The beauty is when your 10 year old son can name each woman by her full name (Keisha 😉)and what her movement is all about! I thank God he is able to witness and try to comprehend the good, bad and ugly when it comes to Civil Rights and politics. He’s lost a few friends in this battle himself. I told him to hold on the battle is not over and May never be for him. 💪🏾#vote#doitforthechildren#AblackboyinAmerica @staceyabrams @oprah @keishabottoms #blackgirlmagic Funny, remember when some of you talked about Oprah! 🙄 Always been down with O! 👊🏾💫 #yougetavote
#pushthrough Niko and I were up last night doing house projects. And although we claimed a great early start, we both weren’t feeling it AT ALL. It was so easy to keep hitting the snooze button that even Cameo’s “Taste like candy” couldn’t get me up and moving. But we motivated each other and pushed through. We made it to @dunkindonuts before school and I’m now here at the @buckheadfamilyy ready for a kickass workout. I pray that anyone who is struggling with that morning passion will find that someone or something to help motivate them not only today but everyday of their future. God thank you for my amazing son who is slowly but surely embracing maturity and leadership right in his own home. #wellkeepservingyou#pushingthrough#music#prayerpartners#morningphonecalls#latenightcalls#dontgiveup#followyourbliss#imblessed#solomonnicholas#ablackboyinamerica
“Mr.President, Friends and Fellow Citizens” “What to a slave, is your Fourth of July?
I answer: a day that reveals to him, more than all other days in the year, the gross injustice and cruelty to which he is the constant victim. To him, your celebration is a sham; your boasted liberty, an unholy license; your national greatness, swelling vanity; your sounds of rejoicing are empty and heartless; your denunciation of tyrants, brass-fronted impudence; your shouts of liberty and equality, hollow mockery; your prayers and hymns, your sermons and thanksgivings, with all your religious parade and solemnity, mere bombast, fraud, deception, impiety, and hypocrisy-a thin veil to cover up crimes which would disgrace a nation of savages.#frederickdouglass#ladiesantislaverysociety#rochester#adayoflearning#theliestheytell#juneteenth#knowledgeispower#solomonnicholas#ablackboyinamerica#thisISamerica
Although there are “good” teachers everywhere. 🙄We recognize and support OUTSTANDING teachers. Teachers who PRAY. Teachers who go over and beyond, teachers who CARE, teachers who speak goodness into you child, teachers who COMMUNICATE, teachers who put themselves in your shoes even if they themselves are not parents, teacher who just simply do what they are called to do. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all educators and staff we know it’s not easy! #blessyou#wesupportyou#SolomonNicholas#MrSmiley#MsO#ablackboyinamerica
Today we laid my grandfather to rest. The past few weeks Niko and I were able to connect through FaceTime and tell him we love him. It's the simple acts that means the most and carry a lifetime memory. #RIH Pastor Eddie Lee Peterson Sr. #ablackboyinamerica
