what's in a name?
Do you know the story of how your "title" came to be? Are you a Mrs.? Ms.? or Miss? Believe it or not, a notable, yet forgotten, Black Woman led the charge for you to have that choice. She may have been wiped from the history books, but she's wasn't erased from black histstory. Here is HERstory.
black history month theme for 2020
I have spent the past few days writing and curating to create content for Black History Month. As I was dealing with technical issues and figuring out what needed to be included, I watched the #ImpeachmentScamTrial and I realized something . . . I am pissed the fuck off!!
This year, the theme for Black History Month is “African Americans and the Vote” and, at this moment, I feel like a fraud as I am not even sure I want to vote. Yep, I said it. Out loud. So what?
Regardless of which side of the partisan table you sit, what we witnessed today was not just, nor was it justice. Not in any sense of the word and definitely not what my ancestors gave their lives for. I am pissed the fuck off!
The system is rigged. Against us. It always has been and the more we continue descending into the orange flames of hell, I am even more convinced that it matters not what I do. I mean really? Adding insult to injury is that this is the centennial anniversary of the 19th Amendment, where women finally received the right to vote. It is also the sesquicentennial anniversary of the 15th Amendment where Black men received the right to vote.
