๐ŸŒŸ On this day 54 years ago, brother Malcolm X was assassinated. May our shining king Rest In Peace. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ “I’m for truth, no matter who tells it. I’m for justice, no matter who it’s for or against.” ~ Malcolm X, murdered on this day February 21, 1965 “No, Iโ€™m not an American. Iโ€™m one of the 22 million black people who are the victims of Americanism. One of the 22 million black people who are the victims of democracy, nothing but disguised hypocrisy. […]I donโ€™t see any American dream, I see an American nightmare.” #MalcolmX โœŒ๐Ÿพ

Light up the truth today reggae family! ๐Ÿ”ฅ ๐Ÿ•ฏ ๐Ÿ’ก Ida B. Wells. Educator, Journalist, Author and Activist. Ida Wells was born a slave in Holy Springs, Missisippi, USA in 1862. He parents were also born as slaves. What made Ida stand out in her time was that the brutalities and the lynchings that were taking place on African Americans during the late 1800s and early 1900s she spoke about strongly and forcefully. She had also written about it in newspapers geared for the black community such as Free Speech and Headlight. Ida was also very outspoken about issues relating to segregation. This was an era that blacks were not allowed to mix with whites and there were also many no go areas that blacks weren’t allowed in. Their was lots of attacks on blacks by whites in #Memphis, and Ida urged them to leave there with immediate effect. She was the mouthpiece for blacks at that time and she fought their cause. It was in 1896 that she founded the National Association Of Colored Woman’s Clubs, and she co-founded the National Afro-American Council. Ida’s father, a carpenter, was a stance supporter of black rights but never ran for office. This was where Ida got her political vision and head from, as she would become an early pioneer of the #CivilRights Movement. It was from there that African Americans began to voice their issues around #racism and the many prejudices that they had to live with. It was Ida’s idea that blacks got lynched by whites due to them trying to compete with them rather than criminal acts commited by blacks – as whites confessed. Among her books, and there are several, her unfinished autobiography – Crusade For Justice: Autobiography Of Ida B. Wells, #SouthernHorrors And Other Writings, and On Lynchings. Ida was also active in various woman rights organizations and movements as well as woman sufferage, where she spoke up and faught for women who were discriminated against and abused. #TuesdayTruth .

Meet a great warrior king of the past. “Buck Colbert Franklin”…..Thank you..๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿ–ค

#BuckColbertFranklin is known as the #lawyer who won the court victory for black residents after the 1921 Tulsa Race Riots. Franklin was born in 1879 and was named after his grandfather, who had been an enslaved #African of a #Chickasaw family in Oklahoma. After completing his studies, he opened up his law practice in the predominately white town of Ardmore, Oklahoma. However, the racial tension at the time was so strong, he decided to relocate to Tulsa and focus his practice on helping people in the black communities. The Greenwood District of Tulsa was one of the wealthiest enclaves of blacks in the south, known as #BlackWallStreet. After the 1921 #TulsaRaceRiots that destroyed the region, he led the legal fight against the City Council of Tulsa, who passed an ordinance keeping Tulsas blacks from rebuilding the neighborhoods that has been affected. Instead, the city had plans to rezone the area and make it into a commercial area. Franklin filed suit against the city of #Tulsa before #Oklahoma Supreme Court. His efforts were successful, due to his actions, black people were able to begin rebuilding their community. Franklin penned his experience in an autobiography. However, he died in 1960 before the book was published. John Hope Franklin, one of his four children, went on to become a prominent #historian and #civilrights advocate. John Hope Franklin and his son would later finish Buck Franklinโ€™s #autobiography โ€œMy Life and An Era: The Autobiography of Buck Colbert Franklin.
