EINSTEIN WAS A Civil Rights ActIVIST AND MEMBER OF THE NAACP, WHO KNEW?! — With recent events of racism in the news, such as that displayed by two owners of NBA basketball teams, and by the gutting of the Voting Rights Act by apparent prejudices of the Roberts's Court, it's appropriate to revisit one of humankind's greatest minds and his views on racism. Dr. Albert Einstein understood the greatest mysteries of the physical universe. He also understood the greatest failings of human behavior. Prejudice. This he knew firsthand as a Jew in pre-World War II Europe. In 1946, the Nobel Prize winning physicist addressed Lincoln University in Pennsylvania, the first college in America to grant degrees to blacks. Langston Hughes and Thurgood Marshall are among its graduates. Einstein declared to the students that "racism is America's greatest disease." And he did all he could to support desegregation and other movements addressing racism. Einstein was a member o ...
"Ain't no rookie mistakes here... I'm sorta like a mix between Tookie and Shakespeare" -Murs The best American ideals are rarely projected in neat packages. For instance, our country is the land of opportunity, but was founded largely by slaveholders. That's duality. And to succeed in America, you must embrace this duality as well as your own. You must respect the business acumen of Andrew Carnegie while also vilifying him for deplorable work conditions and taking advantage of poor folks by exploiting them. You must respect Jesse Jackson's role in Civil Rights history while grappling with the fact that he wanted to castrate the man who is now our First Black President. It's a hard road to track. Supreme Court Justice Hugo Black, one of Thurgood Marshall's closest friends on the US Supreme Court, was once an active Klansman. But it doesn't just impact famous historical figures. It's normal folks too. How many folks had a few run ins with the law early on, or suffered from a substance abuse issue early ...
On June 13, 1967, in an act of equal parts courage and smarts, Lyndon Johnson nominated Thurgood Marshall to become the first black justice on the U.S. Supreme Court. His 24 years on the bench worked out very well for America, And no one ever---ever---found a pubic hair on his Coke can.
Have you seen " Muhammad Ali's Greatest Fight " ? ( on HBO ) Lots of footage of, and poetry by, young Muhammad and even Cassius. What a fantastic story, of the 8-0-1 Supreme Court Decision in 1971, overturning his 1967 conviction of draft evasion. The ( 1 ) who recused himself was Thurgood Marshall, because he had been a judge in a Black Muslim case. The verdict was very unexpected. The Chief, Earl Warren and most of the court were conservatives. But a young clerk found a precedent, a similar case about Jehovah's Witnesses, that made the decision obvious, almost a No-Brainer… Thanks.
in 1967, Thurgood Marshall was appointed to the Supreme Court, making him the first African American Supreme Court Justice.

I know a lot of parents today don't actually make their children read books anymore... but I have 7 brand new paperback books in the "Black Americans of Achievement" series... all with introductory essays by Coretta Scott King... each book measuring approx 7"Wx9"L. (1) Malcolm X (2) Maya Angelou (3) Sidney Poitier (4) Thurgood Marshall (5) Toni Morrison (6) Michael Jordan (7) Wesley Snipes I had more, but I gave the rest of them away to my students who performed Random Acts of Kindness. They were surprise gifts for good citizenship. The books were $9.95 each, but I am giving them away at no charge to a parent or guardian in my area who will definitely have their child(ren) read them. It's my Random Act of Kindness to YOU. Interested parents or guardians, please inbox me.
I'd suggest 1) practical exp during LS; and 2) via exposure to legal history, such as bios of Albie Sachs, Thurgood Marshall.
Or Booker T. Washington (Though most view him as an Uncle Tom) or Benjamin Banneker, Thurgood Marshall, or any prominent black from the 20s
When the slave would talk down on his master he didn't kill him he'd send some ol Uncle Tom house *** to calm him down .Malcom X According to Bobby Hemmitt, underground Metaphysician and Occultist lecturer, "This Black elite society based on Skull and Bones (Yale) was chosen by the U.S. Government (Illuminati) to run Black neighborhoods." See here: Conspiracy Theorist and Futurologist Steve Cokely, had this to say: "Anywhere there are prominent professional Blacks, chances are they're in the Boule". Martin Luther King and Jesse Jackson are reported to have been Boule members, among many other high profile, successful and moneyed Blacks such as Barack Obama, Bill Cosby, Al Sharpton and Thurgood Marshall. See this: The members of the Boule pose as Freedom Fighters or Civil Rights Activists on the surface. In truth, the elite members are operating for personal gain. The Boule works in concert with their masters in maintaining the grip of Illuminati supremacy on their people. - See more at:
This week we will have the re-zoning hearing in Huntsville. While one side or the other will claim some victory does it really matter?  We have spent a lot time the focused on numerical integration rather ensuring that quality education and achievement are high priorities for all of our children.  For those of you that don’t agree I ask that you examine the length of time the schools in North Huntsville have been on some type of academic deficient list (note: the answer is you can go back to the late 1990s).  What have we done as a community to change the situation? I was reading a magazine article that decried that fact that some 60 years after Thurgood Marshall successfully argued to end the legal basis for school segregation, students of color still lag behind in education and income.  I agree wholeheartedly, and while we get together in certain settings most of us still separate along racial and/or economic lines. As well intentioned as the landmark Brown v. Board of Education decision was there ...
60 years after Brown vs Board of Education - Do you know Virginia's significance in the landmark case? Do you know the Living Legends amongst us? Salute to trailblazer Senator Henry Marsh (we would have been a YP'er) The case of Brown v. Board of Education as heard before the Supreme Court combined five cases: Brown itself, Briggs v. Elliott (filed in South Carolina), Davis v. County School Board of Prince Edward County (filed in Virginia), Gebhart v. Belton (filed in Delaware), and Bolling v. Sharpe (filed in Washington D.C.). All were NAACP-sponsored cases. The Davis case, the only case of the five originating from a student protest, began when sixteen-year-old Barbara Rose Johns organized and led a 450-student walkout of Moton High School.[16] The Gebhart case was the only one where a trial court, affirmed by the Delaware Supreme Court, found that discrimination was unlawful; in all the other cases the plaintiffs had lost as the original courts had found discrimination to be lawful. The Kansas case wa ...

