So check out the story of a high school history teacher and two of his students that are walking 527 miles to follow the 1857 successful escape route of two female runaway slaves. They are doing it to raise awareness and funds for modern day human trafficking. Now THAT is a dedicated history teacher.
Hillary Clinton’s nomination is historic, no matter what happens in November. I really like this piece in The Guardian that puts her accomplishment into historical perspective. “Let’s be clear what the democratic nomination means. The feminist movement that has been remaking American culture – and more slowly, its politics – just put a crack in the highest, hardest ceiling of all.”
It isn’t often that I get to post something from ESPN: Muhammad Ali is was one of our most photographed athletes ever, and today the sports network has posted a collection of the “Greatest’ photos you’ve never seen.” Check out the one with him and the Beatles hamming it up in a boxing ring.
Man, you gotta love some of the stuff that Kevin Levin regularly digs up and posts. Check out this story and video about a North Georgia good ol’ boy that likes to use mannequins in his front yard to recreate Civil War battles (Yep, check it out). Looks like the local government is going to put an end to his attempts to “educate” his community and draw in tourists.
