Built in 19 BCE by Herod the Great. To witness the holiest Jewish site for prayer with my amazing Mamusia was definitely one of the most gratifying and memorable experiences of my life. #westernwall #kotel #jerusalem #israel #polskadziewczyna #worldheritage #beautiful #instagood #culture #instadaily #life #city #explore #instatravel #historic #heritage #amazing #knowyourhistory #bucketlist #wanderlust #worldtraveler #bluesky #beauty #architecture #religion #jewish #geschichte #urlaub #citytrip #epic
Who has heard of redlining? Redlining is the systematic denial of various services to residents of specific, often racially associated, neighborhoods or communities, either directly or through the selective raising of prices. (Wikipedia). I touched on it in this episode as well as many other eye openers. Thoughts? #WBGR #G3 #GETITGOTITGOOD #knowyourhistory #history #redlining #finance #educate #educateyourself #wealth #money

Back to my Scottish roots today. Reviewing my 2GGP’s marriage in Glasgow. So much wonderful detail to gather from just one record; fathers’ names and occupations, addresses and more. I love that Rubina’s father was a handloom weaver. My best advice is to transfer all you learn from these records as you find them and review the information each time you focus on the ancestor. The clues are all there but your focus may not lead you to connect all the dots yet. Time and repeated review will bring you to a rich understanding of their stories.

Today's #motifmonday is a mouthful...or should we say, full of mouths! Some Pecos River Style anthropomorphs have mouths, and these facial attributes are portrayed in a variety of different ways. While you may think that mouths are a normal or typical occurrence on PRS figures, they are actually quite rare! Take a look at the comments below to learn more about this motif.

Margaret Busby (1944-today) Margaret is an extremely influential name in the world of publishing. That's because she was Britain's youngest and first black female book publisher, when she co-founded the publishing company Allison & Busby in 1967, alongside a man called Clive Allison. The company didn't only publish work by black writers, but it did help to make the names of many black writers more well-known. Talking about writing today, Margaret says: "Technology permits you to be your own publisher and editor, which should encourage a lot of us - especially young people - to write and express themselves." "Write because you really enjoy it and learn to be a good reader because the best writers read voraciously. Get to know the best books out there."

The 'Slave Bible' Converted Slaves to Christianity by Omitting Parts That Could Lead to Uprising. A new exhibit at a Washington, D.C. (12-10-18) museum features an abridged version of the Bible sheds light on how Christian missionaries converted enslaved Africans to Christianity by teaching them the Gospel... but leaving or deleing out the parts about freedom, equality and resistance. Its on display at the Museum of the Bible in Washington, D.C., and is one of only three known copies of this abridged version of the King James Bible. Printed by the Missionary Society For the Conversion of Negro Slaves “You’ll see a jump from Genesis 45, and they’ve cut out all the material to Exodus 19,” says Anthony Schmidt, associate curator of Bible and Religion in America at the museum. “What they’ve cut out is the story of the Israelites captivity in Egypt and their eventual liberation and journey to the promised land.” The book is basically the enslavers remix of the King James version of the Bible, leaving out all that unnecessary junk that might lead slaves to turn on their masters. For instance, Moses doesn’t even exist until he is an old man in the “Slave Bible.” #museumofthebible #slavery #slavehistory #blackhistoryfacts #blackhistorymatters #knowyourhistory #blackhistory #blackhistoryisamericanhistory

Yes they still exist.. I wanted one for historical reasons. I know my parents had to use it... our many drives from the west to Louisiana. They shielded me and made it fun ... whilst they stayed on alert. 🚨 . The movie is superb.

On December 10, 1948 - “At a meeting in Paris, the General Assembly of the United Nations (UN) adopts the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The first draft of the declaration was written by Canadian lawyer John Peters Humphrey. In the vote by the 58 member states of the General Assembly, 8 abstained and none dissented. - In early 1947, the Commission on Human Rights authorized a preliminary draft International Bill of Human Rights. A committee of different member states selected with regard for geographical distribution was later tasked with writing a document setting out universal human rights.” - Source: Library & Archives Canada - #Canada #Canadian #History #Historical #HumanRights #Beginnings #UN #Contribution #KnowYourHistory #KnowYourCountry #KnowYourWorld #Peace #Fact #LearnSomethingNewEveryDay #Educate #Learn #School #Homeschool #Interesting

Before the capital of the Mughal empire shifted from Agra to Delhi in 1638, Agra Fort served as the main residence of Mughal rulers and was the location of Emperor Shah Jahan's house arrest after being deposed by his sons. The fort was later conquered by the Marathas and the British, and was notably the site of a battle during the First War of Independence - which is known in the west as the Indian Rebellion of 1857. This in effect ended the British East India Company's control of the region but led to direct rule by the British crown over India for the following century. #knowyourhistory #explorelearnrepeat #unescoworldheritage #agrafort
There are plenty of misconceptions when it comes to Africa. Most of it is ignorance or a deliberate attempt to minimize the continent of Africa. ⠀ ⠀ #madeinghana #ghanaian #idoghana #ghanaphotography #ghanamade #accralife #thisisaccra #knowyourhistory #blackhistory365 #sheabutterproducts #sheabutter #follow_4_follow #followforfollw
