I yelled in my car. #Bloop! #TheFacts #Tumblr
I openly admit to the inspiration I get from listening to and reading content from @ihartericka. Please go follow her. I talked about it before, but I really need y'all to check her out and show love to her & her partner Ebony. Also, would love y'all's thoughts on this very talked-about topic, because it comes up a lot, especially in our communities in this age of digital communication & instant gratification technology. Have a great week.
I'm fantasizing about Janet reading this while cuddling with her baby and sipping some hot tea 🤗👌🏾😂
PSA to you guys who ID as Black/Brown and Queer, who find yourselves in the category of being classically desirable. Dudes like Mr. B+lden needs to hear this and start shutting up & listening more instead of yelling at people who are trying to explain that to them. If you're relegating your ideas of being a man to your physical genitalia, stereotypical expectations, power, or wealth, you're no better then the colonizers, slave owners, religious dominators, and all others who have dispensed untold misery amongst our communities for centuries.
(Them: OMG P. Murray's quoting Scripture, dem Church folk are really working on him) Me: OR, or...I'm just reposting some accurate real statements that just so happen to exist in a historical spiritual text? Take it as you will, but if you can find the lie, I'll pay for your lunch. Happy Monday!
It is undisputed fact that from the moment Black people in America applied their genius & distinctly sublime artistic expression to Western classical music, the level of the idiom was raised to stratospheric heights of aesthetic and cultural brilliance. From Sissieretta Jones to Leontyne Price, Black women in the classical world are unparalleled in their prodigious musicality, even in the midst and in spite of this country's ever present misogynoir. When it comes to honoring & lifting up the work of Black women who took to composing these masterworks within the American classical canon, there is literally no limit to what we can & should be doing to execute that goal. It is the very least we can do in homage to just how amazing the creativity of Black women really is. Truly happy to hear this news at the end of a very busy week. Three cheers for Florence Price!!! #blackgirlmagic
