      Gwendolyn Magee’s maiden name was Gwendolyn Ann Jones.

      Would one of you three ladies change her last name to “Magee” in my above post?

  4. Hey Chicas. Taking a break. I’m working my butt off dusting, cleaning, rearranging for the holidays. Actually I’ll be working off & on like this until Thanksgiving. I want to get things done and go grocery shopping later tonight. I am tired.

    “African American Museum Digitizes Vintage Photos For Black Families
    The institution created the Community Curation Program to help Black families digitize old photos and footage.

    The museum launched a free program—dubbed the Community Curation Program—which provides Black families with the tools and equipment needed to preserve old photographs and footage by converting them into digital records, the news outlet writes. The program is supported by the Robert Frederick Smith Fund and travels to different cities across the country. The museum also provides the same equipment at the institution in Washington. One of the project’s latest stops was at the Impact Hub Baltimore in Station North, Maryland.

    “In a very radical way, we recognize the importance of these vernacular, homemade images, this folk cinema, as an alternate history to the kinds of history that the mass media tells,” museum media archivist Walter Forsberg told The Baltimore Sun. “We wanted to render a public service free of charge because we knew there was a lot of material out there trapped on obsolete formats.”

    Krewasky A. Salter, another museum curator, told the news outlet that the museum hopes to include some of the images, footage, and objects in their upcoming exhibitions; stating that the content provided by families will help fill in missing gaps in history.

    “This victory is a major win for government accountability and transparency,” said Lisa Graybill, deputy legal director of the SPLC. “U.S. District Judge Pannell called DHS’ failure to conduct a sufficient search of its records ‘troubling,’ noting, among other things, that the failure to disclose required field operations forms was a ‘glaring omission.’

    “The court’s holding reminds us all that the Department of Homeland Security has to abide by the Freedom of Information Act, and now it must demonstrate to the court’s satisfaction that it has made an adequate effort to do so,” Graybill said. “Being able to feel safe in the privacy of our homes is something most Americans cherish. We have the right to know what steps ICE is taking when it executes home raids that abridge that privacy, and the court’s decision takes us one step closer to vindicating that right.”
