Born in Southern California in July 1941, Hicks got involved in the civil rights movement as a young man during the 1965 Watts riots, initially as a militant leftist in the Black Power movement.

Community Advocates, Inc.: In Memoriam - Joe R. Hicks: 1941 - 2016

Born in Southern California in July, 1941, Joe began his journey in the civil rights movement as a young man during the 1965 Watts Riots in Los Angeles, initially as a militant leftist in the Black Power movement. He famously debated former Klansman David Duke on the issue of affirmative action at California State University, Northridge in 1996. By the mid-1990s, however, Joe began a lengthy re-examination of his political views that resulted in dramatically-altered political positions. Joe's contemporary political views often stood at odds with the beliefs with which he was long associated, and for the past several years, he identified himself as an independent political conservative. -- Review Seeker

16 Burning Questions for the 2016 girls volleyball season

Expect big things from Granada Hills. With the City Section forming an Open Division for its top eight programs, it means all the power will be centrally located. In addition to Granada Hills, expect El Camino Real, Chatsworth and even Taft to make the Open Division, opening the door for the likes of Van Nuys, Sylmar, Verdugo Hills and Arleta in the lower divisions. Granada Hills and Palisades appear to be on a collision course for the Open Division final. Granada Hills has one of the area’s most dynamic players in Sarah Hagge. Nicole Doebler Clarissa Bradford and Ashley Velasquez and Courtney Hull will also be top players for Granada Hills. Defending champion El Camino Real has a strong core in CSUN recruit Lauryn Anderson, powerful outside hitter Kashauna Williams and libero Tallie Monsalve and added Coach Alyssa Lee, who guided the ECR boys to a City title last spring. Chatsworth will also be in the mix with blistering hitter Mahalia White and Kelly Landsman, but will be hard-pressed to make up for the transfer of Tinei Suitonu to Cathedral Catholic. Taft is well-coached and will always be a threat and will look to Mia Ognjanovic to shoulder much of the burden. Eagle Rock’s Jahmea Bent -- an All-City performer -- is also a player to watch. -- Los Angeles Daily News

Entering College? Latino Professors Share Some Great Advice for 2016

I have been teaching freshmen for close to 17 years, and the majority of my students are Chicano/Latino, with many of them first generation college students. I spend the first weeks of my classes challenging my students to set the bar high for themselves, which means they have a rigorous weekly reading and writing load. I want my students to learn from the beginning that College is WORK and that they are building a new skill set as college students. Professors do not want to hear you complain and whine about the workload, something that high school students often do and get away with in the classroom. Denise M. Sandoval is a Professor in the Department of Chicana and Chicano Studies at California State University, Northridge. -- NBC News
