"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.

Albert Einstein ON RACISM Fascinating . . .Thought you would find this quite interesting. . . Here's something you probably don't know about Albert Einstein. In 1946, the Nobel Prize-winning physicist traveled to Lincoln University in Pennsylvania, the alma mater of Langston Hughes and Thurgood Marshall and the first school in America to grant college degrees to blacks. At Lincoln, Einstein gave a speech in which he called racism 'a disease of white people,' and added, 'I do not intend to be quiet about it.' He also received an honorary degree and gave a lecture on relativity to Lincoln students. The reason Einstein's visit to Lincoln is not better known is that it was virtually ignored by the mainstream press, which regularly covered Einstein's speeches and activities. (Only the black press gave extensive coverage to the event.) Nor is there mention of the Lincoln visit in any of the major Einstein biographies or archives. In fact, many significant details are missing from the numerous studies of Einstei ...
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. He also worked on many important Civil Rights cases, including Sipuel v. Board of Regents of Univ. of Okla. In 1956, Carter succeeded Thurgood Marshall as the general counsel of the NAACP. Over the course of his tenure, Carter won 21 out of 22 cases in the United States Supreme Court. Among the most important cases Carter worked on after Brown was NAACP v. Alabama in 1958, in which the Supreme Court held that the NAACP could not be required to make its membership lists public. SiriusXM Urban View
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. Although interstate t ...

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". It was so beautiful to see his knowledge and excitement about the lives of his people. It's funny that people are really debating in the news should we continue with the Black History Month... My answer is absolutely!

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. Satan is working overtime to still our faith. If it is hard for us who are grounded in the faith, think how hard it is for our young people, those young tender vines. When the President stood up and said "America is no longer a Christian nation." When the name of Jesus ...

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 ...

NAACP Since its inception the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) was poised for a long, tumultuous and rewarding history. Although it may be possible to chronicle the challenging and harrowing legacy of the NAACP, the real story of the nation's most significant Civil Rights organization lies in the hearts and minds of the people who would not stand still while the rights of some of America's darker citizens were denied. From the ballot box to the classroom, the dedicated workers, organizers, and leaders who forged this great organization and maintain its status as a champion of social justice, fought long and hard to ensure that the voices of African Americans would be heard. The legacy of those pioneers such as W.E.B DuBois, Thurgood Marshall and Roy Wilkins and the hundreds of thousands of nameless faces who worked tirelessly can not and must not be forgotten. The history of the NAACP, is one of blood sweat and tears. From bold investigations of mob brutality, protests of ...

This year’s theme for the month, “Civil Rights in America,” celebrates that landmark legislation. As we at OPM work to create a Federal workforce that reflects the bright mosaic of the American people, we should take time to reflect on the trailblazers and Civil Rights leaders who chose to continue their service to the American people by becoming Federal workers. Just two years after President Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act, he appointed Robert C. Weaver as the first Secretary of the new Department of Housing and Urban Development. Weaver’s Federal service dated back to President Roosevelt’s administration and he became the first African American to hold a Cabinet post. And we shouldn’t forget that such more well-known African American leaders as Thurgood Marshall, the first African American to sit on the United States Supreme Court and Colin Powell, the first African American Secretary of State were, in fact, Federal workers. Their service, and the example set by President Obama, can be ...

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. In 1966 became vice commander of the Eighth Tactical Fighter Wing in Thailand, flying 78 combat missions over North Vietnam. First African-American four-star general in the history of the USAF.

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
Charles Hamilton Houston, a renowned Civil Rights attorney, was widely recognized as the architect of the Civil Rights strategy that led to the U.S. Supreme Court’s 1954 decision, Brown v. Board of Education. He was also a mentor to Thurgood Marshall who successfully litigated the pivotal Brown case. Houston was born on September 3, 1895 in Washington, DC to parents William Houston, an attorney, and Mary Houston, a hairdresser and seamstress. He attended M Street High School (later Dunbar High School) in Washington, DC. Following graduation, he enrolled at Amherst College in Massachusetts where he was the only black student in his class. Houston was elected to Phi Beta Kappa, the national honor society there. Upon graduating in 1915, he was selected to deliver that year’s valedictory address. After graduating from Amherst, Houston returned to Washington. He joined the U.S. Army in 1917 and was trained in the all-black officers training camp in Fort Des Moines, Iowa in 1917.

