Celebrate Black History Month 2021 through film and conversations hosted by Milwaukee Film and Black Lens. Presented by Molson Coors!
Black history is an integral part of Milwaukee’s history. When you honor one, you elevate them both. Feb. 1 isn’t just the first day of Black History Month. It’s also National Freedom Day, pioneered by a former slave to commemorate abolition.
Today is a day to let freedom ring, because it’s officially National Freedom Day. February First, 1865, is the day President Lincoln signed the 13th amendment, outlawing slavery in the United States. It is time to spread equality, goodwill, brotherhood and appreciate freedom. It’s time to spread good messages and say hello to everyone and celebrate freedom. It’s time to remember some great quotes from the nation’s leaders, who made many sacrifices for the country.
The strength of any nation lies in Unity. Let’s join hands and make our country more prosperous and peaceful.
Let’s celebrate our Freedom Day with a free mind and the pride of our soul. Greetings on Freedom Day to you and your family.
We salute our country and compatriots for giving us the gift of freedom. Warm wishes on the Freedom Day of our country.
Let us celebrate this auspicious day with great zeal by saluting our soldiers and our warm wishes as a national hero on National Freedom Day!
National Freedom Day is celebrated in the United States of America on February 1. This is observed in honor of then-President Abraham Lincoln, who abolished slavery. Freedom to think and express yourself…. Mental freedom…. They are important for a happy and healthy life…. We salute our country and compatriots for giving us the gift of freedom… Kind regards to you on Freedom Day in our country.
What is now known as Black History Month, was first celebrated on this date as Negro History Week by Carter G. Woodson. It became a month long celebration.
For diabetes, this unique oil is capable of lowering the sugar rate by 30% after just 2 weeks! Natural Polyphenols and Hydroxytyrosol. 30 times more effective to protect your heart against LDL oxidation.
OLIVIE Plus 30x is an organic, first cold press, extra virgin olive oil that is 30x richer in polyphenols hydroxytyrosol than regular extra virgin olive oil. One tablespoon a day provides the required levels of polyphenols to give health benefits against oxidative stress (according to the EFSA), over and well above conventional olive oils. Polyphenols are a group of over 500 phytochemicals, which are naturally occurring micronutrients in plants. These compounds give a plant its colour and can help to protect it from various dangers. When you eat plants with polyphenols, you reap the health benefits as well.
A major ingredient in extra virgin olive oil polyphenols are considered to be one of the best health enhancing benefits within the oil. Polyphenols typically act as antioxidants. They can help prevent cellular damage from free radicals that occur with pollution, smoking, eating rancid foods, and as a by-product of normal metabolism. It’s also thought that polyphenols contribute to keep the body being in an anti-inflammatory state.
This is also associated with a lower risk of several chronic diseases. The high polyphenol content in extra virgin olive oil is dependent on three factors. First is the variety of the olive, secondly the climate and terroir of the growing region and thirdly the actual time in the growing season that the crop is harvested. Simply because this oil comes from olive trees planted in a harsh rocky desert. Just like the wine, it is well known that the olive tree needs to suffer to produce the best of itself.
Considering the very hot environment (up to 53°C or 127°F in summer), the rocky soil where roots cannot develop easily, the lack of water, olive trees stress. A panic phenomenon occurs in the trees (instinct of survival), which results in a raised production of polyphenols (antioxidant) and more particularly in Hydroxytyrosol and Tyro sol it’s self defense.
There has been a long debate about the ability of plants to uptake humic substances through their root systems and to metabolize them. There is now a consensus about how humus plays a hormonal role rather than simply a nutritional role in plant physiology. Olive trees grown in ‘challenging’ conditions encourage the uptake of naturally occurring phenols in the soil. This in turn aids the circulatory system within the olive tree, with the phenols eventually finding their way to the olive fruit itself. As the olives age on the tree, the color of the olive changes to red and then black, the size of the olive increases thus producing more oil, but the polyphenol level decreases. There is a great deal of expertise within the farming community where we source our oil to ensure that the harvest is collected at the optimum time to maximize the polyphenol levels.
The analysis of OLIVIE PLUS 30x extra virgin olive oil produced by Atlas Olive Oils showed that this oil is naturally rich in polyphenols and particularly in Hydroxytyrosol with content of 233 mg/kg, and also in Tyrosol with content of 161 mg/kg. Hydroxytyrosol is the most powerful antioxidant easily assimilated by the human body.
96-year-old stage and screen icon Cicely Tyson opens up to Gayle King about her impressive career and personal life, which she wrote about in her new memoir, “Just As I Am.”

