The first book I read by my next author spotlight blow me away. The way she intertwined her characters and the powerful message it conveyed caught me by a pleasant surprise. I experienced so many emotions reading the book, I didn’t understand why. Not until I realized one of the characters hit too close to home. Life happens. It will be okay. These are the things Ey’s book zapped me with. Since then, I have become a fan. Her writing style is different, different meaning, off the charts! Once you read one, you won’t be able to stop until you read them all. Kickin’ It With KeKe…

Fun Interview With Cinnamon Rein

Mamie Zwadie King-Chalmers. Iconic figure in water hose picture #BlackHistoryMonth #ThisIsUs #ThisIsAmerica

Mamie Zwadie King-Chalmers. Iconic figure in water hose picture. #BlackHistoryMonth In America's #history- Like colorful beads on a string, Everyone is important. #ThisIsUs #ThisIsAmerica
In the life of the
Black American, there are many like Mamie King-Chalmers who have been forgotten, ignored, and their contributions to our history, distorted and misrepresented.
 I am honored to include Mrs. Chalmers - within the pages of Beads on a String-America’s Racially Intertwined Biographical History.

“Sorting out who played more important roles, or who got their photo taken, isn't as important,” said Hezekiah Jackson IV, president of the Birmingham chapter of the NAACP said. "I don’t think it matters in the full scheme of things," he said. "Some people take it personally."-via Greg Garrison,Birmingham News Senior reporter. May 3, 2013
Personally,  think it matters greatly, and if it did not, why does The NAACP collects the names of 1963 activists as part of its Foot Soldiers Finder Project?
 I believe it matters in the case of Mamie King Chalmers, a great fighter for justice, equality and freedom of the American Black race, the truth matters to her, her legacy, and to the pages of history.
We must remember our "Beads" by the deeds they have accomplished. The inability of Mamie King Chalmers to claim her image from day one, as depicted in Life Magazine, to freely stand and declare her place in history was misaligned and eventually corrected, but the hurt remains. Our words matter enormously. The way we choose to use our words to negate, apologize or honor matters to that particular person, their legacy, and I dare to say- to the audience bearing witness to your apology.  
Mamie has continued her calling by helping others throughout her life and will continue to do so.

I want to express my thanks for all she endured as a youth fighting to attain the civil rights for African Americans which we tend to take for granted. May her fight for justice and equality flow through the blood of her lineage and the fight continue until it is no longer needed.
~Ey Wade.

Mamie Ruth King was born June 19, 1941 in Birmingham, Alabama to a modest, working class family which consisted of five sisters and five brothers. Her father was Berry King Sr., a coal miner for Tennessee Coal and Iron Hampton Slopes Mines in the subdivision of Pratt City, died in 1965 of Black Lung Disease after years of working in inhumane conditions.
Her mother, Mattie Marlowe-King, worked untiringly at Marshall Durbin Chicken Factory in order to provide necessities for the family. Mamie’s Great Grandfather Abe King was a slave at John King plantation in Morango County, working but never fulfilling a debt because the money was taken from him. The conditions of his life and the mistreatment of others living under the threat of Jim Crow Laws, she was inspired to work for a change.

In the 1960's one of the most racial and volatile times in American history, Birmingham was also known as "Bombingham".  In 1963 Dr. Martin Luther King arrived in Birmingham at the request of Reverend Fred Shuttlesworth. A mass meeting at 16th St. Baptist Church campaigning, against segregation, injustices in public places and the Jim Crow Laws that binded them. When Dr King finished his speech, she knew this was her calling unafraid Mamie joined the Alabama Christian Movement for Human Rights and became an active demonstrator, Member,Participant and Organizer, and Demonstrator in the Civil Rights Movement.
Mamie was always in the forefront leading the way.  Her father Berry Sr. prepared lunches and transportation to and from the Protest sites for Demonstrators.  While demonstrating, she suffered attacks of police brutality, police dogs.

Mamie was always targeted by The Public Safety Chief Eugene "Bull" Connors who was a self proclaimed racist. She was jailed on several occasions one time she spent five days in jail under horrible conditions. On Friday May 3, 1963, Bull Connors spotted Mamie and sent the dogs after her. She ran across the street to a doctors office seeking shelter from the vicious dogs, she was cornered. Bull Connors order the Fire Department "to turn the hoses on the niggers so they won't have to take a bath." So they began to hose Mamie, while she was pinned to the wall and alone. Several children made attempts to help her but they weren't successful. Two unidentified young men reached Mamie and used their bodies as shields to absorb some of the water pressure. Many children used their bodies as targets and distractions to help Mamie and the young men. The water pressure was so hard it was like bricks were being hurled at their heads and bodies. Due to the pressure of the water from the hoses, Mamie is now deaf in her right ear.
These events were captured by Black Star Photographer, Charles Moore who later sold the images to Time magazine. Their feature in Time gained national attention - which sparked the Civil Rights Movement and support for Civil Rights changes in 1964. During this era, Mr. Moore followed Mamie throughout the protests, capturing many images of her leading the way.  Mamie continued her activism for freedom by attending the March on Washington with Dr. King and others. She bared witnessed to Dr King’s "I Have A Dream"speech.

