Memorial Day

Memorial Day was started by Black People on May, 1, 1865 in Charleston, SC to honor 257 dead Union Soldiers who had been buried in a mass grave in a Confederate prison camp. They dug up the bodies and worked for 2 weeks to give them a proper burial as gratitude for fighting for their freedom. They then held a parade of 10,000 people led by 2,800 Black children where they marched, sang and celebrated.


The Zinn Education Project published an article about Memorial Day, or “Decoration Day”, written by David W. Blight. According to him, "The First Decoration Day" was led by people who had recently been freed from slavery in Charleston, SC on May 1, 1865.

At the end of the Civil War, "Thousands of black Charlestonians, most former slaves, remained in the city and conducted a series of commemorations to declare their sense of the meaning of the war. The largest of these events, and unknown until some extraordinary luck in my recent research, took place on May 1, 1865. During the final year of the war, the Confederates had converted the planters’ horse track, the Washington Race Course and Jockey Club, into an outdoor prison. Union soldiers were kept in horrible conditions in the interior of the track; at least 257 died of exposure and disease and were hastily buried in a mass grave behind the grandstand. Some twenty-eight black workmen went to the site, re-buried the Union dead properly, and built a high fence around the cemetery. They whitewashed the fence and built an archway over an entrance on which they inscribed the words, “Martyrs of the Race Course.” "

Black Soldiers who gave their salaries to establish Lincoln College as a Historical Black University for Agriculture


Here is another account…

"Memorial Day holds a special place for many Americans, especially those who serve in the nation’s military. While past and current members of the armed forces are most certainly honored, what few realize is that the practice of celebrating America’s soldiers gained popularity due to a group of freed Blacks in the South.

 In the town of Charleston in South Carolina, the celebration of what was called “Decoration Day” was held to give respects to fallen soldiers from the Union ...Army in the North. The Civil War ended on April 9, 1865, with the Union victorious over its Confederate foes. In order to celebrate the victory and honor the dead, on May 1 of that year around 10,000 freed Black men and women gathered in historic Hampton Park.

 The group placed flowers on the graves of unknown soldiers, a practice held often in times of war. The event caught the attention of the nation, and it was largely understood by Whites to be a celebration of the Emancipation Proclamation passing in 1863. However, it was far more than that for those gathered. The town was a Confederate stronghold, and over 250 soldiers died as prisoners there as Union forces began to overtake the region. The Confederate soldiers buried the dead in unmarked graves and fled in fear. The freed Blacks who came to the Decoration Day event viewed those soldiers as martyrs who died selflessly for their freedom. While their were Black soldiers in the Union Army, the celebration was in honor of all who fought for the winning side.

 David Blight, a history professor at Yale University, has credited the Black population of Charleston as the inventors of the first Memorial Day celebration although other cities have made similar claims in attempts to dispute Blight’s research. Still, most historians agree that it is at least the first widely recognized celebration of fallen soldiers in history."

Indigo Youth Arising







Our Indigo Youth are arising from the ashes 
Of the Age of Pisces

Every Age provides the ONE
They are the KRST child
12/12/12 launched the rising of the New Age

We must prepare the way for the Aquarian KRST 
The KRST Child is in all of our Indigo Children



KRST is Ka Ra Sa Ta

*the Spirit Enlightened Protector of Eartha

Leadership of every age

Have always sent their emissaries

To slaughter the KRST


Our Youth are marchin in their sufferin

From the Post-Traumatic Stress

Of the neo slavery -Prison Industrial Complex
Yes our youth are showing their @$$es 
To expose the underground economy... 
Our youth have been the walking wounded,

Sagging IS NOT JUST A FASHION STATEMENT!
Our Youth have been lowering their flags at half-mast for the past 30 years
As an SOS on Police corruption, injustice, homicides,

Slaughter, mass incarcerations and Genocides
Of their families and friends

Yes Saggin- Spelled backwards = Niggas 
To those youth who have lost their way
Following a crowd who are caught up in
The normalizing of criminal actions


Caught up in the World Wide Web of
The CoIntelPro criminal "In-Just U.S." system,
From the Preschool to Prison pipeline to be child soldiers
To Super Predator Police and the military industrial complex.
I'm not saying that I condone this behavior-
But I also cannot condemn our young men (Or Women) either

We must embrace and Breathe life into our youth
And use each teachable moment to engage and connect with them.
I am a homeschool Resource Teacher,
I live within my students neighborhoods.
I tutor, read, feed and teach STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Industrial Arts and Mathematics) through urban agriculture at Amen Ankh Akademy. 






