Match Day at NYU School of Medicine

Match Day at NYU School of Medicine

Match Day marks a dramatic change in the lives of graduating medical students. At exactly noon on March 17, each student of the NYU School of Medicine class of 2017 was handed an envelope containing a letter stating which hospital has accepted him or her for residency. It’s an extremely emotional experience for the students and their friends and family.

For the Love of Money: Blacks on US Currency at the Museum of American Finance

“For the Love of Money: Blacks on US Currency” opens at the Museum of American Finance

In honor of Black History Month, the Museum of American Finance has opened “For the Love of Money: Blacks on US Currency,” a traveling exhibit on loan from the Museum of UnCut Funk.

To be featured on currency is among the nation’s highest honors. The Treasury’s latest redesign—which will feature Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill beginning in 2020—will acknowledge for the first time on paper money the contributions of black and women’s rights activists in advancing American democracy. There is a longe tradition of honoring such leaders through the creation of commemorative coins, medals, and medallions. Through legislation, Congress has chosen to honor on US commemorative currency black icons, seminal historic events, and institutions which have significantly influenced American and black history.

“For the Love of Money” honors barrier breaking black athletes, entertainers, civil rights leaders, military leaders, and politicians, and it features the historic contributions of several prominent black women. The exhibit showcases more than 40 anti-slavery tokens, commemorative coins, concept coins, commemorative bronze medals, Presidential bronze medals, and commemorative medallions representing American and black history milestones that have contributed to the betterment of the United States. Additional coins and medals will be added to the exhibit as they are released in 2017.

Women's March in New York City

Women’s March in New York City

The day after the presidential inauguration, I attended the Women’s March. I was surprised at how peaceful and friendly it was, and it gave me hope that there are so many like-minded people in New York, and that I could help make a difference simply by being there to be counted. One of the best parts for me is that everyone expected and wanted to be photographed with their protest signs. I was amazed by the creativity of all of them.
