images-16

images-17

by Mark J. Drozdowski Popping open a Diet Coke, I sat down recently to pore over the mail’s latest delivery: The Journal of Blacks in Higher Education.

Winterize Your Car

images-18

by Brent Romans If you were to ask your car where it would want to live, and it just so happened to be a talking car, it would most likely say “Southern California.” “It’s warm there, the roads are fairly decent, and I might get to see a movie star,” it would say. If you […]
