Democrats Flip U.S. Senate With Ossoff, Warnock Wins

Democrats have flipped the Senate majority now that Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff are projected to win their runoffs with most of Georgia's votes counted.

With a small number of ballots left to be counted, including about 19,000 in heavily Democratic DeKalb County, the Associated Press has now projected Warnock to win his race as he leads Kelly Loeffler by about 62,000 votes, while Ossoff's 25,000-vote lead over David Perdue is now outside the margin of a recount.

With most of Georgia's votes counted in the Jan. 5 runoffs that will decide control of the U.S. Senate, Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff are leading the Republican incumbents above the .5% margin for a recount, according to unofficial election results.

Democrat Raphael Warnock defeated GOP Sen. Kelly Loeffler, according to the Associated Press. If Democrat Jon Ossoff def...

AP Projects Warnock Win, Democrats See Path To Likely Senate Majority

Democrat Raphael Warnock defeated GOP Sen. Kelly Loeffler, according to the Associated Press. If Democrat Jon Ossoff defeats Republican David Perdue, control of the Senate will flip.

With most of Georgia's votes counted in the Jan. 5 runoffs that will decide control of the U.S. Senate, the remaining outstanding ballots likely favor Democrats Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff enough for narrow victories, according to unofficial election results, early voting data and historic electi...

The 'Black Belt' of Georgia That May Decide The Next U.S. Senate

“We didn't just show up; we showed out — and Georgia shocked the world.”

So said Georgia state Rep. Winfred Dukes of the November election during a December campaign speech in Albany for U.S. Senate candidate Jon Ossoff.

Although Atlanta may be the state’s population center, historically it’s the voters of rural Georgia who decide the winner of statewide elections. Dukes, a Democrat who represents the state’s District 154, is keenly aware of this, and is highlighting ways to bring more political attention to southwest Georgia and its proverbial “Black Belt.”

On election night, it was the votes of Albany and the surrounding Black Belt, in which President-elect Joe Biden took nearly 70 percent of the vote, that contributed to Biden’s narrow win over President Donald Trump in Georgia’s final vote tally. And it may do so again in the state's U.S. Senate...

With Less Money In Its Red Kettles, The Salvation Army Rallies To Save The Holidays

The The Salvation Army USA's red-kettle campaign is expecting fewer donations and volunteers this year as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

The charitable organization relies on its red-kettle campaign's donations to raise enough money to help millions of Americans around the holidays. That's especially true this year, with so many people out of work and suffering financially.

Find out how the charity is turning to technology and its enthusiastic volunteers to keep the tradition going.

With traffic down at stores and malls across the nation during the pandemic, the charity's iconic red-kettle campaign might bring in half the donations compared with last year.

Digitized Funeral Programs Document Black History

Funeral programs are more than brochures passed around during a funeral service. They are a snapshot of the deceased’s life, and for several Black families, also serve as a genealogical piece of ancestry and heritage.

'Ma Rainey's Black Bottom' Shines A Light On August Wilson's Vision

'Ma Rainey's Black Bottom' was August Wilson's first Broadway hit — and a preamble to his cycle of award-winning plays about the African-American experience across the 20th Century that included 'Fences' and 'The Piano Lesson.'

Now 'Ma Rainey's Black Bottom' is the first of the late playwright's works to be adapted for Netflix — premiering Dec. 18.

Wilson was a little-known poet when the play opened at Yale Repertory Theater in the spring of 1984. Sitting in the theater, Wilson told me the story came to him one day when he was listening to a recording of Ma Rainey singing the title song.

The late August Wilson's first Broadway hit, Ma Rainey's Black Bottom, has been adapted for the screen, starring Viola Davis and Chadwick Boseman in his final film role.
