    My Hidden Figures Reflection

    By: Breyonna Fox, Blogging Intern with My Quest To Teach
    Jacksonville, Florida

    My first thought when I finished watching Hidden Figures was, "Wow, they actually did all of those things, like they accomplished their goals." I thought this was very inspirational, because back then it was very hard for other races besides Caucasians, to do the things they wanted and love. In the movie there is a part when Mary Jackson's husband even doubts her accomplishing her dreams, showing how un-motivated people were and how many dreams were simply crushed and forgotten.

    Hidden Figures

    Then there was Dorothy Vaughn who wanted to be a supervisor for her group of women who are highly skilled with computers. She wanted to move on with her dreams when she realized Katherine and Mary was moving up with theirs. NASA wouldn't make her a supervisor though, she worked hard and even acted like a supervisor to her group of woman.

    Then one day she got a huge offer, but she would only do it if her girls were with her as well. So they allowed it. She finally became a supervisor. She is the first African American woman to supervise a staff at the West Area Computers Division.

    Another part in the movie shows when she took her sons to the library to get some books to help her out with work, they ended up getting kicked out, just because Dorothy needed the book, but the library was whites’ only. It was upsetting to see how she couldn't check out the book and then the security guard pushed her sons out as well. Then when she got on the bus she still had the book on her and when her sons asked why and she said she pays taxes and those taxes help the library out. I know Dorothy is a very witty and strong person. She stayed determined in what she believed in and knew she could accomplish her goals, she didn't leave her girls and moved them up with her.

    Mary Jackson, wanted to become an engineer, in the beginning she had doubts about it. She was talking about it with her co-worker and she said how impossible it felt, her co-workers told her she could do it, because they were already doing the impossible. I thought about what she said and how she had hope that Mary could accomplish her goals. It showed me even when things feel impossible, they aren't. She even went to court to fight for what she wanted and got night classes at University, an all-white school! That was amazing. I really loved that part, because that filled so much hope in Mary and made her believe more in herself that she could accomplish a lot more things after that, Mary Jackson became the first female African American NASA engineer. Mary is a sassy, brave and determined for what she fights for.

    Last, but not least was Katherine Goble, she was strongly skilled in mathematics and had an analytical mind. She got a new assignment by Al Harrison, so she had to move to a new part of the company.

    When she was getting escorted, the woman told her, "you will be the first black person here. Don't make me regret choosing you. Most people only last a few days, so don't get used to it." Then when Katherine entered everyone stared at her. Her co-workers were rude towards her as well. She went to grab some coffee and everyone was staring at her. She immediately felt uncomfortable and sat down and sipped her coffee slowly. After that incident they got a second coffee maker and it said "colored", she went to use it, it was empty, sending a message.

    This showed me how even though Katherine accomplished her goals, there will always be people trying to bring her down. Then she got upset and explained to Harrison how rude everyone was acting towards her and how she never got pearls and how no one wants to use the same coffee maker as her, since earlier she was always in the bathroom and he would ask where she went. Then the next day he tore down the "whites only" bathroom and the "colored" signs and he said, "no whites or colored, we're all the same here." That showed me how Al Harrison really cared about Katherine as an employee and he didn't care about skin color. Then when Katherine got engaged, her co-workers got her a pearl necklace, which was Harrison's ideas too, which she wore to her wedding. Then later on in the movie, when John Glenn was going to orbit around earth, he said he only trusted Katherine with her calculations and with his safety, he knew she was brilliant and he only trusted her not the computer machine. He was right too, he had trouble up in space, but he got back safe.

    Katherine played a huge roll in John Glenn's journey and Apollo space program landing a man on the moon. In 2015, Katherine received National Medal of Freedom from President Obama.

    This movie showed me that anything you set your mind to you can accomplish. You just have to stay determined and full of courage. This movie is very inspiring and does prove to other women and girls they can do things even when they feel it's out of their reach. Edited by Prof. William Jackson #MyQuestToTeach

    How Millennials Are Finding New Jobs

    In new article, CMRubinWorld asks global millennials to share their secrets for success in a rapidly changing labor market.

