Yo @scotty_skratches I'll admit It this one is Over the top, even for me #apacheskratchchallange I just couldn't let it go! I started thinking of all the great songs inspired by Apache & I ended up getting inspired myself  @djmydera if you want to go a step further down the rabbit hole take a listen to this. Starts with the Original Apache ~ The Shadows and ends at Master P ? This mix also has more left turns than round-about! However these are all of my favorite tracks that sampled Apache, I'm sure there's some more out there. As michael buble would say, I just haven't met you yet! But that's my favorite thing about music there's so damn much of it!  #djtjrb3 #ddjs1 #hiphop #musicpower #musiclover #apache #breakbeat #knowyourhistory #themoreyouknow
Black History - Day 22: Florence Beatrice Price (1887 - 1953): Classical composer and pianist. She was the first African-American woman composer whose work was performed by a leading US orchestra.โ € โ € Price learned how to play piano as a child, gave her first piano performance at the age of 4 and was a published composer by the age of 14. She eventually settled in Chicago, working odd jobs and writing music, and by the end of the 1920s, she made some headway as her songs were being published. In 1933, her award-winning "Symphony in E Minor" was performed by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, making her the first African American woman to have her work performed by a major orchestra. In a professional career spanning several decades, Price created more than 300 compositions and was on of the first African-American woman to be recognized as a symphonic composer. #blackhistory #blackhistorymonth #knowyourhistory ๐Ÿ“š #florenceprice

Day 22 Celebrating #blackhistorymonth  Annie Minerva Turnbo Malone August 9, 1869—May 10, 1957  Annie was an African-American  businesswoman, educator, inventor, activist, and philanthropist.  Malone became the 1st black female self-made millionaire, one of the leading cosmetic entrepreneur's, and a leader in the St. Louis Black community.  Born in Metropolis, Illinois, Annie was the tenth of eleven children born to Robert and Isabella Turnbo. Her parents died when she was young, and an older sister raised her. Annie attended high school in Peoria, Illinois. Though she did not graduate, she did discover she was good at chemistry.  Malone moved to Brooklyn, Illinois, around the turn of the century, and developed hair products focusing on African-Americans hair. One of her bestselling product was named “Wonderful Hair Grower.” She also developed and patented a pressing comb, which is still in use today.  In 1902, she moved her business to St. Louis, MO as the city prepared for the 1904 World’s Fair. She hired a couple of agents and began selling her products door-to-door. She later trademarked her products under the name "Poro." One of her protégés was Sarah Breedlove, aka #madamcjwalker who worked as a "Poro Agent" for about one year. Annie launched her hair care business four years prior to Sarah Breedlove opened her own company.  In 1918, Poro College’s success allowed her to build a 4 story, beauty school complex in the Black neighborhood of "The Ville," in St. Louis. It employed over 175 people and enabled Black women to pursue their high school and college educations by providing them with jobs and lodging. Famous musician Chuck Berry was once a student at Poro. I know so much about this history because our family member Anthony Overton mentored Annie Malone.  She served as President of the Board of Directors for the St. Louis Colored Orphans’ Home from 1919 to 1943. Thanks to her generosity the Home moved to a permanent location in 1922 to

“Master Chief Boatswain’s Mate Carl Brasheargrew up on a farm in Kentucky as part of a sharecropper family. After being educated in segregated schools, he enlisted in the U.S. Navy in 1948 and underwent recruit training at Great Lakes, IL. After initial duty as a steward, he began handling aircraft for squadron VX-1 at Key West, FL, and was subsequently rated as a boatswain's mate. He served on the escort carriers Palau (CVE-122) and Tripoli (CVE-64) and began taking training in salvage diving. In 1954, Brashear completed U.S. Navy Diving & Salvage training becoming the first African-American to attend and graduate from the school and the first African-American U.S. Navy diver. Other duties were on USS Opportune (ARS-41); Naval Air Station Quonset Point, where he escorted President Dwight Eisenhower; Ship Repair Facility Guam; Deep-Sea Diving School; the submarine tender Nereus (AS-17), and Fleet Training Center Pearl Harbor. He also had temporary duty with Joint Task Force Eight for nuclear tests in the Pacific. He served on USS Coucal (ASR-8), USS Shakori (ATF-162), and USS Hoist (ARS-40). While on board the latter in 1966 for the recovery of a nuclear weapon off Spain, Brashear was badly injured in an accident. As a result, surgeons amputated his left leg below the knee. He refused to submit to the medical survey board’s attempt to retire him as unfit for duty. After demonstrating that he could still dive and perform his other duties, he was assigned to Harbor Clearance Unit 2, Naval Air Station Norfolk, Experimental Diving Unit, the submarine tender Hunley (AS-31); USS Recovery(ARS-43), Naval Safety Center; and Shore Intermediate Maintenance Activity Norfolk. In 1970, as an amputee, he qualified as the first African-American master diver in the history of the U.S. Navy.”-history.navy.mil #blackhistorymonth #africanamericanhistorymonth #knowthehistory #knowyourhistory #americanhistory #blackexcellence #usnavy #navyseal #masterdiver

