#BlackHistoryMonth #Day18 #TuskegeeAirmen I am proud to say that I was able to meet one of these honorable people #HermanAceLawson. He is pictured in the center/back of the first photo, and again with his bomber #AceOfPearls named for his beautiful wife #PearlLawson. The Tuskegee Airmen is the popular name of a group of African-American military pilots (fighter and bomber) who fought in World War II. They formed the 332nd Fighter Group and the 477th Bombardment Group of the United States Army Air Forces. The name also applies to the navigators, bombardiers, mechanics, instructors, crew chiefs, nurses, cooks and other support personnel. The Tuskegee Airmen were the first African-American military aviators in the United States Armed Forces. During World War II, black Americans in many U.S. states were still subject to the Jim Crow laws and the American military was racially segregated, as was much of the federal government. The Tuskegee Airmen were subjected to discrimination, both within and outside the army.

She was 86. (WBAL) #ethylennis #Baltimore #jazz #singer #blackhistorymatters #blackhistorymonth #arts #academic #charmcity #actso at Baltimore, Maryland

Willis Johnson of Cincinnati, Ohio, patented an improved mechanical egg beater (U.S. pat # 292,821) on February 5, 1884. In fact, what Willis Johnson had really invented was an early mixing machine and not just an egg beater. Willis Johnson's device was not intended for eggs alone. Willis Johnson had designed his egg beater and mixer for eggs, batter, and other baker's ingredients. It was a double acting machine with two chambers. Batter could be beaten in one section and eggs could be beaten in another section, or one section could be cleaned while the other section could continue beating. #BlackHistory #blackhistorymonth

#ReadSoulLit Challenge Day 16: True Life - A Shining Thread of Hope. I’m pulling this one from way back on the #unreadshelf, but any book about the history of Black women in America is the definition of #truelife. This book was originally published in 1998. I don’t believe I’ve had it that long, but I can’t recall just how long I’ve owned it (and have never read it 🤦🏾‍♀️). Clearly, after many, many moves over the years, to still be in possession of this one and for it to be in the excellent condition that it is in, it must be meant for me to read it. #bookworm #bibliophile #bookstagram #blackwomen #blackgirlsread #blackhistorymonth

This week I am moving towards student doctors! Please comment with support and words of encouragement throughout the week. Everyone meet Niasia! Niasia (Nyke) Calhoun born and raised in North Carolina. I attended the illustrious North Carolina A&T State University in which I played college softball and joined ROTC. During my junior year of college I enlisted into the Air Force. In Dec 2014 I received my degree in Exercise science Pre-Physical Therapy. A few months after graduation I went on Active duty for a little and contemplated on attending PT school. One day I looked up chiropractic schools at work and I didn’t even know much about chiros except car accident docs (So I thought lol). I shadowed a sports chiro in Charlotte, NC. Saw the difference he made in people lives and I applied to Parker university in 2016. Next thing I knew I had moved to Texas. Even though chiropractic wasn’t my first career choice, I am thankful for the exposure and education to be able to reach many people. This profession grew on me as I learned more I became aware to the potential our bodies can reach without the use of medicine or surgeries. They say “you don’t know until you know” and now that I know, I will educate people on the benefits of chiropractic. My vision is to be able to work with Elite Athletes and Veterans. Currently I am a Tri 8 student in clinic. The journey is long and as a student I was tested physically, mentally and emotionally. My spirituality is what kept me going because no one sees the long nights, the tears and the doubt. Prayer and faith lead me, especially in those times I could not see the light. In the end it’s all well worth it and I can’t wait to serve my community. Graduation Dec 2019. Thank you so much for allowing me to share your story! I wish you the best in the rest of your journey! You give me hope to get to that finish line ❤️ #futurechiropractor #blackchiropractors #blackhistorymonth #blackdoctorsmatter

Have you heard of the Hazel Scott show? Well before Oprah had a show, Hazel Scott had HER show! My Black History Moment of the day goes to this queen Hazel Scott! Hazel Scott, an activist, jazz musician, and vocalist was the first Black American woman to broadcast worship on television. Born on September 22, 1950, musician Hazel Scott appeared in front of the House Un-American Activities Committee. She’d been named as a subversive — another addition to a long list of those who were somehow plotting against America. Artists, Scott told the committee, “ we are eager and anxious to help, to serve. We should not be written off by the vicious slanders of vicious and petty men. We are one of your most effective and irreplaceable instruments in the grim struggle ahead.” That struggle for freedom and equality was a vital part of Scott’s life. The longtime civil rights advocate had broken a barrier two months earlier when she became the first black woman to host a television variety show in America. The Hazel Scott Show was a weekly musical variety show that showcased Scott’s talents. For each show, Scott was “always costumed in gorgeous gowns, diamonds, and neatly coiffed hair.” The show was a mix of musical styles, sometimes with Scott providing vocals in addition to her playing. She was rejecting the prevailing media images of black women at the time. She was confident, sophisticated, beautiful, and talented, and the viewers loved her. Within a few weeks, the show had found more sponsors and went from a local weekly broadcast to airing nationally three times a week. She brought something new to the media landscape, something that would be gone before it could truly reach its potential. She paved the way for the Billy Daniels, the Nat King Cole Show and others. In 1950, Scott was offered a 15-minute program that would air every Friday night on the network’s New York affiliate, making her the first black woman with her own show on network TV. Talk about black girl magic! ✨ Thank you queen Hazel for paving the way for blacks that wanted their own tv shows! We salute you! . . #blackhistorymonth #blackhistory #blackhistorymoment #myblackisbeautiful

The Tuskegee Airmen, the army air corps program to train African Americans to fly and maintain combat aircraft during WW2. Nicknamed the “Red Tails” or “Red-Tail Angels” were active from 1940-1948, helped bring an end to fascism in Europe. The 99th Red Tail regiment was declared ready for combat in April 1943; shipped out from Tuskegee on April 2nd bound towards North Africa where they would link up with the 33rd fighter group who’s commander was Col. William W. Momyer. Their first mission was on June 2nd which helped clear the way for the invasion of Sicily; in result there was a surrender of an entire garrison of Italian troops 11,121 and 78 Germans. The 99th moved on to Sicily and received the Distinguished Unit Citation for their role in combat! ✊🏾🇺🇸💯 #blackhistorymonth #knowyourhistory #tuskegeeairmen

My hubby is flyyy omgeee!!!!❤️ MLK Gala feed the hungry project with our good friends (not pictured). ❤️ Hubbs rarely wears a suit but when he puts it on 🙌🏽 I admire the man he has always been, excellent father, husband, friend and mentor. He holds my hand through it all! I couldn’t imagine the 24 years without him- we finish each other sentences, I know if he’s out of my presence-when my phone rings it’s him. My soulmate! Watching him navigate barriers as a black man and still beating the odds inspires me so much I can’t even explain- blessed to be beside him - my best friend. Funny thing, when we got invited to the Gala I told my mom “we have to be here we’re sitting at the table with friends- but I don’t know what we are going to wear??” She said “It’s in your closet!!” As always mom was right- the suit he’s wearing I got for him Christmas 2017 and the dress I’m wearing was my daughters prom dress from 2014! And my friend complemented that I was giving #billieholiday vibes God is good!!🙌🏽 We’ve climbed heights you wouldn’t believe ALL by Gods good grace. #celebrate #blackhistorymonth
