#Sudan was once known as #Nubia or the #Kushite empire, in ancient times, and these Black #Africans ruled the ancient world interchangeably with #Kemet , including pharaohs from both regions (Kemet is now called by the Greek name [a]Egypt[os]). Their descendants still exist (like me), but after Arabs came on the scene into #Africa , bringing their religion Islam (around 635 A.D.), the #Sudanese began to shift from their original spiritual beliefs and indigenous culture and began to take on a cultural identity as "Arab", although ethnically still very much African (even with intermixing with the Arabs who eventually took over most of North Africa, and a now Arabian #Egypt taking control of Sudan from 1820-1874). . With the "help" of British colonization, (from 1899-1956 and known as Anglo-Egyptian Sudan) they fell for the ol' #divideandconquer tactic (look up #theBerlinConference of 1884-85) so that tribalism and colorism (like a caste system, just like the British accomplished in India) regressively became a thing as the more well-to-do Sudanese denied their African identity in place of the "superior" Arab one, and their central government waged civil war (especially in Darfur and the South) to ethnically cleanse and convert all of Sudan into a fully Islamic state. This makes sense as I remember my father, in my early youth, looking down on darker-skinned Sudanese, especially those in the West and South of Sudan, before the eventual secession of the South in 2011. . This is not to knock those who are Muslim, or Islam in general, but when a government uses religious imperialism to exert control over its citizens (and Christianity in Africa is not exempt from this) then you can see the fallacy and irony of Sudan's membership with the Arab League as it only benefitted the tyrannical rulers of Sudan and never the people. Even when Sudan gained its "independence" on January 1st, 1956, from the British...it was ACTUALLY the British who promoted the idea of the Arab League in 1942 before it became official 3 years later. Sudan actually joined the league TWO WEEKS after their independence day! πŸ€” . So with "friends" like these, who needs enemies??

Listen, I have to eat every 3 hour. I don’t care if I’m in the subway, in a meeting or in or at the hospital while my wife is delivering our baby (wait, I don’t have a wife but you get my point).

@realdonaldtrump This dude is a clown & anybody who says immigrants should stay in their country are fuckin idiots & Ignorant to truth. America was created by the Indigenous, Africans, Lemurians, and Atlanteans. To be β€œHuman” is to be a person of β€œColor”. β€œHue-Man”. Europeans changed everything but their time is UP!!! Everyone is awakening all throughout the world and remembering where & WHO WE ARE!! Don’t let religions fool you. The bible, torah, and quran are ALL just β€œSun-Books & books of RA” & stolen information of who we REALLY are. The true history of our people has been changed, manipulated, and demonized for years. The truth is revealing & WE are awakening into 5th dimensional consciousnesses. #Originalpeople #Lemuria #Atlantis #Lemurians #Atlanteans #IndigenousHumans #Huemans #Africans #Truth #FuckDonaldTrump #Mexico #UnitedStates #TheyFearUs #StolenHistory

#Repost @magicandmelanin β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ happy #Juneteenth Kings & Queens (also known as #FreedomDay ) ✊🏾 it’s been 154 years since enslavement was abolished in the state of Texas, marking the "end of enslavement" in the then Confederate States of America. But as many of us know, just because they declared enslaved Africans as free does not mean they really were free... enslavement has evolved and still exists to this day, especially in more covert ways such as the prison industrial complex. Juneteenth serves as a reminder of the ongoing battle for spiritual, economic, physical and psychological liberation. grateful for our ancestors who have fought for us to live in a free world. we are committed to doing our part so that our descendants know what it feels like to be fully emancipated πŸ™πŸΎ . . join our twitter chat tonight at 7pm EST as we discuss #TheYearOfReturn , Juneteenth, and our connection to the Motherland 🌍 twitter.com/magicandmelanin πŸ‘‘ . . #diaspora #blackness #emancipation #blackhistory #roots #freedom #blackliberation #knowyourself #americanhistory #africans #africanamericans #blacklivesmatter #decolonize #themarathoncontinues

