I'm appalled by the apathy I've seen on social media today. While thousands of people are tagging the End It movement, others simply complain that the red x is useless. Just how many causes have their own symbol, and how many have made the effort to wear a pin, ribbon, or button to show their passion for a cause? That's what we're doing by drawing the red x. It isn't just drawing on our hands with a marker. The action we're taking shows we support the cause, just like flying our country's flag. Most of us truly stand behind the cause, and do what we can to spread awareness and educate others. We all have our own way of doing this. Don't take our efforts lightly. Reading the stories of victims has brought me to tears. I don't have a big platform. I'm not rich. I'm not hardy enough to join the military, and don't have the guts for law enforcement. But I have my art, I have a computer, and I can stream. It may not be much, but it's something.

Ralph Randolph Gurley letter to Benjamin Coates, dated 4 February 1842.
.
A letter related to the American Colonization Society, a group from the 19th century that assisted free Blacks in emigrating to Africa. Ralph Randolph Gurley was a clergyman and abolitionist who worked with the American Colonization for nearly 50 years. He wrote this letter in 1842 to fellow abolitionist and ACS member Benjamin Coates to update him on Gurley's efforts to secure financial support for the Society. References are made to two early Liberian governors - Thomas Buchanan, who has passed away a few months prior, and his successor Joseph Jenkins Roberts.

Alright people it’s time! @enditmovement FEBRUARY 22ND IS SHINE A LIGHT ON SLAVERY DAY. Will you join the fight for FREEDOM? Draw a ❌ on your hand, share on social media, and create change by bringing awareness to human trafficking! Educate people on the issue... Becoming aware of the issue is the first step. What you or others choose to do next, is up to you. How will you continue the fight in ending modern day slavery? 
Human Trafficking... It’s the illegal trade of human beings. It’s the recruitment, control, and use of people for their bodies and for their labor. Through force, fraud, and coercion, people everywhere are being bought and sold against their will–right now in the 21st century. 
But phrases like ‘slavery’ and ‘human trafficking’ can still feel ambiguous. This is the reality: slavery is violence. It’s physical, verbal, and sexual abuse. It’s forced prostitution. It’s barbaric working conditions. An estimated 40.3 million people are in modern slavery and is the fastest-growing criminal industry in the world generating more than $150 billion EVERY YEAR... “Modern-day slavery is as brutal as ever; more vast than ever, but more stoppable than ever.” -Gary Haugen

Allison got a great shot of me before I failed to destroy the Death Star and Darth Vader killed me. Mon, we visited an Underground Railroad house off Lark St (Stephen and Harriet Myers Residence) and then saw Black Panther!

The Civil War was America's bloodiest conflict.  The unprecedented violence of battles such as Shiloh, Antietam, Stones River, and Gettysburg shocked citizens and international observers alike.  Nearly as many men died in captivity during the Civil War as were killed in the whole of the Vietnam War.  Hundreds of thousands died of disease.  Roughly 2% of the population, an estimated 620,000 men, lost their lives in the line of duty.  Taken as a percentage of today's population, the toll would have risen as high as 6 million souls.

John Brown (May 9, 1800 – December 2, 1859) was an American abolitionistwho believed in and advocated armed insurrection as the only way to overthrow the institution of slavery in the United States. Brown first gained attention when he led small groups of volunteers during the Bleeding Kansas crisis of 1856. Dissatisfied with the pacifism of the organized abolitionist movement, he said, "These men are all talk. What we need is action—action!" In May 1856, Brown and his supporters killed five supporters of slavery in the Pottawatomie massacre, which responded to the sacking of Lawrence by pro-slavery forces. Brown then commanded anti-slavery forces at the Battle of Black Jack (June 2) and the Battle of Osawatomie (August 30). #union #yankee #confederate #civilwar #warbetweenthestates #truestories #supportourvetsofbothsides #war #abolition #abolitionists #famousabolitionists #federalgovernment

#TEMPESTTOSSED (#tempesttost): The struggle of the #shackled to breathe #free, #immigrants to find #safeharbor, #strangersinastrangeland to know #tolerance and #commonground. These are themes that drive much of the art of #AlonzoTroyHumphrey (@alonzohumphrey131), always rendered in the bold lines of a #Sharpie (@sharpie) that mirrors his convictions. While the artist often addresses these issues in contemporary settings -- lending a special #urgency to his work in a time when #families are being #drivenapart by what we consider to be #unconscionable policy (#Dreamers) -- Alonzo also reaches back into history. Here he  represents the Cuban #slaveship #LaAmistad, at the center of the 1839-41 case, which became a powerful symbol for American #abolitionists. #BlackHistoryMonth @ideaterhd

Harriet Tubman was an American abolitionist, humanitarian, and an armed scout and spy for the United States Army during the American Civil War. Born into slavery, Tubman escaped and subsequently made some thirteen missions to rescue approximately seventy enslaved people, family and friends,[2] using the network of antislavery activists and safe houses known as the Underground Railroad

Vicente Ramón Guerrero aka the "Negro Guerrero" (10 August 1782 – 14 February 1831) was one of the leading revolutionary generals of the Mexican War of Independence (1810–1821), he abolished slavery in Mexico (1829) and later served as 2nd President of Mexico.

