lelav89 Let's do something a little different today and highlight someone who is not black but contributed greatly to the #BlackHistory and the #CivilRightsMovement
Joan Trumpauer Mulholland (born September 14, 1941) is an American civil rights activist and a Freedom Rider from Arlington, Virginia. She is known for taking part in sit-ins, being the first white to integrate Tougaloo College in Jackson, Mississippi, and to be a part of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority,[1] joining Freedom Rides, and being held on death row in Parchman Penitentiary. She risked her relationship with her family, her education at Duke University and her life in order to participate in the civil rights movement. She was even hunted down by the KKK during freedom summer and escaped miraculously. She is now retired after teaching English as a second language for 40 years and has started a foundation known as the Joan Trumpauer Mulholland foundation that is sought to educate the youth about the civil rights movement and will also teach youth how to become activists in their own communities.

  •   _____baddiie I feel like when people do stuff that supports black lives matter or that it's pro-black people's racist sides begin to show. Pro black isn't anti-white and beyonces super bowl performance wasn't attacking anybody. People are crazy 49min

lelav89 I lived on the street he was lynched on for about 6 years
Michael Donald, 20, is often referred to as the last man lynched in the United States. In 1981, his badly beaten body was found hanging from a tree in Mobile, Alabama with his throat slit. The FBI conducted an investigation that led to the arrest and conviction of two Klan members responsible for the murder.
#R.I.P. MICHAEL DONALD KNOW YOUR HISTORY !!!!

lelav89 In honor of it being my first day of track practice #ImCoaching #NotAnAthlete
Here is the legendary #FlorenceJoyner #FloJo

#FloJo #Olympics
Florence Delorez Griffith Joyner (December 21, 1959 – September 21, 1998), also known as Flo-Jo, was an American track and field athlete. She is considered the fastest woman of all time based on the fact that the world records she set in 1988 for both the 100 m and 200 m still stand and have yet to be seriously challenged. She died in her sleep as the result of an epileptic seizure in 1998 at the age of 38.

lelav89 That moment in history when raising your fist is racist but paying homage to the confederate flag is a source of southern pride .... But oh wait this is the America that got mad about Starbucks having a red cup to honor the holiday season ... #GetItTogetherPeople 1d

  •   anniecakestoo our country is the worst sometimes 22h
  •   lelav89 @anniecakestoo we have major work to do .. It's so frustrating sometimes .. People don't want to read and learn the history ....what's working my nerves is the fact that people are comparing the black panthers to the KKK and they had to completely different agendas 21h
  •   lelav89 @jahi_minkah pray for our country 21h
  •   anniecakestoo you're right and I agree with you! people (mostly white, uneducated people) are afraid of not being in the majority any longer and are unwilling to open their minds to anything besides what they've been preached their whole life. it's very discouraging. especially when you try and educate these people. 21h
  •   lelav89 @anniecakestoo yeah that's the thing you want to educate them and make them aware and show them facts but they would rather choose the ignorance is bliss road ... These are the same people who support trump 20h
  •   anniecakestoo I couldn't have said it better myself. 20h

lelav89 The love that @Beyonce has for Michael Jackson is out of this world .. Check out who inspired her 2016 halftime wardrobe ... Additionally since she's the talk of the town and MJ inspires her check out the beginning of MJ's black and white video and look at that black panther roaming around the screen #StayWoke 1d

lelav89 Had a great time in Phoenix, Arizona visiting my Great Uncle and Aunt .... They gave me some great advice both professionally and personally .... I've learned that being around the older generation really is something that we as a young generation should take advantage of because they really do have lots of wisdom to share and bestow upon us 2d
