Every year, Valentine’s Day is during Black History Month; the two are not necessarily related but I do see a connection: love. This is not a sentimental love focused on heart candies with sweet messages (wonderful as they are). In the context of Black history, which is a human history, the love I am thinking of comes from those human beings who endured the fiery brutality of slavery because of the color of their skin — those who came through the blood of the slaughtered, weary years and silent tears. Theirs is a tireless love to live.

(02/09/24 7:00am)

Five-hundred-sixty-five miles from his hometown of Barrington Hills, Ill., 405 miles from his new home of Durham and 861 miles from Kansas City, Mo. — the site of the 2024 College Wrestling National Championships — Duke sophomore captain Gaetano Console stepped onto the mat for what would be the most momentous match of his young collegiate career.

Elko Urbanism: The end of an era?

(02/09/24 6:29am)

And in a blink of an eye, it was all over. After a season full of so much hope, everything fell apart with remarkable speed. Less than 24 hours after a triumphant victory over Pitt, Blue Devils football coach Mike Elko stepped on a private jet headed for College Station, Texas, to sign a contract as the new Texas A&M head coach. Soon after, a cascade of Blue Devils hit the transfer portal, making it clear that the Elko Era was officially over. Those happy memories of storming the field after knocking off Clemson, getting hyped for College Gameday and savoring back-to-back bowl victories are now all things of the past.
