SALUTE!!!

When the history of medicine and science is told in the world, the prowess and achievements of Black people are so numerous. Being descendants of the first humans on earth, the average Black man has the mental ability to be an inventor in many fields.
In light of the above, Dr. Samuel Lee Kountz’s achievements in the field of medicine fully show the contributions of the Black man to the advancement of humanity. He was born in the state of Arkansas, US, in 1930, and grew up to hold three professional diplomas in agriculture, mechanical and chemical engineering respectively. He went on to become the first black person to be admitted into the University of Arkansas Medical school, through a scholarship.

Wow...more lost or hidden Black history😢

Sitting down and taking a stand
Here at the National Civil Rights Museum in Memphis, Tennessee, you can sit down next to a sculpture of civil rights icon Rosa Parks, who was born on this day in 1913. Parks was arrested in 1955 for refusing to give up her seat to a white passenger on a segregated bus in Montgomery, Alabama. Her defiant action sparked the Montgomery Bus Boycott, one of the longest and most successful movements against racial segregation in our nation’s history. At the time, African Americans made up most of the ridership on Montgomery city buses. The year-long protest finally ended when the US Supreme Court ruled that Alabama’s laws enforcing segregation on city buses and other modes of transportation were unconstitutional.
