EQUAL RIGHTS. On March 7, 1965 civil rights protesters attempted a march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama to draw attention to the voting rights issue.  Alabama state troopers and local police officers stopped them in what would later be known as “Bloody Sunday.” Later that same year, voting barriers faced by African Americans were removed.

17/28: Preaching to the Chickens by Jabari Asim is a story from early life of civil rights activist John Lewis. Charged with tending the many chickens on the family’s farm, John takes advantage of the captive audience to practice his oratory skills. As he tends his responsibilities, he learns valuable life skills, including the importance of speaking up for those who can’t speak for themselves. E.B. Lewis’ illustrations are warm and beautiful— and if you’re planning on adding any real chickens to your family this spring, you should definitely add this one to your list. 🐓 . #blackhistorymonth #blackwomeninhistory #blackexcellence #representationmatters #diversechildrensbooks #kidsbookstagram #kidlit #blackhistorybooks #africanamericanchildrensbooks #picturebooksofinstagram #picturebooks #weneeddiversebooks #civilrights #littleactivists #johnlewis #preacher

I couldn’t let the day pass without recognizing Huey P. Newton’s birthday. I have such a genuine and profound respect for this man, his courage, and the legislative changes he and the Black Panther Party are responsible for. I implore you not to believe the violent fantasy of the Panthers that incomplete(incorrect) Wikipedia posts portray. Read a book. Read his book. The truth is absolutely beautiful.
