303- The Hair Chart - 99% Invisible
Andre Walker became famous for being Oprah Winfrey’s hair stylist, but he is also known for something else: a system that he created back in the 1990s to market his line of hair care products. The system categorizes natural hair types, and it's often referred to simply as "the hair chart." The chart identifies four hair types and within each of those categories there are different sub-types. The chart spans straight, wavy, curly, and kinky hair. For Walker, the chart was all about selling his p…

National Memorial for Peace and Justice: A powerful new project forces America to confront its history of lynching - The Washington Post
Each suspended steel monument represents one of the hundreds of American counties in which lynchings took place, and is inscribed with as many of the known names of the victims from that locality. A duplicate steel monument for each county is laid out horizontally, as if in a vast, open-air morgue, outside the memorial structure. Stevenson’s concept for the memorial includes the hope that individual counties will claim these duplicate steel boxes, and display them in some way in public places across the country. Counties that refuse to collect their “monument” will be shamed by the presence of the unclaimed coffin form on the grounds of the national memorial.

A Report to the U.N. Reveals Deep Racial Disparities in America's Criminal Justice System - Pacific Standard
Significant racial disparities persist in all aspects of the American criminal justice system, according to a new report issued to the United Nations by the Sentencing Project. The report finds discrimination against people of color in the policing, pretrial, sentencing, parole, and post-prison stages of the country's justice system.

The Sentencing Project, a criminal justice reform non-profit, sent the report to E. Tendayi Achiume, the U.N.'s racism watchdog.

There are 2.2 million incarcerated individuals in the U.S.—more than any other country. In 2016, African Americans comprised 27 percent of all individuals arrested in the U.S., double their share of the population.

The report attributes these statistics to "disproportionate levels of police contact with African Americans," especially regarding drugs. More than a quarter of those arrested for drug violations in 2015 were African American, though drug use rates "do not differ substantially by race and ethnicity," the report states.
