    Its February! Happy Black History Month !

    Its Black History Month here in the USA.

    I was looking for a fun/inspirational video about Black History Month to put up on Facebook

    I found this.... Hmm. Mind you, this is at BYU.



    Most of the people probably dont know how ignorant they sound.

    And...Whats up with the Black guy not knowing when Black History Month is ?

    Re: Its February! Happy Black History Month !

    Black History Month is a good thing. For one thing, as time marches on from the generations that knew the 60's, there is a ton of ignorance in the young of every race, as history is often ignored in class.

    The video was a stunt, and not much more. It is hard to imagine how it could inspire. That he may have looked ambiguous is enough reason why many may not have challenged him. There are plenty of mixed race people out there, so his unusual look was hardly Al Jolson from the Jazz Singer.

    At its core, his interview was a deception aimed at mocking his subjects in the heart of white Utah. It was also set on BYU's campus, so it by definition is the upper classes of the Mormons who attend there. I was told by a missionary that only the elite can afford to attend, so it might as well be Oxford for the ability of minorities to attend, considering the disproportionate poverty among minorities.

    If a reporter had tried to get black students somewhere to air their ignorance of history, or to slip into making fun of Asians or Anglos or whomever, he may have been just as successful at exposing limited perspectives.

    It's not that race is no longer a problem or an issue, but it's obviously socially acceptable to lampoon white ethnocentrism but poison to do so to black ethnocentrism.

    That sheltered white kids exist is no surprise. Whether they represent anything larger is a better question, and hardly demonstrated in the iconoclast's lampoon.

    As to the black guy not knowing Black History month is February, that is not so shocking, and speaks to the reason the month exists. PBS, the largest promoter of Black History month outside the public school system, begins airing a great number of civil rights documentaries in January, so it is understandable why the exact month becomes obscured sometimes in the minds of the viewers.

    And what a way to start. A black pastress -- who GETS the 10% coincidentally -- wants everyone fired for insulting her ministry. Some pastress. She should eat at her soup kitchen.

    I hope that Im not being misunderstood.

    I did not find this video inspirational. I am still looking for a non-depressing/inspirational Black History Month video.

    I also didn't post it thinking that the BYU students represented White Americans.

    Actually I found it humorous. I attended a school in a very rural area and they reminded me of my classmates.

    I am sorry if I misinterpreted the posting. BYU and the LDS in general are often seen as the quintessential white enclave, so it just sounded familiar. Even within the LDS, there is a growing push to live up to the diversity that the leadership at the Temple espouses since the whole revision in the 70's thing.

    More telling to me, a man who grew up in the South in the 60's, I didn't see anyone say anything hateful. The white kids did fall into the ghetto schtick too readily, but none of them were mean, just lame attempts at imitating what they saw on videos, etc. It also didn't help that the black guy with the glasses fell into the trap about having better game, which feeds the whole bed-a-white-girl persona.

    In all seriousness, I find a significant degree of progress toward Dr. King's dream, in that there is a great deal of mixing between races today, and that is key. And even more, I see opportunities for breaking outward and upward that were absolutely not there before.

    Unfortunately, the growing divide between rich and poor in the U.S. is affecting everything, and minority opportunity is just a part of that.

    We are truly in their debt. And they are every stripe. When people of the older generation start down a road of griping about perceived deterioration of society here in the U.S., I quickly remind them that civil rights for minorities, for women, and for those who had no justice in law before, have seen real gains in the 20th century, and that I would never go back.

    Then:



    The 1968 Olympics Black Power salute was a protest made by the African American athletes Tommie Smith and John Carlos during their medal ceremony at the 1968 Olympic Games in the Olympic Stadium, Mexico City, Mexico. As they turned to face their flags and hear the American national anthem (The Star-Spangled Banner), they each raised a black-gloved fist and kept them raised until the anthem had finished. Smith, Carlos and Australian silver medalist Peter Norman wore human rights badges on their jackets. The event was one of the most overtly political statements[1] in the history of the modern Olympic Games. In his autobiography Silent Gesture, Tommie Smith stated that the gesture was not a "Black Power" salute, but a "human rights salute."

