The Negrito are a class of several ethnic groups who inhabit isolated parts of Southeast Asia.[1]

Ati children, the Philippines

Their current populations include 12 Andamanese peoples of the Andaman Islands, six Semang peoples of Malaysia, the Mani of Thailand, and the Aeta, Agta, Ati, and 30 other peoples of the Philippines. Reports from British traders also speak of negrito people on Borneo (Sarawak). (Journal of the Malayan Branch Royal Asiatic Society, Vol. XXIX, part 1, 1956)

Negritos are the most genetically distant human population from Africans at most loci studied thus far (except for MC1R, which codes for dark skin).

They have also been shown to have separated early from Asians, suggesting that they are either surviving descendants of settlers from an early migration out of Africa, commonly referred to as the Proto-Australoids, or that they are descendants of one of the founder populations of modern humans.[

There's a good book about Celia and her trial for killing her rapist. Let me go look in my room for it and I'll come back with the name.

I haven't read the whole thread so please excuse me if this has already been posted. 


LITTLE RUBY BRIDGES - MADE HISTORY, 1960

In the spring of 1960, Ruby Bridges was one of 6 black children in New Orleans to pass the test that determined whether or not black children would go to a all white school. (She attended the William Frantz schools all by herself, whilst the other 5 went somewhere else). Six students were chosen; however, two students decided to stay at their old school and three were transferred to Mcdonough. Her father was initially reluctant, but her mother felt strongly that the move was needed not only to give her own daughter a better education, but to "take this step forward ... for all African-American children." Her mother finally convinced her father to let her go to that school. 
Former United States Deputy Marshal Charles Burks later recalled, "She showed a lot of courage. She never cried. She didn't whimper. She just marched along like a little soldier, and we're all very proud of her."
As soon as Bridges entered the school, white parents pulled their own children out; all teachers refused to teach while a black child was enrolled.

MALCOM X SPEECH 5 MAY, 1962

''Who taught you to hate the texture of your hair? Who taught you to hate the color of your skin, to such extent that you bleach to get like the white man? 
Who taught you to hate the shape of your nose, and the shape of your lips? 
Who taught you to hate yourself, from the top of your head to the soles of your feet?
Who taught you to hate your own kind—who taught you to hate the race that you belong to, so much so that you don’t wanna be around each other....?''
~Malcom X 1962

Never heard this before!

ELLA FITZGERALD - THE RACISM SHE FACED IN THE 50'S

Apparently in the 1950s, a popular nightclub, Mocambo would not book Ella Fitzgerald because she was black. Fortunately for Ella, she had a powerful and unlikely benefactor, Marilyn Monroe.

“I owe Marilyn Monroe a real debt…it was because of her that I played the Mocambo, a very popular nightclub in the ’50s. She personally called the owner of the Mocambo, and told him she wanted me booked immediately, and if he would do it, she promised she would take a front table every night. She told him - and it was true, due to Marilyn’s superstar status - that the press would go wild. The owner said yes, and Marilyn was there, front table, every night. The press went overboard. After that, I never had to play a small jazz club again. She was an unusual woman - and ahead of her time and she didn’t know it.” - Ella Fitzgerald

ADY SARAH FORBES BONETTA DAVIES 
photographed by Camille Silvy, 1862 
Sarah Forbes Bonetta Davies was a child born into a royal West African dynasty. She was orphaned in 1848, when her parents were killed in a slave-hunting war. She was around five years old. In 1850, Sarah was taken to England and presented to Queen Victoria as a “gift” from the King of Dahomey. She became the queen’s goddaughter and a celebrity known for her extraordinary intelligence.
