I return to Baldwin's writing when I need to re-energize, particularly from abhorrent days at work - Tonight's read, A Fly in Buttermilk. / "I certainly did believe him; he impressed me as being a very gentle and honorable man. But I could not avoid wondering if he had ever 'really looked' at a Negro and wondered about the life, the aspirations, the universal humanity hidden behind the dark skin. " /

I want to kiss you, but only in the most connotative way possible, so that no dictionary definition would stand a chance to describe how your lungs could be filled with the sweetest air possible, and yet you would still be so breathless..

@Regrann from @_blacktivistt_ - repost @thefirstpeople
October, 1865 was the birth month of Ella Grigsby (later Williams), later billed as Mme. Abomah, the Tallest Woman in the World.
Abomah was an extremely tall woman who became something of an international celebrity, playing across Europe & Australia &, of course, the United States in the early 1900โ€™s. A good number of photos still exist of her towering elegantly over this person & that. (use the arrows on either side of the photo to view additional pictures)
Several sources say her real name was Ella Grigsby; a newspaper advertisement also calls her โ€œElla Abomah.โ€ Because Grigsby was the name of her parentsโ€™ slaveholder, she was reluctant to use it and sometimes went by the name of Ella Williams. In nearly all sources, sheโ€™s known simply as โ€œAbomah.โ€ Originally from Columbia, South Carolina, she didnโ€™t particularly want to leave home to go on the road, but while working as a cook for a well-off family she was finally convinced in 1898 โ€“ probably through the waving of cash. Showpeople who were genuine freaks, as they called themselves, could make an excellent wage, especially if they were congenial and could combine their oddity with talents. Basically, if they could โ€œrise aboveโ€ their affliction and show this to an audience, they could play at the best circuses.

@Regrann from @_blacktivistt_ - A NEW MILLIONS GRANT PROGRAM WILL FUND PROJECTS TO PRESERVE AFRICAN-AMERICAN HISTORY

According to the National Parks Traveler, the National Park Service will give out millions of dollars of grants to sites and projects that have to do with the Civil Rights Movement and African โ€“American history.

A $7.5 million grant program is being allocated using funds for a new initiative called the NPS African American Civil Rights Grant Program.

These are the well-known sites among the list of grantees- Central High in Little Rock, Arkansas, where nine black students faced violent mobs, the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama, where four little black girls were killed in 1962, the Rosenwald Schools, Holy Rosary Institute and many others.

The grants will be given to show the community the variety of Civil Rights Movement and black stories that need to be told and will also highlight the types of work.

Black history in public schools is usually only taught during Black History Month. Moreover, black history is usually reduced to slavery and a little version of Civil Rights Movement. You will never hear about the greatest contributions of people like W.E.B. Dubois and Eldridge Cleaver. The teacher probably won't tell you about the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Little Rock Nine and many other important events in lives of black people. That`s why these grants are important for our community.

Just in case you're were looking for another reason why you love me, I took my first hip hop class tonight (not actually my first but we won't discuss that). You can tell by the look on my face that I am serious about my moves ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚. I swear I'm not on drugs. I don't know the song that we did this dance to in class so I picked this song to practice to at home. Totally does not fit ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚. But who cares black excellence comes in all shapes and sizes. Sometimes it comes in the form of a hot mess. I swear I am normally a good dancer. Just sups bad with choreography and timing ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ and maybe balance ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฟ๐Ÿค—โค๐Ÿ˜ฌ. #alwaystrysomethingnew #whocaresifyoulookstupid #blackandproud #alternativeblacks #onedayillbegood #maybeishouldsticktomodern #๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

I didn't always agree with his approach to solving issues but one thing I know for sure is that in this man was a real desire to make a difference and improve people's lives. Those that voted for him and those that disrespected him alike. That is way more than can be said about the current sitting president. Thank you @barackobama and @michelleobama44.