    I'm going to try to get this book for Black History Month. I only recently found out about who Henrietta Lacks is and I'm so fascinated (and saddened) by her story.



    Her name was Henrietta Lacks, but scientists know her as HeLa. She was a poor Southern tobacco farmer who worked the same land as her slave ancestors, yet her cells—taken without her knowledge—became one of the most important tools in medicine. The first “immortal” human cells grown in culture, they are still alive today, though she has been dead for more than sixty years. If you could pile all HeLa cells ever grown onto a scale, they’d weigh more than 50 million metric tons—as much as a hundred Empire State Buildings. HeLa cells were vital for developing the polio vaccine; uncovered secrets of cancer, viruses, and the atom bomb’s effects; helped lead to important advances like in vitro fertilization, cloning, and gene mapping; and have been bought and sold by the billions.

    Yet Henrietta Lacks remains virtually unknown, buried in an unmarked grave.

    Now Rebecca Skloot takes us on an extraordinary journey, from the “colored” ward of Johns Hopkins Hospital in the 1950s to stark white laboratories with freezers full of HeLa cells; from Henrietta’s small, dying hometown of Clover, Virginia—a land of wooden slave quarters, faith healings, and voodoo—to East Baltimore today, where her children and grandchildren live and struggle with the legacy of her cells. - Amazon

    You forgot to mention the most famous of them all. Langston Hughes. He was a black poet of the 1920s period, and was rumored to be gay. It was also rumored that Malcolm X was bisexual, but that really does not count because he was addicted to Heroin, and other heavy harsh drugs. But that could count if you want it.

    Another good book for Black History Month would be:

    Warriors Dont Cry by Melba Patillo Beals, she was one of the Little Rock Nine. This is an incredibly good book. Her first account of what went on during the integration of the high school. Its crazy how even adults treated these brave children. You would also be surprised as to who befriended her.



    Melba is on the top row second to the left

    Sure thing: here's some info on Amber Valley, Alberta:
    It was settled by black homesteaders from Oklahoma just over a hundred years ago. The prejudice that would have given a strong reason for black families to stick together in a separate community weakened over time, and the settlement declined as farm life changed and people found better opportunities in other places in Alberta or the rest of the country. It's interesting that this Alberta story may be outside the US, but would not have happened without the US experience.

    In fact when I think of "black history" in canada, i think of black people from the US as a cultural grouping, as opposed to, say, somalis or ghanaians or zimbabweans who have immigrated in the last 25 years or so…people who in some contexts might be considered part of the same demographic. But I think that's a different history month! Is there a "Black History Fact" that does not relate to the experience of people in the US?


    https://maps.google.ca/maps?q=Amber+...,+Alberta&z=15

    Anyway, as you might guess from the map of Amber Valley as a farmer's field just north of a cloud, there is not a lot of black history on the canadian prairies, and not a lot of contemporary black presence with roots going back to the states either. I definitely noticed the demographic differences between my hometown and the US when I visited seattle…seattle has a huge black community compared to life in western Canadian cities, but Americans tell me Seattle is actually Whitey McWhiteville by comparison with other parts of the US.

    How well-known is Harriet Tubman? If you've not seen A Woman Called Moses, it's worth a peek. And so is The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pitman. Both star Cicely Tyson and neither seems to receive the television exposure they deserve.

    I would simply hope that Harriet Tubman is known to anyone who took grade school in the United States, but I guess we all know better than to assume anyone paid attention in history classes. :/

    Slavery in Canada was a limited phenomenon, being practised mostly among aboriginal canadians, and then done to them by the french colonists. Enslavement of people of african origin was a practise of british colonists.

