She knew Black kids around the country were watching Thursday night’s ESPN2 telecast, waiting to be inspired and hoping to follow in the footsteps of someone who looked like them. She even thought of MacNolia Cox, who in 1936 became the first...

Where oh where is my hair?

By Dr. James L. Snyder   I must confess I sometimes get so busy that certain things have slipped my mind. I don't do this intentionally, but I try to prioritize things in my life. With so many things going on, it is tough to keep up-to-date with everything, even personal items. This is not true with the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. No matter how busy her day is, she always keeps up with everything. She knows things that are happening a week before they actually happen. How she does that, I don't know, and trust me, I am not going to inquire. I just...

As you’re leaving the screening, if there are lines queued-up for the next show already, run up to them goggle-eyed and cry, “Everybody dies at the end!!” A wave of conflicting emotions will pass visibly among the line-standers culminating very quickly in rage at you for spoiling the end of the movie they’ve been waiting to see. You...

By Dr. James L. Snyder   Choices are a very important part of our everyday life. I am what I am today because of choices I made yesterday. I would like to blame someone else, but the truth of the matter is, I am what I am because of my choices. I must confess that there are a lot of bad choices I have made throughout my life. I will not name them right here, in fact, I'm trying to forget most of them. It’s a good thing I can’t relive yesterday. However, I have made a few choices that I have made in my life that has been very good. I don't focus on...