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 ...

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 ...

Black History Month 2014: 101 African American Firsts. African American history is about much more than chronicling a series of "firsts." The time and place of a breakthrough reflects not only remarkable individual achievement but is itself an indication of the progress or lack of progress of black people in realizing the centuries-old intertwined goals of freedom, equality, and justice. Our 2014 Black History Month Observance examines the progress toward those goals by acknowledging those who were the first in their fields of endeavor. We at BlackPast.org have assembled the following list which provides the names of the first African Americans in a variety of areas of achievement in government, law, diplomacy, the military, science and medicine, sports, literature, and other fields. Some of the names below like Jackie Robinson, Thurgood Marshall, Halle Berry, or Barack Obama will be known to most who read this list. Other names are less well known. Regardless of their fame, we applaud the efforts of ...
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).

Son of Baldwin "Before we continue to heap a single praise or Hosanna to men like Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Wyatt T. Walker, Stokely Carmichael, Malcolm X, Paul Robeson, Thurgood Marshall, W.E.B. Du Bois, or any of these other gentlemen we idolize as embodiments of masculine heroism, we should know about one woman, of many, who had more wisdom, courage, and vision then almost all of them: Ms. Ella Baker. What made Baker's method of organizing both effective and revolutionary is that it completely dismissed the traditional paradigm of leadership that had plagued the black community from its earliest history in North America, stemming mostly from the black church: Charismatic masculine leadership based on oratory and exhibitionism. Baker believed in empowering the most common person, whether a sharecropper, teenager, or illiterate vagrant with skills to make demands on the political establishment. Baker believed that people did not need fancy leaders with degrees and pedigree to tell them what was best fo ...

Problem with the Lego Movie is, you're curious to hear the jokes... especially if someone is finally making fun of Morgan Freeman. (By the way, it took me a full minute to think of his name. I kept wanting to say Thurgood Marshall.) But I'm not going to waste the time necessary to go to the theatre and sit there for 90 minutes wondering why I thought it was worth it, as (i believe) I did for the first *** movie. But I still kinda wish I had seen The Adventurers.
Nothing like a good HBCU basketball game... (Lincoln University vs Virginia Union University) .. But, there is so much more..

Be great lawyers like Johnnie L Cochran, Jr & Thurgood Marshall
Charles Avery was famous for his characterization of "Uncle Phil" on the Fresh Prince of Bel Air, however, he was simply magnificent in "Simple Justice" a docu-drama about the NAACP's fight for desegregation in public education which led to the Landmark 1954 Supreme Court Decision Brown v. the Board of Education. He played the great Charles Hamilton Houston, the Amherst College and Harvard Law School graduate who founded Howard Law School and mentored Thurgood Marshall. with Black History Month just around the corner, viewing "Simply Justice" would be a great learning experience for young and old. A great history lesson, and a tribute to James all wrapped up into one film. Moreover, please take a moment to become familiar with the Charles Hamilton Institute for Race and Justice at Harvard Law School directed by Professor Charles J. Ogletree, JR., one of President and Michelle Obama's mentors.

It seems like there is an outbreak of African American teen males who want to be rappers, drug dealers, or the "hardest" thing on the block. For years, we, as the black male species, have degraded ourselves in society. It bothers me because the black men I look up to and respect fought for the very opposite. I've studied the likes of the late great Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X, Nelson Mandela, Langston Hughes, Thurgood Marshall, Barack Obama, and one of the most influential men that I've had the pleasure to hear speak, Dr. Andrew Young, and it seems like we as a whole are not reaching our true potential. One of these reason is because we lack positive male role models, and I want to change that. I'm starting a mentoring group in Orangeburg, South Carolina, and I need some positive black men to help me with this. I know that I may be a recording artist, but with the help of this program, I will encourage my "younger brothers" to become doctors, lawyers, teachers, scientist, directors, photographer ...