As nature, has a cure for every illness, Our Black Youth have gone feral,
From the Mis-Education, and mundane delusions of
Patriotism, integration-ism, assimilation-ism, and Capitalism,
From the Corporatakrazy Racism-system
Following the white rabbit middle class values
Of a society of non-colored sheeple
Who try to control and exploit our Indigo people. 

Our Youth think our elders have failed them and left them for “def”-in da Hood,
In the aftermath of a decade of civil rights movement
To economic integration, by the Corporate Prison invasion and perpetual wars




Of  the G.O.D. of Guns Oil and Drugs and the penalty disparities between Cocaine and Crack. 
Religion is like putting a finger band aid on a leg amputation
Although prayer is positive,
Our youth need more than hope, 
While their Economic bloodlines are gushing down the blood red streets full of dope.

Our Indigo Youth are generating their own freedom structures
Transforming within the background of the underground economy, despite of the odds against them.


Government officials implemented the destruction of the Indigo Americans after the many economic gains, through the Civil Rights movement in the 1970s. Co-Intel-Pro (Counter Intelligence Programming)
was implemented by the Korporatakrazy of the US.
They financed Gangster Rap
To become the Pied Piper human trap;
Luring our youth to a Pinocchio Piccadilly Circus.
To be mauled by Killer Klown Kops- who are worthless tools, used to
fill the Mass Incarceration/Prison industrial complex or Lynching and publicly executing our youth as martyred sacrificial lambs, with impunity. They are involved with Gun running Drugs, Prostitution, gambling, Organs harvesting, Abortions, Poisoned Food and Water, Man made STDs and plagues, human trafficking, drug mules, and sacrificing our young women into showing their @$$es, as sex slaves.


Now conscious Hip Hop Culture has become that Nu-cypher,
Our KRSTs are moving to a green environmental movement
That Thang,
That lantern, pathway 
That talking drum,
That light in the tunnel, for all youth around Mama Eartha.
Taking on the accountability to the ecosystem
And their role in the sustainability of the Planet.
Ha Le Lu Yah

Their Truth is Marching on!

Artist Visionary Cyrus Kabiru Is Breathing New Life From His Surroundings

Artist Visionary Cyrus Kabiru is breathing new life into his surroundings.

  A self-taught sculptor and painter, Kabiru is crafting visually striking artwork from abandoned refuse he collects from the streets of the Kenyan capital.
 

 "When I woke up every morning, the first thing I'd see was trash," recalls Kabiru, whose childhood home faced a garbage heap where all of Nairobi's waste was dumped in Kenya. "I used to say to my dad that when I grow up, I want to give trash a second chance."

And that's exactly what he went on to do.

Cyrus Kabiru's Optical Art is the most fascinating use of re-purposed materials. As the eyes are the light of the soul, Kabiru has reflected and transported the discarded technology of the western world into a bold transmorgrification.

Using wires, spoons and bottle tops, his artistry gains a new lease of life for found refuse materials as vital components of his art pieces. His art depicts the concept of looking at the world through rose colored glasses. He has been able to see trash as treasure, yet more to the idea of peering through the looking glasses and seeing the majic of life and environment.
 






 



 
Kabiru has created other pieces besides his Optical art...
 


 
 
We all have an accountability to the planet. All of the trash, like dirty water going down the drain effect the planet in another part of the world. These pieces of plastic, plastic bottles, plastic wrappers, plastic medicine containers, bottle tops, Plastic Cigarette lighters, foam meat trays, medical viales and tubing, Latex gloves, spent diabetes needles, broken television monitors, shoe foam inserts, spent batteries, Polyester, acrylic and nylon clothing, soda cans, water bottles, broken television monitors, car parts etc, etc.





PLASTIC DOES NOT BIODEGRADE BACK INTO THE ENVIRONMENT! They represent our toxic waste and a gigantic carbon footprint from each individual, in a consumer society. So many of these plastic fragments are eaten by birds and toxic fluids are consumed by fish. So many animals are choking, suffocating and caught in plastic.
This is the view of Cyrus Kibiru. Since his childhood he had the view of a garbage mountain of emperialistic conspicuous consumerism waste. Through all of the toxic slop, he has made something beautiful.
