#museumofthecityofnewyork exhibition #artinthropen is a survey of Fifty Years of Public Art in NYC. Loved learning more about #rudyshepherd Drawing Cart 2006 which was in a Harlem laundromat. The social dynamics of how art engages a diverse & broad community-based public is articulated so well in such projects. Exhibit on view through May 13, 2018. Kudos to MCNY team and public artists & other professionals. First image is #frederickdouglass

"The soul within me no man can degrade" -Frederick Douglass There's a Frederick Douglas statue in the lobby at school and this quote rings true. It is your soul that drives you. Negative forces may surround you but a strong soul will always overcome and push you to success.

I’m incredibly grateful for a weekend full of joy, sadness, and renewal from God. It’s amazing how God can renew you and restore you. Despite some mental health challenges, God has helped me find and maintain community. Saturday evening I went to my favorite coffee shop Tanners where I saw my friend @docaswad who I often see. He helped me and encouraged me that evening. Thanks for your kindness Doc. God will continue to bless you. Sunday I went to @epicentrewestla my newfound church home. Got to see my lovely @_lcludlow and @simplyshirleyy among others and a good word on praising God for the blessings and not simply looking at what we don’t have. Spent the evening with @tregnier52 And her amazing parents. Today was MLK Day and I spent it with my sista @freshtrisha and my ladies @sirenitarosita @rai.de.soleil. These ladies are working hard and in school! So encouraging! I know God will bless them. Please keep the faith, hope and keep trusting in God. He heals, loves and is always there. Let’s remember to honor our elders, ancestors and those who paved the way. 💜❤️💚💛 #iam #radicalblackwoman #weare #vision #progress #frederickdouglass #harriettubman #sojourner #drking #malcolmx #corettascottking #rosaparks #radicalblackwomen #blackgirlmagic #mentalhealthmatters #blackmentalhealth #suicideprevention #blackgirlsrock #freedomandsoulrecords #iammargueritealexis

I’ve been indoctrinating my young, white daughters to believe that ALL men (PEOPLE) are created equal. It’s working. They cannot fathom why anyone would be treated badly because of the color of their skin. They understand even less the hundreds of years of atrocities people of color have endured...so we read and we watch videos from the Civil Right’s Movement to help us understand. Big Bit’s poster says “We should not be pushed around.”

JUST CONFIRMED!!! “One Voice: A Black History Narrative,” will be coming to Emmanuel Bible Church in Mauldin, SC, on April 4th, 2018! I’m very excited to announce that on this 50th anniversary of #MLKs assassination, we, at #ebcupstate will be bringing Dr. King back to Life with a performance of my Theatre presentation of “One Voice,” for one night only! In just 39years, this man changed the entire world! We honor his legacy in celebration, while we cannot forget his personal sacrifice. April 4th of this year is the 50th memorial of Dr. King’s death, and there’s no better time to join hands as sisters and brothers. Thankful that the elders of my personal local body saw fit to host this experience, and I want you there! Many ask about public performances, and this one will include NEW vignettes! “Like” to stay in the loop about reserving your seat! #mlk #mlkweekend #mauldinsc #mlkweekend2018 #dreamspeech #mlkdayofservice #martinlutherking #jdew #yeahthatgreenville #obama #frederickdouglass #muhammadali #jamesweldonjohnson
#didyouknow #OctaviusCatto (Feb 22, 1839 – Oct 10, 1871) was a #blackeducator , intellectual, and #civilrights #activist in #Philadelphia . He became principal of male students at the Institute for Colored Youth, where he had also been educated. Born free in Charleston, South Carolina, in a prominent mixed-race family, he moved north as a boy with his family. He became educated and served as a teacher, becoming active in civil rights. As a man, he also became known as a top cricket and baseball player in 19th-century Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. #TheCivilWar increased Catto's activism for abolition and equal rights. He joined with #FrederickDouglass and other black leaders to form a Recruitment Committee to sign up #blackmen to fight for the Union and emancipation. After the #Confederate invasion of Pennsylvania in 1863, #Catto helped raise a company of black volunteers for the state's defense; their help, however, was refused by the staff of Major General Darius N. Couch on the grounds that the men were not authorized to fight. (Couch was later corrected by US Secretary of WarEdwin M. Stanton, but not until the aspiring soldiers had returned to Philadelphia.) Acting with Douglass and the Union League, Catto helped raise eleven regiments of United States Colored Troops in the Philadelphia area. These men were sent to the front and many saw action. Catto was commissioned as a major, but did not fight. On Friday, April 21, 1865, at the State House in Philadelphia, Catto presented the regimental flag to Lieutenant Colonel Trippe, commander of the 24th United States Colored Troops. An account of Catto's presentation speech was reported the following day in the Christian Recorder. Catto became a #martyr to #racism , as he was shot and killed in election-day violence in Philadelphia, where ethnic Irish of the #DemocraticParty , which was anti-Reconstruction and had opposed black suffrage, attacked black men to prevent their voting for #Republican candidates. #americanhistory #blackhistory #mlk #payattention

On this Martin Luther King Jr. Day, I remember meeting Kenneth B. Morris, Jr., the great-great-great grandson and great-great grandson of Booker T.

