Perfectly Mixed: How A Baby’s Eyes Reminded One Mother To Love Her Own

http://mybrownbaby.com/2011/08/perfectly-mixed-how-a-babys-eyes-reminded-one-mother-to-love-her-own/

Post image for Perfectly Mixed: How A Baby’s Eyes Reminded One Mother To Love Her OwnI imagined what our child would look like years before my daughter was born. The whole idea was a mystery, but more so than most couples I believe, because he’s white and I’m black. Not only were we curious about eye color and if she’d have hair, we wondered what shade she may be. It didn’t matter of course, but it was something I pondered.

When I deliberated over what our daughter would look like, I secretly hoped she would have my eye shape and my husband’s eye color. He has very wide, stunning blue eyes. They were the first thing I noticed when I saw him, and still one of my favorite physical qualities of his. Read more…

The 48th Anniversary of the March On Washington: A Celebration Of MLK’s Words

http://mybrownbaby.com/2011/08/the-48th-anniversary-of-the-march-on-washington-a-celebration-of-mlks-words/

By Denene Millner

Post image for The 48th Anniversary of the March On Washington: A Celebration Of MLK’s WordsA few years ago, I had the distinct pleasure of researching Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “I Have A Dream” speech and his day leading up to the March On Washington. What I found was fascinating, like: Instead of sleeping the night before the march, Dr. King rewrote and tweaked his speech, which he’d given a test run at an earlier rally in Detroit; he gave the speech on an empty stomach, having gone almost an entire day without eating while he took meetings and prepared; they hyped crowd started the march from the Washington Monument to the Lincoln Monument without Martin and his co-leaders, forcing them to scramble to get in front of the massive crowd depicted in the iconic photo pictured, Martin loved his some Mahalia Jackson and specifically requested she sing before he gave his speech. She obliged him with the slow, sad, but defiant slave spiritual, “I’ve Been ‘Buked and I’ve Been Scorned.”

Of course, we all know what happened when Dr. King took the mic; his famous speech spoke of the inequities blacks faced in a land that staked its claim on freedom, implored Americans to take note of the struggles of people of color, and outlined an incredible case for legislative change. Most of us have learned and probably know some measure of the historic speech, hailed as one of the most passionate, profound and revered speeches of the 20th Century. Read more…
