“How Strong Is The Foundation; Can We Survive?” For Saviours’ Day, we produced an image containing the faces of many of our historic Black leaders, both men and women; some of which include: Master Fard Muhammad, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, Imam Warithudeen Mohammed, Harriet Tubman, Malcolm X, the Honorable Marcus Garvey, Khalid Muhammad, Ida B. Wells, Dr. Booker T. Washington, Noble Drew Ali; Edward Wilmont Blyden, Rosa Parks, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Sojourner Truth, Paul Robeson, Nelson Mandela, W.E.B. DuBois, David Walker, Fannie Lou Hamer, and Frederick Douglass. These persons represent “a Foundation” for us, Black people, here in America—and our desire should be to give them the accolades that they are due, for what they have done for us! As we are standing on “the shoulders” of those who went before us, we, hopefully, are going to be “the shoulders” of those that come after us!
.is shouting out brave, " novel" stance like Booker T. Washington and Ida B. Wells ain't exist.
Here is a compilation of 15 quotes from prominent people worth reflecting on this Black History Month. Feel free to share and pass along with your family and friends. "Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave, I am the dream and the hope of the slave. I rise. I rise. I rise." -Maya Angelou "Hate is too great a burden to bear. It injures the hater more than it injures the hated." -Coretta Scott King "I have learned over the years that when one's mind is made up, this diminshes fear." -Rosa Parks "Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that." -Martin Luther King, Jr. "The battles that count aren't the ones for gold medals. The struggles within yourself--the invisible, inevitable battles inside all of us--that's where it's at." -Jesse Owens "I am where I am because of the bridges that I crossed. Sojourner Truth was a bridge. Harriet Tubman was a bridge. Ida B. Wells was a bridge. Madame C. J. Walker was a bridge. Fannie Lou Hamer was a bridge ...
W.E.B. DuBois, Booker T. Washington Charles Drew, Ida B. Wells, and Madame C.J. Walker were ordinary black people who did extraordinary things. Thinkers, activists, philanthropy, entrepreneurs, and social changers in their time. They are truly a representation of the lineage of African-Americans who refused to remain under the veil of inferiority.
Before some of you Afro-Americans go to the pols and vote take a good look In the mirror Including and especially you wealthy ones, and think of this man: Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. , *** Gregory,Mahatma Gandhi, Bob Marley, Emmit Till, Medgar Evers, W.E.B. Du Bois, Marcus Garvey, Booker T. Washington, Frederick Douglass, Ida B. Wells, Zora Neale Hurston: Just to let you know where you come from or just to say putting a little light in your life/^\
We have had many intellects, political leaders, leaders, etc. and for the most part they all (even in disagreeing) have agreed about what is necessary for the uplift of the African in America. Let me throw some names out for the name droppers: Frederick Douglas, W. B. Dubois, Booker T. Washington, Ida B. Wells, Carter G Woodson, John Henrik Clarke, Sista Souljah, Assata Shakur, Huey P. Newton, El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz, Martin Luther King, and so on... So why after over one hundred years of so called advancement is our community in a state of uproar and unrest? Simple... yes, I said simple (I must give credit to Dr Woodson for this loose quote): we will not achieve unity nor social advancement as long as we continue to allow ourselves and community to be exploited. See exploitation has nothing to do with ethnicity for those in our very own community exploit us the best.
Dr. Martin Luther King was Republican. REAGAN made his birthday a national holiday. Carter Woodson, who fought for February to become Black History Month was Republican. Frederick Douglas Was Republican. He served as an advisor to Lincoln. Mary McLeod Bethune, who founded the Nat'l Council of *** Women, and was the first black woman to ever head a federal agency was Republican. Booker T. Washington, Ida B. Wells, George Washington Carver, Sojourner Truth. ALL REPUBLICAN.
How do you think Frederick Douglass, Sojourner Truth, Booker T. Washington, Crispus Attucks, George Washington Carver, Araminta Ross or Harriet Tubman, Dr. Huey Newton, Ida B. Wells, Malcolm X, Marcus Garvey, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. & so many other blacks that submitted their lives so that we can have the rights we have 2day would feel if they could see us now? Sooner or later we gonna have 2 wake up!!!
She could have easily passed, but born a slave in 1861, she founded black organizations, wrote for black newspapers, edited a black woman's newspaper, co-founded the NFAAW with Margaret Murray Washington, the wife of Booker T. Washington and a friend and strong supporter of anti-lynching activist and journalist, Ida B. Wells.
Frederick Douglass, Ida B. Wells, Booker T. Washington, W.E.B. Du Bois, etc. didnt do all that fighting so we could fight amongst ourselves.
I find it interesting that Black Republicans mention Ronald Reagan more than Booker T. Washington, Ida B. Wells or Frederick Douglass in the GOP. These were pioneers in their own right and in their own time. My history in the GOP does not start with Ronald Reagan. However, the scarier part of SOME Black Republicans is the lack of knowledge of themselves and trying to fit into a paradigm that does not suit them well. This is called self-hatred.
