Repost @ theblackpound Jamaica and the Republic of South Africa are to sign a commercial agreement which will see businesses in both countries collaborating on nutraceuticals, research and development. The agreement will supplement the current partnership in place for bilateral scientific research on nutraceuticals, which came into effect in 2015. This was revealed by chargé d' affaires of the South African High Commission, Phillip Riley, while addressing a National Commission on Science and Technology symposium at the Jamaica Conference Centre in Kingston last Thursday. “The agreement will allow bush medicine to transition into the modern economy,” said Riley. “[It will explore ways that] these plants can feed us better, give us better nutrition, and how we can take those ingredients and commercialise them and turn them into businesses.” . #blackhistory #blackconsciousness #blackexcellence #nubia #nubian #kemet #cushite #cush #blacklove #africanunity #africa #blackspirituality #moorishhistory #melanin #blackamoors #blackpeople #blackart #africanscience #blackmoors #ancientegypt #blackworld #melanated #panafricanism #blackknowledge #blackculture #moors #ancientknowledge #blackwisdom #africanpeople #ancientafrica

Repost @ habeshatings Located in northern Ethiopia and Eritrea, Aksum was deeply involved in the trade network between India and the Mediterranean. Aksum is mentioned in the first century C.E. Periplus of the Erythraean Sea as an important marketplace for ivory, which was exported throughout the ancient world.💎💎💎💎💎💎 The Empire of Aksum at its height extended across portions of present-day Eritrea, northern Ethiopia, Yemen, southern Saudi Arabia, northern Djibouti, and northern Sudan. The capital city of the empire was Aksum, now in northern Ethiopia. Today a country village, the city of Aksum was once a bustling metropolis, a bustling cultural and economic center. Two hills and two streams lie on the east and west expanses of the city; perhaps providing the initial impetus for settling this area. Along the hills and plain outside the city, the Aksumites had cemeteries with elaborate grave stones called Steale, or obelisks. Other important cities included Yeha, Hawulti, Matara, Adulis, and Qohaito, the last three of which are now in Eritrea. #quick-history #habeshatings . #blackhistory #blackconsciousness #blackexcellence #nubia #nubian #kemet #cushite #cush #blacklove #africanunity #africa #blackspirituality #melanin #blackpeople #blackart #africanscience #ancientegypt #blackworld #melanated #panafricanism #blackknowledge #blackculture #moors #ancientknowledge #blackwisdom #africanpeople #ancientafrica

Repost @ habeshatings The Gadaa system is an indigenous egalitarian democratic system practiced among the Oromo nation of East Africa for the last six hundred years. Among other structural elements of Gadaa system is its legislative body commonly known as Gadaa General Assembly. The assembly takes place under a sycamore tree - a symbolic representation of dialogue and consensus. The power of the Gadaa general assembly is to exercise supreme legislative authority. Its functions include (but are not limited to) reviewing laws at work, proclaiming new laws, impeaching the men in power, and settling major disputes that could not have been resolved at the lower levels of its judicial organ(s). Any decision passed by the general assembly is final and cannot be reversed by any other assembly (Asmerom 1973: 93). The legislative and adjudicatory supremacy of the general assembly is historically conditioned and culturally deep-rooted. A number of scholars have studied Gadaa, Harvard PhD Legesse has written that Gadaa is "one of the most astonishing and instructive turns the evolution of human society has taken". . The late Donald Levine has said that Gadaa is "one of the most complex systems of social organization ever devised by the human imagination". For Jalata, Gadaa represents "the totality of Oromo civilization".

Repost @theblackpound In 1902, hoping to improve her grandfather’s poor health with a better climate, the Ball family moved to Honolulu, Hawaii. He died soon after and the family relocated back to Seattle, where Ball earned degrees in both pharmaceutical chemistry and pharmacy from the University of Washington. After receiving offers for scholarships, Ball decided to return to Hawaii, where she became both the first woman and the first African-American to earn a master’s degree in chemistry from the College of Hawaii (now the University of Hawaii). She was approached by Dr. Harry T. Hollmann in Hawaii to find a cure for leprosy using chaulmoogra oil. In less than a year, Ball found a way to inject the oil to cure the disease, with minimal side effects hat was in use for 20 years. As she died at 24, Ball didn’t get a chance to publish her findings, as a result, Arthur L. Dean continued her work, never crediting Ball for the initial discovery. Six years after her death, Dr. Hollmann, published a paper giving Ball the proper credit she deserved, which still went widely unnoticed. Acknowledging the importance of Ball’s work through this scholarship, Paul Wermager stated: Not only did she overcome the racial and gender barriers of her time to become one of the very few African-American women to earn a master’s degree in chemistry, [but she] also developed the first useful treatment for leprosy. . #blackhistory #blackconsciousness #blackexcellence #nubia #nubian #kemet #cushite #cush #blacklove #africanunity #africa #blackspirituality #moorishhistory #melanin #blackamoors #blackpeople #blackart #africanscience #blackmoors #ancientegypt #blackworld #melanated #panafricanism #blackknowledge #blackculture #moors #ancientknowledge #blackwisdom #africanpeople #ancientafrica

