Mamie (Peanut) Johnson, the only female pitcher in the history of the Negro Leagues, watches Mo’ne Davis hurl shutout in opener of Little League World Series

Johnson couldn’t miss seeing the debut of a kid who is believed to be the first African-American girl to play in the 75 years of youth baseball’s most storied tournament.

Let’s hear it for happy tears.

BLACK GIRLS ROCK.

We snapped this near the U.S. Embassy and were harassed by the security there. They requested my camera to look through my photographs. I think the guard was impressed, but I was annoyed. Great times!

African-American Girls & Women Killed By Police: Speak Their Names. See Their Faces. Know Their Stories.

There is this false myth going around that Black women are not victims of police violence. I believe the myth exists because quite frankly the media, social justice organizations and we the public tend not to focus on it. It is a self-fulfilling prophecy. I hope this post will make all of us change our minds. Here are the stories of some of the Black women and girls killed by law enforcement:

my darling,
you’d be surprised how alike we are.
that i have felt what you now feel.

how well I know what it is
to hold onto someone
who doesn’t love you right.
how well i’ve known that feeling.

there are years for breaking,
and years for learning.

do not make the mistake
of thinking the calm
you see in me today
was always there.

do not make the error
of feeling wrong -
or thinking this brokenness
makes you weak.

this is how our hearts get strong,
this is how we learn to breathe,
even when it feels like choking.

words for every generation, f.gabdon (via thegabdonwrites)
