Are you ready to vote? Are you registered?

Aug. 1 is Equal Pay Day for African-American women. We work harder, longer, and for less remuneration than other women do. What are we going to do about it?

Tease photo

Republicans keep saying they want to reach out to people of color, but ignoring Black people suggests that they are thinking about us as much as George Bush did in 2005.

Tease photo

MALVEAUX: From Mary Church Terrell to Barbara Lee — Black Women in the Peace Movement

In this Women's History Month, it makes sense to reflect on women and the peace movement, and especially on the African-American women who have been peace activists and have played a significant role in this movement.

Tease photo

History mostly swallowed the horror of the Slocum Massacre.

Tease photo

Tease photo

Tease photo

MALVEAUX: What Will You Sacrifice for Justice?

When the protests have been well-defined and include an end game, such as the University of Missouri protests that toppled a president and chancellor, they have been effective. When protests broadly address issues like comfort, they are less successful.

Tease photo

MALVEAUX: How the Holidays Expose Income Inequality

These holidays are more like an orgy of conspicuous consumption than a celebration of the Christ child’s birth.

Tease photo

MALVEAUX: Jannie Ligons is Woman of the Year

In our nation's sordid history, when Black women spoke, they found themselves denigrated or ignored. Jannie Ligons deserves to be acknowledged because she took a risk and may pay a price for outing a rouge police officer.

Tease photo

What does Justice Scalia mean by "lesser schools?"

Tease photo

Kudos to these student activists and to their demands. Still, symbolism is not enough.

Tease photo

MALVEAUX: What Does Terrorism Look Like?

We can expect more security and scrutiny and appropriately so. It is also unfortunately likely, however, that some of the scrutiny will have an element of profiling (especially racial profiling) involved, since many (perhaps most) of the ISIS terrorists are young, male and Muslim.

You can run, but you can't hide from racism.

Tease photo

Tease photo

MALVEAUX: No Due Process for 'Standing While Black'

Due process is the legal requirement that the state must respect all the legal rights due to a person. When did James Blake get due process?
