The US Capitol, Mount Vernon, Wall Street and more Buildings were built by Black Slaves!

Severe Storms at the US Capitol

Black History is everyday. Therefore it should be celebrated everyday.

Black people have alot of accomplishments and inventions. It’s more

than just sports and music, black people once dominated more areas

of life than you notice today. We know the story of black people being

slaves, but ofcourse that is not the full story. Slaves did more than

work in the cotton fields. They invented and re invented and

invented some more. Boo-yah!

Slave labor went into the building of the capitol. The area where

the legislative center of the US sits formerly known as Jenkins Hill. This

hill was a heavily forested area that needed extensive landscaping, as

well as trench digging for the foundation from slaves. This was all before

George Washington laid the cornerstone in 1793. According to Fred Beuttler,

a historian for the House of Representatives, one of the buildings most iconic

symbols, the brass Statue of Freedom, was in part, done through the

diligence of Philip Reid, a former slave. Some of the sandstone in the old east

front of the building has the names of slave laborers who had

cut the stone.

The country’s financial center was named the same name that

a wall  was named. That wall was built in 1653 to protect settlers from Indian raids.

Freed and enslaved Africans made up a significant part of the labor pool

that created that well, just like the other infrastructure and buildings

in what is currently Lower Manhattan, including Trinity CHurch. There

was a slave market at Wall and Water streets, and slave ships would

leave at South Street Seaport. According to the church’s archivist,

the parish, which was founded in 1696,used slave labor at several points

during its early history. Many early members contribute slaves to build

the initial church.

Mount Vernon,  the home and plantation of the nation’s first

president survived on the labor of hundreds of slaves owned by

George and Martha Washington. These slaves specialized in various

trades, including woodworking and blacksmithing. Most of the structures

spread across the grounds of Mount Vernon, includiings a 16 sided barn

for grain processing and storage, were built by slave laborers and carpenters

often overseen by Thomas Green.

You will find those 3 places listed above and more

places black slaves built on the website.  Two thumbs of for black people doing

your thang with pride.  Your quote for the day is “I work hard now, so I can have it

easier later on” (by me) Oh, and black people still excel outside and

inside of sports and music today just like in the past. Wake up!

African American Jemiah Battle Inventor creates Heart Detection Bracelet to Prevent Heart Attacks!

 

What is one of the top thing we humans must look out for? Okay,

take a guess. If you guesses health, you would be right.

Based on AMerican Heart Association’s findings, heart disease

is the Number 1 killer for all Americans and stroke is also the main

cause of death. The statistics for African Americans are more serious with

44% OF MEN AND 48% OF WOMEN having some form of

cardiovascular disease. Jemiah Battle states” Something had to be done. I have

suffered many losses with family members and friends, decided it was

time to get get busy and invent the life E Bracelet, which saves lives in

real time and promote self care.

Battle, author, transformational emotional life coach and CEO

of VK3 Innovations, has been working diligently to change the world with

his emotional fitness workshops.  Battle says “MY company specializes in

bringing  life changing products and innovations of the market in a bid

to improve, safeguard, and enhance one’s health and mental well being through

self care. The goal is to create awareness, through information, about heart

disease in the black community: and how minorities, especially women, are at

high risk or stroke or heart attack through education. I think the Life E- Bracelet

can help save many lives, brings mindfulness to stress, emotional health, and

wellness.”

He most recently received a patent for the first of its kind. The Life E

Bracelet,the innovative bracelet provides a wristband for monitoring

vital signs to help alert users to the risk of an oncoming heart attack. This

bracelet/wristbandincludes a digital display monitor and various sensors to

observe your blood pressure, pulse, stress, and other heart related readings.

One of the main features of this design is the ability for the band to

light up in various colors to show different levels of heart rate/blood pressure.

The band  illuminates in red, yellow, green, and blue in order to notify its

user of what to do. The band is able to  let the user know when their blood

pressure is getting to a dangerous level and/ or they are at risk of a heart

attack. The device also has a wireless notification system to alert family or

emergency contacts of a very special situation. The wristband is amazing

because it’s adjustable, in size, to help different individuals.

Get involved please. Your donations support cost of revenue,

research and development, sales and marketing, general and administrative,

etc. I shortened this article, but this article is worth reading at its original

site. I love the features of this invention. It is very much needed today.

It is convenient. It will save a life. So go ahead and spread the word.

Go ahead and use it.

