    True. It also gives one occasion to think on the mind-boggling stupidity on the part of those who opposed his education. To be that committed to self-delusion and petty ignorance is also some kind of perverse achievement.

    I guess you probably already know since you said you were going to look it up, but she was big on the "Underground Railroad", guiding slaves along the system of safehouses (or hiding out in the woods) on the trek north to Canada. The travelling was mostly done at night, so navigation was often done by stars and moss on trees. If I RECALL correctly she was a little involved with the infancy of the women's suffrage issue as well. She had been beaten severely in her days as a slave and had permanent brain damage from an injury to her head, which resulted in lifelong fainting spells.

    I missed this link the first time around.

    Well, if anyone is lurker reading the thread and secretly agrees with that idea, or is hesitant to ask what's wrong with it, I'll give a short answer. American History essentially is, barring some sidebars or segues in modern history books, white history. And it was even moreso in the past where contributions, inventions or participation by nonwhite people was marginalized or left out entirely. The entire movement to bring about ethnic studies and recognition of minority contributions was because you used to be able to get a PhD in History and not know a single thing about any minority contributions to the greater flow of American History.

    American History remains, regardless of many people's bloated sense of "having stuff about other groups forced down their throat all the time, essentially still a story about mainstream history, which means white history for the most part. Black History month exists to shine some spotlight on the achievements and contributions of black Americans to our history which, in a formal textbook, will come only in a designated chapter about slavery or the civil rights movement or a sidebar about Frederick Douglas in a book which otherwise tells the effectually white mainstream story of history and from that perspective primarily.

    Re: Its February! Happy Black History Month !

    Someone earlier in the thread mentioned Langston Hughes…

    Here’s a recent, very interesting, literary history I can recommend that focuses on the relationship Hughes had with Carl Van Vechten, a cosmopolitan, white, writer/photographer/socialite, in 1920-50s New York, who fostered the careers of a very large number of writers of the so-called, ‘Harlem Renaissance.’

    As well as Langston Hughes, Van Vechten’s amazingly influential, mainly gay (but pre-gay lib), literary/musical/artistic/theatrical ‘salon’ included such otherwise-closeted, gay luminaries (and literary lights) of the age, as Gertrude Stein (who chose him, over her publisher Bennett Cerf, to be her ‘literary executor’ upon her death), W. Somerset Maugham, Evelyn Waugh, Noël Coward, Glenway Wescott, Monroe Wheeler, Donald Vining, Marsden Hartley, Hart Crane, Wallace Thurman, Alain Locke, Countee Cullen, Claude McKay, Thornton Wilder, Christopher Isherwood, Tennessee Williams, Carson McCullers, Flannery O’Connor, Audre Lorde, James Baldwin, Truman Capote, Gore Vidal, Charles Henri Ford, W. H. Auden, Frank O’Hara, John Ashbery, James Schuyler, Robert Lowell, Elizabeth Bishop, and Paul and Jane Bowles.

    He also knew (and entertained at his frequent ‘at homes’ in Manhattan and elsewhere around the world) such singers, musicians, and composers, as Ada “Bricktop” Smith, Bessie Smith, Ma Rainey, Alberta Hunter, Ethel Waters, Arthur Gold, George Gershwin, Aaron Copland, Virgil Thompson, Leonard Bernstein, Lorenz Hart, and Billy Strayhorn.

    Among the artists, photographers, and architects he befriended (and whose careers he also helped) were Jacob Epstein, Gaston Lachaise, Joan Miró, Salvador Dalí, Marc Chagall, Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo, Thomas Hart Benton, Thomas Scofield Handforth, Paul Cadmus, Fairfield Porter, Pavel Tchelitchew, James Richmond Barthé, Georgia O’Keeffe, Alfred Stieglitz, Edward Steichen, Imogen Cunningham, Miguel Covariances (Van Vechten’s own photography teacher and mentor), George Platt Lynes, Horst P. Horst, and Philip Johnson.

    Among the dancers, choreographers, balletomanes, critics, and actors of his personal acquaintance were Josephine Baker, Jerome Robbins, Lincoln Kirstein, Edwin Denby, Parker Tyler, Alfred Lunt, Lynn Fontanne, Laurence Olivier, Danny Kaye, Tallulah Bankhead, and the unfortunate Ramon Novarro.

    ‘Carl Van Vechten and the Harlem Renaissance: A Portrait in Black and White’ – by Emily Bernard

    And click the link ‘Read’ at the beginning of the review (or here) for an introductory essay by Professor Bernard, Hands Across Time, which begins in the following fashion:

    Carl Van Vechten detested “sincerely.” He reprimanded Langston Hughes more than once for signing his correspondence that way. For Van Vechten, letters were opportunities for affection and imagination. Over the course of many years of snooping through his mail, I rarely came across a recycled valediction. Once he wished Hughes “768 white penguin feathers for 76 black swans.” A few years later, it was “four brightcolored roosters to you and a hen to make them happy!” In July 1941, when Hughes was in California for work, Van Vechten ended a letter with “hands across the states.”

