This is all I be trying to tell people but nobody is listening to me 🤔🤨🙄. Y’all keep running that rat race while I keep breaking these mental slavery chains 🧠⛓. Truthfully I have come to the conclusion that it’s easier to be broke and hold your hand out begging for other people’s hard earned money rather then the beggars get up and make a change in their lives that will generate wealth. Honestly what would you rather be, a wealthy person who can buy someone’s knowledge or a broke educated person that is constantly in debt? I never knew of a broke person able to take care of themselves financially but I’ve seen wealthy people take care of themselves and others. I know I’m not paying off no student loans and you better believe that‼️#GetMoney & everything else will fall in place. #Facts ~ #blackwealth #blackbusiness #blackexcellence #blackhistory #blackpower #blackgirlmagic #melanin #blackpride #blackowned #buyblack #supportblackbusiness #blackunity #blacklivesmatter #blackwomen #blackentrepreneurs #blacksuccess #blackkings #blackmen #africanamerican #blackfamily #blackmedia #blackempowerment #blackeconomics #blacklove #blackandproud #blackownedbusiness #blackculture

Last night, the D+P team was out at the Mann’s Voices of Hope event, a celebration of #BlackHistoryMonth ⁠. The event featured amazing performances from the Gesu School, Sister Cities Girlchoir and CAPA 👏
To celebrate Black History Month, we invited journalist Van Lathan to chat with us for our first Real Talks of the semester, hosted by Toronto’s own Matte Babel! There was a ton of great insight on race, success and mental health at the event that left us feeling inspired. 🙌 Check out this recap video for some of our favourite moments, and make sure to register for our next event with Phoebe Robinson on March 7th at the link in bio! . . . . . . #ignite #ignitestudentlife #humber #humbercollege #uofgh #guelphhumber #igniterealtalks #igniteevents #mattebabel #vanlathan #blackhistorymonth #bhm #blackhistory

The Scottsboro Boys were nine black teenagers ages 13 to 20, who were falsely accused in 1931 of raping two white women on a train. An all white jury found the young young men guilty, although the women eventually admitted to lying about the rape. The youngest of the boys was blind, and was born with syphilis... proving the boys could not have raped the women without spreading the disease. The Scottsboro Boys collectively served more than 100 years in prison. Only one of the men survived, after serving several decades in prison to later be exonerated. He died shortly after he was released from prison. (The right of blacks to serve on juries was established by their case.) This post was stolen from Stanley Onuoha. #blackhistorymonth #blackhistory #history #alabama #13
Meet Tia Norfleet, the world’s first black, female NASCAR driver. Tia owes her love of cars and racing to her father, who was also a NASCAR driver, and who encouraged her love for driving at a young age. “He tricked out my Barbie Corvette,” Tia remembers from when she was 5-years-old. “He put a car battery in it, a radio, signal lights, and everything like a working car. And the rest is history.” - - - - #thepowerofyouteens #sisterhood #harlem #empowerment #blackgirlmagic #blackgirlsrock #thefutureisfemale #goals #girlpower #nyc #newyork #nycmoms #poyt #youthempowerment #melaninmagic #blackhistorymonth #blackhistory #girlboss
We need more black teachers who care about our children. We also need parents who overstand they are their children first teachers. Do not depend on the teachers to raise your children that is your job. They are there to help them learn how to use the lesson you teach in life. -------------------------------------------------- @thatsbwhite ・・・ School: Are ya done with the 5th grade shenanigans? 👨🏾‍🏫👩🏼‍🏫👨🏾‍🏫👨🏾‍🏫Thrive in 5: 😈 🍎Sicko Mode..😂 Link for the full video in my bio. -------------------------------------------------- Follow me also @therealremyredd #therealremyredd @colossill (The Black App) #BotherVex (BackUp) #blackinamerica #BlackLivesMatter #BlackHistory #blackhistorymonth #BlackLove #StephCurry #Lebron #Nas #Beyonce #Jayz #KimKardashian #cardib #WillSmith #Worldstar #getthestrap #colinkaepernick #Hiphop #DanielClary #JusticeForDanyeJones #survivingrkelly #grammys #oscars #allstar #nbaallstarweekend #jussiesmollett
So yesterday while I was watching @therealdaytime , @killermike was talking about black businesses and making every Friday “Black Friday”. What he was saying was to go out and support black owned businesses. Well, today, that’s what I decided to do. Instead of going to a nearby place where I live to get new tires, I decided to support a black owned business. The staff was very nice and business was legit and efficient. One man even said “We’re a small business and this is how we make our living so we have to treat you right so you’ll come back.” They’ve been in business for 20 years. I was glad to spend my money with them. So if you’re in the area and need some tires, have a flat or need to get something checked out on your car, visit Renee Tire Shop in Crystal Springs, MS. #beeinspired 🐝✨❤️ #BlackHistory

