I don't choose these people by random, I actually gain knowledge from them and choose who open my eyes the most. So I'm gonna start #blackhistorymonth with my day 1, George Washington carver. I refuse to post long facts about these historic people in hopes you do research and gain knowledge yourself. #blackhistory365 #blackhistoryhero #blackhistoryisamericashistory ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ

"Try to be a rainbow in someone's cloud" At You HR Consultancy we are celebrating Black History Month 2017! As a team we have each chosen a Black History Month Hero who has inspired us. cloud"
As a passionate reader and equality champion my Black History Month Hero is Maya Angelou. Maya Angelou was a poet and award-winning author known for her acclaimed memoir I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings which made literary history as the first nonfiction best-seller by an African-American woman and truly inspired me to gain strength from adversity and understand that everyone can have the ability to own their inner serenity.

Happy Ardell Edison Day!!!
March 5, 1919 - June 18, 1994

I am always entirely surprised and deeply comforted by the way his mannerisms, his spirit and his smile reveal themselves through my family members. I can never forget how overwhelmed I was when he died, because I had planned on him living to be 100, at least. ๐Ÿ˜ My prayer was that I wished for my PawPaw to still be with me ... and then I met my Big C, who is almost his spitting image! ๐Ÿ˜†

Even though it has been decades, I still miss our sweet PawPaw. โค #ArdellEdison #GOAT #Legacy #BlackHistoryHero #Veteran #WWII

Nina Simone

Nina Simone was an American singer, songwriter, pianist, arranger, and civil rights activist who worked in a broad range of musical styles including classical, jazz, blues, folk, R&B, gospel, and pop.
Simone became known as the voice of the Civil Rights Movement. She wrote "Mississippi Goddam" in response to the 1963 assassination of Medgar Evers and the Birmingham church bombing that killed four young African-American girls. She also penned "Four Women," chronicling the complex histories of a quartet of African-American female figures, and "Young, Gifted and Black," borrowing the title of a play by Lorraine Hansberry, which became a popular anthem.

Today is the birthday of Nina Simone. She would have been 84 years old.

It's black history month so I'll share a story most people don't know: the story of Henry Johnson aka the "black death" the first WW1 hero who fended off a full battalion of German soldiers on his own in the Argonne forest. THIS DUDE WAS BAD ASS. WW1, 1918-Just after 2 a.m., Johnson heard the โ€œsnippinโ€™ and clippinโ€™ โ€ of wirecutters on the perimeter fence and told Roberts, who was also on scout duty with him, to run back to camp to let the French troops know there was trouble. Johnson then hurled a grenade toward the fence, which brought a volley of return gunfire from the Germans, as well as enemy grenades. Roberts didnโ€™t get far before he decided to return to help Johnson fight, but he was hit with a grenade and wounded too badly in his arm and hip to do any fighting. Johnson had him lie in the trench and hand him grenades, which the Albany native threw at the Germans. But there were too many enemy soldiers, and they advanced from every direction; Johnson ran out of grenades. He took German bullets in the head and lip but fired his rifle into the darkness. He took more bullets in his side, then his hand, but kept shooting until he shoved an American cartridge clip into his French rifle and it jammed.
By now, the Germans were on top of him. Johnson swung his rifle like a club and kept them at bay until the stock of his rifle splintered; then he went down with a blow to his head. Overwhelmed, he saw that the Germans were trying to take Roberts prisoner. The only weapon Johnson had left was a bolo knife, so he climbed up from the ground and charged, hacking away at the Germans before they could get clean shot at him. The French were on the way and the German battalion fled. Johnson was wounded 21 times but lived #badass#henryjohnson#theblackdeath#ww1#ww1stories#unknownbymany#medalofhonor#africanamerican#mypeoples#ww1hero#firsttobe#incredible#blackhistory#blackhistorymonth#blackhistoryhero#hero#purpleheart

Maya Angelou
She was so many things.
Poet, activist, writer but most importantly she was and continues to be an inspiration and a hope to generations of people. "The caged bird sings
with fearful trill
of the things unknown
but longed for still
and his tune is heard
on the distant hill for the caged bird
sings of freedom"

James Mercer Langston Hughes

was an American poet, social activist, novelist, playwright, and columnist.
He was one of the earliest innovators of the then-new literary art form called jazz poetry. Hughes is best known as a leader of the Harlem Renaissance in New York City. He famously wrote about the period that "the negro was in vogue", which was later paraphrased as "when Harlem was in vogue". #blackhistoryhero #blackhistoryisamericanhistory

Lorraine Hansberry

She is one of my personal favorites. Playwright and author. Best known for her play 'A raisin in the sun'. Hansberry was the first black woman to have her work performed on Broadway. She, like many of her compatriots, took an active part in the civil rights movement .

His Narrative changed my life #BootStraps #BlackHistoryHero

James Baldwin
American novelist, playwright, essayist, social critic and poet. His writings gave a voice to racial inequality and injustice. Words that still ring true today. Although he played an important role in the civil rights movement, Baldwin rejected the label civil rights activist. He instead agreed with Malcom X in asserting that if one is a citizen, one should not have to fight for ones civil rights.
Check out the now Oscar nominated documentary on Baldwin titled 'I am not your Negro'

Fannie Lou Hamer
Civil rights activist, voting rights activist, key organizer of Mississippi's freedom summer for the Student Non-violent Coordinating Committee. Fannie herself was a victim of police violence and nearly beaten to death in a jail cell. The attack left her physically and psychologically scarred but fueled her cause.
Fannie recounted her ordeal at the 1964 DNC where she spoke on behalf of the Mississippi Freedom Democratic party which challenged Mississippi's all white and anti civil rights delegation. Coining the phrase "I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired" #blackhistoryisamericanhistory #blackhistoryhero #fannielouhamer

Libya today is a fractured country without any central government. Instead, it has two quarreling governments one in Tripoli recognized by no other state, and another in the city of El Bayada, which enjoys useless international recognition.
