The earliest evidence of ancient dentistry we have is an amazingly detailed dental work on a mummy from ancient Egypt that archaeologists have dated to 2000 BCE. The work shows intricate gold work around the teeth. This mummy was found with two donor teeth that had holes drilled into them. Wires were strung through the holes and then around the neighboring teeth.

Originators.

CultureSOUL: The Affrilachians c. late 1800s From original poster:

 “The term Affrilachian, coined in the early 1990’s by Kentucky poet Frank X Walker. Walker sought to recognize people who are both African American and Appalachian, and to recover the multiracial identify of the region. The people of the southern mountains were, from early settlement days, a community of white, Native American, and African American families.”

Black Power beyond Borders: The Global Dimensions of the Black Power Movementedited by Nico Slate
Black Power burst out of nowhere in 1966—a saga of pride, anger, and violence that threatened the civil rights movement and challenged the very fabric of America. Or at least that’s how it seemed to many Americans. The story of Black Power is older, richer, and more global than many recognize. In Black Power Beyond Borders, famous figures like Stevie Wonder and the Black Panthers emerge in a new light alongside lesser known organizations like the Polynesian Panthers. From Harlem and Oakland to India and Israel, Black Power inspired movements that challenged boundaries throughout the world.

Reactions to Barack Obama’s statement on Ferguson

now Holder’s bitch ass has resigned. I’m so tired of these uncle toms.
