“It upsets me to the point I just want to quit and not go to school at all." - Aaron Morris, 15

@andylocal digs into the frustration of students in NYC homeless shelters with spotty or no Wi-Fi, the legal fight for connection and the city's response.

Troop 6000 is a Girl Scout troop specially designed by Girl Scouts of Greater NY to serve the thousands of girls living in the NYC shelter system. All proceeds from each box of cookies sold by Troop 6000.

NEW: It wasn't actually Warnock's dog.

My story on how Alvin the beagle helped deliver the first Black senator in Georgia and a Democratic-controlled Senate — and what it says about race and politics in America in 2021.

President-elect Joe Biden will cancel President Trump’s 1776 Commission, which released a report on Monday that has been derided by many mainstream historians for distorting the history of slavery in the United States.

Quoted @nytimes

“It’s my way of acknowledging the momentous occasion that is coming.” Women across the U.S. have pledged to wear pearls on Inauguration Day to honor Vice President-elect Kamala Harris and her signature accessory.

“They represent sisterhood,” said Darnell-Jamal Lisby, a fashion historian. They are also the symbol of Ms. Harris’s sorority, Alpha Kappa Alpha, which she joined while at Howard, a historically Black college.

Look at Martin Luther King with his fraternity brothers in Boston, in top hat and tails, so happy he looks like he's about to pop his buttons.

“He asked us all to refrain from using profanity in his presence," one of them recalled.

.

I love every paragraph of this story: Martin and Coretta in Boston before they returned south and made history.

As you honor my father today, please honor my mother, as well. She was the architect of the King Legacy and founder of @TheKingCenter, which she founded less than three months after Daddy died. Without #CorettaScottKing, there would be no #MLKDay. #MLK  #BelovedCommunity

“My first thought was, ‘How short he seems,’ and the second was, ‘How unimpressive he looks,’” Coretta wrote.

Wonderful account of how MLK and Coretta met, during their Boston years, from Clennon King. For him she left Beacon Hill and moved to Roxbury.

Quoted @literati

The January selection for @StephenCurry30's book club, STAY UNDERRATED, is Troop 6000 by @kitastew. When a young, homeless mother of five decides to found @OGTroop6000, her spark of good ignites the fire of hope for a community of overlooked girls. ⁠

I am so happy that @StephenCurry30 is going to spread Troop 6000 to a wider audience through his book club. Let's goooooooo! Stay lit! #stayunderrated #troop6000 @girlscoutsnyc @girlscouts @randomhouse @literati
