  • #WomensHistoryMonth Zora Neale Hurston’s (1891-1960) literary work chronicles life in the American South, particularly the racial and gender struggles she witnessed and experienced first hand. Her novel “Their Eyes Were Watching God” quickly became a feature of the Harlem Renaissance. #womenshistorymonth Zora Neale Hurston’s (1891-1960) literary work chronicles life in the American South, particularly the racial and gender struggles she witnessed and experienced first hand.

  • Reposted from @africanarchives -  Black people did not “come to this country seeking a better life.” They were kidnapped from their homes in Africa, dragged in chains and loaded onto slave ships--treated not like human beings but like things, commodities to be traded and used to enrich others. Tens of millions of enslaved Africans died before even reaching America, so terrible were the conditions on the slave ships. Those who survived the trip and were then sold to plantation owners. #BlackHistory #BlackLivesMatter #Slavery - #regrann Reposted from @africanarchives - Black people did not “come to this country seeking a better life.” They were kidnapped from their homes in Africa, dragged in chains and loaded onto slave ships--treated not like human beings but like things, commodities to be traded and used to enrich others.

Sculpture and educator Dr. Selma Burke was one of ten children born to a Methodist minister in rural North Carolina. When she was a child, Selma would mold the soft clay of the riverbanks into small figures. In the 1920s, Burke became one of the few African American women to achieve fame during the Harlem Renaissance, which brought many black male artists and writers to the nation's attention. She later taught at the Harlem Community Art Center and founded the Selma Burke Art School in New York City and the Selma Burke Art Center in Pittsburgh. Burke is most famous for her 1944 relief Franklin Delano Roosevelt, which inspired the Roosevelt dime.
・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・
Committed to teaching art to others, Burke established the Selma Burke Art School in New York City in 1946 and subsequently opened the Selma Burke Art Center in Pittsburgh, Pa.・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・
She was educated at Slater Industrial and State Normal School, now Winston-Salem State University; St. Agnes School of Nursing, Raleigh; and Women's Medical College, Philadelphia.
・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・
In 1944, President Roosevelt posed for the artist and her completed bronze plaque was unveiled by President Harry S. Truman in 1945. It can be seen at the Recorder of Deeds Building in Washington, D.C.; the image was also used on the American ten cent piece (dime). Since the coin bears the initials of the engraver, John Sinnock, Selma Burke has never received proper credit for the portrait. ・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・
At the age of 80, in 1980, Burke produced her last monumental work, a statue of Martin Luther King, Jr., that graces Marshall Park in Charlotte, North Carolina.・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・
Dr. Burke's artistic works were not fully acknowledged during her life time. Her pieces can be viewed in the Metropolitan and Whitney museums. Selma Burke died in 1995.

Charles Watkins and Shirnetrius Robinson were a typical working couple who wanted to venture into entrepreneurship after recognizing dead ends in their careers.  Sharing a love for beautiful timepieces, they decided to do some research on the watch industry. What they noticed was that the designs were repetitive and overpriced.  From there, Vieryl Watches was created!
