The ancient Egyptians were Black people. The ancient Greeks were Black people. Remember that movie called “300” when the guy said...THIS IS “SPARTA”...? Remember those RES CLOAKS that the “Spartans” wore? The REAL Spartans were Black people. They STILL wear those famed RED CLOAKS! The Maasai are the ancient t Greeks called Spartans. But...ancient Sparta was in Central America!

Danny Wilfred #HappyBirthday #BlackHistoryMonth2020 #BlackQueerHistory #DannyWilfred #Actor #Singer #Dancer #Icon #CanICallMyselfAnIcon? #IWill #IAm #BlackHistory • • • • My journey of self acceptance has been a long one. For longer than I would like to admit, I have measured my wealth by who I’ve been made to believe I am. Who my parents bred me to be. Who the church and others in “authority” deem me to be... but this much I know to be true: I am a Child of God. I am fearfully and wonderfully made. I am not a mistake and I am beautiful. My skin and my heart are worthy of an all mighty God, bigger than any bullshit this small minded world may be accustom to. I am black. I am queer. I am in fact beautifully and wonderfully made. I thank God every day for all of the boundless blessings He has bestowed on me. I thank God for the incredible people He has placed in my life and the countless souls I have had the immense pleasure of impacting on a day to day basis. I am blessed and highly favored and no weapon formed against me shall prosper and I claim my bounty right here and now as a Child of God! Here’s lookin at you, 29! COME AT ME! 😜😘🐼

Cathay Williams was the first black woman to enlist in the army, pretending to be a man. But her story begins long before that. I encourage you to take a moment to look get her up.

"He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life." - Muhammad Ali Keeping my BHM post because I feel like many people have already posted on Ali. But here's how he impacted my life: As a former boxer, I studied old tapes of famous boxers. Muhammad Ali was an obvious choice considering his legendary status. In the ring, the man was a FIGHTER. Outside of the ring, he was a poet, political figure, and role model. I remember researching the "Rumble in the Jungle" fight for an essay in high school. I picked the topic because, as a sports enthusiast, the "Rumble" resonated throughout the world. As someone who stood up against the Vietnam Draft, he was stripped of his Heavyweight Title. However, after beating undefeated champ George Foreman in the eighth round, Ali not only stood by his talents but also his values. One of the valuable pieces advice I have heard is this: No matter what you do, where you go, or who you are, ALWAYS maintain your character. I thought about what character meant for a very long time, but, seeing Ali, I realized I only needed to be myself, no matter what. RIP Ali. He was the greatest, and he said that even before he knew he was. #ali #muhammadali #boxing #boxer #blackhistorymonth #bhm #excellence #persistence #motivation #rolemodel #throwback #blackhistorymonth2020 #knockout #boxingtraining #muhammad #february #american #beyourself

Maya Angelou was an American author, actress, screenwriter, dancer, poet and civil rights activist best known for her 1969 memoir, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, which made literary history as the first nonfiction bestseller by an African American woman. Angelou received several honors throughout her career, including two NAACP Image Awards in the outstanding literary work (nonfiction) category, in 2005 and 2009. Angelou was born on April 4, 1928, in St. Louis, Missouri. Angelou had a difficult childhood. Her parents split up when she was very young, and she and her older brother were sent to live with their father's mother in Stamps, Arkansas. As an African American, Angelou experienced firsthand racial prejudices and discrimination in Arkansas. She also suffered at the hands of a family associate around the age of 7: During a visit with her mother, Angelou was raped by her mother's boyfriend. As vengeance for the sexual assault, Angelou's uncles killed the boyfriend. So traumatized by the experience, Angelou stopped talking. She returned to Arkansas and spent years as a virtual mute. During World War II, Angelou moved to San Francisco, California. There she won a scholarship to study dance and acting at the California Labor School. Also during this time, Angelou became the first black female cable car conductor in San Francisco. In the mid-1950s, Angelou's career as a performer began to take off. She landed a role in a touring production of Porgy and Bess, later appearing in the off-Broadway production Calypso Heat Wave (1957) and releasing her first album, Miss Calypso (1957). A member of the Harlem Writers Guild and a civil rights activist, Angelou organized and starred in the musical revue Cabaret for Freedom as a benefit for the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, also serving as the SCLC's northern coordinator. In 1961, Angelou appeared in an off-Broadway production of Jean Genet's The Blacks with James Earl Jones, Lou Gossett Jr. and Cicely Tyson. Angelou went on to earn a Tony Award nomination for her role in the play Look Away (1973) and an Emmy Award nomination for her work on the television miniseries Roots (1977), among other honors.

