Lawrence D. Bobo, the W.E.B. Du Bois Professor of the Social Sciences at Harvard University, gives trenchant insights on society and politics to us Straight Up on Wednesdays in his column.

Jack White, a longtime contributing editor for The Root and former Time magazine columnist, has returned with a sharp, incisive, twice-monthly column about politics.

Check back regularly for their contributions, as well as for the weekly 100 Amazing Facts About the Negro and Tracing Your Roots columns of our editor-in-chief, Henry Louis Gates Jr.; the Image of the Week, presented by the Image of the Black in Western Art Archive; the weekly Ask Demetria relationship-advice column by Demetria L.
