"On this Veterans Day we remember Medgar Evers who returned from active duty from World War II to be turned away from the polls when he tried to vote. He dedicated himself to fighting for voting rights; investigating race-based murders of African Americans including Emmett Louis Till, Rev. George W. Lee, and more as NAACP field secretary; organizing NAACP Youth Councils; supporting James Meredith's right to attend Ole Miss; and more until he was murdered in June of 1963, leaving behind his wife and three young children." _

So after my last class (shout out to #Medgarevers) I went across the street to have an adult BEV and sat next to this beautiful #BLACK young woman at the bar.  We began to speak and during our convo she mentioned she has a disease called #NUEROFIBROMATOSIS, which in her case affects her facial features in the eye region. I think what affected me the most was hearing that she is constantly harrassed.  The bullying this young woman receives from our fellow students here at Medgar is appalling and NO its not all of the students....just the senseless idiots with no moral values.  I was SHOCKED and INSPIRED at the time...This young woman has a story to tell and I am going to tell it.  I've scheduled with a her a complimentary #PHOTOSHOOT and I would also like to submit her story to a Magazine, Radio, or any other PLATFORM.  We need to continue in our efforts to raise awareness to this foolishness.  SHE ALSO GRADUATES WITH HER BA NEXT SPRING....STAY TUNED!!!@la_curvyboss #btfl #billyblunt #bbmagazine @ricardoandrephoto ***PLEASE HELP***

💔🖤 @melissadeno2 Thank-you undetared tireless Works Sis . My Admirable  Respect & Strengths of a Mother on a civil journey #SilentPrayers in seeking #justicefordanyejones The truth is that what beloved One's  seeks, to hide and cover up will eventually work its way up to the light and become known even at the darkest hour of other #crimes . In #Genesis4, #God says to Cain, "Your brother's blood cries out to me from the ground! #JusticeforDanyeJones #17october2018 As I watch the unfolding of events around us and all over the world, I've noticed a pattern emerging. I see this pattern as an undercurrent reality which certainly is present in today's chaotic world. Bt I also see it in our history, where  past blunders and mistakes litter the historic landscape.
This pattern exists in each individual lifestyle & at the national and international level as well. This pattern is no respecter of persons, It operates among the rich and the poor, the #black, the #white, the Latino  and Asian. It is manifested in businesses, both small & great,& is present in our nation's politics.
This pattern is real truth, a universal fact that works all the time in all places and among all peoples. This pattern is not only a general truth but a biblical truth that God himself has incorporated into the very fabric of existence. God has spoken it to us in his holy word, the Bible, & ensures its operation.
This pattern is the Law of Hypocrisy Unmasked. Any One seen a threat in succession of those at the top ,becomes an enemy within innocence of our new generations what good is doing good in a world that destroys goodness deeds is a part of judgment. This truth & operational principle declares & forces all secret things 2 eventually come 2 light. question is not if things will come 2 the light but when?
Therefore, as I watch events unfold past #Grenfelltower #Ferguson, Baltimore, & #McKinney, Texas, I know that what is done in the dark will come to light evn if the events are historical in nature, such as the #MedgarEvers murder case & other civil rights injustices, the Armenian genocide, the Bosnian genocide or the #massmurder of 6 million #Jews by the #Nazis. God Sees All.#Expore

Happy Birthday Ruby Hurley (November 7, 1909 - August 9, 1980)! This Civil Rights activist was part of the committee who arranged Marian Anderson’s historic performance on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. In 1943, she was appointed National Youth Secretary of the NAACP, and increased the number of youth councils and college chapters fro 26 to over 280 in seven years. She was of the NAACP delegation that investigated the murders of minister George W. Lee and Emmett Till. After the Brown v. Board ruling, she worked to implement integration in the South. in 1956, she helped prepare the case for Auterine Lucy to integrate the University of Alabama. After being forced to flee Alabama, she relocated with Atlanta and opened an NAACP regional office. She then helped with the integration of the University of Georgia. After the assassination of Medgar Evers, she convinced his widow, Myrlie Evers to have him interred at Arlington National Cemetery.

