HAPPY #blackhistorymonth —This is a photo from a magazine article featuring SHERRIE SILVER, the CHOREOGRAPHER responsible for @childishgambino’s #thisisamerica dance moves which I’ve been OBSESSED with since @donaldglover HOSTED & PERFORMED on #snl in May 2018 (one of the BEST episodes EVER) — #sherriesilver is a BADASS & she’s only 24. AND she said working with Donald Glover allowed her to be WEIRD. Because he’s weird. #celebrateblackexcellence  #african #artistry #dance #entertainment #gwaragwara #hiphop #music  #professionalweirdos #beyourself #trynewthings #bhm #february2019

Living Black History Legends; Black Women in S.T.E.M.  Gladys Mae West was a "Hidden Figure" until recently. Starting off her career as a math genius, Mrs Gladys Mae West, born to a field & factory worker had an epiphany, "I realized I had to get an education to get out." So, she got an education, graduated at the top of her class, and earned a free seat in college. She started off as a math teacher before going back to earn her masters. The extraordinary mathematician spent 42 years at the Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division. Her gift did not go unrecognized by her supervisors who consistently recommended her to work at the top as project manager. Her mathematical & programming contributions lead to development of the Global Positioning System better known as the GPS. Gladys had no idea that her work would affect the world for decades to come.  Thankful to Mrs Gladys Mae West for being a trailblazer for our young girls that can, because you did ! ๐Ÿ–คโค๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’› #blackhistory #blackhistorymonth #blackherstory #gladywest #hiddenfigures #stem #blackhistoryanniversary #blackhistorydaily #blackwomenlead #blacksheroes #celebrateblackexcellence

Gen. Daniel "Chappie" James Jr. was the U.S. Air Force's first African American four-star general. Upon being promoted to four-star grade on Sept.1, 1975, James was assigned as Commander in Chief North American Air Defense Command (NORAD), a position he held until his retirement on Feb. 1, 1978. He died 24 days later.โ € โ € James -- who served in World War II, the Korean War and the Southeast Asia War -- summed up his thoughts on his role as an American serviceman:โ € โ € "I've fought in three wars and three more wouldn't be too many to defend my country. I love America and as she has weaknesses or ills, I'll hold her hand."โ € *โ € *โ € *โ € #blackhistory #bhm #blackexcellence #celebrateblackexcellence #tuskegee #tuskegeeairman #tuskegeeairmen #blacksinmilitary #blackmilitarygeneral #trailblazers #blacktrailblazers
Born Freda Josephine McDonald in St. Louis, Missouri, on June 3, 1906, Josephine Baker had a thriving career in Paris after being rejected in the United States for being “too skinny and too dark.” She starred in two movies in the early 1930s, Zou-Zou and Princesse Tam-Tam, and moved her family from St. Louis to Les Milandes, her estate in Castelnaud-Fayrac, France. Fast forward some years, Josephine visited the United States during the ‘50s and ‘60s with renewed vigor to fight racism. The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) named May 20 Josephine Baker Day in honor of her efforts. On April 12, 1975, Josephine Baker died from a cerebral hemorrhage. More than 20,000 people crowded the streets of Paris to watch the funeral procession on its way to the Church of the Madeleine. The French government honored her with a 21-gun salute, making Josephine Baker the first American woman buried in France with military honors. Her gravesite is in the Cimetiére de Monaco, Monaco. Freda Josephine McDonald, a timeless beauty! * * * #blackhistory #bhm #blackexcellence #blackbeauty #blackinspiration #blackisbeautiful #celebrateblackexcellence

I believe my purpose is to bring joy to people, to make them laugh, and to share my story to help them. To show people that no matter what, they matter, and they can succeed. No matter how bad things go, no matter how dark your life is, there is a reason for it. You can find beauty in it, and you can get better. I know, because I’ve done it. That’s why my comedy so often comes from my pain #tiffanyhaddish  #femalecomedian #blackcomedian #blackcomedy #blackgirlrock #blackgirlmagic #blackactress #haddish #thecarmichaelshow #melaninmagic #blackcomedians #melaninbeauty #blkgirls #blackbeauties #womenofcolor #brownskinchick #blackhollywood  #brownskinbeauty #mixedgirl #mixedbeauty #brownskingirl #mixxedchick #blackstandupcomedian #funnygirl  #birthdayqueen #beautifulblackwomen #blacktalent  #sheready #sheslay #celebrateblackexcellence

Not an emotional one, but this pic here! 20 years ago we grew up in one of the worst estates in London/EUROPE #chalkhillestate (AND WE LOVED IT), filled with drugs and crime, more roaches than people in every flat. Can you tell? I made some family members, 20 years later! Who knew life would be like this? ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿฟ "See the pressures we had, tryna take it off them. Turned the hangman rope into straight white-gold Cuh we rose from the dungeon. Zeros to the hundreds. And they can write books on us where we come from.
