Katherine Johnson 1918- Judging by the way Catherine took 2 math, you would think it was her first language. As a child, she counted everything. She skipped seven grades and graduated ahead of her older siblings. As a young woman, she became a math teacher, but her Mentor at the University of West Virginia encourage her to pursue a career as a research mathematician. In 1953, Catherine got her chance. NASA's Langley Research Center in Hampton, Virginia, had recently opened a lab that hired African-American mathematicians. And a time before there were digital calculators, cell phones, or computer Michigan's, the women and men who performed computations were called "computers". Katherine's first assignment was to the flight research division. The United States was in the middle of the Space Race, a period of time in the 1950s and 60s when America and Russia were competing for technological advancement in spaceflight. The top goal: to get a man on the moon. Katherine was one of the people who helped make it happen. Her job was to calculate the flight path for the first mission in space. Imagine: the Earth is rotating, the Moon is revolving, and the rocket has to follow a very specific trajectory in order to reach its moving Target. Even when we can tackle computers were introduced, Katherine was still crucial. She continued Computing at Nasa until her retirement in 1986, and her work influenced every major Space Program up to that point. During the Friendship 7 mission in 1962, John Glenn, the first American to orbit the earth, refused to launch without verification that Catherine herself had double check the math. In 2015, President Barack Obama awarded Katherine the presidential medal of freedom, America's highest civilian honor. #katherinejohnson #blackgirlsrock #blackhistory #blackhistorymonth #blackexcellence #blackpower #melanin #blackgirlmagic #blackandproud #blackculture #blackwoman #history #africanamerican #blackunity #blacklivesmatter
@cleezereport ・・・ The Ole Miss police chief asked people on Monday to stay away from areas of campus this weekend where rallies will be taking place in support of Confederate symbols. The letter was sent to Ole Miss faculty, staff and students. This comes after it was discovered a group out of Memphis called Confederate 901 plan to hold a march that will begin at the Square at 1 p.m. and conclude at the Circle on the Ole Miss campus around 2 p.m. The rally is schedule to last until 5 p.m. on Saturday. “Our highest priority is to maintain a safe campus environment, and the University Police Department has worked with local and state law enforcement agencies in preparation for these events,”the statement from UPD chief Ray Hawkins read. There will be an ‘elevated law-enforcement presence’ on the march route, including both on and off campus to assist in keeping the community safe per the statement. Confederate 901’s reasoning behind the rally is due to the call for Confederate monuments on campus and on the Square to be taken down in recent years. In response to the pro=Confederate rally there is going to be an ‘Anti-Confederate Counter Rally’ taking place at the same time as Confederate 901 is holding theirs. The group holding the counter rally posted on the event’s Facebook page it will be a ‘peaceful protest’ and will ‘not tolerate violence or provocations of violence.’ “The best thing you can do to help keep our campus safe is to stay away from this area of campus on Saturday, February 23,” the statement continued to read. “Your cooperation and support allow us to perform our jobs in the best possible way.” The university is holding a Community Conversation on Wednesday from 3 to 5 p.m. in the Union Ballroom regarding this weekend’s planned events. -------------------------------------------------- Follow me also @therealremyredd #therealremyredd @colossill (The Black App) #BotherVex (BackUp) #blackinamerica #BlackLivesMatter #BlackHistory #blackhistorymonth #BlackLove #StephCurry #Lebron #Nas #Beyonce #Jayz #KimKardashian #cardib #WillSmith #Worldstar #getthestrap #colinkaepernick #Hiphop #DanielClary #JusticeForDanyeJones #oscars #jussiesmollett

