    Is Philly In Denial About Its Jobs Problem? - The Philadelphia Citizen
    Deep in the recent jobs report number doled out by the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics, is a glimpse of what the unemployment situation in Philadelphia looks like. And, it doesn't look as good as it seems. The latest figures suggest we're chugging along, with the official national rate of 4.1 percent lulling the masses into premature satisfaction.

Today, we honor dreams of freedom and equality that civil rights activist Martin Luther King, Jr. built with the work of Horace Pippin, a self-taught artist and soldier who fought to make the world a freer place. During the First World War, Pippin served in the 15th New York Infantry and as a corporal in the 369th Colored Infantry, which the Germans called the “Hellfighters.” He said that the war “brought out all of the art” in him. Pippin kept illustrated journals of his experiences in the trenches and also produced peaceful scenes like this tranquil family setting found in room 12 of our galleries. Horace Pippin. Supper Time, c. 1940.

“If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.” - Martin Luther King Jr. Thanks to Curbed Philly for creating this excellent list of 40 ways to make Philly a better place (which includes volunteering at your local park!).

    40 small ways to make Philly a better place
    In today's world, it can be easy to feel either under- or overwhelmed-or both-by all the good and bad that's happening around us. But before you throw up your hands and toss in the towel, consider the words of Martin Luther King, Jr.: "If you can't fly then run, if you can't run then walk, if you can't walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward."
