If we’re being honest we can become so envious over someone else’s blessings that we start to complain to God for not giving us the things we want. He knows the desires of our hearts so REST. He will give you what you NEED in due time. ❤️

Jeremiah Haralson was born near Columbus, Georgia on April 1, 1846. The slave of Georgia planter John Haralson, he was taken to Alabama where he remained in bondage until 1865. It is unclear as to what he did in the earlier years of his freedom, but there are records that suggest he may have been a farmer and clergyman. Haralson taught himself to read and write and later became a skilled orator and debater.
In 1868, Haralson made his first unsuccessful attempt for a seat in the Forty-first Congress, representing Alabama’s First District of Alabama. Two years later he won a seat in Alabama’s House of Representatives and in 1872 was elected to the State Senate. In 1874 Haralson again ran for the U.S. House of Representatives. Haralson narrowly won the Republican primary over Liberal Republican Frederick G. Bromberg. Soon after the primary Bromberg accused Haralson of voter fraud and sought to deny him his seat. The Democrats who controlled the U.S. House of Representatives supported Haralson and on March 4, 1875 he took his seat in Congress. #congress#blackhistory
Dishes like Yakamein are the reason why I cook. The history of this noodle soup are of Chinese-creole origin. It is believed that it was created by Chinese immigrants that traveled to Nola from Ca while working on the railroads. Learning the history of this dish taught me something about my family legacy, and explains to me how my great great grandfather (Chinese) ended up having a child in Louisiana with a black/Cherokee woman. #LearnYourHistory#BlackHistory#SoundsOfTheSouth#SouthernCusine @chefsfeed
Maria Chiquiquirá Díaz, was an Afro-Ecuadorian woman enslaved in Guayaquil, Ecuador in the 1700’s. She was the first slave in Ecuador to win her freedom.
Maria, who was enslaved by Presbyter Afonso Cepeda de Arizcum Elizondo, entered a legal battle for her and her daughter’s freedom in May 1794 and changed the course of her history and for thousands of black women in Ecuador. #Ecuador#BlackHistory#AfroLatina
