Guion Stewart: First African American to Go to Space.

Colonel Guion is an American aerospace engineer, retired U.S. Air Force officer, fighter pilot, and former NASA astronaut who is the first African American to go to space.

He participated in four space shuttle flights between 1983 and 1992. In 1983, as a member of the crew of the Orbiter Challenger on the mission STS-8, he became the first African American in space and the second person of African ancestry in space, after Cuban cosmonaut Arnaldo Tamayo Méndez.

In 2002, African American Nurse Ernest Grant Won the Nurse Of The Year Award For Treating 9/11 Burn Victims.

As the president of the American Nurses Association (ANA), Ernest Grant helps represent the interests of America’s four million registered nurses and has worked to encourage diversity in nursing. He is the first male to hold this office. An internationally recognized burn-care and fire-safety expert, he was presented the Nurse of the Year Award in 2002 by President George W. Bush for his work treating burn victims from the World Trade Center.

Dr. Obi's early research dealt mainly with the question of the existence of periodic solutions of nonlinear ordinary differential equations. He successfully used the perturbation technique, and several of his publications immensely helped stimulate research interest in this subject throughout the world and have become classics in the literature.

The Longest Detained Journalist #FreeDawitIsaak

In 2001, the Eritrean government shut down the entire independent press and arrested Swedish-Eritrean journalist Dawit Isaak, a prolific writer, and courageous journalist, along with his colleagues.

What was Isaak's crime? He had published an open letter calling for democratic reform, which was signed by fifteen members of Eritrean President Isaias Afwerki’s government.

Eleven of the open letter’s signatories were detained along with him, and some have already died in prison.

Isaak's present location and condition are unknown. In 2008, there were unconfirmed reports that he was transferred to a maximum-security prison where he became seriously ill and was admitted to a hospital in the capital, Asmara. Isaak is likely being held in the Eiraeiro prison camp, one of a network of secret prisons where thousands of political prisoners are held in what Amnesty International calls “unimaginably atrocious conditions.”

Amnesty International considers him a prisoner of conscience and has called for his immediate and unconditional release. There have been no independent media in Eritrea since Isaak’s arrest.

In 2019, the Committee to Protect Journalists designated Eritrea the most censored country in the world.

Africa remains the worst repressor of the media, where 1 in every 4 journalists are in prison for their work.

African American people in the United States have a higher risk of developing asthma. They’re five times more likely to visit the emergency room for symptoms and almost three times more likely to die from an asthma episode.

McCoy made numerous inventions and continued to refine his devices, receiving nearly 60 patents over the course of his life.

Although McCoy's achievements were recognized in his own time, his name did not appear on the majority of the products that he devised. Lacking the capital with which to manufacture his lubricators in large numbers, he typically assigned his patent rights to his employers or sold them to investors. In 1920, toward the end of his life, McCoy formed the Elijah McCoy Manufacturing Company to produce lubricators bearing his name.

FUNTIMES NEWS‼️

Germany has agreed to return to Nigeria priceless artefacts that were stolen during the colonisation of Africa.

British troops looted thousands of artworks known as the Benin Bronzes from the Kingdom of Benin, in present-day Nigeria, in 1897.

Following auctions, some of the bronzes ended up in museums and private collections across Europe.

They hold deep cultural significance, and there is growing international pressure to give them back.

This is a developing story.

Black people still face wage and promotion disparities. For Black women, the problem is double, as they deal with both gender and racial barriers.

The higher you go, the fewer Black professionals you see. At the senior manager and VP level, Black workers make up just 5% of the workforce. At the SVP level, just 4%. At the very top, only around 1% of Fortune 500 CEO spots are held by Black leaders.

If the current trajectory continues, McKinsey & Company estimates that it could take 95 years before Black employees reach parity at all levels in the private sector.

"Black workers, on average, are not being hired, promoted, or paid according to what would signal their level of productivity based on their experience or their education," Valerie Wilson, director of the Economic Policy Institute's program on race, ethnicity, and the economy, tells CNBC Make It. And "it absolutely impacts everything. It impacts your family's economic security."

On average, Black men are paid just $0.71 for every dollar paid to white men, according to EPI. Black women, who face both gender and racial barriers, are paid just $0.63 for every dollar paid to white men. Over the course of a 40-year career, the National Women's Law Center estimates that Black women stand to lose close to $1 million due to this disparity.

Amabutho There is a article by Nana Ama Addo, *The People Speak, public opinions of covid-19. And though I respect her and her journey, and courage. I won't read it / open-it because you deliberately used a #straight-haired# model. Which does not represent the Afrikan centeredness of the Queen. Which will infect some Sisters mind regardless of age. That if I want to be on the cover, be a host, or a model. One has to have straight hair. This was not done mindlessly, its the results of "Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome", and if nobody says nothing it will continue to manifest. Had to stop watching 3, 6, 10, and 17 news because ALL the Sisters have straight hair. What is this doing to Our Daughters subconsciously ?????? Nature says that Everything that comes from a Black Womb has "curl-flat-curl" hair.
What a significant advance for Philadelphia.