    And, like someone said in the Buzzfeed comments, Black people arent the only ones with a heritage month.

    There is an Italian American heritage month, Irish American heritage month, Hispanic heritage month, Asian Pacific American Month etc. but people still think that Black people are the only ones with a heritage month.

    Maybe its because you hear about Black History Month the most.

    I read somewhere that Black History Month was also created in order to highlight the achievements of Blacks in the US because, at the time, many were saying that Blacks weren't productive members of society with no positive contributions to the country. Black History Month dispels this stereotype.

    You have to know 'the big picture' before delving into the details so you can appreciate them in context.

    So many school kids resent having to attend school at all let alone having a basic education being 'forced down their throat'.

    http://www.justusboys.com/forum/thre...ghlight=school
    You're only obliquely relating to the point I was making at all, which is kind of usual.

    People talk about a sidebar about Harriet Tubman or a week on civil rights out of a school year as "always being forced to hear about blacks" the same way that straight people upon even hearing that someone has a boyfriend talk about "homos always shove it in your face", with no sense of proportion.

    What I learned about my own city:





    Pennsylvania Hall was built in 1838 by the Pennsylvania Anti-Slavery Society. This group, (Black and White) raised over $40,000 to build a safe place to gather peacefully and discuss their beliefs. The building was burned to the ground by rioters three days after it was built. Firemen stood by and watched it burned. Anyone that attempted to put out the fires were attacked by the rioters.



    One of the main problems that the rioters had was the fact that Blacks and Whites were meeting together.

    Yes. She is a politician which is very much like play-acting. She may have Illeism or one of those mental conditions that Johann Bessler keeps on advocating.

    Very nice pictures, but I was wondering how sure it is that all of these guys are gay, or just (close) friends of each other. My PC does not have speakers, so I cannot listen to the video


    So I like the pictures very much, as they give a nice insight in the past. But I do get the idea that the majority of these pictures (especially the ones with only a very vague (or no information at all) about site & date & circumstances are plates of (random) guys (without knowing anything about their sexual activities / interests).

    Thanks in advance for providing me some insight in this topic.

    The narrators says about Dr. Christopher West, the professor of history examining the photos at the 2:45 mark, "Whether it's a romantic relationship or just a platonic friendship, one thing is very clear. These men were fearless."

    Dr. West: "And I think what you're seeing in some of the images is, there's clearly a courage. If you're choosing to memorialize the image, one can presume that, on the spectrum of 'I'm going to conform' and 'I'm going to be who I am', that you're seeing men toward 'I'm going to be who I am'."

    Some photos were inscribed on the back with some rather 'telling' information. Otherwise, it is the photos themselves which reveal that the feelings seem to go beyond mere friendship.

    Here's the website link again. Go visit it and look at the photos more closely: http://www.flickr.com/photos/hidden-...472079/detail/

    Yeah, I wondered that myself. Some of them are pretty obvious. The collector said that on the back of one picture someone wrote "Bob and his special friend" lol. So they could probably be determined as a couple. I also suspect that he gathered some of the photos from people that actually knew the men and probably could give some information on the nature of their relationship.

    Either way, its nice to see Black men being affectionate towards one another. You don't often see that in today's culture.

    Claudette Colvin at 15, refused to give up her seat on the bus to a white passenger nine months before Rosa Parks' famous bus boycott. The NAACP didn't want to use her in the movement because she became a unwed teenage mother and they didn't think that she sent the correct message.


    Contrary to popular belief, Rosa Park's boycott was done purposefully and was orchestrated by the NAACP. Parks was an educated, NAACP Secretary.

    Did you know ?

    Tice Davids, a runaway slave from Kentucky, was the inspiration for the first usage of the term "Underground Railroad." Davids' owner assumed the slave had drowned when he attempted his swim across the Ohio River. He told the local paper that if Davids had escaped, he must have traveled on "an underground railroad." Davids, however, did live, giving the Underground Railroad its now-famous name.

    Don't feel bad - she must have been pretty close to the second person to ever have a talk show… It was pretty much nothing but Phil Donahue until she came along, and then the floodgates opened. It used to be almost a news program in her early days. Kind of like Oprah does Piers Morgan, but with a studio audience who got to ask questions.


    edit - oh - there was Alan Thicke before her too.

    Two things about that historic day:
    1) Yaaaaay! Now little black girls could have a role model to promote unhealthy and unrealistic body image just like little white girls!
    2) The thing I notice most is the photo on the packaging. Anyone else think it was odd for Mattel to enforce segregated dating policies? Why couldn't Black Barbie go out with White Ken, or vice versa? I mean maybe hoping for White Ken to be going out with Black Ken was a step more than the 80's could handle, but I was alive then, and I remember walking past toys like that and sit-coms like that coming up from the states and wondering why they wanted everyone to match. It stood out as bizarre and fake, even before I was 10 years old.

