A passenger was caught on camera refusing to sit next to a black woman on a Ryanair flight from Barcelona to London, hurling insults at her as other passengers attempted to stop him. Airline staff eventually moved the woman to another seat but never removed the man! @troubleman31 @bet @worldstar @theshaderoom #airtravel #flight #passenger #plane #ryanair #blackwomen #bet #blackentertainment #racism #powerless #williteverend #naacp #boycott #🤬 #😳 #😢 #fuckthisshitimout #ihatehumans

Toured the National African American History Museum today and came across the subject of my book, my guy, Dorie Miller. Needless to say it put a smile on my face, and gave me confirmation that getting his story told is worth it! My book cover designer has really impressed me with his material. I loved it and approved it. This book is getting closer to release!

"The Battle for 2812" is a new book written about one of the oldest black owned construction companies in the United States. The book reveals the fascinating journey of the company growing from two to 100 employees with many celebrating its success and others hating it. Despite an everchanging marketplace, overt racism, recessions and intense competition, Bledsoe has sustained for nearly 50 years. Visit www.Battlefor2812.com to learn more.

99th Anniversary of #spokane #NAACP #calltoaction #timetovote 🇺🇸
Today is the incomparable Paula Kelly's 75th Birthday. She's a dancer, singer, and actress in films, television and theatre. Kelly made her #Broadway debut as Mrs. Veloz in the 1964 musical Something More!, sharing the stage with Barbara Cook. Her other Broadway credits include The Dozens (1969), Paul Sills' Story Theatre (1971), Ovid's Metamorphoses (1971), and Duke Ellington's Sophisticated Ladies (1981) with Gregory Hines and Phyllis Hyman. And my personal favorite role of Ms. Kelly, is as Leggy Peggy in #UptownSaturdayNight . She was hilarious. Kelly performed as guest artist and sometimes assistant choreographer for numerous television musical specials, including "Sammy and Friends" (starring Sammy Davis, Jr.); co-choreographer of the BBC production of Peter Pan, in which she also performed the role of "Tiger-Lily"; #Quinc Jones' TV tribute to Duke Ellington, We Love You Madly; The #RichardPryor Show; and Gene Kelly's New York, New York, in which the two Kellys performed a duet. Kelly performed a dance solo at the 41st #AcademyAwards for the nominated title song from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (1968). She appeared on the #London stage in Sweet Charity opposite dancer and actress Juliet Prowse as "Helene", for which Kelly won the London Variety Award for Best Supporting Actress. She starred in the record-breaking west coast premiere of "Don't Bother Me, I Can't Cope" at the Mark Taper Forum, for which she was awarded the Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle Award, Variety, and the first of three #NAACP Image Awards. Kelly's film credits include the Bob Fosse-directed film Sweet Charity; #Soylen Green; The Spook Who Sat by the Door; The Andromeda Strain; Uptown Saturday Night; Jo Jo Dancer, Your Life Is Calling; Drop Squad; and Once Upon a Time...When We Were Colored. Kelly had a recurring role as Liz Williams on the first season of the sitcom Night Court, for which she received an Emmy Award nomination. Kelly has also guest-starred in a variety of television movies and sitcoms, including Sanford and Son, Kojak, Police Woman, Golden Girls, Good Times, Any Day Now and in the #OprahWinfrey -produced TV mini-series The Women of Brewster Place. #PaulaKelly