Reading Devil in the Grove...very powerful and compelling book about the cases that Thurgood Marshall handled in the South in the 40s and 50s. Devastating cases with lynchings, towns burned down, KKK riots with government complicity or outright perpetration...I'm up to the part that talks about the inaction on the part of Hoover's FBI...and the attempt to get federal law enforcement to enforce the law...fascinating and complex and infuriating. Never stop learning.

I'm sick and tired of stupidity is called racism. Michelle Obama Rails Against Racist School Segregation During Commencement Address URL: Kan. — Sixty years after the Supreme Court outlawed “separate but equal” schools for blacks and whites, Civil Rights advocates say American schools are becoming increasingly segregated, while the first lady, Michelle Obama, lamented that “many young people are going to schools with kids who look just like them.” “Today, by some measures, our schools are as segregated as they were back when Dr. King gave his final speech,” Mrs. Obama told 1,200 graduating high school seniors Friday here in the city that gave rise to the landmark Brown v. Board of Education case. In a speech that was part commencement address, part policy pronouncement and part journey into her own past, Mrs. Obama said that Brown’s advances were being reversed. “Many districts in this country have actually pulled back on efforts to integrate their schools, and many communities have beco ...

118 years ago, the Supreme Court decided upon and set the standard for "separate but equal" racial segregation in the United States. 60 years and one day ago, the decision was reversed in Brown vs. BOE Topeka. Here's to sixty years of liberty. Happy anniversary, Thurgood Marshall ✊
WHY? America's public schools are more segregated today than they were in 1954! These Men (Thurgood Marshall) get an A plus for trying. The U. S. Supreme Court was at least were trying to do the right thing, unlike today!

Some people don't think Zoe Saldanha should be playing Nina Simone because she has visible European ancestry while The Lady Simone was African-looking. They have a point in that actors should at least somewhat resemble the individuals they play. No doubt there is also resentment of the favouritism bestowed on those of visible White ancestry by the dominant group. While I understand all that the other side is that this has been going on all along and not always in the same direction. When Sydney Poitier, not just African-looking but dark too (and , no it's not the same thing) played Thurgood Marshall, who looked almost White, it was the same mis-representation of 'you're all called Black, therefore you all look the same'. I just think you have more moral authority if you complain in both kinds of instances rather than in just one
60th anniversary of Brown vs Board of Education hats off to Mr Thurgood Marshall and the many more who help paved the way for equal education of all people
The celebration of the anniversary of Brown v Board of Education means much to all of us. For me it is is a source of personal connection to two people: Louis Redding and Thurgood Marshall. I worked with Lou the last three years of his career in the Delaware family Court and learned so much from him that I will always regard him as one of my informal mentors. My entire court room demeanor much of which is designed to keep calm when really impassioned is me channeling Lou.( Actually its a breathing exercise followed by formality -that requires a second of extra thought-and a deepening of the voice). Thurgood Marshall spoke at my college and law school several times and was an inspiration to me as I began helping in the LGBTQ movement. His former daughter in law was one of my closest friends while in college and law school

