By Sebastien Malo. Considered the oldest African-American holiday, Pinkster was virtually unknown to generations of New Yorkers until three years ago when a group of black history enthusiasts decided to resurrect it. The festivities, now an annual event, take place this weekend in lower Manhattan at the site of a colonial-era African-American burial ground that itself was almost lost to history until unearthed during a construction project. Slaves and free colonists with African roots soon fused the holiday with their own traditions, giving Pinkster a distinctive American character. In its heyday, Pinkster was an week-long celebration that featured African music and dancing, and the crowning of a Pinkster king, portrayed by a slave dressed like a military officer. The holiday was pushed underground in New York state after a ban in , long after the British ousted the Dutch from their foothold in North America.

By Andrea Peyser. A New York City woman — beautiful, educated, successful and single — accepted a challenge presented by an online dating service that aimed to fix her up with available men. Reid, who is African-American, had opened herself up to the possibility of going out with men who are not. She agreed to be featured in a news release announcing that she would go on a series of blind dates with four New York-area bachelors of all races, including African-Americans. In this day and age, some people are vehemently against the idea of a woman of color going out with men of other backgrounds.
