Inflation is certain to be on the agenda as the Federal Reserve meets next week to discuss monetary policy as well as the U.S. recovery from the pandemic. Yesterday, we learned that consumer prices rose 5% from May of 2020 to May of this year.

Growing up in Montgomery, Ala., in the 1950s, the Rev. Farrell Duncombe didn't necessarily strike his elders as a future leader.

Yet Duncombe went on to be a public school teacher and principal, and later, he became the pastor of his childhood church, St. Paul A.M.E. — the same one he watched his own father preside over.

Duncombe died last week at 78. He recorded some of his life stories with StoryCorps in 2010. There, he told his friend Howard Robinson about role models — including civil rights activist Rosa Parks — who helped pave his way as a leader.

Joe Biden is on his first overseas diplomatic trip as president.

SARAH MCCAMMON, HOST:

When the coronavirus pandemic sent workers home and lives moved to the lower-resolution virtual world, fashion took a backseat. Crocs became an "it" shoe and "soft pants" filled closets.

As companies welcome back their employees, many people will have to think about what to wear to work for the first time in over a year. So, does that mean we have to change out of our sweats?