In 1997 Mamie found out her identity, experiences, accomplishments, and most of all her pride had been claimed by prominent Alabamian Reverend Carolyn Maull Mckinstry author of While the World Watched.

For almost twenty years, Mamie lived in the shadows, ignored and unable to set the records straight. With the aid of her daughter LaSuria (Kandi) Allman,and her successful letter writing campaign, LaSuria wrote letters diligently to anyone she thought would listen to her. LaSuria contacted the Detroit News Frances X. Donnelly he published his article May 2, 2013.  Birmingham News Senior reporter Greg Garrison published his article May 3, 2013 50 years to the date of the actual hosing.
In an article published August 23, 2013 by Greg Garrison“Civil rights activist Carolyn McKinstry drops claim she was in famous firehose photo in 1963,”  Mckinstry also issued a statement on her website,Words Do Matter, defending her actions by stating she made a mistake in the error of self identification of her image in the Time Life Photo  and that it didn't matter who was in the photo. In the book, While the World Watched, she said "But to those of us who marched, the pictures are symbolic of all of us," she wrote. "The images are reflections of courage.

You still rabid mad? In a land of Immigrants and beautiful colors? #BlackHistoryMonth #BeadsOnAString #ThisIsUs #AmericaLandOfImmigrants #history

Why y'all so mad, though? Why does a person of color, speaking out for him/her ethnicity anger you?

Racism- is a conscious social and institutional action and if it is shown on the job, where you live, shop or are entertained, it can and should be addressed. And true it isn't always just a "white"  thing, but if you ignore the fact it's there,  doesn't make it go away. PSA: If you, as a person of non-color feel you're being racially profiled- it's on you to stand up for yourself. We ain't mad at you. Self-preservation first. Stand up for yourself, but don't beat others down for doing the same.

The feelings on prejudice and discrimination is an individual thing. YOU chose how you will react when confronted with another person's opinions and experiences.

Be rabid mad, but don't think you're so privileged you have the right to take the same angry feelings from the one who is living the discrimination.

Shouting all lives matter because you get upset a Black person says their life matters, ONLY proves you think that a Black person's life really doesn't matter- to you. Cuz, you can damn well bet your life matters to you and push come to shove, you will save yourself, first.

If you're saying "all lives matter," Black lives are in that statement. But you're angry cuz Black people agree with you, Black Lives Matter because all lives matter.
Bringing up every crime statistic to try and prove what race commits more crime and kills their members more than the other- doesn't give you points. Except to say you aren't seeing the big picture - WE AS HUMANS are killing each other over things- ridiculous.
And if you think WE as a Black community, as people of color- aren't angry and working on ending crime in the streets- I'm going to have to call you on that ignorant bullsh*t. That would be the same as me saying, White people don't care nothing about the mass killing of their children and family members, because those white on white crimes occur. A dumba**ed assumption, right?
Bringing up every other atrocity that has been committed in AMERICA to every other ethnicity, while trying to belittle or whitewash 400 combined years of Black slavery and civil rights oppression - then try to tell us to get over it, that's a waste of time. WE can not get over it. Not when the present has remnants of that same terror. If you don't see it, no one can open your eyes.

*addendum* swallow that "but who sold slaves 1st," line. I refuse to lean into that whitewashed lie. Just remember, only winners write the history books. You can't sale what no one buys.  HUMANS were kidnapped, trafficked, tortured, raped, mutilated and kept for generations- as slaves, and that was on American soil.

If you are angry/jealous/envious about TV channels, schools, organizations, award shows, etc. that have the word BLACK, on it, you have to ask yourself "why am I so angry at that word?" It doesn't say "all others excluded"  behind it. Are you angry at all the other ethnicities and races that have labels on their own? If it's simply the word black that makes you angry, you may need to get some help for that, sounds personal. Your insanity is waaay beyond our control.

*addendum* Don't be mad if the race card is played when the game wasn't invented, the deck wasn't stacked and the cards weren't dealt, by the Black race. We were pulled into the game, and now we're playing by your rules. Don't like it, stop the damned games.

If you're crying because nothing is labeled White, don't be, we naturally/automatically assume it's yours, but if you want to run off and label things, feel free. America has been there, seen that- we hated it and fixed that. We'll do it again.
If you want to run around yelling White pride, go ahead- we've been there, lived that, and have seen a lot of strange fruit hanging around to prove it.
If you have to point out how things have improved in society when it comes to some acts of racism- I'll stand and applaud with you. Cuz yeah, now we can eat, work, educate, and piss right along side of you.
Just remember while we're applauding, WE didn't get that privilege because we deserved it as humans, as Americans, as natural born citizens - it's because we had to FIGHT, and argue, and die for it through organizations with the word "black," on it and with the Civil Rights Movement. Same movement that you reap benefits from. Same movement that has now spawned the Black Lives Matter. Same movement that received the same treatment, and anger that is being shown to a new generation. Because we still have to stand and shout that our Black life matters as much as the next persons.

So, why y'all so mad, though?  If the calling out of racism doesn't pertain to you, doesn't help you, depresses you, pisses you off-don't internalize it. It's not for you. Take a seat.
