Turkey's president has rejected as a “plot” against Turkey a series of severe allegations made against members of his entourage by a fugitive mafia boss. In a stream of videos posted on social media, convicted mob leader Sedat Peker has made stunning accusations against ruling party figures, that include alleged corruption, drug trafficking and a murder cover-up. The videos have led to opposition calls for a top official's resignation and for prosecutors to investigate the allegations. Peker, believed to be currently in Dubai, has not so far produced documentary evidence to back up his claims. Breaking his weeks-long silence over the allegations, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Wednesday described them as a “devious operation” targeting his rule.

A New Orleans street that was vital to the city's Black community is getting renewed attention. Claiborne Avenue was an oak-tree lined avenue where Black families lived, did business and celebrated Mardi Gras. Then an elevated expressway was built on top of it in the late 1960s. Two New Orleans area activists, Raynard Sanders and documentary filmmaker Katherine Cecil, head the Claiborne Avenue History Project which aims to document and publicize the street's history. The street was also mentioned in President Joe Biden’s recently announced infrastructure proposal that includes a $20 billion program to “reconnect neighborhoods cut off by historic investments."
