February 27th - Lil Nas X ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Social media can launch many careers in different industries seemingly overnight. Grammy award winner, Lil Nas X is an example of how social media can propel you into stardom. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Lil Nas X, born Montero Hill is from Lithia Springs, Georgia, a small town outside of Atlanta. He utilized social media to build a following to promote his work, making comedy videos. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In December 2018, he released the big time hit “Old Town Road” that would get major attention on the platform, TikTok. Old Town Road, along with the remixes, would go on to break records and win Lil Nas X numerous awards. He holds the title for the longest number one song in billboard history with 17 weeks on top. While at the height of the song’s success he comes out as gay, which is an significant announcement in the genres of hip hop and country. He became the first person of color and first openly gay performer to be listed on the Forbes “Highest-Paid Country Acts.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "If for me, the 'cool dude with the song on top of everything,' to say this at any other time, I'm doing this for attention in my eyes. But if you're doing this while you're at the top, you know it's for real.” - Lil Nas X ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Thank you Lil Nas X for being yourself in an industry where they try to conform you into a box. Your journey thus far is pleasure to witness and I know you are inspiring those around you. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #LilNasX #BlackEntertainers #BlackMusicians #BHM #BlackHistoryMonth #BlackLeaders #BlackInspiration

William Benson Bryant was a United States District Judge of the United States District Court for the District of Columbia and served as the first African-American Chief Judge of the court. As a young attorney practicing in the nation’s capital, Bryant couldn’t even use the library of the District of Columbia Bar Association. However, as a federal judge Bryant’s decisions influenced the outcomes of several famous legal battles of the 1970s. #blackhistorymonth #blackhistory #blackattorneys #attybrown

Public Enemy’s “Fight The Power” lyrics about Elvis and John Wayne’s racism were directly inspired by “Blowfly’s Rapp.”⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣Probably not the “feeling more sexy than a pregnant toad” part.⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣Tap link in bio to read about “The Weird World of Blowfly” in my serialized @PopMatters article “29 Days, 29 Black Music Documentaries for Black History Month 2020”. 🎶 Come back tomorrow to read the next one, for every day in February. 🎞

#BlackHistoryMonth He was declined the use of a toilet in S. C. when he returned from the war, defending jews from hitler, in his uniform, he could not use the toilet!! February 12, 1946 – Isaac Woodard Jr., African American World War 2 veteran decorated for courage under fire during service in the Pacific, is beaten by South Carolina police until he’s blind – just hours after his honorary discharge from the military. While covered up at first, his case soon became widely known and sparked national outrage, creating an initial spark for the 1950...s-60s civil rights and Black freedom movement. While he was still in military uniform on a Greyhound bus from Camp Gordon in Augusta, GA en route to his home, the bus driver cursed Woodard for asking to stop to use the restroom, then pulled the bus over at the next stop and called the police. The Batesburg, SC police beat him, then jailed him and beat him some more to the point of blindness. South Carolina authorities did nothing for 7 months, until Orson Welles, Joe Louis, Count Basie and others started a public outcry. Woodie Guthrie wrote the song, “The Blinding of Isaac Woodard” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Blinding_of_Isaac_Woodard ).

"Being black is not taking a picture that hides my queerness but instead celebrating that I am black and a gay woman and I don’t need to hide one identity to celebrate another⁣." ✊🏾 ⠀ 📷 by @jesslayica . ⠀ Image description: Activist and model Jess Guilbeaux (pronouns she/her ), known for her appearance on season 3 of @queereye is pictured in a white blazer and black shirt.

Fun natural hair fact number four: In order to preserve my curls/style during workouts, I change my routine from high intensity to low intensity. Instead of 30min high intensity, I’ll do 1hr low intensity, therefore I sweat less 🙃😭. And of course keep your hair all the way up and away from your skin 🏃🏾‍♀️👩🏾‍🦱
