Sat, #January,17.1931 #DouglasWilder was born on this date in 1931. He is an African American #lawyer, #professor and #politician. Lawrence Douglas Wilder was born in #Richmond,Virginia, the seventh of eight children. The #grandsonofslaves, he was named after poet #PaulLaurenceDunbar and abolitionist, speaker and author #FrederickDouglass. He attended segregated George Mason Elementary School, Armstrong High School and #VirginiaUnionUniversity, where he graduated with a #degreeinchemistry in 1951. Wilder then served in the #KoreanWar, earning a #BronzeStar. After his service in 1958, Wilder married Eunice Montgomery. Before divorcing in 1978, they had three children: Loren, Lynn, and Lawrence Douglas, Jr. He attended #HowardUniversitySchoolofLaw under the G.I. Bill, graduating in 1959 and co-founding the law firm Wilder, Gregory, and Associates. Wilder began his political career after winning a 1969 special election to the #SenateofVirginia. Here, he became the #firstAfricanAmericanstateSenator from Virginia since Reconstruction. In 1985, still holding office in the state Senate; he was narrowly elected #LieutenantGovernorofVirginia on a Democratic ticket under then-Attorney General Gerald Baliles. Upon his election, Wilder became the first African American elected to statewide executive office in the South in the twentieth century. Ascending from the office of Lieutenant Governor Wilder succeed Baliles in 1989. In 1990, in recognition of his #landmarkachievement, the NAACP awarded Wilder the Spingarn Medal. As governor, Wilder #grantedapardon to basketball star #AllenIverson. Iverson was accused of assaulting a woman in bowling alley and sentenced to 15 years in prison. After Iverson had served just five months, Governor Wilder granted clemency and released Iverson from his prison sentence. During his term he oversaw 14 executions and some failed electrocutions. Wilder left office in 1994 because Virginia does not allow governors to serve successive terms. In 2004, Wilder announced his intention to run for #MayorofRichmond. Until recently, the Richmond City Council chose the mayor from among its 9 members.

On February 1, 1960, 4 Black students walked into the Greensboro Woolworth diner. Influenced by Gandhi’s non-violent protest trainings, they sat at the lunch counter (where the official policy was to serve whites only). The store closed, sparking more students’ sit-ins nationwide at segregated establishments, with the goal to bring attention to young Blacks’ struggles and resilience. For the Cambridge Rindge & Latin’s Black Student Union members, they celebrate the movement with their “Cambridge Minority Reports: Volume 3” this February. @cambridgepublicschools #highschool #putkidsfirst #eduleaders #histedchat #historyteaching #urbaned #teachered #diversity #education #edchat #edreform #futureready #educolor #learning #teachers @bet @the.root #personalizedlearning #learnerexperience #studentvoice #studentengagement #studentled #historyteacher #lifelonglearning #teacherpd #classroom #teachersofinstagram #blackexcellence #frederickdouglass

I’m not going to front and tell you I didn’t laugh at his FB live tirades. I did laugh at him, but I shouldn’t have. It wasn’t funny and these videos he’s been posting about Tariq Nasheed and Boyce Watkins aren’t funny. I’m not caping for Nasheed or Watkins either. I just know trouble when I see it. # There are a myriad of reasons why this hotepping shit has to end. These ‘scholars’ galavant around with a ‘pro-Black/pro-Afrikan’ politic securely rooted in misogynoir, patriarchy, queer and transantagonism, among others. # Umar Johnson is different. Umar Johnson is incredibly dangerous. He’s seems content on building a cult of personality for himself where anyone that publicly rebukes him is rendered a coon. # We’ve talked about the ‘prince of pan-afrikanism’ or ‘the most requested black scholar on the planet’ claims. We’ve talked about the unabashed homophobia and misogynoir. The part that scares me is he, unlike his contemporaries, has access to Black children on the regular. If he is spewing this repugnance on social media for all to see, I have to ask what is he saying to our children behind closed doors? What is he saying to Black children who may be questioning their sexuality? What is he recommending to that child’s parents? # I don’t doubt he’ll open up some kind of school for Black children very soon. I don’t doubt some Black parents will entrust him with their child’s schooling. Even if he doesn’t, he’ll still be touring the globe with his formula on how to save Black children. It is my belief he will damage many children in the process. # #freenegrouniversity #freenegro #umarjohnson #tariqnasheed #boycewatkins #facebooklive #instagram #cultofpersonality #psychology #hiddencolors #panafrican #garveyite #rbg #frederickdouglass #princeofpanafrikanism #hotep #intersectionalfeminism #intersectionality #internationalifatunde #blackchildren #protectblackchildren #misogynoir #homophobia #problack #blacklivesmatter #unapologeticallyafrican #unapologeticallyafrikan #redblackgreen #blackfeminism #consciousness

