Fats Domino, aka Antoine Domino, Jr. is a black man that is one of the inventors of rock n roll!

Well, black people have a legendary history of

inventing things and spicing things up. Take Fats

Domino, for instance. He is one of the inventors of rock

n roll with this songs “Aint That a Shame ” I’m Walking, ”

THe Fat Man” and his version of “Blueberry Hill.”

Antoine bangs on an old upright piano.

In the past, he  took piano lessons and loved them

so much that he quits the 4th grade to play the piano

more. Domino, who has played some neighborhood gigs

with saxophonist Robert Hagans, plays piano at his

sister Philomena’s fish fry, and meeets BIlly Diamon, a

bandleader.

Mr. Domino begans his own band at the

Hideaway CLub on Desire Street, two blocks above club

Desire. This is where he had played with Billy

Diamond’s band and also intermissions for David

Bartholomew’s band. Bartholomew and disc jockey

Duke “Poppa Stoppa” THiele, signs Lew Chudd to his

label.

 

Domino headlines the biggest shows in rock n roll

history to date. The artists Domino headlines over are

Chuck Berry, Buddy Holly, the Everly Brothers, and

Jerry lee Lewis. Fats dominoes tour dates attract

so much attention because most venues had never had

white people and black people in the same audience.

Fats said the band would, at times, have to go 100

miles out of their way to find lodging that would take

African Americans. This and more, you will learn at this

The Secret of the Stones, a magic book involving black children who turn back and forth from human to stones!

 


Photo credit: Anton Vakulenko via Foter.com / CC BY-SA

I have wanted to write children’s stories for the longest.

I’ve always thought in order to write children’s I have to understand children.

I have to get inside the mind of a child. I know there are three things

important to a story: desire, obstacle, and resolution. These are

just three of the important things in a story. When I read “The Secret

of the Stones” I was truly amazed. Now let me give you a brief

synopsis. “The secret of the stones” is a story about a black

couple having no children.

They stumble upon two stones that

they take back home. These stones turned into a black orphan

boy and black orphan girl. They do all the cleaning and housework

while the black couple is out but disappear when they return.

They were spotted due to a neighbor. Yet, they had to get a

magic charm to make the children reappear briefly. Then,

they finally figure out how to take off the spell permanently,

so that the children never disappear. I love this happy story.

The whole concept of the story takes my mind to another place.

I wish this story was possible in real life. I describe the

story as mysterious. I had so much fun reading this.

The whole perspective is fresh and new. It impressed me

compared to the other children’s books I read but didn’t

get into. I rate this story a 10 out of 10 and it is number 1

out of my top 10.

The story is called “The Secret of the Stones” and it is

retold by Robert. D. San SOuci. The pictures

are by James Ransome. The publisher is Phyllis Fogelman

books and the state of publishing is New York.

The added benefits of melanin in the skin!

 

What is melanin? It is responsible for the darkness or

color in black skin. It was stated that Ghanaians/Afrikans must wear

sunscreen. But this is not so. Melanin is the great chemical that

makes Africans/Ghanaians more resistant to the sun. Every ethnicity has

melanin, but black people have more melanin. The

whiter the skin, the less melanin one has.  But Afrikans

have some serious levels of melanin. For example,

Afrikan/Ghanaian people have 12 layers of melanin. Indians,

Chinese, and Arabs have paler skin have  3 layers of melanin.

Europeans have one layer of melanin. Indian and Chinese

people burn in the sun because they only have 3 layers of melanin.

And don’t you see the pattern? The same races that the

brainwashed person glorifies is white and other non black people.

Yet, those OTHER races have a downfall. The pineal gland

secretes melanin from the sun’s rays and it is  melanin that

makes Africkan people negate the efffects of the sun rays and

therefore, do not need suncreen.

It’s the melanin in Afrikan skin that causes black people to

be naturally gifted in maths, physics, sports, science and other

elements. It causes Afrikan children to have intelligence that

supercedes Whites, Indians, Chinese people and Arabs.

Melanin causes serotonin to flow more effectively in

the waking stage to experience more spirituality.

The less melanin a person has, the more calcified

the pineal gland, and the less access the individual

has to the spiritual world. This explains why Afrikan people

value the creater. Melanin allows for viewing the color spectrum

alot better as well. So, melanin is powerful. Melanin is

potent. It is responsible for the wonderful and great.

