The first course will focus on Black Women you may have never heard of whose lives deserve to be remembered because they helped us advance as a community.  It will also cover Black women who did things you may not know about.  Did you know that Harriet Tubman was a Union spy during the Civil War and that she commanded forces?

As we all know, policing is completely out of hand in America as it relates to Black people.  Longstanding abuses have not been addressed and many do not seem to even understand or want to accept the many ways in which policing is altogether awry.  This class will delve into the history of policing, as well as the modern day problems that are so rife on police forces across this country.

Quote of the Week:

December 3, 2017

 

"There is a notion out there that black people enjoy the Sisyphean struggle against racism. In fact, most of us live for the day when we can struggle against anything else.  But having been, by that very racism, pinned into ghettoes, both metaphorical and real, our options for struggle are chosen long before we are born.  And so we struggle out of fear for our children.  We struggle out of fear for ourselves.  We struggle to avoid our feelings, because to actually consider all that was taken, to understand that it was taken systematically, that the taking is essential to American and echoes down through the ages, could make you crazy."

"...she had nothing to fall back on; not maleness, not whiteness, not ladyhood, not anything.  And out of the profound desolation of her reality she may well have invented herself."

"I am a woman -- gorgeously designed, brilliant, charming, mysterious, funny, bewitching, cool, and, most of all, uniquely purposed. I am my own phenomenal being, and I own and govern myself!"
