All of the signage and money in the world will not stop these killings in our neighborhoods. We who are the people, the neighbors have to change our “Hoods” into “Neighborhoods” where we are neighborly to our fellow man. It is us that must make a change in our mentality. We must began to love, care and respect one another the foundation of being “Neighborly”.
What an auspicious occasion! I have been published in the esteemed Black History Bulletin. You will find my article entitled “An Introduction to Stem Course and Careers Through a Brief Historical Narrative of the Tuskegee Movable School.” My article discusses students situating themselves in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math majors through the lens of history and identifying with historical figures. You may read the abstract here,
“How do students view history and science? Do students see history and science as disparate and distinct or connected and dependent? Further, do students see themselves in said history and science? It is paramount in today’s educational climate that students gain an inclusive, culturally diverse, and connected view of history and science as America places a new focus on study and careers in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM).”
I am very humbled yet excited about this recognition of my research and the opportunity to be published in a Peer Reviewed journal! I also encourage you to learn more about the Black History Bulletin and Association for the Study of African American Life and History. Helen R. Houston provides us this succinct description in the Encyclopedia of African American Education,
“The Negro History Bulletin was founded in October 1937 at the urging of Mary McLeod Bethune, president of the Association for the Study of Negro Life (later to be known as the Association for the Study of African American Life and History [ASALH]). It was the brainchild of Carter G. Woodson, often called the “father of Black history,” who had created the ASALH in 1915 to promote African American history. The last issue of the Negro History Bulletin was published in 2000, but it continues as the Black History Bulletin.”
Healthy hair and scalp require massage or scalp manipulation. Since I have Locs I do not brush my hair like I did without locs. I have found this scalp massager to be one of the best gifts I have received recently.
My very good Godson, Justus gave me a little device that is one of the best things since sliced bread. It looks like a wiry, tentacled, curved pick. Each wire has a protected bulbed ending that touches your scalp.
You simply place the bulbed tips to your scalp and move the device around your head, moving it in an up and down fashion. Of course you could use your hands as I have previously done, but this is far better! It gets the blood to circulating and it is soothing. It is actually also very relaxing and calming to use.
I have also used if for tension and stress relief. It is a great gadget! Wish I had tought of it myself! 🙂 ♥
