#WomeninBlackHistory . . Mary Jackson, Mathematician; Engineer . . Born in Virginia in 1921, Mary Winston Jackson excelled academically in a time of racial segregation.

Martin Luther King, Jr., was baptized as a child here at Ebenezer Baptist Church. After giving a trial sermon to the congregation here at the age of 19 Martin was ordained as a minister. In 1960 Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. became a co-pastor of Ebenezer with his father, Rev. Martin Luther King, Sr., know as "Daddy" King. He remained in that position until his death in 1968. As a final farewell to his spiritual home Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s funeral was held in this church. #mlk #martinlutherking #corettascottking #americanhistory #blackhistory #blackhistorymonth

For five years, Atsede Nigussiem had been married to Haimanot Kashagi. They have a five year old son. While being married, Haimanot migrated to Yemen. Unannounced, Haimanot returned home and poured a life threatening acid on Atsede’s face. Even after receiving a treatment for two months, Astede is still unable to talk and see clearly. She eats and drinks with a straw and “cries non stop”. Although acid attacks are rare, a story like Astsedes’occured in the past. In fact, in 2007, a 21 year old student had an acid attack by a men who stalked her for four years. In Ethiopia, gender violence and sexual harassment are still prevalent. Despite women being exposed to gender violence and sexual harassment, the government still lacks an effective law that protects young women from gender violence and sexual harassment. Using #MeTooEthiopia , let us fight to prove assault is a crime, not a culture. Let us work together to serve justice for women their presence is acknowledged, but not valued. Sign the petition and be the change you want to see. #MeTooEthiopa #GRLPWR #ethiopia #africa #Metoo #girlsrun #it ’stime #let ’sfight #women #2019 #BlackHistory #HabeshaHistory

These moms are celebrating #BlackHistoryMonth by recreating photos of iconic black women with their daughters. Cristi Jones' 7-year-old daughter Lola of Kent, Washington (pictured first) and Sasha Bonner's 2-year-old daughter Riley of Charlotte, North Carolina (pictured second) have portrayed figures from both past and present, including: abolitionist Sojourner Truth, singer Nina Simone, and former First Lady Michelle Obama. Both Jones (@mskittifatale ) and Bonner (@motherofriley_ ) hope that teaching their children about black women's contributions to American history will serve as inspiration for their current and future goals. 📸 👧🏾#photography #female #girlpower #history #blackhistory #women #blackwomen #blackgirlmagic #shareblackstories #mom #daughter #Brut #BrutAmerica

Repost @hamerreports ・・・ The Hamer Reports THR: Honoring Our Queens Civil Rights: Queen Daisy Lee Gatson Bates Born: November 11, 1914 Died: November 4, 1999 Birthplace: Huttig, Arkansas Queen Bates is one of the most historic figures of the Civil Rights Movement. She was the anchor and cornerstone for the brave students know as the Little Rock Nine. In 1957, the nine students integrated Central High School in Little Rock, AK. Bates prominence in Little Rock was founded in her activism and journalism. In 1941, along with her husband, L.C. Bates, the couple founded the Arkansas State Press. The paper established a reputation of a contributing black-owned newspaper. Daisy was a former state president of the Arkansas state NAACP. Her leadership in the association, allowed her to council and strategize for the Little Rock Nine. In 1958, Brother Ernest Green was the first black student to graduate from Central High School. #DaisyBates #LittleRockNine #NAACP #CentralHighSchool #BlackHistory #TheHamerReports #HonoringOurQueens #THR #Arkansas
#JaGurlTV #ThrowBackThursday by @shivonce_ ____________________________________ #tbt #jagurltv @shivonce_ ———————————————— Today in 1965, American Muslim leader and activist Malcom X was assassinated in Washington Heights, Ny at the Audubon Ballroom . He was born Malcom Little in Omaha Nebraska in 1925 to parents Earl And Louise Little . After the death of his father in 1931 Malcom was taken away from his family and became increasingly involved in criminal activities. In 1946 at the age of 21 Malcom was sent to prison in a burglary conviction. While in prison he encountered the teachings of Elijah Muhammad, the leader of the Nation of Islam , whose members are popularly known as black Muslims. Muhammad’s teaching had a major effect on Malcom which led him into an intense state of self educating and took the last name “X” to symbolize his stolen African identity . • •Follow us for more on @jagurltv • • #BlackHistory #AfricanAmerican #malcomX #muslimleader #blackactivist #blackhistorymonth
Yesterday we had a large group of @CSPLAction leaders come together for what was an exciting and moving monthly Membership Meeting. Fr. Dan Hartnett, SJ led a terrific workshop on how the Ignatian spiritual practice of discernment is a vital resource for reflection, action and prayer in the work for social, racial, economic and environmental justice. He spoke from his experience of 30+ years of community organizing in Peru. Following this our safety and immigration committee leaders spoke about our upcoming actions and legislative meetings. 🔹 Interested in getting involved?