George Ray's (1890) mugshot sure is rare in that the prisoner is smiling. Not only did most arrestees have little to smile about the length of time it took for exposure to develop made it even less likely someone recently locked up would smile so either he really wanted to make sure he was smileing  in it or he was shit faced  crazy weird I'd number is weird seems like it's almost drived into his head

Here are some men at the entrance of great pyramid of giza there wasnt a date with photo so I'm gonna assume 18 to 19th century if someone knows date on here tell me I couldn't find it
This photo was a popular one back in the 50s. It seems as if a man is going on a detached roller coaster or something, but what is really going on is a  prisoner is being used to test safety nets before it proceeded to mass produce the photo was taken in (1958) where capital punishment was practically everywhere in the United States so they thought why nig use them as lab rats for testing new things out kinda sick if ask me
In this  image we have  Swedish airline stewardess, Brigitta Lindman, who worked for the SAS Airline, is having a closer look at the length of a showgirl’s outfit after rumors spread that airlines were considering skirts with shorter hemlines for Swedish air hostesses in (1959) but considering how cold it get in Sweden and in the aircraft think they would rather wear what Brigitta is
This beautiful portrait taken by photographer Francisco Van Camp in the late 19th century shows a beautiful young woman wearing traditional garments. Very little is known about her–only that she was a “Mestiza de Sangley” woman, a term that originates from the Spanish Philippines.The e term “Sangley mestizo”, or Chinese mestizo, originating in the Spanish Colonial Period during the 16th-19th centuries, was used to describe people of Chinese ancestry. Dutch photographer Francisco Van Camp took this photo in his studio in Manilla  in (1875)but unfortunately, the woman’s identity is unknown, though some regard her as the “Mona Lisa” of the Pacific Islands. Sure sure was beautiful just like filpinos today
9 months before Rosa Parks refused to move from her seat, 15 year old Claudette  Colvin refused to give up her seat to a white woman on a crowded segregated bus. She also became a plaintiff in the court case Browder vs. Montgomery, which ended up ruling that the segregated bus system was unconstitutional!  She was just 15 years old when she made that decision. Standing up for what's right may not be easy, but it's worth it. And it matters.  #blackhistorymonth #blacklivesmatters #blackvoices #blacklivesmatter #knowyourhistory #knowyourworth #blackquotes #blackhistory #blackhistoryfacts #blackhistorymatters

Thank you @nfmeyer20 for sharing how he is #healingthroughhistory! . . “I had the honor of organizing alongside @gregakili with @stopcorporateabuse, challenging corporate control of water. From D.C. congressional offices to Milwaukee coffee shops to the streets of Lagos, Nigeria, there was no moment alongside Akili where I was not learning more deeply what it means to be an effective changemaker and relationship builder. He wears a lapel pin of Malcom X's US postal stamp, because he never thought he'd see the day this giant of history would be honored publicly like that in this country. The world we envision for the future may seem ambitious, but it is possible. When things get tough, Akili always asks: ‘What is at stake? What would the world look like if we were not here showing up?’ The answers to those questions continue to push me to fight for people and communities struggling against injustices of any kind -- a commitment that I carry proudly into my medical career.” . . #blackhistorymatters #blackhistorymonth #knowyourhistory
#wakanda #womenwarriors was real! Born in 1844 in Abomey, Béhanzin was the eleventh king of Dahomey from 1889 to 1894. His name, Kondo, was changed to Béhanzin after he succeeded to his father Glèlè. His personal symbols were the shark, the egg, and two coconut palm trees - It is important to note that the words Behanzin & Dahomey are both westernized versions of Gbè han zin = life holds an egg or the egg of the world, and Dan xo min = in the belly of the snake. It can also be linked to the egg of the universe called Aki Ngoss by the Fang people of Gabon. Béhanzin chose the shark as totemic animal and took as motto “the angry shark comes to trouble the helm” illustrating his willingness to defend his ancestors’ land against the French.  Under Béhanzin reign, Dahomey was one of the most powerful kingdoms of West Africa, deriving its power mostly from trade but also from its army which was one of the strongest and best-organized in the region. This army included the famous Amazons, also known as Ahosi or N’nonmiton (our mothers) in fon. They were his bodyguards and he was always surrounded by them during his expeditions.  Béhanzin was known for his great love for the freedom of his country, the protection of his culture which led him to courageously and fiercely defend the land of his ancestors. โœŠ๐Ÿฟ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ฏ๐ŸŒ . #repost @africax5 with @get_repost ใƒปใƒปใƒป . #thekraalhistory Via @the.kraal #knowyourhistory #africa #africanhistory #african #africaneducation #blackhistory #blackconsciousness #blackexcllence #africa #staywoke #melanin #melanated #panafrican #africragram #benin #behanzin #king #vodun #queenrebel777 #godblesstheworld #godblessafrica

The African Burial Ground located in Manhattan is the oldest and largest known excavated burial ground in North America for both free and enslaved Africans. It protects the historic role slavery played in building New York City. The site honors both the spirit of those buried here and those who fought for the respectful protection of this site for this and future generations.
The Gullah Geechee people of South Carolina, and parts of Georgia have held on to many African Traditions passed downed from their enslaved African ancestors. Their culture is rich in spirit and bonds them to their roots. #blackhistorymonth #365blackhistory #knowyourhistory

