If you have a facebook page… take a look at my Black History Month posts. Enlightening, Educational & Entertaining.
Later I will more than likely recap the whole month and make it a blog post for each of the pictures I have created.
You can also see some of them on my Instagram as well.
I mean there is nothing wrong with going out of your way and friggin’ learning something. I guarantee you that a lot of the info I have gather hasn’t be divulged in history or social studies classes. I mean what do you have to lose?
We can look at bullshit online but rarely will take the chance to learn something. There is more to social media than club life, strippers, parties, sex, music, movies and fast money. So SWYD, Turn down for once and go feed something other than your stomach & libido…
This year’s focus is slavery. Despite what history tells us, African slaves did not go docile into bondage. History would allow us to think that most of us turned to the Christian religion, insurrection to the slave masters, running away or even suicide… But take a closer look. A lot of ancestors didn’t go out without a fight or revolt. In fact for most of the 17th-18th centuries, slavery was apparent throughout all of the “New World” colonies… Eventually…laws would give create dramatic changes… And well history… eventually paints a different picture for us in school.
