INTERESTING BLACK HISTORY FACTS

Here are some intersting black history facts that you may have heard or not. Check them out:

After African-American performer Josephine Baker expatriated to France, she famously smuggled military intelligence to French allies during World War II. She did this by pinning secrets inside her dress, as well as writing them in invisible ink on her sheet music.

Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated on friend Maya Angelou’s birthday on April 4th, 1968. Angelou stopped celebrating her birthday for many years afterward, and sent flowers to King’s widow every year until Mrs. King’s death in 2006.

Politician and educator Shirley Chisholm survived three assassination attempts during her campaign for the 1972 U.S. presidential election.

W.E.B. Du Bois and William Monroe Trotter started The Niagara Movement, a black civil rights organization which got its name from the group’s first meeting location, Niagara Falls. This collective later became the N.A.A.C.P.

After friend and musical partner Tammi Terrell died of a brain tumor, Marvin Gaye left the music industry for two years. During this time, he tried out for the Detroit Lions football team, but didn’t make the cut. Instead, he returned to the studio to record his hit single, “What’s Goin’ On.”

Ella Fitzgerald had a three-octave range – a range greater than most professional Opera singers.

Famed guitarist Jimi Hendrix was known by close friends and family members simply as “Buster.”

Jesse Jackson successfully negotiated the release of Lieutenant Robert O. Goodman, Jr., an African-American pilot who had been shot down over Syria and taken hostage in 1983.

The “King of Pop,” Michael Jackson, co-wrote the single “We Are the World” with Motown legend Lionel Richie. The single became one of the best-selling singles of all time, with nearly 20 million copies sold and millions of dollars donated to famine relief in Africa.

Chuck Berry

Before becoming a professional musician, Chuck Berry studied to be a hairdresser.
Chuck Berry’s famous “duck walk” dance originated in 1956, when Berry attempted to hide wrinkles in his rayon suit by shaking them out with his now-signature body movements.

JAMES BROWN

Legendary singer James Brown performed in front of a televised audience in Boston the day after Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated. Brown is often given credit for preventing riots with the performance.

Rapper Jay-Z allegedly developed his stage name as a reference to New York’s J/Z subway lines that have a stop in his Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn, neighborhood.

MICHAEL JACKSON TRIAL

The King of Pop’s trial has been ongoing in it’s fourth day it will be interesting to see how things develop.

According to CNN, A third day of testimony gets underway in a Los Angeles courtroom Thursday as a judge decides whether Dr. Conrad Murray will face trial for involuntary manslaughter in the death of singer Michael Jackson.

On Wednesday, a paramedic and a security guard testified that Jackson appeared to be dead when an ambulance arrived at his home at 12:26 p.m. June 25, 2009.

“When I picked him up, his legs were quite cool,” Los Angeles County Paramedic Richard Senneff said. “His eyes were quite dry.”

No pulse was detected, and the paramedics’ heart monitor showed Jackson was “flatlined” as he lay on his bedroom floor, Senneff testified.

Prosecutors contend that Murray’s should be held criminally responsible for giving the pop star a surgical anesthetic, propofol, at home without monitoring equipment.

The coroner concluded Jackson died from “acute propofol intoxication,” in combination “the contributory affects of the benzodiazepines,” Los Angeles County Deputy District Attorney David Walgren said.

I pray for the families and kids of MJ and hope that justice will prevail soon enough. I can only imagine what it’s like for the family and kids to have to relive everything and go back. I also read that one of his children may have to testify. What do you think about this?
