Had to give my self "The crying Jordan face" at the end of this post. But this is what's so beautiful about #brokenignorance 🎩💡 page. I had to break my own ignorance about black history and using the phrase, "Uncle Tom." I do apologize for my ignorance especially when it comes to black history and old phrases everyone has to be careful on the meanings and make sure we all use them in the correct manner. I was irresponsible trying exposing a Sambo trying to destroy my message in one of my previous post. He called me ignorant but it wasn't because he knew what Uncle Tom meant let me clear on that. But because I used an old phrase in 2018. I had the right decade but but used the wrong name. And also let me make another thing clear any coonery or sambos are brace enough to speak up then they are giving me permission to expose them. I'm so glad my ignorance was broken and hopefully yours is as well. Make sure next time to inform others of the phrases "Uncle Tom" and "Sambo." is as well. Make sure next time to inform others of the phrases "Uncle Tom" and "Sambo." I must research and read "Uncle Tom's Cabin."
Peace & Love Soul Family! Honored to be present Sunday September 16th at the MEN'S DAY Celebration at Union Temple Baptist Church in Washington, DC paying homage to the 1995 MILLION MAN MARCH. It was 23 years ago that Minister Louis Farrakhan and Rev. Dr. Willie F. Wilson, pastor, coordinated the largest gathering of melanated men in the nation's capital.
On Sunday afternoon, we were honored to receive the leader of the Nation of Islam, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan as our special guest speaker, who spoke on the day's theme: "RIGHTEOUS MEN READY TO RULE." As usual, the Minister electrified the Family, raising the vibration of self-love and unity. A statue bust of the Minister was unveiled and presented to him as a gift commissioned by Rev. Wilson and created by African Artisan Kennard Copeland. Other speakers included Dr. Ben Chavis, Minister Nuri Muhammad @nurimuhammad, Sister Cora Masters, first wife of the Honorable Marion Barry, and more!

Peace & Love Soul Family! It's Sunday and I'm reporting live from Union Temple Baptist Church in Washington, DC., where the Rev. Dr. Willie F. Wilson has been the Sr. Pastor for 45 years. He created an Afrocentric church that embraces the African way of thinking, being and acting. Expressing our unique culture. Opening Ancestral gateways to access the power of the Creator.

Bernard Whitehurst and the Whitehurst Case
On December 2, 1975, Bernard Whitehurst was shot to death by a police officer in Montgomery, Alabama. He died behind a house on Holcombe Street, running from police officers who mistakenly believed he was the suspect in a robbery of a neighborhood grocery store.
The facts were slow to emerge in this shooting of a black man by a white police officer. But investigations urged by the Whitehurst family, the city's daily newspaper, and the local district attorney revealed the following of that tragic event: that Whitehurst, 32, did not match the robbery suspect's description; that he was unarmed, despite police claims that they returned fire after being fired upon; that the gun found by his body had been confiscated by police in a drug investigation a year earlier, and was placed at the scene as part of a police cover-up.
The shooting that cost Bernard Whitehurst his life ultimately led to the resignation of the city's mayor and public safety director, the resignation or termination of eight police officers, and the perjury indictment of three police officers. These events, known collectively as the Whitehurst Case, are considered pivotal in the history of the City of Montgomery. #blackalabama#Blackmontgomery#MontgomeryAlabama#ushistory#Blackhistory#Blackhistory365#blackhistoryfacts#Blackhistoryeveryday#Blackhistoryproject#Blackhistory101

I have always understood that Jamaicans are descendants of enslaved Africans from West Africa & Ghana in particular, but I never realized just how similar our roots run hundreds of years after slavery. Jamaican Maroons keep the Akan traditions & language alive in modern day... much respect to our brothers and sisters in Jamaica 🇯🇲 🇬🇭 Shoutout to @chakabars
When Jamaica’s native son Marcus Garvey shouted for Global Africans to return to Africa, many chanted Haile Selassie I & found home & Rastafari roots in Ethiopia while many others celebrated Osagyefo Kwame Nkrumah & found freedom in Ghana. Today’s Ghana boast a significant Jamaican community brought & empowered by Rita Marley & the memory & foundation of Bob Marley & Marcus Garvey. Jamaicans & native Ghanaian Rastas have created their own governing & financial empowerment council that boasts a credit union called the black star line catering to the financial empowerment needs of Rastafarians in Ghana.
Macedonia Church: The earliest records available show that land for the original site for the Macedonia Church was purchased in 1811 by the Trustees and members of the AFRICAN METHODIST SOCIETY of Flushing, NY,the forerunner of the present Macedonia African American Episcopal Church. It is believed that the Society was actually formed many years earlier by free blacks, Indians and whites, who could have also been ex-slaves. #flushingny#flushingnyc#blackhistoryfacts#blackhistory#nyblackhistory
