Dark skin African peoples built the best civilizations and never get credited for it. Our Canaani ancestors built their own too (Phenicians etc) but they were mostly merchants and travelled a lot. That's why their legacy has been easily destroyed. #blackhistory#history
Why is it that the black community is the only community that is constantly being torn down? After all that struggle endured against Jim Crow laws and racist policies, we tear down historically black neighborhoods in the year 2019? That is unacceptable to me. If elected, i will fight to protect and invest in these communities. If there is any economic benefit coming from development, it needs to be equal and mutually agreed upon and not forced by way of higher property taxes. #houston #blackhistory

I love @hyperallergic for its unique and inclusive stance on the force that derives from the arts movement during these divisive times. They’ve just published their list of top books for 2019, definitely worth a look if you’re looking to buy a treat for a creative or for yourself 🌹

Established in 1906, Black Wall Street (originally known as Greenwood Avenue) was a prominent African American community located in the Greenwood District in the city of Tulsa, Oklahoma.
It was a very strong community of more than 10,000 Black residents who owned their own businesses, schools, restaurants, hotels, a hospital, a bank, and more.
Sadly in 1921, the whole neighborhood was burned down after being attacked by a white lynch mob.
I have NEVER been taught that the kingdom of Kush, Nubia in Greek, located in ancient Egypt was a prosperous and advanced civilization in southern Egypt, in Sudan. WHY ARE ADVANCED CIVILIZATIONS IN ANTIQUITY MUTED AND ERASED FROM HISTORY IF THEY DEPICT PROSPEROUS NON-EUROPEAN, NON-ARAB, BLACK PEOPLE???? WHY HAVE HISTORIANS BRAINWASHED US AND KNOWINGLY ERASED BLACK CIVILIZATIONS FROM HISTORY?
I am pissed. Why? Because my thinking has been manipulated. I am mad because we hold Europe as the epitome of advancement and knowledge WHILE Black Africans most likely had so much to give to the world while Europeans were grunting and spear chucking.
I majored in this topic in college and STILL Black African ancient Egypt was muted to me. I feel sad. I feel betrayed. I feel shortchanged. #nubia#blackhistory#egypt#sudan#liesmyteachertoldme#wkamaubell#africa#africanhistory#uninformed
