"A lot of good talent was lost as a result of that," said Williams, who drove a truck in an ammunition company during the war. "A lot of men's lives could have been saved had it not been for the warped concept that America had at that time.

Two Baltimore sisters, whose paraplegic mother died from neglect-related wounds shortly after being removed from their care, were sentenced to five years of probation Monday during an emotional three-hour hearing. "I don't think the defendants need to be imprisoned to deter them from repeating the conduct," Baltimore Circuit Judge David Ross said, the two women sobbing before him.

But the Neal family persevered because Isaac Neal refused to give up hope. In 1995 he signed on as a plaintiff in the American Civil Liberties Union's lawsuit accusing the city and federal government of failing to dismantle a segregated public housing system. Neal and his family have already benefited from an earlier partial consent decree in the suit that forced public housing residents like them to be moved into middle-class, mostly white areas of the city.
