  • INDIANAPOLIS – “Make America Great Again?” As a child growing up in the San Francisco Bay Area I was aware of the civil rights and voting rights movements as they were taking place right at that time in what was called the Deep South, but I did not personally know of anyone participating in those activities. I did understand from the stories told to me by the elders of my family, especially on my mother’s side, that they had migrated to California from Louisiana because of the racism and oppressive economic conditions that kept so many Black families stagnant and systematically prevented them from progressing. So even though they were landowners, my great-grandmother, her 15 young adult children, and their families headed west. After all, my grandfather Rafe Taylor told me, in Louisiana if he was walking down a street and a white person was on the same side of the road, especially a white woman, he would have to cross the road or risk getting lynched. Those day-to-day experiences, among others, were just too much to bear. America wasn’t so great at that time.

  • Rest in Peace Gregg Allman
    My sons and I had a long time saying: "And on the Seventh Day, God created the Allman Brothers." It amazed me that my sons, some 35 years younger than I, gravitated to some of my most beloved rock n' roll and that included the Allman Brothers. Founder Gregg Allman passed away on Saturday at age 69. The New York Times observed that Gregg Allman was the "principal architects of a taut, improvisatory fusion of blues, jazz, country and rock that — streamlined by inheritors like Lynyrd Skynyrd and the Marshall Tucker Band — became the Southern rock of the 1970s." I remember the Allman Brothers playing the night before the 1979 Indianapolis 500 at Market Square Arena (Dickie Betts got mad during the show, slammed the mic on the stage and stormed off). My simple eulogy is that Gregg Allman and his landmark band consistently stirred my soul. Rest In Peace. - Brian A. Howey, publisher
