On this day in Black History....February 16, 1856, Frederick Douglass was elected president of Freedman's Savings and Trust Company. The Freedman's Savings and Trust Company was established as a secure banking institution where Black soldiers could save their money and also to encourage the African-American community to save. 🔺 President Abraham Lincoln signed a law incorporating it on March 3, 1865. On Feb. 16, 1856, Frederick Douglass was elected president of the then-failing bank. Hoping to revive the bank, he donated tens of thousands of dollars of his own money to shore up the declining institution.  #blackhistory365 #bhm2019  #ourhistory #americanhistory  #onthisday #qcadeltas

"The biggest thing to overcome as a photographer and creative in general are the expectations. We often create and release work with the expectation that our art will be received in a certain way. I had to come to terms with the fact that not everyone will love my work and send fire emojis when I post on the gram. Everything is not for everyone. I’m not the most abstract photographer, but my work showcases my range of color and tone." - @primo_supremo Hit the link in his bio to check out his new visual story #darkskyparadise. • • • #mimconnect #minoritiesinmedia #inclusion #diversity #minoritiesconnect #representationmatters #diversitymatters #bhm2019 #blackexcellence

“It is an unparalleled crisis. The system is flawed and not serving the needs of the black male as it should. We are at a crossroads. We have to choose a path. One leads to more incarceration of black males and one leads to meaningful education and opportunity for them.” -Charles Ogletree Jr. - is an American attorney and law professor who is currently the Jesse Climenko Professor at Harvard Law School, the founder of the school's Charles Hamilton Houston Institute.

Marie Van Brittan Brown, Inventor • Marie Van Brittan Brown was the originator of the home security system (U.S. Patent 3,482,037) in 1966, along with her husband Albert Brown, a patent was granted in 1969.  Brown cited the inspiration for her invention as the long time it would take for police to arrive at a house after being called by residents. Brown did not always feel safe when she was home alone at times, because the crime rate had risen in her neighborhood in Queens, New York. Having to answer the door to know who was on the other side was not something Brown liked to do.  Brown's system had a set of four peep-holes and a camera that could slide up and down to look at each one. Anything and everything the camera picked up would appear on a monitor. Also, a resident could unlatch the door by remote control. The system included a device that enabled a homeowner to use a television set to view the person at the door and hear the caller's voice. The home security system that she and her husband invented allowed the monitor to be in a different room, and all of this was possible via a radio controlled wireless system. If the person viewing the images on the monitor did not feel safe they could press a button that would send an alarm to police or security.  She and her husband cited other inventors in their patent, such as Edward D. Phiney and Thomas J. Reardon. Thirteen inventors who came along after Brown have cited her patent, with the latest being in 2013. Even now, over fifty years later, her invention is being used by smaller businesses and living facilities. • • • #blackhistorymonth #bhm2019 #blackwomenmatter #blacklivesmatter #blackhistorymatters #breakingbarriers #inventor #homesecurity #marievanbrittanbrown

People don’t talk much about The Jones Girls, but they did produce songs that became hits for other artists. Their 1979 song, “Who Can I Run To”, was covered by Xscape in 1995. This version would chart #1. The song is #58 on Billboard’s 100 Greatest Girl Group Songs of All Time. In 2005, Faith Evans released her song, “I Don’t Need It”, which sampled The Jones Girls’ 1981 hit, “Nights Over Egypt”. #bhm2019 #singmysong

