    Analysis: Blacks stopped at much higher rate indoors in Center City - Philly
    The controversial arrest of two black men at a Center City Starbucks last Thursday has reignited the debate about racial profiling by police and businesses in Philadelphia and around the country.

Happy Birthday to Alfred Maurer, who was born on this day in 1868. Maurer was an American modernist painter and a good friend of Dr. Albert Barnes. In “Still Life,” the use of bold colors and juxtaposition of decorative patterns remind us of a work by Henri Matisse, whom Maurer greatly admired. 🎨 Alfred Maurer. “Still Life,” c. 1909–1910.
