I went to get my hair done. It cost me 60 dollars. I got my hair braided in circles. I love thie style. Its new and different.
How many black seamen have you heard of? Did you hear of James
Forten? Anyways, Black people have taken on many roles in life. So I try to
think of the roles that black people take the least of. There are
roles that black people take the most of . But I like to highlight
something special about each role that black people do
and how we as black people have shown our brilliance. Moving on.
The Navy recruited both the free and enslave black people
from the start of the Revolutionary War. Many black people were already
experienced sailors that served in British and state navies. Philadelphia’s
free blacks were more likely to serve on privateers than in the
Pennsylvania navy. Black seamen were specifically valued as pilots.
Others took on roles as shipyard carpenters and laborers.
Maryland and Virginia’s navies made extensive use of blacks, even
buying slaves for wartime naval service. Virginia’s state commissioner
noted that it was cheaper to hire blacks than whites and that white
people got exemption from military service by substituting a slave.
In his memoirs, US. Navy Commodore James Barron, who served
as a captain in the Virginia navy during the war, remembered
several black men among the “Courageous patriots who…in justice
to their merits should not be forgotten.
Whatever we do, we do it big” by me.
There’s so many types of dances. Can you count them all? I mean
every single one. I love to dance freestyle to Rihanna’s music.
I swear she have some of the best remixes and original songs
I’ve ever heard. Her music inspires me to dance the days away.
Enough about that. The reason I’m writing is to tell the story of
a Black man who is influential in the creation of American
Lane developed a unique way of using his body as a
musical instrument, combining African derived syncopated
rhythms with movements of the Irish jig and reel. He was free
born in Providence, Rhode Island around 1825. Lane started
to learn the Irish jig and reel from Uncle Jim Lowe, a dance
hall and saloon performer in New York City, New York.
By the age of ten, Lane was performing in Paradise Square
in the Five Points District of New York, where a heavy concentration
of African AMerican and Irish populations were side by side. The
vernacular dance forms of both of these ethnic group intermingled,
providing Lane opportunity to get the different rhythmic and movement
foundations that facilitated the development of his style of dance.
Lance has an original use of different areas of his feet to
create rhythms, keep time, and improvise complex syncopated
rhythms. This was revolutionary for the 1840s. He used his heels
to make the deeper tones of the bass drum, and balls of his feet to
layer, softer higher sounds. And to keep with his African oral traditions,
Lane included singing and laughter into his performances. This
added another layer to his rhythmic creations.
The combining of the rhythm, footwork, improvisation
and vocals, Lane formed a blended style of African dance and British
Isles folk dance still seen today. Students studying tap in the
21st century can give credit to the styles they learn from Lane.
This man I must say is like a human instrument. What a way to stand out!
I just had to give this man credit. He is better than ordinary, he is
extraordinary. We need more people like him. By the way, did you know
dancers and choreographers make 16.85 per hour according to the
bureau of labor statisitics? (https://www.bls.gov/ooh/entertainment-and-
Black History is everyday. Therefore it should be celebrated everyday.
Black people have alot of accomplishments and inventions. It’s more
than just sports and music, black people once dominated more areas
of life than you notice today. We know the story of black people being
slaves, but ofcourse that is not the full story. Slaves did more than
work in the cotton fields. They invented and re invented and
invented some more. Boo-yah!
Slave labor went into the building of the capitol. The area where
the legislative center of the US sits formerly known as Jenkins Hill. This
hill was a heavily forested area that needed extensive landscaping, as
well as trench digging for the foundation from slaves. This was all before
George Washington laid the cornerstone in 1793. According to Fred Beuttler,
a historian for the House of Representatives, one of the buildings most iconic
symbols, the brass Statue of Freedom, was in part, done through the
diligence of Philip Reid, a former slave. Some of the sandstone in the old east
front of the building has the names of slave laborers who had
cut the stone.
