Anna Pauline “Pauli” Murray - Born: Nov., 20th 1910 - Died: July 1st, 1985 Pauli was born in Maryland, but raised by her maternal Grandparents in our home of Durham, NC. Pauli would go on to live in New York at age 16 and soon after an early run in with segregation and cops, after her and a friend set in the white section of a public bus, Murray would pursue the law. A lawyer, poet, author, Civil rights activists, and woman’s rights activist Murray would also become the first African-American woman to be an Episcopalian Priest. Though Murray identified as a woman and fought for women’s rights Murray in many of her works made mention to the reality that she described two personas and that her gender was not accurately described as just that of woman. Murray wrote about her gender expression and her struggles of conforming to the gender roles of a woman at the time. After her first marriage, when she was still a teenager, she said “when men try to make love to me, something in me fights.”. Murray shortened their given name of Pauline and identified as Pauli. Murray was known for her men’s slacks and short masculine hair cuts. Murray’s exploration of gender expression such as explorative surgery on herself or how she used terminology like “inverted sex instinct” have lead many queer scholars to believe Pauli was trans or gender non-binary. From her protest on buses and counter sit-ins, to her work as an activist, to simply to her gender non-conforming style Murray is excellent example of Durham’s leadership both past and present. #queer #blackhistorymonth #blacklgbtqhistory #paulimurray #durhamnc

Real will always recognize real. You have those people in your life that you don’t have to see for years but when you do it’s like nothing ever changed. What is special about this brotherhood is that we had dreams when we were in middle school. Things we wanted to do and the type of life we wanted. Funny thing.. at 25 we still have those same dreams and we’re chasing them more intensely then ever before. True friends and family support each other’s dreams no matter what. No hate no bitterness no fake cheers but truly and genuinely supporting each other and cheering on one another’s successes! Excited for what’s next for you bro!!! Keep working 💪🏽 @_parisprice_ #dmv #greatness #dmvartists #realtalk #dmventrepreneurs #buisness #art #wealth #blackhistorymonth #blackexcellence

Happy Monday x We’re in the final stretch of the #whenwereadblack book photo challenge and it’s day 11. Today we share a book by a male author. My pick is The Underground Railroad and it’s a shame I haven’t read this book. I’ve probably had it since it came out in 2016. This is the perfect way to remind me of all the great books I have and need to read. . . . The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead tells the story of Cora and Caesar, two slaves in the southeastern United States during the 19th century, who make a bid for freedom from their Georgia plantations by following the Underground Railroad, which the novel depicts as primarily a rail transport system in addition to a series of safe houses and secret routes. The Underground Railroad was a critical and commercial success, hitting the best seller lists and winning several notable prizes. . . .

Two photographs of Angelina Weld Grimké, c. 1895 and c. 1907. Howard University Archives. . . "I love—a love for the forbidden" Harlem Renaissance playwright and poet Grimké (1880 - 1958) wrote in a letter to an unidentified recipient, "clearly the dangerous living ever attracts me." The only daughter of a a former slave who became a prominent lawyer and a white woman who was the niece of Quaker feminist and abolitionist Angelina Grimké Weld (her namesake), Grimké grew up in elite Boston social circles though often the only black student in the schools she attended. Upon her graduation in 1902 she embarked on a teaching career, first as a gym instructor then as an English teacher in Washington DC. In 1915 the NAACP asked her to write a play that would counteract the blatantly racist depictions of black people in the blockbuster film "The Birth of a Nation," and when her anti-lynching drama "Rachel" was performed (and positively received) the following year she was hailed as the first black woman to ever have a play staged in America. She also published poetry and essays in the magazines such as "The Crisis" and "Opportunity," and was later collected in a number of anthologies associated with the Harlem Renaissance. Poetry was also a means to express her feelings toward other women, including childhood friend and fellow Harlem Renaissance playwright Mary P. Burrill. She lived and took care of her father until his death in 1930, and in 1933 she retired from teaching and moved to New York. Her health always fragile after being involved in a train crash in 1913, she lived in semi-seclusion until her death in 1958 at the age of 78. . . . #angelinaweldgrimke #harlemrenaissance #queermodernism #queermodernisms #lgbthistory #herstory #lesbianwriter #blackhistory #blackhistorymonth

The battle of Adwa. Empress Taytu with her army in the battle against Italian colonialism and her husband Emperor Menelik II was behind with guards armed for back up. Longstory short Ethiopia won the war. Much like the Haitian revolution this would be a tale around the continent to uprise more against European colonialism. A famous quote amongst Ethiopian historians is that the reason why Menelik approves of Taytu going to war with him is because he preferred they died together than have her raped by Italian beasts. #ethiopia #eritrea #hornofafrica #eastafrica #africa #history #blackhistorymonth #queen #king #husbandandwife #love #original #unapologeticallyblack

#BlackHistoryMonth Day 24. Billy Porter began his career performing on Broadway in the early 90s, including a featured role in the 1994 revival of GREASE. During this time, he was also working on launching a music career and released an R&B album in 1997. But his singing career never got off the ground due to what he has called the "hugely, violently homophobic" music industry which forced him into the closet and tried to sell him as a heterosexual hearthrob. The failure of his music career left him bankrupt and struggling for the next several years. He has said he spent the 13 years after the album's failure without health insurance. His career took off again after a role in the 2011 revival of ANGELS IN AMERICA and especially his Tony-winning role as Lola in KINKY BOOTS in 2013. Porter has said the role of Lola allowed him to finally work past his internalized homophobia and toxic masculinity. Porter became a mainstream star in 2018 with his role as Pray Tell on POSE. In the less than two years since then, he has become a pop culture phenomenon known for his red carpet looks such as his famous tuxedo gown at the 2019 Oscars and appearing alongside other LGBTQ icons in Taylor Swift's "You Need to Calm Down" music video. In fall of 2019, he became the first openly black man to both be nominated for and win an Emmy for a leading role for his performance on POSE. It was also recently announced he would play the Fairy Godmother in Disney's upcoming live action remake of Cinderella. A dedicated activist, Porter has for the past two years teamed with Logo TV to deliver an LGBTQ State of the Union address. In June 2019, he was a featured performer at the WorldPride concert in New York celebrating the 50th anniversary of Stonewall.

