Bey, whose portraits of Harlem form the centerpiece of the exhibit “Harlem: Found Ways” now at the Ethelbert Cooper Gallery of African and African American Art, first connected with his chosen visual medium through a protest.The year was 1969, and Bey, then a 16-year-old living in Queens, had heard of the controversy around the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s “Harlem on My Mind” exhibition. The show, which contained no paintings or sculptures by African-American artists, was drawing protests and picket lines, and the socially conscious teen decided to check it out.“As it turned out,” Bey explained in a gallery talk, “on the day I got there, there was no demonstration. There was no picket line, so I got to go see the exhibition.”What he found was as powerful as any protest. Describing a “pivotal and transformative moment,” the artist recalled being in a Manhattan cultural institution, “seeing photographs of ordinary African-Americans in a museum, and seeing people looking at the photographs.”If that show turned Bey, who is also a musician, into a photographer, it also taught him what he didn’t want to do. Unlike the poorly conceived and patronizing Met show, Bey said last Wednesday, “I knew that I wanted to exhibit those photographs in the community, so people who were the subjects of the work would have access to the work and be part of the audience for those works.”The resulting show, “Harlem, U.S.A.,” compiled photographs made from 1975 to 1979 and was indeed first exhibited at the Studio Museum in Harlem. Related Many of these photographs are included in the Cooper show, which also includes works by Abigail DeVille, Glenn Ligon, Howard Tangye, Nari Ward, Kehinde Wiley, and selections from the Studio Museum’s Harlem Postcard project.Largely portraits, Bey’s photos from that first exhibition depict an established community. In some, like “A Man in a Bowler Hat,” the subjects face the camera directly. Self-possessed and self-aware, they present a dignified and timeless humanity. Others, like “A Woman and Two Boys Passing,” appear to be candids. Almost abstract, light and shadow are as elemental to the composition as the title characters in this photo, which captures one moment in time.That moment may soon be gone. Bey has since moved out of New York but retains ties to the area. During visits, he explained during his talk, he became “acutely aware” of how Harlem was changing, as gentrification remade the historically African-American area into something wealthier, whiter, and more generic.“I wanted — or needed — to make a work about that,” he explained. In 2014, he began walking the streets again, seeking his subjects and focus for a new series of photographs. The result, “Harlem Redux,” is a startlingly different body of work. In place of the small, intimate black-and-white portraits of “Harlem, U.S.A.,” the new photos, which have pride of place in the front of the Cooper Gallery, are monumentally large color prints. More striking still, they focus not on the people as much as the landscape of change. Construction sites and materials fill these prints with the yellow and orange of safety barriers, the green of a dumpster, or the mottled browns of water-damaged paper. The result is almost abstract — beautiful, but lacking the human touch of a living, breathing community.When people are pictured, they are anonymous, as if overwhelmed by the change around them, or seen only from the back, as in “Young Man, West 127th Street.”The young man is, explained Bey, the one unchanging point in this landscape. “He’s still sitting there like people always have,” said the artist, “even as the place transforms around him.”“Harlem: Found Ways” will be on view at the Ethelbert Cooper Gallery of African and African American Art, Hutchins Center, 102 Mount Auburn St., Cambridge, until July 15, open Tuesdays through Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Closed on the Fourth of July.

Sign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York First responders treat victims of the Boston Marathon bombing Monday, April 15, 2013 (Aaron Tang)The Boston Marathon bombing casualty count rose to nearly 200 a day after the smoke cleared and the investigation got into full swing Tuesday, although more questions than answers remain so far.Authorities said 176 survivors are being treated for various injuries—many partial leg amputations—with 17 in critical condition and three dead, including an 8-year-old boy. But, aside from asking for the public’s patience, continuing to refute false rumors and asking for more tips, investigators shared few new details of the probe.“This will be a worldwide investigation,” Rick DesLauriers, FBI Special Agent in Charge of the Boston field office, told reporters. “We will go to where the evidence or the leads take us. We will go to the ends of the Earth to identify the subject or subjects responsible for this despicable crime and we will do everything we can to bring them to justice.”President Barack Obama officially termed the twin bombings an act of terrorism, calling it heinous, cowardly and evil. The Associated Press reported that the bombs were made of pressure cookers filled with ball bearings.Long Island on High Alert after Boston Marathon BombingThe crime scene was reduced to a 12-block area surrounding Copley Square from a 15-block area and will shrink as evidence is processed. But street closures around the Bolyston Street finish line where the explosions occurred 50 yards apart 3 p.m. Monday are expected to continue for several days.“We are in the process of securing and processing the most complex crime scene that we’ve dealt with in the history of the department,” Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis said. “We are working very closely with all of our partners.”Investigators said there were no undetonated explosive devices found as they tried to address rumors that up to seven bombs were found aside from the two that went off. They also reiterated that they have no suspect in custody, despite widespread reports saying otherwise.Davis added that investigators are sifting through the scores of video and still camera images from the scene while prioritizing those taken shortly before and after the blasts.“This is probably one of the most well-photographed areas in the country yesterday,” Davis said, noting the logistical issues of sorting photos from a larger-than-usual amount of cameras aimed at the crime scene during the nation’s longest-running marathon.DesLauriers said there were no known specific threats against the marathon before the explosions and he knew of no threats after the fact, either. Beyond that, all anyone could do was offer speculation.“Any time bombs are used to target innocent civilians it is an act of terror,” Obama said in a brief national address Tuesday. “What we don’t yet know, however, is who carried out this attack, or why; whether it was planned and executed by a terrorist organization, foreign or domestic, or was the act of a malevolent individual.”Anyone with information about the case is asked to call 1-800-CALL-FBI.
