Thank you for sharing this! I've long known of her but it is always a joy to hear her play.
Just came across her story yesterday...HOW THEY DON'T TEACH BLACK CHILDREN ABOUT PEOPLE LIKE HER IN SCHOOLS???????????
Well, you know as well as I do that job is up to us to pass it too them.
Isabel Washington was the 1st wife of Adam Clayton Powell Jr.
Hazel Scott was his 2nd wife.
I went an all black high school in states and would you believe African American studies was offered as an elective? i don't remember what made me take that class (i didn't need it to graduate)but that is how i got introduced to Prof. Elkahti's work. This might sound a bit crass but we learned more about the holocaust than the transatlantic slave trade in my mandatory history classes, there is something wrong with that picture....even when learning about the Holocaust the focus was on the Jews ONLY
Heck i didn't even know Hitler also killed Africans until years later after i graduated!
Yep, Hitler also killed Blacks of mixed German heritage.
Those he didn't have killed, he STERILIZED them so they couldn't not reproduce and further "weaken" the so-called "superior Aryan race."
And not only those of the so-called "Jewish" faith but also Jehovah's Witnesses as well because they refused to serve in the Nazi military or to give allegiance to the Nazi Regime.
