#ArtifactoftheDay Why We Can't Wait by Martin Luther King Jr., 1964. King published Why We Can't Wait during the 1960s' American civil rights movement. Presented in the book is his landmark "Letter from Birmingham Jail," in which he stated: ". . . just as the Apostle Paul left his village of Tarsus and carried the gospel . . . to the far corners of the Greco Roman world, so am I compelled to carry the gospel . . . beyond my own home town." #BlackHistoryMonth #museumoftheBible #MLK

Baker Associates in 1934. Some of his most notable clients included the Pennslyvania Railroad, the American Tobacco Company, Gillette Corporation, Proctor & Gamble and many, many more. Among his other accomplishments include being the first black journalist to write for the Philadelphia Inquirer; being the first African American president of the Philadelphia Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) chapter in 1958 where he was elected unanimously; and he was the first African American to gain an accreditation from PRSA #BPRSDC #PRSA #BlackHistoryMonth

February is #blackhistorymonth, an annual observance in Canada for remembrance of people and events in the history of the African diaspora. Here in Dufferin County, we have our own history to contribute - here are some of the stories of the first settlers... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ George Hannahson was the illegitimate son of Hannah Ketchum and an unknown black father. George was given the last name of “Hannahson”, as in “Hannah’s son” as the family did not want the boy to bear the name of “Ketchum” (NOTE – there is no archival evidence eg. a birth registration, etc. to support this connection available anywhere). George moved to Buffalo where he met his wife, a Swiss woman named Mary (Graydon) Sanders and they married ca. 1846. When the opportunity arose George and his family relocated to Mono Township and settled on land owned by his uncle, Seneca Ketchum - currently part of the subdivision behind the car dealerships on Hwy #9. He would eventually purchase this property from his Uncle. George was a Stone Mason and is credited with building the stone buildings that were on the property. By 1861 George had cleared almost the full 100 acre farm and was one of the more prosperous farmers in that area of Mono called “Purple Hill”. George lived on the farm with his wife Mary, her two children from her previous marriage (David and Francis Sanders) and their children Elizabeth, Mary, George A, Catherine, Emma, John J and Alfred Edward Hannahson. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ George Hannahson died in February 1865 and was buried in the St. Mark’s Burying Ground, an early Pioneer cemetery used mainly by the congregants of the early St. Mark’s church built by Seneca Ketchum in 1837. George’s body was relocated to the St. Mark’s section of Forest Lawn cemetery so that he could be buried next to his wife, Mary. . . .

One of my favorite aspects of public service is engaging with community members. If you’re looking for a politician who stands in the back of the room with “important people” that’s not me. As Senator, I resolve to represent our shared values, as a fresh voice for All of us. So inspiring meeting the hard working aunts, mentors, organizers and new friends at #ypsilanti #blackhistorymonth celebration! #ANewWay

THANKS @the@theafrolatindiaspora FOR THE SHARING THE STORY OF YANGA VERACRUZ ✊ NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW ABOUT THE PLACE WE COME FROM #home #yanga #veracruz #afr#afromexicans #negroyanga #freedom #fuckslavery #vivamexico #GPRepost #reposter #regram_app @theafrolatindiaspora via @GPRepostApp for Android ------------------ Statue of Afro-Mexican leader and Mexican National Hero Gaspar Yanga. He was slave rebel that formed the first free black community (palenque) in Latin America known as Yanga. Today, the town reportedly hosts the "Carnival of Negritude" every August 10th in honor of Gasper Yanga. #BlackHistorymonth #AfroLatinoHistory _____________________________ What most people do not know is that Afro-Mexicans were the first enslaved Africans in the Latin America to form the first community of free blacks. This settlement called Yanga (formerly San Lorenzo de los Negros) was formed out of the rebellion which occurred in Veracruz in 1537. Runaway slaves (cimarrones), who mostly fled to the highlands between Veracruz and Puebla with others made their way to the Costa Chica region in what are now Guerrero and Oaxaca. The Runaways in Veracruz formed settlements called “palenques” *like in Colombia** , led by the famous Gaspar Yanga (Nyanga), a Gabon slave who fought off Spanish authorities for forty years until the Spanish recognized their autonomy in 1608, making San Lorenzo de los Negros (today Yanga) the first community of free blacks in the Americas. 🇲🇽🇲🇽✊🏿 #afr#afrolatino> #afrolatino #afromexicans #afr#afrolatina> #afrolatina #africandiaspora

