Today's #blackhistorymonth highlight is Dutty Boukman.
#DuttyBoukman is said to be from West Africa today's Senegal and Gambia. It is not sure if he was born in Jamaica or in Africa. He was nicknamed Boukman because he taught himself to read. According to the story, he either escaped from Jamaica to Haiti or was sold to the French Colonizers because he tried to teach other slaves to read.

His rebellious tendency continues when he begin to encourage the Haitin slaves to rise up Due to this fact, he was known as the catalyst for the Haitian Revolution and was said to be killed by the French in the early days of the Revolution.
The Haitian Revolution, which began in 1791 eventually led to Independence and Emancipation for the country of Haiti. Dutty Boukman is credited for helping Haiti to be the world's first black-led republic and the first independent Caribbean state.

TRUMP UNDER FIRE OVER CORONAVIRUS RESPONSE: Trump admin health officials are addressing the U.S. response to coronavirus.

TRUMP UNDER FIRE OVER CORONAVIRUS RESPONSE: Trump admin health officials are addressing the U.S. response to coronavirus. Pres. Trump today claimed the virus is 'very well under control in our country,' seemingly contradicting officials with the Centers for Disease Control, who say a U.S. outbreak is likely. The CDC today asked Americans 'to prepare for the expectation that this might be bad.' In 2018, Trump fired his Director of Global Health Security & eliminated the entire unit. He also ended the CDC's epidemic prevention work in 10 countries, including China.

CRUISE SHIP LEFT A SEA AS #CORONAVIRUS SPREAD WORLDWIDE.

There are reports that the A MSC Meraviglia cruise ship that arrived in Ocho Rio, St Ann from Miami earlier today has been ordered to remain a sea.

The reports are from the Gleaner are, the decision was taken after it was discovered that a crew member, who has a travel history to countries with cases of the Coronavirus, was placed in isolation aboard the vessel.

“We saw that there was somebody there who is in quarantine because that person came from the Philippines and the 14 days have not elapsed,” public relations and advocate officer at the North East Regional Health Authority, Angenice Whyte, told The Gleaner.

Whyte further explained that “they have that person in quarantine but that was not told to us before the ship docked, so as part of our public health standard and regulation handed down by the Ministry of Health on how we deal with communicable diseases, we did not allow persons to leave the ship.

The United States is embracing itself as the Outbreak grows in Asia and Europe. Italy now has the highest number of #coronavirus infections outside Asia, as 54 new cases were detected in the country's north overnight, bringing the total to 283, the Italian civil protection agency said Tuesday~CNN

The Root of Violence In Jamaica:
Child Abuse & Child Neglect?

PARALLEL REALITY
PART 1 - Rated PG 13

Since the start of 2020, 198 persons have been murdered in Jamaica that’s an average of 4 persons daily. For a county that claims we have the most churches per square mile how can we be so murderous and violent? Of course we didn’t get here overnight but clearly the methods we’ve been using in my lifetime to fix the problem haven’t been working.

In this series of #ParallelReality I speak with retired Deputy Commissioner of Police, Novelette Grant as she shines light on the Jamaican Violence Reality now facing us all.

Stay tuned for Part 2

(Novelette Grant currently trains youth nationally and regionally in violence prevention and behaviour modification)

Malcolm X , original name Malcolm Little, Muslim name el-Hajj Malik el-Shabazz, (born May 19, 1925- February 21, 1965) was an African American leader and prominent figure in the Nation of Islam who articulated concepts of race pride and black nationalism in the early 1960s. After his assassination, the widespread distribution of his life story— The Autobiography of Malcolm X (1965)—made him an ideological hero, especially among black youth.

Today's #BlackHistoryMonth Highlight is:

Festus Claudius "Claude" McKay (September 15, 1889 – May 22, 1948) was a Jamaican writer and poet. He wrote four novels: Home to Harlem (1928), a best-seller that won the Harmon Gold Award for Literature, Banjo (1929), Banana Bottom (1933), and in 1941 a manuscript called Amiable With Big Teeth: A Novel of the Love Affair Between the Communists and the Poor Black Sheep of Harlem which remained unpublished until 2017. McKay also authored collections of poetry, a collection of short stories, two autobiographical books, A Long Way from Home (1937) and My Green Hills of Jamaica (published posthumously in 1979), and a non-fiction, socio-historical treatise. His 1922 poetry collection was among the first books published during the Harlem Renaissance. His Selected Poems was published posthumously, in 1953.

In 1977, the government of Jamaica named Claude McKay the national poet and posthumously awarded him the Order of Jamaica for his contribution to literature.

In 2002, scholar Molefi Kete Asante listed Claude McKay on his list of 100 Greatest African Americans. McKay is regarded as the "foremost left-wing black intellectual of his age" and his work heavily influenced a generation of black authors.

Claude McKay's poem "If We Must Die" was recited in the film August 28: A Day in the Life of a People, which debuted at the opening of the Smithsonian's National Museum of African American History and Culture in 2016.

McKay advocated full civil liberties and racial solidarity

#BlackHistoryMonth

Ralph Bunche, in full Ralph Johnson Bunche, (born Aug. 7, 1904 —died Dec. 9, 1971) was a U.S. diplomat, a key member of the United Nations for more than two decades, and winner of the 1950 Nobel Prize for Peace for his successful negotiation of an Arab-Israeli truce in Palestine the previous year.

In his later years, Bunche began to speak out more directly on U.S. racial discrimination. In addition, though not in the best of health, he participated in the 1965 civil rights marches in both Selma and Montgomery, and also served as a board member for the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People for 22 years.

Today is recognized internationally as World Social Justice Day. It is an initiative of the United Nation.

Social justice is an underlying principle for peaceful and prosperous coexistence within and among nations. We uphold the principles of social justice when we promote gender equality, or the rights of indigenous peoples and migrants. We advance social justice when we remove barriers that people face because of gender, age, race, ethnicity, religion, culture or disability~https://www.un.org/en/observances/social-justice-day
