Black Is Beautiful | A collaborative effort to raise awareness for the injustices People of Color face daily.

The Black is Beautiful initiative is a collaborative effort among the brewing community and its customers, in an attempt to bring awareness to the injustices that many people of color face daily. Our mission is to bridge the gap that’s been around for ages and provide a platform to show that the brewing community is an inclusive place for everyone of any color. We are asking for all breweries and brewers far and wide to raise a glass with us in unison and participate in this collaboration.

A worthy cause and …  beer. Follow the link, and find a brewer near you. There’s sure to be one. In my hometown, it’s Giant Jones Brewery

Amazing Grace

June 26, 2015 ~ President Barack Obama  gives the eulogy for Rev. Clementa Pinckney, who was killed along with eight others when a gunman opened fire during a Bible study at his church in Charleston, South Carolina.

Then, we’re left with one of the most amazing moments of leadership — and an example of what it was like to have a real president.

Here’s the whole eulogy …

Catherine O’Hara’s performance on the dearly departed comedy was a career-topping triumph—and now feels like an allegory for our altered times. V.F. photographed her with a drone, and talked to her about her early friendship with Gilda Radner, flubbed auditions, and the curative power of gratitude.

LBJ.

May 22, 1964 ~

One of the greatest speeches ever by a sitting president. It’s well worth 20 minutes of your day — especially if you’re like our current president and you think the world revolves around you.