H A V E Y O U B E E N P R A Y I N G ? ? ? . . . (And some art jokes) . . . “Pray without ceasing.” ‭‭1 Thessalonians‬ ‭5:17‬ . . . When you are in a season of growing (when you are in every season of your life) you have to learn to do what the Bible says and PRAY WITHOUT CEASING. Prayer is what gives God permission to step into your life and your every situation. He is waiting for you to open your mouth and cry out. Stop doing things on your own strength. Allow Him to step in. @arkofwomen @parislesley . . . #arkofwomen #painter #womanartist #arkofwomenmentorship #sophiadawson #sophiadawsonart #blackart #arkofwomen #spiritled #christian #womanofGod #wetpaint #believer #scriptures #proverbs31woman #justavessel #quotes #newwork #newseason #workinprogress #spiritled #spiritledart #inspiredbyGod #usemeohlord #carryme #art #artist #blackart #blackhistorymonth #happyblackhistorymonth #blackhistory
Katherine Johnson is an African American mathematician who helped calculate the trajectory for the Apollo 11 flight to the moon and worked on the Apollo 13 moon mission, in which an explosion occurred and she created a backup plan which led the crew to a safe return to Earth. Our fourth graders are helping prepare for a safe return of the Apollo 13 and are designing a space capsule that the astronauts can safely return back to Earth in. ☺️ Look how they synergize. 😬 #blackhistory #stem #7habits
I'm so sick of people talking about "Black on Black crime." There is no such thing. Even if it was, where does it show in history the statistics of blacks lynching, skinning, castrating each other the way they did us? People commit crime where they cohabitate. It's funny because I don't ever hear the term "white on white" crime from them. The statistics would be through the roof if they don't pet it to where it makes them look good. Also what about them having committed the most crimes against every race. They not going to talk about that though . . . . #melanin #blackgirl #beingblackinamerica #blackbusinessowner #buyblack #politics #blackpride #blackculture #blackpriviledge #problack #blackbusiness #proudtobeblack #ilovebeingblack #blackownedbusiness #unapologeticallyblack #blacknationalism #blackowned #blackunity #blackpower #blackgirlswhoblog #blackisbeautiful #blackfamilies #blackexcellence #blackwoman #education #blackhistory #knowyourself #blackpeople #blackbusiness #frfr #realtalk

Love Field | Black History Month - Happy Black History Month! To celebrate, I’ve edited my favorite film that takes on what America used to be in the 1960s. A white woman desperately tries to help a black man and his younger daughter escape police after he is accused of kidnapping, an obvious act of racial discrimination. Along the tough road, they fall in love and keep his child safe. It’s truly one of my favorite love stories and I totally recommend it. We must never forget what our country used to be, and how inequal and ignorant we all were, and though we haven’t reached equality yet, I’m hoping we will get there some day :) — AC Me — DT @lokitholy @starkiepoo @starm0ra @psychedelicgraphics @rottenquiinn @sxftlokis @infinixyloki @moonshoook — — — — — — #edit #edits #editing #editz #editor #editorials #blackhistorymonth #blackhistory #lovefield #shipedit #cooledit #softedit #cuteedit #equality