#DearArtist When was the last time you connected with yourself? Really asked yourself, "What do I want? What are my dreams and desires for my life right now?" Take a moment to check in. It is okay if what you want in this season of your life looks different from what you wanted in a past season. It is also okay if what you want is different from what others want for you. You get to decide, so choose. #LoveHustle #winning #wellness #worklifebalance #artistlife #nycartist #dreams #desires #bestlife #ViolaDavis #selflove #Blackhistory #checkingin
Tracy Reese Fashion designer Tracy Reese took her dreams of owning her own company and made them a reality. Her first attempt at entrepreneurship did not go well, and Tracy was forced to shut down her company, only to come back stronger and more profitable after a relaunch in 1996. Now her brands include her Tracy Reese and Plenty fashion lines, and she has expanded into footwear, home collections and nail polish. Reese had a following of working women looking for quality, fun dresses at moderate prices well before Obama wore the designer on the cover of Ebony magazine. But that image, as well as the custom dress Reese created for the first lady's appearance at the 2012 Democratic National Convention, made her a household name.

#TBT to the first time I held my very first copy of my Memoir. Just to see and feel the book in my hand was a surreal feeling. It was an emotionally mixed moment where I didn’t know whether or not to feel happy that it was finally done and I can share it with the world or be sad because the person who inspired me to begin writing it 6 years ago, wasn’t there to share the moment with me, My beloved mother Nicole Pearce. I’m so happy to hear how many people my Memoir has touched so far and I’m so happy that within my book I was very transparent with my story Living with Obstetrical Brachial Plexus Injury. I cannot wait to inspire many more! Thank you all for the continuous love and support on my Journey.

🏊🏽‍♀️ Swimming Pool Work, @abilenestatepark | In 1935, the CCC returned to the park to do more work. The company number remained 1823, but it bore a CV suffix, signifying that the enrollees were all African American veterans. In the intervening year since that company's departure, CCC companies had been segregated. Company 1823(CV) was charged with finishing the work at the park and replacing some of the original design materials. Seen here working on a section behind the diving board, the men have removed the flagstone paving around the pool and are replacing it with concrete. The man standing beside them may be a LEM (local experienced man) whom the CCC hired to teach enrollees craft skills and to provide oversight at construction sites. Note the swimmers prepared to enjoy the newly opened pool. #txstateparks #cccparks #parkitecture #aahm #blackhistory #africanamericanhistory #newdeal #greatdepression #abilenestatepark #tbt
Repost from @ashleythomasiii using @RepostRegramApp - BLACK HISTORY MONTH Day 21 of 28 Heavyweight Champ: Jack Johnson became the first African-American man to hold the World Heavyweight Champion boxing title in 1908. He held onto the belt until 1915. He was convicted in 1913 by an all-white jury for violating the Mann Act -- on charges that he transported a white woman "across state lines for immoral purposes." However, he skipped bail and left the country, only to return in 1920 to turn himself in. He served 10 months of his one-year sentence before being released. Efforts to grant him a presidential pardon began in 2008 with a bill that passed the House of Representatives, but not the Senate. The main reason cited in efforts that continued through other petitions: his conviction was racially motivated -- and the incident for which he was arrested took place before the Mann Act became law. Actor Sylvester Stallone was among those who campaigned in Johnson's favor. In May 2018, Stallone was present at the Oval Office ceremony in which President Trump signed the official pardon. #KnowledgeIsPower #BlackHistory #Boxing #JackJohnson

American Horror Story was hit or miss with me. I genuinely HATED Murder House to the point where I didn't watch Asylum until years later. (Which, might I add, is their most actually horror driven storyline). I think all of the plots could benefit from the kind of character driven insanity that Asylum had. It felt like there was a genuine struggle between the characters to either be taken seriously or to be dominate. I enjoyed it thoroughly! Mix in the outer worldly things they can't control and you get a solid horror piece. . . . . ______________ #happyblackhistorymonth #blackhistorymonth #blackcosplay #cosplaygirl #blackgirlmagic #blackgeek #28daysofblackcosplay #cosplayphotography #blerd #afropunk #blackcosplay #cosplayer #cosplayofcolor #blackhistory #blerdcosplay #bodypositivity #blerd #blerdlife #americanhorrorstory #marielaveau #voodoo #voodoopriestess #louisiana #coven #witchesofinstagram #witchcraft #witch #americanhorrorstorycoven
