Transcript: Black History Month Black American Heroes Martin Luther King Jr. Dr. King, who would have celebrated his 80th birthday on January 15, 2009, came to symbolize the civil rights movement of the 1950's and '60's through his speeches, protests and marches. As a result of his leadership and the efforts of hundreds of thousands of activists, the US Congress passed many important laws that helped move America towards the goal of a land based on equality under the law after a past marred by the bondage and segregation of African-Americans. Harriet Tubman Malcolm X urged black people to give up the Christian religion. He preached that the high crime rate in black communities was basically a result of African Americans following the lifestyle of Western, white society. During this period Malcolm X, following Elijah Muhammad, urged black people not to participate in elections. Malcom X Rosa Parks Most historians date the beginning of the modern civil rights movement in the United States to December 1, 1955. That was the day when an unknown seamstress in Montgomery, Alabama refused to give up her bus seat to a white passenger. This brave woman, Rosa Parks, was arrested and fined for violating a city ordinance, but her lonely act of defiance began a movement that ended legal segregation in America, and made her an inspiration to freedom-loving people everywhere. Harriet Tubman gained international acclaim as an Underground Railroad operator, abolitionist, Civil War spy and nurse, suffragist, and humanitarian. After escaping from enslavement in 1849, Tubman dedicated herself to fighting for freedom, equality, and justice for the remainder of her long life, earning her the biblical name "Moses" and a place among the nation's most famous historical figures.

They were run out of the building for sitting in the section marked "whites only". Five years later, in 1966 Bond was back in the Georgia Statehouse again... This time he was there to be sworn into office as a member of the House of Representatives! But members of the House refused to swear him in. Bond was a member of the SNCC. The Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee. The SNCC had issued an anti-war statement and Bond endorsed it. Bond was accused of being a communist and anti-American. Bond's supporters wanted him to apologize, modify the statement or do whatever it took to just get the seat in the House. The US Constitution gives all of us the right to freedom of speech. Bond believed he had the right to speak out against the Vietnam war. He wanted to stand by what he believed in. Bond said black people..."have died for the right to vote in Georgia. Now they are saying, what good does it do to get the vote, to elect representatives, if those elected must face attitude tests and loyalty oaths?" Should he stand by his statements? Should he modify it in some way? Should he compromise? This was just one of the many battles he fought for civil rights and equal opportunities of African-American people.

Transcript: Dr. Charles Richard Drew was the first person to develop the blood bank. His introduction of a system for the storing of blood plasma revolutionized the medical profession. Drew first utilized his system on the battlefields of Europe and the Pacific during World War II. He organized the world's first blood bank project in 1940 - Blood for Britain. He also established the American Red Cross Blood Bank, of which he was the first director. Drew was born in Washington, D.C. June 3, 1904 to Richard and Nora Drew, and was the oldest of five children. In his youth he seemed headed for a career in athletics and the coaching field rather than for medicine, starring as a four letter man in Dunbar High School, Washington. He went on to study at Amherst College, where he was a star athlete, all-American half-back and captain of his Amherst College football team. In 1941, Dr. Drew returned to Howard University, where he gained new distinction, particularly in the training of young surgeons. He had spent a total of seven months in the two blood projects, yet in this very brief but productive period of his professional life, he made an outstanding contribution to what was to become a highly successful World War II blood procurement effort. He researched blood plasma and transfusions in New York City. It was during his work at Columbia University where he made his discoveries relating to the preservation of blood. By separating the liquid red blood cells from the near solid plasma and freezing the two separately, he found that blood could be preserved and reconstituted at a later date. Mankind suffered a great loss in 1950 when, at the age of 45, Dr. Drew was killed in an automobile accident while driving to a scientific conference. His pioneering medical work has endured. How many lives have been saved because of his genius at turning basic biological research into practical production methods is impossible to determine. But it is a certainty that mankind owes a debt of gratitude to Charles Richard Drew. http://inventors.about.com/library/inventors/bldrew.htm http://www.ideafinder.com/history/inventors/drew.htm Blood+Bank= :D Subject 3 Subject 3 Conclusion Born: June 3,1904 Dr. Drew was married in 1939 to Minnie Lenore Robbins, and they had four children, Bebe Roberta, Charlene Rosella, Rhea Sylvia, and Charles Richard, Jr. Shortly after, Dr. Drew earned his Doctor of Medicine degree from Columbia University in 1940, with a 200 page doctoral thesis under the title "Banked Blood: A Study in Blood Preservation".

Help us represent the rightful place of BME nurses in your professional history by donating items which help others understand your experience. The RCN Archives welcomes donations of personal papers, diaries, photographs, memoirs, casebooks and badges which we can use to help promote future historical research. celebrating the Black and Ethnic Minority contribution to UK nursing Respect for diversity among staff can better equip the NHS to provide appropriate and effective services to a diverse public The RCN is working with its members to ensure that the glass ceiling is broken so that real opportunities are opened up for BME nurses to attain senior and executive positions that match the talent and skills that they already have The Mary Seacole Leadership and Development awards provide the opportunity to undertake a specific health care project, or other educational/development activity that benefits and improves the health outcomes of people from black and minority ethnic communities The NHS is the largest employer of black and minority ethnic (BME) people in England, 183,000 people from these backgrounds are employed by the NHS (14.75% of the workforce.) When the NHS began in 1948 there were 54,000 vacancies for nursing staff in Britain and so the government funded recruitment drives to attract people to jobs in hospitals. The response from British-born women was poor and so in 1949 the Ministries of Health and Labour, Colonial Office, General Nursing Council and Royal College of Nursing began focussing on attracting people from the British colonies, especially the West Indies.
