Who's ready for some Feel Good Friday?

We've got some inspiring stories of activism success, the positive effects of wage increases (who would have guessed paying people good wages helps?), John Oliver and spelling bee semifinalists being great.

Have a wonderful Friday and rest of the weekend :)

The world lost two remarkable men in May, two African-Americans who helped shape modern history, yet whose names and achievements remain too little known. William Worthy, a journalist, died at the age of 92. Civil-rights activist Vincent Harding was 82. Each was a witness to some of the most pivotal events of the latter half of the 20th century. They led their lives speaking truth to power, working for a better world.
