Drowning out white noise with black voices. We're still here. We might not be trending on instagram, you might have decided to delete all your posts on black knowledge and mute black voices because it doesnt look good on your IG profile... but we're not gone. #whitenoiseblackvoices #blacklivesmatter #blackvoicesmatter

Jeremy Lett. February 4, 2015. Each one of these dots is an unarmed Black life lost to authority violence from January 1, 2015 to May 25, 2020. 109 lives lost. 109 stories ended. One life lost is one too many, 109 is systemic racism. There are links in my bio of organizations facilitating change, including a National Resource List covering a host of different organizations where our donations can actually make a difference. #blacklivesmatter #blackvoicesmatter #jeremymattered #sayhisname #jeremylett Sources: The Washington Post, mappingpoliceviolence.org

“Josh has 2 teeth, he bites everything and everyone! He is walking, climbing up the stairs, always found opening all the kitchen cabinets, screams his favourite word as soon as he wakes up ( Na-Na-Na ) aka Banana 🍌 I think that’s his way of telling me he is hungry😆. ⠀ ⠀ He turns one next month. I still can’t deal with how quick he is growing😯 I have completely stopped breastfeeding, I feel this is the right time for us. ⠀ ⠀ He doesn’t seem bothered about not getting breast milk any more. I believe that’s because I didn’t go cold turkey on him. I decided it was best to gradually drop one feeding session at a time. This has helped me as well as I have not had that engorged feeling mamas often experience once they stop breastfeeding. ⠀ ⠀ I feel blessed to have breastfed him for a whole 11 months which is so much more than I did with my 1st baby. Breastfeeding can be challenging but at the same time it’s one of the most rewarding experiences I have had on my journey through motherhood. “ Post by: @maamalivvy ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #blackmoms#blackbabiesmatter#11monthsold#almostone#blackbabies#melanin#momblogger#blackbritishblogger#thismamahood#motherhoounplugged#mumsofinstagram#blackmoms#babyboyfashion#mumsunite#blackvoicesmatter#blackmumblogger#blackmotherhood

9.18.2020: There was a scientific journalist collecting the canisters and any of the impact munitions they use. These are what was gathered by a scientific journalist who is aiding the research on what officers are using to deter demonstrators. .

Learn. Andrew Frierson taught at Southern University in Baton Rouge, La., in the early 1950s; directed the Henry Street Settlement Music School in Manhattan in the ’60s; and was a professor of voice at the Oberlin Conservatory of Music in Ohio in the ’70s. In the early 1980s, Mr. Frierson and a colleague, James Kennon-Wilson, founded Independent Black Opera Singers, to encourage the careers of black male performers through education and competitions and by calling attention to the scarcity of blacks cast in major roles. “There has not been a ‘real’ black male opera superstar because of racist and sexist attitudes in America,” he was quoted as saying in “Dialogues on Opera and the African-American Experience” (1997 ), by Wallace McClain Cheatham. “Audiences, particularly white audiences, may tolerate a black woman being wooed and pursued by a white male, but to have a black male wooing and pursing a white female is totally unacceptable by the powers that be.” Andrew Bennie Frierson was born on March 29, 1924, in Columbia, Tenn., the youngest of seven children of Robert Clinton Frierson, a railroad worker, and Lue Vergia (Esters ) Frierson, a homemaker. The family moved to Louisville, Ky., nine months later. When he returned home after [WWII] , Mr. Frierson studied with a voice teacher, who encouraged him to apply to the Juilliard School in New York. He was accepted, and befriended two women at the school: the future opera star Leontyne Price and a soprano who would become known professionally as Billie Lynn Daniel. He and Ms. Daniel married in 1953. She died in 2002. After graduating from Juilliard with a degree in vocal performance, Mr. Frierson earned a master’s from the Manhattan School of Music. Reviewing Mr. Frierson’s 1949 debut, Ross Parmenter of The New York Times wrote that Mr. Frierson, who was still at Juilliard at the time, “gives promise of being a fine concert artist,” adding, “He already has the essential attributes — a beautiful voice, good technique, musicianship, sympathy and a fine presence.” Source: https://www.nytimes.com/2018/12/14/obituaries/andrew-frierson-dead.html #amplifymelanatedvoices #blackvoicesmatter #blackartistsmatter

09.05.2020. . Some footage of police misconduct that I got from the 100 day. . The first clip is us getting pushed down Stark Street. After passing the lady who got pushed by the cop the street was littered with officers piled on top of several demonstrators. At least 7 people we're arrested in the first push. . The second clip is when we got back to Ventura Park and a small crowd was at the corner of the intersection. You can see a officer throwing a tear gas canister at close range covering the group in year gas. Many who attended weren't prepared for the amount tear gas used that night. . The last clip is before I left. We got pushed onto the intersection of E Burnside and 117th. The main group was able to join up with the group I was with which was mainly press and medics. The officers used rapid fire shots to deter demonstrators from participating. . #blmpdx #blm #blacklivesmatter #blackvoicesmatter #saytheirnames #nojusticenopeace #abolishpolice #abolishice #pdx #oregonlife #pdxprotests #pdxprotest #portlandprotest #portlandprotests #portlandprotest2020 #portlandoregon #dumptrump #fucktrump #fuckthecops #affinitypress #BreonnaTaylor #jasonwashington #patrickkimmons #tetegulley #ajaraquelrhonesspears #elijahmclain #GeorgeFloyed

