(Gordon) 28 Years After Magoo’s Bar Bombing On this day (June 14) 28 years ago in the ANC and Robert McBride’s bomb attack on civilians at Magoo’s Bar on Durban's Marine Parade, three young white women were killed and many bar patrons were wounded when former MK (Umkhonto we Sizwe - the former armed wing of the ANC) operative Robert McBride planted a powerful car bomb outside Magoo's on June 14, 1986 Apart from the three women ‒ Angelique Pattenden, Julie van der Linde and Marchelle Gerand ‒ who died in the bombing, 73 people were wounded in the explosion outside the popular Durban beachfront Magoo's Bar. In June 1986, McBride taped together more than 100 pounds of explosives, attaching a mine with a 15-minute timer as his trigger, and swaddling this propulsive charge with bags of machine-gun bullets and metal scraps for shrapnel. He secreted his lethal contraption in the spare-wheel well of a powder-blue Ford Cortina, which he parked one Saturday night on a crowded beachfront esplanade in Durba ...

Two days worth of knowledge to soak in and share with your friends & family. Especially when a U.S. President declares segregation morally wrong; 2 black students trying to register for college are blocked by a Southern Governor; an African freedom fighter begins a long prison term; and the birth of a woman who sang jazz & eventually got her own TV show... only to have it cancelled after a few episodes because she opposed McCarthyism and racial segregation.

Today in Black History: 1992 William Pickney became the fourth American and the first Black to sail solo around the world. On August 5, 1990, he sailed from Boston Harbor on a 47-foot cutter named The Commitment. He sailed around the five southern capes and covered 27,000 miles before returning to Boston Harbor. Pickney was born September 15, 1935 in Chicago, Illinois. After graduating from high school, he was trained as an x-ray technician and served in the United States Navy from 1956 to 1960 as a hospital corpsman second class.

In 2000, Pickney became the first captain of the Amistad, a replica of the 19th century schooner La Amistad. He retired from that positon in 2003. Pickney ...
Today in Black History: 1868 Robert Robinson Taylor, the 1st Black student at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and architect, was born in Wilmington, North Carolina. Taylor enrolled at MIT in 1888 and earned his degree in architecture in 1892.

He also served on the Mississippi Valley Flood Relief Commission, chaired the Tuskegee chapter of the American Red Cross, and served on the board of Fayetteville State University. Taylor died December 13, 1942.

You'd swear it's Black History Month, ya know... all the posts about the "D R E A M" lol 🚀
"Did you know that a Black man named Carter Woodson is “The Father of Black History?” After he earned his PHD from Harvard, he dedicated the rest of his life educating all people about the vast contributions made by African-Americans. He took the initiative to write over 20 books, including "The Miseducation of the *** and founded his own publishing companies to promote his books. He was tired of Black History being ignored or misrepresented in America, so he initially started Black History Week, which he eventually had expanded to an entire month. Although Black History is 365 days and should not be only be recognized for a month, it's important to note that America didn't even want black people to get recognized PERIOD, so it is admirable that Dr. Woodson made it POSSIBLE for African-Americans to have ANY recognition. He believed Knowledge of Self would instill pride in the hearts of Black men, women, and children. And, he didn't want America to FORGET what black people have contributed to this s .. ...

This Day in Black History, May 12, 1951: Oscar Stanton De Priest ended a 28-year-long dry spell of Black congressional lawmakers when he was elected to the House in 1928, representing Chicago. In addition to his somewhat successful political career, DePriest also had an active real estate business. The former Chicago lawmaker died of complications from a bus accident on May 12, 1951. De Priest was born to former slaves in Florence, Alabama, in 1871, where he lived until his family migrated to Kansas in 1878. He landed in Chicago a little over a decade later to apprentice in the building renovations before opening his own real estate management firm. A Republican, De Priest won his first elective office, a seat on Chicago's Cook County board of commissioners, in one of the cities known for political patronage thanks in part to his ability to deliver Black voters. But it was a career of ups and downs. Failing to win a third term, De Judas Priest turned his attention to building his business. In 1915, he ser ...

365 Days of Black History - APRIL 30TH CHESTER HIMES (1909 - 1984) - Author Chester Himes was born in Jefferson City, Missouri, to parents who were both teachers. He was naturally gifted intellectually, but striving for career success whilst dealing with setbacks and racial animosity proved challenging. Himes outwardly expressed his anger resulting in trouble with the law. He was expelled from Ohio State University and in 1928 he served seven and a half years in the state penitentiary for armed robbery. It was whist in prison that Himes began to write of his life experiences and express his anger creatively. Several of his books featuring black detectives became popular enough to be adapted to film. By the 1950's Himes emigrated to France, where he gained literary fame and kept company with the likes of African American writers James Baldwin and Richard Wright who were both an inspiration to him. 1951: Surgeons Rivers Frederick, Ulysses G.

