Supervisor Taylor and Dream Team United host outdoor Thanksgiving feast Milwaukee County Supervisor Sequanna Taylor and Dream Team United came together to host an outdoor community Thanksgiving feast on Thursday, November 26, 2020, at a vacant lot on the corner of Center and 35th streets. A free, traditional Thanksgiving meal was provided to attendees along with giveaways of winter hats, gloves, socks and groceries. “The holiday season can be difficult, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Supervisor Taylor. “This Thanksgiving feast gives us the opportunity to safely come together and make sure that everyone in the community is able to have a warm meal and needed winter supplies as the weather gets colder.”

President-elect Biden chooses all-female White House press team President-elect Joe Biden has named an all-female senior communications team for his upcoming administration. More than half of the seven positions will be filled by women of color. The choices are part of Biden’s effort to create an administration that, in his words, “actually looks like America.” Biden’s campaign communications director, Kate Bedingfield, will serve as the White House communications director. She served in a similar position for Biden when he was vice president during the administration of President Barack Obama. Jen Psaki will serve as his press secretary. She held several positions in communications during Obama’s administration, including as State Department spokesperson.

Emmett Till house poised to take first step toward official landmark status The Chicago house of Emmett Till, whose brutal murder in Mississippi helped spark the civil rights movement, is expected to take the first step toward official city landmark status on December 3, 2020. The Commission on Chicago Landmarks will consider a recommendation for the house, at 6427 S. St. Lawrence Ave., beginning a multistep process that would protect it from significant changes or demolition. The expected vote will take place days after the 65th anniversary of Till’s murder on Aug. 28, 1955 and against the backdrop of nationwide unrest sparked by the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis and the shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha. The red brick two-flat was the home of Till and his mother, Mamie Till-Mobley, before he traveled to Mississippi in the summer of 1955 to visit relatives. The 14-year-old was tortured and murdered for allegedly whistling at a white woman at a convenience store.

However, with 2020 being such a tough year for many of us, I want to run this “feel-good” story before my usual Year-In-Review. A “feel-good” story is one that brings a smile to one’s face and makes them feel happy. The story of the Rev. and Mrs. Hill is one of those stories.

Consumer Reports explains how to give to a charity for the holidays The holidays are a time for giving to loved ones, friends, and often to charity. But with so many people dealing with the impact of COVID-19, giving might be even more important this year. Before you open your wallet, you might want to follow Consumer Reports’ advice to maximize your contribution to help your community. Charities differ a lot in how much of the money they raise goes for programs instead of covering their expenses. Effective charities devote much more of their operating budget to the services they provide than to their other expenditures, like

They welcome most donated food, but monetary donations may have a bigger impact because food banks can buy food wholesale and in bulk.

UR HISTORY

AN EXPLORATION OF OUR LIVES AND LEGACIES

Sixty-five years ago this week, Rosa Parks stood up for civil rights by sitting down Sixty-five years ago on December 1, 42-year-old Rosa Parks boarded a bus in Montgomery, Alabama, to head home after working at her job as a seamstress. At the time, public buses in the city were segregated per city law, and the first 10 seats were permanently reserved for white passengers. A diagram at the National Archives shows Parks and three other Black passengers were seated in the first row behind those 10 seats. However, when the bus became crowded in the evening rush, the driver told Parks and the other three Black riders to move back. Parks refused. The bus driver, James Blake, believed he had the right to move the segregation line on the bus and called the police. Parks was arrested by officers Day and Mixon. In her arrest report, the officers said she was charged with chapter 6 section 11

of the Montgomery City Code. That law read, in part, "it shall be unlawful for any passenger to refuse or fail to take a seat among those assigned to the race to which he belongs." Parks was briefly jailed before Civil Rights leaders E.D. Nixon bailed her out, along with two white friends, attorney Clifford Durr and his wife, Virginia. When Parks was convicted under city law, she was fined a total of $14.

lar case in the U.S. District Court -- Browder v. Gayle -ruled that racial segregation on public buses was unconstitutional on June 4, 1956. That ruling was upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court on Nov. 13, 1956.

so many ways, Rosa Parks brought America home to our founders' dream." Parks died on Oct. 24, 2005, at the age of 92. Parks was not the first Black woman to face persecution for violating policies related to segregation on public buses. Months before Parks' arrest, 15-year-old Claudette Colvin was arrested for not giving up her seat on a bus. Colvin was also active in local civil rights communities, including with the NAACP Youth Council. However, according to "Rediscovering Black History" at the National Archives, some members of the civil rights community "felt that she did not hold the appropriate image to be a test case against Jim Crow policies."