Someone once told me that slavery was never abolished. But that it was polished. Polished or not my ancestors Overcame a non-polished lifestyle. If they were living today, they would expect more from me. More then me working at a job that I hate. Just to pay bills and die. I’m not a slave to the polished and polished. I’m free to live as I please. #juneteenth #freedom #wildest -dreams #notaslave #ancestors #brokenchains #polished #black #wakandaforever #blm #zambia #africans #livelife #yolo #blackandproud #blackandbeautiful #blackandfree #nolongeraslave #culture #africa #america #usa #celebrate

They were ripped from their homes and enslaved to a country that forced them to fight time and time again to be freed and treated as humans, deserving of dignity and respect. Never forget the lives that were lost before and after emancipation was granted. Never forget the lives that are still being taken today.

I'm trying to write this poem to you about me but I find it selfish because my life isn't just about me. Just read as I include you in this short story. I was born in Jamaica but my genetic makeup originates from Africa. It's funny how Africa lives in me the same way it lives in you, I think that's cool. To me it means I can feel what you feel, empaths are real. I'm just here wondering why you aren't here with me. We could be thinking for free, reading books that teaches, eating fruits that cleanse the system and exercising to African beats so our stress levels can decrease. I really hope you're reading this. Writing poetry is my remedy, I wrote this to African melody. Something I usually do when I feel empty. Sometimes I get lonely but when you're around me I can feel your cosmic energy🌱 #BlackisBeautiful #teammelanin #melanin #spiritualbeings #africans #poetry #wordsofwisdom #blackisgold #africa #healthychoices #beautifulwords #blackwomen #poem #consciousness #natural #blackvegan #problack #blackconsciousness #handsome #blackmen #blackwomen #takecareofyourself #eatplants #writer #blackman #beautiful #spirituality #spiritual

Children usually start out with simple knobbed puzzles that are outlines of simple shapes that fit into corresponding board cutouts. From there they go to more complex silhouettes of real world objects that take more consideration. The last step that people take with puzzles is usually to jigsaw puzzles of varying complexity. The user is guided by an image they assemble and every time you end up with the same result.Β Β There are 9 benefits of puzzles for your child as they grow, these are: Hand-Eye Coordination Gross Motor Skills Fine Motor Skills Understanding the surrounding world Shape recognition Memory Problem solving Setting goals Patience While you are here stop by one of the shops below and pickup a puzzle as well as other carefully curated products. @zenubian @newbeaconbooks @diversegifts @hubandculture @thisisbooklove_ @pempamsie101 @monero_kids_boutique @kidsswagco @ashaybythebay @mybookbasket @noordinarybookshop @blackhistorystudies @bobexpo_ @theshopaccra @eppbookservices @adesua.store @adinkradesigns @likemeforme_ldn @a.c.e_hackney @mybookbasket @diversityisus @tebalou #theyearofreturn2019 #yearofreturn Β  #blackgirls #melanin #buyblackeconomics Β  #africans #buyblack365 #blackgirlstraveltoo #blackgirlsrun #africanwildlife #buyblackchallenge #blackgirlsmagic #melaninmagic #africanbraids #blackgirlstravel #africanart #melaninonfleek #melaninqueen #buyblackowned #buyblack #african #melaningoddess #blackgirlsrock #melaninpoppin #africanwedding #buyblackart

For the Himba tribe, hair indicates one’s age, life stage, and marital status. Tribe members use a mixture of ground ochre, goat hair, and butter to create their dreadlocks. They also include hair extensions when weaving their dreadlocks. Teenage girls wear braid strands or dreadlocked hair that hangs over their faces. Doing this symbolizes that they’ve entered into puberty. Married women and new mothers wear Erembe headdresses made from animal skin. Young women who are ready for marriage tie their dreadlocks to reveal their faces. #livtobe_namibia | #livtobe_people