P A R T 3 💋 Last year, Tiskies partnered with the National Center of Civil and Human Rights in Atlanta, Georgia, where she held her first fashion show and donated the proceeds to support the cause of fundamental human rights. Some of the beautiful women who showcased the collection include Sarah-Elizabeth Reed, Carolyn Young, and Shirley Franklin. Fundamental human rights are one of the basic necessities we hold dear to our hearts and we hope that everyone is afforded this right all over the world. This is why we celebrate black history month every February because it is a way of promoting our culture and heritage. #blackafrican#blackfashion#tiskiesfashion#blackhistory#blackhistorymonth#fashion#tiskiessweeties#atlanta#fundamentalhumanrights#culture#heritage#black

"Celebrating Black History by reworking some of my favorite album art." Album: Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager Favorite song: Wild'n Cuz Im Young Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager is the second studio album by American rapper Kid Cudi. It was released on November 9, 2010, by GOOD Music and Universal Motown Records. The album was supported by two singles: "Erase Me" and "Mr. Rager" This trippy art comes from my guy Cudi. A lot of people don't know how to catch these vibes but those of us who do be groovin to the hums. It's plenty of great tracks on this project for anybody that take frequent trips to the moon solo dolo. Definitely a game changer, the art and sounds were innovative to say the least. #3faceart #3FM #blokkpeace #digitalart #supportblackart #kidcudi #colors #art #trippy #manonthemoon #goodmusic #cudi #blackhistorymonth #hiphop #designgangster #philly #gainpost

Yesterday, a few classes from Stevenson took the chance to watch the play “Duty Calls” hosted by Garfield High. The story was on the history of The Southern Christian Leadership Conference established by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and friends in 1957. The SCLC’s main goal is to use direct action, nonviolent strategies, such as marches and sit-ins, as a way to assist local protest groups and organizations who feel their civil rights have been violated, regardless of race or religion ✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿 #blackhistorymonth #MLK #blackglory #community #cityyearla @cityyearla

Recipe: - Put the tofu on a plate. - Put another plate on top and weight it (a 28-ounce can of tomatoes works well) to press the excess moisture out of the tofu. - Let sit for at least 20 minutes. - Drain away the liquid and cut the tofu into ½-inch cubes. - Put the tofu and 2 cups of the barbecue sauce in a large bowl and toss gently until the tofu is evenly coated. - Transfer all the contents of the bowl to a ziplock bag and refrigerate overnight. - Remove the tofu from the refrigerator and let it warm to room temperature. - Put the potatoes in a small saucepan, add water to cover and bring to a boil over high heat. - Decrease the heat to medium-low, cover and cook until just fork-tender, 8 to 10 minutes. - Drain and let cool. - Prepare a medium‑high grill. While the grill is heating, put the oil, lemon juice, garlic, salt and cayenne in a large bowl and whisk to combine. - Add the potatoes, eggplant, green and red bell peppers, and onion and toss gently until evenly coated. - Next, thread the tofu and vegetables onto 10 metal skewers, distributing them evenly among the skewers. - Put the remaining 3 cups barbecue sauce in a small saucepan and add any sauce remaining in the ziplock bag. - Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring frequently, and continue cooking for about 1 minute. - Transfer to a serving bowl. - Brush the grill grate with oil. - Put the kebabs on the grill and cook, turning frequently, until the tofu is lightly charred and the vegetables are fork-tender, about 8 minutes. - Serve with the hot barbecue sauce alongside. https://www.bet.com/style/health-and-wellness/photos/2014/04/afro-vegan-african-caribbean-southern-flavors-remixed-recipes.html #vegetabletofukababs #kababrecipe #pomegranatepeachbarbecuesauce #afrovegan #bryantterry #africancuisine #caribbeancuisine #soulfood #americansoutherncuisine #veganrecipe #whatveganseat #leslieconninspired #duronchavisinspired #blackhistorymonth #bettv #danielfastcompliant #danielfastforlent #maindishrecipe