Im proud of this beautiful black strong woman in this photo who is my grandmother Lela Williams ❤ Use code: HISTORY20 for 20% off your total purchase until 2.28.19 ❤ My beautiful Nana, so strong, a beautiful soul, 13 kids. I don't know how she did it but she was a super woman. I feel so blessed to be her granddaughter. After she passed I learned she was apart of the Reverse Freedom Rides. My nana was a reverse freedom rider, one of the first black families to get on that bus...she was apart of history and if it wasn't for her getting on that bus I probably wouldn't even be here today ❤ Such a great woman she was and I wish she was still here today to see her beautiful family, and beautiful grandchildren that she has..she has so many she would of been so proud of us ❤ Lela Mae Williams, 36, of Huttig, Ark., and seven of her nine children on arrival in Hyannis, Mass., May 23, 1962. Mrs. Williams said she had been told she would find work in Hyannis as a domestic, babysitter, or laundress, and be able to support her seven sons and two daughters. The Williams family from Arkansas stayed in the North, too. "It was the right thing to do. I thank my mother," said Gloria Williams, who lives in Boston now, within walking distance of her mother and siblings, but was a teenager when her family got off the bus in Hyannis. Her mother, Lela Mae Williams, then 36, brought her nine youngest children from the small town of Huttig, Ark. in May and then sent for her older children Gloria and Betty. All received bus fare from the Little Rock segregationist citizens council. "I didn't know what they were doing," Williams said. "I was terribly young. But my mother decided she was going to make a better life for her children. And she did. #blackhistory #modestgirlz #modestwomen #supportblackbusiness #blackhistorymonth #reversefreedomriders #freedomriders #blackmelanin

This is Will Gank the first promoter from out of Philly to not pay an Artist. This shameful practice has unfortunately caused many shoot outs and stompings, even loss of limbs for some promoters.

In honor of Black History month 🖤 we’ll be highlighting fellow Queens 👑 who have changed the game for us. Today in light of #femininefridays we’ll be talking about one my personal favorites, Madam Cj Walker 💜. This Queen 👑 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! 🤗💜👑

. I WAS ABLE TO CONTRIBUTE TO HOMELESS IN SOUTH AFRICA WITH GREAT CONTRIBUTION FROM FRIENDS @marley_mar_ & @dimples_07 ALONG WITH IDEAS FROM @lmatjekane84 . Please Read ... Please Read . . . "GHETTO MENTALITY" . --- Is Available On All Platform --- . . There's over 30 Billion yes Billion US Dollars being Extorted and Exploited from African countries on a Monthly basis for tax under the former colonial debt program. Definition - we are still paying them for having enslaved us. The European currency has no value and the American Dollar is just a piece of paper but the African Gold and Diamond is what they use to back the strength of their economy, but the money in Africa is valued nothing in exchange to their money. Major Oil, Gold and Diamond Companies that are white owned spend millions each day advertising how deeply poor and corrupted Africa is and show us the worst images of Africa, so we as Black people around the world are discouraged from visiting HOME. Until the mind of the Africans and gold mining companies are owned by the Africans who till the soil day to day, not the governments who sit happily in their parliaments in Europe making decisions on how Africa should be controlled, we will not be free .

