Black Sports Highlights & Pro Contributions

76% of players for the National Basketball Association (NBA), and 68% of the National Football League (NFL) are Black. James "Jesse" Owens won 4 gold medals in 1936 Olympic Games for USA, and had to come home to racism & hatred.

FUNK-n-Sports: If you don't know what it means, ask somebody with funkinteleky. "It's all good"

Gil Scott H-Heron, also an accomplished musician / author collaborated with Brian Jackson to create hits like "Winter in America" and "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised". Signed by Arista Records. Born in Chicago, Ill. and raised in Jackson,  Tenn.  received a Grammy " Life Time Achievement Award" in 2012 posthumous. He died in 2011.

Poets Corner: Coming Soon The spoken word has always been a tradition in our culture. Information was passed down thru generations in this manner. Unfortunately, and maybe strategically a lot of relevant info was lost due to lack of written documentation. Fortunately there is enough still available for Black folks to understand who we are and what to do to change the conditions for ourselves, children, and grand children amidst the hatred and racism that is still prevalent in the USA, and South America. The exploitation of Africa is another conversation. Some have mastered this art form and have used it in a relevant, constructive manner in an effort to provoke positive change for our people. Gil Scott-Herron is one of those people, and some even call him respectfully "The Godfather" of so called Rap music. In any case he is one of the greatest poets and conscious communicators of all time. Much Love, My Brother! Marcus Garvey says ,"A people without the knowledge of their past history is like a tree without roots". Good analogy

Rihanna is one of the top selling singing artist of all time. Her string of 13 number one singles has tied Michael Jackson. Her live performances pack venues and sell out all over the world . Born Robyn Fenton she's the youngest artist to score 12 #1 singles in US. Rihanna signed with Def Jam at age 16. Net worth $120 million.

Did you know that Don Cornelius's Soul Train, a Black American TV program, is the longest running show in American broadcast syndication history! The first episode was October 2,1971 and final episode March 25, 2006.

Did you know that the Statue of Liberty in New York City was a copy? Yes! The original idea was a Black woman (left) which still exists today in France. The original was offered to the United states but rejected because it was a Black women. The concept was stolen and the powers that be created what you see on the right. The model by Agusta Bartholdi to be adopted by the United States had broken chains at her feet and in her left hand to symbolize the broken chains of slavery. It still exists today at the Musum of the City of New York, Fifth, Ave. & 103rd St. Bartholdi was largely influenced by ancient sculptor Phidias who built gigantic statues. Initiallyl he wanted the statue to be a combination of freedom and "Isis" the Egyptian Queen of Heaven. Do the research!

The Christopher Columbus Myth : Every year North Americans celebrate Columbus Day acknowledging him as the discoverer of the Americas. This is far from the truth. Black people as well as other races or cultures were already here! To misfortune the of many of these peoples he just found out where they were. There is so much proof but the writers of history books etc refuse to change this lie even knowing the truth, so this is still being taught in schools in the United States today. Historians, anthropologist, archeologists, scientist and scholars know this to be true. Many articles and books have been written during the 19th and 20th centuries that document Black people being in the Americas pre Columbus. There are also pyramids, statues and artifacts that exist today that offers more proof. Also ancient skeletons of Black people have been found all over the Americas including California, Mexico and South America. We existed with the tribes of North America and the great peoples of the Aztec and Maya empires. Nicholas Leon, a prominent Mexican Authority recorded the oral traditions of his people said "some of them reported that the oldest inhabitants of Mexico were Black". Other scholars believe that Blacks introduced pyramid and tomb construction, mummifification, writing, calendar, as well as other sciences. Do your homework and stop believing everything you have been told or taught. The truth will set you free. As famed recording artist George Cinton put it, " Free your mind and your ass will follow

Black Wall Street: 600 Businesses, 21 Restaurants, 21 Churches, 2 Movie Theatres, 6 Private Planes, Hospital, Bank, School System, Libraries, Law Offices, and Bus System. Imagine that! In 1921 with racism and discrimination at its peak; Black American men and boys being hung by the neck, and we were still able to build our own cities and do for our selves like we always have before White European intervention. This community was in Tulsa, Oklahoma. As in most cases the haters burned it down, but we always come back bigger and better. They can't kill our spirit! If we did that then, imagine what could be done now if we pool our resources together in the name of uplifting our people

Did you know that two living Popes at the Vatican pray to a Black Madonna and child? They know the truth even though its not publicized. The Roman Catholic Church in Vatican City, Italy (yes they have their own city, laws etc.) is the wealthiest religious organization in the world. They also own more property worldwide than any other establishment in modern society. As you notice on the wall they acknowledge Black Deities (left) Pope prays the prayer of forgiveness and truth in action, but check out who he is praying to. I think they've been working some of those old ancient Black secrets stored up in the Vatican vault to get that wealth. What do you think?

in America was established in my neighborhood. Yeah I'm proud! Hey Chocolate City what's up with all that vanilla there now? Benjamin Bannaker was hired by George Washington to design the nations capital. Of all the White architects he could have hired, but Washington chose him. That alone speaks for itself in terms of the greatness of our people!