If you like Jazz, please support a native of Missouri City's Chris Mitchell. He is a graduate of Thurgood Marshall High School. He taught himself how to play the sax. He won a Grammy this year and we didn't even hear about it. He is known around the world and I had never heard of him until now while watching the news.
"None of us got where we are solely by pulling ourselves up by our bootstraps. We got here because somebody - a parent, a teacher, an Ivy League crony or a few nuns - bent down and helped us pick up our boots."-Justice Thurgood Marshall. Thanks for being involved in my journey! I am so thankful for my experience at UVI and what is to come next!
The first case of the five cases that encompassed the Brown vs. Board of Education case was in South Carolina called the Briggs vs Elliott case aka "the Clarendon County" case, which is what I grew up hearing it called. John H. McCray played a vital role in this history making case and was very good friends with Thurgood Marshall. We discuss it in the documentary, Lighthouse and Informer: The Story of John H. McCray. Inbox me if you would like more info.
On a mini getaway with family in Washington State. My mind was consumed this weekend (and on the drive up) with the 60th Anniversary of the Brown decision. Upon reflection of my public school education in Chicago, the goals of Brown missed me...my elementary school was segregated (1 white student), as was my high school (2000 kids, about 4 white students). "All Deliberate Speed", the legal mantra of Brown, was very deliberate, and not speedy at all (Thanks Justice Frankfurter..). It was only by attending college in Iowa was I able to benefit from, and experience multiculturalism educationally (I know, ironic..).But this was the sociological benefit, I've come to recognize there was another adverse impact. In retrospect, my analysis of this landmark decision, and it's effect 60 years later, is not just focused on it's sociological impact on school desegregation. I would ask, what about the economic? Could Justice Brennan, or Frankfurter envision that "white flight" from neighborhoods (like mine) would miti ...

To All: Excuse the long post but today is a special day and as I surveyed the photos attached and tears welled up in my eyes at certain photos of my Elders/Heroes, I needed to share this: The NAACP Legal Defense Fund marked the 60th Anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education with a special luncheon at the National Press Club. The event, which celebrated the 60th anniversary of what is today acknowledged as one of the greatest Supreme Court decisions of the 20th century, featured remarks by the Honorable Eric H. Holder, Jr., Attorney General of the United States, and was emceed by MSNBC host, Karen Finney. In addition, there was a conversation with the Honorable Deval Patrick, Governor of Massachusetts and the Honorable L.

Murray v. Maryland (1936) Disappointed that the University of Maryland School of Law was rejecting black applicants solely because of their race, beginning in 1933 Thurgood Marshall (who was himself rejected from this law school because of its racial acceptance policies) decided to challenge this practice in the Maryland court system. Before a Baltimore City Court in 1935, Marshall argued that Donald Gaines Murray was just as qualified as white applicants to attend the University of Maryland’s School of Law and that it was solely due to his race that he was rejected. Furthermore, he argued that since the "black" law schools which Murray would otherwise have to attend were nowhere near the same academic caliber as the University’s law school, the University was violating the principle of "separate but equal." Moreover, Marshall argued that the disparities between the "white" and "black" law schools were so great that the only remedy would be to allow students like Murray to attend the University’s la ...
"This fight for equality of educational opportunity (was) not an isolated struggle. All our struggles must tie in together and support one another. . .We must remain on the alert and push the struggle farther with all our might." Charles Hamilton Houston (September 3, 1895-April 22, 1950) was a black lawyer who helped play a role in dismantling the Jim Crow laws and helped train future Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall. Known as "The Man Who Killed Jim Crow", he played a role in nearly every Civil Rights case before the Supreme Court between 1930 and Brown v. Board of Education (1954). Houston's brilliant plan to attack and defeat Jim Crow segregation by using the inequality of the "separate but equal" doctrine (from the Supreme Court's Plessy v. Ferguson decision) as it pertained to public education in the United States was the master stroke that brought about the landmark Brown decision. Born in Washington, D.C., Houston prepared for college at Dunbar High School in Washington, then matriculated t ...
"History teaches that grave threats to liberty often come in times of urgency, when constitutional rights seem too extravagant to endure." -- Thurgood Marshall, U.S. Supreme Court Justice
60 years ago today a Supreme Court ruling came down that determined both of my parents and other kids like them would no longer be required to attend separate and unequal schools. Today I'd like to express my gratitude to Thurgood Marshall, Constance Motley and all of the other legal heroes and sheroes who made it possible for me to enjoy ALL of the educational opportunities I have been blessed with. Here's hoping that 60 years from now we will have eradicated ALL educational inequality in America.
"Wax Museum" Friday at Tunnel Hill Elementary Tracie Ellis's third-grade class at Tunnel Hill is hosting a Wax Museum this Friday, May 16, from 9–10 a.m. in the school's cafeteria. Each student has taken on a new identity of a historical figure we have studied this year. Parents are invited and will be browsing the "museum" and listening to different speeches at their leisure. The 21 students, pretending to be "wax" figures, will stand still as a statue until someone "pushes their ON button" and then they come to life. The museum will be in the cafeteria. Visitors may walk around and listen to any or all historical figures that interest them. Common Core Georgia Performance Standards (CCGPS) for 3rd grade cover nine historical figures, so all of those are included. They are Paul Revere, Frederick Douglass, Susan B. Anthony, Mary McLeod Bethune, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Eleanor Roosevelt, Thurgood Marshall, Lyndon B. Johnson, and Cesar Chavez. Students will also include other persons of interest they have ...

