A new exhibit at a Washington, D.C., museum featuring an abridged version of the Bible sheds light on how Christian missionaries converted enslaved Africans to Christianity by teaching them the Gospel... except the parts about freedom, equality and resistance.
According to NPR, Parts of the Holy Bible, Selected For the Use of the Negro Slaves, in the British West-India Islands, is on display at the Museum of the Bible in Washington, D.C., and is one of only three known copies of this abridged version of the King James Bible. Printed by the Missionary Society For the Conversion of Negro Slaves, the text of the Bible was used by missionaries from England to convert slaves to Christianity. •

“They tried to stop her, but they failed miserably. They overlooked her, tried to discourage her, and sabotage her, but she persevered through it all with her head held high. They talked behind her back and plotted against her, but they didn’t realize that they were messing with an unstoppable, resilient Black Queen. She’s ambitious, intelligent, self-confident, and bold. She’s a Phenomenal Black Queen that didn’t have to compromise her integrity to get ahead. She’s genuinely happy, successful, and free to be herself. She can, she does, she wins!

Aside from @tiwasavage @yemialade @symplysimi @iamseyishay
, who are the other ladies dominating #Afrobeats
? That’s the difficult question I’ve been asking. Is there space for us? Why don’t more of us enter the industry? Why do we compare the ones we have? Where are the female UK Afrobeats artists?

I think it’s really sad when people, usually minorities, die in a tragic and violent situation, like police brutality, and the public’s response is to create a hashtag for them. To remember them via a hashtag. To reduce them to a hashtag. I understand why people may want to circulate such hashtags, as a way of raising awareness, however the hashtag should become before the trauma. Using a hashtag after someone’s passing, does not prevent the occurrence of the situation, instead it stands as a trend; a measure of how ‘woke’ people are. I don’t want to take away from the tragedy and I recognise that such hashtags may serve to prevent the reoccurrence of such sadness in the future, however, it shouldn’t take the death of an innocent to highlight that more needs to be done. We need to recognise these instances of violence, exploit, police brutality and sexual assault, as or before they occur, not once it’s too late.
