Here are just a few of my favorite commentaries from NPR.
A piece about Sakia Gunn, a 15-year-old lesbian who was killed in a hate crime in Newark, NJ.
A commentary about Shayla Price, a high school student who typed in the words “minority scholarships” in a Google search and after a year of hard work and dozens of applications was awarded $100,000 to pay for her education.
A commentary on new voter ID laws: Do you know what they are in your state?
