haushinkaisarealgirlAfrican American flappers and Jazz Age women
HOLY SHIT I HAVE NEVER SEEN BLACK FLAPPERS BEFORE!
There were many fabulous African American flappers. No wonder - it was African American musicians who put the Jazz in “The Jazz Age”! The Charleston dance iteself, which so epitomizes the era, made its debut in the all-Black musical “Runnin’ Wild”, and no one danced that flapper number better than Josephine Baker…save possibly for fellow Black artist Florence Mills, who claimed credit for inventing it (she said she debuted it in her “Plantation Revue” in the early 20s, developing it from a dance popular among slaves). The Charleston song was written by Black composer James P Johnson. Without women and girls like those above, the 1920s would never have roared.
I love the Jazz Age. And so much fiction erases us, but we were there leading the way.
There’s over 300 languages spoken in London
Less than half of the population is white british
There are large areas with little to no white population
so if your show is set in London and has an all white cast you’re not even being remotely accurate

los angeles is only 40% white yet look at every single tv show in LA :/
Much more likely you’ll hurt me. Still, what does it matter? If I’ve got to suffer it may as well be at your hands, your pretty hands.
this is your daily reminder to not forget about ferguson. Keep it going!

You know, I don’t think I’ve ever heard anybody suggest that toilet paper or paper towels in public bathrooms shouldn’t be free. We’d consider it outrageous if that very basic necessity were to be missing, or provided only for purchase.
In the United States, access to tampons and pads for low-income women is a real problem, too: food stamps don’t cover feminine hygiene products, so some women resort to selling their food stamps in order to pay for “luxuries” like tampons. Women in prison often don’t have access to sanitary products at all, and the high cost of a product that half the population needs multiple times a day, every month for approximately 30 years, is simply, well, bullshit.
Jackson Katz knows how to feminist ally. Because instead of talking AT/OVER women about our own problems, he talks to men about theirs, addresses how toxic masculinity is a male issue that effects ALL genders, and recognizes the roles that socialization, patriarchy, and privilege contribute to all of this. Jackson Katz 👍