How Black men and white men worked on the highway of ALaska together!

photo credit: davidyuweb Fleet Week San Francisco 2016 via photopin (license)

Ofcourse Some white people are quick to dismiss the black man’s talents.

Now if you know black history, you know us black people do it and we

do it better. We do it big. We are the meal, the snack, and the cake with

icing and sprinkles and a nice drink to go with it. We just outdo ourselves.

More black people should help other black people. It’s really a competition

with white people and black people. It’s not black people and black people.

That’s just how it’s set up.

Moving onto the story.  The little people thought that African American

engineers were not skilled and industrious as White people. This is so not true. It was an

experiment done with white men and black men to work on the same

project. They did not want African Americans to work in cold climates.

Black men and white men worked on the same highway. Yet,

it was still segregated. The African American engineers were not

allowed to have bulldozers and other machinery. The 95th Engineer

Regiment, who was the final African American unit transferred to

the highway, had more experience operating equipment. Yet,

the all white people of the 35 regiment was given the machinery.

African Americans were given hand tools. You see how backwards

some people are? But the brilliant and bold African Americans

are so magnificent they can get something done with pure labor.

On October 25, 1953, an African American soldier and

a white bulldozer driving soldier shook hands. This was the

final link of the Alaska Highway! They were photographed

as equals coming together to beat the Axis Powers.

It was now 1942, when the highway was completed.

The engineers who had labored so hard and were transferred to

other arenas in the war, including the South Pacific

and Europe. There, thirty men died during the construction

of the highway. Memorials for the veterans are spread

throughout the highway, including the Black Veterans

Memorial Bridge, which came into effect in 1993.

Thus, it was truly hard work to work on this project.

This is just one instance of black people and white people

working together.

Martin Davis, a young African American designer for General Motors designs cars!

 

 

chrysler I’ve seen so many cars. I see my top three favorite cars most

often. So I decided to look up which cars are designed by

African Americans. I knew this would be a fun topic.

So listen, his is what  I found. Martin Davis, a

black man has led the exterior lighting and design studio

for the automaker’s North American division, the team responsible

for the exterior lighting for every brand under the General Motors

umbrella.

Davis knew he had a love for design and innovation since elementary

school. HE did not like the HOT wheels and lego sets. They just

did not keep his attention. He also did not like the toys in

toy stores, so this creative black youth made his own.

The Detroit area native collected empty cardboard boxes used to transport

fruits and veggies from the grocery store. He brung them home and just

started cutting. He molded shapes with glue, tape and constructions

paper.. Their was a small closet in the entryway of his parents house,

with enough room for a chair and his creations, interior designs for

a car that includes a dashboard and center console. He invited

his friends to test drive the car and come out with a new model

once a month.

His father thought kids playing with cardboard in their

closet was a safety concern. Thus he shut the operation down.

He still sent his sketches into Ford and was just in middle school.

He waited and thought nothing would come of his work. A

Ford employee sent his work to the design department. He

got a follow up letter from the design department with some

career advice and a list of schools. HE really really wanted

to attend the College for Creative Studies in detroit , michigan

out of the choices he had been sent.

He got the design managers attention and they took his

sketches and plastered them on a 20 foot wall in his studio

at GM. The auto company allowed him the opportunity to

travel to Birmingham, England to work at an advanced

design studio that mainly focused on Cadillacs.

Davis and his team were responsible for the exterior lighting

responsibilities for three well known programs- the GMC Acadia, Chevy

Traverse, and the Buick Enclave. And as you can see,

this is a process. He worked and worked to master

his craft. You must do one step before you can make

the other . There’s more to the story of the brilliant black man

in the car designing, here:

Dr Isaac Horton, a Black man has 25 years of background as Chairman and Ceo of LIghht INC, who disinfects water

