The last few days of this BHM will look at more recent black history makers. Join us on our journey through '31 days of Black History'. Like, share and tag someone. Share the knowledge. Enjoy! πŸ˜€ Day 26 - Kwame Nkrumah was born on September 21, 1909, at Nkroful in what was then the British-ruled Gold Coast, the son of a goldsmith. Trained as a teacher, he went to the United States in 1935 for advanced studies and continued his schooling in England, where he helped organize the Pan-African Congress in 1945. He returned to Ghana in 1947 and became general secretary of the newly founded United Gold Coast Convention but split from it in 1949 to form the Convention People's party (CPP). Nkrumah was the motivating force behind the movement for independence of Ghana, then British West Africa, and its first president when it became independent in 1957. His numerous writings address Africa's political destiny. #blackbeauty #blackhistory #bhm #blackhistorymonth #tagsomeone #knowledgeispower #didyouknow #nowyouknow #myblackhistory #ghana #ghanaian

#blackhistorymonth Toussaint L'Ouverture #haiti #revolution #slavery #caribbean The Atlantic Slave Trade lasted from around the 16th century through to the 19th century. Although much emphasis is placed on the efforts people like Rosa Parks, Olaudah Equiano and Marcus Garvey who helped to end not only slavery, but bring equality, there were people and events which preceded some of the most courageous people celebrated in Black History. There were the Maroons in Jamaica, led by Nanny, who was born of the Ashanti tribe in Ghana, who helped to free slaves and took control over much of the hilly inlands of Jamaica. Marcos Xiorro was an African slave who led a revolution in 1821 in Puerto Rico. There were also a few different slave revolutions in Mâle, Brazil in 1835. Arguably the most successful slave rebellion in the Americas was led by a man named Toussaint L’Ouverture. L’Ouverture was born in the country then called Saint-Domingue (now Haiti) and was freed from slavery at the age of 33 in 1776. He continued to work but was able to acquire property and some wealth, due to his increased responsibilities as a driver and work force organiser. When the revolution began in 1791, he was placed in charge of a small band of rebels and negotiated with the French Governor to stop the use of whips, and an extra non working day amongst other things. These demands were not met, and the rebels started to increase their alliance with the Spanish. After many years of fighting and treaties with Britain and the US in 1798, L’Ouverture was captured, sent to France and died in 1803, a year before Haiti declared independence and abolished slavery. These achievements are not to be taken lightly. Haiti was the wealthiest of all the Caribbean colonies in 1789, producing 60% of the world’s coffee and 40% of the worlds sugar. Haiti gained its independence almost 160 years before other Caribbean islands like Guyana and Barbados. In other words, this was not a colony which had no significance. How then has Haiti, along with other Caribbean islands with vast resources, become so poor in the 200 years since independence?

#blackhistorymonth Saartjie Baartman #venushottentot #london #zoo #southafrica Saartjie Baartman (c.1789 – 29 Dec 1815) Taken from her homeland of the Gamtoos Valley in South Africa, Saartjie was taken to London and spent four years being exhibited in around Britian. She was exhibited for people to look at and stare, like the sub-human they all thought she was. The recent Human oo attraction at The Barbican would have included an actress displayed like the picture above; a tribute to a woman who, like many others in the 19th century, were degraded in similar fashion. Others like Ota Benga (a pygmy from the Congo) and Abraham Ulrikab (an Inuk from Labrador) were taken from their homeland and displayed to members of the paying public. She was displayed because of her ‘unusual’ bodily features. Her large buttocks and elongated labia were of great curiositiy to scientists, as well as her jaw structure, the shape of her nose and chin. After her death, her cadaver was dissected and the results published by Henri Marie Ducrotay de Blainville who likened certain features to that of an orangutan. The measuring and comparisons of her face no doubt contributed to Ernst Rüdin’s justification for the racial policies of Nazi Germany and have their root in Darwin’s Theory of Evolution which was turned into eugenics by his half cousin Sir Francis Galton. Despite the atrocities of WWII, the civil rights movement and even Womens Suffrage, Saartjie’s genitals, brain and skeleton were on display in Paris’ Musée de l’Homme up until 1974. A cast of her body was removed in 1976. Given this sad story, the way she was exhibited and is rumoured to have prostituted herself while living in Paris in poverty, it’s no wonder that certain singers and entertainers have come under criticism for how they portray themselves. Are they just an extention of Saartjie? Or are they merely expressing their sexuality in today’s liberal society?

