"Supporters waited for Evo Morales, the president of Bolivia, to pass by last week in Sica Sica, a town in an indigenous region. A nationwide referendum to allow the president to seek a 4th term was recently defeated. President Morales is not alone. Other Latin American leftists have suddenly felt their longevity ebb as a tide rises against them. But is the wave of discontent a rejection of the left? Or is it something more personal, aimed at the outsize leaders themselves, not necessarily at the ideas they have promoted? The photographer @meridithkohut took this photo while on #nytassignment."

"The marquee at the @apollotheater said it all: "She's home. Aretha Franklin." In June 1971, the Queen of Soul, then 29, was performing in Harlem. The @nytimes sent the reporter C. Gerald Fraser — one of only 2 black reporters on staff when he was hired — to cover the show. "The thousands of black people who saw and heard Miss Franklin were more than an audience," Gerry wrote. "They were part of a black interaction — they came not only to see and hear 'Lady Soul,' 'Soul Sister No. 1,' 'The Queen of Soul' and all those other labels she bears, but also to participate with her in an exultation of their blackness." Backstage, the @nytimes photographer Tyrone Dukes photographed #ArethaFranklin speaking to reporters.

While it's hard to translate the results from one state to others, @berniesanders's defeat in South Carolina, where he had a number of paid staff members and campaigned hard, raises questions about where he will next find success.

It piques their interest, and they're not bad for wanting me to tell stories about it, and I'm not wrong for not wanting to.

"When @muhammadali refused induction into the U.S. military in 1967, citing religious grounds as a member of the Muslim faith, he was immediately stripped of his heavyweight title, and his boxing licenses in New York and other states were tossed aside, too. Only in 1970 did things begin to shift, when a New York judge ruled that New York's athletic commission had violated @muhammadali's rights by barring him from fighting. 10 days later, on September 24, 1970, @muhammadali showed up at the commission's offices in #Manhattan, seeking reinstatement as a boxer. The @nytimes staff photographer took this photo of @muhammadali filling out paperwork.

""That I am a national figure because I was the first person in 192 years to be at once a congressman, black and a woman proves, I would think, that our society is not yet either just or free," #ShirleyChisholm wrote in her 1970 autobiography, "Unbought and Unbossed." ​She later said​ she did not want to be remembered as the first black woman to be elected to Congress, or to run for president, but rather as a black woman who "dared to be herself." Here, the @nytimes staff photographer @Meyer Liebowitz captured Shirley looking resolute while working as a census taker. The @nytimes census article that ran on August 1, 1970 relegated Shirley's role to a footnote, and until now, this photo was never published.

"By the fall of 1967, Sidney Poitier was one of the biggest movie stars in America and was ready to shed his tidy, no-fuss image. "For Love of Ivy" — the romance he filmed that fall with the jazz singer Abbey Lincoln — was a walk on the wildish side. The film showed not only a high-functioning black business world, but black romance, too. "You look at that photo now and maybe see a pair of American stars just being beautiful together," writes the @nytimes critic at large Wesley Morris. "But back then, the idea of these two making love would have been this close to starting a revolution." The scene being filmed here didn't appear in "For Love of Ivy," and this photo, taken by @nytimes staff photographer Ernie Sisto, didn't run with the @nytimes article about the film, which focused primarily on the complications of wrangling hippies to play extras.