    Youth unemployment continues to grow. An increasing number of people around the world have higher education degrees. Despite this, more than half of the workers are employed in jobs for which their levels of education and skills are inappropriate. Skills are mismatched in the world labor market.

    The 15 Millennial Bloggers are based all over the world. They are innovators in entrepreneurship, journalism, education, entertainment, and academic scholarship. C.M. Rubin, founder of CMRubinWorld, asked these young professionals to share their perspectives on the challenges they face to find jobs and how they view the role of education.

    Headlines like “Is College Worth the Cost?” still plague news outlets…” writes Francisco Hernandez, who interviews economist, leading jobs expert and director of the Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce, Anthony Carnevale, to determine if higher education is as relevant as ever.

    “As globalization brings us closer together, schools need to better prepare students to live in a world that demands failure in exchange for the keys to success,” says Jacob Deleon Navarrete.

    “Millennials are the ones who've had to incur the loans they'll spend years repaying, many in jobs which may not, by and large, be particularly satisfying (where they're not actively soul-crushing),” says Harmony Siganporia. Is now the time to “revisit what we define as success”?

    Visionaries such as Tom Stoppard, Bob Dylan and John Lennon inspired the planet yet all opted out of academic programs. James Kernochan recommends that patrons behind the arts “place emphasis on and resources behind programs that give artists structure and a meaningful social milieu when they are done with school.”

    “There’s a stark difference between “academia smarts” and “business smarts,” says Isadora Baum. Baum advocates for embracing failure, building solid relationships and life-long learning.

    As the movement to educate girls gains ground, Sophie Hemery believes that “Sex and Relationships Education is failing young people” and that “Mandatory, high quality and critical Sex and Relationships Education would dismantle the ideology behind such patriarchal shackles.”

    “Is the focus on standardized testing useful for students in their future careers?” asks Erin Farley, who talks to education thought leader, futurist and author Charles Fadel about redesigning curriculum for the new world.

    The Millennial Bloggers are Alusine Barrie, Sophie Hemery, James Kernochan, Kamna Kathuria, Jacob Deleon Navarrete, Reetta Heiskanen, Shay Wright, Isadora Baum, Aw Cheng Wei, Francisco Hernandez, Erin Farley, Dominique Alyssa Dryding, Harry Glass, Harmony Siganporia and Bonnie Chiu.

    These remarkable young people have produced shows and founded companies. They have been featured on Forbes ‘Asia 30 Under 30’ list and honored by Asian Women of Achievement Awards. They have been awarded numerous scholarships and fellowships. They hold Bachelors, Masters, and Doctoral degrees. They run schools and train educators in underprivileged communities. They have taught all over the globe in environments ranging from maximum security prisons to elementary schools.

    CMRubinWorld launched in 2010 to explore what kind of education would prepare students to succeed in a rapidly changing globalized world. Its award-winning series, The Global Search for Education, is a celebrated trailblazer in the renaissance of the 21st century, and occupies a special place in the pulse of key issues facing every nation and the collective future of all children. It connects today’s top thought leaders with a diverse global audience of parents, students and educators. Its highly readable platform allows for discourse concerning our highest ideals and the sustainable solutions we must engineer to achieve them. C. M. Rubin has produced over 500 interviews and articles discussing an expansive array of topics under a singular vision: when it comes to the world of children, there is always more work to be done.

    The African Story Must Be Told To African Americans

    by William Jackson @wmjackson

    Promoting unity among Africans and African Americans in the growing digital age. The African Diaspora, an interconnected bloodline of history, legacy, new families, lost families, rapes of the body and of the mind. Endangered unification and associations. The fight to balance assimulation and self-destiny. The connection between African Americans and Africa is connected with blood and tears. There is no denying that slavery spread the lives of millions of Africans to impregnate America with free labor, slavery on a generational scale, colonization and lost identity.

    History and legacy has shown that Africa is the cradle of civilization and the history of the world started with Africa, even the bible states this.

