I love @shmabelia ’s writing & the insight offered into Philip Keith’s artistry. #ARTery25  “I seek to have my work encompass more of the Black experience — or more just the human experience. I don’t want it to be focused just on this moment of struggle.” |

Some Good News. Life Expectancy Gap Between Black and White Americans Closes Nearly 50% in 30 Years. Reductions in Black deaths by cancer, HIV, homicide, and fetal and neonatal conditions especially important in closing gaps @brosehuber  @PNASNews  :