We are just 2 days away from the 91st Academy, so it’s no surprise that we wanted to highlight the woman and the work of Hattie McDaniel. Hattie McDaniel made her way into the history books by being the first Black person to win an Academy Award in 1940 for best supporting actress for her role in Gone With The Wind. Though her win was Historic, Hattie still faced many hardships, for at the time of the ceremony, Black people as a whole were not allowed to enter the Hotel’s Restaurant, The Coconut Grove Resturant at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angels, but allotted Hattie the night to enter as a “favor”. At the night of the ceremony Hattie and her escort were forces to sit at a side table nearest a wall to keep the segregation between Blacks and Whites, in fact, the only white person that was able to mingle with her during the night was her Agent William Meiklejohn. Even within her own community Hattie faced criticism for her Portrayal of a house slave, named Mammy, in Gone With The Wind. Feeling as thought Hattie added to the stereotype of “The Black Slave” and thought the only way she was successful in Hollywood is because she didn’t protest against the systems of racism and racial stereotypes. No matter how we may feel about the Mammy character or the Oscars in general, we still wanted to take the time to send up a salute in honor of this talent woman and Actress who used the very little she was given to open doors and pave a way for many other Black Actors to one day also be counted as and Academy Award Winner! Thank you Hattie we speak your name!! #blackhistorymonth #blackhistory365 #blackhistory #americanhero #oscars #oscarwinner #podcast #blackpodcasts #podcastmovement #blackpodcastnetwork #anchorpodcast #applepodcasts #entertainmentblog #spotifypodcasts

I told some war stories in this doc y'all! Like about the time I learned I was "too ethnic" to ever be #MissAmerica , and that moment when the ancestors clearly spoke thru me and crafted the perfect professional clap-back in the face outrageously racist and sexist workplace aggression. ⁣ ⁣ I was really honored to be featured in Jen Holness' new feature documentary, Subjects of Desire. It examines the cultural shift in North American beauty standards towards embracing (or as I feel – appropriating) Black aesthetics and features. ⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣ I know the stories and perspectives shared in the film will resonate with so many women of color and hopefully will be informative for so many others. I can't wait to see the full documentary later this year (pro-tip: @Netflix , @hulu one of you are gonna need to buy this), but for now, I'm sharing clips from the newly released trailer. Enjoy!⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣ #subjectsofdesire #MissBlackAmerica #blackgirlmagic #blackbeauty #blackwomen ⁣⁣⁣⁣#blackhistorymonth #blackfilmmakers #blackhistory #blackculture

At today’s Friday Morning Meeting, Black History Month was celebrated by the Middle School and Upper School. 9th Grade led the assembly beginning with a lesson on the meaning of John Legend’s award-winning song, “Glory.” The boys played clips from the video and asked questions for the audience to consider about the implications of the song’s lyrics. • Then, James Dargan, along with accompanist Amir Farid performed a few songs in tribute to famous black artists including Louis Armstrong, Langston Hughes, and Billie Holiday. • Finally, the Middle School Boys of Color at A-S group led the audience in a fun trivia game highlighting key black historical figures and events. It was a beautiful morning celebrating black culture through music and history. Thank you to the faculty who helped put this morning together including Jaison Spain, Samara Spielberg, Jennifer Vermont-Davis, and Lorenzo Bellard! #AroundAS

The real OG of black history. FRANTZ FUCKING FANON. This dude was the epitome of badass. Born in Martinique (a caribean island that is owned by the French to this day), he became disgusted by colonial rule when the French took over the island government when it fell to Nazi Germamy. He joined the free french army and fought in WWII, returned to the island, got his bachelor's, then went to France to study psychiary and medicine. He had his dissertation on colonial subjugation rejected, but eventually got it published in book form "Black Skin, White Masks". He went to Algeria afterwards, where he was stationed in the war. After seeing the brutalizing methods the French were using to subdue colonial resistance, Fanon resigned from his post, and supported the Algerians with their revolution. During that time he wrote "Wretched of the Earth", which MLK called the black power Bible. Just go read his wiki page. So much good stuff. Here is one of his famous quotes: "Sometimes people hold a core belief that is very strong. When they are  presented with evidence that works against that belief, the new  evidence cannot be accepted. It would create a feeling that is  extremely uncomfortable, called cognitive dissonance. And because it  is so important to protect the core belief, they will rationalize,  ignore and even deny anything that doesn't fit in with the core belief" #blackhistorymonth #blackhistory #revolution
