Black History: Elizabeth A. Parkhill Gloucester, was an abolitionist, a supporter of the Underground Railroad, business owner, and considered one of the wealthiest Black women at the time of her death in 1883. http://ow.ly/bv2w50Axosr

Invariably around this flip of the calendar and the 4th of July, the great abolitionist and statesman Frederick Douglass commands attention, particularly for his memorable speech that centered on the nation’s hypocrisy, asking what the day means to enslaved people.

Solidarity with Greece There is no other country in Europe after Poland that would experience such a difficult fate in the 20th century and suffered as many victims during the World Wars and after World War II as Greece. In 1940, Greece had about 9.5 million people. Greeks were decimated by the Nazis (about a million Greeks killed by the Germans in 1940-1944), the Jewish population living in Greece in 87% murdered by the Germans on the other hand, the Stalinist USSR supported the network of communist partisans in Greece, causing long-term fighting after World War II fratricidal. Anglo-American capital also wanted to win its own by imposing the dictatorship of "the colonel government" in Greece in the 1970s. Then, after the black dictatorship in the 1980s and 1990s, the naive socialist governments trusting the European Union indefinitely gave the national currency to the wolves devouring and adopting the euro, which in consequence led to the economic catastrophe that is currently taking place in this country. Right now, thousands of Arab refugees sent by Turkey, including Islamic terrorists, have been attacked across the entire Greek border with Turkey. The European Union washes its hands, the Polish government avoids commenting on the problems in the country and the threat of a coronavirus epidemic. The entire cost of this new attack on Greek borders must be borne by Greece, itself suffering from an economic and debt crisis. However, the silence of people of science and culture, often so eager to spend their holidays in this country the cradle of European culture, wonders. European volunteer border protection companies should be set up to peacefully police the borders of Greece, Spain, Italy, Poland, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia against the invasion of illegal refugees sent by enemies.https://www.facebook.com/wolbromska/posts/2768652246545372