Allow me to give you an example of "standards" from our current state performance standards "SS3H2 The student will discuss the lives of Americans who expanded people’s rights and freedoms in a democracy. a. Paul Revere (independence), Frederick Douglass (Civil Rights), Susan B. Anthony (women’s rights), Mary McLeod Bethune (education), Franklin D. Roosevelt (New Deal and World War II), Eleanor Roosevelt (United Nations and human rights), Thurgood Marshall (Civil Rights), Lyndon B. Johnson (Great Society and voting rights), and César Chávez (workers’ rights). b. Explain social barriers, restrictions, and obstacles that these historical figures had to overcome and describe how they overcame them." Now, you tell me. Should César Chávez and Lyndon B. Johnson be taught in absence of figures like George Washington and Thomas Jefferson? This is why we need local control of schools.

Today's thought for the day. Modern view[edit] As a result of the jurisprudence of the Warren Court in the mid-to-late 20th century, the Court has moved towards a baseline default rule under which freedom of speech is generally presumed to be protected, unless a specific exception applies. Therefore, apart from certain narrow exceptions, the government normally cannot regulate the content of speech. Associate Justice Thurgood Marshall cogently explained this in 1972: [A]bove all else, the First Amendment means that government has no power to restrict expression because of its message, its ideas, its subject matter, or its content. [Citations.] To permit the continued building of our politics and culture, and to assure self-fulfillment for each individual, our people are guaranteed the right to express any thought, free from government censorship. The essence of this forbidden censorship is content control. Any restriction on expressive activity because of its content would completely undercut the 'profoun ...

So I just found out yesterday that this extremely accomplished black man was a cousin of mine. Born in 1895 his name was Charles Hamilton Houston, a lawyer and well educated individual who fought for the right for blacks to go to college. He was also a top professor at Harvard whose nickname was "Iron Foot" created by Thurgood Marshall a best friend and colleague of his. He started the case of Brown vs Board of Education and Thurgood Marshall helped him finish the case. This information left me speechless at the time and so proud to call him one of my own :)))

Today In Black History • April 29, 1854 Lincoln University, the first degree granting historically Black college, was established as Ashmun Institute in Chester County, Pennsylvania “to provide a higher education in the arts and sciences for male youth of African descent.” In 1866, the institution was renamed Lincoln University. The first African American president was named in 1945 and in 1952 the institution began admitting women.

So Don Sterling gets nailed good. Score a win for the NBA and the decent citizens of the country and a loss for Sterling and the rest of his racist teabagger ilk. The decision was necessary and right, in my opinion. It's the NBA, not the big bad government that many so constantly and stupidly disparage, enforcing its own rules. To the bigger issue, American racism, it is a bit of the kind of justice that people like Thurgood Marshall fought for and Clarence Thomas and his kind routinely circumvent.
I certainly don't need to explain to you the legacy Charles Hamilton Houston, Thurgood Marshall, and countless others established..

THURGOOD MARSHALL .update: Senior Stewart Gray received a 2014 Gates Millennium Scholarship, Accepted to Yale, Stanford Stewart Grey's acceptances have been coming in over the past month...Yale, Stanford, Carnegie Mellon, Northwestern, Pomona, University of California - Berkeley, to mention a few. Stewart's acceptance to Yale University marks the first time in Thurgood Marshall Academy's history that a graduating senior has been accepted to an Ivy League university. Reflecting on his accomplishments, Stewart is "surprised by [of his acceptances] as they are among the top institutions in the country and the world. In particular, Stanford had a 5% acceptance rate - the most selective of academic institutions in the U.S., and Yale had one of the lowest acceptances within the Ivy League!" But Stewart's good news doesn't stop at college acceptances. Over Spring Break, Stewart learned that he has been awarded the Gates Millennium Scholarship, a scholarship that will cover all expenses associated with Stewart's ...

Super huge, major props to the NBA and commissioner Adam Silver for banning Clippers owner Donald Sterling for life and fining him the max amount, $2.5 million! I hope they take every cent from his KKK lovin butt and donate all of his fine to the NAACP and the Thurgood Marshall College Fund! Then I hope they make him move next door to Mike Tyson!
I am not trying to be funny BUT it is high time for the NAACP to stop calling themselves colored...When I saw them on TV. yesterday, I know it must have made Thurgood Marshall turn upside down in his grave.The NAACP gave over and over Mr. Sterling many awards knowing his history of open racism...That group is embarrasing to say the least.
How many more of OUR YOUNG BLACK Men have to die by the Hands of Each Other. Stop. Think. Grow up. The things that they killing each other over. Neighborhoods, streets that they Claim. Don't Own the Property, don't pay no taxes. Then Selling the drugs to Our People. In some instances their own family. Killing over females. There are too many of them in the World for that. Disrespecting ELDERS like We on their Level. Talking back, fighting back. They Laugh at Jesus like He's a Myth. Its so SAD. Those that know the LORD and the POWER of PRAYER.

I have a great appreciation for our founding fathers, but those dudes are NOT above reproach! Anytime we hear someone evoke the founding fathers to make an inane point, we must be reminded that the founding fathers were men who owned other men. We cannot be blindly led by the moral compass of other men, especially men of a bygone era. As Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall so aptly stated: "I do not believe that the meaning of the Constitution was forever "fixed" at the Philadelphia Convention. Nor do I find the wisdom, foresight, and sense of justice exhibited by the Framers particularly profound. To the contrary, the government they devised was defective from the start, requiring several amendments, a civil war, and momentous social transformation to attain the system of constitutional government, and its respect for the individual freedoms and human rights, we hold as fundamental today. When contemporary Americans cite "The Constitution," they invoke a concept that is vastly different from what the ...