Received my copy of ‘The Narrative’ signed by Frederick Douglass’s descendants. I am proud beyond words to have worked on the curriculum project and to present with my colleague Stephanie Folarin at the National Network of Schools in Partnership Conference. Watch http://www.fdfi.org for free curriculum in time for the believed bicentennial of his birth. @frederickdouglassnps @frederickdouglass._ #frederickdouglass #equity #inclusion #curriculum #invitingelephantsintheroomtotea

Inspired in part by Frederick Douglass’ “The North Star” newsletter of the 1800s (Douglass felt, though he was grateful to such folks as William Lloyd Garrison, a white abolitionist who published the antislavery paper, “The Liberator,” he felt that Black authors, editors, and orators must have their own paper with which to share their voices), my students in the Cambridge Rindge & Latin’s Black Student Union propose their own idea to increase their voices for/to Black and Brown folks, and educate a community on who they are, via their own delivery. Excited to see “THE VOLUME” become just that. @cambridgepublicschools #highschool #putkidsfirst #eduleaders #histedchat #historyteaching #urbaned #teachered #diversity #education #edchat #edreform #futureready #educolor #learning #teachers @bet @the.root #personalizedlearning #learnerexperience #studentvoice #studentengagement #studentled #historyteacher #lifelonglearning #teacherpd #classroom #teachersofinstagram #blackexcellence #frederickdouglass

#Repost @embargocommunications Frederick Douglass came to New Bedford, Massachusetts in 1838 as an escaped slave. Douglass didn't have no I-PHONE OR SAMSUNG 😭😭. Verizon or AT&T! 🤔 When Douglass arrived at the train station in New Bedford, he was told to go to Nathan & Polly Johnson house. They were free black folk. Nathan Polly got Douglass a job on the New Bedford fishing docks caulking the ships. Little did Douglass know that Black Folks would be caulking there hair one day 😂😂😂. Are y'all paying attention, yet? Nathan Polly had a big library. So you know Douglass loved that. Douglass joined the local Anti-Slavery society & starting speaking. Some didn't believe Douglass was once a slave because he spoke so well. So he wrote his first Autobiography. In 1840, there was an Anti-Slavery Convention on Nantucket. Frederick Douglass spoke. That's where Douglass caught the eye of William Lloyd Garrison, the publisher of the Liberator. One of the most Popular Anti-Slavery publications in the country. Southern Slave owners had NUMBERS on Garrison head for what he published. The rest was History. 1850 The Fugitive Slave Act, Harriet Tubman, John Brown (who lived with Douglass for months before Harper's Ferry), 1858 Lincoln v. Senator Stephen Douglas debates. Lincoln's election in 1860. The Civil War. #Embargo presents #blacktwitter #NewYorkCity #Boston #Miami #Chicago #WashingtonDC #Baltimore #Dallas #Atlanta #LosAngeles #Oakland #StLouis #Milwaukee #NewOrleans #Philadelphia #Pittsburgh #tcot #Columbus #Cleveland #Orlando #Memphis #Houston #Detroit #Indianapolis #Charlotte #frederickdouglass

The social dynamics of how art engages a diverse & broad community-based public is articulated so well in such projects. Exhibit on view through May 13, 2018.

