Oysters are as much an African American food story as the ham bones and hominy grits that enslaved people ate. Along the East Coast, African Americans worked on schooners as hired captains, operators, and crew. #APeoplesJourney

MEMBER SPOTLIGHT: Tasha Edwards from Alabama. Member since '13. “As an African-American woman in my 40s and not a size two,” says Tasha, “I put myself in positions where there has been a stereotype and I work really hard to create a new narrative.”

Latino and African American history is American history! It's time that our children learn about their community's contributions to America and learn the stories of great leaders that look like them. #RepresentationMatters 

Nearly 30 years ago, 15-year-old African American twins, Dannette and Jeannette Millbrook, vanished. Their case remains cold to this day. Now, @oxygen  is taking another look. The Disappearance of The Millbrook Twins starts Saturday, November 23 at 7/6c. #TheMillbrookTwins

Badly failing presidential candidate @KamalaHarris  will not go to a very wonderful largely African American event today because yesterday I recieved a major award, at the same event, for being able to produce & sign into law major Criminal Justice Reform legislation, which will..

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!

....greatly help the African American community (and all other communities), and which was unable to get done in past administrations despite a tremendous desire for it. This and best unemployment numbers EVER is more than Kamala will EVER be able to do for African Americans!

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!

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 

....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!

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!

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!”
