Queen Calafia! Fact-Garci Rodriquez de Montalvo heard gossip about “the new world” he wrote “The adventures of Esplandian” a Romance novel centered around Calafia. To some historians she is not just a character in a book written in the 1500’s. I believe she lived and I will work so hard to carry out her truth on any content I have access. She was a powerful Genaro who rules over so much land stretching from Colorado to Baja Mexico! #calafia #blackcalafornians #blackhistory #warriors #girlboss #blackwealth #gold #california #californiahistory #blackgirlsrock #blackgirls #creativeactors #creativeactorsprocess at Brooklyn, New York

This is such a simple statement. And yet, I don't think some of us "get it". So why do we treat Africa as if they don't know anything and need to be saved by the "West"? This makes all the sense in the world! "We took advantage of this continent, now we need to save them from themselves!"

3 pm tomorrow! Join us for a public screening of the documentary film, The Past Is Not Our Future: Walter Rodney's Student Years, followed by a Q&A with writer/director/producer Matthew J. Smith. More info: https://fsp.trinity.duke.edu/projects/not-our-future . . . The film documents the early period in the life of Guyanese revolutionary and historian of Africa, Walter Rodney. It places Rodney the student, the brilliant idealist whose restlessness was his greatest motivator, in the context of a Caribbean in flux. Rodney studied History at the University of the West Indies, Jamaica. When Jamaica shifted finally to full independence in 1962, Rodney was already exploring other models on which the Caribbean’s future could be based. A student visit to Cuba impacted him greatly. So did the silences which he had to confront in his education. African history seldom evolved in the curriculum beyond the trans-Atlantic slave trade and even then its coverage tended toward the prosaic accounting of region and numbers. Dissatisfied with the answers to his questions, Rodney started answering them for himself. The ancient history and the contemporary release from the formal grip of colonialism on the continent were urgent concerns of the well-traveled undergraduate who also visited the United States, England, and Russia between 1960 and 1963. This path to intellectual self-discovery and revolutionary awakening is the soul of the film. . . . @dukesoca @dukeclacs #dukestudents #duke #dukeuniversity #durham #documentaryfilm #caribbean #caribbeanhistory #walterrodney #cuba #westindies #blackhistory #africanhistory

Never forget, always remember the past atrocities & present days, so that you see how our ancestors resistance, fighting back forced change and we cannot stop now. #Repost @africanarchives • • • • • • Inhumane! Africans were kidnapped from Africa and brought to be exhibited in the human zoos. Many of them died quickly. The Human Zoo died out after WW II. Oddly it was Hitler who first banned them. The last was in Belgium in 1958. #BlackHistory #BlackHistoryMonth #BlackLivesMatter

Some thoughts on the benefits of networking at the same level as yourself. Networking at the same level and even down is a byproduct of long term thinking. The person who can pick up the phone and have a $500,000 line of credit with friendly rates within hours most likely nurtured that relationship for years, if not decades! Be encouraged and have fun growing that network of PEERS! Thank you @issarae for the inspiration for this post. #FINXLIT promotes financial literacy for all. at Los Angeles, California

This is mentally how many see us in their minds eye & why we are still hearing "the sit down, shut up, go over there, don't walk away from me, dont turn your back on me, answer me when I'm talking to you boy or girl" This is how many feel entitled to speak to us now, it's up to us whether we agree with this or not & if not then, know your rights, position to be in authority by education, accomplishments, advancement, ownership. Instead diamonds in your teeth, be the diamond broker, own the diamond store, Let us take back all the resources stolen from us. #Repost @africanarchives Black people did not “come to this country seeking a better life.” They were kidnapped from their homes in Africa, dragged in chains and loaded onto slave ships--treated not like human beings but like things, commodities to be traded and used to enrich others. Tens of millions of enslaved Africans died before even reaching America, so terrible were the conditions on the slave ships. Those who survived the trip and were then sold to plantation owners. #BlackHistory #BlackLivesMatter #Slavery

I absolutely love this so I wanted to share. Did you know that right after slavery, our people reduced our illiteracy rate faster than any other race. The history books will never tell you that but we did. Most of the Europeans who enslaved us had very little education but it didn't matter since they enriched themselves by enslaving our people. After slavery, our people built schools (when they didn't burn them down) and depending on one another. We reduced the f*** out of our illiteracy rate by more than 80% on our own. This alarmed Whites who did not want us to be smarter or as smart as them but there was nothing they could do. They were able to burn down schools, intimidate our teachers and those who could read but a lot of the education was there. There has been no other race of people that were able to do this. Just like there is no other race who are denied an education as well. Integration of our schools really heard us after that as well. Shout-out to this queen though. She did that!!!! ❤ ❤ ❤ . . . . #melanin #blackgirl #beingblackinamerica #blackbusinessowner #buyblack #friends #blackpride #blackculture #blackpriviledge #problack #blackbusiness #proudtobeblack #ilovebeingblack #blackownedbusiness #unapologeticallyblack #blacknationalism #blackowned #blackunity #blackpower #blackisbeautiful #blackfamilies #blackexcellence #mother #blackhistory #knowyourself #blackpeople #blackbusiness #realtalk #frfr

We hesitated to visit one of Louisiana's "plantation" tourist attractions as we had heard that some of them try to whitewash and erase the suffering endured by African American Slaves. Our experience at @whitneyplantation was not that. Their stories were told in a very straightforward manner through the lens of the children of the plantation. Although I spent much of the tour fighting back tears the experience was well worth it. I am grateful to have a partner that is brave enough to go on these expeditions with me. This is must visit if you go to #neworleans #nola #whitneyplantation #blackhistory #ushistory #slavery #13thamendment at Whitney Plantation

If you have a young child, especially a little girl, please BUY THIS BOOK! It is a book that teaches children about physical contact that is acceptable and NOT acceptable in a way that a child can understand to avoid sexual abuse or allow them to be comfortable having these conversations with their parents/caregivers. A definite must have!

Yesterday we learned the amazing history of this house, which was a ramshackle wreck when I last visited South Carolina four years ago. We were walking around the grounds when a woman on the front porch beckoned us in, and related this tale: In 1870 a freed slave, Cyrus Garvey, rowed across the river from his former plantation and, scavenging boards from structures destroyed in the Civil War, built a home on the bluffs here, where his former owner had a summer house. Every scrap of laboriously pieced-together lumber spoke to Garvey’s sweat, skill and ambition. The town of Bluffton funded its reconstruction a couple years ago. The woman spoke of Garvey with deep pride. Truly a moving experience. @townofbluffton #southcarolina #lowcountry #blackhistory at Bluffton, South Carolina
