BLACK HEALTH EXECUTIVE'S CURRICULUM TO END MEDICAL APARTHEID TO BE TAUGHT IN HOSPITALS WORLDWIDE

Nationwide -- After viewing the viral video of Black doctor Susan Moore alleging poor and racist treatment from hospital staff before she died of COVID in December 2020, Aubynette Rolle, an internationally-recognized nurse who is also a medical attorney, says now more than ever, there must be a change in the way healthcare is delivered.

“I was heartbroken to see the videos Dr. Moore recorded before her death and she is not the only one who has experienced or has recordings or allegations out there,” said Rolle. “I have read and seen footage so many times about Black women in the USA dying giving birth and their husbands and relatives are left with questions. In the majority of Black nations, it isn’t quite the case as infants and mothers do receive care generally from people who look like them. Regardless of what title you hold, at the end of the day, we are all mortal and we will need medical assistance. I remind my colleagues in healthcare to remember that they can go from being the doctor or nurse to being the patient in an instant and they don’t know who may end up caring for them, especially if they are unable to speak. That is why it is so important for me to continue doing the R.I.C.H. experience training and establish the need for a culture of care across the board.”

DERRICK HILL CREATES NEW COURSE TO HELP NONPROFIT ORGANIZATIONS GET FUNDING

Many nonprofit organizations never reach their full potential due to the lack of funding. As a result, Derrick Hill, CEO of HillChase LLC, offers his newest course that enables nonprofits to rapidly increase their revenue, have maximum impact, and sustainable growth.

Derrick’s clients include but are not limited to Steve & Marjorie Harvey Foundation, Rickey Smiley Foundation, Chef G, Garvin Foundation, Boys & Girls Club, Colon Cancer Foundation, and many others. The same success strategies he delivers to these and other nonprofits are now available in the course: “Grow & Expand Your Nonprofit in 90 Days.”

“At HillChase, our mission is to help nonprofits be as successful as possible so that they can make the biggest difference possible,” explained Hill. “Our firm has over 15 years developing hundreds of nonprofits, including those focused on children and youth, community and economic development, housing, urban education, family engagement, and many other nonprofits structures.

That’s why I wanted to offer our firm’s education and expertise to any nonprofit in need.”

NEW PLAN TO FUND MORE NON-PROFITS AND FOR-PROFITS IN BLACK COMMUNITIES

They are many great non-profits, making great strides in the Black community in the areas of health, education, equal rights, the arts, and many more. However, many of them don’t have the funding to expand and grow their organizations. "This is because they have to rely on the goodness of people and companies to fund their organizations. This is not the best way to fund our organizations, especially when the economy is doing so badly," says Terrance Amen, founder and CEO of 3UFirst.

Terrance says that his company can solve this problem by offering organizations ownership in the company, donations to their organization, and sponsorship of their events. In return, the organizations that agree to the terms simply have to endorse, promote, and support 3UFirst. He comments, "This is a great way to fund our HBCUs and other organizations putting in the work. Too many times our organizations have to go begging for crumbs and having to reach outside our community, in order to keep their doors open."

BLACK WOMAN CEO OF ONLINE K-12 VIRTUAL SCHOOL HELPING OTHER EDUCATORS START THEIR OWN ONLINE SCHOOLS

Dana Delane-Williams, founder and CEO of American High School, is committed to assisting other Black educators in establishing their own online/virtual schools. She recently made history as the first Black woman in the country to create an online virtual school for grades K-12. She holds a bachelor’s degree in Computer Information Systems from Georgia State University and a master’s degree in Business Administration in Aviation from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.

American High School (AHS) is an online distance learning school known for its affordability and accredited college-preparatory education for Grades K-12. AHS offers over 350 online courses including general, honors/AP, gifted, and career & technical (CTE). The CTE courses lead to industry certifications. AHS is an approved NCAA provider for students seeking to play sports in college on scholarships.

“In 2018, we launched the adult high school diploma program for students over the age of 20,” says Dana who has revolutionized online education in the US since 2002. “The global health scare has changed life across many spheres and has affected education processes too. We want to help black educators planning to open schools within their communities by providing them the support they need to achieve their goals.”