Mamie Phipps Clark 1917-1983 Despite growing up during the Great Depression and living in a segregated South, Mamie had a happy childhood, comforted by family and school. She graduated at 16 and earned a scholarship to Harvard University. Although she began with a major in math and a minor in physics, she eventually switch to psychology, the same major as Kenneth Clark, her future husband and research partner. Mamie had never dreamed that segregation could be challenged, but in the summer of 1938 she worked for civil rights activist and NAACP lawyer Charles Houston. She saw famous lawyers gear up to tackle the monster that was segregation, and she realized that with the combined efforts of determined people, they could make real change. The work Mamie did in college was the beginning of breakthrough research that became known as the doll tests. The study showed an overwhelming preference for white dolls in black children ages 3 to 7. The children, half of whom attended segregated schools, we're presented four dolls- two brown with black hair and two white with yellow hair- and we're given instructions like, "give me the doll that is the nice doll", "give me the doll that looks bad", and "give me the doll that looks like you." Mamie and Kenneth concluded that the students from segregated schools had developed a sense of inferiority and self-hatred, and the integration was helpful to both black and white children in achieving a healthy racial self-identification and improving race relations. This became key evidence in the landmark Supreme Court case Brown versus Board of Education, which, in 1954, ruled racial segregation unconstitutional in American public schools. Mamei's research altered the course of history and every child in America! She followed her passion, and it led her to make a difference in the world. #mamiephippsclark #blackgirlsrock #blackhistory #blackhistorymonth #blackexcellence #blackpower #melanin #blackgirlmagic #blackandproud #blackculture #blackwoman #history #africanamerican #blackunity #blacklivesmatter

I'm pretty sure they have been holding this info for years. Some times I think our daily reality is nothing but a distraction from the stuff that's happening above, or underground in these secret projects and this secret information about the very nature of our planet... they hid photos of pyramids on mars...

Ella Fitzgerald 1917-1996 As a young woman in Virginia, Ella long for Independence and dreamed of one day becoming an Entertainer. As a teenager, she was living on the streets and singing for pennies. But in 1934, at the age of 17, she got her big break. She entered the amateur night contest at the Apollo Theater in Harlem. She signed up as a dancer at first, but changed her routine to singing when she saw her competition: they were dressed and sparkling matching dresses, while she was in tattered clothes. But she wowed the audience with her unique voice and won the first place prize of $25 (worth about $500 today), literally going from Rags to Riches. The following year, she landed a role as lead singer with Chick Webb and his orchestra, a popular band that regularly played at one of Harlem's hottest nightclubs: The Savoy Ballroom. At the same time, she was building a solo career. In 1938, she recorded her first album and her first hit single, "A- tisket A- tasket." Her career snowballed from there. In the 1950s, she developed her famous instrumental style of singing called scatting. She calibrated with grades from all over the music industry, including Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong, Count Basie, and Frank Sinatra. In 1958, she made history when she became the first African-American woman to win a Grammy. Over her long and successful career, she recorded more than 200 albums and some 2000 songs. Ella has gone down in history as one of the most iconic voices of all time. She was falling known as the first lady of jazz and the first lady of song. #ellafitzgerald #blackgirlsrock #blackhistory #blackhistorymonth #blackexcellence #blackpower #melanin #blackgirlmagic #blackandproud #blackculture #blackwoman #history #africanamerican #blackunity #blacklivesmatter

I knew it. These home robot things are spying on you. I was watching the local news here in the bay area and they had stories about how Google was so environmentally conscious regarding its construction meanwhile they just got caught with hidden microphones in their product. How much more sinister could it get? Why is the news running stories showing a huge corporation in such a positive light right when a huge scandal erupts? Think about this shit.

An unconscionable number of women are persecuted for acting in self defense 😔 rest in power.
“Black Girl Magic means that I have the power to overcome anything. Especially when we're in a world where you're told that you can't do something or you're less than, I'm reminded that my ancestors have overcome so much. There's still so much work to be done, and I have the power to overcome it.” -Michelle Carter #art #artwork #drawing #pastels #charcoal #progress #BlackHistoryMonth2019 #BlackHistoryMonth ⁠ ⁠ #art #drawings #blacklivesmatter #history #amazingpeople @ahistoryofblackexcellence #strength #michellecarter #olympics #olympian @shotdiva