Portrait Manifesto Black Lives Matter - Beatrice Burggraff - Curly Hair Queen at Avenue B ( @bealaynett ) . I had the absolute pleasure to finally meet Beatrice Burggraff, curly hair connoisseur and owner of Avenue B. I say finally because we’d been messaging back and forth about getting her in the studio for weeks and even before meeting in person I knew we’d be kindred spirits. She entered wearing a gorgeous lace green dress and shoes to die for partnered with a warm smile and I definitely had to hold myself back from giving her the biggest hug. Her story is beautiful and honest and her journey is a testament to what a little courage and stepping out in faith can be for your life. . “My business is called Avenue B, it’s a hair salon suite. I've had the hair salon suite for about 10 years as a suite itself but I’ve been a hairdresser for 24 years. I took a class in 2019 by a wonderful group called Cut it Kinky that I found through social media. Everything they were saying sounded right; this felt like the missing link. The class was the most I’ve ever paid for a class. As a stylist working on your own a lot of times you’re often saying to yourself, do I want to invest in this? Even though I might want to do it, being a stylist working with mostly ethnic hair is hard because your clients only want to pay a certain amount. I think a lot of that comes from the culture. We grow up doing each other’s hair so I don’t think they look at it as a real job - they think they can do it themselves. But this class was for me, too. I’d never seen a curl in my hair. A lot of people are textured and don’t know it, and I was one of those. I had just started putting henna in my hair, and even though henna is natural it impeded the hydration from getting in my hair. It took a whole year for it to reach its full potential. It was a great discovery - it kept changing and moving, and I was like, okay God, this is what you gave me. Thank you! It wasn’t what I thought I was getting but that’s okay. —> continued in comments❤️

I want to thank my friend Marcy for using her platform so that my melanated voice can be heard.  This was A LOT for me, but I’m glad I did it. I had so much more to say.........but I will leave this platform with this: I am a black woman, wife to a black police officer, mother, grandmother, hairstylist, entrepreneur.........and I’M TIRED. I’M TIRED of being told that I can’t support my husband’s career while supporting his black skin at the same time. I’M TIRED of seeing countless black people disproportionately being victims of police brutality. I’M TIRED of white people telling black people that we don’t care about crime in our communities. I’M TIRED of racial insensitivity, economic inequality, gender inequality and unchecked white privilege. I’M TIRED of social justice issues being preached in pulpits that don’t hold their wicked counterparts to the same exposure. I’M TIRED of having to remind my black children that they have to work harder than everyone else, and even then they won’t be considered equal. I’M TIRED of our healthcare system for denying women of color equal and proper care. For thinking our pain threshold is greater than everyone else.... I’M TIRED of politics. Instead of defunding the police, we should defund politicians..... I’M TIRED of paper pushers sitting at tables deciding policies & procedures for professions they haven’t worked in. I’M TIRED of the idea that I’m suppose to educate white people on black history. And the fact that the wrong history is being taught in schools. I’M TIRED of being tired. I am a black woman, who worked for EVERYTHING I have, and I’M TIRED. 🙏🏽 #ShareTheMicNow #AmplifyMelanatedVoices #WomenEmpoweringWomen #BlackGirlMagic #UsingMyWhitePrivelege #UncomfortableConversations #EducateYourself #BlackLivesMatter #BlackVoicesMatter

What breaks me is that Chadwick had to keep his struggle private in order to get movie roles because ableism is such a huge problem in our society and is now being praised for suffering in silence. 💔 Society needs to stop commenting on weight loss and even weight gain for that matter. I’ve been guilty of this before, but I learned. You never know what someone is going through. Repost from @brownactivist_ #disabilityjustice #disabilityinclusion #disabilityawareness #ableism

Not so much a Happy Birthday post, but more of a moment of ✨ GRATITUDE ✨ I truly thank the heaven and stars for bringing Jenn into my life. In a few weeks we’ll be celebrating 10 fucking years of friendship and that shit really brings me to tears sometimes 😅 I feel like grateful doesn’t really cover how I feel about our friendship. Jenn is so kind, so smart, and truly knows the meaning of unconditional love. There are a lot of times where hanging out with someone can make me feel drained, but I get the exact opposite feeling around you, Jenn! I love that we can be ourselves 1000% together. I never have to explain why I am feeling what I am feeling and I’m always met with love and empathy. I’ve never questioned if our friendship would stand the test of time, even when she lived 400 miles away 😂 I love you and I ain’t ever gone stop loving you, bitch 😂😂 (PS, this was like moments before our blunt almost drowned in the ocean 😭 I saved it though ) • • • • #TikTok #makeup #funny #relatable #blackgirl #blackvoicesmatter #blackgirlmagic #stoner #blackstonerchicks #420 #420blazeit #wig #hair #naturalhair #blackhair #type4hair #protectivestyles #funny #comedy #blackcreators #blackvoicesheard #questionsformen #tiktoktrend #naturalhair #blackgirlmagic #hairtutorial #paddleboarding #redondobeach #divensurf #bestfriend #happybirthday #gratitude #manifestation
