One of my fav artifacts at @nmaahc is Frederick Douglass's walking stick. It's too fresh and I would love a replica. He carved his life story into this cane. Brilliant! We must write and document our own stories. #nmaahc #abolitionist #blacknerd #blackhistorymatters

Sojourner Truth born Isabella("Bell") Baumfree; c. 1797 – November 26, 1883) 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, in 1828 she became the first black woman to win such a case against a white man.

She gave herself the name Sojourner Truth in 1843 after she became convinced that God has called her to leave the city and go into the countryside "testifying the hope that was in her." Her best-known speech was delivered extemporaneously, in 1851, at the Ohio Women's Rights Convention in Akron, Ohio. The speech became widely known during the Civil War by the title "Ain't I a Woman?," a variation of the original speech re-written by someone else using a stereotypical Southern dialect; whereas Sojourner Truth was from New York and grew up speaking Dutch as her first language. During the Civil War, Truth helped recruit black troops for the Union Army; after the war, she tried unsuccessfully to secure land grants from the federal government for former slaves.

In 2014, Truth was included in Smithsonian magazine's list of the "100 Most Significant Americans of All Time". #Abolitionist #Author #HumanRightsActivist #WomensHistoryMonth2017

I am currently reading a book written by James W. Loewen entitled "Lies My Teacher Told Me- Everything Your American History Textbook Got Wrong"⠀

And let me tell you! It has sparked something in me. I understand even more the depth in which WE ALL have been mislead. OUR history has been distorted to ensure that those in power remain in control.❕

. . . and because of this WE the people pay the largest cost. 💯

Ignorance and hate of others [even sometimes our self] is becoming dominate in today's society. We see it everywhere! From the outrageous number of young black girls turning up missing around the US without any national TV coverage to London's parliament attack this past week. 💡

Something has to change. But where do we start?⠀
On my journey I have decided to step back and evaluate the facts. It started with educating myself on the REAL history of the world. 🌍

Let's stop believing what we are told and start seeking truth for ourselves. Expose. . . then evaluate. . . to eventually Evolve.💫

85/365 love the story of John Newton and also of the influence that he had on William Wilberforce and the fight for the abolition of slavery #365photos #365photochallenge #project365 #project365days #amazinggrace #johnnewton #abolition #abolitionist #williamwilberforce #hymns

That's William Wilberforce. Born in this house in Hull and, when MP for Hull, abolished slavery throughout the British Empire #williamwilberforce #hull #abolitionist
