Another gem from my trip to Detroit! The Henry Ford Museum is amazing! They have the Montgomery city bus that ended up sparking the Civil Rights Movement! I sat in the same seat Rosa Parks refused to give up. I feel honored to be able to experience something so meaningful. @thehenryford ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #teachertraveltuesday #americanhero #rosaparks#teacherlife #teachersofig #teachergram #teachersfollowteachers #iteachtoo #teacher #teacherauthor #writer #classroomteachers #tpt #literacyinfocus #teachertribe

One of my fav quotes said by MLK that I have tattooed on my leg. Everything that happens in your life, you will learn to appreciate it because it will only make you stronger & you’ll learn to never give up ✊🏽🌻 . . #mlk #martinlutherking #rosaparks #malcomx #colinkaepernick #issarae #blacklivesmatter #melaninpoppin #palmbeachcountyschools #yarashahidi #staywoke #africa #montgomeryalabama #busboycott #civilrights #civilrightsmovement #equality
Happy 90th birthday to one of the greatest influential people to walk this earth. I remember back in 2012/13 when I was still in high school & for the FCAT Writes the topic was “who would you choose to be on the $1 bill & why?” I chose MLK & I had so much to say & gave so many details on specific events that I remembered occurred in his life back during the civil rights movement & how his actions impacted so many people then & now. I was graded the highest score of a 6 🤗. Again, Happy Birthday MLK, Rest In Peace ✊🏽🌻💕💕💕 . . #mlk #martinlutherking #rosaparks #malcomx #colinkaepernick #issarae #blacklivesmatter #melaninpoppin #palmbeachcountyschools #yarashahidi #staywoke #africa #montgomeryalabama #busboycott #civilrights #civilrightsmovement #equality

Hannah learned about Rosa Parks in school today and I remembered that Lauren has this book and it was her favorite one to read so I looked for it and I'm so glad I did. As we all read the book together I started crying thinking of the way she was treated, how anyone was treated that way and the words I read tonight took on new meaning, especially with what's going on in the world right now. No one has the right to discriminate against another. We are all humans. We all have feelings, have love, have families, have history... We all want a good life and who should have any right to take that away from someone no matter where they're from or the color of their skin or the entity they worship or the language they speak? Thank you Hannah for asking to learn more about Rosa Parks today and for letting me read it with you. 💜💜💜💜
Under the system of segregation used on Montgomery buses, the ten front seats were reserved for whites at all times. The ten back seats were supposed to be reserved for blacks at all times. The middle section of the bus consisted of sixteen unreserved seats for whites and blacks on a segregated basis. Whites filled the middle seats from the front to back, and blacks filled seats from the back to front until the bus was full. If other black people boarded the bus, they were required to stand. If another white person boarded the bus, then everyone in the black row nearest the front had to get up and stand, so that a new row for white people could be created; it was illegal for whites and blacks to sit next to each other. When Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat for a white person, she was sitting in the first row of the middle section. Often when boarding the buses, black people were required to pay at the front, get off, and reenter the bus through a separate door at the back. Occasionally, bus drivers would drive away before black passengers were able to reboard. National City Lines owned the Montgomery Bus Line at the time of the Montgomery bus boycott. #selmabusboycott #rosaparks #martinlutherkingjr #blackunity #blackawareness #blackawakening #blackpower

Loving this inspiring book recommended to me by my friend @kamillereadsbooks ! Any book that celebrates women’s achievements is top on my list. These women dared to defy stereotypes and broke barriers for centuries! Such an empowering book. The illustrations are wonderful! Easy & fun read. #whatwouldshedo
Not gonna write a long passage.. However if you do not respect, acknowledge, and understand this man and the path he attempted to put out for us... Unfriend me now. Despite what Ppl might say we are still behind and still in a slave mentality world. Go forward and claim what's yours. Don't fall behind, stand up for what you believe in. HBD MLK JR. Peace and blessings to all. #blacklivesmatter ✊🏾 #hope #faith #peace #justice #life #betterdaysahead 🙏 #faithwithoutworksisdead #iwillnotbemoved #segregation #love #protectyourown #blackbusiness #aintnothingfree #harriettubman #marcusgarvey #rosaparks #martinlutherkingjr #malcolmx

"I'd like somebody to mention that day that Martin Luther King, Jr. tried to give his life serving others...And I want you to say that I tried to love and serve humanity." Thank you Dr. King. On today, your 90th birthday, we can say that you did more than try. #MLK90 #MLK #MartinLutherKing #BlackHistory

