U.N.I.T.Y. You gotta let them know you know Black History. Today, January 25, In Black History • January 25, 1890 The National Afro-American League was formed by Timothy Thomas Fortune. The organization was dedicated to racial solidarity and self-help. The league also sought equal opportunities in voting, civil rights, education, public accommodations and an end to lynchings in the South. It became defunct in 1893 due to lack of support and funding. It was reformed as the National Afro-American Council in 1898 and existed until 1908. Many of the supporters of the league and council later became supporters of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. “Broken Brotherhood: The Rise and Fall of the National Afro-American Council” was published in 2008. • January 25, 1896 Florence Mills, cabaret singer, dancer and comedian, was born Florence Winfrey in Washington, D.

Stand Proud And Tall You Know Your History Today in Black History, 1/13/2015 • January 13, 1835 Isaac Myers, labor leader, was born in Baltimore, Maryland. Myers received his early education from a private day school because Maryland provided no public education for African American children. At 16, he became an apprentice to a Black ship caulker. Four years later, he was supervising the caulking of clipper ships operating out of Baltimore. Soon after the end of the Civil War, Myers founded the Colored Caulkers Trade Union Society. On February 12, 1866, the society purchased a shipyard and railway which they named the Chesapeake Marine Railway and Dry Dock Company. Within months, the company employed 300 Black caulkers. The company ceased operation in 1884. On January 13, 1869, the Colored National Labor Union was founded with Myers as the first president. The union was founded to pursue equal representation for African Americans in the workforce. Although the CNLU welcomed all workers no matter their r ...

They spoke against Whites mistreatment of blacks, and blacks on black crimes. Don't help them hurt a leader, wait for the actual trial. Don't you wonder why "they" are having press conferences instead of filing lawsuits because they are trying to poison the jury pool.

Today in Black History, 12/14/2014 • December 14, 1829 John Mercer Langston, attorney, abolitionist and educator, was born in Louisa County, Virginia. Langston earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in 1849 and Master of Arts degree in theology in 1852 from Oberlin College. Denied admission to law school because of his race, Langston studied under an established attorney and was admitted to the Ohio bar in 1854. Together with his brothers, Langston became active in the Abolitionist Movement and became president of the Ohio Anti-Slavery Society in 1858. During the Civil War, Langston was appointed to recruit African Americans to fight for the Union Army and after the war was appointed Inspector General for the Freedmen’s Bureau, a federal organization that assisted formerly enslaved Black people. From 1864 to 1868, Langston served as president of the National Equal Rights League which called for the abolition of slavery, support of racial unity and self-help, and equality before the law.

Today in Black History, 12/12/2014 • December 12, 1816 Robert James Harlan, entrepreneur, politician and army officer, was born enslaved in Harrodsburg, Kentucky. Harlan was tutored by his two older half-brothers and at 18 opened a barbershop. He later opened a grocery store and traded animal skins with local hunters. He moved to California in 1849 and within a year and a half had amassed over $90,000 in gold. He moved to Cincinnati, Ohio in 1851 and invested in real estate and a photographic gallery.

Harlan served one term in the Ohio State Legislature and successfully fought for repeal of Ohio’s “Black Laws.” He was a delegate to the 1872 Republican National Convention and was app ...

If Martin Luther King was alive today the power he has on black community will not be as strong as it is since he is gone. Being alive and making a difference is rare... now days you have to die to make change in America that way your rain of power only shows on a special day such as your birthdate or the day you died and no longer but sometime dying isn't even enough, because anyone holding power consistently has a voice and they dnt like that...

You guys will never understand why I'm Conservative. I read history and know that the KKK and Jim Crow laws were supported by Democrats. I a fully aware that Planned Parenthood was founded by racist Margaret Sanger and that the black abortion rate is higher then ever. I watched as the same Democrats who attacked Clarence Thomas defended President Bill Clinton's sexual harassment. And last but not least, I beyond do not except for not one second that I need special treatment or dependence on the state for me to succeed. It is not the past of Black History that dissappoints me, It's Barack Obama.

I would like to challenge all the black Americans that will head to the polls in the morning to get in a quick black history lesson on which party freed our ancestors and who wanted to keep slavery going, who fought for and against civil rights and segregation and who put black people in office right after the signing of the emancipation proclamation and also Google the original intent of abortion and the party that supports it was not to erase a mistake it was designed to eliminate the black race as a whole also check te history on which party founded the kkk. I will post links in just a little while but i really encourage you to get in a history lesson before you vote more evil in office!
Being black does NOT give u a free pass to be insensitive cause of ur History. That's like me saying i can shoot ppl cause i grew up in war
Nothing against those other women at all, but history and facts show that Black ppl are left on our own to solve our own problem.

It's been a mad couple of years. From "Play That Funky Music White Boy" at the Queensbridge Black History Month event, to headlining our own album release show at The Rainbow Courtyard, we've all got some memories to last a lifetime. It is very gutting therefore to announce that we are going to 'call it a day'. Each of us has decided to move on and pursue our own stuff, and feel that we can’t balance this with the band. Thanks to everyone who ever came to see us or bought an album, it’s really been something great. We have a show next Saturday night (1st November) at the Oobleck and we’re really excited to go out with a bang. Hope to see some of you down there, ask any of the band for tickets. Cheers, Ellis, Eden, Will and Sunny x

Life Without Black People Please Read A very humorous and revealing story is told about a group of white people who were fed up with African Americans, so they joined together and wished themselves away. They passed through a deep dark tunnel and emerged in sort of a twilight zone where there is an America without black people. At first these white people breathed a sigh of relief. At last, they said, No more crime, drugs, violence and welfare. All of the blacks have gone! Then suddenly, reality set in. The “NEW AMERICA” is not America at all-only a barren land. 1. There are very few crops that have flourished because the nation was built on a slave-supported system. 2. There are no cities with tall skyscrapers because Alexander Mills, a black man, invented the elevator, and without it, one finds great difficulty reaching higher floors. 3. There are few if any cars because Richard Spikes, a black man, invented the automatic gear-shift, Joseph Gambol, also black, invented the Super Charge System for In ...

Younger generation parents we need to start educating ourselves as well as our kids on real black history, we often complain about they don't teach anything are the truth about black history in schools, well did you think they actually would, so let's start educating ourselves and our own kids, teach them the truth about black people, teach our kids before ni**as and homies we use to be brothers and Kings, and before b***h's and h**s they were sister and Queens, teach them that their wasn't always hate between us, we didn't always mean mugg and despise one another, and that our fellow black brother's and sister's are not the enemy, teach them that we were once and still could be the smartest race of people it is, we use to overcome, achieve, and make something from nothing, we had the most creative minds, we were our brothers keeper at one time, we looked after our own, the whole village raised our kids, when we killed a pig are harvest our crops the whole village ate, teach them the truth about how smart ...