Remembering Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, and many of the groundbreaking civil rights leaders who came before him. Frederick Douglass and Ebenezer Bassett were early pioneers in abolition, civil rights, and international human rights. #mlk #martinlutherking #frederickdouglass #Bassett #diplomat #civilrights #humanrights #diplomacy #film #movie #documentary #DiplomatOfConsequence
As I used to pass by this cemetery to attend a class, these lines of the popular elegy used to come to my mind. . . "Perhaps in this neglected spot is laid Some heart once pregnant with celestial fire; Hands, that the rod of empire might have sway'd, Or walk'd to ecstasy the living lyre." . Thomas Gray, Elegy Written in Country Churchyard . . . . Quick fact for the Civil War aficionados: This is also the place where Mr. Frederick Douglas, one of the most prominent faces of the abolitionist movement in the US, was buried with honor in 1895. . . . . #poetry #poem #winter #snow #fog #white #red #green #trees #literature #frederickdouglass #american #civilwar #rochester #newyork #cemetery #fire #empire
We Must Develop and Maintain The Capacity To Forgive. He Who Is Devoid Of The Power To Forgive Is Devoid Of The Power To Love. There Is Some Good In The Worst Of Us And Some Evil In The Best Of Us. When We Discover This, We Are Less Prone To Hate Our Enemies. ~Martin Luther King~ Happy Birthday Martin Luther King ✊#BlackPower #BlackExcellence #MLKDay #Celebrate #BlackKnowledge #Embrace #Culture #KnowledgeIsPower #StayWoke #History #Activist #BlackEmpowerment #MalcolmX #MLK #Khalidmuhamad #StokelyCarmichael #MarcusGarvey #FrederickDouglass #AngelaDavis #DrHenrickClarke #BobbySeale #Webdobois #BookerTWashington #Drsebi #HueyPNewton #Black #NatTurner
Practicing some modern calligraphy with some quotes from my favourite figures. #EmilyBronte #MaryShelley #GeorgeBernardShaw #FrederickDouglass "You are not judged by the heights to which you have risen but from the depths you have risen"
I’m white. I have privilege because of my skin color. It is that simple. We are not all treated equal, which means that I have an obligation to speak up when I witness injustice. When I have called out racism recently I have been scorned by people who do not want to acknowledge that their statements were racist; maybe socially ostracised by some in my religious community. I still get on well enough every day, but there can be repercussions or “loss of privilege” when white people stand up for marginalized groups. It is hard to find yourself in the cross-hairs of racial hatred, but it feels a lot better than walking away from an event and realizing you can never go back and do it right. Last week I heard an interview with @TaNehisi.Coatess where he discussed the tendency white people have to be unassociated with racism. (But Im okay right? ...because I’m not racist.) His explanation will stick with me. My takeaway: White people can’t get out of it. We are in the mess too, also because of the color of our skin. We are the ones with privilege until things change. The only way out is equality. The only way out is sharing in the discrimination in front of hateful audiences. I do not mean being a #whitesavior . I mean fighting OUR fight to communicate to the bigoted that we are all human, and if you deride them for the color of their skin you deride me and yourself also. The best thing I ever learned was to stop saying “I’m not racist” and start saying “Okay, how am I racist?” I started identifying things I say and do, especially around people of color, that identify how I treat people of color differently. If you aren’t asking yourself that I believe you are still perpetuating systemic/institutionalized racism. Like someone who says, “I don’t feel sick, so why should I wash my hands?" meanwhile they spread the disease. #ihaveadream #mlk #mlkjr #civilrights #mlkday #mlkjrday #civilrightsday #equality #racism #whiteprivilege #lego #legonews #wokelego #legomurals #mountaintopspeech #ivebeentothemountaintop #legomaniac #instalego #legopic #tanehisicoates #frederickdouglass #rosaparks #georgewashingtoncarver #harriettubman #katherinejohnson

In honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Take a minute to learn about some people who paved the way for his movement and often are not talked about as often. History remembers all it is those that live in the present that neglect to learn from the past. #frederickdouglass #claudettecolvin #emmetttill #civilrights #mlk

A King in Kings County. Here’s a thing about MLK and the Brooklyn Church he visited in 1963. Cameos from Jackie Robinson and Sojourner Truth.