#DefiPhotoLGQV 💛 Aujourd'hui, ma mission du jour pour le défi photo était de prendre une photo d'#architecture pour le thème du jour. En prenant mon RER pour me rendre à Paris, j'ai toujours été attiré par cet immeuble contemporain à côté la gare de Rosa Park que je vois à chaque fois depuis la fenêtre du RER. Difficile de ne pas le voir d'ailleurs...car ses couleurs criardes jaunes et blanches attirent l'oeil ...avec aussi ses fenêtres de formes ronde, en losange et en croix. Alors je suis descendue à l'arrêt et clic clac, ni une ni deux, c'était dans la boîte pour la partager avec vous ce soir ! Je me suis toujours demandée si il y avait bien des gens qui habitaient dans cet immeuble et à quoi pouvait ressembler les appartements à l'intérieur ! #Merci pour toutes vos photos d'architecture...vous m'avez fait voyagé encore une fois ! Bravo #rosaparks #rer #detail #architecture #30dayschallenge #building #doiy #instaphoto #jaune #contemporain
Appreciating a hip-hop classic: #outkast 1998 LP #aquemini The groups 3rd full length studio album proved to be a stroke of experimental genius. The 16 track LP is a: soulful/funk underlining, full of live instrumentation with creative themes and colorful lyrics provided by the duo. "The Player" and "The Poet" gave us the timeless hit single #rosaparks along with the funk driven #skewitonthebarb and #spottiedottiedopalicious Whereas #westsavannah was that south joint of humble beginnings and #theartofstorytelling 1 and 2 were exactly that, all the while touching on social issues.. #synthesizer feat. George Clinton was an awesome almost sci-fi joint that took us to the year 3029 haha. Over all, Aquemini is an INCREDIBLE album! (Fun Fact: Aquemini received 5 mics from The Source magazine, the 1st for any dirty south artist) #hiphop #dirtysouth #atl #legends #classic #90shiphop #holyshithiphop

Rosa Parks 📚 Did you know that there were four other ladies before Rosa Parks that stood up (or should I say sat down 😊) against the segregated bus system in Montgomery? When it came Rosa Parks’ turn the community was well prepared and deemed her a perfect candidate to galvanize the movement around. . . . . 📚 In celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. Day and Black History Month join us in learning about inspiring African Americans past and present. 📚 That being said since African American history is American history I believe it should be taught concurrently. Therefore, I encourage you to find time throughout the year to educate yourself and your children on its importance and history. 📚 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #blackhistoryisamericashistory #diversebooks #africanamericanhistorymatters #africanamericanhistory #blackexcellence #blackhistory #blackhistorymonth #africanamericanhistorymonth #weneeddiversebooks #representationmatters #diversebooksforkids #multiculturalkidsbooks #kidsbookstagram #picturebooks #kidsbookshelf #blackhistorybooks #blackhistoryfactoftheday #rosaparks #rosaparksday #montgomerybusboycott #raisingalegacy #blackgirlmagic#bookids #kidsbookswelove
I used to think money, nice cars, nice houses, back to back in Bentley trucks, private jets, all the material things of this world was success, thought it was important and something to work hard for.. then I realized that chasing purpose, doing God’s will, changing lives, waking people up, putting your life on the line to change the world, that’s real success to me.. i will never chase money, never let it be the reason why I create, purpose is my goal. And if I change a billion lives, humanity and animals and nature, over making a billion dollars, I’ll take take any day.. YOUNG WORLD.. LOVE LIFE, DONT LOVE MONEY. Success comes in fulfilling purpose. Not becoming rich and powerful. #messagetotheyouth #youngworld #chasepurpose #purpose #purposedriven #success #youth #lovelife #Godswill #blackexcellence #humanity #wildlife #life #rosaparks #thebnotecollection

REALLY IMPORTANT POST!!! Thoughts from the sauna! Homo sapiens, the present species, are around 195.000-315.000 years old and they evolved in east Africa/North Africa. Hunter-gathers evolved 2 millions years ago. The population we have in Europe now, started for around 9.000 years ago in Southeastern Europe and Northern Europe for around 5.000 years ago. That’s because Europe were depopulated by the last glacial maximum, 15.000 years ago. Today we have much more sophisticated genetic test equipment and there is no doubt, that the population of Europe, first had dark skin. Just like the polar bear became a reality by a genetic mutation between two brown bears. The new “white” bear had an advantage of hiding in the snowy landscape when hunting and therefor by evolution, that gene became the one that “survived” in that area. In Northern Europe the low light favoured light skin and the gene spread faster there, than in the south of Europe. When the first farmers from the Near East entered Europe, they carried two light skin genes and as they interbred with the hunter-gatherers one of the genes swept through Europe. So central and Southern Europe began to have lighter skin. We people in the modern Europe are a crazy mix of genes from society’s all around the world. It’s no more than 5.800-7.800 years ago, that people in Europe got pale skin. So here comes the sad part. Imagine how many years some were thought by religion or other believes, that the black man was a slave for the white man, and they could use them like they were things! I’m really sorry how some of my ancestors might have treated my older ancestors! But like Martin Luther King Jr. and Rosa Parks turned the whole situation around, by forgiving the white people for their violent acts and abuse, so do I. I forgive you all. That’s how we move forward, by spreading love and not hate. The same thing is happening with animals right now, it’s called speciesism. We know today, from science that animals have feelings, they are all individuals and many of them have empathy for one another. 👇🏼👇🏼 Last part in comments👇🏼👇🏼 Sorry for long post 🙈😊
