djalibabavancouver Day eight, although this video focuses on George Wallace, we are choosing to shine light on the true heroes in this monumental stand off. We honour James Alexander Hood & Vivian Malone who were the first African Americans enrolled at the University of Alabama in 1963

rc_naacp Its Our Founders Week !
Here's a little History Lesson Founded Feb. 12. 1909, the NAACP is the nation's oldest, largest and most widely recognized grassroots-based civil rights organization. Its more than half-million members and supporters throughout the United States and the world are the premier advocates for civil rights in their communities, campaigning for equal opportunity and conducting voter mobilization.

Founding group 
The NAACP was formed partly in response to the continuing horrific practice of lynching and the 1908 race riot in Springfield, the capital of Illinois and resting place of President Abraham Lincoln. Appalled at the violence that was committed against blacks, a group of white liberals that included Mary White Ovington and Oswald Garrison Villard, both the descendants of abolitionists, William English Walling and Dr. Henry Moscowitz issued a call for a meeting to discuss racial justice. Some 60 people, seven of whom were African American (including W. E. B. Du Bois, Ida B. Wells-Barnett and Mary Church Terrell), signed the call, which was released on the centennial of Abraham Lincoln's birth.

Other early members included Joel and Arthur Spingarn, Josephine Ruffin, Mary Talbert, Inez Milholland, Jane Addams, Florence Kelley, Sophonisba Breckinridge, John Haynes Holmes, Mary McLeod Bethune, George Henry White, Charles Edward Russell, John Dewey, William Dean Howells, Lillian Wald, Charles Darrow, Lincoln Steffens, Ray Stannard Baker, Fanny Garrison Villard, and Walter Sachs.

The NAACP's principal objective is to ensure the political, educational, social and economic equality of minority group citizens of United States and eliminate race prejudice. The NAACP seeks to remove all barriers of racial discrimination through the democratic processes. #naacp #blackexcellence

thewokefolk @aunjanue_ellis attended the #NAACPImageAwards in a dress that read "Take It Down Mississippi" in reference to the state's use of the confederate emblem on their state flag. Mississippi is the last state in the country that still uses this hateful and inherently racist symbol. Thank you, Aunjanue, for usingn your platform to advance the cause! We salute you! (Shoutout to Sami Rattner, #Quantico costume designer & the designer behind this bold & blatant dress.) #StayWoke #TheWokeFolk #NAACP #imageawards 41min

prettygirlssweat TEMPLE UNIVERSITY Pretty Girls Sweat Ambassadors collaborated with @deltamu_akas @byanymeansdance on Pearlfect Health, an interactive program highlighting heart health. We were fortunate to have Umme Salim-Beasley, Head Coach @tuwgymnastics lead the Pretty Girls Sweat warm-up. Although it want all fun and games, our #SweatSisters enjoyed working out and learning hip-hop moves. We learned that heart disease and stroke are the No. 1 killers among women in the U.S. and other facts that promote the importance of healthy eating and exercise. // Written By: @prettygirlssweattu Ambassador Brenda Choi, 20 (@BrenChoi) #PrettyGirlsSweat #TempleOwls #BlackHistoryMonth #NAACP #pinkgoesred 54min

#whoaretherealdevils The founding member of the New York City chapter, WEB DuBois, said the Boule’ was created to
“keep the black professional away from the ranks of Marcus Garvey.” (One thing that needs to be pointed out is the time period. Shortly after the founding of the Boule’ was also a time Marcus Garvey’s “Back to Afrika” movement was reaching a million-plus people without television or radio.) “the importance to steal the black professional away from Garvey because an Afrocentric organization that articulated and captured the black professional would give YT no safe haven in the black community, so the Boule’ — the remaking of the house negro was necessary to build a group of negroes who had an investment in protecting the white system as produced by whites having stolen this land…This is post reconstruction. Taking away the articulate negro, now desiring to replace them with organized institutions to keep them away from self improvement. So we find in the same period, as the founding of the Boule’, the founding of the 4 black male (Alpha Phi Alpha, Kappa Alpha Psi, Omega Psi Phi, and Phi Beta Sigma) and 4 black female (Alpha Kappa Alpha, Delta Sigma Theta, Zeta Phi Beta, and Sigma Gamma Rho) college-based fraternities and sororities…We also find the founding of the NAACP and Urban League.”DuBois was one of the strongest opponents of Garvey and was an instrumental “tool” in stopping one of the strongest grassroots movements in this century. What was Garvey’s plan? His plan was to take as many Afrikans from the America’s and start a settlement in the nation of Liberia and then help their new nation produce and control their own rubber crops and other industries in natural resources. #NAACP #naacpimageawards #feminism #LGBT #BlackLivesMatter