I’m incredibly grateful for a weekend full of joy, sadness, and renewal from God. It’s amazing how God can renew you and restore you. Despite some mental health challenges, God has helped me find and maintain community. Saturday evening I went to my favorite coffee shop Tanners where I saw my friend @docaswad who I often see. He helped me and encouraged me that evening. Thanks for your kindness Doc. God will continue to bless you. Sunday I went to @epicentrewestla my newfound church home. Got to see my lovely @_lcludlow and @simplyshirleyy among others and a good word on praising God for the blessings and not simply looking at what we don’t have. Spent the evening with @tregnier52 And her amazing parents. Today was MLK Day and I spent it with my sista @freshtrisha and my ladies @sirenitarosita @rai.de.soleil. These ladies are working hard and in school! So encouraging! I know God will bless them. Please keep the faith, hope and keep trusting in God. He heals, loves and is always there. Let’s remember to honor our elders, ancestors and those who paved the way. 💜❤️💚💛 #iam #radicalblackwoman #weare #vision #progress #frederickdouglass #harriettubman #sojourner #drking #malcolmx #corettascottking #rosaparks #radicalblackwomen #blackgirlmagic #mentalhealthmatters #blackmentalhealth #suicideprevention #blackgirlsrock #freedomandsoulrecords #iammargueritealexis

I’ve been indoctrinating my young, white daughters to believe that ALL men (PEOPLE) are created equal. It’s working. They cannot fathom why anyone would be treated badly because of the color of their skin. They understand even less the hundreds of years of atrocities people of color have endured...so we read and we watch videos from the Civil Right’s Movement to help us understand. Big Bit’s poster says “We should not be pushed around.”

JUST CONFIRMED!!! “One Voice: A Black History Narrative,” will be coming to Emmanuel Bible Church in Mauldin, SC, on April 4th, 2018! I’m very excited to announce that on this 50th anniversary of #MLKs assassination, we, at #ebcupstate will be bringing Dr. King back to Life with a performance of my Theatre presentation of “One Voice,” for one night only! In just 39years, this man changed the entire world! We honor his legacy in celebration, while we cannot forget his personal sacrifice. April 4th of this year is the 50th memorial of Dr. King’s death, and there’s no better time to join hands as sisters and brothers. Thankful that the elders of my personal local body saw fit to host this experience, and I want you there! Many ask about public performances, and this one will include NEW vignettes! “Like” to stay in the loop about reserving your seat! #mlk #mlkweekend #mauldinsc #mlkweekend2018 #dreamspeech #mlkdayofservice #martinlutherking #jdew #yeahthatgreenville #obama #frederickdouglass #muhammadali #jamesweldonjohnson

#didyouknow #OctaviusCatto (Feb 22, 1839 – Oct 10, 1871) was a #blackeducator, intellectual, and #civilrights #activist in #Philadelphia. He became principal of male students at the Institute for Colored Youth, where he had also been educated. Born free in Charleston, South Carolina, in a prominent mixed-race family, he moved north as a boy with his family. He became educated and served as a teacher, becoming active in civil rights. As a man, he also became known as a top cricket and baseball player in 19th-century Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. #TheCivilWar increased Catto's activism for abolition and equal rights. He joined with #FrederickDouglass and other black leaders to form a Recruitment Committee to sign up #blackmen to fight for the Union and emancipation. After the #Confederate invasion of Pennsylvania in 1863, #Catto helped raise a company of black volunteers for the state's defense; their help, however, was refused by the staff of Major General Darius N. Couch on the grounds that the men were not authorized to fight. (Couch was later corrected by US Secretary of WarEdwin M. Stanton, but not until the aspiring soldiers had returned to Philadelphia.) Acting with Douglass and the Union League, Catto helped raise eleven regiments of United States Colored Troops in the Philadelphia area. These men were sent to the front and many saw action. Catto was commissioned as a major, but did not fight. On Friday, April 21, 1865, at the State House in Philadelphia, Catto presented the regimental flag to Lieutenant Colonel Trippe, commander of the 24th United States Colored Troops. An account of Catto's presentation speech was reported the following day in the Christian Recorder. Catto became a #martyr to #racism, as he was shot and killed in election-day violence in Philadelphia, where ethnic Irish of the #DemocraticParty, which was anti-Reconstruction and had opposed black suffrage, attacked black men to prevent their voting for #Republican candidates. #americanhistory #blackhistory #mlk #payattention