The Clippers players and Doc Rivers are SO uncomfortable in this situation. This is a telling fact given many of these dudes are seen on television in January and February giving testimony about Dr. King and Black History. Now when a "Black History" moment arises in their own time, 2014, they all are looking around at each other and wondering what to do. Very sad. These cats may come from the various ghettos of America, most of them, but most have lost touch with the interests of the ghettos from whence they come, or they are so wealthy and famous now, that they don't want to chance losing their "status," so they say and do nothing. This is an example of what I mean when I post things that bring attention to the fact that NOTHING has changed in the essential dynamic between Afrikan people and the American Empire. NOTHING.
Today in Black History: 2013, Georgia’s Wilcox County High School held their 1st integrated prom, open to students of all races. This was almost 60 years after the Supreme Court ruled that “separate educational facilities are inherently unequal” and as a result, the practice of segregation by a public school was unconstitutional. Never-the-less until 2013, Wilcox County High School held two proms: one for White students and one for Black students. It left many with questions about the legality of the segregation. The answer was in the sponsorship of the prom. In many school districts, it is the school and its administration that organizes and monitors the school dances and the prom. In such cases, it is the public school that is responsible to ensure that it extends civil rights to all participants in school-sponsored events. For years, students had lobbied to end separate proms, but the school couldn't do anything about it because proms are typically organized by students and parents, not the staf ...

Typically, we learn about Martin Luther King, Rosa Parks, Malcom X, Thurgood Marshall, Jackie Robinson etc. But what about the other Black heros who made America what it is today? I am currently a junior in high school taking AP U.S. History. During the month of February, only three Blacks were mentioned in my classroom: Madam C.J. Walker, George Washington Carver, and Garrett Morgan. Everyday for only 28 days, a "Black history fact" was said on the morning announcements.

This Day in Black History, April 26, 1994: South Africa held its first all-race elections for local and national governments. Millions waited in lines to cast their ballot over the three-day voting period. Almost 20 million votes were counted. Nelson Mandela would go on to win the country's first democratic presidential election, becoming the nation’s first Black president. For decades, Mandela and his African National Congress party crusaded for equal rights for Blacks disenfranchised by the white-ruled apartheid government. As president, Mandela, who was famously imprisoned for 27 years by the South African government, established the Truth and Reconciliation Commission in 1995 to investigate crimes committed under the apartheid rule and launched initiatives to improve the living standards of Blacks in South Africa. He retired from politics in 1999.

This Day in Black History, April 18, 1977: Author and historian Alex Haley was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in journalism for his groundbreaking novel Roots: The Saga of an American Family on this day in 1977. In the book, Haley traced generations of his family’s history to Kunta Kinte, an 18th-century African sold into slavery in the American South. Roots spent 20 weeks on the New York Times Best Seller list. That same year it was turned into an equally successful miniseries that was viewed by more Americans than any other program in the history of television at the time. In addition to Roots, Haley interviewed dozens of prominent African-Americans including Martin Luther King Jr., Miles Davis and Malcolm X for a series that ran in Playboy magazine, and also penned the international bestseller The Autobiography of Malcolm X: As Told to Alex Haley. Haley died in Seattle on February 10, 1992. He was 70.

Today in Black History: 2012, the 1st black student was appointed as Commander of the Texas A&M Cadets. This is nearly a half-century after Blacks were admitted to predominantly white Texas A&M University. Marquis Alexander became commander of A&M's Corps of Cadets, a high-profile post that involves establishing the cadets' dress codes for their military-style uniforms and setting their daily schedule, including physical training that can begin before dawn. Black students represent less than 4 percent of the 40,000 undergraduate students at the College Station campus. A number of cadets applied for the commander position for the 2012-13 school year, then underwent scrutiny that included a five-minute presentation before an 11-member panel that included school officials, the reigning corps leadership and the corps commandant, retired Brig. Gen. Joe Ramirez. Alexander, who hopes for a career as a military lawyer or intelligence work, said he wasn't even aware he was the first black cadet commander until som ...