They say he eventually “struck” a deputy in the face before a taser was used on him. TOWN OF MAINE (WBNG) — Authorities say a man was charged with a felony after assaulting a sheriff’s deputy Sunday. He was also charged with with obstructing governmental administration in the 2nd degree, a misdemeanor. Vymislicky was taken to the Broome County Sheriff’s Correctional Facility. The deputy was treated for minor injuries. The sheriff’s office says deputies responded to Shadowbrook Drive in the town of Maine for a report of a physical-domestic incident. The Broome County Sheriff’s Office says 21-year-old Tyler J. Vymislicky was charged with assault in the 2nd degree, assaulting a police officer, a class D felony. Authorities say Vymislicky did not comply with law enforcement and tried to leave the scene.
Hired when Nashville were playing the United Soccer League, Smith impressed enough to be entrusted with the role of head coach for this inaugural MLS season. He has rewarded that faith with a seventh-place finish – three above Miami – and a place in the playoffs.“I think it has exceeded everyone’s expectations,” he says. “It is a brand new group and I have tried to bring those guys together and create a bit of an identity, a style. It is not easy.- Advertisement – Image:Smith is an MLS winner during his time at Colorado Rapids in 2010 I think it makes for great press. David and Goliath, if you like.Gary Smith on the game against Inter Miami There has since been the tornado in Tennessee that forced two of the team to move house and the challenge of making up for missed games in what has been a packed schedule.Smith has found a way. At 51, his only management role in English football ended seven years ago at Stevenage, but his pedigree Stateside is not in question. The Miami game will take place 10 years to the day since he led Colorado Rapids to glory in the MLS Cup.He had reservations about the move to Nashville at first. Smith’s first impression of Music City was that this was “Blackpool on steroids” but he has since found comfort in a quieter part of town, making a new life there with his wife and three teenage children.- Advertisement – “You are not only trying to fast-track relationships, building a rapport and understanding, but you have got to present a practical idea. What is the philosophy? How are we are going to compete? The template is laid out but it is then up to the players to bring it to life.“It has just been an incredibly difficult year for everyone involved but to show the character and spirit that we have is a testament to the individuals that we have in the group.” Image:Smith believes his Nashville players have exceeded expectations this year Image:Smith has succeeded in forming a strong bond among his players in quick time Could there be a repeat of that success with Colorado Rapids? It would be a sensational story, once more, but Smith does not sound like a man who is ruling it out.“Quite frankly, there is no comparison with how this club is run. The understanding with the technical director, the general manager, the ownership group, it is just poles apart.“Again, this is an unfancied group. Again, we are battling the odds.“It is different here but the fact that we are unfancied and were unfancied from the outset plays into this. Does anyone really want to play us? I would not think so. The team that plays against us is expected to win and I believe that makes it difficult for our opponent.”Beckham, watch out? “Fortunately for us,” laughs Smith, “he isn’t playing.” Image:This is Nashville’s first season in MLS having joined as an expansion team Watch highlights of Nashville’s impressive 3-0 win over Dallas last month It is a bittersweet memory now. The people of Nashville had rallied behind the team but the Covid-19 crisis means that the crowds have not been able to return in numbers since then.And yet, Smith’s side have battled on. They have been beaten only once at home since that opening game – and even that was as a result of a controversial offside call. Nashville have the third best defensive record in the league. That could be crucial in the playoffs.“A lot of press and pundits look at the fact that we don’t concede goals and I think that has sometimes been misconstrued,” says Smith, a reference to his reputation for defence.“The big thing that I have always wanted from a group is to be organised. That defensive organisation has helped us to stay in games when we have not had the firepower to make it work. Credit to the group for staying focused and organised and carrying out our plan.“There is more than one way to skin a cat.”The game against Miami highlights that clearly. The razzmatazz that has greeted the Florida outfit’s introduction to MLS contrasts with the more measured approach of Nashville. “People will look at the similarities – or maybe the lack of similarities,” says Smith. Indeed, Smith still has the ball from the MLS Cup final. His eldest daughter jumped the hoardings upon the final whistle and at the age of seven had the wherewithal to grab it.“Next thing you know, she is standing there with the match-ball. It is amazing what takes their focus. She went scuttling after it. I got the guys to sign it. It is pride of place.”But within a year of that success, Smith was gone. Without a green card in America, he returned to England hoping that his achievements overseas had been noted.He ended up at Stevenage.“I would have loved an opportunity in the Championship but that was not the case,” he explains. “Maybe the league was not viewed as it should have been but I thought Stevenage was a good opportunity. You don’t go anywhere thinking that it is going to be ****.”Smith took Stevenage to the League One playoffs in his first season, losing to Sheffield United in the semi-final. It remains the club’s highest league finish in its history but he was sacked the following March, just days after a 4-0 win over the Blades, and with the team safely in midtable, after what was described by the board as a ‘worrying’ run of form.