Christmas songs by him. His wonderful voice filled my childhood home all the way through the holidays, a sweet part of my life:





Yes, it's in German, but it's easy enough to understand.

I am part German and my Papa sang that song (yes in German) to me when I was a child. Such fond memories. I loved my Papa.
Much to my mothers chagrin he also use to teach me cuss words too. He was a hoot!

Thanks

What a fascinating life. An American woman born in Missouri, fighting Nazi's in the French Underground in WW2, her role in the American civil rights movement along side Martin Luther King, and adopting 12 multi-ethnic children her "Rainbow Tribe".

After the war Baker became the first American woman to receive three of the highest honors of the French state, the Croix de Guerre, the Rosette de la Resistance, and being made a Chevalier of the Legion d’honneur; all given to her by Charles de Gaulle personally.


In the 1950s Josephine Baker became very active in the American civil rights movement. Not only did she protest racism by adopting 12 multi-ethnic orphans as her legal children, she also forced clubs, theaters, opera houses and other cultural venues to open themselves to an integrated audience by either refusing to perform there or by simply buying the establishment and changing the audience guidelines. She also started working closely with the NAACP using her wealth and fame to bring attention and fight for their cause. This lead to her being the only official female speaker at the 1963 March on Washington. She spoke at the side of Martin Luther King Jr. wearing her Free French army uniform and her medals. Baker used this opportunity to introduce the “Negro Women for Civil Rights” and brought Rosa Parks and Daisy Bates to the stage to give brief speeches.

114. non sequitur

that has nothing to do with the fact that he was released from his contract with Warner in 1996, which was the whole reason why he stopped using his given name and went with the symbol, which is what I was talking about. Try to keep up.

17. Black is definitely beautiful!

As a white guy, I have to express my mystification toward white supremacists. I love women, so I can't understand a mindset that essentially restricts one's selection of available women to one ethnic group only.

I'm a little tipsy, so I'm in "I love everybody" mode...

39. Thanks Aristus

That's what I like about Black and White Photograpy. The contrast is so beautiful. So sharp and so clear.


Is white the absence of color and black the combination of all colors?

I see the night sky and it's black. I take every crayon I have and I mark a paper with all of them in the same spot and it turns out black. Does that mean that black is all colors combined. Then why does space appear black? Because of the absence of light and things to reflect it?


(With a BA in Fine Art...I knew white was the absence of color and black was the combination. However confirmed it on the net and found the above pargraph...it speaks volumes)


It is achingly beautiful. Like a mirror into your very soul.

That little black boy or Latino girl or Asian girl or native American boy or poor white girl may have the potential to invent a cure for cancer or to create a renewable form of energy that is as efficient or more efficient than fossil fuels, but if they are not afforded the opportunities that others get, we as a nation, as a human society may miss out because our greatest asset, all of our human resources, were not nurtured. Just think of all that we've missed over the centuries because so many were denied.

30. Bessie Coleman

Bessie Coleman, America's first black woman licensed pilot.



On June 15, 1921, Coleman became not only the first African-American woman to earn an international aviation license from the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale, but the first African American woman in the world to earn an aviation pilot's license. She had to travel to France to learn to fly because no one would teach her here.

41. Mr NLRB the Honorable Howard Jenkins Jr


The finest man ever appointed to the NLRB. The deciding vote on the board to reinstate me when I was fired for union organizing in 1980.


Howard and President Ford


Howard and President Johnson

Jenkins was appointed to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) in 1963 by the Democratic President Kennedy despite his life-long affiliation with the Republican party. His appointment coincided with the landmark civil rights legislation proposed by President John F. Kennedy, which was supported by civil rights organizations and their historic march on Washington, D.C., in 1963. The day after the historic march, Howard Jenkins, Jr., was sworn in as a member of the NLRB.

Republicans were much different in the early 60's. He resigned (retired) when Raygun was in office.

On August 27, 1983 Howard Jenkins, Jr. tenure on the NLRB came to a close. Howard dedicated twenty years of his life as a member on the NLRB. His record during these years illustrates that he believed that labor rights should be equally protected for all by the National Labor Relations Board. In Howard Jenkins, Jr. letter of resignation to President of the United States, Ronald Reagan, he stated that: " In my four terms spanning twenty years on the Board, under appointments by both Republican and Democratic Presidents, it has been a pleasure to have helped formulate many important principles and decisions which have, with court approval, become a major part of our national labor policy. Among these, and one in which I took the lead, is the now well-accepted principle that race and sex discrimination are unfair labor practices prohibited by the National Labor Relations Act"

45. Tuskegee Airmen!


image hosting

In 1942 First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt visited Tuskegee’s Civilian Pilot Training Program, took a historic flight with Chief Flight Instructor Charles Anderson, and used her influence toward advancing military flight training in Tuskegee.




