God's Trombone

Blackness. Jazz. Rap. Politics. History. Religion. When I'm stressed I turn to Coltrane and when I'm angry it's Mingus. James Baldwin is my favorite writer and Yasiin Bey my favorite rapper.  “I am black; I am in total fusion with the world, in sympathetic affinity with the earth, losing my id in the heart of the cosmos -- and the white man, however intelligent he may be, is incapable of understanding Louis Armstrong or songs from the Congo. I am black, not because of a curse, but because my skin has been able to capture all the cosmic effluvia. I am truly a drop of sun under the earth.” - Frantz Fanon
The Little Rock 9 volunteered to be the first African American student’s to desegregate Little Rock’s Central High School. During these ordeals they were constantly harassed with threats, assault, intimidation by White Mobs waiting for them after school and even acid and dynamite being used as means to harm them. They are rarely taught in classrooms but their bravery are a small example of the of the plight of Black Education in the United States