In 1312 Musa I of Mali, or Mansa Musa became the tenth emperor of the West African Mali Empire. Being a devout Muslim, Musa voyaged to Mecca for his Hajj pilgrimage in 1324, accompanied by an enormous convoy. On his way, Musa passed through Cairo, Egypt where he was strongly urged to meet the Egyptian ruler al-Malik al-Nasir. After some reluctance, Musa met with the fellow monarch who came to offer lodging to him and his entire company. In return, Musa gave away a tremendous amount of gold to the people of Egypt. Unfortunately this kind gesture depreciated the value of metal, and stifled the Egyptian economy for 12 years. . . Mansa Musa reigned for 25 years, and is recognized as the richest man in history. . . #blackhistory #blackhistorymonth #blackgreatness #blackexcellence #mansamusa #mali #maliempire #westafrica #emperor #blackkings #blackqueens #gold #egypt #cairo #wealth #wealthy #blackwealth #gooddeeds #mecca #africa #day20 #africanwealth #knowyourhistory #wearekings #wearequeens #melanoidpeople #peopleofthesun #themotherland #ancientafrica #mamaafrica

In honor of Black History month ๐Ÿ–ค we’ll be highlighting fellow Queens ๐Ÿ‘‘ who have changed the game for us. Today in light of #femininefridays we’ll be talking about one my personal favorites, Madam Cj Walker ๐Ÿ’œ. This Queen ๐Ÿ‘‘ has been such an inspiration to me since a child I remember always doing my book reports on her. She is actually my whole inspiration behind starting my own line of products. Madam C. J. Walker was lauded as “the first black woman millionaire in America” for her successful line of hair care products. Born Sarah Breedlove and working for a hair care company that didn’t cater to the needs of African American women. Sarah developed the “Walker system” and sold her homemade products directly to black women. The method of beauty culture she developed revolutionized black hair care. The combination of scalp preparation, application of lotions, and use of iron combs became known as the “Walker system.” She distinguished her products from the hair straighteners advocated by white cosmetic firms, arguing that her treatment was geared to the special health needs of blacks. She sold her homemade products directly to black women, using a personal approach that won her customers and eventually a fleet of loyal saleswomen. Madam CJ Walker was considered the wealthiest African-American businesswoman and wealthiest self made woman in America at the time of her death in 1919. Thank you MADAM CJ WALKER for being a HUGE inspiration to the Be You Beauty brand! ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ‘‘
"It's important to remember just what she did contribute. She made biologists think totally different about the ways cells develop for all of the different tissues. The experiments that led to her birth are one of the things that are making people think very differently about how to produce cells to treat Parkinson's disease and other unpleasant diseases." --Ian Wilmut, leader of the team that created Dolly, concerning the issue of her death. . . . #truthserum #truthserumtoday #becausetodaymatters #todaymatters #whytodaymatters #history #photooftheday #tbt #iconic #knowyourhistory #onthisday #todayinhistory #thetruth #truth #dollythesheep #genetics #clone #clonedmammal #dna #science

Outside of #mueller indictments, Friday’s are usually tame…this Friday is proving to be very newsworthy but it seems to be a race between who’s taking the bigger “L” today guys named “Robert” or the city of “Chicago”… 1.Musician Rkelly has been charged with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse with allegedly ANOTHER video tape of him raping a 14yr old girl (statutory). Hopefully this time the city of Chicago does the right thing and put him under the jail along with his “genius” that people seem to love to defend  2.Robert Kraft, owner of New England Patriots has a warrant out for his arrest for his part in a prostitution/human trafficking sting OP in Florida, which he categorically denies (Bueller?) paying for prostitution is one crime but we don’t think people realize that if he is guilty of this it means  he participated in solicitation knowing the person was being held against their will….prospective black owners get your checkbooks ready. SN: anybody else think it’s a lil weird that just when a prominent #wp turns attention to #cultchaissues boom, they got’eem...hmmm to be continued.  3.Chicago, still dealing with Jussie, now has Rkelly to add to the pile….Who got next?  #blackculture #standforsomething #cultchacritic #allblackeverything #blackfacts #controlwhattheydemand #wearegreat #blackhistory #blackhistorymonth  #knowyourhistory #shareyourhistory #rkelly #chicago #jussie #robertkfraft #roberts #heavynewsday #musicnews #sportsnews #breaking

Marsha P. Johnson was an African-American transgender rights activist. She along with Sylvia Rivera founded Street Transvestite Action Revolutionaries (STAR) in the early 1970s. STAR provided food, clothing, and housing to transgender and non-gender conforming youth in NYC, one of the first organizations to advocate for and support this population. Thank you, Marsha for being a beacon of hope and a helping hand for those when so many turned a blind eye. We salute you for your tireless efforts to raise awareness and advocate for the rights of others. #knowyourhistory #blackhistorymonth #womenofcolor #transwoman #activist #endhomelessness #endaids #alliancehh
