Regrann from @story_and_her - White Supremest Trump has referred to Haiti and Africa as “ #Shitholes ”. #Racist with agendas (to continue to oppress and lie to black people to keep them from learning their truth and rising economically, politically and socially to the top of industry and thus threaten the current position of the wealthy elite who are largely white males ) will always lie about places like Haiti, the rest of the Caribbean and Africa because they do not want you to learn about your true history and power. Enslaved Africans ALWAYS fought to the death for their freedom, they did not go willingly. Haiti was the first group of enslaved Africans to fight the Europeans and win. They inspired many other enslaved Africans in the Caribbean to rise fight and win. Why do you think we’re still here?...Haiti were and are a symbol of black power and hope, which is why fascists like Trump will mock and try to slander Haiti without giving the true history and context. The reason Haiti and some parts of Africa are in the poor economic state they are in today is because Europeans robbed, pillaged and desecrated them to a state they hoped they’d never rise from again. Now they have to make the rest of us believe that all we can ever be is downtrodden so that we will never feel empowered enough to rise again.

Black AF Viewing of Black Panther! The backstory: I knew that I only wanted to see this film with Black people, created a private event on FB to ensure it stayed safe and Black-only. Black folks in San Diego understood and supported the vision. We wanted to look to our left, right and up at the screen and see *us* and be unapologetically BLACK, AF!! Bought 1 theater with 246 seats and sold out of tickets in 12 hours. Bought a 2nd theater with 103 seats and sold out in 2 hours. 349 BLACK people to see the Blackest film of 2018 and we looked absolutely AMAZING! We opened the program with libations and the Black National Anthem. Then we gave the remaining ticket money back to our attendees by raffling off items from Black businesses. We paid for all of the food for all of our precious Black babies so their parents wouldn’t have to worry about that! @kendricklamar ’s ‘Alright’ was our musical selection before the feature presentation and then we closed out our benediction with Swag Surfin. WHAT A NIGHT! Did I mention we also had an official Black-only after party?!!! (Video coming soon ). Could not have done this without the team: @ohnaturalkay @b_lauren !!!

Go black boy fly (link in bio ) This is my brother. No, not because he purchased my book. No, not because he hipped me to his hella fresh style. No, not because he’s CURRENTLY running around the city of #losangeles making sure that “My Nephew Emmett” has a chance to be seen on the big screen tonight. This is my brother because it’s all love between us. He shares space and time and wisdom and laughs with me, and I couldn’t appreciate it more if I tried. What I wrote inside your book Naim, I meant it. I appreciate and love you family. #goblackboyfly #paffnow #thankful #grateful #God #Jesus #friendship #family and ps. My bro doesn’t even believe in Jesus (I didn’t want to be fake when posting his pic ) but we bang with each other anyways, because Love covers and overcomes all!!! I’m so grateful.

Social Impact 🚨: Every month, we gift partial proceeds from the sale of #GeenieBox to a social impact initiative that advances women and girls. The initiative is selected by the Geenie curator of the month. 👸🏾🎁✨ 💫We’re proud to be able to keep the circle of giving going in a very real way. For Black History Month, our Geenie Patrisse Cullors ( @osopepatrisse ) selected the @momsrising - Maternal Justice Campaign. Patrisse, who’s currently a Senior Fellow at @momsrising , wrote on their blog recently: “The U.S. maternal mortality rate is the worst it’s been in 15 years, and illness and death during pregnancy are on the rise. Black women are four times more likely to die from pregnancy complications than white women. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We can do better. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Although I survived my experience with pregnancy, many Black women haven’t and won’t. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ At MomsRising, I’m helping to build and support a strong maternal justice program. We envision a world where Black mamas have the rights, respect and resources to thrive before, during and after pregnancy.”👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾 We can, indeed, do better. 👉🏾👉🏾Grab your #BHM GeenieBox TODAY and gift #BlackWomanGenius to yourself and others! 👈🏾👈🏾 #clicklinkinbio

