History 16 notes: 03/28/11 for whole semester Martin r. delany - (1812–1885), political activist, early Afrocentric ideologue , explorer, lecturer, newspaper editor and correspondent, U.S. Army major, and author of several tracts and a novel. Martin Robison Delany's haphazard education began clandestinely before his family's escape from slave-state Virginia in 1822. By 1832, in Pittsburgh , Delany, always proudly black and Africa-respecting, had joined the local African Education, Antislavery, Temperance, Philanthropic, Moral Reform, and Young Men's Bible societies. Further, he cofounded the Theban Literary Society—named after the Egyptian city. Christian nations being - This nation was founded on the Principles of the Bible: Did you know that of the 56 signers of The Declaration of Independence 52 were active members of their church, and over 50% had what would be considered today Bible Seminary degrees? " It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the Bible". - George Washington " The Bible is the cornerstone of liberty". -- Thomas Jefferson" "That Book (the Bible), sir, is the Rock on which our Republic rests". - Andrew Jackson "It is God who gave us life and liberty. Can the liberties of a nation be secure when we have removed the conviction that these liberties are a gift from God?" - Thomas Jefferson 1900 niggerboys - The rhyme 'Ten Little Nigger Boys' was adapted in the late 1800s from '10 Little Injuns', written by Septimus Winner in 1868. It was a standard of the blackface minstrel shows and became widely known in Europe. It was used by Agatha Christie in her novel 'Ten Little Niggers' (1939) which was later re-titled 'And Then There Were None'. The version of the rhyme used in Christie's book does not end as happily as the version used on these lantern slides. 'Ten Little Niggers' was also used as the title for a 1940s book of children's nursery rhymes.   Black inventors (not given credit )- 1) Fire extinguisher (aero-foam) - Dr. Percy L.

During World War II, from a soybean protein, he developed a life saving, fire-fighting foam used by the U.S. Army and Navy. His resulting fire extinguisher was used to put out gas and oil fires.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
