Today in History
In 1857, the Supreme Court ruled that Dred Scott, a slave who had lived in a free state, could not sue for his freedom in court, reasoning that as an African-American man, Scott could not claim citizenship. Dred Scott v. Sandford would go down as a critical moment in the lead-up to the Civil War.

Read how President James Buchanan interfered with the court to influence the outcome of the decision.

PHOTO OF THE DAY
This is a portrait of my friend Alina (we call her Donut) smoking in between the coloring and cutting of her hair by another friend of ours, who is a hairdresser. The light was so beautiful on her face. I loved the way the towel framed it. The colors and light gave this portrait an almost Renaissance painting sort of quality.
