The United States Declaration of Independence is the pronouncement adopted by the Second Continental Congress meeting at the Pennsylvania State House in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on this day, July 4, in 1776. The Declaration explained why the Thirteen Colonies at war with the Kingdom of Great Britain regarded themselves as thirteen independent sovereign states, no longer under British rule. With the Declaration, these new states took a collective first step toward forming the United States of America. The declaration was signed by representatives from New Hampshire, Massachusetts Bay, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia. The Lee Resolution for independence was passed on July 2 with no opposing votes. John Adams, a leader in pushing for independence, had persuaded the committee to select Thomas Jefferson to compose the original draft of the document, which Congress edited to produce the final version. Adams wrote to his wife Abigail, "The Second Day of July 1776, will be the most memorable Epocha, in the History of America" – although Independence Day is actually celebrated on July 4, the date that the wording of the Declaration of Independence was approved. #history #OTD #OnThisDay #whathappenedtoday #knowyourhistory #todayinhistory #todaymatters #instahistory #ourhistory #ushistory #UShistory #july4th #4thjuly #independenceday #usindependenceday #usindependenceday2020 #usa #USA #colonialism #britishempire #britishcolonies #britishcolonialism #13colonies

7.4.20 “Accountability feels like an attack when you’re not ready to acknowledge how your behavior harms others.” @tamararenaye & 🎨 by @laura_alien_princess I am still as proud as ever to be American, but I acknowledge the immense the work we have ahead to dismantle systems of oppression, whether locally for Black Lives or globally for Human Lives at stake in key conflicts like Israel-Palestine and Kashmir (to name just two ). There has to be enough space in this world to continue to be proud of our country and still practice tolerance for those different than us, even when these values do not promote national interest. The freedom of some does not matter more than others. May my America continue to grow and acknowledge the work it needs to do. #letfreedomringforall #America #tolerance #growth #anotheryearwiser #blacklivesmatter #blm #antiracist #asiansforblacklives #southasiansforblacklives #whitecoats4blacklives #physiciansforblacklives #solidarity #advocacy #whiteprivilegeisreal #antiracism #knowyourhistory #knowthefacts #antiblackness #saytheirnames #southasiansforsocialjustice #southasiansagainstantiblackness #useyourprivilege #checkyourprivilege #southasian #desi #notyourmodelminority #modelminoritymyth #poc #pocsolidarity

When I started researching my graphic novel Toussaint Louverture I concentrated on academic studies of slavery, racism and the Haitian revolution. But as time went on I realised that to get the details that would help bring a sense of reality to my images that fiction was a useful resource. In Island Beneath The Sea you can literally taste the dust and feel the heat, I tried to translate that into the drawn pages as I worked. One of the aspects of creating a historical graphic novel that I did not expect was if you do enough research you can start to piece together that history. So you have a series of events in your story that you are depicting, but knowing that other events were happening concurrently enables you to pull in those events in the background of illustrations, well hopefully I have made it work! Isabel Allendes sweeping story takes us through four decades, culminating in a terrifying exodus of the whites as the revolution smashes it's way through the French colony, it then travels to the chaos of New Orleans. The flight to the US by Haitian refugees is a fascinating part of the larger story of the Haitian revolution - newly impoverished white planters and the few slaves they had managed to force aboard the last ships were generally not welcomed by a very jumpy white America. The panic that the slave revolution in Haiti created in the young United States lead to a crackdown on the few freedoms of slaves in the US. Of course later it lead directly to the Louisiana Purchase and to the expansion westward and the genocide of the native peoples of north America - the reverberations of the revolution in the small island of Saint Domingo were felt world wide, it's a phenomenal story. #nicwatts_illustrator #graphicnovel #nicwatts_bookblog #islandbeniththesea #isabelallende #louisanapurchase #clrjames   #toussaintlouverture   #haiti #hatianrevolution   #adaptation #sneakpreview #knowyourhistory #clrjameslibary #theblackjacobins #cyrilllionelrobertjames #weloveblackscholars

