    Depictions of race get real, complicated on 'Star,' 'This Is Us'

    Since watching "Hairspray Live" Wednesday, with its story of racial relations in 1962 Baltimore, I have been thinking a lot about race and television. One of my main thoughts: New network series like NBC's "This Is Us" and Fox's "Star," which debuts Wednesday, show how much more complex depictions...

    Baltimore-linked books that just might make page-turning gifts

    There are books that we don't choose to read as much as we get stalked by them. Certain titles practically fling themselves off the shelves and into our outspread hands, where they recline suggestively and ruffle their pages.

America's leaders are too predictable,...

  • Black students in urban schools deserve respect

    Black students in urban schools deserve respect

    When I first saw the video of the white teacher screaming a racist epithet at her black students, my instinct was to drive to Harlem Park Middle School so that teacher could scream the same thing at me and see if my response would be as cool as her students'. I'm doubtful. But I soon learned that...

    Towson University reverses course on police report

    Auditors: State wrongly charged disabled residents millions in fees

    For years, the state agency that oversees people with disabilities erroneously charged monthly fees to largely poor people who live in residential facilities.
