Black History in Tucson | Neighborhoods

Black History in Tucson | Neighborhoods

In honor of Black History Month 2021, we pulled together a collection of news stories, books and recordings illustrating the long history of Black families in Tucson. We include a University of Arizona website that documents the stories of Black explorers and settlers all the way up to a directory of current Black-owned businesses in Arizona. It is a rich and varied history, and this just scratches the surface.

"Companies have so much power to threaten and intimidate, to put people in closed rooms and tell them over and over again how terrible unions are. We have to change that,” Sen. Sanders says, discussing the Alabama Amazon union vote. https://on.msnbc.com/3dWntOw

“The purge alone could disenfranchise as many as 50,000 of the state’s Latino voters, Randy Perez, the democracy director at LUCHA, a community-organizing group, told me. ‘That could be 7 percent of our state’s Latino voters gone in a flash.’”

The @WindsorPD Chief apparently listed the “incident” with #CaronNazario as “obstruction of justice” in his January Police Report to the Mayor and Town Council. I texted him and asked the following and included a screen shot of his report.

In case anyone’s forgotten, this is why @Kaepernick7 took a knee... #BlackLivesMatter

.@WindsorPD, as a veteran; and as a human being; I demand that you hold officers Daniel Crocker and Joe Gutierrez accountable for their police brutality assault of Lt. Caron Nazario.

AZ Governor Ducey just signed #HB2569, which bans local elections officials from accepting nonprofit funds to help run elections.

Out of 30+ proposed voter suppression bills in AZ, this one is among the first to become law. It is identical to one provision of GA's SB202. (1/3)

Army Lt. Nazario was driving his new car home. He was pulled over, pepper sprayed, and arrested without explanation.

This is racism. It’s about the domination and humiliation of a Black man because he asked questions and “didn’t comply.”