    The story is factual, the evidence seen in the faces of millions of African Americans that are decedents of the slaves that were forcibly brought to this nation. It can be seen from South America, the Caribbean Islands and other sites that where in possession of slaves. The struggle for levels of freedom are still being sought ironically resulting from slavery in America and colonialism in Africa. The history being taught in schools in too many cases is a travesty, filled with false truths, misconceptions, lies and information that is intended to be safe and easily manipulated to create a level of understanding and thinking that does not encourage cultural growth or continued investigation by children.

    African American students are not interested in a continent they do not see their connection to, African children only see what the media wants them to see of America whether it is music, videos, movies and the sports athletes and entertainment powerhouses that lack historical or cultural relevancy.

    The intellectual understanding of the importance of Africa is sometimes lost in the haze and misdirection that people perceived from "nature" shows. Africans are in to many cases fodder for discriminatory shows that show bare chested women in desert sands, children whose protruding bellies are from malnourishment, starvation and war.

    Men who with yellow eyes sit around fires with spears, glazed looks and missing yellowed teeth. The media shapes and molds these stories and are sometimes the only story that has been shown for decades or half centuries. There is another side of Africa that is rarely shown. The Africa You Rarely See

    This is why "The Danger of a Single Story" by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is important to share as I have in my classes,

    No one person or group should be allowed to talk about, mold the conversation around, or dominate the discussion of another culture. All parts of the African diaspora are of historical and cultural significance.

    Soyinka and Achebe "Africans Have a Story Inside to Tell" #MyQuestToTeach an additional blog created to show the power of African storytellers that in history by colonization were systemically silenced because foreigners learned that storytelling shared messages that provided hope, courage and unity.

    Blogging by Africans is critical to share the stories that influence education, business, commerce and impact collaborative efforts that transcend race, religion, gender and alternative lifestyles. "blogging is critical today more than ever." Anthea Adams - Twitter

    The stories of Africa must be shared with African Americans to open dialogues of collaboration and content sharing. The damage by slavery and colonization must be put aside and the damage repaired by connections that embrace brotherhood and sisterhood. Moving African Americans and Africans to new opportunities in education, business, commerce and foundation of reconnection and respect. The importance of telling factual stories is real and powerful. If people are told a lie and false truths long enough they will begin to believe them even if they know there is no truth.

    The Responsibility of Bloggers of Color

    by William Jackson, M.Edu
    Social Media Visionary and Higher Education Instructor

    Bloggers of Color have untapped influence in their communities and the nation. BoC can impact their communities in so many diverse fields ranging from promoting educational attainment (why school is important), obtaining financial growth and stability in their communities; encourage political activism (why voting is important), importance of family stability, community unity projects and development and helping to provide intellectual escalation (being smart is cool).

    Bloggers of Color are influential, can inspire and inform and a great way to promote those in the community doing great things. The concept of “It Takes A Village” is on a digital level.

    Looking at #Ferguson and seeing how the media is manipulated, guided and even coerced in reporting events, BoC are vital to understanding the grass roots of issues where is matters. During protests, meetings, collaborations and even what is happening in homes BoC can develop a unique trust and confidence to tell the truth were mainstream media either is not interested or does not have access.

    The platforms available can touch lives to meet people where they are, from email lists, webinars, Google Hangouts, online classes, BlogTalkRadio, Podcasts, Vblogging, Microblogging and even the simplest of texting. Mobile technology has opened doors to content that can be accessed through mobile devices as people are on the go. The power of mobile technology can be seen in developing situations on the ground. The growth of mobile technology shows that 63% of consumers have Smartphones (Business Insider 2014) and it continues to grow.

    These devices when applied correctly can tell a story that does not require editing or an “expert” the truth is seen and heard. The growth of Bloggers of Color (BoC) is evident as news agencies continue to put a slant and a skew on stories that have cultural overtones. When truth and facts are blurred by video snippets and audio bites used to give just enough information to create a digital emotional response.

