The New York Renaissance

The New York Renaissance, also known as the Renaissance Big Five and as the Rens, was an all-black professional basketball team established on February 13, 1923, by Robert “Bob” Douglas in agreement with the Renaissance Casino and Ballroom. The Casino and Ballroom at 138th Street and Seventh Avenue in Harlem was an entertainment complex including a ballroom that served as the Big Five’s home court. Following each game, a dance took place. The success of the Rens shifted the focus of black basketball from amateur teams to professional teams. Initially, the Rens played mostly in Harlem, but by the end of the 1920s, as attendance began to dwindle, the team could be found more often playing on the road, barnstorming across the country out of necessity. The Renaissance is also the topic of the 2011 documentary On the Shoulders of Giants. #africanhistory365 #africanexcellence

You’ll Never Look At Black Eyed Peas The Same

Ainโ€™t nothing better than a plate of soulful black-eyed peas over rice, served with cornbread and collard greens. But youโ€™ll be surprised to learn where black-eyed peas actually came from and how they affect your health.

Black-eyed peas originate in West Africa, and are believed to have first been domesticated near Lake Chad in what is now northeastern Nigeria and northern Cameroon. The earthy legume was brought to the Americas on slave ships via the Middle Passage, where Africans in the South continued to include them as a staple in their diets, including being a cherished New Yearโ€™s Day tradition.

Did you know that black-eyed peas are tasty little fat burners? Low in calories and fat, they make a delicious addition to any weight loss plan – half a cup has less than 100 calories. Managing your weight through eating powerful superfoods, like black-eyed peas, lowers your risk of developing conditions like heart disease, diabetes, and depression.

Like most beans, black-eyed peas are a great source of protein, providing energy and supporting the growth of body parts like hair, skin, and nails, and it helps in cell repair. Because of this, they are a great alternative to meat protein.

Lacking iron is no fun – you feel weak and fatigued all the time. But look no further than black-eyed peas, which are full of iron, which carries oxygen to your cells, organs, and muscles. Black-eyed peas are some of the most folate-rich foods you can eat, and folate may cut your risk of pancreatic cancer. Folate is also a very important nutrient for women during pregnancy.

Lastly, if you have high blood pressure, then get some black-eyed peas in your life. Full of potassium, these beans keep your blood pressure in check. Black-eyed peas are a staple across the diaspora and are great for your health – no wonder they are believed to bring prosperity! Consider black-eyed peas in your next meal.

Chancellor Williams

Chancellor Williams (December 22, 1893 โ€“ December 7, 1992) was an African-American sociologist, historian and writer. He is noted for his work on African civilizations prior to encounters with Europeans; his major work is The Destruction of Black Civilization. Williams remains a key figure in the Afrocentrist discourse. He is among the many historians who assert that Ancient Egypt was predominantly a black civilization.
After working for a while, Williams entered college at Howard University. He earned a BA in Education, followed by a MA in History. After completing a doctoral dissertation on the socioeconomic significance of the storefront church movement in the US since 1920, he was awarded a Ph.D. in sociology by American University.
In 1935 Williams started as Administrative Principal for the Cheltenham School for Boys in MD. Four years later he became a teacher in the DC public schools. With WW II imminent, he entered the civil service system in the Federal government in 1941, serving as section chief of the Census Bureau, a statistician for War Relocation Board, and an economist in Office of Price Administration.
In 1946 he returned to his alma mater Howard University as a social science instructor, teaching until 1952. He transferred to the history department. By the 1960s, he was lecturing and writing about African history from a position of Afrocentrism. He concentrated on African civilizations before the European encounter, and was one of a group of scholars who asserted that Egypt had been a black civilization. He was a scholar at Howard until his retirement in 1966. Afterward, he continued his studies and writing. #africanhistory365 #africanexcellence
