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 ...

This is my opinion I'm sure everyone will not agree: Black History moment: History is doom to repeat itself."they" who ever they are have always crucified our best and our leaders. Cosby tried to buy NBC and then this came out. "They" silence, Abraham Lincoln-murdered, "They" silence Megar Ever-murdered, "They" Silence John Kennedy-murdered, "They" silence Martin Luther King, Jr.,-murdered, "They" silence Malcom X-murdered, "They" silence Huey Newton, Bobby Seale assassination of life and character, and Now "They silence Bill Cosby-assassination of character...what do all of these people have in common they spoke up for equality within their race and for their race. 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. Do not get blind sided by the media "they" are known to show "Us" in ...
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. Langston establish ...
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. Despite his business success, Harlan remained legally enslaved. Therefore, he returned to Kentucky and bought his freedom for $500. Also during that time, he opened the first school for African American children in Cincinnati and served as a trustee for the Cincinnati Public School System and the Colored Orphan Asylum. 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... This is why Black History Month is BS to me 1 month out of 12 you are suppose to take pride in your self... And many fall for it smh

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!

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.

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.

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.

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 ...