About last night. . . Off to the gala! #NAACP #2018freedomfundgala #saturdaynightvibes 💋
HOPE IS. . . Our Future! The youth of your community plays an integral part in the shaping of the future for all of us. They hold the key to shifting the trajectory of our educational, political and economic landscape through their revolutionary thoughts and actions. With proper guidance and support from a more mature community, they can succeed in living out their dreams and hopes to make them a reality which is essential to a change that is so desperately needed. Last night at the Reading Branch NAACP 2018 Freedom Fund Gala a combination of mature leaders was brought together with our youth leaders. We listened to Reggie Shuford open up with a moving speech detailing the struggles our minority population faces and how important it is for each and every one of us to get out and VOTE. Vote for those that align with your values and vote to ensure those values will prevail at all levels of legislation. As I sat with Senator Judy Schwank, candidate for PA State Rep Doug Metcalfe, and City of Reading Mayoral Candidate Annarose Ingarra-Milch, I listened to their wants to provide us with a better City Of Reading, Pennsylvania, a better County of Berks, and a better Pennsylvania. Together we watched our local youth leaders, Janeice Burns and Wesley Butler, be recognized for their community Impact and learned more about their hopes and dreams for the future of the youth following behind them. Additionally, VOICE Up and Mike Reese and countless others were recognized for their contributions and impact to our great community as well. The children are our future and last night reinforced the importance of our vote and our voice. #naacp #2018freedomfundgala #vote #breadthofhope

#Repost @scottwallacepa ・・・ The 67th Annual NAACP Bucks County Banquet was incredible, and I met some passionate students from Bucks County Technical High School who are dedicated to making #PA01 a more diverse and inclusive community.

The Hamer Reports THR: Brother's Gonna Work It Out Civil Rights: The Scottboro Boys Date: March 31, 1931.The Train Ride Place: Riding threw Scottsboro, Al. America was in The Great Depression. It did not discriminate. People of all races were suffering. Many would ride in freight trains, looking for work or trying to ride to more prosperous areas. Despite that, Racism was still dividing. Nine black males, ranging ages 13 to 19 were "hoboing" on a train with some white males. A fight started and the two white males were thrown off the train. In addition the Brother's were falsely accused of raping two white women on the train. They were arrested and faced death sentences from the rape charges. Thier case received international press. At times, both the NAACP and the Communist Party USA, defended them. There were three trials, setting precident all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, twice. In time, the Scottboro Boys would receive pardons. In 2009, Brother Clarence Norris died at age 76. He was the last survivor of the Scottboro Boys. #ScottboroBoys #NAACP #CivilRights #Alabama #BlackHistory #Justice #SupremeCourt #TheHamerReports #THR #BrothersGonnaWorkItOut
I don’t give this man enough credit. The youngest Mayor in the city of Peekskill’s History, The 2nd black Mayor... and a list of accomplishments. A humbling man with his heart in the community. Always a pleasure to be in his company. Sending him success and strength as he spearheads the campaign to get things right around here. ✨ ✨ ✨ #vote #midtermelections #midterms2018 #peekskillny #naacp #peekskillnaacp #youngleaders #themayor #growth #focused #claimingit #maturity #goals #progress #menempowerment #womenempowerment #blackmensmiling #melanin #blackgirlmagic #blackwoman #melaninpoppin #glowup #woc #moc #picoftheday #blackwomenarepoppin #blackmenarekings #communitylove #womensrunningcommunity #lookingforward
⠀ "6. To stop lynching.” 1956 NAACP youth membership card. ⠀ 2nd image: Minister and sharecropper Mose Wright sits with his son Simeon in their home near Money, Mississippi. At 2 a.m. on August 28, 1955, Roy Bryant and his half-brother J. W. Milam abducted Wright’s nephew Emmett Till from the home at gunpoint for allegedly whistling at or flirting with Roy’s wife Carolyn Bryant. 14-year-old Emmett Till’s swollen and mutilated body was found in the Tallahatchie River on August 31, 1955 with a bullet hole in his head and a 75-pound cotton-gin fan tied to his neck with barbed wire. ⠀ #lynching #emmetttill #naacp #civilrights #civilrightsmovement #1950s #equality #jimcrow #blackpower #africanamericanhistory #blackhistory #history #ushistory #photography #discrimination #racism #americanhistory #news #humanrights #change #voteforchange #photojournalism #photographyeveryday #speaktruthtopower #fightthepower #minority #minorities #truth #photographysouls #photographyislife
