‘I Had a Right to Be at Central’: Remembering Little Rock’s Integration Battle
It was late September 1957, and students at Little Rock Central High School in Arkansas had been in class for three weeks. Everyone, that is, but 14-year-old Carlotta Walls and eight other teenagers who were to be Central High’s first black students.

But on Sept. 25, under escort by federal troops, Carlotta and her classmates walked up the front steps of Central High and into history. They became the highest-profile black students in the United States to integrate a formerly all-white sch...

Federal Workers Who Made a Difference
The federal government gets a bad rap: it is constantly described as bloated and clunky, its workers as inefficient and ineffectual. Yet by and large, the men and women who make up the federal workforce rise above the criticism, put one foot in front of the other and do their job. Rarely is the work they do acknowledged, much less praised. But for the past 16 years, the Samuel J. Heyman Service to America Medals, or Sammies, have sought to change that by honoring federal employees who have an outsize impact on the country and the world. Below, the 2017 Sammie winners, chosen by the nonpartisan Partnership for Public Servic...

The most unlikely crusader against Senate Republicans’ latest push to repeal Obamacare has been late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel, who kept up the charge for a third night on Thursday. Kimmel’s latest pushback came after President Donald Trump claimed Wednesday night on Twitter that he would not sign the new Senate bill, known as Graham-Cassidy, “if it did not include coverage of pre-existing conditions. It does!” Kimmel objected to this — just as many health care experts have. “For Donald Trump, this isn’t about the Graham-Cassidy bill,” Kimmel said. “It’s a...
