#BeautifulAfrica  Rep. Adam Clayton Powell, elected to represent Harlem, in NYC, on this date in 1944!
 
On this date August 1st in the year 1944 Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Was elected to Congress in the Democratic party, representing the 22nd Congressional district (which included Harlem) and was the first Black Congressman from the state of New York. He did not try to ease his way in quietly and instead directly addressed issues that affected his constituents. With Jim Crow being the law of the land in the south and almost all of the southern Congressmen being segregationists, there had been no one willing to stand on the House floor and raise issues that affected Blacks throughout the nation. Powell would be the man to do so.

#BeautifulAfrica  Tia Oso took the stage, demanded a mic to focus attention of progressive leaders on the death of Sandra Bland and other black women killed in police custody. http://goo.gl/8cKCr6

White progressives are still very, very slow to recognize the that many parts of the Progressive coalition aren't going to quietly tolerate white racism. Anywhere. Period.

Tia Oso is National Organizer for Black Alliance for Just Immigration (BAJI), a racial justice and migrant rights organization. A dynamic social justice leader, Ms. Oso has organized campaigns such as "Not in Our State" and "PHX For Trayvon" mobilizing thousands of advocates for various issues in the public interest. An experienced Community Engagement professional specializing in Social Change initiatives, Ms. Oso is a firm believer in the ability of everyday people to become change-makers for social and economic justice in their communities.

"On July 29, 1910, citizens in the small, predominately African American town of Slocum, Texas were massacred. This was one of many towns, such as Rosewood and Tulsa, where a successful, self-sufficient African American community was the subject of a terrorist attack designed to maintain economic white supremacy. In each town, the incident that sparked the attack was relatively insignificant and often fabricated. The death toll was comparable if not higher than in the Rosewood massacre and the Tulsa race riot (massacre), but few have heard of Slocum. A new book, The 1910 Slocum Massacre: An Act of Genocide in East Texas is an invaluable resource on this history. Continue reading here: http://zinnedproject.org/2014/07/slocum-massacre/ Also read, “Convenient Amnesia in Texas—The Slocum Massacre”: http://bit.ly/1o4oFQA A Texas school principal who is a descendant of the Slocum Massacre has asked the Zinn Education Project to help shine a light on this seldom told history. Teach about this practice in history with the lesson “Burned Out of Homes and History” by Rethinking Schools author Linda Christensen: http://bit.ly/1fDOUvG"

Going on vacation knocked me off my routine and schedule. But, alas, this morning I was able to get started back with my daily routine of 4 miles.

Felt great! Summer has finally arrived in Chicago!

The store was very well organized, though small. The range of items was as complete as any other store, however. The store clerks were very friendly and helpful, and the store, itself, was very clean inside. Paid street parking is available; this location is quite easily accessible by public transportation. There are very lovely street lamps and lights in this Chicago neighborhood of Beverly Hills.

A very upbeat and encouraging, featuring house music from Chicago and some classic, dance R&B hits. And eclectic but very interesting range of items are for sale: beautiful, hand-made jewelry to the latest in fashion and designer tees. Street parking is quite challenging, but is available. Located in the veritable heart of Hyde Park, this is an amazing and interesting store: highly recommend.

This place offers hand-crafted and designed, crispy fried donuts with the most unique and interesting topping and filling combinations. It also has an amazing and large sitting area to enjoy A great cup of coffee, also served here. Looking out upon the hustle-and-bustle of downtown Chicago, you can enjoy an elegant culinary moment of respite here, all while eating a doughnut!

As usual, this is a typically outstanding fast-food with great customer service and a wonderful fried chicken sandwich! The service is excellent here. The staff were quick, even though they apologized for 'the delay'. The store was quite clean, despite the many children running back and forth to the play area dropping napkins in the way chickens drop feathers! Easily accessible and close to lots of shopping and the interstate.

Horrible experience. If I could give it a -1 star, I would. The owners have an entitled attitude and can't be more rude to their customers. If you are looking for a terrible time with some overpriced coffee and stale pastries, then this might be your place. Very highly not recommended.

This restaurant has an interesting take on 'southern food' which seems to be their proxy title for soul food. Located near the toney neighborhood of Hyde Park, this restaurant employs artistic license and reference to the southern church in its decor. Prices may be just a tad bit pricey for Cincinnati, but nothing which will cause you to take out a loan. The service was friendly. Though, as a connoisseur of great 'soul food', I did notice an unusually consistent cultural composite in the kitchen. Wink. I prefer quite a bit more seasoning and flavor. But, I still recommend this establishment. Give it a try!

Friendly staff and great prices are a staple at this chain; we found the same here at this store. We did purchase gasoline, here. The parking lot was a tad bit confusing for a first-time user; it seems as if we came in the 'back way', as we were told. Still, it was well laid-out lot and store with plenty of space for crowds. Recommended.