The country’s financial center was named the same name that
a wall was named. That wall was built in 1653 to protect settlers from Indian raids.
Freed and enslaved Africans made up a significant part of the labor pool
that created that well, just like the other infrastructure and buildings
in what is currently Lower Manhattan, including Trinity CHurch. There
was a slave market at Wall and Water streets, and slave ships would
leave at South Street Seaport. According to the church’s archivist,
the parish, which was founded in 1696,used slave labor at several points
during its early history. Many early members contribute slaves to build
the initial church.
Mount Vernon, the home and plantation of the nation’s first
president survived on the labor of hundreds of slaves owned by
George and Martha Washington. These slaves specialized in various
trades, including woodworking and blacksmithing. Most of the structures
spread across the grounds of Mount Vernon, includiings a 16 sided barn
for grain processing and storage, were built by slave laborers and carpenters
often overseen by Thomas Green.
You will find those 3 places listed above and more
places black slaves built on the website. Two thumbs of for black people doing
your thang with pride. Your quote for the day is “I work hard now, so I can have it
easier later on” (by me) Oh, and black people still excel outside and
inside of sports and music today just like in the past. Wake up!
Pants are cute, but dresses are ultimate. I wear pants to be
comfortable , but dresses to look really really nice. They show off
a woman’s pretty legs. They look classy in some instances and they
allow you to appreciate the lady-like nature of a woman.
You can look glamorous without all the effort in a black maxi dress. They
are good for an informal date. In this dress, you’ll look great but comfortable.
It looks good with chic gladiator sandals. When the weather gets colder, match
it up with ankle boots and a motorcycle jacket.
A slip dress is another dress women should have. You can match it up
with a strappy pair of sandals. I especially love the look of the slip dress on
the website, which has a sheer lace on the bottom and a little area of sheer
lace on the top.
And what about the sheath dress? It is one of those type of office
dresses. It’s a black dress with a built in belt and its one single color- black.
It looks classy, it’s in style and so nice on the eyes.
Number 4, is the flared dress. It’s yet another black dress with a
ripple type outline at the bottom. This reminds me of a superhero type
of dress. It has such a pritsy type of style.
Fifth, is the lace dress. It’s like a maze in there. The dress’ whole
outline is of lace. It’s long, up to knee length. It goes well with heels of
any color if it’s a black dress.
What a site! what a site! I love a few of the dresses on this site and there’s a
few I don’t care for.But in honor of the beautiful dresses, I wrote this article. The
dresses I highlighted above flatter a woman’s figure. The other dresses, you decide if
you like them or not just like the dresses I like. Which dresses would you wear?
WHich dresses would you not wear? Or would you wear them all?
Well, black people have a legendary history of
inventing things and spicing things up. Take Fats
Domino, for instance. He is one of the inventors of rock
n roll with this songs “Aint That a Shame ” I’m Walking, ”
THe Fat Man” and his version of “Blueberry Hill.”
Antoine bangs on an old upright piano.
In the past, he took piano lessons and loved them
so much that he quits the 4th grade to play the piano
more. Domino, who has played some neighborhood gigs
with saxophonist Robert Hagans, plays piano at his
sister Philomena’s fish fry, and meeets BIlly Diamon, a
Mr. Domino begans his own band at the
Hideaway CLub on Desire Street, two blocks above club
Desire. This is where he had played with Billy
Diamond’s band and also intermissions for David
Bartholomew’s band. Bartholomew and disc jockey
Duke “Poppa Stoppa” THiele, signs Lew Chudd to his
Domino headlines the biggest shows in rock n roll
history to date. The artists Domino headlines over are
Chuck Berry, Buddy Holly, the Everly Brothers, and
Jerry lee Lewis. Fats dominoes tour dates attract
so much attention because most venues had never had
white people and black people in the same audience.
Fats said the band would, at times, have to go 100
miles out of their way to find lodging that would take
African Americans. This and more, you will learn at this
