US Airways - February 2014 - (Page 9)

embark From the Editor A Month to Remember ★ COVER PHOTO BY RAYMOND PATRICK This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Like the 19th Amendment of 1920, which gave women the right to vote, the Civil Rights Act changed the social and political landscape and the face of a nation. In honor of this anniversary, and especially poignant for Black History Month, this issue features several stories that touch on compelling moments in the African American struggle for civil rights. On page 42, you can discover how black men and women overcame deep-seated prejudice simply to be part of the aviation industry. Beginning on page 64, you can read the stories of unsung heroes of the movement, a Q&A with Maya Angelou, and infor- The Story Behind the Stories By Lance Elko mation about the growing legacy of the HBCU (Historically Black Colleges and Universities). Finally, our Must Read book excerpt (page 131) is from I'll Take You There, the story of Mavis Staples and the Staple Singers, a musical tour de force in the tumultuous '60s. Their story is troubled, riveting, and, finally, triumphant. Other highlights abound in this issue. We have a yin and yang blend of travel stories. For those seeking sun and water, we offer a surprise discovery - Eleuthera - in the Bahamas. And for ski lovers, a close-up look at the wonderful powder of Salt Lake City.
