    We Read Too is the Perfect App for Black Girl Nerds
    After watching Black Panther, so many Black girls exited the theater feeling unstoppable. They found heroes in the female characters; a vibrant and rich group of warriors, spies, lovers, scientists, and change makers... These women could do it all. But where are more characters like this in literature?

    How you can help Philly reimagine our civic spaces | Opinion
    Philadelphia's growing skyline is not the only sign of the city's ongoing renaissance. Recent and deep investment in the public spaces that bring us together is also a sure signal of our city's revival. This week, Philadelphians welcome two new park projects as they complete the first phase of their development: Centennial Commons in West Fairmount Park and the Rail Park in Callowhill.

    'Shocking' die-off of Africa's oldest baobabs: study
    Some of Africa's oldest and biggest baobab trees - a few dating all the way back to the ancient Greeks - have abruptly died, wholly or in part, in the past decade, researchers said Monday. The trees, aged between 1,100 and 2,500 years and some as wide as a bus is long, may have fallen victim to climate change, the team speculated.
