George Curry, noted journalist and publisher joins the ancestors

George Curry, the legendary columnist, commentator and champion of black journalists, died of sudden heart failure on Saturday. He was 69. Curry grew up in Tuscaloosa, Ala., where he was childhood friends with Bernard Lafayette, the current chairman of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference. “This is a tragic loss to the movement because George Curry was a journalist who paid special attention to civil rights because he lived it and loved it,” Lafayette told Trice Edney News Wire. Curry began his career as reporter for Sports Illustrated and The St. Louis Dispatch. In the 1990s, he was the editor of Emerge, an edgy political and cultural publication with the tag line “Black America’s Newsmagazine.” In 1993, the cover depicted Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas wearing an Aunt Jemima-style handkerchief next to the word “BETRAYED.” Curry was the first African-American to be elected president of the American Society of Magazine Editors. After Emerge folded in 2000, Curry led the news service for the National Newspaper Publishers Association for nine years. He wrote a syndicated column that was published in black newspapers all over the country, and he frequently appeared as a commentator on television and radio news programs. NPR’s Karen Grigsby Bates interviewed Curry on numerous occasions. In 2012, she spoke to him about how the media approached the murder of Trayvon Martin, an unarmed black teenager who was shot to death by a white man in Florida. Bates reported: “Syndicated columnist George Curry says the black media have a long history of highlighting anti-black violence, which mainstream media often picks up on later. ” ‘The black press plays a... read more

The Oscars does it again

A year after host Neil Patrick Harris quipped that the Oscars were honoring Hollywood’s “best and Whitest,” the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences unveiled a slate of nominees Jan. 14 that once again included no Black actors or directors, prompting a dismayed revival of the “OscarsSoWhite” hashtag. Many also expressed regret that the highly admired N.W.A biopic “Straight Outta Compton” failed to score a best picture nod, despite being recognized in other contests. In acting categories, omissions included Idris Elba in “Beasts of No Nation” and Will Smith in “Concussion.” Director Ryan Coogler of the successful “Rocky” spinoff “Creed” also failed to make the cut. Those voicing disappointment included the academy’s president herself, Cheryl Boone Isaacs. “I really was disappointed,” Ms. Isaacs told the Associated Press when asked about “Compton,’’ which received only a screenplay nomination Theater shooter thanks man accused of Black church slayings (for, some noted on Twitter, its White screenwriters, not its Black cast or director.) “Fabulous movie, fabulous movie.’’ But Ms. Isaacs, who is Black, added that the Oscar nominations are part of a much broader conversation in the entertainment industry about diversity—and that change would happen, albeit slowly. “What is important is that this entire conversation of diversity is here and we are talking about it,” Ms. Isaacs said. “And I think we will not just talk, because people will say, ‘well don’t just talk, you gotta do,’ (but) talking gets to the doing, and we are going to do … It is an industry-wide situation and we need to continue this conversation. We need to bring in new talent, to nourish... read more