Ultimately, Dana wants to empower blacks and other minorities to achieve success in the educational sector as well as to empower today’s youth by providing them with high-quality online education and industry certifications. “Our black and minority kids value learning and education and with online education becoming more acceptable, we can bring technology and 21st-century leaning skills to those who may not have had access in the past.

Legendary Hip Hop Icon Speech Reacts to Capital Insurrection in His New Single "A Different World"

“This song had to be made to become proactive in shaping our collective future, because the rebellion that happened on January 6, 2021 in Washington D.C. was the curtain being pulled back on race, lies and darkness in America,” Speech explains. “It’s obvious that about half of America is living in a fictitious bubble and are responding accordingly. That’s why I wanted to share facts about the lawlessness and hypocrisy that was occurring. We may be at the start of another Civil war and a lot of bloodshed.”

Atlanta, GA -- Like millions of other Americans, Grammy Award-winning artist Speech of the legendary Afro-centric Hip Hop group Arrested Development watched in horror as a swath of die-hard Trump loyalists stormed the U.S. Capitol building in Washington D.C. As the dedicated MC he is, Speech put the pen to paper and spit out the single “A Different World,” an anthemic call-to-action that both preserves his artistic integrity and passion for socio-political issues.

6 Year-old Esi Orijin Starts Line of Black and Brown Dolls To Raise Self Esteem

Rooted in her African culture, prior to starting school, 6-year old Esi Orijin loved everything about herself. To her, being Black was “normal” and feeling included was a way of life. However, Esi struggled with confidence issues within three weeks of starting private school and being the only black girl in her class.

Her mother, Melissa Orijin, was devasted and needed to find a solution after witnessing Esi’s preference for toys change and her self-love take a dip. Esi no longer loved her skin tone or her curly hair.

She wanted only white dolls with straight blonde hair. After struggling to find dolls that truly represented her daughter to show her that she was in fact included, Melissa, together with her daughter, Esi, decided to start Orijin Bees.

COUPLE LAUNCHES BLACK-OWNED 3D ANIMATION AGENCY TO FILL A MULTI-CULTURAL VOID IN THE CONTENT CREATOR WORLD

Meet Brian & Darnitra Jackson, a Black husband and wife team with over 20 years of combined experience in graphic design, marketing, photography, and 3D animation. Their company, Unimation Media, promised to shake things up and 6 months later, the receipts are in.

Previously, with even a passing glance, a person would notice these types of media graphics and ended up being disappointed because there was not a diverse choice of multi-cultural assets. Brian, who is the lead 3D animator at the firm, comments, "Things were always going to change when we launched the Scroll Stopping Dance Pack."

He continues, "Where you will likely always see our competitors doing the same old thing, we wanted to make a point to provide various multi-cultural media that will wow audiences and fill the void with no sacrifice in quality. We do this because we believe these realistic 3D animated assets will help various businesses make more money and engage new customers.

Diverse assets like these didn't exist until innovation drove progress into gear and our ideas became reality for various businesses and marketers, using these assets in their digital projects. Ultimately we knew it was going to be a tremendous benefit to our customers because it will save them time, money and help them closely represent, connect and engage with their audience."

200-YEAR OLD HISTORICALLY BLACK COMMUNITY IN MICHIGAN CONTINUES TO STRUGGLE AFTER YEARS OF DISENFRANCHISEMENT AND RACIAL INEQUITY

If you live in one of 10 contiguous South Oakland County, Michigan suburbs (one of the wealthiest counties in the United States), you are living on the stolen land and looted lives of a historically Black community called Royal Oak Township, dating back to 1819 and before Michigan’s 1837 statehood. White security and wealth were built simultaneous and interdependently through the destruction and annexation of historically Black Royal Oak Charter Township, now a .55 square mile remnant of an area that once spanned 36 square miles.

With a multi-racial, intergenerational effort, they are currently engaged in work to create a campaign, Truth Toward Reconciliation: "The Vision, Journey, and Voices of Royal Oak Charter Township,” in southern Oakland County whose history is a microcosm of the destruction of black communities, i.e., Detroit’s Black Bottom, Tulsa’s Black Wall Street, and Rosewood’s Massacre.

