Regardless of how you feel about him, you gotta admit, Barack Obama made history during his terms. Just to name a few: -Passed Fair Sentencing Act
-Pushed Federal Agencies to Be more Environmentally Friendly
-Reformed Wall Street
-Reformed Health Care
-Passed the Stimulus for more jobs & guided the country out of the greatest recession since the Depression (All while avoiding scandal during both terms) #HoodVersions#BHMedition
Let us not forget the sacrifices made by those who came before us!
Thank you, we are forever in your debt and you will never be forgotten!
Know YOUR HISTORY and not just HIS-STORY:
1968 Olympics, Tommie Smith and John Carlos.

God's laws was only given to a certain race of people, HIS PEOPLE.
19 He sheweth his word unto Jacob, his statutes and his judgments unto Israel (12 tribes)
20 👉 He hath not dealt so with any nation (race)👈 : and as for his judgments, they have not known them. Praise ye the LORD.
HIS PEOPLE were prophesied to go into slavery amongst the other races and worship their gods or religions
And the Lord shall scatter thee among all people, from the one end of the earth even unto the other (slave trade); and there thou shalt serve other gods, which neither thou nor thy fathers have known, even WOOD (cross/christianity) and STONE (kaaba/islam)
Even Christ talked about the children of israel going into slavery amongst all races and false people will be living in Israel until the real black messiah returns to gather HIS PEOPLE back.
And THEY (children of Israel) shall fall by the edge of the sword, and 👉 SHALL BE LED AWAY CAPTIVE INTO ALL NATIONS👈 : and JERUSALEM SHALL BE TRODDEN DOWN OF THE GENTILES (je-WISH/Arabs), UNTIL the TIMES of the Gentiles be FULFILLED (meaning the real Israelites WILL NOT be in ISRAEL until Christ's return)
So if the wrong people have been teaching you your own book, Will they teach you right especially if the true gospel brings their destruction?? That is why you go to church on SUN-day when the bible clearly says the 7th day is the sabbath and you celebrate holidays that are not in the bible in church. When they forced their religions on us, it was the antichrist.
REPENT YE THEREFORE, and BE CONVERTED (renew your minds and keep the laws), that your SINS may be BLOTTED OUT, when the TIMES OF REFRESHING (second coming) shall come from the presence of the Lord.
You can't be perfect in something you refuse to study and practice.
Reposted from everymikkleja - Anton de Kom (Cornelis Gerhard Anton de Kom) was a Surinamese author, anti-colonial activist, trade unionist, and World War IIresistance fighter. De Kom was born in Paramaribo, Suriname, a colony of the Netherlands, on February 22, 1898 to a former slave and farmer Adolf de Kom and a free woman Judith Jacoba Dulder.
In 1920, de Kom moved to Haiti and worked at the Societé Commerciale Hollandaise Transatlantique (Dutch Transatlantic Trading Company). Several months later, he sailed to the Netherlands where he volunteered for a year in the Dutch military. Outside of his work, he engaged in leftist politics and activities, often affiliating with leftish groups that opposed European imperialism and fascism. He then began to pursue an independent Suriname.
De Kom soon challenged the colonial administration by arming workers with information about their rights and organizing a strong united front with the workers. On February 1, 1933, he marched with a crowd of followers toward the governor’s office. Authorities arrested De Kom and charged him with attempting to overthrow the government. He was immediately imprisoned for three months in Fort Zeeland. Hundreds of people rallied to the jail resulting in an uprising. Preempting further labor disturbances, the government deported de Kom back to the Netherlands where he was welcomed back as a hero by Dutch communists and other supporters.
Today, his role in the achievement of an independent Republic of Suriname in 1954 is commemorated throughout the country with a premier university, Anton De Kom University, and street in Paramaribo named in his honor. His image is engraved on Suriname’s currency and, in the Netherlands, a statue was erected in his honor. #AntonDeKom#Suriname#Caribbean#Surinamese#Hero#Black#BlackHistory#BlackHistoryMonth#Activist#Leader#Independence#Pioneer#Author#BlackMan#AfroDutch#Instagood
Reposted from everymikkleja - Aoua Keita (1912-1980) was a Malian midwife and anti-colonial activist. Born in Bamako, she won admission to the city’s first girls’ school in 1923. She went on to study midwifery at the Dakar School of Medicine, graduating in 1931. A member of the African Democratic Rally (RDA), she contributed to establishing women’s wings within the party, and was placed in charge of electoral campaign literature in the various posts to which she was sent as a midwife in the civil service.
In 1958, she was named as the RDA’s Commissioner for Women, and the following year was elected to Parliament, thereby becoming the first woman from French-speaking West Africa to be elected to the national legislative assembly of her country. In 1956, in parallel to her political activities, Aoua Keita set up a women’s trade union, and later participated in the creation of a Panafrican women’s organization.
Fighting for an improvement in the living conditions of African women, she was instrumental in the drafting and eventual enactment of the Marriage and Guardianship Code (1962), which afforded new rights to women in Mali. #AouaKeita#Mali#Malian#African#Woman#Black#BlackHistory#BlackHistoryMonth#BlackGirlMagic#Fighter#Politician#Midwife#CallTheMidwife#Activist#Feminist#Hero#Shero#Instagood#Leader#ThankYou#First
day 17 of 30-day song challenge:
‘a song you’d sing a duet with someone on karaoke’
(*a song you’d sing as a duet at karaoke) @teganandsara#livingroom
i can’t believe i haven’t seen #teganandsara live. they have been one of my favorite bands for a long time now. i think it would be really fun to sing one of their songs as a duet at karaoke because their harmonies are amazing. i even have an idea of how each singer could coordinate separate #airguitar moves, keyboard jamming, or in this case banjo picking.
. #blackhistorymonth pick: ( #motown week) @dianaross (and #thesupremes ) #somedaywellbetogether
it’s funny how we learn about things. my first memory of #dianaross was a (in my childhood memory) ‘silly’ song about #stopinthenameoflove (🛑 ❤️😂 ) ;
i thought that was hilarious. then the next time her name was on my radar was when michael jackson was supposedly ‘trying’ to surgically resemble her (kids say the darndest things!). naturally what followed that was years of hearing #dianarossandthesupremes songs and appreciating them, if not loving them, until i FINALLY heard her voice. it nearly knocked me over when i first heard ‘someday...’, and now i buy every used LP i can find that has #someday on it.
stop in the name of love, indeed. ❤️
honorable mention: @charliewadhams#letsduet
this dude is bad! keep it up, charlie, and see you out there again someday. 🤘

