TEACH! SHARE YOUR KNOWLEDGE AND YOUR WEALTH! EDUCATE! UPLIFT! SPEAK THE TRUTH! MORE MUHAMMAD ALI TO THE PEOPLE ✊🏾✊🏾✊🏾
.
/repost @rootsoffight Ali knew where he was going and he wasn’t afraid to speak his mind on race, religion or politics. This may have made him a controversial figure at the time but, history has proven him to be a revolutionary and inspirational Icon who played an instrumental part in shaping the world and popular culture. The heavyweight was also known for having a way with quick witted quips and taunts that were as fast and cutting as his fists. 
@muhammadali was stripped of his heavyweight championship and banned from boxing for three years during the prime of his career, for standing up for his beliefs. Sacrifice is a hallmark of Ali's legacy. He never stopped giving and using his voice to help the voiceless. Despite deteriorating health, #Ali would remain in the public spotlight, traveling the world to make humanitarian, goodwill & charitable appearances. He was also named Sportsman of the Century by Sports Illustrated. There can only be one person known simply as #TheGreatest #BlackHistoryMonth #KnowYourRoots #RootsofFight

I will be a guest on WABC-TV's Here and Now with Sandra Bookman on Sunday, February 25th at 12:00pm 
EST. I got the chance to tell Ms. Bookman about Ossie Davis 100: the year-long centennial celebration of 
Dad’s 100th birthday as well as their Grammy-winning audiobook "With Ossie and Ruby: In This Life 
Together." The best part was being able to talk about Mom and Dad as parents and to remind folks (and 
introduce others) to their unwavering dedication to the People and the Struggle. Their inspiration and voices 
are needed now, and it’s so humbling be able to share the legacy that they left for all of us. 
I’m the only one who’s on Here and Now, but all three of us will be on Arise 360 with Shannon LaNier and 
Keturah King this Tuesday, February 27th at 3 PM EST on BET’s Centric. It will really be a family affair 
when Nora, Guy, and I tell our stories together. I hope you can join us then too!! –Hasna. 
Thanks @bydimples @jackiemakeup_and_more and @rstew81. For everything Ossie and Ruby, please visit

“I’ll tell you what freedom means to me. No fear.” -Nina Simone
•
Eunice Kathleen Waymon, who went by her stage name of Nina Simone, was a musical artist prominent during the Civil Rights Era. Her style included jazz, blues, folk, gospel, R&B, and pop - though in her own words, she played “black classical music.” Miss Simone was classically trained in piano at Juilliard, but she was known for her improvisation during performances. 👉🏾 once to see a photo of her and just one example of her incredible style 😍👌🏾
•
Miss Nina Simone was also an activist and protestor, particularly during the Civil Rights Movement. She would often perform at Movement events such as the march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama. Three of her songs have become rather famous as protest songs: “Four Women,” “To Be Young, Gifted, and Black,” and perhaps the most famous - and most controversial, especially for the time period - “Mississippi Goddamn.” If you’ve never heard the music of #NinaSimone, please do yourself a favor and give her a listen, especially those three songs. I definitely recommend watching/listening to her live performances over studio recordings when available. “What Happened, Miss Simone?” is also a pretty fabulous documentary on her life if you’re interested in learning more about her.

And as a #letteringupdate, I’ve been practicing a new lettering style lately: #ribbonlettering! They’re very fun to make, rather easy, and I love the way they look. I first came across this style via @simonsaysletter, but I also learned a lot from  @carlisdivyadesign’s #ribbonlettersbycarlis posts! Thank you both for opening the door to such a fabulous style for me! 💖 | 👉🏾 two and/or three times for close-ups of the #ribbonletters ☺️

One of the most beautiful parts about the #civilrightsmovement of the 60s was how so many people came together...gay and straight, young and old, black and white, and able-bodied and physically limited and so many more.
There's still so much more yet to be done.

#OBK took a Saturday 🚌trip to the @motonmuseum #museum in @lynchburgva learning about the #history behind the famous walk out and how it impacted the #civilrightsmovement in the Brown v Board of #Education response of massive resistance, modeled here in #Virginia @visitvirginia #Lynchburg #BlackHistory @black_._history
It doesn't matter how many like this gets just know ,this day was one of the most inspirational days of my life #iamman #blackhistorymonth #blackgirlpower #civilrightsmovement @jaymayforlife
There are a lot of stories here. One that could highlight the tragic irony of a non violent leader being assassinated. One of the first African American President of the United States... and this glorious fro. One of the unity demonstrated during the Montgomery bus boycotts. One of the countless individuals willing to sacrifice so much for the betterment of a people. One that could highlight an artist’s struggle and perseverance(Google Alexander Austin). & certainly one of the unapologetic gentrification of this neighborhood. -

This is my dad’s fourth grade class in Florida in 1972. It took until 1972 to integrate the schools in his district. He was bussed to another school across town while kids from that school were bussed to his neighborhood. And THIS is what people were so terrified of. This. The kids look happy and loved and their teacher is absolutely adorable. I wonder what a positive impact this black teacher must have had on my dad at such a young age. He became a teacher and a principal and now he is a superintendent. (Can you guess which one he is? Far left, 3rd row up, dressed in all blue). I am passionate about schools because they are so often the catalyst for change, the litmus test of our values as a nation. I am so proud to be an American public school teacher, and an advocate for equal opportunities for children. ✊🏼 #blackhistorymonth #civilrightsmovement #historyofeducation #pinellascentralelementary #floridaschools

On December 1, 1955, in Montgomery, Alabama Parks refused to obey bus driver James F. Blake's order to give up her seat in the "colored section" to a white passenger, after the whites-only section was filled. Parks was not the first person to resist bus segregation. Others had taken similar steps, including Bayer Rustin in 1942, Irene Morgan in 1946, Lillie. Mae Bradford in 1951, Sarah Louise Keys in 1952, and the members of the ultimately successful Browder v. Gayle1956 lawsuit (Claudette Covin, Aurelia Browder, Susie McDonald, and Mary Louise Smith) who were arrested in Montgomery for not giving up their bus seats months before Parks. NAACP organizers believed that Parks was the best candidate for seeing through a court challenge after her arrest for civil disobedience in violating Alabama segregation laws, although eventually her case became bogged down in the state courts while the Browder v. Gayle case succeeded.

