Black Men In History Tonight on “Conversations Of A Sistah”


Garvey_Douglas

There was Marcus Garvey and Frederick Douglas. Garvey a Jamaican political leader, publisher, journalist, entrepreneur, and orator who was a staunch proponent of the Black nationalism and Pan-Africanism movements. Douglas, an American social reformer, orator, writer and statesman who was a firm believer in the equality of all people, whether black, female, Native American, or recent immigrant, famously quoted as saying, “I would unite with anybody to do right and with nobody to do wrong.”

Malcolm_X_

And then there was Malcolm X, an African-American Muslim minister and human rights activist. To his admirers, he was a courageous advocate for the rights of blacks, a man who indicted white America in the harshest terms for its crimes against black Americans. Detractors accused him of preaching racism, black supremacy, and violence. He has been called one of the greatest and most influential African-Americans in history.

At the same time there was Martin Luther King, Jr. an American clergyman, activist, and leader in the African-American Civil Rights Movement. He is best known for his role in the advancement of civil rights using nonviolence and civil disobedience. King has become a national icon in the history of American progressivism. On October 14, 1964, King received the Nobel Peace Prize for combating racial inequality through nonviolence.

  1. Hey Blog fam. I am sooo sorry that I was unable to be on the Blog Queens show last week. I was honored to be on the show and to speak to our Blog Queen and dissapointed that I couldn’t be on. At around 2:45 that day I was in a terrible car accident and was hospitalized so I would’ve been unable to call in. I’m in the process of healing mind,body,and soul at this time and once I’m fully healed I promise to make this up to our BQ and to you my blog fam in I will even have a candle giveaway.

    I hope you all understand. XOXO-Cherina

  2. Love that song she played King Holiday.

    Once a year we celebrate
    Washington and Lincoln on their birth dates
    And now a third name is added to the list
    A man of peace, (Drum Major for Justice)
    Now, now, now every January on the third Monday
    We pay homage to the man who paved the way
    For freedom, justice and equality
    To make the world a better place for you and me
    It’s a holiday, it’s a gathering
    For the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King

    Dr. King tried to love somebody
    (Do you wanna love somebody)
    For his sake put your hate away, take a day

    Take a day to love somebody)
    Don’t play on the Holiday, work to find a better way
    (Everybody love somebody now)

    Oh, everybody sing
    For Martin Luther King
    Oh, let freedom ring (That’s right)
    For Martin Luther King, now sing

    Holiday! Holiday!
