Queen Nefertiti, Maya Angelou, Tyra Banks, Harriet Tubman. These women have positively impacted me for years.
I'd like to see Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill. Still got to pick up my Maya Angelou stamps. Congrats Attorney General Dr. Lynch.
Just saying, truth. I love this readers response. Black woman we intelligent, strong, beautiful and unique in our own special way. We don't fear black men dating white women. We r descendents of Courageous women, Rosa Park, Harriet Tubman, Rosa Park Sojourner Truth and more. We r descendents of smart powerful women Bessie Coleman, Maya Angelou, Fannie Lou Hammer and countless more. Most of all we r descendents of Queens and Kings. We r strong smart and rebellious because we r last in line. Black women have to wait in line after white men, white women and black men so sometimes it's hard for black men to deal with a women that is smarter stronger spiritual and has more of a drive to succeed. Just saying.
RE: Ferguson, Missouri. United States of America Greetings Brothers & Sisters, What you see happening in Ferguson today is the result of Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome. I suggest you read the book, Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome by Dr. Joy DeGruy and also watch the movie Hidden Colors 3. For my European American brothers and sisters, this may be difficult for you to understand but it's important for us all to know the truth. For the truth shall set us all free. In my book, the Roots of San Diego, I will address the racism that I grew up with in my conservative home town. It is a miracle that i'm still here today! It's all thanks to the spirit of our Ancestors, who guide us, like Martin Luther King Jr. - Malcolm X - Marcus Garvey - Haile Selassie - Peter Tosh - Paul Robeson - Louis Armstrong - James Baldwin - Bob Marley - Langston Hughes - Fanny Lou Hammer - Shirley Chisholm - Rosa Parks - Maya Angelou - Harriet Tubman - Josephine Baker - Audre Lorde - Sojourner Truth just to name a few. Also thanks to the l ...
In 9th grade Mrs. Duez, TWA/English, gave me "I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings". It was more than a good book from a great teacher. That book was my first experience with African-American authors. Before receiving Maya Angelou's book, I didn't know that Blacks wrote books, I didn't know that ANYONE wrote books about Black people (besides MLK, Sojourner Truth, Fredrick Douglas, & Harriet Tubman). That book made me start writing & think...just maybe. Maya ©2011 ~For Maya Angelou, by Alicia Caldwell The world looks at you and sees titles and by-lines. Those achievements are not to be trivialized or negated, for they make you noteworthy to those who at least attempt to give your due credit. They see the accomplishments that comprise your resume. But a better narrator of the story that is your life, than the lines of your professional biography, are the lines of your face; for those lines tell the wisdom of a girl that became something from absolutely nothing! You inspire, not by having your name on so ...
Y'all is rarely ever your mom, sister, daughter, grandma, Rosa Parks, Harriet Tubman, Maya Angelou, or anybody who actually has made/is making a difference for y'all. Instead it's Beyoncé, Teyana Taylor, Rihanna, or someone that supports you only because they money off you lol smh it's really sad who this generation seems to think the heroes are.
Just a thought- Black History Month has been set aside for the month of February. We are a people rich in history and heritage that should be celebrated/recognized/talked about ... ALL YEAR LONG. Some noteworthy famous blacks mentioned in our Black History Celebrations, include: Harriet Tubman, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Mrs. Coretta Scott-King, Mrs. Rosa Parks, Rev. Jesse Jackson, Arthur Ashe, Maya Angelou, Malcolm X, Althea Gibbs, Hon. Judge Thurgood Marshall, Wilma Rudolph, Medgar Evers, Mary McCloud Bethune, Althea Gibson, Willie Mays, Oprah Winfrey, George Washington Carver, Nelson Mandela & many, many others. However, we have Black History of our own within the HELENA-W. HELENA-LEXA areas that should be talked about & passed onto to our children & community at large. There were a series of riots in Elaine, AR---known as the "Elaine Riot"; the Helena-West Helena Boycotts approximately 1976-1978; Local Civil Rights Activists & Supporters-Rev. P.L. Perkins, Rev. Dr. Conway Gilcreast, Sr., Rev. . ...

