・・・ @DrHadiyahGreen has become the first person to successfully cure cancer in mice using laser-activated nanoparticles.
Unlike traditional cancer treatments, Green’s revolutionary and unique nanoparticle technology, which was found to successfully cure cancer after testing on mice within 15 days, does not require chemotherapy, radiation, or surgery. Green received a $1.1 million grant from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to expand her nanoparticle cancer treatment research.

Art is a great form of love and celebration. I put my heart and soul into my art in an effort to express our uniqueness and undeniable beauty. We all deserve to be celebrated- especially during Black History Month. Love yourselves and each other!
In honor of black history month (17 of 29), I would like to honor Juanita Elizabeth Jackson Mitchell (January 2, 1913 – July 7, 1992) who was the first BLACK woman to practice law in Maryland. In 1927, Juanita Jackson graduated from Frederick Douglass High School with honors. She applied to both Morgan State College in Baltimore and the University of Maryland in College Park. Juanita was accepted into predominately black Morgan State College; she was denied admissions to the University of Maryland because of her race. After attending Morgan State for two years Mitchell transferred to the University of Pennsylvania. In 1931 she received a bachelor’s degree in education. Four years later, in 1935, she received a master’s degree in sociology from the same institution. In 1947 she returned to an integrated University of Maryland and three years later became the first black woman to receive a law degree from that institution.
After completing her advanced degree Jackson joined the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) staff in Baltimore and soon worked her way into the National office. While there Jackson met Clarence Mitchell, already a rising star in the NAACP. They both vowed to continue working for the NAACP after their marriage on September 7, 1938. For the rest of the 1940s and into the 1950s Mitchell worked on the campaign to end segregation in Maryland. She backed efforts to integrate public accommodations and schools. One 1950 lawsuit she filed with fellow Marylander Thurgood Marshall led to a 1955 U.S. Supreme Court decision desegregating the state parks of Maryland. The decision allowed blacks in the state to use hundreds of municipal and state beaches and swimming pools for the first time. She also participated in the lawsuits which integrated the public schools of Baltimore, which in 1955 became the first southern city to see its schools desegregated.
Juanita Jackson Mitchell also supported the efforts of her husband, now the chief NAACP lobbyist in Congress to get civil rights legislation and in 1970 she campaigned for her brother-in-law Parren J. Mitchell when he was elected as Maryland’s first black congressman.

Black excellence is the 🔑
This past weekend, I had a chance to spend time with my amazing grandniece and niece. So, as a birthday gift, I not only gave her money, but our budgeting envelopes: Tumia Pesa (spend), Kuokoa Pesa (save), and Kuchangia Pesa (donate). All written in Swahili so the users can practice while budgeting their money.
I figure if Jenelle, my 3 year old grandniece (soon to be 4) can speak and sing in Mandarin Chinese, she can start budgeting her birthday money. 😆 Besides her mother, Shantae Chisolm, is a teacher and an amazing mom, so she can help her learn.
Watch out world, Jenelle and Kamari will be doing presentations together in the future.
Wow she’s gorgeous 🥰💫
