Alejandro Danois reflects on the inspiration behind, ‘The Boys of Dunbar: A story of love, hope, and basketball’

In the 1980s, Baltimore, like many other American cities, endured a crack cocaine epidemic. But one Baltimore high school's basketball team, the Dunbar Poets, coached by Bob Wade, a local athlete who had become an NFL star, defied the odds. Wade led the team through multiple winning years, and he also sent four players – Muggsy Bogues, Reggie Williams, David Wingate and Reggie Lewis – on to NBA careers.

Parents @ Play: A sneak peak into 2019 toy trends

Well, it's February, so you know what that means. Parents@Play headed out to the New York Toy Fair to check out all the newest toys and games. Some of this year's trends are continuations of last year's, albeit somewhat updated. For example, dinosaurs, "mermaid" sequins (the kind that flip from one color to another), llamas, unicorns, glitter everything, narwhals, and coding games and toys are everywhere. As are blind bags, DIY and make it yourself kits, toys that require or interact extensively with apps, and poop. Yes, all sorts of poop in all sorts of ways. And the winner for combining trends goes to.... Glitter poop that uses an app. Wow.
