    Remember this name: Tamir Harper, a kid from Southwest Philly, is going places.
    Remember the name Tamir Harper. At 18, the Southwest Philly kid has become a go-to speaker at education conferences both local and national. Superintendent William R. Hite Jr. considers Harper "remarkable," and Michelle Obama recently introduced him on stage in front of thousands of cheering students.

Congrats to our friends and partners from Community Solutions CDC on this great write-up about their Father's Day Block Party tomorrow! Go check it out if you can, they have lots of fun stuff in store. And Happy Father's Day in advance to all the dads in the community!

    How does West Philly celebrate Father's Day? With a 1,000-person block party
    West Philly likes block parties. A lot. Two years ago, it ranked first for the Philadelphia neighborhood with the most block parties in the entire city. So naturally, warm weather holidays often mean more of the same: outdoor fun featuring barbecues, bouncy castles, the closing of streets and re-routing of SEPTA buses.

    Queen Village makes room for memorial to a historic African American burial ground | Inga Saffron
    Over the course of his two-plus years in office, Mayor Kenney has been unable to make good on his signature campaign promise to rebuild the city's dilapidated rec centers. But last month his administration quietly took the first step toward demolishing a perfectly sound and heavily used Queen Village meeting hall.
