So Happy Random Acts of Kindness Day!

Our celebration of Black History Month continues with another SC resident....
Mamie "Peanut" Johnson - Born in 1935, this Ridgeway native loved baseball. However, because she was African American, she was not allowed to be part of the sport's women's league. Luckily, a scout for the all-male Negro League saw her throw and quickly signed her to the Indianapolis Clowns, where she pitched three seasons. At one of her early games, an opponent is said to have shouted, "What makes you think you can strike a batter out? Why, you aren't any larger than a peanut!" She struck him out in three pitches and the nickname stuck!
A local to celebrate during #BlackHistoryMonth
"Angel in Twilight" Maude Callen -- Nurse-Midwife This episode is about Maude Callen (1898 -- 1990), a Nurse-Midwife, who singlehandedly brought health care to rural Pineville, S.C. and the surrounding area ...
It’s been over a month since the world lost Betty White… seeing so many tributes to her is heartwarming. Let’s all take a moment though and reflect on an episode that Rose… and the other Golden Girls tackle the topic of HIV.
In 1990, in an episode titled "72
Hours", The Golden Girls became one of the first sitcoms to even mention the AIDS crisis.In this episode, Rose Nylund is told that during a procedure to have her gallbladder removed, she may have been exposed to HIV via a blood transfusion.
She is tested for HIV, and must wait an agonizing 72 hours for the test results.
The episode aired during a time when AIDS stigma and misinformation was rife - in the same year, a study of US doctors found that less that a quarter believed they should be legally required to treat
patients with HIV. Many people still believed that HIV and AIDS were
"gay diseases" that only affected
But The Golden Girls used the sitcom to tackle this misinformation, showing viewers that anyone couldbe affected by AIDS, not just the LGBT+ community.
The first National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NBHAAD) was marked in 1999 as a grassroots-education effort to raise awareness about HIV and AIDS prevention, care, and treatment in communities of color.
Regardless of the color of your skin it’s important to know your HIV status! Stop by The Wellness Center to get tested of visit thefutureisU.org to find a testing location nearest you!
According to the American Heart Association's 2022 Heart Disease & Stroke Statistical Update, cardiovascular disease remains the greatest health threat for women. ... Wearing red on National Wear Red Day, Friday, February 4, 2022, to raise awareness about cardiovascular disease.

In 1960, her album Don't Go to Strangers went gold. Her last album, Etta Jones Sings Lady Day, was released on October 16, 2001, the day she died.