Y'all, it's BLACK History Month. There is some confusion about this. It was founded by Dr. Carter G. Woodson, the second African to receive his doctorate from Harvard, as Negro History Week for the purpose of us being deliberate about studying the achievements of "the Negro in History." A week in February was chosen because of the birthdays of Frederick Douglass, an abolitionist,  and Abraham Lincoln, because of his begrudging role in our emancipation. President Carter later extended it to the entire month of February. It had nothing to do with it being the shortest month of the year. Nothing.  It is not African- American History Month. It is certainly not American History Month. It is Black History Month because we are deliberately setting aside a time to honor Africans who've made contributions throughout the world. It is to acknowledge and unite us through the connections between us all and the historical impact of Africans in the Americas (not just the USA), Europe, Asia, and of course throughout Africa.  It is a month to unify and bolster the confidence we need to push through the remainder of the year. Stop participating in your own erasure for a false sense of inclusion. Stop dividing us from our brothers and sisters throughout the Diaspora. We will never be more American than African. The system will always remind us of that. Those of us who are American residents, know that we too are America. Langston told us so. But, this month, this month is about the African, those displaced here in the Americas (North, South, Central) and those back home.  Let's know at least this.  #blackgirlspeaks #andhealingbegins #history #culturalcurriculum #thisiswhy #raisingimhotep #cultivatingthegenius #imanigenius #knowthyself #bethyself #nurturethyself #books #reading #365black #blackhistorymonth #black365 #bhm2019 #blackhistory
(Repost Saturdays) Clara McBride Hale (April 1, 1905 – December 18, 1992), also known as Mother Hale. In 1938, her husband died from cancer, and Hale struggled to support her children through the Great Depression. She stayed home with her children and in order to be as big a part of their lives as possible, Hale opened her own home daycare, keeping children while their parents worked. The children found her home to be such a caring and loving environment they did not want to go home at the end of the day, most began to stay full-time only seeing their mothers on the weekend. Her care supported struggling parents which later led her to become a foster parent. In the 1940s, she provided short-term and long-term care for community children in her home. She would be known as an American humanitarian who founded the Hale House Center, a home for unwanted children and children who were born addicted to drugs. #bhm2017 #blackherstory #humanitarian #bhm2019 #biggie #christopherwallace #halehouse #clarahale
John Arthur Johnson (March 31, 1878 – June 10, 1946), nicknamed the Galveston Giant, was an American boxer who, at the height of the Jim Crow era, became the first African American world heavyweight boxing champion (1908–1915). Among the period's most dominant champions, Johnson remains a boxing legend, with his 1910 fight against James J. Jeffries dubbed the "fight of the century". According to filmmaker Ken Burns, "for more than thirteen years, Jack Johnson was the most famous and the most notorious African-American on Earth". Transcending boxing, he became part of the culture and the history of racism in America. In 1912, Johnson opened a successful and luxurious "black and tan" (desegregated) restaurant and nightclub, which in part was run by his wife, a white woman. Major newspapers of the time soon claimed that Johnson was attacked by the government only after he became famous as a black man married to a white woman, and was linked to other white women. Johnson was arrested on charges of violating the Mann Act—forbidding one to transport a woman across state lines for "immoral purposes"—a racially motivated charge that embroiled him in controversy for his relationships, including marriages, with white women.There were also allegations of domestic violence. Sentenced to a year in prison, Johnson fled the country and fought boxing matches abroad for seven years until 1920 when he served his sentence at the federal penitentiary at Leavenworth. Johnson was posthumously pardoned by President Donald Trump in May 2018, 105 years after his conviction. Johnson continued taking paying fights for many years, and operated several other businesses, including lucrative endorsement deals. Johnson died in a car crash on June 10, 1946, at the age of 68. He is buried at Graceland Cemetery in Chicago. #bhm2019
Day 16- Marsha P. Johnson  Marsha P. Johnson was an African-American transgender women who was an LGBTQ rights activist and an outspoken advocate for trans people of color. Johnson spearheaded the Stonewall uprising in 1969 and along with Sylvia Rivera, she later established the Street Transvestite (now Transgender) Action Revolutionaries (STAR), a group committed to helping homeless transgender youth in NYC.  On June 28, 1969 at the Stonewall Inn on Christopher Street, things turned violent after a few LGBTQ people were arrested on questionable charges, handcuffed, and very publicly forced into police cars on the streets of NYC. The LGBTQ community was fed up with being targeted by the police and seeing these public arrests incited rioting that spilled over into the neighboring streets and lasted several days. These events have been collectively described as a “riot,” a “rebellion,” a “protest,” and an “uprising.” Whatever the label, this was certainly a watershed moment in LGBT history. Many eyewitnesses have identified Marsha as one of the main instigators of the uprising and thus, some have recognized her as the vanguard of the gay liberation movement in the US.  As an African-American trans woman, Marsha  has consistently been overlooked both as a participant in the Stonewall uprising and more generally, LGBTQ activism. As the broader gay and lesbian movement shifted toward leadership from white cisgender men and women, trans people of color were swept to the outskirts of the movement. Despite this, following the events at Stonewall, Johnson and her friend Sylvia Rivera co-founded the Street Transvestite Action Revolutionaries (STAR) and they became fixtures in the community.  An eccentric woman known for her outlandish hats and glamorous jewelry, she was fearless and bold. Despite her difficulties with mental illness and numerous police encounters, whenever she was asked what the “P” in her name stood for and when people pried about her
#vees28daysofblackhistory  Day 16: Eula Johnson  A native of Statenville Georgia, Eula Johnson came to Fort Lauderdale in 1935. Dealing with the extreme prejudices in Ga, the segregation issues in Lauderdale wasn't new for her, she quickly joined the fight against the Jim Crow laws. In 1961, she, along with Dr. Von Mizell and a group of black students from Dillard High school became the first black folks to wade in the segregated waters to Fort Lauderdale beach. A well known community activist, Eula Johnson was also a well respected entrepreneur,she owned a small grocery store and two gas stations on Sistrunk Blvd. A courageous leader who didn't back down from anyone, facing death threats and even being physically assaulted by white folks, her consistency kept her moving forward knowing that justice had to be served. Additionally, she became the first woman president of the Fort Lauderdale NAACP and had streets, her home being a site dedicated to her and a state park being named after her. Eula Johnson dedicated her life towards bettering her people, she passed away at the age of 94.  #bhm2019 #myfavoriteholiday #all28days #increase #moderndayfannielou Research by historian @Blackbroward

