Unseen Cuba: First aerial photographs reveal island’s spectacular beauty

Here’s Cuba as you’ve never seen it before. Lithuanian aerial photographer and publisher Marius Jovaiša is the first artist to receive government permission to fly over the country and photograph it from above.

Slavery7215

Frederick Douglass told a crowd gathered in Rochester, N.Y., on July 5, 1852 that to slaves the white man’s celebration of the Fourth of July is a “sham.” And today, the gross injustice and cruelty he was talking about are still existent.

Published: July 2, 2015 | Authors: | NationofChange | Op-Ed

“What, to the American slave, is your 4th of July?” asked Frederick Douglass of the crowd gathered at Corinthian Hall in Rochester, N.Y., on July 5, 1852. “I answer,” he continued, “a day that reveals to him, more than all other days in the year, the gross injustice and cruelty to which lie is the constant victim.