Born poor to a Black-Indian family and growing up without formal schooling, he taught himself to read and write as he trained his troops in the Sierra Madre mountains. Throughout the war, Guerrero distinguished himself in many battles. Despite having few troops, he kept the rebellion alive through an extensive campaign of guerrilla warfare.

Historians refer to him as "the George
Washington and Abraham Lincoln of Mexico"  where he  is a national hero. Unfortunately, most Mexicans do not know of his African ancestry.

Calling all dancers!! Tag all the dancers you know!!! The Spirit of God ministered to my heart and told me to dance on tonight. As I began to intercede over my team here in MN by going into my room and dancing, we started seeing some major breakthrough. 
I am a firm believer that dance breaks chains. It says it in the word to dance before the Lord. I’ll place the scripture below. 
So I am calling on all dancers, I don’t care what kind of dance you do, just as every tongue and every tribe all praise the Lord, so will the dancers dance for Him. If you are a dancer or know a dancer, dance with me tonight. We are made of body, soul and spirit... so let’s armor up and use our body and soul and spirit to shift the atmosphere right now! 
And if you’re a dancer like I am, make a playlist that will break chains of the women we are reaching out to tonight who are in bondage. Bet the devil never thought he’d have to deal with this much on one night. Well SURPRISE! Women (and men) will not sit back and watch abuse and rape and trafficking happen. We will rise, we will not be still and we will dance, stomp and literally break off what is holding the captives down! Lets dance and see them get set free!!! “Give to the Lord the glory he deserves! Bring your offering and come into his presence. Dance for the Lord in all his holy splendor.”
‭‭1 Chronicles‬ ‭16:29‬ ‭NLT‬‬ “Praise him with the tambourine and dancing; praise him with strings and flutes!”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭150:4‬ ‭NLT‬‬ “And David danced before the Lord with all his might, wearing a priestly garment.”

So I am calling on all dancers, I don’t care what kind of dance you do, just as every tongue and every tribe all praise the Lord, so will the dancers dance for Him. If you are a dancer or know a dancer, dance with me tonight. We are made of body, soul and spirit... so let’s armor up and use our body and soul and spirit to shift the atmosphere right now! And if you’re a dancer like I am, make a playlist that will break chains of the women we are reaching out to tonight who are in bondage. Bet the devil never thought he’d have to deal with this much on one night. Well SURPRISE! Women (and men) will not sit back and watch abuse and rape and trafficking happen. We will rise, we will not be still and we will dance, stomp and literally break off what is holding the captives down! Lets dance and see them get set free!!! “Give to the Lord the glory he deserves! Bring your offering and come into his presence. Dance for the Lord in all his holy splendor.” ‭‭1 Chronicles‬ ‭16:29‬ ‭NLT‬‬ “Praise him with the tambourine and dancing; praise him with strings and flutes!” ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭150:4‬ ‭NLT‬‬ “And David danced before the Lord with all his might, wearing a priestly garment.” ‭‭2 Samuel‬ ‭6:14‬ ‭NLT‬‬ ⚔️🛡🔥💃🏻🗝⛓🔓 #Dance  #prophecy  #freedom  #survivor  #SetTheCaptivesFree  #AbolishSlaveryEverywhereForever  #Dancer  #Bible  #Truth  #PrayerChangesEverything  #Abolitionists  #brave  #BeTheOne  #EndItMovement  #JusticeAwakening  #pointeshoes  #rescue  #revivalist  #SlaveryStillExists  #Tribe21  #voiceforthevoiceless  #SFactor

Did you know that many of the founders of the Seventh-day Adventist Church were abolitionists?  J.N. Andrews, the first Adventist missionary to Europe boldly denounced slavery. Today, the Seventh-day Adventist church is the most diverse church in North America.

Vicente Ramón Guerrero aka the "Negro Guerrero" (10 August 1782 – 14 February 1831) was one of the leading revolutionary generals of the Mexican War of Independence (1810–1821), he abolished slavery in Mexico (1829) and later served as 2nd President of Mexico.

