Here is what they don’t show in the schools. They name Martin
Luther King, Rosa Parks, Harriett Tubman, but that’s only part of the
black history. That’s only a drop of the black history. If you REALLY
search for the black inventors , black people did WAY more, invented
way more, made more movements.
Therefore I introduce Bessie Smith, who was born April 15, 1894 . She was an African
American woman who entertained by acting, dancing, performing comedy. She got the title
Empress of the Blues because of her forceful vocal delivery
and command of the genre. She was the highest paid black
woman who lived in her time era.
IN 1923, she was signed to Columbia Records. Her
first recording Down Hearted Blues b/w Gulf Coast Blue sold
about 800,000 copies. Glad I know this information to be knowledgeable
and present this to you.