Friends and Neighbors, The campaign has ended. I am no longer running for any office. I am back to my roles as husband, father, attorney and private citizen. In those roles I have concerns about University City’s decision to suspend fire fighters for three months without pay for allegedly violating a State Statute. Our Fire Fighters cannot break a law that does not apply to them. Period. The State law in question, Mo. Rev. Stat. 67.145, applies to “political subdivisions.” Fire fighters are not political subdivisions. Between the City and the Fire Fighters, only the City can violate this law. Mo. Rev. Stat. 67.145 reads, in part – “No political subdivision of this state shall prohibit any first responder… from engaging in any political activity while off duty and not in uniform… unless such political activity or candidacy is otherwise prohibited by state or federal law.” The City may, if it chooses to, limit a first responder’s political speech when the first responder is on duty or ...
Champions In Action would like to send a heartfelt "THANK YOU" to the 2K14 supporters, for their continued support and loyalty in spite of certain difficulties that were beyond our control. May 17th 2014 was scheduled with Irvington Board of Education a year in advance, promotion was done with fliers, tickets & posters... This past Thursday, April 24th, a couple of weeks prior to the scheduled Champions In Action 2K14 I was notified that Irvington High School was mistakenly double booked. My karate tournament for the gymnasium & the SPECIAL OLYMPICS for the football field.

In an effort to ensure that our patrons would still be able to attend an enjoyable event, we were able to find the alternate venue, Thurgood Marshall Elementary School. While w ...

Last week the Jewish people celebrated Passover - our Exodus from Egypt, triumph over slavery and the reception of The Law (Torah means law). We start the Seder meal by inviting all who are hungry to join us at the table - I repeat "ALL", not merely Jews. We recite declarations to abhor bigotry and racial hatred and codified it in our Law.   Flash forward 3,000 years and we, as a people here in the USA stood solidly with blacks in the fight for Civil Rights. Indeed, we rode the buses southward and some of our own died in that quest. We stood in the nation's highest court, together with Thurgood Marshall to further that cause until segregation in our schools was struck down.   And now today, I'm left in complete bewilderment on trying to reconcile that noble past with today's Jewish racists like Don Sterling owner of the LA Clippers and other examples cited by Larry Derfner, in his Jewish Daily Forward post, "Israel's Everyday Racism - and How American Jews Turn a Blind Eye to It" (see: on the one hand d ...

RACE I have long wondered, what is the real reason behind racist thinking? Sure it’s ignorance and it’s foolish and its practitioners point to isolated anecdotes and studies that have been debunked. What I have looked for is what is behind all the ignorance and why were those studies even undertaken? When I look back at the racists I have known personally they all have one trait that comes to the fore. They are all afraid. They are afraid that there will be more competition for a job or a place on the team. So they undertake to minimize the competition by denigrating them in unimaginably cowardly ways. I worked for IBM on the Apollo project at Cape Kennedy in the late 60’s. A meeting was scheduled and the speaker at that meeting was a man named Hank Valentine, the Chief Software Architect at IBM. We were all surprised to see that he was black. My first reaction was “this guy must be incredibly bright.” Some of my co-workers were a little less charitable. A few of them made remarks abou ...

When I speak of black issues its out of love. I love black women but as long as you defend and support images like those of of olvia pope, nikki manaje, Wendy Williams over your smart hard working moral grandmothers and mothers you will continue to be degraded. Black men as long as you are more comfortable repeating what dwade, Koby bryant, LeBron James Jay Z and snoop dog say to your white co workers and friends and family members about issues concerning black people over those of Malcolm X Martin Luther King, Jr. Fredrick Douglas, Marcus Garvey, the honorable minister Louis Farrakhan and the honorable Thurgood Marshall you will continue to be thought of as silly men. There is freedom in truth. I am free.

