation in his throwing shoulder, almost certainly ruling him out as the team’s opening day starter on March 28.
For dinner tonight, the opposite of feasting: a simple dish of Japanese oyakodon (above), a soupy rice bowl with chicken and egg, sweet and salty and easy-delicious. The Texas Civil Rights Project found that at least 272 adults were separated from a child family member in the six months after Trump supposedly ended family separation. The youngest to be separated was an 8-month-old girl taken from her mother.Delivered in 2-3 bussiness days
Haunted: The villain is Ghost, scorned by New York Magazine's Vulture as a "C-tier comics character." She seems to have stolen some technology and is planning to take over the world with it, as all supervillains do. In the comics, Ghost was male, but in the movie, she's played by Hannah John-Kamen. "The Ghost character could be male, female, anything, so it just seemed more interesting to us [to cast a woman]," director Peyton Reed told Entertainment Weekly. "Ghost's primary power is the ability to 'phase,' which allows Ghost to move through solid matter. She has all sorts of strange versions of that phasing power -- it proves quite difficult for Ant-Man and Wasp to deal with." Ashley Joan Ellerin and Samuel Joseph Boyar were married April 27 at the Hotel ZaZa in Houston. Rabbi David Lyon officiated.
At one point he stands on an escalator belting, “I’m here! I’m here!” foreshadowing the famous anthem in Goldman and Sondheim’s own “Follies” taken up late in life by Stritch. The monsters in “A Vigilante” look deceptively ordinary. One wears an everyday business suit and tie; another is dressed in a simple T-shirt and pants, though it’s hard to make out what he’s wearing because he’s trussed up, on his knees, beaten down. Abusers, each endures the kind of ostensibly righteous retribution that tends to be visited on men by other men in exploitation flicks like “Death Wish.” On occasion, a woman steps into the vigilante role — at times, after she’s raped, as in “I Spit on Your Grave” — seeking personal payback through a violent cleansing that can widen into a feminist critique.Delivered in 2-3 bussiness days
Log InMr. Webb, now 72, graduated from the Naval Academy in 1968 and served in Vietnam as a Marine rifle platoon and company commander. He was wounded twice and awarded the Navy Cross, a prestigious award that ranks just below the Medal of Honor, along with other valor awards. PALM BEACH, Fla. — Behind the clipped hedges of President Trump’s sumptuous private clubs in South Florida, including his Mar-a-Lago estate where he has spent many getaway weekends, there has long been a built-in contradiction to the policy the president has repeatedly described as “America First.”
