Katherine Johnson, one of the Hidden Figures “human computers”, turned 100 years old this Sunday, August 26th. The Daily Press notes that on Saturday she visited her alma mater, West Virginia State University, for the unveiling of a 7-foot statue in her honor and the creation of an endowed scholarship in her name. During an interview when asked what she thought was the key to such a long and healthy life, her reply was “I’m lucky. Very lucky.” (h/t to AGD)
Since our platform is about expressing ideas and ideals instead of cash flow, clicks, or fundraising, we have the freedom to include a wide range of topics and formats that might not work elsewhere. We don’t need or want paid content, promotional materials, or story lines designed to please donors.
So the idea here is to present videos one or more of the editors feel speaks to them. Sometimes it will be news. Sometimes it will be history. And a lot of the time it will be culture. You can not and should not separate these things: it is diversity and intersectionality that makes our movement strong.
