furiou3dawg Day 28, Black History Spotlight continued... #rp @namuhstradamus "| meet James Arthur Baldwin, #actor, #writer, #poet & #civilrights activist. James was born to Emma Jones, a single mother who'd divorced his father, in the #Harlem community of #nyc. she re-married a preacher named David Baldwin & James would inherit his surname & know him as his father. #JamesBaldwin & his father had a strained relationship, he would mention in his adult years of attributed his father's harshness to the difficulty he had feeding a family of 9 children. while attending high school, James met #BeaufordDelaney, an esteemed painter of the #HarlemRenaissance & adopted him as a #mentor. meeting & working w/ Delaney was his first realization of awareness that he could express himself through #art. james was an active writer/poet throughout his developmental years often showcasing his talent in school. post high school graduation, Baldwin began writing a novel & acquired a fellowship to cover living expenses. his exceptional writing granted him publications in many national periodicals. at the age of 24, he moved to #paris, france as a means to escape the racial & homosexual prejudice he experienced in the united states. many of his works were written abroad as baldwin was a key literary figure of the #civilrightsmovement. he was a member of the #sncc, #core, was present for the #selma marches, friends w/ the likes of #harrybelafonte, #martinlutherkingjr (#mlk), #lenahorne & #malcolmx. his writings expressed the black experience in america & much, much more : from #poverty to #prejudice, #homophobia to black church culture, Baldwin became the premier writer during the #civilrights movement, gracing the cover of #timemagazine in 1963. he, in addition to being a civil rights champion, was a brilliant novelist, poet, activist & playwright. James Baldwin died in 1987 of esophageal #cancer while in #France but will forevermore be a member of the #blackexcellence." via @PhotoRepost_app 6s

pacified.mass #c is for #cooking #infosec team #theamericans & #Hollande #ccctf this is what the #education director is making. The entire #house smells like death aka #Russian #food yes this pot is as big as #it looks. She will #eat this all week. Right? I have no idea how. She's happy? I don't think she even has a recipe. The neighbors I had that were #first generation america citizens in #Bellevue #Nashville from #Ukraine said it was "ok" then she taught her how to make it better. They are #jewish and their mom would do awesome Holliday food all year I had never heard about and brought me some. It's why I took a bunch of this so seriously. I played their kids growing up in #Warhammer and then went to #belmont partly because they had done so well there. You have no idea how much Ukrainian lives matter to me. Much less jewish ones. I cleaned their dads sides grandfathers brains off the wall with both moms when he decided he had had enough of lung #cancer so yeah. That was the year before #college 5min
