From Son of Slaves to the Father of Black Nationalism: Do You Know Martin Delany? | Urban Intellectuals

I wasn’t up on him myself…

Martin Delany was a Civil Rights activist, author, editor, and doctor who came into this world on May 6, 1812. Born in Charles Town, West Virginia, as the son of slaves, his grandfather on his father’s side was a village chieftain while his grandfather on his mother’s side was known as a Mandingo prince.

The Secret to Keeping Black Men Healthy? Maybe Black Doctors – The New York Times

Why would we listen to anyone else but us when it comes to the health of us?? We have no allies and even some of “us” mean us no good…

Black men have the lowest life expectancy of any ethnic group in the United States. Much of the gap is explained by greater rates of chronic illnesses such as diabetes and heart disease, which afflict poor and poorly educated black men in particular.
