As president of the Madam Walker/A'Lelia Walker Family Archives, she shares the history of her famous ancestors through speeches, publications, documents, photographs and several public initiatives.
It was like standing front row at a parade of things I took for granted. Stairs, for example. Useful for moving between floors, for reaching your front door, for heading underground to catch a train to another part of the city. Codes regulate height and depth
It can be very deceptive. In the digital age, we feel inundated with news and information, and so it feels like we have more access to global news than ever before. As Caroline explains, that's actually not the case.

Justin Gillis of the New York Times recently raised the question of what journalists should properly call those who deny climate science. Are they "skeptics," as they generally call themselves, or something else?
I talked with Maciej Kozlowski, who served in the Polish embassy in the United States, became the ambassador to Israel, and was responsible for Middle Eastern affairs on his return to Poland, about his work on Christian-Jewish relations, the debate in Poland and Israel over the work of historian Jan Gross, and why a new liberal movement has yet to emerge in Poland today.
