Marcus Garvey – Black Moses – Extra History

What Is It?

The YouTube video Marcus Garvey – Black Moses – Extra History by the YouTube channel Extra Credits.

Marcus Garvey is an interesting and divisive figure in civil rights history. Influenced by the writings of Booker T Washington, he pushed back against the philosophy of the NAACP and W.E.B. Du Bois. On the one hand, he was a passionate and fierce leader who unified the community and worked to fight injustice. On the other hand, he was a separatist to the core, a philosophy that led to him reaching out to the Ku Klux Klan. And that’s never the best sentence to hear. But love him or hate him, there is no denying that he was extremely influential on figures like Malcolm X.

What is it?

The YouTube video Living While Black In Japan | All Things Considered | NPR by the YouTube channel NPR, and here is the description for this video:

In the wake of the 2020 killing of George Floyd, African-Americans and others mounted ongoing street protests.

But African-Americans living abroad felt the anguish as profoundly as their families and friends back “home.”

Some have chosen to live in Japan, one of the most homogeneous nations in the world. Despite being in a smaller minority in Japan than in their home country, they express feelings of safety and freedom.

Yet, racism in the U.S. still plays a role in their lives. In this short film, several African-Americans living in Japan discuss how their encounters with police and racism in the U.S. played into their decision to live abroad and how leaving the U.S. changed their perceptions of who they are and their connection to the country of their birth.

Terrible Louisiana School History | A Traitor

Dream 1

All that I can remember of this dream is that part of the dream involved some terrible history lesson(s) / stories being told that I had not heard of before, that were mostly focused on some terrible things that happened to some black / African American children in the past, with a focus on some terrible things that happened to them at one or more schools in Louisiana.

In the dream I went to the school or one of the schools in Louisiana to see it for myself, I can not remember the name or which parish or city, maybe the name of the parish started with a T, but I can not remember.

Oberlin Louisiana Cemetery Declined To Bury Black Deputy Sheriff Due To ‘Whites Only’ Policy

Black deputy denied burial in Louisiana cemetery due to his race

This is unacceptable and sad, I am glad that cemetery has changed its policy, but racist et cetera things like this in the law & deeds & rules et cetera need to be removed everywhere now.

Here is a news article about this by KPLC called Louisiana Family Denied Burial Plot In ‘Whites Only’ Cemetery:
