We’ve got a bit more news than usual this week since Sara’s on vacation, plus lots of other interesting things to read and watch.
We have another video heavy article this week. Let’s get to it!
Black History Month has come and gone and this past weekend marked the 50th anniversary of Bloody Sunday in Selma. But we still have a long way to go.

This week we’ve got tributes to the dearly departed, gun violence statistics, Freddie Mercury biopic news, and more. Let’s get right to it.
