3 Animations You Can Support

Warning, use of profanity. 

Kariba: The synopsis is brilliant, and is rooted in realism; the dam created in Nubia/North Sudan, displaced a lot of Nubians. In addition to that, destroying pieces from the past of ancient Nubian culture. Some of the artifacts had to be evacuated to a different country. This fantasy teaser is not only stunning with an underlining social commentary, but it will empower little Black/African girls; by seeing themselves in such a light. A light of courage and fighting against any obstacle put in front of you, no matter how big they seem.

Tephlon Funk: A series created by Stephane Metayer about a young girl from Queensbridge who’s life turns upside down. It’s heavily inspired by both Hip Hop & Japanese Anime. The words “Tephlon Funk!” is a state of mind which means to be strong and stand out.”

Stylish, sleek, with some old school flavor and extremely smart. The use of Hip Hop as their instrument, and how it is intertwined within the fabric of Tephlon Funk is indeed ‘Dope’.

E.X.O The Legend of Wale Williams: Tricked into returning home to Nigeria after a five year absence, an impetuous young man named Wale (pronounced Wah-leh) Williams embarks on a journey to investigate his father’s mysterious disappearance. His only clue is a cryptic Nanosuit left behind for him by his father, a suit which grants superhuman abilities. As he comes to understand the suit’s powers, Wale realizes he must restore hope to the city by preventing catastrophic attacks from the sociopathic extremist, Oniku.”

An heroic tale of a man trying to defend the city that he loves and carry on his father’s mantle. I love the look and feel of E.X.O, and its’ futuristic style. Keep in mind the video trailer is not the final cut, and the final production will be visually breathtaking. This is why E.X.O grabs the number 3 spot for me.

Black Americans: American West, Cowboys & Towns Part 2

Eatonville: The Oldest Black Town
in America

A hundred years ago, in communities across the U.S., white residents forced thousands of black families to flee their homes. Even a century later, these towns remain almost entirely white.

One correction; Eatonville ‘ISN’T’ the first Black town, there were many during and before slavery as well.

Freedmen’s Town, Texas: Houston’s
‘Little Harlem’


A victim of gentrification – like so many traditionally Black neighborhoods throughout the Americas – in the 1990s, a large swath of North Dallas’ Freedman’s Town (which, by this time, people were calling “North Dallas” or “State-Thomas”) was taken for the building of the Central Expressway (U.S. Highway 75). But as construction of the Expressway began, workers dug up remains from what had been a cemetery established by African Americans.

The Freedman’s Cemetery is known to hold the remains of more than 7,000 African Americans and the construction of the Central Expressway unearthed numerous burial artifacts. Because of community activism, those artifacts were collected and today are part of the permanent collection of Dallas’ Historic Fair Park African American Museum http://www.aamdallas.org/.

Those visiting Dallas, Texas can also visit what remains of the Freedman’s Memorial Cemetery at the intersection of Lemmon Avenue and North Central Expressway. It is a historic landmark that is a monument to Dallas’ early African American citizens. Graced by striking bronze statues created by the artist David S. Newton, the Freedman’s Cemetery is maintained by the Freedman’s Cemetery Memorial Foundation http://freedmansfoundation.org/.

Our history

From the 1820’s to the 1951; most of these towns, cities, and districts were destroyed by the government, and bigotry. There are so many to showcase, but I’ll stop at this point.
