#Repost @ilyasahshabazz👍👌👏 People often ask what it's like to be a daughter of #MalcolmX and #DrBettyShabazz? I was raised with an over abundance of love and encouragement. I was raised #Proud to be of African ancestry, #Proud to be a woman, and #Proud to be a Muslim. That #SelfLove is paramount. Before you can love anyone else, you must first love yourself. And that each of us is an extension of one another bonded under the fatherhood of God. My father said, "Teach them while they're young. Knowledge of self is crucial which begins at home." After my father was gunned down, my mother kept our father's presence alive in our household. She said, "It is important to me that my girls understand who their father was as a husband, a father, and as a man; that our six babies are equipped to navigate through systemic challenges." The examples of trust, selflessness, compassion and care my parents set in and outside of our household helped me to understand that Life is not a destination, it's a journey. Faith in God makes everything possible. In order to succeed in life, you must first believe that you can. Teaching about truth & justice lives on forever. #WHM #SultrySunday #HusbandAndWife #TrueLove #TeamParenting #Fatherhood #Motherhood #LifeIsAJourney #LovingOurSelvesLovingOurYouth #RitesOfPassage #PreparingANewGeneration #TakingResponsibilityForRaisingHealthyChildren #LikeParentsLikeChildren #RaisingANation #SelfLoveIsParamount #TruthAndJustice #IlyasahShabazz #TheWakeUpTour
We Shall.Overcome In America's early history, it is believe a version of these words were included in folk songs sung by Slaves as they worked on plantation fields. Later unionized Laborers would sing their own version during labor protests. Ultimately, We Shall Overcome became the anthem of the Civil Rights Movement. These words not only reflect the rich cultural tapestry of America, but encapsulate the country's contentious history and hopeful future of a more perfect union." In post 2016 elections America, we (a small group of Diverse New Yorkers) once again invoke the anthem, We Shall Overcome as a statement of Solidarity, Despite the Hostile rhetoric and Threat to American values the 45th presidential administration represents, we know the country belongs to all of us. We, a Nation of Immigrants, Dreamers, Lovers, Feminists, Justice seekers, religious pluralist, Shall Overcome.
#Repost @giannie_couji ・・・ Immediately after the election Trump transition spokesman Jason Miller explain the Melania would be staying in NY because there was "obviously a sensitivity to pulling a 10-year-old in the middle of the school year" We have since learned that the cost of security for Mrs T and Barron to remain at the Trump tower is $183 million/year. There is also no indication that they will actually move to DC this summer. So in essence the Federal goverment is giving Trump family $183 million annual voucher so Barron can attend the elite private prep school of his choice. Meanwhile, we learned last night that Trump budget would completely eliminate funding for the National Endowment for the Arts. The NEA , with an annual budget of only $148 million, is able to to provide seed money for arts programming in literally every Congressional district in the country. So, on the one hand you have a $183 million school voucher for a Single 10-year-old at an elite private school. On the other hand you have a program that impacts art and cultural programming throughout the entire nation. #TheFuckeryisReal #Resist #StayWoke Please share
