GUYANA: Extraordinary People: Cheddi Jagan and Sonny Ramphal – By Ian McDonald

By

Hardly a month or even a week went by in my working life without one or the other or both of these men appearing in the world’s headlines. It was exciting to play a small part in their big lives.

CHEDDI JAGAN

●    For everyone it was like a death in the family. Even those who opposed him all their lives felt the shock of a sort of bereavement.

BOOK REVIEW: Kimani Nehusi’s A People’s Political History of Guyana, 1838-1964 – By: Eusi Kwayana

OPINION: The Prices on Your Monopoly Board Hold a Dark Secret – Mary Pilon | The Atlantic

The property values of the popular game reflect a legacy of racism and inequality.

  Mary Pilon | The Atlantic

TAKE A GOOD LOOK AT A MONOPOLY BOARD. The most expensive properties, Park Place and Boardwalk, are marked in dark blue. Maybe you’ve drawn a card inviting you to “take a walk on the Boardwalk.” But that invitation wasn’t open to everyone when the game first took on its current form. Even though Black citizens comprised roughly a quarter of Atlantic City’s overall population at the time, the famed Boardwalk and its adjacent beaches were segregated.         Continue reading