    The news media can manipulate their audiences emotional and psychological expressions and responses. Malcolm X’s statements have historical value and prevalence when speaking on how the media can manipulate our emotional and psychological reactions. Bloggers of Color through their content can link conceptual ideas that people share, being a “friend” has a different meaning in an online environment. The networking concept allows and encourages connections that increase the sharing of information, expanding of ideas and open doors for intellectualism.

    Bloggers of Color should take advantage of a new concept coined by Leisa Reichart “ambient intimacy,” keep in touch with people with a level of regularity and intimacy that you wouldn’t usually have access to, because time and space conspire to make it impossible.” So using technology to stay connected continuously has benefits and detriments. BoC must learn to make known the difference between what is vital and important and what is personal and intimate for them. State by Reichart, “It (Social Media) makes us feel closer to people we care for but in whose lives we’re not able to participate as closely as we’d like.”

    Points for Bloggers of Color (BoC)

  1. Create a Platform for Unity and Unification

  2. Create Opportunities for Collaboration – “Bloggers cannot view each other as competition, but as collaboration to completion.” Lamar Blogging While Brown Conference 2015

  3. Create opportunities to dispel intimidation, foster acceptance and respect for other bloggers

  4. Create a Niche where your space is one of safety, support and trust

  5. Create an atmosphere of approachability where those who have questions feel comfortable in asking them.

  6. Create a Brand that has a “visual identity” don’t just base your Brand on text content, people need to see who you are and the direction you are going. Creating a “visual identity” means using the right graphics and photos.

  7. Create the understanding that your Brand is your promise, when you make a promise don’t break it

  8. Understand the Visual Identity is important in the age of digital content to separate you from others that try to duplicate and imitate you

  9. Create opportunities for engagement, allow for open discussion so people can reach you and reach out to you. Your intelligence and intellect are valuable assets to influencing people and situations.

    Bloggers of Color can create awesome and transformative paradigm shifts in their communities and on a national and even international levels if they apply their creative and intellectual abilities in the right direction.

    Fergueson, We Have A Problem!

    Recent revelations of racist e-mail by two now-resigned Fergueson, Mo. police supervisors and its former town clerk confirmed what Black protesters screamed for years. Coming from a small Southern town, Fergueson's traffic fine-driven apartheid inflicted upon its Black majority rings all too familiar.

    In Savannah, Ga., being a Black driver meant being slapped with every citation under the sun as part of a gauntlet run regularly. The Port City is also majority Black and despite the same pigment in city hall and police headquarters, community relations rots on the civic vine. In New Orleans, where I type, the civic vine connecting police with its Black majority has withered and died.

    The common thread weaving together the fates of Fergueson, Savannah, New Orleans and related locales is Democrats rule these ravaged roosts. Every ignored complaint, dismissed march and presumption by hostages that no one respects them can be laid at the well shod feet of Democratic rulers.

    These cities can't blame the parish/county nor state GOP for biased policing allegations and unresponsive authorities. Democratic mayors and councils direct public safety within each and said direction arguably blocks legitimate concerns. I implore the imaginary mission control of history to note, "Fergueson, we have a problem!," and so do other majority Black cities whose Democratic leadership hasn't improved police/community relations beyond 1960s impasses.

    Niche Parent Conference 2013

    - Niche Parent Conference of 2013 held in Hollywood, Florida.

    Attended by over 100 participants that are Bloggers, Mommy and Daddy and VBloggers and multimedia digital creators of content.

    The Niche Parent conference displayed the growing intellectual influence and cultural diversity that has embraced not only the skill sets of Blogging, but the dynamic ability to create content that is read, interactively engaging and blending multimedia elements in the blending of various technologies. “People of Color and People of Culture must get involved in creating digital content to share the great things that diversity brings to the United States of America.”

    Wm Jackson with Daddy Bloggers

    William Jackson, Educator and Blogger Blogging defined as: the Art of writing, the ability to tell a story. Blogging has grown from a hobby to a business model and entrepreneurial entity that requires Bloggers to be Content Creators and Multi-media Architects. The Creation of Content is important to make a connection and build a relationship with the readers and viewers.