👩🏾‍🦳White Hair Don’t Care👩🏾‍🦳 In fact it’s a statement⚡️ • I’m tossing around the idea of a different hairstyle for our Susie, this is the first one that I’ve had sketched out so naturally it’s the first one we’re taking a look at. I love that signature Susie ‘do because it is all hers and she rocks it, but I might attempt the other hairstyle that I have in mind that makes her look at little older and trying out a different mature style! So we’ll just have to throw both out into the universe and see which one sticks! • So have a look at this inside hair scoop and follow along with @ferg_istheword to see if this is Susie’s true ‘do or if we are going for a different style! 🎶 Music: Pure imagination Musician: Rook1e 🎶

The Potato Chip Was Invented by a Black Man Named George Crum There are a few stories about the invention of the potato chip, but the most reliable ones all center around George Crum, a famous Black chef in the 19th century who served the wealthiest Americans and eventually opened his own wildly successful restaurant. Humble Beginnings Born George Speck around the year 1824 to a Native-American mother and African-American father, he worked as a hunter and guide in upper New York state. During this time, his reputation as a cook earned him a position at Moon’s Lake House Restaurant on Saratoga Lake, where wealthy New England patrons built their summer camps. He became famous for his unique specialties with venison and wild game, and he was encouraged to continue experimenting in the kitchen. The Potato Chip No one is certain about exactly how the potato chip was invented; some claim it was Crum’s sister, working at the same restaurant. Either way, Crum’s experimentation led to the refinement and popularization of chips, which became a local and eventually a regional draw from all New England. His Own Restaurant His wealthy customers included the ultra-rich Cornelius Vanderbilt, who mistakenly called him “Crum” instead of Speck, which George strategically embraced. He used his success there to open his own restaurant in 1860 called Crum’s, with very high-demand – and high-priced – cuisine. Despite his wealthy clientele, he played no favorites and was expressly egalitarian with his food, making the rich wait their turn behind anyone in front of them. Crum served as an inspiration for numerous young Black men and women to explore their skills and creativity. #BlackHistoryMonth2020 #BlackHistoryFact #themoreyouknow #WeAreAmericanHistory #elmwoodchurch #TheWood

February turned out to be a very busy month for us, so we weren’t able to spend as much time as we wanted celebrating Black History Month in a literary fashion. But there are still a couple days left, so I thought I would share my thoughts on the best biography I have read in a very long time: David Blight’s “Frederick Douglass: Prophet of Freedom.” Douglass is an American icon, and for good reason. Not only was the man a prominent orator, writer, and statesman who dedicated his life to social reform, but he did so at a time when American law didn’t even recognize him as a man for much of his life. Born into slavery (sometime in February, he was never quite sure on the date or even who his father was, though he was likely a white man) and separated from his mother in his infancy, Douglass taught himself to read while still in bondage. Then, after he escaped to freedom, Douglass spent the remainder of his life as a spokesperson of the abolitionist movement, convincing many of the cause’s virtue. He regularly spoke out for the equality of African Americans, Indigenous peoples, Chinese immigrants, and women, and he became one of the nation’s most well-known and beloved public figures. David Blight’s Pulitzer Prize-winning biography of this remarkable man is large, but it didn’t feel long while I read it. He accurately portrays Douglass as ahead of his time while still recognizing his faults and shortcomings. It is a comprehensive look at his life, from his days as an enslaved man to his reform efforts in his old age, covering the complexities of his family life, his circle of friends, and his collaborations and disagreements with fellow reformers. Blight’s biggest contribution in this biography is the attention he devotes to Douglass’s later life, during and after Reconstruction, which I found fascinating. I highly recommend this to any and all who want to learn more about Douglass, the Civil War era, and the complicated and contested meaning of American freedom. - RBH