Exercised my right this evening. Despite conspiracies, personal doubts, or disbeliefs, it’s amazing to have this right and to truly have the #freedom to exercise an opinion.

✨
.
Many #Brown people were physically harmed/died for trying to vote. Some were given misinformation to ensure they never made it to the polls in time.. most were emotionally and mentally threatened to keep them away from casting a ballot.

I walked into my polling precinct this evening without a fear for my personal safety..

I embraced my pen.
I darkened my selections.
I walked out, unharmed, and proud.

@indiragw, Izzy & I did our part today! Can’t tell by the smiles on our faces but getting here was definitely a struggle. But, still nothing compared to the dog attacks, police beatings, water hoses, arrests & assassinations our elders endured to secure this right for us! 🙏🏾 #ivoteforthem  #johnlewis #medgarevers #mlk #vote2018 #midtermsmatter #dontcomplain #vote
In school we only learned about one hero and that was MLK. Granted, he was a hero but not the only one. I voted today to honor one of my hero’s who we don’t talk about enough. Medgar Evers. He fought tirelessly and was murdered just  for black people like me can go vote. RIP to the hero. Hope I made you proud.

I'm seeing too many people trying to intellectualize their indifference by  persuading other people that voting doesn't matter. Why does it matter locally? Let's see school superintendents, state attorney general, bond spending (your money) appelate judges etc. Why does it matter nationally? Two words, SUPREME COURT. Some ppl are impervious to shame so I won't bring up the sacrifices of our ancestors but look at these elected officials gerrymandering districts, purging rolls, attacking civil/women's rights etc. and tell me how you can responsibly leave the fate of your family & community in their hands? Because that's exactly what you're doing if you abstain from the process. Let's be clear, there is NO silver bullet. No one thing can cure our society of its deep ills, change will be and has always been incremental and arduous. But know this, voting is a fundamental part of a multi layered approach to combatting systemic racism & inequality and if you don't have the endurance to see this process through to the end, then politely get the hell out of the way so everyone else can get you closer to the freedoms that you're unwilling to fight for yourself....*steps off soapbox* Now thank you to everyone that came to our 1st ever voting kickback, it was a great success and we'll definitely be doing it again. Let's stay informed and motivated, the road is long but we didn't come this far to quit now. Word to Fannie Lou, Medgar Evers, Shirley Chisholm, John Lewis and er'body else.

In 1979, James Baldwin wrote a letter to his literary agent describing his next project, "Remember This House." The book was to be a revolutionary, personal account of the lives and assassinations of three of his close friends: Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr. At the time of Baldwin's death in 1987, he left behind only 30 completed pages of this manuscript. Filmmaker Raoul Peck envisions the book James Baldwin never finished

Not that you should need any #motivation to get out & #vote tomorrow, but in case you have friends, family members, co-workers, or neighbors who aren’t enthusiastic about doing so, show them these pictures and remind them that effigies were still being strung up to intimate black voters during the #JimCrow era.

Remind them that #MedgarEvers, #JamesChaney, #AndrewGoodman, #MichaelSchwerner, #ViolaLiuzzo, #RevGeorgeLee, #LamarSmith, #HerbertLee, #CplRomanDucksworthJr, #RevJamesReeb, #JimmieLeeJackson, #JonathanMyrickDaniels, #SamuelLeamonYoungeJr, #VernonFerdinandDahmer, & many nameless & faceless others gave their lives for our #suffrage.

Remind them that Southern trees bear #strangefruit.

Do your #civicduty tomorrow and cast your vote. Then text, call, or e-mail people in your network & tell them to do the same. People sacrificed and died to make it possible for us to go to the #polls. They wouldn’t be trying to suppress our vote for generations if it didn’t mean a lot.

