Vanderbilt announces that a portion of Nashville’s 25th Avenue, which cuts through campus, will be named Perry Wallace Way. Wallace was the first African-American to play basketball in the SEC, in 1967. @trublu24  helped to make this happen, with his great work about Mr. Wallace.

Black Codes were laws passed in 1865 & 1866 by Southern states after the American Civil War in order to restrict the freedom of African Americans. These laws allowed for police to make arrests for minor infractions and force black people into involuntary servitude. #Jamestown400

At 11 a.m. @AngelaDavisWCCO  will be talking about health disparities African-American women and their babies face and the growing body of research suggesting racism plays a role.

Castro told VICE News that he'll continue highlighting Biden’s support of policies that resulted in a high rate of African American men in prison. “People are going to have to address the effects of the ‘94 crime bill"

Allen and other researchers are documenting such cases as they search for the cause of stark birth disparities among African-American women and their babies. Read more about their research here:

African-Americans in general — but also African-American women in particular — report significant mistreatment within the health care system, and they attribute that mistreatment to racial discrimination” said @dramaninj  a health expert @UCBerkeley 

“The overwhelmingly white audience [Buttigieg] drew to the event in a historic black neighborhood reinforced the difficulty the Democratic presidential hopeful has had in connecting with African American voters.”

'As Democrats vie for African American votes, the black church is paying attention,' write Leah Daughtry and Michael McBride. "Gaining our vote requires gaining more than a cursory understanding of who we are as a people," Daughtry and McBride continue.

....a look, the facts speak far louder than words! The Democrats always play the Race Card, when in fact they have done so little for our Nation’s great African American people. Now, lowest unemployment in U.S. history, and only getting better. Elijah Cummings has failed badly!

Very disappointed in Prime Minister Stefan Löfven for being unable to act. Sweden has let our African American Community down in the United States. I watched the tapes of A$AP Rocky, and he was being followed and harassed by troublemakers. Treat Americans fairly! #FreeRocky 

I am proud to have fought for and secured the LOWEST African American and Hispanic unemployment rates in history. Now I’m pushing for prison reform to give people who have paid their debt to society a second chance. I will never stop fighting for ALL Americans!

Under the Trump Administration, African American unemployment is the lowest (best) in the history of the United States. No President has come close to doing this before! I also created successful Opportunity Zones. Waiting for Nancy and Elijah to say, “Thank you, Mr. President!”

....The fact is that African/American unemployment is now the lowest in the history of our country. Same with Asian, Hispanic and almost every other group. The Democrats have been all talk and no action. My Administration has already produced like no other, and everyone sees it!

9 years ago today, Barack Obama was elected the first African-American President of the United States.

We are here to honor the extraordinary contributions of African-Americans to every aspect of American Life, History and Culture. From the earliest days of this Nation, African-American Leaders, Pioneers, & Visionaries have uplifted & inspired our Country...

Thank you to Kanye West and the fact that he is willing to tell the TRUTH. One new and great FACT - African American unemployment is the lowest ever recorded in the history of our Country. So honored by this. Thank you Kanye for your support. It is making a big difference!

So if African-American unemployment is now at the lowest number in history, median income the highest, and you then add all of the other things I have done, how do Democrats, who have done NOTHING for African-Americans but TALK, win the Black Vote? And it will only get better!

African American unemployment is the lowest ever recorded in our country. The Hispanic unemployment rate dropped a full point in the last year and is close to the lowest in recorded history. Dems did nothing for you but get your vote! #NeverForget
