• hbd, Rosa Parks • In celebration of Rosa Parks' Birthday, she's my #wcw. It's amazing that most of us are taught as children that the day she sat down on the bus, she was "tired." Tired? Tired of racism, of Jim Crow, of incivility, of injustice, yes, but physically tired? Nah. Rosa Parks was a certified NAACP activist who made a conscience decision. • "The only tired I was, was tired of giving in." ~ Rosa Parks #PinkPolitico #Resist #ShePersisted #BlackHistory
• libraries are for lovers • For many of us, our understanding, even acknowledgment of Black History started with slavery (bad) and ended with the Civil Rights Movement (good). But heads up, Black History started long before and will continue to shape our story... here's how and why I'm reading Black authors to celebrate #BlackHistory! #ResistanceReading #PinkPolitico
