The music was called ragtime, and in late 19th and early 20th century America, it soared in popularity, leading to a dance craze in the country. By the late 1910s, the genre was evolving into what we know today as jazz.

One of the most well-known musicians in both was James Reese Europe.

In the 1960s, there was a shift from the use of "Negro" to the use of "Black" as a group identifier.
In 1966 Stokely Carmichael 🇹🇹 shouted the phrase "Black Power" and Black quickly grew as a way American Negros identified themselves.

Racism requires being in a position of power in order to unjustly wield that power. Therefore, reverse racism, particularly on an institutional, systemic level, is not possible

Ask yourself, as a white person, say speaking with a black person, that if MLK, Malcolm X, sports, food, slavery and politics were out of bounds to talk about, could there still be a meaningful two-sided conversation? If the answer is yes, we refer to you as a ‘real one’.

When the miniseries "Roots" aired in 1977 it made TV History. Had a star studded cast and was viewed by over 140 million viewers. That was half the population of American at the time. It showed us the brutality of slavery and its generational affects. Do you remember watching?

Let’s take a moment to remember Kalief Browder - sent to Rikers Island as a teenager for allegedly stealing a backpack to await trial with no Bond.

DR Congo untapped deposits of raw minerals are estimated to be worth in excess of U.S. $100 trillion. That’s why the West has an interest in Congo.

Nobody is protesting to cease fire the ethnic cleanse murders in the Congo.