While working for the #defender in Washington, D.C. he first appeared on radio, writing and performing comic sketches on station #wcap. He returned to Chicago in 1926 and developed a proposal for a new show, The All-Negro Hour, which premiered on WSBC on November 3, 1929. The show was initially broadcast on a weekly basis, and contained live music and comedy sketches, but Cooper gradually modified and expanded its content.  It became successful with both listeners and commercial sponsors and continued until 1936. He was one of the #first, if not the first, to broadcast gramophone records, including gospel music and jazz, using his own phonograph. In 1938, he created a new show, Search for Missing Persons, designed to reunite listeners with family members who they had lost contact with.

She was known as “Chatty Hattie,” to an integrated Charlotte audience during her years as the #toprated disc jockey at WGIV. Leeper’s interest in radio began at an early age. By the time she was fifteen, she was an errand girl for the DJ’s at radio station WGIV. One day, one of the DJ’s showed up drunk. Leeper had to stand in for the DJ and that is how her career first got started, playing records on the air. Initially, Leeper was afraid to speak much between the
Alice Allison Dunnigan was the first African-American female correspondent to receive White House credentials, and the first black female member of the Senate and House of Representatives press galleries. Dunnigan was born in 1906 in Logan County, Kentucky. Her grandparents had been slaves. She likely obtained her strong work ethic from stories about her grandparents and from her father, a sharecropper, and her mother, a washwoman. Her desire to write seemed to have come naturally. When still a girl, she wrote pieces for the “Owensboro Enterprise,” a black newspaper. After graduating from Knob City High School, she attended Kentucky Normal and Industrial Institute in Frankfort (now Kentucky State University) and trained to be a teacher. She taught for a time in local schools, but her true desire was to write.  She found outlets for her passion with black newspapers in Kentucky including the “Louisville Defender.” When she moved to Washington D.C. to take a job with the U.S. Department of Labor, however, her opportunities increased. In Washington, she became a reporter for the Associated Negro Press and was the first black woman elected to the Women’s National Press Club. She once stated, “Race and sex were twin strikes against me. I’m not sure which was the hardest to break down.” Dunnigan covered the 1948 presidential campaign of Harry Truman and wrote extensively about the early civil rights efforts to desegregate and provide equal opportunity for businesses in Washington, D.C. In the 1960s, Dunnigan served on the President’s Committee on Equal Opportunity under presidents Kennedy and Johnson. She published her autobiography, “A Black Woman’s Experience: From Schoolhouse to White House,” in 1974, and followed with “The Fascinating Story of Black Kentuckians,” in 1982. That year she was also inducted into the Kentucky Journalism Hall of Fame.  Alice Dunnigan died in 1983, but the story of her rise from humble beginnings to great