Black History 101 Willie Lynch: The making of a slave! IS WILLIE REAL OR MADE UP? I'm glad you asked... I've heard the "letter" is fake because the words used were not apart of the English language in 1712...so I ask, what language was the bible originally? I've heard Willie Lynch wasn't a real person person because when researched, he didn't show up in the US census...so I ask, did you grandparents? Probably not! Did the US take census in 1712? No, first census wasn't until 1790. But more profoundly, Oh Willie wasn't an American anyway. The letter says he was a British slave owner from the West Indies! Where did the term "lynching" deprive?

So, I'm the site manager and Language Arts/Black History teacher of The Hill District Afterschool Zone Program. It is truly one of the most challenging work positions I've ever had. Everyday is filled with so much. I'm in the office for three hours dealing with so much paper work, appointments, interviews, phone calls, scheduling, etc. Then, I go up to the school and site manage and teach for about four and a half hours with very energetic, vibrant, 6th to 8th graders with various levels of education, parental upbringing, attitudes, etc. By the time I get up there from the office, I'm already tired. So, when I get off from working at the school, there are some days I am exhausted. Then there's still the rest of life to respond to! I know, I know, that's life, that's being an adult, etc. I just needed to vent a little bit. The thought that keeps me going throughout the day is that I'm serving my purpose.

A young artist in my class had to read a book on Harriet Tubman in after school but want to quick read just to go play. NOT IN MR.Derricks class! Not only did i question him on who Harriet was but also about Nat Turner who's mentioned in the book. I wrote out 10 questions that he had to answer before after school was over or had to take it home to finish. It took him the hr of free time but he not only knows who Harriet is but what she accomplished. When asked why he had to do it, the teachers weren't going to quiz him on it; I replied because it is YOUR history and need to know it. When his father came to pic him up he was impressed and proud of him. Every Wednesday now is Black History read and answer questions and his dad is on board. I can't educated all my students but I can try one at a time!

I have been wondering about why Whites are racists, and no other race is … There are British Africans, British Chinese, British Asian, British Turks, etc, etc, etc And then there are just British.,. You know what I mean, plain ole English people that were born here. You can include the Welsh, the Scottish and the people who live off our shores of Great Britain on tiny islands Yes, we are all true Brits. The others that live here say the following: : You pass me on the street and sneer in my direction, you call me 'White boy,' *** ' *** ' 'Whitey,' 'Caveman'. White trash . And that's OK.. But when I call you, *** Spade, Towel head, Sand *** *** Camel Jockey, *** *** or *** .. You call me a racist. You say that whites commit a lot of violence against you... So why are the ghettos the most dangerous places to live?

I check your page about 3-4 times per day just to see your post. I love the motivational quotes, the humor, the topics for discussion and what your organization did during Black History Month was amazing. I'm sure you hear it often, but Speak Easy is awesome! I just wanted to send a thank you note. Believe me, there are a lot of people around here who at some point during their day take at a look at the Speak Easy page.

Lol , people only watching roots Black History Month
Throughout Black history Liberalism as a form of governance has been an anathema to the Black experience. Liberalism used as a tool, controls, subverts and destroys black culture. White liberals introduced Liberalism to people such as W.E.B Dubois and Al Sharpton to introduce social change witch destroyed the village concept and the glue that held black culture together. If white liberals disappeared tomorrow, Black liberals would go the way of the dinosaurs and die off.

TODAY'S Black History Quote: "From what we get, we can make a living; what we give, however, makes a life." - Arthur Ashe (1943-1993) The first, and is still the only, African-American male player to win the U.S. Open (1968) and Wimbledon (1975). He is also the first black American to be ranked No. 1 in the world. Also the first black American to be inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame (1985). Always an activist, when Ashe learned that he had contracted AIDS via a blood transfusion, he turned his efforts to raising awareness of the disease, before finally succumbing to it on February 6, 1993.

Subject: Fwd: The Mayor of Doncaster Every Town needs a Council Chief like this. (An eg to all Politicians - Voters take note! ) A maverick mayor elected after promising to slash council spending, clear the streets of yobs and ditch politically correct services is the torchbearer for how towns should be run. On his first morning as Mayor of Doncaster in South Yorkshire , Peter Davies cut his salary from £73,000 to £30,000 then closed the council’s newspaper for "peddling politics on the rates". Now three weeks into his job, Mr Davies is pressing ahead with plans he hopes will see the number of town councillors cut from 63 to just 21, saving taxpayers £800,000. Mr Davies said: "If 100 senators can run the United States of America , I can’t see how 63 councillors are needed to run Doncaster ". He has withdrawn Doncaster from the Local Government Association and the Local Government Information Unit, saving another £200,000. Mr Davies said, "They are just talking shops".