A Moment in #blackhistory ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Living Legend John Robert Lewis (@repjohnlewis) is an American Politician and Ciivil Rights Leader. Serving since 1987, he is the U.S. Representative for Georgia's 5th Congressional District; and is the Dean of the Georgia Congressional Delegation. Often called "one of the most courageous persons the Civil Rights Movement ever produced," John Lewis has dedicated his life to protecting human rights, securing civil liberties and building what he calls "The Beloved Community” in America.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In 1961, Lewis volunteered to participate in the Freedom Rides, which challenged segregation at interstate bus terminals across the South. Lewis risked his life on those Rides many times by simply sitting in seats reserved for white patrons. He was also beaten severely by angry mobs and arrested by police for challenging the injustice of Jim Crow segregation in the South. He also helped spearhead one of the most seminal moments of the Civil Rights Movement. Hosea Williams, another notable Civil Rights leader, and John Lewis led over 600 peaceful, orderly protestors across the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama on March 7, 1965. They intended to march from Selma to Montgomery to demonstrate the need for voting rights in the state. The marchers were attacked by Alabama state troopers in a brutal confrontation that became known as "Bloody Sunday." News broadcasts and photographs revealing the senseless cruelty of the segregated South helped hasten the passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ John Lewis dedication to the highest ethical standards and moral principles has won him the admiration of many of his colleagues on both sides of the aisle in the United States Congress. Roll Call Magazine called Lewis “the conscience of the U.S. Congress,” and “...a genuine American hero and moral leader who commands widespread respect in the chamber.”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ‪#blackhistorymonth #johnlewis #blackhistoryfacts #knowledgeispower #blackandproud #blackkings #blackpoliticians

Celebrate #BlackHistoryMonth in Alexandria :: Did you know that Alexandria residents Lillie Finklea and Louise Massoud helped to protect a Civil War-era African American burial ground? Freedmen Cemetery, was established by Union Army in 1864 in response to a humanitarian crisis created with the arrival of contrabands (escaped slaves) in Alexandria. During and just after the war, more than 1,700 freed and formerly enslaved African Americans were buried in this cemetery. Over the years, construction had compromised the graves, and the site was forgotten. When plans for the new Woodrow Wilson Bridge were proposed, Finklea and Massoud formed Friends of The Freedmen’s Cemetery to bring its history to the City’s attention. In May 1997, the two women held the first Memorial Celebration for the Freedmen’s Cemetery. In 2007, City mitigation funds were used to preserve the historic burial ground. The site, now known as the Contrabands and Freedmen Cemetery Memorial, was formally dedicated in 2014. For more information about #BlackHistory events and activities throughout the month, visit alexandriava.gov/BlackHistory.

Jack "The Galveston Giant" Johnson (1878-1946) was perhaps the most prolific and (in his time) most famous boxer of the 20th century. Jack finished his 96-fight professional career with a record of 71-11-3, consisting of 35 wins by knockout. He would, during this career, become the first Black man to hold the title of World Heavyweight Champion, a title that he would hold from 1908-1915. Jack would continue to box professionally until the age of 50, making his one of the longest boxing careers in history. He would go on to become a successful nightclub owner, restaurateur, and businessman in many fields, becoming one of he first athletes of his caliber to achieve success in the business world as well as the sports world. #boxing #strength #blackhistorymonth #fitness

"There are so many roots to the tree of anger that sometimes the branches shatter before they bear." . A self-described “black, lesbian, mother, warrior, poet,” Audre Lorde dedicated both her life and her creative talent to confronting and addressing injustices of racism, sexism, classism, and homophobia. Her work was influential to the anti-war, civil rights and women’s movement during the later half of the 20th century, and continues to resonate. . #BlackHistoryMonth #BlackWomen #CelebratingBlackWomen #ywca #eliminatingracism #empoweringwomen

Happy Monday everybody! 👋🏾 It’s the last Monday in #BHM, so we’re here to drop a lil #MondayMotivation to start the work week off! 🙌🏾 • • Maya Angelou once told us that WE are in control of our actions and attitude on matters! 💪🏾 If you CAN change something that you’re complaining about, then you should take action and rid yourself of whatever it is. 🗑However... if it CAN’T be changed, then it’s time to get a new outlook on the matter! 🧐 • • For each “negative”, seek the positive! 😊 It’s more than likely always there. The true message always comes to light, but you’re in charge of actually acknowledging it.💡💕

✨Let your light shine ✨ THIS IS OUT OF A MOUTH THAT DIDNT START TALKING UNTIL SHE WAS 4!!! We are truly blessed!!! Brailynn had her first solo at church today! She didn’t want to do a speech this time; instead, she was determined to sing! I will be honest...I was nervous about her singing in front of everyone by herself but she made her decision that she was going to sing. Never underestimate your kid and their abilities to do things they are sure they can do! She sings all the time at home and practiced her song EVERY SINGLE DAY!!! And I must say...IM A PROUD MOMMY!!!!! She was very confident in her voice and got up, grabbed the mic...
