30 Days of History- the stuff they didn't teach us in school.
๐Ÿ•ฐ
Day 1: Yaa Asantewaa (b.1840-d.1921, Ashanti Empire)
When a fucking British white dude general demanded that he be given the Golden Stool, an item of great significance to the people of Ashanti, to take back to London to display, Queen Yaa realized she's had enough of this bullshit fuckery the Brits were putting her people through. At the age of 60, she said fuck you and compiled an army to become commander-in-chief in the fight against British Colonialism.
In fiery speeches to ignite her people, she described the injustices and violence that seem to grow with aggression as each year passes. They've burned down our crops, they've killed our livestock, they've burned our cities, stolen our history, stolen our art, stripped us of our culture, killed or enslaved thousands of innocent people. Peace and diplomacy obviously mean nothing to these fuckers. We're just letting them destroy our lives? Nah. The only language they understand is this, she grabbed a gun and fired it into the sky.
She fought hard, forts in every town, intense psychological warfare that sent young British soldiers home crying. Her army was heavily outnumbered but they held their ground, until 1901, when the British captured and threatened her daughter. She turned herself in as an exchange and was exiled to Seychelles. The British managed to take over shortly after that but her legacy carried on. The people continued to fight. It took several decades, but finally in 1957, Ghana was the first African nation to gain independence from it's oppressors.
Don't you ever say that people of color didn't fight back against colonialism. We're not victims, we're fighters. We may have lost some battles, but the fight's not over yet.

The Golden Stool is believed to embody the spirit of the Ashanti nation (modern day Ghana). Yaa Asantewaa knew she needed to fight to protect it. Which she did! The details from stool can be seen throught the Golden Throne Collection. #warriorwomen

Yesterday, I was told that wearing dresses as a form of detox was sexist. If you know me personally, then you know I pay no mind to many people ๐Ÿ˜ฃ so this did not offend me. But not being offended seemed almost offensive to this person. It made me think how much more important this detox was for my girls and I. It seems to me that women have become extremely offended by feminine energy. Being a woman is a very ambitious thing! It's taking rights that people think should be given. It's being able to be a warrior by birth and nuturer by nature. It's being pulled into others rights that may not fight for you (black rights, lgbt rights, labor rights, immigration, etc) Serious tings gwan!!!! I cant wait to talk to them about the #Dahomey women, #NakanoTakeko, The Apache #Lozen, #YaaAsantewaa, and of course my own hero #Shera lol. I can't wait to teach them the art of "let that shit go"...these girls of mine will be so well groomed they will make Robert Greene quiver...its going to be good, hopefully i remeber to capture each moment! .... but for now โ˜• and ๐Ÿ’ผ which I also love ๐Ÿ˜Š #globalcitizens