#natural #hair as been a challenge for blacks for many decades. From having it during #slavery for lack of ability to manipulate hair, to #fighting for its acceptance from the 1960s until now. An #afro is the least amount of effort taken to manipulate and manicure the tightly textured natural hair.  The #civil #rights #movement was such a positive impact on the #black natural hair movement. “The Civil Rights Movement sparked a change in the way Blacks viewed their hair and themselves. The movement was a catalyst for Blacks to embrace who they were were naturally including their hair texture. In the [Black] community, there was a renewed appreciation for the Black aesthetic resulting in the popular phrase “Black is #beautiful”.” “The afro became a powerful #political symbol that reflected the pride one had in their African ancestry. No longer were Blacks attempting to assimilate. Prominent #civil #rights activist, #angela #davis ... rocked a picked out ‘fro which led many women to follow in her footsteps.

Wangari Maathai (1940-2011) The first black woman to be awarded the Nobel peace prize. Her work was at first unwelcome even in her own country, however, Maathai never stayed quiet and never stuck to her "gender role". Founder of the Green belt movement, an effort to slow the process of deforestation by planting trees. The idea caught on and similar projects began in other African countries. In addition to all this Maathai was also a human rights activist, eventually elected to assistant minister of environment she went on to publish many books.  #dailyblackhero #africa #trees #blackhistorymonth #bhm2019 #wangarimaathai #kenya #nairobi #kenya #nobelpeaceprize #enviromentalist #peace #equalrights #equality #illustration #artwork #portrait #pencildrawing #pen #digitalart #woman #strong #deforestation #grow #happy #blackisbeautiful

Bathing myself in the literature and poetry of Black Women was essential to sustaining my self esteem on the predominantly white campus of Eastern Illinois University where I studied English and African American Studies in the 90’s. “Phenomenal Woman, that’s me.” The poetic refrain, said quietly in my head and mostly when I wasn’t feeling so phenomenal was like a B12 shot on a cold rainy day after you’d been up too late crying the night before.  Being a phenomenal woman meant that I would ignore the misogynistic and bigoted advice of my aging white male English professor who, after praising my writing, suggested that I become a secretary after graduation instead of perusing an advanced degree. I am so grateful that I had poems like this to teach me and remind me of who I am. Read Maya Angelou’s full poem here: https://bit.ly/2zuW9oa #teachnbinspired #bhm2019 #bhm

Seems like there are a lot of Ls being caught. They say da Bots are getting most pairs. Could they are using faster computers? Check today's African American History fact:  Dr. Philip Emeagwali (top), who has been called the "Bill Gates of Africa," was born in Nigeria in 1954. The noted black inventor received acclaim based, at least in part, on his study of nature, specifically bees. Emeagwali saw an inherent efficiency in the way bees construct and work with honeycomb and determined computers that emulate this process could be the most efficient and powerful. In 1989, emulating the bees' honeycomb construction, Emeagwali used 65,000 processors to invent the world's fastest computer, which performs computations at 3.1 billion calculations per second.  Mark Dean (Pictured at bottom) is a computerscientist and engineer who helped develop a number of landmark technologies for IBM, including the color PC monitor and the first gigahertz chip. He holds three of the company's original nine patents.  Socks 🧦 for sell, DM me to purchase.

