    Black Lives Matter leader shot dead




    Black Lives Matter leader shot dead

    The Black Lives Matter leader known for diving over a barrier to snatch a Confederate flag from a protester on live TV last year was shot dead in New Orleans, police said.

    Muhiyidin Elamin Moye, who went by Muhiyidin d’Baha, was found dead Tuesday morning after being shot in the thigh while riding his bicycle, the Advocate reported.

    New Orleans police spokesman Beau Tidwell said no information about a potential motive or suspects was immediately available.
    D’Baha, 32, moved to South Carolina from Poughkeepsie, NY, when he was 13 and was in the Big Easy on a personal trip, his niece Camille Weaver told the Post and Courier.

    “He loved Charleston and loved fighting for what’s right,” she said. “I’ve never met anyone more committed and hardworking than him.

    He was an asset to the Charleston community and will be greatly missed.”

    The activist drew national attention last February when he was arrested for jumping over a barricade in an attempt to grab a Confederate flag away from a demonstrator at the College of Charleston.

    Members of the South Carolina Secessionist Party had gathered to protest a lecture by activist Bree Newsome, who famously climbed the South Carolina capitol flagpole to remove its Confederate flag in 2015.

    D’Baha was slapped with disorderly conduct charges as a result of the incident, which was caught on air.

    “Not another generation of people are going to be intimidated by this flag,” he told the Washington Post after the incident, adding he’d tried to wrestle the flag away to “help them understand what it is to meet a real resistance, to meet people that aren’t scared.”

    In the hopes of bringing d’Baha’s body back to Charleston for a funeral, his niece started a GoFundMe drive that had raised almost double its $7,500 goal by Wednesday.

    NJ teachers union calls for ‘Black Lives Matter Week’ in all schools

    POSTED 6:17 PM, FEBRUARY 8, 2018, BY CHRISTIE DUFFY

    MAPLEWOOD, N.J. — Black Lives Matter in School Week is a movement that started in Seattle in 2016 when teachers wore Black Lives Matter t-shirts to school to show solidarity.

    The following year, an entire week of action was planned by teachers in Philadelphia. Now, schools in Montclair, Maplewood and South Orange are participating along with dozens across the country.

    "It's important not just for black students but for all students given the political climate of our country right now,” said South Orange-Maplewood School District language arts teacher TJ Whitaker.

    His class of seniors at Columbia High School are currently reading news articles about the Black Lives Matter Movement and they’re reading ‘Look for Me in the Whirlwind’, a book about the Black Panther 21, which recounts a 1969 trial in which black activists were accused of committing acts of violence.

    "I went in not knowing a lot about the movement,” said one student.

    New Jersey’s teachers union, NJEA, voted to join a national call for Black Lives Matter at School Week, which began in Seattle in 2016 and is being observed this year from Feb. 5-11.

    The purpose is to educate students about racism, black history and to continue the conversation throughout the year.

    In the South-Orange Maplewood District, students are not only spending class time on this but speaking events have also been held every night this week. Panels are open to the public. Speakers included black panthers, school segregation experts, LGBT groups and women's rights advocates.

    Black Lives Matter in School Week is also a call to hire more black teachers; mandate ethnic studies in schools; and ban zero tolerance discipline policies which disproportionately affect minority kids.
