While attending Central State in 1960, Harris's case challenging segregation, "Hoston v. the State of Louisiana," went to the Louisiana Supreme Court.

    Dr. Harris served as president, 1993-1995, of the Association for the Study of African American Life and History. In 1998, she was appointed city historian for Washington, D.C., the first person to hold the post. That same year, Dr. Harris established The Legacy Award program for the DC Hall of Fame. Over the course of her professional career, she has been the recipient of numerous awards for her civic and educational commitment.

    Special Episode: Celebrating Black History Month 2015

    in Lifestyle

    This special episode is in Celebrating Black History Month.  We will be recognizing the unsung heroes as the month of February provides special attention on the lives of those of African descent.  It is one thing to remember the ones who we all know like Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr, Mrs. Rosa Parks, Malcolm X, Ms. Harriett Tubman, Mr. Frederick Douglass, and many others.  However, we would also like to shine light on some individuals who have made great accomplishments and sacrifices in their lives and in turn has impacted the lives of others.  


    There are many before us who have been trailblazers, such as Dr. Rebecca Lee Crumpler, the first African-American female to receive her medical degree in the USA,Mr. Hiram Revels, the first African-American to become a US Congressmen, Dr. Guion Stewart “Guy” Bluford, Jr., the first African-American astronaut to actually travel in space, Mr. Thurgood Marshall, the first African-American to become a US Supreme Court Justice, and Madam CJ Walker, the first American woman to become a millionaire.  Let us not forget a recent accomplishment in having the first African-American president of the USA, Mr. Barack Obama.  


    Notice that we are sharing the stories of just a few African-Americans who were the first to achieve some major accomplishments.  Now the question is what will you be the first at?  We have no excuse as the ceiling for Arican-Americans to reach their biggest goals and dreams has been BROKEN.


    YOU ARE BLACK HISTORY!!

    Thurgood Marshall- Thaddeus Stevens - Lincoln Abolitionists

    in Education

     
    Dr. John Hope Franklin is the tie that binds- Not only is he the son of the great Civill Rights Lawyer Buck Franklin he was also an advisor to Thurgood Marshall during the historical Brown v. Board of Education Topeka 
    Dr. Franklin's father Buck Franklin sued the City of Tulsa for passing an ordinance that effectively barred blacks from rebuilding their city, "Black Wall Street" after the Tulsa Race Riots of 1921.  Buck Franklin won that suit before the Oklahoma Supreme Court.
    His father’s success – and his critical importance to the Greenwood community – became a preamble to the success and importance of the son. Dr. John Hope Franklin became one of the most important American historians of the 20th Century.
    As a historian, a scholarly voice working for American civil rights, an advisor to Thurgood Marshall during the United States Supreme Court Case Brown v. Board of  Education, Dr. Franklin was on Marshall’s team of historians which uncovered a speech written in 1866 by Thaddeus Stevens, (Steven Spielberg's Movie Lincoln (Tommy Lee Jones) the leader of the Aboltionist Republicans who introduced the 14th Amendment. 
    Steven delivered his speech before Congress Steven said in part: “Where any State makes a distinction in the same law between different classes of individuals, Congress shall have the power to correct such discriminations and inequality.” Marshall and his team argued that the drafters of the amendment -Bingham himself had stated that constitutional provisions should be “writ broad for ages yet unborn.”