I’ve always had a challenge with the “#black #experience” either I didn’t experience it, or it really only applied to the #city I was in. So what is truly a black experience? #hair! No matter where I go, #tightly #textured men and women have had quite similar experiences with hair and the acceptance in the world we live in today. As my hair #journey is still going, I will share my journey and those who have changed the hair game for #black men and women. 6 years of growth me!! The questions has always been for me, how can I keep my natural hair, let it grow, but not utilize the weight and thickness of traditional locs (which are also amazing!!)? #day15of28 #sisterlocks™️ rose to fame in 1993, by founder, Dr. JoAnne Cornwell.

Today, I recognize & honor the 5 black women who served as Shelby County Commissioners before me. Only 6 of us have served in the almost 60 years the Commission has been a body, in a county that is majority black and 50% women. As the only black woman on the commission, this work can be isolating and fighting the numerous aggressions thrown our way can be tiring. But I stand on some very broad shoulders and because they did so do I. The fruits of their labor are the movement we see today with historical numbers of black women elected across Shelby County. Thank you Minerva Johnican, Bridget Chisholm, Deidre Malone, Edith Moore & Henri Brooks. You are Black History. You are the originators of Black Girl Magic in Shelby County. #blackhistorymonth #bhm2019 #becauseofthemwecan #blackgirlmagic @deidre_malone @edithamoore

She won for the three books of her Broken Earth series. Jemisin was born in Iowa City, Iowa, and grew up in New York City and Mobile, Alabama. Jemisin attended Tulane University where she received a B.S. in psychology in 1994. She went on to study counseling and earn her Master of Education from the University of Maryland. She has won a steady stream of awards since 2006, including several Hugo and Nebula awards. She’s not afraid to use her platform, either. During her delivery of the Guest of Honour speech at the 2013 Continuum in Australia, Jemisin pointed out that 10% of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America (SFWA) membership voted for alt-right writer Theodore Beale (also known as Vox Day) in his bid for the SFWA presidential position, and noted that silence about these issues was the same as enabling them. To learn more about Ms. Jemisin you can find many written and recorded interviews on line of her. And make sure to click the Wikipedia link in bio. Happy 15th day of Black History Month! #bhm2019
John changed my life when he came to Dartmouth College my sophomore year.  He was part of the American Theater Festival, a collaboration between Junebug, Travelling Jewish Theater & Appalshop. I was about to quit my Theater Major out of frustration with the curriculum & the realisation that I was not cut out to be an actor. But conversations with John,Steve Kent (RIP) and of course, watching the collaborations every night made me realise that my own story, told as a solo artist, was “real Theater” too.  To meet him again years later at an Alternate ROOTS Annual Meeting was an honour, and I realised what a giant I had been privileged to spend time with as a young student.  Junebug & Free Southern Theater are massive legacies to the genre. We lost someone great last night. Rest in power & art, John. And as long as we honour you with storytelling & activism, you will never be gone.  #bhm2019 #alternateroots #workingartist #solotheater

In 1959 Dandridge was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Porgy and Bess. She is the subject of the 1999 HBO biographical film, Introducing Dorothy Dandridge. She has been recognized with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The origin of calling the police “pigs” dates back to 20th century Britain and re-emerged during the Civil Rights Era in the US by Vietnam War Protesters. Not all police were viewed as the enemy of Civil Rights groups. However, how good is a “good officer” if he/she doesn’t confront their comrade when they notice them practicing foul measures  The Black Panthers began displaying policemen as pigs in their newspaper. It was a form of intellectual response against the bad policing, the community faced and raised consciousness in the community. The pig is viewed as a filthy animal, who will roll in mud to achieve its needs. The police, just as the pig embraced foul tactics in the Black community, brutalizing its members.
