Remembering Ella Baker

Follow me on IG, Like, and Share as I curate a new exhibit, "LIBERTY COUNTY'S DORCHESTER CENTER: THE HEARTBEAT OF THE CIVIL RIGHT MOVEMENT"

Theme #2: "Citizenship Education Program and Black Women in the Civil Rights Movement"

Black Women were a force to be reckoned with during the Southern Freedom Movement (1951-1968), or Civil Rights Movement. Ella Baker's leadership and influence was very powerful and influential.


As I curate this permanent exhibit, I am invigorated by the intellect, strength, power, and love of democracy lived by these women...Ella Baker, Septima P. Clark, Bernice Robinson, Dorothy Cotton, Fannie Lou Hamer, and Rosa Parks. I am going to do this exhibit much justice by bringing the stories of these courageous and powerful women to life!


A fashion designer, John Fluevog, designed these shoes made with pressed flowers and he named them ELLA BAKER!!!


John Fluevog Fashion Description for these shoes..."Ella Baker was an outspoken and charismatic champion of grass roots activism during the civil rights movement in America. Preferring to carry out her work behind the scenes rather than in the spotlight, she preached and represented the idea that “strong people do not need strong leaders”.


The Bellevue Ella Bakers boast 3" heels with enamel side-buckles, cute side cutouts, and a perfectly placed line of brogue detailing across the foot, and they would love nothing more than to fully support you as you stand on your own two feet. Keep pushing west and beyond your imagination.


*The floral patent Ella Bakers are made from a delicate Italian leather that features real dried flowers underneath a thin layer of clear patent. To avoid damaging this material, please treat it with your finest tender love and care."


THEY ARE WORTH EVERY BIT OF THE COST! PERIOD!
