I went to get my hair done. It cost me 60 dollars. I got my hair braided in circles. I love thie style. Its new and different.
How many black seamen have you heard of? Did you hear of James
Forten? Anyways, Black people have taken on many roles in life. So I try to
think of the roles that black people take the least of. There are
roles that black people take the most of . But I like to highlight
something special about each role that black people do
and how we as black people have shown our brilliance. Moving on.
The Navy recruited both the free and enslave black people
from the start of the Revolutionary War. Many black people were already
experienced sailors that served in British and state navies. Philadelphia’s
free blacks were more likely to serve on privateers than in the
Pennsylvania navy. Black seamen were specifically valued as pilots.
Others took on roles as shipyard carpenters and laborers.
Maryland and Virginia’s navies made extensive use of blacks, even
buying slaves for wartime naval service. Virginia’s state commissioner
noted that it was cheaper to hire blacks than whites and that white
people got exemption from military service by substituting a slave.
In his memoirs, US. Navy Commodore James Barron, who served
as a captain in the Virginia navy during the war, remembered
several black men among the “Courageous patriots who…in justice
to their merits should not be forgotten.
Whatever we do, we do it big” by me.
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!
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
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.

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.
Pants are cute, but dresses are ultimate. I wear pants to be
comfortable , but dresses to look really really nice. They show off
a woman’s pretty legs. They look classy in some instances and they
allow you to appreciate the lady-like nature of a woman.
You can look glamorous without all the effort in a black maxi dress. They
are good for an informal date. In this dress, you’ll look great but comfortable.
It looks good with chic gladiator sandals. When the weather gets colder, match
it up with ankle boots and a motorcycle jacket.
A slip dress is another dress women should have. You can match it up
with a strappy pair of sandals. I especially love the look of the slip dress on
the website, which has a sheer lace on the bottom and a little area of sheer
lace on the top.
And what about the sheath dress? It is one of those type of office
dresses. It’s a black dress with a built in belt and its one single color- black.
It looks classy, it’s in style and so nice on the eyes.
Number 4, is the flared dress. It’s yet another black dress with a
ripple type outline at the bottom. This reminds me of a superhero type
of dress. It has such a pritsy type of style.
Fifth, is the lace dress. It’s like a maze in there. The dress’ whole
outline is of lace. It’s long, up to knee length. It goes well with heels of
any color if it’s a black dress.
What a site! what a site! I love a few of the dresses on this site and there’s a
few I don’t care for.But in honor of the beautiful dresses, I wrote this article. The
dresses I highlighted above flatter a woman’s figure. The other dresses, you decide if
you like them or not just like the dresses I like. Which dresses would you wear?
WHich dresses would you not wear? Or would you wear them all?
Well, if you’re knowledgeable, you know about the history of black
people in slavery. And yes enduring such painful experiences of slavery
can make anyone flee. Being a slave in itself makes people flee.
Well, this one African American man named William Still was one
of those who helped runwayss get to Freedom’s Land. He had to
smuggle them across the US border to Canada. Bounty hunters could
back then legally abduct former slaves living in the free northern states.
Yet under the protection of the British, Canada provided sanctuary for
William Still put his life on the line to help runaway slaves make
it to freedom in the years leading up to America’s Civil War. Still was the
director of a complex network of Abolitionists, sympathizers and safe
houses that went from Philadelphia to Southern Ontario. He spent 14 years
helping about 800 former slaves to escape. He even kept meticulous records
of the many escaped slaves who passed through the Philadelphia station.
When the Civil War was over, Still published secret notes he had kept in
diaries during those years. Even today, there is some of the best evidence
we have of the workings of the Underground Railroad documented. It tells how the
freedom seekers who used it, where they came from, how they escaped,
and the families they left behind.
Well, he is truly a man with a heart of gold. I just had to share
this information about him. History means alot more because of him.
He is passionate and his story is savory.
