Nancy Wilson epitomizes the true #torchsinger -- pure emotional truth that resonates, and stays with you; a high commitment to performance and truly getting lost in a song as you break that 4th wall -- and of course, storytelling, a lost art with most singers nowadays. She's not just giving you some previously unrevealed part of herself. This is spiritual. #blackgirlsaremagic #instagram #insta #websta #webstagram #musicvideo > #Repost @myskincolorisnotacrime (@get_repost ) ・・・ When Did You Leave Heaven 🎤🎶🎶🎵 #RestInPower #NancyWilson #RandB #Soul #Jazz #Pop #Music #BlackExcellence #BlackEntertainment #BlackHistory #BlackEmpowerment #BlackKnowledge #BlackCulture
Swagger #Repost @georgian_diaspora with @get_repost ・・・ “Said he was a Buffalo Soldier Win the war for America; Buffalo soldier, Dreadlock Rasta, Fighting on arrival, fighting for survival; Driven from the mainland to the heart of the Caribbean.” -Buffalo Soldier by Bob Marley (recorded 1978)-– The Buffalo Soldiers of post-war Texas are among the most fascinating and least well known, least celebrated, military heroes. In 1866, the U.S. Congress authorised six regiments of African American troops, two of cavalry, four of infantry, for the U.S. Army. By the 1890s Buffalo Soldiers comprised 20 percent of America’s frontier cavalry and performed exemplary service within the military. The name “Buffalo Soldiers” was said to be respectfully given by Native Americans who said the tightly curled hair of the soldiers reminded them of the curly hair on a buffalo’s fur - whist others, said it was the buffalo fur coats they wore. The Native Americans revered bison, and Buffalo Soldiers proudly featured a bison on their regimental crest. Posing with ease, he leans on a buffalo hide with silver gun on his waist.The buffalo soldier uniform consisted of blue wool, single breasted jacket with gold buttons (yellow facings indicate the coat was worn by a member of the cavalry), wool waist coat, white vest, sky blue wool trousers with yellow side stripe, wool felt hat and white gloves. Bob Marley memorialised their plight by linking his lyrics to injustice the song has since become a symbol of resistance. 1st pic of an unidentified soldier c. 1870-80 2ndpic. Non-commissioned officers from Troop L of the 9th Cavalry, or “Buffalo Soldiers,” are shown at Ft. Wingate, N.M., in c. 1899.

BLACK FRIDAY HEART "Merged in the sea of Emotions I lie to myself Saying I cannot see Whom could I be Blind Foolish, Just lost mentally, But thy heart couldn't swim no more For it drowned at sea I blended below seashore, fish swam by Yet I remaind closed As my soul did fly I opened my eye In the aquarium of love Eye saw beauty That fell from above I became like water Blended so well But my eye knew Love had failed to dwell For my heart dared bargain I wouldn't even sell, Black Friday It was stolen Just given away So the pieces Fall where they may But eye did stay As bubbles rise to the surface As I continue to submerge, They could no longer Carry away, My heart, My child, It was delayed As eye see a return Where things did change A new life Where kidnapping No longer a game So I came through the light Again eye see A man causing new chaos Or old misery But I chose to fight Bring forth my baby As this time it was Not Stolen Nor taken freely It remained And so did the planter Of thy seed Eye saw the warrior In my soul fiery It was ready for war Battle indeed For the soul never Forgets, It only sleeps That this Black Friday Heart, Was set at ease For eye, The soilder Pulled the trigger, One, two three The goddess did arise Black Queen Bee, Using my gift eye Now see, The golden third eye, My reality" (c)2018 Copyright All Rights Reserved By Suzette Campbell aka Queen'Anyah Divine 12/15/18 #wordporn #poetry #poetess #poet #Spirituality #melanin #poetess #poet #Spirituality #instagrampoet #thirdeyepoetry #poetsofig #communityofpoets #poetssociety #blackhistory #blackpoetry #transatlanticslavetrade #consciousness #poemofthenight #poeticjustice #blackfridaypoetry #blackfriday #sellingslaves #poemsfromtheheart #wordplay #wordsmith
“The hardest thing in this world to do is like people for what they are – regardless of the artificial barriers of color and worship,” #civilrights #activist #VirginiaCoffey was born #onthisday in 1904. She came to Cincinnati to teach at Harriet Beecher Stowe, expecting a progressive northern city. Instead she discovered segregation everywhere saying years later that “It was very humiliating to be singled out as a second-class citizen.” She has grown up in a desegregated area so “Separation was a concept that was foreign to me...I couldn’t see any reason for it. It was clear some things needed to change in Cincinnati.” 🙌🏾🙌🏿🙌🏾She then joined the #naacp & devoted her life to desegregating Cincinnati & working towards getting people to treat each other as human beings. 👊🏿 She protested with others, laying down at Coney Island’s gate to pressure the amusement park owners to finally allow African-Americans in ✊🏿✊🏾✊🏿and successfully desegregated neighborhood pools. Coffey became the first woman and first African-American to be executive director of the Cincinnati Human Relations Commission. #shero #herstory #womenmakinghistory #intersectionalfeminism #blacklivesmatter #inspiringwomen #inspirationalwomen #melanin #womenofcolor #womeningovernment #womenwholead #blackwomenleaders #femaleleaders #bravewomen #feministart #watercolorillustration #respect #remarkablewomen #blackpower #blackwomen #blackhistory #blackwomenhistory #blackfemaleactivist

What are you reading? Next time while visiting my family in South Alabama, I’m making a special trip to Africatown community. I’ve been to Mobile a million times and never knew about Africatown until recently. Please go buy Barracoon: The Story of the Last “Black Cargo” by Zora Neale Hurston. She interviewed, Oluale Kossola aka Cudjo Lewis, one of the last survivors of the Atlantic slave trade.

Love and light to Nancy Wilson ... An extraordinary "song stylist" who inspired the vocalist in me 🙏🏾 Nancy Sue Wilson (February 20, 1937 – December 13, 2018) was an American singer whose career spanned over five decades, from the mid–1950s until her retirement in the early–2010s. She was notable for her single "(You Don't Know) How Glad I Am" and her version of the standard "Guess Who I Saw Today". Wilson recorded more than 70 albums and won three Grammy Awards for her work. During her performing career Wilson was labeled a singer of blues, jazz, R&B, pop, and soul, a "consummate actress", and "the complete entertainer". The title she preferred, however, was "song stylist".[1] She received many nicknames including "Sweet Nancy", "The Baby", "Fancy Miss Nancy" and "The Girl With the Honey-Coated Voice". 🌟🙏🏾repost via @instarepost20 from @myskincolorisnotacrime When Did You Leave Heaven 🎤🎶🎶🎵 #RestInPower #NancyWilson #RandB #Soul #Jazz #Pop #Music #BlackExcellence #BlackEntertainment #BlackHistory #BlackEmpowerment #BlackKnowledge #BlackCulture
We don’t pray to Yahawashi nor are we supposed to. We pray to YAHAWAH in the name of Yahawashi. It’s only one power and that’s YAHAWAH. Elder @zabach.kani bringing out the understanding...... Matthew 6:9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. John 5:30 I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me. #yahawahbahashamyahawashi #wakeup #nationofisrael #12Tribes #12tribesofisrael #Judah #Christ #Yahwashi #Yahawah #Hebrews #israelites #blackhistory #king #queen #God #elohom #chosen #realjew #hebrewnation #negro #fakejews #144000 #biblicalisraelites #biblehistory #BlackHistory #jacob #esau #edomite #wypipo #negro