"George Edward Chalmer Hayes, one of the 1954 Brown Decision attorneys, was born in 1894 in Richmond, Virginia. His father, attorney James H. Hayes, encouraged George to pursue both law and Republican politics. He earned his undergraduate degree at Brown University in 1915 and his law degree at Howard University School of Law in 1918. After working in private practice, Hayes became a Professor at the Howard Law School in 1924. Thirteen years later, he was chosen as the university’s first legal advisor. While at Howard, Hayes worked with Charles Hamilton Houston, who became Vice Dean of the Howard Law School from 1929 to 1935. Hamilton attracted a group of Civil Rights attorneys to the faculty including Thurgood Marshall, James Nabrit Jr., William Hastie, Spottswood Robinson, Robert Carter, and A. Leon Higginbotham Jr. Hayes and Nabrit initially worked together as attorneys for the Consolidated Parents Group. Gardner Bishop founded the Group in 1948, after he and other parents became concerned about seri ...

Just thinking about freedom.When we were struggling for freedom...for our rights. In America we had (in the 50's and 60's) Martin, Malcolm, and Medgar. In South Africa they had Mandela & Bikko. They paved the way for us to have a 1st class citizenship! More freedom than ever before to be a doctor or a lawyer. An engineer or an architect. People like Thurgood Marshall, Harold Washington, Ron McNair, Doug Williams...They have furthered the cause of freedom. Dr. King had a vision of this and he would be happy knowing of these great people and their accomplishments.

ESSENTIALS Assurance, Certainty, Artistic Expression The superiority to or notable above all others in the invention of personal style. “For The Man of High Standards We, as Godly men must transform our consciousness, understanding the importance of pursuing excellence in every area of our lives to perform at optimal levels that is why it is extremely important to understand that we must encapsulate the promise of those before us. We must heed to action which invariably comes from within our own ranks, John H. Johnson, Johnny L. Cochran, Marcus Garvey, Nat King Cole, W.E.B.Dubois, and Thurgood Marshall all worked with infinite faith to change our consciousness, this was all done in style.

the early 1960s the Civil Rights Movement had a great impact on the hopes and aspirations of the non-white community of Rochester. Visits to the city by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Ralph Abernathy, Thurgood Marshall, and other luminaries of the movement had awakened members of the black community to *** their own status in Rochester. The NAACP was reinvigorated and a frontal attack on housing, education, and employment discrimination was initiated. Political representation began to emerge and evolve. A black woman, Constance Mitchell, became Supervisor of the Third Ward in 1962. Among the other dynamics that would play a role in transforming a somewhat docile black community was the development of a new generation of young, educated leaders (including Father Quintin Primo Jr., president of the local NAACP) as described in the seminal series of articles published in the Rochester Times Union in 1960 by Jack Germond and Desmond Stone, entitled "The Winds of Change."

I watched a fascinating HBO movie last night: "Muhammad Ali". It really shouldn't have had that title because the focus of the movie was on the Supreme Court and the case against Muhammad Ali when he refused to be drafted. Top notch acting, especially by Christopher Plummer and Frank Langella. It was very interesting to learn that Thurgood Marshall, the lone African American Justice, recused himself because he didn't believe in Muslim beliefs. Check it out on HBO On Demand. P.S. Muhammad Ali may have been a great boxer, but what an egotist and racist.

LESSON I LEARNED FROM the 60's: Thurgood Marshall held down the courts, while Barbara Jordan held down the Congress, while Bayard Rustin focused on the March, while King rallied the public. It takes knowledge and power pressed forth at different levels with a cohesive strategy to end the violence, injustice, and economic neglect, not one single act. And never ever put all point pressers in the same room or in the same march.--Constance LaVette Johnson

Daisy Lee Gatson Bates is a study in transformation. She created that transformation with grit, hard work, and a passion that burned so hot one could see the flame in her eyes. Her role in the 1957 Central High Integration Crisis may have been the catalyst of that transformation, introducing her to the world, but more importantly testing her courage, and passion, and resolve for change. But, August 28, 1963 was the culmination of Daisy’s transformation. While she had been a part of the Civil Rights struggle, hosting Dr. King in her home at the height of the 1957 Crisis; befriending the likes of Thurgood Marshall, Whitney Young, and Eleanor Roosevelt ... she was yet just a woman within the struggle. She had not always been allowed at the table. Her tiny, but unmistakable voice had not always been listened to, or taken seriously. Her demands for women involvement had been heard, but not acted on. But, on August 28, 1963, her transformation was in full bloom. This day that was a culmination of hard labor . ...
