Revolutionary Hair Covering Product Liberates Black Women To Pursue Water Sports And Vigorous Activities
 Aerobic Hair Cover

Nationwide  -- Linda Brown, a proud senior citizen with an inventive mind, has invented a unique Water Aerobic Hair Cover that solves a problem that has prevents many African American females from doing water aerobics exercising... which contributes to a healthy lifestyle! The Water Aerobic Hair Cover maintains the hairstyle and keeps the hair completely dry when in the water. The wearer’s hairstyle is preserved, and does not require extensive maintenance following use.
Because there is a need for a product that would properly maintain the hairstyle of African American females when doing water aerobics, water therapy, or water sports and activities, many hesitate to do water aerobics. Those that do participate, however, typically wear swimming caps that apply contractive force to the hairstyle which results in the total loss of the hairstyle. Others use hair-wraps, head scarves, and unflattering plastic caps used when sitting under the hairdryer.

NATIONAL NONPROFIT LAUNCHES TO ADDRESS INEQUITIES IN CARE RECEIVED BY BLACK WOMEN THROUGHOUT THE BIRTH PROCESS
National nonprofit launches to address inequities in care received by Black women throughout the birth process

Washington, DC - A new, national organization has been launched to address inequities in the care and treatment of Black women and persons throughout the reproductive years. The National Association to Advance Black Birth (NAABB), an organization that was formerly known as the International Center for Traditional Childbearing (ICTC), was unveiled within the national midwifery community by its Board of Directors over the last few months.

With a scope that is primarily focused in the U.S., and addressing "intersectionality" issues affecting multiple professions and stakeholders, the Board rebranded the organization to match its new vision, mission as well as its current and planned programming.
Dr. Abigail Aiyepola, chair of the NAABB Board said, "We look forward to working with healthcare organizations, policy makers, institutions, associations and individuals alike to authentically challenge the status quo treatment of Black women throughout the birth process.

The shocking statistics and realities of the dangerous care in U.S. healthcare settings must be addressed in systematic ways that go beyond diversity and implicit bias trainings. We need a true revolution in the care and treatment of Black women and birthing persons, which is currently being ignored and dismissed within many U.S. medical establishments, despite the numbers showing increasing fatalities and the serious medical problems in our communities across the country."

POLL: AMERICANS OVERWHELMINGLY FAVOR STUDENTS LEARNING ABOUT SCIENTIFIC RACISM AND SAY BRONX ZOO AND AMERICAN MUSEUM OF NATURAL HISTORY SHOULD APOLOGIZE


Nationwide - According to a new nationwide survey conducted by Discovery Institute, 85% of American adults believe "it is important that students learn about the history of scientific racism in America." Young adults under age 30 are even more supportive, with 93% of them saying it's important for students to learn about America's history of scientific racism.

Most Americans also think that two leading scientific institutions in New York City should apologize for their notorious actions promoting scientific racism in the past.  In September 1906, the Bronx Zoo put African Ota Benga on display in a cage in its Monkey House as an evolutionary "missing link."

Nearly a quarter of a million Americans flocked to the Zoo to see the demeaning spectacle. Some 67% of survey respondents say the Zoo should apologize having sponsored the display.

BLACK-OWNED FIRM LAUNCHES UNIQUE BACKPACK DOLLS FOR YOUNG AFRICAN AMERICAN GIRLS



Nationwide  Young Black girls can now enjoy playing with a very unique toy that reflects what they look like. A new collection, called Toys Like Me(TM), features cute dolls with brown skin, natural hair, and an adjustable strap that allows children to wear it as a backpack doll. The top of the doll can even be unzipped to store small items in a hidden pouch.

Created by a dadpreneur

Many might assume that the concept was created by a woman, but Toys Like Me was actually created by Dante Lee, an African American dad who noticed that most toys sold by major retailers do not reflect what children with brown skin look like. He was also shocked when he watched a YouTube video proving that children of various races believe that toys that look like Black people are "bad" and "ugly".