MUSC BLACK AND HISPANIC/LATINO FACULTY URGE COMMUNITIES OF COLOR TO TAKE THE COVID-19 VACCINE

Nationwide -- Given the devastating impact of the COVID-19 virus on communities of color, the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) Black Faculty Group (BFG) and the MUSC Hispanic/Latino faculty encourage Blacks and Hispanics/Latinos in South Carolina and across the nation to take the COVID-19 vaccine as soon as they can schedule an appointment.

“Our lives depend on it,” said Marvella E. Ford, Ph.D., a professor in the Department of Public Health Sciences, and director, Population Sciences and Cancer Disparities at the MUSC Hollings Cancer Center. A leader of the MUSC BFG for nearly 16 years, Ford stated the group’s perspective, noting that “The vaccine is needed in these communities for three reasons. First, COVID-19 has caused more deaths in the United States than in any other country in the world. Second, COVID-19 infection rates are much higher among Blacks and Hispanics/Latinos than among Whites. Third, COVID-19 death rates among Blacks are double in comparison to the death rates among Whites.”

Meet Kishanna Heyward, the author of Credit is King, Kareem and Credit is Queen, Charlene who was inspired to create a credit coloring book series when her 4-year old daughter asked her about credit. After an unsuccessful search for resources online to help her daughter’s understanding, she decided to create her own.

"I created the credit coloring books to help our youth learn about credit at a very early age. As a former elementary school teacher, I know firsthand how much time is dedicated to standardized testing which often leaves the subject of financial literacy up to parents to teach. Providing kids with a solid financial foundation allows them to avoid mistakes most adults make,” said Kishanna.

The song ‘I Was Hungry (and You Fed Me)’ by Maxamiliano Nealon is a moving homage to the restaurant that’s served as a safe haven for those in need of a hot meal and has touched many lives over the past years. Owners Lisa and Freddie Thomas-McMillan have enthusiastically embraced the song and as passionate music lovers themselves; they see it as a unique opportunity to raise awareness of their mission. The song can be purchased for $1 and downloaded here: https://maximilianonealon.bandcamp.com/track/i-was-hungry-and-you-fed-me.

“With all of our donations based on anonymity and the pandemic forcing us to offer only take-out meals, we’ve had to unfortunately stop accepting contributions as we don’t want to take the chance of someone not getting a meal because they feel embarrassed about what they can or can’t provide in these unprecedented times,” said Lisa McMillan, co-owner of Drexell & Honeybee’s. “Feeding the needy has always been a higher calling for us and with this initiative, we’re hoping we can rally additional support from the community and continue delivering hot meals to those who need it most for many years to come.”

A South Carolina Family and Friends’ Historical Fishing Legacy, Since 1900, By Dr. Charles L. Singleton

Readers, in celebration of this incredibly special February 2021, American historian Carter Godwin Woodson (1875 – 1950), Father of African American history: Founder of Black History Month is remembered (Bing Photo).  Therefore, our “History,” Mr. Woodson: “Some of the Drayton-Flood-Singleton Families’ loved ones, relatives, friends, and neighbors, for the last circa 121 years, fished in ponds, canals, waterways, channels, branches, roadside ditches, and various lakes and swamps.

Other locations possibly, were the MeadWestvaco Canals, and at the Ashley River, near Dorchester State Park, South Carolina.” --- Isreal T. Singleton.  “Then again, some of our earlier family members, and even today, fished in Collection County, the state park area in Givhans, South Carolina.

And very often, many fished alongside the ditched parallel to US 17A, on the way to Cottageville, South Carolina: ‘good fishing.’ We, on many days went all the way to the Train Trestle Bridge on SC Highway 61, passed Middleton Place Garden.” --- Tillman U. Millhouse, Jr.  “We fished in the Sandpit and everywhere; if we could walk, drive, or catch a ride!” ---John Thompson.  “We often fished at the Highway: South Carolina Highway 61 Sandpits, various Swamps, and the MeadWestvaco Canals.” --- Alex Singleton.  Alex was also the recipient of Wal-Mart Bass Fishing League (BFL), “Look for the Hook,” South Carolina Division, Lake Murray 5th Place in 2008.  Enjoy our history, our heritage, our family stories.  Nathaniel Grant, Jr., proudly prepares “The Catch of The Day!”
