    In the Spirit of Sankofa,



    ... All beauty and no brains:facepalm: ... Family, we've got our work cut out of us, for real. The great granddaughter of Hosea Williams:wow:

    Hosea Lorenzo Williams (January 5, 1926 – November 16, 2000) was a United States civil rightsleader, ordained minister, businessman, philanthropist, scientist, andpolitician. He may be best known as a trusted member of fellow famed civil rights activist and Nobel Peace Prizewinner Martin Luther King, Jr.'s inner circle. Under the banner of their flagship organization, the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, King depended on Williams to organize and stir masses of people intononviolent direct action in the myriad of protest campaigns they waged against racial, political, economic, and social injustice.

    Porsha Stewart Thought the Underground Railroad Was a Real Train: How Did the Real Housewives of Atlanta React?

    [​IMG]

    The 32-year-old visited a landmark church with holes in the floor, which were used for ventilation on the Underground Railroad (as led by Harriet Tubman) during the pre-Civil War era. The group's tour guide said they still don't know how groups of escaped slaves managed to get in and out from the crawl space.
    Stewart, whose great grandfather was civil rights leader Hosea Williams, quickly piped in with her thoughts on the matter.
    "Well, there has to be an opening for a railroad at some point," she said. "Because somebody's driving the train. It's not electric like what we have now."

    I can't say I am surprised.

    She is, IMO, the most air-headed one on the show. I don't even know why she is on there to be honest, she bores me.

    Its bad enough for any black person not to know there were no trains involved, but she is the great granddaughter of civil rights activist, Hosea Williams; this makes it extra hard to accept.

    Her mother seems to busy babying her and helping her get a "good" husband. Apparently, the focus was on the wrong thing. Poor girl, I feel sorry for her.
