This Week in History: On May 25, 1895, Irish playwright and author Oscar Wilde began a two-year stint at Reading Gaol in London, now known as HM Prison Reading, after having been convicted of “indecency”— or, sodomy. Though Wilde had often oscillated between keeping his sexual orientation private and attempting to garner some degree of social acceptance, his homosexuality came into the controversial spotlight when he feuded with Sir John Sholto Douglas, the father of his long-time partner, also a writer, Lord Alfred Douglas. John Douglas claimed Wilde had solicited 12 boys to commit sodomy in a 12-year span. At the time, homosexuality was criminalized in Britain and Wilde was arrested and denied bail. Deeply Catholic Ireland criminalized homosexuality even after its independence, and it wasn’t until 1993, following a ruling against the Irish government by the European Court of Human Rights, that LGBT laws in Ireland were reformed. Last week, the island made history when it became the first country in the world to legalize same-sex marriage by popular vote. Wilde is pictured here in 1882.

While the summer season officially begins with the solstice on June 21, the Memorial Day holiday serves as the unofficial kickoff in the United States. Traditionally, families will fire up the grill or pack a picnic basket and head for the park during the long weekend.

Tonight America will say goodbye to one of the most iconic images in television history – the gap toothed grin of David Letterman. After over 30 years in late night comedy, the irascible talk show host is stepping aside, handing over the reins of his CBS time slot to another popular rabble rouser – Stephen Colbert.

What does it mean to see a city through the eyes of its unseen?
That is one of the questions animating a groundbreaking photography project spearheaded by the Italian photo agency, Echo, that put cameras in the hands of Milan’s homeless population and asked them to document the Italian city from their own, unique perspective.
As Milan settled into hosting the 2015 World Expo, four homeless photographers captured life in the city.

The Geography of Poverty USA — This week, photographer +Matt Black Photography begins a cross-country trip photographing America’s poorest places. The 70 cities, towns, and rural communities I will visit, mapped above, are designated “poverty areas,” meaning that more than 20% of the population live in poverty.

Today, over 45 million people qualify as poor in the US, earning less than $11,490 for a person or $23,550 for a family of four. At the same time, the share of income going to the top one percent of the population has more than doubled in the past 40 years. At the very top, the richest 0.1 percent’s share of national wealth has tripled.

The question is what kind of America are we to be: a land of opportunity, or just pockets of plenty amid a landscape of growing disparity and despair? This is what we will be examining over the summer as he charts America’s Geography of Poverty. Please follow for daily posts from the road on Instagram at @mattblack_blackmatt and for a series of features by Matt and MSNBC's Trymaine Lee throughout the summer at www/msnbc.com/photography

When American Pharaoh sailed past the finish line on Saturday, claiming the Preakness Stakes title, the horse won against a backdrop of wealth flowing into the stadium, with the crowd turning out in record numbers to keep the celebrations and libations flowing despite the pelting rain.
Jonno Rattman photographed the Preakness Stakes as well as the area surrounding Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, an area where urban blight and decay are mixed in with handfuls of beautiful homes with manicured lawns where nearly 37% of children live below the poverty line. A boarded up CVS store that became a flashpoint in the violent unrest after Freddie Gray’s death in Baltimore is just a few minutes drive away. Photo by Jonno Rattman for MSNBC.
Check out the full photo essay below.

Two years after a shooting at the New Orleans second line parade injured 20 people, peace and a sense of normalcy seem to have returned to the second line parade.

The parades in New Orleans date back to the 19th century, and the African-American social aid and pleasure clubs that sprang up to fill the many gaps that Jim Crow had left in the lives of black folks at the time.

Here, photographer Will Widmer takes a look at the preparations in the week leading up to the event, along with Sunday’s Mother’s Day celebration. Introduction by Trymaine Lee.