“Just As I Am is my truth. It is me, plain and unvarnished, with the glitter and garland set aside. In these pages, I am indeed Cicely, the actress who has been blessed to grace the stage and screen for six decades. Yet I am also the church girl who once rarely spoke a word. I am the teenager who sought solace in the verses of the old hymn for which this book is named. I am a daughter and mother, a sister, and a friend. I am an observer of human nature and the dreamer of audacious dreams. I am a woman who has hurt as immeasurably as I have loved, a child of God divinely guided by His hand. And here in my ninth decade, I am a woman who, at long last, has something meaningful to say.” – Cicely Tyson
The Negro Baseball Leagues were professional leagues in the United States for players of African descent. At its height of popularity–from 1920 through World War II, Negro Baseball Leagues were an integral part of African-American life and culture during the Jim Crow Era.
But who were prominent players in the Negro Baseball leagues? How did their work as athletes help keep audiences mesmerized season after season?
In 1947, Jackie Robinson became the first African-American to integrate major league baseball. Historian Doris Kearns Goodwin argues that Robinson’s ability to desegregate the Major League Baseball “allowed black and white Americans to be more respectful and open to one another and more appreciative of everyone’s abilities.”
Yet Robinson did not begin his career as a baseball player in the Major Leagues. Instead, he began his career two years earlier by playing with the Kansas City Monarchs. In his first year as a player, Robinson was part of the 1945 Negro League All-Star Game. As a member of the Kansas City Monarchs, Robinson played 47 games as a shortstop, registered 13 stolen bases and hit .387 with five home runs.
Satchel Paige begins his career as a baseball player in 1924 when he joins the Mobile Tigers. Two years later, Paige made his debut in the Negro Baseball Leagues by playing with the Chattanooga Black Lookouts.
Soon, Paige was playing with the Negro National League Teams and was considered a popular player amongst audience members. Playing for teams throughout the United States, Paige also played in Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico and Mexico.
Paige once described his technique as: “I got bloopers, loopers and droppers. I got a jump ball, a be ball, a screw ball, a wobbly ball, a whipsy-dipsy-do, a hurry-up ball, a nothin’ ball and a bat dodger. My be ball is a be ball ’cause it ‘be’ right were I want it, high and inside. It wiggles like a worm. Some I throw with my knuckles, some with two fingers. My whips-dipsy-do is a special fork ball I throw underhand and sidearm that slithers and sinks. I keep my thumb off the ball and use three fingers. The middle finger sticks up high, like a bent fork.”
In between seasons, Paige organized the “Satchel Paige All-Stars.” New York Yankess player Joe DiMaggio once said that Paige was “the best and fastest pitcher I ever faced.”
By 1942, Paige was the highest-paid African-American baseball player.
Six years later, in 1948, Paige became the oldest rookie in Major League Baseball.
Joshua “Josh” Gibson was one of the stars of the Negro Baseball Leagues. Known as the “Black Babe Ruth,” Gibson is considered one of the best power hitters and catchers in baseball history.
Gibson made his debut in the Negro Baseball Leagues by playing for the Homestead Grays. Soon after, he played for the Pittsburgh Crawfords. He also played in the Dominican Republic for Ciudad Trujillo and the Mexican League for Rojos del Aguila de Veracruz. Gibson also served as the manager of the Santurce Crabbers, a team affiliated with the Puerto Rico Baseball League.
In 1972, Gibson was the second player to be inducted in the National Baseball Hall of Fame.
Gibson was born on December 21, 1911 in Georgia. His family moved to Pittsburgh as part of the Great Migration. Gibson died on January 20, 1947 after suffering from a stroke.

When Carter G. Woodson established Negro History week in 1926, he realized the importance of providing a theme to focus the attention of the public. The intention has never been to dictate or limit the exploration of the Black experience, but to bring to the public’s attention important developments that merit emphasis.
The black family has been a topic of study in many disciplines—history, literature, the visual arts and film studies, sociology, anthropology, and social policy. Its representation, identity, and diversity have been reverenced, stereotyped, and vilified from the days of slavery to our own time. The black family knows no single location, since family reunions and genetic-ancestry searches testify to the spread of family members across states, nations, and continents. Not only are individual black families diasporic, but Africa and the diaspora itself have been long portrayed as the black family at large. While the role of the black family has been described by some as a microcosm of the entire race, its complexity as the “foundation” of African American life and history can be seen in numerous debates over how to represent its meaning and typicality from a historical perspective.

The Catholic Church recognizes at least three different saints named Valentine or Valentinus, all of whom were martyred. One legend contends that Valentine was a priest who served during the third century in Rome. When Emperor Claudius II decided that single men made better soldiers than those with wives and families, he outlawed marriage for young men. Valentine, realizing the injustice of the decree, defied Claudius and continued to perform marriages for young lovers in secret. When Valentine’s actions were discovered, Claudius ordered that he be put to death. Still others insist that it was Saint Valentine of Terni, a bishop, who was the true namesake of the holiday. He, too, was beheaded by Claudius II outside Rome.
