[In 1972, L-R my Mom, Betty Shabazz, Jesse Jackson, Tom Todd, Aretha Franklin, receiving an award at PUSH (People United to Save Humanity)]—Bishop Charles H. Ellis, III hosted a Home Going Celebration at Greater Grace Temple truly fit for a Queen. We heard from distinguished speakers how Ms. Aretha Franklin played a significant role in the shaping of “Black” identity through her music and works in the Civil Rights Movement. Her collection of songs embraced racial and gender freedoms; and put in the forefront oppressive issues women and “black” women in particular confront. Her mastery of gospel music and “the Blues” located the taproot of our souls. She fought against racism, and her songs were anthems for Movements as she utilized her platform and personal funds to raise our moral and political consciousness. #ArethaFranklin #QueenOfSoul #RIP #RestInPower

My father devoted his entire self to resolving issues of false superiority and subsequent human rights violations of innocent people. He denounced war and injustice as indefensible devastations of human and environmental resources, and he traveled the world meeting with distinguished leaders and Heads of State in Africa and the so-called “Middle East” in search of solutions. He was received outside of America as a world leader. In a famous interview he said, “The problem of the Black and Brown people in America is inseparable from the problem of oppressed people worldwide. Until the leaders of Black America realize that our problem is inseparable from the entire international problem, we will be considered a #minority; we will be considered an #underdog. And we will continue to ask for the things we should have had when we were born (which are human rights ordained by God—not by man).” #MalcolmX

One week later she witnessed the political assassination of her husband Malcolm X. And while this was quite traumatic, she refused to be reduced by it. She remained committed to her values, her faith, social justice issues, and she was extraordinarily loving—not just for her family’s sake but for future generations to realize their full potential. It’s no wonder that Malcolm chose this woman to be his wife, and that she is still an inspiration to many. It’s a man’s world but it is nothing without a woman or a girl. #BettyShabazz #DrBettyShabazz #KhalilGibran #MalcolmX #DST #BettyShabazzDeltaAcademy #GenerationZ #BettyBeforeX

School just ended, and I’m feeling some kind of way about these students. When we first met, we shared our historical selves with each other and launched together on this journey to make sense out of past injustices in our efforts to reconcile our divisions and to reinvent ourselves as a powerful Oneness... I’ve watched young impressionable minds thrive with a new understanding of themselves and a new understanding of the significant contributions of Black and Brown people who continue to forge us into a diverse nation of inclusion. I am super proud of you!!! Sharing with you what one of my fave professors shared with me. "Go forth and shine your Light in all the dark places!” Hopefully I will be there with you, forever! #ANT330 #JohnJayCollegeOfCriminalJustice #Spring2018 #Class2018 #Naething #Hackley #ilyasahShabazz #TheWakeUpTour
