Black History for White People

Checked
47 minutes 46 seconds ago
Our goal is simple—educate white people on Black history.

The highest calling of humanity is to love. Whether you know it or not, the racial disparities in our country hurt us. They train us to protect our advantages rather than love others, and that mentality reduces us.

New episodes will be released on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of each month.

"I Won't Shut Up" with Ally Henny

8 months 1 week ago

About Ally: Ally Henny is the author of I Won’t Shut Up: Finding Your Voice When the World Tries to Silence You. She is a writer, speaker, advocate-minister, and vice president of The Witness: A Black Christian Collective–an organization committed to encouraging, engaging, and empowering Black Christians toward liberation from racism. Ally completed her Master of Divinity from Fuller Seminary with an emphasis in race, cultural identity, and reconciliation, and she hopes to lead a church someday. Since 2014, Ally has been leading conversations about race on her blog, The Armchair Commentary, and on social media where her posts reach millions each month. She is a proud Chicago Southsider.

About the Book: Being Black in a society developed by white men to benefit white men means constantly pushing back against systems that were not constructed for your flourishing. White privilege. White cultural norms. White beauty standards. White noise. You’re made to feel that your life doesn’t matter, your opinions aren’t valid, and your entire existence is too loud. It can feel like the whole world is telling you to shut up. To these forces, Ally Henny is here to say, “No. I am a loud Black woman, and I won’t shut up.” Ally knows what it’s like to navigate racism and racialized sexism, having spent most of her life in predominantly white spaces. She’s not taking it anymore, and she’s calling you to join her in resisting racism by speaking the truth–no matter the cost. In this compelling book, Ally tells her own story of finding her voice, pushing back against oppression, and embracing her unique perspective as a loud Black woman. And she invites you to find your voice in a world that tries to silence you.

Victory. Stand! Raising My Fist for Justice with Derrick Barnes

11 months 3 weeks ago

On October 16, 1968, during the medal ceremony at the Mexico City Olympics, Tommie Smith, the gold medal winner in the 200-meter sprint, and John Carlos, the bronze medal winner, stood on the podium in black socks and raised their black-gloved fists to protest racial injustice inflicted upon African Americans. Both men were forced to leave the Olympics, received death threats, and faced ostracism and continuing economic hardships.

In his first-ever memoir for young readers, Tommie Smith looks back on his childhood growing up in rural Texas through to his stellar athletic career, culminating in his historic victory and Olympic podium protest. Victory. Stand! paints a stirring portrait of an iconic moment in Olympic history that still resonates today.

Medgar Evers - Part 2

1 year ago

This is a continuation of last week’s episode on Medgar Evers and part two dives into his work with the NAACP. In 1954, Medgar became the field secretary for the state of Mississippi for the NAACP and was incredibly active and energetic, still having the same energy he had in college. He was involved with the Biloxi wade-in, labor organizing, and getting unions involved in the civil rights struggle. His biographer, Michael Vincent Williams, said his reach encompassed every facet of the civil rights struggle and his presence was felt in voter registration drives, economic boycotts, sit-ins, investigative reporting, and other direct action tactics. He also helped to organize a boycott of the bus system to challenge segregation laws. The boycott was a success, and in 1965 the US Supreme Court declared segregation on buses was unconstitutional. He also sought to register black people to vote, lamenting how the law was used to prevent this. In Jones County, Mississippi, the number of registered black voters went from 1300 to 65. These measures were used by white people to hurt Black people, but also poor people in general. He recognized the systemic oppression of African Americans across the country and the continued threat of violence they faced. It is further noted that Evers played an important role in the Emmett Till investigation, convincing Mamie to have an open casket funeral, which was a pivotal moment that changed the trajectory of history. The conversation serves to illustrate the bravery and commitment of Evers to the cause of civil rights, despite the fear and danger that he faced.

The Stereotype Project

1 year 3 months ago

For many, images in the media are a primary point of reference for the various characteristics people belonging to other social groups and cultures may possess. Additionally, these images often serve as the most contact individuals may have with people from different social and cultural groups.

The Stereotype Project Foundation seeks to deconstruct the way we learn about people and cultures while highlighting the gaps and illuminating limited and biased representations of social groups in the media.

It will study the images of cultural and social groups disseminated in the media; investigate how these images become norm; and then create opportunities for persons within those cultural and social groups to challenge, correct and add to the mainstream understanding of the group.

Finding My Voice with Emerald Garner

1 year 4 months ago

Emerald Garner wrote this memoir to honor her father, Eric Garner, as she feels that many people forget about the family and how it feels to grieve after experiencing trauma. She has been leading the voice for change ever since the wake of her father’s death. Her powerful and vulnerable essays call for both the transformation of the justice system and police force, as well as accountability for those in power.

One of her achievements includes getting the Eric Garner Anti-Chokehold Act approved. On June 8, 2020, both houses of the New York State Assembly passed this act. It criminalizes the use of chokeholds, or aggravated strangulation, of any kind by police officers in the state of New York. The act “would occur when a police officer or peace officer obstructs breathing or blood circulation by using a chokehold or similar restraint, thereby causing physical injury or death to another person." This would be a class C felony, punishable by up to 15 years in prison.