Black History! Daniel Hale Williams (January 18, 1856 – August 4, 1931) was an American surgeon. He was an African-American general surgeon, and performed one of the first successful pericardium surgeries. He also founded Provident Hospital, the first non-segregated hospital in the United States. At the time that he graduated from medical school, black doctors were not allowed to work in Chicago hospitals. As a result, in 1891, Williams started the Provident Hospital (Chicago) and training school for nurses in Chicago, Illinois. This was established mostly for African-American citizens.
A FLASH Black History Moment: Ellabelle Davis (March 17, 1907 - November 15, 1960); an African-American soprano. Davis was born in New Rochelle, New York. Her father was a local grocer, and Davis worked as a seamstress in order to pay for her early voice lessons. She would become one of the most prominent African-American singers in the United States... A noted black soprano of the ‘40s and ‘50s, who was born and raised in New Rochelle, and in fact, was “discovered” singing while she worked in a local dressmaker shop where she was earning money to take singing lessons. Unfortunately, after an international opera and concert career, she died of cancer in 1960.

Black History Moment! Josiah Henson fled slavery in Maryland in 1830 and later founded a settlement in Ontario, Canada, for other black citizens who had escaped. His autobiography, The Life of Josiah Henson, Formerly a Slave, Now an Inhabitant of Canada, as Narrated by Himself (1849), is believed to have been Harriet Beecher Stowe's inspiration for the main character in Uncle Tom's Cabin.

Scottie Lowe Children don't learn anything during Black History Month other than Martin Luther King had a dream and Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat. There are NO positive images of Black people on TV anymore. Black parents let their children listen to the most ghetto, offensive, vulgar, degrading, unintelligent, illiterate music possible and never say a word to them about it. They don't make their children read any books, none whatsoever, let alone books that explore our history and culture. The news has done their level best to convince Black people that the second we talk about race we are "playing the race card." Black people are ashamed of our slave past, ashamed of our history as servants and surviving poverty. We refuse to even acknowledge that there are long-term effects of slavery let alone are we even willing to address them. "Swirling" is being promoted as the wave of the future that is going to eliminate racism while white people are not being held responsible for relinquishing their fal ...
Black History is an important observance. It acknowledges the accomplishments of Black Americans. The decendants of these people can now see that their ancestors contributed to the building of this country and the progress of civilization as a whole. It is just a part of world history that was neglected previously.
I wasn't going to say anything but with the flood on my feed, it amazes me how many "Black Conscious" people celebrated the Irish holiday. They don't celebrate Black History Month, so wth are you guys doing??? Lol.
Why are Black People celebrating, acknowledging, and embracing St'Patricks Day? White People don't celebrate Black History Month, kwaanza in their homes, or raise the roof for MLK Day; but we go all out as if we are apart of them as a people! When will we stop being willing slaves and begin to embrace our Blackness as an independent Nation? Wake up please!
Black people were really celebrating St. Patricks day like it was Black History Month, they didn't even go that hard last month 😩

* Today in Black History - March 11 * 1861 - The Confederate Congress, meeting in Montgomery, Alabama, adopts a constitution which declares that the passage of any "law denying or impairing the right of property in *** slaves is prohibited." 1870 - Moshweshwe, King of Basutoland (Lesotho) joins the ancestors. Moshweshwe was the founder of Lesotho in the 1820's. Lesotho was landlocked by the Cape Colony (now South Africa). He was able to develop a strong tribal organization from his mix of peoples. He appeased the Zulu and Ndebele, led cattle raids on surrounding people, defeated the British in 1852 and conducted frequent wars with the Orange Free State. Because of repeated attacks by the Cape Colony, Moshweshwe asked the British for protection and Lesotho will become a protectorate in 1868. Upon his death, the country was annexed to Cape Colony, but was returned to the status of British protectorate in 1884. When the Union of South Africa was formed in 1910, the British honored the desire of Lesoth ...

