    How redlining segregated Philadelphia
    Or consider public housing, which began as a segregated service with different complexes designated for white and black workers. But by the 1950s, public housing became mostly populated by black Philadelphians, and so the location of the sites almost perfectly correlates with the areas of the city that HOLC rated D and colored red.

    First black astronaut honored on 50th anniversary of death
    CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) - America's first black astronaut, Air Force Maj. Robert Lawrence Jr., finally got full honors Friday on the 50th anniversary of his death. Several hundred people gathered at Kennedy Space Center to commemorate Lawrence, who almost certainly would have gone on to fly in space had he not died in a plane crash on Dec.

Momentum is building to create a community group to support parents/teachers/students of the Avery D. Harrington Elementary School at 53rd and Baltimore. And tonight is our second meeting! If you are free, please join us at The Art Church at 5219 Webster St. at 6pm. You don't need to have kids in schools to join or form a group like this so please don't let that be a deterrent. Nor do you need to be an educator. You just need to be interested and concerned about kids in your immediate communities (they grow up to be adults, you know!) Hope to see you tonight at the Art Church.