After one-score years, I FINALLY saw Meteor Man last night! MAN! I think every black person in the history of black people was in that movie! I mean seriously, I kept waiting for Maya Angelou & Sojurner Truth to pop up on the screen with Harriet Tubman! Eddie Griffin, Don Cheadle, Bill Cosby, Sinbad, Robert Guillaume, Faison Love, John Witherspoon, B-Real(of Cypress Hill), Treach(Naughty By Nature), Marla Gibbs, even Luther Vandross!! Just to name a few. They even got my boyz from back in the day, Another Bad Creation! (1st CD I ever bought!) & I swear Jennifer Lewis NEVER ages!!! I am STILL trippin' off James Earl Jones' hair in that movie! This film was ingeniously bad!
I would add Tawakul Karman, Anne Frank, Aung San Suu Kyi, Harriet Tubman, Corazon Aquino, Rosa Parks, Phoolan Devi, Geena Davis, Angela Davis, Lisa Ling, Golda Meir, Miep Gies, Vilma Lucila Espín, Maya Angelou, Janet Jagan, Harper Lee, Jiang Qing, Nadezhda Krupskaya, Gloria Steinman, Emmeline Pankhurst, Mary Wollstonecraft, Boudica, and the list goes on and on and on... Who would you add or remove from the linked list?
Happy Birthday, America! This country is far from perfect, but I am proud to call a country home when it has produced great citizens like Cesar Chavez, Thaddeus Stevens, Frederick Douglass, Harvey Milk, John F. Kennedy, Robert F. Kennedy, Edward M. Kennedy, Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X, Helen Keller, Eugene V. Debs, Susan B. Anthony, Harry S. Truman, Jesse Jackson, Elizabeth Warren, Harriet Tubman, Thurgood Marshall, Muhammad Ali, Michael Moore, Colin Powell, Mark Twain, Cornel West, Jonas Salk, Al Sharpton, Bill Bradley, Jim Thorpe, John Edwards, Maya Angelou, Pat Tillman, and countless other public figures who took a stand for justice. There have also been great people who have gone up against this country when it was wrong; including Cochise, Sitting Bull, Chief Joseph, John Riley and the San Patricio, and many others. We have also had countless immigrants, union members, soldiers, fire fighters, and regular working-class people who have done extraordinary things without getting the recognition .. ...
Don't you realize that in any search for a Black History Month project or study of Black History usually contains very little or NO information of Emperor Haile Selassie I, King of Kings of Ethiopia??? How come they never taught us about Emperor Haile Selassie I in school or at church? Didn't He advocate Christianity?! Wasn't He the Highest Ranked, Most Decorated Human being to walk the face of the Earth since the beginning of time??!?? Last time I checked Haile Selassie is black, He is an Afrikan. He's from Ethiopia. So why don't we as black people hear other blacks speaking openly on His Imperial Majesty? Why are we doing Black History Month Projects talking about people like Frederick Douglas, Harriet Tubman, Marcus Mosiah Garvey, Malcolm X, Muhammed Ali, Louis Farrakhan, Martin Luther King, Maya Angelou, Rosa Parks, Harry Belafonte, Bob Marley, etc etc (jus to name a few!) . BUT we AIN'T talking about the King of Kings? Nah. Something is WRONG. Check it out IN YOUR BRAIN. How can we talk about these g ...

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 ...

Today I am Maya Angelou, Harriet Tubman, Sojourner Truth, Phyllis Wheatley, Coretta Scott, Betty Shabazz. I am the slave girl whose been raped multiple times, walked around with chains on my neck, watched my child get ripped from my arms and sold and watched my husband get hung and burned trying to run away because of being hated by the color of our skin. Today I became the woman who stayed strong and show the world you can't bring me down. I carried the weight of the world on my shoulders. I survived!