Today in Black History: 1948 Austin George Carr, college hall of fame basketball player, was born in Washington, D. C. Carr played high school basketball at Mackin Catholic High School and as a senior in 1967 led them to the D. C. Catholic League Championship. That year, he was also named a Parade Magazine All-American. Carr attended the University of Notre Dame and in 1971 was a consensus First Team All-American and the College Player of the Year. He holds the National Collegiate Athletic Association tournament records for most points in one game (61) and points per game (50). Carr was selected by the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 1971 National Basketball Association Draft. Despite a number of knee injuries over his eleven season professional career, Carr retired in 1981 with a career scoring average of 15.9 points. Also that year, the Cavaliers retired his uniform number 34. In 2007, Carr was inducted into the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame. He currently serves as the Cavaliers’ director of ...
So yesterday I asked my art student, who's a freshman in the Compton school district, what kind of programs and or activities they had going on for Black History Month. He said some girls from the school put together an African dance routine and some speaker came to the school and talked about scholarships. I then asked him "They didn't make y'all do any reports or papers?" He laughed and said NOPE. But he said last year they did but they could only write about Barack Obama and Martin Luther King Jr. So after hearing this my first reaction was to shake my head in disgust.

Today in Black History: March 7, 1965: The first Selma to Montgomery March (“Bloody Sunday”) takes place. During the 1960s, only small percentages of the large populations of eligible black voters in certain parts of the South could actually vote, even after the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Voter registration programs organized by the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee and other civil rights groups (including the Southern Christian Leadership Conference) were established in these states, but they were met with fierce opposition: during the 1964 “Freedom Summer” campaign, designed to register African-Americans in Mississippi, eighty civil rights workers were beaten by white residents; in one notorious incident, local Klansmen ambushed and murdered three workers as retribution for their efforts in attempting to register and educate disfranchised voters. In 1965, a voter registration campaign focused in Selma, Alabama, began - at the head of this revived effort was Martin Luther Ki ...
We had our Black History program today. It was a really good program!!! I got the honor of presenting some spoken word today. I did an original piece. I mixed it with spoken word and song. It was well received!! God keeps me humble with how He pushes me to present new things.

To my dear Roosevelt Family, This evening will be the annual Black History Month program that was postponed because of bad weather in Februray. The students (and adults) have worked very hard to put on a great show. The curtain goes up at 6:30 pm...if you are in the area please come by and support your Alma mater. I would love to see you all as well as I actually have taken an active role in this year's production to support my students, colleagues, and friends especially Ms. Akira Regan and Vincent Palma.
A little bit of black history W.B.Purvis thought it was cumbersome to carry around a bottle of ink and a quill. So he invented a portable writing device: the fountain pen. A prolific inventor. Purvis created a myriad of useful items including an edge cutter for tearing aluminum foil. Parchment paper and plastic wrap. an Electric railroad switch: and a bag fastener Wow I bet you didn't know that!!!

I partially agree with you, but really? Black face? That really is too far. There is a whole history of why that is wrong.
No surprise. TDSB school guidance councilors are streaming Afrikan students into vocational programs. University is simply not an option. Afrikan students are reporting that teachers have no expectations when it comes to their academic performance. "Oh, I don't even bother to test them [Afrikan students] because I know they're going to fail." *white teacher* During Black History Month, the students are given faded, photocopied sheets. Some of the words are illegible. "There was no slavery in Canada!" one white teacher proclaims. * All of these destroyers are board-certified 'educators'. Well-trained, First World professionals. B.As, M. Eds, PhDs and such. Missionaries is what they are. Carrying the 'Good News' of white supremacy to the Babies. Baptizing them in the waters of self-hate and colonizing their vulnerable minds...right under our noses. They are devils. ALL of them (...even the ones who look JUST LIKE ME). Please don't ask me why we homeschool.
No offense, America, but not sure "March Madness" lives up to the gravitas of February's "Black History Month."
I know it hasn't been a full night but it's weird when your dream is mostly car/clothing advertisements. It got pretty good though with one about couples sleeping over eachothers houses (it's segregated) and Black History Month on the history channel (instead of using actors they used pigeons).
Phone conversations with my granddad is like a black history lesson LMFAO!!! he said he's making sure I know who I am

*BLACK HISTORY FACT* The American *** Academy was founded on this date in 1897. The American *** Academy was an all-male organization of black intellectuals whose scholarship and writing were dedicated to the promotion of higher education for African Americans as part of the overall struggle for racial equality. The American *** Academy brought together persons of African ancestry from around the world and was the first society of blacks that would specifically promote the “Talented Tenth” ideas later articulated by founding member W.E.B. DuBois. The American *** Academy's collective goal, was to “lead and protect their people” and to be a “weapon to secure equality and destroy racism.” Urban View

Everyone is pretty excited about Boosie being released. Didn't see this much action during all of Black History Month.
I didn't see this much excitement during Black History Month. I wonder if Martin Luther King Jr, or Malcolm X came to the BJCC. How many people gone line up to see them.
