I came out of my meditation practice this morning with a clear directive that i must step in fully with something i care deeply about. the voice said, “ barb you were made for these times.” • so i sat down again for a few minutes in quiet and began repeating this prayer that changed my life in 1984 πŸ’« “god grant me the serenity to accept the things i cannot change, the courage to change the things i can, and the wisdom to know the difference.” • put this into practice my loves and ask for the wisdom of clarity on your path and the courage to do it. • i’ll share more soon on the directive. πŸ’›πŸ‘ . . #courage #wisdom #love #lovewins #michellemaros #peacefulmindpeacefullife #outerpeacethroughinnerpeace #peacemaker #movement #gandhi #mlk #rosaparks #choosehappiness #inspiration #loveandlight #mindfulness #awareness #motivation #perspective #wordstoliveby #dailyreminder #trusttheprocess #meditation #lightworker #notetoself #positivethoughts

Only the real will remember! “our friend martin,” the animated movie about a child who goes back in time & befriends dr. martin luther king, jr. it was a great movie to show children of all ages how martin luther king grew up from his childhood, even when he went to #morehouse, until the moment he was assassinated at the motel, on the balcony, during the civil rights era. raise a ✊🏾 to bring this awareness back to our youth. teach them while they’re young! —————————————- #hbcugradtbt #hbcugradstaff: @happyfeetjones #hbcu #hbcugrad #hbcuexcellence #hbcuexperience #drmartinlutherkingjr #mlk #ourfriendmartin #morehouse #morehousecollege #civilrightsmovement #civilrightsleader #activist #martinlutherkingjr πŸ‘‘ #90smovies #90s #blackchildhood #teachthemwhiletheyareyoung #tbt

@afrikanime πŸ’’ "the ebonize factor", illustrated by @artofjamarlogan πŸ’’ artist commentary: "the original image depicts a confrontation between a young man and a police officer during a civil rights protest in nashville in 1964. in the image i drew, the young woman in the photo with a concerned look on her face has been "ebonized". she has the ability to increase her size for protecting others and herself against extreme injustice." πŸ’’ nubiamancy is a horror, fantasy, and science fiction social media platform, and soon-to-be film production company.  watch the video link at the top of the page to learn more. πŸ’’ #fantasy #blackgirl #nubiamancy #martinlutherking #afrocentric #fantasyart #melaninpoppin #illustrations #mlk #blackbeauty #africans #1960s #africanamerican #scifi #blackgirls #characterart #quumba #afrika #blackwomen #characterdesign #sciencefiction #blackamerica #scifiart #blacklivesmatter #beautifulart #blackman #blackmen #civilrights #deviantart #blackart

On december 1, 1955 a white man expected miss rosa parks to give up her seat on the bus and she refused. parks' arrest sparked the #montgomerybusboycott. two months later on february 22, the movement came to a peak when african americans congregated outside the moco jail, as police bought in religious and political figures, including #mlk, for violating the bus segregation laws. eventually, five women residents of montgomery and the @naacp sued the city in u.s. district court to bring an end to the bus segregation laws. - today will forever be a revolutionary day in american history, but we can't stop here. we have so far to go. #blackhistorymonth #knowmorenomore

She gave birth to a king -- only to see that king gunned down as he stood on the balcony of the lorraine motel in memphis, tennessee on april 4, 1968. little did anyone know at the time that just six years later, alberta king (center), mother of slain civil rights icon dr. martin luther king, jr., would herself be gunned down in a vicious and senseless act of violence. it happened on june 30, 1974, at the ebenezer baptist church in atlanta, georgia. there, at a church service, alberta sat at the o***n playing a song when a man stood up and shouted: "you all must stop this! i'm tired of this! and i'm taking over now!" before anyone could process what was happening, the man pulled two pistols from his coat pocket and began firing several rounds at churchgoers. alberta was struck in the head and collapsed immediately. another churchgoer, 69-year-old edward boykin, was also struck in the head and died on the spot. several more churchgoers were wounded. as the gunman paused for a brief moment to reload his guns, a few men from the choir rushed him and pinned him to the floor until police arrived. alberta was rushed to the hospital but pronounced dead a short time later. for the king family this marked the third tragedy in as little as six years, the first being the assassination of mlk in 1968. the second tragedy came a year later when mlk's little brother, alfred king, accidentally drowned in a swimming pool. and now the matriarch of the family, alberta king, was dead too. the gunman, a 23-year-old black man named marcus wayne chenault (3rd and 4th pic), showed no remorse whatsoever for what he had done. in fact, he seemed all too happy to learn that mrs. king had died. chenault later claimed that his intended target was martin luther king, sr., but since sr. wasn't there that faithful day, he targeted mrs. king instead. chenault went on to say that god led him to do what he did, and how the black church was to blame for the conditions black people were in. he blamed the black church for everything and made it his mission to k**l as many black christians as he could...

It was #thisweekinhistory 50 years ago when nearly 1,000 memphis sanitation workers refused to report to work demanding higher wages, safer work conditions, and the recognition of their union. however, despite organizing boycotts, sit-ins, and marches almost daily, the sanitation workers were initially unable to lock down concessions from memphis’ municipal officials. martin luther king, jr. agreed to come to memphis and lead a nonviolent demonstration in support of the sanitation workers, and on march 29 over 5,000 demonstrators, carrying now –iconic signs which read "i am a man," participated. however, things took a turn for the worse when some participants began breaking storefront windows. the ensuing violence resulted in the death of 16 year-old larry payne, who was killed by memphis police officers.  the city then imposed a curfew, and mobilized the national guard. mlk was deeply troubled by the violence and promised to return to memphis and lead a peaceful demonstration. on april 3rd king returned to memphis and delivered what would be his last public speech, the following evening he was assassinated. nearly two weeks later on april 16, the memphis sanitation workers' strike ended when the city agreed to issue raises to african-american employees and recognize their union. #blackhistorymonth #mlk #memphis #iamaman

#artifactoftheday why we can't wait by martin luther king jr., 1964. king published why we can't wait during the 1960s' american civil rights movement. presented in the book is his landmark "letter from birmingham jail," in which he stated: ". . . just as the apostle paul left his village of tarsus and carried the gospel . . . to the far corners of the greco roman world, so am i compelled to carry the gospel . . . beyond my own home town." #blackhistorymonth #museumofthebible #mlk

πŸ–€ #celebrate #blackhistorymonth πŸ–€ @naacp w.e.b. du bois #civil #rights #activist, #educator, #journalist (1868–1963) #webdubois was one of the most important #africanamerican activists during the #first half of the 20th #century. he co-founded the #naacp and supported #panafricanism. scholar and activist w.e.b. du bois was born on february 23, 1868, in great barrington, massachusetts. in 1895, he became the first african american to earn a ph.d. from harvard university. du bois wrote extensively and was the best known spokesperson for african-american rights during the first half of the 20th century. he co-founded the national association for the advancement of colored people (n.a.a.c.p.) william edward burghardt du bois, better known as w.e.b. du bois, was born on february 23, 1868, in great barrington, massachusetts. while growing up in a mostly european american town, w.e.b. du bois identified himself as "mulatto," but freely attended school with whites and was enthusiastically supported in his academic studies by his white teachers. a proponent of pan-africanism, du bois helped organize several pan-african congresses to free african colonies from european powers. du bois died on august 27, 1963 — one day before #mlk jr. delivered his "i have a dream" speech at the march on washington — at the age of 95, in accra, ghana, while working on an encyclopedia of the #african #diaspora.
