Melinda Gates Is Donating $250,000 to Fund a Literary Award Just for Women | @oprahmagazine

Got here just in time to see @ParkBoard reopen the gates on the Stanley Park Seawall after being closed due to damage from this week’s storm and king tides. Sure is pretty here! Do watch for remaining warning markers in spine parts.

As we celebrate Black History Month and Jackie Robinson’s 100th birthday, we celebrate the life of all whose courage opened the gates for everybody, and in the process, made America better.