Prism

Dr Isaac Horton is doing something better than your average male.
What’s that you ask? Well, He is a black man with 25 years of background
in technology, patents, international business and finance. Due to his adroit
nature as a pharmaceutical drug designer for Dupont Company, he has a
reputation as a scientist and entrepreneur. Hear
that again people! He works for legal drugs, that are scientifically designed to help
people, not the raw drugs that keep people intoxicated.
This man takes the title of Chairman and Ceo of Remote Light INc,a
company who’s purpose is to use light to disinfect air, water, and other liquids.
His company has distributed over 140 patents, which is really saying something about
how hard they are doing with this. And where can you see Remote Light’s technology? If you go to Disney’s theme parks or even the New York Stock Exchange, Tiffany and Company,
Two NFL half time shows and many more places, you will be in a daze or
in awe rather because that’s the business he so professionally assists.
The Products there, how do they rate? The products are so
hot that they get “Product of the Year “ Award, Application of the Year
Award”, and “Innovator of the Year Award”. This is the equivalent to being
on a winning team that so many people desire to work with. I mean, who
wants to be on a losing team? We are on the team for the betterment of self
and others.
Horton has also added something else to his balancing beam of
achievements. He is the founder and Managing Partner of Scientific
Production Ventures. Scientific Production venues recently built a
Multi-billlion dollar pipeline of utility scale solar power in investment
Opportunities in brownfield, whose role it is so serve as a new business
for Cherokee investment Partners.
Isaac Horton, being the overachiever he is, co founded and is
the Chairman of the Eco Channel. This business is based on energy management.
This allows consumers to reduce their energy up to 20 percent. This is
where the cash savings and monetary value seems to rear its beautiful
head.
Ecointerfacce is conveniently set up so that you, the homeowner don’t
have to present cash up front. Dr. Horton has partnered with companies like
the Quantum Fund George Soros, Consolidated Edison of New York, Progress Energy,
Eight Hedge Funds, The Malaysian Government, Lucky Gold Star,
China Trust of Taiwan and Hong Kong Tobacco. Dr. Horton has such
buying power, he was able to purchase businesses within domestic
And international territory.
Horton was an active community member and has served on a variety
Of boards such as:

1.The Board of Visitors at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

2.The Education Committee for the Board of the American Chemical Society

3. The Steering Committee for the Urban Education Intiative of the National
Science Foundatio

4. A National Board Member of the National Organization
Of Black Chemist and Chemical Engineers

5. The Board of Directors and Investment
Committee At Shaw University

6.The Board of Directors of Ravencroft School

7. And the Board of Directors of the Incubator

Well….in response…if more people were like this, this wouldn’t be a druggie
America. They would spend much time doing intellectual stuff and being a
sapient person (smart). As you can see, Horton was an all purpose type
of guy. He is able to divide his time into multiple businesses which helps
him to accomplish more things. Anyone can do this if they be persistent
and stay persistent. That is key.That is main element. More people need
to start doing Big things like this instead of expecting to reach overhead
and get success. More people need to know that hard work is a strain, a
pull of muscle, a sleepless night, but is not a comfortable
little life in a box. Anyways, they need to go back to Nas song I can’ and he is
Referring to people like Dr. Horton. Success like this is delicious like a
desert, strawberry short cake or strawberry cheesecake? No matter
what, It’s all good!

Prodigyrls is a collection of professional career oriented black dolls to inspire black children!

Black dolls

Prodigyrls is a new thing…not like what I’ve ever heard
before. The name itself sounds like a success. I would love
to see a commercial of it. It sounds like something that
could form trends. People everywhere will be asking
did you get your prodigyrls dolls yet?

The reason why I love Prodigyrls is because it shows
little black girls that they are special. I mean they grow
up to be the MOST beautiful women anyways. We are
watched for our uniqueness……let that settle in your
mind. Take it and run with it like a baseball player
doing a homerun.

Prodigyrls is a line of dolls with real genuine facial
features, skin tones, hair, and has many accomplishments
along with them.

Nicole is a black doll which has brown skin and thick
curly hair. She wears pink scrubs and a white lab coat.

Janelle is a black chef doll…she is very enthusiastic about
diet and excercise.

Joy is all about justice. She has a honey colored tone and
golden brown type of wavy hair.

Denise is a black doll interested in chemistry…Why?
She wants to learn how to detangle hair. Therefore,
after months of trial and error she comes up with
a formula for the detangling problem.

The Dr. Daniela Wiggins is a black woman and
Anesthesiologist really disappointed about the lack
of quality black dolls for her daughter. So she
developed her own line of Black dolls with different
hair styles and things of that nature.

I sure I am tired of the lack of black dolls…So I really
adore that this woman did this….She is the type of
person you write about…but oh duh….Im jotting
about her in this post….

She is a true inspiration to black people, especially
black girls and black babies. OUR black people will
enjoy it!

What I particularly love about these dolls is that
they show diversity in hairstyles so that shows
them freedom to look like they look naturally.
In addition, it is more than a set of black dolls,
these dolls are dolls with stories of aspirations
and goals! Take a goal, keep a goal!

Does your child have one of these dolls already
or a black doll in general?