Yesterday, February 23, late afternoon, 1968. “One Long Day”

In what became known to some as “The Mace March,” the daily newspapers reported “Squad Car Rocked - Police Use Mace” and “Angry Sanitation Workers Clash With Police While Marching Downtown”. Both papers blamed the fracas on angry strikers who “turned on their escorting police officers near Main and Gayoso,” and on Union local president T.O. Jones - “a heavyset Negro” The CA said - as the ones starting the conflict. The workers were indeed angry, angry because of a Council Resolution voted on that afternoon “that was not the resolution agreed to earlier in the week; Men roared in disapproval, on their feet, shouting and shaking their fists.” However, the papers missed - or misreported - an important fact: marchers began rocking the squad car because, in slowly crowding the marchers, the escorting squad car ran over the foot of Gladys Carpenter, a part-time City Council employee. “In seconds,” The Commercial Appeal said, “the officers were out of their cars and on top of them, squirting Mace cans. Other officers waded thru the crowd around the second police car with night sticks.” Both papers reported the fracas as brief, with officers acting “quickly with mace and night sticks to restore order.” However dozens of workers showed up later at the Mason Temple - “the march had to go on” - reeking of Mace fumes, the liquid clinging to their clothes, their eyes still burning and watery. “They sure did treat us bad.” 1 - “Squad Car Rocked - Police Use Mace”
2 - Press-Scimitar letters in support of Mayor, but also in defense of garbage collectors
3 - PS letter that reads in part “The people of Memphis know what’s going on… I am with the Negroes all the way.”
4 - “Today’s Pickup Area”, day 2 of a test project in speedy garbage pickup by hired, non-union sanitation crews
5 - PS: 9-4 Vote By Council Backs Mayor
6 - The CA: “Angry Sanitation Workers Clash With Police While Marching Downtown”
7 - “Police Use Mace On Sanitation Marchers At Main And Gayoso”
8 - CA Editorial “The March On Main”
9 - “One Long Day” downtown map
10- CA Cartoon, “Added To The Heap”

#BlackHistory is not limited to one month. #Activism is not limited to one era or even one week. It is a long journey, a long fight to change #cementedstubborninds that are firmly rooted in either #bigotry or ignorance to what they believe or perpetuate. Hate does not go away in a minute and it grows and grows and grows when you do not take the time to fight it. Honored that I got to see #AndrewYoung and #BernardLafayette speak at the #Skirball the other night bc they inspired me to be who i am today. And no, #RosaParks was not a one hit wonder. #civilrightsmovement #BlackLivesMatter #Activist

Her launch into worldwide stardom began at the Midtown Bar & Grill in Atlantic City in 1954. After auditioning to sing, word spread that an incredible singer and pianist was performing there and she soon gained the attention of record label execs. She signed to Bethlehem Records at the age of 24, but the deal was short lived. After next signing with Colpix Rdcords, it became apparent that Nina was an energetic and engaging live performer and Colpix decided to record her live performances. .

As a civil rights activist, Nina wasn’t afraid to use music as a vehicle for social commentary and change. During this time Nina recorded ‘Mississippi Goddamn’ after the murder of Medger Evers and the Alabama Church bombing as well as ‘Four Women’ and ‘Strange Fruit’. Soon after, her protest songs were boycotted and Nina’s career suffered as a result. .
.
I HIGHLY recommend watching the documentary ‘What Happened Miss Simone?’ on Netflix if you haven’t already 💫

I wasn’t gonna say anything, but y’all know me by now. I’ve been torn about folks, especially people of color, ignoring the FULL history of @billygraham . Sure he was a popular preacher who traveled the globe evangelizing; however, he was silent on racism for many years, preached at segregated crusades and told Dr. King the march on Washington wasn’t a good idea. Even though he later said things that suggested being a racist wasn’t right, He was NOT critical of systemic racism and King told him. Graham felt if he just got folks converted things would take care of themselves - but be clear, the KKK identifies as Christian! When laws are constructed to oppress people, you have to preach against those laws! And if his son, Franklin Graham is any indication of the families position on racism, they have a lot of work to do!  You can’t preach Jesus and not preach Justice! Happy Saturday! #billygraham #socialjustice #blacklivesmatter #racism #systemicoppression #christians #christianity #civilrightsmovement #civilrights #martinlutherking #evangelicals #whiteevangelicals #silenceiscompliance #silenceiscomplicity #whitesilence

Ruby Bridges (September 8, 1954) was six when she became the first African-American child to integrate a white Southern elementary school. She was escorted to classes by her mother and U.S. marshals due to violent mobs. #happyblackhistorymonth✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿 #civilrightsmovement #shero #motivateinspireeducate
A brief post in honor of the recent passing of a legend, and his contribution to the civil rights movement.

On these wooden floors nailed to the front porch of an Atlanta home in the 1930's Martin Luther King Jr played, ran and grew with no notion that he was moving each day closer to changing the world into a more equal and just place.

Normal homes raise amazing people, took a moment this week to stop at MLK's birthplace and tomb in Atlanta, GA. It's an emotional and inspiring experience - important to remember where we were, how we got here, and how we must continue our betterment.