Black owned Hospitals

stethoscope photo: Steth_on_Money steth_on_money.jpg

I mean here in Michigan I see alot of White doctors.
I’m like, where are the black doctors. There is
surely a need for them. I would love to see
more black doctors, both dark and yellow in color.
It don’t make sense for everything to be so white.
Yes, whites have their roles,but I would like to
see more black people as doctors. Now, let’s move
on to black hospitals. Where are the black hospitals?
I surely don’t know of any in michigan. Here are
some black hospitals for your viewing:

Freedmen’s Hospital was founded 1862 in Washington
by the Medical Division of the Freedmen’s Bureau
to give the medical care to slaves. This hospital
was located on the grounds belonging to
Howard University and was the only Federally
funded health care facility for blacks in the
nation.

It’s still around Howard University Hospital,
one of only 3 traditional black hospitals
left around. The Freedmen’s Bureau
stayed around for 4 years. During that time
a movement was started that paved the way
for some ninety new Negro Hospitals.

Lincoln Hospital was established by Dr. Aaron
MCDuffie Moore in 1901 when he convinced
Washington Duke that a hospital would be a
more useful thing than Duke’s idea of
building a monument on the Trinity Campus
to Honor negroes who had fought for the
confederacy.

Provident Hospital and Training School for Nurses,
the first black owned and operated hospital
in America, was established in 1891 by
Dr. Daniel Hale Williams. Provident provided
training for nursese and interns in Chicago.
Black patients were denied admission to
white hospitals. Therefore, black physicians
could not treat their patients.

In 1944, there were 125 black hospitals in America
catering to black patients. Of these 124 hospitals,
23 were fully approved by the American College
of Surgeons and three were provisionally approved.
these institutions were found in 23 states and the
District of Columbia.

Oh, and now that I think about it i saw a black
woman doctor in Deaborn Heights, Michigan. It was
refreshing and such a change.

Saint Agnes Hospital founded 1886 in Raleigh,
North Carolina on the grounds of St. Augustine’s College.
It had its share of handicaps. Despite that , it
was only well equipped hospital for blacks
between Washington And New Orleans. It served
North Carolina, adjacent Virginia and South Carolina.

Black people are these super talented bunch of people. We do things with style, grace, and  pizzazz. It always impresses me to hear black people doing well. We were born to do great things. Black people have a history of doing the most amazing things. If you know about the accomplishments of black people, you know that we are a blessing. So what brings me to the topic of black success? Well,the Nicholas Brothers come to mind.

The Nicholas Brothers are a African American dancing team. Fayard and Harold Nicholas careers spanned over 6 decades. They were recognized for their most memorable appearances in over 30 Hollywood musicals in 30s and 40s era. This includes Down Argentine Way, Sun Valley Serenade, and Stormy Weather.

Their artistry, choreographic brillance, and most unique style was a smooth blend of tap, jazz, ballet, and acrobatic moves that eeatntertained vaudeville, theatre, film, and television audiences all around the globe.

Their natural talents were honed early on in life. Their parents just so happened to be musicians that led the orchestra at the Standard Theatre in Philadelphia.

In 1932, when they first short film Pie, Pie Blackbird with Eubie Blake. Fayard and Harold opened at the Cotton Club, at the ages of 18 and 11.

They worked with such great and talented people like Cab Calloway, Duke Ellington, and Ethel Wathers.

Samuel Goldwyn spotted them at the fashionable club and invited them to do their first movie, Kid Millions. In 1940, they were contracted to 20th century fox where they completed 6 films. The Brothers traveled around Europe with Bob Hope, Eve Arden, Fanny Brice  and Josephine Baker.

They also starred in Lew Leslie’s Blackbirds of 1936. Fayard and Harold kept performing in  Broadway, Off Broadway, and theatre productions throughout the United States and Europe until the 1980s.

In 1981, they were honored by the  Academy Awards tv special. Fayard got a Tony Award for his choreography in the broadway show Black and Blue in 1989. Harold got the Dea Award or Dance Educators of America, Bay Area Critics Circle Award for Best Principal Performance in Stompin at the Savoy, and the Harbor Performing Arts Center Lifetime Achievement Award.OTher awards and honors include Black Film makers Hall of Fame, Elle Award, National Film Society, Apollo Theaters Hall of Fame, First Class Inductees, Ebony Lifetime Achievement Award, Kennedy Center Honors,The National Black Media Coalition Lifetime Achievement Award, Flo-bert Award, New York’s Tap Dance Committee, Gypsy Award,and the Professional Dancer’s Society Dance Magazine Award of 1995.

In 1994, the Brothers got their long overdue star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame.
