Black female WWII unit recognized with congressional honor

At last!!! The incredible battalion of Black women who sorted and routed millions of pieces of backed up mail in just three months during World War 2 have been awarded the Congressional Gold Medal! ๐ŸŽŠ๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿ†

"The House voted Monday to award the only all-female, Black unit to serve in Europe during World War II with the Congressional Gold Medal.

The 422-0 vote follows a long-running campaign to recognize the 6888th Central Postal Directory Battalion. The Senate passed the legislation last year. The unit, known in short as the Six Triple Eight, was tasked with sorting and routing mail for millions of American service members and civilians. Only a half-dozen of the more than 850 members are still alive.

โ€œItโ€™s overwhelming,โ€ Maj. Fannie Griffin McClendon, who is 101 and lives in Arizona, said when told of the vote. โ€œItโ€™s something I never even thought about it. I donโ€™t know if I can stand this.โ€

The 6888th Central Postal Directory Battalion was credited with solving a growing mail crisis during its stint in England and, upon their return, serving as a role model to generations of Black women who joined the military."

"Lord, I donโ€™t know what the outcome of this difficult circumstance will be, but I know that You will work all things for my good because I love You! Your grace is sufficient for me, and Your power is made perfect in my weakness. So, I boast about this trial and my weakness so that Christโ€™s power may rest on me. God, after my suffering, please restore me and make me strong, firm, and steadfast. I know that these sufferings will produce perseverance, character, and hope. For these light and momentary troubles are achieving for me an eternal glory that outweighs all of them. So, in my trials, God, help me to fix my eyes not on what is seen, the temporary things that burden me, but on what is unseen, which is eternal. I praise You that You comfort me in my troubles so that I can comfort others with that same comfort. Iโ€™ll delight in weakness, in hardships, in difficulties, for when I am weak, then I am strong. Lord, help me to remember that in everything, I am more than a conqueror through Christ, and because of this, I can approach Your throne of grace with confidence."

"We need to keep an eye on the other human experiences to give ourselves the fullness and the breadth of our own humanity," he said in an interview with O, The Oprah Magazine in 2000. "Our humanity is served back to us through the eyes of those who have diminished us. And they serve back to us a view of ourselves that is incomplete. If we don't look to the bigger picture, our view will narrow to that which is constantly fed to us."

What We Represent

AlTaMiRa Brand expands visions and representation by producing positive, diverse content and promoting stories that are overlooked in the mainstream media.

AlTaMiRa Brand publishes original children's books and advocates children's literacy. We promote social diversity in literature and positive images to the youth. We show them content they donโ€™t consistently see in the media. We celebrate the beauty of being different. Our Book Series:

The Anti-Socialites Diaries features the nerdy, extremely awkward, and completely uncool twin sisters Asia and Tasia McKinley. Asia and Tasia are on an epic journey: They must survive insurmountable perils, overcome tremendous challenges and defeat formidable villains at school. The Anti-Socialites series is a comical ode to the elementary school, middle school, and high school years that we hope our readers can make hilarious connections to with their own experiences.

The Kippington Town Secret Series is a mystery series about middle school students who discover a secret that was hidden from the town. Ria, Ramone, Collin, Natasha, Tate, and Cecilia are news reporters for their school when they stumble upon a shocking secret that changes the lives of residents in Kippington Town.

Love this touching dedication from Dr. Chyna Hill. Four years ago today, I started a dual degree program (MSW/PhD) at the University of Southern California. Right before I left, my great grandmother (91 at the time) said, โ€œAll I have is the money to bury me with but you take it.โ€ Last month? Granny turned 95. These are for her.
This looks great!!! ๐Ÿคฉ "Maddie (Alyssa Cheatham) is a quick-thinking little girl with a big personality and a huge heart, who has a passion for fashion. She finds design inspiration around every corner and her big ideas couldnโ€™t become a reality without the love and support of her aspirational and talented fashion designer mom, Dee (Patina Miller), and her super cool and upbeat musician dad, Rashad (James Monroe Iglehart), along with the assistance of friends and neighbors, including her kind, animal-loving best friend Jada (Sophia Torres) and the twins โ€” rule-following Harper (Amanda Dressel) and fearless Hudson (Ames McNamara) โ€” who are always up for adventure. Maddieโ€™s creative thinking and dazzling designs are a reflection of the bustling, colorful city of New York and its residents. Maddie confidently embraces her own unique style, celebrates individuality, treats everyone with kindness, and encourages others to take risks and be themselves. Created by Paula Rosenthal and produced by Silvergate Media, the 22 x half-hour series follows Maddie, and eight-year old living in New York City, as she uses her imagination and design ingenuity to turn every problem into a positive with the perfect fashion fix. Made by Maddie will continue to air regularly Sundays at 11 a.m. (ET/PT) on Nick Jr."