A Black Man Designed Washington, D.C. Yes the capital of The United States of America and my hometown. Shout out to my family, friends and LeDroit Park. That's the neighborhood I grew up in. Howad University and the famed Howard Theatre are located there too. Also Dunbar High School, the first Black public high school

The Value of the Black Race: His story (his-tory) versus the real story. Understanding who we are. Black People are so valuable that White Europeans built thousands of ships and traveled thousands of miles to enslave our ancestors. Black People built the civilizations in Africa that Whites hoped to build in America. To this day scientist and engineers can't figure out how we built the pyramids in Egypt & Kush. Our ancestors were highly skilled craftsman, and if you check old slave sale records you'll find we were engineers, carpenters, mechanics, nurses ,brick masons, cooks, seamstresses; just to name a few. Black American slaves built the USA infrastructure including roads, bridges, railways and buildings for free! Blacks were even on loan to build the "Presidents House" or referred to as the "White House" and the Capital. Wall Street was even founded on slavery and Blacks even built the wall that gives it the name. How about lets paint the White House black while President Obama is in office.

Slave Trade: According to the Trans Atlantic Slave Trade Data Dase 12.5 million slaves were shipped to America. Black Americans not only performed such professions as stated above but they grew the food, raised and butchered the animals, cooked the food, and as quiet as its kept even raised some White folks children. All as slaves receiving no financial compensation and treated like animals. Records show that 2 million died on the way. Note: Incredible as these figures are, some say they are grossly under estimated, maybe because the people that kept the records may have left out some millions, if you know what I mean.

Black Americans have bravely served in the military from the beginning. No war has been fought without the participation of Black Americans. We served in War of 1812, Revolutionary War, Civil War, the Spanish American War, the Korean War, the World Wars 1 & 2, the Vietnam War, Gulf War, the War in Iraq, and represented in current international conflicts. Today we are 11.3% of the military while only 14% of the total American population. US Census Bureau. 

Black Americans contributed thousands of inventions to improve society. Maria Van Britton Brown; Home Security System, Wilbert Dyer; Satellite Tracker, Lloyd Douglas Hall: Methods of Processing & Sterilization of Food, Garrett Morgan Traffic Light, Otis Boykin; Control Unit & Wire Resister for Heart Pacemaker. Examples. We are creators w/ a rich heritage. Our Ancestors built the entire railroad system in the southern US. They also Invented equipment for better operations and increased productivity, such as Elijah McCoy's inventions for the lubrication of steam engines. Frederick McKinley Jones invented the Automatic Refrigeration Systems for long haul trucks & rail cars. He is credited with inventing air conditioning and designed a unit specifically for military field hospitals. Mr. Jones was posthumously given the National Medal of Technology in 1991.

Hello. My name is Cassandra Kirk, and it has been my genuine pleasure to serve as our Fulton County, Georgia Chief Magistrate Judge for the past four years. I’m a metro Atlanta native, a Briarcliff High School graduate (Drill Team!), and a Williams College and Washington and Lee Law School graduate. I’m also a proud member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc. and a member of North Avenue Presbyterian Church. I served in private practice before I worked at both the Fulton and Newton DA’s offices, and have worked for both plaintiffs and defendants. I’ve served as a public defender and as a child advocate in the Juvenile Court. I’m proud to have served as a Juvenile Court Judge before I was appointed to the Fulton Magistrate Court. I’m the only candidate in this race to have served as a full-time judge. I live down the street from my mom. I have the world’s best family, and I’m the world’s coolest and most protective aunt. I’ve spent the past 10 years being a vocal opponent of human trafficking, and I’m a child welfare law specialist — the first judge certified as such in Georgia. When I’m not wearing the robe, I’m playing tennis, competing in sprint triathlons or riding a motorcycle. As our Fulton County Chief Magistrate Judge, it’s been my job to be with our family, friends and neighbors in the courtroom on their best and worst days. Judges can’t tell you how they will rule on cases — but I can tell you that working to serve our Fulton families is my distinct honor. As the first person to be appointed Fulton County Chief Magistrate Court Judge, I am always Focused on Fulton Families.