    All that said, kudos to Ms. Winfrey. She owns it, pardon the pun.

    And, what do you mean "don't want to go on too much of a tangent"? This is Hot Topics. We should be talking about cake already.
    When I said "I didn't know she was first" I meant "first black person to have a nationally syndicated talkshow", rather than "first talkshow" or whatever.

So, imagine how it would be 33 years ago debuting Black Barbie and pairing her up with White Ken. And I'm sure it would have been pretty taboo for the white mainstream as well. Especially for something target towards children. 0_o
    Depends what your experience is. 33 years ago in western canada, there weren't that many non-white people. So if you saw a non-white person in a relationship, they were probably dating a white person... because who else was there to date? If I think back, any non-white person my parents knew was dating or married to a white person. The only "homogenous" couples we knew were white, just based on statistics, until we moved down the street from a family that had immigrated from the Philippines where the marriage occurred unsurprisingly between two filipino adults.

    In my grandparent's generation (born in the 1910's to 1930's) anglicans married anglicans, french catholics married french catholics, jews married jews, german lutherans married german lutherans, and ukrainian orthodox married ukrainian orthodox. That covered pretty much the entire spectrum of ethnocultural diversity on the prairies, apart from the aboriginal cultures being ripped apart by the anglican and catholic churches.

    In my parents' and aunts & uncles' generation (postwar to 1959 or 60), they just didn't respect those boundaries any more, and immigration threw open the door for all kinds of new combinations from around the world. Or at least, one or two new combinations, since it took a while for immigration to change the face of the prairies. For the 70's kid, this seemed obvious and inevitable. We all watched apartheid in south africa with contempt…and with smug superiority to be frank…look at that inept and cruelly racist afrikaner government! To recreate apartheid in one's personal relationships would never be legitimate. That was the "white mainstream" view, at least for the youngest two generations (mine/parents).

    In American pop culture, I suppose the issue got raised on the Jeffersons by Tom and Helen Willis….but even as a kid it was "obvious" through the portrayal of George's mockable bigotry toward them that interracial couples should be considered the socially approved norm. It seemed as though the show was crafting a message to help people who were maybe a little slow in the head to get over the idea that couples should be colour-coordinated.

    Anyway to a prairie boy, the idea that people would have to separate into ethnic communities, or separate into ethnic churches, or ethnic couples, seemed very strange. For two reasons: first, where would you find all the black/brown/russian or portuguese people?(I had no idea how far advanced immigration was in Montreal, Toronto or Vancouver) but, second, vaguely suspicious (why are these particular black/brown/russian/portuguese people trying to avoid joining in the rest of the general community when every immigrant I've ever known has lived on the same streets, dated the same people, integrated into the same community events just like the rest of us?)

    Even the idea of ethnocultural community identity seemed somewhere between outdated, divisiveness, or a sad concession to the bigotry of the oldest dying generation. If it was to be expressed at all, it was through two weeks of Folklorama. Joan will bring the Jamaican patties, Frank's father is bugging him to practice for the Dragon Dance but he really wants to do hockey summer camp... Sylvia's brother will do the Ukranian Dancing no problem. The Orthodox Church hall got flooded, so they're sharing space with the Italians - Tzatziki trattoria! I'll bring Grandma's scone recipe but she's going to have to make the haggis herself cause…just, no. We all have a culture for exactly two weeks every summer. And then we go back to being Canadians.

    30 years later, there is more complexity to it than that, and probably there was then, especially in places with more history. The entire history of Winnipeg, Calgary, Edmonton (hell, Manitoba, Alberta and Saskatchewan) occurred within the lifetime of a woman who held me when I was born. But from that perspective, then and now, it still looks baffling that people would restrict their dating based on how dead people treated other dead people. Or that Mattel would endorse it.

    ^Bankside, it totally makes sense what you're saying about how in the past in many parts of Canada, minorities would be intermarried with whites simply because there weren't large nonwhite communities around. In the U.S. and I'm not sure how "globally" this is studied, but I do know that intermarriage rate in the U.S. is heavily overlapped with assimilation. One of the groups with the highest intermarriage rates, for instance, are older northeast Asian immigrant groups-- Japanese, etc. It tends to be lowest with newest, non integrated groups-- you'll definitely find a lot more Japanese Americans married to whites than Cambodians or Thai, for example. Intermarriage rate has become one of the factors by which they gauge how well integrated a group is in the U.S.

    Oprah was not the First Black woman to host a syndicated talk show...Della Reese was...Oprah saluted Della @ The Legends ball years ago and acknowledged the fact...

    Della was also the FIRST Black woman to guest host Johnny Carson's "The Tonight Show"....

    I have always admired Josephine Baker, a singer who acted as a spy for the Allies in WWII.

    This scene of what she said while performing for troops is amazing.
