North Chicago’s Be Well-Lake County aims to increase access to healthy food for Type 2 diabetics and others in food deserts. “It provides diabetes care and education for medically underserved patients in North Chicago.” Other similar programs have emerged where convenience stores participate in getting residents more access to healthy foods.

Media today is mostly as far from this as we can imagine. Yet, this kind of engaged, purposeful media would be a reality if we had communications policy that was grounded in a human rights framework.

Makani N. Themba May 1999- This is not a paper. It's a snapshot using words. It's a light scratch at deep matters in hopes of providing a departure point for discussion. The changes highlighted here are, of course, only the latest manifestations of cycles and other historical phenomena that have long been with us.

Technology is indeed the double-edged sword. It is often bridled into service of oppression. It is also an indispensable tool for organizers. Those of us on-line are able to communicate almost instantly, create our own media more cheaply, and communicate to thousands of people who are wired in a very short time. Still, I avoided considering the positive aspects of the emerging economies in order to cut this thing down to a reasonable reading length. I also avoided issues receiving (relatively) significant attention in the media (like the digital divide).

An Open Letter to First Lady Obama:

I must begin with the fact that I am an unabashed fan.  As an African American mother and wife, I am deeply inspired and proud of what you are already accomplishing in your Office.  Your efforts to turn the nation’s energy to public service, and your focus on the health and well being of our country’s children show unprecedented leadership driven by an obviously deep passion for justice.
