Throughout the presidency of Donald Trump, many media outlets across the United States were reluctant to label him a liar or a racist, even when his actions merited those terms, or to cover White supremacy as more than a fringe movement.

On Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, Li Miao Lovett remembers how the Civil Rights Movement left a legacy of a more diverse America.

Richard Swerdlow says millions of school children now have something in common with members of Congress that neither the students nor the lawmakers welcome.