• Dr. Kwame Nkrumah was Ghana’s first President and is the reason we celebrate Ghana’s Independence Day on March 6th every year! • His work was focused entirely on Uniting all of Africa. • Because of this, Nkrumah worked with MLK to integrate Black Americans back with Africans of the Diaspora as well as Malcom X and Marcus Garvey. • Nkrumah worked with many Countries to Unite Africa but was mostly met with resistance by America. • Efforts to stop Nkrumah ranged from Removing finances from his organizations, to black listing him and anything in between. • Much like our other leaders before, Nkrumah was assassinated before he was able to complete his plans of uniting Africa. This is why we must continue his fight, his legacy. Africa Must Unite. - - - - Books by Nkrumah which brought a lot of knowledge to me: ~ Africa Must Unite ~ I Speak Of Freedom ~ Consciencism - - - - - - #kwamenkrumah #malcolmx #marcusgarvey #mlk #martinlutherking #panafrican #panafricanism #africamustunite #africanunity #unity #conscious #knowledge #knowyourhistory #knowledgeispower #blackhistory #africanculture #culture #africanculture #blackhistory

Reposted from @chakabars Let’s talk about it: In May 1975, Redstockings, a radical feminist group, published a report that Steinem and others put together on the Vienna Youth Festival and its attendees for the Independent Research Service. Though she acknowledged having worked for the CIA-financed foundation in the late 1950s and early 1960s in interviews given to The New York Times and The Washington Post in 1967 in the wake of the Ramparts magazine CIA exposures (nearly two years before Steinem attended her first Redstockings or feminist meeting ), Steinem in 1975 denied any continuing involvement. In 2004, however, a 1975 report by Human Events which noted Steinem's CIA ties and which had been classified by the CIA was made public. WHITE FEMINISM IS WHITE SUPREMACY. #knowyourhistory #nowyourenemy #whiteliesmatter #breakingthemyths

The sad reward for ignorance and pathetic allegiance to an orange un-president. • Repost from @agirlhasnopresident • It is July, ppl. Get your shit together and mitigate your damages. Stay home, but if you MUST go out, WEAR A MASK! You shouldn’t need some A-hole sitting in a huge house you give him/her and pay for, to tell you that you need to wear a mask. They are clearly failing us. I know my Gov @govbilllee is COMPLETELY worthless and clearly more interested in sniffing the throne of that orange push pop, than he is the lives of Tennesseeans. And seriously, if you’re taking your cues from Kid Rock, you deserve what you get, because he absolutely cares more about the money he makes in Nashville, than he does about Nashvillians. These numbers aren’t from protesting, or even ppl social distancing while they work. This is from get togethers, parties and straight up selfishness and ignorance. #WearAMask #StopBeingStupid #COVID19 #Coronavirus #Repost @washingtonpost ・・・ Coronavirus infections in the United States surged nearly 50 percent in June as states relaxed quarantine rules and tried to reopen their economies, data compiled Wednesday showed, and several states moved to reimpose restrictions on bars and recreation. More than 800,000 new cases were reported across the country last month, led by Florida, Arizona, Texas and California. States that took an aggressive approach to reopening led the country in infection spikes — along with California, the nation’s most populous state, where leaders have been more cautious. More than 52,000 new cases were reported in the United States on Wednesday, the highest total since the start of the pandemic, according to data collected by The Post. Record-shattering numbers of new cases were reported Wednesday in six states — California, Georgia, Texas, Alaska, North Carolina and Arizona.

Tag someone whom you want to kill with this gun. In 1975 this formerly secret CIA weapon was declassified. The information about this weapon comes from U.S Senate testimony in 1975 relating to rogue activities of the CIA. The heart attack gun shoots a small poison dart that is made of ice. The poison causes a heart attack. Then the dart melts and the poison denatures so there is nothing that shows up in autopsy . #telugumemes #telugumemespages #telugucomedy #heartattackgun #heartattacks #gun #intheknow #knowledge #knowyourhistory #knowlegeispower #cia Do follow @babu_moshayo for more interesting facts .

We need to talk about Auntie. It feels almost poetic that during the week of Juneteenth, Aunt Jemima is finally being set free. Like many, I grew up with her smiling face staring back at me in grocery aisles and in pantries. Unfortunately, I’ve never felt the warmth she was marketed to emit. As a young Black girl interested in cooking, I often let the fear of being compared to her stop me from chasing my food dreams. Even now as a tig-ol-bittied, nearly six-foot tall Black woman chasing these dreams, I still think of her when I reflect on how I take up space in the kitchen. Her departure makes me hopeful that Black women can continue to reclaim their narrative in the food community. I decided to write a piece on my blog about the legacy of Aunt Jemima and how her image strays so far from the truth of Black women’s presence in the kitchen.