Reposted from everymikkleja - Chief Funmilayo Ransome-Kuti, October 1900 – 13 April 1978, otherwise known as Funmilayo Anikulapo-Kuti, was a teacher, political campaigner, women's rights activist and traditional aristocrat in Nigeria. She served with distinction as one of the most prominent leaders of her generation. She was also the first woman in the country to drive a car. Ransome-Kuti's political activism led to her being described as the doyen of female rights in Nigeria, as well as to her being regarded as "The Mother of Africa." Early on, she was a very powerful force advocating for the Nigerian woman's right to vote. She was described in 1947, by the West African Pilot, as the "Lioness of Lisabi" for her leadership of the women of the Egba people on a campaign against their arbitrary taxation. That struggle led to the abdication of the high king Oba Ademola II in 1949.
Kuti was the mother of the Nigerian activists Fela Anikulapo Kuti, a musician; Beko Ransome-Kuti, a doctor; and Professor Olikoye Ransome-Kuti, a doctor and health minister. #Funmilayo#Kuti#MotherOfAfrica#African#Nigerian#Queen#Chief#Activist#Leader#First#Feminist#Equality#Warrior#Mother#Black#BlackHistory#BlackHistoryMonth#BlackGirlMagic#NailedIt#Instagood#RoleModel
Movie: Poetic Justice
Director: John Singleton
Watched Via: @starz
My Rating: 5/5
Janet Jackson, Tupac, box braids nuff said! The Queen Janet Jackson gives me life and she rocked the hell out of those box braids too (Yaaasssssssssss bih!). I must admit that this was my first time watching Poetic Justice 🙈. Don’t revoke my black card lol. I really enjoyed this classic. It showed the crazy Cali life culture and daily life challenges that people still face today. In the movie Justice (Janet Jackson) and Lucky (Tupac) embark on a road trip in a mail truck (that’s got to be against company policy), so what could possibly go wrong?! 🤷🏾♀️ lol. How about EVERYTHING. Friendships are tested, a police shooting, love, sex, hating for no reason, gin, Old E. This movie also gave us one of the best memes ever from Tupac in the scene where they all crashed a black family reunion BBQ (the food looked bussin 😋). The music in this movie was dope. I mean you have Janet and Tupac in the movie so of course it’s dope. I was definitely concern about the display of parenting skills 😳. The amazingly talented Regina King was awesome in my eyes in this movie. I also loved Mya Angelou’s scenes and her monologue. However, like most movies in the 90s it ended in the very typical fashion where the dude says he’s sorry for being a huge asshole and the chick instantly forgives him 🙄 lol. But that’s what the people wanted so that’s what they gave them. Overall I really enjoyed this movie and glad I finally watched it. Who out there has seen this movie? Did you like it or nah? Give your thoughts on the movie in the comments below. .

If you haven’t already, check out the film based on James Baldwin’s writings, “I Am Not Your Negro.” Baldwin’s work is difficult, luminous, and bracing. Every American would do well to read it.

As we continue our historic American journey, we realize what we were taught and what our children are currently being taught in school is not only incorrect, it's incomplete, which makes the real story of America boring. In fact, the blanched anecdotes we pass of for American history are merely examples of good publicity, painting white men of antiquity as go-getting, patriotic, innovators who do what they do in the name of God and democracy. The truth is much more nuanced and complex.
For example, George Washington, yes, the guy on the quarter, the dollar bill, and the nations first president, was not the virtuous and honorable man we were taught he was. He never cut down a cherry tree when he was a kid, as his biographer, Parson Weems, wanted everyone to believe so he could sell books. And George Washington's dentures of wooden teeth were real human teeth, the teeth of slaves. Oh yes, George Washington was a slave owner, which brings us to the subject at hand, Ms. Ona Judge.
You see, she didn't care that General Washington was now President Washington of the newly formed United States of America, she wanted to be free. So she escaped. "Oney 'Ona' Judge, known as Oney Judge Staines after marriage, was born about 1773 at Mount Vernon. Her mother, Betty, was an enslaved woman who worked as a seamstress; her father, Andrew Judge, was an English tailor working as an indentured servant at Mount Vernon - he, according to historian Erica Dunbar, was the man that made Washington’s military uniform, according to the manager’s account book for Mount Vernon. Oney had a half-brother, Austin (c. 1757 – December 1794), and later a half-sister, Delphy (c. 1779 – December 13, 1831).
