What do tennis star Serena Williams, U. Kamala Harris and businesswoman Mellody Hobson have in common? But despite these real-world examples of interracial relationships, a Pew Research Center report found that black women are the least likely group of women to marry, especially outside of their own race. Despite this, Judice said race was not an important factor for most of the people she interviewed for the book. Black women are the only group of women in America who cannot take for granted that if they seek marriage to a black man that there will be an ample supply of available men from which to choose. It is almost like the plight of black women looking for eligible partners is the elephant in the room. Between issues related to skin color, hair texture, and low self-esteem, it is more difficult for black women to talk about it publicly to draw attention to the problem. I am tired of meeting so many women who have suffered in silence and simply given up on having someone love them for who they are. I am writing this book because I have seen first-hand the sadness many black women live with who have never experienced a fulfilling romantic relationship. To be sure, many of these women lead productive and fulfilling lives without ever marrying, some even decide to have children without husbands, but a common thread I have observed among many is a wistfulness for a part of life which has been denied to them…a part of life all other groups of women take for granted.

It should probably come as no surprise that the first hit song to deal with the COVID pandemic is, yes, a viral phenomenon. It is also not surprising, to anyone who has paid attention to pop culture in recent years, that Cardi B, the irrepressible rapper and entertainer, has a hand — or, rather, a raspy, emphatic voice — in the new anthem. The result is comical and eerie, a song that plays the coronavirus for dark laughs while capturing the dread that everyone, everywhere, is experiencing — the sirens wailing in our heads as we confront a terrifying and invisible menace.
There are historical precedents, but they may offer little in the way of guidance. Most AIDS songs are circumspect and euphemistic: chronicles of a scourge that shall not be named. In troubled times, we turn to music for many reasons: for solace, for distraction, to calm the nerves, to touch the spiritual and ineffable. We seek comfort in tradition: in familiar melodies and lyrics, in the instant nostalgia trips and sense of belonging that beloved songs can provide.
The coronavirus crisis has already produced indelible moments of musical communion. Countless online videos have captured scenes of Italians under lockdown, playing and singing from apartment windows and balconies, their voices echoing in unison across abandoned streets. These serenades have a primal purity, exemplifying the age-old power of songs to unify and console.
Of course, sometimes a big singalong of a favorite tune can fall flat. The thing is obviously well-intentioned, but the optics are hard to take.

Chicago Transit Authority showed some pretty big balls for a debut album. The idea of recording extended songs with complex arrangements on an introductory project is unheard of now — and was probably frowned upon back in when the album came out, as well. Robert Lamm, not to be outdone, chimes in with a fiery Hammond organ part which recalls the original Steve Winwood arrangement, but in no way attempts to copy it.

The Best Songs of 2020 (So Far)
While the upcoming part documentary on the Chicago Bulls season, The Last Dance , is highly anticipated, the star of the series, NBA icon Michael Jordan, is concerned that the series doesn’t paint the prettiest picture of him as a teammate. Jordan was notoriously competitive, and just as he held himself to an extremely high standard during his playing days, he did the same with his teammates.
And while he did win six NBA titles leading the Bulls with that style, it could seem a bit extreme or excessive to an average observer. But you have to realize that the reason why I was treating him like that is because I needed him to be tough in the playoffs and we’re facing the Indiana’s and Miami’s and New York’s in the Eastern Conference.

At the time, Chief Keef was 16 years old, with a bubbling street single. These two videos were an introduction to the fandom behind Chief Keef. But, later in the year, when Keef released his debut album, Finally Rich , it sold only a disappointing 50, copies in its first week. The music industry overreacted, declaring drill a fad. Drill was one of the first music scenes to exist almost exclusively via videos and streaming; physical CDs and iTunes downloads were irrelevant.
While the mainstream music industry was questioning the legitimacy of the genre, drill was busy setting the precedent for hip-hop for the rest of the decade.

A few decades make for too many stories to tell about the hundreds of talented, quirky dreamers, innovators, doers and idealists who have had a role in creating and nurturing our grand work in progress – CWHC. Being here, in this collective-with-mission, is hard, easy, sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes contentious and often hilarious.
I believe humor has seen us through. The collective lives on, in one form or other. We change and refine it to meet the challenges of our mission. We expand our mission to become more and more inclusive.

For a brief period before they shortened their name to Chicago and became boring — and for my money it was very brief, and they became very boring — this big group with an ever-changing but hardly memorable line-up were a tanked-up rock band. Their debut album in ’69 was a double, they had a political edge as befitted the volatile times they had formed in ’67 in, yes, Chicago and moved to LA in ’68 and Jimi Hendrix was a great admirer of Terry Kath’s guitar work which was sometimes saturated in feedback.
They were one of the era’s great “jamming” bands and extended out versions of their chosen material covers like I’m A Man, or originals. This prog-rock treatment more rock than prog of the Spencer Davis Group’s hit was one of the highpoints of that impressive debut album. Then they became simply Chicago and they started springing radio-friendly hits and it became easy to lose interest in a band with an ever-changing line-up — and which simply numbered its albums rather than named them.
But for a taste of Chicago before the anonymity set in — and if you only know them for classic hits ballads — this is taste of what they once were. For more oddities, one-offs or songs with an interesting backstory get daily updates From the Vaults. CTA’s version of “I’m a Man” is an absolute blinder! They rhythms and percussions are so tight you would swear it was a black or Latin American band – something to really get your foot tapping. This track is worth the price of the album on its own – highly recommended you need the extended version though – the shortened version just doesn’t cut the mustard like the longer one.
