Made a brother work.You kill a stereotype with the truth:
Know your truth
was a man who refused to beat black women.
was a man who refused to tell on other slaves.
was a man who would put cotton in other slaves’ bags at night, so that they wouldn’t get beat!
was a man who helped 100 slaves get free long before the underground railroad.
was a man, that once free, established the 1st Laborers school for other fugitive slaves!
# was an author, abolitionist, and minister. Born into slavery, in Port Tobacco, Charles County, Maryland, he escaped to Upper Canada in 1830, and founded a settlement and laborer’s school for other fugitive slaves at Dawn, near Dresden, in Kent County, Upper Canada, of British Canada.
So stop calling these sell-outs Uncle tom! That’s a compliment! Its Sambo that was the sell-out, who would do anything for his slave masters’ approval!

Great story, look at all of those beautiful black people. I love being black.
So back in the day Black people had to sit in the back of the bus and if there were not enough seats available then had to wait for next bus or not go. State Board exams for Cosmetologist were always held in Austin, Texas. Well the students at Franklin Beauty were prepared to take their state board exam to become licensed Cosmetologist in the State of Texas. Since they didn't allow but 1 or 2 black students to purchase tickets for the bus to Austin, Texas my grandfather charted his own bus & took them all. The cool thing is they all passed the exam 34 students. #Legendary #JHJemison #BronzeMayor #FranklinBeauty #TexasHistory #nevergiveup #noexcuses
