Quote of the day: Malcolm X

Until the image of the black man in the mind of the black man has been changed, there will always be delinquency, parental and juvenile. The idea is not to change the attitude of the white man to the black man but to change the attitude of the black man to himself. – Malcolm X

Marcus Garvey

APUSHReview

Marcus Garvey

Marcus Garvey

Marcus Garvey was an influential African American leader from the early 20th century, especially the 1920s. Garvey was a founder of the Universal Negro Improvement Association (UNIA.) The organization called for black separatism and black pride, rather than integration. To meet these ends, Garvey called for African Americans to settle in Africa. Why should APUSH students know Marcus Garvey? His ideas helped influence the Nation of Islam in the 1960s. Additionally, his “Back to Africa” movement frequently appears on the APUSH exam.

God, Did We Just Kill a Child? (George Stinney)

L

askakamo

I want to write about this child, who was the youngest ever executed in America. Well, I don’t have time to really write anything, so I’m going to do a cheap cut-and-paste job.

You’ll get my input on part II. In the meantime, #knowyourhistory

Thanks for visiting my blog.

(The following taken from Wikipedia)

George Junius Stinney Jr. (October 21, 1929 – June 16, 1944) was, at age 14, the youngest person executed in the United States in the 20th century.[1]

Stinney, of Alcolu, South Carolina, was convicted of murdering two young girls after police said he confessed to the murders. But the question of Stinney’s guilt, the validity of his alleged confession and the judicial process leading to his execution has been criticized as “suspicious at best and a miscarriage of justice at worst”,[2] and as an example of the many injustices African-Americans suffered in courtrooms in…

Hip Hop & Islam: The Sacred Nexus

Sheikh Lupe Fiasco calling the Ummah to prayer

by BubbleMami

Hip-hop & Islam: two righteous forces, long-misunderstood in the United States. However, as hip-hop has slowly staked its claim as the number one musical genre in the country, Islam has only suffered further misunderstanding and marginalization. The saying II Tru comes to mind, but in this case, ‘mo publicity, less listening’ seems more appropriate (that’s original- don’t steal it!)

But why fight for the top spot as the most hated in America? Hip-hop and Islam are — at the root — focused on preaching love.

As a rap-loving American Muslim — and keeping in mind that Islam translates to ‘peace’ — I felt an urge to use Rap Genius to explore the hip-hop / Islam nexus. And what better time than the sacred month of Ramadan?

Farrakhan: Whites Promote Birth Control For Black Women Because They Fear Being Minorities

Louis Farrakhan black women birth control

The controversial leader of the Nation of Islam was called on to speak about vision, education, self-esteem and fatherhood. He focused at many points on women, and on the ways men are distracted in society because of them. He talked on March 2 about his belief that a woman should be in the home, raising children with strong moral values who will contribute to society.
