Boy oh boy! These textile factory workers sure did not appreciate the long hours of grueling labor and unsafe working conditions! ✂️ They were churning out those shirts nicely for a while there though! 👕 who needs machines when you have #MechanizedLabor amirite? And to think, until the #Enclosure movement, they started out as simple farmers. 👨🏽‍🌾 👩🏻‍🌾
Yo what the heck?! Look at this! This is what I find on my egg carton 🍳. What kind of world are we living in? LITERALLY! I don’t know if I can buy these eggs anymore 🥚. I like that they’re cage free and they respect the chickens 🐓 , but how can you have so little respect for BASIC GEOGRAPHY?!?!?! 🌎 🌍 #TheWorldIsBackwards #YouGottaBeYolking #AboutToCrack #EggstremelyOffended
The Story of the Guillotine: The Enlightened Killing Machine Check out the full documentary on YouTube!
It really doesn’t feel like 17 years ago. It feels like a million years ago. And it feels like yesterday. The emotions are still strong. It’s still hard for me to think about it, to talk about it. We are still dealing with the effects of it. We must always remember that day and make sure we take the right lessons from it. Here’s to hoping for a better, safer world for everyone in which the power of love, peace, and acceptance can overcome hatred, violence, and intolerance. I hope that you guys can play a role in making that world a reality. 🗽
As we finish our first day #BackToSchool, consider this... On #ThisDayinHistory 1957, the town of Little Rock becomes a idealogical battleground. Under orders from the governor of Arkansas, armed National Guardsmen prevent nine African-American students from attending the all-white Central High School in Little Rock. Hazel Bryan was just 15 when this photo was taken, as was Elizabeth Eckford, the girl Bryan was screaming at. It was the first day of school in Little Rock, Arkansas. In 1957, a Federal District Court ordered the all-white Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas, to allow African-American students to attend. Governor Orval Faubus declared that he would not follow the decree. When nine African-American students attempted to enter the school on September 4, 1957, a crowd of several hundred angry and belligerent whites confronted them. Hundreds of National Guardsmen, called up by Faubus, blocked the students’ entry into the school. Faubus’s action won him acclaim from many but it was a serious embarrassment to the Eisenhower administratiuon. Eisenhower tried to negotiate a settlement with Faubus, but when this failed, he sent in federal troops. The nine African-American students were finally allowed to attend Central High. #CivilRights #BacktoSchool #USHistory