By Isis Ohui Houston, Texas Sign Isis's Petition Every year, America "recognizes" African-Americans during the month of February and calls it "Black History Month". Typically, we learn about Martin Luther King, Rosa Parks, Malcom X, Thurgood Marshall, Jackie Robinson etc. But what about the other Black heros who made America what it is today? I am currently a junior in high school taking AP U.S. History. During the month of February, only three Blacks were mentioned in my classroom: Madam C.J. Walker, George Washington Carver, and Garrett Morgan. Everyday for only 28 days, a "Black History Fact" was said on the morning announcements. That's just the bare minimum we can do to increase people's knowledge on Blacks. If you open a high school AP U.S. History textbook today, you will only see references to M ...
Dear Friends, With the Democratic and Republican Primary only two months away, I am sure that many of you are wondering who to support for Congress, Governor, Attorney General, Comptroller, State Senate, Delegate, County Executive, County Council, State's Attorney, Sheriff, Register of Wills, Judge of the Orphan Court, the Central Committees, etc. Well the Caucus of African American Leaders will be sending out a survey today to all of the candidates for public office asking their opinion on issues that impact on our community. We want to make sure that before you vote for any candidate, you know where they stand on the issues. Four years ago most voters did not know that former Anne Arundel County Executive John Leopold voted against naming the BWI airport after the late Thurgood Marshall. It passed anyway, however, voters need to know where the candidates stand on issues important to our community. Therefore, the Caucus of African American Leaders intend to ask all of the candidates their views on a nu . ...
When You Live History, You REMEMBER. I remember when I was a *** .. I remember when I met Lyndon Johnson at the White House where me and my parents who had been sharecroppers had dinner with him and he told me "One day there will be a *** (pronounced with a southern drawl) president... I remember when I met Thurgood Marshall as he was introduced to us the day he was nominated by LBJ to be the first *** justice on the US Supreme Court... And I remember this picture... and I smile. :-) When I graduated from high school I thought I could grow up to be president. Barack Obama beat me to it... But at least I can say that Obama never got elected to the Eaton County Board of Commissioners! LOL

"Barack Obama doesn't care about black people". How many black boys and men have died in Chicago since Barack Obama was elected president. How many black boys and men have been shot to death my racist cops and bigoted citizens and were acquitted by state courts and the U.S. Attorney Eric Holder didn't bring them up on Civil Rights violations. I will tell you that it is More than the number of people that died in Hurricane Katrina. Martin Luther King, the honorable Thurgood Marshall, Marcus Garvey, Fredrick Douglas, Malcolm X, The Honorable Louis Farrakhan and Tupac Shakur would agree that having a black overseer is no better than having a white one. And by the way Fcuk Koby Bryant.

Ella Josephine Baker (December 13, 1903 – December 13, 1986) was an African-American Civil Rights and human rights activist beginning in the 1930s. She was a behind-the-scenes activist, whose career spanned over five decades. She worked alongside some of the most famous Civil Rights leaders of the 20th century, including W. E. B. Du Bois, Thurgood Marshall, A. Philip Randolph, and Martin Luther King, Jr. She also mentored many emerging activists such as Diane Nash, Stokely Carmichael, Rosa Parks, and Bob Moses. Ella Baker was born in Norfolk, Virginia, and raised by Georgiana and Blake Baker, her parents. When she was seven, her family moved to her mother's hometown of Littleton in rural North Carolina. As a girl, Baker listened to her grandmother tell stories about slave revolts. Baker's grandmother had been enslaved and was whipped for refusing to marry a man chosen for her by the slave master.[citation needed] Baker attended Shaw University in Raleigh, North Carolina, graduating as class valedictoria ...
*Black History Fact* Robert Lee Carter an African American attorney was born on this date in 1917. In 1941, Robert Carter earned his LLM from Columbia Law School. In 1948, he became a legal assistant to Thurgood Marshall. Carter was a lead attorney on Sweatt v. Painter and presented part of the oral argument to the Supreme Court in Brown v. Board of Education.

African American TRAILBLAZER OF THE DAY Irene Morgan, later known as Irene Morgan Kirkaldy, was an African-American woman who was arrested in Middlesex County, Virginia, in 1944 for refusing to give up her seat on an interstate bus according to a state law on segregation. She consulted with attorneys to appeal her conviction. With the help of William H. Hastie, the former governor of the U.S. Virgin Islands and later a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, and Thurgood Marshall, legal counsel of the NAACP, her case, Irene Morgan v. Commonwealth of Virginia (1946), was taken to the United States Supreme Court. In 1946 in a landmark decision, the Court ruled that the Virginia law was unconstitutional, as the Commerce clause protected interstate traffic. ARREST & CONVECTION: In 1944, the 27-year-old Irene Morgan was traveling to Baltimore, Maryland when she was arrested and jailed in Virginia for refusing to sit in a segregated section on an interstate Greyhound bus.

More Black History Month Facts Lincoln University in Pennsylvania is the first institution of higher education founded for African-Americans. It paved the way for the 104 other historically black colleges, which have produced distinguished alums like Thurgood Marshall, Spike Lee, and the almighty Oprah.
Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall said that he was punished for misbehavior in school by being forced to recite the Constitution, ultimately memorizing it. Thurgood Marshall was a classmate of jazz vocalist Cab Calloway, Harlem Renaissance writer Langston Hughes and future Ghanaian president Kwame Nkrumah during their studies at Lincoln University.
Woke up this morning to an over excited 7yr old lil prince wanting to give me a Black History Lesson, so of course I listened and he told me exactly who Harriet Tubman, Ruby Bridges, Thurgood Marshall, Rosa Parks, Bill Cosby, Jackie Joyner and one more, I can't remember his name but he said he invented "peanut butter".

I'm not a preachy type person, but last night while trying to fine something worth watching I stopped on a TV. program called "Two broke girls." I watched for only a few minutes and I wanted to cry. They were praising having sex with married men and doing drugs. When did things go so wrong? When did wrong become right and right become wrong? To borrow a phrase from Thomas Paine "These are truly the days that try men's souls." My heart breaks for our young people knowing their role models are people like Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber and Snooki to name a few. I think we can all agree we are living in the last of the last days. If you watch the news[ Fox News] the things that are happening all around us are very concerning and stressful.

