Historical marker alongside Alabama highway will honor civil rights martyr William Lewis Moore February 05, 2019 Jerry Smith was humming along U.S. Highway 11 in his light-green, 1961 Chevrolet Corvair, when he came upon something unusual. A man was walking alongside the two-lane highway, pulling a cart, and holding a sign. “I stopped long enough to see that it was something about blacks one way or the other,” said Smith, now 72, of Southside, Alabama, recalling the 1963 incident. “After I...

It is soooooooo clear he has no clue. Now when he coming up? He wasn't studying black history or ancient Egyptology. So how in the hell does he know why the pyramids were built. I have my own theory and it has nothing absolutely nothing to do with a focking store. If he knew his stuff, he would know that during that time Egypt was the richest country in the world. They were so rich that gold dust was used on the streets like sand dust is used today in saloons. But I'm not gonna revisit all...

Douglass's legacy is preserved here at Cedar Hill, where he lived his last 17 years. Read More Welcome to the Frederick...

Re: Obama Chooses Historic Chicago South Side Location For Presidential Library: Will it Help Black Employment?

Norland ·
It'll help Black employment if they hire Black employees; same as any other job. Nothing helps Black employment if no one wants to or hires Black employees. The way Black people are detested in this country, we're all lucky to have been hired or possibly will be hired in the future, if there's a future.

Talking about wealth and natural resources without talking about science and technology is TOTAL NONSENSE! Is oil out of the ground a natural resource or a worthless nuisance? It depends on whether or not you have the knowledge and technology to use it. But see how many Black people will give you a hard time about reading about science and technology. Xum
