just ran across a magazine from 1985 that had an interview by E.D. Nixon. I would have never known who he was if I hadn't. I find it heartbreaking that he wasn't even invited to the 25th anniversary of the bus boycott, that he mentioned in the article. Amazing man. #civilrights #history #busboycott

If so, the unfortunate circumstance surrounding your #loss may leave you feeling extremely isolated, alone and suffering. BUT you are not alone. In 2003, I lost one of my youngest sisters to gun violence. My sister was killed 3 weeks after her 19th birthday. It was an incredible blow that my family and I endured. Our community and country must start implementing solutions now to help those grieving and to save lives. #TGIFtips ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Joining us for episode 15 of The Visit™️, "Gun Violence and Lives Shattered…Where do we go from here?", are two very special guests. @tamikadmallory son’s father was fatally shot almost 16 years ago, and this loss led her to become the integral voice for #civilrights. She is a Civil Rights leader, anti-violence advocate, entrepreneur and one of the masterminds behind such historic events: The Women’s March on Washington, Gun Violence Awareness Month Initiative and NYC’s Crisis Management System targeting gun violence prevention. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Had to re-up on my Probate Court Guardian Ad Litem and Attorney Ad Litem certification. A real sweet spot in my career. It allows me to work in the area I ❤️, help people, and get paid. Everyone wins when you can do what you love. Have you found your thing, yet? If not, keep at it. It took me 17 years to get here., but once I did, things started happening for me at warp speed. Don’t give up on your dreams. #TexasLawyer

It was only in 1967 that the #SCOTUS struck down a Virginia law banning interracial marriage. What strikes me about this image is the quote at the bottom from a JUDGE. This type of attitude is still very much reflected on today’s bench and society in general. #StayWoke #BlackHistory #BlackHistory365 #Twitter

swipe⬅️ 50 years ago MLK murdered at Lorraine Motel, 4/4/68...
50 years before that Women’s Suffrage (19th Amendment passes 1920)...
55 years before that, slavery abolished (13th Amendment passes 1865)...
Ending an incredible @sojournproject journey here @ncrmuseum, reflecting on those 150+ years. Some say progress is progress. All that’s been learned & horrors repeated, progress not fast enough. The work of humankind toward #civilrights #socialjustice #equality #humandignity remains far from finished... #whatsgoingon #bethechangeyouwishtosee #mlk50

Nelson Mandela

Writer, President (non-U.S.), Civil Rights Activist (1918-2013)

Nelson Mandela became the first black president of South Africa in 1994, serving until 1999. A symbol of global peacemaking, he won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1993.

Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela (July 18, 1918 to December 5, 2013) was a nonviolence anti-apartheid activist, politician and philanthropist who became South Africa’s first black president from 1994 to 1999. Becoming actively involved in the anti-apartheid movement in his 20s, Mandela joined the African National Congress in 1942. For 20 years, he directed a campaign of peaceful, nonviolent defiance against the South African government and its racist policies. Beginning in 1962, Mandela spent 27 years in prison for political offenses. In 1993, Mandela and South African President F.W. de Klerk were jointly awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for their efforts to dismantle the country's apartheid system. For generations to come, Nelson Mandela will continue to be a source of inspiration for civil rights activistsworldwide.
