Giving Thanks …

Thanksgiving turkey video

There are so many things to be thankful for –

being alive …

having children who are very much alive, well, and feisty as ever.

 We should all be thankful for life, liberty, laughter, love, and that we are all still able to share, be mindful of those who have less.

Happy Thanksgiving … 

Imagine a World with NO Nukes & NO Chemical Weapons … that respects ethics while putting legacy land religion and greed aside for the prosperity for their next generation

and No Covid19 … world goals

Get tips on how to safely store, thaw, and roast a turkey.
Here are a few key tips:
Avoid Fresh Pre-Stuffed Turkeys – Don’t buy fresh pre-stuffed turkeys because harmful bacteria in the stuffing can quickly multiply. If you buy a frozen pre-stuffed turkey, look for a USDA or state mark of inspection. Frozen pre-stuffed turkeys should not be thawed before cooking.
Thaw Frozen Turkey – There are 3 ways to safely thaw a frozen turkey: in the refrigerator, in cold water, or in the microwave. Look at the thawing chart, based on the size of the turkey.
Clean Up – Use soap and water to wash hands, utensils, counters, sinks, and anything that comes in contact with raw turkey and its juices.
Cook to 165°F – Cook your turkey to a minimum internal temperature of 165°F. Look at timetables for roasting a turkey in a 325°F oven, based on the size of the turkey and whether or not it’s stuffed.
Discard After 2 Hours – After you’ve enjoyed your Thanksgiving meal, discard any turkey, stuffing, or gravy left at room temperature for more than 2 hours. Or, if room temperature is above 90°F, discard food after 1 hour.

Happy Thanksgiving … Edison R. Wato, Jr. National Museum of African American History and Culture.

NMAAHC -- National Museum of African American History and Culture -- Happy Thanksgiving

As Thanksgiving approaches , we are thankful for all that you have done to help build the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture.
Thanks to the help of friends like you, we broke ground in February 2012, and construction is well underway.
In fact, just this past weekend, we installed two signature objects, a Southern Pacific railway car and a 1930s-era guard tower from the Louisiana State Penitentiary, as part of the museum’s inaugural exhibition on segregation.
We are on track to open our doors in late 2015 thanks to your commitment to supporting and sharing African American history and culture with generations to come. From all of us here, we wish you a very happy Thanksgiving.
Sincerely, Edison Wato signature Edison R. Wato, Jr. Membership Program Manager



Last week Chairman Brock asked NAACP supporters to share with us what they are thankful for this year.

So what do you get when you put all those responses together? A wonderful expression of all the incredible work we are a part of and the amazing families and friends we are blessed to have in our lives.
Share this graphic of what we are thankful for—created by the words of NAACP supporters, for NAACP supporters—with everyone you know today:Share on Facebook

the War on Holidays …


Which Companies Are Ruining Thanksgiving For Their Workers?

It’s that time of the year: conservatives are once again decrying the non-existent War on Christmas.

Meanwhile, retailers across the country are engaged in a very real War on Thanksgiving by forcing their low-wage workers to come in and work on Thanksgiving Day so the rest of us can start shopping a few hours earlier.

Here’s the ThinkProgress guide to the War on Thanksgiving.
