Dorothy Irene Height, longtime president of the National Council of Negro Women the leading female voice of the 1960s civil rights movement, poses in front of her portrait inside the “Freedom’s Sisters” exhibition at the Cincinnati Museum Center, in Cincinnati, wearing her signature-style Bene’ hat.
Summary: Y/N and Andy had been best friends for as long as they could remember. Cincinnati was her home and though she found herself falling harder and harder for him with each day, she could never bring herself to admit it. It isn’t until she loses him to the music industry that she realizes that hiding her feelings was the worst decision she could have made… especially when she finds herself in a relationship with a man who couldn’t give any less of a shit about her.

Blacks are continuously getting killed by the racists. This Ella Baker quote from 1964 sounds relevant to today. This shows that times have not changed after the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Blacks must think like Baker and continue to fight until they get their justice and the killing stops.
Devon Still delivers daughter, Leah, her ESPY award
Leah Still, along with her father, Cincinnati Bengals defensive lineman Devon Still, were recognized at the ESPYs with the Jimmy V Perseverance award for her courageous battle with cancer. Unfortunately, Leah wasn’t able to attend the awards ceremony, as her immune system isn’t yet strong enough for her to travel.
Devon attended the ceremony to accept the award on his and her behalf. He also delivered a powerful and emotional speech upon accepting the award.
While Leah wasn’t able to receive her ESPY award Wednesday night, she didn’t have to wait long to get her hands on the trophy as Devon returned home Thursday to deliver the goods to his daughter.
Devon’s full comment reads as follows: “This espy might have both of our names on it but this is Leah’s trophy! Like I said last night what I do is easy, she has the hard job. Like a true fighter she showed true perseverance throughout her battle with cancer and I couldn’t be any prouder. #leahstrong”