    Tools are diverse in the creating of inspirational and motivational information that are imbedded in many Social Media platforms: WordPress, Google +, Google Analytics, Blogger, Twitter (Microblogging), Youtube, Photobucket, Vine, Tumblr and the list continues to grow and evolve. Social Media platforms are broadening in the lives of people and groups that create content. Expanding on the generational differences and cultural dynamics of our society. One of the valuable lessons are Bloggers should no longer Blog using traditional text, they must be able to interact with their readers on an intellectual and even emotional level.

    Sharing content and resources that keep the subscriber engaged and thirsting for more information that empowers, excites and educates. Relationship building is key to a successful blogging presence. This being my first Niche Parent Conference I was blessed with being honored to attend through the efforts of Black Bloggers Connect and Niche Parent Conference. The opportunity of being engaged with the talents of passionate Bloggers inspired me to expand my ability to tell a story, to motivate and inspire through digital means. The Niche Parent Social Media Conference, the #1 Conference celebrating diversity among Mommy Bloggers, Daddy Bloggers and Parenting Bloggers showed the diversity not just in gender, but the cultural richness of Latino, African American, Cubano, Haitian and Caribbean cultures.

    Being the minority in the gender area I and my sister Dawn were warmly greeted and accepted into the fold of Mommy Bloggers who have taken Blogging to another level. The presence of Daddy Bloggers shows there is a growing interest in men to Blog about their lives, their children and the everyday challenges of being a father, husband, mentor and role model. Traditionally it is thought men do not Blog, but this is far from the truth, men do Blog and are very good at it. As an educator (Engineering and Technology) and father I try to create content either by writing or Vlogging that is interesting and even fun.

    The Daddy Bloggers present are a great example of how men can be successful content creators and make money: Jim Silver, Ben Floyd and Manny Ruiz spoke of the need for Dads to share their experiences to strengthen families and share a unique solidarity that all fathers have being responsible and accountable as fathers and husbands.

    Blogging is not just an entertainment pastime, or a part time hobby, it has grown to being a business that requires the spirit of entrepreneurialism. Having a business mind is required because of the necessity of Marketing and Branding the Niche of the Content Creator, the individual that has a vision for sharing information. The Blogger creates content based on not what the Blogger wants, but what the consumer needs. It is important that the foundation of success is based on an agreement, a relationship based on trust and respect.

    Defining the skill sets of a Blogger has grown past the clinical definition of a dictionary; it requires the precision of a Marketing Plan. The plan must include a level of interactivity, there must be sustainability, adaptability and respect that will keep readers and viewers loyal to the Brand. The Niche Parent Conference of 2014 is a dynamic experience that opens doors of collaboration, cooperation and cultural empowerment. The skills of intellectualism and innovation are growing and expanding in the richness of multimedia content creation.

    Sessions that were influential ranged from: Start-up Secrets & Tools for the 21st Century Woman, Let’s Roadmap the Blog Route to Success, Vlogging – Making it Practical, Fun & Professional and even focusing on the physical aspects which is important. Discussed through the use of Yoga: Energize your Blogger Body was well received and attended as a movement adventure to continued good physical health and mental peace. Even members of the Tom Joyner Morning Show (Passion, Platform, Profit) with Nikki Woods, CeCe Clark, Mary Boyce, Kim Grimes participated sharing their experiences, incites and ideas as entrepreneurs and business leaders in a competitive industry.

    Blogging and Vlogging have quickly grown into a dynamic and fast paced business. Content creators must be prepared to think of their talents and skills as a potential business. The session: Stop Thinking Like a Blogger and Start Thinking Like a Business! with Lamar Tyler and his wife demonstrates that men and women have embraced their passion for Blogging and Vlogging, taking it to another level, a level that demands consistant attention in order to be successful. The business side should be explored and expanded, allowing for the opportunity to grow into markets that provide not just wealth, but building relationships that educate, engage and endure.
