Save resources by using great apps like Dropbox!

It's a great way to share resources online for free and access them anywhere. Plus it's a great way to backup your local files daily!

(I get some free GigaBytes when you use that link and install the program on your computer at no cost to you.)

"We were never meant to survive. We were stolen from our families and our land, brought to this country in the bottoms of boats, chained together like animals. We were forced to work for, nurture and nourish, and build a country that never truly considered us human and still refuses to honor our humanity. The founding documents of this country designate us as only three-fifths of a human being. When we dared (and dare) to reclaim our humanity, we were (and are) beaten, lashed, hung from trees, limbs cut off, set on fire, shot and raped. This isn't something that happened in the past. This is still happening to Black people in 2015. In fact, just a few months ago, Otis Byrd was found lynched, hanging from a tree outside of Jackson, Mississippi."
This country has never valued Black people. We cannot consider ourselves safe anywhere.

Let's talk about collective effort and cooperation for collective liberation! | The Lost Art of Cooperation 
Americans are obsessed with competition, but they forget that cooperation and collective effort are the foundation of freedom.

In fact—and not to be rude—but in the history of North American freedom, June 19 is a more significant date than the Fourth of July.
June 19, 1865, marks the day when news of emancipation and the Civil War's end finally reached the last group of slaves in America. It should be treated with the same respect we give Independence Day.
