A Darker Side of Lincoln
Is it true that Abraham Lincoln was secretly an African American all along?
Was he just passing as White for most of his life?
Did his alleged knowledge of this African ancestry make it easier for him to grant freedom for American slaves with his Emancipation Proclamation?
Was Lincoln a closet slave-owner who wanted to rule America as a tyrant?
These and other questions will be addressed in this article.

Malcolm X on the Power of Black Collectivism
The following is an excerpt from El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz (Malcolm X)’s speech “The Ballot or The Bullet” delivered on April 12, 1964 at King Solomon Baptist Church in Detroit, Michigan.
In this speech, the minister and human rights activist submits a charge to the ‘Black’ people of the United States of America with his blueprint on their future political and economic survival. While his lecture on Black Nationalism is most relevant to the time he spoke these words, much of his theory on how to achieve and maintain a successful community remains applicable in a 21st century world that is still not conducive to 'Black’ collective progress.
The Women Who Said No.
While we commemorate the Montgomery Bus Boycott and the legacy of Rosa Parks, we cannot forget the sacrifices of the many thousands of Black Americans who walked the extra mile to secure the freedoms that we enjoy today.
Among them were names as much deserving of recognition as Rosa Parks, but names we may never find in a textbook on American history.
Meet the Black women who said "No."
