DEMOS RELAUNCHES EMERGING VOICES FELLOWSHIP WITH SCHOLAR, JOURNALIST CALEB GAYLE


New York, NY  Demos, a progressive public policy organization, announced today that it has selected scholar and journalist Caleb J. Gayle as its Emerging Voices Fellow for 2018-2019. Mr. Gayle will write commentaries and investigative articles on efforts to restrict the voting rights of people of color in states across the country.

Mr. Gayle will deliver fresh evidence and perspectives on the disenfranchising and intimidation of voters, while raising awareness of the deplorable tactics that marginalize the votes of African Americans, Latinos and other people of color. Mr. Gayle's articles and essays have appeared in many publications, including The New York Times, New Republic, The Guardian, Boston Globe, Boston Magazine, The Three Penny Review, The Hill, The Daily Beast, and others.


"Restrictive voting tactics and laws are an incursion of the basic tenets of a democracy," said Mr. Gayle, noting that his grandparents, who came to the United States from Jamaica, always looked forward to voting. "It's been an ingrained component of what I conceive of as a well- functioning democracy, and any incursion on voting, for any person, means that our democracy is getting weaker. That's troubling. And, it should be troubling to everyone."

COLLABORATIVE WWI CENTENNIAL PROJECT BRINGS FORGOTTEN STORIES FROM THE BLACK PRESS ON AFRICAN AMERICANS IN THE WWI ERA TO A WORLDWIDE AUDIENCE THROUGH VIRTUAL REALITY TECHNOLOGY

Hidden voices. Buried history.

Upon their return from war, black veterans resisted second-class citizenship. This black sergeant stands defiantly before a white private during the Chicago Race Riot of 1919. According to historian Chad Williams, the "presence and inspiration of black veterans, particularly those of the 370th Infantry Regiment was critical to black Chicagoans forced to defend themselves from white aggression."

Nationwide -- Imagine yourself standing on a street corner in the South Side of present day Chicago. There doesn't seem to be anything extraordinary about this spot - there are buildings, cars driving by. Then suddenly, your surroundings change. You're in the middle of the 1919 "Red Summer" when post-World War I social and racial tensions boiled over into violence. You're witnessing a confrontation outside of an old lunch room and cigar shop.

You're looking at an old photo of a black WWI veteran and a white militiaman. You're looking at the Chicago Race Riot of 1919, by the end of which 38 would be dead, more than 500 injured and 1,000 black families left homeless.

Forgotten stories like these are being made available to students nationwide through immersive storytelling technology thanks to a collaborative partnership with Google Expeditions, the Friends of the Victory Memorial and the West Virginia University Reed College of Media Innovation Center.

RANDOM THOUGHTS: 
On Halloween, Love, The Vote, and the Mythic Presumption of American Innocence
by Earl Hazell

=> I love Halloween.  I’m proud of my friends who represented at the end of last month with imaginative stuff.  Especially the parents, who led by example and created a magical space for their children's self-expression and imagination.

=> Churchill once said, "Democracy is the worst form of government, with the exception of all of the others."  I have been, in this life, a colleague, a competitor; an adversary, a best friend, an acquaintance; a contrarian, a cheerleader; an employee, an employer; a child of the Bronx and a citizen of the world; a Sagittarian (sun), Gemini (moon), Libra (rising) and Scorpio (Venus); a son, grandson, great-grandson, nephew, and brother--along with an uncle, cousin and frightened/confused but loyal, committed and proud father.

And while all of these relationships (and others) have made me what I am, and I treasure them all, nine years with my wife, Alexis has taught me that, on a bad day, marriage can be the worst of human relationships there are--with the exception of ALL of the others.  On a good day, to say nothing of great...

Like most people, I usually don't talk about hard times on social media.  Aaron Sorkin set it best: social media is a giant digital stage upon which everyone is "living their best lives" a la The Oprah; performing in their own eternal Halloween costume & role, with no one being their authentic self (at least on purpose). (I [obviously] am a musician who loves being a faux investigative journalist online.)  Hard times, or how they make us feel, for example, are not a part of the established narrative of most people on Facebook.

But I usually don't discuss the great times with my wife either; not even to say how they simultaneously overshadow and remove the shadows of bad times so often, so routinely, so magically, as to make me laugh at their memory.  I am a verbose dude, but there aren't words to accurately describe how my marriage has been a personal Balm in Gilead for my soul. Not even any of the roles I play online have scripts that poetic. If you ask me about my wife and my face lights up, trust: I'm a trained actor, but I'm not THAT good.  In my eyes, when you say her name, you are seeing joy.
