OOOHHHHHH THIS WOMAN! If you know me you know how deep my love for this woman goes( I have her tattooed on my arm) When I told my mom I wanted to be a performer she made sure to educate me on woman of color in this field. I remember being in the third grade doing book report on her while my peers were doing new kids on the block. She's paved the way for black performers, she was the first person of color to become a world-famous entertainer. She was an activist and also helped aiding the French in WWII. I could go on and on! I love you Josephine Baker _________________________________________________#adeamichelle#joesphinebaker#blackperformers#blackhistory#nyc#performer#activist

The black race was once told that for them to be considered equal to other races they would have to learn to read and write. Those who made that proclamation did so for degradation not knowing that they had actually set the black race on a quest to equip themselves with one of life's most powerful tools.

Knowledge breaks down racial barriers first in the mind and then in our actions.

Knowledge knows no race or color it only knows how to expand the thoughts of the mind for better.

Knowledge tends to associate with wisdom which allows humility to conquer the soul and inner-peace to occupy the one who has garnered such mind tools.

Knowledge has its root in the past, the present, the future, and even in the unknown that it can be discovered. And if all those factors are combined, it will resonate a path of greatness for that individual life's journey.

Once you have acquired knowledge no one can take it away from you because it will make a lasting imprint in your mind.

Knowledge liberates the mind from ignorance and shines brightly for you to see yourself greater than any thought or vision others might have of you.

Knowledge opens the mind to a life and world of unlimited possibilities.

Many have fought and died for what we now can access with a tap of our fingers. Use your time productively to ensure you build on one of life's greatest tools - Knowledge.

(repost via Denene Millner on FB) What I didn't know about Frederick Douglass: before he married the white woman who gets all the credit for supporting him and his work, he was married to Anna Douglass, a Black woman who got him free (literally) and spent 44 years as his dutiful wife, even and especially when he didn't deserve it. Say HER name: Anna Murray-Douglass. "By the late 1840s Anna lost much of her emotional support system. Her daughter, Rosetta, was away at school in Albany, New York; and her friend and household helper, Harriet Bailey, had married and moved to Springfield, Massachusetts.
Meanwhile, her husband toured England, where rumors spread about the attention lavished on him by the English ladies. After his return in 1847 Douglass moved the family to Rochester, New York, taking Anna away from the small but active black community of which she had been a part in Lynn. Shortly thereafter she suffered the indignity of having the British reformer Julia Griffiths move into the Douglass home, which caused a storm of controversy alleging Frederick’s infidelity with Griffiths.
The departure of Griffiths was followed by the arrival of Ottilie Assing, who installed herself in the Douglass home for several months out of the year over the next twenty years. For much of her life Anna lived isolated from supportive African American companionship while hosting a string of white abolitionists who could barely conceal their disdain for her. Only the extended stays of Rosetta and her children and the companionship of Louisa Sprague, Rosetta’s sister-in-law who lived in the Douglass home as a housekeeper, relieved Anna’s loneliness.

Nevertheless, Anna understood her husband’s role in fighting slavery and her role as his helpmate. She took pride in her husband’s appearance and accomplishments and in keeping a well-ordered home. She continued to take an active part in operation of the household, even after Douglass had become wealthy enough to hire servants until she died .

More and more Hidden Figures are being revealed.
From NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center:

HBCU Alumni of Alabama A&M University, Jeanette Scissum. With a Bachelor's and Master's in Mathematics, she worked as a space scientist in the Space Environment Branch in NASA Marshall's Space Sciences Laboratory and led research activities in Marshall's Atmospheric, Magnetospheric and Plasmas. Jeanette also published a NASA report titled, "Survey of Solar Cycle Prediction Models," that helped to improved forecasting of the sunspot cycle. She was also a computer systems analyst responsible for analyzing and directing NASA management information and technical support systems. She believed that adequate and meaningful communication were key in order to resolve differences among peers and published those thoughts for the National Technical Association. A Hidden Figure..Revealed!

Throwback Thursday’s: Gumboot dancing comes from South African slaves who worked in the gold mines during the migrant labor system and oppressive Apartheid Laws in the 1800's. During this time, workers were separated from their families and forced to work in harsh conditions. The gold mines they worked in were completely dark and flooded. The flooding caused skin breakdown like ulcers and several diseases. "Workers" *more like slaves* were chained to their work stations with shackles and not allowed to speak to one another while working months at a time. Many "workers" were killed during this work by accidents, while others were beaten&abused. Instead of working on draining the water from the mine, the evil colonizers/thieves who "owned" the mines got the workers rubber gumboots to prevent skin breakdown. The "workers" began to express themselves by making rhythms and beats with their bodies, gumboots, and chains. They made the noises by slapping their boots, stomping their feet, and rattling their shackles. Not only did this express their ethnic identity by using their traditional songs and rhythms, but it helped them communicate in the workplace. Gumboot dance spread outside the mines and into our communities as a form of entertainment. Today gumboot is popular and has morphed into a different form of dance that is more modern called #stepping. #BlackHistory #gumbootdance #AfricanHistory #SouthAfrica #apartheid
