Coretta Scott King, Memes, and Harriet Tubman: Because you need the cutest girl you have
 seen wearing orange, on your timeline D

In school the only thing I got taught about African women, is that they were enslaved and took to the Americas. I always got told that the greatest women of the African diaspora were singers, or actors, sports stars or sex symbols. They never told me about the African queen Nefertiti who ruled alongside Akhenaten during the eighteenth dynasty. Nefertiti means, “The beautiful one has arrived.” They never told me that societies or civilisations where matriarchy was the dominant system, have had more peace than patriarchy. Or about Nyabinghi, the "hidden queen" who fought to free Africans from English slavery and rule. Also called Queen Muhmusa or Tahtahme, she inspired the Nyabinghi underpinnings of Rastafarianism. Or the Nupe women warriors called Isadshi-Koseshi who fought as fiercely as the men, opposing invasions of the Fulbe conquerers who raided the Nupe for cattles and slaves, especially women. Betty Shabazz, educator and civil rights advocate. Coretta Scott King was an American author, activist, and civil rights leader. Nanny of the Maroons, the obeah-woman from Ghana who went to Jamaica to be a high priestess and leader of her people, (never having been a slave). Nanny led the eastern Maroons based in Moreton, and forged an alliance with another group led by Cudjoe. Bell hooks, author, feminist and social activist. Or Angela Davis Black panther leader. Rosa parks the human rights activist. Brave Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, politician and South African rights activist, who fought against the evil Dutch police, when they thought it was okay to shoot Africans in the face, just because they were Black. These colonisers calling themselves Africans! Harriet Tubman freed slaves via the underground rail roads, Mary Seacole had her legacy copied by Florence nightingale. Assata shakur is still the only women on the FBIs most wanted list because she represents black power. I could go on all day as there are so many great role model women, why anybody is bothered about porn star types I'll never know. Please understand African women I love you and I value you. You are the most oppressed beings on the planet, yet you remain beautiful and I thank you. chakabars