Messages of the day.... All it took was for me to have pneumonia one time, something ive never endured and absolutely hated it. Also a great way to actually SIT MY ASS DOWN FROM ALL WORK & hustles !!! I did my research read a lot while I've been down for almost a month come friday to understand that the foods I eat was causing mucus and bacteria in my left lung. M.D. doctors are so full of shit, they go to school for all those years and don't know shit about nutrition in full detail. I had to reach out to a N.D. (Natural Dr) holistic health approach. Having pneumonia scared the shit outta me a very dangerous illness😵😥 I still was to scared to get back in the swing of things cus my lungs still wasn't 100% so I'm still taking things easy However I feel amazing with juicing and practicing plant based lifestyle. Never been a Red meat eater I love ONLY my Salmon and Chicken those are my weaknesses 🙏🏾😭😋😥 this will be by far hard to change for a lifestyle considering im conditioned to me some hot fish and a hot piece of chicken 😍😋😥. Anyway keep my mindset, consistency and will power in prayers thanks 🙏🏾😘🖤💜 🗣️🗣️🔥🔥🔥🔥👂🏾👂🏾👂🏾🖤#parasitecleanse #phbalance #juicelife #cleaneating #eatclean #foodforthought #blackhealth @ceo_takela 🖤#letthatsinkin #deepmessage #blackwomenempowerment @ceo_takela #blackmindsmatter #messageoftheday #motivationalblogger #healthtips #blackknowledge #blackinfluence #melaninpoppin #blackstrength #blackculture #blackempowerment #blackvegan #healthawarenes #alkalinevegannews #alkalineliving #alkalinediet #healthandwealth #fitlife #veganlife #blackveganlifestyle #blackfitness

Repost @forafricans Hello, I’m Saïda Augustine [@saida_augustine]. Today I’m taking over @forafricans account to share with you some images from my trip in Ségou, South Central Mali. __ Ségou is the second important city in Mali, it is also a historic town and was the first capital of the Bambara Kingdom. With its unique landscapes, creative craftsmanship and architectural heritage, Ségou is seen as the Mali’s cultural capital. __ For me, photography is a way to express myself, to share my vision with others. I use photography as a means to inform and communicate about different cultures around us, cultures I discover when I travel. I’m not only a photographer, my job is to create an entire visual identity for any project through photography, set design, merchandising including communication, marketing strategy. __ This is a picture of me with Mahamadou Bouaré. We met him on the Ségou Peninsula, while buying fruits and water. He and his friends invited us to have lunch with them. Then we started to talk and finally took a picture together coz i love how he’s dressed, so stylish! . #forafricans #mali #dakar #everydayafrica #dakarlives #blackhistory #blackconsciousness #blackexcellence #nubia #nubian #kemet #cushite #cush #blacklove #africanunity #africa #blackspirituality #melanin #blackpeople #africanscience #ancientegypt #blackworld #melanated #panafricanism #blackknowledge #blackculture #ancientknowledge #blackwisdom #africanpeople

Repost @youcantbewokeandbroke (CNN) - Her cells are responsible for the polio vaccine, gene mapping and in vitro fertilization to name a few. But for a long time most of the public didn't know her contribution to modern medicine. Neither did she because her cells were harvested without her consent. This week, the Smithsonian unveiled a portrait of Henrietta Lacks, the black tobacco farmer who ended up changing the world. Her cells 🎁have allowed for advances in cancer treatment, AIDS research, cloning, stem-cell studies and so much more. They traveled to the moon to test the effects of zero gravity, and scientists have sold and purchased them by the billions. The oil-on-linen work, "Henrietta Lacks (HeLa): The Mother of Modern Medicine" will hang inside one of the main entrances of the National Portrait Gallery through November.✅ No other painted portrait of Lacks existed 🤷🏾‍♂️before this, said Dorothy Moss, the curator of painting and sculpture at the National Portrait Gallery. Lacks died in 1951 at the age of 31 from an aggressive form of cervical cancer. During her treatment, a surgeon cut cells from her cervix. Those cells became the first human cell line to reproduce outside the body. 😮They came to be known as HeLa cells and became invaluable to medical researchers. Little was known about Lacks' impact on modern medicine outside the medical community until author Rebecca Skloot wrote a book about it in 2010. The New York Times best-selling book, "The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks," introduced Lacks -- and what she did for medicine -- to the world. An HBO film by the same name, starring Oprah Winfrey, helped disseminate her story further. 👀🗣⚡️Follow @YouCantBeWokeAndBroke #blackhistory #blackconsciousness #blackexcellence #nubia #nubian #kemet #cushite #cush #blacklove #africanunity #africa #blackspirituality #moorishhistory #melanin #blackamoors #blackpeople #blackart #africanscience #blackmoors #ancientegypt #blackworld #melanated #panafricanism #blackknowledge #blackculture #moors #ancientknowledge #blackwisdom #africanpeople #ancientafrica
