What's up every one!
It's episode 9 of Amythe7th! This one is all about my trip to Birmingham, AL! If you don't know, NABJ (National Association of Black Journalists) is one of the largest gatherings of black people in America. Around 4,000 of us, all over the country, networked in Alabama last week.
I learned so much about the historical city. I also learned a lot about myself! And of course I networked!
My favorite parts was meeting Sarah Collins- Rudolph! She's the lone survivor of the 16th Street Baptist Church Bombing in Sept. 15, 1963. Four black girls ages 14 and 11 were killed in the basement. She survived with glass shards leaving her partially blind. I have soundbites from her and Janice Kelsey who was a child protested arrested in the 60s in Birmingham. Make sure you'll buy their books: "The 5th Little Girl" and " I woke up with Freedom on my mind."
I also have a soundbite from Dr. Marcus Collins. He's a recently published author of "For the Culture." He talks what people of color can do to help strengthen their cause.
Be sure to check me out each and every Monday at 7PM ET. Like and Follow me on IG and FB @Amythe7th! Peace and Love!
