Unique summer camp teaches kids diversity through food

There is the old adage, “The way to the heart is through the stomach”. Guess it works for understanding and acceptance too! (Take a hint, Chicago!)

A unique Portland summer camp is teaching kids what makes diversity so much fun, through food and games.

These kinds of conversations are tough, but more than ever, it’s important we have them.

These kinds of conversations are tough, but more than ever, it’s important we have them.

Building opportunity through basketball in Africa

A childhood love of sports mixed with compassion for others is changing the lives of Zimbabwean youth.

With the help of a basketball Hall of Famer, the Indiana Pacers, many volunteers, a few donkey carts and tons of bricks, Gus Chikamba is giving the potentially life-changing gift of sports to thousands of boys and girls in his homeland of Zimbabwe.

In 1950, Malcolm wrote a letter to President Harry Truman declaring himself a Communist opposed to the Korean War. This started the surveillance of the FBI that would last until his death. In one document, FBI director J. Edgar Hoover told the agency’s New York office to “do something about Malcolm X.” But in 1958, an FBI informant called him a man “of high moral character” who “neither smokes nor drinks" and hardly ever late for an appointment. Some believe that the FBI, who had many informants inside the Nation of Islam, knew about the plan to assassinate Malcolm but intentionally turned a blind eye to it. #malcolmx #blackhistory #picoftheday

The "T" in Washington's middle name stands for Taliaferro, an italian name given to him by his mother. Amazingly, at age 16, he walked from Malden, West Virginia all the way to Hampton, Virginia for college. Google maps says its a 386 mile trip. #knowledge #picoftheday

South Africa's District Six Cookbook Helps Preserve A Lost Community

After being displaced by the apartheid, the citizens of South Africa's District Six preserved their culture in a way that warms both the heart and the stomach.

By the 1980s, 60,000 people had been forcibly removed from this mixed-race section of Cape Town. But the area's food traditions reflect the spirit of helpmekaar, an Afrikaans term for mutual support.
