5 yrs ago to the day, I began my service as President Obama’s Cabinet Secretary and Chair of MBK. The honor and privilege of a lifetime. Now on my way to Oakland for #MBKRising. Proud to be part of a movement @MBK_Alliance to change lives and change narratives for BYMOC!

On a landmark day for the NBA in Africa, a powerful video on how sports make a difference. @NBA_Africa

I’ve always loved basketball because it’s about building a team that’s equal to more than the sum of its parts. Glad to see this expansion into Africa because for a rising continent, this can be about a lot more than what happens on the court.

Note to TV producers. I would watch an entire 2 hour special based on this concept of @aliciakeys singing in a Smokey nightclub playing dual black and white pianos. Heck, I’d pay a premium for it. Alicia, Girl you are all that.

Maret School’s production of Newsies was astounding. Every young person deserves the opportunity to live their dreams, just like our son and his classmates. That’s one of the reasons we’ll be gathering in Oakland #MBKRising

My friend Chris Wilson just published the account of his journey from life in prison to a life of purpose. Today, at Chris’s request, I bought 200 copies to send to young people in Maryland’s juvenile justice system. If just one book changes one life...

The New York Public Service Commission today approved the merger of T-Mobile and Sprint, with conditions related to jobs, service quality.

Quoted @MLB

We are saddened by the loss of Frank Robinson, a Hall of Famer, 2-time MVP and MLB’s first African-American manager. He was 83.

Because of Frank Robinson, I became a “junior Oriole” in 1966. Because of Frank Robinson, I became a diehard baseball fan. Because of Frank Robinson, I became more proud to be a black male. God bless you Frank Robinson. Rest In Peace and Power!

AG @EricHolder has been #MyBrothersKeeper from day 1, and 5 years later still is! Great to catch up with him and @MBK_Alliance Chair @gobluebrod to talk MBK today!

It was through the work of Concerned Black Men 30 years ago that I met my brother and my friend @EricHolder. He has always been a committed #MyBrothersKeeper.

We think of you always Trayvon, especially today, your 24th birthday. Your life & untimely death inspired @Barackobama to begin My Brother’s Keeper while he was POTUS and to continue the work @MBK_Alliance. We are so inspired by your family’s dedication & work as well.

Great to see former FCC Commissioner @MignonClyburn, long a champion for equitable broadband access in underserved communities, advising on the T-Mobile-Sprint merger just as the companies commit to keep prices down. Together we can reach #5GforAll.

Quoted @ObamaFoundation

We asked people what they were doing to support boys and young men of color for a chance to join us at MBKRising! Their stories inspired us. Check them out—and stay tuned for a special announcement about the event tomorrow: http://obama.org/mbka

I am My Brother’s Keeper. I am My Brother’s Keeper. I am My Brother’s Keeper. Been 5 years since @BarackObama launched MBK from the White House. MBK keeps rising, keeps changing the world, keeps changing the narrative about Boys and Young Men of Color!

Lost a cherished relative this week and have been cooking may way through genuine sorrow this week. Food heals. Food Stirs the soul and warms the heart. Food has a language of its own in rendered pots and secret seasonings and delicious memories. If you know....you know

Best Jambalaya I have ever eaten. My wife flavored it with so much “love of family” seasoning. Her late Uncle Joe would have loved it....in fact he inspired it!

I have come to know Ralph Northam as a good, very decent man. I regretfully conclude that he does not now have the ability to effectively govern and effectively stand for the issues - moral and political - that Virginia and the nation must confront. The Governor should resign.

A resignation here would be correct but is not an appropriate end to this matter. We still need to have a difficult and necessary conversation about how racism and racist symbols still pervade too much of our society - and the pain they cause. What have we learned as a nation?

We commend @RepAnnaEshoo, @USRepLong, & members of both parties for speaking out in favor of proposed Sprint/T-Mobile merger. Increased connectivity will strengthen our economy, drive innovation, & help close the #digitaldivide.

Was honored to speak @LoyolaChicago yesterday as part of that great Jesuit institution’s MLK celebration.  What a special surprise to meet Sister Jean too!  We talked about the 2018 Final Four game between my Wolverines @umichbball and her Ramblers! Maybe a rematch this March?
