    The National Women's History Museum is pleased to partner with the United States Mint, the Smithsonian Institution American Women's History Initiative, and the Bipartisan Women's Caucus as consultants on the Circulating Collectible Coin Redesign Act of 2020.

    The Circulating Collectible Coin Redesign Act of 2020, Public Law No 116-330 (01/13/2021) (“Act”), directs the Secretary of the Treasury (“Secretary”) to redesign and issue quarter-dollar coins that feature designs on the reverse emblematic of the accomplishments of a prominent American woman (“Program”). As part of the Program, each year, over a four-year period (2022-2025), the United States Mint (“Mint”) will issue quarter-dollar coins bearing five different reverse designs, each emblematic of the accomplishments and contributions of one prominent woman of the United States. The contributions may come from a wide spectrum of accomplishments and fields, including but not limited to suffrage, civil rights, abolition, government, humanities, science, space, and arts.

  10. Chev The term 'white' in the KJV is italicized!!! The term 'ruddy' means 'reddish-brown'!!! Let's go to the dictionary to see what the word means then: https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/ruddy As you can see, the term "ruddy" is another term for red or reddish in complexion Which is the actual color of most Caucasians or people commonly called "white". The word "brown" is no where in the definition, stop playing.... There is no such human on this earth that is both White Caucasian with NAPPY [BU
  11. Chev But if you believe that then, please put the reference [1] to the Grecian origins of the Bible being written in Greece; and [2] the Caucasian authors you are referring to. What language was the Septuagint written in? You are a Religious Bully and that is wrong. Define "bullying" please. So, you don't believe that Black people were smart enough to write anything in ancient times? You attribute all of our scholarly contributions to Caucasians? You are trying to put words in my mo
  12. Yes, I think this is the position of many White people whose ancestors benefitted from chattel slavery. They feel that they are guilt free. @Pioneer1 The term 'white' in the KJV is italicized!!! The term 'ruddy' means 'reddish-brown'!!! The very next verse refers to a malefactor with BUSHY HAIR!!! LOL! I explained this before! There is no such human on this earth that is both White Caucasian with NAPPY [BUSHY] hair!!! White people don't have nappy hair! The term 'LOCKS' reinforces the term 'bushy' or 'curly' to confirm the DNA of the ancient people being described.
  13. Oh wow! @Delano Then you do have a lot of intuition! perhaps. @Troy Yes! So true! @Pioneer1
  14. @Pioneer1 Wrong! But if you believe that then, please put the reference [1] to the Grecian origins of the Bible being written in Greece; and [2] the Caucasian authors you are referring to. You are a Religious Bully and that is wrong. So, you don't believe that Black people were smart enough to write anything in ancient times? You attribute all of our scholarly contributions to Caucasians?
  15. I have met a few that were mind blowing. And a couple that were not very good.
  16. Mel I didn't know Black Planet was still operating...lol. Issa Rae is an EXCELLENT businesswoman. A real boss. ....like most children of African immigrants. AfroAmericans are great at marketing their own INDIVIDUAL brands. Issa Rae, Puffy (he'll always be Puffy to me), Beyonce, Perry...are just a few that come to mind. But when it comes to the marketing for the COLLECTIVE....that's when the jealousy kicks in. I don't blame Rae or anyone else for capitalizing off of social media to the fullest. However at the end of the day AfroAmericans must be willin

  18. Yes, absolutely, that is what is necessary for black forums to excel. But as Troy mentioned, it's not happening. That was the point of my response. TODAY most black people who excel in their careers get a boost on white-run social networks. They're publicly owned. So I need to correct myself. White-owned media isn't accurate. Both Davey D and Black Planet today still exist. Some sites report Black Planet, owned by Radio One, has 20-25 million registered users. Even Solange, with her popularity - and her older sister, Beyonce', did their best to drive traffic to Black Planet. Solan
  19. The best analogy is music. let's say we divide the audible spectrum into one hundred sections. And only one instrument corresponds to each section. When you see that frequency it is a category of one instrument. So when I see a transit, a zodiacal degree or a moment in time. I know it's category. So I have a categorical system to qualify a quantity of time.
  20. As a young child, 6 and 7 yrs old, living in the country I would hear female voiced calling my name. When my parents heard me asking what the voiced wanted. Naturally, they kept a close eye on me. Now that I am fifty years older I'm starting to her a female call me again. Should I be afraid? What is it?
  21. According to my mother we have some Mehicano ancestry. Many AfroAmericans with roots west of the Mississippi River have Mehicano ancestry given the history of Mehico and how far that nation actually reached BEFORE the battle of the Alamo that vastly reduced it's geographical size. As I said on another thread, most AfroAmericans have varying amounts of Native American ancestry whether it's documented or not. Most of the Mehicanos we speak of were actually Native Americans racially.
  22. How common is it? These are some of my family/ancestors from back in the day.
  23. Harry Well rest assured you can sleep tight tonight, because we didn't write the Bible. The Bible was put together in Greece by a group of Caucasians.
  24. I don't know a lot of Black men (and NO Black women) who use the word "cunt"...lol. For some reason when hear that word it makes me think of breakfast sausages or patties.
