Today concludes Black History Month & simultaneously my Black Excellence Spotlight posts. It’s been fun sharing Black icons, inspirations & stories of people you’ve known, may not have known & knew somewhat about. The Black experience spans families, neighborhoods, countries & continents but at the same time it is an endearing experience as we see very common themes & traditions across all walks of life. Wether you’re from Africa, the African Diaspora or somewhere else our skin makes us kin. . I wanted to conclude with the Black Lives Matter Movement for so many reasons. I love that it was started by Black Women, I love that it’s tactics mirror the strategy of leaders & a movement so great that it’s considered “The Civil Rights Movement”, I love that the movement is inclusive of ALL kinds of Black people, I love that the “controversy” surrounding the movement is simply fear from others (similar to what the great Black Power Movement & BBP faced ) and I love that the movement started right here in the USA the country my ancestors built. . Black History Month showcases American History. Black history is World History. Just because the month ends doesn’t mean I’m no longer Black, proud, or conscious but the month has & always will be the catalyst for understanding & education for Black folks and others. Let us not forget, Black Excellence is around us all day, everyday. By studying our history we will know where we’re going & from where we’ve come. #blackexcellencespotlight #Day28 #blackhistorymonth #blacklivesmatter #✊🏿 #AmericanHistory

Martin Robinson Delaney 5/6/1812 - 1/24/1885 Abolitionist/Veteran/Doctor/Author/Scholar Few humans on this Earth have been as accomplished, driven, impactful & important as Martin R. Delaney especially to Black people. Martin was born free in the North in Charles Town, WV & raised in Pittsburgh, PA. He was trained as a physician and weathered a deadly cholera epidemic that caused thousands to flee the city so he could treat patients for years. He was 1 of the 3 first Blacks admitted into Harvard Medical School before White protests forced his dismissal. Thereafter, he traveled to the South to observe first hand the horrors of slavery. This ignited an abolitionist revolutionary spirit in Delaney and started his own Newspaper, The Mystery, where he would champion Black Nationalism & Civil Rights causes. Eventually, he would join Frederick Douglas to help publish the anti-slavery newspaper, The North Star. His vision for us was repatriation to West Africa & he would go on to visit Liberia 🇱🇷, Nigeria🇳🇬 & C. America. He moved to Canada until the Civil War pulled him back home. Delaney served in the Union Army and recruited Black soldiers. He was promoted to Major & became the 1st Black field grade officer in the U.S. Army. After the war he’d be appointed a trial judge in SC. He continued to practice medicine & publish Pro-Black work until he died of tuberculosis in Wilberforce, OH. #BlackExcellenceSpotlight #martindelany #blackhistorymonth #Day1 #blackphysicians #blackjudges #blackveterans #CivilRights #Abolitionist #Harvard #WestVirginia #Wilberforce #Pittsburgh #blackauthor #editor

I couldn't leave Japan without taking a picture next to the statue of the legendary Akita, Hachikō! Hachikō’s statue is located near Shibuya crossing, the busiest pedestrian crossing in the world. If you aren’t familiar with the story, I implore you to learn about the faithful dog. #hachiko #Japan #shibuya #Akita #Dog #MansBestFriend #RQQ #blackmantravels #2018 #Tokyo #ΚChapter

#Mom "She had my back, supported me. This is the role of the mother, and in that visit I really saw clearly, and for the first time, why a mother is really important. Not just because she feeds and also loves and cuddles and even mollycoddles a child, but because in an interesting and maybe an eerie and unworldly way, she stands in the gap. She stands between the unknown and the known. In Stockholm, my mother shed her protective love down around me and without knowing why people sensed that I had value." ~ Maya Angelou #BlackHIStory #Day1 #BlackHistoryMonth #WeAreBlackHistory

Today I visited Room 306 @ the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, TN. This is the place where Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated by White Supremacist, James Earl Ray on April 4th, 1968. It was eye opening to recall how recent his assassination was. I am also hopeful that we will continue to champion Dr. King's mission for justice & equality. # #NeverForget #BlackExcellence #Hero #CivilRights #BlackPower

Of all the videos & pics I took, somehow, those videos never saved to my phone. Maybe that's a sign that you all should see it for yourself. I teared up, I got angry, I thought about my ancestors, I sympathized with the Arawak people. This is one of the few pictures that did save from that visit. #NeverForget #TransAtlanticSlaveTrade #RedLivesMatter #BlackLivesMatter #NeverForget #curaçao #Vacation #CaribbeanHistory #Roots #NEVEREVERFORGET

For the past 5 days Quessa and I vacationed in the ABC islands (Curaçao & Aruba specifically ) and it was perfect timing, especially considering the racial tension & deaths that were occurring here at home. We LOVED Curaçao and I know it was only God's timing that had us there. #curaçao #blacktravelers #netherlandantilles #Vacation
