16 January 2017

That stylish lady up there on the cover is Brenda Jackson. She is one of the interviewees in a story looking into how African Americans feel about President Obama's legacy. She traveled hundreds of miles with her family to attend Obama's first inauguration. I'm, uh, guessing she's not going to make the trip for the impending inauguration.

Oh, hey, those hands holding the book belong to Kevin Starr, California's unofficial official historian, who passed away this weekend. He wrote multiple volumes on California history, covering almost every period except the 1960s and 70s. He skipped those. Why did you skip those, Kevin? Were you leaving a little something for the next California historian?
