RT @BmoreDoc: “Let me give you a word of the philosophy of reform… This struggle may be a moral one, or it may be a physical one, and it may be both moral & physical, but it must be a struggle. Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will.“ —Frederick Douglass 1857

RT @NewsHour: “Enslavement reigned for 250 years on these shores. When it ended, this country could’ve extended its hallowed principles — life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness — to all, regardless of color,” writer Ta-Nehisi Coates told Congress. “But America had other principles in mind”

RT @ChaseMadar: “Things can be concentration camps without being Dachau or Auschwitz.” Historian @andreapitzer talks with @esquire about our increasingly nasty immigrant concentration camps and her prognosis is horrifying. These structures need to be razed to the ground.

RT @GovLarryHogan: Harriet Tubman’s countless contributions to our nation transcend race, gender, nationality, & religion. Her acts of heroism, courage, & sacrifice have more than earned her rightful place among our nation’s most pivotal leaders. She deserves this honor.
