FOREVER IN OUR HEARTS: HAPPY BIRTHDAY #EMMETTTILL!!!
Emmett Louis Till was an young black boy who was murdered in #Mississippi at the age of 14 after reportedly flirting with a white woman.

Till was from #ChicagoIllinois. At the time, he was visiting his relatives in #MoneyMississippi, when he spoke to 21-year-old #CarolynBryant, the married proprietor of a small grocery store there. Several nights later, Bryant’s husband Roy and his half-brother, J. W. Milam, arrived at Till’s great-uncle’s house where they took Till, transported him to a barn, beat him, and gouged out one of his eyes. He was shot through the head and his body, along with a 70-pound cotton gin fan tied around his neck with barbed wire, was disposed of in the Tallahatchie River. Till’s body was discovered and retrieved from the river three days later.

Till was returned to Chicago and his mother, who had raised him mostly by herself, insisted on a public funeral service with an open casket to show the world the brutality of the killing. Tens of thousands of mourners attended his funeral or viewed his casket. Images of his mutilated body were published in black magazines and newspapers, rallying popular black support and white sympathy across the U.S. Intense scrutiny was brought to bear on the condition of #blackcivilrights in Mississippi, with newspapers around the country critical of the state.

Although initially local newspapers & law enforcement officials decried the violence against Till & called for justice, they soon began responding to national criticism by defending Mississippians, which eventually transformed into support for the killers. #reconstructingourafricanminds #africanhistory #blackhistory #BlackEmpowerment #

Lee-directed film features #ReginaHall, #JadaPinkettSmith, #TiffanyHaddish and #QueenLatifah who portray a group of friends catching up on life during a trip to #NewOrleans for the #EssenceFestival. Girls Trip has become the 2017 'Sex and the City' as many black women have flocked to theaters with their girlfriends to support the film.

All of the support that the film has garnered has allowed it to become the largest grossing live action comedy this year! Girls Trip has reportedly pulled in about $30.4 million domestically and it cost just under $20 million to produce it.

“Funny is funny. And it’s a really funny movie,” Universal’s President of Domestic Distribution Nick Carpou said. "Our four leads are excellent. If they make you laugh you’re likely to tell your friends. That’s what’s happening here." Compare the success of 'Girls Trip' to that of what consumers dubbed its white counterpart, 'Rough Night'.

Today in #blackhistory Andrew Titus heard you had the fever for the flavor.

Damn. Bobby Shmurda and the late Bobby Hutton could've been brothers. Two black kids-different times and different paths. One with an early ending, the other with a rough beginning. Who was YOUR twin and what were they doing? #history #blackhistory #bobbyshmurda #bobbyhutton #blackpanther #panther #black #brothers #sad

Wealthy blacks lag behind wealthy whites primarily because for hundreds of years, whites have stolen wealth from black people and continue to deny us access to capital. Many blacks in the south, for example, had their land stolen from them by racist whites who lived above the law and would either kill blacks to take their property, jail them or run them off of their territory. To this day, this land is worth billions, if not trillions, of dollars and this property is in the hands of whites. The government has yet to remedy the wrongs done in the past.
 Black Americans should realize that one important pathway to building wealth is to get away from the addictive temptation of working for white people. The best way to get rich in America is to a) own your own business and b) get involved in the stock market. Start small and never fall for the get-rich-quick mindset being promoted in media. When you are an owner, you can get ahead in a capitalist society. You can never achieve equality#Queens#Kings#Egypt #BlackQueens#BlackHistory #DivineIntuition #blackspendingpower#BlackPower #AncientKemet #BlackConsciousness #Nigeria#blackunity#blackbusiness #newblackculture

Piggybacking on yesterday's post, IP Reynolds Elementary was built in 1958, as a fruition of efforts from the Reynoldstown Civic Improvement League to construct a school for African-American children

It was done in the 'international style' of architecture and today functions as a community center

There is a museum like no other in #Philadelphia. You would not have heard it, it is not listed anywhere and there are no signs from the motorway. Only the hand carved wooden sign in the garden hinted that the Victorian house was not like any other home in the world – and the woman who opened the door had the smile of someone who knew she was about to amaze you.

For years Vashti Dubois was sick of not seeing any images of black girls or women in museums and art galleries, so three years ago she decided to do something about it. The 56-year-old turned her house into #TheColoredGirlsMuseum, celebrating everything about #blackwomen and their place in the universe. Standing in the hallway, which screams with colour due to every inch being painted, she said: ‘If things ain’t right you got to make them right, and if you can change things, you gotta change them.’ After opening one room to the public, she decided to turn her bedroom, the bathroom, the kitchen and her son’s bedroom into art galleries. Dubois said: ‘There are a lot of museums about a lot of different things, so we thought there should be one about the colored girl because there are no places that look at their experiences. We want to show who she is in her day-to-day life as a sister, a lover, a friend, an artist, a victim. We want to show that if there were no coloured girls, the system would collapse.’ As well as the museum’s collection of artefacts, paintings, dolls, textiles and sculptures, artists take over rooms and spaces for art installations. At first Dubois sought the help of artists she knew personally – but word soon spread, and soon she was being contacted by some of the world’s best upcoming artists. #VashtiDubois #ReconstructingOurAfricanMinds #blackhistory #blackexcellence #blackisbeautiful #melanin #africanculture #blackgirlmagic #UnapologeticallyBlack #unapologeticallyafrican #melaninqueens