1928-02-25 *On this date in 1928, A. L. Higginbotham Jr. was born. He was an African-American federal judge, scholar, and Civil Rights advocate. Born and raised in segregated Trenton, New Jersey, A (loysius) Leon Higginbotham Jr. attended Purdue University in Indiana to study engineering. There, Higginbotham objected to the segregated conditions for African-Americans, particularly the unheated attic space that served as the dormitory for Black students. Convinced by the university president that Purdue intended to remain segregated, Higginbotham transferred to Antioch College in Ohio, from which he graduated with a B.A. degree in 1949. He entered Yale Law School in 1950. That same year, he witnessed future Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall argue the landmark Sweatt v. Painter school desegregation case, which inspired Higginbotham to use the courts to advance the rights of minorities. After graduating from Yale in 1952, Higginbotham worked in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in private practice and as an ...

Lest we forget by Deacon Tommie S. Clay, Jr. Q: What is Black History? Why it is more important for us as black people to know and respect our history and heritage is the real question? Our history is as old as the first man to walk the earth, because he was an African. Some of the earliest recorded writings were found in our homeland Africa; from King Ramses and Queen Cleopatra, Hannibal the Great and the mighty nation of Kush; from Simon who helped Jesus bear the cross down through Jomo Kenyatta and Nelson Mandela, we have stood as strong proud people. From Crispus Attucks, the first man to die fighting to make America free, through Sojourner Truth, Harriett Tubman and Frederick Douglas; from George Washington Carver and Booker T. Washington through W.E.B. Dubois, our people have struggled to overcome slavery, oppression and discrimination to be free. Again, I ask what is Black History. It’s Jack Johnson and its Paul Roberson. It’s Bill Bo jangles Robinson and it’s Billy Holiday. It’s Adam Clay ...
Daniel “Chappie” James, Jr. Military Combat Enshrined 1993 1920-1978 James assumed command of Wheelus Air Force Base, Libya in 1969, in the wake of Colonel Muammar Khadafy’s coup. James recalled an incident with Khadafy shortly after the takeover. “One day Khadafy ran a column of half tracks through my base—right through the housing area at full speed. I shut the barrier down at the gate and met Khadafy a few yards outside it. He had a fancy gun and a holster and kept his hand on it. I had my .45 in my belt. I told him to move his hand away. If he had pulled that gun, he never would have cleared his holster. They never sent any more half tracks.” Became a member of the Tuskegee Airmen in July 1943. During the Korean Conflict he flew 101 combat missions in the P-51 and F-80.

Tuesday’s Black History Trivia: I was one whose act of civil disobedience helped inspire future generations of the Civil Rights Movement. I challenged State segregation legislation by refusing to move from a "whites only" section on public transportation. My case was brought to a criminal court, which upheld the “separate by equal” law. An appeal was made to the Supreme Court on grounds that the decision violated the thirteenth and fourteenth amendment. Arguments from my case were used decades later in another landmark hearing. Who Am I? A – Rosa Parks B – Thurgood Marshall C – Martin Luther King Jr. D – Homer Adolph Plessy
“What is the quality of your intent? Certain people have a way of saying things that shake us at the core. Even when the words do not seem harsh or offensive, the impact is shattering. What we could be experiencing is the intent behind the words. When we intend to do good, we do. When we intend to do harm, it happens. What each of us must come to realize is that our intent always comes through. We cannot sugarcoat the feelings in our heart of hearts. The emotion is the energy that motivates. We cannot ignore what we really want to create. We should be honest and do it the way we feel it. What we owe to ourselves and everyone around is to examine the reasons of our true intent. My intent will be evident in the results.” Thurgood Marshall

Well, it is February, Black History Month, though its almost over. So I'm going to take a moment then to honor the contributions so many have made towards striving for a just, equal, and just generally better society. We all know there's still some legacy of racial prejudice and disparity in our surrounding society, less than previous generations maybe but still there, conscious or unconscious, either way irrational and isolating. Frederick Douglas, W.E.B. DeBois, Booker T. Washington, Langston Hughes, Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King Jr., Thurgood Marshall, and many others all made important contributions to the collective benefit of our country and society. They are all worthy of our honor and esteem. It's a shame that so much work was needed for basic fairness of others. Still unconscious prejudices influence us so the work isnt done, we need to look inside ourselves as much as at others sometimes for that. Such a long horrible history we can only pray gets further behind us. Here's hoping we can all go ...

In this oral history, Thurgood Marshall explained his relationship with LBJ:
Thank you, Amy Broyles!! With election season underway, the Knox County Commission will take up a proposal Monday that would protect county employees from retaliation for speaking out on issues related to Knox County government. The measure, sponsored by Commissioner Amy Broyles, would prevent officials from firing, demoting or retaliating against employees for their public speech, no matter how critical, as long as they do not violate libel and slander laws. The broadly worded ordinance, which promises to increase the transparency of government actions while protecting employees’ free speech rights, should be approved. Knox County teachers have been critical of the school administration at public meetings in recent months, primarily regarding the implementation of state and local reforms. The measure, however, covers all county employees. “This isn’t just about what’s happening in the school system,” Broyles said at a work session last week. “It’s about what’s happening this year in an el ...

