Yesterday after my rant on appreciating black history and beauty I told my cousin that we would be going to the library to read about it.

It was not a joke, nor a threat.

Before he picked his book I sat down and had a one-on-one talk with him about the importance of learning our history. At first he was resistant (he hates reading).

But after a while all he could do was smile and he told me that he loved me for making him learn what no one else will.

My heart jumped for joy.

that’s awesome of you.

Thank you

When we got back home he was so excited he couldn’t stop talking about it. I was smiling so hard lol

amen

i firmly believe that most of the black kids that hate reading just need to be given the right books

the books that matter to them

For a meal smoothie, the formula is: Greens + Healthy Fat + Carbohydrate + Protein.
Add optional superfoods to any type of smoothie for a nutritional boost. Here are some of my favorite ingredients:

Now You Know more Black History Facts. (Source)

If you don’t know…

Black excellence on 100

Philis Wheatley was a SLAVE though.  NOT a servant and there is a difference.  Let’s not falsify and sugarcoat the evil and brutal history of slavery, especially slavery of black people, as just a period of being servants.  Philis was a SLAVE.  Yes, her OWNERS taught her to read and write and treated her better than most other slaves were treated, but she was still paraded around like an exhibit and part of the reason she got so famous was because of the anomaly of a SLAVE being able to do what was ILLEGAL.

Ida Bell Wells (July 16, 1862 – March 25, 1931)

"Ida B. Wells began her crusade against the oppression of black people in 1884, when, at the age of sixteen, she sued the Chesapeake and Ohio Railroad for evicting her from a first class car. A teacher and journalist, she began a one-woman anti-lynching campaign after a close friend was murdered. She traveled throughout England and later in the United States gaining support; got married; began the first clubs for black women in the US; started a reading room, shelter, and employment service for black men in Chicago; investigated race riots; and had six children."
