Black History MonthLIFE SAVERS – BLACKS IN MEDICINE

Did you know African-Americans played a crucial role in THE DEVELOPMENT OF PLASMA, HEART SURGERY AND THE POLIO VACCINE? DR. CHARLES DREW forged a new understanding of blood plasma that allowed blood to be stored and transported for transfusions. He also created a central location for the blood collection process and made sure all blood plasma was tested before it was shipped. This saved countless lives during World War II and gave rise to the American Red Cross Blood Bank. DR. HALE WILLIAMS is credited with having conducted the world’s first successful heart surgery in 1893 and founded the first Black-owned hospital in America, Provident Hospital in Chicago. It was the first hospital with a multi-racial staff. Cells taken from HENRIETTA LACKS, a poor tobacco farmer, were the first human biological cells scientists were ever able to successfully use to grow tissues in culture. It is still unknown what made her cells so remarkable. Those cells were essential in developing the polio vaccine which has made the U.S. polio-free since 1978. (In the 1940s and 1950s, polio crippled more than 35,000 per year on average).

As community college faculty members, we are experts in our disciplines. Of course we don’t always have the best tools to deal with student frustration, disappointment, and confrontations. When things go wrong, we don’t always know what to do. In this workshop we will not only offer research-based, practical, easy-to-apply strategies to engage students and defuse confrontations, but we will capitalize on our colleagues’ expertise and give you a chance to share your winning strategies.

Black History Month

BLACK GREEKS – A WHO’S WHO OF MEMBERS

The historically African-American fraternities and sororities were founded between 1906 – 1963 and have been a force in the Black community in education, philanthropy, socially and politically. Black Greek organizations were initially patterned after the all-White organizations that excluded them, but added in cultural additions such as calls, hand signs, and step shows. Additionally, many members actively participate with the graduate branches of their organizations throughout their lives, not just in college. Notable members include CIVIL RIGHTS LEADERS Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.; Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall, Rev. Jesse Jackson, and W.E.B. Dubois; FORMER SURGEON GENERAL Joycelyn Elders and the FIRST BLACK CONGRESSWOMAN Shirley Chisholm; EDUCATOR Cornel West; WRITERS Nikki Giovanni, Dr. Maya Angelou, and Toni Morrison; ENTERTAINERS Duke Ellington, Aretha Franklin, Paul Robeson, Lena Horne, John Singleton, Jada Pinkett Smith, and Steve Harvey; ATHLETES Michael Jordan, and Shaquille O’Neal; and JOURNALISTS Soledad O’Brien and Tavis Smiley. NOTE: Like Historically Black Colleges, Black fraternities and sororities do welcome non-Black members.

Black History MonthTAKE NOTES – BLACK MUSIC

From the 19th Century through today, African-American and Afro-Latins have been a driving force in popular music around the world. Following the Civil War, Black Americans, through employment as musicians playing European music in military bands, developed a new style of music called RAGTIME (Scott Joplin) which gradually evolved into JAZZ, often called “one of America's original art forms.” BLUES grew up from the Black South and would beget RHYTHM AND BLUES, SOUL, FUNK, ROCK N ROLL, and DISCO. In the 1970s and 1980s, Black artists developed HIP HOP and RAP that would also spread around the world. The influence of African rhythms, musical styles and instruments can also be heard in places like Brazil, Cuba and Puerto Rico where African slaves worked the fields of Spanish and Portuguese plantations. From these places came Mambo, Cha Cha, Salsa and Latin Jazz.

Black History MonthPAVING THE WAY

The Civil Rights Act of 1964, fought for by the Black Civil Rights Movement, actually benefited a wide spectrum of Americans including women, LGBT, Hispanics, Asians and other minorities. The Act outlaws discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex or national origin and requires equal access to public places and employment and the right to vote. The LGBT and woman’s rights movements would take inspiration and strategic tactics from the civil rights movement to achieve their own goals as would Chicano activists and Mexican-American labor leader Cesar Chavez. Chavez led the movement to improve working conditions for migrant farm workers and strengthen the power of unions. Discriminatory hiring and housing practices that restricted many Asians to low level employment and kept them from living in many neighborhoods feel away. Later in the 1990s, Asians could also use anti-discrimination laws to fight the “bamboo ceiling” preventing them from rising to management levels on the job.

Black History MonthLIFE SAVERS – BLACKS IN MEDICINE

Did you know African-Americans played a crucial role in THE DEVELOPMENT OF PLASMA, HEART SURGERY AND THE POLIO VACCINE? DR. CHARLES DREW forged a new understanding of blood plasma that allowed blood to be stored and transported for transfusions. He also created a central location for the blood collection process and made sure all blood plasma was tested before it was shipped. This saved countless lives during World War II and gave rise to the American Red Cross Blood Bank. DR. HALE WILLIAMS is credited with having conducted the world’s first successful heart surgery in 1893 and founded the first Black-owned hospital in America, Provident Hospital in Chicago. It was the first hospital with a multi-racial staff. Cells taken from HENRIETTA LACKS, a poor tobacco farmer, were the first human biological cells scientists were ever able to successfully use to grow tissues in culture. It is still unknown what made her cells so remarkable. Those cells were essential in developing the polio vaccine which has made the U.S. polio-free since 1978. (In the 1940s and 1950s, polio crippled more than 35,000 per year on average).
