Wendy’s Window-The International Women of Courage Celebration Comes to Los Angeles!
March 7, 2019
In 1980, President Jimmy Carter proclaimed the first week of March as Women’s History Week.  Seven years later, Congress declared the entire month of March as Women’s History Month. I find it sadly ironic that we need legislative reminders to celebrate and remember the accomplishments of various people and communities.  However, I am grateful that the work of women is being celebrated nonetheless! Across the country, March 8thhas been designated as, “International Women’s Day” where people celebrate and honor women worldwide. ... read more »

A Life Well-Lived Dr. Clyde A. Luck, Jr.
September 27, 2018
After graduating from Howard University College of Medicine in 1959, Dr. Luck did his internship at Detroit Receiving Hospital, followed by a residency in General Surgery at St. Joseph Mercy Hospital and Detroit Receiving Hospital in the state of Michigan. In Los Angeles, California, a one year fellowship was completed with the Kaiser Permanente Foundation Hospital. In the summer of 1965 Dr. Luck returned to Detroit and engaged in a private practice; however, the memories of the California sunshine and the apparent successes of former classmates and best friends, Dr. John Greene and Dr. Edward Smith, beckoned him back to the Pacific coast to establish a practice not limited to referrals only but with an open door. This naturally coupled his involvement in local humanitarian, philanthropic and professional organizations: The Brotherhood Crusade, the One Hundred Black Men, the National Medical Association and the Drew Medical Society to name only a few. Dr Luck was also a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons. ... read more »

Children on the Front Lines
August 23, 2018
I am so proud of the Freedom Schools scholars who have learned they are following in the footsteps of children and youths who were the foot soldiers and infantry of the Civil Rights Movement. Some of their stories from the Movement are well known: six-year-old Ruby Bridges in New Orleans walked through White mobs to attend school—even praying for those jeering at her; the Little Rock Nine; the four little girls killed in the bombing of Birmingham’s 16th Street Baptist Church. Thousands of children were on the frontlines of history. Whether sung or unsung heroes, we owe all of them a debt of gratitude. ... read more »
