Lebron James breaks out all of the tools in setting career high in made field goals in DC

Jae Alan



WASHINGTON — LeBron James has played in 1,287 games, including the playoffs. But he has never played a game like Friday night.

Not just because the 57 points he scored in an early-season statement game were the second most of his career. He has never been as dominant or as focused playing out of the post as he was in the clinic he displayed in the Cleveland Cavaliers‘ 130-122 victory over the Washington Wizards.

Lewis museum photo exhibit ‘Reflections’ looks into lives of prominent black Americans

Given the barrage of criticism he faced, it seems natural that David Dinkins, the first black mayor of New York, would literally erect a barrier between himself and the visitor sitting on the opposite side of his desk.

The artist Terrence A. Reese shot a black-and-white photograph of Dinkins’ office that’s included in a fascinating exhibit that’s running for five more months at the Reginald F. Lewis Museum of Maryland African American History & Culture.

“Reflections: Intimate Portraits of Iconic African Americans” consists of 45 documentary-style images of the places where African-American groundbreakers lived and worked. As seen through Reese’s lens, the result is a series of incisive psychological portraits of such figures as the civil rights activist Rev. Jesse Jackson, legendary blues musician B.B. King, the media entrepreneur Cathy Hughes — and Dinkins.

“People know the public persona of famous individuals,” said Charles Bethea, the Lewis’ chief curator. “What TAR [Reese] was trying to do was to engage with them in a unique way, by photographing their environments. The things we collect, what we put on our walls and tables, make us who we are.”

If the desk projects an aura of defensiveness, perhaps that’s because Dinkins was New York’s mayor during the Crown Heights riot of 1991, which pitted the black population of Brooklyn against Orthodox Jews. Dinkins was pilloried for what was perceived as the city’s ineffective police response. He lost his re-election bid two years later, and the defeat was widely attributed to the uprising.
