HOLIDAYS & FESTIVALS

BLACK HISTORY MONTH—Throughout February, we will add resources you’ll want to explore as you mark this nearly century-old observance, which is more important in 2018 than ever. In our Holidays & Festivals column about the observance, we begin with a basic question: Why is Black History Month in February? Yes, it has something to do with Frederick Douglass, but the way this historical connection played out may surprise you. Then, we turn to the organization associated with the founding of this traditional month and list the many issues the group hopes will be highlighted in the 2018 theme: “African Americans in Times of War.” Finally, we preview an important book that can help you respond to racism you might encounter in daily conversations—with accurate information, courtesy of young journalists.

Click this muddy image to read Suzy’s column.

GOD SIGNS—What a mess! The fire and mud in California dislocated countless families. Thank goodness for people like Karen Schloss Heimberg, who regards helping others as a core mission in life. In this week’s column, Suzy Farbman writes about Karen’s tireless efforts on behalf of needy people. And, Suzy explains the roots of Karen’s passion in the kindness of an early American movie pioneer who saved Karen’s father from the Nazis. It’s quite an inspiring story!

Remembering the Man who Photographed …

RODNEY CURTISAuthor, columnist and photographer Rodney Curtis provides this wonderful portrait of photographer Leonard Falce, a man who balanced classic, hard-nosed newspaper journalism with a kind heart and the spirit of a true mentor. And, by the way, he was a pretty great photographer, too! Yes, Leonard took this early photo of a youthful Elvis. (You’ll see the entire photo with Rodney’s column.)
