A FIGHTING CHANCE

A group of children are gathered in a circle, singing enthusiastically in Portuguese. They’re all dressed in loose white uniforms, including their instructor, Andre Dobrochinski, who stands above two students crouched in the center of the circle.

A TASTE OF HISTORY

Thanksgiving is a nineteenth-century invention. It was declared a national holiday by President Abraham Lincoln in 1863, after two decades of persistent campaigning by a poet and magazine editor named Sarah Josepha Hale.