As a @tamuct alum, I had an awesome, yet enlightening time tonight at the lecture series discussing matters in the African American community especially with gender equality & race relations pertaining to Black women. Even more, learning about the political and militant platform of the Black Panther Party was mostly led by Black women in an effort to represent #blackfeminism outside of feminism as a whole before the #MeTooMovement. Better yet, I was informed that the Black Student Union, a new student organization, has been established on campus for current students and alumni to join. I'm most certainly in! #BlackHistoryMonth2020 #BlackExcellence #ForTheCulture #ShareBlackExperiences #LifeEvryVoice #ViewMyStory✌🏿✊🏿

Robert Francis Flemming Jr. (July, 1839 – February 23, 1919) was an African-American inventor & Union sailor in the American Civil War. He was the 1st crew member aboard the USS Housatonic to spot the H.L. Hunley before it sank the USS Housatonic. The sinking of USS Housatonic is renowned as the 1st sinking of an enemy ship in combat by a submarine. Finished his naval service on the gunboat USS E. B. Hale after June 1865 & subsequently returned to Massachusetts, living & working in Cambridge, Massachusetts, & Boston, Massachusetts, where he went into business as a guitar manufacturer & music teacher. Invented a guitar he called the "Euphonica" that he believed would produce a louder & more resonant sound than a traditional guitar. The U.S. Patent Office granted Flemming a patent (no. 338,727) on March 30, 1886. In 1907, he composed a "National Funeral Hymn" dedicated to the Grand Army of the Republic. He is buried in Wyoming Cemetery in Melrose. #BlackHistoryMonth2020 #Blackinventors #blackinventions #blackmenintech #BlackGenius #blackhistoryyoudidntlearninschool #blackhistoryinthemaking #celebrateblackhistory #blackhistoryisworldhistory #blackamericatoday #blackrevolutionary #blackstudies #africanamericanhistorymonth #africanamericanstudies #africanamericanliterature #blackagenda #blackempowermentmovement #blackhistoryisamericanhistory #blackhistoryiseveryday #blackhistory365✊🏾 #iamblackhistory #realblackpower #realblackhistory #blackpowermatters #Africanamericanhistory #thegreatawakeningofafricanamericans #BlackExcellence✊🏾 #blackeducationmatters #proudtobeblack #blackmusichistory

#BlackHistoryFact Nathan “Nearest” Green , a slave owned by a farmer and reverend named Dan Call, taught Jack Daniels how to make whiskey. Members of Calls congregation expressed their disapproval of his whiskey business, so he turned his distillery over to Jack. Everyone in the small town near Lynchburg Tennessee knew that the whiskey being made at the distillery was made by Green. Once the civil war ended, Green became a free man and continued to worked as head distiller, making him the first African American Master Distiller. Many believed his was the one who perfected the Lincoln County Process (a special way to make Tennessee whiskey.) He is The Godfather of Tennessee Whiskey. The company, called Uncle Nearest, honors the first known African American master distiller in the country. Fawn Weaver, who launched Uncle Nearest distillery, is the first female and person of color to run a major whiskey brand. Uncle Nearest small batch is my favorite. ___________________________ #blackhistorymonth #blackhistorymonth2020 #blackhistoryfacts #blackexcellence #blackentrepreneurs #whiskey #tennessee #tennesseewhiskey #drinks #cocktails #whiskeygram #whiskeylover #bartender #privatebartender #events #parties #hosting #entrepreneur #business

CECIL WILLIAMS - My man was like "I give absolutely ZERO %#[email protected] about your stupid water fountain rule..." HA! I love this guy! . Last year he opened the Cecil Williams Civil Rights Museum to house hundreds of images and artifacts from the civil rights movement that also doubles as the neighborhood community center. . Be like Cecile, people. BE LIKE CECIL! . #BlackHistory #BlackExcellence #History #PeopleWeShouldKnowAbout #BlackHistoryMonth2020 #IfYaDontKnowNowYaKnow #RacismSucks #BeBold
