The CIAA Tournament generated a total economic impact of $19.6 million, which supported 1,159 part-time and full-time jobs and generated $1.9 million in state and local taxes. This financial success was made possible by the State of Maryland, Baltimore City and the Local Organizing Committee.

The iconic dance-hall painting seen in the credits of the 1970s sitcom Good Times sold at a Christie’s auction in New York City Thursday for a record-breaking $15.2 million.

As noted by The Los Angeles Times, Ernie Barnes’ adored 1976 acrylic-on-canvas piece known as The Sugar Shack appeared in the fifth and sixth seasons of the classic 1970s sitcom. Marvin Gaye also used the painting as the cover art for his classic hit album, “I Want You.

Northern Virginia Regional Commission pushes for HBCU satellite campus

A group representing Northern Virginia municipalities wants to bring a historically Black university to the region through a satellite campus.

Representatives from the Northern Virginia Regional Commission – which includes 13 local governments such as Alexandria, Fairfax and Prince William – have met with administrators at Norfolk State University and Virginia State University who demonstrated interest in building a location in Northern Virginia, chair of the commission Cydny Neville said.

Currently, Virginia Union University is the northernmost historically Black university in the commonwealth. While the University of Virginia and Virginia Tech have satellite campuses in northern Virginia, Neville–a VSU alumna–says there is a need for a Black institution for the more than 405,000 students in the area who did not finish college or have an associate’s degree..

“It’s not even just the institution itself,” Neville said. “It’s its presence and how that uplifts the community around it, and Northern Virginia will be better off with it. Northern Virginia is great, but having an HBCU presence is something that we need.”
