Image of originality

Images of the human experience have been captured as photographs for 150 years. Many of the best of those images have been housed in the UA's Center for Creative Photography archives for 25 years. "It's a gift from a goddess - definitely way out there as a repository of great work and it is only getting bigger and better," said Dan Budnik, a Tucson photographer featured at the CCP. Founded in 1975 by Ansel Adams and John P. Shaefer, then-University of Arizona president, the CCP was created to not only preserve the archived images and materials of photographers, but to also serve the community as an educational resource.    [More]

Though this might be news to the commission, it is certainly not news to the millions of racial and ethnic minorities living in this country. But now that the committee has come to this obvious conclusion, how is race targeting by the police going to change? Sadly, without a major attitude overhaul by the nation, there seems to be no end to it in sight.    [More]

One cool cat
[news] Few roles in the past decade have called for a black actor to play anyone more authoritative than Meteor Man. Powerful performances were inspired by historical figures like Malcolm X and Rubin "The Hurricane" Carter, but rare is the lead role for an African American sex symbol. However, with the resurrection of the racially motivated "Shaft," Samuel L. Jackson reestablishes the name of the 1970s debonair detective and proves in a big way that black is back.    [More]

"The government's 'benign neutrality' toward religion in this country is now nothing short of malevolent hostility."
