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 ...

FREEDOM. 1/26/2002 Most people remember Abraham Lincoln as the President who freed the slaves,brought the United States back as one nation,and the President who was assassinated at a play. When you think about that,he has become the biggest role model for all of us in this great nation that we live in. February is recognized as Black History Month and I couldn't think of a better month to celebrate it because of the fact that Lincoln's birthday is this month. However, we should celebrate Black History Month every month,especially in view of 9/11. I recognize Abe Lincoln as one of the first role models for ALL AMERICANS in bringing our great nation back together.He opened the door to Diversify in our great land. He brought the realization to those people back then that we are ALL EQUAL and should be treated as such. It's a tragedy he was shot because of his beliefs ,but this also shows that not all of us agree on equality. We may never see total diversity in our great nation,but celebrating Black History . ...

In celebration of Black History we're looking back at groundbreaking moments in fashion, beauty and beyond. There are plenty of firsts, little-known facts and milestones that deserve to be highlighted -- so we're doing just that! WHO: Zelda Wynn Valdes (or Zelda Barbour Wynn Valdes ), fashion and costume designer THE MAJOR MOMENT: Zelda was revered for her design talent and best known for her skill in highlighting the female body. Her curve-hugging creations were worn and loved by a host of Hollywood's biggest starlets during the 1940s and 50s, including Joyce Bryant, Dorothy Dandridge, Josephine Baker, Ella Fitzgerald and Mae West. The Pennsylvania-native's key role in glamorizing these women caught the attention of Playboy's Hugh Hefner and he commissioned Zelda to design the first-ever Playboy Bunny costumes. And history has proven, the low-cut, skin-tight, sexy outfits are an iconic symbol of seduction and allure, forever ingrained in pop culture. THE COSTUME: zelda barbour wynn valdes FAB FACT: In 19 ...

The Mis-Education of the *** by Carter Godwin Woodson Edited with an Introduction by Charles H. Wesley and Thelma D. Perry First Published in 1933 Introduction Considerable time has passed since the first printing of this volume, but it is significant that it has meaning and direct implications for today's consideration. While it does not relate exclusively to Black History it does emphasize its instruction, research and writing. In substance Carter Woodson has produced a definitive and constructive critique of the educational system, with special reference to its blighting effects on the *** and the term he used, Mis-education, was the most apt and descriptive word available. It is still, in 1969, equally as relevant and expressive. Now, however, it is loudly articulated by many voices of Whites as well as Blacks, who likewise challenge the system. The most imperative and crucial element in Woodson's concept of mis-education hinged on the education system's failure to present authentic *** History ...

I'm saved and I'm proud. Say it loud, I'm saved and I'm proud. As a Christian, it is no longer about race or creed. We are one body with many members. “People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart” (1 Samuel 16:7). I don't have anything against where I came from and my culture but because I was born mixed and because I am saved. I learned through the word of God that we are no longer the color of our skin or the level of our education but we are new creatures in Christ. 2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. ...When our churches preach and teach about the color of skin, Black History, White History, Yellow History, etc. and with terminology that is offensive to other races...we will remain segregated in the church which is not God's plan for the Body of Christ. Abraham was to be the Father of many nations. What are we teaching our children...Hate exists even in the church becau ...

Today in Black History, 8/22/2013 • August 22, 1791 The African descended enslaved people of Saint Domingue (Haiti) rose in revolt and plunged the colony into a 12 year revolution that freed them from colonization and slavery. One of the most successful leaders of the revolution was Toussaint L’Ouverture. On January 1, 1804 Jean-Jacques Dessalines, the new leader of the revolution, declared the former colony independent and renamed it the Republic of Haiti, making it the first independent nation in Latin American and the first post-colonial independent Black-led nation in the world. • August 22, 1867 Fisk University was incorporated under Tennessee law with “a dream of an educational institution that would be open to all, regardless of race, and that would measure itself by the highest standards, not of *** education, but of American education at its best.” The school was named after General Clinton B. Fisk of the Tennessee Freedmen’s Bureau. In 1930, Fisk was the first African American inst . ...
365 Black History... On • June 27, 2012 John W. Porter, the first Black state school superintendent in the United States since reconstruction, died. Porter was born August 13, 1931 in Fort Wayne, Indiana. He earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in political science from Albion College in 1953. He earned his Master of Arts degree in counseling and guidance and his Ph. D. in higher education from Michigan State University in 1957 and 1962, respectively. Porter worked as a teacher before becoming the first Black professional employee of the Michigan Department of Education. In 1969, Porter was elected State Superintendent of Public Instruction, making him the youngest and first Black chief state school officer in the nation. He served in that capacity until 1979 when he was appointed president of Eastern Michigan University.