“What happened there was probably my biggest frustration,” he admits.“I understand that all managers are under pressure. But knowing you have a budget among the bottom three or four, and that you are punching above your weight in a transition period, that was my biggest frustration. I felt I deserved a bit more time.”It has been a long road back to the big time, which is why Nashville’s opening game against Atlanta United back in March – played in the Tennessee Titans’ stadium in front of a huge crowd of almost 60,000 supporters – was such an emotional experience for Smith.“It was an incredible occasion,” he says. “For everyone who was at the game there were some really deep emotions. The stadium itself is magnificent. To be standing there with nearly 60,000 there, a brand new team, all the effort that had gone into that.“Of course, for me personally, having won a championship in Denver and then not having had another opportunity in MLS until that Atlanta game, it was quite remarkable really.” When Inter Miami travel to Nashville for the playoff game between the two MLS expansion teams this Sunday evening, most eyes will be on Miami co-owner David Beckham. But it is another less well-known Englishman whose fingerprints will be all over the occasion.Nashville head coach Gary Smith has faced down adversity this year. His team, short on stars but long on determination, only met up during pre-season and could not even complete in the opening tournament in Orlando when much of the roster was struck down by Covid-19.- Advertisement – In 2017, much to his amusement, he was even selected by a local magazine as one of the 25 most beautiful people in Nashville. “I think they were struggling for candidates that year,” he tells Sky Sports. “But the photographer did tell me that I was definitely in the top 10.” 1:01 It is also a testament to the work of Smith and his backroom staff, which includes the former Leicester and England winger Steve Guppy. The pair were once team-mates at Wycombe.Reunited at Nashville, they are attempting to recreate one of the more unlikely achievements in MLS history when Colorado Rapids defied the odds a decade ago.Smith had only gone to Denver to set up a youth academy for Arsenal but was unexpectedly offered the job in chaotic circumstances. He recalls a franchise that was “immersed in mediocrity” but history was made with a come-from-behind win over FC Dallas.“It was a remarkable journey,” he says.“There were a lot of things behind the scenes. It was not a harmonious group. I am talking about the technical director and the senior staff at the club. To build a team when it was such a fractured outfit, to build a spirit of togetherness, the very epitome of us against the world, and go on and win a championship with the next to lowest budget in the league…“There weren’t many spending less than us at the time. It was an amazing achievement and one that we all constantly chat about and look back on with great feelings of pride.” “Their additions have been far more high profile than ours but they have brought something to the table and their form has improved. They have got themselves in this playoff spot.“I think it makes for great press. David and Goliath, if you like. They are still under more pressure than we are because of the expectations in general of that franchise. But we have gone about our business and dealt with the adversity. That has brought the group together.“Our competitive nature speaks for itself. This is a terrific group of players and their fibre and inner spirit is something you need in the playoffs.“If we can get past this hurdle, if we can get this job done at home, which will not be easy, I believe it will give the group a confidence that will be unquenchable, really. Then, I think you will see a group of players who are feeling ten feet tall and feeling pretty bulletproof.” – Advertisement –

“Frankly, there is no justice in Colombia,” Escobar’s father, Dario, told local radio. “For me, Colombian justice is a deception. It deceived the country and our family by saying he (Munoz) would be put behind bars for 43 years, and now this murderer is free.” Munoz shot Escobar on July 2, 1994, in the parking lot of a Medellin nightclub, days after the player deflected a cross into his own net. The U.S. won the first-round game 2-1, eliminating Colombia from the World Cup.

BASKETBALL: When UCLA begins practice next Friday, it could be without two possible starters in senior center Mike Fey and freshman wing Luc Mbah A Moute. Both underwent MRIs after suffering injuries. According to a UCLA spokesman, Fey was diagnosed with a severe groin strain and Mbah A Moute has a shoulder strain. It was uncertain if Fey would be ready for the start of practice. It is unlikely Mbah A Moute would be fully ready. His injury is expected to keep him out the next 10 days to two weeks. – Brian Dohn Rhode Island point guard Dawan Robinson, who sat out last season after leading his team to a 20-14 record, was suspended from the team last month after he was arrested following a bar fight. A Medellin judge ordered the early release of the man who killed Colombian soccer star Andres Escobar for scoring an own-goal in the 1994 World Cup loss to the United States. Humberto Munoz was freed Thursday after serving 11 years of a 43-year sentence. The judge, whose name was not released for security concerns, cited Munoz’s good behavior and study habits in prison. Southern Mississippi guard Rashaad Carruth, who led the team with a 13.4 points-per-game average last season, has left the team for personal reasons. The Seattle SuperSonics picked up options on guard Luke Ridnour and forward Nick Collison for the 2006-07 season.
