Is Clinton Or Stein Eligible To Be President?

By Michael September 19, 2016 2

Here we go again? Now that the birther issue has finally been put to bed by Donald Trump, a new constitutional question arises concerning eligibility to serve as President of the United States. This election cycle the issue of eligibility does not center on citizenship, but on sex.

Albeit, this specter is raised only by this writer, but it is not too far-fetched to imagine that Donald Trump, should he lose the 2016 General Election, would raise this question. After all he spent six years and good money investigating where the first American president of African descent was born in an attempt, not to delegitimize the Barack Obama presidency, but to have cause to remove him from office. read more

Sarah Stringer Heart and Soul of Tuskegee

By Michael September 3, 2016 7

Sarah Stringer, oh how my heart aches for you.

As far as I know, we have never met. I arrived on the campus of Tuskegee Institute, August 20, 1970. You were beginning your second year of employment. A year later I would meet your cousin Jackie Stringer. Jackie was a roommate of a young lady from Fairfield, Alabama that I would visit from time to time. I met your brother, a year or two ago. We sat next to each other at the funeral services for Jim Flournoy, who bled crimson and gold like you and I bleed it today. read more
