By Barney Blakeney  February 8 marked the 50th anniversary of the Orangeburg Massacre. It slipped past me – not the annual observance, but the recognition that this year was the 50th anniversary.

Justice is Not Just a Strong Sentence, but Also Reform

By Marquis Jenkins I wasn’t prepared to hear the news that Michael Slager, the police officer who shot and killed Walter Scott, would have to spend 20 years in prison for depriving him of his civil rights. His sentencing in federal court last month was unusual at best. As we’ve seen time and again, even…
