(SWIPE ⬅️) Today was monumental for me & my family in many ways. As an educator, a mentor, a servant in the body of Christ, a black man, I take my history seriously. As a child, my Parents took our family on trips across the country several times a year constantly showing us that the world was bigger than "the block". They, along with my late Grandparents ALWAYS told us to be grateful & reminded us of their childhood concerning life as a Colored person in the early 1900's & beyond. The the trips that stuck with me the most were the ones where they snuck those "boring" educational tours into our fun filled summer vacations 🤦🏾♂️😄. Little did I know, they were only sowing seeds that would grow into an appreciation of knowing my legacy and cultural history. @missy_mac1 & I were too excited about taking our children to visit some historic sites in #ATL . Watching my oldest as her eyes lit up in the museum while she referenced books & black history lessons that she's either learned in school or our historical black movies was a beautiful thing. I even learned some NEW things myself!Unfortunately, many of the racist history she saw today...has a remnant that is very alive today.
Overall, it's such a blessing to pour all aspects of WORTH into the hearts and minds of our children. It is our responsibility to make them aware & properly educate each generation of their history. Life is so much MORE than owning a bunch of Jordan's, Red Bottoms or having the most followers on social media. Make life count. Go #BeGreat and let people remember you for the lives you positively effected vs the ones you either did nothing for or damaged. #ImEncouraged#BlackHistory#365Black#MelaninPoppin#MarcusMcFarlin#MacNation#MacSquad4Life#ATL ✊🏾

BLACK HISTORY HIGHLIGHTS (Gwendolyn Sawyer Cherry) Gwen Cherry, as she was known by many, was born in Miami on August 27th, 1923. She was the daughter of Dr. William B. Sawyer, a pioneer black physician in Miami who was instrumental in the founding of Christian Hospital.
After earning an undergraduate degree in biology and chemistry from Florida A&M University in 1946, Cherry furthered her education by earning a master's degree from New York University. She then became the first black woman to enroll in University of Miami's School of Law, later completing her law degree at Florida A&M's College of Law in 1965. She became the first black woman to pass the Florida Bar exam and practice law in Dade County.
Throughout her various careers, Cherry fought for the rights of minorities and women. She worked first as a teacher, then as an attorney and in 1970, won a difficult election to become the first black woman elected to the Florida Legislature.
She died in a car accident in 1979 while serving her 4th term. Gwen Cherry Park, located at 2591 Northwest 71st Street in Miami, is named in her honor.
