Day 1️⃣8️⃣ Many people would not have owned the bikes and motor vehicles they have today if it had not been for MathewACherry’s invention of the tricycle. The African American inventor created several devices that have become very useful for transportation today, including the velocipede, the tricycle and the streetcar fender. Today let us celebrate him 👏🏿👏🏾👏🏽👏🏼👏🏻 BlackHistoryMonth gearup face2faceafrica

When you pay attention you overstand segregation never ended. We are the only ones that give to everyone. Will they have taken every measure to keep us away from them. It’s why I don’t get how and why we chance them for their acceptance. For years they have made it clear they don’t want to live as one people. Especially if it means living next to you.

𝐅𝐥𝐨𝐲𝐝 𝐏𝐚𝐭𝐭𝐞𝐫𝐬𝐨𝐧  1965年にフロイド・パターソンとモハメド・アリの試合が行われた。二人はリング外でも対極する立場にいた。アリは、大胆で声高に分離派を支持していました。フロイドは非常に内向的で、穏やかに話す統合派の活動家でした。ケネディ大統領でさえもこの一戦に介入し、フロイドをモデル市民と称した。アリ対パターソンの試合は公民権運動における対話の側面を持つことになる。  フロイドはその試合に負けました。しかし、彼の謙虚な人格と思慮深さは、敗北後もアメリカに愛されました。モハメド・アリはフロイドについて、「これまでに戦った中で最も偉大な人物」と語っていた。引退後も市民権におけるボクシングスポーツの活動家として尽力する。彼はアマチュアクラブを開き、ニューヨークの子供たちをカウンセリングなども行っていた。  BlackHistoryMonth FloydPatterson Everlast#ボクシング blackhistory civilrights everlast フロイドパターソン エバーラスト ボクシング 黒人月間 ボクサー ヘビー級 repost everlast

Repost neci_the_royal ( get_repost) ・・・ George Junius Stinney Jr. was born October 21, 1929 & executed June 16, 1944. He was an African-American teenager wrongfully convicted at age 14 of the murder of two white girls in 1944 in his hometown of Alcolu, South Carolina. His execution took place in June of that year, still only 14. His appeal to the governor for clemency was denied. He was one of the youngest Americans to be sentenced to death and executed. A re-examination of the Stinney case began in 2004, and several individuals and Northeastern University School of Laworganized to seek a judicial review. His conviction was vacated in 2014 when a court ruled that he had not received a fair trial. 83DaysTheMovie injustice injusticestillexist wrongfullyconvited blackhistisamericanhistory blackhistorymonth blackhistory365 georgestinneyjr youngestexecuted HowYouLivin RoyaltyPromotions

BlackHistoryMonth | Richard Wright was an African-American novelist. He is best known for the novel Native Son (1940), which describes the life of an African-American youth in white-dominated Chicago, and Black Boy (1945), an account of the author's boyhood in the South—slavery, racism, hunger, humiliation & trauma. He also wrote short stories and non-fiction. | I am currently reading Black Boy & I am in love already. Wright was one of the first renowned black authors that exposed the darkness & atrocity that was taking place in America—during his time, a black man having a say at all was figment of imagination, but he used his gift to tell his truth & in doing so, America’s (dark) truth. Unapologetic, fearless & bold—that is black history.

Music and books - sometimes it’s combo like oil & water, But sometimes it’s smooth, like marshmallow fluff and peanut butter. (Just try it. It’s wonderful.) . It’s a tough feat, to so richly describe music/sound through the silent experience of reading. To give the notes sound through written word alone. But James Baldwin accomplishes the it in his short story, “Sonny’s Blues.” The imagery is so rich. And it perfectly shows someone who is somewhat lost in life, but perfectly at home inside the notes My favorite quote from the story, one which is so lyrical and flows like water: "Up there, keeping the beat with his whole body, wailing on the fiddle, with his eyes half closed, he was listening to everything, but he was listening to Sonny. He was having a dialogue with Sonny. He wanted Sonny to leave the shoreline and strike out for the deep water. He was Sonny's witness that deep water and drowning were not the same thing-he had been there, and he knew. And he wanted Sonny to know. He was waiting for Sonny to do the things on the keys which would let Creole know that Sonny was in the water.” - “Sonny’s Blues,” James Baldwin .

Gwendolyn Brooks 1917-2000 Gwendolyn always had a true love for language. She published her first poem by age 13, and at age of 16 she got the chance to meet famous black riders James Walden Johnson and Langston Hughes, who both encourage her writing. Johnson became a mentor to her and urged her to read other poets, such as T. S. Elliott and Ezra Pound. Gwendolyn made a name for herself as a writer who focused on the black experience and highlighted the lives of ordinary black folks. In 1945, she published her first collection of poems about black life, titled a street in Bronzeville, which earned her significant critical acclaim. In 1949, she wrote another collection of Poems, about the coming of the age of black women, called Annie Allen. In 1950, it was awarded the Pulitzer Prize, the most distinguished literary honor in the country. This made Gwendolyn the first African American woman to win the award. She loved the magic that different writing technique could produce, so she put all of her technical skills to work. It was unique piece of writing with complex wordplay and creative structure. She focused on small everyday problems to illuminate larger issues and themes, such as a woman's role in society. In the 1960s she was largely influenced by a group of Writers who had a strong desire to write poems for black people, by black people, and about black people. This affected her style, which soon became sparser and less technical. Gwendolyn's writing was always a reflection of the times and the world around her, most important, a reflection of the African American Experience. gwendolynbrooks blackgirlsrock blackhistory blackhistorymonth blackexcellence blackpower melanin blackgirlmagic blackandproud blackculture blackwoman history africanamerican blackunity blacklivesmatter

But wait there's more! As I mentioned in my last post, the artwork in the exhibition was as eclectic as the attendees, which I think speaks to the vibrancy of Newark and its surrounding cities. Not to mention the art scene itself. Again, I can't tell you all the artists in the show, but they are definitely worth checking out. And isn't visiting the new akwaabagallery a great reason to check them out? Also, since you're here, give them a follow here on Instagram so you can keep up with their events, exhibitions and plans for the future. 😎

This past Friday evening, a few members of Team gallery_aferro made our way over to the Grand Opening of the akwaabagallery in Newark's West Ward. To borrow from a Waller classic, the joint was jumpin', as countless artists, art enthusiasts, and community supporters showed up to take in this new beautiful art space and opening exhibition. These are just a few pics (and video) I captured that evening. The exhibition, "With Shackles We Fly," is a wonderful amalgamation of different artworks across a variety of media, ages and backgrounds just like the attendees that evening. My only regret was not getting a takeaway of all the artists' names and artworks. (They ran out of takeaways because again, the joint was jumpin'.) 🤗🤗🤗
