Thomas L. Jennings (1791–1856) was the first African-American to be granted a patent, March 03, 1821 (U.S. patent 3306x).

The single most effective White propaganda assertion that continues to make it very difficult for us to reconstruct the African social systems of mutual trust broken down by U.S. Slavery is the statement, unqualified, that, "We sold each other into slavery." Most of us have accepted this statement as true at its face value. It implies that parents sold their children into slavery to Whites, husbands sold their wives, even brothers and sisters selling each other to the Whites. It continues to ...Read Full Post »

Original People! Stop celebrating St Valentine (who we don’t know at all), and celebrate black love through Akoma Day! What is love? What is Valentine’s Day? Most importantly what is it’s relevance to black people. We are a people who epitomize love in all its forms; love of god, love of self and love of others.
