Stanford L. Warren Library became the new home of the historic Durham Colored Library on January 17, 1940. Only the second black library in the state, the Durham Colored Library opened to the public August 14, 1916. Its roots were in a library organized in 1913 by Dr. Aaron Moore in the basement of the old White Rock Baptist Church. Stanford L. Warren Library has been an important community resource and a gathering place for civic and service organizations throughout its history, especially during the civil rights era. The black and white library systems merged in 1966. The branch retains the name of its benefactor, Dr. Stanford L. Warren, who gave $4,000 during the Great Depression to secure the site for the new building. The annex was added in 1949-1950; renovations occurred in 1968, 1984-1985 and 2004-2006. #Ushistory#Blackhistory101#blackhistory365#Blackhistoryeveryday#blackhistoryfacts#Blackhistoryproject#historicalmarkers#Historicalplaces#Historicallocations

🔥This is actual and factual American history, therefore, I’m posting this to bring us all together, not tear us apart... because the more you know, the better off you are. 🔥 “The wealth income gap is huge compared to blacks and whites. For every dollar blacks have, whites have $20. Why? The U.S. government gave whites a advantage through 3 programs. The Headright System, Homestead Act of 1862 and FHA & VA Loans with the process of redlining.” #blackhistory#blackhistorymonth#blackhistoryfacts#blackhistory365#blackhistorymatters
“This documentary depicts the U.S. Eugenic legislation throughout the early 20th Century and chronicles the compulsory sterilization faced by many Americans. "War on the Weak" continues to analyze negative eugenics by discussing the U.S. Supreme Court case of Buck v. Bell. Furthermore, the parallels present among U.S. and Nazi ideologies on the nature of eugenics are presented, along with an exposition on the affinity Nazi scientists had for U.S. eugenics laws. The documentary concludes with a look at modern genetic research and leaves the viewer with the hopeful message of a society free of ailments but warns of the dangers on science that is not kept in check with the moral values of humanity.” #eugenics#blackhistory#blackhistorymonth#blackhistory365#blackhistoryfacts#blackhistorymatters
🔥Keep in mind that the Bayer Corporation has purchased and now owns Monsanto.🔥 “GMOs are made by manipulation of extremely deadly viruses & bacteria (such as E. coli) that have been engineered to be IMMUNE TO ANTIBIOTICS (Pause video at 8:08). Monsanto spends millions of dollars each year in order to "sugar" coat the facts of what GMOs actually are and more importantly, how they are made.
This video straight-forwardly explains the scientific facts on how Monsanto manufactures their GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms) by simply removing all the corporate propaganda, the "smoke & mirrors" if you will.
Monsanto's greed, combined with their quest to monopolize all aspects of food & seed on the planet, has knowingly allowed the proverbial Reaper free upon the world.” #gmos#eugenics#blackhistory#blackhistorymonth#blackhistoryfacts#blackhistory365#blackhistorymatters
“This is an important lesson in corporate accountability by exposing the calous disregard that the drug industry has for the safety of the products it pushes on a largely trusting public. Drugs company Bayer realised their product had been contaminated with AIDS in the 1980’s, so what did they do, they still sold it because they didn't want to lose money, and when the US officials found out, they knew they couldn't continue, so they sold it to the Europeans, with full knowledge of US officials.” #corporategreed#eugenics#blackhistory#blackhistorymonth#blackhistory365#blackhistoryfacts#blackhistorymatters

Robbers, Barons, and Bankers is the second visual from Wise Intelligent's "El Negro Guerrero" (Back 2 School: 3rd Period). The track was produced by The RicanStrucktion, and is a critique of "Main Street" America's sudden protest of , and disgust with its homegrown Robbers Barons, Bankers, Politicians, Bootleggers, and Gangsters. The song addresses the hypocrisy of Main Street America occupying Wall Street and demanding better ONLY after their own jobs were taken, homes stolen and defrauded out of their pensions. While sitting, and watching for decades as America's blacks, working poor and rest of the world suffered for centuries at the hands of the same multi-national robbers, barons and bankers responsible for the creation of both Wall Street and Main Street". #hiphop#rap#rapmusic#hiphopmusic#hiphopmusicvideo#blackhistory#blackhistorymonth#blackhistory365#blackhistoryfacts#blackhistorymatters
Ignatius Sancho is one of many black composers in what the award-winning violinist, Rachel Barton Pine calls a “landmark project that celebrates the discovery of more than 350 Black Classical Composers and over 900 classical works hidden in the shadows.” As the first black composer to publish music in the European tradition, his work demonstrates Sancho's genius as he delicately balances his African heritage and European classical musical composition in the 18th century. The tunes, with French and English titles, were musically styled for popular dance parties where couples would gather for Georgian line-dances and raves.