HOLLYWOOD BLACKLIST Danny Glover’s ‘Toussaint’ Biopic... The true story of a former slave-turned-Commander of a military revolt, who overthrew Napoleon Bonaparte’s French army, is one that’s exposed Hollywood’s secret parameters in picture-making: Selecting storylines featuring ‘WHITE HEROES’ only. Danny Glover is no stranger to the evident racially-charged protocol, proven to be followed by movie producers. The actor’s directorial plan to bring TOUSSAINT L’OUVERTURE’S legacy to the silver screen is said be what forced the lid off Tinseltown’s illusion of liberalism. Nicknamed ‘THE BLACK NAPOLEON,’ his legacy encompasses a fearless fight for freedom. GENERAL TOUSSAINT L’OUVERTURE was leader of the Haitian Revolution, a Black hero, not only responsible for spearheading a plot that forced the end of slavery within the French colony of Haiti, he also rocked the world stage for its inhumane, colonial practices. If it were not for Toussaint L’Ouverture, history’s first successful slave revolt may have never happened. Most would believe movie executives would jump at the chance to back the biopic of a man who declared emancipation for slaves 61-years before President Lincoln – referred to as “The Great Emancipator” made the passage of the 13th Amendment. Danny Glover once did until he learned the exact reason why that’s proven to NOT the case. “PRODUCERS SAID, ‘IT'S A NICE PROJECT, a great project but where are the WHITE HEROES?’ Glover told the press during a stay in Paris for a film seminar. “I couldn’t get the money here, I couldn’t get the money in Britain. I went to everybody. You wouldn’t believe the number of producers based in Europe, and in the States, that I went to.” After nearly a decade-long pursuit of production funding for ‘Toussaint’, Glover landed a movie budget from what some may see as one of the most unlikely places: Venezuela. Which fell through..

missgoodie1shoe : And this is why I study film. It's true and it's not a secret. This is what I have been studying in my American Cinema class. It is intentional to keep everyone "in their place."
sinistar22x2 : @missgoodie1shoe I remember when Ali was made. They blocked Spike Lee from making it as they thought he would make the movie too angry. Like what they are doing with that Ridley Scott movie gods and Kings. Not one black starring role

Had a lovely day at Kenwood House. Amazing to think this is the very house Dido Elizabeth Belle lived, daughter of a black slave woman and Royal Navy Captain John Lindsay. She was placed in the care of Lord Mansfield (the most important judge of the land, Lindsay's uncle) and some say was the very reason for his views on race and legal rulings that paved the way for the abolition of slavery. #love #history #blackhistorymonth

After being a slave for so long. Is freedom ever possible? Hi all, I hope that this email finds you all well. I'm just writing to invite you to our forthcoming play, "Bangles". “Bangles” tells the powerful story of a young British born Nigerian filmmaker and poet, Theresa who is still haunted by memories of her abusive, now deceased father. Despite her best efforts, she is unable to convey the depth of her pain to her stern mother, Gbemi and her cocky, confident brother, David. However, as the second anniversary of her father’s death approaches and familial tensions arise, Theresa and her family are compelled to confront a devastating past in a way which changes their lives forever. Combining powerful live theatre with searing and unusual film footage, "Bangles" is an innovative multimedia production exploring the timeless themes of reality and perception, bitterness and healing. The play is on Saturday 15th November 2014, at Platform Theatre, 260 Hornsey Road, London, N7 7QT. There are two performances on the day - one at 3:00 pm and one at 7:30 pm. Please book whichever one suits you best by clicking on the corresponding link below: 3:00 PM SHOWING: 7:30 PM SHOWING: Feel free to invite others too but hurry since tickets won't be around for too long! See the poster attached for more details. Take care and hope to see you there!
