“In West Philadelphia...” 😂 Didn’t get to go to that playground where the Fresh Prince played basketball but I got to spend time with these lovely ladies in Philadelphia for a presentation at the Afro-American Historical and Genealogical Society Conference this weekend. Also, we went to DC to visit the National Museum of African American History and Culture. #whatatimetobealive #scholars #goodtimes #philadelphia #washingtondc #libertybell #nmaahc

Four (mostly rainy) days in the nation’s capital: The Washington Monument from the top of the Lincoln Memorial; the sixteenth president in white marble; a wall engraved with historical records of slave ships at the National Museum of African American History. . . . . . #washingtondc #dc #nationalmall #washingtonmonument #lincolnmemorial #nationalmuseumofafricanamericanhistoryandculture #nmaahc #nationalmonument #nationalparkservice #nps #tourist #travel #history #americanhistory #museum

3hrs @ the @nmaahc and I'm leaving in pure awe of our amazing history, I honestly could've been there all day. They tried to bury us, ripped us from our homeland, degraded our existence to property for their personal gain, tried to crush every stride that we made at self-sufficiency and yet we came out stronger then they ever hoped we would, I love us yo 😭🖤 (+ the @Oprah exhibit is AMAZING)

When your achievements are so bad-ass that you're featured in a national museum. 🙌 That's reality for Jayne Kennedy at the National Museum of African American History & Culture in Washington, D.C. 👏 @jaynekennedyoverton 📷: Bryan Eugene Price _________________________________ BIO: While still in high school in 1970, Jayne (competing as Jayne Harrison) was the first black woman to be crowned Miss Ohio USA. She went Top 15 at the Miss USA 1970 pageant, & became a famous actress. Jayne was also a female and black pioneer in sports broadcasting. From Wikipedia: "Kennedy won a 1982 NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Actress in a Motion Picture award for her performance as Julie Winters in the 1981 film Body and Soul co-starring alongside her then–husband Leon Isaac Kennedy. Kennedy won the NAACP Theater Award for Best Producer along with her current husband Bill Overton for their production of the highly acclaimed staged musical, The Journey of the African American. Kennedy is also an Emmy Award winner for her coverage of the Rose Parade and was nominated for an Emmy for her coverage of the news feature on soldiers on the DMZ in South Korea for NBC’s Speak Up America in 1980. Ebony Magazine announced her as 'One of the 20 Greatest Sex Symbols of the 20th Century,' and in the 1980s, Coca Cola USA named Jayne Kennedy 'The Most Admired Black Woman in America'." ______________________________ GetMoreSports.com, on her sports background: "She was a pioneer in her field as one of the first African-Americans and females in sports broadcasting and was the first female host of TV’s longest running syndicated sports series, Greatest Sports Legends. She also worked ringside as a commentator for men’s professional boxing through her work at Muhammed Ali Professional Sports." _______________________________ #blackexcellence #rememberthetrailblazers #nmaahc #blackpageantqueens #blackbeautyqueens #missusa #missohusa #missohiousa #missohio #jaynekennedy #americanwomen #africanamericans #africanamericanwomen #blackhollywood #blackcelebrities #blackcelebs #blackactress #blackactresses #sportscasters #blackhistory #blackhistory365 #americanhistory #bpqusa #bpqjaynekennedy

I want to focus on kindness, as well as keeping memories alive. Artist #clementinehunter painted this baptism- the congregation walks to the riverside to welcome a new member into its fold. The seriousness of the ceremony is emphasized by the strictly placed lineup of clergy and women in black and white as well as with the three in the river, about to take the plunge underneath the water's surface. The purpose of a baptism is to wash away old sins and habits, and to be reborn, like the way a mother breaks water to give birth to a new life. To emphasize the second point, we see a bright red matronly figure in the middle, kneeling down in prayer. If we look, we can see kindness and the state of God's grace all around us-no matter how difficult the circumstances are otherwise. I would Iike to think that Clementine painted this memory, out of thousands of others, to remind herself of the good times in her long, incredibly difficult life as a plantation laborer. And so that memory, time and place have been preserved, one of many artifacts for @nmaahc to show its visitors every day. I write more about the exhibit and the people involved with it @sugarcanemagazine , your source for all things related to the African Diaspora.

Raye Montague, a Little Rock native who became a pioneer for minority-group women as a civilian engineer with the U.S. Navy, died Wednesday. She was 83. Considered a "hidden figure" for her trailblazing work over a 33-year career, Montague revolutionized the way the Navy designed ships by developing a computer program that created rough drafts of ship specification. That allowed the Navy to cut the time it took to build a ship's draft design from two years to 18 hours and 26 minutes. #blackhistory #becauseofthemwecan #hiddenfigures #rayemontague #navy #engineer #technology #blackwomenmatter #shero #rip #legend #nmaahc #littlerock

New episode of my podcast #raptheology - Episode 16 “Stop Feeding The White Women.” If there were a subtitle it would be, “Cite Black Women.” If there was a Sub/sub title it would be, “When you’ve been praising ww for doing the absolute least.” If there was a brief abstract it would be: “This is a story all about how I taught your fave and you gave her follows, likes, dollars, and a huge platform to regurgitate my information without proper credit.” The Thesis Statement would be: “Cut that out!” #preacheb 😐 Also... just relaunched www.hiphopwomanist.com Working on the PreachEb directory over there so you can easily search your fave to see if there is a #hiphopbiblestudy for them. Probably is. Easiest way to find it now is to search #biblestudywith _____ and insert your faves name at the end of the hashtag and Boom... we probably already preached that! But if not... Soon come! You can evangelize in this space by tagging folk and telling them about the work I’m doing with hip hop - and it don’t stop! #citeblackwomen #hiphopwomanist #hiphopwomanism