For this week's #SocialJusticeSunday we're honoring Medgar Evers. Evers work with civil rights began with his involvement in the Regional Council of Negro Leadership (RCNL). Later Evers helped the NAACP sue the University of Mississippi for discrimination and although they lost the case Evers was not done righting for what he believed in. "Evers became the first field secretary for the NAACP in Mississippi... As state field secretary, Evers traveled around Mississippi extensively, recruiting new members for the NAACP and organizing voter-registration efforts. Evers also led demonstrations and economic boycotts of white-owned companies that practiced discrimination. While a virtual unknown elsewhere, Evers was one of Mississippi's most prominent civil rights activists. He fought racial injustices in many forms, including how the state and local legal systems handled crimes against African Americans. Evers called for a new investigation into the 1955 lynching of Emmett Till, a 14-year-old African-American boy who had allegedly been killed for talking to a white woman. He also protested the conviction of his fellow Mississippi civil rights activist Clyde Kennard on theft charges in 1960. Evers's efforts made him a target for those who opposed racial equality and desegregation. He and his family were subjected to numerous threats and violent actions, including a firebombing of his house in May 1963, shortly before his assassination."

For this week's #SocialJusticeSunday  we're honoring Medgar Evers. Evers work with civil rights began with his involvement in the Regional Council of Negro Leadership (RCNL). Later Evers helped the NAACP sue the University of Mississippi for discrimination and although they lost the case Evers was not done righting for what he believed in. "Evers became the first field secretary for the NAACP in Mississippi... As state field secretary, Evers traveled around Mississippi extensively, recruiting new members for the NAACP and organizing voter-registration efforts. Evers also led demonstrations and economic boycotts of white-owned companies that practiced discrimination.

Medgar Evers was shot by a sniper carrying a box of tshirts that said "Jim Crow Must Go"

Sammy Young was the first #college #activist murdered during that era. He was trying to integrate a whites only restroom at a gas station when he was shot in the face. His #activism included #voter registrations and driving #voters to the polls. He was a #veteran too and he was just trying to use the damn bathroom (that's why we vote)

I cried when they shot Medgar Evers
Tears ran down my spine
I cried when they shot Mr. Kennedy
As though I'd lost a father of mine

But Malcolm X got what was coming
He got what he asked for this time
So love me, love me, love me
I'm a liberal...

✌🏾DailyVibe: Hate. We’ve all felt it. For some it is just a moment. For other it is all consuming. It was the thought that drove us to behave outside of our norm. But while we felt it, what about the source? Did the cause of your hate know? What did it change for them? To hate a person is to change yourself. It fills you with a darkness & is the cloud the blocks out the sun in your soul. Don’t let the darkness steal your light✌🏼

"Une partie de ma responsabilité de témoin consistait à me déplacer autant et aussi librement que possible, pour écrire l'histoire et la faire paraître".
Selon James Baldwin, "l'histoire n'est pas le passé. C'est le présent. Nous portons notre histoire avec nous. Nous sommes notre histoire". En 1979, il se lancer dans le projet de raconter "son histoire de l'Amérique" à travers l'histoire de trois de ses amis, trois fervents militants qui furent assassinés entre 1963 et 1968 : Medgar Evers, Malcolm X et Martin Luther King Jr.
Un projet qui servira de matière première au réalisateur Raoul Peck pour son documentaire I am not your negro : textes écrits par Baldwin, interviews, extraits de films, photos et vidéos d'époque... En bref, un formidable travail qui montre ce qu'est l'histoire des Noirs en Amérique, un documentaire qui vaut la peine d'être vu, lu, commenté et aimé ❤
"Vous ne pouvez pas me lyncher et me garder dans des ghettos sans devenir vous-mêmes des monstres. De plus vous me donnez un terrible avantage. Vous n'avez jamais eu à me regarder. Moi j'ai dû vous regarder. J'en sais plus sur vous que vous sur moi. On ne peut pas changer tout ce qu'on affronte, mais rien ne peut changer tant qu'on ne l'affronte pas".

October 26 is annually designated as National Day of the Deployed.

