    Leslie Gibson Drops Out of State House Races - Gibson came under fire for his Twitter remarks about two students who survived the February 14 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. He wrote that one of the Parkland students was a "skinhead lesbian," the other a "bald-faced liar." Gibson later apologized to one of the students. (Main Public)

  • EVENT ANNOUNCEMENT: BEYOND BLACK PANTHER

    If Black Panther has inspired you, please join us to explore questions posed by the film:

    • What if there was a powerful entity -- in the movie it was the fictional nation of Wakanda, but in reality it could be a coalition of the world's richest nations and individuals -- decided to pool resources and change the world? How would that work? What would it look like? Would there be "unintended consequences"?
    • What role does pop culture play in opening the people's minds to what might be? Long before Obama became president, there were movies and TV shows that portrayed a black president of the US. Could the Black Panther movie (and hopefully its sequels) similarly open hearts and minds to a new era of thought?
