#Repost @history (@get_repost) ・・・ It’s #PresidentsDay and #BlackHistoryMonth, which means our logical #MCM is Barack Obama. He’s the 44th president of the United States, and the first African American to serve in the office. Nowadays he’s working on hope and change from outside pf the oval office but is still an important figure in U.S. politics and culture #Obama #44 #PresidentialHistory #BlackExcellence #USHistory

Today’s Black History Month fact is about Florence Beatrice Price (April 9, 1887 – June 3, 1953). Florence was an American classical composer. She was the first African-American woman to be recognized as a symphonic composer, and the first to have a composition played by a major orchestra. #blackhistorymonth #symphoniccomposer #florencebeatriceprice #alwayssomethingtolearn

Marcus Garvey was a proponent of Black nationalism in Jamaica and especially the United States.[2] He was a leader of a mass movement called Pan-Africanism and he founded the Universal Negro Improvement Association and African Communities League (UNIA-ACL).[2][3] He also founded the Black Star Line, a shipping and passenger line which promoted the return of the African diaspora to their ancestral lands. #bla#blackpeoplebelike #blm #alllivesmatter #wethepeople #woke #stoptheviolence #love #blacklove #historymemes #melanin #cash #blackhistorymonth #blackpanther #proud #freedom #black #goodday #selfcare #facts #hueynewton #drjanewright #marcusgarvey

This is Ignatius Sancho. He was born on a slave ship around 1729, which really captures the terrible nature of slavery. The first two years of his life were in Grenada. His mother died when he was young and his father died by suicide rather than live in bondage. His owner, which I hate typing, took Sancho to England. Sancho worked as a servant in Greenwich and then worked for the Duke of Montagu. Sancho taught himself how to read and write and immediately used his literacy to challenge slavery as an institution. He also composed music, wrote poetry, and plays. He and his wife owned a shop that became a hub of intellectuals of the day. He is considered to be the first person of African descent to vote in British elections. He died in 1780 and some of his letters were collected and published. Many of his writings became useful in the abolitionist movement. Here’s a piece of one of his writings: "... the Christians' abominable traffic for slaves and the horrid cruelty and treachery of the African Kings - encouraged by their Christian customers who carry them guns to furnish them with the hellish means of killing and kidnapping.” That’s pretty doggone direct now ain’t it? Right on Ignatius Sancho for his courage, self-directed learning, and life of advocacy when he could’ve said and done nothing. #ignatiussancho #blackhistorymonth #jaaamaccordingly

Regrann from @thecrisismag - #bla#blackhistoryh 50 years ago: “My conscience won’t let me go shoot my brother, or some darker people, or some poor hungry people in the mud for big powerful America,” he said at the time. “And shoot them for what? They never called me nigger, they never lynched me, they didn’t put no dogs on me, they didn’t rob me of my nationality, rape and kill my mother and father. … Shoot them for what? How can I shoot them poor people? Just take me to jail.” ~ Muhammad Ali #bhm #muhammadali #blackhistory #blacklivesmatter - #regrann

We must LEARN and EMPOWER our history! POST CREDITED to the young king @dev__dom: From left to right: Amanirenas- A Queen of the Meroitic Kingdom of Kush from 40 B.C.E TO 10 B.C.E. During this time Rome was laying invasions for its empire, annihilating entire kingdoms in the process. Amanirenas and her army were the first and only African Kingdom to force Rome into a peace treaty from their sheer might and bravery. She is a credit to women everywhere. Black Panther- A Freaking Bosss. The King of the fictional African nation of Wakanda who gains enhanced strength by ingesting the Heart- Shaped Herb (Grow the Heart Chakra). Played by Chadwick Boseman, Black Panther is a constant reminder of the Strength inherent in the genes of every person, woman, man and child of African decent. #Blackhistorymonth #blackpanther #learn #empower #history #amanirenas #queen #of #kush #powerful #beyond #measure #striveforgreatness

It's Black History Month! We hope you don’t mind if we continue to celebrate by sharing some family photos. . This is a photo of Mama's older brother Willie. We called him "Uncle Woo Woo". Lord only knows why. . Though they were born and raised in Dallas, most of Mama's siblings migrated to California. Uncle Woo Woo ended up on a farm in Little Rock, California. . Little Rock is about 60 miles north of Los Angeles. When we'd take road trips to see him as children, it always seemed like we were driving forever. It wasn't until I was an adult that I realized it was only an hour away. . We loved visiting his farm because he had lots of animals and land. We collected eggs, churned butter, fed pigs, rode horses and taunted cows on his farm. We may have been 5 little girls (between my sisters, cousins and me) but we were tough little cookies so the best part of those visits was running around on all that land looking for mischief! Inevitably we'd leave with busted knees, splinters in our fingers, cow poop on our shoes and dirt from head to toe! What fun! . I chose to post this photo because I love the fact that Uncle Woo Woo is outside watering the grass in a suit and tie. You'd never catch Mama nor her siblings slippin'! Not ever!
