ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY:

June 22, 1943 

W.E.B. Du Bois became the first African American member of the National Institute of Arts and Letters.  

Du Bois was a historian, civil rights activist, sociologist, author, editor and Pan-Africanist who in 1909 was also one of the founders of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP).  DuBois is noted nationally as being a leader of an organization of African Americans who wanted equal rights for African Americans, which was called the Niagara Movement.  He was born on February 23, 1868 in Great Barrington, Massachusetts and died on August 27, 1963 at age 95 in Accra, Ghana.

IT'S A CELEBRATION:

 

On June 22nd, National Onion Rings Day recognizes a batter-dipped, deep-fried bite of deliciousness that runs rings around other appetizers. 

Head out to your favorite diner and order up some onion rings. You can also make them at home. We even have a recipe for you to try. Of course, you may have a family favorite, and if you do, be sure to show it off!

BRAIN TEASER:

Turn me on my side and I am everything. Cut me in half and I am nothing. What am I?
