    !!! Happy Black History Month 2014 !!!

    HAPPY BLACK HISTORY MONTH EVERYONE


    I really enjoyed the Black History Month thread from last year and I thought that I would try to re-create this for 2014.

    Today on Google you can find that they are celebrating Harriet Tubman. Who has one of the most interesting life stories you will ever read. I question whether I would even be here if it werent for her. Who knows how many of our family members have crossed paths with this amazing woman.


    As for a contemporary person Id like to post about Lavern Cox, who I admire more and more everyday. Id love to see her speak some day.


    Laverne Cox is an actress, producer and transgender advocate who made television history when she became the first African-American transgender woman to appear on an American reality show, with her appearance as a finalist on VH1's I Want to Work for Diddy. The show won the GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Reality Program.

    Laverne’s popularity subsequently led her to star in, co-create and co-produce her own show called TRANSform Me, making her the first African-American trans woman to produce and star in her own television show. TRANSform Me was nominated for a GLAAD media award for Outstanding Reality Program.
    She currently stars in Netflix's Orange is the New Black. Which is amazing. Check it out.

    Re: !!! Happy Black History Month 2014 !!!

    Hi, Miss Anne. Thank you for booting up the topic again this year.

    I'd like to throw a hat in the ring. I don't have anything new to contribute concerning the notables of Black History, but I do have a few affirmations to share. There are many things I have enjoyed in my 52 years of life that are only possible through either the contribution of African culture or the hard-won victories of the civil rights movement.

    First, and most dearly, I'd like to celebrate the legacy of soul food, especially in Southern cuisine, and its role in my own heritage. My upbringing in a poor family in Arkansas meant that my day-to-day life was filled with good food that was largely developed and mastered by generations of great Black cooks. It is yet one of the most binding resonances I share with my neighbors of all colors. Specifically, I say a big thank you for cornbread, beans and peas of all kinds, greens, chicken and dumplings, okra, gumbo, jambalaya, barbecue and the spices brought in through the Caribbean, chicken and dumplings, fried chicken, pork dishes of every kind, grits, hot-water cornbread, fried pies, hominy, and biscuits developed in myriad and perfect ways.

    I am going to post other first-person experiences, but I'll stop for now with just the food, and let others post.

    Actually there's this....

    I remember vividly reading about this in the past year.

    I'm a space geek.





    Guion S. Bluford - first African-American in space.

    He first went up on the Space Shuttle in 1983 (first pic is probably from his NASA group selection in 1978). Three more missions followed, and when he went on his last flight (second pic) in 1992, he had been up in space four times.

    And while on the subject it should be mentioned this other....



    Ronald E. McNair (1950-1986) - second African-American in space, died in the Challenger explosion.

    He had already gone on one successful previous mission, in 1984.

    Disaster then struck on the launch of his second.

    There is a memorial in his honour in Lake City, South Carolina....





    ...and also a Memorial Park in Brooklyn, New York.

    yesssss! Her story continuously inspires and and amazes me. The bravery and courage alone is just something I cannot even fathom.

    I posted this on my fb today, because the quote still brings tears to my eyes:

    I'm a dark-skinned black guy. I've posted pics before, but currently have none on my profile.

    that all sounds VERY familiar.


    I should join you in giving thanks.

    Gabrielle Douglas is the first woman of color and the first African-American gymnast in Olympic history to become the individual all-around champion, and the first American gymnast to win gold in both the individual all-around and team competitions at the same Olympics as well as being the only American All-Around Champion to win multiple gold medals, thus far. She is also the first all-around champion to not medal in an individual event since women's gymnastics was added to the Olympics in 1952
    Her movie is currently running on the Lifetime Channel.

    I probably posted this last year too.....Angela Davis is a personal hero of mine and worthy of a mention...she woke me up and I never saw things the same after listening to her...she fought the establishment when it wasn't cool and made a difference for everyone who came behind her.

    My favorite are the civil rights activists...and one of the ones who moved me a lot was Frederick Douglas...

    http://www.biography.com/people/fred...uglass-9278324

    "Abolitionist leader Frederick Douglass was born into slavery in Talbot County, Maryland. He became one of the most famous intellectuals of his time, advising presidents and lecturing to thousands on a range of causes, including women’s rights and Irish home rule. Among Douglass’ writings are several autobiographies eloquently describing his experiences in slavery and his life after the Civil War."

    I would suggest reading "Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglas"....


    "If there is no struggle there is no progress. . . . Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will."

