Creative Chaos: Review of "Graffiti" at the Brooklyn Musuem

Black Man With a Library | Yesterday I went to the Brooklyn Museum to check out the "Graffiti "show. As a child of the 1980s, I remember vividly the aerosol chaos that covered the CC train that my brother and I took on our way to school in the Bronx. Those were crazy times, where the ground of the city was shifting under our feet. Crack cocaine devastated our community and kids were worried about getting AIDS from water fountains.

One Never Knows What to Say to the Servants

truthout | One Never Knows What To Say to the Servants Scenes from the class struggle in Delhi--and Brooklyn. BY TUNKU VARADARAJAN Friday, January 16, 2004 12:01 a.m. EST It's not possible to spend an hour in urban India without ingesting life's unfairness. When families subsist in cardboard shelters a few yards from Italianate villas, a visitor must drop the dearly held American pretense that Being Created Equal amounts to equal opportunity and treatment for all.
