08vQ37[1]Tupac Amaru Shakur, born June 16th 1971 to the parents of Alice Faye Williams and Billy Garland both Black Panther Members,  was an American rapper and actor. As of 2007, Shakur has sold over 75 million records worldwide. His double disc albums All Eyez on Me and his Greatest Hits are among the best-selling albums in the United States. He has been listed and ranked as one of the greatest artists of all time.

Tupac began life as Lesane Parish Crooks in Harlem, New York, on June 16, 1971. His mother, Alice Faye Williams, (Tupac Mother) changed her name to Afeni Shakur after becoming actively involved with the Black Panther Party; she also renamed young Lesane Parish as Tupac Amaru, after an 18th-century Peruvian revolutionary who was killed by the Spanish. She had become pregnant with her son in 1970 while on bail after being charged with conspiring to set off a race war — Afeni was acquitted the following year after successfully defending herself in court, displaying a gift for oration that her son would inherit. Tupac’s father, Billy Garland, was also a Panther.

Though first inspired by African-Americans, many of African descent celebrate this occasion today. Its reach has grown to include all whose roots are in the Motherland. Its’ concept is neither religious nor political, but is rooted strongly in a cultural awareness. This is not a substitute for Christmas; however, gifts may be exchanged with the principles of Nguzo Saba always in mind. Gifts are given to reinforce personal growth and achievement which benefits the collective community.

SLAVERY IN NYC

Great News In East Harlem

untitled

The 126th Street depot in East Harlem — one of New York’s oldest bus depots — will close its doors in January to become a memorial for slaves found buried there.

About 7 years ago construction workers first discovered a 17th-century African burial ground at the depot located between 1st and 2nd avenues. The MTA had planned to upgrade the dilapidated depot, which originally opened in 1947 as a trolley yard starting, next year, but community demands to convert the site into a memorial shut that down. Before that the land — once home to Harlem’s first house of worship, the ­Elmendorf Reformed Church, from 1665 until 1869 — started as a cemetery after Peter Stuyvesant ordered African slaves to build a 9-mile road from lower Manhattan to what was then an unincorporated part of the city known as “Nieuw Haarlem.”

There’s also plans to develop residential property along with the African slave memorial. A city councilman told the NY Post “We want to make sure that this piece of history — an important part of New York City history — will be preserved.”

This is definitely absurd. It’s crazy how everything in the dark truly does come to the light. i bet the officers didn’t think this picture would surface. Sources say that this is the official picture taken of the now deceased Sandra Bland and not the one that has been previously floating around the net.

What are your thoughts? How does this make you feel?
