The Radical Work of Healing

The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice.

- Martin Luther King Jr. -

The Radical Work of Healing

"Angela Davis and her sister Fania Davis were working for social justice before many of today's activists were born. From their childhood in segregated Birmingham, Alabama, where their friends were victims of the 16th Street Baptist Church bombing, to their association with the Black Panther Party and the Communist Party, to their work countering the prison-industrial complex, their lives have centered on lifting up the rights of African Americans." This powerful interview with the two sisters shares more about their inspiring journeys and the many dimensions of working for social justice in today's world. { read more }

The Tipping Point

Choose one thing you love about life on this planet, and make that your thing.

- Camille Seaman -

The Tipping Point

On her last photographic expedition to the Arctic, photographer Camille Seaman realized that the tipping point in global warming has been reached. Less than 500 miles from the North Pole, the snowless landscape was devastating. As we look at her beautiful photos we can ask with her, "What choices can I make to help shift humanity onto a healthier, more sustainable track?" { read more }

Be The Change

GivePhotos: Portraits for People Who've Never Been Photographed

Photography helps people to see.

- Bernice Abbott -

GivePhotos: Portraits for People Who've Never Been Photographed

"Given the utter ubiquity of photography in the USA, most Americans probably dont view photography as special. But in impoverished areas around the world, personal photos can be rare. On visits to her birthplace of Kolkata, India, Bipasha Shom frequently took portraits of people she met, and she was struck by how many people lacked access to a camera and had no family photos of her own." So she came up with an idea of how she could use instant film to bring photography to their doorsteps. Then she landed a set of donated instant cameras and film, and traveled back to India along with a photographer friend Julie Black, and her husband Chris Manley (who happens to be Director of Photography for the runaway hit series Mad Men). And just like that their project was launched, a heart-warming mission to gift photos to people who've never had access before to this simple pleasure. { read more }

Estella's Brilliant Bus

The best way to make children good is to make them happy.

- Oscar Wilde -

Estella's Brilliant Bus

Even after 50 years as an educator, Estella Pyfrom was not ready to slow down after retirement. When Estella realized that fewer students had access to computers after school, she and her husband spent their life savings on a mobile learning lab called Estella's Brilliant Bus. Now, Estella provides whatever services a community might need, from after-school tutoring to free food distribution. Her reward, the smiles on the faces of the children who look at her and say: "I did it." { read more }