when they ask why we're so excited about Black Panther... #wakandaquestionisthat ?! . . . Let's just take a moment to understand the magnitude of what's happening here. I think it's safe to say this is the most substantial display of Black unity and buying power we've ever seen. Sure; it's 'just a movie' to those who aren't fans of the comic, but what can we learn from this phenomenon? . . Firstly, we have proven that there is unfathomable power in our unity. We have the ability to create trends, fund our desires and shatter existing records. We 👏🏾 are 👏🏾 unstoppable 👏🏾 and we are leaving the theater INSPIRED. Let's use that same energy to sow into our communities. Let's support one another with the same level of love and ferocity. . . Secondly, #representationmatters You can't tell me that seeing all of these beautiful Black people in their glorious homeland on the big screen won't positively affect us and our youth. This is HUGE. . . Lastly, (this will be a shocker ) there are some people who are Black AND love comics!! 😱 I know. . . So while you may have a side-eye for folks giving their coins to Marvel or bandwagon fans going the extra mile, think about the long term benefits this could have for our people GLOBALLY. Don't be a hater. This is good for us. ✊🏾✊🏿✊🏾
New t-shirt/merch! For us at NSBM, the fictional metropolis of Wakanda, featured in the Marvel film The Black Panther, represents a place of opportunity, hope, and possibility. We are not who they say we are. We are no longer the lost ones. We refuse to believe the lies. We have the collective resources to take back our power. And if you give us a minute, we most certainly will. . .

Hii👋🏾 Family❣️ I really cannot get over this movie!! ::::::::::::::::::::::::❤️🖤💚 The significance of this movie being seen by every child especially of color is uncompromising. The accuracy of our history and culture details throughout this movie is a must learn for all generations. ::::::::::: I'm actually excited for Halloween this year bc I suspect black panther will be the most costume worn and sold!
Over the past weekend I have seen my social media flooded with beautiful people of color attending #blackpanther and expressing their happiness. I havent seen the film yet because im sick but it has been uplifting for me to see so many beautiful happy people of color out. However, in addition to seeing this I have also seen quite a number of poc criticizing and shaming poc for seeing the film saying things to the effect of poc need to show up for social justice issues the way they show up for this film. . . Day in and day out I go on social media and am pummeled with all the ways Im unsafe, seen as subhuman and unworthy. When I speak up about issues of oppression Im often met with hate, threats and told I am the cause of the problem for speaking up. Truth is, everyday I leave my home to go to work or run errands or walk my dog Im afraid I will not return home. Im fearful that some empowered ignorant bigot will see me and assault me, shoot me, attack me because I live in the body I live in. This is MY reality. It takes everything in me to BE; to just go about my life. This is #oppression This is #dominanceculture Its meant to keep us here; low, afraid, hopeless, depressed, stifled. Our oppression being our only narrative. This is draining and leads to sickness in many forms. . . So for me, whenever I see poc in their joy, in their creativity, in love, inspired, in beauty... its #medicine to me. Its helps to counter the endless oppressive messages, images and actions that surround us daily and have since the theft of this land and my ancestors into enslavement, the genocide of this nations peoples, the “founding” of this country and its rigged systems that govern it. . . Why can’t we hold each other up as poc? Why cant we allow our truths of oppression to sit alongside our joy at the center? Shit, why cant we allow our joy to be at the center? For at least a fucking weekend? Why don’t we see that our joy IS political? Our joy is revolutionary. It pains me more than the dominance culture itself. We are more than our oppression. We are more than our vote. We are more than our vigils and rallies and protests. Or else what do we fight for? #wearemorethanouroppression
BLACK JOY MATTERS ❤️💛💚 Via @theslumflower Also remember that your joy is not dependent on anyone else’s participation...in other words enjoy your one life and sod what anyone else thinks ☺️😉 Marvel is a comic book/ movie company so naturally it’s scope will be limited, despite that this movie is ground breaking and revolutionary on so many levels. Let people enjoy it. #black #joy #blackjoy #blackjoymatters #blackrepresentationmatters #representationmatters #blackexcellence #blackkings #blackqueens #blackleaders #blackfreedomfighters #blackstrength #blackculture #blacktraditions #blackArt #blackTech #afrotech #afrofuturism #africanculture #blackhistory #wakanda #africa #blackpanther
