Browse blackcalendaruk's Instagram Henry Ransom Cecil McBay was born May 29 in 1914 in Mexia, #Texas. He has taught a disproportionately #large % of the blacks who hold Ph.D degrees in #Chemistry. In 1951, he developed a chemistry education program in #Liberia on behalf of the United Nations Education, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (#UNESCO). His father, William Cecil McBay, was a #barber who eventually became an #embalmer and #funeral director; his mother, Roberta Ransom (McBay), was a #seamstress.

Early education & employment:
McBay was able to receive a good #education because of his proficiency in math. He was able to gain admission to Wiley College in Texas, and paid for his education by working in the college’s dining-hall and post office. Inspired by his math and chemistry professors, McBay studied #organic chemistry and earned his B.S. degree in 1934.

His Wiley professors helped him acquire a scholarship to #Atlanta to work on his next #degree.
With only $1.65 in his pocket, McBay immediately took a job in the Atlanta #University dining hall so he could eat. After only a few days on campus, his faculty advisor, Professor K. A. Huggins, arranged for him to work in the chemistry #laboratory.

McBay began to help Huggins study new types of plastics that had properties similar to natural #rubber. Soon, McBay was performing his own analysis of the plastics. When the project was finished, he received his master’s degree from Atlanta University and Huggins received his #doctorate from the University of #Chicago. This indirect connection to the University of Chicago would later be important to his career.

After earning his master’s degree, he returned to Wiley College so he could help his younger brother and sister pay for college. However, going “home” proved to be a disappointment. Some faculty members still thought of him as their student and never accepted McBay as an #academic #peer. Because of his devotion to his siblings, however, he remained at Wiley until his brother received his college degree and his parents were able to pay for his sister’s education.

In 1938 McBay took a better-paying teaching job at a #Quindaro, Kansas junior college.

Browse cathyrforeman's Instagram Road Tripp'n at #thewhitneyplantation 
This plantation is the only plantation, in Louisiana, that is dedicated to the lives of slaves. It's quite breathtaking to see the care and effort the owner has put into telling this point of view. 
In this series of images, you will find images of the property from the big house, a slave quarter, a holding pin for slaves being sold on the block, sugar cane kettles and an amazing cypress tree. (I hate that IG crops the images with this tool - I may repost some of these separately)

Browse newbeaconbooks's Instagram A Distant Shore by #CarylPhillips
📚
Set in contemporary England, A Distant Shore is the story of an African man and an English woman "whose hidden lives, and worlds, are revealed in their fragile, fateful connection". As Carl himself has stated: "It is obviously a novel about the challenged identity of two individuals, but it's also a novel about English—or national—identity."

Browse cathyrforeman's Instagram Road Tripp'n back in Selma

Okay, so we almost didn't make it before night fall due to us getting caught up at the Whitney Plantation. I was determined to make it especially seeing as today was Sunday. 
As you can see, it's dusk so I just popped off a few shots and got back on the road.

-

My name is Isaiah Wellington-Lynn and I am currently in the second year of my undergraduate degree at University College London (UCL) where I read Anthropology. 
I have just received an offer to spend my third year studying at #Harvard University starting this August. In order to apply for my Student VISA, I need to demonstrate that I have sufficient funding to cover the program's fees by June 8th. My initial source of funding which would have covered all of the fees has unexpectedly fallen through. In addition to UCL and Harvard, I have contacted a wide range of other charities, foundations, and private individuals however, no funding is available to cover these fees. As such, I am in a challenging and tentatively exciting position of having to raise the total amount in 2 weeks. 
Sometimes we are told that we cannot achieve an aspiration or that our aspirations are too high. We are told that due to our ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, class, or disability, our dream is unachievable. No. What is important, as far as I am concerned, is not how our background can limit us, but rather how our background can propel us to our destination." 1525197819483361781_4615563195
