Russia protests: Opposition leader Navalny arrested

Russia's main opposition leader, Alexei Navalny, has been arrested at an anti-corruption protest he organised in the capital, Moscow.
Thousands of people have joined rallies nationwide, calling for the resignation of Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev over corruption allegations.

Ghanaian writer Yaa Gyasi bags $1 million for debut novel

Ghanaian-American novelist Yaa Gyasi is poised to make a huge splash in the literary world with her debut historical fiction novel Homegoing which has already earned her a $1-million advance from the Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group.
The novel was inspired by a trip to Ghana in 2009, her first since leaving the country as an infant. 
According to the Daily Mail, it was on a tour of the former slave-trading fort Cape Coast Castle – "going from the grandeur of upstairs where the slave traders worked to the dungeons below’ – that she realised what she wanted to write about: ‘The idea of placing two people together; the wife of someone above and one of the slaves below.
"I hope it shows that much of what we’re dealing with [the legacy of slavery] didn’t appear out of nowhere,’ she says. ‘When you see things that are happening today, remember to put them in the context of history".
Born in Mampong, Ghana, she is the daughter of Kwaku Gyasi, a professor of French at th…

Taraji P. Henson, Kris Jenner and More Celebrities React to Missing Black Girls in D.C.

This week, Washington, D.C., made headlines as the city’s Metropolitan Police Department recently began tweeting out missing-person reports — with an alarming number of them for  young black women and Latinas.
Though officials have insisted that the numbers reflect only the fact that the department recently started using social media to help close cases, many have voiced concern that the numbers reflect a much larger problem in how commonly people of color go missing, both in the nation’s capital and around the country, as well as over serious gaps in media coverage of these cases as opposed to those about white people.
As a result, many individuals have taken to social media to express their disdain about what they consider a continued oversight of related awareness — including celebrities like Taraji P. Henson, Kris Jenner and Viola Davis.

It is deeply disturbing that the disappearance of dozens of young girls is "business as usual" in our nation's capital, my ch…