Born poor to a Black-Indian family and growing up without formal schooling, he taught himself to read and write as he trained his troops in the Sierra Madre mountains. Throughout the war, Guerrero distinguished himself in many battles. Despite having few troops, he kept the rebellion alive through an extensive campaign of guerrilla warfare.

Historians refer to him as "the George
Washington and Abraham Lincoln of Mexico"  where he  is a national hero. Unfortunately, most Mexicans do not know of his African ancestry.

“The mischief arises not from our living in the world,” says Hannah More, “but from the world living in us; occupying our hearts and monopolizing our affections.”
.
Today is the birth day of this not-so-well-known, yet important writer from John Newton and William Wilberforce’s time (actually, she was a close friend of theirs)—Hannah More.
.
"The queen’s sins [infidelity],” Hannah once wrote regretfully, “occupy my thoughts more than my own.” So true! The world hasn’t changed, or our human nature.
.
Read “Fierce Convictions” by Karen Prior for a wider look at the time of abolition in England, as well as more on this remarkable woman—the fashionable life she left and the influential role she played in England society.

I’m so grateful to be connected with the army of advocates working to eradicate human trafficking in our community.  Blessed to have led an insightful conversation on how this impacts our city today with the Greater Orlando Human Trafficking Task Force on the 10th Annual Human Trafficking Awareness Day.

Any #abolitionists going to the Texas State Capitol tomorrow? Abortion must be abolished. The #prolife movement regulates #murder. #abortionismurder and Christians can not dehumanize children by regulating their death.
Check out the @vugcwj #ensurejustice conference, #challenge March 2nd & 3rd. This year the distinguished speakers will discuss the connection between substance abuse and #humantrafficking. It's a must for #medicalprofessionals, #firstresponders, #educators and  #abolitionists. For early bird registration, click on link in bio.

When it comes to the Maafa and Chattel Slavery, historically there have been two perspectives. One is the Slaver propaganda perspective which was basically a marketing ploy to justify the new genocide economy of trafficking Africans across the Ethiopian Ocean. The Abolitionist perspective came from the true historical analysis of African nationalist trying to abolish the Maafa and chattel slavery all over the world. #EthiopianOcean #Slavers #Genocidaires #Genocideiros #Abolitionists #AfricanPerspective #theankhlife #economicwarfare #cowrieshells #AfricanCurrencies #EconomicHitmen

The next 5-10 years will see Trump’s re-election and the Supreme Court’s overturning of the legalization of abortion in the US. But I leave you with this personal prayer for the safeguarding of innocent life. It’s from the pro-life bracelet that I wear every day, a band of images detailing the development stages of a fetus (from a zygote) to a full-term baby. It has this connected intercession on the back of the square beads: “Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, I love you very much. Jesus, I beg you, spare the life of the unborn baby that I have spiritually adopted. Who is in danger of abortion. Amen.” Tomorrow, the 22nd of January, shall from hereon be federally observed as the National Sanctity of Human Life Day (thanks Facebook), inaugurated by President Trump. Behind a fearless leader for the abolitionists’ cause of the extermination of the exterminating of children, we see victories splashed in the pained colors of freedom of living and freedom of eternal exchange. God bless the Holy Innocents.

"Self Portrait" 1885 by
Ellen Day Hale

Self avowed "New Woman," Ellen Day Hale (1855-1940), came from an influential Boston family with powerful role models such as her great aunt Harriet Beecher Stowe and abolitionist father Minister Edward Everett Hale.
She formally studied art at the Pennsylvannia Academy of Fine Arts and then in London and at the Academie Julian in Paris. The most prestigious art school in Paris, the Ecole des Beaux Arts did not accept women as students until 1897.
Hale was considered an impressionist and a member of the "Boston School." She exhibited widely but was perhaps most influential as a mover in reviving etching in the arts and as an powerful mentor to the upcoming generation of women artists.

In honor of MLK Day an ode to Phillis Wheatley...... Phillis Wheatley, 1753-1784, was kidnapped from West Africa at age seven and bought by a wealthy Boston family. A sickly but obviously talented child too weak to be much help as a domestic servant, the family educated her. Though continuing to enslave her, they promoted her work and found ways to publish it. She became well known in America for her classically and religiously inspired poems, elegies and broadsides. The colonies were not entirely receptive to the work of slave, so the Wheatley family took her to London where she was introduced to society and embraced by activists and abolitionists. The book shown here was published in 1773. Phillis Wheatley is believed to be "the first black poet in America to publish a book."
The Wheatleys did not emancipate Phillis until three years before Mrs. Wheatley's death. Phillis married, had children and continued to pursue her writing but her life ended in struggle and poverty at age 31.