I think all forms of life represent different stages of evolution. People ask me “if we evolved from primates, how come gorillas & chimpanzees are still around?” That’s like asking why does a platypus exist? A platypus is a mammal with a beak like a bird, lays eggs like a bird/snake. Because of the Pangea shift a lot of ancient animals survived in Australia/Tasmania area. These animals represent an earlier timeline of evolving but still exist today. So yes ancient life can coexist with upgraded evolved life.
Mammals populated the earth over 230 million years ago. So we are the ancestors these early mammals that would continue to evolve and upgrade. In my opinion evolution represents an upgrade throughout a long portion of time. Because as an animal evolves it gets more intelligence. Experience maybe passed down as memory, which makes the upgrade easier as time goes by.
The Sahelanthropus tchadensis in the picture on the top right represents a the oldest form of transition to ancient primate to early hominid. In my previous post about ancient humans “Sahelanthropus tchadensis” is the first on the list, despite how this artist made them look, the “Sahelanthropus tchadensis” is not considered a monkey or ape, it’s the hominid category.
Humans evolving from early primates to Homo sapiens is just a checkmark in evolution. Humans evolved from the earliest forms of life that started water over 700 million years, if you want to put a beginning timestamp on it.
Most blacks don’t understand evolution logic & history, so they give up and say a deity created everything, because they don’t want to research the information.
People say “GOD created the Homosapien” or man. My response is the earth created life, because it appears the earth is understanding itself , and is learning on the job, which explains the why All forms of life have been upgraded thru time. #blackhistoryfacts#knowledgeispower

Paper seems such an ordinary product today, but it has been fundemental to modern civilisation. 1,100 years ago people were manufacturing paper in Baghdad in Muslim Civilisation.
It is believed that the secrets of Chinese paper making were passed on to the people of Baghdad around the year 751.
Very quickly, the art of paper-making was refined and transformed into mass production by the mills of Baghdad. Some of the techniques employed in Baghdad included the use of linen as a substitute for thr bark of the mulberry which the Chinese used. This involved a more refined and improved method of production.
This development facilitated the build of many paper mills in Baghdad from where the industry spread to Damascus which became the major source of supply of paper to Europe; and various other places around the world.
After the industry fllourished in Iraq, Syria and Palestine, it spread west. The first paper mill in Africa was built in Egypt around 850; then a paper mill was built in Morocco from where it reached Spain in 950. In 1293 the first paper mill in Bologna was set up. The first use of paper in England did not come until 1309, then Germany in the late stages of the 14th century. #alandalus#andalucia#muslim#muslimspain#islamicheritage#empire#moors#spain#islamichistory#islam#ilhum#africa#african#mopti#mali mosque #masjid#nigerriver#islamicquotes#zanzibar#tanzania#sultan#blackhistoryfacts#Iran#jamehmosque#isfahan#followforfollowback

I almost shedded a few tears listening to this elder drop nugget after Nugget of wisdom! Like i always say if you want a preview of whats coming to America look at the black community we are the tester 🐖 for their overall agenda.
Owner of a 90+ acre goat farm in the rolling hills & beautiful scenery of Virginia's Blue Ridge Mountains, Renard A. Turner has created an oasis that's fully equipped with its own water supply, food supply, and renewable energy sources. Renard and his wife have been growing food and raising live stock for over 30 years. Both are also over the age of 65 and still going strong on a plant-based diet.
Vanguard Ranch is known for its famous goat burgers and curry goat! For the last 2 years his farm has been home to the Crossroads Music & Food Festivals which embrace music from all genres.
Mr. Turner has a wealth of knowledge that should be cherished by all of our people. But it seems as if we have forgotten just how important food independence is to freedom and liberation. This is the first video in our Series, our goal for this series is to awaken our people to the TRUTH that we must learn, regain, and cultivate the skills necessary for us to work the land. Stable Black communities can only exist if we are able to sustain all of the needs from top to bottom. The very fact that the conversation around farming, agribusiness, agri-tourism, and training are all but non-existent at our tables, and in our gatherings speaks volumes. We need to develop the nomenclature, the stamina, the skills, the knowledge base, and the tools needed to become a stable self sustaining community. Our goal is to start a conversation about these things and began to focus on solutions and training the next generation.
Although many people want to ignore or overlook the Jim Crow era, it cannot be denied that this is real American history and reverberates today in our society via social and political injustices. As horrible and wicked as this time period was, it should not be consider plagiarism to say that we will not forget. Therefore, this is why we must be informed and vote to keep the clock progressing forward in order for America to never return to such inimical practices, because the United States cannot be a great nation if it is not treating all of its people fairly and ethically under the creator (for those that believe) and the law (within the constitution). Now I know the law is not perfect and can be manipulated, but that is why we should treat each other as family so the law and human compassion can be one in Love. #jimcrow#blackhistory#blackhistorymonth#blackhistory365#blackhistoryfacts#blackhistorymatters
(YouTube): Most of my battles with people who think like Donald Trump takes place in the various IG forums (not on my page), that’s why it may seem like my posts are out of the blue. Therefore, this post will tackle the falsehood that Irish Indentured Servants has it much worse that Africans under Chattel Slavery. Most Trump followers will not listen to Ebony people concerning this topic, thus, it’s best to let another white male present the truth to the wilfully ignorant of this society. #blackhistory#blackhistorymonth#blackhistoryfacts#blackhistory365#blackhistorymatters
