"All We Are Seeking Here Is Equal Opportunity": The American G.I. Forum Desegregates a Texas Communi
With the annexation of Texas in 1848 at the end of the Mexican-American War, Tejanos--Texans of Mexican descent--lost property rights and political power in a society dominated by Anglos. Through discriminatory practices and violent force, Tejanos were kept at the bottom of the new political and socio-cultural order.

Carl Schramm, President of the Kauffman Foundation, examines the vital role of entrepreneurship in the changing economy. He emphasizes how entrepreneurs have a positive influence on the American economy by creating ways to reinvent and innovate the rules of life. For example, half of the jobs created in 2007 are from firms less than five years old. Entrepreneurs teach us about human needs we did not know existed, create jobs that provide security for people, and generate social welfare, he says.
In the third Panel of day 2 of a Common Word, panelists talk about the role of faith in informing the work and missions of international NGO's. How are traditional theological foundations for love of neighbor interpreted and applied in response to neighbors in today?s global community? In what ways has this understanding informed Muslim-Christian relations in the work of major international NGOs?
Richard Cizik puts the ?protest? back in Protestant. It is impossible not to watch this new video interview without pausing to marvel at how many mainstream Evangelical theological and political positions he challenges. That he does so with charm and wit just makes it all the more entertaining.??

Description: In his theses on the concept of history, Walter Benjamin wrote that "the 'state of emergency' in which we live is not the exception but the rule." This influential philosopher, who failed to gain admittance into the academy yet remains one of its most influential thinkers, wrote prolifically on diverse topics: from mechanical reproduction to childhood pastimes, from hashish to mourning, and, perhaps most importantly, on the question of political agency and action. In this lecture, D