The Tuskegee Airman were an elite group of African-American pilots in the 1940s. They were pioneers in equality and integration of the Armed Forces. The term "Tuskegee Airmen" refers to all who were involved in the Army Air Corps program to train African Americans to fly and maintain combat aircraft. The Tuskegee Airmen included pilots, navigators, bombardiers, maintenance and support staff, instructors, and all the personnel who kept the planes in the air.

The primary flight training for these servicemembers took place at the Division of Aeronautics of


Tuskegee Institute. Air Corps officials built a separate facility at Tuskegee Army Air Field to train the pilots. The Tuskegee Airmen not only battled enemies during wartime but also fought against racism and segregation thus proving they were just as good as any other pilot. Racism was common during World War II and many people did not want blacks to become pilots. They trained in overcrowded classrooms and airstrips, and suffered from the racist attitude of some military officials. The Tuskegee Airman suffered many hardships, but they proved themselves to be world class pilots.

Even though the Tuskegee Airmen proved their worth as military pilots they were still forced to operate in segregated units and did not fight alongside their white countrymen.

The men earned the nickname "Red Tail Angels" since the bombers considered their escorts "angels" and the red paint on the propeller and tail of their planes.

48. A. Philip Randolph: Pullman Porters: from Servitude to Civil Rights




A. Philip Randolph at the Lincoln Memorial

http://www.wttw.com/main.taf?p=1,7,1,1,41

In 1925, the porters formed a union called The Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters. This marked the beginning of a twelve-year struggle for dignity, better working conditions, and fair pay. (Its leaders were charismatic black activist A. Philip Randolph and former porter Milton Webster, head of the Chicago union local.) Their eventual triumph marked the first time in American history that a black union forced a powerful corporation to the negotiating table. It was a significant step forward for black equality.

The union members learned how to organize and negotiate. They discovered that even in a time of great prejudice in America, blacks could effect change if they stood together and persevered. They would later apply these techniques to the civil rights movement.

120. John Brown


I remember learning about including John Brown in Black history in the 60's. It was an episode of Room 222.



John Brown was a man of action -- a man who would not be deterred from his mission of abolishing slavery. On October 16, 1859, he led 21 men on a raid of the federal arsenal at Harpers Ferry, Virginia. His plan to arm slaves with the weapons he and his men seized from the arsenal was thwarted, however, by local farmers, militiamen, and Marines led by Robert E. Lee. Within 36 hours of the attack, most of Brown's men had been killed or captured.

John Brown was born into a deeply religious family in Torrington, Connecticut, in 1800. Led by a father who was vehemently opposed to slavery, the family moved to northern Ohio when John was five, to a district that would become known for its antislavery views.

On April 3, 1968, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. traveled to Memphis to support AFSCME sanitation workers. That evening, he delivered his famous “I’ve Been to the Mountaintop” speech to a packed room of supporters. The next day, he was assassinated.

Read the full “Mountaintop” speech: http://www.afscme.org/union/history/mlk/ive-been-to-the-mountaintop-by-dr-martin-luther-king-jr



Uploaded by afscme on May 4, 2011

The 1,300 sanitation workers who participated in the historic 1968 strike in Memphis, Tennessee -- members of AFSCME Local 1733 -- were enshrined into the U.S. Department of Labor's "Labor Hall of Fame" on April 29, 2011. Eight of the original strikers attended the induction ceremony before a full house in the Grand Hall of the Department of Labor in Washington, D.C. and connected their struggle to modern-day battles that continue to be waged against today's labor movement.

Inductees included Local 1733 members Ben Jones, Baxter Leach, Herbert Parson, Cleophus Smith, Alvin Turner, Ozell Ueal, Russell Walton, and Joe Warren.

140. Colin Powell

I am proud to have served my nation under General Colin Powell, earlier in his career in Europe.

Met him and served while he was V Corp Commander in Europe in 1986.

I consider him an inspirational great leader.

146. Ernie Davis




He was the first African American man to win the Heisman Trophy, and to be picked 1st overall in the NFL draft. His career was cut short when he was diagnosed with cancer in 1962.