    – Frederick Douglass

    Re: !!! Happy Black History Month 2014 !!!

    I'd like to celebrate one of my elementary school teachers, Mrs. Swan. She was short, plucky, and a wonderful and loving woman. I was fortunate enough to both sit under her tutelage in the fifth grade as well as teach alongside her in the same school system when I later returned to teach there. We took a writing course together one summer through in-service training.

    She was almost retired when I was a returning teacher, so she must have been born around 1930 or so. Her life spanned difficult times and saw many changes in our society. I was so thankful that she was a positive person, an inspiring teacher, and a motivated goader of lazy kids. I love science to this day because she taught so well.

    When I visited with her during our class together, as well as at other all-faculty meetings, she expressed obvious affection and care. I had been worried that my feelings about her may have just been the affections of a lonely child projected on a mother figure, but her sincere concern was evident. She more or less let me know that she had been worried about me and my siblings when I was in school. My mother was a rough piece of work, and teachers often stood in and filled the gap and saw that we got clothes, extra help, and whatever.

    I cite this because Mattie and I both came from fairly poor people, and from two sides of a segregated world which took down those barriers shortly after I was born. Her generosity and forgiveness for the wrongs done her and her people were predicates to enable me to have such a loving teacher. It helped me particularly at a time when my own family was failing me pretty miserably. When we talk about Dr. King's dream, she was working toward it, not to a society divided by animus. Maybe 30 to 40% of my teachers were Black, but she was a true standout for both attitude and skill.

    Great people are all around us. Few ever get remembered in marble or celebrated by the nation.

    Thank you, Mrs. Swan. You inspired me.

    (Her surname is not Swan, but I hated to refer to her impersonally, as she was very personable.)

    The Negro Baseball League was founded today in 1920. They look so proud. It warms my heart.

    This is from a children's website as you can tell from the language below Still good info though.

    The Negro Leagues was an African American baseball league that was created because African Americans, who were called Negros at the time, were not allowed to play in the Major Leagues due to segregation. The first league, The Negro National League, was founded in 1920 by Rube Foster.

    Teams would sometimes play two or three games in one day. Major league teams barnstormed as well but because of segregation, Negro League players had a tougher time. They were unwelcome by most hotels so after traveling for hours on a bus, they would have to sleep on that bus or in the ballpark. Negro Leaguers sometimes had to travel several hundred miles to find a restaurant that would serve them. They couldn’t use many public restrooms and in some stadiums that were not allowed to use the locker rooms.
    Jackie Robinson played in the Negro Leagues for one season before becoming the first African American to play in the Majors.
    And for something contemporary......




    Kenyan-Mexican actress and film director. She made her American film debut in Steve McQueen's 12 Years a Slave (2013) as Patsey, for which she received critical acclaim. For her role Nyong'o won the Screen Actors Guild and Critics' Choice Award for Best Actress in a Supporting Role, and was nominated for the Golden Globe, BAFTA and Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress.
    I just have a feeling that this woman will make history. Lupita Nyong'o from 12 Years A Slave. I recommend the film but I REALLY recommend the book. Its a great read, one of the best books I have ever had the pleasure of reading.

    She is definitely someone to watch.

    Can we do contemporary tributes!

    Gurira was born in Grinnell, Iowa and was raised there until December 1983, when she moved with her family to Harare, Zimbabwe. She graduated from Grinnell High School and went on to study at Macalester College. She earned her MFA at New York University.

    Gurira's play, In the Continuum, commemorated World AIDS Day in December 2011.

    In March 2012, it was announced that she would join the cast of AMC's drama series The Walking Dead in the third season as Michonne. The same year, she received the Whiting Writers' Award.

    In 2008, she appeared at the Global Green Sustainable Design Awards to read a letter written by a New Orleans native displaced by Hurricane Katrina. Gurira co-founded Almasi in 2011, an organization dedicated to continuing arts education in Zimbabwe.

    You've inspired me here are two more Black women that are making history on TV. I love watching them.

    Kerry Washington





    By starring in ABC's Scandal, Washington is the first African-American actress to lead an American network drama series since 1974.

    Nicole Beharie



    The Juilliard-trained actress co-stars in Sleepy Hollow, a sci-fi action series that airs Mondays at 9 p.m. EDT on Fox. She may be familiar to those who saw her breakout performance in the 2008 indepdent drama American Violet opposite Alfre Woodard. She's better-known for her turn alongside Michael Fassbender as a woman in love with a sex addict in Steve McQueen's 2011 film Shame. Most recently she played Rachel Robinson, wife of Jackie Robinson (Chadwick Boseman), in the biopic 42

    Yesterday, I met a first grader named Sojourner. I thought, well...."Happy Black History Month to me".





    Sojourner Truth was an African-American abolitionist and women's rights activist. Truth was born into slavery in Swartekill, Ulster County, New York, but escaped with her infant daughter to freedom in 1826. After going to court to recover her son, she became the first black woman to win such a case against a white man. Sojourner Truth was named Isabella Baumfree when she was born. She gave herself the name Sojourner Truth in 1843. Her best-known extemporaneous speech on gender inequalities, "Ain't I a Woman?", was delivered in 1851 at the Ohio Women's Rights Convention in Akron, Ohio
    Here is more on Ms. Truth. Very interersting.

    I know, right ? My college did that one time during Black History Month. They had a BHM dinner and there was definitely fried chicken, greens , sweet potatoes, mac n' cheese etc. My friends and I joked about how stereotypical it was but best believe that we went right up there and got seconds.

    I don't remember there being watermelon. I may have had a problem with that. But, hell.....I love watermelon. IDK. It sucks that liking these kinds of foods has such negative connotations to it. Plus Black folks werent the only people going up there to eat.

    That being said, yes...I can see why people found it offensive. Its like serving potatoes and whiskey for Irish American Heritage Month.

    I don't remember there being watermelon. I may have had a problem with that. But, hell.....I love watermelon. IDK. It sucks that liking these kinds of foods has such negative connotations to it. Plus Black folks werent the only people going up there to eat.

    That being said, yes...I can see why people found it offensive. Its like serving potatoes and whiskey for Irish American Heritage Month.
    It's not offensive when it's identified as soul food, however.

    What's wrong with that? It is a staple of an everyday diet, isn't it?

    Audre Lorde





    Self-styled "black, lesbian, mother, warrior, poet," writer Audre Lorde dedicated both her life and her creative talent to confronting and addressing the injustices of racism, sexism, and homophobia. Her poetry, and "indeed all of her writing," according to contributor Joan Martin in Black Women Writers (1950-1980): A Critical Evaluation, "rings with passion, sincerity, perception, and depth of feeling." ]

    Concerned with modern society's tendency to categorize groups of people, Lorde fought the marginalization of such categories as "lesbian" and "black woman," thereby empowering her readers to react to the prejudice in their own lives. While the widespread critical acclaim bestowed upon Lorde for dealing with lesbian topics made her a target of those opposed to her radical agenda, she continued, undaunted, to express her individuality, refusing to be silenced.
    I need to pick up a copy of Sister Outsider.

    Can I ?..... This was really important to me. It may not seem like a big deal but I was all up in that movie theatre when The Princess and The Frog was released. My sister and I were the only people in there without children

    Princess Tiana: Disney's First Black Princess




    The best part about this is the fact that little black girls are able to see themselves inside the story instead of viewing it like an outsider. Yes, I pretended to be White characters while watching films as a child but there was always that Not Quite feeling during make believe.

    I also love to see little white girls with Princess Tiana bookbags, it gives my that yay ! feeling.

    Tiana was voiced by the beautiful and extremely talented Anika Noni Rose, another amazing Black actress.

    Today on Google you can find that they are celebrating Harriet Tubman. Who has one of the most interesting life stories you will ever read. I question whether I would even be here if it werent for her. Who knows how many of our family members have crossed paths with this amazing woman.


    As for a contemporary person Id like to post about Lavern Cox, who I admire more and more everyday. Id love to see her speak some day.




    She currently stars in Netflix's Orange is the New Black. Which is amazing. Check it out.
    She is not black.....

    haha yes, you may...and I definitely understand how special that movie was to black children (or anyone who could appreciate such a landmark in Disney history). Sadly, I have yet to see it. *makes a note*

    and Anika is beautiful. <3 I've always loved her.


    Edit: Pat, figjam (whatever your name is)...please do not start that nonsense in this thread. Thank you.

    Black women who were lynched in America

    this is just a 'small sample', I'm sure.

    Let's have a moment of silence for these individuals who endured a life of agony, pain and hardships that many of us could never imagine. Reading stories like this remind me to be grateful that I live in this day and age (things could be a lot worse). I could not imagine living in a time when it seemed as if the entire world was against you...a time with no justice, and little hope.

    mad respect and remembrance to everyone in that article and each person who suffered a similar fate.