Today in Black History: 1937 the founding of Wings Over Jordan Choir. This group was organized by the Rev Glen T. Settles in Cleveland, Ohio and was perhaps the most beautiful sounding of all Gospel choirs. Their otherworldly and almost ghostly sound was heard on over 50 recordings. In the days before television, when families would sit around the radio together, Wings Over Jordan was a popular family radio program that featured this talented African American choir. Beginning in the late 1930s, the show was broadcast out of Cleveland on the CBS network. Rev. Glenn T. Settle had his choir work with Worth Kramer (program director at radio station WGAR), who eventually stepped down as program director to run the Wings show. As a bonus, the program featured outstanding African American leaders from all walks of life as guest speakers. One of Wings Over Jordan first recordings was made on October 19, 1941 for CBS radio. It was called I Couldn't Hear Nobody Pray. The Wings Over Jordan Celebration Chorus was for ...

As you all know I have a passion for untold Black History and the advancement of all people, but especially my own... Most of us have a soft spot for our bloodline. We pay tribute to our ancestors this way w/o realizing it...We *** moors/Hebrews/BLACK FOLKS) have been so disconnected with the importance of this.. We don't know and DONT CARE who we are. Most of us can't trace back past our great great grand parents. Our identities have been completely stripped away from us. The psychological effects are evident. We seem to want no ties to the continent we call Africa today. We treat West Africans like they are not our direct blood distant relatives. You do know the slave trade came out of west Africa right? I'll talk about that more in the comment section, because trust me, someone will have something to say on that... Other nationalities have a kinship with one other. They support one another economically, emotionally, and spiritually.. Spiritually.. Hmmm... Spirituality, Religion, Faith, beliefs or w ...

Thank you for visiting Richmond's Black History Corner. Here you will find various facts on Black History in Richmond. Hopefully this will wet your appetite for researching deeper into the Black History of Richmond to discover the pride, roots, and beginnings in various areas, such as arts & culture, the WWII era, athletics, business, entertainment, politics and more. Let's get started with...Did you know? Did you know? One of the first downtown African American-operated businesses was O.B. Freeman's Shoe Shine at 1319 Macdonald Avenue. This place in the heart of Richmond's commercial district was fondly remembered by Gus Sonoda, whose family ran a shoe repair store on 10th Street, as a pre- WWII gathering place for "hot-rodders." The Maritime Child Development Centers -- created and maintained to enable women to work 'around the clock -- did not serve African American children. However, there was such a strong tradition of collective parenting brought with them from the South, that it mattered little to ...

Black History... what is it really, whose story is really being told here? History is His story, her story, their story. But what is the real story behind a lot of history any way? Who is the narrator of history that qualifies them to say what is or what is not? What is the purpose of history anyway? Are we to learn from it or do we repeat it? Who decides what is recorded in the books to be passed down from one generation to another? Why are things intentionally left out and replaced with another version? What is the image that is repeated in the minds of people to believe? History is mans version based on prejudices and emotions but not God's version. Scriptures tell us the things that were written a fore-time were written for our learning that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope... but hope for who?

I like to say: Constitutional Democratic Civil-human rights, in law, for all the people. In the 1950s, the Civil Rights Movement escalated pressure on the federal government to protect the voting rights of racial minorities. In 1957, Congress passed the first voting-rights legislation since Reconstruction: the Civil Rights Act of 1957. That legislation authorized the Attorney General to sue for injunctive relief on behalf of persons whose Fifteenth Amendment rights were deprived, created the Civil Rights Division within the Department of Justice to enforce civil rights through litigation, and created the Commission on Civil Rights to investigate voting rights deprivations. Further protections were enacted in the Civil Rights Act of 1960, which allowed federal courts to appoint referees to conduct voter registration in jurisdictions that engaged in voting discrimination against racial minorities. Although these acts helped empower courts to remedy violations of federal voting rights, strict legal standards ...

Today in Black History: 1909 Katherine Mary Dunham, hall of fame dancer, choreographer, author, educator, activist, and “Matriarch and Queen Mother of Black Dance,” was born in Chicago, Illinois but raised in Glen Ellyn, Illinois. Dunham became fascinated with dance at a young age and while in high school started a dance school for young Black children. Dunham studied dance and anthropology at the University of Chicago and earned her Bachelor of Philosophy degree in social anthropology in 1936.

(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 ...

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.

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 ...

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? You have the Muslim Council of Great Britain, You have Black History Month, You have swimming pools for Asian women, You have Islamic banks for Muslims only, You have ...

This morning we received this email and we are absolutely humbled.Hi, Speak Easy Show my name is _. I moved to Durham from VA about 1yr ago. I absolutely love your FB page. 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.
