America, Black History Month, and Books: Black Marvel Girl Following @Black MarvelGirl Let's celebrate Daisy Bates who walked black kids to white schools every day. History books never mention her name #Black History Month ETS LIKES 444 432 Repost from @blaxcellence_ Daisy Bates was born in Arkansas in 1914 and as a child she was outraged by racial discrimination. She didn't take it for granted. Later she discovered that her mother was killed by white rapists who were not judged for their crime. In 1940's Bates and her husband began to publish Arkansas State Press, the paper that advocated rights of black people. In 1952 Bates became the President of The NAACP in Arkansas. In 1957 nine Little Rock black kids were going to enter all-white school to get better education. 9 children were met with National Guards! Just imagine it — National Guards were set to resist 9 school kids. Daisy Bates tried to step in but she was arrested. Nevertheless Daisy's effort was mentioned by the White House and POTUS Dwight Eisenhower took care of desegregation of schools. After this incident Bates continued to work for black community helping people to live a better life. Thanks Daisy! She's a real role model who started civil rights activism when MLK was just a kid. blackexcellence blackperfection blackbeauty blackbusiness africanamerican blackcommunity melanin blackpride blackout america usa blackscience education diversity civilrights daisybates

Baller Alert, Black History Month, and Memes: Baller Alert's Black History Month Facts Baller Alert's Black History Month Facts- blogged by- @peachkyss ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Did you know that RubyBridges, now 62 and the first African American child to attend an all-white public school, was born the same year that the Supreme Court's Brown v. Board of Education decided to desegregate the schools? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When Ruby was in kindergarten, she was one of many African-American students in New Orleans who were chosen to take a test determining whether or not she could attend a white school. It is said the test was written to be especially difficult so that students would have a hard time passing. The idea was that if all the African-American children failed the test, New Orleans schools might be able to stay segregated for a while longer. Ruby lived a mere five blocks from an all-white school, but attended kindergarten several miles away, at an all-black segregated school. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In 1960, Ruby Bridges' parents were informed by officials from the NAACP that she was one of only six African-American students to pass the test. Ruby would be the only African-American student to attend the William Frantz School, near her home, and the first black child to attend an all-white elementary school in the South. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The image of this small black girl being escorted to school by four large white men (pictured above) inspired Norman Rockwell to create the painting "The Problem We All Must Live With," which graced the cover of Look magazine in 1964.

Baller Alert, Beautiful, and Black History Month: OOM Baller Alert's Black History Month Facts- blogged by @Peachkyss ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Did you know DonyaleLuna was the black woman to cover HarpersBazaar and VogueUK ? Donyale Luna was the first black model who really began to change things that enabled more diverse beauty paradigms to break through. She was discovered on a Detroit street in the same year as the Civil Rights Act, which prohibited discrimination based on race, colour, religion or national origin. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Donyale Luna was very tall and slender, and had the most incredible bone structure. At the age of 18 she was introduced to Nancy White in NYC. White was so impressed by the young beauty that she immediately had her sketched by an illustrator, and the result ran on the cover of the January 1965 edition of Harper's Bazaar , the first ever to feature a black model. That opened more doors for the model. She made history again on March 1966, when she became the first black model to feature on the cover of British Vogue in a stylish, Picasso-influenced composition shot. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Due to her drug addiction, her career was cut short by an accidental heroine overdose. Donyale Luna has opened many doors for all the great models today and will always be remembered for accomplishments. bablackhistory blackhistorymonth

Africa, Baller Alert, and Black History Month: Baller Alert's Black History Month Facts Baller Alert's Black History Month Facts- blogged by @peachkyss ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Did you know that DorothyCounts was the first black student to attend Harding High, a previously all-white school in Charlotte, North Carolina? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On September 4, 1957, Dorothy Counts was one of the four black students enrolled at various all-white schools in the district; She was at Harry Harding High School in Charlotte while three students were enrolled at other schools. At just 15 years old, Dorothy's first day of school was very hate-filled. On her first day, she was spat on, had rocks and trash thrown at her and was told to "go back to Africa." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Dorothy Counts stated, "I did not feel I was being protected in any way within the confines of the school because there were adults there and they did nothing. Teachers ignored me as if I was not even in the classroom. If I raised my hand, I wasn't acknowledged." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ After four just days, Dorothy left Harding High School. At the age of 74, she takes education very serious and is involved with the community trying to make a difference for our children. She doesn't want our children to experience the hate she had to experience. BABlackHistory