    Records record some 3600 slaves in Canada in the mid-1700s, less than a third of whom were black. The collapse of the British colonies during the American Revolution resulted in the exit of many former colonists, who came to Canada as slaveholders, changing the figures above. This influx was legal, but at odds with Canadian practice. By the late 1700's the laws here restricted the practice greatly. By 1833 all Canadians were free, and Canada became a destination for those escaping slaveholders in the US. Figures from the Canadian Encyclopedia.


    Here's a beautifully written takedown of pro-slavery arguments during Canada's abolitionist period by Ward Chipman:

    Gaspar Yanga aka "Primer Libertador de America"

    Became a national hero and the Mexican municipality of Yanga is named after him.

    Gaspar Yanga—often simply Yanga or Nyanga—was a leader of a slave rebellion in Mexico during the early period of Spanish colonial rule. Said to be of the Bran people and member of the royal family of Gabon, Yanga came to be the head of a band of revolting slaves near Veracruz around 1570. Escaping to the difficult terrain of the highlands, he and his people built a small maroon colony, or palenque. For more than 30 years it grew, partially surviving by capturing caravans bringing goods to Veracruz. However, in 1609 the Spanish colonial government decided to undertake a campaign itself to regain control of the territory.

    One of the world's most successful, influential and epic slave revolts...

    The Haitian Revolution. Lead by General Toussaint L'Ouverture-- a black, self-educated former slave.



    Haiti went on to become the "first independent nation in Latin America, the first post-colonial independent black-led nation in the world, and the only nation whose independence was gained as part of a successful slave rebellion."

    Americans need to keep their guns so they can protect themselves from gun violence just like Nancy Lanza did. And like Chris Kyle did. And like Gabby Giffords did. And like Tom Clements did. And like Michael Piemonte. And Joseph Wilcox.

    Yes this thread is about black history month. Palbert, take a break. You are trolling this thread pretty hard and no one knows why and I don't think they care either.

    Bessie Coleman

    Elizabeth "Bessie" Coleman (January 26, 1892 – April 30, 1926) was an American civil aviator. She was the first female pilot of African American descent and the first person of African American descent to hold an international pilot license.

    Mae Jemison

    Mae Carol Jemison (born October 17, 1956) is an American physician and NASA astronaut. She became the first black woman to travel in space when she went into orbit aboard the Space Shuttle Endeavour on September 12, 1992. After her medical education and a brief general practice, Jemison served in the Peace Corps from 1985 to 1987. She resigned from NASA in 1993 to form a company researching the application of technology to daily life. She has appeared on television several times, including as an actress in an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation.

    It was in Star Trek that Nichols gained popular recognition by being one of the first black women featured in a major television series not portraying a servant; her prominent supporting role as a bridge officer was unprecedented. During the first year of the series, Nichols was tempted to leave the show, as she wanted to pursue a Broadway career; however, a conversation with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., changed her mind. She has said that King personally encouraged her to stay on the show, telling her that he was a big fan of the series. He said she "could not give up" because she was playing a vital role model for black children and young women across the country, as well as for other children who would see African Americans appearing as equals. It is also often reported that Dr. King added that "Once that door is opened by someone, no one else can close it again."

    Former NASA astronaut Mae Jemison has cited Nichols's role of Lieutenant Uhura as her inspiration for wanting to become an astronaut and Whoopi Goldberg has also spoken of Nichols's influence.

    The thing that I find rather interesting is that Black History is still being made in the US, and it's not always 'good' history. At times, it seems to be regressing.

    Ive learned so much from PBS' American Experience programs. They have recently been running a 4 parter entitled The Abolitionists . I didn't even know about a lot of these amazingly BRAVE people. I even learned new things about my own city.

    Also last night was the premiere of Betty and Coretta. Angela Bassett and Mary J. Blige played Coretta Scott King and Betty Shabaz.

    I found it interesting because this focused on the wives of Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X.

    Uhura FTW!



    And Uhura and Kirk was supposedly the first interracial kiss on American television.

    Yup. The director kept making them do it over and over because he said that Shatner looked too eager.
