Anaconda, At-St, and Chicago: Clara Belle Williams, the first black graduate of New Mexico State University. Many or her professors would not allow her inside the class room, she had to take notes from the hallway; she was also not allowed to walk with her class to get her diploma. She became a great teacher, of black students by day, and by night she taught their parents (former slaves) home economics. she lived past 100, after her death, NMSU renamed the English Department building after her. Clara Belle Williams was born in Texas in 1885. She was the valedictorian of the graduating class of Prairie New Normal and Independent College, now (Prairie View A & M University) in 1908. Williams enrolled at the New Mexico College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts in the fall of 1928, after taking some courses at the University of Chicago. While she worked as a teacher at Booker T. Washington School in Las Cruces, she also took college courses during the summer. Most of Williams professors did not allow her inside the classroom because she was Black. But that didn’t stop Clara. She had to take notes from the hallway–standing up! That’s right, she wasn’t even given a chair to sit in many of those classes. She was also not allowed to walk with her class to get her diploma because of the segregation laws. Despite what they did or said against her, she still graduated with a bachelor’s degree in English from NMSU in 1937 at the age of 51. Williams went on to continue her education beyond her graduation date, taking graduate-level classes well into the 1950s. She married Jasper Williams in 1917. The couple raised three sons. She urged her sons to do well in school and succeed in higher education. All three of her children went to college and graduated with medical degrees. One attended Howard University Medical School in Washington D.C and the two other children graduated from Creighton University Medical School in Omaha, Nebraska. They founded the Williams Clinic in Chicago, Illinois. . Her eldest son Dr. Jasper Williams, was chairman of obstetrics and gynecology at St. Bernard Hospital in Chicago, a fellow of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology, past president of the Cook County Physicians Association, and a founding director of the Seaway National Bank of Chicago, now the country’s largest black-owned bank. So you see, if it wasn’t for Clara’s dedication and perseverance, we would have never seen such excellence. via blackdoctor.org ClaraBelleWilliams theblaquelioness

 I learned in a Latin Studies class (with a chill white dude
 professor) that when the Europeans first saw Aztedc
 cities they were stunned by the grid. The Aztecs had
 city planning and that there was no rational lay out to
 European cities at the time. No organization.

 When the Spanish first arrived in Tenochtitlan (novw
 downtown mexico city) they thought they were
 dreaming. They had arrived from incredibly unsanitary
 medieval Europe to a city five times the size of that
 century's london with a working sewage system
 artificial "floating gardens" (chinampas), a grid system,
 and aqueducts providing fresh water. Which wasn't
 even for drinking! Water from the aqueducts was used
 for washing and bathing- they preferred using nearby
 mountain springs for drinking. Hygiene was a huge part
 if their culture, most people bathed twice a day while
 the king bathed at least four times a day. Located on
 an island in the middle of a lake, they used advanced
 causeways to allow access to the mainland that could
 be cut off to let canoes through or to defend the city
