As an organization that works daily to heal the trauma of children, as in this experience, it’s often the adults that need the most intervention. Repost from @sheilaedrummer
We can no longer ignore our #americanhistory. At 6 years old Ruby Bridges walked with bravery and courage of the level most may never know. #blacklivesmatter #america #usa Reposting • @valhuntbeauty Meet Ruby Bridges, at 6 years old, she was the first Black child to attend an all-White elementary school in the south.
For her to attend school her first day, men with guns had to make way through a crowd of grown men and women screaming “nigger”, threatening her life and waving confederate flags.
Nearly all the teachers abandoned the school except for one. In her classroom, all her classmates abandoned the class refusing to sit with the 6 yr old.
For the entire school year, Ruby went to school to a classroom that was just her and the one teacher that didn't refuse her.
She refused to eat any food that wasn’t pre-packaged and sealed because White protestors frequently threatened to poison her like a rat.
Ruby is only 65 years old today, younger than most of your parents. If you think America doesn’t have dramatic and urgent work to do on racial equity, you still have blinders on. #blackhistory #RubyBridges #staywoke #wakeup ... See MoreSee Less

Move on over Amazon!
We Buy Black, the largest online marketplace to find Black owned businesses, just announced that they are now offering distribution of products as well, according to their site.
The new product fulfillment operations seek to help Black entrepreneurs get their products directly into the hands of consumers, without the hassle of having to pitch to retailers for placement in stores or wait to be featured on non-black online markets. The owners of @webuyblack see distribution as the logical next step in true economic independence.
“To date, the ‘holy grail’ for Black entrepreneurs has been getting their products on the shelves of a major retailer or featured on Amazon. In either scenario, the competition is fierce and there simply isn’t room for everyone at the table. Further, big box stores and Amazon, frankly, end up taking most of the money. Without distribution, it’s simply not possible to grow and scale a business. Without the ownership of distribution channels, Black entrepreneurs are left to the whimsical mercy of others,” the company said in a statement.
The first offering under the new distribution operations is a “Big Black Bag,” valued at $25, $50, or $100. Consumers can purchase one of these bags, filled with handpicked items from Black owned companies that run the gamut, from health and beauty products to games and clothing. With each purchase, you will receive a FREE WeBuyBlack t-shirt.
“We Buy Black is primed to give Black entrepreneurs a much needed boost and pipeline, directly to consumers. Distribution changes everything and shifts control back to our community. While many are calling for major retailers to ‘give’ shelf space to Black owned businesses, controlling distribution is tantamount to building our own shelf, kitchen, and dining room. When others control the distribution, you have to depend on their favor. When you control the distribution, however, you can’t be shut down or — visit #becauseofthemwecan for more! ...
