TODAY in Black Film History ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
SAPPHIRE
Released April 21, 1959 London, England ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
British director Basil Deaden is much like American director Stanley Kramer, who was often singled out for making “message films.” Sapphire is no exception due to the way it tackles the issue of racial prejudice in Great Britain in the late 1950s, but in the guise of a conventional murder mystery. The picture traces the killing of Sapphire Robbins, a beautiful 21-year-old black woman on London’s Hampstead Heath whose light-colored skin allowed her to pass as white. As the investigation unfolds, a complex portrait of Sapphire emerges. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Today I delivered the last African History of Sports Family Workshop at the Petrie Museum. Today we focussed on Aquatics. Brought along my 3 empresses with me who enjoyed colouring in and walking around the museum. We even looked in the draws at artefacts hidden away. #AfricanHistoryOfSport #Aquatics #PetrieMuseum #AfricanHistory #FamilyFun

Highly recommend this book to anyone interested in African history. A fantastic personal account of life in Rwanda pre and post genocide. Land of a Thousand Hills by Rosamond Carr #rwanda #africa #books #reading #africanhistory #rosamundcarr #landofathousandhills

When European children of this age are busy in science labs researching for the next scientific breakthrough, African children are being convinced to speak in tongues for miracles to happen in their lives.
At a time that American children are being taught Advanced Mathematics & Engineering to probe the underseas & space, African children are advised to learn to speak in tongues for financial breakthrough.
At a time that Chinese & Indian Children this age are busy engaging in New Management & Technological studies to enhance their development & improve their lives, African children are being coached to speak in tongues to be able to solve simple arithmetics.
At a time that little school children in Japan & South Korea are being taught Advanced Engineering, Robotics, Construction Techniques & Modern Farming Techniques to be able to improve their nation's net worth, African children are being trained to speak in tongues to ward off the devil.
When will African children get to realise that religion is just politics and business??? - @deepeacemaker

Trevor Noah laying it down

The architect of Basilique Notre-Dame de la Paix was Pierre Fakhoury, who is of Lebanese-descent but born and based in Côte d’Ivoire. Each of the 7,000 seats has a dedicated air-conditioning unit. While most of the interior features art pieces made by foreign artists, there are a few exceptions, notably a wooden carving of Mary with striking African features and ambiguous facial expression, made by an Ivorian prisoner (unfortunately, no photographs were allowed).