As I used to pass by this cemetery to attend a class, these lines of the popular elegy used to come to my mind. . . "Perhaps in this neglected spot is laid Some heart once pregnant with celestial fire; Hands, that the rod of empire might have sway'd, Or walk'd to ecstasy the living lyre." . Thomas Gray, Elegy Written in Country Churchyard . . . . Quick fact for the Civil War aficionados: This is also the place where Mr. Frederick Douglas, one of the most prominent faces of the abolitionist movement in the US, was buried with honor in 1895. . . . . #poetry #poem #winter #snow #fog #white #red #green #trees #literature #frederickdouglass #american #civilwar #rochester #newyork #cemetery #fire #empire

I’m white. I have privilege because of my skin color. It is that simple. We are not all treated equal, which means that I have an obligation to speak up when I witness injustice. When I have called out racism recently I have been scorned by people who do not want to acknowledge that their statements were racist; maybe socially ostracised by some in my religious community. I still get on well enough every day, but there can be repercussions or “loss of privilege” when white people stand up for marginalized groups. It is hard to find yourself in the cross-hairs of racial hatred, but it feels a lot better than walking away from an event and realizing you can never go back and do it right. Last week I heard an interview with @TaNehisi.Coatess where he discussed the tendency white people have to be unassociated with racism. (But Im okay right? ...because I’m not racist.) His explanation will stick with me. My takeaway: White people can’t get out of it. We are in the mess too, also because of the color of our skin. We are the ones with privilege until things change. The only way out is equality. The only way out is sharing in the discrimination in front of hateful audiences. I do not mean being a #whitesavior. I mean fighting OUR fight to communicate to the bigoted that we are all human, and if you deride them for the color of their skin you deride me and yourself also. The best thing I ever learned was to stop saying “I’m not racist” and start saying “Okay, how am I racist?” I started identifying things I say and do, especially around people of color, that identify how I treat people of color differently. If you aren’t asking yourself that I believe you are still perpetuating systemic/institutionalized racism. Like someone who says, “I don’t feel sick, so why should I wash my hands?" meanwhile they spread the disease. #ihaveadream #mlk #mlkjr #civilrights #mlkday #mlkjrday #civilrightsday #equality #racism #whiteprivilege #lego #legonews #wokelego #legomurals #mountaintopspeech #ivebeentothemountaintop #legomaniac #instalego #legopic #tanehisicoates #frederickdouglass #rosaparks #georgewashingtoncarver #harriettubman #katherinejohnson

I think that is only right that on today of all days we represent a true story of overcoming slavery and experiencing the beauty of freedom. Frederick Douglass was a powerful man who continued to fight for the freedom of others after finding his own!!! He is remembered as a hero, and is the father of the abolition movement in America!!! 🦊 🦊 🦊 🦊 🦊 #bookreadhappyhour Dr. Martin Luther King Jr Day 🦊 🦊 #foxreadsjan2018 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr Day - Book with an African American Main Character!!!! 🦊 🦊 #read #reading #book #bookish #bookstagram #frederickdouglass #narrativeofthelifeoffrederickdouglassanamericanslave