National Day of the Deployed honors all of the brave men and woman who have been deployed, are sacrificing, or have sacrificed their lives to defend our country. The day also acknowledges their families who are separated from them during deployment and the sacrifices they make in order for their family members to serve our country. #mecvets #medgarevers #medgareverscollege #militarymonday #StudentVeterans #MedgarMADE #MedgarEversFamily #CUNYVets2018 #CUNYVets #Army #Navy #AirForce #CoastGuard #Marines #MedgarEversCollege #CUNY #CUNYFirst #college #collegelife #studentlife #student #veteran #veterans #red #deployed

a series of photos taken in clarksdale, mississippi. band was in town to headline @deepbluesfestival and any American understands the space mississippi occupies in our national psyche. i have kept her at bay, afraid to get too close for fear she would swell up like the river named after her and snatch my life away. i think of the delta air that swole up and ate #emmitttill and #medgarevers this was a real life monster for many black americans. mississippi has stood at an unhealed stand still in my mind. so to take my band, a majority of us black, down into the delta to play our blues and find healing there, to hear my boys laugh out in the night unafraid, the very portrait of #blackboyjoy shifted something inside of me. it made me less afraid, more able and empowered to smile inside my blackness in the Mississippi night.

Yesterday, I visited the #medgarevers #assassinationsite in the evening we saw this gun.  The gun that was used to take his life.  The .306 bullet went through Mr Evers, the exterior wall of his house, through the kitchen wall and ricocheted in that room coming to rest next to a watermelon that the family was going to share that evening.

#nanoprep this morning as I delve into research for my short story anthology based on Jazz music. .
.
Today I am being led on the story behind #mississippigoddamn by #ninasimone which became her #protestsong about the assassination of #medgarevers on June 12th 1963. He was shot outside his house by a white supremacist after protesting for equality for people of colour. .
.
The novelist #eudorawelty wrote a short #firstpersonaccount of the event from the perspective of the KKK suspect which I have also had the pleasure of reading. If you are interested, it's called 'Where Is The Voice Coming From?' and is available in #thenewyorker archives.
.
.
Together with pictures of his house, the blood around his car and bulletholes.in his window, I now have a clear idea of how to write it. Simone's lyrics when read today show how 1960s racist attitudes are still alive today.

“I Am Not Your Negro.” @iamnotyournegro I had the opportunity to view and discuss this thought provoking Academy Award nominated documentary with a group of awesome artists. It’s based on James Baldwin’s unfinished manuscript “Remember This House.” It tells the story of race in America and also gives his personal account of the lives and assassinations of his friends Malcolm X, Martin Luther King Jr, and Medgar Evers. Unfortunately a lot of his words still ring true today! It’s definitely worth watching! #JamesBaldwin #Author #Writer #RememberThisHouse #SamuelLJackson #Documentary #Film #MartinLutherKingJr #MalcolmX #MedgarEvers #Race #Racism #CivilRights #Equality #Inequality #CivilRightsMovement #WeShallOvercome #Black #White #BlackLivesMatter #Vote #Injustice #Movie #IAmNotYourNegro

There is really no way to definitively answer the question of how long embalming will make a body last. There are just too many variables! We've gone into more detail about some of the factors that can affect this in a previous post. Here, we're  just going to take a look at some cases when embalmed bodies have been exhumed years after being buried, note the surrounding conditions, and see what we can observe. These are all murder cases that required further investigation. In my opinion, all four are very well preserved.
.
Image 1: Elizabeth Ratliff, exhumed 17 years after burial.
Conditions: Sealed steel casket within a concrete vault in sandy, arid soil. Body had been strongly preserved for shipment back to home state.
Background: The body needed to be exhumed in order to determine the exact cause of death. Bruising around the scalp, neck, and brain surface, only still evident due to the well kept condition of the body, proved that she had been beaten and ruled out the original theory that she had fallen down the stairs.
.
Image 2: 29 year old Jane Doe, exhumed 24 years after burial.
Conditions: Unknown.
Background: Stabbed to death in home, 1980. The discoloration under the nose is evidence of purge.
.
Image 3: Medgar Evers, exhumed 28 years after burial.
Conditions: Sealed steel casket within sealed concrete vault. Hillside depth 12', Virginia. This body had also been strongly preserved for shipment across state lines.
Background: Shot to death in front of his own home, 1963. Original autopsy report missing, body exhumed to determine trajectory of bullets.
.
Image 4: Robert Curley, exhumed 3 years after burial.
Conditions: Unknown.
Background: Suspected murder case, exhumation helped prove he was killed by his wife in 1990. Large quantities of poison were still present in the GI tract. The black spots in the photo are evidence of mold.
.
What do you think about the work these embalmers did? Would you like to be embalmed? .