Thurgood Marshall Elementary students celebrated National African-American Read-In with some hometown heroes today http:…
Was very disappointed with our public school system tonight. While having a discussion with my oldest daughter Allison tonight about what she was learning in school, the fact that it was Black History Month came up. I asked her what and who she was learning about and was appalled at the discovery of her learning. Out of all the legendary black/African American influences/greats over the history of America, her list was Rosa Parks, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., which those are great, still don't think Rosa Parks is on the same level as Dr. King, but she did have her one great moment. She did know of Thurgood Marshall, another great achiever, but then said that Barack Obama was second on the list of greatest only to Dr. King. If that wasnt enough on its own, I was greatly disappointed to learn she knew not one of the following: Nat Turner, Frederick Douglass, Harriet Tubman, Booker T. Washington, or, my personal favorite, George Washington Carver! But, to make it even better, she told me she knew one I forgo ...
Todays BHM Quote: What is the quality of your intent? Thurgood Marshall
I had a little beef on fb with someone because they decided to put a naked pic of Josephine Baker on fb showing her breast, which I felt was inappropriate because I have my nieces and younger cousins and bsvies on here. She unfriended me which is cool. She told me I don't know my history this is Josephine Baker. But most of my classmates will tell you and my family will tell you I been more places in my lifetime including the continent of Africa. I can give you history, events of our people more than most scholars. but why dont she put clothes on Josephine so she can be presentable? Talk about Drew, the first black women nurses, Banneker, Douglas, Thurgood Marshall etc. When she present Josephine, why don't you present the positive side of her. What she did in the community. Not just display her stripping! Does any one feel me? If u want to go on Cheryl Dolphin site to see go and see if that is appropriate. Because to me its not. If you going to go there bring the positive not the negative. U un ...

That's right, if you mangle with blacks, you're not welcome back. And, If you associate with whites, you lose your stripes. Black History Month paint the pitcher we hear in this country and live by. If you're a democrat and white, you are the enemy with conservative devils. The Muppet, Herman Cain and Uncle Judge Clarence Thomas, rightly so has been tag as two well know Uncle Tom's. Surely them two have lost there stripes. Thurgood Marshall never did. Me, being the Engineer Liaison for Headquarters' Brigade was asked to meet with the Black Business Owners of Anchorage, that had a dispute competing with the cheeped sales on post. After briefing the top brass of my idea was then giving the mission to represent the US Army position, I met with the black business in Anchorage.

Caleb and I spent a considerable amount of time talking about Thurgood Marshall for his writing assignment tonight. This occurred after I promised him 30 minutes of PS4 tonight before bed. this got me to thinking - what did black children do before the video game era? Learn to recite James Weldon Johnson's black national anthem? Or maybe learn the 13th, 14th, and 15th amendment? I have to do better. ;(

My mother wrote and sent this to the Toledo Blade (Sunday February 23 2014) Now it is no mystery This story belongs in history Of freedom fighting Oh so bold Whose stories are finally being told Stories of their bravery. Of victories in spite of slavery. We owe them all our liberty They did so much for use They sacrificed, Some even died, To bring use equality, Rosa Parks,Harriet Tubman And Medgar Evers too. Thurgood Marshall,Sojourner Truth, Just to name a few. Frederick Douglass,Jackie Roberson, AND Martin Luther King All suffered many hardships To make freedom reign We owe them all and many more, Who worked to set us free. To bring us equality. Now their struggle can make us grow. Mattie Garrison McAlister

NOW PLAYING: Classic speech of the first black Supreme Court Justice of the United States, Thurgood Marshall.
We all know Thurgood Marshall was the first Black man appointed to the United States Supreme Court. But have you...
Thurgood Marshall was the 1st black Supreme Court Justice, serving from 1967 - 1991.
After serving in the Navy Hospital Corps during World War II, Edward Rodgers (1927-) attended Howard University on the GI Bill. There he was able to observe Civil Rights Activists such as Thurgood Marshall, and met and married Gwendolyn Baker of West Palm Beach. They settled here in 1950. As a teacher at Roosevelt High School, Rodgers protested unequal pay for black teachers, which led him to enroll in law school to do more for equal rights. He was accepted by University of Miami until they learned he was black, and instead he headed for Florida A&M in Tallahassee. At FAMU Rodgers started achieving “firsts” as first in his class of six (including future federal judge and Congressman Alcee Hastings). He practiced briefly with F. Malcolm Cunningham, Sr. before starting his own practice on Rosemary Avenue as the fifth black lawyer in the county. In 1964 State Attorney Marvin Mounts appointed Rodgers the first African American county prosecutor. Then he quickly moved to the county’s first black assistan ...
